Abstract

The Fock-Tani Hamiltonian is found for systems containing two protons and one electron. It is shown that a post-prior symmetrical T-matrix element for a+ + (b+ c-)→(a+ c-)+b+ may be found from that of the simpler proton-proton-electron system if a and b are treated as isospin projections of a single type of nucleon. The Coulomb-exchange contribution to the inelastic (isospin flip) scattering of this system gives a first-order T matrix that is completely symmetrical with respect to post and prior interactions and orthogonalizations, a symmetry of the exact T matrix.
