12.Recently, H. G. Bennewitz (private communication) has carried out certain elastic scattering experiments involving polarized beams of TlF which have bearing on the repulsive anisotropy. Earlier work by H. G. Bennewitz, K. H. Kramer, W. Paul, and J. P. Toennies, Z. Physik 177, 84 (1964), has led to a fairly reliable value of the coefficient for TlF‐rare gas.

14.This conclusion is based on extensive checking with different sets of integration intervals for widely different integrand cases. For any given entry the penultimate digit listed can be considered accurate. By way of confirmation, it is noted that for a large number of cases the sum of the computed transition probabilities (even for the limited number of transitions considered) totals as much as 0.999, yet in no case does it exceed unity.
15.These results are, of course, somewhat too small due to the neglect of the contribution from low impact parameters.
16.However, the contribution to the total inelastic total cross section from any individual transition is small, and is dominated by the one or two small peaks in its partial total cross section curve (i.e., angular distribution).
17.This question has been considered in some detail by J. L. J. Rosenfeld (private communication, June 1965),

17.An alternate approximation scheme has been proposed by K. P. Lawley and J. Ross [J. Chem. Phys. 43, 2930 (1965)].
