It is shown that the first-order results of the recent many-body theory of inelastic scattering (see abstr. A25430 of 1971) can be derived by a direct application of the distorted-wave and random phase approximations to the usual expression for the inelastic scattering amplitude. The result is derived both in the second quantized formalism and by the standard application of the distorted-wave approximation coupled with the random phase approximation (RPA). The RPA (or time-dependent Hartree-Fock theory) provides the transition density between the initial and inelastically excited states. Possible generalizations of the procedures are discussed.
