Title

New and Old Theoretical Tools for Evaluating Cross Sections for Ion-Atom Collisions

Abstract

The close-coupling method for ion-atom collisions using atomic orbital and molecular orbitals as basis functions are reviewed. Recent development using hyperspherical close-coupling method is discussed. Examples for a few collision systems are examined to resolve differences among theoretical calculations and experiments.
