Little groups and Maxwell-type tensors for massive and massless particles

Baskal, S
Kim, YS
The massive and massless representations of four-vectors and Maxwell-type tensors are constructed as bilinear combinations of SL(2, C)-spinors and are evaluated on a unified description upon adopting the group contraction procedure of O(3)-like little group to E(2)-like little group. Contraction of massive particle representations leads to gauge-dependent vectors as well as the gauge-independent ''state vectors'' constructed by Weinberg. It, is shown that gauge degrees of freedom associated with the translation-like transformations of the E(2)-like little group can be traced to the spinors that undergo spin hips in the infinite-momentum/zero-mass limit.


Discrete symmetries and nonlocal reductions
GÜRSES, METİN; Pekcan, Asli; Zheltukhın, Kostyantyn (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-31)
We show that nonlocal reductions of systems of integrable nonlinear partial differential equations are the special discrete symmetry transformations.
Effective Mass Schrodinger Equation via Point Canonical Transformation
Arda, Altug; Sever, Ramazan (IOP Publishing, 2010-07-01)
Exact solutions of the effective radial Schrodinger equation are obtained for some inverse potentials by using the point canonical transformation. The energy eigenvalues and the corresponding wave functions are calculated by using a set of mass distributions.
Bound states of the Dirac equation for the PT-symmetric generalized Hulthen potential by the Nikiforov-Uvarov method
Egrifes, H; Sever, Ramazan (Elsevier BV, 2005-09-05)
The one-dimensional Dirac equation is solved for the PT-symmetric generalized Hulthen potential. The Nikiforov-Uvarov method which is based on solving the second-order linear differential equations by reduction to a generalized equation of hypergeometric type is used to obtain exact energy eigenvalues and corresponding eigenfunctions.
On a transformation between hierarchies of integrable equations
GÜRSES, METİN; Zheltukhın, Kostyantyn (Elsevier BV, 2006-02-20)
A transformation between a hierarchy of integrable equations arising from the standard R-matrix construction on the algebra of differential operators and a hierarchy of integrable equations arising from a deformation of the standard R-matrix is given.
Approximate solution to the time-dependent Kratzer plus screened Coulomb potential in the Feinberg-Horodecki equation
Farout, Mahmoud; Sever, Ramazan; Ikhdair, Sameer M. (IOP Publishing, 2020-06-01)
We obtain the quantized momentum eigenvalues P-n together with space-like coherent eigenstates for the space-like counterpart of the Schrodinger equation, the Feinberg-Horodecki equation, with a combined Kratzer potential plus screened coulomb potential which is constructed by temporal counterpart of the spatial form of these potentials. The present work is illustrated with two special cases of the general form: the time-dependent modified Kratzer potential and the time-dependent screened Coulomb potential.
