Scattering Hypervolume of Spin-Polarized Fermions

  title={Scattering Hypervolume of Spin-Polarized Fermions},
  author={Zipeng Wang and Shina Tan},
We analyze the collision of three identical spin-polarized fermions at zero collision energy, assuming arbitrary finite-range potentials, and define the corresponding three-body scattering hypervolume DF . The scattering hypervolume D was first defined for identical bosons in 2008 by one of us. It is the three-body analog of the two-body scattering length. We solve the three-body Schrödinger equation asymptotically when the three fermions are far apart or one pair and the third fermion are far… Expand
