Chapter 3.1.1 fromIn this chapter we see how scattering in nuclear physics gives amplitudes and cross sections not only for elastic scattering, but also inelastic and rearrangement reactions. We build on the standard approaches of Austern[1] and Satchler[2], but place more emphasis on the non-perturbative methods which are now more widely used[3].Scattering,
