Recently, there has been progress in developing interior–boundary conditions (IBCs) as a technique of avoiding the problem of ultraviolet divergence in non-relativistic quantum field theories while treating space as a continuum and electrons as point particles. An IBC can be expressed in the particle-position representation of a Fock vector $$\psi $$ψ as a condition on the values of $$\psi $$ψ on the set of collision configurations, and the corresponding Hamiltonian is defined on a domain of… Expand
