    We obtain renormalized sets of right and left eigenvectors of the flux vector Jacobians of the relativistic MHD equations, which are regular and span a complete basis in any physical state including degenerate ones. The renormalization procedure relies on the characterization of the degeneracy types in terms of the normal and tangential components of the magnetic field to the wavefront in the fluid rest frame. Proper expressions of the renormalized eigenvectors in conserved variables are obtained through the corresponding matrix transformations. Our work completes previous analysis that present different sets of right eigenvectors for non-degenerate and degenerate states, and can be seen as a relativistic generalization of earlier work performed in classical MHD. Based on the full wave decomposition (FWD) provided by the the renormalized set of eigenvectors in conserved variables, we have also developed a linearized (Roe-type) Riemann solver. Extensive testing against one- and two-dimensional standard numeric...

    In this paper,decomposition of the integrable holomorphic quadratic differential on Riemann surface of infinite type is studied.Hubbard,Schleicher and Shishikura gave a thick-thin decomposition on Riemann surface of finite type with an integrable holomorphic quadratic differential and they thought their result might be generalized to arbitrary hyperbolic Riemann surface of infinite type.We confirm what they thought is right and give a proposition(Proposition 2.2) of its own interest.

  3. Gravitational wave detector response in terms of spacetime Riemann curvature

    CERN Document Server

    Koop, Michael J

    2013-01-01

    Gravitational wave detectors are typically described as responding to gravitational wave metric perturbations, which are gauge-dependent and --- correspondingly --- unphysical quantities. This is particularly true for ground-based interferometric detectors, like LIGO, space-based detectors, like LISA and its derivatives, spacecraft doppler tracking detectors, and pulsar timing arrays detectors. The description of gravitational waves, and a gravitational wave detector's response, to the unphysical metric perturbation has lead to a proliferation of false analogies and descriptions regarding how these detectors function, and true misunderstandings of the physical character of gravitational waves. Here we provide a fully physical and gauge invariant description of the response of a wide class of gravitational wave detectors in terms of the Riemann curvature, the physical quantity that describes gravitational phenomena in general relativity. In the limit of high frequency gravitational waves, the Riemann curvature...

  4. HLL Riemann Solvers and Alfven Waves in Black Hole Magnetospheres

    CERN Document Server

    Punsly, Brian; Kim, Jinho; Garain, Sudip

    2016-01-01

    In the magnetosphere of a rotating black hole, an inner Alfven critical surface (IACS) must be crossed by inflowing plasma. Inside the IACS, Alfven waves are inward directed toward the black hole. The majority of the proper volume of the active region of spacetime (the ergosphere) is inside of the IACS. The charge and the totally transverse momentum flux (the momentum flux transverse to both the wave normal and the unperturbed magnetic field) are both determined exclusively by the Alfven polarization. However, numerical simulations of black hole magnetospheres are often based on 1-D HLL Riemann solvers that readily dissipate Alfven waves. Elements of the dissipated wave emerge in adjacent cells regardless of the IACS, there is no mechanism to prevent Alfvenic information from crossing outward. Thus, it is unclear how simulated magnetospheres attain the substantial Goldreich-Julian charge density associated with the rotating magnetic field. The HLL Riemann solver is also notorious for producing large recurring...

    In the magnetosphere of a rotating black hole, an inner Alfven critical surface (IACS) must be crossed by inflowing plasma. Inside the IACS, Alfven waves are inward directed toward the black hole. The majority of the proper volume of the active region of spacetime (the ergosphere) is inside of the IACS. The charge and the totally transverse momentum flux (the momentum flux transverse to both the wave normal and the unperturbed magnetic field) are both determined exclusively by the Alfven polarization. Thus, it is important for numerical simulations of black hole magnetospheres to minimize the dissipation of Alfven waves. Elements of the dissipated wave emerge in adjacent cells regardless of the IACS, there is no mechanism to prevent Alfvenic information from crossing outward. Thus, numerical dissipation can affect how simulated magnetospheres attain the substantial Goldreich-Julian charge density associated with the rotating magnetic field. In order to help minimize dissipation of Alfven waves in relativistic numerical simulations we have formulated a one-dimensional Riemann solver, called HLLI, which incorporates the Alfven discontinuity and the contact discontinuity. We have also formulated a multidimensional Riemann solver, called MuSIC, that enables low dissipation propagation of Alfven waves in multiple dimensions. The importance of higher order schemes in lowering the numerical dissipation of Alfven waves is also catalogued.

    We report the first observation of Riemann (simple) waves, which play a crucial role for understanding the dynamics of any shock-bearing system. This was achieved by properly tailoring the phase of an ultrashort light pulse injected into a highly nonlinear fiber. Optical Riemann waves are found to evolve in excellent quantitative agreement with the remarkably simple inviscid Burgers equation, whose applicability in physical systems is often challenged by viscous or dissipative effects. Our method allows us to further demonstrate a viable novel route to efficiently control the shock formation by the proper shaping of a laser pulse phase. Our results pave the way towards the experimental study, in a convenient benchtop setup, of complex physical phenomena otherwise difficult to access.

    Jain, Shweta; Bajaj, Varun; Kumar, Anil

    2017-09-18

    Electrocardiograph (ECG) denoising is the most important step in diagnosis of heart related diseases, as the diagnosis gets influenced with noises. In this paper, a new method for ECG denoising is proposed, which incorporates empirical mode decomposition algorithm and Riemann Liouvelle (RL) fractional integral filtering. In the proposed method, noisy ECG signal is decomposed into its intrinsic mode functions (IMFs); from which noisy IMFs are identified by proposed noisy-IMFs identification methodology. RL fractional integral filtering is applied on noisy IMFs to get denoised IMFs; ECG signal is reconstructed with denoised IMFs and remaining signal dominant IMFs to obtain noise-free ECG signal. Proposed methodology is tested with MIT-BIH arrhythmia database. Its performance, in terms of signal to noise ratio (SNR) and mean square error (MSE), is compared with other related fractional integral and EMD based ECG denoising methods. The obtained results by proposed method prove that the proposed method gives efficient noise removal performance.

  10. A five-wave Harten-Lax-van Leer Riemann solver for relativistic magnetohydrodynamics

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mignone, A.; Ugliano, M.; Bodo, G.

    2009-03-01

    We present a five-wave Riemann solver for the equations of ideal relativistic magneto-hydrodynamics. Our solver can be regarded as a relativistic extension of the five-wave HLLD Riemann solver initially developed by Miyoshi & Kusano for the equations of ideal magnetohydrodynamics. The solution to the Riemann problem is approximated by a five-wave pattern, comprising two outermost fast shocks, two rotational discontinuities and a contact surface in the middle. The proposed scheme is considerably more elaborate than in the classical case since the normal velocity is no longer constant across the rotational modes. Still, proper closure to the Rankine-Hugoniot jump conditions can be attained by solving a non-linear scalar equation in the total pressure variable which, for the chosen configuration, has to be constant over the whole Riemann fan. The accuracy of the new Riemann solver is validated against one-dimensional tests and multidimensional applications. It is shown that our new solver considerably improves over the popular Harten-Lax-van Leer solver or the recently proposed HLLC schemes.

    We demonstrate that ships of moderate size, sailing at low depth Froude numbers (0.37–0.5) in a navigation channel surrounded by shallow banks, produce depressions with depths up to 2.5 m. These depressions (Bernoulli wakes) propagate as long-living strongly nonlinear solitary Riemann waves of depression substantial distances into Venice Lagoon. They gradually become strongly asymmetric with the rear of the depression becoming extremely steep, similar to a bore. As they are dynamically similar, air pressure fluctuations moving over variable-depth coastal areas could generate meteorological tsunamis with a leading depression wave followed by a devastating bore-like feature. - Highlights: • Unprecedently deep long-living ship-induced waves of depression detected. • Such waves are generated in channels with side banks under low Froude numbers. • The propagation of these waves is replicated using Riemann waves. • Long-living waves of depression form bore-like features at rear slope.

  12. Fourier spectrum and shape evolution of an internal Riemann wave of moderate amplitude

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    E. Kartashova

    2013-08-01

    Full Text Available The nonlinear deformation of long internal waves in the ocean is studied using the dispersionless Gardner equation. The process of nonlinear wave deformation is determined by the signs of the coefficients of the quadratic and cubic nonlinear terms; the breaking time depends only on their absolute values. The explicit formula for the Fourier spectrum of the deformed Riemann wave is derived and used to investigate the evolution of the spectrum of the initially pure sine wave. It is shown that the spectrum has exponential form for small times and a power asymptotic before breaking. The power asymptotic is universal for arbitrarily chosen coefficients of the nonlinear terms and has a slope close to –8/3.

  13. Universal breaking point asymptotic for energy spectrum of Riemann waves in weakly nonlinear non-dispersive media

    CERN Document Server

    Kartashova, Elena

    2013-01-01

    In this Letter we study the form of the energy spectrum of Riemann waves in weakly nonlinear non-dispersive media. For quadratic and cubic nonlinearity we demonstrate that the deformation of an Riemann wave over time yields an exponential energy spectrum which turns into power law asymptotic with the slope being approximately -8/3 at the last stage of evolution before breaking. We argue, that this is the universal asymptotic behaviour of Riemann waves in any nonlinear non-dispersive medium at the point of breaking. The results reported in this Letter can be used in various non-dispersive media, e.g. magneto-hydro dynamics, physical oceanography, nonlinear acoustics.

    The Duffin-Kemmer form of massless vector field (Maxwell field) is extended to the case of arbitrary pseudo-Riemannian space-time in accordance with the tetrad recipe of Tetrode-Weyl-Fock-Ivanenko. In this approach, the Maxwell equations are solved exactly on the background of simplest static cosmological model, space of constant curvature of Riemann parameterized by spherical coordinates. Separation of variables is realized in the basis of Schr\\"odinger- Pauli type, description of angular dependence in electromagnetic filed functions is given in terms of Wigner D-functions. A discrete frequency spectrum for electromagnetic modes depending on the curvature radius of space and three discrete parameters is found. 4-potentials for spherical electro- magnetic waves of magnetic and electric type have been constructed.

    We consider the covariant Spectator equation with an appropriate OBE kernel, and apply it to the NN system. We develop a method, based on the Pad\\'e method,to solve the Spectator equation without partial wave decomposition, which is essential for high energies. Relativistic effects such as retardation and negative energy state components are considered. The on- and off-mass-shell amplitudes are calculated. The differential cross section obtained agrees fairly well with data at low energies.

    Complex formalism of Riemann - Silberstein - Majorana - Oppenheimer in Maxwell electrodynamics is extended to the case of arbitrary pseudo-Riemannian space - time in accordance with the tetrad recipe of Tetrode - Weyl - Fock - Ivanenko. In this approach, the Maxwell equations are solved exactly on the background of simplest static cosmological models, spaces of constant curvature of Riemann and Lobachevsky parameterized by spherical coordinates. Separation of variables is realized in the basis of Schr\\"odinger -- Pauli type, description of angular dependence in electromagnetic complex 3-vectors is given in terms of Wigner D-functions. In the case of compact Riemann model a discrete frequency spectrum for electromagnetic modes depending on the curvature radius of space and three discrete parameters is found. In the case of hyperbolic Lobachevsky model no discrete spectrum for frequencies of electromagnetic modes arises.

  17. Wave decomposition phenomenon and spectrum evolution over submerged bars

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    LI Benxia; YU Xiping

    2009-01-01

    Wave decomposition phenomenon and spectrum evolution over submerged bars are investigated by a previously developed numerical model. First, the computed free surface displacements of regular waves at various locations are compared with the available experimental data to confirm the validity of the numerical model, and satisfactory agreements are obtained. In addition, variations of decomposition characteristics with incident wave parameters and the change of energy spectrum for regular waves are also studied. Then the spectrum evolution of irregular waves over submerged bars, as well as the influence of incident peak wave period and the steepness of the front slope of the bar on spectrum evolution, is investigated. Wave decomposition and spectral shape are found to be significantly influenced by the incident wave conditions. When the upslope of the bar becomes 1:2, the length of the slope becomes shorter and will not benefit the generation of high frequency energy, so spectrum evolution is not significant.

    2007-01-01

    We study the hyperbolicity in the Gromov sense of Riemann surfaces. We deduce the hyperbolicity of a surface from the hyperbolicity of its "building block components". We also prove the equivalence between the hyperbolicity of a Riemann surface and the hyperbolicity of some graph associated with it. These results clarify how the decomposition of a Riemann surface into Y-pieces and funnels affects the hyperbolicity of the surface. The results simplify the topology of the surface and allow us to obtain global results from local information.

  19. Hybrid Riemann Solvers for Large Systems of Conservation Laws

    CERN Document Server

    Schmidtmann, Birte; Torrilhon, Manuel

    2016-01-01

    In this paper we present a new family of approximate Riemann solvers for the numerical approximation of solutions of hyperbolic conservation laws. They are approximate, also referred to as incomplete, in the sense that the solvers avoid computing the characteristic decomposition of the flux Jacobian. Instead, they require only an estimate of the globally fastest wave speeds in both directions. Thus, this family of solvers is particularly efficient for large systems of conservation laws, i.e. with many different propagation speeds, and when no explicit expression for the eigensystem is available. Even though only fastest wave speeds are needed as input values, the new family of Riemann solvers reproduces all waves with less dissipation than HLL, which has the same prerequisites, requiring only one additional flux evaluation.

  20. Improved beamforming performance using pulsed plane wave decomposition

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Munk, Peter; Jensen, Jørgen Arendt

    2000-01-01

    A tool for calculating the beamformer setup associated with a specified pulsed acoustic field is presented. The method is named Pulsed Plane Wave Decomposition (PPWD) and is based on the decomposition of a pulsed acoustic field into a set of PPWs at a given depth. Each PPW can be propagated...... to the location of the elements of an array transducer by a time delay. The contribution of each propagated PPW is summed to form one time function for each array element (the BMF matrix). This approach gives the beamformer setup needed to obtain a close approximation to the desired bounded pulsed acoustic field...... without involving any optimization scheme. The approximation arises due to the limited size of the acoustic aperture and the spatial sampling property of the array transducer. Thus, the acoustical field can be designed according to the imaging needs. The method is demonstrated by examples in the 2D space...

  1. The Riemann Hypothesis

    OpenAIRE

    2007-01-01

    The Riemann Hypothesis is a conjecture made in 1859 by the great mathematician Riemann that all the complex zeros of the zeta function $\\zeta(s)$ lie on the `critical line' ${Rl} s= 1/2$. Our analysis shows that the assumption of the truth of the Riemann Hypothesis leads to a contradiction. We are therefore led to the conclusion that the Riemann Hypothesis is not true.

  2. Spin-orbit decomposition of ab initio nuclear wave functions

    Science.gov (United States)

    Johnson, Calvin W.

    2015-03-01

    Although the modern shell-model picture of atomic nuclei is built from single-particle orbits with good total angular momentum j , leading to j -j coupling, decades ago phenomenological models suggested that a simpler picture for 0 p -shell nuclides can be realized via coupling of the total spin S and total orbital angular momentum L . I revisit this idea with large-basis, no-core shell-model calculations using modern ab initio two-body interactions and dissect the resulting wave functions into their component L - and S -components. Remarkably, there is broad agreement with calculations using the phenomenological Cohen-Kurath forces, despite a gap of nearly 50 years and six orders of magnitude in basis dimensions. I suggest that L -S decomposition may be a useful tool for analyzing ab initio wave functions of light nuclei, for example, in the case of rotational bands.

    2016-09-01

    This paper is concerned with the construction of a fast algorithm for computing the maximum speed of propagation in the Riemann solution for the Euler system of gas dynamics with the co-volume equation of state. The novelty in the algorithm is that it stops when a guaranteed upper bound for the maximum speed is reached with a prescribed accuracy. The convergence rate of the algorithm is cubic and the bound is guaranteed for gasses with the co-volume equation of state and the heat capacity ratio γ in the range (1 , 5 / 3 ].

  4. Wave Riemann description of friction terms in unsteady shallow flows: Application to water and mud/debris floods

    Science.gov (United States)

    Murillo, J.; García-Navarro, P.

    2012-02-01

    In this work, the source term discretization in hyperbolic conservation laws with source terms is considered using an approximate augmented Riemann solver. The technique is applied to the shallow water equations with bed slope and friction terms with the focus on the friction discretization. The augmented Roe approximate Riemann solver provides a family of weak solutions for the shallow water equations, that are the basis of the upwind treatment of the source term. This has proved successful to explain and to avoid the appearance of instabilities and negative values of the thickness of the water layer in cases of variable bottom topography. Here, this strategy is extended to capture the peculiarities that may arise when defining more ambitious scenarios, that may include relevant stresses in cases of mud/debris flow. The conclusions of this analysis lead to the definition of an accurate and robust first order finite volume scheme, able to handle correctly transient problems considering frictional stresses in both clean water and debris flow, including in this last case a correct modelling of stopping conditions.

  5. Empirical Mode Decomposition of the atmospheric wave field

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    A. J. McDonald

    2007-03-01

    Full Text Available This study examines the utility of the Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD time-series analysis technique to separate the horizontal wind field observed by the Scott Base MF radar (78° S, 167° E into its constituent parts made up of the mean wind, gravity waves, tides, planetary waves and instrumental noise. Analysis suggests that EMD effectively separates the wind field into a set of Intrinsic Mode Functions (IMFs which can be related to atmospheric waves with different temporal scales. The Intrinsic Mode Functions resultant from application of the EMD technique to Monte-Carlo simulations of white- and red-noise processes are compared to those obtained from the measurements and are shown to be significantly different statistically. Thus, application of the EMD technique to the MF radar horizontal wind data can be used to prove that this data contains information on internal gravity waves, tides and planetary wave motions.

    Examination also suggests that the EMD technique has the ability to highlight amplitude and frequency modulations in these signals. Closer examination of one of these regions of amplitude modulation associated with dominant periods close to 12 h is suggested to be related to a wave-wave interaction between the semi-diurnal tide and a planetary wave. Application of the Hilbert transform to the IMFs forms a Hilbert-Huang spectrum which provides a way of viewing the data in a similar manner to the analysis from a continuous wavelet transform. However, the fact that the basis function of EMD is data-driven and does not need to be selected a priori is a major advantage. In addition, the skeleton diagrams, produced from the results of the Hilbert-Huang spectrum, provide a method of presentation which allows quantitative information on the instantaneous period and amplitude squared to be displayed as a function of time. Thus, it provides a novel way to view frequency and amplitude-modulated wave phenomena and potentially non

    Reverberant sound fields are widely studied, as they have a significant influence on the acoustic performance of enclosures in a variety of applications. For example, the intelligibility of speech in lecture rooms, the quality of music in auditoria, the noise level in offices, and the production of 3D sound in living rooms are all affected by the enclosed sound field. These sound fields are typically studied through frequency response measurements or statistical measures such as reverberation time, which do not provide detailed spatial information. The aim of the work presented in this seminar is the detailed analysis of reverberant sound fields. A measurement and analysis system based on acoustic theory and signal processing, designed around a spherical microphone array, is presented. Detailed analysis is achieved by decomposition of the sound field into waves, using spherical Fourier transform and spherical convolution. The presentation will include theoretical review, simulation studies, and initial experimental results.

    We perform a detailed analysis of the properties of the finite-range tensor term associated with the Gogny and M3Y effective interactions. In particular, by using a partial wave decomposition of the equation of state of symmetric nuclear matter, we show how we can extract their tensor parameters directly from microscopic results based on bare nucleon-nucleon interactions. Furthermore, we show that the zero-range limit of both finite-range interactions has the form of the N3LO Skyrme pseudo-potential, which thus constitutes a reliable approximation in the density range relevant for finite nuclei. Finally, we use Brueckner-Hartree-Fock results to fix the tensor parameters for the three effective interactions.

  9. Elastic Wave-equation Reflection Traveltime Inversion Using Dynamic Warping and Wave Mode Decomposition

    KAUST Repository

    Wang, T.

    2017-05-26

    Elastic full waveform inversion (EFWI) provides high-resolution parameter estimation of the subsurface but requires good initial guess of the true model. The traveltime inversion only minimizes traveltime misfits which are more sensitive and linearly related to the low-wavenumber model perturbation. Therefore, building initial P and S wave velocity models for EFWI by using elastic wave-equation reflections traveltime inversion (WERTI) would be effective and robust, especially for the deeper part. In order to distinguish the reflection travletimes of P or S-waves in elastic media, we decompose the surface multicomponent data into vector P- and S-wave seismogram. We utilize the dynamic image warping to extract the reflected P- or S-wave traveltimes. The P-wave velocity are first inverted using P-wave traveltime followed by the S-wave velocity inversion with S-wave traveltime, during which the wave mode decomposition is applied to the gradients calculation. Synthetic example on the Sigbee2A model proves the validity of our method for recovering the long wavelength components of the model.

In the preliminary part we develop and investigate the parameterization of the shock and rarefaction curves in the phase space. Then, we apply them to perform some field-by-field decompositions of the Riemann problem: the entropy-respecting one, the one which supposes that genuinely-non-linear (GNL) waves are both shocks (shock-shock one) and the one which supposes that GNL waves are both rarefactions (rarefaction-rarefaction one). We emphasize that their analysis is fundamental in Riemann solvers developing: the simpler the field-by-field decomposition, the simpler the Riemann solver based on it. As the specific heat capacities of the gases depend on the temperature, the shock-shock field-by-field decomposition is the easiest to perform. Then, in the second part of the thesis, we develop an upwind splitting scheme based on such decomposition. Afterwards, we investigate its robustness, precision and CPU-time consumption, with respect to some of the most popular upwind splitting schemes for polytropic/non-polytropic ideal gases. 1-D test-cases show that this scheme is both precise (exact capturing of stationary shock and stationary contact) and robust in dealing with strong shock and rarefaction waves. Multidimensional test-cases show that it suffers from some of the typical deficiencies which affect the upwind splitting schemes capable of exact capturing stationary contact discontinuities i.e the developing of non-physical instabilities in computing strong shock waves. In the final part, we use the high-order multidimensional solver here developed to compute fully-developed detonation flows. (author)

  15. A Hybrid Riemann Solver for Large Hyperbolic Systems of Conservation Laws

    CERN Document Server

    Schmidtmann, Birte

    2016-01-01

    We are interested in the numerical solution of large systems of hyperbolic conservation laws or systems in which the characteristic decomposition is expensive to compute. Solving such equations using finite volumes or Discontinuous Galerkin requires a numerical flux function which solves local Riemann problems at cell interfaces. There are various methods to express the numerical flux function. On the one end, there is the robust but very diffusive Lax-Friedrichs solver; on the other end the upwind Godunov solver which respects all resulting waves. The drawback of the latter method is the costly computation of the eigensystem. This work presents a family of simple first order Riemann solvers, named HLLX$\\omega$, which avoid solving the eigensystem. The new method reproduces all waves of the system with less dissipation than other solvers with similar input and effort, such as HLL and FORCE. The family of Riemann solvers can be seen as an extension or generalization of the methods introduced by Degond et al. \\...

  18. Seismic waves estimation and wavefield decomposition: application to ambient vibrations

    Passive seismic surveying methods represent a valuable tool in local seismic hazard assessment, oil and gas prospection, and in geotechnical investigations. Array processing techniques are used in order to estimate wavefield properties such as dispersion curves of surface waves and ellipticity of Rayleigh waves. However, techniques presently in use often fail to properly merge information from three-components sensors and do not account for the presence of multiple waves. In this paper, a technique for maximum likelihood estimation of wavefield parameters including direction of propagation, velocity of Love waves and Rayleigh waves, and ellipticity of Rayleigh waves is described. This technique models jointly all the measurements and all the wavefield parameters. Furthermore it is possible to model the simultaneous presence of multiple waves. The performance of this technique is evaluated on a high-fidelity synthetic data set and on real data. It is shown that the joint modelling of all the sensor components, decreases the variance of wavenumber estimates and allows the retrieval of the ellipticity value together with an estimate of the prograde/retrograde motion.

    2014-01-01

    By means of a partial wave decomposition, we separate their contributions to the equation of state of symmetric nuclear matter for the N3LO pseudo-potential. In particular, we show that although both the tensor and the spin-orbit terms do not contribute to the equation of state, they give a non-vanishing contribution to the separate (JLS) channels.

  20. Modal decomposition of a propagating matter wave via electron ptychography

    Cao, S.; Kok, P.; Li, P.; Maiden, A. M.; Rodenburg, J. M.

    2016-12-01

    We employ ptychography, a phase-retrieval imaging technique, to show experimentally that a partially coherent high-energy matter (electron) wave emanating from an extended source can be decomposed into a set of mutually independent modes of minimal rank. Partial coherence significantly determines the optical transfer properties of an electron microscope and so there has been much work on this subject. However, previous studies have employed forms of interferometry to determine spatial coherence between discrete points in the wave field. Here we use the density matrix to derive a formal quantum mechanical description of electron ptychography and use it to measure a full description of the spatial coherence of a propagating matter wave field, at least within the fundamental uncertainties of the measurements we can obtain.

    This paper proposes an approach of the unified consideration of classical and quantum mechanics from the standpoint of the complex analysis effects. It turns out that quantization can be interpreted in terms of the Riemann surface corresponding to the multivalent LnΨ function. A visual interpretation of "trajectories" of the quantum system and of the Feynman's path integral is presented. A magnetic dipole having a magnetic charge that satisfies the Dirac quantization rule was obtained.

  3. Energy decomposition analysis of intermolecular interactions using a block-localized wave function approach

    Mo, Yirong; Gao, Jiali; Peyerimhoff, Sigrid D.

    2000-04-01

    An energy decomposition scheme based on the block-localized wave function (BLW) method is proposed. The key of this scheme is the definition and the full optimization of the diabatic state wave function, where the charge transfer among interacting molecules is deactivated. The present energy decomposition (ED), BLW-ED, method is similar to the Morokuma decomposition scheme in definition of the energy terms, but differs in implementation and the computational algorithm. In addition, in the BLW-ED approach, the basis set superposition error is fully taken into account. The application of this scheme to the water dimer and the lithium cation-water clusters reveals that there is minimal charge transfer effect in hydrogen-bonded complexes. At the HF/aug-cc-PVTZ level, the electrostatic, polarization, and charge-transfer effects contribute 65%, 24%, and 11%, respectively, to the total bonding energy (-3.84 kcal/mol) in the water dimer. On the other hand, charge transfer effects are shown to be significant in Lewis acid-base complexes such as H3NSO3 and H3NBH3. In this work, the effect of basis sets used on the energy decomposition analysis is addressed and the results manifest that the present energy decomposition scheme is stable with a modest size of basis functions.

    The Riemann problem for zero-pressure flow in gas dynamics in one dimension and two dimensions is investigated. Through studying the generalized Rankine-Hugoniot conditions of delta-shock waves, the one-dimensional Riemann solution is proposed which exhibits four different structures when the initial density involves Dirac measure. For the two-dimensional case, the Riemann solution with two pieces of initial constant states separated at a smooth curve is obtained.

    2013-01-01

    In this study, we discuss the performance of the parallel ensemble empirical mode decomposition (EMD) in the analysis of tropical waves that are associated with tropical cyclone (TC) formation. To efficiently analyze high-resolution, global, multiple-dimensional data sets, we first implement multilevel parallelism into the ensemble EMD (EEMD) and obtain a parallel speedup of 720 using 200 eight-core processors. We then apply the parallel EEMD (PEEMD) to extract the intrinsic mode functions (IMFs) from preselected data sets that represent (1) idealized tropical waves and (2) large-scale environmental flows associated with Hurricane Sandy (2012). Results indicate that the PEEMD is efficient and effective in revealing the major wave characteristics of the data, such as wavelengths and periods, by sifting out the dominant (wave) components. This approach has a potential for hurricane climate study by examining the statistical relationship between tropical waves and TC formation.

  8. Solving Potential Scattering Equations without Partial Wave Decomposition

    Caia, George; Pascalutsa, Vladimir; Wright, Louis E

    2004-03-01

    Considering two-body integral equations we show how they can be dimensionally reduced by integrating exactly over the azimuthal angle of the intermediate momentum. Numerical solution of the resulting equation is feasible without employing a partial-wave expansion. We illustrate this procedure for the Bethe-Salpeter equation for pion-nucleon scattering and give explicit details for the one-nucleon-exchange term in the potential. Finally, we show how this method can be applied to pion photoproduction from the nucleon with {pi}N rescattering being treated so as to maintain unitarity to first order in the electromagnetic coupling. The procedure for removing the azimuthal angle dependence becomes increasingly complex as the spin of the particles involved increases.

    2016-04-01

    Hearing impaired people have their own hearing loss characteristics and listening preferences. Therefore hearing aid system should become more natural, humanized and personalized, which requires the filterbank in hearing aids provides flexible sound wave decomposition schemes, so that patients are likely to use the most suitable scheme for their own hearing compensation strategy. In this paper, a reconfigurable sound wave decomposition filterbank is proposed. The prototype filter is first cosine modulated to generate uniform subbands. Then by non-linear transformation the uniform subbands are mapped to nonuniform subbands. By changing the control parameters, the nonlinear transformation changes which leads to different subbands allocations. It provides four different sound wave decomposition schemes without changing the structure of the filterbank. The performance of the proposed reconfigurable filterbank was compared with that of fixed filerbanks, fully customizable filterbanks and other existing reconfigurable filterbanks. It is shown that the proposed filterbank provides satisfactory matching performance as well as low complexity and delay, which make it suitable for real hearing aid applications.

