The Eigenvalue Problem for Two-Level Systems

  • E. J. Robinson
Conference paper

Abstract

The study of two-level atoms coupled by external fields is more than 50 years old, but continues to be of interest. 1–10 Our purpose here is to deepen the A2 eigenvalue method, an approach to this problem introduced recently.9
