Dear Tony,
I wrote to you about this 3 years ago, but for some reason, the correction was never made.
The Aharanov-Bohm phase is not normalized correctly. The integral should be (hbar) \Phi,
not (1/2 pi) \Phi. Christian told me he could correct that--particularly if we wrote it (h/2 pi) \Phi.
In natural units, one always uses hbar=1, not h=1. So correct alternatives are:
\Phi
(hbar) \Phi
(h/2 pi) \Phi
but the current
(1/2 pi) \Phi
is not right.
Best,
Martin
p.s. I've copied George and Fred on this so they can chime in if they like.