    We present a global solution to a Riemann problem for the pressure gradient system of equations.The Riemann problem has initially two shock waves and two contact discontinuities. The angle between the two shock waves is set initially to be close to 180 degrees. The solution has a shock wave that is usually regarded as a free boundary in the self-similar variable plane. Our main contribution in methodology is handling the tangential oblique derivative boundary values.

  13. Partial-Wave Series Expansion and Angular Spectrum Decomposition Formalisms for Acoustical Beams

    CERN Document Server

    Mitri, F G

    2014-01-01

    Complex weights factors (CWFs) that fully define the incident beam independent of the presence of a scatterer, may be represented mathematically by either a partial-wave series expansion (PWSE) of multipoles, or the method of angular spectrum decomposition (ASD) of plane waves. Once the mathematical expression for the CWFs of the incident waves is known, evaluation of the arbitrary scattering, radiation force, and torque components on an object in 3D, using the Generalized Theories of Resonance Scattering (GTRS), Radiation Force (GTRF) and Radiation Torque (GTRT), becomes feasible. The aim of this Letter is to establish the connection between these two approaches in the framework of the GTRS, GTRF and GTRT in spherical coordinates for various acoustical applications. The advantage of using the ASD approach is also discussed for specific beams with particular properties.

    This volume offers a well-structured overview of existent computational approaches to Riemann surfaces and those currently in development. The authors of the contributions represent the groups providing publically available numerical codes in this field. Thus this volume illustrates which software tools are available and how they can be used in practice. In addition examples for solutions to partial differential equations and in surface theory are presented. The intended audience of this book is twofold. It can be used as a textbook for a graduate course in numerics of Riemann surfaces, in which case the standard undergraduate background, i.e., calculus and linear algebra, is required. In particular, no knowledge of the theory of Riemann surfaces is expected; the necessary background in this theory is contained in the Introduction chapter. At the same time, this book is also intended for specialists in geometry and mathematical physics applying the theory of Riemann surfaces in their research. It is the first...

  16. PARAFAC Decomposition for Ultrasonic Wave Sensing of Fiber Bragg Grating Sensors: Procedure and Evaluation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available Ultrasonic wave-sensing technology has been applied for the health monitoring of composite structures, using normal fiber Bragg grating (FBG sensors with a high-speed wavelength interrogation system of arrayed waveguide grating (AWG filters; however, researchers are required to average thousands of repeated measurements to distinguish significant signals. To resolve this bottleneck problem, this study established a signal-processing strategy that improves the signal-to-noise ratio for the one-time measured signal of ultrasonic waves, by application of parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC technology that produces unique multiway decomposition without additional orthogonal or independent constraints. Through bandpass processing of the AWG filter and complex wavelet transforms, ultrasonic wave signals are preprocessed as time, phase, and frequency profiles, and then decomposed into a series of conceptual three-way atoms by PARAFAC. While an ultrasonic wave results in a Bragg wavelength shift, antiphase fluctuations can be observed at two adjacent AWG ports. Thereby, concentrating on antiphase features among the three-way atoms, a fitting atom can be chosen and then restored to three-way profiles as a final result. An experimental study has revealed that the final result is consistent with the conventional 1024-data averaging signal, and relative error evaluation has indicated that the signal-to-noise ratio of ultrasonic waves can be significantly improved.

  17. ON A CLASS OF RIEMANN SURFACES

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2006-01-01

    It is considered the class of Riemann surfaces with dimT1 = 0, where T1 is a subclass of exact harmonic forms which is one of the factors in the orthogonal decomposition of the space ΩH of harmonic forms of the surface, namelyΩH = *Ω0H +T1 + *T0H + T0H + T2.The surfaces in the class OHD and the class of planar surfaces satisfy dimT1 = 0. A.Pfluger posed the question whether there might exist other surfaces outside those two classes. Here it is shown that in the case of finite genus g, we should look for a surface S with dimT1 = 0 among the surfaces of the form Sg\\K , where Sg is a closed surface of genus g and K a compact set of positive harmonic measure with perfect components and very irregular boundary.

  18. ``Riemann equations'' in bidifferential calculus

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chvartatskyi, O.; Müller-Hoissen, F.; Stoilov, N.

    2015-10-01

    We consider equations that formally resemble a matrix Riemann (or Hopf) equation in the framework of bidifferential calculus. With different choices of a first-order bidifferential calculus, we obtain a variety of equations, including a semi-discrete and a fully discrete version of the matrix Riemann equation. A corresponding universal solution-generating method then either yields a (continuous or discrete) Cole-Hopf transformation, or leaves us with the problem of solving Riemann equations (hence an application of the hodograph method). If the bidifferential calculus extends to second order, solutions of a system of "Riemann equations" are also solutions of an equation that arises, on the universal level of bidifferential calculus, as an integrability condition. Depending on the choice of bidifferential calculus, the latter can represent a number of prominent integrable equations, like self-dual Yang-Mills, as well as matrix versions of the two-dimensional Toda lattice, Hirota's bilinear difference equation, (2+1)-dimensional Nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS), Kadomtsev-Petviashvili (KP) equation, and Davey-Stewartson equations. For all of them, a recent (non-isospectral) binary Darboux transformation result in bidifferential calculus applies, which can be specialized to generate solutions of the associated "Riemann equations." For the latter, we clarify the relation between these specialized binary Darboux transformations and the aforementioned solution-generating method. From (arbitrary size) matrix versions of the "Riemann equations" associated with an integrable equation, possessing a bidifferential calculus formulation, multi-soliton-type solutions of the latter can be generated. This includes "breaking" multi-soliton-type solutions of the self-dual Yang-Mills and the (2+1)-dimensional NLS equation, which are parametrized by solutions of Riemann equations.

  1. Riemann curvature of a boosted spacetime geometry

    Battista, Emmanuele; Esposito, Giampiero; Scudellaro, Paolo; Tramontano, Francesco

    2016-10-01

    The ultrarelativistic boosting procedure had been applied in the literature to map the metric of Schwarzschild-de Sitter spacetime into a metric describing de Sitter spacetime plus a shock-wave singularity located on a null hypersurface. This paper evaluates the Riemann curvature tensor of the boosted Schwarzschild-de Sitter metric by means of numerical calculations, which make it possible to reach the ultrarelativistic regime gradually by letting the boost velocity approach the speed of light. Thus, for the first time in the literature, the singular limit of curvature, through Dirac’s δ distribution and its derivatives, is numerically evaluated for this class of spacetimes. Moreover, the analysis of the Kretschmann invariant and the geodesic equation shows that the spacetime possesses a “scalar curvature singularity” within a 3-sphere and it is possible to define what we here call “boosted horizon”, a sort of elastic wall where all particles are surprisingly pushed away, as numerical analysis demonstrates. This seems to suggest that such “boosted geometries” are ruled by a sort of “antigravity effect” since all geodesics seem to refuse to enter the “boosted horizon” and are “reflected” by it, even though their initial conditions are aimed at driving the particles toward the “boosted horizon” itself. Eventually, the equivalence with the coordinate shift method is invoked in order to demonstrate that all δ2 terms appearing in the Riemann curvature tensor give vanishing contribution in distributional sense.

    Full Text Available The global solutions of the perturbed Riemann problem for the Leroux system are constructed explicitly under the suitable assumptions when the initial data are taken to be three piecewise constant states. The wave interaction problems are widely investigated during the process of constructing global solutions with the help of the geometrical structures of the shock and rarefaction curves in the phase plane. In addition, it is shown that the Riemann solutions are stable with respect to the specific small perturbations of the Riemann initial data.

  3. Probing disturbances over canadian ionosphere using advance data analysis of wave decomposition

    Using CHAIN network of GPS receivers, we present disturbances in total electron content (TEC) of the ionosphere on magnetically quiet day of 8 December 2009 and construct travel-time diagram to understand the propagation characteristics of these disturbances. We employ the wave decomposition method to identify the TEC disturbances. We found N-shaped amplified TEC disturbances at higher latitude around 80 N that appear during intensification of ionospheric current at ˜11 UT, suggesting them to be associated with energy input from magnetosphere. These TEC disturbances have spectral peak in between 55-65 minutes, originate in the vicnity of (80N,270W), propagate both southeastward and southwestward with similar velocity ˜80 m/s and arrives at latitude ˜55N around 20 UT. These propagation characteristcs classify them as medium-scale Traveling ionospheric disturbances (MSTIDs) and possibly of gravity wave origin. Noteworthy results of our study are following: (1) presence of dayside MSTIDs whose nightside counterpart is recently reported by Shiokawa et al (2012), (2) long-distance ˜2500 km propagation of dayside MSTIDs that is not reported for the nightside counterpart, (3) dayside MSIDs acquire largest amplitudes in 65-75 during 15-17 UT, similar to the nightside MSTIDs, (4) amplification of amplitudes of MSTIDs in the auroral oval latitudes and (5) identification of driving sources in two latitudes that enable them to propagate long distance.

    2016-08-01

    An experimental methodology is proposed to assess the noise emission of centrifugal turbocompressors like those of automotive turbochargers. A step-by-step procedure is detailed, starting from the theoretical considerations of sound measurement in flow ducts and examining specific experimental setup guidelines and signal processing routines. Special care is taken regarding some limiting factors that adversely affect the measuring of sound intensity in ducts, namely calibration, sensor placement and frequency ranges and restrictions. In order to provide illustrative examples of the proposed techniques and results, the methodology has been applied to the acoustic evaluation of a small automotive turbocharger in a flow bench. Samples of raw pressure spectra, decomposed pressure waves, calibration results, accurate surge characterization and final compressor noise maps and estimated spectrograms are provided. The analysis of selected frequency bands successfully shows how different, known noise phenomena of particular interest such as mid-frequency "whoosh noise" and low-frequency surge onset are correlated with operating conditions of the turbocharger. Comparison against external inlet orifice intensity measurements shows good correlation and improvement with respect to alternative wave decomposition techniques.

  5. The Riemann zeros as spectrum and the Riemann hypothesis

    2016-01-01

    We review a series of works whose aim is to provide a spectral realization of the Riemann zeros and that culminate in a physicist's proof of the Riemann hypothesis. These results are obtained analyzing the spectrum of the Hamiltonian of a massless Dirac fermion in a region of Rindler spacetime that contains moving mirrors whose accelerations are related to the prime numbers. We show that a zero on the critical line becomes an eigenvalue of the Hamiltonian in the limit where the mirrors become transparent, and the self-adjoint extension of the Hamiltonian is adjusted accordingly with the phase of the zeta function. We have also considered the spectral realization of zeros off the critical line using a non self-adjoint operator, but its properties imply that those zeros do not exist. In the derivation of these results we made several assumptions that need to be established more rigorously.

  8. A quantum mechanical model of the Riemann zeros

    CERN Document Server

    Sierra, German

    2007-01-01

    In 1999 Berry and Keating showed that a regularization of the 1D classical Hamiltonian H = xp gives semiclassically the smooth counting function of the Riemann zeros. In this paper we first generalize this result by considering a phase space delimited by two boundary functions in position and momenta, which induce a fluctuation term in the counting of energy levels. We next quantize the xp Hamiltonian, adding an interaction term that depends on two wave functions associated to the classical boundaries in phase space. The general model is solved exactly, obtaining a continuum spectrum with discrete bound states embbeded in it. We find the boundary wave functions, associated to the Berry-Keating regularization, for which the average Riemann zeros become resonances. A spectral realization of the Riemann zeros is achieved exploiting the symmetry of the model under the exchange of position and momenta which is related to the duality symmetry of the zeta function. The boundary wave functions, giving rise to the Rie...

  9. Riemann equation for prime number diffusion.

    2015-05-01

    This study makes the first attempt to propose the Riemann diffusion equation to describe in a manner of partial differential equation and interpret in physics of diffusion the classical Riemann method for prime number distribution. The analytical solution of this equation is the well-known Riemann representation. The diffusion coefficient is dependent on natural number, a kind of position-dependent diffusivity diffusion. We find that the diffusion coefficient of the Riemann diffusion equation is nearly a straight line having a slope 0.99734 in the double-logarithmic axis. Consequently, an approximate solution of the Riemann diffusion equation is obtained, which agrees well with the Riemann representation in predicting the prime number distribution. Moreover, we interpret the scale-free property of prime number distribution via a power law function with 1.0169 the scale-free exponent in respect to logarithmic transform of the natural number, and then the fractal characteristic of prime number distribution is disclosed.

    An equivalent formulation of the Riemann hypothesis is given. The formulation is generalized. The physical interpretation of the Riemann hypothesis generalized formulation is given in the framework of quantum theory terminology. An axiom is laid down on the ground of the interpretation taking into account the observed properties of the surrounding reality. The Riemann hypothesis is true according to the axiom. It is shown that it is unprovable.

  12. Kinetics of the thermal decomposition of tetramethylsilane behind the reflected shock waves between 1058 and 1194 K

    2016-04-01

    Thermal decomposition of tetramethylsilane (TMS) diluted in argon was studied behind the reflected shock waves in a single pulse shock tube (SPST) in the temperature range of 1058–1194 K. The major products formed in the decomposition are methane (CH4) and ethylene (C2H4); whereas ethane and propylene were detected in lower concentrations. The decomposition of TMS seems to be initiated via Si-C bond cission by forming methyl radicals (CH3) and trimethylsilyl radicals ((CH3)3Si). The total rate coefficients obtained for the decomposition of TMS were fit to Arrhenius equation in two different temperature regions 1058–1130K and 1130–1194 K. The temperature dependent rate coefficients obtained are ktotal (1058–1130 K) = (4.61 ± 0.70) × 1018 exp (−(79.9 kcal mol−1 ± 3.5)/RT) −1, ktotal (1130-1194 K) = (1.33 ± 0.19) × 106 exp (−(15.3 kcal mol−1 ± 3.5)/RT) −1. The rate coefficient for the formation of CH4 is obtained to be methane (1058–1194 K) = (4.36 ± 1.23) × 1014 exp (−(61.9 kcal mol−1±4.9)/RT) s−1. A kinetic scheme containing 21 species and 38 elementary reactions was proposed and simulations were carried out to explain the formation of all the products in the decomposition of tetramethylsilane.

  13. Ultra-High-Speed Travelling Wave Protection of Transmission Line Using Polarity Comparison Principle Based on Empirical Mode Decomposition

    Full Text Available The traditional polarity comparison based travelling wave protection, using the initial wave information, is affected by initial fault angle, bus structure, and external fault. And the relationship between the magnitude and polarity of travelling wave is ignored. Because of the protection tripping and malfunction, the further application of this protection principle is affected. Therefore, this paper presents an ultra-high-speed travelling wave protection using integral based polarity comparison principle. After empirical mode decomposition of the original travelling wave, the first-order intrinsic mode function is used as protection object. Based on the relationship between the magnitude and polarity of travelling wave, this paper demonstrates the feasibility of using travelling wave magnitude which contains polar information as direction criterion. And the paper integrates the direction criterion in a period after fault to avoid wave head detection failure. Through PSCAD simulation with the typical 500 kV transmission system, the reliability and sensitivity of travelling wave protection were verified under different factors’ affection.

    A new method for signal decomposition is proposed and tested. Based on self-consistent nonlinear wave equations with self-sustaining physical mechanisms in mind, the new method is adaptive and particularly effective for dealing with synthetic signals consisting of components of multiple time scales. By formulating the method into an optimization problem and developing the corresponding algorithm and tool, we have proved its usefulness not only for analyzing simulated signals, but, more importantly, also for real clinical data.

  15. A robust HLLC-type Riemann solver for strong shock

    Science.gov (United States)

    Shen, Zhijun; Yan, Wei; Yuan, Guangwei

    2016-03-01

    It is well known that for the Eulerian equations the numerical schemes that can accurately capture contact discontinuity usually suffer from some disastrous carbuncle phenomenon, while some more dissipative schemes, such as the HLL scheme, are free from this kind of shock instability. Hybrid schemes to combine a dissipative flux with a less dissipative flux can cure the shock instability, but also may lead to other problems, such as certain arbitrariness of choosing switching parameters or contact interface becoming smeared. In order to overcome these drawbacks, this paper proposes a simple and robust HLLC-type Riemann solver for inviscid, compressible gas flows, which is capable of preserving sharp contact surface and is free from instability. The main work is to construct a HLL-type Riemann solver and a HLLC-type Riemann solver by modifying the shear viscosity of the original HLL and HLLC methods. Both of the two new schemes are positively conservative under some typical wavespeed estimations. Moreover, a linear matrix stability analysis for the proposed schemes is accomplished, which illustrates the HLLC-type solver with shear viscosity is stable whereas the HLL-type solver with vorticity wave is unstable. Our arguments and numerical experiments demonstrate that the inadequate dissipation associated to the shear wave may be a unique reason to cause the instability.

We also discuss how the integral criterion based on the argument of the Riemann zeta function relates to the Li criterion for the Riemann hypothesis. We provide a new generalization of this integral criterion. Finally, we comment on the physical interpretation of our recasting of the Riemann hypothesis in terms of the Veneziano amplitude.

These tessellations are generalizations of brane tilings, or bipartite graphs on the torus as well as the Platonic and Archimedean solids on the sphere. On higher genus they give rise to intricate patterns. Special attention will be paid to the master space and the moduli space of vacua of the gauge theory and to how their geometry is determined by the tessellations.

    We use the conservation law of the stress-energy and spin tensors to study the motion of massive zero-size objects in Riemann-Cartan geometry. The resultant world line equations turn out to exhibit a novel spin-curvature coupling. In particular, the spin of the Dirac particle does not couple to the background curvature. This is a consequence of its truly zero size which consistently rules out the orbital degrees of freedom. As a test of consistency, the wave packet solution of the free Dirac equation is considered. It is shown that the wave packet spin and orbital angular momentum disappear simultaneously in the zero-size limit.

  4. Full wavefield decomposition of high-frequency secondary microseisms reveals distinct arrival azimuths for Rayleigh and Love waves

    In the secondary microseism band (0.1-1.0 Hz) the theoretical excitation of Rayleigh waves (Rg/LR), through oceanic wave-wave interaction, is well understood. For Love waves (LQ), the excitation mechanism in the secondary microseism band is less clear. We explore high-frequency secondary microseism excitation between 0.35 and 1 Hz by analyzing a full year (2013) of records from a three-component seismic array in Pilbara (PSAR), Australia. Our recently developed three-component waveform decomposition algorithm (CLEAN-3C) fully decomposes the beam power in slowness space into multiple point sources. This method allows for a directionally dependent power estimation for all separable wave phases. In this contribution, we compare quantitatively microseismic energy recorded on vertical and transverse components. We find the mean power representation of Rayleigh and Love waves to have differing azimuthal distributions, which are likely a result of their respective generation mechanisms. Rayleigh waves show correlation with convex coastlines, while Love waves correlate with seafloor sedimentary basins. The observations are compared to the WAVEWATCH III ocean model, implemented at the Institut Français de Recherche pour l'Exploitation de la Mer (IFREMER), which describes the spatial and temporal characteristics of microseismic source excitation. We find Love wave energy to originate from raypaths coinciding with seafloor sedimentary basins where strong Rayleigh wave excitation is predicted by the ocean model. The total power of Rg waves is found to dominate at 0.35-0.6 Hz, and the Rayleigh/Love wave power ratio strongly varies with direction and frequency.

    The Riemann zeta function is one of important functions in mathematics and appears in the quantum theory of the field, the Casimir effect, the super string theory, chaos and others in physics. The Riemann hypothesis is a hypothesis predicted by Riemann in 1859 that the every real part of the intrinsic zero point of the Riemann zeta function is 1/2 and is considered to be the most difficult problem in the modern mathematics. Efforts to solve this problem brought about developments of many fields in mathematics. This paper describes the Riemann hypothesis, related hypothesis by Hilbert and Polya, analogous matter of the Riemann hypothesis and the attempt of Haas. The clue of the solution of the Riemann hypothesis might exist in the way to understand the quantum spaces and further interaction between physics and mathematics is expected. 16 refs.

For centro-symmetric crystals however, a connection arises as the result of a statistical approach to the inverse phase problem. It is shown that parameters of the phase distribution are related to the non-trivial Riemann zeros by a Mellin transform.

    In their 1995 paper, Jean-Benoît Bost and Alain Connes (BC) constructed a quantum dynamical system whose partition function is the Riemann zeta function ζ(β), where β is an inverse temperature. We formulate Riemann hypothesis (RH) as a property of the low-temperature Kubo-Martin-Schwinger (KMS) states of this theory. More precisely, the expectation value of the BC phase operator can be written as \\phi _{\\beta }(q)=N_{q-1}^{\\beta -1} \\psi _{\\beta -1}(N_q), where Nq = ∏qk = 1pk is the primorial number of order q and ψb is a generalized Dedekind ψ function depending on one real parameter b as \\psi _b (q)=q \\prod _{p \\in {P,}p \\vert q}\\frac{1-1/p^b}{1-1/p}. Fix a large inverse temperature β > 2. The RH is then shown to be equivalent to the inequality N_q |\\phi _\\beta (N_q)|\\zeta (\\beta -1) \\gt e^\\gamma log log N_q, for q large enough. Under RH, extra formulas for high-temperature KMS states (1.5 < β < 2) are derived. 'Number theory is not pure Mathematics. It is the Physics of the world of Numbers.' Alf van der Poorten

  11. A fast-multipole domain decomposition integral equation solver for characterizing electromagnetic wave propagation in mine environments

    KAUST Repository

    Yücel, Abdulkadir C.

    2013-07-01

    Reliable and effective wireless communication and tracking systems in mine environments are key to ensure miners\\' productivity and safety during routine operations and catastrophic events. The design of such systems greatly benefits from simulation tools capable of analyzing electromagnetic (EM) wave propagation in long mine tunnels and large mine galleries. Existing simulation tools for analyzing EM wave propagation in such environments employ modal decompositions (Emslie et. al., IEEE Trans. Antennas Propag., 23, 192-205, 1975), ray-tracing techniques (Zhang, IEEE Tran. Vehic. Tech., 5, 1308-1314, 2003), and full wave methods. Modal approaches and ray-tracing techniques cannot accurately account for the presence of miners and their equipments, as well as wall roughness (especially when the latter is comparable to the wavelength). Full-wave methods do not suffer from such restrictions but require prohibitively large computational resources. To partially alleviate this computational burden, a 2D integral equation-based domain decomposition technique has recently been proposed (Bakir et. al., in Proc. IEEE Int. Symp. APS, 1-2, 8-14 July 2012). © 2013 IEEE.

    2008-09-12

    The number N(E) of complex zeros of the Riemann zeta function with positive imaginary part less than E is the sum of a "smooth" function N[over ](E) and a "fluctuation." Berry and Keating have shown that the asymptotic expansion of N[over ](E) counts states of positive energy less than E in a "regularized" semiclassical model with classical Hamiltonian H=xp. For a different regularization, Connes has shown that it counts states "missing" from a continuum. Here we show how the "absorption spectrum" model of Connes emerges as the lowest Landau level limit of a specific quantum-mechanical model for a charged particle on a planar surface in an electric potential and uniform magnetic field. We suggest a role for the higher Landau levels in the fluctuation part of N(E).

    In this paper, we consider the Riemann problem for a five-equation, two-pressure (5E2P) model proposed by Ransom and Hicks for an isentropic compressible gas–liquid two-phase flows. The model is given by a strictly hyperbolic, non-conservative system of five partial differential equations (PDEs). We investigate the structure of the Riemann problem and construct an approximate solution for it. We solve the Riemann problemfor this model approximately assuming that all waves corresponding to the genuinely nonlinear characteristic fields are rarefaction and discuss their properties. To verify the solver, a series of test problems selected from the literature are presented.

The first part of the book presents basic material, guiding the reader through the current field of research. A key point of the second part is the interplay between the automorphism groups of dessins and their Riemann surfaces, and the action of the absolute Galois group on dessins and their algebraic curves. It concludes by showing the links between the theory of dessins and other areas of arithmetic and geometry, such as the abc conjecture, complex multiplication and Beauville surfaces.

  4. Spatial characterization of vortical structures and internal waves in a stratified turbulent wake using proper orthogonal decomposition

    Diamessis, Peter J.; Gurka, Roi; Liberzon, Alex

    2010-08-01

    Proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) has been applied to two-dimensional transects of vorticity obtained from numerical simulations of the stratified turbulent wake of a towed sphere at a Reynolds number Re=(UD)/ν =5×103 and Froude number Fr=2U/(ND)=4 (U and D are characteristic velocity and length scales and N is the stratification frequency). At 231 times during the interval 12decomposition of the vorticity field inside the wake core in terms of the relative influence of buoyancy on flow dynamics. The geometry of the individual eigenmodes shows a vorticity structure that is buoyancy-controlled at the lowest modes and is increasingly more actively turbulent as modal index is increased. In the wake ambient, i.e., the initially quiescent region outside the turbulent wake, the geometry of the POD modes consists of distinct internal wave rays whose angle to the horizontal is strongly dependent on modal index. Reconstruction of vorticity fields from subranges of POD modes indicates that, both inside the wake core but also in the wave-dominated ambient, each modal subrange is not only associated with a particular flow structure but also a characteristic timescale of motion. These preliminary findings suggest that POD may be a highly suitable alternative to globally defined basis functions in analyzing spatially localized internal wave fields emitted from a turbulent source that are also localized in space. In particular, it may serve as a platform toward an improved understanding of two fundamental questions associated with the nonequilibrium regime of stratified wake evolution: the structural transitions of the vorticity field within the wake core and the radiation of internal waves by the wake.

    We present here several novel features of our recently proposed Jastrow linear generalized valence bond (J-LGVB) wave functions, which allow a consistently accurate description of complex potential energy surfaces (PES) of medium-large systems within quantum Monte Carlo (QMC). In particular, we develop a multilevel scheme to treat different regions of the molecule at different levels of the theory. As prototypical study case, we investigate the decomposition of α-hydroxy-dimethylnitrosamine, a carcinogenic metabolite of dimethylnitrosamine (NDMA), through a two-step mechanism of isomerization followed by a retro-ene reaction. We compute a reliable reaction path with the quadratic configuration interaction method and employ QMC for the calculation of the electronic energies. We show that the use of multideterminantal wave functions is very important to correctly describe the critical points of this PES within QMC, and that our multilevel J-LGVB approach is an effective tool to significantly reduce the cost of QMC calculations without loss of accuracy. As regards the complex PES of α-hydroxy-dimethylnitrosamine, the accurate energies computed with our approach allows us to confirm the validity of the two-step reaction mechanism of decomposition originally proposed within density functional theory, but with some important differences in the barrier heights of the individual steps.

By means of the generalized Rankine-Hugoniot relation and the generalized characteristic analysis method, the global solution involving delta shock wave and vacuum is constructed. The explicit solution for a special case is also given.

    An approach based on Newton’s method is proposed for solving the Riemann problem for media with normal equations of state. The Riemann integrals are evaluated using a cubic approximation of an isentropic curve that is superior to the Simpson method in terms of accuracy, convergence rate, and efficiency. The potentials of the approach are demonstrated by solving problems for media obeying the Mie-Grüneisen equation of state. The algebraic equation of the isentropic curve and some exact solutions for configurations with rarefaction waves are explicitly given.

  8. Approximate Harten-Lax-van Leer Riemann solvers for relativistic magnetohydrodynamics

    2012-11-01

    We review a particular class of approximate Riemann solvers in the context of the equations of ideal relativistic magnetohydrodynamics. Commonly prefixed as Harten-Lax-van Leer (HLL), this family of solvers approaches the solution of the Riemann problem by providing suitable guesses to the outermots characteristic speeds, without any prior knowledge of the solution. By requiring consistency with the integral form of the conservation law, a simplified set of jump conditions with a reduced number of characteristic waves may be obtained. The degree of approximation crucially depends on the wave pattern used in prepresnting the Riemann fan arising from the initial discontinuity breakup. In the original HLL scheme, the solution is approximated by collapsing the full characteristic structure into a single average state enclosed by two outermost fast mangnetosonic speeds. On the other hand, HLLC and HLLD improves the accuracy of the solution by restoring the tangential and Alfvén modes therefore leading to a representation of the Riemann fan in terms of 3 and 5 waves, respectively.

    A non-overlapping domain decomposition iterative method is proposed and analyzed for mixed finite element methods for a sequence of noncoercive elliptic systems with radiation boundary conditions. These differential systems describe the motion of a nearly elastic solid in the frequency domain. The convergence of the iterative procedure is demonstrated and the rate of convergence is derived for the case when the domain is decomposed into subdomains in which each subdomain consists of an individual element associated with the mixed finite elements. The hybridization of mixed finite element methods plays a important role in the construction of the discrete procedure.

    Full Text Available The application of a 3D domain decomposition finite-element and spherical mode expansion for the design of planar ESPAR (electronically steerable passive array radiator made with probe-fed circular microstrip patches is presented in this work. A global generalized scattering matrix (GSM in terms of spherical modes is obtained analytically from the GSM of the isolated patches by using rotation and translation properties of spherical waves. The whole behaviour of the array is characterized including all the mutual coupling effects between its elements. This procedure has been firstly validated by analyzing an array of monopoles on a ground plane, and then it has been applied to synthesize a prescribed radiation pattern optimizing the reactive loads connected to the feeding ports of the array of circular patches by means of a genetic algorithm.

