This article is about my memories from the discovery that the Veneziano model describes in fact interacting strings. I came to the understanding of that the dual or Veneziano model is really a model of strings independently of L. Susskind and Y. Nambu. A characteristic feature of my approach was that I used thinking of very high order "fishnet" or planar Feynman diagrams as the way of at first describing the development of the strings. A chain of constituents leads to planar diagrams dominating when only neighbours on the chain interact significantly. The article also mentions the works of Ziro Koba and mine about extending the Veneziano model first to five external particles - as Bardakci and Ruegg, Chan Tsou, and Goebel and Sakita also did - and subsequently to an arbitrary number n of external mesons.
Ballonet String Model of Molecules

Full Text Available Strings of ballonets, modelling rows of orbitals, are assembled to molecule models by crossing them properly. The ballonets at the ends of the strings of 2, 3, 4 or 5 spheres represent bonding orbitals of hydrogen with other elements like C, N or O (the proton being inside the sphere, as well as nonbonding orbitals. The ballonets between them are modelling bonding orbitals among elements other than hydrogen - except the double bond in diborane, the atomic cores laying at the junction of two or more spheres.Advantages of elastic sphere models range from self-adjusting bond angles to resistance when closing cycles like cyclopropane or modeling double bonds.Examples comprise alkanes, including platonic hydrocarbons, ethene, acetylene, and some inorganic molecules.
Sigma models and string theory
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

They show how to calculate the Weyl anomaly coefficients in the bosonic, supersymmetric and heterotic sigma models and explain their interpretation as string theory equations of motion for spacetime background fields

Thermally activated motion of screw dislocations is the rate-determining mechanism for plastic deformation and fracture of body centred cubic (bcc) metals and alloys. Recent experimental observations by S.G. Roberts' group at Oxford showed that ductile-brittle behaviour of bcc vanadium, tungsten, pure iron, and iron-chromium alloys is controlled by an Arrhenius process in which the energy for thermal activation is proportional to the formation energy for a double kink on a b= 1/2 screw dislocation, where b is the Burgers vector of the dislocation. Interpreting these experimental observations and extending the analysis to the case of irradiated materials requires developing a full quantitative treatment for perfect and kinked screw dislocations. Modelling screw dislocations also presents a challenge for the development of interatomic potentials. Recent density functional theory (DFT) calculations have revealed that the ground-state structure of the core of screw dislocations in all the bcc transition metals is non-degenerate and symmetric, whereas inter-atomic potentials used in molecular dynamics simulations for these metals often predict a degenerate, symmetry-broken core-structure. In this work we show how, by treating the structure of a screw dislocation within a multistring Frenkel-Kontorova model, we can develop a criterion that guarantees the correct symmetric core of the dislocation. Extending this treatment, we find a systematic recipe for constructing Finnis-Sinclair-type potentials that are able, as a matter of routine, produce non-degenerate core structures of 1/2 screw dislocations. Modelling thermally activated mobility of screw dislocations also requires that the transition pathway between stable core positions of a dislocation is accurately reproduced. DFT data indicates that the shape of the 'Peierls energy barrier' is a single-hump curve, including transitional configurations close to the so-called 'hard' structure. Interatomic potentials have, up
String bit models for superstring
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The authors extend the model of string as a polymer of string bits to the case of superstring. They mainly concentrate on type II-B superstring, with some discussion of the obstacles presented by not II-B superstring, together with possible strategies for surmounting them. As with previous work on bosonic string work within the light-cone gauge. The bit model possesses a good deal less symmetry than the continuous string theory. For one thing, the bit model is formulated as a Galilei invariant theory in (D - 2) + 1 dimensional space-time. This means that Poincare invariance is reduced to the Galilei subgroup in D - 2 space dimensions. Naturally the supersymmetry present in the bit model is likewise dramatically reduced. Continuous string can arise in the bit models with the formation of infinitely long polymers of string bits. Under the right circumstances (at the critical dimension) these polymers can behave as string moving in D dimensional space-time enjoying the full N = 2 Poincare supersymmetric dynamics of type II-B superstring

Warped models in string theory
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Warped models, originating with the ideas of Randall and Sundrum, provide a fascinating extension of the standard model with interesting consequences for the LHC. We investigate in detail how string theory realises such models, with emphasis on fermion localisation and the computation of Yukawa couplings. We find, in contrast to the 5d models, that fermions can be localised anywhere in the extra dimension, and that there are new mechanisms to generate exponential hierarchies amongst the Yukawa couplings. We also suggest a way to distinguish these string theory models with data from the LHC. (author)
Coherent backscattering of light off one-dimensional atomic strings
Sørensen, H L; Kluge, K W; Iakoupov, I; Sørensen, A S; Müller, J H; Polzik, E S; Appel, J
2016-01-01
Bragg scattering, well known in crystallography, has become a powerful tool for artificial atomic structures such as optical lattices. In an independent development photonic waveguides have been used successfully to boost quantum light-matter coupling. We combine these two lines of research and present the first experimental realisation of coherent Bragg scattering off a one-dimensional (1D) system - two strings of atoms strongly coupled to a single photonic mode - realised by trapping atoms in the evanescent field of a tapered optical fibre (TOF), which also guides the probe light. We report nearly 12% power reflection from strings containing only about one thousand caesium atoms, an enhancement of more than two orders of magnitude compared to reflection from randomly positioned atoms. This result paves the road towards collective strong coupling in 1D atom-photon systems. Our approach also allows for a straightforward fibre connection between several distant 1D atomic crystals.
Modeling Regular Replacement for String Constraint Solving
Fu, Xiang; Li, Chung-Chih
2010-01-01
Bugs in user input sanitation of software systems often lead to vulnerabilities. Among them many are caused by improper use of regular replacement. This paper presents a precise modeling of various semantics of regular substitution, such as the declarative, finite, greedy, and reluctant, using finite state transducers (FST). By projecting an FST to its input/output tapes, we are able to solve atomic string constraints, which can be applied to both the forward and backward image computation in model checking and symbolic execution of text processing programs. We report several interesting discoveries, e.g., certain fragments of the general problem can be handled using less expressive deterministic FST. A compact representation of FST is implemented in SUSHI, a string constraint solver. It is applied to detecting vulnerabilities in web applications
Metastable cosmic strings in realistic models
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The stability of the electroweak Z-string is investigated at high temperatures. The results show that, while finite temperature corrections can improve the stability of the Z-string, their effect is not strong enough to stabilize the Z-string in the standard electroweak model. Consequently, the Z-string will be unstable even under the conditions present during the electroweak phase transition. Phenomenologically viable models based on the gauge group SU(2)L x SU(2) R x U(1)B-L are then considered, and it is shown that metastable strings exist and are stable to small perturbations for a large region of the parameter space for these models. It is also shown that these strings are superconducting with bosonic charge carriers. The string superconductivity may be able to stabilize segments and loops against dynamical contraction. Possible implications of these strings for cosmology are discussed

The Friedman equation for the universe with arbitrary curvature $(k = 0, \\pm 1)$, filled with mutually noninteracting pressureless dust, radiation, cosmological constant, and strings is considered. We assume the string domination scenario for the evolution of the latter component. Moreover, we discuss the simplest possibility for the scaling of the string energy density: $\\varrho \\propto R^{-2}$. For such models we write down the explicit solution of the Friedman equation.

Rod pumping is used extensively in the oil well industry as a method of artificial lift. In order to analyze the performance of oil wells, the force and displacement at the polished rod are measured using a dynamometer. The data is applied to the boundary conditions when calculating the forces and displacement at the bottom of the rod string that defines the conditions of the pump, pumping effectiveness and production rate. This study proposed a transfer matrix method to model the dynamic behavior of the sucker string rod. The main reason for developing the method was to simplify the currently used mathematical method with a simple matrix operation in which the bottom-hole force-displacement values are obtained as a product of data vectors at the polished rod end by a transfer matrix. The problem was solved using D'Alembert's systems solution equation and the adaptive filter matrix method. The proposed method reduces calculation time because a more efficient matrix operation is used without losing accuracy. This study showed that it is possible to use the transfer matrix to calculate load-displacement relations a hundred or more times in one stroke, which is beneficial when developing tools to control oil wells, such as wellhead controllers. 9 refs., 3 tabs., 8 figs.
Loop gas model for open strings
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The open string with one-dimensional target space is formulated in terms of an SOS, or loop gas model on a random surface. We solve an integral equation for the loop amplitude with Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions imposed on different pieces of its boundary. The result is used to calculate the mean values of order and disorder operators, to construct the string propagator and find its spectrum of excitations. The latter is not sensitive either to the string tension Λ or to the mass μ of the 'quarks' at the ends of the string. As in the case of closed strings, the SOS formulation allows us to construct a Feynman-diagram technique for the string interaction amplitudes. (orig.)

String models of unified interactions are elegant sets of Feynman rules for the scattering of gravitons, gauge bosons, and a host of massive excitations. The purpose of these lectures is to describe the progress towards a nonperturbative formulation of the theory. Such a formulation should make the geometrical meaning of string theory manifest and explain the many ''miracles'' exhibited by the string Feynman rules. There are some new results on gauge invariant observables, on the cosmological constant, and on the symmetries of interacting string field theory. 49 refs.

Strings, Integrable Systems, Geometry and Statistical Models
Marshakov, A
2004-01-01
The role of integrable systems in string theory is discussed. We remind old examples of the correspondence between stringy partition functions or effective actions and integrable equations, based on effective application of the matrix model technique. Then we turn to a new example, coming from the Nekrasov deformation of the Seiberg-Witten prepotential. In the last case the deformed theory is described by a different statistical model, which becomes equivalent to a partition function of a topological string. The full partition function of string theory arises therefore always as a certain "quantization" of its quasiclassical geometry.
Spontaneous excitation of a uniformly accelerated atom in the cosmic string spacetime
Zhou, Wenting; Yu, Hongwei
2016-04-01
We study, in the cosmic string spacetime, the average rate of change of energy for an atom coupled to massless scalar fields and uniformly accelerated in a direction parallel to the string in vacuum. We find that both the noninertial motion and the nontrivial global spacetime topology affect the atomic transition rates, so an accelerated atom (an Unruh detector) does feel the string contrary to claims in the literature. We demonstrate that the equivalence between the effect of uniform acceleration and that of thermal radiation on the transition rates of the atom, which is valid in the Minkowski spacetime, holds only on the string.

String theory constructions towards the MSSM allow us to identify some general properties that could be relevant for tests at the LHC. They originate from the geometric structure of compactification and the location of fields in extra-dimensional space. Within the framework of the heterotic MiniLandscape we extract some generic lessons for supersymmetric model building. Among them is a specific pattern of SUSY breakdown based on mirage mediation and remnants of extended supersymmetry. This leads to a split spectrum with heavy scalars of the first two families of quarks and leptons and suppressed masses for gauginos, top partners and Higgs bosons. The models exhibit some specific form of hidden supersymmetry consistent with the high mass of the Higgs boson and all presently available experimental constraints. The most compelling picture is based on precision gauge coupling unification that might be in the kinematic reach of the LHC. (orig.)
Spontaneous excitation of a static atom in a thermal bath in cosmic string spacetime
Cai, Huabing; Zhou, Wenting
2015-01-01
We study the average rate of change of energy for a static atom immersed in a thermal bath of electromagnetic radiation in the cosmic string spacetime and separately calculate the contributions of thermal fluctuations and radiation reaction. We find that the transition rates are crucially dependent on the atom-string distance and polarization of the atom and they in general oscillate as the atom-string distance varies. Moreover, the atomic transition rates in the cosmic string spacetime can be larger or smaller than those in Minkowski spacetime contingent upon the atomic polarization and position. In particular, when located on the string, ground-state atoms can make a transition to excited states only if they are polarizable parallel to the string, whereas ground state atoms polarizable only perpendicular to the string are stable as if they were in a vacuum, even if they are immersed in a thermal bath. Our results suggest that the influence of a cosmic string is very similar to that of a reflecting boundary ...

We investigate Cu-Zr liquid alloys using molecular dynamics simulation and well-accepted embedded atom method potentials over a wide range of chemical composition and temperature as model metallic glass-forming (GF) liquids. As with other types of GF materials, the dynamics of these complex liquids are characterized by “dynamic heterogeneity” in the form of transient polymeric clusters of highly mobile atoms that are composed in turn of atomic clusters exhibiting string-like cooperative motion. In accordance with the string model of relaxation, an extension of the Adam-Gibbs (AG) model, changes in the activation free energy ΔGa with temperature of both the Cu and Zr diffusion coefficients D, and the alpha structural relaxation time τα can be described to a good approximation by changes in the average string length, L. In particular, we confirm that the strings are a concrete realization of the abstract “cooperatively rearranging regions” of AG. We also find coexisting clusters of relatively “immobile” atoms that exhibit predominantly icosahedral local packing rather than the low symmetry packing of “mobile” atoms. These two distinct types of dynamic heterogeneity are then associated with different fluid structural states. Glass-forming liquids are thus analogous to polycrystalline materials where the icosahedrally packed regions correspond to crystal grains, and the strings reside in the relatively disordered grain boundary-like regions exterior to these locally well-ordered regions. A dynamic equilibrium between localized (“immobile”) and wandering (“mobile”) particles exists in the liquid so that the dynamic heterogeneity can be considered to be type of self-assembly process. We also characterize changes in the local atomic free volume in the course of string-like atomic motion to better understand the initiation and propagation of these fluid excitations
(m,n)-Strings In IIB Matrix Model
Parvizi, Shahrokh; Fatollahi, Amir H.
1999-01-01
By adding gauge fields to the D-string classical solution, which have non-zero contribution to commutators in continuum limit (extreme large $N$), we introduced $(m,n)$-strings in IIB matrix model. It is found that the size of matrices depends on the value of the electric field. The tension of these strings appears in $SL(2,Z)$ invariant form. The interaction for parallel and angled strings are found in agreement with the string theory for small electric fields.
Gauge models of fermionic discrete 'strings'
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
A new class of constrained hamiltonian systems with a finite number of bosonic and fermionic degrees of freedom is proposed. Coordinates of these systems are divided into two groups of independent variables analogous to the left and right movers of the standard closed fermionic string theory. Hamiltonians are obtained by gauging some subgroups of the linear (super) canonical transformations for the left and right variables. It is argued that some of the new models can be regarded as discrete analogs of the standard fermionic string theory. The extension of the models obtained by adding ghost variables is also constructed as a prerequisite to quantizing them. 13 refs
$k$ Strings from Various Perspectives: QCD, Lattices, String Theory and Toy Models
Shifman, M.
2005-01-01
I review the status of the issue of the k-string tension in Yang-Mills theory. After a summary of known facts I discuss a weakly coupled four-dimensional Yang-Mills theory that supports non-Abelian strings and can, in certain aspects, serve as a toy model for QCD strings. In the second part of the talk I present original results obtained in a two-dimensional toy model which provides some evidence for the sine formula.
Some Exact Solutions of Magnetized viscous model in String Cosmology
Singh, C P
2012-01-01
In this paper we study anisotropic Bianchi-V universe with magnetic field and bulk viscous fluid in string cosmology. Exact solutions of the field equations are obtained by using the equation of state for a cloud of strings and a relationship between bulk viscous coefficient and expansion scalar. The bulk viscous coefficient is assumed to be inversely proportional to the expansion scalar. It is interesting to examine the effects of magnetized bulk viscous string model in early and late stages of the evolution of the universe. This paper investigates the different string models like geometrical(Nambu string), Takabayashi (p-string) and Reddy string models by taking certain physical conditions. The introduction of magnetic field or bulk viscosity or both results in rapid change in scale factors as well as in the classical potential. The presence of viscosity prevents the universe to be empty in its future evolution. The physical and geometrical aspects of each string model are discussed in detail.

