This paper presents a theoretical study of e^−-CO scattering at collision energies from 1 to 7 eV in the static-exchange approximation. The T-matrix discrete-basis-set approach to electron-molecule scattering introduced by Rescigno, McCurdy, and McKoy is used together with the variational correction method of Fliflet and McKoy. The authors show the behavior of the ^2Σ and ^2Π channel eigenphases and extract the width and position of the ^2Π shape resonance. Comparison is made with other theoretical and semiempirical results and with the corresponding resonance parameters for e^−-N_2 scattering. The momentum-transfer cross section is calculated and compared with the experimental data of Land and with other theoretical results.
