This corresponds exactly to the interference of probabilities discussed in Section IV. The process is not o f the simple Chapman-Smoluchowski-Kolmogoroff type (Eq. (1 1)); the operator (p4 now corresponds to an '' excess" transition probability. As the result, the second of the two sequences discussed above may decrease the effect of the first one. It is very interesting that even in the limit of classical mechanics (which may be performed easily in the case of anharmonic oscillators) this interference of probabilities persists.

After this brief survey of the general theory let us discuss in a little more detail the Boltzmann approximation (Eq. (39)) and the equation (Eq. (40)) retaining higher order effects. VII. BOLTZMANN APPROXIMATION To make the discussion easier let us write explicitly the kinetic equation, Eq. (39), for the interaction between radiation and matter [see Eq. (28)]. " We recognize on the right-hand side the familiar gain and loss terms. The transition probabilities which appear in the Pauli equation correspond to the Born approximation for one-photon processes.

In the classical case of impacting Iplolecules, it turns out to be half the usual relaxation time, regarded a6 the mean time between collisions. This could be obtained directly by replacing I(SoS,) by its time average over the interval (0 5 t 5 TI, obtaining the alternative to Eq. (2). which will be used, to show the process, in Section VI. It cannot be too strongly emphasized that from the point of view of the deductive logical structure of the present theory, the definition of welaxed motion is the basic starting point: all the preceding qualitative discussion has been for motivation, and could in pure logic have been omitted.