The various physical and geometrical aspects of the models are also discussed.
Light Z' in Heterotic String Standard-like Models
Athanasopoulos, P; Mehta, V M
2014-01-01
The discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC supports the hypothesis that the Standard Model provides an effective parameterisation of all subatomic experimental data up to the Planck scale. String theory, which provides a viable perturbative approach to quantum gravity, requires for its consistency the existence of additional gauge symmetries beyond the Standard Model. The construction of heterotic--string models with a viable light $Z^\\prime$ is, however, highly constrained. We outline the construction of standard--like heterotic--string models that allow for an additional Abelian gauge symmetry that may remain unbroken down to low scales. We present a string inspired model, consistent with the string constraints.
Exotic hadron and string junction model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Hadron structure is investigated adopting string junction model as a realization of confinement. Besides exotic hadrons (M4, B5 etc.), unconventional hadrons appear. A mass formula for these hadrons is proposed. New selection rule is introduced which requires the covalence of constituent line at hadron vertex. New duality appears due to the freedom of junction, especially in anti BB→anti BB reaction. A possible assignment of exotic and unconventional hadrons to recently observed narrow meson states is presented. (auth.)
The nucleation model of strings and the Hagedorn phase transition
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
In this paper we discuss a model of interacting strings at finite densities based on nucleation theory, the study of formation of droplets in a supersaturated gas, the analogy being between drops of various sizes and strings with various excitation number. The interaction of the strings is considered to be the usual merging and splitting. We do not assume equilibrium a priori but find equilibrium configurations of strings as a result of their dynamics. We study these configurations as we change the energy density, and find the presence of two phases. A low density 'gas' phase, in which the energy is in strings in the fundamental or the first few excited levels, and a high density 'liquid' phase in which the number of strings is low, all the energy being carried by few very excited strings. For the gas phase we also discuss the thermodynamics of the system. (author). 21 refs, 20 figs, 1 tab

The locally rotationally symmetric Bianchi-type Ⅱ string cosmological models with bulk viscosity are obtained, where an equation of state, p = kλ, and a relation between metric potentials, R = ASn, are adopted. The physical features of the models are also discussed. In special cases the model reduces to the string models without viscosity that was previously given in the literatures.
String field theory inspired phantom model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
An exact solution to the Friedmann equations with a stringy inspired phantom field is constructed. The Universe is considered as a slowly decaying D3-brane, which is described in the string field theory framework. The notable features of the concerned exactly solvable stringy dark energy (DE) model are a ghost sign of the kinetic term and a special polynomial form of the effective tachyon potential. Cosmological consequences of adding the cold dark matter (CDM) to this model are investigated as well. Solutions with large initial value of the CDM energy density attracted by the exact solution without the CDM are constructed numerically. In contrast to the ACDM model the Hubble parameter in our model is not a monotonic function of time. For specific initial data the DE state parameter UJDE is also not monotonic function of time. For these cases there are two separate domains of time where U'DE being less than - 1 is close to - 1. Stability conditions, under which the constructed solution is stable with respect to small fluctuations of the initial conditions, including the CDM energy density, are found. Keywords: string field theory, cosmology, tachyon, phantom, dark energy, cold dark matter, Big Rip (authors)
A model of interacting strings and the Hagedorn phase transition
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
In this letter we introduce a model of interacting string in which the usual ideal gas approximations are not made. The model is constructed in analogy with nucleation models, the formation of droplets in a supersaturate gas. We consider the strings to be interacting and their number not fixed. The equilibrium configuration is the one for which the time derivatives of the number of strings in the various energies vanishes. We evaluate numerically the equilibrium configurations for various values of the energy density. We find that a density of order one in planck units there is a sharp transition, from a 'gas' phase in which there are many strings, all in the massless or first few excited states, to a 'liquid' phase in which all strings have coalesced into one (or few) highly excited string.

Our hydrogen atom interacts with a neutron star. Its stringy TW/SW electron is cut by a neutrino scissor that instantly becomes its end anti-node. The string has one extra neutrino in 100,000. Antimatter remains concealed. Our Dumbo Proton of a TW state is similarly cut. Inside the star, electron string/spring compresses 100,000 and 1836 times more, to proton's linear mass density. Electrostatics encourages that caboose, stringy electron, to couple with a cut proton. Linear charge densities neutralize while composite length contracts 20%. The writhing string evicts an antineutrino at closure on Pauli's authority, becoming Mickey Neutron, with looped quarks. Unstable Mickey Neutron has his ear notch forced into an ear notch of stable Dumbo Proton, achieving immortality in this deuteron marriage. Tritium is in a m'enage a trois. Alpha Nucleus has a # grid. Meta state Ne-20 predicts alpha eviction to O-16. Schr"odinger finally prevails, so string theory and Wave Mechanics can prosper.
With string model to time series forecasting

Overwhelming majority of econometric models applied on a long term basis in the financial forex market do not work sufficiently well. The reason is that transaction costs and arbitrage opportunity are not included, as this does not simulate the real financial markets. Analyses are not conducted on the non equidistant date but rather on the aggregate date, which is also not a real financial case. In this paper, we would like to show a new way how to analyze and, moreover, forecast financial market. We utilize the projections of the real exchange rate dynamics onto the string-like topology in the OANDA market. The latter approach allows us to build the stable prediction models in trading in the financial forex market. The real application of the multi-string structures is provided to demonstrate our ideas for the solution of the problem of the robust portfolio selection. The comparison with the trend following strategies was performed, the stability of the algorithm on the transaction costs for long trade periods was confirmed.
Linear Sigma Models for Open Strings
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We formulate and study a class of massive N = 2 supersymmetric gauge field theories coupled to boundary degrees of freedom on the strip. For some values of the parameters, the infrared limits of these theories can be interpreted as open string sigma models describing D-branes in large-radius Calabi-Yau compactifications. For other values of the parameters, these theories flow to CFTs describing branes in more exotic, non-geometric phases of the Calabi-Yau moduli space such as the Landau-Ginzburg orbifold phase. Some simple properties of the branes (like large radius monodromies and spectra of worldvolume excitations) can be computed in our model. We also provide simple worldsheet models of the transitions which occur at loci of marginal stability, and of Higgs-Coulomb transitions

Dualities in ABJM Matrix Model from Closed String Viewpoint

2016-01-01
We propose a new formalism to study the ABJM matrix model. Contrary to expressing the fractional brane background with the Wilson loops in the open string formalism, our formalism expresses the Wilson loop expectation value from the viewpoint of changing the closed string backgrounds. With this new formalism, we can prove some duality relations in the matrix model.
Justification of the zeta function renormalization in rigid string model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
A consistent procedure for regularization of divergences and for subsequent renormalization of the string tension is proposed in the framework of the one-loop calculation of the interquark potential generated by the Polyakov endash Kleinert string. In this way, a justification of the formal treatment of divergences by analytic continuation of the Riemann and Epstein endash Hurwitz zeta functions is given. A spectral representation for the renormalized string energy at zero temperature is derived, which enables one to find the Casimir energy in this string model at nonzero temperature very easy. copyright 1997 American Institute of Physics

We test the applicability of a living polymerization theory to describe cooperative string-like particle rearrangement clusters (strings) observed in simulations of a coarse-grained polymer melt. The theory quantitatively describes the interrelation between the average string length L, configurational entropy Sconf, and the order parameter for string assembly Φ without free parameters. Combining this theory with the Adam-Gibbs model allows us to predict the relaxation time τ in a lower temperature T range than accessible by current simulations. In particular, the combined theories suggest a return to Arrhenius behavior near Tg and a low T residual entropy, thus avoiding a Kauzmann "entropy crisis." PMID:24880303

Non-linear σ-models and string theories
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The connection between σ-models and string theories is discussed, as well as how the σ-models can be used as tools to prove various results in string theories. Closed bosonic string theory in the light cone gauge is very briefly introduced. Then, closed bosonic string theory in the presence of massless background fields is discussed. The light cone gauge is used, and it is shown that in order to obtain a Lorentz invariant theory, the string theory in the presence of background fields must be described by a two-dimensional conformally invariant theory. The resulting constraints on the background fields are found to be the equations of motion of the string theory. The analysis is extended to the case of the heterotic string theory and the superstring theory in the presence of the massless background fields. It is then shown how to use these results to obtain nontrivial solutions to the string field equations. Another application of these results is shown, namely to prove that the effective cosmological constant after compactification vanishes as a consequence of the classical equations of motion of the string theory. 34 refs
Non-linear sigma-models and string theories
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Sen, A.
1986-10-01
The connection between sigma-models and string theories is discussed, as well as how the sigma-models can be used as tools to prove various results in string theories. Closed bosonic string theory in the light cone gauge is very briefly introduced. Then, closed bosonic string theory in the presence of massless background fields is discussed. The light cone gauge is used, and it is shown that in order to obtain a Lorentz invariant theory, the string theory in the presence of background fields must be described by a two-dimensional conformally invariant theory. The resulting constraints on the background fields are found to be the equations of motion of the string theory. The analysis is extended to the case of the heterotic string theory and the superstring theory in the presence of the massless background fields. It is then shown how to use these results to obtain nontrivial solutions to the string field equations. Another application of these results is shown, namely to prove that the effective cosmological constant after compactification vanishes as a consequence of the classical equations of motion of the string theory. 34 refs.

String networks with junctions in competition models
Avelino, P P; Losano, L; Menezes, J; de Oliveira, B F
2016-01-01
In this work we give specific examples of competition models, with six and eight species, whose three-dimensional dynamics naturally leads to the formation of string networks with junctions, associated with regions that have a high concentration of enemy species. We study the two- and three-dimensional evolution of such networks, both using stochastic network and mean field theory simulations. If the predation, reproduction and mobility probabilities do not vary in space and time, we find that the networks attain scaling regimes with a characteristic length roughly proportional to $t^{1/2}$, where $t$ is the physical time, thus showing that the presence of junctions, on its own, does not have a significant impact on their scaling properties.
Chiral String-Soliton Model for the light chiral baryons
Pavlovsky, Oleg
2010-01-01
The Chiral String-Soliton Model is a joining of the two notions about the light chiral baryons: the chiral soliton models (like the Skyrme model) and the Quark-Gluon String models. The ChSS model is based on the Effective Chiral Lagrangian which was proposed in [arXiv:hep-ph/0306216]. We have studied the physical properties of the light chiral baryon within the framework of this ChSS model.

Some exact solutions of magnetized viscous model in string cosmology
Indian Academy of Sciences (India)
C P Singh
2014-07-01
In this paper, we study anisotropic Bianchi-V Universe with magnetic field and bulk viscous fluid in string cosmology. Exact solutions of the field equations are obtained by using the equation of state (EoS) for a cloud of strings, and a relationship between bulk viscous coefficient and scalar expansion. The bulk viscous coefficient is assumed to be inversely proportional to the expansion scalar. It is interesting to examine the effects of magnetized bulk viscous string model in early and late stages of evolution of the Universe. This paper presents different string models like geometrical (Nambu string), Takabayasi (p-string) and Reddy string models by taking certain physical conditions. We discuss the nature of classical potential for viscous fluid with and without magnetic field. The presence of bulk viscosity stops the Universe from becoming empty in its future evolution. It is observed that the Universe expands with decelerated rate in the presence of viscous fluid with magnetic field whereas, it expands with marginal inflation in the presence of viscous fluid without magnetic field. The other physical and geometrical aspects of each string model are discussed in detail.
Stability of sigma-model strings and textures
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
In flat spacetime, sigma-model strings and textures are both unstable: they tend to collapse (and subsequently decay). With sufficient cosmological expansion, however, they are stable in a generalized sense: a small perturbation will cause them to change their shape, but they do not decay. The current rate of expansion is sufficient to stabilize strings, but not textures. (letter to the editor)
Light $U(1)$s in heterotic string models
Mehta, Viraf M
2015-01-01
We present a novel string-derived $U(1)$ combination that satisfies necessary properties to survive to low scales. We discuss previous attempts at acquiring such an abelian gauge symmetry from two different string embeddings and the pitfalls associated with them. Finally, we give an example of how a satisfactory model may be constructed within our framework.
Color screening masses from string models
Andreev, Oleg
2016-01-01
We use gauge/string duality to estimate the Debye screening mass at non-zero temperature and baryon chemical potential. We interpret this mass as the smallest one in the open string channel. Comparisons are made with the results from holography and lattice QCD.
Composite vector mesons and string models
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The author discusses the general question of gauge mesons in extended supergravities, and whether such theories can produce the gauge mesons corresponding to a group at least as large as SU(3) x SU(2) x U(1). An exciting conjecture in this direction was made a few years ago by previous authors, who suggested that there might be composite SU(8) gauge mesons in a supergravity model known as the N=8 model. Until we have a consistent, renormalizable theory of supergravity we cannot really obtain any indication of the truth or falseness of that conjecture. One form of the Neveu-Schwarz string model has been shown to be a theory of supergravity; it is finite at the one-loop level and probably in any order of perturbation theory. The discussion is within the framework of this model. The author questions whether massive vector mesons can possibly lose their mass due to interactions. Arguments have been given on both sides of this question, and the author believes that this can occur under certain circumstances. Our conclusions is that the FNNS mechanism will create a gauge symmetry in addition to the rigid symmetry

A class of cosmological solutions of massive strings for the Bianchi-IX space-time are obtained within the framework of Lyra geometry. Various physical and kinematical properties of the models are discussed.
The systematic construction of free fermionic heterotic string gauge models
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
It has been shown that the string landscape consists of roughly 10500 string vacua. While the construction of all of these models is currently made infeasible by technological limits, systematic construction schemes can be employed to explore regions of the landscape. These surveys can provide insight into the theory that purely analytical analysis cannot. We discuss one such systematic survey scheme being developed and deployed at Baylor University as well as results of a recently launched survey of layer 2 gauge models
String networks in ZN Lotka-Volterra competition models
Avelino, P. P.; Bazeia, D.; Menezes, J.; de Oliveira, B. F.
2014-01-01
In this Letter we give specific examples of ZN Lotka-Volterra competition models leading to the formation of string networks. We show that, in order to promote coexistence, the species may arrange themselves around regions with a high number density of empty sites generated by predator-prey interactions between competing species. These configurations extend into the third dimension giving rise to string networks. We investigate the corresponding dynamics using both stochastic and mean field theory simulations, showing that the coarsening of these string networks follows a scaling law which is analogous to that found in other physical systems in condensed matter and cosmology.
Hybrid adiabatic potentials in the QCD string model
Kalashnikova, Yu S; Kalashnikova, Yu.S.
2003-01-01
The short- and intermediate-distance behaviour of the hybrid adiabatic potentials is calculated in the framework of the QCD string model. The calculations are performed with the inclusion of Coulomb force. Spin-dependent force and the so-called string correction term are treated as perturbation at the leading potential-type regime. Reasonably good agreement with lattice measurements takes place for adiabatic curves excited with magnetic components of field strength correlators.
Toy model for tachyon condensation in bosonic string field theory
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We study tachyon condensation in a baby version of Witten's open string field theory. For some special values of one of the parameters of the model, we are able to obtain closed form expressions for the stable vacuum state and for the value of the potential at the minimum. We study the convergence rate of the level truncation method and compare our exact results with the numerical results found in the full string field theory. (author)
Discontinuity cylinder model of gravitating U(1) cosmic strings
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Laguna-Castillo, P.; Matzner, R.A.
1987-05-15
We introduce a model for an infinite-length, straight U(1) cosmic string as a cylindrical, singular shell enclosing a region of false vacuum. The properties of the geometry for the region exterior to the string are fully determined under the assumption that changes in the scalar and gauge field variables occur only at the cylindrical shell. This is consistent with a limiting form of the scalar potential V(phi) where a minimum at chemically bondphichemically bond = 0 is separated by a large barrier from a global minimum at chemically bondphichemically bond = etanot =0. The introduction of an approximately singular ''surface'' for the string allows the definition of a delta-function stress-energy density that characterizes discontinuities in the fields. We show consistency of the model with the full coupled equations for the metric, and the scalar and gauge fields in curved space-time. It is found that for this model, in the absence of an ''external'' cosmological constant, the exterior geometry of the string approaches Minkowski space-time with a deficit angle, and it is shown that in the limit when the string becomes a line source, i.e., its radius vanishes, the deficit angle reduces to the well-known expression ..delta..theta = 8..pi mu.., with ..mu.. the proper mass per unit length of the string.

Unified model for vortex-string network evolution
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We describe and numerically test the velocity-dependent one-scale string evolution model, a simple analytic approach describing a string network with the averaged correlation length and velocity. We show that it accurately reproduces the large-scale behavior (in particular the scaling laws) of numerical simulations of both Goto-Nambu and field theory string networks. We explicitly demonstrate the relation between the high-energy physics approach and the damped and nonrelativistic limits which are relevant for condensed matter physics. We also reproduce experimental results in this context and show that the vortex-string density is significantly reduced by loop production, an effect not included in the usual 'coarse-grained' approach
String cosmological models in the Brans-Dicke theory for five-dimensional space-time
Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)
Koijam Manihar Singh; Kangujam Priyokumar Singh
2012-01-01
Five-dimensional space-time string cosmological models generated by a cloud of strings with particles attached to them are studied in the Brans-Dicke theory.We obtain two types of interesting models by taking up the cases of geometric strings (or Nambu strings) and p-strings (Takabayasi strings),and study their different physical and dynamical properties.The roles of the scalar field in getting different phases,such as the inflationary phase and the string-dominated phase,are discussed.An interesting feature obtained here is that in one of the models there is a "bounce" at a particular instant of its evolution.
An Integrated Model for Drill-String Dynamics
Tucker, W. R.; Wang, C.
1999-07-01
The vibrational states experienced by the active components of a drilling assembly such as that found in the oil or gas industry are discussed in the context of an integrated mathematical model. The work is motivated by the need to understand the complex vibrational states that such a system can exhibit in order to better control their constructive and destructive potential. The model is expressed in terms of six continuous independent degrees of freedom. Three locate the position of the centroid of the drill-string in space and three permit the dynamical state of the drill-string to be expressed in terms of flexural, torsional and shear strain, together with dilation and stretch. By supplementing the model with appropriate constitutive relations that relate these strains to bending and twisting couples together with shear and compression forces it can fully accommodate the modes of vibration that are traditionally associated with the motion of drill-strings in both straight and curved boreholes discussed in the engineering literature. These include axial motion along the length of the drill-string, torsional or rotational motion and transverse or lateral motion. Attention is given to the boundary conditions appropriate for an active drill-string and BHA stabiliser including an account of frictional simulations at the rock-interface, cutter simulations for different types of drill-bit and interactions between the bore cavity and the drill-string. The model is used to discuss the stability of axisymmetric drill-string configurations in vertical boreholes under both coupled torsional, axial and lateral perturbations as well as general non-perturbative coupled vibrational states under extreme conditions of lateral whirl.
LRS Bianchi type-I string cosmological models in f (R, T) gravity
Kanakavalli, T.; Ananda Rao, G.
2016-07-01
Spatially homogeneous and anisotropic LRS Bianchi type-I space time is investigated in the presence of cosmic string source in a modified theory of gravitation formulated by Harko et al. (Phys. Rev. D 84:024020, 2011). We have solved the field equations using the equations of state for strings and presented cosmological models which describe geometric string, Takabayasi string and Reddy string in this particular theory. Some physical and kinematical parameters of the models are computed and discussed their physical significance.
Dark Strings and their Couplings to the Standard Model
Hyde, Jeffrey M; Vachaspati, Tanmay
2013-01-01
We consider the Standard Model extended by a hidden sector U(1)_X symmetry that is spontaneously broken at the TeV scale by the vacuum expectation value of an additional scalar field. We study "dark string" solutions in this model and their properties due to the Higgs portal and gauge kinetic mixing operators. We find that dark strings effectively interact with Higgs and Z bosons by linear couplings, and with leptons and baryons via Aharonov-Bohm couplings, thus possibly leading to new cosmological constraints on dark matter models with spontaneously broken extra U(1) symmetry factors.
Super no-scale models in string theory
Kounnas, Costas
2016-01-01
We consider "super no-scale models" in the framework of the heterotic string, where the N=4,2,1 --> 0 spontaneous breaking of supersymmetry is induced by geometrical fluxes realizing a stringy Scherk-Schwarz perturbative mechanism. Classically, these backgrounds are characterized by a boson/fermion degeneracy at the massless level, even if supersymmetry is broken. At the 1-loop level, the vacuum energy is exponentially suppressed, provided the supersymmetry breaking scale is small, m_{3/2} << M_{string}. We show that the "super no-scale string models" under consideration are free of Hagedorn-like tachyonic singularities, even when the supersymmetry breaking scale is large, m_{3/2} ~ M_{string}. The vacuum energy decreases monotonically and converges exponentially to zero, when m_{3/2} varies from M_{string} to 0. We also show that all Wilson lines associated to asymptotically free gauge symmetries are dynamically stabilized by the 1-loop effective potential, while those corresponding to non-asymtoticall...
Abelian cosmic string in the Starobinsky model of gravity
Morais Graça, J. P.
2016-03-01
In this paper, I analyze numerically the behaviour of the solutions corresponding to an Abelian string in the framework of the Starobinsky model. The role played by the quadratic term in the Lagrangian density f(R)=R+η {R}2 of this model is emphasized and the results are compared with the corresponding ones obtained in the framework of Einstein’s theory of gravity. I have found that the angular deficit generated by the string is lowered as the η parameter increases, allowing a well-behaved spacetime for a large range of values of the symmetry-breaking scale.

