    • Uniqueness of the solutions of multichannel scattering equation in three particle system

      Suprokash Mukherjee

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      A new approach is made to investigate the old problem of non-uniqueness of the solution of Lippmann-Schwinger equation of three particle system and it is found that even the necessary condition for the existence of the problem is not satisfied.

      M R M Witwit

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The energy levels of the Schrödinger equation for the potentialx2+y2+λ[axxx4+2axyx2y2+ayyy4] are calculated using Hill determinant approach for several eigenstates and over a wide range of values of perturbation parameters. The obtained numerical results agree with those previously reported by other methods.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      An integration method for the Dirac equation is proposed. The method, based on diagonalization, reduces the problem to one of integration of independent second-order differential equations.

    • Quantum instability for a wave packet kicked periodically by a quadratic potential

      A K Sikri M L Narchal

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The quantal behaviour of wave packet periodically kicked by a quadratic potential has been investigated using Floquet theory. The wave function of the particle afterN kicks has been determined. This wave function has been utilized to obtain the packet width, energy and loss of memory as a function of the number of kicks. It has also been shown that the free particle wave packet quasienergy spectrum makes a transition from discrete to absolutely continuous atɛ T=2. The behaviour forɛT>2 is quantum mechanically irregular.

    • A semi-empirical formula for the energy spacings in Λ-hypernuclear excitation spectra

      M Z Rahman Khan Nasra Neelofer

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      A semi-empirical formula is presented which gives a semi-quantitative account of the excitation energies in Λ-hypernuclear excitation spectra. Many elaborate studies made were numerical, but our studies yield an analytical expression. Different three-dimensional harmonic oscillators for the Λ- and the neutron-hole reproduce the observed energy spacings fairly well. However, it would be misleading that the oscillators give the wave functions of the corresponding states also. In the light of harmonic excitations, we briefly discuss some phenomenological and microscopic Λ-hypernuclear calculations.

    • L-dependent heavy ion fusion potentials

      S V S Sastry A K Mohanty S K Kataria

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The energyE and angular momentuml dependence of optical potential for fusion of16O+208Pb system, observed by Christleyet al [5], is expressed as a function of radial kinetic energy (ɛ) instead of explicitE andl dependence. It is shown that the effects of different channel couplings, which result in different effective potentials, can also be parametrized as a function ofɛ. A correlation is obtained between the energy dependent part of this effective potential and the maximum of the spin enhancement around the Coulomb barrier and both these quantities depend on the details of the channel couplings.

    • Collective bounce-off phenomenon in139La+Ag(Br) reaction at 1.1 A GeV energy

      B Singh H S Palsania V Kumar K B Bhalla S Lokanathan

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Out of a total statistics of 896139La+Ag(Br) interactions, 128 interactions having multiplicity of target fragments (Z⩾1)⩾8 and projectile fragments (Z⩾2)⩾4 have been selected. They correspond to quasi-peripheral interactions. Azimuthal angle correlation between sources of target fragments (TFs) and projectile fragments (PFs) shows the existence of bounce-off effect. Using data of La+Ag(Br) and84Kr+Ag(Br) reactions it is shown that individual helium [Z=2, PFs] and heavier fragment [Z⩾3, PFs] show different emission characteristics. Further, a two prong correlation functionTij) plotted for heavier fragments and helium fragments separately, indicates the possibility of existence of different physical conditions. This observation is supported by the different momentum widths of helium fragments and heavier fragments. From the momentum width data of Kr+Ag(Br) reactions normalized density comes out to be ≈4.7. Using quasi-elastic kinematics for the bounce-off nuclei, the excitation energy has been computed from the experimental data of flow angles. The strength of bounce-off seems to decrease with the increase of excitation energy or temperature.