  11. Universal moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces

    Ji, Lizhen; Jost, Jürgen

    2017-04-01

    We construct a moduli space for Riemann surfaces that is universal in the sense that it represents compact Riemann surfaces of any finite genus. This moduli space is a connected complex subspace of an infinite dimensional complex space, and is stratified according to genus such that each stratum has a compact closure, and it carries a metric and a measure that induce a Riemannian metric and a finite volume measure on each stratum. Applications to the Plateau-Douglas problem for minimal surfaces of varying genus and to the partition function of Bosonic string theory are outlined. The construction starts with a universal moduli space of Abelian varieties. This space carries a structure of an infinite dimensional locally symmetric space which is of interest in its own right. The key to our construction of the universal moduli space then is the Torelli map that assigns to every Riemann surface its Jacobian and its extension to the Satake-Baily-Borel compactifications.

  12. Riemann zeros, prime numbers, and fractal potentials.

    2003-06-01

    Using two distinct inversion techniques, the local one-dimensional potentials for the Riemann zeros and prime number sequence are reconstructed. We establish that both inversion techniques, when applied to the same set of levels, lead to the same fractal potential. This provides numerical evidence that the potential obtained by inversion of a set of energy levels is unique in one dimension. We also investigate the fractal properties of the reconstructed potentials and estimate the fractal dimensions to be D=1.5 for the Riemann zeros and D=1.8 for the prime numbers. This result is somewhat surprising since the nearest-neighbor spacings of the Riemann zeros are known to be chaotically distributed, whereas the primes obey almost Poissonlike statistics. Our findings show that the fractal dimension is dependent on both level statistics and spectral rigidity, Delta(3), of the energy levels.

    A comparison of escape rates from one and from two holes in an experimental container (e.g., a laser trap) can be used to obtain information about the dynamics inside the container. If this dynamics is simple enough one can hope to obtain exact formulas. Here we obtain exact formulas for escape from a circular billiard with one and with two holes. The corresponding quantities are expressed as sums over zeros of the Riemann zeta function. Thus we demonstrate a direct connection between recent experiments and a major unsolved problem in mathematics, the Riemann hypothesis.

    2013-04-01

    Plane-wave decomposition (PWD) methods using microphone arrays have been shown to be a very useful tool within the applied acoustics community for their multiple applications in room acoustics analysis and synthesis. While many theoretical aspects of PWD have been previously addressed in the literature, the practical advantages of the PWD method to assess the acoustic behavior of real rooms have been barely explored so far. In this paper, the PWD method is employed to analyze the sound field inside a selected set of real rooms having a well-defined purpose. To this end, a circular microphone array is used to capture and process a number of impulse responses at different spatial positions, providing angle-dependent data for both direct and reflected wavefronts. The detection of reflected plane waves is performed by means of image processing techniques applied over the raw array response data and over the PWD data, showing the usefulness of image-processing-based methods for room acoustics analysis.

  16. A proof of the Riemann hypothesis by using the series representation of the Riemann zeta function

    CERN Document Server

    2011-01-01

    The Riemann hypothesis was proved in this paper. First, a curve integral of the Riemann zeta function zeta(s) was formed, which is along a horizontal line from s to 1-\\bar{s} which are two nontrivial zeros of zeta(s) and symmetric about the vertical line Re s=1/2. Next, the result of the curve integral was derived and proved equal to zero. Then, by proving a lemma of central dissymmetry of the Riemann zeta function zeta(s), two nontrivial zeros s and 1-\\bar{s} were proved being a same zero or satisfying 1-\\bar{s}=s. Hence, the nontrivial zeros of zeta(s) all have real part Re s=1/2, that is, the Riemann hypothesis was proved.

  17. Limit of Riemann Solutions to the Nonsymmetric System of Keyfitz-Kranzer Type

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The limit of Riemann solutions to the nonsymmetric system of Keyfitz-Kranzer type with a scaled pressure is considered for both polytropic gas and generalized Chaplygin gas. In the former case, the delta shock wave can be obtained as the limit of shock wave and contact discontinuity when u->u+ and the parameter ϵ tends to zero. The point is, the delta shock wave is not the one of transport equations, which is obviously different from cases of some other systems such as Euler equations or relativistic Euler equations. For the generalized Chaplygin gas, unlike the polytropic or isothermal gas, there exists a certain critical value ϵ2 depending only on the Riemann initial data, such that when ϵ drops to ϵ2, the delta shock wave appears as u->u+, which is actually a delta solution of the same system in one critical case. Then as ϵ becomes smaller and goes to zero at last, the delta shock wave solution is the exact one of transport equations. Furthermore, the vacuum states and contact discontinuities can be obtained as the limit of Riemann solutions when u-

This new method for fault location on electric power transmission lines uses only one-terminal fault signals. The main feature of the method is hat it uses the high frequency components in fault signal and considers the influence of the source network by using a traveling wave propagation characteristics.

    We study the analytic structure of partial-wave amplitudes derived from u- and t-channel exchange processes. The latter plays a crucial role in dispersion-theory approaches to coupled-channel systems that model final state interactions in QCD. A general spectral representation is established that is valid in the presence of anomalous thresholds, decaying particles or overlapping left-hand and right-hand cut structures as it occurs frequently in hadron physics. The results are exemplified at hand of ten specific processes.

  4. A Riemann problem based method for solving compressible and incompressible flows

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lu, Haitian; Zhu, Jun; Wang, Chunwu; Wang, Donghong; Zhao, Ning

    2017-02-01

    A Riemann problem based method for solving two-medium flow including compressible and incompressible regions is presented. The material interface is advanced by front tracking method and the material interface boundary conditions are defined by modified ghost fluid method. A coupled compressible and incompressible Riemann problem constructed in the normal direction of the material interface is proposed to predict the interfacial states. With the ghost fluid states, the compressible and incompressible flows are solved by discontinuous Galerkin method. An incompressible discontinuous Galerkin method with nonuniform time step is also deduced. For shock wave formed in compressible flow, the numerical errors for the ghost fluid method in earlier works are analyzed and discussed in the numerical examples. It shows that the proposed method can provide reasonable results including shock wave location.

  5. Direct numerical solution of the Lippmann-Schwinger equation in coordinate space without partial-wave decomposition

    Kuruoǧlu, Zeki C.

    2016-11-01

    Direct numerical solution of the coordinate-space integral-equation version of the two-particle Lippmann-Schwinger (LS) equation is considered without invoking the traditional partial-wave decomposition. The singular kernel of the three-dimensional LS equation in coordinate space is regularized by a subtraction technique. The resulting nonsingular integral equation is then solved via the Nystrom method employing a direct-product quadrature rule for three variables. To reduce the computational burden of discretizing three variables, advantage is taken of the fact that, for central potentials, the azimuthal angle can be integrated out, leaving a two-variable reduced integral equation. A regularization method for the kernel of the two-variable integral equation is derived from the treatment of the singularity in the three-dimensional equation. A quadrature rule constructed as the direct product of single-variable quadrature rules for radial distance and polar angle is used to discretize the two-variable integral equation. These two- and three-variable methods are tested on the Hartree potential. The results show that the Nystrom method for the coordinate-space LS equation compares favorably in terms of its ease of implementation and effectiveness with the Nystrom method for the momentum-space version of the LS equation.

  6. A reconfigurable digital filterbank for hearing-aid systems with a variety of sound wave decomposition plans.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Wei, Ying; Liu, Debao

    2013-06-01

    Current hearing-aid systems have fixed sound wave decomposition plans due to the use of fixed filterbanks, thus cannot provide enough flexibility for the compensation of different hearing impairment cases. In this paper, a reconfigurable filterbank that consists of a multiband-generation block and a subband-selection block is proposed. Different subbands can be produced according to the control parameters without changing the structure of the filterbank system. The use of interpolation, decimation, and frequency-response masking enables us to reduce the computational complexity by realizing the entire system with only three prototype filters. Reconfigurability of the proposed filterbank enables hearing-impaired people to customize hearing aids based on their own specific conditions to improve their hearing ability. We show, by means of examples, that the proposed filterbank can achieve a better matching to the audiogram and has smaller complexity compared with the fixed filterbank. The drawback of the proposed method is that the throughput delay is relatively long (>20 ms), which needs to be further reduced before it can be used in a real hearing-aid application.

    Active ultrasonic arrays are very useful for structural health monitoring (SHM) of large plate-like structures. Large areas of a plate can be monitored from a fixed position but it normally requires precise information on material properties. Self-focusing methods can perform well without the exact knowledge of a medium and array parameters. In this paper a method for selective focusing of Lamb waves will be presented. The algorithm is an extension of the DORT method (French acronym for decomposition of time-reversal operator) where the continuous wavelet transform (CWT) is used for the time-frequency representation (TFR) of nonstationary signals instead of the discrete Fourier transform. The performance of the methods is compared and verified in the paper using both simulated and experimental data. It is shown that the extension of the DORT method with the use of TFR considerably improved its resolving ability. To experimentally evaluate the performance of the proposed method, a linear array of small piezoelectric transducers attached to an aluminum plate was used to obtain interelement responses, required for beam self-focusing on targets present in the plate. The array was used for the transmission of signals calculated with the DORT-CWT algorithm. To verify the self-focusing effect the backpropagated field generated in the experiment was sensed using laser scanning vibrometer.

    It is possible to define an analog of the Riemann tensor for Nth order Lovelock gravity, its characterizing property being that the trace of its Bianchi derivative yields the corresponding analog of the Einstein tensor. Interestingly there exist two parallel but distinct such analogs and the main purpose of this note is to reconcile both formulations. In addition we will introduce a simple tensor identity and use it to show that any pure Lovelock vacuum in odd d = 2N + 1 dimensions is Lovelock flat, i.e. any vacuum solution of the theory has vanishing Lovelock-Riemann tensor. Further, in the presence of cosmological constant it is the Lovelock-Weyl tensor that vanishes. (orig.)

    By the classical genus zero Sugawara construction one obtains representations of the Virasoro algebra from admissible representations of affine Lie algebras (Kac-Moody algebras of affine type). In this lecture, the classical construction is recalled first. Then, after giving a review on the global multi-point algebras of Krichever-Novikov type for compact Riemann surfaces of arbitrary genus, the higher genus Sugawara construction is introduced. Finally, the lecture reports on results obtained in a joint work with O. K. Sheinman. We were able to show that also in the higher genus, multi-point situation one obtains (from representations of the global algebras of affine type) representations of a centrally extended algebra of meromorphic vector fields on Riemann surfaces. The latter algebra is a generalization of the Virasoro algebra to higher genus.

Secondly, both these components of a super-Hamiltonian $\\mathcal{H}$ are defined along certain topologically non-trivial complex curves r(±)() which spread over several Riemann sheets of the wave function. The non-uniqueness of our choice of the map $\\mathcal{T}$ between `tobogganic' partner curves r(+)() and r(−)() is emphasized.

    2016-01-01

    Under the hypothesis of small deformations, the equations of 1D elastodynamics write as a 2 x 2 hyperbolic system of conservation laws. Here, we study the Riemann problem for convex and nonconvex constitutive laws. In the convex case, the solution can include shock waves or rarefaction waves. In the nonconvex case, compound waves must also be considered. In both convex and nonconvex cases, a new existence criterion for the initial velocity jump is obtained. Also, admissibility regions are determined. Lastly, analytical solutions are completely detailed for various constitutive laws (hyperbola, tanh and polynomial), and reference test cases are proposed.

    Ultrasonic guided waves have been extensively applied for non-destructive testing of plate-like structures particularly pipes in past two decades. In this regard, if a structure has a simple geometry, obtained guided waves' signals are easy to explain. However, any small degree of complexity in the geometry such as contacting with other materials may cause an extra amount of complication in the interpretation of guided wave signals. The problem deepens if defects have irregular shapes such as natural corrosion. Signal processing techniques that have been proposed for guided wave signals' analysis are generally good for simple signals obtained in a highly controlled experimental environment. In fact, guided wave signals in a real situation such as the existence of natural corrosion in wall-covered pipes are much more complicated. Considering pipes in residential buildings that pass through concrete walls, in this paper we introduced Smooth Empirical Mode Decomposition (SEMD) to efficiently separate overlapped guided waves. As empirical mode decomposition (EMD) which is a good candidate for analyzing non-stationary signals, suffers from some shortcomings, wavelet transform was adopted in the sifting stage of EMD to improve its outcome in SEMD. However, selection of mother wavelet that suits best for our purpose plays an important role. Since in guided wave inspection, the incident waves are well known and are usually tone-burst signals, we tailored a complex tone-burst signal to be used as our mother wavelet. In the sifting stage of EMD, wavelet de-noising was applied to eliminate unwanted frequency components from each IMF. SEMD greatly enhances the performance of EMD in guided wave analysis for highly contaminated signals. In our experiment on concrete covered pipes with natural corrosion, this method not only separates the concrete wall indication clearly in time domain signal, a natural corrosion with complex geometry that was hidden and located inside the

    Physicists become acquainted with special functions early in their studies. Consider our perennial model, the harmonic oscillator, for which we need Hermite functions, or the Laguerre functions in quantum mechanics. Here a particular number-theoretical function is chosen, the Riemann zeta function, and its influence on the realm of physics is examined and also how physics may be suggestive for the resolution of one of mathematics’ most famous unconfirmed conjectures, the Riemann hypothesis. Does physics hold an essential key to the solution for this more than 100-year-old problem? In this work numerous models from different branches of physics are examined, from classical mechanics to statistical physics, where this function plays an integral role. This function is also shown to be related to quantum chaos and how its pole structure encodes when particles can undergo Bose-Einstein condensation at low temperature. Throughout these examinations light is shed on how the Riemann hypothesis can highlight physics. Naturally, the aim is not to be comprehensive, but rather focusing on the major models and aim to give an informed starting point for the interested reader.

    Plate impact experiments on the (210), (100), and (111) planes were performed to examine the role of crystalline anisotropy on the shock-induced decomposition of cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine (RDX) crystals. Time-resolved emission spectroscopy was used to probe the decomposition of single crystals shocked to peak stresses ranging between 7 and 20 GPa. Emission produced by decomposition intermediates was analyzed in terms of induction time to emission, emission intensity, and the emission spectra shapes as a function of stress and time. Utilizing these features, we found that the shock-induced decomposition of RDX crystals exhibits considerable anisotropy. Crystals shocked on the (210) and (100) planes were more sensitive to decomposition than crystals shocked on the (111) plane. The possible sources of the observed anisotropy are discussed with regard to the inelastic deformation mechanisms of shocked RDX. Our results suggest that, despite the anisotropy observed for shock initiation, decomposition pathways for all three orientations are similar.

    2017-02-01

    It is known that HLL-type schemes are more dissipative than schemes based on characteristic decompositions. However, HLL-type methods offer greater flexibility to large systems of hyperbolic conservation laws because the eigenstructure of the flux Jacobian is not needed. We demonstrate in the present work that several HLL-type Riemann solvers are provably entropy stable. Further, we provide convex combinations of standard dissipation terms to create hybrid HLL-type methods that have less dissipation while retaining entropy stability. The decrease in dissipation is demonstrated for the ideal MHD equations with a numerical example.

    In this work the fractional Hunter-Saxton equation applied in the study of diffusion of nematic liquid crystals was done involving partial operators with two fractional orders, α and β, via Atangana-Riemann and Atangana-Caputo with bi-order and via Riemann-Liouville, Caputo-Fabrizio-Riemann and Atangana-Baleanu-Riemann for the space domain. The mathematical equation underpinning this physical phenomenon was solved numerically using an iterative scheme where the numerical approximations for second order were developed. The new approach with two fractional orders is able to consider media with two different layers, scales and properties. The generalization of this equation exhibit different cases of anomalous behavior and the numerical solutions obtained describes the propagation of waves in a nematic liquid cristal.

    The characterization of three-dimensional space and time-dependent coherent structures and internal waves in stratified environment is one of the most challenging tasks in geophysical fluid dynamics. Proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) is applied to 2-D slices of vorticity and horizontal divergence obtained from 3-D DNS of a stratified turbulent wake of a towed sphere at Re=5x103 and Fr=4. The numerical method employed solves the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations under the Boussinesq approximation. The temporal discretization consists of three fractional steps: an explicit advancement of the nonlinear terms, an implicit solution of the Poisson equation for the pseudo-pressure (which enforces incompressibility), and an implicit solution of the Helmholtz equation for the viscous terms (where boundary conditions are imposed). The computational domain is assumed to be periodic in the horizontal direction and non-periodic in the vertical direction. The 2-D slices are sampled along the stream-depth (Oxz), span-depth (Oyz) and stream-span planes (Oxy) for 231 times during the interval, Nt ∈ [12,35] (N is the stratification frequency). During this interval, internal wave radiation from the wake is most pronounced and the vorticity field in the wake undergoes distinct structural transitions. POD was chosen amongst the available statistical tools due to its advantage in characterization of simulated and experimentally measured velocity gradient fields. The computational procedure, applied to any random vector field, finds the most coherent feature from the given ensemble of field realizations. The decomposed empirical eigenfunctions could be referred to as "coherent structures", since they are highly correlated in an average sense with the flow field. In our analysis, we follow the computationally efficient method of 'snapshots' to find the POD eigenfunctions of the ensemble of vorticity field realizations. The results contains of the separate POD modes, along with

    We analize the Berry-Keating model and the Sierra and Rodr\\'iguez-Laguna Hamiltonian within the polymeric quantization formalism. By using the polymer representation, we obtain for both models, the associated polymeric quantum Hamiltonians and the corresponding stationary wave functions. The self-adjointness condition provide a proper domain for the Hamiltonian operator and the energy spectrum, which turned out to be dependent on an introduced scale parameter. By performing a counting of semiclassical states, we prove that the polymer representation reproduces the smooth part of the Riemann-von Mangoldt formula, and introduces a correction depending on the energy and the scale parameter, which resembles the fluctuation behavior of the Riemann zeros.

  5. A meshless method for compressible flows with the HLLC Riemann solver

    CERN Document Server

    Ma, Z H; Qian, L

    2014-01-01

    The HLLC Riemann solver, which resolves both the shock waves and contact discontinuities, is popular to the computational fluid dynamics community studying compressible flow problems with mesh methods. Although it was reported to be used in meshless methods, the crucial information and procedure to realise this scheme within the framework of meshless methods were not clarified fully. Moreover, the capability of the meshless HLLC solver to deal with compressible liquid flows is not completely clear yet as very few related studies have been reported. Therefore, a comprehensive investigation of a dimensional non-split HLLC Riemann solver for the least-square meshless method is carried out in this study. The stiffened gas equation of state is adopted to capacitate the proposed method to deal with single-phase gases and/or liquids effectively, whilst direct applying the perfect gas equation of state for compressible liquid flows might encounter great difficulties in correlating the state variables. The spatial der...

    Make an exponential transformation in the integral formulation of Riemann's zeta-function zeta(s) for Re(s) > 0. Separately, in addition make the substitution s -> 1 - s and then transform back to s again using the functional equation. Using residue calculus, we can in this way get two alternative, equivalent series expansions for zeta(s) of order N, both valid inside the "critical strip", i e for 0 < Re(s) < 1. Together, these two expansions embody important characteristics of the zeta-funct...

    We study the Teichmueller theory of Riemann surfaces with orbifold points of order 2 using the fat graph technique. The previously developed technique of quantization, classical and quantum mapping-class group transformations, and Poisson and quantum algebras of geodesic functions is applicable to the surfaces with orbifold points. We describe classical and quantum braid group relations for particular sets of geodesic functions corresponding to A{sub n} and D{sub n} algebras and describe their central elements for the Poisson and quantum algebras.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tovbis, Alexander; El, Gennady A.

    2016-10-01

    The main goal of this paper is to put together: a) the Whitham theory applicable to slowly modulated N-phase nonlinear wave solutions to the focusing nonlinear Schrödinger (fNLS) equation, and b) the Riemann-Hilbert Problem approach to particular solutions of the fNLS in the semiclassical (small dispersion) limit that develop slowly modulated N-phase nonlinear wave in the process of evolution. Both approaches have their own merits and limitations. Understanding of the interrelations between them could prove beneficial for a broad range of problems involving the semiclassical fNLS.

    Yokoyama, Naoto; Takaoka, Masanori

    2014-12-01

    A single-wave-number representation of a nonlinear energy spectrum, i.e., a stretching-energy spectrum, is found in elastic-wave turbulence governed by the Föppl-von Kármán (FvK) equation. The representation enables energy decomposition analysis in the wave-number space and analytical expressions of detailed energy budgets in the nonlinear interactions. We numerically solved the FvK equation and observed the following facts. Kinetic energy and bending energy are comparable with each other at large wave numbers as the weak turbulence theory suggests. On the other hand, stretching energy is larger than the bending energy at small wave numbers, i.e., the nonlinearity is relatively strong. The strong correlation between a mode a(k) and its companion mode a(-k) is observed at the small wave numbers. The energy is input into the wave field through stretching-energy transfer at the small wave numbers, and dissipated through the quartic part of kinetic-energy transfer at the large wave numbers. Total-energy flux consistent with energy conservation is calculated directly by using the analytical expression of the total-energy transfer, and the forward energy cascade is observed clearly.

    2014-07-01

    The thermal decomposition of 1-chloropropane in argon was studied behind reflected shock waves in a single pulse shock tube over the temperature range of 1015-1220 K. The reaction mainly goes through unimolecular elimination of HCl. The major products observed in the decomposition are propylene and ethylene, while the minor products identified are methane and propane. The rate constant for HCl elimination in the studied temperature range is estimated to be k(1015-1220 K) = 1.63 × 1013exp(-(60.1 ± 1.0) kcal mol-1/RT) s-1. The DFT calculations were carried out to identify the transition state(s) for the major reaction channel; and rate coefficient for this reaction is obtained to be k(800-1500 K) = 5.01 × 1014exp(-(58.8) kcal mol-1/RT) s-1. The results are compared with the experimental findings.

    2015-10-01

    We analyze the Newton flow of the Riemann zeta function ζ and rederive in an elementary way the Riemann-von Mangoldt estimate of the number of non-trivial zeros below a given imaginary part. The representation of the flow on the Riemann sphere highlights the importance of the North pole as the starting and turning point of the separatrices, that is of the continental divides of the Newton flow. We argue that the resulting patterns may lead to deeper insight into the Riemann hypothesis. For this purpose we also compare and contrast the Newton flow of ζ with that of a function which in many ways is similar to ζ, but violates the Riemann hypothesis. We dedicate this paper to the memory of Richard Lewis Arnowitt and his many contributions to general relativity and high energy physics.

  17. Zeros of the Partition Function in the Randomized Riemann Gas

    CERN Document Server

    Dueñas, J G

    2014-01-01

    An arithmetic gas is a second quantized mechanical system where the partition function is a Dirichlet series of a given arithmetic function. One example of such system is known as the bosonic Riemann gas. We assume that the hamiltonian of the bosonic Riemann gas has a random variable with some probability distribution over an ensemble of hamiltonians. We discuss the singularity structure for the average free energy density of this arithmetic gas in the complex $\\beta$ plane. First, assuming the Riemann hypothesis, there is a clustering of singular points along the imaginary axis coming from the non-trivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function on the critical line. This singularity structure associated to the zeros of the partition functions of the ensemble in the complex $\\beta$ plane are the Fisher zeros. Second, there are also logarithmic singularities due to the poles of the Riemann zeta functions associated to the ensemble of hamiltonians. Finally we present the average energy density of the system.

    We develop a general approach that uses holomorphic 1-forms to parameterize anatomical surfaces with complex (possibly branching) topology. Rather than evolve the surface geometry to a plane or sphere, we instead use the fact that all orientable surfaces are Riemann surfaces and admit conformal structures, which induce special curvilinear coordinate systems on the surfaces. Based on Riemann surface structure, we can then canonically partition the surface into patches. Each of these patches can be conformally mapped to a parallelogram. The resulting surface subdivision and the parameterizations of the components are intrinsic and stable. To illustrate the technique, we computed conformal structures for several types of anatomical surfaces in MRI scans of the brain, including the cortex, hippocampus, and lateral ventricles. We found that the resulting parameterizations were consistent across subjects, even for branching structures such as the ventricles, which are otherwise difficult to parameterize. Compared with other variational approaches based on surface inflation, our technique works on surfaces with arbitrary complexity while guaranteeing minimal distortion in the parameterization. It also offers a way to explicitly match landmark curves in anatomical surfaces such as the cortex, providing a surface-based framework to compare anatomy statistically and to generate grids on surfaces for PDE-based signal processing.

  20. The Riemann Problem for Hyperbolic Equations under a Nonconvex Flux with Two Inflection Points

    CERN Document Server

    Fossati, Marco

    2014-01-01

    This report addresses the solution of Riemann problems for hyperbolic equations when the nonlinear characteristic fields loose their genuine nonlinearity. In this context, exact solvers for nonconvex 1D Riemann problems are developed. First a scalar conservation law for a nonconvex flux with two inflection points is studied. Then the P-system for an isothermal version of the van der Waals gas model is examined in a range of temperatures allowing for a nonconvex pressure function. Eventually the system of the Euler equations of gasdynamics is considered for the polytropic van der Waals gas. In this case, a suitably large specific heat is considered such that the isentropes display a local loss of convexity near the saturation curve and the critical point. Such a nonconvex physical model allows for nonclassical waves to appear as a result of the change of sign of the fundamental derivative of gasdynamics. The solution of the Riemann problem for the considered real gas model reduces to a system of two nonlinear ...

  1. The influence of magnetic field on short-wavelength instability of Riemann ellipsoids

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mizerski, K. A.; Bajer, K.

    2011-10-01

    We address the question of stability of the so-called S-type Riemann ellipsoids, i.e. a family of Euler flows in gravitational equilibrium with the vorticity and background rotation aligned along the principal axis perpendicular to the flow. The Riemann ellipsoids are the simplest models of self-gravitating, tidally deformed stars in binary systems, with the ellipticity of the flow modelling the tidal deformation. By the use of the WKB theory we show that mathematically the problem of stability of Riemann ellipsoids with respect to short-wavelength perturbations can be reduced to the problem of magneto-elliptic instability in rotating systems, studied previously by Mizerski and Bajer [K.A. Mizerski, K. Bajer, The magneto-elliptic instability of rotating systems, J. Fluid Mech. 632 (2009) 401-430]. In other words the equations describing the evolution of short-wavelength perturbations of the Riemann ellipsoids considered in Lagrangian variables are the same as those for the evolution of the magneto-elliptic-rotational ( MER) waves in unbounded domain. This allowed us to use the most unstable MER eigenmodes found in Mizerski et al. [K.A. Mizerski, K. Bajer, H.K. Moffatt, The α-effect associated with elliptical instability, J. Fluid Mech., 2010 (in preparation)] to provide an estimate of the characteristic tidal synchronization time in binary star systems. We use the idea of Tassoul [J.-L. Tassoul, On synchronization in early-type binaries, Astrophys. J. 322 (1987) 856-861] and that the interactions between perturbations significantly increase the effective viscosity and hence the energy dissipation in an Ekman-type boundary layer at the surface of the star. The results obtained suggest that if the magnetic field generated by (say) the secondary component of a binary system is strong enough to affect the flow dynamics in the primary, non-magnetized component, the characteristic tidal synchronization time can be significantly reduced.

    We consider the Pauli group Pq generated by unitary quantum generators X (shift) and Z (clock) acting on vectors of the q-dimensional Hilbert space. It has been found that the number of maximal mutually commuting sets within Pq is controlled by the Dedekind psi function ψ(q) and that there exists a specific inequality involving the Euler constant γ ˜ 0.577 that is only satisfied at specific low dimensions q ∈ A = { 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 18, 30}. The set A is closely related to the set A∪{ 1, 24} of integers that are totally Goldbach, i.e., that consist of all primes p Riemann hypothesis in terms of R(Nr). We discuss these number-theoretical properties in the context of the qudit commutation structure.

    2013-06-01

    We give an orbifold Riemann-Roch formula in closed form for the Hilbert series of a quasismooth polarized n-fold (X,D), under the assumption that X is projectively Gorenstein with only isolated orbifold points. Our formula is a sum of parts each of which is integral and Gorenstein symmetric of the same canonical weight; the orbifold parts are called ice cream functions. This form of the Hilbert series is particularly useful for computer algebra, and we illustrate it on examples of {K3} surfaces and Calabi-Yau 3-folds. These results apply also with higher dimensional orbifold strata (see [1] and [2]), although the precise statements are considerably trickier. We expect to return to this in future publications.

    2016-01-01

    This book gathers contributions by respected experts on the theory of isometric immersions between Riemannian manifolds, and focuses on the geometry of CR structures on submanifolds in Hermitian manifolds. CR structures are a bundle theoretic recast of the tangential Cauchy–Riemann equations in complex analysis involving several complex variables. The book covers a wide range of topics such as Sasakian geometry, Kaehler and locally conformal Kaehler geometry, the tangential CR equations, Lorentzian geometry, holomorphic statistical manifolds, and paraquaternionic CR submanifolds. Intended as a tribute to Professor Aurel Bejancu, who discovered the notion of a CR submanifold of a Hermitian manifold in 1978, the book provides an up-to-date overview of several topics in the geometry of CR submanifolds. Presenting detailed information on the most recent advances in the area, it represents a useful resource for mathematicians and physicists alike.

