The basilar membrane is typically set into motion through airborne sound that displaces the middle ear and induces a pressure difference across the membrane. A second, ... More
Non-empirical nuclear energy functionals, pairing gaps and odd-even mass differencesJul 06 2009First, we briefly outline some aspects of the starting project to design non-empirical energy functionals based on low-momentum vacuum interactions and many-body perturbation theory. Second, we present results obtained within an approximation of such ... More
Non-empirical pairing functionalNov 27 2007Dec 07 2007The present contribution reports the first systematic finite-nucleus calculations performed using the Energy Density Functional method and a non-empirical pairing functional derived from low-momentum interactions. As a first step, the effects of Coulomb ... More
A Solution to the Polonyi Problem in the Minimum SUSY-GUTMar 16 1994We show that the Polonyi problem is solved in the minimum SUSY-GUT model in which a self-coupling strength for a heavy Higgs $\Sigma$, $\lambda\Sigma^{3}$, is very small $\lambda\sim 10^{-6}$. It is stressed that with this small $\lambda$ the mass of ... More
Spin physics in deep inelastic scattering: SummaryFeb 02 1999The problem of our understanding of the spin structure of the nucleon has been with us since the publication of the EMC measurements of the polarised structure function of the proton in 1987. In this talk a review of the results presented in Working Group ... More
Strong-coupling effects in the relaxation dynamics of ultracold neutral plasmasMar 01 2005We describe a hybrid molecular dynamics approach for the description of ultracold neutral plasmas, based on an adiabatic treatment of the electron gas and a full molecular dynamics simulation of the ions, which allows us to follow the long-time evolution ...
