Top-Assisted Di-Higgs boson Production Motivated by BaryogenesisJan 01 2019Apr 01 2019We study top-assisted di-Higgs production via $cg \to tH \to thh$, where $h$ is the 125 GeV scalar boson, and $H$ is the $CP$-even heavy Higgs. The context is the two Higgs doublet model without a $Z_2$ symmetry, where the extra Yukawa coupling $\rho_{tc}$ ... More

Moving obstacle potential in a spin-orbit-coupled Bose-Einstein condensateJul 28 2017We investigate the dynamics around an obstacle potential moving in the plane-wave state of a pseudospin-$1/2$ Bose-Einstein condensate with Rashba spin-orbit coupling. We numerically investigate the dynamics of the system and find that it depends not ... More

A generalization of the steepest-edge rule and its number of simplex iterations for a nondegenerate LPMar 14 2018In this paper, we propose a $p$-norm rule, which is a generalization of the steepest-edge rule, as a pivoting rule for the simplex method. For a nondegenerate linear programming problem, we show upper bounds for the number of iterations of the simplex ... More

Generalized quark-antiquark potentials from a $q$-deformed AdS$_5 \times $S$^5$ backgroundFeb 22 2016May 01 2016We study minimal surfaces with a single cusp in a $q$-deformed AdS$_5\times$S$^5$ background. The cusp is composed of two half-lines with an arbitrary angle and is realized on a surface specified in the deformed AdS$_5$. The classical string solutions ... More

A 15.2 TFlops Simulation of Geodynamo on the Earth SimulatorOct 04 2004For realistic geodynamo simulations, one must solve the magnetohydrodynamic equations to follow time development of thermal convection motion of electrically conducting fluid in a rotating spherical shell. We have developed a new geodynamo simulation ... More

Screening Corrections to the Electron Capture Rates in Dense Stars by the Relativistically Degenerate Electron LiquidJul 05 2002Aug 02 2007We calculate the screening corrections to the electron capture rates in dense stars by the relativistically degenerate electron liquid. In order to calculate the screening corrections we adopt the linear response theory which is widely used in the field ... More

Dispersive estimates for quantum walks on 1D latticeAug 17 2018We consider quantum walks with position dependent coin on 1D lattice $\mathbb Z$. The dispersive estimate $\|U^tP_c u_0\|_{l^\infty}\lesssim (1+|t|)^{-1/3} \|u_0\|_{l^1}$ is shown under $l^{1,1}$ perturbation for the generic case and $l^{1,2}$ perturbation ... More

Wannier representation of Floquet topological statesMar 28 2019A universal feature of topological insulators is that they cannot be adiabatically connected to an atomic limit, where individual lattice sites are completely decoupled. This property is intimately related to a topological obstruction to constructing ... More

Ultrafast near infrared photoinduced absorption in a multiferroic single crystal of bismuth ferriteMar 31 2015We studied the ultrafast third-order optical nonlinearity in a single crystal of multiferroic bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3) in the near-infrared range of 0.5-1.0 eV, where the material is fundamentally transparent,at room temperature. With pump pulses at 1.55 ... More
