The manner in which Aircraft Communications, Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) is being used has significantly changed over time. Whilst originally used by commercial airliners to track their flights and provide automated timekeeping on crew, today it serves as a multi-purpose air-ground data link for many aviation stakeholders including private jet owners, state actors and military. Since ACARS messages are still mostly sent in the clear over a wireless channel, any sensitive information sent with ACARS can potentially lead to a privacy breach for users. Read More

For time-dependent partial differential equations, parallel-in-time integration using the "parallel full approximation scheme in space and time" (PFASST) is a promising way to accelerate existing space-parallel approaches beyond their scaling limits. Inspired by the classical Parareal method and multigrid ideas, PFASST allows to integrate multiple time-steps simultaneously using a space-time hierarchy of spectral deferred correction sweeps. While many use cases and benchmarks exist, a solid and reliable mathematical foundation is still missing. Read More

The Polarized Electrons for Polarized Positrons experiment at the injector of the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility has demonstrated for the first time the efficient transfer of polarization from electrons to positrons produced by the polarized bremsstrahlung radiation induced by a polarized electron beam in a high-$Z$ target. Positron polarization up to 82\% have been measured for an initial electron beam momentum of 8.19~MeV/$c$, limited only by the electron beam polarization. Read More

For the numerical solution of time-dependent partial differential equations, time-parallel methods have recently shown to provide a promising way to extend prevailing strong-scaling limits of numerical codes. One of the most complex methods in this field is the "Parallel Full Approximation Scheme in Space and Time" (PFASST). PFASST already shows promising results for many use cases and many more is work in progress. Read More

In-plane thermal conduction and phonon transport in both single-crystalline and polycrystalline Si two-dimensional phononic crystal (PnC) nanostructures were investigated at room temperature. The impact of phononic patterning on thermal conductivity was larger in polycrystalline Si PnCs than in single-crystalline Si PnCs. The difference in the impact is attributed to the difference in the thermal phonon mean free path (MFP) distribution induced by grain boundary scattering in the two materials. Read More

The flashes from meteoroid impacts on the Moon are useful in determining the flux of impactors with masses as low as a few tens of grams. A routine monitoring program at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center has recorded over 300 impacts since 2006. A selection of 126 flashes recorded during periods of photometric skies was analyzed, creating the largest and most homogeneous dataset of lunar impact flashes to date. Read More

Coherent energy transfer in pigment-protein complexes has been studied by mapping the quantum network to a kinetic network. This gives an analytic way to find parameter values for optimal transfer efficiency. In the case of the Fenna-Matthews-Olson (FMO) complex, the comparison of quantum and kinetic network evolution shows that dephasing-assisted energy transfer is driven by the two-site coherent interaction, and not system-wide coherence.

F\"orster's theory of resonant energy transfer (FRET) predicts the strength and range of exciton transport between separated molecules. We introduce an exactly soluble model for FRET which reproduces F\"orster's results as well as incorporating quantum coherence effects. As an application the model is used to analyze a system composed of quantum dots and the protein bacteriorhodopsin. Read More

We study the regularized average Renyi output entropy $\bar{S}_{r}^{\reg}$ of quantum channels. This quantity gives information about the average noisiness of the channel output arising from a typical, highly entangled input state in the limit of infinite dimensions. We find a closed expression for $\beta_{r}^{\reg}$, a quantity which we conjecture to be equal to $\Srreg$. Read More

Hastings recently provided a proof of the existence of channels which violate the additivity conjecture for minimal output entropy. In this paper we present an expanded version of Hastings' proof. In addition to a careful elucidation of the details of the proof, we also present bounds for the minimal dimensions needed to obtain a counterexample. Read More

We give an intuitive method--using local, cyclic replica symmetry--to isolate exponential tree decay in truncated (connected) correlations. We give an expansion and use the symmetry to show that all terms vanish, except those displaying {\em replica condensation}. The condensation property ensures exponential tree decay. Read More

We present JHK' photometric measurements of 78 objects mostly consisting of proto-planetary nebula candidates. Photometric magnitudes are determined by means of imaging and aperture photometry. Unlike the observations with a photometer with a fixed-sized beam, the method of imaging photometry permits accurate derivation of photometric values because the target sources can be correctly identified and confusion with neighboring sources can be easily avoided.
