Envelope task #966: === Theory & Manual ===
Derive scalar and polarized wave equation for both X-rays and neutrons, and choose appropriate notation.
|Status:||Resolved||Start date:||04 Sep 2013|
Right now, our User Manual is neutron centric. BornAgain claims to support GISAXS and GISANS equally well!

- Priority changed from Normal to High
Derive the wave equation with and without polarization for neutrons and for electromagnetic waves, and choose a common notation for both kinds of radiation. Search the literature for best practice examples, and provide references in the text.
This will lay the foundations for implementing the polarization factors for X-rays, #31.
- Status changed from In Progress to Resolved
Reference paper makes the formalism as compact as possible. For more detailed investigations, it turns out that it is better to treat polarized neutrons and X-rays separately. Documents continue to evolve in our ba-intern/theory folder.
