Anomalous transitions involving photons derived by many-body interaction of the form, @µG µ , in the standard model are studied. This does not affect the equation of motion in the bulk, but makes wave functions modified, and causes the unusual transition characterized by the time-independent probability. In the transition probability at a time-interval T expressed generally in the form P = T 0 + P (d) , now with P (d) 6 0. The diffractive term P (d) has the origin in the overlap of waves of the…

New effect in wave-packet scatterings of quantum fields
In a transition amplitude of wave-packets, e.g., that of the Φ → φφ decay process, there are in and out time boundaries for the initial Φ and final φφ configurations, respectively, when the transition
Particle decay in Gaussian wave-packet formalism revisited
We derive the Fermi's golden rule in the Gaussian wave-packet formalism of quantum field theory, proposed by Ishikawa, Shimomura, and Tobita, for the particle decay within a finite time interval. We
Finite Size Corrections to the Excitation Energy Transfer in a Massless Scalar Interaction Model
We study the excitation energy transfer (EET) for a simple model in which a massless scalar particle is exchanged between two molecules. We show that a finite-size effect appears in EET by the
On experimental confirmation of the corrections to Fermi’s golden rule
Standard calculations by Fermi's golden rule involve approximations. These approximations could lead to deviations from the predictions of the standard model, as discussed in another paper. In this
Wave packets in QFT: Leading order width corrections to decay rates and clock behavior under Lorentz boosts
Decay rates in quantum field theory (QFT) are typically calculated assuming the particles are represented by momentum eigenstates (i.e. plane waves). However, strictly speaking, localized free
Scalar scattering amplitude in the Gaussian wave-packet formalism
We compute an $s$-channel $2\to2$ scalar scattering $\phi\phi\to\Phi\to\phi\phi$ in the Gaussian wave-packet formalism at the tree-level. We find that wave-packet effects, including shifts of the


The Theory of Positrons
The problem of the behavior of positrons and electrons in given external potentials, neglecting their mutual interaction, is analyzed by replacing the theory of holes by a reinterpretation of the
Neutrino Oscillations in Intermediate States. I Plane Waves
In this series of papers, we discuss neutrino oscillations in the framework of the quantum field theory. Considering the fact that a neutrino can be indirectly detected through collisions, we
Neutrino Oscillations in Intermediate States. II Wave Packets
We analyze oscillations of intermediate neutrinos in terms of the scattering of particles described by Gaussian wave packets. We study a scalar model as in a previous paper (I) but in realistic
Neutrino diffraction induced by many body interaction
The neutrino produced in the pion decay reveals a new diffraction phenomenon due to many-body interactions in an intermediate time region when wave functions of the parent and daughters overlap.
Finite-size corrections to Fermi's golden rule: I. Decay rates
A quantum mechanical wave of a finite size moves like a classical particle and shows a unique decay probability. Because the wave function evolves according to the Schr\"{o}dinger equation, it
The Quantum Theory of the Emission and Absorption of Radiation
The new quantum theory, based on the assumption that the dynamical variables do not obey the commutative law of multiplication, has by now been developed sufficiently to form a fairly complete theory
Generalized S-Matrix in Mixed Representation
We formulate a generalized scattering amplitude in which the momenta and positions of incoming particles and outgoing particles are specified. Ideal beams and ideal measuring instruments, for which
When the wavepacket is unnecessary
We point out that many wavepacket discussions for the coherence properties of particle beams are unnecessary since they deal with stationary sources; and when the problem is stationary, essentially
