# Elastic — Elastic scattering of electrons from ions and atoms

## Description

Abstract A computer program, Elastic, is presented which calculates the elastic scattering cross section as a function of scattering angle for electrons colliding with ions or atoms. The scattering is computed in an independent particle approach through calculation of the scattering phase shifts for an electron encountering a parameterized model potential. The functional form of the potential implemented is approximately valid for all ions and atoms and has parameters that are based on a fit of Hartre... Title of program: Elastic, Green-pot Catalogue Id: ADJH_v1_0 Nature of problem In an independent particle approach, the program describes the elastic scattering of an electron from a model potential representing any atom or ion.
