Timedependent wavepacket theory for electron scattering
Abstract
Timedependent wavepacket theory is formulated for fairlylowenergy elastic electron scattering. The Schroedinger equation is solved numerically in the time and two spatial dimensions for {ital e}He scattering in the staticlocalexchange approximation. The angular distribution is calculated from a single pass through the region of the target and shows good agreement with the angular distribution calculated with knowledge of the phase shifts from the solution of the set of timeindependent radial equations.
