Recent topics of mesic atoms and mesic nuclei -- $φ$ mesic nuclei exist ?--Dec 06 2008We study $\phi$-meson production in nuclei to investigate the in-medium modification of the $\phi$-meson spectral function at finite density. We consider (${\bar p},\phi$), ($\gamma,p$) and ($\pi^-,n$) reactions to produce a $\phi$-meson inside the nucleus ... More

Histogram comparison as a powerful tool for the search of new physics at LHC. Application to CMSSMSep 17 2011We propose a rigorous and effective way to compare experimental and theoretical histograms, incorporating the different sources of statistical and systematic uncertainties. This is a useful tool to extract as much information as possible from the comparison ... More

Temporal evolution of the Evershed flow in sunspots. II. Physical properties and nature of Evershed cloudsSep 11 2007Context: Evershed clouds (ECs) represent the most conspicuous variation of the Evershed flow in sunspot penumbrae. Aims: We determine the physical properties of ECs from high spatial and temporal resolution spectropolarimetric measurements. Methods: The ... More

Entropy, topological theories and emergent quantum mechanicsNov 22 2016Mar 06 2017The classical thermostatics of equilibrium processes is shown to possess a quantum-mechanical dual theory with a finite-dimensional Hilbert space of quantum states. Specifically, the kernel of a certain Hamiltonian operator becomes the Hilbert space of ... More
