On the derivation of the nuclear resonance scattering formula. Lawson, Robert Davis
In this thesis detailed calculations are given showing the equivalence of Siegert's derivation of the nuclear resonance scattering formula, and Hu's derivation of the same formula. Although at first glance it appears that Hu has given a solution to the problem using an entirely different formalism, we have shown that no matter what the final expression for the resonance scattering cross section may be, it must be the same in the case of Siegert's calculation and that of Mng Hu, provided of course, that no more or less arbitrary approximations are introduced into the calculations.
