Title: Analyses of Third Order Bose-Einstein Correlation by Means of Coulomb Wave Function

Abstract

In order to include a correction by the Coulomb interaction in Bose-Einstein correlation (BEC), the wave function for the Coulomb scattering were introduced in the quantum optical approach to BEC in the previous work. If we formulate the amplitude written by Coulomb wave functions according to the diagram for BEC in the plane wave formulation, the formula for 3{pi} -BEC becomes simpler than that of our previous work. We re-analyze the raw data of 3{pi} -BEC by NA44 and STAR Collaborations by this formula. Results are compared with the previous ones.

  • An expression for the third-order Coulomb wave function, correct to order ( alpha Z)/sup 3/ for all momenta and energies, is derived. Using this wave function the total cross section for single-photon emission resulting from a positron annihilating with a K-shell electron (single quantum annihilation), valid to relative order ( alpha Z)/sup 2/, is calculated numerically. The results for lead are compared to the exact answer of Jaeger and Hulme, and the results for silver are also given graphically. The effect of the third-order term in the cross section is found to be significant, especially for low and intermediate positronmore » energies. The cross section for lead is found to be qualitatively correct while that for silver is essentially exact. The question of how to treat the normalization factors of the various wave functions is also discussed. (auth)« less
  • A new microscopic theory of high-Tc superconductivity is presented, starting with a generalization of the BCS Hamiltonian and taking into account the energy band structures. It is argued that the electric conduction for a layered conductor generally must be 2D and the Fermi surface a right cylinder with its axis along the c-axis. A basic BCS-like Hamiltonian is proposed and the ground-state energy and wave function are obtained using a free-energy minimum calculations. Above the Tc, nonzero momentum or excited Cooper pairs are shown to move like free bosons. It is demonstrated that excited Cooper pairs moving in 2D withmore » the linear energy-momentum relation must undergo a Bose-Einstein condensation at a Tc given by a certain formula. This phase transition is of the third order, characterized by a reversed lambda-shaped heat capacity at Tc. Below Tc where the supercondensate is present, the excited Cooper pairs are shown to move like free bosons but with a temperature-dependent energy-momentum relation. 57 refs.« less
  • For particles emerging from a second order QCD phase transition, we show that a recently introduced shape parameter of the Bose-Einstein correlation function, the Levy index of stability equals to the correlation exponent -- one of the critical exponents that characterize the behaviour of the matter in the vicinity of the second order phase transition point. Hence the shape of the Bose-Einstein / HBT correlation functions, when measured as a function of bombarding energy and centrality in various heavy ion reactions, can be utilized to locate experimentally the second order phase transition and the critical end point of the firstmore » order phase transition line in QCD.« less
  • Two basic correlation functions are calculated for a model of N harmonically interacting identical particles in a parabolic potential well. The density and the pair correlation function of the model are investigated for the boson case. The dependence of these static response properties on the complete range of the temperature and of the number of particles is obtained. The calculation technique is based on the path integral approach of symmetrized density matrices for identical particles in a parabolic confining well. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • The pair-correlation function is one of the basic quantities to characterize the coherence properties of a Bose-Einstein condensate. We calculate this function in the experimentally important case of a zero temperature Bose-Einstein condensate in a metastable triplet helium state using the variational method with a pair-excitation ansatz. We compare our result with a pair-correlation function obtained for the hard-sphere potential with the same scattering length. Both functions are practically indistinguishable for distances greater than the scattering length. At smaller distances, due to interatomic interactions, the helium condensate shows strong correlations.
