    Is the derivation of the Compton Effect formula shown on wikipedia the way Compton originally did it?

    There's a link to his paper off of wikipedia:

    Phys. Rev. 21, 483 - 502 (1923)

    In Fig. (1a) he sketches out the usual simple kinematics for a "incident quantum" of light scattering off an electron.
