The study of collisions between electrons and molecules is an old field, almost as old as the discovery of the electron itself. Yet it has never been a large field; indeed, if we confine our interest (as we do here) to low-energy collisions, only a handful of research groups, experimental or theoretical, are active throughout the world today. It might therefore be appropriate to begin with two questions: Why study such collisions at all? And why is so little research being done?
