Breakdown of step-flow growth in unstable homoepitaxyJan 13 2004Two mechanisms for the breakdown of step flow growth, in the sense of the appearance of steps of opposite sign to the original vicinality, are studied by kinetic Monte Carlo simulations and scaling arguments. The first mechanism is the nucleation of islands ... More
What does the CCFR measurement of the Gross--Llewelyn Smith sum rule tell us?Oct 14 1994Oct 18 1994Recently the CCFR Collaboration reported the measurement of the Gross--Llewellyn Smith sum rule %at $Q^2=3\; \mr{GeV}^2$: $\int^{1}_{0}\mr{d}F_{3}^{\nu p+\bare{\nu}p}(x,Q^2=3\;\mr{GeV}^2)= 2.50\pm 0.018(\mr{stat})$. Subsequently Kataev and Sidorov analyzed ... More
Parton-Hadron duality in event generatorsAug 28 1992Sep 04 1992The validity of local parton-hadron duality within the framework of HERWIG and JETSET event generators is investigated. We concentrate on ${\rm e}^{+}{\rm e}^{-}$ annihilations in LEP 2 energy range as these interactions provide theoretically the cleanest ... More
Accretion by GalaxiesMar 14 2000Both theory and observation indicate that galaxies like the Milky Way accrete matter at the rate of a few Msun per year.
Complexity fits the fittestDec 11 2012In this paper we shall relate computational complexity to the principle of natural selection. We shall do this by giving a philosophical account of complexity versus universality. It seems sustainable to equate universal systems to complex systems or ... More
Quantum field effects in coupled atomic and molecular Bose-Einstein condensatesJun 21 2001This paper examines the parameter regimes in which coupled atomic and molecular Bose-Einstein condensates do not obey the Gross-Pitaevskii equation. Stochastic field equations for coupled atomic and molecular condensates are derived using the functional ... More
Interaction of antiprotons with nucleiOct 26 2015We performed fully self-consistent calculations of $\bar{p}$-nuclear bound states using a complex ${\bar p}$-nucleus potential accounting for $\bar{p}$-atom data. While the real part of the potential is constructed within the relativistic mean-field (RMF) ... More
Composite resonances and their impact on the EW chiral LagrangianNov 12 2015In this talk we study the low-energy effective couplings generated by strongly-coupled electroweak models that contain heavy composite resonances. Invariance under $SU(2)_L\times SU(2)_R$ is a key ingredient in the construction of the resonance action. ... More
Hausdorff dimension of boundaries of self-affine tiles in R^nJan 15 1997We present a new method to calculate the Hausdorff dimension of a certain class of fractals: boundaries of self-affine tiles. Among the interesting aspects are that even if the affine contraction underlying the iterated function system is not conjugated ... More
