Elementary n-Lie algebrasNov 16 2005Nov 19 2005In this paper, we mainly study some properties of elementary n-Lie algebras, and prove some necessary and sufficient conditions for elementary n-Lie algebras, we also give the relations between elementary n-algebras and E-algebras.

Homogeneous Rota-Baxter operators on $3$-Lie algebra $A_ω$Dec 07 2015In the paper we study homogeneous Rota-Baxter operators with weight zero on the infinite dimensional simple $3$-Lie algebra $A_{\omega}$ over a field $F$ ( $ch F=0$ ) which is realized by an associative commutative algebra $A$ and a derivation $\Delta$ ...

Test one to test many: a unified approach to quantum benchmarksNov 28 2017Apr 24 2018Quantum benchmarks are routinely used to validate the experimental demonstration of quantum information protocols. Many relevant protocols, however, involve an infinite set of input states, of which only a finite subset can be used to test the quality ... More

$α$ Clustering slightly above ${}^{100}$Sn in the Light of the New Experimental Data on the Superallowed $α$ DecayNov 26 2018The recently observed $\alpha$-decay chain ${}^{108}\text{Xe}\to{}^{104}\text{Te}\to{}^{100}\text{Sn}$ [K.~Auranen \emph{et al.}, Phys.\ Rev.\ Lett.\ {\bf121}, 182501 (2018)] could provide valuable information on the $\alpha$ clustering in even-even nuclei ...
