We propose a set of general coupling conditions to select a coupling profile (a set of coupling matrices) from the linear flow matrix (LFM) of dynamical systems for realizing global stability of complete synchronization (CS) in identical systems and robustness to parameter perturbation. The coupling matrices define the coupling links between any two oscillators in a network that consists of a conventional diffusive coupling link (self-coupling link) as well as a cross-coupling link. The addition of a selective cross-coupling link in particular plays constructive roles that ensure the global stability of synchrony and furthermore enables robustness of synchrony against small to non-small parameter perturbation.

We present, for the first time, simultaneous determination of shear viscosity ($\eta$) and entropy density ($s$) and thus, $\eta/s$ for equilibrated nuclear systems from $A$ $\sim$ 30 to $A$ $\sim$ 208 at different temperatures. At finite temperature, $\eta$ is estimated by utilizing the $\gamma$ decay of the isovector giant dipole resonance populated via fusion evaporation reaction, while $s$ is evaluated from the nuclear level density parameter (${a}$) and nuclear temperature ($T$), determined precisely by the simultaneous measurements of the evaporated neutron energy spectra and the compound nuclear angular momenta. The transport parameter $\eta$ and the thermodynamic parameter $s$ both increase with temperature resulting in a mild decrease of $\eta$/$s$ with temperature. Read More

Data assimilation is widely used to improve flood forecasting capability, especially through parameter inference requiring statistical information on the uncertain input parameters (upstream discharge, friction coefficient) as well as on the variability of the water level and its sensitivity with respect to the inputs. For particle filter or ensemble Kalman filter, stochastically estimating probability density function and covariance matrices from a Monte Carlo random sampling requires a large ensemble of model evaluations, limiting their use in real-time application. To tackle this issue, fast surrogate models based on Polynomial Chaos and Gaussian Process can be used to represent the spatially distributed water level in place of solving the shallow water equations.

It has recently been reported that certain thin timelike shells undergo oscillatory motion in AdS. In this paper, we compute two-point function of a probe field in the geodesic approximation in such an oscillating shell background. We confirm that the two-point function exhibits an oscillatory behaviour following the motion of the shell. Read More

Taking an effective $\rho\pi\pi$ interaction, the self energy of $\rho$ at finite temperature in an arbitrary external magnetic field is calculated using the real time formalism of thermal field theory. The effect of temperature and magnetic field on the in-medium spectral functions are studied. The effective mass and dispersion relations are evaluated from the pole of the complete $\rho$ propagator. Read More

The cross section of the exclusive $\eta$ electroproduction reaction $ep\to e^\prime p^\prime \eta$ was measured at Jefferson Lab with a 5.75-GeV electron beam and the CLAS detector. Differential cross sections $d^4\sigma/dtdQ^2dx_Bd\phi_\eta$ and structure functions $\sigma_U = \sigma_T+\epsilon\sigma_L, \sigma_{TT}$ and $\sigma_{LT}$, as functions of $t$ were obtained over a wide range of $Q^2$ and $x_B$.

Machine-learning techniques have been recently used with spectacular results to generate artefacts such as music or text. However, these techniques are still unable to capture and generate artefacts that are convincingly structured. In this paper we present an approach to generate structured musical sequences.

Measurements of the linearly-polarized photon beam asymmetry $\Sigma$ for photoproduction from the proton of $\eta$ and $\eta^\prime$ mesons are reported. A linearly-polarized tagged photon beam produced by coherent bremsstrahlung was incident on a cryogenic hydrogen target within the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer. Results are presented for the $\gamma p \to \eta p$ reaction for incident photon energies from 1. Read More

We introduce generalized versions of complex Scarf and Morse-type potentials that con- tain energy-dependent parameters. PT -symmetry and pseudo-hermiticity of the associated quantum systems are discussed, and a modified orthogonality relation and pseudo-norm are constructed. We show that despite energy-dependence, our systems can admit real energy spectra and normalizable solutions of bound-state type. Read More

This is a self-contained introduction to the applications of ergodic theory of nonsingular (also known as quasi-invariant) group actions and the structure theorem for finitely generated abelian groups on the extreme values of stationary symmetric stable random fields indexed by $\mathbb{Z}^d$. It is based on a mini course given in the Eighth Lectures on Probability and Stochastic Processes (held in the Bangalore Centre of Indian Statistical Institute during December 6-10, 2013) except that a few recent references have been added in the concluding part. This article is a survey of existing work and the proofs are therefore skipped or briefly outlined. Read More