Spin-orbit couplings in the string model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The spectrum of mesons with high spins is considered in the rotating string model. It is shown that Thomas precession of quarks spins gives rise to spin-orbit coupling. Predictions of the model agree with the experimental data on mass spectrum of mesons with even parity and even spins
Phase structure of string theory and the Random Energy Model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We solve a random energy model with complex replica number and complex temperature values, and discuss the ensuing phase structure. A connection with string models and their phase structure is analyzed from the REM point of view. The REM analysis yields a few integer dimensions as special points of the REM phase diagram. For N = 1 superstrings, there is a distinguished dimension 5
String networks in generalized May-Leonard models

Generalized May-Leonard models have proven to be a powerful tool in the study of the dynamics complex biological and ecological systems. In this letter we give specific examples of models leading to the formation of string networks. We show that, in order to promote coexistence, the species may arrange themselves around regions with a high number density of empty sites generated by predator-prey interactions between competing species. These configurations extend into the third dimension giving rise to string networks. We investigate the corresponding dynamics using both stochastic and mean field theory simulations, showing that the coarsening of these string networks follows a scaling law which is analogous to that found in other physical systems in condensed matter and cosmology.
Models in theory building: the case of early string theory
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The history of the origins and first steps of string theory, from Veneziano's formulation of his famous scattering amplitude in 1968 to the 'first string revolution' in 1984, provides rich material for discussing traditional issues in the philosophy of science. This paper focusses on the initial phase of this history, that is the making of early string theory out of the 'dual theory of strong interactions' motivated by the aim of finding a viable theory of hadrons in the framework of the so-called S-matrix theory of the Sixties: from the first two models proposed (the Dual Resonance Model and the Shapiro-Virasoro Model) to all the subsequent endeavours to extend and complete the theory, including its string interpretation. As is the aim of this paper to show, by representing an exemplary illustration of the building of a scientific theory out of tentative and partial models this is a particularly fruitful case study for the current philosophical discussion on how to characterize a scientific model, a scientific theory, and the relation between models and theories.
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
It is shown that a considerable decrease in a total cross-section of the elastic scattering of relativistic electrons by a crystal atomic string can take place at certain values of particle incidence angles. This effect is similar to the Ramsauer-Townsend effect of slow electrons scattering by an atom. It is shown that the decrease in the angle of particles incidence on the atomic string essentially changes the process of particles scattering. The phenomena of the particle rainbow scattering and orbiting may occur in this case. 14 refs., 5 figs
String Cosmological Models in Five-Dimensional Spacetimes

Sanjay Oli
2009-01-01
We present some classes of solutions for dust matter coupled to the string cloud in five-dimensional Kaluza-Klein spacetimes. The solutions have one or two distinct singularities depending upon the sign of the constant of integration. Some of the classes of models exhibit inflation in the initial stage. The behaviour of associated parameters has been discussed in detail.

This article contains a summary of the author's contributions, one in collaboration with K. Bardakci, to dual models and string theory prior to the mid-seventies.

Scattering of Long Folded Strings and Mixed Correlators in the Two-Matrix Model
Bourgine, J. -E.; Hosomichi, K.; Kostov, I.; Matsuo, Y
2007-01-01
We study the interactions of Maldacena's long folded strings in two-dimensional string theory. We find the amplitude for a state containing two long folded strings to come and go back to infinity. We calculate this amplitude both in the worldsheet theory and in the dual matrix model, the Matrix Quantum Mechanics. The matrix model description allows to evaluate the amplitudes involving any number of long strings, which are given by the mixed trace correlators in an effective two-matrix model.
Recent developments in string model-building and cosmology
Cicoli, Michele
2016-01-01
In this talk I discuss recent developments in moduli stabilisation, SUSY breaking and chiral D-brane models together with several interesting features of cosmological models built in the framework of type IIB string compactifications. I show that a non-trivial pre-inflationary dynamics can give rise to a power loss at large angular scales for which there have been mounting observational hints from both WMAP and Planck. I then describe different stringy embeddings of inflationary models which ...
Three-generation asymmetric orbifold models from heterotic string theory
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Using Z3 asymmetric orbifolds in heterotic string theory, we construct N=1 SUSY three-generation models with the standard model gauge group SU(3)C×SU(2)L×U(1)Y and the left-right symmetric group SU(3)C×SU(2)L×SU(2)R×U(1)B−L. One of the models possesses a gauge flavor symmetry for the Z3 twisted matter
Open strings in the SL(2, R) WZWN model with solution for a rigidly rotating string
DEFF Research Database (Denmark)
Lomholt, Michael Andersen; Larsen, A.L.
2003-01-01
consider open string boundary conditions corresponding to a certain field-dependent gluing condition. This allows us to consider open strings with constant energy and angular momentum. Classically, these open strings naturally generalize the open strings in flat Minkowski space. For rigidly rotating open...... strings, we show that the torsion leads to a bending and an unfolding. We also derive the SL(2, R) Regge relation, which generalizes the linear Minkowski Regge relation. For "high" mass, it takes the form L ≈ ± M/H, where H is the scale of the SL(2, R) group manifold....
Numerical Study of the Simplest String Bit Model
Chen, Gaoli
2016-01-01
String bit models provide a possible method to formulate string as a discrete chain of point-like string bits. When the bit number $M$ is large, a chain behaves as a continuous string. We study the simplest case that has only one bosonic bit and one fermionic bit. The creation and annihilation operators are adjoint representations of $U\\left(N\\right)$ color group. We show that the supersymmetry reduces the parameter number of a Hamiltonian from seven to three and, at $N=\\infty$, ensures continuous energy spectrum, which implies the emergence of one spatial dimension. The Hamiltonian $H_{0}$ is constructed so that in large $N$ limit it produces a worldsheet spectrum with one grassmann worldsheet field. We concentrate on numerical study of the model in finite $N$. For the Hamiltonian $H_{0}$, we find that the would-be ground energy states disappear at $N=\\left(M-1\\right)/2$ for odd $M\\leq11$. Such a simple pattern is spoiled if $H$ has an additional term $\\xi\\Delta H$ which does not affect the result of $N=\\inf...

Bianchi type-V string cosmological models in general relativity
Indian Academy of Sciences (India)
Anil Kumar Yadav; Vineet Kumar Yadav; Lallan Yadav
2011-04-01
Bianchi type-V string cosmological models in general relativity are investigated. To get the exact solution of Einstein’s ﬁeld equations, we have taken some scale transformations used by Camci et al [Astrophys. Space Sci. 275, 391 (2001)]. It is shown that Einstein’s ﬁeld equations are solvable for any arbitrary cosmic scale function. Solutions for particular forms of cosmic scale functions are also obtained. Some physical and geometrical aspects of the models are discussed.
Nielsen, Holger B
2014-01-01
Bosonic string theory with the possibility for an arbitrary number of strings - i.e. a string ?eld theory - is formulated by a Hilbert space (a Fock space), which is just that for massless noninteracting scalars. We earlier presented this novel type of string ?eld theory, but now we show that it leads to scattering just given by the Veneziano model amplitude. Generalization to strings with fermion modes would presumably be rather easy. It is characteristic for our formulation /model that: 1) We have thrown away some null set of information compared to usual string ?eld theory, 2)Formulated in terms of our \\objects" (= the non-interacting scalars) there is no interaction and essentially no time development(Heisenberg picture), 3) so that the S-matrix is in our Hilbert space given as the unit matrix, S=1, and 4) the Veneziano scattering amplitude appear as the overlap between the initial and the ?nal state described in terms of the \\objects". 5) The integration in the Euler beta function making up the Veneziano...
The search for a realistic flipped SU(5) string model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We present an extensive search for a class of flipped SU(5) models built within the free fermionic formulation of the heterotic string. We describe a set of algorithms which constitute the basis for a computer program capable of generating systematically the massless spectrum and the superpotential of all possible models within the class we consider. Our search through the huge parameter space to be explored is simplified considerably by the constraint of N=1 spacetime supersymmetry and the need for extra Q, anti Q representations beyond the standard ones in order to possibly achieve string gauge coupling unification at scales of O(1018 GeV). Our results are remarkably simple and evidence the large degree of redundancy in this kind of constructions. We find one model with gauge group SU(5)xU(1)sub(Y tilde)xSO(10)hxSU(4)hxU(1)5 and fairly acceptable phenomenological properties. We study the D- and F-flatness constraints and the symmetry breaking pattern in this model and conclude that string gauge coupling unification is quite possible. (orig.)
Local models of gauge mediated supersymmetry breaking in string theory
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We describe local Calabi-Yau geometries with two isolated singularities at which systems of D3- and D7-branes are located, leading to chiral sectors corresponding to a semi-realistic visible sector and a hidden sector with dynamical supersymmetry breaking. We provide explicit models with a 3-family MSSM-like visible sector, and a hidden sector breaking supersymmetry at a meta-stable minimum. For singularities separated by a distance smaller than the string scale, this construction leads to a simple realization of gauge mediated supersymmetry breaking in string theory. The models are simple enough to allow the explicit computation of the massive messenger sector, using dimer techniques for branes at singularities. The local character of the configurations makes manifest the UV insensitivity of the supersymmetry breaking mediation
Dilaton stabilization in three-generation heterotic string model
Beye, Florian; Kobayashi, Tatsuo; Kuwakino, Shogo
2016-09-01
We study dilaton stabilization in heterotic string models. By utilizing the asymmetric orbifold construction, we construct an explicit three-generation model whose matter content in the visible sector is the supersymmetric standard model with additional vectorlike matter. This model does not contain any geometric moduli fields except the dilaton field. Model building at a symmetry enhancement point in moduli space enlarges the rank of the hidden gauge group. By analyzing multiple hidden gauge sectors, the dilaton field is stabilized by the racetrack mechanism. We also discuss a supersymmetry breaking scenario and F-term uplifting.
Generic formula of soft scalar masses in string models
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We derive formula of soft supersymmetry breaking scalar masses from 4-dimensional string models within a more generic framework. We consider effects of extra gauge symmetry breakings including an anomalous U(1) breaking through flat directions, that is, D-term and F-term contributions, particle mixing effects and heavy-light mass mixing effects. Some phenomenological implications are discussed based on our mass formula. (author)
Canonical and path integral quantization of string cosmology models
Cavaglia, M; Ungarelli, C.
1999-01-01
We discuss the quantisation of a class of string cosmology models that are characterized by scale factor duality invariance. We compute the amplitudes for the full set of classically allowed and forbidden transitions by applying the reduce phase space and the path integral methods. We show that these approaches are consistent. The path integral calculation clarifies the meaning of the instanton-like behaviour of the transition amplitudes that has been first pointed out in previous investigati...
Lovelock black hole thermodynamics in a string cloud model

The Lovelock theory is an extension of general relativity to higher dimensions. We study the Lovelock black hole for a string cloud model in arbitrary dimensional spacetime, and in turn also analyze its thermodynamical properties. Indeed, we compute the mass, temperature and entropy of the black hole and also perform a thermodynamical stability analysis. The phase structure suggests that the Hawking-Page phase transition is achievable. It turns out that the presence of the Lovelock terms and/...

Remarkable progress has been achieved in the last 10 years in the quantitative understanding of gauge/string duality. For the first time it now appears that it will be possible to find the exact solution of a 4-dimensional interacting quantum field theory. This should have important implications for our understanding of other strongly coupled gauge theories such as Quantum Chromodynamics. The most studied is the most symmetric example of a gauge-string duality—the correspondence between the maximally supersymmetric gauge theory in flat 4 dimensions and superstring theory in a curved space AdS5×S5, also refered to as AdS/CFT duality. The solvability of this model, allowing us for example to compute the dimensions of gauge invariant operators for any value of the coupling, is due to its hidden integrability. At weak coupling this integrability is seen by identifying the dilatation operator which acts on single trace operators in the gauge theory with the Hamiltonian of an integrable 1-dimensional spin chain. At strong coupling, where the operators of the gauge theory are most easily identifiable as string states, integrability is manifested by the underlying integrability of the sigma model defined on the string world sheet. As a result, the exact quantum spectrum is determined by a set of thermodynamic Bethe Ansatz equations.

Numerical study of the simplest string bit model
Chen, Gaoli; Sun, Songge
2016-05-01
String bit models provide a possible method to formulate a string as a discrete chain of pointlike string bits. When the bit number M is large, a chain behaves as a continuous string. We study the simplest case that has only one bosonic bit and one fermionic bit. The creation and annihilation operators are adjoint representations of the U (N ) color group. We show that the supersymmetry reduces the parameter number of a Hamiltonian from 7 to 3 and, at N =∞ , ensures a continuous energy spectrum, which implies the emergence of one spatial dimension. The Hamiltonian H0 is constructed so that in the large N limit it produces a world sheet spectrum with one Grassmann world sheet field. We concentrate on the numerical study of the model in finite N . For the Hamiltonian H0, we find that the would-be ground energy states disappear at N =(M -1 ) /2 for odd M ≤11 . Such a simple pattern is spoiled if H has an additional term ξ Δ H which does not affect the result of N =∞ . The disappearance point moves to higher (lower) N when ξ increases (decreases). Particularly, the ±(H0-Δ H ) cases suggest a possibility that the ground state could survive at large M and M ≫N . Our study reveals that the model has stringy behavior: when N is fixed and large enough, the ground energy decreases linearly with respect to M , and the excitation energy is roughly of order M-1. We also verify that a stable system of Hamiltonian ±H0+ξ Δ H requires ξ ≥∓1 .

The Bianchi type Ⅲ cosmological model for a cloud string with bulk viscosity are presented. To obtaina determinate model, an equation of state p = κλ and a relation between metric potentials B = Cn are assumed. Thephysical and geometric aspects of the model are also discussed. The model describes a shearing non-rotating continuouslyexpanding universe with a big-bang start, and the relation between the coefficient of bulk viscosity and the energy densityis ζ∝1 p1/2.
Phenomenological Hints from a Class of String Motivated Model Constructions

Full Text Available We use string theory constructions towards the generalisation of the supersymmetric standard model of strong and electroweak interactions. Properties of the models depend crucially on the location of fields in extradimensional compact space. This allows us to extract some generic lessons for the phenomenological properties of the low energy effective action. Within this scheme we present a compelling model based on local grand unification and mirage mediation of supersymmetry breakdown. We analyse the properties of the specific model towards its possible tests at the LHC and the complementarity to direct dark matter searches.

