Outgrowth of lectures which the author has given at the Universities of Berkeley, California, Brussels and Louvain. Includes bibliographical references and indexes. From the Preface: "The purpose of this book is to give a self-contained and unified presentation of the methods of quantum collision theory, with applications to atomic, nuclear and high-energy processes. It is primarily aimed at graduate students in theoretical physics, although it is hoped that any physicist whose main interest lies in microphysics will also find it useful." "The book is divided into four parts. The first one is devoted to the presentation of the basic definitions and to the study of collision kinematics. The former is done in Chapter 1, where the various types of collisions and the concepts of channels and cross sections are defined. Chapter 2 entirely deals with kinematical questions, first in the non-relativistic case and then for relativistic collisions." A few chapter titles: Part III. General Scattering Theory has chapters 13-21. Titles are: 13; Quantum Dynamics; 14. The Collision Matrix; 15. Transition Probabilities and Cross Sections; Chapter 16. The Determination of the Collision Matrix; 17. Two-Potential Scattering; Part IV. Applications Chapter 18. Two-Body Collisions; 19. Three-Body Problems; Chapter 20. The Optical Potential; 21. Topics in Multiparticle Collisions. There are 21 chapters, 6 appendices, author index and subject index.
