New path description for the M(k+1,2k+3) models and the dual Z_k graded parafermionsSep 11 2007May 28 2008We present a new path description for the states of the non-unitary M(k+1,2k+3) models. This description differs from the one induced by the Forrester-Baxter solution, in terms of configuration sums, of their restricted-solid-on-solid model. The proposed ... More
A quasi-particle description of the M(3,p) modelsJun 09 2005Oct 07 2005The M(3,p) minimal models are reconsidered from the point of view of the extended algebra whose generators are the energy-momentum tensor and the primary field \phi_{2,1} of dimension $(p-2)/4$. Within this framework, we provide a quasi-particle description ... More
Pascal's triangle and word bases for blob algebra idealsJun 12 2007We give an elementary proof of isomorphism of the blob (diagram) algebra and the corresponding extended Temperley-Lieb algebra (defined by presentation).
Probing gravity at sub-femtometer scales through the pressure distribution inside the protonFeb 04 2019Recently, a measurement of the pressure distribution experienced by the quarks inside the proton has found a strong repulsive (positive) pressure at distances up to 0.6 femtometers from its center and a (negative) confining pressure at larger distances. ...

A Six-Planet System Orbiting HD 219134Sep 25 2015We present new, high-precision Doppler radial velocity (RV) data sets for the nearby K3V star HD 219134. The data include 175 velocities obtained with the HIRES Spectrograph at the Keck I Telescope, and 101 velocities obtained with the Levy Spectrograph ... More
Fourier Disentangling Using the Technology of Virtual ObservatoryMar 25 2010The Virtual Observatory is a new technology of the astronomical research allowing the seamless processing and analysis of a heterogeneous data obtained from a number of distributed data archives. It may also provide astronomical community with powerful ... More
Pion $p_T$ spectra in $p+p$ collisions as a function of $\sqrt{s}$ and event multiplicityAug 05 2014Sep 03 2014We study the charged pion transverse momentum ($p_T$) spectra in $p$+$p$ collisions as a function of collision energy $\sqrt{s}$ and event multiplicity using Tsallis distribution. This study gives an insight of the pion production process in $p+p$ collisions. ... More
Heterotic String/F-theory Duality from Mirror SymmetryNov 25 1998Apr 15 1999We use local mirror symmetry in type IIA string compactifications on Calabi-Yau n+1 folds $X_{n+1}$ to construct vector bundles on (possibly singular) elliptically fibered Calabi-Yau n-folds Z_n. The interpretation of these data as valid classical solutions ... More
QCD Equation of State and Hadron Resonance GasDec 13 2009May 03 2010We compare the trace anomaly, strangeness and baryon number fluctuations calculated in lattice QCD with expectations based on hadron resonance gas model. We find that there is a significant discrepancy between the hadron resonance gas and the lattice ... More
Faraday waves in elongated superfluid fermionic cloudsAug 19 2008Sep 29 2008We use hydrodynamic equations to study the formation of Faraday waves in a superfluid Fermi gas at zero temperature confined in a strongly elongated cigar-shaped trap. First, we treat the role of the radial density profile in the limit of an infinite ... More
Avoiding unrealistic priors: the case of dark energy constraints from the time variation of the fine-structure constantFeb 14 2016We critically assess recent claims suggesting that upper limits on the time variation of the fine-structure constant tightly constrain the coupling of a dark energy scalar field to the electromagnetic sector, and, indirectly, the violation of the weak ...

Dependence of the Form Factors of $B \to π\ell ν$ on the Heavy Quark MassDec 10 1993We use QCD sum rules to analyze the semileptonic transition $B \to \pi \ell \nu$ in the limit $m_b \to \infty$. We derive the dependence of the form factor $F_1(0)$ on the heavy quark mass, which is compatible with the expected dependence for the simple ... More
Optical Nuclei of Radio-loud AGN and the Fanaroff-Riley DivideJan 06 2004Aug 16 2004We investigate the nature of the point-like optical ``cores'' that have been found in the centres of the host galaxies of a majority of radio galaxies by the Hubble Space Telescope. We examine the evidence that these optical cores are relativistically ... More
