Superadiabatic evolution and adiabatic transition probability between two nondegenerate levels isolated in the spectrum

Abstract : The Schriidinger equation in the adiabatic limit when the Hamiltonian depends analytically on time and possesses for any fixed time two nondegenerate eigen-values e,(t) and e,(f) bounded away from the rest of the spectrum is considered herein. An approximation of the evolution called superadiabatic evolution is constructed and studied. Then a solution of the equation which is asymptotically an eigenfunction of energy e,(t) when t- ,-co is considered. Using superadiabatic evolution, an explicit formula for the transition probability to the eigenstate of energy ez(t) when t+ + CO, provided the two eigenvalues are sufficiently isolated in the spectrum, is derived. The end result is a decreasing exponential in the adiabaticity parameter times a geometrical prefactor.
