Comparison between two methods of solution of coupled equations for lowenergy scattering
Abstract
Cross sections from lowenergy neutronnucleus scattering have been evaluated using a coupledchannel theory of scattering. Both a coordinatespace and a momentumspace formalism of that coupledchannel theory are considered. A simple rotational model of the channelinteraction potentials is used to find results using two relevant codes, ECIS97 and MCAS, so that they may be compared. The very same model is then used in the MCAS approach to quantify the changes that occur when allowance is made for effects of the Pauli principle.

Lowenergy electronmolecule scattering: Comparison of coupled channel treatments of e/sup /N/sub 2/ scattering at 13. 6 eV using various approximations to the static and exchange potentials and an approximate polarization potential
We consider vibrationally and electronically elastic electron scattering by N/sub 2/ at 13.6 eV impact energy. We use four combinations (S, SP, SE, and SEP) of the static (S), exchange (E), and polarization (P) potentials, four target molecular orbital wave functions (INDO/1s, INDO/1s with double zeta core, and CadeSalesWahl and Ermler ab initio), and two local exchange approximations (semiclassical and Hara freeelectron gas). We also consider the effect of using an accurate wave function for the spherical average and lowest order anisotropy and an INDO/1s wave function for higher order anisotropies, as well as other combinations. The effects of approximationsmore » 
Quantum reactive scattering in three dimensions using hyperspherical (APH) coordinates. 5. Comparison between two accurate potential energy surfaces for H + H sub 2 and D + H sub 2
Accurate 3D quantum calculations for zero total angular momentum are presented for the H + H{sub 2} and D + H{sub 2} reactions utilizing both the LiuSiegbahnTruhlarHorowitz (LSTH) potential energy surface (PES) and the double manybody expansion (DMBE) PES. The APH formulation of reactive scattering is employed, and the adiabatic basis (surface) functions are calculated by using the discrete variable representation (DVR) method. The DMBE PES was found to be more reactive than the LSTH PES for both reactions, in accord with its lower classical barrier height.
