Abstract

Simons has previously derived a simple formula for the linewidth Γ of a resonance state in the continuum from real stabilization graphs under the assumption that the energy curves vary almost linearly near the points of avoided crossing. This formula is now rederived without this restricting assumption under the condition that Γ is still small.
