    • Abstract


      Gas-surface scattering is speculated as a meaningful problem for understanding the physics of fractals. Fractal behaviour can be associated with a self-similar geometry on a solid surface. The interaction potential for a gas atom or molecule approaching the lattice depends primarily on local factors but a parametric dependence of the cross-section data on the fractal dimension can be conceived. Such a dependence on the self-similar character of a multi-centred target is more explicit when multiple scattering is included. Application of approximation schemes like the previously developed average wavefunction method to this problem is suggested.
