A standard technique for solving three-dimensional momentum-space integral equations in scattering theory is their transformation into one-dimensional equations in terms of partial waves. However, for some scattering systems where a large number of partial waves contribute this technique is not efficient. In this work we explore the alternative approach of solving these equations directly without partial-wave expansion. For illustrative purposes we adopt the coupled-channel approach and consider a well-studied static-exchange model of electron-hydrogen scattering.
