We describe a method of solving the nuclear Skyrme-Hartree-Fock problem by using a deformed Cartesian harmonic oscillator basis. The complete list of expressions required to calculate local densities, total energy, and self-consistent fields is presented, and an implementation of the self-consistent symmetries is discussed. Formulas to calculate matrix elements in the Cartesian harmonic oscillator basis are derived for the nuclear and Coulomb interactions. (authors)

The supersymmetric quantization condition is used to study the wave functions of SWKB equivalent -deformed harmonic oscillator which are obtained by using only the knowledge of bound-state spectra of -deformed harmonic oscillator. We have also studied the nonuniqueness of the obtained interactions by this spectral inverse method.

A master equation for the deformed quantum harmonic oscillator interacting with a dissipative environment, in particular with a thermal bath, is derived in the microscopic model by using perturbation theory. The coefficients of the master equation and of equations of motion for observables depend on the deformation function. The steady state solution of the equation for the density matrix in the number representation is obtained and the equilibrium energy of the deformed harmonic oscillator i...

q-Deformed Harmonic Oscillator in Phase Space
Aringazin, A K; Baskoutas, S; Brodimas, G; Jannussis, A; Vlachos, E
1993-01-01
Relation between Bopp-Kubo formulation and Weyl-Wigner-Moyal symbol calculus, and non-commutative geometry interpretation of the phase space representation of quantum mechanics are studied. Harmonic oscillator in phase space via creation and annihilation operators, both the usual and $q$-deformed, is investigated. We found that the Bopp-Kubo formulation is just non-commuting coordinates representation of the symbol calculus. The Wigner operator for the $q$-deformed harmonic oscillator is shown to be proportional to the 3-axis spherical angular momentum operator of the algebra $su_{q}(2)$. The relation of the Fock space for the harmonic oscillator and double Hilbert space of the Gelfand-Naimark-Segal construction is established. The quantum extension of the classical ergodiicity condition is proposed.

Based on the nonperturbative analysis, we show that the classical motion of harmonic oscillator derived from the deformed QM is manifestly in contradiction with observations. For this reason, we take an alternate way for estimating the effect and discuss its possible observational manifestations in macrophysics.
First, Second Quantization and Q-Deformed Harmonic Oscillator
Van Ngu, Man; Gia Vinh, Ngo; Lan, Nguyen Tri; Thanh, Luu Thi Kim; Viet, Nguyen Ai
2015-06-01
Relations between the first, the second quantized representations and deform algebra are investigated. In the case of harmonic oscillator, the axiom of first quantization (the commutation relation between coordinate and momentum operators) and the axiom of second quantization (the commutation relation between creation and annihilation operators) are equivalent. We shown that in the case of q-deformed harmonic oscillator, a violence of the axiom of second quantization leads to a violence of the axiom of first quantization, and inverse. Using the coordinate representation, we study fine structures of the vacuum state wave function depend in the deformation parameter q. A comparison with fine structures of Cooper pair of superconductivity in the coordinate representation is also performed.

RLC circuit realization of a q-deformed harmonic oscillator with time dependent mass
We consider an RLC circuit type realization of a q-deformed harmonic oscillator. The differential equations of motion characterizing this circuit are derived, and it is shown that the RLC circuit gets modified as a result of the q-deformation. The natural frequency, the capacitance and the external power source are all modified and become q-dependent. The energy aspects of the circuit are also studied and the effects of the deformation are shown. - Highlights: • Classically q-deformed harmonic oscillators are equivalent to driven oscillators. • RLC circuit realization of q-deformed harmonic oscillators is derived. • A mass dependent q-deformed harmonic oscillator is used for this realization. • The capacitance and natural frequency are modified because of the deformation. • Energy aspects of the circuit are studied and the effect of deformation is observed
The 3-Dimensional q-Deformed Harmonic Oscillator and Magic Numbers of Alkali Metal Clusters
Bonatsos, Dennis; Raychev, P P; Roussev, R P; Terziev, P A; Bonatsos, Dennis
1999-01-01
Magic numbers predicted by a 3-dimensional q-deformed harmonic oscillator with Uq(3) > SOq(3) symmetry are compared to experimental data for alkali metal clusters, as well as to theoretical predictions of jellium models, Woods--Saxon and wine bottle potentials, and to the classification scheme using the 3n+l pseudo quantum number. The 3-dimensional q-deformed harmonic oscillator correctly predicts all experimentally observed magic numbers up to 1500 (which is the expected limit of validity for theories based on the filling of electronic shells), thus indicating that Uq(3), which is a nonlinear extension of the U(3) symmetry of the spherical (3-dimensional isotropic) harmonic oscillator, is a good candidate for being the symmetry of systems of alkali metal clusters.

Magic numbers predicted by a 3-dimensional q-deformed harmonic oscillator with Uq(3)>SOq(3) symmetry are compared to experimental data for atomic clusters of alkali metals (Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs), noble metals (Cu, Ag, Au), divalent metals (Zn, Cd), and trivalent metals (Al, In), as well as to theoretical predictions of jellium models, Woods-Saxon and wine bottle potentials, and to the classification scheme using the 3n+l pseudo quantum number.

On detecting harmonic oscillations

In this paper, we focus on the following testing problem: assume that we are given observations of a real-valued signal along the grid $0,1,\\ldots,N-1$, corrupted by white Gaussian noise. We want to distinguish between two hypotheses: (a) the signal is a nuisance – a linear combination of $d_{n}$ harmonic oscillations of known frequencies, and (b) signal is the sum of a nuisance and a linear combination of a given number $d_{s}$ of harmonic oscillations with unknown frequencies, and such that...
Harmonic oscillator with complex frequency
In the present paper it is studied the problem of the harmonic oscillator with complex frequency. A special case of this problem is the determination of the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the squeeze operator in quantum optics. The Hamilton operator of the complex harmonic oscillator is non-Hermitian and its study leads to the Lie-admissible theory. Because of the complex frequency the eigenvalues of the energy are complex numbers and the partition function of Boltzman and the free energy of Helmoltz are complex functions. Especially the imaginary part of the free energy describes the metastable states

The Fourier series method is used to solve the homogeneous equation governing the motion of the harmonic oscillator.

Quantum Dynamics of a Harmonic Oscillator in a Defomed Bath in the Presence of Lamb Shift
Daeimohamad, M.; Mohammadi, M.
2012-10-01
In this paper, we investigate the dissipative quantum dynamics of a harmonic oscillator in the presence a deformed bath by considering the Lamb shift term. The deformed bath is modelled by a collection of deformed quantum harmonic oscillators as a generalization of Hopfield model. The Langevin equation for both the photon number and the fluctuation spectrum under the Weisskopf-Winger approximation are obtained and discussed.

Argand diagrams, harmonic oscillators, and record-playing tonearms
Piccard, Richard D.
1986-04-01
The complex analysis of the driven, damped, harmonic oscillator is reviewed for the specific case that the driving force is produced by ``wiggling the other end of the spring,'' a case which many find intuitively appealing. The solution is examined using the Cartesian and polar presentations in the complex plane. The record-playing tonearm is particularly suited as a ``practical example'' because it naturally leads to a question that is much easier to answer in terms of the Argand diagram: What will the cartridge output be?
Quantum wormholes and harmonic oscillators
Garay, Luis J.
1993-01-01
The quantum state of a wormhole can be represented by a path integral over all asymptotically Euclidean four-geometries and all matter fields which have prescribed values, the arguments of the wave function, on a three-surface which divides the space time manifold into two disconnected parts. Minisuperspace models which consist of a homogeneous massless scalar field coupled to a Friedmann-Robertson-Walker space time are considered. Once the path integral over the lapse function is performed, the requirement that the space time be asymptotically Euclidean can be accomplished by fixing the asymptotic gravitational momentum in the remaining path integral. It is argued that there does not exist any wave function which corresponds to asymptotic field configurations such that the effective gravitational constant is negative in the asymptotic region. Then, the wormhole wave functions can be written as linear combinations of harmonic oscillator wave functions.
Pisot q-coherent states quantization of the harmonic oscillator
We revisit the quantized version of the harmonic oscillator obtained through a q-dependent family of coherent states. For each q, 0−1 is a quadratic unit Pisot number, since then the q-deformed integers form Fibonacci-like sequences of integers. We then examine the main characteristics of the corresponding quantum oscillator: localization in the configuration and in the phase spaces, angle operator, probability distributions and related statistical features, time evolution and semi-classical phase space trajectories. - Highlights: ► Quantized version of the harmonic oscillator (HO) through a q-family of coherent states. ► For q,0< q<1 these normalized states form an overcomplete set that resolves the unity with respect to an explicit measure. ►q-Deformed numbers are Fibonacci-like integer sequences (1/q a quadratic unit Pisot number). ► We examine the main physical characteristics of the corresponding quantum oscillator.
Harmonic Oscillators and Elementary Particles
Sobouti, Y
2016-01-01
Two dynamical systems with same symmetry should have features in common, and as far as their shared symmetry is concerned, one may represent the other. The three light quark constituents of the hadrons, a) have an approximate flavor SU(3) symmetry, b) have an exact color SU(3) symmetry, and c) as spin 1/2 particles, have a Lorentz SO(3,1) symmetry. So does a 3D harmonic oscillator. a) Its Hamiltonian has the SU(3) symmetry, breakable if the 3 fundamental modes of oscillation are not identical. b) The 3 directions of oscillation have the permutation symmetry. This enables one to create three copies of unbreakable SU(3) symmetry for each mode of the oscillation, and mimic the color of the elementary particles. And c) The Lagrangian of the 3D oscillator has the SO(3,1) symmetry. This can be employed to accommodate the spin of the particles. In this paper we draw up a one-to-one correspondence between the eigen modes of the Poisson bracket operator of the 3D oscillator and the flavor multiplets of the particles, ...
Supersymmetric partners of the truncated harmonic oscillator
First and second order supersymmetric transformations are applied to the truncated harmonic oscillator to generate new Hamiltonians with known spectra. We also study the effect of these transformations on the eigenfunctions of the initial Hamiltonian. Finally the link between first and the second order supersymmetric partners of the truncated harmonic oscillator which possess third-order differential ladder operators with the Painlevé IV equation is used to obtain several solutions of this non-linear second-order differential equation.
Entanglement entropies of coupled harmonic oscillators

For coupled harmonic oscillators at equilibrium, the extended entanglement entropy is derived using the TFD method, and it is demonstrated to be controlled by temperature and coupling parameters. For non-equilibrium systems, in addition to temperature and coupling parameters, the time dependence of the extended entanglement entropy is calculated in accordance with th...
Instanton solutions on the polymer harmonic oscillator
Olivares, Joan A Austrich; Vergara, J David
2016-01-01
Instanton methods are applied to the polymer harmonic oscillator. The zeroth energy eigenvalue on the entire polymer Hilbert space is obtained. The result is consistent with the band structure of the standard regular quantum pendulum. The band structure of the energy spectrum emerges with discrete topology and disappears in the formal limit $\\mu \\rightarrow 0$, which gives rise to the standard quantum harmonic oscillator spectrum.
Harmonic Oscillators as Bridges between Theories
Other than scattering problems where perturbation theory is applicable, there are basically two ways to solve problems in physics. One is to reduce the problem to harmonic oscillators, and the other is to formulate the problem in terms of two-by-two matrices. If two oscillators are coupled, the problem combines both two-by-two matrices and harmonic oscillators. This method then becomes a powerful research tool to cover many different branches of physics. Indeed, the concept and methodology in one branch of physics can be translated into another through the common mathematical formalism. It is noted that the present form of quantum mechanics is largely a physics of harmonic oscillators. Special relativity is the physics of the Lorentz group which can be represented by the group of by two-by-two matrices commonly called SL(2, c). Thus the coupled harmonic oscillators can therefore play the role of combining quantum mechanics with special relativity. Both Paul A. M. Dirac and Richard P. Feynman were fond of harmonic oscillators, while they used different approaches to physical problems. Both were also keenly interested in making quantum mechanics compatible with special relativity. It is shown that the coupled harmonic oscillators can bridge these two different approaches to physics

The harmonic oscillator and nuclear physics
Rowe, D. J.
1993-01-01
The three-dimensional harmonic oscillator plays a central role in nuclear physics. It provides the underlying structure of the independent-particle shell model and gives rise to the dynamical group structures on which models of nuclear collective motion are based. It is shown that the three-dimensional harmonic oscillator features a rich variety of coherent states, including vibrations of the monopole, dipole, and quadrupole types, and rotations of the rigid flow, vortex flow, and irrotational flow types. Nuclear collective states exhibit all of these flows. It is also shown that the coherent state representations, which have their origins in applications to the dynamical groups of the simple harmonic oscillator, can be extended to vector coherent state representations with a much wider range of applicability. As a result, coherent state theory and vector coherent state theory become powerful tools in the application of algebraic methods in physics.
Deepening the vector coherent state analysis: Revisiting the harmonic oscillator
Aremua, I; Hounkonnou, M N
2011-01-01
Vector coherent states (VCS) viewed as a generalization of ordinary coherent states for higher rank tensor Hilbert spaces are investigated. We consider a systematic way of generating classes of VCS which are solvable (i.e., in the present context, normalizable states satisfying a resolution of the identity) on the Hilbert space of 2D and 3D harmonic oscillators. Thanks to the type of construction, these VCS are classified according to specific criteria. Furthermore, in many cases, the found classes of VCS are continuously deformable one onto another, still remaining solvable.
Quantum phases for a generalized harmonic oscillator
Bracken, Paul

An effective Hamiltonian for the generalized harmonic oscillator is determined by using squeezed state wavefunctions. The equations of motion over an extended phase space are determined and then solved perturbatively for a specific choice of the oscillator parameters. These results are used to calculate the dynamic and geometric phases for the generalized oscillator with this choice of parameters.

