Abstract

Several errors in the theory of the angular correlations dealing with the electron-impact excitation of hydrogen atoms to n=3 levels and with the detection of the cascade Lyman- alpha photon in coincidence with the scattered electron are noted and corrected. In one case, a state multipole, derived from measurements of the circular polarization of the photon, has to be substantially readjusted.
