（1） What is a resonance？

The discrete energy state created in the continuum energy region by the interaction, which has an outgoing boundary condition.

However, there are severaldefinitions of resonances

(i) Resonance cross section

１

s(E) ～ —————

Breit-Wigner formula

(E – Er)2 + Γ2/4

(ii) Phase shift

“Quantum Mechanics” by L.I. Schiff

… If any one of klis such that the denominator ( f(kl) ) of the expression for tanl,

|tanl| = | g(kl)/f(kl) | ∞ ,

( Sl(k) = e2il(k) ),

is very small, the l-th partial wave is said to be in resonance with the scattering potential.

Then, the resonance: l(k) = π/2 + n π

- Phase shift of 16O + α OCM

(iii) Decaying state

“Theoretical Nuclear Physics”by J.M. Blatt and V.F. Weisskopf

We obtain a quasi-stational state if we postulate that for r>Rc the solution consists of outgoing waves only. This is equivalent to the condition B=0 in

ψ (r) = A eikr + B e-ikr(for r >Rc).

This restriction again singles out certain define solutions which describe the “decaying states” and their eigenvalues.

- Resonance wave function

For the resonance momentum kr=κ–iγ,

ψ(r) = ei κr erγ, (not normalizable (γ>0)）

G. Gamow, Constitution of atomic nuclei and dioactivity (Oxford U.P., 1931)

A.F.J. Siegert, Phys. Rev. 56 (1939), 750.

The physical meaning of a complex energy

E=Er– iΓ/2

can be understood from the time depen-dence of the wave function

ψ(t) = ψ(t=0) exp(－iEt/ｈ)

and its probability density

| ψ(t)|2 = |ψ(t=0)|2 exp(－Γt/２ｈ).

The lifetime of the resonant state is given by τ = ｈ/Γ．

4. Poles of S-matrix

The solution φl(r) of the Schrödinger equation;

Satisfying the boundary conditions

,

the solution φl(r) is written as

where Jost solutions f±(k, r) is difined as

and Jost functions f±(k)

Then the S-matrix is expressed as

The important properties of the Jost functions:

2.

From these properties, we have unitarity of the S-matrix;

The pole distribution of the S-matrix in the momentum plane

The Riemann surface for the complex energy:

E=k2/2

Complex Scaling Method

physical picture of the complex scaling method

Resonance state

The resonance wave function behaves asymptotically as

When the resonance energy is expressed as

the corresponding momentum is

and the asymptotic resonance wave function

Diverge!

This asymptoticdivergence of the resonance wave function causes difficulties in the resonance calculations.

In the method of complex scaling, a radialcoordinate r is transformed as

Then the asymptotic form of the resonance wave function becomes

Converge!

It is now apparent that when π/2>(θ-θr)>0 the wave function converges asymptotically. This result leads to the conclusion that the resonance parameters (Er, Γ) can be obtained as an eigenvalue of a bound-state type wave function.

This is an important reason why we use the complex scaling method.
