    • Abstract

       

      Feynman diagram method of treating atomic collision problems in perturbation theory is presented and matrix elements are calculated for a number of processes. The result for the resonant charge transfer in hydrogen is identical to the well known OBK value. However, in processes like collisional ionisation, the results are different from those obtained by conventional methods.
