Monchick, L., and S. Green, 1977: Validity of approximate methods in molecular scattering. III. Effective potential and coupled states approximations for differential and gas kinetic cross sections. J. Chem. Phys., 66, 3085-3093, doi:10.1063/1.434325.

Two dimensionality-reducing approximations, the jz-conserving coupled states (sometimes called the centrifugal decoupling) method and the effective potential method, were applied to collision calculations of He with CO and with HCl. The coupled states method was found to be sensitive to the interpretation of the centrifugal angular momentum quantum number in the body-fixed frame, but that choice leading to the original McGuire-Kouri expression for the scattering amplitude — and to the simplest formulas — proved to be quite successful in reproducing differential and gas kinetic cross sections. The computationally cheaper effective potential method was much less accurate.
