Observation of a narrow structure at $W\sim 1.68$ GeV in the excitation functions of some photon- and pion-induced reactions may signal a new narrow isospin-1/2 $N(1685)$ resonance. New data on the $\gamma N \to \pi \eta N$ reactions from GRAAL seems to reveal the signals of both $N^+(1685)$ and $N^0(1685)$ resonances. Read More

In this paper we investigate how so-called quorum-sensing networks can be de-synchronized. Such networks, which arise in many important application fields such as systems biology, are characterized by the fact that direct communication between network nodes is superimposed to communication with a shared, environmental, variable. In particular, we provide a new sufficient condition ensuring that the trajectories of these quorum-sensing networks diverge from their synchronous evolution. Read More

The proton is composed of quarks and gluons, bound by the most elusive mechanism of strong interaction called confinement. In this work, the dynamics of quarks and gluons are investigated using deeply virtual Compton scattering (DVCS): produced by a multi-GeV electron, a highly virtual photon scatters off the proton which subsequently radiates a high energy photon. Similarly to holography, measuring not only the magnitude but also the phase of the DVCS amplitude allows to perform 3D images of the internal structure of the proton. Read More

We report the first longitudinal/transverse separation of the deeply virtual exclusive $\pi^0$ electroproduction cross section off the neutron and coherent deuteron. The corresponding four structure functions $d\sigma_L/dt$, $d\sigma_T/dt$, $d\sigma_{LT}/dt$ and $d\sigma_{TT}/dt$ are extracted as a function of the momentum transfer to the recoil system at $Q^2$=1.75 GeV$^2$ and $x_B$=0.

The main goal of this paper is to investigate the order reduction phenomenon that appears in the integral deferred correction (InDC) methods based on implicit-explicit (IMEX) Runge-Kutta (R-K) schemes when applied to a class of stiff problems characterized by a small positive parameter $\varepsilon$, called singular perturbation problems (SPPs). In particular, an error analysis is presented for these implicit-explicit InDC (InDC-IMEX) methods when applied to SPPs. In our error estimate, we expand the global error in powers of $\varepsilon$ and show that its coefficients are global errors of the corresponding method applied to a sequence of differential algebraic systems.

In this paper we consider the development of Implicit-Explicit (IMEX) Runge-Kutta schemes for hyperbolic systems with multiscale relaxation. In such systems the scaling depends on an additional parameter which modifies the nature of the asymptotic behavior which can be either hyperbolic or parabolic. Because of the multiple scalings, standard IMEX Runge-Kutta methods for hyperbolic systems with relaxation loose their efficiency and a different approach should be adopted to guarantee asymptotic preservation in stiff regimes.

We present a novel arbitrary high order accurate central WENO spatial reconstruction procedure (CWENO) for the solution of nonlinear systems of hyperbolic conservation laws on fixed and moving unstructured simplex meshes in two and three space dimensions. Starting from the given cell averages of a function on a triangular or tetrahedral control volume and its neighbors, the nonlinear CWENO reconstruction yields a high order accurate and essentially non-oscillatory polynomial that is defined everywhere in the cell. Compared to other WENO schemes on unstructured meshes, the total stencil size is the minimum possible one, as in classical point-wise WENO schemes of Jiang and Shu. Read More

Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) are increasingly being seen as a means of mitigating the pressing concerns of traffic-related pollution. While hybrid vehicles are usually designed with the objective of minimising fuel consumption, in this paper we propose engine management strategies that also take into account environmental effects of the vehicles to pedestrians outside of the vehicles. Specifically, we present optimisation based engine energy management strategies for PHEVs, that attempt to minimise the environmental impact of pedestrians along the route of the vehicle, while taking account of route dependent uncertainties.

