In this report the crystallization of both alpha and gamma phase from DMSO solvent by varying preparation ... More

Commutativity and spectral properties of $k^{th}$-order slant little Hankel operators on the Bergman spaceDec 18 2017In this paper, we introduce the notion of $k^{th}$-order slant little Hankel operator on the Bergman space with essentially bounded harmonic symbols on the unit disc and obtain its algebraic and spectral properties. We have also discussed the conditions ... More

Physics of interface: Barrier with correlations and disorder sandwiched between two metallic planesSep 28 2010Mar 21 2011A Metal-Disordered Mott insulator-Metal heterostructure is studied at half-fiiling using unrestricted Hartree Fock method. The corresponding clean system has been shown to be an insulator for any finite on site correlation. Interestingly we find that ... More
