T-matrix theory of positron annihilation on hydrogen

Ryzhikh, G.G.; Mitroy, J

Description

The transition amplitude for electron-positron annihilation during positron-hydrogen scattering is formulated in terms of the half-shell T-matrix elements obtained from a solution of the momentum space Lippmann-Schwinger equation. The derived expression is well defined at energies below the positronium (Ps) formation threshold. However, singularities in the transition amplitude exist at energies above the Ps-formation threshold. The annihilation parameter for positron-hydrogen scattering is...[Show more]
