Sum rules for surface response functions with application to the van der Waals interaction between an atom and a metal

View publication

Abstract

We derive powerful sum rules for several important surface response functions which describe the response of a metal surface to an external time-dependent electric field. As an illustration, the van der Waals interaction between a particle and a metal is discussed. © 1983 The American Physical Society.
