Integrated Raman Intensity in 4He

  • Frank J. Pinski
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 35)


This seminar will explain a ground state calculation of the integrated Raman intensity in 4He. This integrated intensity is related to a static correlation function which can be calculated from a new integral equation. The emphasis of this talk is placed on deriving this integral equation. The resulting correlation function is then used to calculate the integrated Raman intensity. In contrast to previous calculation1,2, the excluded volume condition3 is satisfied. The calculated intensity is 50% larger than the experimental result.4
