In response to the recent measurements of the 54.4 eV e-H(2p) reduced Stokes parameters by Gradziel and O'Neill (2004 J. Phys. B: At. Mol. Opt. Phys. 37 1893) we perform corresponding calculations using two recently developed techniques. These are the propagating exterior complex scaling direct approach to the solution of the underlying Schrödinger equation, and the box-based convergent close-coupling method. We find the results to be almost identical to the Laguerre-based convergent close-coupling method of Bray and Stelbovics (1992 Phys. Rev. A 49 1066). Hence we are unable to explain the substantial discrepancy with experiment for the P∼ 3 parameter in the vicinity of 30°.
