Abstract:

The analytic properties of a matrix element of a general operator between a bound state and a scattering state are studied in the framework of Schrodinger theory. It is shown that the singularities of such a matrix element are easily inferred from those of the Born approximation. Using the fact that the possible singularities which are not contained in the Born approximation are located far apart from those included in the lowest approximation, a simple formula is derived which allows one to obtain the rescattering correction to the Born approximation using explicitly the phase shifts.