We explore the effect of interplay of interfacial noise and curvature driven dynamics in a binary spin system. An appropriate model is the generalised two dimensional voter model proposed earlier (J. Phys. Read More

We construct energy-dependent potentials for which the Schroedinger equations admit solu- tions in terms of exceptional orthogonal polynomials. Our method of construction is based on certain point transformations, applied to the equations of exceptional Hermite, Jacobi and Laguerre polynomials. We present several examples of boundary-value problems with energy-dependent potentials that admit a discrete spectrum and the corresponding normalizable solutions in closed form. Read More

A wealth of data from the Herschel and Planck satellites and now from ALMA, revealing cold dust thermal emission, is available for astronomical environments ranging from interstellar clouds, cold clumps, circumstellar envelops, and protoplanetary disks. The interpretation of these observations relies on the understanding and modeling of cold dust emission and on the knowledge of the dust optical properties. The aim of this work is to provide astronomers with a set of spectroscopic data of realistic interstellar dust analogues that can be used to interpret the observations. Read More

The volume inside a Ryu-Takayanagi surface has been conjectured to be related to the complexity of subregions of the boundary field theory. Here, we study the behaviour of this volume analytically, when the entangling surface has a strip geometry. We perform systematic expansions in the low and high temperature regimes for AdS-Schwarzschild and RN-AdS black holes. Read More

An array of excitable Josephson junctions under global mean-field interaction and a common periodic forcing shows emergence of two important classes of coherent dynamics, librational and rotational motion in the weaker and stronger coupling limits, respectively, with transitions to chimeralike states and clustered states in the intermediate coupling range. In this numerical study, we use the Kuramoto complex order parameter and introduce two measures, a libration index and a clustering index to characterize the dynamical regimes and their transition and locate them in a parameter plane.

The discovery of a superconducting phase in sulfur hydride under high pressure with a critical temperature above 200 K has provided a new impetus to the search for even higher $T_c$. Theory predicted and experiment confirmed that the phase involved is H$_3$S with Im-3m crystal structure. The observation of a sharp drop in resistance to zero at $T_c$, its downward shift with magnetic field and a Meissner effect confirm superconductivity but the mechanism involved remains to be determined.

We calculate the rho meson mass in a weak magnetic field using effective $\rho\pi\pi$ interaction. It is seen that both $\rho^0$ and $\rho^\pm$ masses decrease with the magnetic field in vacuum. $\rho$ meson dispersion relation has been calculated and shown to be different for $\rho^0$ and $\rho^\pm$.

It is shown that bound state solutions of the one dimensional Bogoliubov-de Gennes (BdG) equation may exist when the Fermi velocity becomes dependent on the space coordinate. The existence of bound states in continuum (BIC) like solutions has also been confirmed both in the normal phase as well as in the super-conducting phase. We also show that a combination of Fermi velocity and gap parameter step-like profiles provides scattering solutions with normal reflection and transmission. Read More

We consider a branching random walk on a multi($Q$)-type, supercritical Galton-Watson tree which satisfies Kesten-Stigum condition. We assume that the displacements associated with the particles of type $Q$ have regularly varying tails of index $\alpha$, while the other types of particles have lighter tails than that of particles of type $Q$. In this article, we derive the weak limit of the sequence of point processes associated with the positions of the particles in the $n^{th}$ generation. Read More

Based on the ratio of two block maxima, we propose a large sample test for the length of memory of a stationary symmetric $\alpha$-stable discrete parameter random field. We show that the power function converges to one as the sample-size increases to infinity under various classes of alternatives having longer memory in the sense of Samorodnitsky(2004). Ergodic theory of nonsingular $\mathbb{Z}^d$-actions play a very important role in the design and analysis of our large sample test. Read More

Beam-target double-spin asymmetries and target single-spin asymmetries were measured for the exclusive $\pi^0$ electroproduction reaction $\gamma^* p \to p \pi^0$, expanding an analysis of the $\gamma^* p \to n \pi^+$ reaction from the same experiment. The results were obtained from scattering of 6 GeV longitudinally polarized electrons off longitudinally polarized protons using the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer at Jefferson Lab. The kinematic range covered is $1. Read More

