      In this issue, the article Validity of the quantum regression theorem for resonance fluorescence in a photonic crystal by G. Boedecker and C. Henkel (pp. 805–813) analyzes the correlation functions of a driven two-level system embedded in a photonic crystal. The image shows linear absorption spectra for different laser frequencies and is a modified version of Figure 2 in this article.

      Problem of time in quantum gravity (pages 757–786)

      E. Anderson

      Version of Record online: 22 OCT 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201200147

      The Problem of Time occurs because the ‘time’ of General Relativity and of ordinary Quantum Theory are mutually incompatible notions. This is problematic in trying to replace these two branches of physics with a single framework in situations in which the conditions of both apply, e.g. in black holes or in the very early universe.

      Spatial and temporal coherence effects in interference microscopy and full-field optical coherence tomography (pages 787–804)

      I. Abdulhalim

      Version of Record online: 17 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201200106

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      In this article the coherence effects in low-coherence optical microscopy are reviewed. As this technology is becoming increasingly publicized due to its importance in three-dimensional imaging, particularly of scattering biological media and optical metrology, the understanding of the fundamental physics behind it is essential. The interplay between longitudinal spatial coherence and temporal coherence and the effects associated with them are discussed.

    1. Validity of the quantum regression theorem for resonance fluorescence in a photonic crystal (pages 805–813)

      G. Boedecker and C. Henkel

      Version of Record online: 10 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201200135

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Correlation functions of a driven two-level system embedded in a photonic crystal are analyzed. The spectral density of the photonic bands near a gap makes this system non-Markovian. The equations of motion for two-time correlations are derived by two different methods, the quantum regression theorem and the fluctuation dissipation theorem, and found to be the same.

    2. Linear response theory of uniformly complex-scaled many-body systems (pages 814–821)

      D.L. Whitenack

      Version of Record online: 22 OCT 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201200062

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Linear response functions for a uniformly complex-scaled many-body system are derived. Differences between these functions and their Hermitian analogs are emphasized including additional poles at metastable excitations. Energy absorption is investigated and it is shown how a complex-scaled external perturbation and its complex-conjugate couples to the system's energy and lifetime.

    3. Bayesian approach to electron correlation in density functional theory (pages 822–825)

      R. Tsekov and G.N. Vayssilov

      Version of Record online: 23 JUL 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201200101

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The Bayesian conditional probability approach is applied to the wave function of a many-electron system and results in the appearance of a quantum vector potential in the DFT Schrödinger equation due to electron correlation, apart from the correlation energy term. An analysis of the effect of the correlation momentum on the electronic transitions suggested that the electron correlation increases the transition probability.

    4. A square-torsion modification of Einstein-Cartan theory (pages 826–839)

      S. Vignolo, L. Fabbri and C. Stornaiolo

      Version of Record online: 12 NOV 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201200183

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The present paper considers a theory of gravity in which not only curvature but also torsion is explicitly present in the Lagrangian, both with their own coupling constant. In particular, the couplings to Dirac fields and spin fluids are discussed: In the case of Dirac fields, it is discussed how the Dirac self-interactions depend on the coupling constant as a parameter that may even make these non-linearities manifest at subatomic scales.

    5. Role of 208Pb daughter nucleus and nuclear shell effects in trans-lead cluster radioactivity by emission of neon clusters from 218–236U isotopes (pages 840–849)

      G.S. Swamy and T.K. Umesh

      Version of Record online: 23 JUL 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201200064

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      In the present work, the cluster radioactivity of even A uranium isotopes (218–236U) with the emission of both alpha-like and non-alpha-like neon clusters (20,22,24,26,28Ne) was studied. The decimal logarithm of half-lives (expressed in seconds) were calculated by three different approaches based on the single line of Universal curve for alpha and cluster radioactive decay, the Universal Decay law and by considering a fission-like model in which the interacting nuclear potential barrier was taken to be the sum of Coulomb and proximity potentials respectively.

    6. The 7Li (n,γ)8Li radiative capture at astrophysical energies (pages 850–861)

      S.B. Dubovichenko and A.V. Dzhazairov-Kakhramanov

      Version of Record online: 19 NOV 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201200151

      The possibility to construct intercluster interaction potentials in continuous and discrete spectra is shown in one-channel cluster model based on the classification of orbital states according to Young schemes. These potentials usually contain Pauli forbidden states, and correctly describe elastic scattering phase shifts taking into account resonance behavior and main characteristic
