    • Abstract

       

      By exploiting the theory of ordinary differential equations together with certain properties of higher transcendental functions, a useful analytical expression for the integral transform of the Green's function for motion in Coulomb–Yamaguchi potential is derived via the r-space approach. This integral transform is applied to construct an analytical expression for off-shell Jost solution in its ‘maximal reduced form’ involving confluent and Gaussian hypergeometric functions. Corresponding Jost functions auto-matically follow from this solution. Finally, as another application of the off-shell Jost solution, the off-shell T-matrix is calculated by using a modified relation between offshell physical wave function and T-matrix which does not involve the potential explicitly, thereby avoiding certain difficult integrals, and expressed it in terms of rational functions and simple hypergeometric functions which is in exact agreement with the results given previously by other authors.
