A First-Landau-Level Laughlin/Jain Wave Function for the Fractional Quantum Hall EffectOct 23 1995Apr 11 1996We show that the introduction of a more general closed-shell operator allows one to extend Laughlin's wave function to account for the richer hierarchies (1/3, 2/5, 3/7 ...; 1/5, 2/9, 3/13, ..., etc.) found experimentally. The construction identifies ... More
Erupting filaments with large enclosing flux tubes as sources of high-mass 3-part CMEs, and erupting filaments in the absence of enclosing flux tubes as sources of low-mass unstructured CMEsJun 10 2016The 3-part appearance of many CMEs arising from erupting filaments emerges from a large magnetic flux tube structure, consistent with the form of the erupting filament system. Other CMEs arising from erupting filaments lack a clear 3-part structure and ... More
Observational Constraints on Open Inflation ModelsAug 27 1996Mar 28 1997We discuss observational constraints on models of open inflation. Current data from large-scale structure and the cosmic microwave background prefer models with blue spectra and/or Omega_0 >= 0.3--0.5. Models with minimal anisotropy at large angles are ... More
Unitary Units of The Group Algebra ${\mathbb{F}}_{2^k}Q_{8}$May 28 2009The structure of the unitary unit group of the group algebra ${\F}_{2^k} Q_{8}$ is described as a Hamiltonian group.
Imposing causality on a matrix modelDec 22 2008Jun 28 2009We introduce a new matrix model that describes Causal Dynamical Triangulations (CDT) in two dimensions. In order to do so, we introduce a new, simpler definition of 2D CDT and show it to be equivalent to the old one. The model makes use of ideas from ... More
