  • The renormalization of the chiral np interaction in the {sup 1}S{sub 0} channel to next-to-next-to-next-to-leading order (N3LO) in Weinberg counting for the long-distance potential with one single momentum- and energy-independent counterterm is carried out. This renormalization scheme yields finite and unique results and is free of short-distance off-shell ambiguities. We observe good convergence in the entire elastic range below pion production threshold and find that there are some small physical effects missing in the purely pionic chiral NN potential with or without inclusion of explicit {delta} degrees of freedom. We also study the renormalizability of the standard Weinberg counting atmore » next-to-leading order (NLO) and next-to-next-to-leading order (N2LO) when a momentum-dependent polynomial counterterm is included. Our numerical results suggest that the inclusion of this counterterm does not yield a convergent amplitude (at NLO and N2LO)« less
  • A method for solving the TDHF-equation for the one-particle density matrix is suggested. The density matrix is expanded into Gaussian phase-space densities after a transformation to Wigner space. If the Hartree potential is approximated by a quadratic potential at the centers of the Gaussian density matrices, classical equations of motion are obtained for the phase-space coordinates of the centers. In addition, differential equations of first order have to be solved for the time-dependent expansion coefficients. The authors give explicit formulae of the method for the case of two colliding atoms (or ions).
  • Using a coherent state phase space representation the distribution function corresponding to many-particle harmonic oscillator wave functions is obtained in explicit analytic form. A density matrix expansion is performed and found to produce good approximations to the exact results.
  • By completing the old discussion of Wilson, we express the chiral anomaly in terms of a double integral of a three-point function of chiral currents over an arbitrarily small region in coordinate space. An integrability condition provides an important finite local counterterm to the integral. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • Electron density and electron momentum density, while independently tractable experimentally, bear no direct connection without going through the many-electron wave function. However, invoking a variant of the constrained-search formulation of density-functional theory, we develop a general scheme (valid for arbitrary external potentials) yielding decent momentum-space properties, starting exclusively from the coordinate-space electron density. A numerical illustration of the scheme is provided for the closed-shell atomic systems He, Be, and Ne in their ground state and for 1s{sup 1} 2s{sup 1} singlet electronic excited state for helium by calculating the Compton profiles and the <p{sup n}> expectation values derived from givenmore » coordinate-space electron densities.« less
