Historically, data regarding quantum phenomena has been obtained from two main sources. Firstly, from the study of spectroscopic lines, and, secondly, from scattering experiments. We have already developed theories which account for some aspects of the spectrum of hydrogen, and hydrogen-like, atoms. Let us now examine the quantum theory of scattering.
