Abstract

A canonical transformation is described for uniformizing the coordinates used in Paper I of this series. For comparison with the results of Paper III, which based a uniformization on exact trajectories, the present article describes one based on elastic collision trajectories. The question of invariance of S-matrix elements with respect to semiclassical unitary transformations is also discussed.
