Outcome: Rejected (im.).

Motivation:
The editor wrote that "they accept only papers that are scientifically sound, important to the field, and contain significant new results in physics. We judge that these acceptance criteria are not met by your manuscript". I am sure that he did not see the paper carefully and did not understand the novelty of our work. Our work was soon accepted in other peer-reviewd journal and was significantly cited after publication. More surprisingly, the work based on our model was recently published in Physical Review A. So I did not understand that why our work was not significant and how similar kind of work was publishable in PRA later?
