Abstract Some apparent discrepancies in the definition or calculation of the Coulomb T matrix are investigated in an approach that uses shielded wave functions. It is found that the screened Coulomb T matrix behaves anomalously in the neighborhood of the energy shell and is in fact discontinuous in the limit of zero screening. A closed-form expression for the T matrix, which has been derived previously, is shown to be essentially correct off the energy shell. (auth)
