IV: Generalization of Maxwell, Claussius-Clapeyron and Response Functions Relations, and the Prigogine-Defay Ratio for Systems in Internal EquilibriumJan 02 2011Jan 04 2011We follow the consequences of internal equilibrium in non-equilibrium systems that has been introduced recently [Phys. Rev. E 81, 051130 (2010)] to obtain the generalization of Maxwell's relation and the Clausius-Clapeyron relation that are normally given ... More

A novel gauge invariant multi-state smearing techniqueMar 22 1999We present an investigation of a gauge invariant smearing technique that allows the construction of smearing functions with arbitrary radial behaviour, by foresaking the space filling nature of traditional smearing techniques. This is applied to both ... More

Sensitivity to the Gravitino mass from single-photon spectrum at TESLA Linear ColliderNov 02 1999The spectrum of single-photon events detected in the forward and in the barrel region of a TESLA linear collider detector was studied in order to investigate the production of superlight Gravitino pairs associated with a photon.

Pairing and symmetry energy in N \simeq Z nucleiMay 06 1998Oct 07 1998It is shown that in N \simeq Z nuclei the effects of isovector pairing and the symmetry energy are intimately related. In particular, in the odd-odd N = Z nuclei these two effect are essentially equal in magnitude, causing near degeneracy of the lowest ... More

Fast Computation of the Expected Loss of a Loan Portfolio Tranche in the Gaussian Factor Model: Using Hermite Expansions for Higher AccuracyJun 19 2005We propose a fast algorithm for computing the expected tranche loss in the Gaussian factor model. We test it on portfolios ranging in size from 25 (the size of DJ iTraxx Australia) to 100 (the size of DJCDX.NA.HY) with a single factor Gaussian model and ... More

Summing up Open String Instantons and N=1 String AmplitudesMar 26 2002Apr 17 2002We compute the instanton expansions of the holomorphic couplings in the effective action of certain $\cx N=1$ supersymmetric four-dimensional open string vacua. These include the superpotential $W(\phi)$, the gauge kinetic function $f(\phi)$ and a series ... More

Prospects for perfect actionsSep 24 1997The fixed-point (FP) action in QCD, although it is local and determined by classical equations, is difficult to parametrize well and is expensive to simulate. But the stake is high: the FP action has scale invariant instanton solutions, has no topological ... More
