9.These momentum distributions will, of course, depend on the temperature.
10.The condition leads to if is the value of at and by definition This agrees with (29), except when In the latter case the condition implies only that and thus may be large.
11.See E. Gerjuoy (1971), Proc. Phys. Soc. London Sec. B 3, L92 for a discussion of the different volume dependence of the various rate terms.
12.When the double scattering rate does not vanish, then (32) diverges and must be replaced by the results of Ref. 3. This, however, does not alter the qualitative conclusion.
