The statistical multistep theory of Feshbach, Kerman and Koonin has established itself in describing proton-induced preequilibrium reactions over a wide angular range up to an incident energy of 200 MeV. Extensions to the theory made it possible to also predict both the continuum cross sections and analysing powers of the (p,p′), (p,α) and (p,3He) reactions at incident energies below 100 MeV. These reactions were recently also measured at incident energies above 100 MeV, thus providing further testing grounds of the inferred multistep reaction mechanism.
