Anomalous Fermion Production in Gravitational CollapseMay 24 1993The Dirac equation is solved in the Einstein-Yang-Mills background found by Bartnik and McKinnon. We find a normalizable zero-energy fermion mode in the $s$-wave sector. As shown recently, their solution corresponds to a gravitational sphaleron which ... More
The Painleve paradox in contact mechanicsJan 14 2016The 120-year old so-called Painleve paradox involves the loss of determinism in models of planar rigid bodies in point contact with a rigid surface, subject to Coulomb-like dry friction. The phenomenon occurs due to coupling between normal and rotational ... More
Parametrizations of the Poisson-Schrödinger Equations in Spherical SymmetryOct 15 2015We consider solutions to the Poisson-Schr\"{o}dinger system of equations of the form $f(t,r) = \mathrm{e}^{i(m-\omega) t}F(r)$ with the property that $F \to 0$ as $r \to \infty$. There exist well-known standing wave solutions called static states. We ... More
