Title: Aharonov-Bohm scattering of a localized wave packet: Analysis of the forward direction

Abstract

The Aharonov-Bohm scattering of a localized wave packet is considered. A careful analysis of the forward direction points out new results: according to the time-dependent solution obtained by means of the asymptotic representation for the propagator (kernel), a phenomenon of autointerference occurs along the forward direction, where, also, the probability density current is evaluated and found finite.