Harmonic oscillator model for the helium atom
Carlsen, Martin
2015-01-01
A harmonic oscillator model in four dimensions is presented for the helium atom to estimate the distance to the inner and outer electron from the nucleus, the angle between electrons and the energy levels. The method is algebraic and is not based on the choice of correct trial wave function. Three harmonic oscillators and thus three quantum numbers are sufficient to describe the two-electron system. We derive a simple formula for the energy in the general case and in the special case of the Wannier Ridge. For a set of quantum numbers the distance to the electrons and the angle between the electrons are uniquely determined as the intersection between three surfaces. We show that the excited states converge either towards ionization thresholds or towards extreme parallel or antiparallel states and provide an estimate of the ground state energy.
Factorization method for the truncated harmonic oscillator
Fernández C, D. J.; Morales-Salgado, V. S.
2015-04-01
Factorization procedures of first and second order are used to generate Hamiltonians with known spectra departing from the harmonic oscillator with an infinite potential barrier. Certain systems obtained in a straightforward way through said method possess differential ladder operators of both types, third and fourth order. Since systems with this kind of operators are linked with the Painlevé IV and V equations respectively, several solutions of these non-linear second-order differential equations will be simply found.
Casimir Friction Force for Moving Harmonic Oscillators

Casimir friction is analyzed for a pair of dielectric particles in relative motion. We first adopt a microscopic model for harmonically oscillating particles at finite temperature T moving non-relativistically with constant velocity. We use a statistical-mechanical description where time-dependent correlations are involved. This description is physical and direct, and, in spite of its simplicity, is able to elucidate the essentials of the problem. This treatment elaborates upon, and extends, ...
Harmonic Oscillator Potential to describe Internal Dissipation
Peters, R D
2003-01-01
Assuming that a constant potential energy function has meaning for a dissipated harmonic oscillator, then an important issue is the time dependence of the turning points. Turning point studies demonstrate that the common model of external (viscous) damping fails to properly describe those many systems where structural (internal friction) damping is the most important source of dissipation. For internal friction damping, the better model of potential energy is one in which the function is not stationary.

On the Quantization of Damped Harmonic Oscillator
We derive results for two constants of the motion of a one-dimensional damped harmonic oscillator with position-dependent frictional coefficient and use them to obtain two alternative Lagrangian representations, which are not connected by a gauge term. The Hamiltonians corresponding to these Lagrangians lead to canonically inequivalent phase-space descriptions. We could, however, make use of a perturbation theoretic approach to quantize the classical motion using both Hamiltonians and thus demonstrate that the corresponding quantum systems are entirely different.

Information cloning of harmonic oscillator coherent states
N D Hari Dass; Pradeep Ganesh
2002-08-01
We show that in the case of unknown harmonic oscillator coherent statesit is possible to achieve what we call perfect information cloning. By this we mean that it is still possible to make arbitrary number of copies of a state which has exactly the same information content as the original unknown coherent state. By making use of this perfect information cloning it would be possible to estimate the original state through measurements and make arbitrary number of copies of the estimator. We deﬁne the notion of a measurement ﬁdelity and calculate it for our case as well as for the Gaussian cloners.

Unitary relations in time-dependent harmonic oscillators
Song, Dae-Yup
1998-01-01
For a harmonic oscillator with time-dependent (positive) mass and frequency, an unitary operator is shown to transform the quantum states of the system to those of a harmonic oscillator system of unit mass and time-dependent frequency, as well as operators. For a driven harmonic oscillator, it is also shown that, there are unitary transformations which give the driven system from the system of same mass and frequency without driving force. The transformation for a driven oscillator depends on...
Effective harmonic oscillator description of anharmonic molecular vibrations
Tapta Kanchan Roy; M Durga Prasad
2009-09-01
The validity of an effective harmonic oscillator approximation for anharmonic molecular vibrations is tested and compared with vibrational self consistent field and vibrational configurational interaction results. The effective harmonic oscillator is constructed variationally, by taking the trial wave function as a harmonic oscillator eigenfunction with the centroid and width parameter as variational paraeters. It is found that the effective harmonic oscillator approximation provides a description of the anharmonic eigenstates very similar to the vibrational self consistent field results. Coriolis coupling is also included in these studies.
Introduction to Classical and Quantum Harmonic Oscillators
As the title aptly states, this book deals with harmonic oscillators of various kinds, from classical mechanical and electrical oscillations up to quantum oscillations. It is written in a lively language, and occasional interspersed anecdotes make the reading of an otherwise mathematically oriented text quite a pleasure. Although the author claims to have written an 'elementary introduction', it is certainly necessary to have a good deal of previous knowledge in physics (mechanics, electrodynamics, quantum theory), electrical engineering and, of course, mathematics in order to follow the general line of his arguments. The book begins with a thorough treatment of classical oscillators (free, damped, forced) that is followed by an elaboration on Fourier analysis. Lagrange and Hamilton formalisms are then introduced before the problem of coupled oscillations is attacked. A chapter on statistical perspectives leads over to the final discussion of quantum oscillations. With the book comes a diskette containing a number of worksheets (Microsoft Excel) that can be used by the reader for instant visualization to get a better qualitative and quantitative understanding of the material. To the reviewer it seems difficult to pinpoint exactly the range of prospective readership of the book. It can certainly not be intended as a textbook for students, but rather as a reference book for teachers of physics or researchers, who want to look up one or other aspect of harmonic oscillations, for which purpose the diskette represents a very valuable tool.

Interbasis expansions for the isotropic 3D harmonic oscillator and bivariate Krawtchouk polynomials
An explicit expression for the general bivariate Krawtchouk polynomials is obtained in terms of the standard Krawtchouk and dual Hahn polynomials. The bivariate Krawtchouk polynomials occur as matrix elements of the unitary reducible representations of SO(3) on the energy eigenspaces of the three-dimensional isotropic harmonic oscillator and the explicit formula is obtained from the decomposition of these representations into their irreducible components. The decomposition entails expanding the Cartesian basis states in the spherical bases that span irreducible SO(3) representations. The overlap coefficients are obtained from the Clebsch–Gordan problem for the su(1,1) Lie algebra. (paper)

A simple derivation of the classical solutions of a nonlinear model describing a harmonic oscillator on the sphere and the hyperbolic plane is presented in polar coordinates. These solutions are then related to those in cartesian coordinates, whose form was previously guessed. In addition, the nature of the classical orthogonal polynomials entering the bound-state radial wavefunctions of the corresponding quantum model is identified.
Casimir Friction Force for Moving Harmonic Oscillators
Høye, Johan S
2011-01-01
Casimir friction is analyzed for a pair of dielectric particles in relative motion. We first adopt a microscopic model for harmonically oscillating particles at finite temperature T moving non-relativistically with constant velocity. We use a statistical-mechanical description where time-dependent correlations are involved. This description is physical and direct, and, in spite of its simplicity, is able to elucidate the essentials of the problem. This treatment elaborates upon, and extends, an earlier theory of ours back in 1992. The energy change Delta E turns out to be finite in general, corresponding to a finite friction force. In the limit of zero temperature the formalism yields, however, Delta E ->0, this being due to our assumption about constant velocity, meaning slowly varying coupling. For couplings varying more rapidly, there will also be a finite friction force at T=0. As second part of our work, we consider the friction problem using time-dependent perturbation theory. The dissipation, basically...
Quantum control of harmonic oscillator networks
Genoni, Marco G; Kim, M S; Burgarth, Daniel
2011-01-01
Controllability -- the possibility of performing any target dynamics by applying a set of available operations -- is a fundamental requirement for the practical use of any physical system. For finite-dimensional systems, as for instance spin systems, precise criterions to establish controllability, such as the so called rank criterion, are well known. However most physical systems require a description in terms of an infinite-dimensional Hilbert space whose controllability properties are poorly understood. Here, we investigate infinite-dimensional bosonic quantum systems -- encompassing quantum light, ensembles of bosonic atoms, motional degrees of freedom of ions, and nano-mechanical oscillators -- governed by quadratic Hamiltonians (such that their evolution is analogous to coupled harmonic oscillators). After having highlighted the intimate connection between controllability and recurrence in the Hilbert space, we prove that, for coupled oscillators, a simple extra condition has to be fulfilled to extend t...
The stretched harmonic oscillator. A test of semiclassical approximations
We test the validity of semiclassical approximations (WKB, Miller and Good) in phase space in the one-dimensional case of independent particles confined by a stretched harmonic oscillator potential. This potential provides an illustrative example for many properties of atomic nuclei related to the saturation property of nuclear forces, while keeping the same mathematical simplicity as the usual harmonic oscillator
Nonlinear supercoherent states and geometric phases for the supersymmetric harmonic oscillator
Díaz-Bautista, Erik
2016-01-01
Nonlinear supercoherent states, which are eigenstates of nonlinear deformations of the Kornbluth-Zypman annihilation operator for the supersymmetric harmonic oscillator, will be studied. They turn out to be expressed in terms of nonlinear coherent states, associated to the corresponding deformations of the standard annihilation operator. We will discuss as well the Heisenberg uncertainty relation for a special particular case, in order to compare our results with those obtained for the Kornbluth-Zypman linear supercoherent states. As the supersymmetric harmonic oscillator executes an evolution loop, such that the evolution operator becomes the identity at a certain time, thus the linear and nonlinear supercoherent states turn out to be cyclic and the corresponding geometric phases will be evaluated.
Improving Density Functionals with Quantum Harmonic Oscillators
Tkatchenko, Alexandre
2013-03-01
Density functional theory (DFT) is the most widely used and successful approach for electronic structure calculations. However, one of the pressing challenges for DFT is developing efficient functionals that can accurately capture the omnipresent long-range electron correlations, which determine the structure and stability of many molecules and materials. Here we show that, under certain conditions, the problem of computing the long-range correlation energy of interacting electrons can be mapped to a system of coupled quantum harmonic oscillators (QHOs). The proposed model allows us to synergistically combine concepts from DFT, quantum chemistry, and the widely discussed random-phase approximation for the correlation energy. In the dipole limit, the interaction energy for a system of coupled QHOs can be calculated exactly, thereby leading to an efficient and accurate model for the many-body dispersion energy of complex molecules and materials. The studied examples include intermolecular binding energies, the conformational hierarchy of DNA structures, the geometry and stability of molecular crystals, and supramolecular host-guest complexes (A. Tkatchenko, R. A. DiStasio Jr., R. Car, M. Scheffler, Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 236402 (2012); R. A. DiStasio Jr., A. von Lilienfeld, A. Tkatchenko, PNAS 109, 14791 (2012); A. Tkatchenko, D. Alfe, K. S.

Damping the zero-point energy of a harmonic oscillator
Philbin, T. G; Horsley, S. A. R.
2013-01-01
The physics of quantum electromagnetism in an absorbing medium is that of a field of damped harmonic oscillators. Yet until recently the damped harmonic oscillator was not treated with the same kind of formalism used to describe quantum electrodynamics in a arbitrary medium. Here we use the techniques of macroscopic QED, based on the Huttner--Barnett reservoir, to describe the quantum mechanics of a damped oscillator. We calculate the thermal and zero-point energy of the oscillator for a rang...
On the truncation of the harmonic oscillator wavepacket
Rebollo-Neira, L; Jain, S [Aston University, Birmingham B4 7ET (United Kingdom)
2005-04-29
We present an interesting result regarding the implication of truncating the wavepacket of the harmonic oscillator. We show that disregarding the non-significant tails of a function which is the superposition of eigenfunctions of the harmonic oscillator has a remarkable consequence: namely, there exist infinitely many different superpositions giving rise to the same function on the interval. Uniqueness, in the case of a wavepacket, is restored by a postulate of quantum mechanics. (letter to the editor)

Harmonic Oscillators as Bridges between Theories: Einstein, Dirac, and Feynman
Y. S. Kim; Noz, Marilyn E.
2004-01-01
Other than scattering problems where perturbation theory is applicable, there are basically two ways to solve problems in physics. One is to reduce the problem to harmonic oscillators, and the other is to formulate the problem in terms of two-by-two matrices. If two oscillators are coupled, the problem combines both two-by-two matrices and harmonic oscillators. This method then becomes a powerful research tool to cover many different branches of physics. Indeed, the concept and methodology in...
3-D harmonic oscillator using the Quon algebra
Quons are particles that violate statistics by a small amount, which is controlled by a single parameter q. The range of variation of the parameter is between -1 and +1, and the limits of the interval correspond respectively to fermionic an bosonic statistics. The particular commutation relations obeyed by quons define an algebra (the so called Quon Algebra), which, for a single degree of freedom, gives results very similar to the ones obtained using Deformed (or Quantum) Algebras, once we keep the interval for q as above defined. For more than a single degree of freedom however, there are some important differences between both algebras. One consequence of those differences is that it is possible to define quonic operators that behave as irreducible SU(2) tensors. In other words, it is possible to assume that quons follow the usual angular momentum coupling rules. This last result opens up the possibility of applying the Quon Algebra to the study of many-body systems, with some important technical advantages over Deformed Algebras. However, those very same differences also introduce some complications when we try to build many-body quonic states, as the appearance of mixed symmetry states in the basis wave-function. In this work we investigate this point, as well as the connection with the possible observables for the theory. A simple application using a quonic version of a three-dimensional harmonic oscillator is also considered in some detail. A comparison between our quonic version and the deformed algebra result for the oscillator is made. (author)

Lie-algebraic structure of 2D harmonic oscillator with non-separable complex coupling
Ganguly, Asish
2011-01-01
Using SU(2)X SU(2) Lie-group structure we obtain the algebraization of 2D harmonic oscillator model with complex quadratic coupling. It is shown that the original time-independent Schr\\"odinger equation in Cartesian coordinates, when mapped to a curved manifold (in general) of arbitrary metric, is expressible as a quadratic combination of group generators modulo a gauge freedom. We propose an improvisation of the usual Lie-algebraic scheme for two critical values of the coupling parameter which makes the problem non-diagonalizable and non-separable. Recently reported results about this interesting non-Hermitian Hamiltonian are confirmed by solving the corresponding spectral problem in a purely algebraic procedure.
Coherent States of Harmonic Oscillator and Generalized Uncertainty Principle
Nozari, K; Nozari, Kourosh; Azizi, Tahereh
2005-01-01
In this paper dynamics and quantum mechanical coherent states of a simple harmonic oscillator are considered in the framework of Generalized Uncertainty Principle(GUP). Equations of motion for simple harmonic oscillator are derived and some of their new implications are discussed. Then coherent states of harmonic oscillator in the case of GUP are compared with relative situation in ordinary quantum mechanics. It is shown that in the framework of GUP there is no considerable difference in definition of coherent states relative to ordinary quantum mechanics. But, considering expectation values and variances of some operators, based on quantum gravitational arguments one concludes that although it is possible to have complete coherency and vanishing broadening in usual quantum mechanics, gravitational induced uncertainty destroys complete coherency in quantum gravity and it is not possible to have a monochromatic ray in principle.
Digitization of the harmonic oscillator in extended relativity
Extended relativistic dynamics (ERD) admits only solutions that have speed bounded by the speed of light c and acceleration bounded by an assumed universal maximal acceleration am. Here we explore the harmonic oscillator under ERD. For oscillators with small natural frequency ω, we recover the classical solutions, while for large ω, the solutions differ significantly from the classical one. The solutions for large ω are a ‘digitization’ of the standard signals of the classical harmonic oscillator. The spectrum of these signals coincides with the energy spectrum of the quantum harmonic oscillator. While for small ω, the thermal radiation is a wave type, for large ω, it becomes pulses of radiation. This provides a possible explanation for the difference in the blackbody radiation for small and large ω and is another indication of the validity of ERD. (paper)

Comm. 176 (2007) 634 Nature of problem: The Single particle energies and the single particle wave functions are calculated from one-body Hamiltonian including a central field of Woods-Saxon type, a spin-orbit interaction, and the Coulomb potential for the protons.

