Abstract The Low equation for a non-relativistic scattering process was investigated, using a model in which the scattering source can exist in more than one state, and the average interaction between the source and the particle is factorable. The branching ratio theorem and the optical theorem are derived directly from the Low equation. The Low equation was solved by the method of Castellejo, Dalitz, and Dyson, and the unique solution was determined by investigating the spectrum of the unperturbed Hamiltonian. The resonance phenomena was studied and the Breit-Wigner resonance formula was derived utilizing the properties of the generalized R-function. The more general applicability of the method is indicated. (auth)
