Vacuum Structure and Chiral Symmetry BreakingMay 25 1994We relate here the vacuum structure of chiral symmetry breaking to a wide class of low energy hadronic properties to examine consistency with experimental results. Phase transition of chiral symmetry breaking is described through explicit vacuum realignment. ... More

Pseudo-Newtonian Potentials to Describe the Temporal Effects on Relativistic Accretion Disks around Rotating Black Holes and Neutron StarsSep 03 2002Two pseudo-Newtonian potentials, which approximate the angular and epicyclic frequencies of the relativistic accretion disk around rotating (and counter rotating) compact objects, are presented. One of them, the Logarithmically Modified Potential, is ... More

Techniques for Distributed Reachability Analysis with Partial Order and Symmetry based ReductionsJan 01 2009In this work we propose techniques for efficient reachability analysis of the state space (e.g., detection of bad states) using a combination of partial order and symmetry based reductions in a distributed setting. The proposed techniques are focused ... More
