13.2 Energy transfer as a function of impact parameter. bmm log 6- curve is a
representation of the correct result. In the interval bmtn < b < fcmax the energy
transfer is given approximately by (13.2). But for impact parameters outside that ...
For impact parameters b less than this uncertainty, classical concepts fail. Since
the wave nature of the particles implies a smearing out in some sense over
distances of the order of Aa;, we anticipate that the correct quantum- mechanical

is a cross section obtained by integrating over all possible impact parameters.

A soul crushing technical manual written by a sadist that has served as the right of passage for physics PhDs since the dawn of time. Every single one of my professors studied this book, and every ... Read full review
