Electromagnetic Sum Rules and Response Functions from the Symmetry-Adapted No-Core Shell Model

Recent developments in ab initio nuclear structure have provided us with a variety of many-body methods capable of describing nuclei into the medium-mass region of the chart of nuclides. One of

Relativistic photoionization with elliptically polarized laser fields in the ultraviolet region

We study relativistic effects in photoionization of a hydrogen atom exposed to an intense laser pulse of general ellipticity. The frequency of the laser pulse resides in the ultraviolet region. To

Electrostatic Capacity of a Metallic Cylinder: Effect of the Moment Method Discretization Process on the Performances of the Krylov Subspace Techniques

A comparison was made among some Krylov subspace method-based procedures to solve Lmnαn=gm, showing the superiority of BcGStab, compared to the other procedures used, since even if the number of iterations increases significantly, the CPU-time decreases when the asymptotic behavior of all the procedures is in place.

Gauge invariant canonical symplectic algorithms for real-time lattice strong-field quantum electrodynamics

A class of high-order canonical symplectic structure-preserving geometric algorithms are developed for high-quality simulations of the quantized Dirac-Maxwell theory based strong-field quantum

Tunneling Time, Exit Time and Exit Momentum in Strong Field Tunnel Ionization

Tunnel ionization belongs to the fundamental processes of atomic physics. It is still an open question when does the electron tunnel ionize and how long is the duration of tunneling. In this work we

Virtual-detector approach to tunnel ionization and tunneling times

Tunneling times in atomic ionization are studied theoretically by a virtual detector approach. A virtual detector is a hypothetical device that allows one to monitor the wave function's density with


Based on matrix spectral problems associated with the real special orthogonal Lie algebra so(3,R), a Dirac-type equation is derived by virtue of the zero-curvature equation. Further, an N-fold



ALTDSE: An Arnoldi-Lanczos program to solve the time-dependent Schrödinger equation

Parallel solver for the time-dependent linear and nonlinear Schrödinger equation.

An approach in which the finite-element discrete variable representation (FEDVR) is combined with the real-space product (RSP) algorithm to generate an efficient and highly accurate method for the solution of the time-dependent linear and nonlinear Schrödinger equation is described.

Unitary quantum time evolution by iterative Lanczos reduction

A general unitary time evolution method for wave packets defined on a fixed L2 basis is developed. It is based on the Lanczos reduction of the full N×N Hamiltonian to a p‐dimensional subspace defined

The Lanczos algorithm with partial reorthogonalization

Partial reorthogonalization (PRO) is proposed as a new method for maintain- ing semiorthogonality among the Lanczos vectors and is applied to the solution of large symmetric systems of linear equations and results obtained compare favorably with the conjugate gradient method.

Solution of the Dirac equation for hydrogenlike systems exposed to intense electromagnetic pulses

During the last few decades, laser technology has gone through a series of revolutionary improvements. With light pulses in the sub-femtosecond regime now experimentally available, an explicit

ARPACK was used to solve eigenvalue problems arising in their FEM quantum well Kp model for strained layer super-lattices and researchers at University of Washington have used the code to investigate the eeects of the electric eld on InAs/GaSb and GaAs/Al x Ga 1?x quantum wells.
