Eikonal-Born Series Methods in Electron-Atom Scattering
There have been two developments in recent atomic collision theory which are particularly important from a fundamental point of view. The first of these was the use of the closure approximation to study the second term in the many-particle Born series, primarily by Moiseiwitsch and his collaboratorsl. This enabled one to envision the possibility of systematically correcting the well-known and often used first Born approximation. The second development was the introduction of the Glauber approximation2 into atomic physics. By making certain key simplifications of the closure method through the use of eikonal concepts, this approximation gave a particularly attractive way of summing parts of perturbation theory to all orders.
