Paper Title:
Influence of Electron-Electron Correlations and Lattice Effects on Positron-Electron Enhancement Factors
  Abstract

We present an approach taking into account the effect of electron-electron (e-e) correlations on electron-positron (e-p) momentum density distributions. The approach bases on the modification of the Bethe-Goldstone (B-G) equation for the positron in the electron gas due to self-energy effects. The example calculations have been performed for selected parameters corresponding to simple metals. The calculated dependencies exhibit the increase of the e-p enhancement factors below Fermi momentum, like Kahana enhancements, and a decrease above the Fermi sphere, leading to a many-body “tail” in the e-p momentum density distributions. Moreover, the influence of lattice effects on enhancement factors (EF) is taken into account. This decreases by a few percent the absolute values of the e-p momentum distributions and the corresponding annihilation rates and for real metals such as Mg or Cu evidently improve the agreement with experiment.
