Main Question or Discussion Point

Dear Forum,

I am searching for a good explanation and worked example that shows how to convert a inelastic cross-section from the lab frame to the center-of-mass frame. I need to first convert the energy (x-axis) from the lab frame to the COM frame. In addition, I need to convert the corresponding dσ/dΩ (y-axis) into the COM frame as well. I have been unable to find a good description of this in any book or notes.

Regards,
CJ

well one can see the treatment of nuc; reactions in
Atomic and Nuclear Physics . Vol.II, By Prof. S.N. Ghosal

Publisher :S. Chand & Co., New Delhi , India
(Chapter X -deals with the two descriptions- and as Dr. Ghoshal was an experimentalist he has dealt the interrelationship of two descriptions elaborately.)
