Exact calculation of three-body contact interaction to second orderMar 28 2012For a system of fermions with a three-body contact interaction the second-order contributions to the energy per particle $\bar E(k_f)$ are calculated exactly. The three-particle scattering amplitude in the medium is derived in closed analytical form from ... More
Resummation of fermionic in-medium ladder diagrams to all ordersFeb 10 2011A system of fermions with a short-range interaction proportional to the scattering length $a$ is studied at finite density. At any order $a^n$, we evaluate the complete contributions to the energy per particle $\bar E(k_f)$ arising from combined (multiple) ... More