    2016-01-13

    Traditional inductors in modern electronics consume excessive areas in the integrated circuits. Carbon nanostructures can offer efficient alternatives if the recognized high electrical conductivity of graphene can be properly organized in space to yield a current-generated magnetic field that is both strong and confined. Here we report on an extraordinary inductor nanostructure naturally occurring as a screw dislocation in graphitic carbons. Its elegant helicoid topology, resembling a Riemann surface, ensures full covalent connectivity of all graphene layers, joined in a single layer wound around the dislocation line. If voltage is applied, electrical currents flow helically and thus give rise to a very large (∼1 T at normal operational voltage) magnetic field and bring about superior (per mass or volume) inductance, both owing to unique winding density. Such a solenoid of small diameter behaves as a quantum conductor whose current distribution between the core and exterior varies with applied voltage, resulting in nonlinear inductance.

In the particular case when is the × identity matrix, we give a criteria to find local minima for $K_H$ and we give examples of hyperelliptic curves where the curvature function $K_H$ is a Morse function.

    We present a compact formula for the supersymmetric partition function of 2d N=(2,2), 3d N=2 and 4d N=1 gauge theories on $\\Sigma_g \\times T^n$ with partial topological twist on $\\Sigma_g$, where $\\Sigma_g$ is a Riemann surface of arbitrary genus and $T^n$ is a torus with n=0,1,2, respectively. In 2d we also include certain local operator insertions, and in 3d we include Wilson line operator insertions along $S^1$. For genus g=1, the formula computes the Witten index. We present a few simple Abelian and non-Abelian examples, including new tests of non-perturbative dualities. We also show that the large N partition function of ABJM theory on $\\Sigma_g \\times S^1$ reproduces the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy of BPS black holes in AdS4 whose horizon has $\\Sigma_g$ topology.

    2016-01-01

    We present the partition function of a most generic $U(N)$ single plaquette model in terms of representations of unitary group. Extremising the partition function in large N limit we obtain a relation between eigenvalues of unitary matrices and number of boxes in the most dominant Young tableaux distribution. Since, eigenvalues of unitary matrices behave like coordinates of free fermions whereas, number of boxes in a row is like conjugate momenta of the same, a relation between them allows us to provide a phase space distribution for different phases of the unitary model under consideration. This proves a universal feature that all the phases of a generic unitary matrix model can be described in terms of topology of free fermi phase space distribution. Finally, using this result and analytic properties of resolvent that satisfy Dyson-Schwinger equation, we present a phase space distribution of unfolded zeros of Riemann zeta function.

    We use the conservation law of the stress-energy and spin tensors to study the motion of massive brane-like objects in Riemann-Cartan geometry. The world-sheet equations and boundary conditions are obtained in a manifestly covariant form. In the particle case, the resultant world-line equations turn out to exhibit a novel spin-curvature coupling. In particular, the spin of a zero-size particle does not couple to the background curvature. In the string case, the world-sheet dynamics is studied for some special choices of spin and torsion. As a result, the known coupling to the Kalb-Ramond antisymmetric external field is obtained. Geometrically, the Kalb-Ramond field has been recognized as a part of the torsion itself, rather than the torsion potential.

    Brio, M.; Zakharian, A. R.; Webb, G. M.

    2001-02-01

    We construct a Riemann solver based on two-dimensional linear wave contributions to the numerical flux that generalizes the one-dimensional method due to Roe (1981, J. Comput. Phys.43, 157). The solver is based on a multistate Riemann problem and is suitable for arbitrary triangular grids or any other finite volume tessellations of the plane. We present numerical examples illustrating the performance of the method using both first- and second-order-accurate numerical solutions. The numerical flux contributions are due to one-dimensional waves and multidimensional waves originating from the corners of the computational cell. Under appropriate CFL restrictions, the contributions of one-dimensional waves dominate the flux, which explains good performance of dimensionally split solvers in practice. The multidimensional flux corrections increase the accuracy and stability, allowing a larger time step. The improvements are more pronounced on a coarse mesh and for large CFL numbers. For the second-order method, the improvements can be comparable to the improvements resulting from a less diffusive limiter.

    In recent years, there has been some interest in applying ideas and methods taken from Physics in order to approach several challenging mathematical problems, particularly the Riemann Hypothesis. Most of these kinds of contributions are suggested by some quantum statistical physics problems or by questions originated in chaos theory. In this article, we show that the real part of the non-trivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function extremizes the grand potential corresponding to a simple model of one-dimensional classical lattice gas, the critical point being located at 1/2 as the Riemann Hypothesis claims.

    Full Text Available There has been some interest in a criterion for the Riemann hypothesis proved recently by Xian-Jin Li [Li X.-J.: The Positivity of a Sequence of Numbers and the Riemann Hypothesis. J. Number Theory 65 (1997, 325-333]. The present paper reports on a numerical computation of the first 3300 of Li's coefficients which appear in this criterion. The main empirical observation is that these coefficients can be separated in two parts. One of these grows smoothly while the other is very small and oscillatory. This apparent smallness is quite unexpected. If it persisted till infinity then the Riemann hypothesis would be true.

This theorem states that if f is a continuous function and ρ is a function of bounded variation in a closed interval of real line, f is Riemann-Stieltjes integrable with respect to ρ.

  15. Electronic-nuclear entanglement in H2 +: Schmidt decomposition of non-Born-Oppenheimer wave functions expanded in nonorthogonal basis sets

    We compute the entanglement between the electronic and vibrational motions in the simplest molecular system, the hydrogen molecular ion, considering the molecule as a bipartite system, electron and vibrational motion. For that purpose we compute an accurate total non-Born-Oppenheimer wave function in terms of a huge expansion using nonorthogonal B-spline basis sets that expand separately the electronic and nuclear wave functions. According to the Schmidt decomposition theorem for bipartite systems, widely used in quantum-information theory, it is possible to find a much shorter but equivalent expansion in terms of the natural orbitals or Schmidt bases for the electronic and nuclear half spaces. Here we extend the Schmidt decomposition theorem to the case in which nonorthogonal bases are used to span the partitioned Hilbert spaces. This extension is first illustrated with two simple coupled systems, the former without an exact solution and the latter exactly solvable. In these model systems of distinguishable coupled particles it is shown that the entanglement content does not increase monotonically with the excitation energy, but only within the manifold of states that belong to an existing excitation mode, if any. In the hydrogen molecular ion the entanglement content for each non-Born-Oppenheimer vibronic state is quantified through the von Neumann and linear entropies and we show that entanglement serves as a witness to distinguish vibronic states related to different Born-Oppenheimer molecular energy curves or electronic excitation modes.

    We analyze the anomalous wave structure appearing in flow dynamics under the influence of magnetic field in materials described by non-ideal equations of state. We consider the system of magnetohydrodynamics equations closed by a general equation of state (EOS) and propose a complete spectral decomposition of the fluxes that allows us to derive an expression of the nonlinearity factor as the mathematical tool to determine the nature of the wave phenomena. We prove that the possible formation of non-classical wave structure is determined by both the thermodynamic properties of the material and the magnetic field as well as its possible rotation. We demonstrate that phase transitions induced by material properties do not necessarily imply the loss of genuine nonlinearity of the wavefields as is the case in classical hydrodynamics. The analytical expression of the nonlinearity factor allows us to determine the specific amount of magnetic field necessary to prevent formation of complex structure induced by phase transition in the material. We illustrate our analytical approach by considering two non-convex EOS that exhibit phase transitions and anomalous behavior in the evolution. We present numerical experiments validating the analysis performed through a set of one-dimensional Riemann problems. In the examples we show how to determine the appropriate amount of magnetic field in the initial conditions of the Riemann problem to transform a thermodynamic composite wave into a simple nonlinear wave.

    We have extended the procedure to find the exact solution of the Riemann problem in relativistic hydrodynamics to a particular case of relativistic magnetohydrodynamics in which the magnetic field of the initial states is tangential to the discontinuity and orthogonal to the flow velocity. The wave pattern produced after the break up of the initial discontinuity is analogous to the non--magnetic case and we show that the problem can be understood as a purely relativistic hydrodynamical problem with a modified equation of state. The new degree of freedom introduced by the non-zero component of the magnetic field results in interesting effects consisting in the change of the wave patterns for given initial thermodynamical states, in a similar way to the effects arising from the introduction of tangential velocities. Secondly, when the magnetic field dominates the thermodynamical pressure and energy, the wave speeds approach the speed of light leading to fast shocks and fast and arbitrarily thin rarefaction wave...

    In this paper a method for resolving the various boundary conditions (BCs) for the first order Boltzmann transport equation (BTE) is described. The approach has been formulated to resolve general BCs using an arbitrary angular approximation method within any weighted residual finite element formulation. The method is based on a Riemann decomposition which is used to decompose the particles' angular dependence into in-coming and out-going information through a surface. This operation recasts the flux into a Riemann space which is used directly to remove any incoming information, and thus satisfy void boundary conditions. The method is then extended by its coupling with a set of mapping operators that redirect the outgoing flux to form incoming images resembling other specified boundary conditions. These operators are based on Galerkin projections and are defined to enable reflective and diffusive (white) BCs to be resolved. A small number of numerical examples are then presented to demonstrate the method's ability in resolving void, reflective and white BCs. These examples have been chosen in order to show the method working for arbitrary angled surfaces. Furthermore, as the method has been designed for an arbitrary angular approximation, both S{sub N} and P{sub N} calculations are presented.

  5. Robinson manifolds and Cauchy-Riemann spaces

    2002-01-01

    A Robinson manifold is defined as a Lorentz manifold (M, g) of dimension 2n >= 4 with a bundle N subset of C centre dot TM such that the fibres of N are maximal totally null and there holds the integrability condition [Sec N, Sec N] subset of Sec N. The real part of N intersection N-bar is a bundle of null directions tangent to a congruence of null geodesics. This generalizes the notion of a shear-free congruence of null geodesics (SNG) in dimension 4. Under a natural regularity assumption, the set M of all these geodesics has the structure of a Cauchy-Riemann manifold of dimension 2n - 1. Conversely, every such CR manifold lifts to many Robinson manifolds. Three definitions of a CR manifold are described here in considerable detail; they are equivalent under the assumption of real analyticity, but not in the smooth category. The distinctions between these definitions have a bearing on the validity of the Robinson theorem on the existence of null Maxwell fields associated with SNGs. This paper is largely a re...

  7. Topologically Twisted $N=(2,2)$ Supersymmetric Yang-Mills Theory on Arbitrary Discretized Riemann Surface

    CERN Document Server

    Matsuura, So; Ohta, Kazutoshi

    2014-01-01

    We define supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on an arbitrary two-dimensional lattice (polygon decomposition) with preserving one supercharge. When a smooth Riemann surface $\\Sigma_g$ with genus $g$ emerges as an appropriate continuum limit of the generic lattice, the discretized theory becomes topologically twisted $\\mathcal{N}=(2,2)$ supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on $\\Sigma_g$. If we adopt the usual square lattice as a special case of the discretization, our formulation is identical with Sugino's lattice model. Although the tuning of parameters is generally required while taking the continuum limit, the number of the necessary parameters is at most two because of the gauge symmetry and the supersymmetry. In particular, we do not need any fine-tuning if we arrange the theory so as to possess an extra global $U(1)$ symmetry ($U(1)_{R}$ symmetry) which rotates the scalar fields.

  8. A matrix-exponential decomposition based time-domain method for calculating the defect states of scalar waves in two-dimensional periodic structures

    Science.gov (United States)

    Su, Xiao-Xing; Wang, Yue-Sheng; Zhang, Chuanzeng

    2017-05-01

    A time-domain method for calculating the defect states of scalar waves in two-dimensional (2D) periodic structures is proposed. In the time-stepping process of the proposed method, the column vector containing the spatially sampled field values is updated by multiplying it with an iteration matrix, which is written in a matrix-exponential form. The matrix-exponential is first computed by using the Suzuki's decomposition based technique of the fourth order, in which the Floquet-Bloch boundary conditions are incorporated. The obtained iteration matrix is then squared to enlarge the time-step that can be used in the time-stepping process (namely, the squaring technique), and the small nonzero elements in the iteration matrix is finally pruned to improve the sparse structure of the matrix (namely, the pruning technique). The numerical examples of the super-cell calculations for 2D defect-containing phononic crystal structures show that, the fourth order decomposition based technique for the matrix-exponential computation is much more efficient than the frequently used precise integration technique (PIT) if the PIT is of an order greater than 2. Although it is not unconditionally stable, the proposed time-domain method is particularly efficient for the super-cell calculations of the defect states in a 2D periodic structure containing a defect with a wave speed much higher than those of the background materials. For this kind of defect-containing structures, the time-stepping process can run stably for a sufficiently large number of the time-steps with a time-step much larger than the Courant-Friedrichs-Lewy (CFL) upper limit, and consequently the overall efficiency of the proposed time-domain method can be significantly higher than that of the conventional finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. Some physical interpretations on the properties of the band structures and the defect states of the calculated periodic structures are also presented.

  9. Using the Bi-Orthogonal Decomposition framework to compute the three dimensional Empirical Orthogonal Functions of stratospheric planetary waves from time correlation matrices

    Rolland, Joran; Domeisen, Daniela I. V.

    2016-04-01

    Many geophysical waves in the atmosphere or in the ocean have a three dimensional structure and contain a range of scales. This is for instance the case of planetary waves in the stratosphere connected to baroclinic eddies in the troposphere [1]. In the study of such waves from reanalysis data or output of numerical simulations, Empirical Orthogonal Functions (EOF) obtained as a Proper Orthogonal Decomposition of the data sets have been of great help. However, most of these computations rely on the diagonalisation of space correlation matrices: this means that the considered data set can only have a limited number of gridpoints. The main consequence is that such analyses are often only performed in planes (as function of height and latitude, or longitude and latitude for instance), which makes the educing of the three dimensional structure of the wave quite difficult. In the case of the afore mentionned waves, the matter of the longitudinal dependence or the proper correlation between modes through the tropopause is an open question. An elegant manner to circumvent this problem is to consider the output of the Orthogonal Decomposition as a whole. Indeed, it has been shown that the normalised time series of the amplitude of each EOF, far from just being decorrelated from one another, are actually another set of orthogonal functions. These can actually be computed through the diagonlisation of the time correlation matrix of the data set, just like the EOF were the result of the diagonalisation of the space correlation matrix. The signal is then fully decomposed in the framework of the Bi-Orthogonal Decomposition as the sum of the nth explained variance, time the nth eigenmode of the time correlation times the nth eigenmode of the spacial correlations [2,3]. A practical consequence of this result is that the EOF can be reconstructed from the projection of the dataset onto the eigenmodes of the time correlation matrix in the so-called snapshot method [4]. This is very

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available Convective gravity wave (GW sources are spatially localized and emit at the same time waves with a wide spectrum of phase speeds. Any wave analysis therefore compromises between spectral and spatial resolution. Future satellite borne limb imagers will for a first time provide real 3-D volumes of observations. These volumes will be however limited which will impose further constraints on the analysis technique. In this study a three dimensional few-wave approach fitting sinusoidal waves to limited 3-D volumes is introduced. The method is applied to simulated GWs above typhoon Ewiniar and GW momentum flux is estimated from temperature fluctuations. Phase speed spectra as well as average profiles of positive, negative and net momentum fluxes are compared to momentum flux estimated by Fourier transform as well as spatial averaging of wind fluctuations. The results agree within 10–20%. The few-wave method can also reveal the spatial orientation of the GWs with respect to the source. The relevance of the results for different types of measurements as well as its applicability to model data is discussed.

  11. On the Riemann Curvature Operators in Randers Spaces

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rafie-Rad, M.

    2013-05-01

    The Riemann curvature in Riemann-Finsler geometry can be regarded as a collection of linear operators on the tangent spaces. The algebraic properties of these operators may be linked to the geometry and the topology of the underlying space. The principal curvatures of a Finsler space (M, F) at a point x are the eigenvalues of the Riemann curvature operator at x. They are real functions κ on the slit tangent manifold TM0. A principal curvature κ(x, y) is said to be isotropic (respectively, quadratic) if κ(x, y)/F(x, y) is a function of x only (respectively, κ(x, y) is quadratic with respect to y). On the other hand, the Randers metrics are the most popular and prominent metrics in pure and applied disciplines. Here, it is proved that if a Randers metric admits an isotropic principal curvature, then F is of isotropic S-curvature. The same result is also established for F to admit a quadratic principal curvature. These results extend Shen's verbal results about Randers metrics of scalar flag curvature K = K(x) as well as those Randers metrics with quadratic Riemann curvature operator. The Riemann curvature Rik may be broken into two operators Rik and Jik. The isotropic and quadratic principal curvature are characterized in terms of the eigenvalues of R and J.

  12. A Numerical Test on the Riemann Hypothesis with Applications

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available Problem statement: The Riemann hypothesis involves two products of the zeta function ζ(s which are: Prime numbers and the zeros of the zeta function ζ(s. It states that the zeros of a certain complex-valued function ζ (s of a complex number s ≠ 1 all have a special form, which may be trivial or non trivial. Zeros at the negative even integers (i.e., at S = -2, S = -4, S = -6... are called the non-trivial zeros. The Riemann hypothesis is however concerned with the trivial zeros. Approach: This study tested the hypothesis numerically and established its relationship with prime numbers. Results: Test of the hypotheses was carried out via relative error and test for convergence through ratio integral test was proved to ascertain the results. Conclusion: The result obtained in the above findings and computations supports the fact that the Riemann hypothesis is true, as it assumed a smaller error as possible as x approaches infinity and that the distribution of primes was closely related to the Riemann hypothesis as was tested numerically and the Riemann hypothesis had a positive relationship with prime numbers.

    We present a novel numerical approach for the comprehensive, flexible, and accurate simulation of poro-elastic wave propagation in 2D polar coordinates. An important application of this method and its extensions will be the modeling of complex seismic wave phenomena in fluid-filled boreholes, which represents a major, and as of yet largely unresolved, computational problem in exploration geophysics. In view of this, we consider a numerical mesh, which can be arbitrarily heterogeneous, consisting of two or more concentric rings representing the fluid in the center and the surrounding porous medium. The spatial discretization is based on a Chebyshev expansion in the radial direction and a Fourier expansion in the azimuthal direction and a Runge–Kutta integration scheme for the time evolution. A domain decomposition method is used to match the fluid–solid boundary conditions based on the method of characteristics. This multi-domain approach allows for significant reductions of the number of grid points in the azimuthal direction for the inner grid domain and thus for corresponding increases of the time step and enhancements of computational efficiency. The viability and accuracy of the proposed method has been rigorously tested and verified through comparisons with analytical solutions as well as with the results obtained with a corresponding, previously published, and independently benchmarked solution for 2D Cartesian coordinates. Finally, the proposed numerical solution also satisfies the reciprocity theorem, which indicates that the inherent singularity associated with the origin of the polar coordinate system is adequately handled.

  16. On A Rapidly Converging Series For The Riemann Zeta Function

    Pichler, Alois

    2012-01-01

    To evaluate Riemann's zeta function is important for many investigations related to the area of number theory, and to have quickly converging series at hand in particular. We investigate a class of summation formulae and find, as a special case, a new proof of a rapidly converging series for the Riemann zeta function. The series converges in the entire complex plane, its rate of convergence being significantly faster than comparable representations, and so is a useful basis for evaluation algorithms. The evaluation of corresponding coefficients is not problematic, and precise convergence rates are elaborated in detail. The globally converging series obtained allow to reduce Riemann's hypothesis to similar properties on polynomials. And interestingly, Laguerre's polynomials form a kind of leitmotif through all sections.

    The idea of this work is to compare a new positive and entropy stable approximate Riemann solver by Francois Bouchut with a state-of the-art algorithm for astrophysical fluid dynamics. We implemented the new Riemann solver into an astrophysical PPM-code, the Prometheus code, and also made a version with a different, more theoretically grounded higher order algorithm than PPM. We present shock tube tests, two-dimensional instability tests and forced turbulence simulations in three dimensions. We find subtle differences between the codes in the shock tube tests, and in the statistics of the turbulence simulations. The new Riemann solver increases the computational speed without significant loss of accuracy.

    We prove the analogue of the Riemann-Roch formula for the noncommutative two torus Aθ = C(Tθ2)equipped with an arbitrary translation invariant complex structure and a Weyl factor represented by a positive element k ∈C∞(Tθ2). We consider a topologically trivial line bundle equipped with a general holomorphic structure and the corresponding twisted Dolbeault Laplacians. We define a spectral triple (Aθ , H , D) that encodes the twisted Dolbeault complex of Aθ and whose index gives the left hand side of the Riemann-Roch formula. Using Connes' pseudodifferential calculus and heat equation techniques, we explicitly compute the b2 terms of the asymptotic expansion of Tr(e-tD2) . We find that the curvature term on the right hand side of the Riemann-Roch formula coincides with the scalar curvature of the noncommutative torus recently defined and computed in Connes and Moscovici (2014) and independently computed in Fathizadeh and Khalkhali (2014).

    Full Text Available The work of Bernhard Riemann is discussed under the perspective ofpresent day mathematics and physics, and with a prospective view towards thefuture, too. Against the (unfortunately rather widespread trend---which predominantly dominated national scientific societies in Europe during the last Century---of strictly classifying the work ofscientists with the aim to constrain them to separated domains of knowledge,without any possible interaction among those and often evenfighting against each other (and which, no doubt, was in part responsible forthe decline of European in favor of American science, it will be here argued, using Riemann as a model, archetypical example, that good research transcends any classification.Its uses and applications arguably permeate all domains, subjects and disciplines one can possibly define, to the point that it can be considered to be universally useful.After providing a very concise review of the main publications of Bernhard Riemann on physical problems, some connections between Riemann's papers and contemporary physics will be considered:(i the uses of Riemann's work on the zeta function for devising applications to the regularization of quantum field theories in curved space-time, in particular, of quantum vacuum fluctuations;(ii the uses of the Riemann tensor in general relativity and in recentgeneralizations of this theory, which aim at understanding thepresently observed acceleration of the universe expansion (the dark energy issue.Finally, it will be argued that mathematical physics, which was yet not long ago a model paradigm for interdisciplinary activity---and had a very important pioneering role in this sense---is now quicklybeing surpassed by the extraordinarily fruitful interconnections which seem to pop up from nothing every day and simultaneously involve several disciplines, in the classical sense, including genetics, combinatorics, nanoelectronics, biochemistry, medicine, and even ps

For the real case, we show that the imaginary parts of these zeros are the eigenvalues of the Berry-Keating Hamiltonian \\hat{H}_BK=(\\hat{x}\\hat{p}+\\hat{p}\\hat{x})/2 projected onto the subspace of oscillator eigenfunctions of a lower level. This gives a spectral proof of the local Riemann hypothesis for the reals, in the spirit of the Hilbert-Pólya conjecture. The p-adic case is also discussed.

  4. Equidistribution rates, closed string amplitudes, and the Riemann hypothesis

    Science.gov (United States)

    Cacciatori, Sergio L.; Cardella, Matteo

    2010-12-01

    We study asymptotic relations connecting unipotent averages of {text{Sp}}left( {2g,mathbb{Z}} right) automorphic forms to their integrals over the moduli space of principally polarized abelian varieties. We obtain reformulations of the Riemann hypothesis as a class of problems concerning the computation of the equidistribution convergence rate in those asymptotic relations. We discuss applications of our results to closed string amplitudes. Remarkably, the Riemann hypothesis can be rephrased in terms of ultraviolet relations occurring in perturbative closed string theory.

  5. The stable moduli space of Riemann surfaces: Mumford's conjecture

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Madsen, I.; Weiss, Michael

    2007-01-01

    D. Mumford conjectured in "Towards an enumerative geometry of the moduli space of curves" that the rational cohomology of the stable moduli space of Riemann surfaces is a polynomial algebra generated by certain classes $\\kappa_i$ of dimension $2i$. For the purpose of calculating rational cohomology......, one may replace the stable moduli space of Riemann surfaces by $B\\Gamma_{\\infty}$, where $\\Gamma_\\infty$ is the group of isotopy classes of automorphisms of a smooth oriented connected surface of ``large'' genus. Tillmann's theorem that the plus construction makes $B\\Gamma_{\\infty}$ into an infinite...

    Playle, Sam [Dipartimento di Fisica, Università di Torino and INFN, Sezione di Torino,Via P. Giuria 1, I-10125 Torino (Italy)

    2016-12-12

    The (super) Schottky uniformization of compact (super) Riemann surfaces is briefly reviewed. Deformations of super Riemann surface by gravitinos and Beltrami parameters are recast in terms of super Schottky group cohomology. It is checked that the super Schottky group formula for the period matrix of a non-split surface matches its expression in terms of a gravitino and Beltrami parameter on a split surface. The relationship between (super) Schottky groups and the construction of surfaces by gluing pairs of punctures is discussed in an appendix.

  7. Nonclassical degrees of freedom in the Riemann Hamiltonian.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Srednicki, Mark

    2011-09-02

    The Hilbert-Pólya conjecture states that the imaginary parts of the zeros of the Riemann zeta function are eigenvalues of a quantum Hamiltonian. If so, conjectures by Katz and Sarnak put this Hamiltonian in the Altland-Zirnbauer universality class C. This implies that the system must have a nonclassical two-valued degree of freedom. In such a system, the dominant primitive periodic orbits contribute to the density of states with a phase factor of -1. This resolves a previously mysterious sign problem with the oscillatory contributions to the density of the Riemann zeros.

    In this paper, we determine the charge lattice of mutually local Wilson and 't Hooft line operators for class S theories living on M5-branes wrapped on compact Riemann surfaces. The main ingredients of our analysis are the fundamental group of the N-cover of the Riemann surface, and a quantum constraint on the six-dimensional theory. The latter plays a central role in excluding some of the possible lattices and imposing consistency conditions on the charges. This construction gives a geometric explanation for the mutual locality among the lines, fixing their charge lattice and the structure of the four-dimensional gauge group.

    Full Text Available Duality between the space of continuous functions and the space of bounded variations functions can be easily characterized by means of Riemann-Stieltjes integrals when we consider real valued functions defined, e.g., on [0,1]; here we give a self-contained exposition of Riemann-Stieltjes integration theory for functions which assumes values in infinite dimensional vector spaces and we show as the duality between the space of continuous functions and the space of bounded variation functions can be represented by means of such theory.

  10. A Dirac type xp-Model and the Riemann Zeros

    CERN Document Server

    2012-01-01

    We propose a Dirac like modification of the xp-model to a $x \\slashed{p}$ model on a semi-infinite cylinder. This model is inspired on recent work by Sierra et al. on the xp-model on the half-line. Our model realizes the Berry-Keating conjecture on the Riemann zeros. We indicate the connection of our model to that of gapped graphene with a supercritical Coulomb charge, which might provide a physical system for the study of the zeros of the Riemann Zeta function.

    Ducrozet, Guillaume; Engsig-Karup, Allan Peter; Bingham, Harry B.;

    2014-01-01

    This paper deals with the development of an enhanced model for solving wave–wave and wave–structure interaction problems. We describe the application of a non-linear splitting method originally suggested by Di Mascio et al. [1], to the high-order finite difference model developed by Bingham et al....... [2] and extended by Engsig-Karup et al. [3] and [4]. The enhanced strategy is based on splitting all solution variables into incident and scattered fields, where the incident field is assumed to be known and only the scattered field needs to be computed by the numerical model. Although this splitting...

  12. A formulation without partial wave decomposition for scattering of spin-1/2 and spin-0 particles

    CERN Document Server

    Abdulrahman, I

    2010-01-01

    A new technique has been developed to calculate scattering of spin-1/2 and spin-0 particles. The so called momentum-helicity basis states are constructed from the helicity and the momentum states, which are not expanded in the angular momentum states. Thus, all angular momentum states are taken into account. Compared with the partial-wave approach this technique will then give more benefit especially in calculations for higher energies. Taking as input a simple spin-orbit potential, the Lippman-Schwinger equations for the T-matrix elements are solved and some observables are calculated.

  14. Riemann Hypothesis and Random Walks: the Zeta case

    CERN Document Server

    LeClair, André

    2016-01-01

    In previous work it was shown that if certain series based on sums over primes of non-principal Dirichlet characters have a conjectured random walk behavior, then the Euler product formula for its $L$-function is valid to the right of the critical line $\\Re (s) > 1/2$, and the Riemann Hypothesis for this class of $L$-functions follows. Building on this work, here we propose how to extend this line of reasoning to the Riemann zeta function and other principal Dirichlet $L$-functions. We use our results to argue that $ S_\\delta (t) \\equiv \\lim_{\\delta \\to 0^+} \\dfrac{1}{\\pi} \\arg \\zeta (\\tfrac{1}{2}+ \\delta + i t ) = O(1)$, and that it is nearly always on the principal branch. We conjecture that a 1-point correlation function of the Riemann zeros has a normal distribution. This leads to the construction of a probabilistic model for the zeros. Based on these results we describe a new algorithm for computing very high Riemann zeros as a kind of stochastic process, and we calculate the $10^{100}$-th zero to over 1...

  2. Approximate Riemann solvers for the cosmic ray magnetohydrodynamical equations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kudoh, Yuki; Hanawa, Tomoyuki

    2016-11-01

    We analyse the cosmic ray magnetohydrodynamic (CR MHD) equations to improve the numerical simulations. We propose to solve them in the fully conservation form, which is equivalent to the conventional CR MHD equations. In the fully conservation form, the CR energy equation is replaced with the CR `number' conservation, where the CR number density is defined as the three-fourths power of the CR energy density. The former contains an extra source term, while latter does not. An approximate Riemann solver is derived from the CR MHD equations in the fully conservation form. Based on the analysis, we propose a numerical scheme of which solutions satisfy the Rankine-Hugoniot relation at any shock. We demonstrate that it reproduces the Riemann solution derived by Pfrommer et al. for a 1D CR hydrodynamic shock tube problem. We compare the solution with those obtained by solving the CR energy equation. The latter solutions deviate from the Riemann solution seriously, when the CR pressure dominates over the gas pressure in the post-shocked gas. The former solutions converge to the Riemann solution and are of the second-order accuracy in space and time. Our numerical examples include an expansion of high-pressure sphere in a magnetized medium. Fast and slow shocks are sharply resolved in the example. We also discuss possible extension of the CR MHD equations to evaluate the average CR energy.

