216). 223) i=1 j=1 If they are normalized to unity we have (1j1(k)11j1(1)) = Dk,l , (1j1(k)lifI1j1(1») = ckDk,l, k, 1= 1, ... N . 224) The method of diagonalizing in a subspace is particularly useful if we are looking for approximations to describe not only the ground state of a system. 215) sets an upper bound for the ground state energy and hence we know, the lower the value of E[ 1j1], the closer it is to the exact ground state energy El. 215), and it is not always a good thing to approximate it by a model state with as Iowan energy as possible.

For a broader resonance, however, the unique definition of its position and width can become a difficult problem (see also Sect. 3). The derivative of the phase shift with respect to energy is also a measure for the strength of the closed channel component in the solution of the coupled channel equations.
