Quantum-Limited Position Detection and Amplification: A Linear Response PerspectiveJun 23 2004Nov 22 2004Using standard linear response relations, we derive the quantum limit on the sensitivity of a generic linear-response position detector, and the noise temperature of a generic linear amplifier. Particular emphasis is placed on the detector's effective ... More

Power-Like Threshold Corrections to Gauge Unification in Extra DimensionsDec 12 2002Aug 21 2003One of the much-debated novel features of theories with extra dimensions is the presence of power-like loop corrections to gauge coupling unification, which have the potential of allowing a significant reduction of the unification scale. A recognized ... More

Space-time correlations in urban population flowsJul 27 2012Evidences are presented concerning tantalizing regularities in cities' population-flows in what regards to space and time correlations. The former exhibit a distance-behavior (for large distances) compatible with the inverse square law, following an overall ... More
