Unstable particles in a self-consistent field theory

  • M. Seetharaman
  • V. Srinivasan


We indicate how unstable particles can be introduced into the self-consistent field theory formulation of Umezawa where the equal-time commutation relations for Heisenberg fields are derived and not assumed. The Lee model is used to illustrate the results.
