Can Electro-Weak $\h$-Term be Observable ?May 14 1993We rederive and discuss the result of the previous paper that in the standard model $\theta$-term related to $W$-boson field can not be induced by weak instantons. This follows from the existence of the fermion zero mode in the instanton field even when ... More
Exact string background from a WZW model based on the Heisenberg groupMar 07 1994A WZW model for the non-semi-simple D-dimensional Heisenberg group, which directly generalizes the E_{2}^{c} group, is constructed. It is found to correspond to an D-dimensional string background of plane-wave type with physical Lorentz signature D-2. ... More
Notes on non-thermal X-ray radiation of radio supernova remnant W50 and collimated radiation of SS433Jun 19 2013Diffuse X-ray emission of the radio nebula W50 along the line of the of jets of the microquasar SS433 has a non-thermal power law component. This could be the inverse-Compton scattered emission of the SS433 accretion disk funnel, which is collimated in ... More
Next-to-next-to-leading order vacuum polarization function of heavy quark near threshold and sum rules for $b \bar b$ systemMar 16 1998Apr 06 1998A correlator of the vector current of a heavy quark is computed analytically near threshold in the next-to-next-to-leading order in perturbative and relativistic expansion that includes $\al_s^2$, $\al_sv$ and $v^2$ corrections in the coupling constant ...

Comment on ``Next-to-next-to-leading order vacuum polarization function of heavy quark near threshold and sum rules for $b \bar b$ system'' and ``Next-to-next-to-leading order relation between $R(e^+e^-\to b\bar b)$ and $Γ_{\rm sl}(b\to clν_l)$ and precise ... MoreJan 19 1999The most recent recalculation of the two-loop correction to the static quark-antiquark potential gave the numerical value different from the previously known one. We comment on the effect this change produces on the numerical estimates of the bottom quark ... More
Extended analysis of the "penguin" part of $K\toππ$ amplitudeMar 14 1995We make an attempt to clarify the role of the annihilation or "penguin" mode in the description of the $K\rightarrow\pi\pi$ decay within the Standard Model. The attention is concentrated on new operators in the effective $\Delta S=1$ Hamiltonian and the ... More
Geodesics and admissible-path spaces in Carnot GroupsNov 26 2013We study the topology of admissible-loop spaces on a step-two Carnot group G. We use a Morse-Bott theory argument to study the structure and the number of geodesics on G connecting the origin with a 'vertical' point (geodesics are critical points of the ... More
Numerical analysis of renormalon technique in quantum mechanicsNov 29 1996Jul 14 1997We discuss the ways of extracting a low energy scale of an underlying theory using high energy scattering data. Within an exactly solvable model of quantum mechanics we analyze a technique based on introduction of nonperturbative power corrections accounting ... More
