To address this issue, SEMATECH's FEP researchers have employed the concept of 'lattice relaxation' around a defect; when the defect traps a charge (electron), the neighboring nuclei "feel" its Coulomb potential and shift their position slightly to accommodate this additional force - that is, they 'relax' around the defect.
For the purpose of finding Gamow function, in area near x=a we can choose linear approximation for Coulomb potential, such that
Kleinert's work includes flexible manipulation of coordinates that led to his evaluation of the path integral for the Coulomb potential.
Here the ordinary Coulomb potential, 1/r, holds and the associated 1/[p.
