# Analytic first Born atomic scattering: A computer algebra solution using Maple V

## Description

Abstract Scattering amplitudes in the first Born approximation for electron-hydrogenic ion scattering are readily solved analytically for target's undergoing near ground state transitions. However, analytic solutions involving transitions to higher energy states are not so easily performed. We present a computer algebra solution and a Maple V Release 4 software package for analytically solving the first Born approximation to the electron-hydrogenic atom scattering problem. Given initial and final stat...
