No Time at the End of the Tunnel
Modern atto-second experiments seek to provide an insight into a long standing question: “how much time does a tunnelling particle spend in the barrier?” Traditionally, quantum theory relates this duration to the delay ...
An even simpler understanding of quantum weak values
We explain the properties and clarify the meaning of quantum weak values using only the basic notions of elementary quantum mechanics.
Reexamination of continuous fuzzy measurement on two-level systems
Imposing restrictions on the Feynman paths of the monitored system has in the past been proposed as a universal model-free approach to continuous quantum measurements. Here we revisit this proposition and demonstrate that ...
Complex angular momentum theory of state-to-state integral cross sections: Resonance effects in the $F + HD \to HF(v' = 3) + D$ reaction
State-to-state reactive integral cross sections (ICSs) are often affected by quantum mechanical resonances, especially near a reactive threshold. An ICS is usually obtained by summing partial waves at a given value of ...
Non-Markovian models of the growth of a polymer chain
Using simple exactly solvable models, we show that event-dependent time delays may lead to significant non-Poisson effects in the statistics of polymer chain growth. The results are confirmed by stochastic simulation of ...
Relative frequencies of constrained events in stochastic processes: An analytical approach
The stochastic simulation algorithm (SSA) and the corresponding Monte Carlo (MC) method are among the most common approaches for studying stochastic processes. They relies on knowledge of interevent probability density ...
Computer software for understanding resonances and resonance-related phenomena in chemical reactions
In numerical modelling of chemical reactions one calculates the scattering matrix for the required values of energy and angular momentum. Having done so, one still faces the non-trivial task of extracting detailed information ...
Numerical Regge pole analysis of resonance structures in elastic, inelastic and reactive state-to-state integral cross sections
We present a detailed description of a FORTRAN code for evaluation of the resonance contribution a Regge trajectory makes to the integral state-to-state cross section (ICS) within a specified range of energies. The ...
Impact of competitive processes on controlled radical polymerization
The kinetics of radical polymerization have been systematically studied for nearly a century and in general are well understood. However, in light of recent developments in controlled radical polymerization many kinetic ...
'Superluminal paradox' in wave packet propagation and its quantum mechanical resolution
We analyse in detail the reshaping mechanism leading to apparently 'superluminal' advancement of a wave packet traversing a classically forbidden region. In the coordinate representation, a barrier is shown to act as an ...
