interaction picture

[¦in·tə¦rak·shən ‚pik·chər]
(quantum mechanics)
A mode of description of a system in which the time dependence is carried partly by the operators and partly by the state vectors, the time dependence of the state vectors being due entirely to that part of the Hamiltonian arising from interactions between particles. Also known as interaction representation.

As noted by Martin and Glauber [5], the polarization of the photon in S-state orbital electron capture is also sensitive to the phase of the vector and axial-vector couplings in the low-energy interaction Hamiltonian [14] if the anti-neutrino is no longer assumed to be strictly right-handed.
extensions of symmetric restrictions [1,6-8] and is closely related with the subjects of point interaction Hamiltonians [7,9-11] and surface interactions [12].
