This volume provides a thorough, up-to-date treatment of the application of quantum scattering theory to low-energy atomic collision phenomena. The first unified expository approach to the subject in book form, it
includes much new information reflecting the results of recent investigations. The material is divided into three main areas: static field scattering, electron-atom collisions and atom-atom collisions. Within these areas, individual topics are presented in a complete and self-contained manner, with emphasis placed on the understanding of the physics involved and the calculation of reliable cross sections. Intended primarily for researchers and graduate students in atomic physics, atmospheric
physics, and astrophysics, this book will also prove a highly accessible source of information to the chemist interested in atomic scattering.
