We study scalar products of Bethe vectors in the models solvable by the nested algebraic Bethe ansatz and described by $\mathfrak{gl}(m|n)$ superalgebra. Using coproduct properties of the Bethe vectors we obtain a sum formula for their scalar products. This formula describes the scalar product in terms of a sum over partitions of Bethe parameters.

The Tsallis entropy given for a positive parameter $\alpha$ can be considered as a modification of the classical Shannon entropy. For the latter, corresponding to $\alpha=1$, there exist many axiomatic characterizations. One of them based on the well-known Khinchin-Shannon axioms has been simplified several times and adapted to Tsallis entropy, where the axiom of (generalized) Shannon additivity is playing a central role.

This paper is concerned with the theoretical study of plasmonic resonances for linear elasticity governed by the Lam\'e system in $\mathbb{R}^3$, and their application for cloaking due to anomalous localized resonances. We derive a very general and novel class of elastic structures that can induce plasmonic resonances. It is shown that if either one of the two convexity conditions on the Lam\'e parameters is broken, then we can construct certain plasmon structures that induce resonances. Read More


This study investigated the unitary equivalent classes of one-dimensional quantum walks. We determined the unitary equivalent classes of one-dimensional quantum walks, two-phase quantum walks with one defect, complete two-phase quantum walks, one-dimensional quantum walks with one defect and translation-invariant one-dimensional quantum walks. The unitary equivalent classes of one-dimensional quantum walks with initial states were also considered. Read More


In a spacetime divided into two regions $U_1$ and $U_2$ by a hypersurface $\Sigma$, a perturbation of the field in $U_1$ is coupled to perturbations in $U_2$ by means of the first-order holographic imprint that it leaves on $\Sigma$. The linearized glueing field equation constrains perturbations on the two sides of a dividing hypersurface. This linear operator may have a nontrivial null space; a nontrivial perturbation of the field leaving a holographic imprint on a dividing hypersurface which does not affect perturbations on the other side should be considered physically irrelevant.

Observable currents are conserved gauge invariant currents, physical observables may be calculated integrating them on appropriate hypersurfaces. Due to the conservation law the hypersurfaces become irrelevant up to homology, and the main objects of interest become the observable currents them selves. Hamiltonian observable currents are those satisfying ${\sf d_v} F = - \iota_V \Omega_L + {\sf d_h}\sigma^F$. Read More


We interpret, in the realm of relativistic quantum field theory, the tangential operator given by Coleman, Mandula as an appropriate coordinate operator. The investigation shows that the operator generates a Snyder-like noncommutative spacetime with a minimal length that is given by the mass. By using this operator to define a noncommutative spacetime, we obtain a Poincar\'e invariant noncommutative spacetime and in addition solve the soccer-ball problem. Read More


We study the Neumann Laplacian operator $-\Delta_\Omega^N$ restricted to a twisted waveguide $\Omega$. The goal is to find the effective operator when the diameter of $\Omega$ tends to zero. However, when $\Omega$ is "squeezed" there are divergent eigenvalues due to the transverse oscillations. Read More


We prove that the doubly lambda-deformed sigma-models, which include integrable cases, are canonically equivalent to the sum of two single lambda-deformed models. This explains the equality of the exact beta-functions and current anomalous dimensions of the doubly lambda-deformed sigma-models to those of two single lambda-deformed models. Our proof is based upon agreement of their Hamiltonian densities and of their canonical structure. Read More


Totally Asymmetric Simple Exclusion Process (TASEP) on $\mathbb{Z}$ is one of the classical exactly solvable models in the KPZ universality class. We study the "slow bond" model, where TASEP on $\mathbb{Z}$ is imputed with a slow bond at the origin. The slow bond increases the particle density immediately to its left and decreases the particle density immediately to its right. Read More
