Abstract

Different expressions for the transmittance m wave-packet scattering in one dimension are examined. Special attention is paid to the difficulties when the initial packet rho(0) has negative momentum components. A general formula is provided for this case, and the domain of applicability of a simple approximate expression is indicated. A model calculation illustrates the results.
