The scattering T-matrix in configuration space
The talk describes a method to obtain the representation of the two-body T-matrix in configuration space, while textbooks describe the representation in momentum space. The method involves the solution of only integral equations. An example will be given for the interaction between two He atoms, and the effect of the strong repulsive core at short distances will be examined. The main main motivation of this work is that the two-body T-matrix in configuration space is an essential input into the solution of the three-body integral Faddeev equations in configuration space.
