Perturbative renormalization factors of quark operators for domain-wall QCDSep 08 1999We calculate one-loop renormalization factors of several quark operators including bilinear, three- and four-quark operator for domain-wall fermion action. Since Green functions are constructed for external physical quark fields, our renormalization method ... More

The dynamics of stellar disks in live dark-matter haloNov 30 2017Recent developments in computer hardware and software enables researchers to simulate the self-gravitating evolution of galaxies at a resolution comparable to the actual number of stars. Here we present the results of a series of such simulations. We ... More
