Methods are described for the nonperturbative calculation of wave functions and scattering amplitudes in light-cone quantization. Form factors are computed from the boost-invariant wave functions, which appear as coefficients in a Fock-state expansion of the field-theoretic eigenstate. A technique is proposed for calculating scattering amplitudes from matrix elements of a T operator between such composite-particle eigenstates.
