Quantum Calculation of Coulomb Excitation. M1 and M1-E2 Mixed Transitions and Classical Approximation
Formulas are derived for magnetic-dipole Coulomb excitation, including spin effects. Numerical results are presented graphically. The mixed M1-E2 transitions are similarly discussed, and the simple pure-mixed analysis is shown to apply except for anomalous cases of slight interest. A classical approximation is discussed in detail, and applied to higher multipoles.
