Local Electronic Structure and High Temperature SuperconductivityFeb 11 1999It is argued that a new mechanism and many-body theory of superconductivity are required for doped correlated insulators. Here we review the essential features of and the experimental support for such a theory, in which the physics is driven by the kinetic ... More
Gravitational waves in an expanding UniverseAug 03 1998We study the tensorial modes of the two-fluid model, where one of this fluids has an equation of state $p = - \rho/3$ (variable cosmological constant, cosmic string fluid, texture) or $p = - \rho$ (cosmological constant), while the other fluid is an ordinary ...
