A new method of implementing scattering calculations is presented. For the S-matrix computation it produces a complete set of solutions of the wave equation that need be valid only inside the interaction region. For problems with small sizes the method is one of several that are practical in the sense that it involves merely a real symmetric Hamiltonian represented in a minimal L2 basis set. For more challenging larger systems it lends itself to a very efficient time independent iterative procedure that obtains results simultaneously at all energies. A modified Chebyshev polynomial expansion of (E-H)-1 is used. This acts on a set of energy independent wave packets located on the edge of the interaction region. The procedure requires minimal storage and is shown to converge rapidly in a manner that is uniform in energy. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.

    Effects of vibronic coherence transfer induced by the heat bath on ultrafast time-resolved resonant light scattering (RLS) spectra are theoretically investigated within the master equation approach. The vibronic coherence initially created by a coherent optical excitation transfers to other...

The dynamics of the suspension is assumed to be governed by the generalized Smoluchowski equation. The Laplace transform of the scattering...

    A new formalism is developed for computing the time-of-flight spectrum of a particle scattering from a collinear harmonic lattice prepared at finite temperature. We use a time-domain transcription to construct an S-matrix formalism that can be easily implemented via Gaussian wave packet...

    Abstract. Polycrystalline samples of M@C[sub 82] metallofullerenes have been studied at room temperature by Raman (for M = La, Y, Ce, Gd), far-infrared (FIR) (for M = La, Y, Ce), and inelastic neutron scattering (INS) (for M = La, Y) spectroscopy. Raman and FIR spectra suggest that these...
