Comment on "Percolation Thresholds in the Three-Dimensional Stick System"Apr 30 1998We discuss a classical mistake, made in earlier publications on the stick percolation problem in 3D, for generating the right isotropic configuration of sticks. We explain the observed systematic deviations from the excluded volume rule. New MC simulations ... More
Entanglement induced by spontaneous emission in spatially extended two-atom systemsFeb 17 2003We investigate the role of the collective antisymmetric state in entanglement creation by spontaneous emission in a system of two non-overlapping two-level atoms. We calculate and illustrate graphically populations of the collective atomic states and ... More
Dark periods and revivals of entanglement in a two qubit systemApr 08 2006In a recent paper Yu and Eberly [Phys. Rev. Lett. {\bf 93}, 140404 (2004)] have shown that two initially entangled and afterwards not interacting qubits can become completely disentangled in a finite time. We study transient entanglement between two qubits ... More
Multiple Commutator FormulasJul 15 2011Let A be a quasi-finite R-algebra (i.e., a direct limit of module finite algebras) with identity. Let I_i, i=0,...,m, be two-sided ideals of A, \GL_n(A,I_i) the principal congruence subgroup of level I_i in GL_n(A) and E_n(A,I_i) be the relative elementary ... More
Energy cascades and flux locality in physical scales of the 3D Navier-Stokes equationsJan 11 2011Mar 04 2011Rigorous estimates for the total - (kinetic) energy plus pressure - flux in R^3 are obtained from the three dimensional Navier-Stokes equations. The bounds are used to establish a condition - involving Taylor length scale and the size of the domain - ... More
The Minkowski Difference for Convex Polyhedra and Some its ApplicationsMar 08 2019The aim of the paper is to develop a unified algebraical approach to representing the Minkowski difference for convex polyhedra. Namely, there is proposed an exact analytical formulas of the Minkowski difference for convex polyhedra with different representations. ... More
Backreactions in Superinflationary CosmologiesJan 02 1998We examine Jordan-Brans-Dicke theories with a linear potential for the scalar field by means of a stochastic approach. The backreaction of the scalar field fluctuations on the classical background is described. The analysis is concentrated on those values ... More