Abelian cosmic string in the extended Starobinsky model of gravity
Graça, J P Morais
2016-01-01
We analyze numerically the behaviour of the solutions corresponding to an Abelian cosmic string taking into account an extension of the Starobinsky model, where the action of general relativity is replaced by $f(R) = R - 2\\Lambda + \\eta R^2 + \\rho R^m$, with $m > 2$. As an interesting result, we find that the angular deficit which characterizes the cosmic string decreases as the parameters $\\eta$ and $\\rho$ increase. We also find that the cosmic horizon due to the presence of a cosmological constant is affected in such a way that it can grows or shrinks, depending on the vacuum expectation value of the scalar field and on the value of the cosmological constant
Little string theory from a double-scaled matrix model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Following Lin and Maldacena, we find exact supergravity solutions dual to a class of vacua of the plane wave matrix model by solving an electrostatics problem. These are asymptotically near-horizon D0-brane solutions with a throat associated with NS5-brane degrees of freedom. We determine the precise limit required to decouple the asymptotic geometry and leave an infinite throat solution found earlier by Lin and Maldacena, dual to Little String Theory on S5. By matching parameters with the gauge theory, we find that this corresponds to a double scaling limit of the plane wave matrix model in which N→∞ and the 't Hooft coupling λ scales as ln4(N), which we speculate allows all terms in the genus expansion to contribute even at infinite N. Thus, the double-scaled matrix quantum mechanics gives a Lagrangian description of Little String Theory on S5, or equivalently a ten-dimensional string theory with linear dilaton background
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Within the framework of c=1 matrix models, we consider multi-matrix models, i.e. the quantum mechanics of multi-matrix models. A connection is established between a D-matrix model and a D-dimensional gas of fermions (bosons) for odd (even) values of D. A statistical mechanical analysis yields the scaling law for the free energy, and hence the susceptibility exponents for the various models. The exponents turn out to be positive for the multi-matrix models, suggesting that these could represent models of 2D gravity coupled to c>1 matter. However, a lower-bound on the mass-gap exponents is found (i.e. an upper bound on the Hausdorff dimension) which may render this identification unlikely. Nevertheless, we find certain qualitative features which would be expected of a c>1 theory. For instance, in addition to the positive susceptibility exponent, we find that whereas in the c=1 case the density of states itself diverges as one approaches the critical point, in the D-matrix models various derivatives of the density of states diverge, with the order of the derivative depending on D. This qualitatively different behaviour of the density of states could be a signal of the conjectured 'phase transition' at c=1. (orig.)
Production of charm in the quark-gluon strings model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The quark-gluon strings model based on the 1/Nf - expansion in QCD is applied to the production of the charmed particles D(D-bar)-mesons and Λc+-hyperons. It is demonstrated that the model describes quantitatively the basic characteristics of the inclusive charm production generation. Experimental data indicate to the nonlinearity of the Ψ-mesons Regge trajectory with a close to zero intercept (αΨ(0) ∼ 0). The model predictions for the inclusive spectra of the charmed particles are given in a wide energy range
Solvable models of strings in homogeneous plane wave backgrounds
Blau, Matthias; Papadopoulos, G; Tseytlin, Arkady A; Blau, Matthias; Loughlin, Martin O'; Papadopoulos, George; Tseytlin, Arkady A.
2003-01-01
We solve closed string theory in all regular homogeneous plane-wave backgrounds with homogeneous NS three-form field strength and a dilaton. The parameters of the model are constant symmetric and anti-symmetric matrices k_{ij} and f_{ij} associated with the metric, and a constant anti-symmetric matrix h_{ij} associated with the NS field strength. In the light-cone gauge the rotation parameters f_{ij} have a natural interpretation as a constant magnetic field. This is a generalisation of the standard Landau problem with oscillator energies now being non-trivial functions of the parameters f_{ij} and k_{ij}. We develop a general procedure for solving linear but non-diagonal equations for string coordinates, and determine the corresponding oscillator frequencies, the light-cone Hamiltonian and level matching condition. We investigate the resulting string spectrum in detail in the four-dimensional case and compare the results with previously studied examples. Throughout we will find that the presence of the rotat...
D-term spectroscopy in realistic heterotic-string models
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The recent emergence of free fermionic heterotic string models with solely the MSSM charged spectrum below the string scale reinforces the motivation to investigate the pheneomelogical characteristics of this class of string models, which possess an underlying Z2xZ2 orbifold structure. An important property of the Z2xZ2 orbifold is the cyclic permutation symmetry between the three twisted sectors. If preserved in the three-generation models the cyclic permutation symmetry results in a family universal anomalous U(1)A, which is instrumental in explaining squark degeneracy, provided that the dominant component of supersymmetry breaking arises from the U(1)A D term. Interestingly, the contribution of the family-universal DA term to the squark masses may be intrafamily nonuniversal, and may differ from the usual (universal) boundary conditions assumed in the MSSM. We contemplate how DA-term spectroscopy may be instrumental in studying superstring models irrespective of our ignorance of the details of supersymmetry breaking. We examine the possible effect of the intrafamily nonuniversality on the resulting SUSY spectrum and the values of the strong coupling, effective weak mixing angle, and W-gauge boson mass, up to a two-loop accuracy, in the two models (universal and nonuniversal). We find that nonuniversality relaxes the constraint of color and charge breaking minima which appears in the universal case. In addition, it predicts a 3% smaller value of αs due to different threshold masses obtained in the latter scenario. Finally, we present the experimentally allowed predictions of the two models in an M0 and M1/2 parameter space. (c) 2000 The American Physical Society
CMB anomalies from an inflationary model in string theory
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Recent Planck measurements show some CMB anomalies on large angular scales, which confirms the early observations by WMAP. We show that an inflationary model, in which before the slow-roll inflation the Universe is in a superinflationary phase, can generate a large-scale cutoff in the primordial power spectrum, which may account for not only the power suppression on large angular scales, but also a large dipole power asymmetry in the CMB. We discuss an implementation of our model in string theory. (orig.)
Topological B-model and ${\\hat c}=1$ String Theory
Hyun, S; Park, J D; Yi, S H; Hyun, Seungjoon; Oh, Kyungho; Park, Jong-Dae; Yi, Sang-Heon
2005-01-01
We study the topological B-model on a deformed $\\Z_2$ orbifolded conifold by investigating variation of complex structures via quantum Kodaira-Spencer theories. The fermionic/brane formulation together with systematic utilization of symmetries of the geometry gives rise to a free fermion realization of the amplitudes. We derive Ward identities which solve the perturbed free energy exactly. We also obtain the corresponding Kontsevich-like matrix model. All these confirm the recent conjecture on the connection of the theory with ${\\hat c}=1$ type 0A string theory compactified at the radius $R=\\sqrt{\\alpha'/2}$.
Non self-conjugate strings, singular strings and rigged configurations in the Heisenberg model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We observe a different type of complex solutions in the isotropic spin-1/2 Heisenberg chain starting from N = 12, where the central rapidity of some of the odd-length strings becomes complex so that not all the strings self-conjugate individually. We show that there are at most (N − 2)/2 singular solutions for M = 4, M = 5 down-spins and at most (N2 − 6N + 8)/8 singular solutions for M = 6, M = 7 down-spins in an even-length chain with N ⩾ 2M. Correspondence of the non self-conjugate string solutions and the singular string solutions to the rigged configurations has also been shown. (paper)
Perturbation theory for string sigma models
Bianchi, Lorenzo
2016-01-01
In this thesis we investigate quantum aspects of the Green-Schwarz superstring in various AdS backgrounds relevant for the AdS/CFT correspondence, providing several examples of perturbative computations in the corresponding integrable sigma-models. We start by reviewing in details the supercoset construction of the superstring action in $AdS_5 \\times S^5$, pointing out the limits of this procedure for $AdS_4$ and $AdS_3$ backgrounds. For the $AdS_4 \\times CP^3$ case we give a thorough derivation of an alternative action, based on the double-dimensional reduction of eleven-dimensional super-membranes. We then consider the expansion about the BMN vacuum and the S-matrix for the scattering of worldsheet excitations in the decompactification limit. To evaluate its elements efficiently we describe a unitarity-based method resulting in a very compact formula yielding the cut-constructible part of any one-loop two-dimensional S-matrix. In the second part of this review we analyze the superstring action on $AdS_4 \\ti...
From topological strings to minimal models

2015-01-01
We glue four refined topological vertices to obtain a $U(2)$ web partition function $\\mathcal{W}_{\\, \\bf V \\, W \\, \\Delta} [q, t, R]$, where ${\\bf V}$ and ${\\bf W}$ are two pairs of Young diagrams, ${\\bf \\Delta}$ is a set of K\\"ahler parameters, $q$ and $t$ are deformation parameters, and $R$ is the radius of the $M$-theory circle. We show that there is 1. a choice of ${\\bf \\Delta}$, $q$ and $t$ as functions of $R$ and two co-prime integers $p$ and $p^{\\prime}$ , and 2. a restriction of ${\\bf V}$ and ${\\bf W}$ to partition pairs that obey $p$- and $p^{\\prime}$-dependent conditions, such that we obtain a restricted version of $\\mathcal{W}_{\\, \\bf V \\, W \\, \\Delta} [q, t, R]$ that 1. is manifestly free of non-physical singularities, and 2. reduces in the $R \\! \\rightarrow \\! 0$ limit to a building block of restricted versions of the 4D $U(2)$ quiver instanton partition functions. The latter are equal, using the AGT correspondence, to conformal blocks of Virasoro $A$-series minimal models parameterised by $p$ an...

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
A theorem concerning fermion interaction is postulated and applied to the problems of atomic (electronic) and nuclear physics. Model building based solely upon the postulate that adjacent like fermions must be singlet paired accounts for the closed shells of both nuclear and atomic structure. The implied antiferromagnetic FCC lattice of protons and neutrons in alternating layers has been found by previous workers to be the lowest-energy solid configuration of nuclear matter (N = P). The buildup of the FCC lattice from a central tetrahedron reproduces all of the shells and subshells of the isotropic harmonic oscillator, which is the basis for the shell model. In atomic structure, the singlet pairing of adjacent electrons implies closed-shell structures uniquely at the six noble gases and the three noble metals, Ni, Pd, and Pt. The basis for the postulate concerning fermions is found in terms of classical electrodynamics; it is a microscopic corollary of Biot-Savart's law that parallel currents attract whereas antiparallel currents repel.

Chern-Simons Theory, Matrix Models, and Topological Strings
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Walcher, J [Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey 08540 (United States)
2006-10-21
This book is a find. Marino meets the challenge of filling in less than 200 pages the need for an accessible review of topological gauge/gravity duality. He is one of the pioneers of the subject and a clear expositor. It is no surprise that reading this book is a great pleasure. The existence of dualities between gauge theories and theories of gravity remains one of the most surprising recent discoveries in mathematical physics. While it is probably fair to say that we do not yet understand the full reach of such a relation, the impressive amount of evidence that has accumulated over the past years can be regarded as a substitute for a proof, and will certainly help to delineate the question of what is the most fundamental quantum mechanical theory. Here is a brief summary of the book. The journey begins with matrix models and an introduction to various techniques for the computation of integrals including perturbative expansion, large-N approximation, saddle point analysis, and the method of orthogonal polynomials. The second chapter, on Chern-Simons theory, is the longest and probably the most complete one in the book. Starting from the action we meet Wilson loop observables, the associated perturbative 3-manifold invariants, Witten's exact solution via the canonical duality to WZW models, the framing ambiguity, as well as a collection of results on knot invariants that can be derived from Chern-Simons theory and the combinatorics of U ({infinity}) representation theory. The chapter also contains a careful derivation of the large-N expansion of the Chern-Simons partition function, which forms the cornerstone of its interpretation as a closed string theory. Finally, we learn that Chern-Simons theory can sometimes also be represented as a matrix model. The story then turns to the gravity side, with an introduction to topological sigma models (chapter 3) and topological string theory (chapter 4). While this presentation is necessarily rather condensed (and the
Affleck-Dine Baryogenesis in Type IIB String Models
Allahverdi, Rouzbeh; Cicoli, Michele; Muia, Francesco
2016-01-01
We present a viable string embedding of Affleck-Dine baryogenesis in type IIB sequestered models where the late-time decay of the lightest modulus reheats the universe to relatively low temperatures. We show that if inflation is driven by a blow-up Kaehler modulus, the Affleck-Dine field can become tachyonic during inflation if the Kaehler metric for matter fields has an appropriate inflaton-dependent contribution. We find that the Affleck-Dine mechanism can generate the observed baryon asymm...

Intermediate scales, μ parameter, and fermion masses from string models
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We address intermediate scales within a class of string models. The intermediate scales occur due to the SM singlets Si acquiring non-zero VEVs due to radiative breaking; the mass squared mi2 of Si is driven negative at μrad due to O(1) Yukawa couplings of Si to exotic particles (calculable in a class of string models). The actual VEV of Si depends on the relative magnitude of the non-renormalizable terms of the type SiK+3/MK in the superpotential. We mainly consider the case in which the Si are charged under an additional non-anomalous U(1)' gauge symmetry and the VEVs occur along F- and D-flat directions. We explore various scenarios in detail, depending on the type of Yukawa couplings to the exotic particles and on the initial boundary values of the soft SUSY breaking parameters. We then address the implications of these scenarios for the μ parameter and the fermionic masses of the standard model. copyright 1998 The American Physical Society
String model for AdS gravity and higher spins
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We construct a string sigma-model with a low-energy limit that describes the anti-de Sitter gravity and spin 3 massless fields in Vasiliev's framelike formalism. The model is based on vertex operators generating vielbein and connection fields in the MacDowell-Mansouri-Stelle-West formulation of gravity. The structure of the vertex operators is based on the hidden symmetry generators in Ramond-Neveu-Schwarz superstring theory, realizing the isometry group of the anti-de Sitter space. The beta-function equations in the sigma-model lead to equations of motion in the MacDowell-Mansouri-Stelle-West gravity with a negative cosmological constant with the anti-de Sitter geometry being the vacuum solution. Generalizations for the higher spin fields are analyzed and equations of motion for spin 3 fields in d=3 in framelike formalism are obtained in the low-energy limit of string theory. These equations correspond to those of sl(3,R) truncated Chern-Simons action based on higher spin algebra hs(1,1).

We describe in detail a Z{sub 6} orbifold compactification of the heterotic E{sub 8} x E{sub 8} string which leads to the (supersymmetric) standard model gauge group and matter content. The quarks and leptons appear as three 16-plets of SO(10), two of which are localized at fixed points with local SO(10) symmetry. The model has supersymmetric vacua without exotics at low energies and is consistent with gauge coupling unification. Supersymmetry can be broken via gaugino condensation in the hidden sector. The model has large vacuum degeneracy. Certain vacua with approximate B-L symmetry have attractive phenomenological features. The top quark Yukawa coupling arises from gauge interactions and is of the order of the gauge couplings. The other Yukawa couplings are suppressed by powers of standard model singlet fields, similarly to the Froggatt-Nielsen mechanism. (Orig.)

The resolution of overlapping ambiguity strings (OAS) is studied based on the maximum entropy model.There are two model outputs,where either the first two characters form a word or the last two characters form a word.The features of the model include one word in context of OAS,the current OAS and word probability relation of two kinds of segmentation results.OAS in training text is found by the combination of the FMM and BMM segmentation method.After feature tagging they are used to train the maximum entropy model.The People Daily corpus of January 1998 is used in training and testing.Experimental results show a closed test precision of 98.64% and an open test precision of 95.01%.The open test precision is 3,76% better compared with that of the precision of common word probability method.
Sequestered String Models: Supersymmetry Breaking and Cosmological Applications
Muia, Francesco
2016-01-01
In the present thesis I studied the phenomenology arising from a class of string models called sequestered compactifications, which were born with the aim of getting low-energy SUSY from strings. This is not an easy task if combined with cosmological constraints, since the mechanism of moduli stabilization fixes both the scale of supersymmetric particles and the scale of moduli, which tend to be of the same order. However, if on the one hand supersymmetric particles with TeV mass are desired in order to address the hierarchy problem, on the other hand the cosmological moduli problem requires the moduli to be heavier than 100 TeV. The specific setup of sequestered compactifications makes this hierarchy achievable, at least in principle: as in these models the visible sector is located on a stack of D3-branes at singularities, a physical separation between the visible degrees of freedom and the SUSY-breaking sources takes place. Such decoupling translates into a hierarchy between the scale of SUSY-breaking and ...
A numerical study of the string function using a primitive equation ocean model
Tyler, R. H.; Käse, R.
We use results from a primitive-equation ocean numerical model (SCRUM) to test a theoretical 'string function' formulation put forward by Tyler and Käse in another article in this issue. The string function acts as a stream function for the large-scale potential energy flow under the combined beta and topographic effects. The model results verify that large-scale anomalies propagate along the string function contours with a speed correctly given by the cross-string gradient. For anomalies having a scale similar to the Rossby radius, material rates of change in the layer mass following the string velocity are balanced by material rates of change in relative vorticity following the flow velocity. It is shown that large-amplitude anomalies can be generated when wind stress is resonant with the string function configuration.

Full Text Available Comparative analysis whether considering the lateral inertia or not, aiming at the longitudinal vibration of the drill string in drilling progress, is proposed. In the light of the actual condition, the mechanical model of the drill string about vibration is established on the basis of the theoretical analysis. Longitudinal vibration equation of the drill string is derived from the Rayleigh-Love model and one-dimensional viscoelastic model. According to the Laplace transform method and the relationships among parameters of the model, the solutions to complex impedance at the bottom of the drill string are obtained, and then the comparison results are analyzed, which is the lateral inertia effect on longitudinal vibration characteristics. The researches show that the smaller the length of the drill string, the greater the cross-sectional area of the drill string, the greater the damping coefficient of bottom hole on the bottom of the drill string, and the more evident the effect on the dynamic stiffness of the drill string with lateral inertia effect. The Poisson ratio of the drill string only has some effects on it taking account of the lateral inertia effect, and the influence is relatively small compared with the former three conditions.

In the present work, Monte-Carlo toy model with repulsing quark-gluon strings in hadron-hadron collisions is described. String repulsion creates transverse boosts for the string decay products, giving modifications of observables.

