that takes advantages of the analytic solutions for the long-range potential,
and both the energy and the angular-momentum insensitivities of the short-range
parameters. The theory provides an accurate and complete account of scattering
processes, including shape and Feshbach resonances, in terms of a few
parameters such as the singlet and the triplet scattering lengths. As an
example, results for $^{23}$Na-$^{23}$Na scattering are presented and compared
close-coupling calculations.
