TOPIC: Allowed charge transfers between coherent conductors driven by a time-dependent scatterer


We derive constraints on the statistics of the charge transfer between two conductors in the model of arbitrary time-dependent instant scattering of noninteracting fermions at zero temperature. The constraints are formulated in terms of analytic properties of the generating function: its zeros must lie on the negative real axis. This result generalizes existing studies for scattering by a time-independent scatterer under time- dependent bias voltage.
