Anomalous scattering factors Δf′ and Δf″ have been calculated relativistically for Cr, Fe, Cu, Mo, and Ag Kα radiations for the atoms Li through Cf. An interpolation scheme for other wavelengths is included in a separate report. Relativistic calculations of the photoelectric cross section have been made and the integral for the principal contribution to Δf′ has been evaluated numerically without approximation to the form of the cross section‐vs‐energy curve, as has been done in previous… 
Anomalous scattering factors of some rare earth elements evaluated using photon interaction cross-sections
The real and imaginary parts,f’(E) and”(E) of the dispersion corrections to the forward Rayleigh scattering amplitude (also called anomalous scattering factors) for the elements La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm,
Atomic X-ray scattering factors for forward scattering beyond the dipole approximation
It is shown that the usual dispersion formula used in all calculations of the real part of the anomalous scattering factors, f', is only valid within the dipole approximation. A new correction term
Elastic scattering and the associated anomalous dispersion in the atomic region 13 ⩽ Z ⩽ 82 at 30.85 keV
We have measured the differential elastic scattering cross sections in the atomic region 13 ≤ Z ≤ 82 using nearly monoenergetic unpolarised Cs Kα (30.85 keV) radiation at a scattering angle of 90°.
Measurements of anomalous dispersion in rayleigh scattering of characteristic X-ray fluorescence
SummaryWhen using characteristic fluorescence X-rays or γ-rays of energy under 100 keV to study the Rayleigh scattering of photons from atoms the effect of anomalous dispersion is not in general
Accurate determination of anomalous scattering factor near Fe K absorption edge
When X-ray energy is close to the absorption edge, the anomalous scattering factor changes drastically and the determination of the real part f'(E) becomes important for crystal-structure analyses.
Calculation of anomalous scattering for ions and atoms
The anomalous scattering factors g', g" for forward scattering are generated for neutral Ne and for Ne 2+, 4+, 6+ and 7+ ions, utilizing a dispersion relation integration method, for photon energies

Self-Consistent Equations Including Exchange and Correlation Effects
From a theory of Hohenberg and Kohn, approximation methods for treating an inhomogeneous system of interacting electrons are developed. These methods are exact for systems of slowly varying or high
A Simplification of the Hartree-Fock Method
It is shown that the Hartree-Fock equations can be regarded as ordinary Schr\"odinger equations for the motion of electrons, each electron moving in a slightly different potential field, which is
