We mathematically analyze a Hamiltonian Hτ(V,g) of a Dirac particle—a relativistic charged particle with spin 1/2—minimally coupled to the quantized radiation field, acting in the Hilbert space F≔[⊕4L2(R3)]⊗Frad, where Frad is the Fock space of the quantized radiation field in the Coulomb gauge, V is an external potential in which the Dirac particle moves, g is a photon-momentum cutoff function in the interaction between the Dirac particle and the quantized radiation field, and τ∈R is a… 

Heisenberg Operators of a Dirac Particle Interacting with the Quantum Radiation Field

Exponential Localization of Hydrogen-like Atoms in Relativistic Quantum Electrodynamics

We consider two different models of a hydrogenic atom in a quantized electromagnetic field that treat the electron relativistically. The first one is a no-pair model in the free picture, the second

The dressed nonrelativistic electron in a magnetic field

We consider a nonrelativistic electron interacting with a classical magnetic field pointing along the x3‐axis and with a quantized electromagnetic field. When the interaction between the electron and

Non-relativistic limit of a Dirac-Maxwell operator in relativistic quantum electrodynamics

The non-relativistic (scaling) limit of a particle-field Hamiltonian H, called a Dirac–Maxwell operator, in relativistic quantum electrodynamics is considered. It is proven that the non-relativistic

Extended State Space for describing renormalized Fock spaces in QFT

In quantum field theory (QFT) models, it often seems natural to use, instead of wave functions from Fock space, wave functions that are not square-integrable and have pre-factors involving divergent

This is the the second part of a series of two papers, which investigate spectral properties of Dirac operators with singular potentials. We will provide a spectral analysis of a relativistic one-

Dirac Operators Coupled to the Quantized Radiation Field: Essential Self-adjointness à la Chernoff

We study the Dirac operator D0 in an external potential V, coupled to a quantized radiation field with energy Hf and vector potential A. Our result is a Chernoff-type theorem, i.e., we prove, for the



The relativistic polaron without cutoffs

The (non-Lorentz covariant) system consisting of a relativistic scalar Boson field ϕ interacting with a single spinless particle (relativistic polaron) with kinetic energy function (m2+|p|2)1/2 is

The Dirac Equation

Ever since its invention in 1929 the Dirac equation has played a fundamental role in various areas of modern physics and mathematics. Its applications are so widespread that a description of all

On the energy spectrum of the hydrogen atom in a photon field. I

In 1930 Weisskopf and Wigner gave an account, based on the Maxwell–Schrodinger equations, of the natural spectral line broadening of radiation emitted by a hydrogen atom. Their calculations were

The polaron at large total momentum

Proves that for dimensions d=1, 2 the polaron (with general dispersion relation and couplings) has a unique ground state for any value of the total momentum (particle+Bose field). For d>or=3 and for

A relativistic wave equation for helium-like systems which gives energy levels correct to within α2 Ry is derived from quantum electrodynamics, care being taken in the handling of pair-production

Note on the Radiation Field of the electron

Previous methods of treating radiative corrections in non-stationary processes such as the scattering of an electron in an atomic field or the emission of a $\ensuremath{\beta}$-ray, by an expansion

Existence of Dressed One Electron States in a Class of Persistent Models

In this paper the dynamics of a class of simple models (so called persistent models) including Nelson's model is studied. These models describe conserved, non relativistic, scalar electrons
