On the Relation Between Scattering Phase and Bound States

Publication date1957

The relation between phase shifts and bound states proved by Levinson for spherical symmetric potential functions satisfying certain regularity conditions is generalized for arbitrary interactions. The regularity condition of Levinson is replaced by a condition for the behavior of the scattering state wave functions at infinite energy. The proof of the relation given here shows that it is a simple consequence of the orthogonality and completeness relation for the eigenfunctions of the total energy operator.
