Nonperturbative theory for the dispersion self-energy of atoms
We go beyond the approximate series expansions used in the dispersion theory of finite-size atoms. We demonstrate that a correct, and nonperturbative, theory dramatically alters the dispersion self
The static electric dipole polarizability of Rb
Accurate relativistic coupled-cluster studies with basis sets up to h-functions result in a static dipole polarizability of 9.11 au = 1.35 A3 for Rb+ . Relativistic effects are of the same size as
A study of finite-size and non-perturbative effects on the van der Waals and the Casimir-Polder forces
This licentiate thesis addresses two important aspects of the van der Waals and the Casimir-Polder ground-state and excited-state (resonance) interactions between two atoms or molecules. The first ...
A study of finite-size, non-perturbative and anisotropic effects on the Lifshitz-van der Waals forces and torque with material dielectric responses from first-principles calculations
The van der Waals and the Casimir-Lifshitz forces are forces of attraction that exist between neutral polarizable bodies due to quantum fluctuations. They can be repulsive depending on the material
Pairing in Finite Systems: Nuclei and Fullerenes
The role the exchange of phonons between pairs of fermions moving in time reversal states lying close to the Fermi energy on the superfluidity and on the superconductivity of atomic nuclei and
Theory of polar corrections to donor binding
We calculate the optical-phonon correction to the binding energy of electrons to donors in cubic materials. Previous theories calculated the Rydberg energy reduced by the effective mass and the
Molecular polarizability and atomic properties: Density functional approach
In our previous work [P. Itskowitz and M. L. Berkowitz, J. Phys. Chem. A 101, 5687 (1997)], we showed how in the framework of the density functional theory the energy of a molecule can be expressed
