Abstract

In the one-photon-exchange approximation for elastic electron-deuteron scattering, with space-reflection and time-reversal invariance, three form factors are needed to specify the deuteron current. In this paper the longitudinal polarization of the outgoing electron is calculated in terms of these form factors for arbitrary polarization of the incident electron and arbitrary density matrix for the initial deuteron spin state.
