Second-order temporal interference of two independent light beams at an asymmetrical beam splitterAug 29 2016The second-order temporal interference of classical and nonclassical light at an asymmetrical beam splitter is discussed based on two-photon interference in Feynman's path integral theory. The visibility of the second-order interference pattern is determined ... More
The Inversion Symmetry of the WDVV Equations and Tau FunctionsDec 28 2010May 05 2013For two solutions of the WDVV equations that are related by the inversion symmetry, we show that the associated principal hierarchies of integrable systems are related by a reciprocal transformation, and the tau functions of the hierarchies are related ...

Long time dynamics of defocusing energy critical 3 + 1 dimensional wave equation with potential in the radial caseMar 22 2014Using channel of energy inequalities developed by T.Duyckaerts, C.Kenig and F.Merle, we prove that, modulo a free radiation, any finite energy radial solution to the defocusing energy critical wave equation with radial potential in 3 + 1 dimensions converges ...
