Description

I have developed a general calculation for the spectrum of photons back-scattered from photon-electron collisions. This first calculation differs from similar calculations used in models recently published in peer-reviewed journals in that it is firmly rooted in a four-vector energy-momentum analysis; this distinction is vital for working with high energy, relativistic photon-electron collisions.