Two quadrature methods of Gauss are employed to calculate respectively the integrals of the matrix elements of the Hamiltonian, and the integral defining the Coulomb potential. Two quantum numbers are conserved: the parity and the signature. Due to the Kramers degeneracy, only positive signature is considered. Therefore, calculations are made for positive and negative parity separately (with positive signature only).

Predicting charmonium and bottomonium spectra with a quark harmonic oscillator
Norbury, J. W.; Badavi, F. F.; Townsend, L. W.
1986-01-01
The nonrelativistic quark model is applied to heavy (nonrelativistic) meson (two-body) systems to obtain sufficiently accurate predictions of the spin-averaged mass levels of the charmonium and bottomonium spectra as an example of the three-dimensional harmonic oscillator. The present calculations do not include any spin dependence, but rather, mass values are averaged for different spins. Results for a charmed quark mass value of 1500 MeV/c-squared show that the simple harmonic oscillator model provides good agreement with experimental values for 3P states, and adequate agreement for the 3S1 states.
Quaternion vector coherent states and supersymmetric harmonic oscillator
By analogy with the standard canonical coherent states of the standard harmonic oscillator the quaternion vector coherent states are realized as the coherent states of the supersymmetric harmonic oscillator with a broken symmetry. In terms of the mentioned states one studies the nonclassical features of the oscillator such as the distribution of the phonon number and the signal-to-quantum noise ratio. One discusses the properties of compressibility and time stability of the coherent states. One plots the orthogonal polynomials associated with the quanternion vector coherent states
Band structure in the polymer quantization of the harmonic oscillator
We discuss the detailed structure of the spectrum of the Hamiltonian for the polymerized harmonic oscillator and compare it with the spectrum in the standard quantization. As we will see the non-separability of the Hilbert space implies that the point spectrum consists of bands similar to the ones appearing in the treatment of periodic potentials. This feature of the spectrum of the polymeric harmonic oscillator may be relevant for the discussion of the polymer quantization of the scalar field and may have interesting consequences for the statistical mechanics of these models.

It is shown that the symmetry Lie algebra of a quantum system with accidental degeneracy can be obtained by means of the Noether's theorem. The procedure is illustrated by considering a generalized anisotropic two dimensional harmonic oscillator, which can have an infinite set of states with the same energy characterized by an u(1,1) Lie algebra.
Reduction of superintegrable systems: the anisotropic harmonic oscillator

We introduce a new 2N--parametric family of maximally superintegrable systems in N dimensions, obtained as a reduction of an anisotropic harmonic oscillator in a 2N--dimensional configuration space. These systems possess closed bounded orbits and integrals of motion which are polynomial in the momenta. They generalize known examples of superintegrable models in the Euclidean plane.
A stationary Green function is calculated for the Schroedinger Hamiltonian of the multidimensional isotropic harmonic oscillator and for physical systems, which may, somehow, have their Hamiltonian reduced to one in the form of a harmonic oscillator, for any dimension
Time-dependent coupled harmonic oscillators: classical and quantum solutions
In this work we present the classical and quantum solutions for an arbitrary system of time-dependent coupled harmonic oscillators, where the masses (m), frequencies (ω) and coupling parameter (k) are functions of time. To obtain the classical solutions, we use a coordinate and momentum transformations along with a canonical transformation to write the original Hamiltonian as the sum of two Hamiltonians of uncoupled harmonic oscillators with modified time-dependent frequencies and unitary masses. To obtain the exact quantum solutions we use a unitary transformation and the Lewis and Riesenfeld (LR) invariant method. The exact wave functions are obtained by solving the respective Milne–Pinney (MP) equation for each system. We obtain the solutions for the system with m1 = m2 = m0eγt, ω1 = ω01e-γt/2, ω2 = ω02e-γt/2 and k = k0. (author)

We consider a systematic way of generating classes of VCS which are solvable (i.e., in the present context, normalizable states satisfying a resolution of the identity) on the Hilbert space of 2D and 3D harmonic oscillators. Thanks to the type of construction, these VCS are classified according to specific criteria. Furthermore, in many cases, the found c...
Rabi oscillation between states of a coupled harmonic oscillator
Rabi oscillation between bound states of a single potential is well known. However the corresponding formula between the states of two different potentials has not been obtained yet. In this work, we derive Rabi formula between the states of a coupled harmonic oscillator which may be used as a simple model for the electron transfer. The expression is similar to typical Rabi formula for a single potential. This result may be used to describe transitions between coupled diabatic potential curves

The uncertainty relation of the system is always larger than ħ=2 not only in number but also in the thermal state as expected. We used the diagonal elements of density operator satisfying Leouville–von Neumann equation to calculate various expectation values in the thermal state. We applied our theory to a special case which is the forced Caldirola–Kanai oscillator.

Nishiyama, Yoshio
2001-01-01
A trajectory of a harmonic oscillator obeying the Schreodinger wave equation is exactly derived and illustrated. The trajectory resembles well the classical orbit between the turning points, and also runs through the tunneling region. The dynamics of the `particle' motion and the wave function associated with the motion are proposed. The period of a round trip on the trajectory is exactly equal to that obtained in classical mechanics.

Harmonic Oscillator Model for Radin's Markov-Chain Experiments
The conscious observer stands as a central figure in the measurement problem of quantum mechanics. Recent experiments by Radin involving linear Markov chains driven by random number generators illuminate the role and temporal dynamics of observers interacting with quantum mechanically labile systems. In this paper a Lagrangian interpretation of these experiments indicates that the evolution of Markov chain probabilities can be modeled as damped harmonic oscillators. The results are best interpreted in terms of symmetric equicausal determinism rather than strict retrocausation, as posited by Radin. Based on the present analysis, suggestions are made for more advanced experiments
Specific heat of the harmonic oscillator within generalized equilibrium statistics
Within the generalized equilibrium statistics recently introduced by Tsallis, we calculate the thermal dependence of the specific heat corresponding to a harmonic-oscillator-likes spectrum, namely, εn = ω(n-α), (where ω >O,n = 0,1,2,...). The influences of q and α are exhibited. Physically inaccessible and/or thermally frozen gaps are obtained in the low temperature region, and, for q > 1, oscillations are observed in the high temperature region. The specific heat of the two-level system is also shown. (author)
Effective field theory in the harmonic-oscillator basis
Binder, S; Hagen, G; Papenbrock, T; Wendt, K A
2015-01-01
We develop interactions from chiral effective field theory (EFT) that are tailored to the harmonic oscillator basis. As a consequence, ultraviolet convergence with respect to the model space is implemented by construction and infrared convergence can be achieved by enlarging the model space for the kinetic energy. We derive useful analytical expressions for an exact and efficient calculation of matrix elements. By fitting to realistic phase shifts and deuteron data we construct an effective interaction from chiral EFT at next-to-leading order. Many-body coupled-cluster calculations of nuclei up to 132Sn exhibit a fast convergence of ground-state energies and radii in feasible model spaces.
Optimal control of a harmonic oscillator: Economic interpretations
Janová, Jitka; Hampel, David
2013-10-01
Optimal control is a popular technique for modelling and solving the dynamic decision problems in economics. A standard interpretation of the criteria function and Lagrange multipliers in the profit maximization problem is well known. On a particular example, we aim to a deeper understanding of the possible economic interpretations of further mathematical and solution features of the optimal control problem: we focus on the solution of the optimal control problem for harmonic oscillator serving as a model for Phillips business cycle. We discuss the economic interpretations of arising mathematical objects with respect to well known reasoning for these in other problems.
Measuring irreversible dynamics of a quantum harmonic oscillator
Morigi, Giovanna; Solano, Enrique; Englert, Berthold-Georg; Walther, Herbert
2002-01-01
We show that the unitary evolution of a harmonic oscillator coupled to a two-level system can be undone by a suitable manipulation of the two-level system—more specifically, by a quasi-instantaneous phase change. This enables us to isolate the dissipative evolution to which the oscillator may be exposed in addition. With this method we study the decoherence time of a photon mode in cavity QED, and that of the quantized harmonic motion of trapped ions. We comment on the relation to spin echoes...
High spin rotations of nuclei with the harmonic oscillator potential
Calculations of the nuclear properties at high angular momentum have been performed recently. They are based on the liquid drop model of a nucleus and/or on the assumption of the single particle shell structure of the nucleonic motion. The calculations are usually complicated and involve long computer codes. In this article we shall discuss general trends in fast rotating nuclei in the approximation of the harmonic oscillator potential. We shall see that using the Bohr Mottelson simplified version of the rigorous solution of Valatin one can perform a rather simple analysis of the rotational bands, structure of the yrast line, moments of inertia etc. in the rotating nucleus. While the precision fit to experimental data in actual nuclei is not the purpose of this paper, one can still hope to reach some general understanding within the model of the simple relations resulting in nuclei at high spin.

Symmetries and conservation laws of the damped harmonic oscillator
Amitava Choudhuri; Subrata Ghosh; B Talukdar
2008-04-01
We work with a formulation of Noether-symmetry analysis which uses the properties of infinitesimal point transformations in the space-time variables to establish the association between symmetries and conservation laws of a dynamical system. Here symmetries are expressed in the form of generators. We have studied the variational or Noether symmetries of the damped harmonic oscillator representing it by an explicitly time-dependent Lagrangian and found that a five-parameter group of transformations leaves the action integral invariant. Amongst the associated conserved quantities only two are found to be functionally independent. These two conserved quantities determine the solution of the problem and correspond to a two-parameter Abelian subgroup.
Ecolosical optimization of an irreversible harmonic oscillators Carnot heat engine
LIU XiaoWei; CHEN LinGen; WU Feng; SUN FengRui
2009-01-01
A model of an irreversible quantum Carnot heat engine with heat resistance, internal irreversibility and heat leakage and many non-interacting harmonic oscillators is established in this paper. Based on the quantum master equation and semi-group approach, equations of some important performance parameters, such as power output, efficiency, exergy loss rate and ecological function for the irreversible quantum Carnot heat engine are derived. The optimal ecological performance of the heat engine in the classical limit is analyzed with numerical examples. Effects of internal irreversibility and heat leakage on the ecological performance are discussed. A performance comparison of the quantum heat engine under maximum ecological function and maximum power conditions is also performed.
Analytical Solution of Smoluchowski Equation in Harmonic Oscillator Potential
SUN Xiao-Jun; LU Xiao-Xia; YAN Yu-Liang; DUAN Jun-Feng; ZHANG Jing-Shang
2005-01-01
Non-equilibrium fission has been described by diffusion model. In order to describe the diffusion process analytically, the analytical solution of Smoluchowski equation in harmonic oscillator potential is obtained. This analytical solution is able to describe the probability distribution and the diffusive current with the variable x and t. The results indicate that the probability distribution and the diffusive current are relevant to the initial distribution shape, initial position, and the nuclear temperature T; the time to reach the quasi-stationary state is proportional to friction coefficient β, but is independent of the initial distribution status and the nuclear temperature T. The prerequisites of negative diffusive current are justified. This method provides an approach to describe the diffusion process for fissile process in complicated potentials analytically.
Basic Canonical Brackets Without Canonical Conjugate Momenta: Supersymmetric Harmonic Oscillator
Shukla, A; Malik, R P
2014-01-01
We exploit the ideas of spin-statistics theorem, normal-ordering and the key concepts behind the symmetry principles to derive the canonical (anti)commutators for the case of a one (0 + 1)-dimensional (1D) supersymmetric (SUSY) harmonic oscillator without taking the help of the mathematical definition of the canonical conjugate momenta with respect to the bosonic and fermionic variables of this toy model for the Hodge theory (where the continuous and discrete symmetries of the theory provide the physical realizations of the de Rham cohomological operators of differential geometry). In our present endeavor, it is the full set of continuous symmetries and their corresponding generators that lead to the derivation of basic (anti)commutators amongst the creation and annihilation operators that appear in the normal mode expansions of the dynamical variables of our theory.
Multiquark Cluster Form Factors In the Relativistic Harmonic Oscillator Model
Wu, Qing; Xiang, Qian-fei; Ma, Wei-xin
2014-01-01
A QCD multiquark cluster system is studied in the relativistic harmonic oscillator potential model (RHOPM), and the electromagnetic form factors of the pion, proton and deuteron in the RHOPM are predicted. The calculated theoretical results are then compared with existing experimental data, finding very good agreement between the theoretical predictions and experimental data for these three target particles. We claim that this model can be applied to study QCD hadronic properties, particularly neutron properties, and to find six-quark cluster and/or nine-quark cluster probabilities in light nuclei such as helium $^{3}He$ and tritium $^{3}H$. This is a problem of particular importance and interest in quark nuclear physics.
Effective field theory in the harmonic oscillator basis
Binder, S.; Ekström, A.; Hagen, G.; Papenbrock, T.; Wendt, K. A.
2016-04-01
We develop interactions from chiral effective field theory (EFT) that are tailored to the harmonic oscillator basis. As a consequence, ultraviolet convergence with respect to the model space is implemented by construction and infrared convergence can be achieved by enlarging the model space for the kinetic energy. In oscillator EFT, matrix elements of EFTs formulated for continuous momenta are evaluated at the discrete momenta that stem from the diagonalization of the kinetic energy in the finite oscillator space. By fitting to realistic phase shifts and deuteron data we construct an effective interaction from chiral EFT at next-to-leading order. Many-body coupled-cluster calculations of nuclei up to 132Sn converge fast for the ground-state energies and radii in feasible model spaces.

