Description of Stellar Acoustic Modes Using the Local Wave ConceptJun 26 2006An understanding of stellar acoustic oscillations is attempted, using the local wave concept in semi-analytical calculations. The local homogeneity approximation allows to obtain simplified equations that can nevertheless describe the wave behavior down ... More

ad-nilpotent ideals of a Borel subalgebra IIIMar 05 2003Sep 30 2003This paper is devoted to a detailed study of certain remarkable posets which form a natural partition of all abelian ideals of a Borel subalgebra. Our main result is a nice uniform formula for the dimension of maximal ideals in these posets. We also obtain ... More

Resonance statistics in a microwave cavity with a thin antennaFeb 07 1997We propose a model for scattering in a flat resonator with a thin antenna. The results are applied to rectangular microwave cavities. We compute the resonance spacing distribution and show that it agrees well with experimental data provided the antenna ... More

Gribov Copies in Lattice QCDJun 15 1993We have performed an exhaustive search for Gribov copies on the lattice and their possible dependence from finite temperature effects. We show that, for each value of lattice size, Gribov copies are dense in configuration space at low temperature but ... More

Particles in RSOS pathsJan 13 2009Mar 03 2009We introduce a new representation of the paths of the Forrester-Baxter RSOS models which represents the states of the irreducible modules of the minimal models M(p',p). This representation is obtained by transforming the RSOS paths, for the cases p> 2p'-2, ... More
