Funding Information:
The differential cross sections for general two-body scattering processes involving elastic, inelastic, and rearrangement scattering of an unpolarized beam of elementary or composite particles and an unpolarized target of elementary or composite particles are evaluated from the relevant transition (1’) matrices using the formulas of Blatt and Biedenharn \[1) with Huby’s * Research supported in part by the National Science Foun-dation under research grant no.