We report that upon excitation by a single pulse, the classical harmonic oscillator immersed in classical electromagnetic zero-point radiation, as described by random electrodynamics, exhibits a quantized excitation spectrum in agreement to that of the quantum harmonic oscillator. This numerical result is interesting in view of the generally accepted idea that classical theories do not support quantized energy spectra.

The q-deformation of harmonic oscillators is shown to lead to q-nonlinear vibrations. The examples of q-nonlinearized wave equation and Schr\\"odinger equation are considered. The procedure is generalized to broader class of nonlinearities related to other types of deformations. The nonlinear noncanonical transforms used in the deformation procedure are shown to preserve in some cases the linear dynamical equations, for instance, for the harmonic oscillators.

We consider a Generalized Uncertainty Principle (GUP) framework which predicts a maximal uncertainty in momentum and minimal uncertainties both in position and momentum. We apply supersymmetric quantum mechanics method and the shape invariance condition to obtain the exact harmonic oscillator eigenvalues in this GUP context. We find the supersymmetric partner Hamiltonians and show that the harmonic oscillator belongs to a hierarchy of Hamiltonians with a shift in momentum representation and different masses and frequencies. We also study the effect of a uniform electric field on the harmonic oscillator energy spectrum in this setup
Damping of a harmonic oscillator in a squeezed vacuum without rotating-wave approximation
A single harmonic oscillator interacting with a broadband squeezed reservoir is analyzed within the framework of master equation without invoking the rotating-wave approximation. The dynamical evolution and photon statistics of the system are investigated by studying mean photon number and second order intensity-intensity correlation function, respectively, under resonance condition which show transient oscillations at twice the harmonic oscillator frequency. The transient fluorescent spectrum reveals asymmetric features. Inclusion of vacuum and field-dependent frequency shifts affects the thermal equilibrium value of the average photon number of the harmonic oscillator

We study the generalized harmonic oscillator that has both the position-dependent mass and the potential depending on the form of mass function in a more general framework. The explicit expressions of the eigenvalue and eigenfunction for such a system are given, they have the same forms as those for the usual harmonic oscillator with constant mass. The coherent state and its properties for the system with PDM are also discussed. We give the corresponding effective potentials for several mass functions, the systems with such potentials are isospectral to the usual harmonic oscillator.
Even and Odd Coherent States for Time-Dependent Harmonic Oscillator
WEI Lian-Fu; YANG Qing-Yi; WANG Shun-Jin
2002-01-01
The dynamical invariant for a general time-dependent harmonic oscillator is constructed by making use of two linearly independent solutions to the classical equation of motion. In terms of this dynamical invariant we define the time-dependent creation and annihilation operators and relevantly introduce even and odd coherent states for time dependent harmonic oscillator. The mathematical and quantum statistical properties of these states are discussed in detail. The harmonic oscillator with periodically varying frequency is treated as a demonstration of our general approach.
Entangled Harmonic Oscillators and Space-time Entanglement
Baskal, Sibel; Noz, Marilyn E
2016-01-01
The mathematical basis for the Gaussian entanglement is discussed in detail, as well as its implications in the internal space-time structure of relativistic extended particles. It is shown that the Gaussian entanglement shares the same set of mathematical formulas with the harmonic oscillator in the Lorentz-covariant world. It is thus possible to transfer the concept of entanglement to the Lorentz-covariant picture of the bound state which requires both space and time separations between two constituent particles. These space and time variables become entangled as the bound state moves with a relativistic speed. It is shown also that our inability to measure the time-separation variable leads to an entanglement entropy together with a rise in the temperature of the bound state. As was noted by Paul A. M. Dirac in 1963, the system of two oscillators contains the symmetries of O(3,2) de Sitter group containing two O(3,1) Lorentz groups as its subgroups. Dirac noted also that the system contains the symmetry of...
Harmonic Oscillator Trap and the Phase-Shift Approximation
Köhler, H S
2016-01-01
The energy-spectrum of two point-like particles interacting in a 3-D isotropic Harmonic Oscillator (H.O.) trap is related to the free scattering phase-shifts $\\delta$ of the particles by a formula first published by Busch et al. It is here used to find an expression for the \\it shift \\rm of the energy levels, caused by the interaction, rather than the perturbed spectrum itself. In the limit of high energy (large quantum number $n$ of the H.O.) this shift is shown to be given by $-2\\frac{\\delta}{\\pi}$, also valid in the limit of infinite as well as zero scattering length at all H.O. energies. Numerical investigation shows that the shifts differ from the exact result of Busch et al, by less than $<\\frac{1}{2}\\%$ except for $n=0$ when it can be as large as $\\approx 2.5\\%$. This approximation for the energy-shift is well known from another exactly solvable model, namely that of two particles interacting in a spherical infinite square-well trap (or box) of radius $R$ in the limit $R\\rightarrow \\infty$, and/or i...

For the time-dependent harmonic oscillator and generalized harmonic oscillator with or without external forces in non-commutative space, wave functions, and geometric phases are derived using the Lewis-Riesenfeld invariant.Coherent states are obtained as the ground state of the forced system. Quantum fluctuations are calculated too. It is seen that geometric phases and quantum fluctuations are greatly affected by the non-commutativity of the space.

Our study is based on an approximate analytic solution to the time-dependent harmonic oscillator equation with a subperiod function parameter. This continuous treatment differs from former studies that involve the matching of two time-independent solutions at the discontinuity. This formalism requires an ad hoc transformation of the original differential equation and isalso applicable for rapid, a...

In the result of calculation, it has been understood that the analytical expression obtained for energy spectra of electrons is not parabolic
U(3) and Pseudo-U(3) Symmetry of the Relativistic Harmonic Oscillator
We show that a Dirac Hamiltonian with equal scalar and vector harmonic oscillator potentials has not only a spin symmetry but a U(3) symmetry and that a Dirac Hamiltonian with scalar and vector harmonic oscillator potentials equal in magnitude but opposite in sign has not only a pseudospin symmetry but a pseudo-U(3) symmetry. We derive the generators of the symmetry for each case

The harmonic oscillator in Snyder space is investigated in its classical and quantum versions. The classical trajectory is obtained and the semiclassical quantization from the phase space trajectories is discussed. An effective cut-off to high frequencies is found. The quantum version is developed and an equivalent usual harmonic oscillator is obtained through an effective mass and an effective frequency introduced in the model. This modified parameters give us a modified energy spectrum also.

We derive the relativistic energy spectrum for the modified Dirac equation by adding a harmonic oscillator potential where the coordinates and momenta are assumed to obey the commutation relation [x̂,p̂] = iℏ(1 + ηp2). In the nonrelativistic (NR) limit, our results are in agreement with the ones obtained previously. Furthermore, the extension to the construction of creation and annihilation operators for the harmonic oscillators with minimal length uncertainty relation is presented. Finally, we show that the commutation relation of the SU(1, 1) ˜SO(2, 1) algebra is satisfied by the operators ℒ±̂ and ℒẑ.
On the effects of a screw dislocation and a linear potential on the harmonic oscillator
Bueno, M. J.; Furtado, C.; Bakke, K.
2016-09-01
Quantum effects on the harmonic oscillator due to the presence of a linear scalar potential and a screw dislocation are investigated. By searching for bound states solutions, it is shown that an Aharonov-Bohm-type effect for bound states and a restriction of the values of the angular frequency of the harmonic oscillator can be obtained, where the allowed values are determined by the topology of the screw dislocation and the quantum numbers associated with the radial modes and the angular momentum. As particular cases, the angular frequency and the energy levels associated with the ground state and the first excited state of the system are obtained.

Numerical solution of the Schroedinger equation for a quantum harmonic oscillator
A numerical method, which is used extensively to obtain graphical solutions of first and second-order differential equations and which has been applied to the Schroedinger equation and used to plot the ground state wavefunction for the hydrogen atom by students, is here utilised to obtain the wavefunctions of the quantum harmonic oscillator. This approach provides a more sophisticated view of harmonic oscillator wavefunctions than does the normal teaching method and in particular illustrates that physically well behaved solutions of the time-dependent Schroedinger equation occur only for discrete values of the total energy, providing students with a worthwhile extension of work on hydrogen.

Harmonic-oscillator pattern arising from an algebraic approach to chiral symmetry
Buccella, F; Savoy, C A
1972-01-01
The Weinberg equation for the (mass)/sup 2/ operator (Q/sub 5//sup +/, (Q/sub 5//sup +/, m/sup 2/))=0, between meson states, is saturated in a perturbative approach. The generator Z of the mixing operators is completely established as Z=(W*M)/sub z/, where W is the W-spin operator and M is the co-ordinate of the three-dimensional harmonic oscillator. In a perturbative expansion of the (mass)/sup 2/ operator, the lowest term consists of two parts, the harmonic-oscillator energy and a spin-orbit coupling of the form (-1)/sup L+1/(L.S+/sup 1///sub 2 /). The resulting (mass)/sup 2/ consists of families of equispaced linearly rising trajectories. (11 refs).
Coherent dynamics of a flux qubit coupled to a harmonic oscillator.
Chiorescu, I; Bertet, P; Semba, K; Nakamura, Y; Harmans, C J P M; Mooij, J E
2004-09-01
In the emerging field of quantum computation and quantum information, superconducting devices are promising candidates for the implementation of solid-state quantum bits (qubits). Single-qubit operations, direct coupling between two qubits and the realization of a quantum gate have been reported. However, complex manipulation of entangled states-such as the coupling of a two-level system to a quantum harmonic oscillator, as demonstrated in ion/atom-trap experiments and cavity quantum electrodynamics-has yet to be achieved for superconducting devices. Here we demonstrate entanglement between a superconducting flux qubit (a two-level system) and a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID). The latter provides the measurement system for detecting the quantum states; it is also an effective inductance that, in parallel with an external shunt capacitance, acts as a harmonic oscillator. We achieve generation and control of the entangled state by performing microwave spectroscopy and detecting the resultant Rabi oscillations of the coupled system. PMID:15356624
On the Bandgap quantum coupler and the harmonic oscillator interacting with a reservoir
Quijas, P C G
2007-01-01
In order to be able to study dissipation, the interaction between a single system and their environment was introduced in quantum mechanics. Master and quantum Langeving equations was derived and, also, decoherence was studied using this approach. One of the most used model in this field of research is a single harmonic oscillator interacting with an infinite number of harmonic oscillators. In this work we analytically solve, with the evolution operator method, the Schrodinger equation for this model in the case of resonance. Also we address a different aspect of the quantum computing with linear optics. That is, we propose the linear bandgap quantum coupler, in the cases N=2 and N=3, to generate a new phase operator $U_{dp}^{\\pi} $ working on the two and three qubits basis like an alternative realization of a quantum phase gate.

Full Text Available Stochastic electrodynamics (SED predicts a Gaussian probability distribution for a classical harmonic oscillator in the vacuum field. This probability distribution is identical to that of the ground state quantum harmonic oscillator. Thus, the Heisenberg minimum uncertainty relation is recovered in SED. To understand the dynamics that give rise to the uncertainty relation and the Gaussian probability distribution, we perform a numerical simulation and follow the motion of the oscillator. The dynamical information obtained through the simulation provides insight to the connection between the classic double-peak probability distribution and the Gaussian probability distribution. A main objective for SED research is to establish to what extent the results of quantum mechanics can be obtained. The present simulation method can be applied to other physical systems, and it may assist in evaluating the validity range of SED.
The Klauder-Daubechies Construction of the Phase Space Path Integral and the Harmonic Oscillator
Govaerts, Jan; Bwayi, Calvin Matondo; Mattelaer, Olivier
2009-01-01
The canonical operator quantisation formulation corresponding to the Klauder-Daubechies construction of the phase space path integral is considered. This formulation is explicitly applied and solved in the case of the harmonic oscillator, thereby illustrating in a manner complementary to Klauder and Daubechies' original work some of the promising features offered by their construction of a quantum dynamics. The Klauder-Daubechies functional integral involves a regularisation...
The complex quantum harmonic oscillator: A model for the fractional quantum Hall effect
Arbab, A I
2012-01-01
The recently introduced model of a complex (two dimensional) quantum harmonic oscillator is found to account for the observed Fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE). The sequences of the observed FQHE conductivity and charge are explained. The two sequences are found to express a quantity and its complex conjugated partner. The oscillator is found to have two degenerates states, $\\psi_n$, with angular momenta $\\pm n\\,\\hbar$., where $h = 2\\pi \\hbar $ is the Planck's constant.
Truncated harmonic oscillator and Painlevé IV and V equations
Fernández C, David J.; Morales-Salgado, V. S.
2015-06-01
Quantum systems described by second and third order polynomial Heisenberg algebras are obtained applying supersymmetric quantum mechanics to the harmonic oscillator with an infinite potential barrier. These systems are linked with the Painlevé IV and V equations, respectively, thus several solutions of these non-linear second-order differential equations will be found, along with a chain of Bäcklund transformations connecting such solutions.
A non-orthogonal harmonic-oscillator basis for three-body problems
A set of harmonic-oscillator states suitable for the representation of the wave function of the bound states of a system of three identical particles, is presented. As an illustration of the possibilities of the states defined in this paper, they are applied in a variational determination of the lowest symmetric S state of 12C, in the model of three structureless α particles interacting through the Coulomb force plus a phenomenological two-body force.

