Screening of particle exchange in quantum Boltzmann liquids
Abstract
We employ correlated densitymatrix theory of strongly correlated Bose fluids to analyze the structural properties of quantum Boltzmann liquids. The constituents of such a normal quantum system are distinguishable as in a classical fluid since the interparticle forces prevent any exchange of identical bosons at short relative distances. Our study focuses on this particlescreening effect and on its consequences for the properties of various correlation functions, structure functions, momentum distributions, and quasiparticle and collective excitations. The formalism of the adopted microscopic theory is applied to a detailed numerical investigation of particlescreening properties and the quantum behavior of liquid parahydrogen close to the triple point temperature. The theoretical results are compared with numerical data of pathintegral Monte Carlo simulations and with available experimental results of recent crosssection measurements by neutron scattering.

The influence of the electronexchange and quantum screening on the Thomson scattering process is investigated in degenerate quantum Fermi plasmas. The Thomson scattering cross section in quantum plasmas is obtained by the plasma dielectric function and fluctuationdissipation theorem as a function of the electronexchange parameter, Fermi energy, plasmon energy, and wave number. It is shown that the electronexchange effect enhances the Thomson scattering cross section in quantum plasmas. It is also shown that the differential Thomson scattering cross section has a minimum at the scattering angle Θ=π/2. It is also found that the Thomson scattering cross section increases with anmore »

Particle production and Boltzmann integral form of relativistic quantum transport theory
The 3+3+1 dimensional relativistic quantum transport equation for the fermion matter field, combines the particle pair production with flow phenomena, which occur at very different time scale. A direct numerical treatment of dynamical situations is therefore practically impossible. The authors attempt a seperation of these two sectors by the method of prediagonalization of the integral equations. They exploit the structure of the resolvent of the transport equations: it contains two poles corresponding to the flow sector and two to the pair production sector. Their hope for practical applications is to treat matter flow as a classical phenomenon and to bemore » 
Particle abundance in a thermal plasma: Quantum kinetics versus Boltzmann equation
We study the abundance of a particle species in a thermalized plasma by introducing a quantum kinetic description based on the nonequilibrium effective action. A stochastic interpretation of quantum kinetics in terms of a Langevin equation emerges naturally. We consider a particle species that is stable in the vacuum and interacts with heavier particles that constitute a thermal bath in equilibrium. Asymptotic theory suggests a definition of a fully renormalized single particle distribution function. Its real time dynamics is completely determined by the nonequilibrium effective action which furnishes a Dysonlike resummation of the perturbative expansion. The distribution function reaches thermalmore »