The Adomian decomposition method is straightforward, applicable for broader problems and avoids the difficulties in applying integral transforms. As the order is 1,the result here is simplified to that of first order differential equation.

  18. Darwin-Riemann Problems in Newtonian Gravity

    CERN Document Server

    Eriguchi, Y; Eriguchi, Yoshiharu; Uryu, Koji

    1999-01-01

    In this paper, we have reviewed the present status of the theory of equilibrium configurations of compact binary star systems in Newtonian gravity. Evolutionary processes of compact binary star systems due to gravitational wave emission can be divided into three stages according to the time scales and configurations. The evolution is quasi-stationary until a merging process starts, since the time scale of the orbital change due to gravitational wave emission is longer than the orbital period. In this stage, equilibrium sequences can be applied to evolution of compact binary star systems. Along the equilibrium sequences, there appear several critical states where some instability sets in or configuration changes drastically. We have discussed relations among these critical points and have stressed the importance of the mass overflow as well as the dynamical instability of orbital motions. Concerning the equilibrium sequences of binary star systems, we have summarized classical results of incompressible ellipso...

  19. The Invar tensor package: Differential invariants of Riemann

    Science.gov (United States)

    Martín-García, J. M.; Yllanes, D.; Portugal, R.

    2008-10-01

    The long standing problem of the relations among the scalar invariants of the Riemann tensor is computationally solved for all 6ṡ10 objects with up to 12 derivatives of the metric. This covers cases ranging from products of up to 6 undifferentiated Riemann tensors to cases with up to 10 covariant derivatives of a single Riemann. We extend our computer algebra system Invar to produce within seconds a canonical form for any of those objects in terms of a basis. The process is as follows: (1) an invariant is converted in real time into a canonical form with respect to the permutation symmetries of the Riemann tensor; (2) Invar reads a database of more than 6ṡ10 relations and applies those coming from the cyclic symmetry of the Riemann tensor; (3) then applies the relations coming from the Bianchi identity, (4) the relations coming from commutations of covariant derivatives, (5) the dimensionally-dependent identities for dimension 4, and finally (6) simplifies invariants that can be expressed as product of dual invariants. Invar runs on top of the tensor computer algebra systems xTensor (for Mathematica) and Canon (for Maple).

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Batakliev Todor

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available Catalytic ozone decomposition is of great significance because ozone is a toxic substance commonly found or generated in human environments (aircraft cabins, offices with photocopiers, laser printers, sterilizers. Considerable work has been done on ozone decomposition reported in the literature. This review provides a comprehensive summary of the literature, concentrating on analysis of the physico-chemical properties, synthesis and catalytic decomposition of ozone. This is supplemented by a review on kinetics and catalyst characterization which ties together the previously reported results. Noble metals and oxides of transition metals have been found to be the most active substances for ozone decomposition. The high price of precious metals stimulated the use of metal oxide catalysts and particularly the catalysts based on manganese oxide. It has been determined that the kinetics of ozone decomposition is of first order importance. A mechanism of the reaction of catalytic ozone decomposition is discussed, based on detailed spectroscopic investigations of the catalytic surface, showing the existence of peroxide and superoxide surface intermediates

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available Short-wave perturbations in a relaxing medium, governed by a special reduction of the Ostrovsky evolution equation, and later derived by Whitham, are studied using the gradient-holonomic integrability algorithm. The bi-Hamiltonicity and complete integrability of the corresponding dynamical system is stated and an infinite hierarchy of commuting to each other conservation laws of dispersive type are found. The well defined regularization of the model is constructed and its Lax type integrability is discussed. A generalized hydrodynamical Riemann type system is considered, infinite hierarchies of conservation laws, related compatible Poisson structures and a Lax type representation for the special case N=3 are constructed.

  2. Exploration and extension of an improved Riemann track fitting algorithm

    Science.gov (United States)

    Strandlie, A.; Frühwirth, R.

    2017-09-01

    Recently, a new Riemann track fit which operates on translated and scaled measurements has been proposed. This study shows that the new Riemann fit is virtually as precise as popular approaches such as the Kalman filter or an iterative non-linear track fitting procedure, and significantly more precise than other, non-iterative circular track fitting approaches over a large range of measurement uncertainties. The fit is then extended in two directions: first, the measurements are allowed to lie on plane sensors of arbitrary orientation; second, the full error propagation from the measurements to the estimated circle parameters is computed. The covariance matrix of the estimated track parameters can therefore be computed without recourse to asymptotic properties, and is consequently valid for any number of observation. It does, however, assume normally distributed measurement errors. The calculations are validated on a simulated track sample and show excellent agreement with the theoretical expectations.

  3. A Riemann-Hilbert approach to rotating attractors

    Science.gov (United States)

    Câmara, M. C.; Cardoso, G. L.; Mohaupt, T.; Nampuri, S.

    2017-06-01

    We construct rotating extremal black hole and attractor solutions in gravity theories by solving a Riemann-Hilbert problem associated with the Breitenlohner-Maison linear system. By employing a vectorial Riemann-Hilbert factorization method we explicitly factorize the corresponding monodromy matrices, which have second order poles in the spectral parameter. In the underrotating case we identify elements of the Geroch group which implement Harrison-type transformations which map the attractor geometries to interpolating rotating black hole solutions. The factorization method we use yields an explicit solution to the linear system, from which we do not only obtain the spacetime solution, but also an explicit expression for the master potential encoding the potentials of the infinitely many conserved currents which make this sector of gravity integrable.

  4. Hamiltonian for the Zeros of the Riemann Zeta Function.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bender, Carl M; Brody, Dorje C; Müller, Markus P

    2017-03-31

    A Hamiltonian operator H[over ^] is constructed with the property that if the eigenfunctions obey a suitable boundary condition, then the associated eigenvalues correspond to the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function. The classical limit of H[over ^] is 2xp, which is consistent with the Berry-Keating conjecture. While H[over ^] is not Hermitian in the conventional sense, iH[over ^] is PT symmetric with a broken PT symmetry, thus allowing for the possibility that all eigenvalues of H[over ^] are real. A heuristic analysis is presented for the construction of the metric operator to define an inner-product space, on which the Hamiltonian is Hermitian. If the analysis presented here can be made rigorous to show that H[over ^] is manifestly self-adjoint, then this implies that the Riemann hypothesis holds true.

  5. Analysis III analytic and differential functions, manifolds and Riemann surfaces

    CERN Document Server

    Godement, Roger

    2015-01-01

    Volume III sets out classical Cauchy theory. It is much more geared towards its innumerable applications than towards a more or less complete theory of analytic functions. Cauchy-type curvilinear integrals are then shown to generalize to any number of real variables (differential forms, Stokes-type formulas). The fundamentals of the theory of manifolds are then presented, mainly to provide the reader with a "canonical'' language and with some important theorems (change of variables in integration, differential equations). A final chapter shows how these theorems can be used to construct the compact Riemann surface of an algebraic function, a subject that is rarely addressed in the general literature though it only requires elementary techniques. Besides the Lebesgue integral, Volume IV will set out a piece of specialized mathematics towards which the entire content of the previous volumes will converge: Jacobi, Riemann, Dedekind series and infinite products, elliptic functions, classical theory of modular fun...

  6. Poisson Sigma Model with branes and hyperelliptic Riemann surfaces

    CERN Document Server

    Ferrario, Andrea

    2007-01-01

    We derive the explicit form of the superpropagators in presence of general boundary conditions (coisotropic branes) for the Poisson Sigma Model. This generalizes the results presented in Cattaneo and Felder's previous works for the Kontsevich angle function used in the deformation quantization program of Poisson manifolds without branes or with at most two branes. The relevant superpropagators for n branes are defined as gauge fixed homotopy operators of a complex of differential forms on n sided polygons P_n with particular "alternating" boundary conditions. In presence of more than three branes we use first order Riemann theta functions with odd singular characteristics on the Jacobian variety of a hyperelliptic Riemann surface (canonical setting). In genus g the superpropagators present g zero modes contributions.

    The existence of singularities of the solution for a class of Lax equations is investigated using a development of the factorization method first proposed by Semenov-Tyan-Shanskii (Funct Anal Appl 17(4):259-272, 1983) and Reymann and Semenov-Tian-Shansky (1994). It is shown that the existence of a singularity at a point t = t{sub i} is directly related to the property that the kernel of a certain Toeplitz operator (whose symbol depends on t) be non-trivial. The investigation of this question involves the factorization on a Riemann surface of a scalar function closely related to the above-mentioned operator. Two examples are presented which show different aspects of the problem of computing the set of singularities of the solution to the system considered. The relation between the Riemann surfaces of the classical and Lax formulation is also considered.

    The local Riemann hypothesis states that the zeros of the Mellin transform of a harmonic-oscillator eigenfunction (on a real or p-adic configuration space) have a real part 1/2. For the real case, we show that the imaginary parts of these zeros are the eigenvalues of the Berry-Keating Hamiltonian H-hat {sub BK}=( x-hat p-hat + p-hat x-hat )/2 projected onto the subspace of oscillator eigenfunctions of a lower level. This gives a spectral proof of the local Riemann hypothesis for the reals, in the spirit of the Hilbert-Polya conjecture. The p-adic case is also discussed.

    2016-01-01

    In this article we study odd deformations of an $\\mathcal N =1$ super Riemann surface. We begin with odd, infinitesimal deformations with the objective being to describe the Kodaira-Spencer map for them and explore the consequences of the vanishing thereof. Our intent is to relate the deformation theory of a super Riemann surface with the obstruction theory of the deformation (itself to be thought of as a complex supermanifold). Illustrations are provided in low genus. Subsequently, we investigate deformations of higher order with a view to further understand this relation between obstruction theory and deformation theory. By way of motivation, a detailed study of odd, second order deformations is presented, leading naturally to a question on the characterisation odd deformations of any order.

  10. Pseudo-periodic maps and degeneration of Riemann surfaces

    CERN Document Server

    Matsumoto, Yukio

    2011-01-01

    The first part of the book studies pseudo-periodic maps of a closed surface of genus greater than or equal to two. This class of homeomorphisms was originally introduced by J. Nielsen in 1944 as an extension of periodic maps. In this book, the conjugacy classes of the (chiral) pseudo-periodic mapping classes are completely classified, and Nielsen’s incomplete classification is corrected. The second part applies the results of the first part to the topology of degeneration of Riemann surfaces. It is shown that the set of topological types of all the singular fibers appearing in one-parameter holomorphic families of Riemann surfaces is in a bijective correspondence with the set of conjugacy classes of the pseudo-periodic maps of negative twists. The correspondence is given by the topological monodromy.

  11. Classification and modeling of human activities using empirical mode decomposition with S-band and millimeter-wave micro-Doppler radars

    Fairchild, Dustin P.; Narayanan, Ram M.

    2012-06-01

    The ability to identify human movements can be an important tool in many different applications such as surveillance, military combat situations, search and rescue operations, and patient monitoring in hospitals. This information can provide soldiers, security personnel, and search and rescue workers with critical knowledge that can be used to potentially save lives and/or avoid a dangerous situation. Most research involving human activity recognition is focused on using the Short-Time Fourier Transform (STFT) as a method of analyzing the micro-Doppler signatures. Because of the time-frequency resolution limitations of the STFT and because Fourier transform-based methods are not well-suited for use with non-stationary and nonlinear signals, we have chosen a different approach. Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) has been shown to be a valuable time-frequency method for processing non-stationary and nonlinear data such as micro-Doppler signatures and EMD readily provides a feature vector that can be utilized for classification. For classification, the method of a Support Vector Machine (SVMs) was chosen. SVMs have been widely used as a method of pattern recognition due to their ability to generalize well and also because of their moderately simple implementation. In this paper, we discuss the ability of these methods to accurately identify human movements based on their micro-Doppler signatures obtained from S-band and millimeter-wave radar systems. Comparisons will also be made based on experimental results from each of these radar systems. Furthermore, we will present simulations of micro-Doppler movements for stationary subjects that will enable us to compare our experimental Doppler data to what we would expect from an "ideal" movement.

  12. On Equalities Involving Integrals of the Logarithm of the Riemann ς-Function with Exponential Weight Which Are Equivalent to the Riemann Hypothesis

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Integral equalities involving integrals of the logarithm of the Riemann ς-function with exponential weight functions are introduced, and it is shown that an infinite number of them are equivalent to the Riemann hypothesis. Some of these equalities are tested numerically. The possible contribution of the Riemann function zeroes nonlying on the critical line is rigorously estimated and shown to be extremely small, in particular, smaller than nine milliards of decimals for the maximal possible weight function exp(−2πt. We also show how certain Fourier transforms of the logarithm of the Riemann zeta-function taken along the real (demiaxis are expressible via elementary functions plus logarithm of the gamma-function and definite integrals thereof, as well as certain sums over trivial and nontrivial Riemann function zeroes.

    The aims of this paper are threefold: to increase the level of awareness within the shock capturing community to the fact that many Godunov-type methods contain subtle flaws that can cause spurious solutions to be computed; to identify one mechanism that might thwart attempts to produce very high resolution simulations; and to proffer a simple strategy for overcoming the specific failings of individual Riemann solvers.

    In this present work we consider a fractional Langevin equation with Riemann-Liouville fractional time derivative which modifies the classical Newtonian force, nonlocal dissipative force, and long-time correlation. We investigate the first two moments, variances and position and velocity correlation functions of this system. We also compare them with the results obtained from the same fractional Langevin equation which uses the Caputo fractional derivative.

    Two types of oscillator processes can be obtained as solutions to fractional Langevin equation based on Riemann-Liouville and Weyl fractional integro-differential operators. The relation between these fractional oscillator processes and the corresponding fractional Brownian motion is considered. Generalization of the Weyl fractional oscillator process to positive temperature can be carried out and its partition function can be calculated using the zeta function regularization method.

  16. Zeta regularized products, Riemann zeta zeros and prime number spectra

    CERN Document Server

    Menezes, G; Svaiter, N F

    2013-01-01

    The Riemann hypothesis states that all nontrivial zeros of the zeta function lie in the critical line $\\Re(s)=1/2$. Hilbert and P\\'olya suggested that one possible way to prove the Riemann hypothesis is to interpret the nontrivial zeros in the light of spectral theory. Following this approach, we associate such a numerical sequence with the discrete spectrum of a linear differential operator. We discuss a necessary condition that such a sequence of numbers should obey in order to be associated with the spectrum of a linear differential operator of a system with countably infinite number of degrees of freedom. The sequence of nontrivial zeros is zeta regularizable. Then, functional integrals associated with hypothetical systems described by self-adjoint operators whose spectra is given by the sequence of the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function could be constructed. In addition, we demonstrate that if one considers the same situation with primes numbers, the associated functional integral cannot be co...

  17. An electrostatic depiction of the validity of the Riemann Hypothesis

    CERN Document Server

    LeClair, Andre

    2013-01-01

    We construct a vector field E from the real and imaginary parts of an entire function xi (z) which arises in the quantum statistical mechanics of relativistic gases when the spatial dimension d is analytically continued into the complex z plane. This function is built from the Gamma and Riemann zeta functions and is known to satisfy the functional identity xi (z) = xi (1-z). We describe how this non-trivial identity can be demonstrated using quantum field theory arguments in a cylindrical geometry, where it relates finite temperature black body physics to the Casimir energy on a circle. The vector field E satisfies the conditions for a static electric field. The structure of this "electric field" in the critical strip is determined by its behavior near the Riemann zeros on the critical line Re (z) = 1/2, where each zero can be assigned a plus or minus vorticity of a related pseudo-magnetic field. Using these properties, we show that a hypothetical Riemann zero that is off the critical line leads to a frustrat...

  18. Approximate Riemann Solvers for the Cosmic Ray Magnetohydrodynamical Equations

    CERN Document Server

    Kudoh, Yuki

    2016-01-01

    We analyze the cosmic-ray magnetohydrodynamic (CR MHD) equations to improve the numerical simulations. We propose to solve them in the fully conservation form, which is equivalent to the conventional CR MHD equations. In the fully conservation form, the CR energy equation is replaced with the CR "number" conservation, where the CR number density is defined as the three fourths power of the CR energy density. The former contains an extra source term, while latter does not. An approximate Riemann solver is derived from the CR MHD equations in the fully conservation form. Based on the analysis, we propose a numerical scheme of which solutions satisfy the Rankine-Hugoniot relation at any shock. We demonstrate that it reproduces the Riemann solution derived by Pfrommer et al. (2006) for a 1D CR hydrodynamic shock tube problem. We compare the solution with those obtained by solving the CR energy equation. The latter solutions deviate from the Riemann solution seriously, when the CR pressure dominates over the gas p...

    2007-06-01

    Full Text Available We study Riemann-Roch expected curves on $mathbb{P}^1 imes mathbb{P}^1$ in the context of the Nagata-Biran conjecture. This conjecture predicts that for sufficiently large number of points multiple points Seshadri constants of an ample line bundle on algebraic surface are maximal. Biran gives an effective lower bound $N_0$. We construct examples verifying to the effect that the assertions of the Nagata-Biran conjecture can not hold for small number of points. We discuss cases where our construction fails. We observe also that there exists a strong relation between Riemann-Roch expected curves on $mathbb{P}^1 imes mathbb{P}^1$ and the symplectic packing problem. Biran relates the packing problem to the existence of solutions of certain Diophantine equations. We construct such solutions for any ample line bundle on $mathbb{P}^1 imes mathbb{P}^1$ and a relatively smallnumber of points. The solutions geometrically correspond to Riemann-Roch expected curves. Finally we discuss in how far the Biran number $N_0$ is optimal in the case of mathbb{P}^1 imes mathbb{P}^1. In fact we conjecture that it can be replaced by a lower number and we provide evidence justifying this conjecture.

  20. On Riemann Solvers and Kinetic Relations for Isothermal Two-Phase Flows with Surface Tension

    CERN Document Server

    Rohde, Christian

    2016-01-01

    We consider a sharp-interface approach for the inviscid isothermal dynamics of compressible two-phase flow, that accounts for phase transition and surface tension effects. To fix the mass exchange and entropy dissipation rate across the interface kinetic relations are frequently used. The complete uni-directional dynamics can then be understood by solving generalized two-phase Riemann problems. We present new well-posedness theorems for the Riemann problem and corresponding computable Riemann solvers, that cover quite general equations of state, metastable input data and curvature effects. The new Riemann solver is used to validate different kinetic relations on physically relevant problems including a comparison with experimental data. Riemann solvers are building blocks for many numerical schemes that are used to track interfaces in two-phase flow. It is shown that the new Riemann solver enables reliable and efficient computations for physical situations that could not be treated before.

    SU(2) flat connection on 2D Riemann surface is shown to relate to the generalized twisted geometry in 3D space with cosmological constant. Various flat connection quantities on Riemann surface are mapped to the geometrical quantities in discrete 3D space. We propose that the moduli space of SU(2) flat connections on Riemann surface generalizes the phase space of twisted geometry or Loop Quantum Gravity to include the cosmological constant.

    In this paper we introduce the Dirac and spin-Dirac operators associated to a connection on Riemann-Cartan space(time) and standard Dirac and spin-Dirac operators associated with a Levi-Civita connection on a Riemannian (Lorentzian) space(time) and calculate the squares of these operators, which play an important role in several topics of modern mathematics, in particular in the study of the geometry of moduli spaces of a class of black holes, the geometry of NS-5 brane solutions of type II supergravity theories and BPS solitons in some string theories. We obtain a generalized Lichnerowicz formula, decompositions of the Dirac and spin-Dirac operators and their squares in terms of the standard Dirac and spin-Dirac operators and using the fact that spinor fields (sections of a spin-Clifford bundle) have representatives in the Clifford bundle we present also a noticeable relation involving the spin-Dirac and the Dirac operators.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available The Riemann problem of one-dimensional arbitrary discontinuity breakdown for parameters of unsteady gas flow is considered as applied to the design of Godunov-type numerical methods. The problem is solved in exact and approximate statements (Osher-Solomon difference scheme used in shock capturing numerical methods: the intensities (the ratio of static pressures and flow velocities on the sides of the resulting breakdowns and waves are determined, and then the other parameters are calculated in all regions of the flow. Comparison of calculation results for model flows by exact and approximate solutions is performed. The concept of velocity function is introduced. The dependence of the velocity function on the breakdown intensity is investigated. A special intensity at which isentropic wave creates the same flow rate as the shock wave is discovered. In the vicinity of this singular intensity approximate methods provide the highest accuracy. The domain of applicability for the approximate Osher-Solomon solution is defined by performing test calculations. The results are presented in a form suitable for usage in the numerical methods. The results obtained can be used in the high-resolution numerical methods.

  6. Finding zeros of the Riemann zeta function by periodic driving of cold atoms

    Science.gov (United States)

    Creffield, C. E.; Sierra, G.

    2015-06-01

    The Riemann hypothesis, which states that the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function all lie on a certain line in the complex plane, is one of the most important unresolved problems in mathematics. We propose here an approach to finding a physical system to study the Riemann zeros, which is based on applying a time-periodic driving field. This driving allows us to tune the quasienergies of the system (the analog of the eigenenergies for static systems), so that they are directly governed by the zeta function. We further show by numerical simulations that this allows the Riemann zeros to be measured in currently accessible cold-atom experiments.

  8. A simple two-dimensional extension of the HLL Riemann solver for hyperbolic systems of conservation laws

    Science.gov (United States)

    Vides, Jeaniffer; Nkonga, Boniface; Audit, Edouard

    2015-01-01

    We derive a simple method to numerically approximate the solution of the two-dimensional Riemann problem for gas dynamics, using the literal extension of the well-known HLL formalism as its basis. Essentially, any strategy attempting to extend the three-state HLL Riemann solver to multiple space dimensions will by some means involve a piecewise constant approximation of the complex two-dimensional interaction of waves, and our numerical scheme is not the exception. In order to determine closed form expressions for the involved fluxes, we rely on the equivalence between the consistency condition and the use of Rankine-Hugoniot conditions that hold across the outermost waves. The proposed scheme is carefully designed to simplify its eventual numerical implementation and its advantages are analytically attested. In addition, we show that the proposed solver can be applied to obtain the edge-centered electric fields needed in the constrained transport technique for the ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations. We present several numerical results for hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics that display the scheme's accuracy and its ability to be applied to various systems of conservation laws.

    2016-01-01

    In this paper a new, simple and universal formulation of the HLLEM Riemann solver (RS) is proposed that works for general conservative and non-conservative systems of hyperbolic equations. For non-conservative PDE, a path-conservative formulation of the HLLEM RS is presented for the first time in this paper. The HLLEM Riemann solver is built on top of a novel and very robust path-conservative HLL method. It thus naturally inherits the positivity properties and the entropy enforcement of the underlying HLL scheme. However, with just the slight additional cost of evaluating eigenvectors and eigenvalues of intermediate characteristic fields, we can represent linearly degenerate intermediate waves with a minimum of smearing. For conservative systems, our paper provides the easiest and most seamless path for taking a pre-existing HLL RS and quickly and effortlessly converting it to a RS that provides improved results, comparable with those of an HLLC, HLLD, Osher or Roe-type RS. This is done with minimal additional computational complexity, making our variant of the HLLEM RS also a very fast RS that can accurately represent linearly degenerate discontinuities. Our present HLLEM RS also transparently extends these advantages to non-conservative systems. For shallow water-type systems, the resulting method is proven to be well-balanced. Several test problems are presented for shallow water-type equations and two-phase flow models, as well as for gas dynamics with real equation of state, magnetohydrodynamics (MHD & RMHD), and nonlinear elasticity. Since our new formulation accommodates multiple intermediate waves and has a broader applicability than the original HLLEM method, it could alternatively be called the HLLI Riemann solver, where the “I” stands for the intermediate characteristic fields that can be accounted for. -- Highlights: •New simple and general path-conservative formulation of the HLLEM Riemann solver. •Application to general conservative and non

    2011-01-01

    We discuss the application of the determinantal method to the proof of the Riemann hypothesis. We start from the fact that, if a certain doubly infinite set of determinants are all positive, then the hypothesis is true. This approach extends the work of Csordas, Norfolk and Varga in 1986, and makes extensive use of the results described by Karlin. We have discovered and proved or conjectured relations in five areas of the problem, as summarized in the Introduction. Further effort could well lead to more progress.

    The period polynomial r(f)(z) for an even weight k≥4 newform f∈S(k)(Γ(0)((N)) is the generating function for the critical values of L(f,s) . It has a functional equation relating r(f)(z) to r(f)(-1/Nz). We prove the Riemann hypothesis for these polynomials: that the zeros of r(f)(z) lie on the circle |z|=1/√N . We prove that these zeros are equidistributed when either k or N is large.

    This paper focuses on the connection of holomorphic two-dimensional factorization algebras and vertex algebras which has been made precise in the forthcoming book of Costello-Gwilliam. We provide a construction of the Virasoro vertex algebra starting from a local Lie algebra on the complex plane. Moreover, we discuss an extension of this factorization algebra to a factorization algebra on the category of Riemann surfaces. The factorization homology of this factorization algebra is computed as the correlation functions. We provide an example of how the Virasoro factorization algebra implements conformal symmetry of the beta-gamma system using the method of effective BV quantization.

    CERN Document Server

    2010-01-01

    We deal with initial-boundary value problems for systems of conservation laws in one space dimension and we focus on the boundary Riemann problem. It is known that, in general, different viscous approximations provide different limits. In this paper, we establish sufficient conditions to conclude that two different approximations lead to the same limit. As an application of this result, we show that, under reasonable assumptions, the self-similar second-order approximation and the classical viscous approximation provide the same limit. Our analysis applies to both the characteristic and the non characteristic case. We require neither genuine nonlinearity nor linear degeneracy of the characteristic fields.

    We consider a smooth groupoid of the form Σ⋊Γ, where Σ is a Riemann surface and Γ a discrete pseudogroup acting on Σ by local conformal diffeomorphisms. After defining a K-cycle on the crossed product C0(Σ)⋊Γ generalising the classical Dolbeault complex, we compute its Chern character in cyclic cohomology, using the index theorem of Connes and Moscovici. This involves in particular a generalisation of the Euler class constructed from the modular automorphism group of the von Neumann algebra L∞(Σ)⋊Γ.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2011-01-01

    With an extended Langmuir isotherm, a Riemann problem for one-dimensional binary gas enhanced coalbed methane (ECBM) process is investigated. A new analytical solution to the Riemann problem, based on the method of characteristics, is developed by introducing a gas selectivity ratio representing the gas relative sorption affinity. The influence of gas selectivity ratio on the enhanced coalbed methane processes is identified.

    It is shown how the theory of classical $W$--algebras can be formulated on a higher genus Riemann surface in the spirit of Krichever and Novikov. An intriguing relation between the theory of $A_1$ embeddings into simple Lie algebras and the holomorphic geometry of Riemann surfaces is exihibited.

    An elementary approach for computing the values at negative integers of the Riemann zeta function is presented. The approach is based on a new method for ordering the integers. We show that the values of the Riemann zeta function can be computed, without using the theory of analytic continuation and any knowledge of functions of complex variable.

    2016-01-01

    The scattering equations give striking formulae for massless scattering amplitudes at tree level and, as shown recently, at one loop. The progress at loop level was based on ambitwistor string theory, which naturally yields the scattering equations. We proposed that, for ambitwistor strings, the standard loop expansion in terms of the genus of the worldsheet is equivalent to an expansion in terms of nodes of a Riemann sphere, with the nodes carrying the loop momenta. In this paper, we show how to obtain two-loop scattering equations with the correct factorization properties. We adapt genus-two integrands from the ambitwistor string to the nodal Riemann sphere and show that these yield correct answers, by matching standard results for the four-point two-loop amplitudes of maximal supergravity and super-Yang-Mills theory. In the Yang-Mills case, this requires the loop analogue of the Parke-Taylor factor carrying the colour dependence, which includes non-planar contributions.

    2016-01-01

    The scattering equations provide a powerful framework for the study of scattering amplitudes in a variety of theories. Their derivation from ambitwistor string theory led to proposals for formulae at one loop on a torus for 10 dimensional supergravity, and we recently showed how these can be reduced to the Riemann sphere and checked in simple cases. We also proposed analogous formulae for other theories including maximal super-Yang-Mills theory and supergravity in other dimensions at one loop. We give further details of these results and extend them in two directions. Firstly, we propose new formulae for the one-loop integrands of Yang-Mills theory and gravity in the absence of supersymmetry. These follow from the identification of the states running in the loop as expressed in the ambitwistor-string correlator. Secondly, we give a systematic proof of the non-supersymmetric formulae using the worldsheet factorisation properties of the nodal Riemann sphere underlying the scattering equations at one loop. Our f...

