We give a full nonlinear numerical treatment of time-dependent 5d braneworld geometry, which is determined self-consistently by potentials for the scalar field in the bulk and at two orbifold branes, supplemented by boundary conditions at the branes. We describe the BraneCode, an algorithm which we designed to solve the dynamical equations numerically. We applied the BraneCode to braneworld models and found several novel phenomena of the brane dynamics. Starting with static warped geometry with...

Few-electron systems confined in two-dimensional parabolic quantum dots at high magnetic fields are studied by the Hartree-Fock (HF) and exact diagonalization methods. A generalized multicenter Gaussian basis is proposed in the HF method. A comparison of the HF and exact results allows us to discuss the relevance of the symmetry of the charge density distribution for the accuracy of the HF method. It is shown that the energy estimates obtained with the broken-symmetry HF wave functions become...

Using aerogel as radiator and multianode PMTs for photon detection, a proximity focusing Cherenkov ring imaging detector has been constructed and tested in the KEK $\pi$2 beam. The aim is to experimentally study the basic parameters such as resolution of the single photon Cherenkov angle and number of detected photons per ring. The resolution obtained is well approximated by estimates of contributions from pixel size and emission point uncertainty. The number of detected photons per Cherenkov...

An apparatus and method for measuring strain in an optical fiber using the spectral shift of Rayleigh scattered light. The interference pattern produced by an air gap reflector and backscattered radiation is measured. Using Fourier Transforms, the spectrum of any section of fiber can be extracted. Cross correlation with an unstrained measurement produces a correlation peak. The location of the correlation peak indicates the strain level in the selected portion of optical fiber.

We discuss a class of phantom ($p < - \varrho$) cosmological models. Except for phantom we admit various forms of standard types of matter and discuss the problem of singularities for these cosmologies. The singularities are different from those of standard matter cosmology since they appear for infinite values of the scale factor. We also find an interesting relation between the phantom models and standard matter models which is like the duality symmetry of string cosmology.

We begin by reviewing the results on the decay of unstable D-branes in type II string theory, and the open-closed string duality proposal that arises from these studies. We then apply this proposal to the study of tachyon driven cosmology, namely cosmological solutions describing the decay of unstable space filling D-branes. This naturally gives rise to a time reversal invariant bounce solution with positive spatial curvature. In the absence of a bulk cosmological constant the universe always...

The microscopic properties of a single vortex in a dilute superfluid Fermi gas at zero temperature are examined within the framework of self-consistent Bogoliubov-de Gennes theory. Using only physical parameters as input, we study the pair potential, the density, the energy, and the current distribution. Comparison of the numerical results with analytical expressions clearly indicates that the energy of the vortex is governed by the zero-temperature BCS coherence length.

We study the ground state properties of a quantum antiferromagnet in the kagome lattice in the presence of a magnetic field, paying particular attention to the stability of the plateau at magnetization 1/3 of saturation. While the plateau is reinforced by certain deformations of the lattice, like the introduction of structural defect lines and against an Ising anisotropy, ground state correlations are seen to be quite different and the undistorted SU(2) case appears to be rather special.

Recent measurements of the pi^+pi^- invariant mass distribution at RHIC show a shifted peak for the rho meson in 100A GeV in peripheral Au + Au and even in p + p collisions. A recent theoretical study based on a picture of in-medium production rates of pions, showed that a large shift could result from a combination of the Boltzmann factor and the collisional broadening of the rho. Here we argue that the two-pion density of states is the appropriate quantity if one assumes a sudden break-up of...

In the non-exceptional case the plane waves are stable to (spatially homogeneous) vacuum perturbations as well as a restricted set of matter perturbations. In the exceptional case we always find an instability. Also we consider the Milne universe in arbitrary...

Most of these products are, however, photodissociated during the PPN phase if the wind is smooth. By contrast, if the wind is clumpy, possibly because of clumpiness in the AGB atmosphere, then many...

For an $SU(2)\times U(1)$-invariant $S^3$ boundary the classical Dirichlet problem of Riemannian quantum gravity is studied for positive-definite regular solutions of the Einstein equations with a negative cosmological constant within biaxial Bianchi-IX metrics containing bolts, i.e., within the family of Taub-Bolt-anti-de Sitter (Taub-Bolt-AdS) metrics. Such metrics are obtained from the two-parameter Taub-NUT-anti-de Sitter family. The condition of regularity requires them to have only one...

In a space-time $M$ with a Killing vector field $\xi^a$ which is either everywhere timelike or everywhere spacelike, the collection of all trajectories of $\xi^a$ gives a 3-dimension space $S$. Besides the symmetry-reduced action from that of Einstein-Hilbert, an alternative action of the fields on $S$ is also proposed, which gives the same fields equations as those reduced from the vacuum Einstein equation on $M$.

We calculate the ring of differential operators on some singular affine varieties (intersecting stacks, a point on a singular curve or an orbifold). Our results support the proposed connection of the ring of differential operators with geometry of D-branes in (bosonic) string theory. In particular, the answer does know about the resolution of singularities in accordance with the string theory predictions.

We prove, under certain conditions, the existence of zeros for a weakly continuous operator on a paracompact topological space into the dual of a Banach space.

From the equilibrium condition $\delta S=0$ applied to an isolated thermodynamic system of electrically charged particles and the fundamental equation of thermodynamics ($dU = T dS-(\mathbf{f}\cdot d\mathbf{r})$) subject to a new procedure, it is obtained the Lorentz's force together with non-inertial terms of mechanical nature. Other well known ponderomotive forces, like the Stern-Gerlach's force and a force term related to the Einstein-de Haas's effect are also obtained. In addition, a new...

This week Sue Lawley's castaway is the cricket commentator Henry Blofeld. Blofeld's become known as much for his musings on pigeons, planes, double decker buses, tea ladies, cakes and his catchphrase 'my dear old thing' as he is for his cricket commentary. As a teenager he showed great promise as a cricketer and was even thought good enough to play for England until his dreams were dashed after a serious accident when his bike hit a bus. He dropped out of Cambridge and toyed with the idea of a...

The Simple Acoustic Decision Aid (SADA) is an atmospheric acoustic propagation model which incorporates the fast computational speed of a ray model with some properties of the full wave models. The original design of SADA was for use in an acoustic sensor system where computer speed and battery life is very limited. SADA bas been coupled with the graphical user interface used for the Scanning Fast-Field Program (SCAFFIP) I. The graphical interface allows for the user to setup input profiles for...
