where 9 is the scattering angle in the laboratory system of coordinates.
In the relativistic case the mathematical operations of the previous Section 4.7.3 are also valid with the only exception that it becomes necessary to include relativistic composition of velocities. Considering that u << c we shall obtain the following changes in Eq. 4.7.20, 4.7.21, 4.7.19, 4.7.23:
V'1 = (v + bi )/(l + vbi/ c2), v'2 = (v + b2 )/(l + vb2/ c2),
X = arcsin
Taking into account that in the relativistic case
AE = maccz
