The Mathematical Foundations of Neutron Scattering

Excerpt: Scattered by any assembly of nuclei. His result makes use of Fermi observation that the actual interaction between a neutron and a nucleus may be replaced by an effective potential that is much weaker than the actual interaction. This pseudo-potential causes the same scattering as the actual interaction but is weak enough to be used in the perturbation expansion derived by Max Born. The Born approximation says that the probability of an incident plane wave of wa...
