Abstract

Using path integral techniques we demonstrate how three quantum‐mechanical phenomena—alpha decay, nonexponential decay, and resonant scattering—can be treated. This procedure is an algebraic one yet reproduces the usual results obtained via solution of the Schrödinger equation via WKB methods.