We review our analytical and numerical results obtained on the microscopic Follow-The-Leader (FTL) many particle approximation of one-dimensional conservation laws. More precisely, we introduce deterministic particle schemes for the Hughes model for pedestrian movements and for two vehicular traffic models, that are the scalar Lighthill-Whitham-Richards model (LWR) and the $2\times2$ system Aw-Rascle-Zhang model (ARZ). Their approximation is performed by a set of ODEs, determining the motion of platoons of possible fractional vehicles or pedestrians seen as particles. Read More

We review recent results and present new ones on a deterministic follow-the-leader particle approximation of first and second order models for traffic flow and pedestrian movements. We start by constructing the particle scheme for the first order Lighthill-Whitham-Richards (LWR) model for traffic flow. The approximation is performed by a set of ODEs following the position of discretised vehicles seen as moving particles. Read More

We present deeply virtual $\pi^0$ electroproduction cross-section measurements at $x_B$=0.36 and three different $Q^2$--values ranging from 1.5 to 2 GeV$^2$, obtained from experiment E07-007 that ran in the Hall A at Jefferson Lab. Read More

In this paper, we propose a mass conservative semi-Lagrangian finite difference scheme for multi-dimensional problems without dimensional splitting. The semi-Lagrangian scheme, based on tracing characteristics backward in time from grid points, does not necessarily conserve the total mass. To ensure mass conservation, we propose a conservative correction procedure based on a flux difference form. Read More

MeV-GeV dark matter (DM) is theoretically well motivated but remarkably unexplored. This proposal presents the MeV-GeV DM discovery potential for a $\sim$1 m$^3$ segmented CsI(Tl) scintillator detector placed downstream of the Hall A beam-dump at Jefferson Lab, receiving up to 10$^{22}$ electrons-on-target (EOT) in 285 days. This experiment (Beam-Dump eXperiment or BDX) would be sensitive to elastic DM-electron and to inelastic DM scattering at the level of 10 counts per year, reaching the limit of the neutrino irreducible background.

This paper is concerned with the study of synchronization and consensus phenomena in complex networks of diffusively-coupled nodes subject to external disturbances. Specifically, we make use of stochastic Lyapunov functions to provide conditions for synchronization and consensus for networks of nonlinear, diffusively coupled nodes, where noise diffusion is not just additive but it depends on the nodes' state. The sufficient condition we provide, wich links together network topology, coupling strength and noise diffusion, offers two interesting interpretations. Read More

We present new conditions to obtain synchronization and consensus patterns in complex network systems. The key idea is to exploit symmetries of the nodes' vector fields to induce a desired synchronization/consensus pattern, where nodes are clustered in different groups each converging towards a different synchronized evolution. We show that the new conditions we present offer a systematic methodology to design a distributed network controller able to drive a network of interest towards a desired synchronization/consensus pattern. Read More

In this paper, we consider a finite difference grid-based semi-Lagrangian approach in solving the Vlasov-Poisson (VP) system. Many of existing methods are based on dimensional splitting, which decouples the problem into solving linear advection problems, see {\em Cheng and Knorr, Journal of Computational Physics, 22(1976)}. However, such splitting is subject to the splitting error. Read More

In this paper, we present new results for the synchronization and consensus of networks described by Ito stochastic differential equations. From the methodological viewpoint, our results are based on the use of stochastic Lyapunov functions. This approach allowed us to consider networks where nodes dynamics can be nonlinear and non-autonomous and where noise is not just additive but rather its diffusion can be nonlinear and depend on the network state.

In this paper we present a new approach to the solution to a generalized version of Hughes' models for pedestrian movements based on a follow-the-leader many particle approximation. In particular, we provide a rigorous global existence result under a smallness assumption on the initial data ensuring that the trace of the solution along the turning curve is zero for all positive times. We also focus shortly on the approximation procedure for symmetric data and Riemann type data. Read More

Current and future astroparticle physics experiments are operated or are being built to observe highly energetic particles, high energy electromagnetic radiation and gravitational waves originating from all kinds of cosmic sources. The data volumes taken by the experiments are large and expected to grow significantly during the coming years. This is a result of advanced research possibilities and improved detector technology.

A new class of high-order accuracy numerical methods for the BGK model of the Boltzmann equation is presented. The schemes are based on a semi-lagrangian formulation of the BGK equation; time integration is dealt with DIRK (Diagonally Implicit Runge Kutta) and BDF methods; the latter turn out to be accurate and computationally less expensive than the former. Numerical results and examples show that the schemes are reliable and efficient for the investigation of both rarefied and fluid regimes in gasdynamics. Read More

The parity-violating asymmetries between a longitudinally-polarized electron beam and an unpolarized deuterium target have been measured recently. The measurement covered two kinematic points in the deep inelastic scattering region and five in the nucleon resonance region. We provide here details of the experimental setup, data analysis, and results on all asymmetry measurements including parity-violating electron asymmetries and those of inclusive pion production and beam-normal asymmetries.

