Abstract

We present a new consistent energy approach to calculation of the cross-section for the negative muon capture by an atom, based on the relativistic many-body perturbation (PT) theory. The calculation results for cross-section of the μcapture by He atom are listed. It is presented a generalized energy approach in the relativistic theory of discharge of a metastable nucleus with emission of γ quantum and further muon conversion, which initiates this discharge. The numerical calculation of the corresponding probabilities is firstly carried out for the scandium nucleus (A = 49, N = 21) with using the Dirac-Woods-Saxon model. The theoretical and experimental studying the muon-γ-nuclear interaction effects opens prospects for nuclear quantum optics, probing the structural features of a nucleus and muon spectroscopy in atomic and molecular physics.