Baryogenesis via leptogenesis is investigated in a specific model of light neutrino masses and mixing angles. The latter was proposed on the basis of an assumed complex-extended scaling property of the neutrino Majorana mass matrix $M_\nu$, derived with a type-1 seesaw from a Dirac mass matrix $m_D$ and a heavy singlet neutrino Majorana mass matrix $M_R$. One of its important features, highlighted here, is that there is a common source of the origin of a nonzero $\theta_{13}$ and the CP violating lepton asymmetry through the imaginary part of $m_D$.

Area laws were first discovered by Bekenstein and Hawking, who found that the entropy of a black hole grows proportional to its surface area, and not its volume. Entropy area laws have since become a fundamental part of modern physics, from the holographic principle in quantum gravity to ground state wavefunctions of quantum matter, where entanglement entropy is generically found to obey area law scaling. As no experiments are currently capable of directly probing the entanglement area law in naturally occurring many-body systems, evidence of its existence is based on studies of simplified theories.

Empirical relationships are derived for the expected sampling error of quantile estimations using Monte Carlo experiments for two frequency distributions frequently encountered in climate sciences. The relationships found are expressed as a scaling factor times the standard error of the mean; these give a quick tool to estimate the uncertainty of quantiles for a given finite sample size.

By using the technique of supersymmetric quantum mechanics, we study a quasi exactly solvable extension of the N-particle rational Calogero model with harmonic confining interaction. Such quasi exactly solvable many particle system, whose effective potential in the radial direction yields a supersymmetric partner of the radial harmonic oscillator, is constructed by including new long-range interactions to the rational Calogero model. An infinite number of bound state energy levels are obtained for this system under certain conditions. Read More

We perform a detailed analysis of holographic entanglement R\'enyi entropy in some modified theories of gravity with four dimensional conformal field theory duals. First, we construct perturbative black hole solutions in a recently proposed model of Einsteinian cubic gravity in five dimensions, and compute the R\'enyi entropy as well as the scaling dimension of the twist operators in the dual field theory. Consistency of these results are verified from the AdS/CFT correspondence, via a corresponding computation of the Weyl anomaly on the gravity side. Read More

The origin of quantum fluctuations responsible for the spin liquid state in Tb$_2$Ti$_2$O$_7$ has remained a long standing problem. By synchrotron-based terahertz measurements, we show evidence of strong coupling between the magnetic and lattice degrees of freedom that provides a path to the quantum melting process. As revealed by hybrid crystal electric field-phonon excitations that appear at 0. Read More

In this work, we investigate the extremal behaviour of left-stationary symmetric $\alpha$-stable (S$\alpha$S) random fields indexed by finitely generated free groups. We begin by studying the rate of growth of a sequence of partial maxima obtained by varying the indexing parameter of the field over balls of increasing size. This leads to a phase-transition that depends on the ergodic properties of the underlying nonsingular action of the free group but is different from what happens in the case of S$\alpha$S random fields indexed by $\mathbb{Z}^d$.

Interactions between internet users are mediated by their devices and the common support infrastructure in data centres. Keeping track of causality amongst actions that take place in this distributed system is key to provide a seamless interaction where effects follow causes. Tracking causality in large scale interactions is difficult due to the cost of keeping large quantities of metadata; even more challenging when dealing with resource-limited devices. Read More

The fission fragment mass distributions have been measured in the reactions 16O + 184W and 19F+ 181Ta populating the same compound nucleus 200Pb? at similar excitation energies. It is found that the widths of the mass distribution increases monotonically with excitation energy, indicating the absence of quasi-fission for both reactions. This is contrary to two recent claims of the presence of quasi-fission in the above mentioned reactions. Read More

In recent synchrotron radiation facilities, the use of short (picosecond) electron bunches is a powerful method for producing giant pulses of Terahertz Coherent Synchrotron Radiation (THz CSR). Here we report on the first direct observation of these pulse shapes with a few picoseconds resolution, and of their dynamics over a long time. We thus confirm in a very direct way the theories predicting an interplay between two physical processes. Read More

