Abstract

The quantum tunneling in the thermal medium is analyzed. The derivation of inverted harmonic oscillators (IVHO) of the tunneling potential is presented. The barrier potential factor worked out as a function of time. A quantum mechanical formula is used for the cases without environment modification and the same is done under potential renormalization effects.
