The description of (e,3e) reaction with a helium atom on the basis of the solution of the Phadeev-Merkuriev equation in J-matrix approach

The version of the J-matrix method is developed to solve the three-body differential Faddeev-Merkuriev equations. To check the efficiency of our method the calculations of fivefold differential cross section for electron-impact double ionization of helium are performed. The results are in good agreement with the experiment both in shape and in absolute values.
