Rotational Excitation by Slow Electrons. II
Cross sections are calculated for rotational excitation of a homonuclear diatomic molecule by collisions with very slow electrons. The mechanism is assumed to be the long-range quadrupoleExpand

Variational Principles for the Acoustic Field
Variational principles are presented for the scattering amplitude in the general acoustic scattering problem, and, for spherically symmetric scatterers, for the phase shifts. Integral equations forExpand

On Tensor Forces and the Theory of Light Nuclei
The quadrupole moment of the deuteron indicates the existence of non-central tensor forces in nuclei which destroy the constancy of the total orbital angular momentum. With simple operationalExpand

Outgoing Boundary Condition in Rearrangement Collisions
The boundary condition on the solution to the nonrelativistic time-independent Schr\"odinger equation for arbitrarily complicated rearrangements of spinless particles is carefully examined. For realExpand

IONIZATION GROWTH IN A GAS WITH A CONSTANT ELECTRIC FIELD
A model for the growth of ionization in a gas with a uniform electric field is studied by Laplace transform techniques. The total electron‐molecule cross section is taken inversely proportional toExpand

SOLUBLE THREE-DIMENSIONAL MODEL FOR TOWNSEND'S /cap alpha/
A model gas is considered in which all electron-molecule cross sections are isotopic and depend inversely on the velocity v. Collisional energy loss is neglected. The Boltzmann equation for the modelExpand

Charge Transfer in Molecular Hydrogen
The effects of the molecule on electron capture by protons in hydrogen gas have been investigated in first Born approximation with different types of electronic wave functions. It always has beenExpand
