Abstract

Numerical computer programs were developed to calculate the classical elastic scattering orbits, deflection functions and differential scattering cross-sections for a heavy-ion nuclear reaction model.

Critical points of the deflection functions and differential scattering cross-sections were examined.

Semiclassical modifications were developed for future study to account for the phase relation between independent orbits that lead to the same scattering direction.