Cosmic string solutions of the abelian Higgs model with conformal coupling to gravity are shown to exist. The main characteristics of the solutions are presented and the differences with respect to the minimally coupled case are studied. An important difference is the absence of Bogomolnyi cosmic string solutions for conformal coupling. Several new features of the abelian Higgs cosmic strings of both types are discussed. The most interesting is perhaps a relation between the angular deficit a...
Diffeomorphisms as symplectomorphisms in history phase space: Bosonic string model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The structure of the history phase space G of a covariant field system and its history group (in the sense of Isham and Linden) is analyzed on an example of a bosonic string. The history space G includes the time map T from the spacetime manifold (the two-sheet) Y to a one-dimensional time manifold T as one of its configuration variables. A canonical history action is posited on G such that its restriction to the configuration history space yields the familiar Polyakov action. The standard Dirac-ADM action is shown to be identical with the canonical history action, the only difference being that the underlying action is expressed in two different coordinate charts on G. The canonical history action encompasses all individual Dirac-ADM actions corresponding to different choices T of foliating Y. The history Poisson brackets of spacetime fields on G induce the ordinary Poisson brackets of spatial fields in the instantaneous phase space G0 of the Dirac-ADM formalism. The canonical history action is manifestly invariant both under spacetime diffeomorphisms Diff Y and temporal diffeomorphisms Diff T. Both of these diffeomorphisms are explicitly represented by symplectomorphisms on the history phase space G. The resulting classical history phase space formalism is offered as a starting point for projection operator quantization and consistent histories interpretation of the bosonic string model
Phenomenology of twisted moduli in type I string inspired models
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We make a first study of the phenomenological implications of twisted moduli in type I intersecting D5-brane models, focussing on the resulting predictions at the LHC using SOFTSUSY to estimate the Higgs and sparticle spectra. Twisted moduli can play an important role in giving a viable string realisation of sequestering in the limit where supersymmetry breaking comes entirely from the twisted moduli. We focus on a particular string inspired version of gaugino mediation in which the first two families are localised at the intersection between D5-branes, whereas the third family and Higgs doublets are allowed to move within the world-volume of one of the branes. The soft supersymmetry breaking third family sfermion mass terms are then in general non-degenerate with the first two families. We place constraints upon parameter space and predictions of flavour changing neutral current effects. Twisted moduli domination is studied and, as well as solving the most serious part of the SUSY flavour problem, is shown to be highly constrained. The constraints are weakened by switching on gravity-mediated contributions from the dilaton and untwisted T-moduli sectors. In the twisted moduli domination limit we predict a stop-heavy MSSM spectrum and quasi-degenerate lightest neutralino and chargino states with wino-dominated mass eigenstates. (author)
The Consensus String Problem and the Complexity of Comparing Hidden Markov Models
DEFF Research Database (Denmark)
Lyngsø, Rune Bang; Pedersen, Christian Nørgaard Storm
2002-01-01
The basic theory of hidden Markov models was developed and applied to problems in speech recognition in the late 1960s, and has since then been applied to numerous problems, e.g. biological sequence analysis. Most applications of hidden Markov models are based on efficient algorithms for computing...... the probability of generating a given string, or computing the most likely path generating a given string. In this paper we consider the problem of computing the most likely string, or consensus string, generated by a given model, and its implications on the complexity of comparing hidden Markov...... models. We show that computing the consensus string, and approximating its probability within any constant factor, is NP-hard, and that the same holds for the closely related labeling problem for class hidden Markov models. Furthermore, we establish the NP-hardness of comparing two hidden Markov models...

We consider a critical composite superconformal string model to desribe hadronic interactions. We present a new approach of introducing hadronic quantum numbers in the scattering amplitudes. The physical states carry the quantum numbers and form a common system of eigenfunctions of the operators in this string model. We give explicit constructions of the quantum number operators.

The physical and geometrical properties of the models are discussed. (geophysics, astronomy, and astrophysics)
Detailed string stability analysis for bi-directional optimal velocity model

The class of bi-directional optimal velocity models can describe the bi-directional looking effect that usually exists in the reality and is even enhanced with the development of the connected vehicle technologies. Its combined string stability condition can be obtained through the method of the ring-road based string stability analysis. However, the partial string stability about traffic fluctuation propagated backward or forward was neglected, which will be analyzed in detail in this work by the method of transfer function and its H∞norm from the viewpoint of control theory. Then, through comparing the conditions of combined and partial string stabilities, their relationships can make traffic flow be divided into three distinguishable regions, displaying various combined and partial string stability performance. Finally, the numerical experiments verify the theoretical results and find that the final displaying string stability or instability performance results from the accumulated and offset effects of traffic fluctuations propagated from different directions.

We find “universal” contributions, independent of the regulator masses and tree level soft supersymmetry breaking, that contribute gaugino masses and A-terms equal to the “anomaly mediated” contributions found in analyses using spurion techniques, as well as a scalar mass term not identified in those analyses. The universal terms are in general modified—and in some cases canceled—by model- dependent terms. We emphasize the model dependence of loop-induced soft terms in the potential, which are much more sensitive to the details of Planck scale physics then are the one loop contributions to gaugino masses. Next, a systematic analysis of soft supersymmetry breaking terms at the one loop level is performed in a large class of string e...
Low and high PT physics in the fire string model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The aim of this paper is to present a number of results obtained by the Fire String Model applied to proton-proton scattering in the last years. This model was used to reproduce final states from several scattering processes: electron-positron annihilation, lepton-hadron deep inelastic scattering, proton-proton and antiproton-proton scattering. In proton-proton scattering we first studied the main part of the cross section, i.e. the low pT physics. The NA5 experiment showed up that this kind of physics dominates at energies in the range of the CERN-SPS (150 divided-by 300 GeV). In particular this experiment demonstrated that a large transverse energy deposition is associated (most of the time) with space structures that are not jet-like, but rather diffuse in the whole transverse plane

In hidden sector models with an extra U(1) gauge group, new fields can interact with the Standard Model only through gauge kinetic mixing and the Higgs portal. After the U(1) is spontaneously broken, these interactions couple the resultant cosmic strings to Standard Model particles. We calculate the spectrum of radiation emitted by these ''dark strings'' in the form of Higgs bosons, Z bosons, and Standard Model fermions assuming that string tension is above the TeV scale. We also calculate the scattering cross sections of Standard Model fermions on dark strings due to the Aharonov-Bohm interaction. These radiation and scattering calculations will be applied in a subsequent paper to study the cosmological evolution and observational signatures of dark strings.

Quantum Theory of Strings in Abelian Higgs Model
Akhmedov, E. T.; Chernodub, M. N.; Polikarpov, M.I.; Zubkov, M.A.
1995-01-01
Starting from the Abelian Higgs field theory, we construct the theory of quantum Abrikosov--Nielsen--Olesen strings. It is shown that in four space -- time dimensions in the limit of infinitely thin strings, the conformal anomaly is absent, and the quantum theory exists. We also study an analogue of the Aharonov--Bohm effect: the corresponding topological interaction is proportional to the linking number of the string world sheet and the particle world trajectory. The creation operators of th...
Asymptotic Freedom in a String Model of High Temperature QCD
Awada, Moustafa
1995-01-01
Recently we have shown that a phase transition occurs in the leading and sub-leading approximation of the large N limit in rigid strings coupled to long range Kalb-Ramond interactions. The disordered phase is essentially the Nambu-Goto-Polyakov string theory while the ordered phase is a new theory. In this letter we compute the free energy per unit length of the interacting rigid string at finite temperature. We show that the mass of the winding states solves that of QCD strings in the limit ...
SUSY breaking in local string/F-theory models
Blumenhagen, R.; Conlon, J. P.; Krippendorf, S.; Moster, S.; Quevedo, F.
2009-09-01
We investigate bulk moduli stabilisation and supersymmetry breaking in local string/F-theory models where the Standard Model is supported on a del Pezzo surface or singularity. Computing the gravity mediated soft terms on the Standard Model brane induced by bulk supersymmetry breaking in the LARGE volume scenario, we explicitly find suppressions by Ms/MP ~ Script V-1/2 compared to M3/2. This gives rise to several phenomenological scenarios, depending on the strength of perturbative corrections to the effective action and the source of de Sitter lifting, in which the soft terms are suppressed by at least MP/Script V3/2 and may be as small as MP/Script V2. Since the gravitino mass is of order M3/2 ~ MP/Script V, for TeV soft terms all these scenarios give a very heavy gravitino (M3/2 >= 108 GeV) and generically the lightest moduli field is also heavy enough (m >= 10 TeV) to avoid the cosmological moduli problem. For TeV soft terms, these scenarios predict a minimal value of the volume to be Script V ~ 106-7 in string units, which would give a unification scale of order MGUT ~ MsScript V1/6 ~ 1016 GeV. The strong suppression of gravity mediated soft terms could also possibly allow a scenario of dominant gauge mediation in the visible sector but with a very heavy gravitino M3/2 > 1 TeV.
Affleck-Dine Baryogenesis in Type IIB String Models
Allahverdi, Rouzbeh; Muia, Francesco
2016-01-01
We present a viable string embedding of Affleck-Dine baryogenesis in type IIB sequestered models where the late-time decay of the lightest modulus reheats the universe to relatively low temperatures. We show that if inflation is driven by a blow-up Kaehler modulus, the Affleck-Dine field can become tachyonic during inflation if the Kaehler metric for matter fields has an appropriate inflaton-dependent contribution. We find that the Affleck-Dine mechanism can generate the observed baryon asymmetry for natural values of the underlying parameters which lead also to successful inflation and low-energy gaugino masses in a split supersymmetry scenario. The reheating temperature from the lightest modulus decay is high enough to allow thermal Higgsino-like dark matter.
Integrable Models, SUSY Gauge Theories, and String Theory
Nam, S
1996-01-01
We consider the close relation between duality in N=2 SUSY gauge theories and integrable models. Vario us integrable models ranging from Toda lattices, Calogero models, spinning tops, and spin chains are re lated to the quantum moduli space of vacua of N=2 SUSY gauge theories. In particular, SU(3) gauge t heories with two flavors of massless quarks in the fundamental representation can be related to the spec tral curve of the Goryachev-Chaplygin top, which is a Nahm's equation in disguise. This can be generaliz ed to the cases with massive quarks, and N_f = 0,1,2, where a system with seven dimensional phas e space has the relevant hyperelliptic curve appear in the Painlevé test. To understand the stringy o rigin of the integrability of these theories we obtain exact nonperturbative point particle limit of ty pe II string compactified on a Calabi-Yau manifold, which gives the hyperelliptic curve of SU(2) QCD w ith N_f =1 hypermultiplet.
Searching for inflation in simple string theory models: An astrophysical perspective
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Attempts to connect string theory with astrophysical observation are hampered by a jargon barrier, where an intimidating profusion of orientifolds, Kaehler potentials, etc. dissuades cosmologists from attempting to work out the astrophysical observables of specific string theory solutions from the recent literature. We attempt to help bridge this gap by giving a pedagogical exposition with detailed examples, aimed at astrophysicists and high energy theorists alike, of how to compute predictions for familiar cosmological parameters when starting with a 10-dimensional string theory action. This is done by investigating inflation in string theory, since inflation is the dominant paradigm for how early universe physics determines cosmological parameters. We analyze three explicit string models from the recent literature, each containing an infinite number of vacuum solutions. Our numerical investigation of some natural candidate inflatons, the so-called 'moduli fields', fails to find inflation. We also find in the simplest models that, after suitable field redefinitions, vast numbers of these vacua differ only in an overall constant multiplying the effective inflaton potential, a difference which affects neither the potential's shape nor its ability to support slow-roll inflation. This illustrates that even having an infinite number of vacua does not guarantee having inflating ones. This may be an artifact of the simplicity of the models that we study. Instead, more complicated string theory models appear to be required, suggesting that identifying the inflating subset of the string landscape will be challenging
Renormalization Group Analysis of a Quivering String Model of Posture Control
Alonso-Sanchez, Francisco; Hochberg, David
2000-01-01
Scaling concepts and renormalization group (RG) methods are applied to a simple linear model of human posture control consisting of a trembling or quivering string subject to damping and restoring forces. The string is driven by uncorrelated white Gaussian noise intended to model the corrections of the physiological control system. We find that adding a weak quadratic nonlinearity to the posture control model opens up a rich and complicated phase space (representing the dynamics) with various...
General analysis of dark radiation in sequestered string models
Cicoli, Michele; Muia, Francesco
2015-12-01
We perform a general analysis of axionic dark radiation produced from the decay of the lightest modulus in the sequestered LARGE Volume Scenario. We discuss several cases depending on the form of the Kähler metric for visible sector matter fields and the mechanism responsible for achieving a de Sitter vacuum. The leading decay channels which determine dark radiation predictions are to hidden sector axions, visible sector Higgses and SUSY scalars depending on their mass. We show that in most of the parameter space of split SUSY-like models squarks and sleptons are heavier than the lightest modulus. Hence dark radiation predictions previously obtained for MSSM-like cases hold more generally also for split SUSY-like cases since the decay channel to SUSY scalars is kinematically forbidden. However the inclusion of string loop corrections to the Kähler potential gives rise to a parameter space region where the decay channel to SUSY scalars opens up, leading to a significant reduction of dark radiation production. In this case, the simplest model with a shift-symmetric Higgs sector can suppress the excess of dark radiation Δ N eff to values as small as 0 .14, in perfect agreement with current experimental bounds. Depending on the exact mass of the SUSY scalars all values in the range 0 .14 ≲ Δ N eff ≲ 1 .6 are allowed. Interestingly dark radiation overproduction can be avoided also in the absence of a Giudice-Masiero coupling.
Bianchi type-VIh string cloud cosmological models with bulk viscosity
Tripathy, Sunil K.; Behera, Dipanjali
2010-11-01
String cloud cosmological models are studied using spatially homogeneous and anisotropic Bianchi type VIh metric in the frame work of general relativity. The field equations are solved for massive string cloud in presence of bulk viscosity. A general linear equation of state of the cosmic string tension density with the proper energy density of the universe is considered. The physical and kinematical properties of the models have been discussed in detail and the limits of the anisotropic parameter responsible for different phases of the universe are explored.

Strings in AdS3 and the SL(2,R) WZW Model. Part 1: The spectrum
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
In this paper we study the spectrum of bosonic string theory on AdS3. We study classical solutions of the SL(2,R) WZW model, including solutions for long strings with non-zero winding number. We show that the model has a symmetry relating string configurations with different winding numbers. We then study the Hilbert space of the WZW model, including all states related by the above symmetry. This leads to a precise description of long strings. We prove a no-ghost theorem for all the representations that are involved and discuss the scattering of the long string

Most theoretical studies of bowed-string instruments deal with isolated strings, pinned on fixed supports. In others, the instrument body dynamics have been accounted by using extremely simplified models of the string-body interaction through the instrument bridge. Such models have, nevertheless, been instrumental to the understanding of a very common and musically undesirable phenomenon known as the wolf note—a strong beating interplay between string and body vibrations. Cellos, bad and good, are particularly prone to this problem. In previous work, a computational method that allows efficient time-domain modelling of bowed strings based on a modal approach has been introduced. This has been extended to incorporate the complex dynamics of real-life instrument bodies, and their coupling to the string motions, using experimental dynamical body data. The string is modelled using its unconstrained modes, assuming pinned-pinned boundary conditions at the tailpiece and the nut. At the intermediary bridge location, the string-body coupling is enforced using the body impulse-response or modal data, as measured at the instrument bridge. In the present paper, this computational approach is applied to a specific cello, which provided experimental wolf-behaviour data under several bowing conditions, as well as laboratory measurements of the bridge impulse responses on which the numerical simulations were based. Interesting aspects of the string-body dynamical responses are highlighted by numerical simulations and the corresponding sounds and animations produced. Finally, a qualitative (and, when possible, quantitative) comparison of the experimental and numerical results is presented.

Nonlinear dynamics of torsional waves in a drill-string model with spatial extent

2007-01-01
In this paper we investigate the dynamics and bifurcations of an oil-well drill-string model that takes the form of a neutral delay differential equation (NDDE). We consider the torsional mode of the drill-string and investigate the associated stick-slip motion. To analyse the model we develop numerical continuation routines based on Fourier-methods since existing routines based on polynomial approximations are unable to cope with the presence of arbitrarily weakly damped modes. We find `reso...

Nonlinear combination parametric resonance is investigated for an axially accelerating viscoelastic string.The governing equation of in-planar motion of the string is established by introducing a coordinate transform in the Eulerian equation of a string with moving boundaries.The string under investigation is constituted by the standard linear solid model in which the material,not partial,time derivative was used.The governing equation leads to the Mote model for transverse vibration by omitting the longitudinal component and higher order terms.The Kirchhoff model is derived from the Mote model by replacing the tension with the averaged tension over the string.The two models are respectively analyzed via the method of multiple scales for principal parametric resonance.The amplitudes and the existence conditions of steady-state response and its stability can be numerically determined.Numerical calculations demonstrate the effects of the string material parameters,the initial tension,and the axial speed fluctuation amplitude.The outcomes of the two models are qualitatively and quantitatively compared.

In this Letter we give specific examples of Z{sub N} Lotka–Volterra competition models leading to the formation of string networks. We show that, in order to promote coexistence, the species may arrange themselves around regions with a high number density of empty sites generated by predator–prey interactions between competing species. These configurations extend into the third dimension giving rise to string networks. We investigate the corresponding dynamics using both stochastic and mean field theory simulations, showing that the coarsening of these string networks follows a scaling law which is analogous to that found in other physical systems in condensed matter and cosmology.
A simple model for the evolution of a non-Abelian cosmic string network
Cella, G
2015-01-01
In this paper we present the results of numerical simulations intended to study the behavior of non-Abelian cosmic strings networks. In particular we are interested in discussing the variations in the asymptotic behavior of the system as we variate the number of generators for the topological defects. A simple model which should generate cosmic strings is presented and its lattice discretization is discussed. The evolution of the generated cosmic string networks is then studied for different values for the number of generators for the topological defects. Scaling solution appears to be approached in most cases and we present an argument to justify the lack of scaling for the residual cases.