Corrections to the Born-Oppenheimer approximation for a harmonic oscillator
We derive simple expressions for the energy corrections to the Born-Oppenheimer approximation valid for a harmonic oscillator. We apply these corrections to the electronic and rotational ground state of H2+ and show that the diabatic energy corrections are linearly dependent on the vibrational quantum numbers as seen in recent variational calculations [D.

The optimal performance of an irreversible quantum Carnot refrigerator with working medium consisting of many non-interacting harmonic oscillators is investigated in this paper. The quantum refrigerator cycle is composed of two isothermal processes and two irreversible adiabatic processes, and the irreversibilities of heat resistance, internal friction and bypass heat leakage are considered. By using the quantum master equation, semi-group approach and finite time thermodynamics (FTT), this p...
Solution to the Master Equation of a Free Damped Harmonic Oscillator with Linear Driving
杨洁; 逯怀新; 赵博; 赵梅生; 张永德
2003-01-01
We use the Lie algebra representation theory for superoperators to solve the master equation for a harmonic oscillator with a linear driving term in a squeezed thermal reservoir. By using the quantum displacement transformation and squeeze transformation, we show that the master equation has an su(1, 1) Lie algebra structure,with which we obtain the explicit solution to the master equation. A simple but typical example is given to illustrate our method.
Crypto-Harmonic Oscillator in Higher Dimensions: Classical and Quantum Aspects

We study complexified Harmonic Oscillator models in two and three dimensions. Our work is a generalization of the work of Smilga \\cite{sm} who initiated the study of these Crypto-gauge invariant models that can be related to $PT$-symmetric models. We show that rotational symmetry in higher spatial dimensions naturally introduces more constraints, (in contrast to \\cite{sm} where one deals with a single constraint), with a much richer constraint structure.

The system of oscillator interacting with vacuum is considered as a problem of random motion of quantum reactive harmonic oscillator (QRHO). It is formulated in terms of a wave functional regarded as complex probability process in the extended space. This wave functional obeys some stochastic differential equation (SDE). Based on the nonlinear Langevin type SDE of second order, introduced in the functional space R{W(t)}, the variables in original equation are separated. The general measure in...
Velocity quantization approach of the one-dimensional dissipative harmonic oscillator
Lopez, Gustavo; Lopez, Pablo
2005-01-01
Given a constant of motion for the one-dimensional harmonic oscillator with linear dissipation in the velocity, the problem to get the Hamiltonian for this system is pointed out, and the quantization up to second order in the perturbation approach is used to determine the modification on the eigenvalues when dissipation is taken into consideration. This quantization is realized using the constant of motion instead of the Hamiltonian.
Born-Jordan and Weyl quantizations of the 2D anisotropic harmonic oscillator
Rastelli, Giovanni
2016-01-01
We apply the Born-Jordan and Weyl quantization formulas for polynomials in canonical coordinates to the constants of motion of some examples of the superintegrable 2D anisotropic harmonic oscillator. Our aim is to study the behaviour of the algebra of the constants of motion after the different quantization procedures. In the examples considered, we have that the Weyl formula always preserves the original superintegrable structure of the system, while the Born-Jordan formula, when producing d...
Equivalence of the Calogero-Sutherland Model to Free Harmonic Oscillators
Gurappa, N.; Panigrahi, Prasanta K.
1997-01-01
A similarity transformation is constructed through which a system of particles interacting with inverse-square two-body and harmonic potentials in one dimension, can be mapped identically, to a set of free harmonic oscillators. This equivalence provides a straightforward method to find the complete set of eigenfunctions, the exact constants of motion and a linear $W_{1+\\infty}$ algebra associated with this model. It is also demonstrated that a large class of models with long-range interaction...
Lissajous curves and semiclassical theory: The two-dimensional harmonic oscillator
Doll, Roland; Ingold, Gert-Ludwig
2006-01-01
The semiclassical treatment of the two-dimensional harmonic oscillator provides an instructive example of the relation between classical motion and the quantum mechanical energy spectrum. We extend previous work on the anisotropic oscillator with incommensurate frequencies and the isotropic oscillator to the case with commensurate frequencies for which the Lissajous curves appear as classical periodic orbits. Because of the three different scenarios depending on the ratio of its frequencies, ...
The harmonic oscillator on Riemannian and Lorentzian configuration spaces of constant curvature
Cariñena, José F; Santander, Mariano
2007-01-01
The harmonic oscillator as a distinguished dynamical system can be defined not only on the Euclidean plane but also on the sphere and on the hyperbolic plane, and more generally on any configuration space with constant curvature and with a metric of any signature, either Riemannian (definite positive) or Lorentzian (indefinite). In this paper we study the main properties of these `curved' harmonic oscillators simultaneously on any such configuration space, using a Cayley-Klein (CK) type approach, with two free parameters $\\ki, \\kii$ which altogether correspond to the possible values for curvature and signature type: the generic Riemannian and Lorentzian spaces of constant curvature (sphere ${\\bf S}^2$, hyperbolic plane ${\\bf H}^2$, AntiDeSitter sphere ${\\bf AdS}^{\\unomasuno}$ and DeSitter sphere ${\\bf dS}^{\\unomasuno}$) appear in this family, with the Euclidean and Minkowski spaces as flat limits. We solve the equations of motion for the `curved' harmonic oscillator and obtain explicit expressions for the orb...
Quantization in terms of symplectic groups: The harmonic oscillator as a generic example
The conventional quantization of the harmonic oscillator in terms of operators Q and P can be implemented with the help of irreducible unitary representations of the Heisenberg-Weyl group which acts transitively and effectively on the simply connected classical phase space Sq,p ≅ R2. In the description of the harmonic oscillator in terms of angle and action variables φ and I the associated phase space Sφ,I corresponds to the multiply connected punctured plane R2 - {0}, on which the 3-dimensional symplectic group Sp(2, R) acts transitively, leaving the origin invariant. As this group contains the compact subgroup U(1) it has infinitely many covering groups. In the here relevant irreducible unitary representations (positive discrete series) the self-adjoint generator Ko of U(l) represents the classical action variable I. It has the possible spectra n + k, n = 0,1,...; k > 0, where k depends on the covering group. This implies different possible spectra for the action variable Hamiltonian hωK0 of the harmonic oscillator. On the other hand, expressing the operators Q and P (non-linearly) in terms of the three generators K0 etc. of Sp(2, R) leads to the usual framework. Possible physical (experimental) implications and generalizations to higher dimensions are discussed briefly.
Protective measurement of the wave function of a single squeezed harmonic-oscillator state
Alter, Orly; Yamamoto, Yoshihisa
1996-05-01
A scheme for the "protective measurement" [Phys. Rev. A 47, 4616 (1993)] of the wave function of a squeezed harmonic-oscillator state is described. This protective measurement is shown to be equivalent to a measurement of an ensemble of states. The protective measurement, therefore, allows for a definition of the quantum wave function on a single system. Yet, this equivalency also suggests that both measurement schemes account for the epistemological meaning of the wave function only. The protective measurement requires a full a priori knowledge of the measured state. The intermediate cases, in which only partial a priori information is given, are also discussed.
We show that the supersymmetric radial ladder operators of the three-dimensional isotropic harmonic oscillator are contained in the spherical components of the creation and annihilation operators of the system. Also, we show that the constants of motion of the problem, written in terms of these spherical components, lead us to second-order radial operators. Further, we show that these operators change the orbital angular momentum quantum number by two units and are equal to those obtained by the Infeld-Hull factorization method

We suggest one variant of generalization of the Hurwitz transformation by adding seven extra variables that allow an inverse transformation to be obtained.

The explicit form of the potential vectors and all the commutation relations of the algebra are given./.

A one-dimensional nonlinear harmonic oscillator is studied in the context of generalized coherent states. We develop a perturbative framework to compute the eigenvalues and eigenstates for the quantum nonlinear oscillator and construct the generalized coherent states based on Gazeau-Klauder formalism. We analyze their statistical properties by means of Mandel parameter and second order correlation function. Our analysis reveals that the constructed coherent states exhibit super-Poissonian statistics. Moreover, it is shown that the coherent states mimic the phenomena of quantum revivals and fractional revivals during their time evolution. The validity of our results has been discussed in terms of various parametric bounds imposed by our computational scheme.

The harmonic oscillator in pseudo euclidean space is studied. A straightforward procedure reveals that although such a system may have negative energy, it is stable. In the quantized theory the vacuum state has to be suitably defined and then the zero-point energy corresponding to a positive-signature component is canceled by the one corresponding to a negative-signature component. This principle is then applied to a system of scalar fields. The metric in the space of fields is assumed to hav...
Molecular Solid EOS based on Quasi-Harmonic Oscillator approximation for phonons
Menikoff, Ralph [Los Alamos National Lab. (LANL), Los Alamos, NM (United States)
2014-09-02
A complete equation of state (EOS) for a molecular solid is derived utilizing a Helmholtz free energy. Assuming that the solid is nonconducting, phonon excitations dominate the specific heat. Phonons are approximated as independent quasi-harmonic oscillators with vibrational frequencies depending on the specific volume. The model is suitable for calibrating an EOS based on isothermal compression data and infrared/Raman spectroscopy data from high pressure measurements utilizing a diamond anvil cell. In contrast to a Mie-Gruneisen EOS developed for an atomic solid, the specific heat and Gruneisen coefficient depend on both density and temperature.
Fractal Scaling Models of Resonant Oscillations in Chain Systems of Harmonic Oscillators
Müller H.
2009-04-01
Full Text Available Logarithmic scaling invariance is a wide distributed natural phenomenon and was proved in the distributions of physical properties of various processes — in high en- ergy physics, chemistry, seismicity, biology, geology and technology. Based on the Gantmacher-Krein continued fraction method the present paper introduces fractal scal- ing models of resonant oscillations in chain systems of harmonic oscillators. These models generate logarithmic scaling spectra. The introduced models are not based on any statements about the nature of the link or interaction between the elements of the oscillating system. Therefore the model statements are quite generally, what opens a wide field of possible applications.
Transient energy excitation in shortcuts to adiabaticity for the time dependent harmonic oscillator
Chen, Xi
2010-01-01
There is recently a surge of interest to cut down the time it takes to change the state of a quantum system adiabatically. We study for the time-dependent harmonic oscillator the transient energy excitation in speed-up processes designed to reproduce the initial populations at some predetermined final frequency and time, providing lower bounds and examples. Implications for the limits imposed to the process times and for the principle of unattainability of the absolute zero, in a single expansion or in quantum refrigerator cycles, are drawn.
A Schroedinger eigenvalue problem is solved for the 2D quantum simple harmonic oscillator using a finite element discretization of real space within which elements are adaptively spatially refined. We compare two competing methods of adaptively discretizing the real-space grid on which computations are performed without modifying the standard polynomial basis-set traditionally used in finite element interpolations; namely, (i) an application of the Kelly error estimator, and (ii) a refinement based on the local potential level. When the performance of these methods are compared to standard uniform global refinement, we find that they significantly improve the total time spent in the eigensolver. (general)
Radiative decays of vector mesons in the relativistic harmonic oscillator model
Govorkov, A.B.; Drenska, S.B.
1977-10-01
Radiative M1 transitions both of ordinary vector mesons ..omega.., rho/sup 0/, K/sup 0/*, and also of the new J/psi meson into pseudoscalar mesons ..pi../sup 0/, eta, eta', and K/sup 0/ are discussed in terms of the relativistic model of a four-dimensional harmonic oscillator. The parameters of the oscillator were determined from the experimental data on the decay widths of vector mesons into a lepton pair. For the J/psi meson the relativistic effects lead to an appreciable additional suppression of radiative transitions.
Spectroscopy of mesons in the QCD-inspired potential model with harmonic oscillator approximation
The spectrum of pseudoscalar, scalar, vector and axial-vector mesons are investigated in the frame of QCD-inspired potential model with harmonic oscillator approximation. Numerical solutions of the Bethe-Salpeter (BS) equation with the using of continuous analogy of Newton's method (CANM) have been obtained. It was shown that solutions of BS equation in harmonic approximation at quantity level describes observed spectrum of mesons and their radial- and orbital-excited states. The contrary 'progonka' (driving) method for numerical solution of the BS equation was briefly described. (author). 9 refs.; 4 tabs

We compare the Gram-Schmidt and covariant phase-space-basis-vector descriptions for three time-reversible harmonic oscillator problems, in two, three, and four phase-space dimensions respectively. The two-dimensional problem can be solved analytically. The three-dimensional and four-dimensional problems studied here are simultaneously chaotic, time-reversible, and dissipative. Our treatment is intended to be pedagogical, for use in an updated version of our book on Time Reversibility, Computer Simulation, and Chaos. Comments are very welcome.
Two-Variable Hermite Function as Quantum Entanglement of Harmonic Oscillator's Wave Functions

2007-01-01
We reveal that the two-variable Hermite function hm,n, which is the generalized Bargmann representation of the two-mode Fock state, involves quantum entanglement of harmonic oscillator's wave functions.The Schmidt decomposition of hm,n is derived. It also turns out that hm,n can be generated by windowed Fourier transform of the single-variable Hermite functions. As an application, the wave function of the two-variable Hermite polynomial state S(r)Hm,n(μa1+, μa2+)|00〉, which is the minimum uncertainty state for sum squeezing, in 〈η| representation is calculated.
Regular phase operator and SU(1,1) coherent states of the harmonic oscillator

A new solution is proposed to the long-standing problem of describing the quantum phase of a harmonic oscillator. In terms of an'exponential phase operator', defined by a new 'polar decomposition' of the quantized amplitude of the oscillator, a regular phase operator is constructed in the Hilbert-Fock space as a strongly convergent power series. It is shown that the eigenstates of the new 'exponential operators are SU(1,1) coherent states in the Holstein-Primakoff realization. In terms of the...

