In small body explorations, especially, detailed in-situ surface exploration by tiny rover is one of effective and fruitful means and is expected to make strong contributions towards ... More

Transport Coefficients of Non-Newtonian Fluid and Causal Dissipative HydrodynamicsJun 23 2008Oct 20 2008A new formula to calculate the transport coefficients of the causal dissipative hydrodynamics is derived by using the projection operator method (Mori-Zwanzig formalism) in [T. Koide, Phys. Rev. E75, 060103(R) (2007)]. This is an extension of the Green-Kubo-Nakano ... More

Variational Principle of Hydrodynamics and Quantization by Stochastic ProcessDec 19 2014Jan 05 2015The well-known hydrodynamical representation of the Schr\"{o}dinger equation is reformulated by extending the idea of Nelson-Yasue's stochastic variational method. The fluid flow is composed by the two stochastic processes from the past and the future, ... More

Thermodynamic Laws and Equipartition Theorem in Relativistic Brownian MotionFeb 16 2011Apr 27 2011We extend the stochastic energetics to a relativistic system. The thermodynamic laws and equipartition theorem are discussed for a relativistic Brownian particle and the first and the second law of thermodynamics in this formalism are derived. The relation ...

Searching for g modes: Part II. Unconfirmed g-mode detection in the power spectrum of the time series of round-trip travel timeMar 09 2019The recent claimed detection of g modes was obtained from the analysis of the power spectrum of the time series of round-trip travel time of p modes. The goal of this paper is to reproduce these results on which the claims are based for confirming or ... More
