ESTIMATION OF THE EFFECTIVE SCATTERING CROSS SECTIONS OF ELECTRONS BY ALKALI ELEMENTS TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE STRONG COUPLING
FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY DIV WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OHIO
Seaton Proc. Phys. Soc. 68-A457, 1957 showed that when calculating the excitation of optically allowed transitions with large forces of the oscillators it is necessary to take into account the strong coupling, because the use of the weak coupling method for example Borns method yields for these transitions overestimated values of the excitation cross sections, at times exceeding the theoretical limits. The system of equations is presented for the wave functions of Fo and F1 describing elastic and inelastic scattering in an approximation of two states. Author