Generalized Hopf Fibration and Geometric SO(3) Reduction of the 4DOF Harmonic Oscillator
van der Meer, J. C.; Crespo, F.; Ferrer, S.
2016-04-01
It is shown that the generalized Hopf map ℍ × ℍ → ℍ × ℝ × ℝ quaternion formulation can be interpreted as an SO(3) orbit map for a symplectic SO(3) action. As a consequence the generalized Hopf fibration S7 → S4 appears in the SO(3) geometric symplectic reduction of the 4DOF isotropic harmonic oscillator. Furthermore it is shown how the Hopf fibration and associated twistor fibration play a role in the geometry of the Kepler problem and the rigid body problem.

We determine the energy eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the harmonic oscillator where the coordinates and momenta are assumed to obey the modified commutation relations [(x) over cap (i),(p) over cap (j)]=i (h) over bar[(1+beta(p) over cap (2))delta(ij)+beta(')(p) over cap (i)(p) over cap (j)]. These commutation relations are motivated by the fact that they lead to the minimal length uncertainty relations which appear in perturbative string theory. Our solutions illustrate how certain featu...
The Harmonic Oscillator in the Classical Limit of a Minimal-Length Scenario
Quintela, T S; Nogueira, J A
2015-01-01
In this work we explicitly solve the problem of the harmonic oscillator in the classical limit of a minimal-length scenario. We show that (i) the motion equation of the oscillator is not linear anymore because the presence of a minimal length introduces an anarmonic term and (ii) its motion is described by a Jacobi sine elliptic function. Therefore the motion is still periodic with the new period depending on the minimal length. This result is very important since it can be used to probe the Planck-scale physics. We show applications of our results in spectroscopy and gravity.
We present a general, asymptotical solution for the discretized harmonic oscillator. The corresponding Schroedinger equation is canonically conjugate to the Mathieu differential equation, the Schroedinger equation of the quantum pendulum. Thus, in addition to giving an explicit solution for the Hamiltonian of an isolated Josephon junction or a superconducting single-electron transistor (SSET), we obtain an asymptotical representation of Mathieu functions. We solve the discretized harmonic oscillator by transforming the infinite-dimensional matrix-eigenvalue problem into an infinite set of algebraic equations which are later shown to be satisfied by the obtained solution. The proposed ansatz defines a new class of generalized Hermite polynomials which are explicit functions of the coupling parameter and tend to ordinary Hermite polynomials in the limit of vanishing coupling constant. The polynomials become orthogonal as parts of the eigenvectors of a Hermitian matrix and, consequently, the exponential part of the solution can not be excluded. We have conjectured the general structure of the solution, both with respect to the quantum number and the order of the expansion. An explicit proof is given for the three leading orders of the asymptotical solution and we sketch a proof for the asymptotical convergence of eigenvectors with respect to norm. From a more practical point of view, we can estimate the required effort for improving the known solution and the accuracy of the eigenvectors. The applied method can be generalized in order to accommodate several variables

Semi-leptonic electroweak interactions in nuclei - such as \\beta decay, \\mu capture, charged- and neutral-current neutrino reactions, and electron scattering - are described by a set of multipole operators carrying definite parity and angular momentum, obtained by projection from the underlying nuclear charge and three-current operators. If these nuclear operators are approximated by their one-body forms and expanded in the nucleon velocity through order |\\vec{p}|/M, where \\vec{p} and M are the nucleon momentum and mass, a set of seven multipole operators is obtained. Nuclear structure calculations are often performed in a basis of Slater determinants formed from harmonic oscillator orbitals, a choice that allows translational invariance to be preserved. Harmonic-oscillator single-particle matrix elements of the multipole operators can be evaluated analytically and expressed in terms of finite polynomials in q^2, where q is the magnitude of the three-momentum transfer. While results for such matrix elements a...

Based on a Hamiltonian description we present a rigorous derivation of the transient state work fluctuation theorem and the Jarzynski equality for a classical harmonic oscillator linearly coupled to a harmonic heat bath, which is dragged by an external agent. Coupling with the bath makes the dynamics dissipative. Since we do not assume anything about the spectral nature of the harmonic bath the derivation is not restricted only to the Ohmic bath, rather it is more general, for a non-Ohmic bath. We also derive expressions of the average work done and the variance of the work done in terms of the two-time correlation function of the fluctuations of the position of the harmonic oscillator. In the case of an Ohmic bath, we use these relations to evaluate the average work done and the variance of the work done analytically and verify the transient state work fluctuation theorem quantitatively. Actually these relations have far-reaching consequences. They can be used to numerically evaluate the average work done and the variance of the work done in the case of a non-Ohmic bath when analytical evaluation is not possible.
Radiative decay widths are calculated for the radiative decay processes observed experimentally in the charmonium system. The model uses a Bethe-Salpeter equation with a static kernel and harmonic oscillator potentials to model the c-anti c system. Each decay width is calculated for 21 different choices of the c-quark mass. The potential used was a linear combination of a vector coupled and a scalar coupled harmonic oscillator potential. The quark mass and the scalar to vector coupling ratio were determined by trying to fit simultaneously the psi'(3685) - psi(3095) mass difference, the psi(3095) → e+ + e-decay width and the 3P/sub J/ mass splittings. A single choice of the quark mass and scalar to vector coupling ratio could not simultaneously fit all these constraints. The best fit to these constraints occurred when the quark mass was 5.5 and the scalar to vector coupling ratio parameter was -0.16. The decay width calculations are shown graphically for values of the quark mass from 0.00 to 16 GeV. The decay widths were calculated two different ways: (1) using the matrix elements of the quark momentum; (2) using the matrix elements of the quark position. Most of the published calculations use method (2). The widths computed by methods (1) and (2) are quite different for all masses and all transitions implying that the usual method (2) give incorrect results, and the fits with experimental data are fortuitous

The stochastic dynamics of the damped harmonic oscillator in a heat bath is simulated with an algorithm that is exact for time steps of arbitrary size. Exact analytical results are given for correlation functions and power spectra in the form they acquire when computed from experimental time-lapse recordings. Three applications are discussed: (i) Effects of finite sampling-rate and -time, described exactly here, are similar for other stochastic dynamical systems-e.g. motile micro-organisms and their time-lapse recorded trajectories. (ii) The same statistics is satisfied by any experimental system to the extent it is interpreted as a damped harmonic oscillator at finite temperature-such as an AFM cantilever. (iii) Three other models of fundamental interest are limiting cases of the damped harmonic oscillator at finite temperature; it consequently bridges their differences and describes effects of finite sampling rate and sampling time for these models as well. Finally, we give a brief discussion of nondimensio...
Revised calculation of four-particle harmonic-oscillator transformation brackets matrix
Mickevičius, S.; Germanas, D.; Kalinauskas, R. K.
2013-02-01
In this article we present a new, considerably enhanced and more rapid method for calculation of the matrix of four-particle harmonic-oscillator transformation brackets (4HOB). The new method is an improved version of 4HOB matrix calculations which facilitates the matrix calculation by finding the eigenvectors of the 4HOB matrix explicitly. Using this idea the new Fortran code for fast and 4HOB matrix calculation is presented. The calculation time decreases more than a few hundred times for large matrices. As many problems of nuclear and hadron physics structure are modeled on the harmonic oscillator (HO) basis our presented method can be useful for large-scale nuclear structure and many-particle identical fermion systems calculations.

We investigate the dynamics of a damped harmonic oscillator with delayed feedback near zero eigenvalue singularity. We perform a linearized stability analysis and multiple bifurcations of the zero solution of the system near zero eigenvalue singularity. Taking the time delay as the bifurcation parameter, the presence of steady-state bifurcation, Bogdanov-Takens bifurcation, triple zero, and Hopf-zero singularities is demonstrated. In the case when the system has a simple zero eigenvalue, center manifold reduction and normal form theory are used to investigate the stability and the types of steady-state bifurcation. The stability of the zero solution of the system near the simple zero eigenvalue singularity is completely solved. PMID:19123623
The type III Hermite Xm exceptional orthogonal polynomial family is generalized to a double-indexed one Xm1,m2 (with m1 even and m2 odd such that m2 > m1) and the corresponding rational extensions of the harmonic oscillator are constructed by using second-order supersymmetric quantum mechanics. The new polynomials are proved to be expressible in terms of mixed products of Hermite and pseudo-Hermite ones, while some of the associated potentials are linked with rational solutions of the Painlevé IV equation. A novel set of ladder operators for the extended oscillators is also built and shown to satisfy a polynomial Heisenberg algebra of order m2 − m1 + 1, which may alternatively be interpreted in terms of a special type of (m2 − m1 + 2)th-order shape invariance property.

Full Text Available We apply a Feynmans technique for calculation of a canonical density matrix of a single particle under harmonic oscillator asymmetric potential and solving the Bloch equation of the statistical mechanics system. The density matrix (P^u and kinetic energy per unit length (τ^L can be directly evaluated from the solving solutions. From the evaluation, it was found that both of the density matrix and kinetic energy per unit length depended on the parameter of the value of asymmetric potential (λ, the value of axes-shift potential (g, and temperature (T. Comparison of the Helmholtz free energy was derived by the Feynmans technique and the path-integral method. The results illustrated are slightly different.
Infrared and ultraviolet cutoffs in variational calculations with a harmonic oscillator basis
Coon, Sidney A
2013-01-01
I abstract from a recent publication [1] the motivations for, analysis in and conclusions of a study of the ultraviolet and infrared momentum regulators induced by the necessary truncation of the model spaces formed by a variational trial wave function. This trial function is built systematically from a complete set of many-body basis states based upon three-dimensional harmonic oscillator (HO) functions. Each model space is defined by a truncation of the expansion characterized by a counting number (N) and by the intrinsic scale ($\\hbar\\omega$) of the HO basis. Extending both the uv cutoff to infinity and the ir cutoff to zero is prescribed for a converged calculation. In [1] we established practical procedures which utilize these regulators to obtain the extrapolated result from sequences of calculations with model spaces. Finally, I update this subject by mentioning recent work on our extrapolation prescriptions which have appeared since the submission of [1]. The numerical example chosen for this contribu...

In quiescent H-mode (QH) regime, the edge harmonic oscillations (EHO) play an important role in avoiding the transient ELM power fluxes by providing benign and continuous edge particle transport. A detailed theoretical, experimental and modeling comparison has been made of low-n (n peeling mode properties of the ideal MHD code ELITE. The numerical investigations indicate that the low-n EHO-like solutions from M3D-C1 are destabilized by the toroidal rotational shear while high-n modes are stabilized. This effect is independent of the rotation direction, suggesting that the low-n EHO can be destabilized in principle with rotation in both directions. These modeling results are consistent with experimental observations of the EHO and support the proposed theory of the EHO as a rotational shear driven kink/peeling mode.
Inhomogeneity of the phase space of the damped harmonic oscillator under Levy noise
Cao, Zhan; Luo, Hong-Gang; 10.1103/PhysRevE.85.042101
2012-01-01
The damped harmonic oscillator under symmetric L\\'{e}vy white noise shows inhomogeneous phase space, which is in contrast to the homogeneous one of the same oscillator under the Gaussian white noise, as shown in a recent paper [I. M. Sokolov, W. Ebeling, and B. Dybiec, Phys. Rev. E \\textbf{83}, 041118 (2011)]. The inhomogeneity of the phase space shows certain correlation between the coordinate and the velocity of the damped oscillator under symmetric L\\'{e}vy white noise. In the present work we further explore the physical origin of these distinguished features and find that it is due to the combination of the damped effect and heavy tail of the noise. We demonstrate directly this in the reduced coordinate $\\tilde{x}$ versus velocity $\\tilde{v}$ plots and identify the physics of the anti-association of the coordinate and velocity.
Study of Bose-Einstein condensation in a harmonic oscillator potential
Bose-Einstein condensation is an accumulation of population in the ground state of a system of bosons as the temperature of the system is reduced below a critical temperature. This condensation is entirely a consequence of the quantum statistics of the Bose-Einstein distribution. We consider this statistics for our calculation. The ground state occupation numbers of a fixed number of bosons in an isotropic threedimensional harmonic oscillator potential above and below the critical temperature are found numerically by a method that was done previously [1]. This potential more closely approximates the conditions of the experiments performed to date on alkali atoms. Energy, heat capacity and chemical potential are found numerically. Finally all the results are compared with analytical calculations

Full Text Available The optimal performance of an irreversible quantum Carnot refrigerator with working medium consisting of many non-interacting harmonic oscillators is investigated in this paper. The quantum refrigerator cycle is composed of two isothermal processes and two irreversible adiabatic processes, and the irreversibilities of heat resistance, internal friction and bypass heat leakage are considered. By using the quantum master equation, semi-group approach and finite time thermodynamics (FTT, this paper derives the cooling load and coefficient of performance (COP of the quantum refrigeration cycle and provides detailed numerical examples. At high temperature limit, the cooling load versus COP characteristic curves are plotted, and effects of internal friction and bypass heat leakage on the optimal performance of the quantum refrigerator are discussed. Three special cases, i.e., endoreversible, frictionless and without bypass heat leakage, are discussed in brief.