We present a significant update of the constraints on the Abelian Higgs cosmic string tension by cosmic microwave background (CMB) data, enabled both by the use of new high-resolution CMB data from suborbital experiments as well as the latest results of the WMAP satellite, and by improved predictions for the impact of Abelian Higgs cosmic strings on the CMB power spectra. The new cosmic string spectra [1] were improved especially for small angular scales, through the use of larger Abelian Higgs string simulations and careful extrapolation. If Abelian Higgs strings are present then we find improved bounds on their contribution to the CMB anisotropies, fdAH AH −6, both at 95% confidence level using WMAP7 data; and fdAH AH −6 using all the CMB data. We also find that using all the CMB data, a scale invariant initial perturbation spectrum, ns = 1, is now disfavoured at 2.4σ even if strings are present. A Bayesian model selection analysis no longer indicates a preference for strings

Full Text Available Multi-stage SRV fracturing in horizontal wells is a new technology developed at home and abroad in recent years to effectively develop shale gas or low-permeability reservoirs, but on the other hand makes the mechanical environment of fracturing strings more complicated at the same time. In view of this, based on the loading features of tubing strings during the multi-stage fracturing of a horizontal well, mechanical models were established for three working cases of multiple packer setting, open differential-pressure sliding sleeve, and open ball-injection sliding sleeve under a hold-down packer. Moreover, mathematical models were respectively built for the above three cases. According to the Lame formula and Von Mises stress calculation formula for the thick-walled cylinder in the theory of elastic mechanics, a mathematical model was also established to calculate the equivalent stress for tubing string safety evaluation when the fracturing string was under the combined action of inner pressure, external squeezing force and axial stress, and another mathematical model was built for the mechanical strength and safety evaluation of multi-stage fracturing strings. In addition, a practical software was developed for the mechanical safety evaluation of horizontal well multi-stage fracturing strings according to the mathematical model developed for the mechanical calculation of the multi-packer string in horizontal wells. The research results were applied and verified in a gas well of Tahe Oilfield in the Tarim Basin with excellent effects, providing a theoretical basis and a simple and reliable technical means for optimal design and safety evaluation of safe operational parameters of multi-stage fracturing strings in horizontal wells.

Cosmic strings are linear topological defects that are predicted by some grand unified theories to form during a spontaneous symmetry breaking phase transition in the early universe. They are the basis for the only theories of galaxy formation aside from quantum fluctuations from inflation that are based on fundamental physics. In contrast to inflation, they can also be observed directly through gravitational lensing and their characteristic microwave background anistropy. It has recently been discovered by F. Bouchet and myself that details of cosmic string evolution are very different from the so-called ''standard model'' that has been assumed in most of the string induced galaxy formation calculations. Therefore, the details of galaxy formation in the cosmic string models are currently very uncertain. 29 refs., 9 figs

We consider two Dirichlet p-branes with lower dimensional brane charges and their scattering. We first calculate the cylinder amplitude of the open string with suitable boundary conditions. We compare this result with that in the 11B matrix model. We find agreement between them in the long distance, low velocity, or large field limit. We also find a way to investigate more general boundary conditions for the open string
Note on a closed string field theory from bosonic IIB matrix model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We apply stochastic quantization method to the bosonic part of IIB matrix model, i.e., a naive zero volume limit of large-N Yang-Mills theory, to construct a collective field theory of Wilson loops. The Langevin equation for Wilson loops can be interpreted as the time evolution of closed string fields. The corresponding Fokker-Planck hamiltonian deduces a closed string field theory which describes interacting Wilson loops with manifest Lorentz invariance. (author)

Classification of $SU(4) \\times SU(2) \\times U(1)$ Heterotic-String Models
Faraggi, Alon E
2014-01-01
The free fermionic construction of the heterotic string in four dimensions produced a large space of three generation models with the underlying $SO(10)$ embedding of the Standard Model states. The $SO(10)$ symmetry is broken to a subgroup directly at the string scale. Over the past few years free fermionic models with the Pati-Salam and flipped $SU(5)$ subgroups have been classified. In this paper we extend this classification program to models in which the $SO(10)$ symmetry is broken at the string level to the $SU(4)\\times SU(2)_L\\times U(1)_R$ (SU421) subgroup. The subspace of free fermionic models that we consider corresponds to symmetric ${\\mathbb{Z}}_2 \\times {\\mathbb{Z}}_2$ orbifolds. We provide a general argument that shows that this class of SU421 free fermionic models cannot produce viable three generation models.
Nonlinear Model and Qualitative Analysis for Coupled Axial/Torsional Vibrations of Drill String
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
Fushen Ren
2016-01-01
Full Text Available A nonlinear dynamics model and qualitative analysis are presented to study the key effective factors for coupled axial/torsional vibrations of a drill string, which is described as a simplified, equivalent, flexible shell under axial rotation. Here, after dimensionless processing, the mathematical models are obtained accounting for the coupling of axial and torsional vibrations using the nonlinear dynamics qualitative method, in which excitation loads and boundary conditions of the drill string are simplified to a rotating, flexible shell. The analysis of dynamics responses is performed by means of the Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method, in which the rules that govern the changing of the torsional and axial excitation are revealed, and suggestions for engineering applications are also given. The simulation analysis shows that when the drill string is in a lower-speed rotation zone, the torsional excitation is the key factor in the coupling vibration, and increasing the torsional stress of the drill string more easily leads to the coupling vibration; however, when the drill string is in a higher-speed rotating zone, the axial excitation is a key factor in the coupling vibration, and the axial stress in a particular interval more easily leads to the coupling vibration of the drill string.

In this paper, we discuss the important question of how to extrapolate a given zero-temperature string model to finite temperature. It turns out that this issue is surprisingly subtle, and we show that many of the standard results require modification. For concreteness, we focus on the case of the ten-dimensional SO(32) heterotic string, and show that the usual finite-temperature extrapolation for this string is inconsistent at the level of a proper worldsheet theory. We then derive the proper extrapolation, and in the process uncover a universal Hagedorn temperature for all tachyon-free closed string theories in ten dimensions --- both Type II and heterotic. As we discuss, these results are not in conflict with the well-known exponential growth in the degeneracies of string states in such models. This writeup is a concise summary of our recent paper hep-th/0505233, here presented using a ``bottom-up'' approach based on determining self-consistent finite-temperature extrapolations of zero-temperature string m...
A note on probabilistic models over strings: the linear algebra approach.
Bouchard-Côté, Alexandre
2013-12-01
Probabilistic models over strings have played a key role in developing methods that take into consideration indels as phylogenetically informative events. There is an extensive literature on using automata and transducers on phylogenies to do inference on these probabilistic models, in which an important theoretical question is the complexity of computing the normalization of a class of string-valued graphical models. This question has been investigated using tools from combinatorics, dynamic programming, and graph theory, and has practical applications in Bayesian phylogenetics. In this work, we revisit this theoretical question from a different point of view, based on linear algebra. The main contribution is a set of results based on this linear algebra view that facilitate the analysis and design of inference algorithms on string-valued graphical models. As an illustration, we use this method to give a new elementary proof of a known result on the complexity of inference on the "TKF91" model, a well-known probabilistic model over strings. Compared to previous work, our proving method is easier to extend to other models, since it relies on a novel weak condition, triangular transducers, which is easy to establish in practice. The linear algebra view provides a concise way of describing transducer algorithms and their compositions, opens the possibility of transferring fast linear algebra libraries (for example, based on GPUs), as well as low rank matrix approximation methods, to string-valued inference problems.

Bianchi Type-Ⅲ String Cosmological Model with Bulk Viscosity in General Relativity
Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

2005-01-01
The Bianchi type-Ⅲcosmological model for a cloud string with bulk viscosity are studied. To obtain a determinate solution, it is assumed that the coefficient of bulk viscosity is a power function of the scalar of expansion ζ = kθm and the shear scalar is proportional to scalar of expansion σ∝θ, which leads to the relation between metric potentials B = Cn. The physical features of the model are also discussed. It is found that the power index mhas significant influence on the string model. There is a "big bang" start in the model when m ≤ 1 but there is no the big-bang start when m ＞ 1. In the special case m = 0, the model reduces to the string model of constant coefficient of bulk viscosity that was the result previously given in the literature.

First, for the vortex strings, via a string sigma model, we verify analytically that the reconnection is classically inevitable for small collision velocity and small relative angle. Evolution of the shape of the reconne...

Conformal chiral boson models on twisted doubled tori and non-geometric string vacua
Avramis, Spyros D; Prezas, Nikolaos
2009-01-01
We derive and analyze the conditions for quantum conformal and Lorentz invariance of the duality symmetric interacting chiral boson sigma-models, which are conjectured to describe non-geometric string theory backgrounds. The one-loop Weyl and Lorentz anomalies are computed for the general case using the background field method. Subsequently, our results are applied to a class of (on-shell) Lorentz invariant chiral boson models which are based on twisted doubled tori. Our findings are in agreement with those expected from the effective supergravity approach, thereby firmly establishing that the chiral boson models under consideration provide the string worldsheet description of N=4 gauged supergravities with electric gaugings. Furthermore, they demonstrate that twisted doubled tori are indeed the doubled internal geometries underlying a large class of non-geometric string compactifications.

Full Text Available We considered two types of string models: on the Riemmann space of string coordinates with null torsion and on the Riemman-Cartan space of string coordinates with constant torsion. We used the hydrodynamic approach of Dubrovin, Novikov to integrable systems and Dubrovin solutions of WDVV associativity equation to construct new integrable string equations of hydrodynamic type on the torsionless Riemmann space of chiral currents in first case. We used the invariant local chiral currents of principal chiral models for SU(n, SO(n, SP(n groups to construct new integrable string equations of hydrodynamic type on the Riemmann space of the chiral primitive invariant currents and on the chiral non-primitive Casimir operators as Hamiltonians in second case. We also used Pohlmeyer tensor nonlocal currents to construct new nonlocal string equation.

Full Text Available We describe a technique for estimating control parameters for a plucked string synthesis model using a genetic algorithm. The model has been intensively used for sound synthesis of various string instruments but the fine tuning of the parameters has been carried out with a semiautomatic method that requires some hand adjustment with human listening. An automated method for extracting the parameters from recorded tones is described in this paper. The calculation of the fitness function utilizes knowledge of the properties of human hearing.
On the Wilson loop in the dual representation within the dual Higgs model with dual Dirac strings
Ivanova, V. A.; Troitskaya, N. I.
2001-01-01
The vacuum expectation value of the Wilson loop in the dual representation is calculated in the dual Higgs model with dual Dirac strings. It is shown that the averaged value of the Wilson loop in the dual representation obeys the area-law falloff. Quantum fluctuations of the dual-vector and the Higgs field around Abrikosov flux lines induced by dual Dirac strings in a dual superconducting vacuum and string shape fluctuations are taken into account.
Topological models on the lattice and a remark on string theory cloning
Bachas, Costas; Petropoulos, Marios
1993-01-01
The addition of a topological model to the matter content of a conventional closed-string theory leads to the appearance of many perturbatively-decoupled space-time worlds. We illustrate this by classifying topological vertex models on a triangulated surface. We comment on how such worlds could have been coupled in the Planck era.
Universal and nonperturbative behavior in the one-plaquette model of two-dimensional string theory
Chaudhuri, S; Ooshita, T
1993-01-01
The one-plaquette Hamiltonian of large N lattice gauge theory offers a constructive model of a $1+1$-dimensional string theory with a stable ground state. The free energy is found to be equivalent to the partition function of a string where the world sheet is discretized by even polygons with signature and the link factor is given by a non-Gaussian propagator. At large, but finite, N we derive the nonperturbative density of states from the WKB wave function and the dispersion relations. This is expressible as an infinite, but convergent, series with the inverse of the hypergeometric function replacing the harmonic oscillator spectrum of the $1+1$-dimensional string. In the scaling limit, the series is shown to be finite, containing both the perturbative (asymptotic) expansion of the inverted harmonic oscillator model, and a nonperturbative piece that survives the scaling limit.
Torsional vibrations of helically buckled drill-strings: experiments and FE modelling
Kapitaniak, M.; Hamaneh, V. V.; Wiercigroch, M.
2016-05-01
This paper presents investigations of a complex drill-string vibrations on a novel experimental rig, developed by the Centre for Applied Dynamics Research at the University of Aberdeen. The rig is capable of exhibiting of all major types of drill-string vibrations, including torsional, axial and lateral modes. The importance of this work lies in the fact, that the experimental rig utilizes real industrial drill-bits and rock samples, which after careful identification of Torque On Bit (TOB) speed curves, allows to use an equivalent friction model to accommodate for both frictional and cutting components of the bit-rock interactions. Moreover, the proposed Finite Element model, after a careful calibration, is capable of replicating experimental results, for the prebuckled configuration of the drill-string. This allows us to observe the effect of winding and unwinding of the helical deformation during stick-slip motion.

Modeling uncertainties for local nonlinearities: application to the drill-string dynamics
Ritto, T. G.; Soize, Christian; Sampaio, R
2009-01-01
A probabilistic model is proposed to model uncertainties for local nonlinearities. The model is applied to a slender structure that turns and drills into rocks in search of oil, called drill-string, in which the local nonlinearity is the bit-rock interaction. The Maximum Entropy Principle is used to construct a probabilistic model for the nonlinear operator related to the bit-rock interaction model. A numerical model is developed using the Timoshenko beam theory and it is discretized by means...

Type IIB string theory admits a BPS configuration in which three strings (of different type) meet at a point. Using this three string configuration we construct a string network and study its properties. In particular we prove supersymmetry of this configuration. We also consider string lattices, which can be used to construct BPS states in toroidally compactified string theory.
Modelling of Helium-mediated Quench Propagation in the LHC Prototype Test String-1
Chorowski, M; Serio, L; Van Weelderen, R
2000-01-01
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) prototype test string-1, hereafter referred to as the string, is composed of three ten-meter long prototype dipole magnets and one six-meter long prototype quadrupole magnet. The magnets are immersed in a pressurized static bath of superfluid helium that is maintained at a pressure of about 1 bar and at a temperature of about 1.9 K. This helium bath constitutes one single hydraulic unit, extending along the 42.5 m of the string length. We have measured the triggering of quenches of the string magnets due to the quenching of a single dipole magnet located at the string's extremity; i.e. "quench propagation". Previously reported measurements enabled to establish that in this configuration the quench propagation is mediated by the helium and not by the inter-magnet busbar connections [1], [2]. We present a model of helium mediated quench propagation based on the qualitative conclusions of these two previous papers, and on additional information gained from a dedicated series of qu...

After the termination of perturbative QCD tree evolution, colourless clusters are formed. Similarly, after the first generation cuts in the (classical) Artru-Mennessier string model, disconnected lengths of string result. The mass spectra of clusters and first generation strings are similar, and the similarity extends to the rapidity distributions as a function of mass. (author)

The mechanical properties of macroscopic electromagnetically coupled string models in a flat or curved background are treated using a covariant formalism allowing the construction of a duality transformation that relates the category of uniform ''electric'' string models, constructed as the (nonconducting) charged generalisation of ordinary uncoupled (violin type) elastic strings, to a category of ''magnetic'' string models comprising recently discussed varieties of ''superconducting cosmic strings''.

The string prediction models as invariants of time series in the forex market
Pincak, R.
2013-12-01
In this paper we apply a new approach of string theory to the real financial market. The models are constructed with an idea of prediction models based on the string invariants (PMBSI). The performance of PMBSI is compared to support vector machines (SVM) and artificial neural networks (ANN) on an artificial and a financial time series. A brief overview of the results and analysis is given. The first model is based on the correlation function as invariant and the second one is an application based on the deviations from the closed string/pattern form (PMBCS). We found the difference between these two approaches. The first model cannot predict the behavior of the forex market with good efficiency in comparison with the second one which is, in addition, able to make relevant profit per year. The presented string models could be useful for portfolio creation and financial risk management in the banking sector as well as for a nonlinear statistical approach to data optimization.

