Impact of the matter density uncertainty on the dark energy reconstructionMar 04 2009Jun 24 2009In this paper we study the impact of the fractional matter density uncertainty in the reconstruction of the equation of state of dark energy. We consider both standard reconstruction methods, based on the dynamical effect that dark energy has on the expansion ... More
Mass inflation in Eddington-inspired Born-Infeld black holes: analytical scaling solutionsFeb 26 2016We study the inner dynamics of accreting Eddington-inspired Born-Infeld black holes using the homogeneous approximation and taking charge as a surrogate for angular momentum. We show that there is a minimum of the accretion rate below which mass inflation ... More
Nonlocal conservation laws in N=1,2 Supersymetric KdV equationJan 19 1993The \nl \cls for the N=1 supersymmetric KdV equation are shown to be related in a simple way to powers of the fourth root of its Lax operator. This provides a direct link between the supersymmetry invariance and the existence of \nl conservation laws. ... More
Sensitivity of the Superconducting Transition Temperature to Changes in the Spin-Fluctuation Spectral WeightNov 20 2002In the simplest model of magnetic pairing, the transition temperature to the superconducting state depends on the dynamical susceptibility $\chi({\bf q},\omega)$. We discuss how $T_c$ is affected by different momentum and frequency parts of $\chi({\bf ... More
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
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
Fermi-gas interpretation of the RSOS path representation of the superconformal unitary minimal modelsMay 15 2008Aug 12 2008We derive new finitized fermionic characters for the superconformal unitary minimal models by interpreting the RSOS configuration sums as fermi-gas partition functions. This extends to the supersymmetric case the method introduced by Warnaar for the Virasoro ... More
Graded parafermions: standard and quasi-particle basesJan 20 2002Feb 05 2002Two bases of states are presented for modules of the graded parafermionic conformal field theory associated to the coset $\osp(1,2)_k/\uh(1)$. The first one is formulated in terms of the two fundamental (i.e., lowest dimensional) parafermionic modes. ... More
ROSAT Observations of Compact Groups of GalaxiesDec 11 1994Dec 15 1994A search for X-ray emission from compact groups revealed detection from 8 out of the 12 HCG images extracted from the ROSAT public archive. For two of them the X-ray emission originates from galaxies in the group. On the contrary, three groups show an ... More
An analysis of the zero energy states in grapheneDec 09 2015Using the concept of complex non PT symmetric potential we study creation of zero energy states in graphene by a scalar potential. The admissible range of the potential parameter values for which such states exist has been examined. The situation with ... More
A faithful tensor space representation for the blob algebraDec 19 2003We show that a certain tensor space representation of the blob algebra (an affine Hecke algebra quotient) is faithful.
Investigating a Fluctuating-accretion Model for the Spectral-timing Properties of Accreting Black Hole SystemsDec 15 2005The fluctuating accretion model of Lyubarskii (1997) and its extension by Kotov et al. (2001), seeks to explain the spectral-timing properties of the X-ray variability of accreting black holes in terms of inward-propagating mass accretion fluctuations ... More
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
Jagged partitions and lattice pathsMay 19 2006A lattice-path description of $K$-restricted jagged partitions is presented. The corresponding lattice paths can have peaks only at even $x$ coordinate and the maximal value of the height cannot be larger than $K-1$. Its weight is twice that of the corresponding ... More
Parafermionic derivation of Andrews-type multiple sumsMay 11 2005A multi-parafermion basis of states for the Z_k parafermionic models is derived. Its generating function is constructed by elementary steps. It corresponds to the Andrews multiple-sum which enumerates partitions whose parts separated by the distance k-1 ... More
Parafermionic character formulaeJun 29 2000We study various aspects of parafermionic theories such as the precise field content, a description of a basis of states (that is, the counting of independent states in a freely generated highest-weight module) and the explicit expression of the parafermionic ...

Point interaction in dimension two and three as models of small scatterersJul 03 1996In addition to the conventional renormalized--coupling--constant picture, point interactions in dimension two and three are shown to model within a suitable energy range scattering on localized potentials, both attractive and repulsive.
Enhancement of Tc by Sr substitution for Ba in Hg-2212 superconductorApr 16 2003Sep 23 2003The Ba substitution by Sr has been studied in two Hg-2212 series: Hg2(Ba(1-y)Sr(y))2YCu2O8-d and Hg2(Ba(1-y)Sr(y))2(Y0.80Ca0.20)Cu2O8-d. In both series a Tc enhancement of about 40 K is observed when Sr substitutes Ba from y = 0 to y = 1.0. The y = 0 ... More
Characteristic Relations for Quantum MatricesFeb 20 1995Feb 24 1995General algebraic properties of the algebras of vector fields over quantum linear groups $GL_q(N)$ and $SL_q(N)$ are studied. These quantum algebras appears to be quite similar to the classical matrix algebra. In particular, quantum analogues of the characteristic ... More
