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.

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
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
Search for the correction term to Fermi’s golden rule in positron annihilation
In the positron–electron annihilation process, finite deviations from the standard calculation based on Fermi’s golden rule are suggested in recent theoretical work. This paper describes an


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
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
Anomalous radiative transitions
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

A systematic study of low-energy neutrino-two-photon interactions to lowest order and differences due to whether neutrinos are Dirac particles or Majorana particles are discussed.
Axial vector vertex in spinor electrodynamics
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
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
On the Annihilation Radiation of Positrons
The annihilation of positrons may occur either (1) when the positron is in motion, or (2) when it has already been stopped. In the first case, which will be discussed in this paper, either one or two
Surprises in Theoretical Physics
Problems in theoretical physics often lead to paradoxical answers; yet closer reasoning and a more complete analysis invariably lead to the resolution of the paradox and to a deeper understanding of
Scattering theory of waves and particles
Much progress has been made in scattering theory since the publication of the first edition of this book fifteen years ago, and it is time to update it. Needless to say, it was impossible to
