Greetings,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is my question:

What is the difference between the labframe and the center of mass frame in QM scattering theory? Is it that in the labframe both particles are moving towards each other and in the center of mass frame one particle is static and a second one is moving towards the stationary particle?

Thanks for any clarifications.