In this paper we have constructed some five-dimensional Bianchi type-III cosmological models in general relativity when source of gravitational field is a massive string. We obtained different classes of solutions by considering different functional forms of metric potentials. It is also observed that one of the models is not physically acceptable and the other models possess big-bang singularity. The physical and kinematical behaviors of the models are discussed

A Hybrid Resynthesis Model for Hammer-String Interaction of Piano Tones
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
Jensen Kristoffer
2004-01-01
Full Text Available This paper presents a source/resonator model of hammer-string interaction that produces realistic piano sound. The source is generated using a subtractive signal model. Digital waveguides are used to simulate the propagation of waves in the resonator. This hybrid model allows resynthesis of the vibration measured on an experimental setup. In particular, the nonlinear behavior of the hammer-string interaction is taken into account in the source model and is well reproduced. The behavior of the model parameters (the resonant part and the excitation part is studied with respect to the velocities and the notes played. This model exhibits physically and perceptually related parameters, allowing easy control of the sound produced. This research is an essential step in the design of a complete piano model.
String Field Theory of $c\\leq 1$ Noncritical Strings

1993-01-01
We construct a string field Hamiltonian for a noncritical string theory with the continuum limit of the Ising model or its generalization as the matter theory on the worldsheet. It consists of only three string vertices as in the case for $c=0$. We also discuss a general consistency condition that should be satisfied by this kind of string field Hamiltonian.
Spin-String Interaction in QCD Strings
Vyas, Vikram
2007-01-01
I analyse the problem of introducing the spin of the quark and the antiquark in effective QCD strings from the point of view of the Wilson loop for a spin-half particle, or the Super Wilson loop. A string representation of the Super Wilson loop is obtained starting from an effective string representation of a Wilson Loop. The action obtained in this manner is invariant under a worldline supersymmetry and has a boundary term which contains the spin-string interaction. For rectangular loops the spin-string interaction vanishes. If an allowance is made for the finite thickness of the flux tube that is being modelled by a string then we obtain a spin-spin interaction which falls as the fifth power of the distance. Such a term was previously suggested by Kogut and Parisi in the context of a flux-tube model of confinement.
Modeling of wave propagation in drill strings using vibration transfer matrix methods.
Han, Je-Heon; Kim, Yong-Joe; Karkoub, Mansour
2013-09-01
In order to understand critical vibration of a drill bit such as stick-slip and bit-bounce and their wave propagation characteristics through a drill string system, it is critical to model the torsional, longitudinal, and flexural waves generated by the drill bit vibration. Here, a modeling method based on a vibration transfer matrix between two sets of structural wave variables at the ends of a constant cross-sectional, hollow, circular pipe is proposed. For a drill string system with multiple pipe sections, the total vibration transfer matrix is calculated by multiplying all individual matrices, each is obtained for an individual pipe section. Since drill string systems are typically extremely long, conventional numerical analysis methods such as a finite element method (FEM) require a large number of meshes, which makes it computationally inefficient to analyze these drill string systems numerically. The proposed "analytical" vibration transfer matrix method requires significantly low computational resources. For the validation of the proposed method, experimental and numerical data are obtained from laboratory experiments and FEM analyses conducted by using a commercial FEM package, ANSYS. It is shown that the modeling results obtained by using the proposed method are well matched with the experimental and numerical results. PMID:23967925
The Area Law in Matrix Models for Large N QCD Strings
Anagnostopoulos, K. N.; Bietenholz, W.; Nishimura, J.
We study the question whether matrix models obtained in the zero volume limit of 4d Yang-Mills theories can describe large N QCD strings. The matrix model we use is a variant of the Eguchi-Kawai model in terms of Hermitian matrices, but without any twists or quenching. This model was originally proposed as a toy model of the IIB matrix model. In contrast to common expectations, we do observe the area law for Wilson loops in a significant range of scale of the loop area. Numerical simulations show that this range is stable as N increases up to 768, which strongly suggests that it persists in the large N limit. Hence the equivalence to QCD strings may hold for length scales inside a finite regime.

A pressure-drop model has been developed for the U-1 and U-2 loops of the NRU reactor. It provides local pressure distributions between instrument locations at the inlet and outlet of each loop. Piping components and fuel-string assemblies are modeled for single-phase and two-phase flows. The overall pressure drop comprises frictional and form losses, as well as changes due to acceleration and gravity. Detailed pressure profiles have been established along the U-1 and U-2 loops at two powers. The pressure loss over the fuel string is typically larger than losses over the inlet, connecting, and outlet piping components. A linear pressure profile has been observed over the fuel string at low power, indicating single-phase flow in the channel. The pressure profile becomes non-linear at high power, signifying the presence of two-phase flow at the downstream end. Different combinations of fuel type in the string appear to have little impact on the pressure profile. This is mainly due to the similarity of pressure-drop characteristics of the fuel types used in fuel irradiation experiments. (author)

Motivated by the recent progress in the effective string description of the interquark potential in lattice gauge theory, we study interfaces with periodic boundary conditions in the three-dimensional Ising model. Our Monte Carlo results for the associated free energy are compared with the next-to-leading order (NLO) approximation of the Nambu-Goto string model. We find clear evidence for the validity of the effective string model at the level of the NLO truncation
Bianchi Type-Ⅲ String Cosmological Model With Bulk Viscosity and Magnetic Field

@@ The Bianchi type-Ⅲ cosmological model for a cloud string in the presence of bulk viscosity and magnetic field are presented. To obtain the determinate model it is assumed that there is an equation of state ρ = kλ and the scalar of expansion is proportional to the shear scalar θ∝σ, which leads to a relation between metric potentials B = mCn. The physical and geometric aspects of the model are also discussed. The model describes a shearing non-rotating continuously expanding universe with a big-bang start. In the absence of magnetic field, it reduces to the string model with bulk viscosity that was previously given in the literature.

The long-range rapidity correlations between the multiplicities (n-n) and the transverse momentum and the multiplicity (pT-n) of charge particles are analyzed in the framework of the simple string inspired model with two types of sources. The sources of the first type correspond to the initial strings formed in a hadronic collision. The sources of the second type imitate the appearance of the emitters of a new kind resulting from interaction (fusion) of the initial strings. The model enabled to describe effectively the influence of the string fusion effects on the strength both the n-n and the pT-n correlations. It was found that in the region, where the process of string fusion comes into play, the calculation results predict the non-monotonic behaviour of the n-n and pT-n correlation coefficients with the growth of the mean number of initial strings, i.e. with the increase of the collision centrality. It was shown also that the increase of the event-by-event fluctuation in the number of primary strings leads to the change of the pT-n correlation sign from negative to positive. One can try to search these signatures of string collective phenomena in interactions of various nuclei at different energies varying the class of collision centrality and its width.
The Quantum Black Hole as a Hydrogen Atom: Microstates Without Strings Attached
Hooft, Gerard t
2016-01-01
Applying an expansion in spherical harmonics, turns the black hole with its microstates into something about as transparent as the hydrogen atom was in the early days of quantum mechanics. It enables us to present a concise description of the evolution laws of these microstates, linking them to perturbative quantum field theory, in the background of the Schwarzschild metric. Three pieces of insight are obtained: One, we learn how the gravitational back reaction, whose dominant component can be calculated exactly, turns particles entering the hole, into particles leaving it, by exchanging the momentum- and position operators; two, we find out how this effect removes firewalls, both on the future and the past event horizon, and three, we discover that the presence of region II in the Penrose diagram forces a topological twist in the background metric, culminating in antipodal identification. Although a cut-off is required that effectively replaces the transverse coordinates by a lattice, the effect of such a cu...
Propagation of cosmic rays through the atmosphere in the quark-gluon strings model
Erlykin, A. D.; Krutikova, N. P.; Shabelski, Y. M.
1985-01-01
The quark-gluon strings model succeeds in the description of multiple hadron production in the central rapidity region of nucleon-nucleon interctions. This model was developed for hadron-nucleus interactions and used for calculation of the cosmic ray propagation through the atmosphere. It is shown that at energies 10 to the 11th power to the 12th power eV, this model gives a satisfactory description of experimental data. But with the increase of the energy up to approximately 10 to the 14th power eV, results of calculations and of experiments begin to differ and this difference rises with the energy. It may indicate that the scaling violation in the fragmentation region of inclusive spectra for hadron-nucleus interactions is stronger than in the quark-gluon strings model.
Complexity of chromatin folding is captured by the strings and binders switch model.

Chromatin has a complex spatial organization in the cell nucleus that serves vital functional purposes. A variety of chromatin folding conformations has been detected by single-cell imaging and chromosome conformation capture-based approaches. However, a unified quantitative framework describing spatial chromatin organization is still lacking. Here, we explore the "strings and binders switch" model to explain the origin and variety of chromatin behaviors that coexist and dynamically change within living cells. This simple polymer model recapitulates the scaling properties of chromatin folding reported experimentally in different cellular systems, the fractal state of chromatin, the processes of domain formation, and looping out. Additionally, the strings and binders switch model reproduces the recently proposed "fractal-globule" model, but only as one of many possible transient conformations. PMID:22988072

A New Class of Inhomogeneous String Cosmological Models in General Relativity
Pradhan, Anirudh; Singh, R P; Singh, V K
2007-01-01
A new class of solutions of Einstein field equations has been investigated for inhomogeneous cylindrically symmetric space-time with string source. To get the deterministic solution, it has been assumed that the expansion ($\\theta$) in the model is proportional to the eigen value $\\sigma^{1}_{1}$ of the shear tensor $\\sigma^{i}_{j}$. Certain physical and geometric properties of the models are also discussed.

Kovalenko, Vladimir
2014-01-01
The magnitude of long-range correlations between observables in two separated rapidity windows, proposed as a signature of the string fusion and percolation phenomenon, is studied in the framework of non-Glauber Monte Carlo string-parton model, based on the picture of elementary collisions of color dipoles. The predictions, obtained with and without string fusion, demonstrate effects of color string fusion on the observables in Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC: decrease of n-n correlation coefficient with centrality and negative pt-n correlations, if the sufficiently effective centrality estimator is applied. In general case it is shown that the values of n-n and pt-n correlation coefficients strongly depend on the method of collision centrality fixation. In contrast, the predictions obtained for pt-pt correlation have almost no effect of centrality determination method and the corresponding experimental data would produce the strong limitation on the transverse radius of a string.
Light-light and heavy-light mesons in the model of QCD string with quarks at the ends
Nefediev, A V
2002-01-01
The variational einbein field method is applied to the model of the QCD string with quarks at the ends for the case of light-light and heavy-light mesons. Special attention is payed to the proper string dynamics. The correct string slope of the Regge trajectories is reproduced for light-light states which comes out from the picture of rotating string. Masses of several low-lying orbitally and radially excited states in the D, D_s, B, and B_s meson spectra are calculated and a good agreement with the experimental data as well as with recent lattice calculations is found. The role of the string correction to the interquark interaction is discussed at the example of the identification of D*'(2637) state recently claimed by DELPHI Collaboration. For the heavy-light mesons the standard constants used in Heavy Quark Effective Theory are extracted and compared to the results of other approaches.
Semilocal cosmic string networks
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We report on a large-scale numerical study of networks of semilocal cosmic strings in flat space in the parameter regime in which they are perturbatively stable. We find a population of segments with an exponential length distribution and indications of a scaling network without significant loop formation. Very deep in the stability regime strings of superhorizon size grow rapidly and ''percolate'' through the box. We believe these should lead at late times to a population of infinite strings similar to topologically stable strings. However, the strings are very light; scalar gradients dominate the energy density, and the network has thus a global texturelike signature. As a result, the observational constraints, at least from the temperature power spectrum of the cosmic microwave background, on models predicting semilocal strings should be closer to those on global textures or monopoles, rather than on topologically stable gauged cosmic strings
Cubic Twistorial String Field Theory
Berkovits, Nathan; Motl, Lubos
2004-01-01
Witten has recently proposed a string theory in twistor space whose D-instanton contributions are conjectured to compute N=4 super-Yang-Mills scattering amplitudes. An alternative string theory in twistor space was then proposed whose open string tree amplitudes reproduce the D-instanton computations of maximal degree in Witten's model. In this paper, a cubic open string field theory action is constructed for this alternative string in twistor space, and is shown to be invariant under parity ...
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We study the physics of open strings in bosonic and type-II string theories in the presence of unstable D-branes. When the potential energy of the open string tachyon is at its minimum, Sen has argued that only closed strings remain in the perturbative spectrum. We explore the scenario of Yi and of Bergman, Hori, and Yi, who argue that the open string degrees of freedom are strongly coupled and disappear through confinement. We discuss arguments using open string field theory and world sheet boundary renormalization group flows, which seem to indicate otherwise. We then describe a solitonic excitation of the open string tachyon and gauge field with the charge and tension of a fundamental closed string. This requires a double scaling limit where the tachyon is taken to its minimal value and the electric field is taken to its maximum value. The resulting flux tube has an unconstrained spatial profile; and for large fundamental string charge it appears to have light, weakly coupled open strings existing in the core. We argue that the flux tube acquires a size of order α' through sigma model and string coupling effects, and that confinement effects make the light degrees of freedom heavy and strongly interacting

We study the spectrum of bosonic string theory on rotating BTZ black holes, using a SL(2,R) WZW model. Previously, Natsuume and Satoh have analyzed strings on BTZ black holes using orbifold techniques. We show how an appropriate spectral flow in the WZW model can be used to generate the twisted sectors, emphasizing how the spectral flow works in the hyperbolic basis natural for the BTZ black hole. We discuss the projection condition which leads to the quantization condition for the allowed quantum numbers for the string excitations, and its connection to the anomaly in the corresponding conserved Noether current.
Borel and Stokes Nonperturbative Phenomena in Topological String Theory and c=1 Matrix Models
Pasquetti, Sara
2010-01-01
We address the nonperturbative structure of topological strings and c=1 matrix models, focusing on understanding the nature of instanton effects alongside with exploring their relation to the large-order behavior of the 1/N expansion. We consider the Gaussian, Penner and Chern-Simons matrix models, together with their holographic duals, the c=1 minimal string at self-dual radius and topological string theory on the resolved conifold. We employ Borel analysis to obtain the exact all-loop multi-instanton corrections to the free energies of the aforementioned models, and show that the leading poles in the Borel plane control the large-order behavior of perturbation theory. We understand the nonperturbative effects in terms of the Schwinger effect and provide a semiclassical picture in terms of eigenvalue tunneling between critical points of the multi-sheeted matrix model effective potentials. In particular, we relate instantons to Stokes phenomena via a hyperasymptotic analysis, providing a smoothing of the nonp...
String states, loops and effective actions in noncommutative field theory and matrix models
Steinacker, Harold C
2016-01-01
Refining previous work by Iso, Kawai and Kitazawa, we discuss bi-local string states as a tool for loop computations in noncommutative field theory and matrix models. Defined in terms of coherent states, they exhibit the stringy features of noncommutative field theory. This leads to a closed form for the 1-loop effective action in position space, capturing the long-range non-local UV/IR mixing for scalar fields. The formalism applies to generic fuzzy spaces. The non-locality is tamed in the maximally supersymmetric IKKT or IIB model, where it gives rise to supergravity. The linearized supergravity interactions are obtained directly in position space at one loop using string states on generic noncommutative branes.
Higher spin holography and the AdS string sigma model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We analyse the cubic spin-3 interaction in AdS space using the higher spin extension of the string-theoretic sigma-model constructed in our previous work, whose low energy limit is described by the AdS vacuum solution. We find that, in the leading order of the cosmological constant, the spin-3 correlator on the AdS4 string theory side reproduces the structure of the three-point function of composite operators, quadratic in free fields, in the dual d = 3 vector model. The cancellation of holography violating terms in d = 3 is related to the value of the Liouville background charge in d = 4. This article is part of a special issue of Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical devoted to ‘Higher spin theories and holography’. (paper)
Baryogenesis through Collapsing String Loops in Gauged Baryon and Lepton Models
Lew, H
1994-01-01
A scenario for the generation of the baryon asymmetry in the early Universe is proposed in which cosmic string loops, predicted by theories where the baryon and/or lepton numbers are gauged symmetries, collapse during the friction dominated period of string evolution. This provides a mechanism for the departure from thermal equilibrium necessary to have a nonvanishing baryon asymmetry. Examples of models are given where this idea can be implemented. In particular, the model with the gauge symmetry $SU(3)_{c}\\otimes SU(2)_{L}\\otimes U(1)_{Y}\\otimes U(1)_{B} \\otimes U(1)_{L}$ has the interesting feature where sphaleron processes do not violate the baryon and lepton numbers so that no wash out of any initial baryon asymmetry occurs at the electroweak scale.

Multiple production of hadrons at high energies in the model of quark-gluon strings. Theory
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Production of hadrons with small transverse momenta psub(perpendicular) at high energies is considered in the framework of a model based on a picture of quark-gluon string formation in hadron collisions, corresponding to the supercritical Pomeron. The topological 1/Nsub(f) expansion and the color-tube model are used. The inclusive cross sections of hadron (in particular, meson) production are expressed in terms of structure functions and fragmentation functions of quarks. The limiting behaviour of the cross sections at x=p/p0 → and x → O is in agreement with the results of the reggeon theory. It is pointed out that taking into account the rapidity fluctuations of the ends of the quark-gluon strings associated with intrinsic motion of valence quarks in colliding hadrons and including multipomeron configurations it is possible to reproduce the experimentally observed rise of inclusive spectra in a central region
Topological string models for the generalized two-dimensional Yang-Mills theories
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We discuss some aspects of the large N expansions of the generalized two-dimensional Yang-Mills theories (gYM2), and especially, clarify the geometrical meanings of the higher Casimirs. Based on these results we attempt to extend the Cordes-Moore-Ramgoolam topological string model describing the ordinary YM2 to those describing gYM2. The concept of 'deformed gravitational descendants' will be introduced for this purpose. (author)
Strong $CP$ And Axions In The Heterotic String-Derived Model

2016-01-01
After revisiting the heterotic string-derived low-energy effective model of \\cite{Ashfaque:2016ydg, Athanasopoulos:2014bba, Faraggi:2016xnm, Ashfaque:2016jha} constructed in the four-dimensional free fermionic formulation, we find two axions which are either harmful or massive. As a direct consequence, they can not solve the strong $CP$ problem which is in complete agreement with \\cite{Lopez:1990iq, Halyo:1993xn}.

The critical exponent ν for randomly branched polymers with dimensionality d equal to 3, is known exactly as 1/2. Here, we invoke an already available string theory model to predict the remaining static critical exponents. Utilizing results of Hsu et al. (Comput Phys Commun. 2005;169:114-116), results are added for d = 8. Experiment plus simulation would now be important to confirm, or if necessary to refine, the proposed values.

