HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT 8 PHYS852 Quantum Mechanics II, Spring 2009 New topics covered: Green’s functions, T-matrix . 1. The full Green’s function : A system with hamiltonian H has a Green’s function defined by G H ( E ) = ( E H + ) 1 For case H = H 0 + V , there is also a ‘background Green’s function’: G H 0 ( E ) = ( E H 0 + ) 1 What is the relationship between G H ( E ) and G H 0 ( E )? To answer this, start from the Schr¨odinger equation ( E H 0 V ) | ψ s ) = V | ψ 0 ) and operate on both sides with the full Green’s function G H ( E ). Then compare your result with the T-matrix definition | ψ s ) = G H 0 T H 0 ,V ( E ) | ψ 0 ) to show that G H ( E ) V = G H 0 ( E ) T H 0 ,V ( E ) . Insert the general solution T H 0 ,V ( E ) = (1 VG H 0 ( E )) 1 V and derive an expression for G H ( E ) in terms of G H 0 ( E ) and V . Now use the definition of the operator inverse to derive the expression (1 VG H 0 ( E )) 1 = 1 + T H 0 ,V ( E ) G H 0 ( E ) Plug this into your previous expression for G H ( E ) to show finally, that G H ( E ) = G H 0 ( E ) + G H 0 ( E ) T H 0 ,V ( E ) G H 0 ( E ) 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
