On the Quasi-Stationary Approach to Scattering for Perturbations Periodic in Time

  • Dimitri R. Yafaev
Part of the Mathematical Physics Studies book series (MPST, volume 12)


Scattering of a plane wave by a time-periodic potential is described by a system of coupled stationary Schrödinger equations. Each equation corresponds to a channel when energy is changed by some integer number. The interaction of a plane wave with a quasi-bound state of a time-periodic potential well is investigated. It is shown that for resonant energies this interaction does not vanish as a coupling constant of a perturbation tends to zero.
