    Imaging of the amplitude and phase of time-evolving wave functions and excited-state potentials, using fluorescence data, is performed. The method relies on the use of both frequency-resolved and time-resolved fluorescence to reduce the problem of wave function imaging to a solvable set of...

    Contrary to the previous belief, it is found that the time dependent Schrödinger equation is not always reduced to the Hamilton–Jacobi equation in the h→0 limit. An explicit example is given.

    Hierarchies of nonlinear Schrödinger equations were investigated for multiparticle systems, satisfying the separation property, i.e., where product wave functions evolve by the separate evolution of each factor. Such a hierarchy defines a nonlinear derivation on tensor products of the...

    The cohesive energetics of the sixfold and eightfold coordinated phases of solid cubic cesium chloride are studied using a nonempirical fully ionic description. The Oxford Dirac-Fock program is used to compute the ion wave functions and rearrangement energies needed to convert a free anion into...

  • Structure of the exact wave function. Nakatsuji, Hiroshi; Bongsoo Kim // Journal of Chemical Physics;8/22/2000, Vol. 113 Issue 8 

    We investigate the structure of the exact wave function as a solution of the Schro¨dinger equation, aiming the singles and doubles description of the exact wave function. The basis is that the Hamiltonian involves only one and two body operators. We first present two theorems that indicate a...

    Exact solutions are found for the Dirac equation for a combination of Lorentz scalar and vector Coulombic potentials with additional non-Coulombic parts. An appropriate linear combination of Lorentz scalar and vector non-Coulombic potentials, with the scalar part dominating, can be chosen to...

    Apparently, the energy levels merge and disappear in many PT symmetric models. This interpretation is incorrect: In square-well model we demonstrate how the doublets of states in question continue to exist at complex conjugate energies in the strongly nonHermitian regime.