The cycle model of a quantum refrigeration cycle working with many non-interacting harmonic oscillators and consisting of two isothermal and two constant-frequency processes is established. Based on the quantum master equation and semi-group approach, the general performance of the cycle is investigated. Expressions for some important performance parameters, such as the coefficient of performance, cooling rate, power input, and rate of the entropy production, are derived. Several interesting cases are discussed and, especially, the optimal performance of the cycle at high temperatures is discussed in detail. Some important characteristic curves of the cycle, such as the cooling rate versus coefficient of performance curves, the power input versus coefficient of performance curves, the cooling rate versus power input curves, and so on, are presented. The maximum cooling rate and the corresponding coefficient of performance are calculated. Other optimal performances are also analysed. The results obtained here ...

Suzuki, Y; Ogawa, Y; Varga, K
1996-01-01
We present a new and simple method of calculating the occupation probability of the number of total harmonic-oscillator quanta for a microscopic cluster-model wave function. Examples of applications are given to the recent calculations including \\alpha+n+n-model for ^6He, \\alpha+t+n+n-model for ^9Li, and \\alpha+\\alpha+n-model for ^9Be as well as the classical calculations of \\alpha+p+n-model for ^6Li and \\alpha+\\alpha+\\alpha-model for ^{12}C. The analysis is found to be useful for quantifying the amount of excitations across the major shell as well as the degree of clustering. The origin of the antistretching effect is discussed.
A new method for continuum discretization in continuum-discretized coupled-channels calculations is proposed. The method is based on an analytic local-scale transformation of the harmonic-oscillator wave functions proposed for other purposes in a recent work [Karatagladis et al., Phys. Rev. C 71, 064601 (2005)]. The new approach is compared with the standard method of continuum discretization in terms of energy bins for the reactions d+58Ni at 80 MeV, 6Li+40Ca at 156 MeV, and 6He+208Pb at 22 MeV and 240 MeV/nucleon. In all cases very good agreement between both approaches is found.
Harmonic oscillator representation in the theory of scattering and nuclear reactions

1995-01-01
The following questions, concerning the application of the harmonic oscillator representation (HOR) in the theory of scattering and reactions, are discussed: the formulation of the scattering theory in HOR; exact solutions of the free motion Schroedinger equation in HOR; separable expansion of the short range potentials and the calculation of the phase shifts; 'isolated states' as generalization of the Wigner-von Neumann bound states embedded in continuum; a nuclear coupled channel problem in HOR; and the description of true three body scattering in HOR. As an illustration the soft dipole mode in the (11)Li nucleus is considered in a frame of the (9)Li+n+n cluster model taking into account of three body continuum effects.
Crypto-harmonic oscillator in higher dimensions: classical and quantum aspects
We study complexified harmonic oscillator models in two and three dimensions. Our work is a generalization of the work of Smilga (2007 Preprint 0706.4064 (J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. at press)) who initiated the study of these Crypto-gauge invariant models that can be related to PT-symmetric models. We show that rotational symmetry in higher spatial dimensions naturally introduces more constraints (in contrast to Smilga (2007 Preprint 0706.4064 (J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. at press)) where one deals with a single constraint) with a much richer constraint structure. Some common as well as distinct features in the study of the same Crypto-oscillator in different dimensions are revealed. We also quantize the two dimensional Crypto-oscillator
Electroproduction of φ-meson from proton within relativistic harmonic oscillator model
We analyze electroproduction of φ-meson from a proton within a uud-s anti s cluster model as a probe of the strangeness content of the proton. Our consideration is based on the relativistic harmonic oscillator quark model which takes into account the Lorentz-contraction effect of the hadron wave functions. We show that the knockout mechanisms are comparable to the vector meson-dominance model of diffractive production if only (1-2)% strange quark admixture is assumed. The uud- and s anti s-knockout cross sections have a qualitatively different dependence on the four-momentum transfer squared to the proton and may be distinguished experimentally. 19 refs., 5 figs

This paper considers the sampled-data synchronisation problems of coupled harmonic oscillators with communication and input delays subject to controller failure. A synchronisation protocol is proposed for such oscillator systems over directed network topology, and then some general algebraic criteria on exponential convergence for the proposed protocol are established. The main features of the present investigation include: (1) both the communication and input delays are simultaneously addressed, and the directed network topology is firstly considered and (2) the effects of time delays on synchronisation performance are theoretically and numerically investigated. It is shown that in the absence of communication delays, coupled harmonic oscillators can achieve synchronisation oscillatory motion. Whereas if communication delays are nonzero at infinite multiple sampled-data instants, its synchronisation (or consensus) state is zero. This conclusion can be used as an effective control strategy to stabilise coupled harmonic oscillators in practical applications. Furthermore, it is interesting to find that increasing either communication or input delays will enhance the synchronisation performance of coupled harmonic oscillators. Subsequently, numerical examples illustrate and visualise theoretical results.

The quantization of a constant of motion for the harmonic oscillator with a time-explicitly depending external force is carried out. This quantization approach is compared with the normal Hamiltonian quantization approach. Numerical results show that there are qualitative and quantitative differences for both approaches, suggesting that the quantization of this constant of motion may be verified experimentally.
Quantization and instability of the damped harmonic oscillator subject to a time-dependent force
We consider the one-dimensional motion of a particle immersed in a potential field U(x) under the influence of a frictional (dissipative) force linear in velocity (-γx) and a time-dependent external force (K(t)). The dissipative system subject to these forces is discussed by introducing the extended Bateman's system, which is described by the Lagrangian: L=mxy-U(x+1/2 y)+U(x-1/2 y)+(γ)/2 (xy-yx)-xK(t)+yK(t), which leads to the familiar classical equations of motion for the dissipative (open) system. The equation for a variable y is the time-reversed of the x motion. We discuss the extended Bateman dual Lagrangian and Hamiltonian by setting U(x±y/2)=1/2 k(x±y/2)2 specifically for a dual extended damped-amplified harmonic oscillator subject to the time-dependent external force. We show the method of quantizing such dissipative systems, namely the canonical quantization of the extended Bateman's Hamiltonian H. The Heisenberg equations of motion utilizing the quantized Hamiltonian H surely lead to the equations of motion for the dissipative dynamical quantum systems, which are the quantum analog of the corresponding classical systems. To discuss the stability of the quantum dissipative system due to the influence of an external force K(t) and the dissipative force, we derived a formula for transition amplitudes of the dissipative system with the help of the perturbation analysis. The formula is specifically applied for a damped-amplified harmonic oscillator subject to the impulsive force. This formula is used to study the influence of dissipation such as the instability due to the dissipative force and/or the applied impulsive force. - Highlights: → A method of quantizing dissipative systems is presented. → In order to obtain the method, we apply Bateman's dual system approach. → A formula for a transition amplitude is derived. → We use the formula to study the instability of the dissipative systems.

We derive the energy levels associated with the even-parity wavefunctions of the harmonic oscillator with an additional delta-function potential at the origin. Our results bring to the attention of students a non-trivial and analytical example of a modification of the usual harmonic oscillator potential, with emphasis on the modification of the boundary conditions at the origin. This problem calls the attention of the students to an inaccurate statement in quantum mechanics textbooks often found in the context of the solution of the harmonic oscillator problem.
Thermodynamical analysis of a quantum heat engine based on harmonic oscillators
Insinga, Andrea; Andresen, Bjarne; Salamon, Peter
2016-07-01
Many models of heat engines have been studied with the tools of finite-time thermodynamics and an ensemble of independent quantum systems as the working fluid. Because of their convenient analytical properties, harmonic oscillators are the most frequently used example of a quantum system. We analyze different thermodynamical aspects with the final aim of the optimization of the performance of the engine in terms of the mechanical power provided during a finite-time Otto cycle. The heat exchange mechanism between the working fluid and the thermal reservoirs is provided by the Lindblad formalism. We describe an analytical method to find the limit cycle and give conditions for a stable limit cycle to exist. We explore the power production landscape as the duration of the four branches of the cycle are varied for short times, intermediate times, and special frictionless times. For short times we find a periodic structure with atolls of purely dissipative operation surrounding islands of divergent behavior where, rather than tending to a limit cycle, the working fluid accumulates more and more energy. For frictionless times the periodic structure is gone and we come very close to the global optimal operation. The global optimum is found and interestingly comes with a particular value of the cycle time.
Floquet topological system based on frequency-modulated classical coupled harmonic oscillators
Salerno, Grazia; Ozawa, Tomoki; Price, Hannah M.; Carusotto, Iacopo
2016-02-01
We theoretically propose how to observe topological effects in a generic classical system of coupled harmonic oscillators, such as classical pendula or lumped-element electric circuits, whose oscillation frequency is modulated fast in time. Making use of Floquet theory in the high-frequency limit, we identify a regime in which the system is accurately described by a Harper-Hofstadter model where the synthetic magnetic field can be externally tuned via the phase of the frequency modulation of the different oscillators. We illustrate how the topologically protected chiral edge states, as well as the Hofstadter butterfly of bulk bands, can be observed in the driven-dissipative steady state under a monochromatic drive. In analogy with the integer quantum Hall effect, we show how the topological Chern numbers of the bands can be extracted from the mean transverse shift of the steady-state oscillation amplitude distribution. Finally, we discuss the regime where the analogy with the Harper-Hofstadter model breaks down.
Detecting topological entanglement entropy in a lattice of quantum harmonic oscillators
Demarie, Tommaso F.; Linjordet, Trond; Menicucci, Nicolas C.; Brennen, Gavin K.
2014-08-01
The Kitaev surface code model is the most studied example of a topologically ordered phase and typically involves four-spin interactions on a two-dimensional surface. A universal signature of this phase is topological entanglement entropy (TEE), but due to low signal to noise, it is extremely difficult to observe in these systems, and one usually resorts to measuring anyonic statistics of excitations or non-local string operators to reveal the order. We describe a continuous-variable analog to the surface code using quantum harmonic oscillators on a two-dimensional lattice, which has the distinctive property of needing only two-body nearest-neighbor interactions for its creation. Though such a model is gapless, it satisfies an area law and the ground state can be simply prepared by measurements on a finitely squeezed and gapped two-dimensional cluster-state without topological order. Asymptotically, the continuous variable surface code TEE grows linearly with the squeezing parameter and a recently discovered non-local quantity, the topological logarithmic negativity, behaves analogously. We also show that the mixed-state generalization of the TEE, the topological mutual information, is robust to some forms of state preparation error and can be detected simply using single-mode quadrature measurements. Finally, we discuss scalable implementation of these methods using optical and circuit-QED technology.
𝒩 = 2 supersymmetric harmonic oscillator: Basic brackets without canonical conjugate momenta
Srinivas, N.; Shukla, A.; Malik, R. P.
2015-09-01
We exploit the ideas of spin-statistics theorem, normal-ordering and the key concepts behind the symmetry principles to derive the canonical (anti)commutators for the case of a one (0 + 1)-dimensional (1D) 𝒩 = 2 supersymmetric (SUSY) harmonic oscillator (HO) without taking the help of the mathematical definition of canonical conjugate momenta with respect to the bosonic and fermionic variables of this toy model for the Hodge theory (where the continuous and discrete symmetries of the theory provide the physical realizations of the de Rham cohomological operators of differential geometry). In our present endeavor, it is the full set of continuous symmetries and their corresponding generators that lead to the derivation of basic (anti)commutators amongst the creation and annihilation operators that appear in the normal mode expansions of the dynamical fermionic and bosonic variables of our present 𝒩 = 2 SUSY theory of a HO. These basic brackets are in complete agreement with such kind of brackets that are derived from the standard canonical method of quantization scheme.
Electroweak scattering of the nucleon in the covariant harmonic oscillator model
The covariant harmonic oscillator model is shown to provide a theoretical framework capable of combining the principles of special relativity and those of quantum mechanics, and which can also be used to describe observed hadronic phenomenon. The results of this current for elastic form factors for nucleons are reviewed. It is then used to calculate matrix elements involved in the electroproduction of resonances. These results are compared to similar previous results, in which different types of wave functions are used and to data, and resonably good agreement is found. Compton scattering of the proton is also studied. Functionally, the calculated cross section agrees well with experimental results. However, the magnitude of the calculated curve is smaller than the data. Given the success of the calculated electromagnetic form factors, it is natural to ask if the weak interaction can be treated in a similar manner. The minimal coupling of the Weinberg-Salam model is used to obtain the weak current of the nucleon in a way similar to that of the electromagnetic case. From this, the weak form factors for the quasi-elastic process nun → μ-p are found and compared to the standard dipole fits. The cross section is calculated and compared with recent data. Both these comparisons are shown to be favorable. Finally, the weak currents are used to calculate matrix elements of the weak production of the Δ(1232) resonance. The cross section for this reaction is found to agree with experimental results

The optimal performance of a quantum refrigeration cycle working with harmonic oscillators
The cycle model of a quantum refrigeration cycle working with many non-interacting harmonic oscillators and consisting of two isothermal and two constant-frequency processes is established. Based on the quantum master equation and semi-group approach, the general performance of the cycle is investigated. Expressions for some important performance parameters, such as the coefficient of performance, cooling rate, power input, and rate of the entropy production, are derived. Several interesting cases are discussed and, especially, the optimal performance of the cycle at high temperatures is discussed in detail. Some important characteristic curves of the cycle, such as the cooling rate versus coefficient of performance curves, the power input versus coefficient of performance curves, the cooling rate versus power input curves, and so on, are presented. The maximum cooling rate and the corresponding coefficient of performance are calculated. Other optimal performances are also analysed. The results obtained here are compared with those of an Ericsson or Stirling refrigeration cycle using an ideal gas as the working substance. Finally, the optimal performance of a harmonic quantum Carnot refrigeration cycle at high temperatures is derived easily
A particle produced in a hard collision can lose energy through bremsstrahlung. It has long been of interest to calculate the effect on bremsstrahlung if the particle is produced inside a finite-size QCD medium such as a quark-gluon plasma. For the case of very high-energy particles traveling through the background of a weakly coupled quark-gluon plasma, it is known how to reduce this problem to an equivalent problem in nonrelativistic two-dimensional quantum mechanics. Analytic solutions, however, have always resorted to further approximations. One is a harmonic oscillator approximation to the corresponding quantum mechanics problem, which is appropriate for sufficiently thick media. Another is to formally treat the particle as having only a single significant scattering from the plasma (known as the N=1 term of the opacity expansion), which is appropriate for sufficiently thin media. In a broad range of intermediate cases, these two very different approximations give surprisingly similar but slightly differing results if one works to leading logarithmic order in the particle energy, and there has been confusion about the range of validity of each approximation. In this paper, I sort out in detail the parametric range of validity of these two approximations at leading logarithmic order. For simplicity, I study the problem for small αs and large logarithms but αslog<<1.
Dynamics of ‘quantumness’ measures in the decohering harmonic oscillator

2016-08-01
We studied the behaviour under decoherence of four different measures of the distance between quantum states and classical states for the harmonic oscillator coupled to a linear Markovian bath. Three of these are relative measures, using different definitions of the distance between the given quantum states and the set of all classical states. The fourth measure is an absolute one, the negative volume of the Wigner function of the state. All four measures are found to agree, in general, with each other. When applied to the eigenstates $|n\\ rangle$, all four measures behave non-trivially as a function of time during dynamical decoherence. First, we find that the first set of classical states to which the set of eigenstate evolves is (by all measures used) closest to the initial set. That is, all the states decohere to classicality along the ‘shortest path’. Finding this closest classical set of states helps improve the behaviour of all the relative distance measures. Second, at each point in time before becoming classical, all measures have a state $n*$ with maximal quantum-classical distance; the value $n*$ decreases as a function of time. Finally, we explore the dynamics of these non-classicality measures for more general states.

