Consider an ample line bundle $L=\mathcal{O}(m\widetilde{\mathcal{C}})$ on $X$ for an even number $m$. For a general smooth ... More

Thermodynamics of the Double Exchange SystemsDec 04 1998This article gives a comprehensive review on the recent studies of the double exchange systems using non-perturbative approaches; the dynamical mean-field theory and the Monte Carlo method. Investigations beyond mean-field type treatments are described. ... More

Quantum planes and quantum cylinders from Poisson homogeneous spacesApr 25 1995Quantum planes and a new quantum cylinder are obtained as quantization of Poisson homogeneous spaces of two different Poisson structures on classical Euclidean group E(2).

Narrow-width approximation limitationsMar 07 2007Apr 23 2007The quality of the narrow-width approximation is examined for partonic and convolved cross sections of sample processes. By comparison with accurate predictions significant limitations are revealed.

Resistive relativistic magnetohydrodynamics from a charged multi-fluids perspectiveApr 12 2012We consider general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics from a charged multifluids point-of-view, taking a variational approach as our starting point. We develop the case of two charged components in detail, accounting for a phenomenological resistivity, ... More

The detection of neutrino interactions in the emulsion/lead target of the OPERA experimentMar 17 2009The OPERA neutrino detector in the underground Gran Sasso Laboratory (LNGS) was designed to perform the first detection of neutrino oscillations in appearance mode through the study of $\nu_\mu\to\nu_\tau$ oscillations. The apparatus consists of an emulsion/lead ... More

Near doping-independent pocket area from an antinodal Fermi surface instability in underdoped high temperature superconductorsAug 06 2011Fermi surface models applied to the underdoped cuprates predict the small pocket area to be strongly dependent on doping whereas quantum oscillations in YBa2Cu3O6+x find precisely the opposite to be true; seemingly at odds with the Luttinger volume. We ... More

Calculation of nanowire thermal conductivity using complete phonon dispersion relationsAug 27 2003The lattice thermal conductivity of crystalline Si nanowires is calculated. The calculation uses complete phonon dispersions, and does not require any externally imposed frequency cutoffs. No adjustment to nanowire thermal conductivity measurements is ... More

Correlation functions of the higher spin XXX chainsApr 11 2001Jul 31 2001Using the Algebraic Bethe Ansatz we consider the correlation functions of the integrable higher spin chains. We apply a method recently developed for the spin $\frac 12$ Heisenberg chain, based on the solution of the quantum inverse problem. We construct ... More

On Measuring Split-SUSY Neutralino and Chargino Masses at the LHCJun 26 2008May 04 2009In Split-Supersymmetry models, where the only non-Standard Model states produceable at LHC-energies consist of a gluino plus neutralinos and charginos, it is conventionally accepted that only mass differences among these latter are measureable at the ...
