Cross sections for collision between electrons and neutrals in a gas discharge are essential for theoretical and computational developments. They are also required to interpret and analyze the results of experimental studies on swarm parameters namely drift velocity, characteristic energy, and ionization and attachment coefficients. The cross sections and swarm coefficients are interconnected through the most important electron energy distribution function. The traditional method of solving the… Expand
