Application of Huang-Yang pseudopotential to a few-body system



Huang and Yang replace a hard core of radius c by their pseudopotential (HYPP), which can be used in perturbation theory. I show that HYPP and boundary value perturbation theory give the same energy shift, to first order in c. I model a two-body potential as an oscillator potential (angular frequency ω) and a hard core. For an A-body system, the ratio of the first order energy correction to the unperturbed energy is 0.448 A3/4c a, where a = (M ω/2h)1/2.
