In a previous paper, a variational principle was introduced for 1 - p, the capture probability for neutrons slowing down in a homogeneous medium of infinite extent. In the present paper, the variational principle is used together with simple but accurate trial functions to obtain expressions for (i) corrections to the commonly used 'narrow resonance' formula for capture and (ii) interference effects in the capture of neutrons by closely spaced resonances.
