Introduction to the School Program
Atomic theory developed initially through independent particle models, which account to a large extent for spectra and for inelastic collisions. Combination of these models with treatment of particle interactions by lowest order perturbation theory has extended the range of successful applications, particularly to include inelastic collisions by fast particles and the Auger effect. In the last 10–15 years, on the other hand, experimental progress has presented us with a rapidly expanding body of detailed evidence on phenomena in which particle interactions play a more elaborate role, exceeding the scope of ordinary perturbation treatments. Reviewing and sharing our present knowledge of these more complex phenomena — which are often characterized as “correlation effects” — is the objective of this School.
