Title: The generalized oscillator strength: A new perspective

Abstract

The Lassettre limit theorem is validated through a universal formula, constructed from rigorous bounds on the generalizes oscillator strength (GOS), which permits extrapolation through the unphysical region to K{sup 2} = 0. This amazingly simple formula can also be utilized to normalize the experimentally determined relative differential cross sections to the optical oscillator strength. In the new representation, each GOS curve converges separately to the optical oscillator strength regardless of the applicability of the first Born Approximation. Examples will be presented from various atomic transitions.
