[en] Here we briefly outline main results of the Wave-Packet Continuum Discretization method. The formalism uses the complete continuum discretization scheme in terms of the momentum stationary wave-packet basis, which leads to formulation of the scattering problem on a lattice in the momentum space.
[en] To facilitate the search for isochrones when using complex-valued trajectory methods for quantum barrier scattering calculations, the structure and shape of isochrones in the complex plane were studied. Isochrone segments were categorized based on their distinguishing features, which are shared by each situation studied: High and low energy wave packets, scattering from both thick and thin Gaussian and Eckart barriers of varying height. The characteristic shape of the isochrone is a trifurcated system: Trajectories that transmit the barrier are launched from the lower branch (T), while the middle and upper branches form the segments for reflected trajectories (F and B). In addition, a model is presented for the curved section of the lower branch (from which transmitted trajectories are launched), and important features of the complex extension of the initial wave packet are identified
[en] We evaluate the distribution of waiting times between electrons emitted by a driven mesoscopic capacitor. Based on a wave packet approach we obtain analytic expressions for the electronic waiting time distribution and the joint distribution of subsequent waiting times. These semi-classical results are compared to a full quantum treatment based on Floquet scattering theory and good agreement is found in the appropriate parameter ranges. Our results provide an intuitive picture of the electronic emissions from the driven mesoscopic capacitor and may be tested in future experiments.
[en] In this paper, we introduce matrix-valued multiresolution analysis and orthogonal matrix-valued wavelets with arbitrary integer dilation factor m. A necessary and sufficient condition on the existence of orthogonal matrix-valued wavelets is derived by virtue of paraunitary vector filter bank theory. An algorithm for constructing compactly supported m-scale orthogonal matrix-valued wavelets is presented. The notion of orthogonal matrix-valued wavelet packets is proposed. Their properties are investigated by means of time-frequency method, operator theory and matrix theory. In particular, it is shown how to construct various orthonormal bases of space L2(R, Crxr) from these wavelet packets, and the orthogonal decomposition relation is also given
[en] Heisenberg's description of wave packet reduction, made in 1930, leads to physical and logical difficulties. To avoid these we must remember that probability functions lose their physical meaning when new information is grasped
[fr]Les difficultes physiques et logiques qui decoulent de la description de la reduction du paquet d'ondes, faite par W. HEISENBERG en 1930, peuvent tres facilement etre evitees. Il suffit d'avoir a l'esprit que la fonction de probabilite d'un evenement physique perd toute sa signification au moment ou on acquiert une information supplementaire
[en] Wave packet revivals and fractional revivals are studied by means of a measure of nonclassicality based on the Fisher information. In particular, we show that the spreading and the regeneration of initially Gaussian wave packets in a quantum bouncer and in the infinite square-well correspond, respectively, to high and low nonclassicality values. This result is in accordance with the physical expectations that at a quantum revival wave packets almost recover their initial shape and the classical motion revives temporarily afterward.
[en] Three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain simulations were performed to explore the excitation of surface plasmon resonances in long silver (Ag) nanowires. In particular, we show that it is possible to generate plasmonic wave packets that can propagate along the nanowire by exciting superpositions of surface plasmon resonances. By using an appropriately chirped pulse, it is possible to transiently achieve localization of the excitation at the distal end of the nanowire. Such designed coherent superpositions will allow realizing spatiotemporal control of plasmonic excitations for enhancing nonlinear responses in plasmonic 'circuits'.
[en] It is shown that in the framework of the weak turbulence theory, the autocorrelation and cascade time scales are always of the same order of magnitude. This means that, contrary to the general belief, any model of turbulence that implies a large number of collisions among wave packets for an efficient energy cascade (such as the Iroshnikov-Kraichnan model) is not compatible with the weak turbulence theory.
