The elastic and inelastic scattering of particles (such as electrons, neutrons and light atoms) and light quanta by many-particle systems is an important technique for determining the structure and dynamics of solids and liquids. We do not want to go into all the details of such scattering experiments but restrict ourselves to those aspects which are interesting in the context of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics.