Single-shot recording of terahertz electric signals has recently become possible at high repetition rates, by using the photonic time-stretch electro-optic sampling (EOS) technique. However the moderate sensitivity of time-stretch EOS is still a strong limit for a range of applications. Here we present a variant enabling to increase the sensitivity of photonic time-stretch for free-propagating THz signals. Read More

We consider a truncation of type IIB supergravity on four-torus where in addition to the Ramond-Ramond 2-form field, the Ramond-Ramond axion (w) and the NS-NS 2-form field (B) are also retained. In the (w, B) sector we construct a linearised perturbation carrying only left moving momentum on two-charge non-extremal D1-D5 geometries of Jejjala, Madden, Ross and Titchener. The perturbation is found to be smooth everywhere and normalizable. Read More

We report measurements of target- and double-spin asymmetries for the exclusive channel $\vec e\vec p\to e\pi^+ (n)$ in the nucleon resonance region at Jefferson Lab using the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer (CLAS). These asymmetries were extracted from data obtained using a longitudinally polarized NH$_3$ target and a longitudinally polarized electron beam with energies 1.1, 1. Read More

Domain wall motion driven by ultra-short laser pulses is a prerequisite for envisaged low-power spintronics combining storage of information in magneto electronic devices with high speed and long distance transmission of information encoded in circularly polarized light. Here we demonstrate the conversion of the circular polarization of incident femtosecond laser pulses into inertial displacement of a domain wall in a ferromagnetic semiconductor. In our study we combine electrical measurements and magneto-optical imaging of the domain wall displacement with micromagnetic simulations. Read More

We consider the entanglement between two spatial subregions in the Lieb-Liniger model of bosons in one spatial dimension interacting via a contact interaction. Using ground state path integral quantum Monte Carlo we numerically compute the R\'{e}nyi entropy of the reduced density matrix of the subsystem as a measure of entanglement. Our numerical algorithm is based on a replica method previously introduced by the authors, which we extend to efficiently study the entanglement of spatial subsystems of itinerant bosons. Read More

We study information theoretic geometry in time dependent quantum mechanical systems. First, we discuss global properties of the parameter manifold for two level systems exemplified by i) Rabi oscillations and ii) quenching dynamics of the XY spin chain in a transverse magnetic field, when driven across anisotropic criticality. Next, we comment upon the nature of the geometric phase from classical holonomy analyses of such parameter manifolds. Read More

We calculate the yield of lepton pair production from jet-plasma interaction where the plasma is anisotropic in momentum space. We compare both the $M$ and $p_T$ distributions from such process with the Drell-Yan contribution. It is observed that the invariant mass distribution of lepton pair from such process dominate over the Drell-Yan up to $3$ GeV at RHIC and up to $10$ GeV at LHC. Read More

In this work, we present a calculation of the non-Fermi liquid correction to the specific heat of magnetized degenerate quark matter present at the core of the neutron star. The role of non-Fermi liquid corrections to the neutrino emissivity has been calculated beyond leading order. We extend our result to the evaluation of the pulsar kick velocity and cooling of the star due to such anomalous corrections and present a comparison with the simple Fermi liquid case. Read More

The residual symmetry approach, along with a complex extension for some flavor invariance, is a powerful tool to uncover the flavor structure of the $3\times3$ neutrino Majorana mass matrix $M_\nu$ towards gaining insights into neutrino mixing. We utilize this to propose a complex extension of the real scaling ansatz for $M_\nu$ which was introduced some years ago. Unlike the latter, our proposal allows a nonzero mass for each of the three light neutrinos as well as a nonvanishing $\theta_{13}$. Read More

Ultrafast electrical switching by current-induced staggered spin-orbit fields, with minimal risk of overshoot, is shown in layered easy-plane antiferromagnets with basal-plane biaxial anisotropy. The reliable switching is due to the field-like torque, relaxing stringent requirements with respect to precision in the time-duration of the excitation pulse. We investigate the switching characteristics as a function of the spin-orbit field strength, pulse duration, pulse rise and fall time and damping by atomistic spin dynamics simulations and an effective equation of motion for the antiferromagnetic order-parameter.

Beam-target double spin asymmetries and target single-spin asymmetries in exclusive $\pi^+$ and $\pi^-$ electroproduction were obtained from scattering of 1.6 to 5.7 GeV longitudinally polarized electrons from longitudinally polarized protons (for $\pi^+$) and deuterons (for $\pi^-$) using the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer (CLAS) at Jefferson Lab.

