    The scattering of positrons from molecules and atoms using a magnetized beams was studied. The techniques for measuring the grand total, elastic differential, total inelastic and total positronium formation cross sections were described. The buffer-gas trapping and magnetized beam formation techniques were used for the creation of high-resolution positron beams.
