Complex absorbing potential method for calculating scattering resonances

The HADES seminar on Tuesday, February 1 will be at 3:30 pm in Room 736.

Speaker: Haoren Xiong

Abstract: Complex absorbing potential (CAP) method, which is a computational technique for scattering resonances first used in physical chemistry. The method shows that resonances of the Hamiltonian $P$ are limits of eigenvalues of CAP-modified Hamiltonian $P – it|x|^2$ as $t \to 0+$. I will show that this method applies to exponentially decaying potential scattering, and many other things will be presented, including the Davies harmonic oscillator and the method of complex scaling.
