Quantum Electrodynamics (2nd ed.)

Volume 4

by V B Berestetskii, L. P. Pitaevskii, E. M. Lifshitz

Several significant additions have been made to the second edition, including the operator method of calculating the bremsstrahlung cross-section, the calcualtion of the probabilities of photon-induced pair production and photon decay in a magnetic
field, the asymptotic form of the scattering amplitudes at high energies, inelastic scattering of electrons by hadrons, and the transformation of electron-positron pairs into hadrons.
