Description: This report is an almost verbatim copy of lectures on Electron Scattering given at Argonne National Laboratory in the Fall of 1982 by John Dirk Walecka. Professor Walecka was an Argonne Fellow in the Physics Division from October 1982 to January 1983. The original intent was to type the lecture notes. However, to finish the report in a reasonable time it was necessary to transcribe most of the equations by hand which led to certain notational difficulties. With a single exception in lecture no. 20, pp. 340-359, the notation has been made self-consistent by writing all script and other symbols by hand that are not easily reproduced by a word processor. Certain conventions should be noted. The superscript "ALT 216 symbol" is used to signal a footnote. However, the footnote is usually not to be found on the same page; in fact it may occur only after several intervening pages of text. Instructions are provided for interpreting the symbols representing the products of two vectors, as well as a note that important results are included in a box, with their relative importance being indicated by the number of asterisks associated with the box.
