The Few-Body Problem in Dynamic Systems
Ed. by Michael, Schulz
- Covers various experimental and theoretical approaches
- Discusses Experiments with Magneto-Optical Traps, Role of Projectile Coherence Properties, Crossed Beam Experiments, and Anti-Particle Collisions
Aims and Scope
The few-body problem (FBP), the essence of which is the Schrödinger equation is not solvable for more than two interacting particles. Atomic collisions are ideally suited to study the FBP because the underlying force is essentially understood and because simple systems can be studied for which kinematically complete experiments are feasible. The book would cover various experimental and theoretical approaches in atomic collision research.
