The relatively new Basis Generator Method is a useful tool for determining a highly precise numerical approximation to the solution of the time dependent Schrodinger equation. Indeed in the field of atomic collisions it can more efficiently describe the time evolution of the system, than say large grids or static basis sets. Coupled with density functional theory, it opens up the possibility of treating complex systems. With recent developments in experiment, such as COLTRIMS, interest in differential cross sections has grown. It is therefore of importance to see how a powerful technique, such as the basis generator method, can describe such differential measurements. With this in mind, a novel method of determining doubly differential cross section has been envisaged. In this thesis the method, its implementation, and comparison to experimental results are described. Mostly this thesis deals with proton impact ionisation. However, in the penultimate chapter, the extension of the theory, to multi-electron target systems is described.
