The Theory of Auger Transitions reviews the Auger effect theory, relating it to the broad spectrum of atomic and physical theory.
This book discusses the Auger effect involving discrete and continuous states of the atomic system, which can be used as a good testing ground for fundamental atomic theory, such as the various atomic models and their concomitant wave functions. The application of Auger spectroscopy to surface chemical analysis is also elaborated.
Other topics include the symmetry and invariance, theory of the Auger process, coulomb field and coulomb wave functions, and symmetry-breaking and classification of states. The central-field calculations, many-electron atom, advances in Auger theory, and Auger electron spectroscopy and its application to surface science are likewise covered in this text.
This publication is intended for scientists and atomic physicists, but is also useful to theoreticians and graduate student specializing in atomic physics.