MeV-GeV dark matter (DM) is theoretically well motivated but remarkably unexplored. This Letter of Intent presents the MeV-GeV DM discovery potential for a 1 m$^3$ segmented plastic scintillator detector placed downstream of the beam-dump at one of the high intensity JLab experimental Halls, receiving up to 10$^{22}$ electrons-on-target (EOT) in a one-year period. This experiment (Beam-Dump eXperiment or BDX) is sensitive to DM-nucleon elastic scattering at the level of a thousand counts per year, with very low threshold recoil energies ($\sim$1 MeV), and limited only by reducible cosmogenic backgrounds.

In this Technical Design Report (TDR) we describe the SuperB detector that was to be installed on the SuperB e+e- high luminosity collider. The SuperB asymmetric collider, which was to be constructed on the Tor Vergata campus near the INFN Frascati National Laboratory, was designed to operate both at the Upsilon(4S) center-of-mass energy with a luminosity of 10^{36} cm^{-2}s^{-1} and at the tau/charm production threshold with a luminosity of 10^{35} cm^{-2}s^{-1}. This high luminosity, producing a data sample about a factor 100 larger than present B Factories, would allow investigation of new physics effects in rare decays, CP Violation and Lepton Flavour Violation.

In this paper we give an overview of Implicit-Explicit Runge-Kutta schemes applied to hyperbolic systems with stiff relaxation. In particular, we focus on some recent results on the uniform accuracy for hyperbolic systems with stiff relaxation [6], and hyperbolic system with diffusive relaxation [7, 5, 4]. In the latter case, we present an original application to a model problem arising in Extended Thermodynamics. Read More

Temporal networks, i.e., networks in which the interactions among a set of elementary units change over time, can be modelled in terms of time-varying graphs, which are time-ordered sequences of graphs over a set of nodes. Read More

We report on parity-violating asymmetries in the nucleon resonance region measured using $5 - 6$ GeV longitudinally polarized electrons scattering off an unpolarized deuterium target. These results are the first parity-violating asymmetry data in the resonance region beyond the $\Delta(1232)$, and provide a verification of quark-hadron duality in the nucleon electroweak $\gamma Z$ interference structure functions at the (10-15)% level. The results are of particular interest to models relevant for calculating the $\gamma Z$ box-diagram corrections to elastic parity-violating electron scattering measurements. Read More

A search for neutrino-induced muons in correlation with a selection of 40 gamma-ray bursts that occurred in 2007 has been performed with the ANTARES neutrino telescope. During that period, the detector consisted of 5 detection lines. The ANTARES neutrino telescope is sensitive to TeV--PeV neutrinos that are predicted from gamma-ray bursts. Read More

We study solutions to nonlinear hyperbolic systems with fully nonlinear relaxation terms in the limit of, both, infinitely stiff relaxation and arbitrary late time. In this limit, the dynamics is governed by effective systems of parabolic type, with possibly degenerate and/or fully nonlinear diffusion terms. For this class of problems, we develop here an implicit-explicit method based on Runge-Kutta discretization in time, and we use this method in order to investigate several examples of interest in compressible fluid dynamics.

We have measured the beam-normal single-spin asymmetry $A_n$ in the elastic scattering of 1-3 GeV transversely polarized electrons from $^1$H and for the first time from $^4$He, $^{12}$C, and $^{208}$Pb. For $^1$H, $^4$He and $^{12}$C, the measurements are in agreement with calculations that relate $A_n$ to the imaginary part of the two-photon exchange amplitude including inelastic intermediate states. Surprisingly, the $^{208}$Pb result is significantly smaller than the corresponding prediction using the same formalism. Read More

The data taken with the ANTARES neutrino telescope from 2007 to 2010, a total live time of 863 days, are used to measure the oscillation parameters of atmospheric neutrinos. Muon tracks are reconstructed with energies as low as 20 GeV. Neutrino oscillations will cause a suppression of vertical upgoing muon neutrinos of such energies crossing the Earth. Read More

We present the results of the first search for gravitational wave bursts associated with high energy neutrinos. Together, these messengers could reveal new, hidden sources that are not observed by conventional photon astronomy, particularly at high energy. Our search uses neutrinos detected by the underwater neutrino telescope ANTARES in its 5 line configuration during the period January - September 2007, which coincided with the fifth and first science runs of LIGO and Virgo, respectively.

