Singlet and Triplet Differential Cross Sections for pp-> pp pi^0Aug 10 2001Feb 05 2002The singlet and triplet differential cross sections for pp-> pp pi^0 have been estimated for the first time at 325, 350, 375 and 400 MeV using the results of the recent experimental measurements [Phys. Rev. C 63, 064002 (2001)] of Meyer et al.
The p-cohomology of algebraic varieties and special values of zeta functionsOct 16 2013The p-cohomology of an algebraic variety in characteristic p lies naturally in the category $D_{c}^{b}(R)$ of coherent complexes of graded modules over the Raynaud ring (Ekedahl-Illusie-Raynaud). We study homological algebra in this category. When the ... More
Motivic complexes over finite fields and the ring of correspondences at the generic pointJul 20 2006May 03 2008Already in the 1960s Grothendieck understood that one could obtain an almost entirely satisfactory theory of motives over a finite field when one assumes the full Tate conjecture. In this note we prove a similar result for motivic complexes. In particular ... More
