Time-dependent approach to positron-hydrogen scattering

Wang, J.B., Riste, N., Midgley, S., Stelbovics, A.T. and Williams, J.F. (1999) Time-dependent approach to positron-hydrogen scattering. Australian Journal of Physics, 52 (3). pp. 595-602.

This paper examines the positron–hydrogen scattering process by numerically solving the time-dependent Schrödinger equation in the s-wave model. The overall behaviour of the system wavefunction as it propagates through the collision region is studied above the positronium formation threshold and is found to match expectations qualitatively.
