Abstract

Explicit expressions for the electron-impact excitation, ionization, and resonant-recombination cross sections are derived in the average-configuration distorted-wave approximation. Calculations using these expressions are applied to several types of phenomena in electron-ion scattering where comparison with other theoretical methods and experimental measurements can be made,
