Charge oscillations in Quantum Dots: Renormalization group and Hartree method calculationsAug 04 2004Nov 08 2005We analyze the local level occupation of a spinless, interacting two-level quantum dot coupled to two leads by means of Wilson's numerical renormalization group method. A gate voltage sweep, causing a rearrangement of the charge such that the system's ... More
Fermi-edge exciton-polaritons in doped semiconductor microcavities with finite hole massJul 26 2017Oct 27 2017The coupling between a 2D semiconductor quantum well and an optical cavity gives rise to combined light-matter excitations, the exciton-polaritons. These were usually measured when the conduction band is empty, making the single polariton physics a simple ... More
Shedding light on non-equilibrium dynamics of a spin coupled to fermionic reservoirJul 22 2009A single confined spin interacting with a solid-state environment has emerged as one of the fundamental paradigms of mesoscopic physics. In contrast to standard quantum optical systems, decoherence that stems from these interactions can in general not ... More
A note on quadratic forms of stationary functional time series under mild conditionsMay 30 2019We study the distributional properties of a quadratic form of a stationary functional time series under mild moment conditions. As an important application, we obtain consistency rates of estimators of spectral density operators and prove joint weak convergence ... More
Effects of periodic forcing on a Paleoclimate delay modelAug 07 2018Jan 11 2019We present a study of a delay differential equation (DDE) model for the Mid-Pleistocene Transition (MPT). We investigate the behavior of the model when subjected to periodic forcing. The unforced model has a bistable region consisting of a stable equilibrium ... More
The gluon propagator close to criticalityOct 28 2011Mar 15 2012The deconfinement phase transition of pure Yang-Mills theory at finite temperature is reflected in the behavior of gauge-fixed gluonic correlation functions. This is one of many examples of how physical information can be extracted from gauge-dependent ... More
