Polarization characteristics of the Crab pulsar's giant radio pulses at HFCs phasesNov 20 2005Nov 21 2005We discuss our recent discovery of the giant radio emission from the Crab pulsar at its high frequency components (HFCs) phases and show the polarization characteristic of these pulses. This leads us to a suggestion that there is no difference in the ... More

Self-consistent theory of large amplitude collective motion: Applications to approximate quantization of non-separable systems and to nuclear physicsNov 30 1999The goal of the present account is to review our efforts to obtain and apply a ``collective'' Hamiltonian for a few, approximately decoupled, adiabatic degrees of freedom, starting from a Hamiltonian system with more or many more degrees of freedom. The ... More

Berry phase from a quantum Zeno effectMar 31 1999We exhibit a specific implementation of the creation of geometrical phase through the state-space evolution generated by the dynamic quantum Zeno effect. That is, a system is guided through a closed loop in Hilbert space by means a sequence of closely ... More

Non-Hierarchical Clock Synchronization for Wireless Sensor NetworksDec 06 2012Time synchronization is important for a variety of applications in wireless sensor networks including scheduling communication resources, coordinating sensor wake/sleep cycles, and aligning signals for distributed transmission/reception. This paper describes ... More
