    We discuss empirical results for the eikonal function in the momentum transfer space, obtained with three model-independent parametrizations for the scattering amplitude and fits to proton-proton differential cross section data, from 19.4 to 62.5 GeV. For each parametrization, the data...

    An amplitude method is described for determining the partial and total widths and the energies of resonances in multichannel processes in which resonance states may decay into many channels. The method is tested by application to a model problem and by a study of the predissociation of the C...

    We adapt the off-shell πN amplitude of the Tucson-Melbourne three-body force to the half-off-shell amplitude of the pion rescattering contribution to pp→ppπ[sup 0] near threshold. This pion rescattering contribution, together with the impulse term, provides a good description of...

    In this paper we present two new formulations for the time-independent quantum mechanical calculation of photodissociation amplitudes. The first is based on a variational L2 amplitude density approach, and the second is based on a new scattered wave variational principle, both approaches having...

    The asymptotic form of the amplitude for the N-rung ladder diagram in φ3 theory is calculated in the limit s>|t|>m2. The result is proportional to s-1|t|-N+1 times a homogeneous polynomial of degree 2N-2 in ln s and ln|t|. It is not an analytic function of s and t, although the first N+1...

    A new class of ULF waves were discovered in the foreshock from the ISEE magnetometer data by Le et al. [1]. These unusual type of waves differ greatly from the more commonly observed 30 s waves, shocklets and SLAMS. The new waves have periods near 3 s and always show a very narrow spectrum that...
