The low-noise operation of readout electronics in a liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) is critical to properly extract the distribution of ionization charge deposited on the wire planes of the TPC, especially for the induction planes. This paper describes the characteristics and mitigation of the observed noise in the MicroBooNE detector. The MicroBooNE's single-phase LArTPC comprises two induction planes and one collection sense wire plane with a total of 8256 wires. Read More

The MicroBooNE liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) has been taking data at Fermilab since 2015 collecting, in addition to neutrino beam, cosmic-ray muons. Results are presented on the reconstruction of Michel electrons produced by the decay at rest of cosmic-ray muons. Michel electrons are abundantly produced in the TPC, and given their well known energy spectrum can be used to study MicroBooNE's detector response to low-energy electrons (electrons with energies up to ~50 MeV).

We discuss a technique for measuring a charged particle's momentum by means of multiple Coulomb scattering (MCS) in the MicroBooNE liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC). This method does not require the full particle ionization track to be contained inside of the detector volume as other track momentum reconstruction methods do (range-based momentum reconstruction and calorimetric momentum reconstruction). We motivate use of this technique, describe a tuning of the underlying phenomenological formula, quantify its performance on fully contained beam-neutrino-induced muon tracks both in simulation and in data, and quantify its performance on exiting muon tracks in simulation.

The presence of stratified layer in atmosphere and ocean leads to buoyant vertical motions, commonly referred to as plumes. It is important to study the mixing dynamics of a plume at a local scale in order to model their evolution and growth. Such a characterization requires measuring the velocity and density of the mixing fluids simultaneously. Read More

Laboratory experiments were conducted to study heat transport characteristics in a nonhomogeneously heated fluid annulus subjected to rotation along the vertical axis (z). The nonhomogeneous heating was obtained by imposing radial and vertical temperature gradient ({\Delta}T). The parameter range for this study was Rayleigh number, Ra=2. Read More

We examine the time evolution of an asymmetric Hubbard dimer, which has a different on-site interaction on the two sites. The Hamiltonian has a time-dependent hopping term, which can be employed to describe an electric field (which creates a Hamiltonian with complex matrix elements), or it can describe a modulation of the lattice (which has real matrix elements). By examining the symmetries under spin and pseudospin, we show that the former case involves at most a 3 x 3 block---it can be mapped onto the time evolution of a time-independent Hamiltonian, so the dynamics can be evaluated analytically and exactly (by solving a nontrivial cubic equation). Read More

Subsets of the set of $g$-tuples of matrices that are closed with respect to direct sums and compact in the free topology are characterized. They are, in a dilation theoretic sense, the hull of a single point. Read More

We model the bang-bang optimization protocol as a shortcut to adiabaticity in the ground-state preparation of an ion-trap-based quantum simulator. Compared to a locally adiabatic evolution, the bang-bang protocol produces a somewhat lower ground-state probability, but its implementation is so much simpler than the locally adiabatic approach, that it remains an excellent choice to use for maximizing ground-state preparation in systems that cannot be solved with conventional computers. We describe how one can optimize the shortcut and provide specific details for how it can be implemented with current ion-trap-based quantum simulators. Read More

In a recent work, Moslehian and Rajic have shown that the Gruss inequality holds for unital n-positive linear maps $\phi:\mathcal A \rightarrow B(H)$, where $\mathcal A$ is a unital C*-algebra and H is a Hilbert space, if $n \ge 3$. They also demonstrate that the inequality fails to hold, in general, if $n = 1$ and question whether the inequality holds if $n=2$. In this article, we provide an affirmative answer to this question.

The well known Douglas Lemma says that for operators $A,B$ on Hilbert space that $AA^*-BB^*\succeq 0$ implies $B=AC$ for some contraction operator $C$. The result carries over directly to classical operator-valued Toeplitz operators by simply replacing operator by Toeplitz operator. Free functions generalize the notion of free polynomials and formal power series and trace back to the work of J. Read More

We study the emergence of Faraday waves in cigar-shaped collisionally inhomogeneous Bose-Einstein condensates subject to periodic modulation of the radial confinement. Considering a Gaussian-shaped radially inhomogeneous scattering length, we show through extensive numerical simulations and detailed variational treatment that the spatial period of the emerging Faraday waves increases as the inhomogeneity of the scattering length gets weaker, and that it saturates once the width of the radial inhomogeneity reaches the radial width of the condensate. In the regime of strongly inhomogeneous scattering lengths, the radial profile of the condensate is akin to that of a hollow cylinder, while in the weakly inhomogeneous case the condensate is cigar-shaped and has a Thomas-Fermi radial density profile.

