This is essentially the same as the equations for note 163. There is non zero energy transfer. So the theory of inelastic electron and neutron scattering for example will suffer from the same catastrophic defects as the theory of Compton scattering. Elastic scattering is defined as zero energy transfer and magnitudes of wave vectors the same. Scattering theory is self inconsistent on the most fundamental level so will remain so on any level. So I will develop this point next. The vast amount of experimental work done on crystallography is of course unaffected, but its natural philosophy has been overturned by UFT 158 to 162, and notes so far for 163. Scattering theory in general rests on:
E = h bar omega = h bar (omega sub f – omega sub i) p = h bar Q = h bar (kappa sub f – kappa sub i) and only these equations are used (www.isis.stfc.ac.uk, google “inelastic scattering theory”). The trouble starts when one uses E = h bar omega = gamma m c squared and we already know from equal mass scattering in UFT 158 to 162 that the theory will collapse entirely. The masses must be replaced by covariant masses. |
