(e,2e) Processes

  • Colm T. Whelan
Part of the Physics of Atoms and Molecules book series (PAMO)


In this paper I would like to present a few observations on some of the exciting recent developments in the study of (e,2e) processes. It would be impossible to present an exhaustive review here, rather my ambition is to focus on a few simple points and to try to give a feeling for the field.