The motivation of this work is two-fold - a) to compare between two different modes of visualizing data that exists in a bag of vectors format b) to propose a theoretical model that supports a new mode of visualizing data. Visualizing high dimensional data can be achieved using Minimum Volume Embedding, but the data has to exist in a format suitable for computing similarities while preserving local distances. This paper compares the visualization between two methods of representing data and also proposes a new method providing sample visualizations for that method. Read More

The electrochemical oxidation of carbon monoxide adsorbed (COad) on platinum-on-carbon electrodes was studied via a methodology in which pre-adsorbed CO was partially oxidized by applying potentiostatic pulses for certain durations. The residual COad was analyzed using stripping voltammetry that involved the deconvolution of COad oxidation peaks of voltammograms to quantify the weakly and strongly bound species of COad. The data obtained for various potentials and temperatures were fit to a model based on a nucleation and growth mechanism. Read More

We obtain an extended Reich fixed point theorem for the setting of generalized cone rectangular metric spaces without assuming the normality of the underlying cone. Our work is a generalization of the main result in \cite{AAB} and \cite{JS}. Read More

In this paper, we design and implement time exchange (TE) based cooperative forwarding where nodes use transmission time slots as incentives for relaying. We focus on distributed joint time slot exchange and relay selection in the sum goodput maximization of the overall network. We formulate the design objective as a mixed integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) problem and provide a polynomial time distributed solution of the MINLP. Read More

The vision of super computer at every desk can be realized by powerful and highly parallel CPUs or GPUs or APUs. Graphics processors once specialized for the graphics applications only, are now used for the highly computational intensive general purpose applications. Very expensive GFLOPs and TFLOP performance has become very cheap with the GPGPUs. Read More

We prove a Caratheodory-Fejer type interpolation theorem for certain matrix convex sets in $\C^d$ using the Blecher-Ruan-Sinclair characterization of abstract operator algebras. Our results generalize the work of Dmitry S. Kalyuzhnyi-Verbovetzkii for the d-dimensional non-commutative polydisc. Read More

Structural transitions and the melting behavior of crystalline poly(ethylene oxide),(CH2-CH2-O)n, (PEO) has been investigated using fully atomistic, constant pressure-constant temperature (NPT) molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Melting of PEO proceeds in two stages; Order parameters reveal the loss of interchain orientational correlations and of chain helicity in the first and second stages of melting respectively. Sliding diffusion and anisotropic reorientational dynamics of the polymer backbone are observed in the solid state, in agreement with 1H NMR experiments. Read More

Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of crystalline poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) have been carried out in order to study its vibrational properties. The vibrational density of states has been calculated using a normal mode analysis (NMA) and also through the velocity autocorrelation function of the atoms. Results agree well with experimental spectroscopic data. Read More

In order to understand the nature and dynamics of interfacial water molecules on the surface of complex systems, large scale molecular dynamics simulations of an aqueous micelle of cesium perfluorooctanoate surfactant molecules have been carried out. The lifetime and the intermolecular vibrational frequencies of the hydrogen bonds that the water molecules form with the polar headgroups of the surfactants, are calculated. Our earlier classification of the interfacial water molecules, based on structural and energetic considerations, into bound and free type is further validated by their dynamics. Read More

Our atomistic molecular dynamics simulations reveal the existence of bound and free water molecules in the hydration layer of an aqueous micelle. The bound water molecules can be either singly or doubly hydrogen bonded to the polar head group on the surface of the micelle. The ratio of bound to free water is found to be approximately equal to 9:1 at 300 K. Read More

The dynamics of hydrogen bonds among water molecules themselves and with the polar head groups (PHG) at a micellar surface have been investigated by long molecular dynamics simulations. The lifetime of the hydrogen bond between a PHG and a water molecule is found to be much longer than that between any two water molecules, and is likely to be a general feature of hydrophilic surfaces of organized assemblies. Analyses of individual water trajectories suggest that water molecules can remain bound to the micellar surface for more than a hundred picosecond. Read More