  10. Fractal supersymmetric QM, Geometric Probability and the Riemann Hypothesis

    CERN Document Server

    Castro, C

    2004-01-01

    The Riemann's hypothesis (RH) states that the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta-function are of the form $ s_n =1/2+i\\lambda_n $. Earlier work on the RH based on supersymmetric QM, whose potential was related to the Gauss-Jacobi theta series, allows to provide the proper framework to construct the well defined algorithm to compute the probability to find a zero (an infinity of zeros) in the critical line. Geometric probability theory furnishes the answer to the very difficult question whether the probability that the RH is true is indeed equal to unity or not. To test the validity of this geometric probabilistic framework to compute the probability if the RH is true, we apply it directly to the the hyperbolic sine function $ \\sinh (s) $ case which obeys a trivial analog of the RH (the HSRH). Its zeros are equally spaced in the imaginary axis $ s_n = 0 + i n \\pi $. The geometric probability to find a zero (and an infinity of zeros) in the imaginary axis is exactly unity. We proceed with a fractal supersymme...

This enables a numerical description of both trapped air pockets and the propagation of pressure shock waves through the aerated water. An exact Riemann solver is developed to permit a finite-volume solution to the flow model with smallest possible...... local error. The high pressures measured during wave impacts on a breakwater are reproduced and it is shown that trapped air can be compressed to a pressure of several atmospheres. Pressure shock waves, reflected off nearby surfaces such as the seabed, can lead to pressures comparable with those...

  12. Generalised Cesaro Convergence, Root Identities and the Riemann Hypothesis

    CERN Document Server

    Stone, Richard

    2011-01-01

    We extend the notion of generalised Cesaro summation/convergence developed previously to the more natural setting of what we call "remainder" Cesaro summation/convergence and, after illustrating the utility of this approach in deriving certain classical results, use it to develop a notion of generalised root identities. These extend elementary root identities for polynomials both to more general functions and to a family of identities parametrised by a complex parameter \\mu. In so doing they equate one expression (the derivative side) which is defined via Fourier theory, with another (the root side) which is defined via remainder Cesaro summation. For \\mu a non-positive integer these identities are naturally adapted to investigating the asymptotic behaviour of the given function and the geometric distribution of its roots. For the Gamma function we show that it satisfies the generalised root identities and use them to constructively deduce Stirling's theorem. For the Riemann zeta function the implications of ...

  13. Period Matrices of Real Riemann Surfaces and Fundamental Domains

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pietro Giavedoni

    2013-10-01

    Full Text Available For some positive integers g and n we consider a subgroup G_{g,n} of the 2g-dimensional modular group keeping invariant a certain locus W_{g,n} in the Siegel upper half plane of degree g. We address the problem of describing a fundamental domain for the modular action of the subgroup on W_{g,n}. Our motivation comes from geometry: g and n represent the genus and the number of ovals of a generic real Riemann surface of separated type; the locus W_{g,n} contains the corresponding period matrix computed with respect to some specific basis in the homology. In this paper we formulate a general procedure to solve the problem when g is even and n equals one. For g equal to two or four the explicit calculations are worked out in full detail.

  14. Simple realization of inflaton potential on a Riemann surface

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-11-01

    Full Text Available The observation of the B-mode in the cosmic microwave background radiation combined with the so-called Lyth bound suggests the trans-Planckian variation of the inflaton field during inflation. Such a large variation generates concerns over inflation models in terms of the effective field theory below the Planck scale. If the inflaton resides in a Riemann surface and the inflaton potential is a multivalued function of the inflaton field when it is viewed as a function on a complex plane, the Lyth bound can be satisfied while keeping field values in the effective field theory within the Planck scale. We show that a multivalued inflaton potential can be realized starting from a single-valued Lagrangian of the effective field theory below the Planck scale.

    Adamo, Tim; Monteiro, Ricardo; Paulos, Miguel F.

    2017-08-01

    We consider two-dimensional chiral, first-order conformal field theories governing maps from the Riemann sphere to the projective light cone inside Minkowski space — the natural setting for describing conformal field theories in two fewer dimensions. These theories have a SL(2) algebra of local bosonic constraints which can be supplemented by additional fermionic constraints depending on the matter content of the theory. By computing the BRST charge associated with gauge fixing these constraints, we find anomalies which vanish for specific target space dimensions. These critical dimensions coincide precisely with those for which (biadjoint) cubic scalar theory, gauge theory and gravity are classically conformally invariant. Furthermore, the BRST cohomology of each theory contains vertex operators for the full conformal multiplets of single field insertions in each of these space-time CFTs. We give a prescription for the computation of three-point functions, and compare our formalism with the scattering equations approach to on-shell amplitudes.

  16. Non-Abelian Vortices on Riemann Surfaces: an Integrable Case

    CERN Document Server

    Popov, Alexander D

    2008-01-01

    We consider U(n+1) Yang-Mills instantons on the space \\Sigma\\times S^2, where \\Sigma is a compact Riemann surface of genus g. Using an SU(2)-equivariant dimensional reduction, we show that the U(n+1) instanton equations on \\Sigma\\times S^2 are equivalent to non-Abelian vortex equations on \\Sigma. Solutions to these equations are given by pairs (A,\\phi), where A is a gauge potential of the group U(n) and \\phi is a Higgs field in the fundamental representation of the group U(n). We briefly compare this model with other non-Abelian Higgs models considered recently. Afterwards we show that for g>1, when \\Sigma\\times S^2 becomes a gravitational instanton, the non-Abelian vortex equations are the compatibility conditions of two linear equations (Lax pair) and therefore the standard methods of integrable systems can be applied for constructing their solutions.

    2014-02-01

    One of the most famous problems in mathematics is the Riemann hypothesis: that the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function lie on a line in the complex plane. One way to prove the hypothesis would be to identify the zeros as eigenvalues of a Hermitian operator, many of whose properties can be derived through the analogy to quantum chaos. Using this, we construct a set of quantum graphs that have the same oscillating part of the density of states as the Riemann zeros, offering an explanation of the overall minus sign. The smooth part is completely different, and hence also the spectrum, but the graphs pick out the low-lying zeros.

    The moduli space of Riemann surfaces with at least two punctures can be decomposed into a cell complex by using a particular family of ribbon graphs called Nakamura graphs. We distinguish the moduli space with all punctures labelled from that with a single labelled puncture. In both cases, we describe a cell decomposition where the cells are parametrised by graphs or equivalence classes of finite sequences (tuples) of permutations. Each cell is a convex polytope defined by a system of linear equations and inequalities relating light-cone string parameters, quotiented by the automorphism group of the graph. We give explicit examples of the cell decomposition at low genus with few punctures.

This generalization makes it possible to efficiently include multiple scattering effects in the estimation procedure. We also show that the Riemann fit can be formulated in an alternative way through a mapping to a paraboloid. This yields results equivalent to the standard formulation, but with the added advantage that measurements with errors both in RPhi as well as in the radial direction can be handled in a straightforward manner.

    Let ℎ be a complete metric of Gaussian curvature 0 on a punctured Riemann surface of genus ≥ 1 (or the sphere with at least three punctures). Given a smooth negative function with =0 in neighbourhoods of the punctures we prove that there exists a metric conformal to ℎ which attains this function as its Gaussian curvature for the punctured Riemann surface. We do so by minimizing an appropriate functional using elementary analysis.

  11. Nonholonomic mapping theory of autoparallel motions in Riemann-Cartan space

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    The method of nonholonomic mapping is utilized to construct a Riemann-Cartan space embedded into a known Riemann-Cartan space,which includes two special cases that a Weitzenbck space and a Riemann-Cartan space are respectively embedded into a Euclidean space and a Riemann space.By means of this mapping theory,the nonholonomic corresponding relation between the autoparallels of two Riemman-Cartan spaces is investigated.In particular,an autoparallel in a Riemann-Cartan space can be mapped into a geodesic line in a Riemann space and an autoparallel in Weitzenbck space be mapped into a geodesic line in Euclidean space.Based on the Lagrange-d’Alembert principle,the equations of motion for dynamical systems in Riemman-Cartan space should be autoparallel equations of the space.As applications,the problem of autoparallel motion of spinless particles,Chaplygin’s nonholonomic systems and a rigid body rotating with a fixed point are investigated in space with torsion.

    We develop the inverse scattering transform method for the Novikov equation u_t-u_{txx}+4u^2u_x=3u u_xu_{xx}+u^2u_{xxx} considered on the line xin(-∞,∞) in the case of non-zero constant background. The approach is based on the analysis of an associated Riemann-Hilbert (RH) problem, which in this case is a 3× 3 matrix problem. The structure of this RH problem shares many common features with the case of the Degasperis-Procesi (DP) equation having quadratic nonlinear terms (see [Boutet de Monvel A., Shepelsky D., Nonlinearity 26 (2013), 2081-2107, arXiv:1107.5995]) and thus the Novikov equation can be viewed as a ''modified DP equation'', in analogy with the relationship between the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation and the modified Korteweg-de Vries (mKdV) equation. We present parametric formulas giving the solution of the Cauchy problem for the Novikov equation in terms of the solution of the RH problem and discuss the possibilities to use the developed formalism for further studying of the Novikov equation.

  14. Can one hear the Riemann zeros in black hole ringing?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Aros, Rodrigo; Bugini, Fabrizzio; Diaz, Danilo E.

    2016-05-01

    We elaborate on an entry of the AdS/CFT dictionary relating functional determinants: the determinant of the one-loop contribution to the effective gravitational action by bulk scalars in an asymptotically locally AdS background X, and the determinant of the two-point function of the dual operator (a.k.a. scattering matrix) at the conformal boundary M. The formula originates from AdS/CFT heuristics that map a quantum contribution in the bulk gravitational partition function to a subleading large-N contribution in the boundary CFT partition function: The formula applies to quotients of AdS as well [1]. In the particular case of the BTZ black hole, a closed expression can be worked out in terms of an associated Patterson-Selberg zeta function ZBTZ (λ) [2]. The determinants can then be thought of as regularized products of either zeta zeros, scattering resonances or quasinormal frequencies [3]. In this sense, one could say that the zeros of ZBTZ (λ) can be heard in the spectrum of quasinormal modes of the BTZ black hole. The question we want to pose is whether a similar situation might exist for the celebrated zeros of the Riemann zeta function.

    A fat graph description is given for Teichmueller spaces of Riemann surfaces with holes and with Z{sub 2}- and Z{sub 3}-orbifold points (conical singularities) in the Poincare uniformization. The corresponding mapping class group transformations are presented, geodesic functions are constructed, and the Poisson structure is introduced. The resulting Poisson algebras are then quantized. In the particular cases of surfaces with n Z{sub 2}-orbifold points and with one and two holes, the respective algebras A{sub n} and D{sub n} of geodesic functions (classical and quantum) are obtained. The infinite-dimensional Poisson algebra D{sub n}, which is the semiclassical limit of the twisted q-Yangian algebra Y'{sub q}(o{sub n}) for the orthogonal Lie algebra o{sub n}, is associated with the algebra of geodesic functions on an annulus with n Z{sub 2}-orbifold points, and the braid group action on this algebra is found. From this result the braid group actions are constructed on the finite-dimensional reductions of this algebra: the p-level reduction and the algebra D{sub n}. The central elements for these reductions are found. Also, the algebra D{sub n} is interpreted as the Poisson algebra of monodromy data of a Frobenius manifold in the vicinity of a non-semisimple point. Bibliography: 36 titles.

    source can be represented by discontinuities in the metric tensor components. The first two chapters of this book are devoted to some basic ideas: in the introductory chapter 1 the authors discuss the concept of integrability, comparing the integrability of the vacuum Ernst equation with the integrability of nonlinear equations of Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) type, while in chapter 2 they describe various circumstances in which the vacuum Ernst equation has been determined to be relevant, not only in connection with gravitation but also, for example, in the construction of solutions of the self-dual Yang-Mills equations. It is also in this chapter that one of several equivalent linear systems for the Ernst equation is described. The next two chapters are devoted to Dmitry Korotkin's concept of algebro-geometric solutions of a linear system: in chapter 3 the structure of such solutions of the vacuum Ernst equation, which involve Riemann theta functions of hyperelliptic algebraic curves of any genus, is contrasted with the periodic structure of such solutions of the KdV equation. How such solutions can be obtained, for example, by solving a matrix Riemann-Hilbert problem and how the metric tensor of the associated spacetime can be evaluated is described in detail. In chapter 4 the asymptotic behaviour and the similarity structure of the general algebro-geometric solutions of the Ernst equation are described, and the relationship of such solutions to the perhaps more familiar multi-soliton solutions is discussed. The next three chapters are based upon the authors' own published research: in chapter 5 it is shown that a problem involving counter-rotating infinitely thin disks of matter can be solved in terms of genus two Riemann theta functions, while in chapter 6 the authors describe numerical methods that facilitate the construction of such solutions, and in chapter 7 three-dimensional graphs are displayed that depict all metrical fields of the associated spacetime

    The Coulomb gas representation of the A{sub n} series of c=1-6/(m(m+1)), m{ge}3, minimal models is extended to compact Riemann surfaces of genus g>1. An integral representation of the partition functions, for any m and g is obtained as the difference of two gaussian correlation functions of a background charge, (background charge on sphere) x (1-g), and screening charges integrated over the surface. The coupling constant x (compacitification radius){sup 2} of the gaussian expressions are, as on the torus, m(m+1), and m/(m+1). The partition functions obtained are modular invariant, have the correct conformal anomaly and - restricting the propagation of states to a single handle - one can verify explicitly the decoupling of the null states. On the other hand, they are given in terms of coupled surface integrals, and it remains to show how they degenerate consistently to those on lower-genus surfaces. In this work, this is clear only at the lattice level, where no screening charges appear. (orig.).

We conclude with a third equivalent formulation which resembles a "causality" statement.

    Bui-Thanh, T.; Girolami, M.

    2014-11-01

    We consider the Riemann manifold Hamiltonian Monte Carlo (RMHMC) method for solving statistical inverse problems governed by partial differential equations (PDEs). The Bayesian framework is employed to cast the inverse problem into the task of statistical inference whose solution is the posterior distribution in infinite dimensional parameter space conditional upon observation data and Gaussian prior measure. We discretize both the likelihood and the prior using the H1-conforming finite element method together with a matrix transfer technique. The power of the RMHMC method is that it exploits the geometric structure induced by the PDE constraints of the underlying inverse problem. Consequently, each RMHMC posterior sample is almost uncorrelated/independent from the others providing statistically efficient Markov chain simulation. However this statistical efficiency comes at a computational cost. This motivates us to consider computationally more efficient strategies for RMHMC. At the heart of our construction is the fact that for Gaussian error structures the Fisher information matrix coincides with the Gauss-Newton Hessian. We exploit this fact in considering a computationally simplified RMHMC method combining state-of-the-art adjoint techniques and the superiority of the RMHMC method. Specifically, we first form the Gauss-Newton Hessian at the maximum a posteriori point and then use it as a fixed constant metric tensor throughout RMHMC simulation. This eliminates the need for the computationally costly differential geometric Christoffel symbols, which in turn greatly reduces computational effort at a corresponding loss of sampling efficiency. We further reduce the cost of forming the Fisher information matrix by using a low rank approximation via a randomized singular value decomposition technique. This is efficient since a small number of Hessian-vector products are required. The Hessian-vector product in turn requires only two extra PDE solves using the adjoint

    Giglio, J F T

    2011-01-01

    In this paper we scrutinize the concept of locally inertial reference frames (LIRF) in Lorentzian and Riemann-Cartan spacetime structures. We present rigorous mathematical definitions for those objects, something that needs preliminary a clear mathematical distinction between the concepts of observers, reference frames, naturally adapted coordinate functions to a given reference frame and which properties may characterize an inertial reference frame (if any) in the Lorentzian and Riemann-Cartan structures. We hope to have clarified some eventual obscure issues associated to the concept of LIRF appearing in the literature, in particular the relationship between LIRFs in Lorentzian and Riemann-Cartan spacetimes and Einstein's most happy though, i.e., the equivalence principle.

    2017-05-01

    The inverse scattering transform of a coupled Sasa-Satsuma equation is studied via Riemann-Hilbert approach. Firstly, the spectral analysis is performed for the coupled Sasa-Satsuma equation, from which a Riemann-Hilbert problem is formulated. Then the Riemann-Hilbert problem corresponding to the reflection-less case is solved. As applications, multi-soliton solutions are obtained for the coupled Sasa-Satsuma equation. Moreover, some figures are given to describe the soliton behaviors, including breather types, single-hump solitons, double-hump solitons, and two-bell solitons.

  3. Riemann integration via primitives for a new proof to the change of variable theorem

    CERN Document Server

    Pouso, Rodrigo López

    2011-01-01

    We approach the Riemann integral via generalized primitives to give a new proof for a general result on change of variable originally proven by Kestelman and Davies. Our proof is similar to Kestelman's, but we hope readers will find it clearer thanks to the use of a new test for the Riemann integrability (which we introduce in this paper) along with some ingredients from some other more recent proofs available in the literature. We also include a bibliographical review of related results and proofs. Although this paper emphasizes in the change of variable theorem, our contributions to the Riemann integration theory are of independent interest. For instance, we present a very simple proof to the fact that continuous functions are integrable which avoids the use of uniform continuity.

    Bogush, A A; Krylov, G G

    2010-01-01

    Schr\\"{o}dinger equation in Lobachevsky and Riemann 4-spaces has been solved in the presence of external magnetic field that is an analog of a uniform magnetic field in the flat space. Generalized Landau levels have been found, modified by the presence of the space curvature. In Lobachevsky4-model the energy spectrum contains discrete and continuous parts, the number of bound states is finite; in Riemann 4-model all energy spectrum is discrete. Generalized Landau levels are determined by three parameters, the magnitude of the magnetic field $B$, the curvature radius $\\rho$ and the magnetic quantum number $m$. It has been shown that in presence of an additional external electric field the energy spectrum in the Riemann model can be also obtained analytically.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Philippe G. LeFloch

    2000-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper deals with the so-called p-system describing the dynamics of isothermal and compressible fluids. The constitutive equation is assumed to have the typical convexity/concavity properties of the van der Waals equation. We search for discontinuous solutions constrained by the associated mathematical entropy inequality. First, following a strategy proposed by Abeyaratne and Knowles and by Hayes and LeFloch, we describe here the whole family of nonclassical Riemann solutions for this model. Second, we supplement the set of equations with a kinetic relation for the propagation of nonclassical undercompressive shocks, and we arrive at a uniquely defined solution of the Riemann problem. We also prove that the solutions depend $L^1$-continuously upon their data. The main novelty of the present paper is the presence of two inflection points in the constitutive equation. The Riemann solver constructed here is relevant for fluids in which viscosity and capillarity effects are kept in balance.

  6. Functional models for commutative systems of linear operators and de Branges spaces on a Riemann surface

    Zolotarev, Vladimir A.

    2009-04-01

    Functional models are constructed for commutative systems \\{A_1,A_2\\} of bounded linear non-self-adjoint operators which do not contain dissipative operators (which means that \\xi_1A_1+\\xi_2A_2 is not a dissipative operator for any \\xi_1, \\xi_2\\in\\mathbb{R}). A significant role is played here by the de Branges transform and the function classes occurring in this context. Classes of commutative systems of operators \\{A_1,A_2\\} for which such a construction is possible are distinguished. Realizations of functional models in special spaces of meromorphic functions on Riemann surfaces are found, which lead to reasonable analogues of de Branges spaces on these Riemann surfaces. It turns out that the functions E(p) and \\widetilde E(p) determining the order of growth in de Branges spaces on Riemann surfaces coincide with the well-known Baker-Akhiezer functions.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mathew Curtis

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The investigation into the summation of two polynomials of the same degree under special given conditions results in a polynomial whose solutions follow a pattern that can be easily predicted. In this study, the theory of such polynomials is developed for examination of the integral parts of Riemann’s works. The analysis leads to a theorem that governs the solutions under certain conditions and applying this theorem to the expanded form of the Riemann-Eta function generates expressions that show why the Riemann hypothesis may be true.

  10. Macroscopic pair correlation of the Riemann zeroes for smooth test functions

    CERN Document Server

    Rodgers, Brad

    2012-01-01

    On the assumption of the Riemann hypothesis, we show that over a class of sufficiently smooth test functions, a measure conjectured by Bogolomony and Keating coincides to a very small error with the actual pair correlation measure for zeroes of the Riemann zeta function. Our result extends the well known result of Montgomery that over the same class of test functions the pair correlation measure coincides (to a larger error term) with that of the Gaussian Unitary Ensemble (GUE). The restriction of test functions remains stringent, but we are nonetheless able to detect, at a microscopically blurred resolution, macroscopic troughs in the pair correlation measure.

  11. Horizontal Monotonicity of the Modulus of the Riemann Zeta Function and Related Functions

    CERN Document Server

    Matiyasevich, Yuri; Zvengrowski, Peter

    2012-01-01

    It is shown that the absolute values of Riemann's zeta function and two related functions strictly decrease when the imaginary part of the argument is fixed to any number with absolute value at least 8 and the real part of the argument is negative and increases up to 0; extending this monotonicity to the increase of the real part up to 1/2 is shown to be equivalent to the Riemann Hypothesis. Another result is a double inequality relating the real parts of the logarithmic derivatives of the three functions under consideration.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available We consider the control systems governed by semilinear differential equations with Riemann-Liouville fractional derivatives in Banach spaces. Firstly, by applying fixed point strategy, some suitable conditions are established to guarantee the existence and uniqueness of mild solutions for a broad class of fractional infinite dimensional control systems. Then, by using generally mild conditions of cost functional, we extend the existence result of optimal controls to the Riemann-Liouville fractional control systems. Finally, a concrete application is given to illustrate the effectiveness of our main results.

    Full Text Available Bring's curve is the genus 4 Riemann surface with automorphism group of maximal size, S_5. Riera and Rodríguez have provided the most detailed study of the curve thus far via a hyperbolic model. We will recover and extend their results via an algebraic model based on a sextic curve given by both Hulek and Craig and implicit in work of Ramanujan. In particular we recover their period matrix; further, the vector of Riemann constants will be identified.

    2000-01-01

    This paper gives a new viscous regularization of the Riemann problem for Burgers' equation ut += 0 with Riemann initial data u = u_(x _< 0),u =u+(x > 0) at t = 0. The regularization is given by ut += εetuxx with appropriate initial data. The method is different from the classical method, through comparison of three viscous equations of it. Here it is also shown that the difference of the three regularizations approaches zero in appropriate integral norms depending on the data as ε → 0+ for any given T > 0.

    Full Text Available Fractional variational iteration method (FVIM is performed to give an approximate analytical solution of nonlinear fractional Riccati differential equation. Fractional derivatives are described in the Riemann-Liouville derivative. A new application of fractional variational iteration method (FVIM was extended to derive analytical solutions in the form of a series for these equations. The behavior of the solutions and the effects of different values of fractional order are indicated graphically. The results obtained by the FVIM reveal that the method is very reliable, convenient, and effective method for nonlinear differential equations with modified Riemann-Liouville derivative

  16. The Schlesinger system and isomonodromic deformations of bundles with connections on Riemann surfaces

    Science.gov (United States)

    Artamonov, D. V.

    2012-06-01

    We introduce a way to represent pairs (E,∇), where E is a bundle on a Riemann surface and ∇ is a logarithmic connection in E, based on a representation of the surface as the quotient of the exterior of the unit disc. In this representation, we write the local isomonodromic deformation conditions for the pairs (E,∇). These conditions are written as a modified Schlesinger system on a Riemann sphere (reduced to the ordinary Schlesinger system in the typical case) supplemented by a certain system of linear equations.

    In the degassing process of transformer oil with ultrasonic waves, decomposition of the oil was observed. Light hydrocarbons, including methane, ethane, ethylene, acetylene, propane etc, were found to be released continuously from the oil into headspace within a closed vial placed in an ultrasonic field. The gases came from decomposition of hydrocarbon molecules under cavitation effect.

    Some new domain decomposition methods based on natural boundary reduction are suggested for overlapping and non-overlapping domains. A two-dimensional scalar wave equation is taken as a model to illustrate these methods. The governing equation is discretized in time, leading to time-stepping scheme, where an exterior elliptic problem has to be solved in each time step. The Dirichlet-Neumann method and Schwartz alternating method are proposed respectively. For the Schwartz alternating method, the convergence of the algorithm and the contraction factor for exterior circular domain are given. Finally, some numerical examples are devoted to illustrate these methods.%提出了无界区域波动方程的区域分解算法.基于自然边界归化,分别研究了重叠型与非重叠型区域分解算法.首先将控制方程对时间进行离散化,得到关于时间步长离散化格式,对每一时间步长给出了Dirichlet-Neumann和Schwartz交替算法.对Schwartz交替算法,给出了算法的收敛性,对圆外区域研究了压缩因子,并给出了数值例子.

    Highlights: • Ethylene was decomposed by a photoelectrocatalytic (PEC) process. • A pulsed direct current square-wave (PDCSW) potential was applied to the PEC cell. • An electrode of TiO{sub 2} or modified TiO{sub 2} and activated carbon fiber (ACF) was used. • TiO{sub 2}/ACF photocatalyst electrodes were modified by gamma radiolysis. • Efficiencies of the PEC process were higher than those of the process using DC. - Abstract: Removing ethylene (C{sub 2}H{sub 4}) from the atmosphere of storage facilities for fruits and vegetable is one of the main challenges in their postharvest handling for maximizing their freshness, quality, and shelf life. In this study, we investigated the photoelectrocatalytic (PEC) degradation of ethylene gas by applying a pulsed direct current DC square-wave (PDCSW) potential and by using a Nafion-based PEC cell. The cell utilized a titanium dioxide (TiO{sub 2}) photocatalyst or γ-irradiated TiO{sub 2} (TiO{sub 2}{sup *}) loaded on activated carbon fiber (ACF) as a photoelectrode. The apparent rate constant of a pseudo-first-order reaction (K) was used to describe the PEC degradation of ethylene. Parameters of the potential applied to the PEC cell in a reactor that affect the degradation efficiency in terms of the K value were studied. These parameters were frequency, duty cycle, and voltage. Ethylene degradation by application of a constant PDCSW potential to the PEC electrode of either TiO{sub 2}/ACF cell or TiO{sub 2}{sup *}/ACF cell enhanced the efficiency of photocatalytic degradation and PEC degradation. Gamma irradiation of TiO{sub 2} in the electrode and the applied PDCSW potential synergistically increased the K value. Independent variables (frequency, duty cycle, and voltage) of the PEC cell fabricated from TiO{sub 2} subjected 20 kGy γ radiation were optimized to maximize the K value by using response surface methodology with quadratic rotation–orthogonal composite experimental design. Optimized conditions were as

    Iatsenko, Dmytro; McClintock, Peter V. E.; Stefanovska, Aneta

    2015-09-01

    The signals emanating from complex systems are usually composed of a mixture of different oscillations which, for a reliable analysis, should be separated from each other and from the inevitable background of noise. Here we introduce an adaptive decomposition tool—nonlinear mode decomposition (NMD)—which decomposes a given signal into a set of physically meaningful oscillations for any wave form, simultaneously removing the noise. NMD is based on the powerful combination of time-frequency analysis techniques—which, together with the adaptive choice of their parameters, make it extremely noise robust—and surrogate data tests used to identify interdependent oscillations and to distinguish deterministic from random activity. We illustrate the application of NMD to both simulated and real signals and demonstrate its qualitative and quantitative superiority over other approaches, such as (ensemble) empirical mode decomposition, Karhunen-Loève expansion, and independent component analysis. We point out that NMD is likely to be applicable and useful in many different areas of research, such as geophysics, finance, and the life sciences. The necessary matlab codes for running NMD are freely available for download.

  2. Von Neumann stability analysis of globally divergence-free RKDG schemes for the induction equation using multidimensional Riemann solvers

    Science.gov (United States)

    Balsara, Dinshaw S.; Käppeli, Roger

    2017-05-01

    In this paper we focus on the numerical solution of the induction equation using Runge-Kutta Discontinuous Galerkin (RKDG)-like schemes that are globally divergence-free. The induction equation plays a role in numerical MHD and other systems like it. It ensures that the magnetic field evolves in a divergence-free fashion; and that same property is shared by the numerical schemes presented here. The algorithms presented here are based on a novel DG-like method as it applies to the magnetic field components in the faces of a mesh. (I.e., this is not a conventional DG algorithm for conservation laws.) The other two novel building blocks of the method include divergence-free reconstruction of the magnetic field and multidimensional Riemann solvers; both of which have been developed in recent years by the first author. Since the method is linear, a von Neumann stability analysis is carried out in two-dimensions to understand its stability properties. The von Neumann stability analysis that we develop in this paper relies on transcribing from a modal to a nodal DG formulation in order to develop discrete evolutionary equations for the nodal values. These are then coupled to a suitable Runge-Kutta timestepping strategy so that one can analyze the stability of the entire scheme which is suitably high order in space and time. We show that our scheme permits CFL numbers that are comparable to those of traditional RKDG schemes. We also analyze the wave propagation characteristics of the method and show that with increasing order of accuracy the wave propagation becomes more isotropic and free of dissipation for a larger range of long wavelength modes. This makes a strong case for investing in higher order methods. We also use the von Neumann stability analysis to show that the divergence-free reconstruction and multidimensional Riemann solvers are essential algorithmic ingredients of a globally divergence-free RKDG-like scheme. Numerical accuracy analyses of the RKDG

    Science.gov (United States)

    George, D.L.

