Front Cover
Academic Press, Jul 26, 1994 - Science - 473 pages
0 Reviews
The latest volume in the highly acclaimed series addresses atomic collisions, assessing the status of the current knowledge, identifying deficiencies, and exploring ways to improve the quality of cross-section data.Eleven articles, written by foremost experts, focus on cross-section determination by experiment or theory, on needs in selected applications, and on efforts toward the compilation and dissemination of data. This is the first volume edited under the additional direction of Herbert Walther.

Key Features
* Presents absolute cross sections for atomic collisions
* Uses benchmark measurements and benchmark calculations
* Discusses needs for cross-section data in applications
* Contains a guide to data resources, bibliographies, and compendia
