Title: Stability estimate for the aligned magnetic field in a periodic quantum waveguide from Dirichlet-to-Neumann map

Abstract

In this article, we study the boundary inverse problem of determining the aligned magnetic field appearing in the magnetic Schrödinger equation in a periodic quantum cylindrical waveguide, by knowledge of the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map. We prove a Hölder stability estimate with respect to the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map, by means of the geometrical optics solutions of the magnetic Schrödinger equation.

  • An explicit expression for the Fredholm determinant D(E) appearing in the boundary element method for two-dimensional quantum billiards is derived in terms of the interior Dirichlet eigenenergies and exterior Neumann scattering phase shifts. Not only in the semiclassical regime but also in all order of {h_bar}, D(E) admits the factorization into the interior and exterior contributions, where the former has zeros at interior Dirichlet eigenenergies and the latter at resonances of the Neumann scattering. A new aspect of the Kac{close_quote}s inverse problem is also discussed. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • We consider a real massless scalar field in a two-dimensional spacetime, satisfying Dirichlet or Neumann boundary condition at the instantaneous position of a moving boundary. For a relativistic law of motion, we show that Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions yield the same radiation force on a moving mirror when the initial field state is invariant under time translations. We obtain the exact formulas for the energy density of the field and the radiation force on the boundary for vacuum, thermal, coherent, and squeezed states. In the nonrelativistic limit, our results coincide with those found in the literature.
  • We consider a real massless scalar field inside a cavity with a moving mirror in a two-dimensional spacetime, satisfying the Dirichlet or Neumann boundary condition at the instantaneous position of the boundaries, for an arbitrary and relativistic law of motion. Considering an arbitrary initial field state, we show that the exact value of the energy density in the cavity can be obtained by tracing back a sequence of null lines, connecting the value of the energy density at the given spacetime point to a certain known value of the energy density at a point in the region where the initialmore » field modes are not affected by the boundary motion. We obtain the particular formulas for the energy density of the field and the quantum force acting on the boundaries for a vacuum, thermal, and a coherent state. We thus generalize a previous result in literature, where this problem is approached for only one mirror. For the particular cases of vacuum and Dirichlet boundary condition, nonrelativistic velocities, or in the limit of large length of the cavity, our results coincide with those found in the literature.« less
  • The embedding method [J. E. Inglesfield, J. Phys. C 14, 3795 (1981)] for computing bound states of the Schroedinger equation is reformulated in terms of the Dirichlet-to-Neumann (DtN) and Neumann-to-Dirichlet (NtD) surface integral operators. Variational principles for energy, allowing the use of trial functions which are discontinuous in values or derivatives, are employed. A method of constructing kernels of the DtN and NtD operators from solutions to an auxiliary Steklov (Stekloff) eigenproblem is presented. Numerical results illustrating the usefulness of the DtN and NtD embedding methods are provided. After necessary modifications, the DtN-NtD formalism presented in this work may constitutemore » the convenient framework for generalizing the embedding method to bound states of the Dirac equation.« less
