Reentrant metallic transition at a temperature above Tc at the breakdown of cooperative Jahn-Teller orbital order in perovskite manganitesDec 07 2004We report an interesting reentrant metallic resistivity pattern beyond a characteristic temperature T* which is higher than other such characteristic transition temperatures like T(c)(Curie point), T(N) (Neel point), T(CO) (charge order onset point) or ...

Thermogeometric study of van der Waals like phase transition in black holes: an alternative approachMar 25 2019It is well-known that the non-extremal anti-de-Sitter (AdS) black holes show various van der Waals type criticalities, such as the $P-V$, $T-S$, $Y-X$, $Q^2-\Psi$ \etc~In these cases, the phase space diagram of the relevant quantities are similar in behaviour ...

Non-Ergodicity of Nose-Hoover chain thermostat in computationally achievable timeJul 09 2014The widely used Nose-Hoover chain (NHC) thermostat in molecular dynamics simulations is generally believed to impart the canonical distribution as well as quasi- (i.e., space filling) ergodicity on the thermostatted physical system (PS). Working with ... More

Design of Linear Parameter Varying Quadratic Regulator in Polynomial Chaos FrameworkNov 07 2017We present a new theoretical framework for designing linear parameter varying controllers in the polynomial chaos framework. We assume the scheduling variable to be random and apply polynomial chaos approach to synthesize the controller for the resulting ... More

On Geometric Ergodicity of Additive and Multiplicative Transformation Based Markov Chain Monte Carlo in High DimensionsDec 03 2013Jan 23 2017Recently Dutta and Bhattacharya (2013) introduced a novel Markov Chain Monte Carlo methodology that can simultaneously update all the components of high dimensional parameters using simple deterministic transformations of a one-dimensional random variable ...
