The substantial progress that has occurred during the 1990s in the field of electron-atom-collision theory is discussed. We show how a solution of a small-model three-body problem, using the convergent close-coupling method, has led to numerous applications involving real atomic collision systems. Consequently many fundamental electron-atom collision processes are considered as 'solved', and accurate collision data of interest to science and industry have become available. However, we suggest...[Show more]
