Since the (e,2e) DCS are normalised to unity at the common point x = p/2, only relative changes as a function of energy can be determined.

As no physical model yet exists for the variation of the Blalbl0 with energy, the following procedure is adopted:

This method was used as there is no simple general analytical form for a cubic spline.

The polynomial fit then gives the compact set of 396 parameters blalbl0j :

Figure 1 shows cubic spline fits to the Blalbl0 parameters. The b-parameters which define the normalised DCS as a function of energy and angle can be downloaded here as a text file. More details of the parameters can be accessed by linking from the individual pictures in the figure.
