The Wigner phase-space description of collision processes Academic Article uri icon


  • This year marks the 50th anniversary of the birth of the celebrated Wigner distribution function. Many advances made in various areas of science during the 50 year period can be attributed to the physical insights that the Wigner distribution function provides when applied to specific problems. In this paper the usefulness of the Wigner distribution function in collision theory is described. 1983 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
