Sudarshan's semi-classical treatment of correlation functions is applied to the study of quantum corrections to the Van Hove function. In its generalised form, it enables one to choose the best correlation function for a given potential. Higher-order correlations are also sketched briefly and the details are similar to those considered by Oppenheim and Bloom.
