Abstract

Analytical expressions for tail parameters were given, which determined near-threshold properties for an attractive potential tail consisting of a sum of a 1/r4- and a 1/r5-term. The influence of the potential tail on near-threshold properties could be derived by matching exact solutions of the Schrödinger equations to WKB wavefunctions. Results allowed quantitative estimates of how deviations from a homogenous potential tail affect near-threshold properties of the system.
