The main theorem asserts that ifH=Δ+gV is a Schrödinger Hamiltonian with short rangeV, φεL compact 2 (IR3), andR>0, then ‖exp(iHt S φ‖ L 2 (|x|<R)=O(t −1/2), ast→∞ where Π S is projection onto the orthogonal complement of the real eigenvectors ofH. For all but a discrete set ofg,O(t −1/2) may be replaced byO(t −3/2).
