If a sum is taken over scattered polarizations and an integration is made over all
angles, there results a total scattering cross section, 3ir r2 This exhibits the typical
resonant line shape with half-width given by T, and peak cross section, ...
The absorption of radiation, as distinct from scattering, has already been
discussed for an oscillator in Section 13.2. ... it is appropriate to define the total
cross section as the energy (17.68) absorbed per unit frequency interval divided
by the ...
The difference between the total cross section and the scattering cross section is
the absorption cross section, sometimes called the reaction cross section ov(a)).
All three cross sections can be written in a suggestive form based on (17.70): ...
