Hokkaido University Preprint Series in Mathematics
Schrodinger operators with time-dependent potentials are studied. Necessary and sufficient conditions for existence of ordinary and Dollard-type modified wave operators are obtained. Sharp results for potentials with a specified leading term are obtained. Applications are given to the surfboard Schrodinger equation and to Stark Hamiltonians. In the latter case the discrepancy between classical and quantum scattering in dimension one is resolved.
