The influence of the temperature and density of an electron gas on beta processes in a quantum magnetic field
Abstract
Beta processes occurring upon variation of the temperature and density of an electron gas in a wide range are investigated by accounting for the effect of a strong magnetic field on the motion of charged particles. The study is performed in the Furry framework. Inherent to the case considered is that, for certain relationships between the main parameters of the problem, the probabilities of beta processes and the neutrino luminosities caused by them exhibit an oscillatory behavior. In the degeneracy case, the interference effects reflecting the nonanalyticity of the expressions upon field vanishing exceed the contributions from perturbation theory. The results are of interest in connection with the collapse of massive stellar nuclei.
