Abstract

An expression for the cross-section describing electron capture by protons in atomic hydrogen is derived from an expansion based on atomic wave functions. Full account is taken of momentum transfer and of the non-orthogonality of the wave functions of the initial and final states by the method due to Bates. The cross-sections have been computed for proton energies from 100 to 1 MeV. In the low energy limit, the results agree with the p.s.s. calculations of Dalgarno & Yadav and in the high energy limit with the calculations of Brinkman & Kramers.
