Abstract:

The equivalence between continuous and discrete scattering modeling has been examined at two statistical levels 1 the direct interactionladder approximation continuous - Twersky approach discrete 2 the first order smoothing approximation continuous, discrete. Full first and second order moment equivalence has been established only at the level of the first order smoothing or bilocal approximation and, even then, for soft scatterers with weak transition operators.
