We study the time evolution property of a tagged particle in TASEP with the step-type initial condition. Calculated is the multi-time joint distribution function of ... More

Polynuclear growth model, GOE$^2$ and random matrix with deterministic sourceNov 17 2004We present a random matrix interpretation of the distribution functions which have appeared in the study of the one-dimensional polynuclear growth (PNG) model with external sources. It is shown that the distribution, GOE$^2$, which is defined as the square ... More

Fluctuations of a one-dimensional polynuclear growth model in a half spaceJul 01 2003We consider the multi-point equal time height fluctuations of a one-dimensional polynuclear growth model in a half space. For special values of the nucleation rate at the origin, the multi-layer version of the model is reduced to a determinantal process, ... More

Quark beta decay in an inhomogeneous chiral phase and cooling of hybrid starsSep 28 2012We discuss the cooling of hybrid stars by considering the neutrino emission from quark matter. As a current topic the appearance of various inhomogeneous chiral phases have been studied near the chiral transition. Here we consider the dual-chiral-density-wave ... More

Intelligent Unmanned Explorer for Deep Space ExplorationApr 30 2008asteroids or comets have received remarkable attention in the world. In small body explorations, especially, detailed in-situ surface exploration by tiny rover is one of effective and fruitful means and is expected to make strong contributions towards ... More