    2011-01-01

    The simulation of advancing flood waves over rugged topography, by solving the shallow-water equations with well-balanced high-resolution finite volume methods and block-structured dynamic adaptive mesh refinement (AMR), is described and validated in this paper. The efficiency of block-structured AMR makes large-scale problems tractable, and allows the use of accurate and stable methods developed for solving general hyperbolic problems on quadrilateral grids. Features indicative of flooding in rugged terrain, such as advancing wet-dry fronts and non-stationary steady states due to balanced source terms from variable topography, present unique challenges and require modifications such as special Riemann solvers. A well-balanced Riemann solver for inundation and general (non-stationary) flow over topography is tested in this context. The difficulties of modeling floods in rugged terrain, and the rationale for and efficacy of using AMR and well-balanced methods, are presented. The algorithms are validated by simulating the Malpasset dam-break flood (France, 1959), which has served as a benchmark problem previously. Historical field data, laboratory model data and other numerical simulation results (computed on static fitted meshes) are shown for comparison. The methods are implemented in GEOCLAW, a subset of the open-source CLAWPACK software. All the software is freely available at. Published in 2010 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

  4. Riemann Zeta Zeros and Prime Number Spectra in Quantum Field Theory

    Science.gov (United States)

    Menezes, G.; Svaiter, B. F.; Svaiter, N. F.

    2013-10-01

    The Riemann hypothesis states that all nontrivial zeros of the zeta function lie in the critical line Re(s) = 1/2. Hilbert and Pólya suggested that one possible way to prove the Riemann hypothesis is to interpret the nontrivial zeros in the light of spectral theory. Using the construction of the so-called super-zeta functions or secondary zeta functions built over the Riemann nontrivial zeros and the regularity property of one of this function at the origin, we show that it is possible to extend the Hilbert-Pólya conjecture to systems with countably infinite number of degrees of freedom. The sequence of the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function can be interpreted as the spectrum of a self-adjoint operator of some hypothetical system described by the functional approach to quantum field theory. However, if one considers the same situation with numerical sequences whose asymptotic distributions are not "far away" from the asymptotic distribution of prime numbers, the associated functional integral cannot be constructed. Finally, we discuss possible relations between the asymptotic behavior of a sequence and the analytic domain of the associated zeta function.

  6. A canonical system of differential equations arising from the Riemann zeta-function

    CERN Document Server

    Suzuki, Masatoshi

    2012-01-01

    This paper has two main results, which relate to a criteria for the Riemann hypothesis via the family of functions $\\Theta_\\omega(z)=\\xi(1/2-\\omega-iz)/\\xi(1/2+\\omega-iz)$, where $\\omega>0$ is a real parameter and $\\xi(s)$ is the Riemann xi-function. The first main result is necessary and sufficient conditions for $\\Theta_\\omega$ to be a meromorphic inner function in the upper half-plane. It is related to the Riemann hypothesis directly whether $\\Theta_\\omega$ is a meromorphic inner function. In comparison with this, a relation of the Riemann hypothesis and the second main result is indirect. It relates to the theory of de Branges, which associates a meromorphic inner function and a canonical system of linear differential equations (in the sense of de Branges). As the second main result, the canonical system associated with $\\Theta_\\omega$ is constructed explicitly and unconditionally under the restriction of the parameter $\\omega >1$ by applying a method of J.-F.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pesic, Peter

    2013-09-01

    Emerging from music and the visual arts, questions about hearing and seeing deeply affected Hermann Helmholtz's and Bernhard Riemann's contributions to what became called the "problem of space [ Raumproblem]," which in turn influenced Albert Einstein's approach to general relativity. Helmholtz's physiological investigations measured the time dependence of nerve conduction and mapped the three-dimensional manifold of color sensation. His concurrent studies on hearing illuminated musical evidence through experiments with mechanical sirens that connect audible with visible phenomena, especially how the concept of frequency unifies motion, velocity, and pitch. Riemann's critique of Helmholtz's work on hearing led Helmholtz to respond and study Riemann's then-unpublished lecture on the foundations of geometry. During 1862-1870, Helmholtz applied his findings on the manifolds of hearing and seeing to the Raumproblem by supporting the quadratic distance relation Riemann had assumed as his fundamental hypothesis about geometrical space. Helmholtz also drew a "close analogy … in all essential relations between the musical scale and space." These intersecting studies of hearing and seeing thus led to reconsideration and generalization of the very concept of "space," which Einstein shaped into the general manifold of relativistic space-time.

We study the longitudinal part of the worldsheet theory on higher genus Riemann surfaces. The results in this paper shall be used to study the dimensional regularization of light-cone gauge string field theory.

    We consider massive spin 1 fields, in Riemann-Cartan space-times, described by Duffin-Kemmer-Petiau theory. We show that this approach induces a coupling between the spin 1 field and the space-time torsion which breaks the usual equivalence with the Proca theory, but that such equivalence is preserved in the context of the Teleparallel Equivalent of General Relativity.

    We show that if the derivative of the Riemann zeta function has sufficiently many zeros close to the critical line, then the zeta function has many closely spaced zeros. This gives a condition on the zeros of the derivative of the zeta function which implies a lower bound of the class numbers of imaginary quadratic fields.

    We calculate the discrete moments of the characteristic polynomial of a random unitary matrix, evaluated a small distance away from an eigenangle. Such results allow us to make conjectures about similar moments for the Riemann zeta function, and provide a uniform approach to understanding moments of the zeta function and its derivative.

    2017-01-01

    Starting with the basic notions and facts of the mathematical theory of waves illustrated by numerous examples, exercises, and methods of solving typical problems Chapters 1 & 2 show e.g. how to recognize the hyperbolicity property, find characteristics, Riemann invariants and conservation laws for quasilinear systems of equations, construct and analyze solutions with weak or strong discontinuities, and how to investigate equations with dispersion and to construct travelling wave solutions for models reducible to nonlinear evolution equations. Chapter 3 deals with surface and internal waves in an incompressible fluid. The efficiency of mathematical methods is demonstrated on a hierarchy of approximate submodels generated from the Euler equations of homogeneous and non-homogeneous fluids. The self-contained presentations of the material is complemented by 200+ problems of different level of difficulty, numerous illustrations, and bibliographical recommendations.

    Over the past two decades,structural decomposition analysis(SDA)has developed into a major analytical tool in the field of input-output(IO)techniques,but the method was found to suffer from one or more of the following problems.The decomposition forms,which are used to measure the contribution of a specific determinant,are not unique due to the existence of a multitude of equivalent forms,irrational due to the weights of different determinants not matching,inexact due to the existence of large interaction terms.In this paper,a decomposition method is derived to overcome these deficiencies,and we prove that the result of this approach is equal to the Shapley value in cooperative games,and so some properties of the method are obtained.Beyond that,the two approaches that have been used predominantly in the literature have been proved to be the approximate solutions of the method.

  2. SU(2) flat connection on a Riemann surface and 3D twisted geometry with a cosmological constant

    2017-02-01

    Twisted geometries are understood to be the discrete classical limit of loop quantum gravity. In this paper, SU(2) flat connections on a (decorated) 2D Riemann surface are shown to be equivalent to the generalized twisted geometries in 3D space with cosmological constant. Various flat connection quantities on a Riemann surface are mapped to the geometrical quantities in discrete 3D space. We propose that the moduli space of SU(2) flat connections on a Riemann surface generalizes the phase space of twisted geometry or loop quantum gravity to include a cosmological constant.

  3. An improved wave-vector frequency-domain method for nonlinear wave modeling.

    Jing, Yun; Tao, Molei; Cannata, Jonathan

    2014-03-01

    In this paper, a recently developed wave-vector frequency-domain method for nonlinear wave modeling is improved and verified by numerical simulations and underwater experiments. Higher order numeric schemes are proposed that significantly increase the modeling accuracy, thereby allowing for a larger step size and shorter computation time. The improved algorithms replace the left-point Riemann sum in the original algorithm by the trapezoidal or Simpson's integration. Plane waves and a phased array were first studied to numerically validate the model. It is shown that the left-point Riemann sum, trapezoidal, and Simpson's integration have first-, second-, and third-order global accuracy, respectively. A highly focused therapeutic transducer was then used for experimental verifications. Short high-intensity pulses were generated. 2-D scans were conducted at a prefocal plane, which were later used as the input to the numerical model to predict the acoustic field at other planes. Good agreement is observed between simulations and experiments.

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available We work with the system of partial differential equations describing the non-stationary compressible turbulent fluid flow. It is a characteristic feature of the hyperbolic equations, that there is a possible raise of discontinuities in solutions, even in the case when the initial conditions are smooth. The fundamental problem in this area is the solution of the so-called Riemann problem for the split Euler equations. It is the elementary problem of the one-dimensional conservation laws with the given initial conditions (LIC - left-hand side, and RIC - right-hand side. The solution of this problem is required in many numerical methods dealing with the 2D/3D fluid flow. The exact (entropy weak solution of this hyperbolical problem cannot be expressed in a closed form, and has to be computed by an iterative process (to given accuracy, therefore various approximations of this solution are being used. The complicated Riemann problem has to be further modified at the close vicinity of boundary, where the LIC is given, while the RIC is not known. Usually, this boundary problem is being linearized, or roughly approximated. The inaccuracies implied by these simplifications may be small, but these have a huge impact on the solution in the whole studied area, especially for the non-stationary flow. Using the thorough analysis of the Riemann problem we show, that the RIC for the local problem can be partially replaced by the suitable complementary conditions. We suggest such complementary conditions accordingly to the desired preference. This way it is possible to construct the boundary conditions by the preference of total values, by preference of pressure, velocity, mass flow, temperature. Further, using the suitable complementary conditions, it is possible to simulate the flow in the vicinity of the diffusible barrier. On the contrary to the initial-value Riemann problem, the solution of such modified problems can be written in the closed form for some

  8. Limits to acoustic sensing and modal decomposition using FBGs

    2016-04-01

    Lamb-wave based structural health monitoring (SHM) approaches are typically constrained to operate below the first cut-off frequency to simplify the interpretation of the wave field in the time-domain. However from a diagnostic perspective, it is desirable to unlock the additional information encoded in the higher-order Lamb wave spectrum. Wave-mode decomposition is necessary for the extraction of useful information from multi-modal acoustic wave fields, which requires spatially dense sampling over the field. The instrument of choice for this task is the laser Doppler vibrometer, which is capable of producing detailed spectral decompositions. However vibrometry is not suited to in-situ measurement for SHM. Fibre Bragg gratings (FBGs) are capable of sensing Lamb waves and detection of higher order modes using FBGs has been previously demonstrated. The ability to multiplex multiple short-length gratings along a single fibre to create an FBG array gives rise to an in-situ sensor with sufficiently dense spatial sampling of an acoustic wave field to perform useful wave-mode decomposition. This paper explores some of the fundamental limits to modal decomposition resolution and bandwidth that exist for such sensors. Potential sources of noise and distortion encountered due to limitations of the sensor fabrication and interrogation methods are also discussed. In addition, modal decomposition of Lamb waves with frequencies up to 1.25 MHz is demonstrated in a laboratory experiment using an array of sixteen ~1 mm long gratings bonded to an aluminium plate. At least four modes are distinguishable in the resulting spectral decomposition.

  9. Large deviations for local times and intersection local times of fractional Brownian motions and Riemann-Liouville processes

    Chen, Xia; Rosinski, Jan; Shao, Qi-Man

    2009-01-01

    In this paper we prove exact forms of large deviations for local times and intersection local times of fractional Brownian motions and Riemann-Liouville processes. We also show that a fractional Brownian motion and the related Riemann-Liouville process behave like constant multiples of each other with regard to large deviations for their local and intersection local times. As a consequence of our large deviation estimates, we derive laws of iterated logarithm for the corresponding local times. The key points of our methods: (1) logarithmic superadditivity of a normalized sequence of moments of exponentially randomized local time of a fractional Brownian motion; (2) logarithmic subadditivity of a normalized sequence of moments of exponentially randomized intersection local time of Riemann-Liouville processes; (3) comparison of local and intersection local times based on embedding of a part of a fractional Brownian motion into the reproducing kernel Hilbert space of the Riemann-Liouville process.

  10. Analysis of kinematic waves arising in diverging traffic flow models

    CERN Document Server

    Jin, Wen-Long

    2010-01-01

    Diverging junctions are important network bottlenecks, and a better understanding of diverging traffic dynamics has both theoretical and practical implications. In this paper, we first introduce a continuous multi-commodity kinematic wave model of diverging traffic and then present a new framework for constructing kinematic wave solutions to its Riemann problem with jump initial conditions. In supply-demand space, the solutions on a link consist of an interior state and a stationary state, subject to admissible conditions such that there are no positive and negative kinematic waves on the upstream and downstream links respectively. In addition, the solutions have to satisfy entropy conditions consistent with various discrete diverge models. In the proposed analytical framework, kinematic waves on each link can be uniquely determined by the stationary and initial conditions, and we prove that the stationary states and boundary fluxes exist and are unique for the Riemann problem of diverge models when all or pa...

A generalized formula for energy levels, describing quantization of the motion of the particle in magnetic field on the background of the Riemann space geometry, is obtained.

  14. A two-dimensional Riemann solver with self-similar sub-structure - Alternative formulation based on least squares projection

    2016-01-01

    Just as the quality of a one-dimensional approximate Riemann solver is improved by the inclusion of internal sub-structure, the quality of a multidimensional Riemann solver is also similarly improved. Such multidimensional Riemann problems arise when multiple states come together at the vertex of a mesh. The interaction of the resulting one-dimensional Riemann problems gives rise to a strongly-interacting state. We wish to endow this strongly-interacting state with physically-motivated sub-structure. The self-similar formulation of Balsara [16] proves especially useful for this purpose. While that work is based on a Galerkin projection, in this paper we present an analogous self-similar formulation that is based on a different interpretation. In the present formulation, we interpret the shock jumps at the boundary of the strongly-interacting state quite literally. The enforcement of the shock jump conditions is done with a least squares projection (Vides, Nkonga and Audit [67]). With that interpretation, we again show that the multidimensional Riemann solver can be endowed with sub-structure. However, we find that the most efficient implementation arises when we use a flux vector splitting and a least squares projection. An alternative formulation that is based on the full characteristic matrices is also presented. The multidimensional Riemann solvers that are demonstrated here use one-dimensional HLLC Riemann solvers as building blocks. Several stringent test problems drawn from hydrodynamics and MHD are presented to show that the method works. Results from structured and unstructured meshes demonstrate the versatility of our method. The reader is also invited to watch a video introduction to multidimensional Riemann solvers on http://www.nd.edu/~dbalsara/Numerical-PDE-Course.

  15. The 4.36-th moment of the Riemann zeta function

    2011-01-01

    Conditionally on the Riemann Hypothesis we obtain bounds of the correct order of magnitude for the 2k-th moment of the Riemann zeta function for all positive real k 2; the case of k = 2 corresponds to a classical result of Ingham. We prove our result by establishing a connection between moments with k > 2 and the so-called "twisted fourth moment". This allows us to appeal to a recent result of Hughes and Young. Furthermore we obtain a point-wise bound for |zeta(1/2 + it)|^{2r} (with 0 < r < 1) that can be regarded as a multiplicative analogue of Selberg's bound for S(T). We also establish asymptotic formulae for moments (k < 2.181) slightly off the half-line.

    2011-02-01

    We study the distribution of graded degrees of freedom in classically stable oriented closed string vacua and use the Rankin-Selberg transform to link it to the finite one-loop vacuum energy. In particular, we find that the spectrum of physical excitations not only must enjoy asymptotic supersymmetry but actually, at very large mass, bosonic and fermionic states must follow a universal oscillating pattern, whose frequencies are related to the zeros of the Riemann ζ-function. Moreover, the convergence rate of the overall number of the graded degrees of freedom to the value of the vacuum energy is determined by the Riemann hypothesis. We discuss also attempts to obtain constraints in the case of tachyon-free open-string theories.

  17. Newton flow of the Riemann zeta function: separatrices control the appearance of zeros

    2014-10-01

    A great many phenomena in physics can be traced back to the zeros of a function or a functional. Eigenvalue or variational problems prevalent in classical as well as quantum mechanics are examples illustrating this statement. Continuous descent methods taken with respect to the proper metric are efficient ways to attack such problems. In particular, the continuous Newton method brings out the lines of constant phase of a complex-valued function. Although the patterns created by the Newton flow are reminiscent of the field lines of electrostatics and magnetostatics they cannot be realized in this way since in general they are not curl-free. We apply the continuous Newton method to the Riemann zeta function and discuss the emerging patterns emphasizing especially the structuring of the non-trivial zeros by the separatrices. This approach might open a new road toward the Riemann hypothesis.

    2012-01-01

    In order to cope with some difficulties due to the fact that the derivative of a constant is not zero with the commonly accepted Riemann-Liouville definition of fractional derivative,one (Jumarie)has proposed recently an alternative referred to as (local) modified Riemann-Liouville definition,which directly,provides a Taylor's series of fractional order for non differentiable functions.We examine here in which way this calculus can be used as a framework for a differential geometry of fractional order.One will examine successively implicit function,manifold,length of curves,radius of curvature,Christoffel coefficients,velocity,acceleration.One outlines the application of this framework to Lagrange optimization in mechanics,and one concludes with some considerations on a possible fractional extension of the pseudo-geodesic of thespecial relativity and of the Lorentz transformation.

    This note describes an algorithm with which to compute numerical solutions to the one- dimensional, Cartesian Riemann problem for compressible flow with general, convex equations of state. While high-level descriptions of this approach are to be found in the literature, this note contains most of the necessary details required to write software for this problem. This explanation corresponds to the approach used in the source code that evaluates solutions for the 1D, Cartesian Riemann problem with a JWL equation of state in the ExactPack package [16, 29]. Numerical examples are given with the proposed computational approach for a polytropic equation of state and for the JWL equation of state.

    In the paper,the numerical simulation of interface problems for multiple material fluids is studied.The level set function is designed to capture the location of the material interface.For multi-dimensional and multi-material fluids,the modified ghost fluid method needs a Riemann solution to renew the variable states near the interface.Here we present a new convenient and effective algorithm for solving the Riemann problem in the normal direction.The extrapolated variables are populated by Taylor series expansions in the direction.The anti-diffusive high order WENO difference scheme with the limiter is adopted for the numerical simulation.Finally we implement a series of numerical experiments of multi-material flows.The obtained results are satisfying,compared to those by other methods.

    By compactifying gauge theories on a lower dimensional manifold, we often find many interesting relationships between geometry and supersymmetric quantum field theories. In this paper we consider conformal field theories obtained from twisted compactification on a Riemann surface with a boundary. Various kinds of supersymmetric boundary conditions are exchanged under S-duality. To consider these transformations one need to take into account boundary degrees of freedom. So we study how these degrees of freedom can be added at the boundary of the Riemann surface. For these the boundary fields to be added it is convenient to rewrite the theory by means of superfields. Therefore, I show in this paper that the 4d SYM action can be surely expressed as 2d superfields.

  2. Classical Particle in Presence of Magnetic Field, Hyperbolic Lobachevsky and Spherical Riemann Models

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available Motion of a classical particle in 3-dimensional Lobachevsky and Riemann spaces is studied in the presence of an external magnetic field which is analogous to a constant uniform magnetic field in Euclidean space. In both cases three integrals of motions are constructed and equations of motion are solved exactly in the special cylindrical coordinates on the base of the method of separation of variables. In Lobachevsky space there exist trajectories of two types, finite and infinite in radial variable, in Riemann space all motions are finite and periodical. The invariance of the uniform magnetic field in tensor description and gauge invariance of corresponding 4-potential description is demonstrated explicitly. The role of the symmetry is clarified in classification of all possible solutions, based on the geometric symmetry group, SO(3,1 and SO(4 respectively.

    2008-11-01

    Prime numbers are the building blocks of our arithmetic; however, their distribution still poses fundamental questions. Riemann showed that the distribution of primes could be given explicitly if one knew the distribution of the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta(s) function. According to the Hilbert-Pólya conjecture, there exists a Hermitian operator of which the eigenvalues coincide with the real parts of the nontrivial zeros of zeta(s) . This idea has encouraged physicists to examine the properties of such possible operators, and they have found interesting connections between the distribution of zeros and the distribution of energy eigenvalues of quantum systems. We apply the Marchenko approach to construct potentials with energy eigenvalues equal to the prime numbers and to the zeros of the zeta(s) function. We demonstrate the multifractal nature of these potentials by measuring the Rényi dimension of their graphs. Our results offer hope for further analytical progress.

  4. The Drinfeld-Sokolov holomorphic bundle and classical W algebras on Riemann surfaces

    CERN Document Server

    Zucchini, R

    1994-01-01

    Developing upon the ideas of ref. \\ref{6}, it is shown how the theory of classical W algebras can be formulated on a higher genus Riemann surface in the spirit of Krichever and Novikov. The basic geometric object is the Drinfeld-Sokolov principal bundle L associated to a simple complex Lie group G equipped with an $SL(2,\\Bbb C)$ subgroup S, whose properties are studied in detail. On a multipunctured Riemann surface, the Drinfeld-Sokolov-Krichever-Novikov spaces are defined, as a generalization of the customary Krichever-Novikov spaces, their properties are analyzed and standard bases are written down. Finally, a WZWN chiral phase space based on the principal bundle L with a KM type Poisson structure is introduced and, by the usual procedure of imposing first class constraints and gauge fixing, a classical W algebra is produced. The compatibility of the construction with the global geometric data is highlighted.

    The book contains a collection of works on Riemann-Cartan and metric-affine manifolds provided with nonlinear connection structure and on generalized Finsler-Lagrange and Cartan-Hamilton geometries and Clifford structures modelled on such manifolds. The choice of material presented has evolved from various applications in modern gravity and geometric mechanics and certain generalizations to noncommutative Riemann-Finsler geometry.

    2015-01-01

    The covariantization procedure is usually referred to the translation operator, that is the derivative. Here we introduce a general method to covariantize arbitrary differential operators, such as the ones defining the fundamental group of a given manifold. We focus on the differential operators representing the sl(2,R) generators, which in turn, generate, by exponentiation, the two-dimensional conformal transformations. A key point of our construction is the recent result on the closed forms of the Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formula. In particular, our covariantization receipt is quite general. This has a deep consequence since it means that the covariantization of the conformal group is {\\it always definite}. Our covariantization receipt is quite general and apply in general situations, including AdS/CFT. Here we focus on the projective unitary representations of the fundamental group of a Riemann surface, which may include elliptic points and punctures, introduced in the framework of noncommutative Riemann s...

    2008-01-01

    The name of Bernard Riemann is well known to mathematicians and physicists around the world. College students encounter the Riemann integral early in their studies. Real and complex function theories are founded on Riemann’s work. Einstein’s theory of gravitation would be unthinkable without Riemannian geometry. In number theory, Riemann’s famous conjecture stands as one of the classic challenges to the best mathematical minds and continues to stimulate deep mathematical research. The name is indelibly stamped on the literature of mathematics and physics. This book, originally written in German and presented here in an English-language translation, examines Riemann’s scientific work from a single unifying perspective. Laugwitz describes Riemann’s development of a conceptual approach to mathematics at a time when conventional algorithmic thinking dictated that formulas and figures, rigid constructs, and transformations of terms were the only legitimate means of studying mathematical objects.

    Decomposition theory studies decompositions, or partitions, of manifolds into simple pieces, usually cell-like sets. Since its inception in 1929, the subject has become an important tool in geometric topology. The main goal of the book is to help students interested in geometric topology to bridge the gap between entry-level graduate courses and research at the frontier as well as to demonstrate interrelations of decomposition theory with other parts of geometric topology. With numerous exercises and problems, many of them quite challenging, the book continues to be strongly recommended to eve

  9. Statistical and other properties of Riemann zeros based on an explicit formula for the n-th zero

    CERN Document Server

    França, Guilherme

    2013-01-01

    Very recently, a transcendental equation satisfied by the $n$-th Riemann zero on the critical line was derived by one of us. Here we provide a more detailed analysis of this result, demonstrating more rigorously that the Riemann zeros occur on the critical line with real part equal to 1/2, and their imaginary parts satisfy such a transcendental equation. From this equation, the counting of zeros on the critical line can be derived, yielding precisely the Riemann-von Mangoldt counting function $N(T)$ for the zeros on the entire critical strip. Therefore, these results constitute a proposal for establishing the validity of the Riemann Hypothesis. We also obtain an approximate solution of the transcendental equation, in closed form, based on the Lambert $W$ function. This yields a very good estimate for the Riemann zeros, for arbitrarily high values on the critical line. We then obtain numerical solutions of the complete transcendental equation, yielding accurate numbers for the Riemann zeros, which agree with p...

    The aim of this note is to remove an implausible assumption in Moser's theorem [1] to establish our Theorem 1 which gives a lower estimate for the sum p+c2ρ on Riemann hypothesis. Corollary 1 gives a rather plausible construction of infinitely many models of universe with positive density ρ and pressure p since it makes use of the state equation in the form of an inequality.

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Considering energy conservation and the back reaction of radiating particles to the spacetime, we investigate the massive Dirac particles' Hawking radiation from a general static Riemann black hole using improved Damour-Ruffini method. A direct consequence is that the radiation spectrum is not strictly thermal. The correction to the thermal spectrum is consistent with an underlying unitary quantum theory and this may have profound implications for the black hole information loss paradox.

    There has been a surge of interest of late in an old result of Nyman and Beurling giving a Hilbert space formulation of the Riemann hypothesis. Many authors have contributed to this circle of ideas, culminating in a beautiful refinement due to Baez-Duarte. The purpose of this little survey is to dis-entangle the resulting web of complications, and reveal the essential simplicity of the main results.

  14. Conduction in quasiperiodic and quasirandom lattices: Fibonacci, Riemann, and Anderson models

    We study the ground state conduction properties of noninteracting electrons in aperiodic but nonrandom one-dimensional models with chiral symmetry and make comparisons against Anderson models with nondeterministic disorder. The first model we consider is the Fibonacci lattice, which is a paradigmatic model of quasicrystals; the second is the Riemann lattice, which we define inspired by Dyson's proposal on the possible connection between the Riemann hypothesis and a suitably defined quasicrystal. Our analysis is based on Kohn's many-particle localization tensor defined within the modern theory of the insulating state. In the Fibonacci quasicrystal, where all single-particle eigenstates are critical (i.e., intermediate between ergodic and localized), the noninteracting electron gas is found to be an insulator, due to spectral gaps, at various specific fillings ρ , including the values ρ =1 /gn , where g is the golden ratio and n is any integer; however away from these spectral anomalies, the system is found to be a conductor, including the half-filled case. In the Riemann lattice metallic behavior is found at half filling as well; however, in contrast to the Fibonacci quasicrystal, the Riemann lattice is generically an insulator due to single-particle eigenstate localization, likely at all other fillings. Its behavior turns out to be alike that of the off-diagonal Anderson model, albeit with different system-size scaling of the band-center anomalies. The advantages of analyzing the Kohn's localization tensor instead of other measures of localization familiar from the theory of Anderson insulators (such as the participation ratio or the Lyapunov exponent) are highlighted.

    2001-01-01

    In this work we establish an existence theorem of regulated solutions for a class of Stieltjes equations which involve generalized Riemann kind of integrals. The general method applied consists in considering the continuous-time Stieltjes equation as limit of discrete processes. This approach will prove fruitful in the study of the controllability of Stieltjes systems, because it will be possible to get properties on the continuous time equation by transferring properties of the discrete ones.

    2005-10-01

    We address the general issue of resolving the wave vector in complex electromagnetic media including negative refractive media. This requires us to make a physical choice of the sign of a square root imposed merely by conditions of causality. By considering the analytic behavior of the wave vector in the complex plane, it is shown that there are a total of eight physically distinct cases in the four quadrants of two Riemann sheets.

  18. Riemann zeros and phase transitions via the spectral operator on fractal strings

    Science.gov (United States)

    Herichi, Hafedh; Lapidus, Michel L.

    2012-09-01

    The spectral operator was introduced by Lapidus and van Frankenhuijsen (2006 Fractal Geometry, Complex Dimensions and Zeta Functions: Geometry and Spectra of Fractal Strings) in their reinterpretation of the earlier work of Lapidus and Maier (1995 J. Lond. Math. Soc. 52 15-34) on inverse spectral problems and the Riemann hypothesis. In essence, it is a map that sends the geometry of a fractal string onto its spectrum. In this review, we present the rigorous functional analytic framework given by Herichi and Lapidus (2012) and within which to study the spectral operator. Furthermore, we give a necessary and sufficient condition for the invertibility of the spectral operator (in the critical strip) and therefore obtain a new spectral and operator-theoretic reformulation of the Riemann hypothesis. More specifically, we show that the spectral operator is quasi-invertible (or equivalently, that its truncations are invertible) if and only if the Riemann zeta function ζ(s) does not have any zeros on the vertical line Re(s) = c. Hence, it is not invertible in the mid-fractal case when c=\\frac{1}{2}, and it is quasi-invertible everywhere else (i.e. for all c ∈ (0, 1) with c\

    Under specific assumptions, parabolized Navier-Stokes equations are a suitable mean to study channel flows. A special case is that of high pressure flow of real gases in cooling channels where large crosswise gradients of thermophysical properties occur. To solve the parabolized Navier-Stokes equations by a space marching approach, the hyperbolicity of the system of governing equations is obtained, even for very low Mach number flow, by recasting equations such that the streamwise pressure gradient is considered as a source term. For this system of equations an approximate Roe's Riemann solver is developed as the core of a Godunov type finite volume algorithm. The properties of the approximated Riemann solver, which is a modification of Roe's Riemann solver for the parabolized Navier-Stokes equations, are presented and discussed with emphasis given to its original features introduced to handle fluids governed by a generic real gas EoS. Sample solutions are obtained for low Mach number high compressible flows of transcritical methane, heated in straight long channels, to prove the solver ability to describe flows dominated by complex thermodynamic phenomena.

