The Microscopic Description of Inelastic Scattering and Charge Exchange with Complex Projectiles

  • V. A. Madsen


The simplest microscopic picture of inelastic scattering is one in which each nucleon in the projectile interacts with each one in the target in first order with no exchange of particles between them. This picture was formalized several years ago1,2,3) and has been the theoretical framework within which many analyses of inelastic scattering have been carried out. The nuclear wave functions for the target are obtained from some sort of structure- model calculation, such as a diagonalization in a truncated space, resulting in spherical shell-model description.
