Abstract:  We study the quantum resonances in magnetic scattering in two dimensions.  The scattering system consists of two obstacles by which the magnetic fields are completely shielded.  The trajectories trapped between the two obstacles are shown to generate the resonances near the positive real axis, when the distance between the obstacles goes to infinity.  The location is described in terms of the backward amplitudes for scattering by each obstacle.  A difficulty arises from the fact that even if the supports of the magnetic fields are largely separated from each other, the corresponding vector potentials are not expected to be well separated.  To overcome this, we make use of a guage transformation and develop a new type of a complex scaling method.  We can cover the scattering by two solenoids at large separation as a special case.  The obtained result heavily depends on the magnetic fluxes of the solenoids.  This indicates that the Aharonov-Bohm effect influences the location of resonances.  This is joint work with Hideo Tamura.