Using the residual symmetry approach, we propose a complex extension of the scaling ansatz on $M_\nu$ which allows a nonzero mass for each of the three light neutrinos as well as a nonvanishing $\theta_{13}$. Leptonic Dirac CP violation must be maximal while atmospheric neutrino mixing need not to be exactly maximal. Each of the two Majorana phases, to be probed by the search for $0\nu \beta\beta$ decay, has to be zero or $\pi$ and a normal neutrino mass hierarchy is allowed. Read More

A flexoelectric peridynamic (PD) theory is proposed. Using the PD framework, the formulation introduces, perhaps for the first time, a nanoscale flexoelectric coupling that entails non-uniform strain in centrosymmetric dielectrics. This potentially enables PD modeling of a large class of phenomena in solid dielectrics involving cracks, discontinuities etc. Read More

[Background] The electromagnetic form factors of the proton measured by unpolarized and polarized electron scattering experiments show a significant disagreement that grows with the squared four momentum transfer ($Q^{2}$). Calculations have shown that the two measurements can be largely reconciled by accounting for the contributions of two-photon exchange (TPE). TPE effects are not typically included in the standard set of radiative corrections since theoretical calculations of the TPE effects are highly model dependent, and, until recently, no direct evidence of significant TPE effects has been observed.

Copper oxide nanostructures with spherical (0D), needle (1D) and hierarchical cauliflower (3D) morphologies are used to demonstrate superhydrophobic, superoleophobic and slippery behavior. These nanostructures are synthesized on galvanized steel substrates using a simple chemical bath deposition method by tuning precursor concentration. Subsequent coating of low surface energy polymer, polydimethylsiloxane, results in superhydrophobicity with water contact angle ~160(2){\deg} and critical sliding angle ~2{\deg}. Read More

On the space of weighted radial Sobolev space, the following generalization of Moser-Trudinger type inequality was established by Calanchi and Ruf in dimension 2 : If $\beta \in [0,1)$ and $w_0(x) = |\log |x||^\beta $ then $$ \sup_{\int_B |\grad u|^2w_0 \leq 1 , u \in H_{0,rad}^1(w_0,B)} \int_B e^{\alpha u^{\frac{2}{1-\beta}}} dx < \infty,$$ if and only if $\alpha \leq \alpha_\beta = 2\left[2\pi (1-\beta) \right]^{\frac{1}{1-\beta}}.$ We prove the existence of an extremal function for the above inequality for the critical case when $\alpha = \alpha_\beta$ thereby generalizing the result of Carleson-Chang who proved the case when $\beta =0$.

We demonstrate a novel technique to fabricate mechanically tunable slippery surfaces using one dimensional (anisotropic) elastic wrinkles. Such wrinkles show tunable topography (amplitude) on the application of mechanical strain. Following Nepenthes pitcher plants, lubricating fluid infused solid surfaces show excellent slippery behavior for test liquid drops. Read More

Let $\Omega_\ell = \ell\omega_1 \times \omega_2$ where $\omega_1 \subset \R^p$ and $\omega_2 \subset \R^{n-p}$ are assumed to be open and bounded. We consider the following minimization problem: $$E_{\Omega_\ell}(u_\ell) = \min_{u\in W_0^{1,q}(\Omega_\ell)}E_{\Omega_\ell}(u)$$ where $E_{\Omega_\ell}(u) = \int_{\Omega_\ell}F(\grad u)-fu$, $F$ is a convex function and $f\in L^{q'}(\omega_2)$. We are interested in studying the asymptotic behavior of the solution $u_\ell$ as $\ell$ tends to infinity. Read More

In this work, dispersion relations of $\pi^0$ and $\pi^{\pm}$ have been studied in vacuum in the limit of weak external magnetic field using a phenomenological pion-nucleon $(\pi N)$ Lagrangian. For our purpose, we have calculated the results up to one loop order in self energy diagrams with the pseudoscalar $(PS)$ and pseudovector $(PV)$ pion-nucleon interactions. By assuming weak external magnetic field it is seen that the effective mass of pion gets explicit magnetic field dependence and it is modified significantly for the case of PS coupling. Read More
