Inversion relations for exclusive and inclusive cross sections within the independent electron approximation
Abstract
Inversion relations expressing inclusive cross sections as linear combinations of exclusive cross sections are derived within the independent electron approximation without exchange. Both binomial and multinomial probability distributions are used. No particular model is used for P(b>). A criterion for applicability of the multinomial probability distribution to describe secondorder transitions for the different collision channels, also independent of P(b>), is presented. The coupling of ionization and capture of outershell electrons is discussed and the inversion relations derived are applied to the analysis of coincidence measurements of projectile and target charge states. Parametrization and scaling laws for single and double ionization of outershell electrons of manyelectron atoms are considered by studying the influence of the electron capture channel.
