Total cross sections for electron capture are calculated for collisions of fast protons and a-particles with atomic hydrogen. The distorted-wave impulse approximation is applied over the energy range 10-1500 keV/u. State-selective results are given for the 1s, 2s and 2p levels. Both the post and prior forms of the model are calculated and compared with results from other theories and experimental measurements. In general the model performs very well in comparison with experiment over this energy range though discrepancies arise at lower energies.
