Title: On a Class of Hairy Square Barriers and Gamow Vectors

Abstract

The second order Darboux-Gamow transformation is applied to deform square one dimensional barriers in non-relativistic quantum mechanics. The initial and the new 'hairy' potentials have the same transmission probabilities (for the appropriate parameters). In general, new Gamow vectors are constructed as Darboux deformations of the initial ones.

  • In analogy to Gamow vectors that are obtained from first-order resonance poles of the S-matrix, one can also define higher-order Gamow vectors which are derived from higher-order poles of the S-matrix. An S-matrix pole of r-th order at z{sub R}=E{sub R}{minus}i{Gamma}/2 leads to r generalized eigenvectors of order k=0,1,{hor_ellipsis},r{minus}1, which are also Jordan vectors of degree (k+1) with generalized eigenvalue (E{sub R}{minus}i{Gamma}/2). The Gamow-Jordan vectors are elements of a generalized complex eigenvector expansion, whose form suggests the definition of a state operator (density matrix) for the microphysical decaying state of this higher-order pole. This microphysical state is a mixture ofmore » non-reducible components. In spite of the fact that the k-th order Gamow-Jordan vectors has the polynomial time-dependence which one always associates with higher-order poles, the microphysical state obeys a purely exponential decay law. {copyright} {ital 1997 American Institute of Physics.}« less
  • A previously proposed approximate method for computing Gamow vectors and momenta is applied to construct a separable representation of a local realistic nucleon-nucleon interaction. It is shown that, in spite of the differences between the exact and approximate vectors and momenta, the resulting separable form gives close agreement with the original local potential for phases and the half-off-shell t matrix.
  • I present a class of vacuum metrics with a pair of commuting Killing vectors which do not possess the property of orthogonal transitivity. The solution is Petrov type II with expansion-, twist-, and shear-free geodesic rays and includes the van Stockum exterior metric as a limiting case.
