Elastic cross sections for intermediate-energy e$^-$ - CH$_4$ collisions

J.L.S. Lino


We report an application of the Schwinger variational principle with plane waves as trial basis set. Elastic differential cross sections (DCS) for the scattering of electrons by CH$_4$ in the 10 to 100~eV energy range are available and our differential cross sections are found to be in reasonable agreement with existing measurements.
