Title: Generalized fractional Schroedinger equation with space-time fractional derivatives

Abstract

In this paper the generalized fractional Schroedinger equation with space and time fractional derivatives is constructed. The equation is solved for free particle and for a square potential well by the method of integral transforms, Fourier transform and Laplace transform, and the solution can be expressed in terms of Mittag-Leffler function. The Green function for free particle is also presented in this paper. Finally, we discuss the relationship between the cases of the generalized fractional Schroedinger equation and the ones in standard quantum.

  • We argue that the continuous-time random walk approach may be a useful guide to extend the Schroedinger equation in order to incorporate nonlocal effects, avoiding the inconsistencies raised by Jeng et al. [J. Math. Phys. 51, 062102 (2010)]. As an application, we work out a free particle in a half space, obtaining the time dependent solution by considering an arbitrary initial condition.
  • By using a recently proposed numerical method, the fractional diffusion equation with memory in a finite domain is solved for different asymmetry parameters and fractional orders. Some scaling laws are revisited in this condition, such as growth rate in a distance from pulse perturbation, the time when the perturbative peak reaches the other points, and advectionlike behavior as a result of asymmetry and memory. Conditions for negativity and instability of solutions are shown. Also up-hill transport and its time-space region are studied.
  • We have developed a procedure for solving the three-dimensional, time-dependent Schroedinger equation by expanding the total system wave function in a Volkov basis and by propagating the resulting first-order differential equations in time. We discuss applications to several model systems representing an atom in an intense, oscillating electric field.
  • The wave function for the collision of a proton with a hydrogen atom is obtained by direct solution of the time-dependent Schroedinger equation in a model two-dimensional Cartesian space using lattice techniques. The dimensional reduction from the full three-dimensional (3D) space allows the consideration of huge collision ``volumes`` with minimal computational expense, while still preserving the idea of an impact parameter. The probabilities for charge exchange and ionization are estimated for different projectile energies ranging from 10 to 100 keV/amu. Comparisons with full 3D calculations in smaller collision volumes show that the time-dependent behavior of the probability densities is quitemore » similar for the 2D soft-core model interaction chosen here. The ionization dynamics are further analyzed in regard to the fate of that fraction of the probability density located near the saddle point between projectile and target potentials.« less
  • The authors study the scattering problem associated with the behavior of whispering gallery waves near the inflection point of the boundary. In order to solve the scattering problem, they prove the theorems of existence, uniqueness and smoothness of the solution. The formal asymptotic behavior is justified for t ..-->.. - infinity and superexponential smallness of the wave field in the shadow zone is proved.
