Entanglement Swapping with Semiconductor-generated PhotonsJan 23 2019Transferring entangled states between photon pairs is essential for quantum communication technologies. Semiconductor quantum dots are the most promising candidate for generating polarization-entangled photons deterministically. Recent improvements in ... More

On "Quantum interference with slits" and its "revisited"Jan 31 2019Marcella in 2002 published a "quantum-mechanical" treatment of the famous single- and double-slit interference experiment in classical wave optics by a simple assumption that quantum mechanical wave function is a constant anywhere within a slit. Rothman ... More

Structural Stability and Renormalization Group for Propagating FrontsAug 31 1993A solution to a given equation is structurally stable if it suffers only an infinitesimal change when the equation (not the solution) is perturbed infinitesimally. We have found that structural stability can be used as a velocity selection principle for ... More

Statistics of Magnification Perturbations by Substructure in the Cold Dark Matter Cosmological ModelJun 23 2005Nov 21 2005We study the statistical properties of magnification perturbations by substructures in strong lensed systems using linear perturbation theory and an analytical substructure model including tidal truncation and a continuous substructure mass spectrum. ...

A Lattice Boltzmann Subgrid Model for High Reynolds Number FlowsJan 28 1994A subgrid turbulence model for the lattice Boltzmann method is proposed for high Reynolds number fluid flow applications. The method, based on the standard Smagorinsky subgrid model and a single-time relaxation lattice Boltzmann method, incorporates the ... More