This paper deals with a procedure to perform the identification of the probabilistic model of uncertainties in a bit-rock interaction model for the nonlinear dynamics of a drill-string. The bit-rock interaction model is represented by a nonlinear constitutive equation, whose uncertainties are modeled using the nonparametric probabilistic approach. The identification of the parameter of this probabilistic model is carried out using the maximum likelihood method together with a statistical redu...
Yukawa textures in string unified models with SU(4)circle-times O(4) symmetry
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We discuss the origin of Yukawa textures in the string-inspired and string-derived models based on the gauge group SU(4)circle-times SU(2)L circle-times SU(2)R supplemented by a U(1)X gauged family symmetry. The gauge symmetries are broken down to those of the minimal supersymmetric standard model which is the effective theory below 1016 GeV. The combination of the U(1)X family symmetry and the Pati-Salam gauge group leads to a successful and predictive set of Yukawa textures involving two kinds of texture zeros: horizontal and vertical texture zeros. We discuss both symmetric and nonsymmetric textures in models of this kind, and in the second case perform a detailed numerical fit to the charged fermion mass and mixing data. Two of the Yukawa textures allow a low energy fit to the data with a total χ2 of 0.39 and 1.02, respectively, for three degrees of freedom. We also make a first attempt at deriving the nonrenormalizable operators required for the Yukawa textures from string theory. copyright 1997 The American Physical Society
Infrared Dynamics of a Large N QCD Model, the Massless String Sector and Mesonic Spectra
Dasgupta, Keshav; Mia, Mohammed; Richard, Michael; Trottier, Olivier
2014-01-01
A consistency check for any UV complete model for large N QCD should be, among other things, the existence of a well-defined vector and scalar mesonic spectra. In this paper, we use our UV complete model in type IIB string theory to study the IR dynamics and use this to predict the mesonic spectra in the dual type IIA side. The advantage of this approach is two-fold: not only will this justify the consistency of the supergravity approach, but it will also give us a way to compare the IR spectra and the model with the ones proposed earlier by Sakai and Sugimoto. Interestingly, the spectra coming from the massless stringy sector are independent of the UV physics, although the massive string sector may pose certain subtleties regarding the UV contributions as well as the mappings to actual QCD. Additionally, we find that a component of the string landscape enters the picture: there are points in the landscape where the spectra can be considerably improved over the existing results in the literature. These points...
De Sitter vacua and inflation in no-scale string models
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Gross, Christian
2009-09-15
This thesis studies the question of how de Sitter vacua and slow-roll inflation may be realized in string-motivated models. More specifically, we consider 4d N = 1 supergravity theories (without vector multiplets) with Kaehler potentials which are 'no-scale' at leading order. Such theories frequently arise in the moduli sector of string compactifications. We discuss a condition on the scalar geometry (defined by the Kaehler potential) and on the direction of supersymmetry breaking in the scalar manifold, which has to be met in order for the average of the masses of the sGoldstinos to be positive, and hence for metastable vacua to be possible. This condition also turns out to be necessary for the existence of trajectories admitting slow-roll inflation. Its implications for certain scalar manifolds which arise from Calabi-Yau string compactifications are discussed. In particular, for two-moduli models arising from compactifications of heterotic- and type IIB string theory, a simple criterion on the intersection numbers needs to be satisfied for possible de Sitter phases to exist. In addition, we show that subleading corrections breaking the no-scale property may allow the condition on the scalar geometry to be fulfilled, even when it is violated at leading order. Finally, we develop a procedure to construct superpotentials for a given viable Kaehler potential, such that the scalar potential has a realistic local minimum. We propose two-moduli models, with superpotentials which could arise from flux backgrounds and non-perturbative effects, which have a viable vacuum without employing subleading corrections or an uplifting sector.

Cosmic D-strings as Axionic D-term Strings
Blanco-Pillado, Jose J.; Dvali, Gia; Redi, Michele(INFN — Sezione di Firenze, Via G. Sansone, 1, I-50019, Sesto Fiorentino, Italy)
2005-01-01
In this work we derive non-singular BPS string solutions from an action that captures the essential features of a D-brane-anti-D-brane system compactified to four dimensions. The model we consider is a supersymmetric abelian Higgs model with a D-term potential coupled to an axion-dilaton multiplet. The strings in question are axionic D-term strings which we identify with the D-strings of type II string theory. In this picture the Higgs field represents the open string tachyon of the D-Dbar pa...
LRS Bianchi Type II Massive String Cosmological Models with Magnetic Field in Lyra's Geometry

2013-01-01
Full Text Available Bianchi type II massive string cosmological models with magnetic field and time dependent gauge function ( in the frame work of Lyra's geometry are investigated. The magnetic field is in -plane. To get the deterministic solution, we have assumed that the shear ( is proportional to the expansion (. This leads to , where and are metric potentials and is a constant. We find that the models start with a big bang at initial singularity and expansion decreases due to lapse of time. The anisotropy is maintained throughout but the model isotropizes when . The physical and geometrical aspects of the model in the presence and absence of magnetic field are also discussed.
Some Aspects of the T-Duality Symmetric String Sigma Model
Pezzella, Franco
2015-01-01
A manifestly T-dual invariant formulation of bosonic string theory is discussed here. It can be obtained by making both the usual string compact coordinates and their duals explicitly appear, on the same footing, in the world-sheet action. A peculiarity of such a model is the loss of the local Lorentz invariance which is required to be recovered on-shell. This dictates a constraint on the backgrounds which characterizes the double geometry of the target space. Constant and non-constant backgrounds are considered. In the former case, the local Lorentz constraint implies the geometry of a double torus with an $O(D,D)$ invariance. In the latter, it is shown how and when the $O(D,D)$ invariance still holds and when deformations from it can be implied. Results of the quantization of the free theory are also briefly exhibited.
Non-Abelian discrete gauge symmetries in 4d string models
Berasaluce-Gonzalez, M; Marchesano, F; Regalado, D; Uranga, A M
2012-01-01
We study the realization of non-Abelian discrete gauge symmetries in 4d field theory and string theory compactifications. The underlying structure generalizes the Abelian case, and follows from the interplay between gaugings of non-Abelian isometries of the scalar manifold and field identifications making axion-like fields periodic. We present several classes of string constructions realizing non-Abelian discrete gauge symmetries. In particular, compactifications with torsion homology classes, where non-Abelianity arises microscopically from the Hanany-Witten effect, or compactifications with non-Abelian discrete isometry groups, like twisted tori. We finally focus on the more interesting case of magnetized branes in toroidal compactifications and quotients thereof (and their heterotic and intersecting duals), in which the non-Abelian discrete gauge symmetries imply powerful selection rules for Yukawa couplings of charged matter fields. In particular, in MSSM-like models they correspond to discrete flavour sy...
Unitary-matrix models as exactly solvable string theories
Periwal, Vipul; Shevitz, Danny
1990-01-01
Exact differential equations are presently found for the scaling functions of models of unitary matrices which are solved in a double-scaling limit, using orthogonal polynomials on a circle. For the case of the simplest, k = 1 model, the Painleve II equation with constant 0 is obtained; possible nonperturbative phase transitions exist for these models. Equations are presented for k = 2 and 3, and discussed with a view to asymptotic behavior.

Long-range correlation studies at the SPS energies in MC model with string fusion
Kovalenko, Vladimir
2015-01-01
Studies of the ultrarelativistic collisions of hadrons and nuclei at different centrality and energy enable to explore the QCD phase diagram in a wide range of temperature and baryon density. Long-range correlation studies are considered as a tool, sensitive to the observation of phase transition and the critical point. In the present work, a Monte Carlo model of proton-proton, proton-nucleus, and nucleus-nucleus collisions is applied to heavy and light ion collisions at the cms energy range from a few up to several hundred GeV per nucleon. The model describes the nuclear collisions at the partonic level through interaction of color dipoles and takes into account the effects of string fusion, which can be considered as an alternative to relativistic hydrodynamics way of describing the collective phenomena in heavy-ion collisions. The implementing of both the string fusion and the finite rapidity length of strings allowed to consider the particle production at non-zero baryochemical potential. We calculated th...
A large-D Weyl invariant string model in Anti-de Sitter space
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
In this thesis we present a novel scheme for calculating the bosonic string partition function on certain curved backgrounds related to Anti-de Sitter (AdS) space. We take the concept of a large N expansion from nonlinear sigma models in particle physics and apply it to the bosonic string theory sigma model, where the analogous large dimensionless parameter is the dimension of the target space, D. We then perform a perturbative expansion in negative powers of D, rather than in positive powers of α'/l2 (the conventional expansion parameter). As a specific example of a curved geometry of interest, we focus on an example of the metric proposed by Polyakov [1] to describe the dynamics of the Wilson loop of pure SU(N) Yang-Mills theory, namely AdS space. Using heat kernel methods, we find that within the large-D scheme one can obtain different conditions for Weyl invariance than those found in [2]. This is because our scheme is valid for backgrounds where α'/l2 is no longer small. In particular, we find that it is possible to have a dilaton that depends on the holographic coordinate only, provided one allows mixing of the ghost and matter sectors of the worldsheet theory. This field preserves Poincare invariance in the gauge theory, unlike the conventional dilaton. We also compute a simple string amplitude by constructing certain vertex operators for a scalar field in AdS, and discuss the consequences for the string spectrum. (author)
Macroscopic Strings and "Quirks" at Colliders
Kang, Junhai
2009-01-01
We consider extensions of the standard model containing additional heavy particles ("quirks'') charged under a new unbroken non-abelian gauge group as well as the standard model. We assume that the quirk mass m is in the phenomenologically interesting range 100 GeV--TeV, and that the new gauge group gets strong at a scale Lambda < m. In this case breaking of strings is exponentially suppressed, and quirk production results in strings that are long compared to 1/Lambda. The existence of these long stable strings leads to highly exotic events at colliders. For 100 eV < Lambda < keV the strings are macroscopic, giving rise to events with two separated quirk tracks with measurable curvature toward each other due to the string interaction. For keV < Lambda < MeV the typical strings are mesoscopic: too small to resolve in the detector, but large compared to atomic scales. In this case, the bound state appears as a single particle, but its mass is the invariant mass of a quirk pair, which has an event...

@@ Bianchi type-Ⅰ massive string cosmological model with magnetic field of barotropic perfect fluid distribution through the techniques used by Latelier and Stachel is investigated. To obtain the deterministic model of the universe, it is assumed that the universe is filled with barotropic perfect fluid distribution. The magnetic field is due to electric current produced along the x-axis with infinite electrical condúctivity. The behaviour of the model in the presence and absence of magnetic field together with other physical aspects is further discussed.
A Morphographemic Model for Error Correction in Nonconcatenative Strings
Bowden, T; Bowden, Tanya; Kiraz, George Anton
1995-01-01
This paper introduces a spelling correction system which integrates seamlessly with morphological analysis using a multi-tape formalism. Handling of various Semitic error problems is illustrated, with reference to Arabic and Syriac examples. The model handles errors vocalisation, diacritics, phonetic syncopation and morphographemic idiosyncrasies, in addition to Damerau errors. A complementary correction strategy for morphologically sound but morphosyntactically ill-formed words is outlined.
Non-String Pursuit towards Unified Model on the Lattice
Kawamoto, N
1999-01-01
Non-standard overview on the possible formulation towards a unified model on the lattice is presented. It is based on the generalized gauge theory which is formulated by differential forms and thus expected to fit in a simplicial manifold. We first review suggestive known results towards this direction. As a small step of concrete realization of the program, we propose a lattice Chern-Simons gravity theory which leads to the Chern-Simons gravity in the continuum limit via Ponzano-Regge model. We then summarize the quantization procedure of the generalized gauge theory and apply the formulation to the generalized topological Yang-Mills action with instanton gauge fixing. We find N=2 super Yang-Mills theory with Dirac-K{ä}hler fermions which are generated from ghosts via twisting mechanism. The Weinberg-Salam model is formulated by the generalized Yang-Mills action which includes Connes's non-commutative geometry formulation as a particular case. In the end a possible scenario to realize the program is propose...

Thermodynamics of quantum strings
Morgan, M J
1994-01-01
A statistical mechanical analysis of an ideal gas of non-relativistic quantum strings is presented, in which the thermodynamic properties of the string gas are calculated from a canonical partition function. This toy model enables students to gain insight into the thermodynamics of a simple 'quantum field' theory, and provides a useful pedagogical introduction to the more complicated relativistic string theories. A review is also given of the thermodynamics of the open bosonic string gas and the type I (open) superstring gas. (author)
Topological Landau-Ginzburg model of two-dimensional string theory
Ghoshal, Debashis; Mukhi, Sunil
1994-08-01
We study a topological Landau-Ginzburg model with superpotential W( X) = X-1. This is argued to be equivalent to c = 1 string theory compactified at the self-dual radius. We compute the tree-level correlation function of N tachyons in this theory and show their agreement with matrix-model results. We also discuss the nature of contract terms, the perturbed superpotential and the flow of operators in the small phase space. The role of gravitational descendants in this theory is examined, and the tachyon two-point function in genus 1 is obtained using a conjectured modification of the gravitational recursion relations.
The four-loop string effective action from the bosonic σ-model
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We discuss the formulation of the string effective action, in terms of quantities defined within the bosonic σ-model, at four loops or O(α'4). In particular we show that a recent construction given by Osborn correctly yields the effective action at this order for the minimal subtraction renormalisation scheme. We demonstrate a renormalisation scheme for which Osborn's action reduces to a simpler form proposed by Tseytlin at this order. As part of our analysis, we calculate, using indirect methods, various O(α'4) quantities for the σ-model, in particular the five-loop dilaton β-function. (orig.)

In this study the locally rotationally symmetric (LRS) Bianchi type-I (BI) cosmological model has been investigated in the presence of one dimensional cosmic strings in f(R, T) gravity. The exact solutions of the field equations are obtained through the use of constant deceleration parameter [1] and the scalar expansion is proportional to the shear scalar. Considering the accelerating nature of the universe in the present epoch, the physical behavior of the model has been discussed. (copyright 2015 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH and Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
Elliptic flow in a hadron-string cascade model at 130 GeV energy
Indian Academy of Sciences (India)
P K Sahu; A Ohnishi; M Isse; N Otuka; S C Phatak
2006-08-01
We present the analysis of elliptic flow at $\\sqrt{s} = 130$ A GeV energy in a hadron-string cascade model. We find that the final hadronic yields are qualitatively described. The elliptic flow 2 is reasonably well-described at low transverse momentum (T < 1 GeV/c) in mid-central collisions. On the other hand, this model does not explain 2 at high T or in peripheral collisions and thus generally, it underestimates the elliptic flow at RHIC energy.
Bianchi Type V magnetized string dust cosmological models with Petrov-type degenerate
Indian Academy of Sciences (India)
Raj Bali; Umesh K Pareek
2009-05-01
Bianchi Type V massive string cosmological models with free gravitational field of Petrov Type degenerate in the presence of magnetic field with variable magnetic permeability are investigated. The magnetic field is due to an electric current produced along the -axis. The 23 is the only non-vanishing component of electromagnetic field tensor . Maxwell's equations [;] = 0 and $F_{ij}^{ij} = 0$ are satisfied by 23 = constant. The behaviour of the model in the presence and absence of magnetic field and other physical aspects are also discussed.
The Completeness Criterion in Atomic Modeling
Liedahl, Duane A.
2000-10-01
I discuss two variations on the completeness theme in atomic modeling; missing lines as they affect the performance of spectral synthesis codes, and missing configurations as they affect the theoretical emissivities of bright lines, with emphasis on the latter. It is shown that the detrimental effects of working with incomplete atomic models can overshadow those brought about by working with less-than-perfect atomic rates. Atomic models can be brought up to an acceptable level of completeness in a fairly straightforward manner, and on a reasonably short timescale, whereas the long-term goal of comprehensive accuracy is unlikely to be reached on the timescale of the current generation of X-ray observatories. A near-term, albeit imperfect, solution is to hybridize atomic models used to synthesize spectra. A hybrid atomic model is one for which a large-scale atomic model, in which completeness is achieved at the expense of accuracy, is augmented with more accurate atomic quantities as they become available.
The 750 GeV diphoton LHC excess and Extra Z's in Heterotic-String Derived Models
Faraggi, Alon E
2016-01-01
The ATLAS and CMS collaborations recently recorded possible di-photon excess at 750 GeV and a less significant di-boson excess around 1.9 TeV. Such excesses may be produced in heterotic-string derived Z' models, where the di-photon excess may be connected with the Standard Model singlet scalar responsible for the Z' symmetry breaking, whereas the di-boson excess arises from production of the extra vector boson. Additional vector-like states in the string Z' model are instrumental to explain the relatively large width of the di-photon events and mandated by anomaly cancellation to be in the vicinity of the Z' breaking scale. Wilson line breaking of the non-Abelian gauge symmetries in the string models naturally gives rise to dark matter candidates. Future collider experiments will discriminate between the high-scale heterotic-string models, which preserve the perturbative unification paradigm indicated by the Standard Model data, versus the low scale string models. We also discuss the possibility for the produ...

We review a study of the semiclassical decay of macroscopic spinning strings in AdS5 x S5 as well as its dual gauge theory description. The conservation of the infinite tower of commuting charges in the semiclassical string sigma-model description of the process suggests that the decay channel of maximal probability should preserve integrability in the gauge theory.
