Sakurai and J. J. Napolitano, Modern Quantum Mechanics L. D. Landau and L. M. Lifshitz, Vol. III: Quantum Mechanics Non-Relativistic Theory Time-dependent perturbation theory. Berry phase 1. A charged one-dimensional harmonic oscillator, H = h a a + 1 / 2 , is subjected to a time-dependent electric field, E ( t ). Assuming that the oscillator was in the n-th quantum state at the distant past, t - , find the transition probability into the k-th state in first order perturbation theory in the distant future,...
