Calculating Eigenkets of Perturbed Matrix for Second-Order Correction

While the equation for the second-order correction \begin{equation} E_n^{(2)} = \langle n^0 | H^1 | n^1 \rangle \end{equation} Is correct, I found that it is more useful to put that equation in its ...

Solutions for nonrelativistic-matter perturbations

Deep in radiation domination ($y\ll 1$), the two solutions are $\delta=1$ and $\delta=\ln a$. Physically, these solutions describe the effects of particle drift in the complete absence of peculiar ...

What goes wrong with strongly coupled theories?

Yes, the problem with strong coupling is typically that you will need many terms to get a decent approximation. However, it is also true that the perturbative series often does not converge. Hence, if ...

In a scalar QFT, how are Feynman diagrams drawn if the interaction Lagrangian has multiple terms?

Briefly speaking, since the interaction terms enter additively in the action $$S[\phi] ~:=~\underbrace{S_2[\phi]}_{\text{quadratic part}} + \underbrace{S_{\neq 2}[\phi]}_{\text{interactions}}, \tag{1}...
