See Armitage (1989), Berry and Keating (1998, 1999), Keating (1993, 1999), and Sarnak (1999). … Quantum field theory often encounters formally divergent sums that need to be evaluated by a process of regularization: for example, the energy of the electromagnetic vacuum in a confined space (Casimir–Polder effect). …

  • 10: 9.16 Physical Applications
    Airy functions are applied in many branches of both classical and quantum physics. … The KdV equation and solitons have applications in many branches of physics, including plasma physics lattice dynamics, and quantum mechanics. … An example from quantum mechanics is given in Landau and Lifshitz (1965), in which the exact solution of the Schrödinger equation for the motion of a particle in a homogeneous external field is expressed in terms of Ai ( x ) . …This reference provides several examples of applications to problems in quantum mechanics in which Airy functions give uniform asymptotic approximations, valid in the neighborhood of a turning point. A study of the semiclassical description of quantum-mechanical scattering is given in Ford and Wheeler (1959a, b). …
