The difference between this proposed study and recent work of Takahashi based on Langevin equation for cluster deuterium is that we focus on solution of Schrodinger-Langevin equation [6,7] with PT-Symmetric periodic potential as we discussed in the preceding paper and its Gamow integral.
For the purpose of finding Gamow function, in area near x=a we can choose linear approximation for Coulomb potential, such that
In principle, the Gamow function can be derived as follows [11]
After Hubble's discovery of the cosmic expansion and the Big Bang hypothesis by Gamow, astronomical observations and associated theoretical work have resulted in a number of new points of view, as summarized in recent reviews such as those by Linde [1], Hogan, Kirshner and Suntzeff [2], Luminet, Starkman and Weeks [3], Turner [4], Perlmutter [5], Riess and Turner [6], Crease [7] and Linder and Perlmutter [8].
We also highlight its plausible implication to the calculation of Gamow integral for the (periodic) non-Coulomb potential.
Interestingly, Takahashi also described the Gamow integral of his STTBA model as follows [7]
In other words, the standard procedure to derive Gamow factor should also be revised [12].
in theory of static universe the introduction of cosmological constant proved to be incorrect and Einstein accepted the mistake later as quoted by Gamow [42].
