TTP97-35 Lepton pair production by a high energy photon in a strong electromagnetic field

Using impact-factor representation, we consider the lepton pair production by an incident high-energy photon in a strong electromagnetic field of a nucleus. By summing leading terms of perturbation series, we obtain a simple formula for the amplitude, valid to all orders in ${\cal O}(\alpha Z)$ and arbitrary field of the nucleus. Using these results, we derive, in a simple manner, the results for the lepton pair production by a virtual incident photon in a Coulomb field. For real incident photon our results coincide with the known ones. Also, a particular example of a non-Coulomb potential is discussed in some detail.
