Sparseness of 4-cycle systemsSep 20 2012An avoidance problem of configurations in 4-cycle systems is investigated by generalizing the notion of sparseness, which is originally from Erd\H{o}s' r-sparse conjecture on Steiner triple systems. A 4-cycle system of order v, 4CS(v), is said to be r-sparse ... More

Electrically tunable plasma excitations in AA-stacking multilayer grapheneApr 10 2014We use a tight-binding model and the random-phase approximation to study the Coulomb excitations in simple-hexagonal-stacking multilayer graphene and discuss the field effects. The calculation results include the energy bands, the response functions, ... More
