The extension of classical S-matrix theory to chaotic scattering systems is considered. It is shown that if the fractal structure of the chattering region is understood then the contribution to the S-matrix elements and the transition probabilities can be expressed as a sum over the infinite number of contributing trajectories and that by using the scaling laws of the fractal that this sum can be evaluated. It is shown that if the transition is classically forbidden then the contribution from the chattering region is significant. © 1994 American Institute of Physics.

    We apply Poynting's theorem to the dielectric-conductor interface to determine the intensity of the absorbing mode (parasitic channel), when plane waves incide with an angle of incidence. By applying boundary conditions we are able to describes the scattering at the interface by means of a...

    There are many systems that present losses or gains, like optic cavities and random lasers. In this work we study a system that consists on an impenetrable barrier and an imaginary delta potential to simulate a cavity in one dimension.

    We demonstrate the existence of absorbing 'parasitic channels' by experimental measurement of the reflection coefficient R of a frustrated waveguide, at several microwave frequencies.

    J/Ψ photo- and electroproduction is studied in the framework of the analytic S-matrix theory. It is argued that at low energies the background, which is the low-energy equivalent of the high-energy diffraction, replaces the Pomeron exchange.

    We argue that due to isospin and U-spin invariance of strong low-energy interactions the S-wave scattering lengths a00 and a10 of ¯ N scattering with isospin I = 0 and I = 1 satisfy the low-energy theorem a00 +3 a10 = 0 valid to leading order in chiral expansion. In the model of strong...