The ANTARES neutrino telescope, located 40km off the coast of Toulon in the Mediterranean Sea at a mooring depth of about 2475m, consists of twelve detection lines equipped typically with 25 storeys. Every storey carries three optical modules that detect Cherenkov light induced by charged secondary particles (typically muons) coming from neutrino interactions. As these lines are flexible structures fixed to the sea bed and held taut by a buoy, sea currents cause the lines to move and the storeys to rotate. Read More

An Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) was moored at the deep-sea site of the ANTARES neutrino telescope near Toulon, France, thus providing a unique opportunity to compare high-resolution acoustic and optical observations between 70 and 170 m above the sea bed at 2475 m. The ADCP measured downward vertical currents of magnitudes up to 0.03 m s-1 in late winter and early spring 2006. Read More

The ANTARES telescope is well-suited to detect neutrinos produced in astrophysical transient sources as it can observe a full hemisphere of the sky at all times with a high duty cycle. Radio-loud active galactic nuclei with jets pointing almost directly towards the observer, the so-called blazars, are particularly attractive potential neutrino point sources. The all-sky monitor LAT on board the Fermi satellite probes the variability of any given gamma-ray bright blazar in the sky on time scales of hours to months. Read More

In this paper we present a one dimensional second order accurate method to solve Elliptic equations with discontinuous coefficients on an arbitrary interface. Second order accuracy for the first derivative is obtained as well. The method is based on the Ghost Fluid Method, making use of ghost points on which the value is defined by suitable interface conditions. Read More

In this paper we present a multigrid approach to solve the Poisson equation in arbitrary domain (identified by a level set function) and mixed boundary conditions. The discretization is based on finite difference scheme and ghost-cell method. This multigrid strategy can be applied also to more general problems where a non-eliminated boundary condition approach is used. Read More

The group velocity of light has been measured at eight different wavelengths between 385 nm and 532 nm in the Mediterranean Sea at a depth of about 2.2 km with the ANTARES optical beacon systems. A parametrisation of the dependence of the refractive index on wavelength based on the salinity, pressure and temperature of the sea water at the ANTARES site is in good agreement with these measurements.

We consider Implicit-Explicit (IMEX) Runge-Kutta (R-K) schemes for hyperbolic systems with stiff relaxation in the so-called diffusion limit. In such regime the system relaxes towards a convection-diffusion equation. The first objective of the paper is to show that traditional partitioned IMEX R-K schemes will relax to an explicit scheme for the limit equation with no need of modification of the original system.

Magnetic monopoles are predicted in various unified gauge models and could be produced at intermediate mass scales. Their detection in a neutrino telescope is facilitated by the large amount of light emitted compared to that from muons. This paper reports on a search for upgoing relativistic magnetic monopoles with the ANTARES neutrino telescope using a data set of 116 days of live time taken from December 2007 to December 2008.

In this paper we extend to a generic class of piecewise smooth dynamical systems a fundamental tool for the analysis of convergence of smooth dynamical systems: contraction theory. We focus on switched systems satisfying Caratheodory conditions for the existence and unicity of a solution. After generalizing the classical definition of contraction to this class of dynamical systems, we give sufficient conditions for global exponential convergence of their trajectories. Read More

Spectral centrality measures allow to identify influential individuals in social groups, to rank Web pages by their popularity, and even to determine the impact of scientific researches. The centrality score of a node within a network crucially depends on the entire pattern of connections, so that the usual approach is to compute the node centralities once the network structure is assigned. We face here with the inverse problem, that is, we study how to modify the centrality scores of the nodes by acting on the structure of a given network. Read More

Results are presented of a search for cosmic sources of high energy neutrinos with the ANTARES neutrino telescope. The data were collected during 2007 and 2008 using detector configurations containing between 5 and 12 detection lines. The integrated live time of the analyzed data is 304 days. Read More

The parity-violating cross-section asymmetry in the elastic scattering of polarized electrons from unpolarized protons has been measured at a four-momentum transfer squared Q2 = 0.624 GeV and beam energy E =3.48 GeV to be A_PV = -23. Read More

Real complex systems are inherently time-varying. Thanks to new communication systems and novel technologies, it is today possible to produce and analyze social and biological networks with detailed information on the time of occurrence and duration of each link. However, standard graph metrics introduced so far in complex network theory are mainly suited for static graphs, i. Read More
