This method, based on a generalization of the well known Riemann problem, provides intrinsic results which can be interpreted from the geometrical point of view. ... More

Flux Limiter Methods in 3D Numerical RelativityFeb 28 2002New numerical methods have been applied in relativity to obtain a numerical evolution of Einstein equations much more robust and stable. Starting from 3+1 formalism and with the evolution equations written as a FOFCH (first-order flux conservative hyperbolic) ... More

Staggered Chiral Perturbation Theory for Heavy-Light MesonsOct 18 2005Jan 25 2006We incorporate heavy-light mesons into staggered chiral perturbation theory, working to leading order in 1/m_Q, where m_Q is the heavy quark mass. At first non-trivial order in the chiral expansion, staggered taste violations affect the chiral logarithms ... More

Replica methods for loopy sparse random graphsJan 29 2016I report on the development of a novel statistical mechanical formalism for the analysis of random graphs with many short loops, and processes on such graphs. The graphs are defined via maximum entropy ensembles, in which both the degrees (via hard constraints) ... More

Statistical Mechanics of Recurrent Neural Networks I. StaticsJun 01 2000A lecture notes style review of the equilibrium statistical mechanics of recurrent neural networks with discrete and continuous neurons (e.g. Ising, coupled-oscillators). To be published in the Handbook of Biological Physics (North-Holland). Accompanied ... More

Light-front representation of chiral dynamics with Delta isobar and large-N_c relationsMar 29 2016Transverse densities describe the spatial distribution of electromagnetic current in the nucleon at fixed light-front time. At peripheral distances b = O(M_pi^{-1}) the densities are governed by chiral dynamics and can be calculated model-independently ... More

Radio Identification of the X-ray Jet in the z=4.3 Quasar GB 1508+5714Oct 25 2003Dec 01 2003The recent discovery of an X-ray jet in the z=4.3 quasar GB 1508+5714 by Yuan et al. (astro-ph/0309318) and Siemiginowska et al. (astro-ph/0310241) prompted a search for its radio counterpart. Here, we report the successful discovery of faint radio emission ... More

CNN as Guided Multi-layer RECOS TransformJan 30 2017Feb 19 2017There is a resurging interest in developing a neural-network-based solution to the supervised machine learning problem. The convolutional neural network (CNN) will be studied in this note. To begin with, we introduce a RECOS transform as a basic building ... More
