Effective dynamics for particles coupled to a quantized scalar fieldFeb 19 2007Oct 01 2007We consider a system of N non-relativistic spinless quantum particles (``electrons'') interacting with a quantized scalar Bose field (whose excitations we call ``photons''). We examine the case when the velocity v of the electrons is small with respect ... More

Interference of Bose-Einstein condensates in momentum spaceMay 27 1999We suggest an experiment to investigate the linear superposition of two spatially separated Bose-Einstein condensates. Due to the coherent combination of the two wave functions, the dynamic structure factor, measurable through inelastic photon scattering ... More

On number of hypersurfaces containing projective curvesApr 04 1995Generalizing a classical lemma of Castelnuovo, we characterize rational normal curves (resp. linearly normal elliptic curves) as curves $C\subset \PP^n$ such that the number of linearly independent hypersurfaces $Z\supset C$ of given degree~$m$ is maximal ...

The power spectrum of the Lyman--$α$ cloudsSep 16 1997We estimate the 1--D power spectrum and the integral density of neighbors in 14 QSO lines of sight. We discuss their variation with respect to redshift and column density and compare the results with standard CDM models.

Bouncing Brane Cosmologies from Warped String CompactificationsMay 21 2002May 30 2002We study the cosmology induced on a brane probing a warped throat region in a Calabi-Yau compactification of type IIB string theory. For the case of a BPS D3-brane probing the Klebanov-Strassler warped deformed conifold, the cosmology described by a suitable ... More
