Born-Oppenheimer approximation and the origin of Wess-Zumino terms: Some quantum-mechanical examples

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

I provide some simple quantum-mechanical examples in which the Berry phase gives rise to Wess-Zumino terms. The connection with the Born-Oppenheimer approximation is also discussed.
