Abstract

The Fock-Tani transformation in the Jacobi three ⟶ two-body reduced-mass system is carried out and the first-order T matrix is found to be identical to that for the full three-body transformation. The Fock-Tani transformation in the reduced-mass system in which particle b is fixed at the origin is found to give a first-order T matrix with an error of mc /mb in the initial momentum wave function. First-order differential and total cross sections are calculated for a+ + (b+c-)⟶(a+c-) + b+ where |abc|= {ppe, epe, μpμ, μdμ, and μtμ}.
