For reference, the fermion propagator is $$\left\langle 0 \right| T\psi(x)\overline\psi(y) \left|0\right \rangle= S(x-y) = \int \frac{d^4k}{(2\pi)^4} \frac{i}{\not k-m}e^{-ik\cdot(x-y)}$$ Depending on the time ordering, this describes a particle moving from $y$ to $x$, or an antiparticle moving from $x$ to $y$. Now, consider a one-loop diagram in which ...

There are two things to consider: What does the potential look like? Is the wave function of the qubit narrow in the flux or charge basis? Potential shape The Hamiltonian of the transmon (a junction in parallel with a capacitor) is $$H_{\text{charge qubit}} = - E_J \cos(\phi) + \frac{(-2en)^2}{2C}$$ where $E_J\equiv I_c \Phi_0 / 2\pi$, $I_c$ is the ...

If q is the momentum for positron, then the propagator for it is still $i\frac{\not{q}+m}{\not{q}^2 +m^2}$.
