Multi-level calculations

An extensive effort was put together by Ponomarev and his colleagues to perform the task of truly multi-level calculations in the Adiabatic Representation [99]. The results for scattering on a bare nucleus have been published in an atlas of cross sections, referred in this thesis as the ``Nuclear Atlas'' [16,17,18]. The accuracy for the purely three-body problems (i.e., atomic and molecular effects ignored) is claimed to be $\sim 3$% [24]. For a recent review of multi-level calculations and a comparison with other methods, see [100,101].
