Acceleration of Born series by change of variables
Rights accessOpen Access
In this work, we propose a method to enhance the convergence of the Born series. The Born series is widely used in scattering theory, but its convergence is only guaranteed under certain restrictive conditions which limit the cases where this formulation can be applied. The proposed method, based on modifying the singularities of the resolvent operator by a change of variables, accelerates the convergence of the series or even achieves convergence in otherwise divergent cases. Due to its low computational cost and ease of implementation, the method preserves the advantages of the Born series while it extends its range of application. It can also be applied to a variety of methods relying on the same mathematical principles as the Born series. Numerical examples are provided to show that a significant improvement can be achieved with simple techniques and with a limited knowledge about the operator spectrum.
