Résumé

Several different examples of scattering processes are analyzed, and for each, semiclassical approximations are discussed. The scattering of magnetic monopoles by charged particles is an illustrative example demonstrating rainbow and glory effects. In this example, exact classical and quantum results are also obtained and comparison made with semiclassical results. For the scattering of alpha particles by nuclei, the influence of absorption and of the phenomenon of orbiting on the cross section are studied semiclassically, and comparison with experiment is made. For the scattering of atoms by atoms, rainbow, glory, and orbiting effects may all exist, and one example is worked out semiclassically in detail. The scattering of electrons or muons by nuclei is discussed briefly and the semiclassical analysis shown not to be valid at any energy.
