Abstract

By means of functional integrals, a Hamiltonian of a system of a charged particle coupled to a quantized radiation field is investigated, it is the so called Pauli-Fierz model in nonrelativistic quantum electrodynamics. Embedded eigenvalues of the Hamiltonian with a singular external potential are studied and their multiplicities are estimated. The localization of a charge density of eigenvectors is considered. A partial trace of the semigroup generated by the Hamiltonian is defined and its classical limit, ℏ → 0, is discussed. Finally a nonrelativistic limit, c → ∞, is considered.
