About the rapidity and helicity distributions of the W bosons produced at LHCJul 28 2017Dec 14 2017$W$ bosons are produced at LHC from a forward-backward symmetric initial state. Their decay to a charged lepton and a neutrino has a strong spin analysing power. The combination of these effects results in characteristic distributions of the pseudorapidity ... More

Ghost-Stochastic Resonance in a Unidirectionally Coupled and Small-World NetworksOct 27 2015Ghost-stochastic resonance is a noise-induced resonance at a missing fundamental frequency in the input signal. In this paper we investigate the features of ghost-stochastic resonance in a unidirectionally coupled network and small-world network with ... More

Signal amplification by unidirectional coupling of oscillatorsApr 22 2014We report our investigation on the input signal amplification in unidirectionally coupled monostable Duffing oscillators in one- and two-dimensions with first oscillator alone driven by a weak periodic signal. Applying a perturbation theory we obtain ... More