This article is the first in a series of two presenting the scale relativistic approach to non-differentiability in mechanics and its relation to quantum mechanics. In this first paper, we present the definition of a complex "scale-covariant time-differential operator" and show that mechanics of non-differentiable paths is implemented in the same way as classical mechanics but with the replacement of the time derivative and velocity with the time-differential operator and associated complex velocity. With this, the generalized form of Newton's fundamental relation of dynamics is shown to take the form of a Langevin equation in the case of stationary motion characterized by a null average classical velocity. The numerical integration of the Langevin equation in the case of a harmonic oscillator reveals the same statistics as the stationary solutions of the Schrodinger equation for the same problem. This motivates the second paper which makes the relation to quantum mechanics explicit by discussing the axioms o...

This paper is concerned with quantum harmonic oscillators consisting of a quantum plant and a directly coupled coherent quantum observer. We employ discounted quadratic performance criteria in the form of exponentially weighted time averages of second-order moments of the system variables. A coherent quantum filtering (CQF) problem is formulated as the minimization of the discounted mean square of an estimation error, with which the dynamic variables of the observer approximate those of the p...
The solutions of the Schrödinger equation with quantum mechanical gravitational potential plus harmonic oscillator potential have been presented using the parametric Nikiforov—Uvarov method. The bound state energy eigen values and the corresponding un-normalized eigen functions are obtained in terms of Laguerre polynomials. Also a special case of the potential has been considered and its energy eigen values are obtained. (general)
We present a space-time transformation which changes a quadratic action into a free-particle action.This transformation is used to derive the propagator beyond caustics for a quadratic Lagrangian from the propagator for a free particle. The propagator is in turn derived by the Feynman path integral method. Also, the wavefunction for the damped harmonic oscillator is obtained using an inverse quadratic potential

The two-dimensional solution of the spinless Klein–Gordon (KG) equation for scalar–vector harmonic oscillator potentials with and without the presence of constant perpendicular magnetic and Aharonov–Bohm (AB) flux fields is studied within the asymptotic function analysis and Nikiforov–Uvarov (NU) method. The exact energy eigenvalues and normalized wave functions are analytically obtained in terms of potential parameters, magnetic field strength, AB flux field and magnetic quantum number. The ...
The detailed way in which duality between sum of exclusive states and the free quark model description operates in semileptonic total decay widths, is analysed. It is made very explicit by the use of the non relativistic harmonic oscillator quark model in the SV limit, and a simple interaction current with the lepton pair. In particular, the Voloshin sum rule is found to eliminate the mismatches of order δm/mb2. (authors)

We prove that the 1- d quantum harmonic oscillator is stable under spatially localized, time quasi-periodic perturbations on a set of Diophantine frequencies of positive measure. This proves a conjecture raised by Enss-Veselic in their 1983 paper [EV] in the general quasi-periodic setting. The motivation of the present paper also comes from construction of quasi-periodic solutions for the corresponding nonlinear equation.

An extension of the classical orthogonal functions invariant to the quantum domain is presented. This invariant is expressed in terms of the Hamiltonian. Unitary transformations which involve the auxiliary function of this quantum invariant are used to solve the time-dependent Schroedinger equation for a harmonic oscillator with time-dependent parameter. The solution thus obtained is in agreement with the results derived using other methods which invoke the Lewis invariant in their procedures.

The de Broglie-Bohm quantum trajectories are found in analytically closed forms for the eigenstates and the coherent state of the Lewis-Riesenfeld (LR) invariant of a time-dependent harmonic oscillator. It is also shown that an eigenstate (a coherent state) of an invariant can be interpreted as squeezed states obtained by squeezing an eigenstate (a coherent state) of another invariant. This provides ways for a whole description of squeezed states.

In this work we introduce a generalization of the Jauch and Rohrlich quantum Stokes operators when the arrival direction from the source is unknown a priori. We define the generalized Stokes operators as the Jordan-Schwinger map of a triplet of harmonic oscillators with the Gell-Mann and Ne'eman matrices of the SU(3) symmetry group. We show that the elements of the Jordan-Schwinger map are the constants of motion of the three-dimensional isotropic harmonic oscillator. Also, we show that the generalized Stokes operators together with the Gell-Mann and Ne'eman matrices may be used to expand the polarization matrix. By taking the expectation value of the Stokes operators in a three-mode coherent state of the electromagnetic field, we obtain the corresponding generalized classical Stokes parameters. Finally, by means of the constants of motion of the classical 3D isotropic harmonic oscillator we describe the geometrical properties of the polarization ellipse

Using the asymptotic iteration and wave function ansatz method, we present exact solutions of the Klein-Gordon equation for the quark-antiquark interaction and harmonic oscillator potential in the case of the position-dependent mass.
The harmonic oscillator approach to the bound states of few-body systems is developed and the lower-energy states are introduced as basis vectors and mixed with a part of harmonic oscillator vectors to calculate the binding energy. The lower energy levels of 3-α system and Λ9Be are presented and compared with experiments or other calculations. The results are satisfactory
A new look at the quantum mechanics of the harmonic oscillator
At first sight it is probably hard to believe that something new can be said about the harmonic oscillator (HO). But that is so indeed: Classically the Harmonic Oscillator (HO) is the generic example for the use of angle and action variables φ element of R mod 2π and I>0. However, the transformation q√(2I)cos φ, p=-√(2I)sin φ is only locally symplectic and singular for (q,p)=(0,0). Globally the phase space {(q,p)} has the topological structure of the plane R2, whereas the phase space {(φ,I)} corresponds globally to the punctured plane R2-(0,0) or to a simple cone S1 x R+ with the tip deleted. This makes a qualitative difference as to the quantum theory of the two phase spaces: The quantizing canonical group for the plane R2 consists of the (centrally extended) translations generated by the Poisson Lie algebra basis {q,p,1}, whereas the corresponding canonical group of the phase space {(φ,I)} is the group SO↑(1,2)=Sp(2,R)/Z2, where Sp(2,R) is the sympletic group of the plane, with the generating Poisson Lie algebra basis {h0=I,h1=Icosφ,h2=-Isinφ} which provides also the basic ''observables'' on {(φ, I)}. In the quantum mechanics of the (φ,I)-model of the HO the three hj correspond to self-adjoint generators Kj, j=0,1,2, of irreducible unitary representations from the positive discrete series of the group SO↑(1,2) or one of its infinitely many covering groups, the representations parametrized by the Bargmann index k>0. This index k determines the ground state energy Ek,n=0=ℎωk of the (φ,I)-Hamiltonian H(anti K)=ℎωK0. For an m-fold covering the lowest possible value for k is k=1/m, which can be made arbitrarily small by choosing m accordingly. This is not in contraction to the usual approach in terms of the operators Q and P which are now expressed as functions of the Kj, but keep their usual properties. The richer structure of the Kj quantum model of the HO is ''erased'' when passing to the simpler Q,P model. This more refined approach to the

At first sight it is probably hard to believe that something new can be said about the harmonic oscillator (HO). But that is so indeed: Classically the Harmonic Oscillator (HO) is the generic example for the use of angle and action variables {phi} element of R mod 2{pi} and I>0. However, the transformation q= {radical}(2I)cos {phi}, p=-{radical}(2I)sin {phi} is only locally symplectic and singular for (q,p)=(0,0). Globally the phase space {l_brace}(q,p){r_brace} has the topological structure of the plane R{sup 2}, whereas the phase space {l_brace}({phi},I){r_brace} corresponds globally to the punctured plane R{sup 2}-(0,0) or to a simple cone S{sup 1} x R{sup +} with the tip deleted. This makes a qualitative difference as to the quantum theory of the two phase spaces: The quantizing canonical group for the plane R{sup 2} consists of the (centrally extended) translations generated by the Poisson Lie algebra basis {l_brace}q,p,1{r_brace}, whereas the corresponding canonical group of the phase space {l_brace}({phi},I){r_brace} is the group SO{up_arrow}(1,2)=Sp(2,R)/Z{sub 2}, where Sp(2,R) is the sympletic group of the plane, with the generating Poisson Lie algebra basis {l_brace}h{sub 0}=I,h{sub 1}=Icos{phi},h{sub 2}=-Isin{phi}{r_brace} which provides also the basic ''observables'' on {l_brace}({phi}, I){r_brace}. In the quantum mechanics of the ({phi},I)-model of the HO the three h{sub j} correspond to self-adjoint generators K{sub j}, j=0,1,2, of irreducible unitary representations from the positive discrete series of the group SO{up_arrow}(1,2) or one of its infinitely many covering groups, the representations parametrized by the Bargmann index k>0. This index k determines the ground state energy E{sub k,n=0}={Dirac_h}{omega}k of the ({phi},I)-Hamiltonian H(anti K)={Dirac_h}{omega}K{sub 0}. For an m-fold covering the lowest possible value for k is k=1/m, which can be made arbitrarily small by choosing m accordingly. This is not in contraction to

The nonlinear oscillations of a Duffing-harmonic oscillator are investigated by an approximated method based on the 'cubication' of the initial nonlinear differential equation. In this cubication method the restoring force is expanded in Chebyshev polynomials and the original nonlinear differential equation is approximated by a Duffing equation in which the coefficients for the linear and cubic terms depend on the initial amplitude, A. The replacement of the original nonlinear equation by an approximate Duffing equation allows us to obtain explicit approximate formulas for the frequency and the solution as a function of the complete elliptic integral of the first kind and the Jacobi elliptic function, respectively. These explicit formulas are valid for all values of the initial amplitude and we conclude this cubication method works very well for the whole range of initial amplitudes. Excellent agreement of the approximate frequencies and periodic solutions with the exact ones is demonstrated and discussed and the relative error for the approximate frequency is as low as 0.071%. Unlike other approximate methods applied to this oscillator, which are not capable to reproduce exactly the behaviour of the approximate frequency when A tends to zero, the cubication method used in this Letter predicts exactly the behaviour of the approximate frequency not only when A tends to infinity, but also when A tends to zero. Finally, a closed-form expression for the approximate frequency is obtained in terms of elementary functions. To do this, the relationship between the complete elliptic integral of the first kind and the arithmetic-geometric mean as well as Legendre's formula to approximately obtain this mean are used.

The information entropy of the harmonic oscillator potential V(x)=1/2λx2 in both position and momentum spaces can be expressed in terms of the so-called ``entropy of Hermite polynomials,'' i.e., the quantity Sn(H):= -∫-∞+∞H2n(x)log H2n(x) e-x2dx. These polynomials are instances of the polynomials orthogonal with respect to the Freud weights w(x)=exp(-||x||m), m≳0. Here, a very precise and general result of the entropy of Freud polynomials recently established by Aptekarev et al. [J. Math. Phys. 35, 4423-4428 (1994)], specialized to the Hermite kernel (case m=2), leads to an important refined asymptotic expression for the information entropies of very excited states (i.e., for large n) in both position and momentum spaces, to be denoted by Sρ and Sγ, respectively. Briefly, it is shown that, for large values of n, Sρ+1/2logλ≂log(π√2n/e)+o(1) and Sγ-1/2log λ≂log(π√2n/e)+o(1), so that Sρ+Sγ≂log(2π2n/e2)+o(1) in agreement with the generalized indetermination relation of Byalinicki-Birula and Mycielski [Commun. Math. Phys. 44, 129-132 (1975)]. Finally, the rate of convergence of these two information entropies is numerically analyzed. In addition, using a Rakhmanov result, we describe a totally new proof of the leading term of the entropy of Freud polynomials which, naturally, is just a weak version of the aforementioned general result.
Cartesian tensors an introduction
Temple, G
2004-01-01
This undergraduate text provides an introduction to the theory of Cartesian tensors, defining tensors as multilinear functions of direction, and simplifying many theorems in a manner that lends unity to the subject. The author notes the importance of the analysis of the structure of tensors in terms of spectral sets of projection operators as part of the very substance of quantum theory. He therefore provides an elementary discussion of the subject, in addition to a view of isotropic tensors and spinor analysis within the confines of Euclidean space. The text concludes with an examination of t
