Abstract

We report a theoretical calculation for electron-impact ionization of atoms that includes short-range electron-atom effects for wave functions that satisfy the exact asymptotic boundary conditions. Results of this theory, which we label as the three-body distorted-wave Born approximation, are compared with experiment and other theories for ionization of hydrogen and helium for incident-electron energies from 4 to 18 times the ionization energy.
