Abstract

Abstract Aharonov-Bohm (AB) scattering by the vector potential of an infinitely long impenetrable solenoid of zero radius which carries magnetic flux is shown to violate the conservation of angular momentum. The difficulty is due to improper boundary conditions for a scattering problem used by AB.
