Title: Perturbation theory for short-range weakly-attractive potentials in one dimension

Abstract

We have obtained the perturbative expressions up to sixth order for the energy of the bound state in a one dimensional, arbitrarily weak, short range finite well, applying a method originally developed by Gat and Rosenstein Ref. [1]. The expressions up to fifth order reproduce the results already known in the literature, while the sixth order had not been calculated before. As an illustration of our formulas we have applied them to two exactly solvable problems and to a nontrivial problem.

  • We consider the three-boson problem with {delta}-function interactions in one spatial dimension. Three different approaches are used to calculate the phase shifts, which we interpret in the context of the effective range expansion, for the scattering of one free particle off a bound pair. We first follow a procedure outlined by McGuire in order to obtain an analytic expression for the desired S-matrix element. This result is then compared to a variational calculation in the adiabatic hyperspherical representation, and to a numerical solution to the momentum-space Faddeev equations. We find excellent agreement with the exact phase shifts, and comment onmore » some of the important features in the scattering and bound-state sectors. In particular, we find that the 1+2 scattering length is divergent, marking the presence of a zero-energy resonance which appears as a feature when the pairwise interactions are short range. Finally, we consider the introduction of a three-body interaction, and comment on the cutoff dependence of the coupling.« less
  • Perturbation theory, when applied to charged-particle transport, generates a series solution that requires a double quadrature per term. The continuity of higher-order terms leads to numerical evaluation of the series. The high rate of convergence of the series makes the method a practical tool for charged-particle transport problems. The coupling of the neutron component in the case of proton transport in tissue does not greatly alter the rate of convergence. The method holds promise for a practical high-energy proton transport theory. (auth)
  • The low-temperature thermodynamics of the one-dimensional Hubbard model with attractive on-site interaction of the electrons is discussed within the framework of the Bethe ansatz for the wave function. At low {ital T} the dominant states consist of spin-paired electrons (Cooper-pair-like) and excitations of such pairs (without breaking up the singlet bound states). A critical field {ital H}{sub {ital c}} (energy required to depair a Cooper pair) is obtained at {ital T}=0 (note that the superconducting {ital T}{sub {ital c}} =0), which disappears for {ital T}{ne}0. There is no magnetic response at {ital T}=0 for {ital H}{lt}{ital H}{sub {ital c}} .more » The one-electron correlation function falls off exponentially with distance, while the singlet pair--singlet pair correlation decreases with a power law. The specific heat is linear in temperature, which is possibly a consequence of the dimension. The elementary excitations of the system are discussed. The excitation spectrum shows some analogies to that of resonant valence bonds in two dimensions.« less
  • We present the exact solution via Bethe`s ansatz to an integrable model consisting of two parabolic bands of electrons of equal mass with a local {delta}-function exchange interaction. The interaction is attractive or repulsive depending on whether the interacting particles are in a spin-singlet or spin-triplet state. The structure of the Bethe ansatz and the classification of states is similar to the one of the two-channel Kondo problem. The interest in two-band models arises from the possibility that both the 3{ital d}{sub {ital x}}{sup 2}{minus}{ital y}{sup 2} and 3{ital d}{sub {ital z}}{sup 2} orbitals may play a role in high-{italmore » T}{sub {ital c}} cuprates. Some low-temperature properties of this model are discussed as a function of the interaction strength, a magnetic field, and the (crystalline field) splitting between the bands. The attractive interaction leads to Cooper-pair-like bound states, which exist at every temperature. There is no long-range order and no condensation of the Cooper pairs. A threshold magnetic field is required to overcome the binding energy of the Cooper pairs and there is no response to fields smaller than the critical one. The low-temperature specific heat is proportional to {ital T}, except at critical points (van Hove singularities of the bands) where {ital C}{proportional_to}{ital T}{sup 1/2}. The spectrum of elemental excitations is approximately parabolic.« less
