Abstract

It is known that the quantum states of the nucleus determine the energy levels at which resonances occur. This thesis describes the collision matrix and Wigner's R-matrix and derives the Breit-Wigner single level resonance formula in order to give the quantum mechanics background to resonance phenomena. A review of the early statistical descriptions of resonances is also given.
