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 paper we propose experimental searches for such deviations in the two-photon spectra from the decay of the neutral pion in the process ? ? ? + ? ? ?0 and in the annihilation of the positron from nuclear ? decay. © The Author(s) 2019.

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…

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…

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…

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…

Working within the framework of perturbation theory, we show that the axial-vector vertex in spinor electrodynamics has anomalous properties which disagree with those found by the formal manipulation…
