Hermitian and gauge-covariant Hamiltonians for a particle in a magnetic field on cylindrical and spherical surfaces

Shikakhwa, M. S.
Chair, N.
We construct the Hermitian Schrodinger Hamiltonian of spin-less particles and the gauge-covariant Pauli Hamiltonian of spin one-half particles in a magnetic field, which are confined to cylindrical and spherical surfaces. The approach does not require the use of involved differential-geometrical methods and is intuitive and physical, relying on the general requirements of Hermicity and gauge-covariance. The surfaces are embedded in the full three-dimensional space and confinement to the surfaces is achieved by strong radial potentials. We identify the Hermitian and gauge-covariant (in the presence of a magnetic field) physical radial momentum in each case and set it to zero upon confinement to the surfaces. The resulting surface Hamiltonians are seen to be automatically Hermitian and gauge-covariant. The well-known geometrical kinetic energy also emerges naturally.


Singular potentials and moving boundaries in 3D
Yuce, C (Elsevier BV, 2004-02-16)
In this Letter, the problem of a spinless particle under the time-dependent harmonic oscillator potential and a singular potential with a moving boundary is studied in the spherical coordinates. Some transformations are used to transform the moving boundary conditions to the fixed boundary conditions. An exact solution is constructed.
Theoretical determination of K-1(1270,1400) mixing angle in QCD
Dag, Huseyin; Özpineci, Altuğ; Cagil, Ayce; ERKOL, GÜRAY (2011-08-25)
In quark model, the strange axial vector mesons K1(1270) and K1(1400) are defined as the mixtures of orbital angular momentum states K1A and K1B. In this work, by using the orthogonality of the mass eigenstates, we have estimated the K1(1270, 1400) mixing angle θK1, where we have found that θK1 sime −(39 ± 4)°.

The Hamiltonian for an electron travelling through a large-amplitude backward electromagnetic wave, an axial guide magnetic field and radiation field is formulated. Poincare surface-of-section plots show that this Hamiltonian is non-integrable, and leads to chaotic trajectories. Equilibrium conditions are derived in the limit where the radiation field approaches zero. Compared to conventional FEL, the total energy of the system at pondermotive resonance E(c) is large, while the electron's critical energy...
Exact solution of the Dirac equation with the Mie-type potential under the pseudospin and spin symmetry limit
Aydogdu, Oktay; Sever, Ramazan (Elsevier BV, 2010-02-01)
We investigate the exact solution of the Dirac equation for the Mie-type potentials under the conditions of pseudospin and spin symmetry limits. The bound state energy equations and the corresponding two-component spinor wave functions of the Dirac particles for the Mie-type potentials with pseudospin and spin symmetry are obtained. We use the asymptotic iteration method in the calculations. Closed forms of the energy eigenvalues are obtained for any spin-orbit coupling term K. We also investigate the energ...
Anti-de Sitter-Wave Solutions of Higher Derivative Theories
GÜRSES, METİN; Hervik, Sigbjorn; Sisman, Tahsin Cagri; Tekin, Bayram (American Physical Society (APS), 2013-09-05)
We show that the recently found anti-de Sitter (AdS)-plane and AdS-spherical wave solutions of quadratic curvature gravity also solve the most general higher derivative theory in D dimensions. More generally, we show that the field equations of such theories reduce to an equation linear in the Ricci tensor for Kerr-Schild spacetimes having type-N Weyl and type-N traceless Ricci tensors.