  20. A Modified Groundwater Flow Model Using the Space Time Riemann-Liouville Fractional Derivatives Approximation

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The notion of uncertainty in groundwater hydrology is of great importance as it is known to result in misleading output when neglected or not properly accounted for. In this paper we examine this effect in groundwater flow models. To achieve this, we first introduce the uncertainties functions u as function of time and space. The function u accounts for the lack of knowledge or variability of the geological formations in which flow occur (aquifer in time and space. We next make use of Riemann-Liouville fractional derivatives that were introduced by Kobelev and Romano in 2000 and its approximation to modify the standard version of groundwater flow equation. Some properties of the modified Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative approximation are presented. The classical model for groundwater flow, in the case of density-independent flow in a uniform homogeneous aquifer is reformulated by replacing the classical derivative by the Riemann-Liouville fractional derivatives approximations. The modified equation is solved via the technique of green function and the variational iteration method.

  1. Wilson loops on Riemann surfaces, Liouville theory and covariantization of the conformal group

    Science.gov (United States)

    Matone, Marco; Pasti, Paolo

    2015-06-01

    The covariantization procedure is usually referred to the translation operator, that is the derivative. Here we introduce a general method to covariantize arbitrary differential operators, such as the ones defining the fundamental group of a given manifold. We focus on the differential operators representing the sl2(ℝ) generators, which in turn, generate, by exponentiation, the two-dimensional conformal transformations. A key point of our construction is the recent result on the closed forms of the Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formula. In particular, our covariantization receipt is quite general. This has a deep consequence since it means that the covariantization of the conformal group is always definite. Our covariantization receipt is quite general and apply in general situations, including AdS/CFT. Here we focus on the projective unitary representations of the fundamental group of a Riemann surface, which may include elliptic points and punctures, introduced in the framework of noncommutative Riemann surfaces. It turns out that the covariantized conformal operators are built in terms of Wilson loops around Poincaré geodesics, implying a deep relationship between gauge theories on Riemann surfaces and Liouville theory.

  3. Dominant modal decomposition method

    2017-03-01

    The paper deals with the automatic decomposition of experimental frequency response functions (FRF's) of mechanical structures. The decomposition of FRF's is based on the Green function representation of free vibratory systems. After the determination of the impulse dynamic subspace, the system matrix is formulated and the poles are calculated directly. By means of the corresponding eigenvectors, the contribution of each element of the impulse dynamic subspace is determined and the sufficient decomposition of the corresponding FRF is carried out. With the presented dominant modal decomposition (DMD) method, the mode shapes, the modal participation vectors and the modal scaling factors are identified using the decomposed FRF's. Analytical example is presented along with experimental case studies taken from machine tool industry.

  5. Spectral proper orthogonal decomposition

    Sieber, Moritz; Paschereit, Christian Oliver

    2015-01-01

    The identification of coherent structures from experimental or numerical data is an essential task when conducting research in fluid dynamics. This typically involves the construction of an empirical mode base that appropriately captures the dominant flow structures. The most prominent candidates are the energy-ranked proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) and the frequency ranked Fourier decomposition and dynamic mode decomposition (DMD). However, these methods fail when the relevant coherent structures occur at low energies or at multiple frequencies, which is often the case. To overcome the deficit of these "rigid" approaches, we propose a new method termed Spectral Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (SPOD). It is based on classical POD and it can be applied to spatially and temporally resolved data. The new method involves an additional temporal constraint that enables a clear separation of phenomena that occur at multiple frequencies and energies. SPOD allows for a continuous shifting from the energetically ...

    This diploma thesis is concerned with functional decomposition $f = g \\circ h$ of polynomials. First an algorithm is described which computes decompositions in polynomial time. This algorithm was originally proposed by Zippel (1991). A bound for the number of minimal collisions is derived. Finally a proof of a conjecture in von zur Gathen, Giesbrecht & Ziegler (2010) is given, which states a classification for a special class of decomposable polynomials.

    内波遥感参数提取是利用遥感影像研究海洋内波的重要手段,通过提取内波的基本参数可以对海洋内波的生成与传播机制进行进一步的研究.提出了利用经验模态分解、小波分解与高阶多项式拟合从光学影像中提取内波半波宽度的方法.经验模态分解与小波分解对内波剖面数据进行尺度分解,根据归一化方差最大来提取内波分量;多项式拟合基于内波剖面的亮暗条纹变化完全由内波调制的假设,对数据进行拟合,并根据一阶导数来提取半波宽度.用南海北部东沙岛附近2004年7月10日的中-巴资源卫星(China-Brazil Earth Resources Satellite,CBERS)影像对方法进行了验证.结果表明,3种方法能较好地提取所需参数,获取的内波半波宽度具有较好的一致性;上述方法在处理非平稳及非线性遥感数据上,具有非常明显的优势.基于一维非线性内波理论,通过提取的内波半波宽度,辅以水深和混合层深度数据,反演了内波的振幅.%Retrieving internal wave parameters from remote sensing data plays an important role in internal wave research. The generation and propagation mechanisms of such waves can be studied using the parameters extracted from remote sensing data. The authors use empirical mode decomposition, wavelet decomposition and high-order polynomial fitting in extracting internal waves' (IWs) half-wave width from optical remote sensing images. With the method of Empirical mode decomposition and wavelet decomposition the remote sensing data is decomposed and the signal of IWs is extracted by the normalized variance of IWs. Polynomial fitting is based on the assumptions that bright and dark stripes completely change within the wave modulation and that the first derivative the half-wave width can be extracted. The three methods have been verified by the image of China-Brazil Earth Resources Satellite (CBERS), which was imaging the northern South China Sea

    We study the dependence between prime numbers and the real and imaginary parts of the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function. The Legendre polynomials and the partial derivatives of the Riemann zeta function are used to investigate the above dependence along with the Riemann hypothesis with physical interpretations. A modified zeta function with finite terms is defined as a new implement for the study of the zeta function and its zeros.

  9. Spectral decomposition of fractional operators and a reflected stable semigroup

    Science.gov (United States)

    Patie, P.; Zhao, Y.

    2017-02-01

    In this paper, we provide the spectral decomposition in Hilbert space of the C0-semigroup P and its adjoint P ˆ having as generator, respectively, the Caputo and the right-sided Riemann-Liouville fractional derivatives of index 1 operators, which are non-local and non-self-adjoint, appear in many recent studies in applied mathematics and also arise as the infinitesimal generators of some substantial processes such as the reflected spectrally negative α-stable process. Our approach relies on intertwining relations that we establish between these semigroups and the semigroup of a Bessel type process whose generator is a self-adjoint second order differential operator. In particular, from this commutation relation, we characterize the positive real axis as the continuous point spectrum of P and provide a power series representation of the corresponding eigenfunctions. We also identify the positive real axis as the residual spectrum of the adjoint operator P ˆ and elucidate its role in the spectral decomposition of these operators. By resorting to the concept of continuous frames, we proceed by investigating the domain of the spectral operators and derive two representations for the heat kernels of these semigroups. As a by-product, we also obtain regularity properties for these latter and also for the solution of the associated Cauchy problem.

    We consider the Riemann problem for relativistic flows of polytropic fluids and find relations for the flow characteristics. Evolution of physical quantities takes especially simple form for the case of cold magnetized plasmas. We find exact explicit analytical solutions for one-dimensional expansion of magnetized plasma into vacuum, valid for arbitrary magnetization. We also consider expansion into cold unmagnetized external medium both for stationary initial conditions and for initially moving plasma, as well as reflection of rarefaction wave from a wall. We also find self-similar structure of three-dimensional magnetized outflows into vacuum, valid close to the plasma-vacuum interface.

  12. New Relativistic Effects in the Dynamics of Nonlinear Hydrodynamical Waves

    CERN Document Server

    Rezzolla, L

    2002-01-01

    In Newtonian and relativistic hydrodynamics the Riemann problem consists of calculating the evolution of a fluid which is initially characterized by two states having different values of uniform rest-mass density, pressure and velocity. When the fluid is allowed to relax, one of three possible wave-patterns is produced, corresponding to the propagation in opposite directions of two nonlinear hydrodynamical waves. New effects emerge in a special relativistic Riemann problem when velocities tangential to the initial discontinuity surface are present. We show that a smooth transition from one wave-pattern to another can be produced by varying the initial tangential velocities while otherwise maintaining the initial states unmodified. These special relativistic effects are produced by the coupling through the relativistic Lorentz factors and do not have a Newtonian counterpart.

  13. Decomposing Nekrasov Decomposition

    Morozov, A

    2015-01-01

    AGT relations imply that the four-point conformal block admits a decomposition into a sum over pairs of Young diagrams of essentially rational Nekrasov functions - this is immediately seen when conformal block is represented in the form of a matrix model. However, the q-deformation of the same block has a deeper decomposition - into a sum over a quadruple of Young diagrams of a product of four topological vertices. We analyze the interplay between these two decompositions, their properties and their generalization to multi-point conformal blocks. In the latter case we explain how Dotsenko-Fateev all-with-all (star) pair "interaction" is reduced to the quiver model nearest-neighbor (chain) one. We give new identities for q-Selberg averages of pairs of generalized Macdonald polynomials. We also translate the slicing invariance of refined topological strings into the language of conformal blocks and interpret it as abelianization of generalized Macdonald polynomials.

    2009-01-01

    We present an algorithm for decomposing a symmetric tensor, of dimension n and order d as a sum of rank-1 symmetric tensors, extending the algorithm of Sylvester devised in 1886 for binary forms. We recall the correspondence between the decomposition of a homogeneous polynomial in n variables of total degree d as a sum of powers of linear forms (Waring's problem), incidence properties on secant varieties of the Veronese Variety and the representation of linear forms as a linear combination of evaluations at distinct points. Then we reformulate Sylvester's approach from the dual point of view. Exploiting this duality, we propose necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of such a decomposition of a given rank, using the properties of Hankel (and quasi-Hankel) matrices, derived from multivariate polynomials and normal form computations. This leads to the resolution of polynomial equations of small degree in non-generic cases. We propose a new algorithm for symmetric tensor decomposition, based on th...

  16. Strongly nonlinear steepening of long interfacial waves

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    N. Zahibo

    2007-06-01

    Full Text Available The transformation of nonlinear long internal waves in a two-layer fluid is studied in the Boussinesq and rigid-lid approximation. Explicit analytic formulation of the evolution equation in terms of the Riemann invariants allows us to obtain analytical results characterizing strongly nonlinear wave steepening, including the spectral evolution. Effects manifesting the action of high nonlinear corrections of the model are highlighted. It is shown, in particular, that the breaking points on the wave profile may shift from the zero-crossing level. The wave steepening happens in a different way if the density jump is placed near the middle of the water bulk: then the wave deformation is almost symmetrical and two phases appear where the wave breaks.

    We present a Mueller matrix decomposition based on the differential formulation of the Mueller calculus. The differential Mueller matrix is obtained from the macroscopic matrix through an eigenanalysis. It is subsequently resolved into the complete set of 16 differential matrices that correspond to the basic types of optical behavior for depolarizing anisotropic media. The method is successfully applied to the polarimetric analysis of several samples. The differential parameters enable one to perform an exhaustive characterization of anisotropy and depolarization. This decomposition is particularly appropriate for studying media in which several polarization effects take place simultaneously. © 2011 Optical Society of America

    With the development of high-rate GPS receivers, precise orbit and processing technology of GPS data, it is possible to observe the high frequency, transient dynamic displacement by GPS. However, it remains a problem as how to mitigate the error such as multipath errors, and random noise aliasing in geophysical signals so as to extract seismic signals, which in turn limits the high-rate GPS and its geophysical applications. In this paper, an approach based on wavelet packets decomposition (WPD) is presented to extract seismic signals through mitigating the multipath error and random noise of dynamic displacement series from high-rate GPS. With the 1 Hz observation data from 19 stations in Southern California Integrated GPS Network (SCIGN) during the Mexico M7. 2 earthquake in 2010, the ground displacement is calculated. Meanwhile, the approach based on WPD is introduced for seismic signal extraction and spectrum analysis. As is shown in results, the approach is accurate and effective in seismic signal extraction to reflect the characteristics of seismic wave propagations and it enjoys an advantage that it does not necessarily involve multiple-day observation.%随着高采样率GPS接收机的出现、高精度的定轨以及数据处理技术的发展,利用GPS观测高频率、瞬态的地震波信号成为可能.但如何消除混叠在地震波信号中的多路径、随机噪声等误差,有效地提取地震波信号,仍然是制约高采样率GPS及其地球物理应用的重要因素.提出一种基于小波包分解的方法,对动态位移序列中的多路径误差进行消除,同时去除高频率随机噪声,提取地震波信号.通过结合SCIGN的19个GPS测站的1Hz采样GPS观测数据,对2010年墨西哥M7.2地震的地震波引起的地表动态位移进行解算,采用小波包分解有效地提取地震波信号并对其进行谱分析.结果表明,该方法提取的地震波信号能较好地反映出地震波的传播及其特性,具有无

    For n>1, let G(n)=\\sigma(n)/(n log log n), where \\sigma(n) is the sum of the divisors of n. We prove that the Riemann Hypothesis is true if and only if 4 is the only composite number N satisfying G(N) \\ge \\max(G(N/p),G(aN)), for all prime factors p of N and all multiples aN of N. The proof uses Robin's and Gronwall's theorems on G(n). An alternate proof of one step depends on two properties of superabundant numbers proved using Alaoglu and Erd\\H{o}s's results.

    Leclair, André

    We apply the S-matrix based finite temperature formalism to nonrelativistic Bose and Fermi gases in 1+1 and 2+1 dimensions. For the (2+1)-dimensional case in the constant scattering length approximation, the free energy is given in terms of Roger's dilogarithm in a way analagous to the thermodynamic Bethe ansatz for the relativistic (1+1)-dimensional case. The 1d fermionic case with a quasiperiodic two-body potential is closely connected with the Riemann hypothesis.

    The paper is concerned with the inverse scattering problem for the Stark operator on the line with a potential from the Schwartz class. In our study of the inverse problem, we use the Riemann-Hilbert formalism. This allows us to overcome the principal technical difficulties which arise in the more traditional approaches based on the Gel’fand-Levitan-Marchenko equations, and indeed solve the problem. We also produce a complete description of the relevant scattering data (which have not been obtained in the previous works on the Stark operator) and establish the bijection between the Schwartz class potentials and the scattering data.

    It is a consequence of the Jacobi Inversion Theorem that a line bundle over a Riemann surface M of genus g has a meromorphic section having at most g poles, or equivalently, the divisor class of a divisor D over M contains a divisor having at most g poles (counting multiplicities). We explore various analogues of these ideas for vector bundles and associated matrix divisors over M. The most explicit results are for the genus 1 case. We also review and improve earlier results concerning the co...

    Dan DAI; Roderick WONG

    2007-01-01

    In this paper, we study the asymptotics of the Krawtchouk polynomials KnN(z;p,q) as the degree n becomes large. Asymptotic expansions are obtained when the ratio of the parameters n/N tends to a limit c ∈ (0, 1) as n →∞. The results are globally valid in one or two regions in the complex z-plane depending on the values of c and p;in particular, they are valid in regions containing the interval on which these polynomials are orthogonal. Our method is based on the Riemann-Hilbert approach introduced by Deift and Zhou.

  5. Riemann--Hilbert problems, matrix orthogonal polynomials and discrete matrix equations with singularity confinement

    CERN Document Server

    Cassatella-Contra, Giovanni A

    2011-01-01

    In this paper matrix orthogonal polynomials in the real line are described in terms of a Riemann--Hilbert problem. This approach provides an easy derivation of discrete equations for the corresponding matrix recursion coefficients. The discrete equation is explicitly derived in the matrix Freud case, associated with matrix quartic potentials. It is shown that, when the initial condition and the measure are simultaneously triangularizable, this matrix discrete equation possesses the singularity confinement property, independently if the solution under consideration is given by recursion coefficients to quartic Freud matrix orthogonal polynomials or not.

    Full Text Available We study the structure of differential equations of one-dimensional dispersive flows into compact Riemann surfaces. These equations geometrically generalize two-sphere valued systems modeling the motion of vortex filament. We define a generalized Hasimoto transform by constructing a good moving frame, and reduce the equation with values in the induced bundle to a complex valued equation which is easy to handle. We also discuss the relationship between our reduction and the theory of linear dispersive partial differential equations.

  7. Generalized Taylor Series Method for Solving Nonlinear Fractional Differential Equations with Modified Riemann-Liouville Derivative

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available We propose an efficient analytic method for solving nonlinear differential equations of fractional order. The fractional derivative is defined in the sense of modified Riemann-Liouville derivative. A new technique for calculating the generalized Taylor series coefficients (also known as “generalized differential transforms,” GDTs of nonlinear functions and a new approach of the generalized Taylor series method (GTSM are presented. This new method offers a simple algorithm for computing GDTs of nonlinear functions and avoids massive computational work that usually arises in the standard method. Several illustrative examples are demonstrated to show effectiveness of the proposed method.

    2010-01-01

    We investigate the horizontal distribution of zeros of the derivative of the Riemann zeta function and compare this to the radial distribution of zeros of the derivative of the characteristic polynomial of a random unitary matrix. Both cases show a surprising bimodal distribution which has yet to be explained. We show by example that the bimodality is a general phenomenon. For the unitary matrix case we prove a conjecture of Mezzadri concerning the leading order behavior, and we show that the same follows from the random matrix conjectures for the zeros of the zeta function.

    2011-01-01

    Shape matching represents a challenging problem in both information engineering and computer science, exhibiting not only a wide spectrum of multimedia applications, but also a deep relation with conformal geometry. After reviewing the theoretical foundations and the practical issues involved in this fashinating subject, we focus on two state-of-the-art approaches relying respectively on local features (landmark points) and on global properties (conformal parameterizations). Finally, we introduce the Teichm\\"uller space of n-pointed Riemann surfaces of genus g into the realm of multimedia, showing that its beautiful geometry provides a natural unified framework for three-dimensional shape matching.

    A homogeneous two-dimensional metric including the degrees of freedom of Teichm\\"uller deformation is developed. The Teichm\\"uller deformation is incorporated by affine stretching of complex structure. According to Yamada's investigation by pinching parameter, concrete formulation for a higher genus Riemann surface can be realized. We will have a homogeneous standard metric including the dynamical degrees of freedom as Teichm\\"uller deformation in a leading order of the pinching parameter, which would be treated as homogeneous anisotropic metric for a double torus universe, which satisfy momentum constraints.

  15. Fractional parts and their relations to the values of the Riemann zeta function

    KAUST Repository

    2017-09-06

    A well-known result, due to Dirichlet and later generalized by de la Vallée–Poussin, expresses a relationship between the sum of fractional parts and the Euler–Mascheroni constant. In this paper, we prove an asymptotic relationship between the summation of the products of fractional parts with powers of integers on the one hand, and the values of the Riemann zeta function, on the other hand. Dirichlet’s classical result falls as a particular case of this more general theorem.

    We derive the leading asymptotic behavior and build a new series representation for the Fredholm determinant of integrable integral operators appearing in the representation of the time and distance dependent correlation functions of integrable models described by a six-vertex R-matrix. This series representation opens a systematic way for the computation of the long-time, long-distance asymptotic expansion for the correlation functions of the aforementioned integrable models away from their free fermion point. Our method builds on a Riemann-Hilbert based analysis. (orig.)

    2016-10-01

    The work in the present manuscript is concerned with the simulation of twodimensional (2D) Riemann problem of gas dynamics. We extend our recently developed higher order compact (HOC) method from one-dimensional (1D) to 2D solver and simulate the problem on a square geometry with different initial conditions. The method is fourth order accurate in space and second order accurate in time. We then compare our results with the available benchmark results. The comparison shows an excellent agreement of our results with the existing ones in the literature. Being a finite difference solver, it is quite straight-forward and simple.

  20. An iterative Riemann solver for systems of hyperbolic conservation law s, with application to hyperelastic solid mechanics

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Miller, Gregory H.

    2003-08-06

    In this paper we present a general iterative method for the solution of the Riemann problem for hyperbolic systems of PDEs. The method is based on the multiple shooting method for free boundary value problems. We demonstrate the method by solving one-dimensional Riemann problems for hyperelastic solid mechanics. Even for conditions representative of routine laboratory conditions and military ballistics, dramatic differences are seen between the exact and approximate Riemann solution. The greatest discrepancy arises from misallocation of energy between compressional and thermal modes by the approximate solver, resulting in nonphysical entropy and temperature estimates. Several pathological conditions arise in common practice, and modifications to the method to handle these are discussed. These include points where genuine nonlinearity is lost, degeneracies, and eigenvector deficiencies that occur upon melting.

  1. Role of Riemann's and Goldbach's hypotheses in the behaviour of complex systems: Introduction to the concept of "Sciances"

    Science.gov (United States)

    Le Méhauté, A.; Tayurskii, D.

    2012-11-01

    The authors have already established a bi univocal correspondence between Riemann zeta functions and dynamic processes under the control of integro-differential operator of non-integer complex order. We recall that the Riemann zeta function can then be related to hyperbolic geodesics whose angles at the boundary are determined by the real part of the power laws that define the Riemann series. It is suggested that Riemann's conjecture can be reduced to a geometrical phase transition with a reduction of the parameter of order resulting from the combination of a pair symmetries associated with a quasi-self similarity of geodetics. The well-known relationship with the set of prime numbers must be considered as the result of the local existence of stationary 'state' in the dynamics. The work is focused on the 'non stationary' behaviour of Riemann zeta function. It is shown that the main characteristic of the dynamics of complex systems may be associated to a hybridizing between a pair of states and/or processes able to give a geometrical status to the concept of the time and equally to the concept of energy. It is based on the mirror properties of complementary zeta function. It is shown also that the set of prime numbers, which controls the transitions between 'states', is the simplest form of the complexity. This analysis suggests the existence of a mathematical relationship between Riemann's and Goldbach's hypothesis. Such relationship would be the base of an extension of the principles of the science for the analysis of the complexity. According to previous proposal we name this extension that enlarges the principles of the science : sciance with 'a'.

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available We obtain the approximate analytical solution for the fractional quadratic Riccati differential equation with the Riemann-Liouville derivative by using the Bernstein polynomials (BPs operational matrices. In this method, we use the operational matrix for fractional integration in the Riemann-Liouville sense. Then by using this matrix and operational matrix of product, we reduce the problem to a system of algebraic equations that can be solved easily. The efficiency and accuracy of the proposed method are illustrated by several examples.

    2010-01-01

    In this paper, we prove a new Wirtinger-type inequality and assuming that the Riemann hypothesis is true we establish a new explicit formula for the gaps between the zeros of the Riemann zeta-function. On the hypothesis that the moments of the Hardy Z-function and its derivatives are correctly predicted we establish new lower bounds for the gaps between the zeros. In particular it is proved that consecutive nontrivial zeros often differ by at least 11.249 times the average spacing.

  4. The Riemann problem method for solving a perturbed nonlinear Schroedinger equation describing pulse propagation in optic fibres

    We used the Riemann problem method with a 3*3 matrix system to find the femtosecond single soliton solution for a perturbed nonlinear Schroedinger equation which describes bright ultrashort pulse propagation in properly tailored monomode optical fibres. Compared with the Gel'fand-Levitan-Marchenko approach, the major advantage of the Riemann problem method is that it provides the general single soliton solution in a simple and compact form. Unlike the standard nonlinear Schroedinger equation, here the single soliton solution exhibits periodic evolution patterns. (author)

    2015-01-01

    We perform a systematic study on the spin decomposition of an electron in QED at one-loop order. It is found that the electron orbital angular momentum defined in Jaffe-Manohar and Ji spin sum rules agrees with each other, and the so-called potential angular momentum vanishes at this order. The calculations are performed in both dimensional regularization and Pauli-Villars regularization for the ultraviolet divergences, and they lead to consistent results. We further investigate the calculations in terms of light-front wave functions, and find a missing contribution from the instantaneous interaction in light-front quantization. This clarifies the confusing issues raised recently in the literature on the spin decomposition of an electron, and will help to consolidate the spin physics program for nucleons in QCD.

  6. Domain Decomposition Methods for Hyperbolic Problems

    Pravir Dutt; Subir Singh Lamba

    2009-04-01

    In this paper a method is developed for solving hyperbolic initial boundary value problems in one space dimension using domain decomposition, which can be extended to problems in several space dimensions. We minimize a functional which is the sum of squares of the 2 norms of the residuals and a term which is the sum of the squares of the 2 norms of the jumps in the function across interdomain boundaries. To make the problem well posed the interdomain boundaries are made to move back and forth at alternate time steps with sufficiently high speed. We construct parallel preconditioners and obtain error estimates for the method. The Schwarz waveform relaxation method is often employed to solve hyperbolic problems using domain decomposition but this technique faces difficulties if the system becomes characteristic at the inter-element boundaries. By making the inter-element boundaries move faster than the fastest wave speed associated with the hyperbolic system we are able to overcome this problem.

    The f-cost of a tree decomposition ({Xi | i e I}, T = (I;F)) for a function f : N -> R+ is defined as EieI f(|Xi|).

  8. Modeling of locally self-similar processes using multifractional Brownian motion of Riemann-Liouville type.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Muniandy, S V; Lim, S C

    2001-04-01

    Fractional Brownian motion (FBM) is widely used in the modeling of phenomena with power spectral density of power-law type. However, FBM has its limitation since it can only describe phenomena with monofractal structure or a uniform degree of irregularity characterized by the constant Holder exponent. For more realistic modeling, it is necessary to take into consideration the local variation of irregularity, with the Holder exponent allowed to vary with time (or space). One way to achieve such a generalization is to extend the standard FBM to multifractional Brownian motion (MBM) indexed by a Holder exponent that is a function of time. This paper proposes an alternative generalization to MBM based on the FBM defined by the Riemann-Liouville type of fractional integral. The local properties of the Riemann-Liouville MBM (RLMBM) are studied and they are found to be similar to that of the standard MBM. A numerical scheme to simulate the locally self-similar sample paths of the RLMBM for various types of time-varying Holder exponents is given. The local scaling exponents are estimated based on the local growth of the variance and the wavelet scalogram methods. Finally, an example of the possible applications of RLMBM in the modeling of multifractal time series is illustrated.

    2009-01-01

    We investigate the dynamics defined by the following set of three coupled first-order ODEs: \\dot{z}_{n}+i \\omega z_{n}=\\frac{g_{n+2}}{z_{n}-z_{n+1}}+\\frac{g_{n+1}}{ z_{n}-z_{n+2}}. It is shown that the system can be reduced to quadratures which can be expressed in terms of elementary functions. Despite the integrable character of the model, the general solution is a multiple-valued function of time (considered as a complex variable), and we investigate the position and nature of its branch points. In the semi-symmetric case (g1 = g2 ≠ g3), for rational values of the coupling constants the system is isochronous and explicit formulae for the period of the solutions can be given. For irrational values, the motions are confined but feature aperiodic motion with sensitive dependence on initial conditions. The system shows a rich dynamical behaviour that can be understood in quantitative detail since a global description of the Riemann surface associated with the solutions can be achieved. The details of the description of the Riemann surface are postponed to a forthcoming publication. This toy model is meant to provide a paradigmatic first step towards understanding a certain novel kind of chaotic behaviour.

  10. Decomposition of semigroup algebras

    Boehm, Janko; Nitsche, Max Joachim

    2011-01-01

    Let A \\subseteq B be cancellative abelian semigroups, and let R be an integral domain. We show that the semigroup ring R[B] can be decomposed, as an R[A]-module, into a direct sum of R[A]-submodules of the quotient ring of R[A]. In the case of a finite extension of positive affine semigroup rings we obtain an algorithm computing the decomposition. When R[A] is a polynomial ring over a field we explain how to compute many ring-theoretic properties of R[B] in terms of this decomposition. In particular we obtain a fast algorithm to compute the Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity of homogeneous semigroup rings. As an application we confirm the Eisenbud-Goto conjecture in a range of new cases. Our algorithms are implemented in the Macaulay2 package MonomialAlgebras.

  11. High-Order Wave Propagation Algorithms for Hyperbolic Systems

    KAUST Repository

    Ketcheson, David I.

    2013-01-22

    We present a finite volume method that is applicable to hyperbolic PDEs including spatially varying and semilinear nonconservative systems. The spatial discretization, like that of the well-known Clawpack software, is based on solving Riemann problems and calculating fluctuations (not fluxes). The implementation employs weighted essentially nonoscillatory reconstruction in space and strong stability preserving Runge--Kutta integration in time. The method can be extended to arbitrarily high order of accuracy and allows a well-balanced implementation for capturing solutions of balance laws near steady state. This well-balancing is achieved through the $f$-wave Riemann solver and a novel wave-slope WENO reconstruction procedure. The wide applicability and advantageous properties of the method are demonstrated through numerical examples, including problems in nonconservative form, problems with spatially varying fluxes, and problems involving near-equilibrium solutions of balance laws.

    1999-07-01

    These course notes, presented at the 30. Von Karman Institute Lecture Series in Computational Fluid Dynamics, give a detailed and through review of upwind differencing methods for two-phase flow models. After recalling some fundamental aspects of two-phase flow modelling, from mixture model to two-fluid models, the mathematical properties of the general 6-equation model are analysed by examining the Eigen-structure of the system, and deriving conditions under which the model can be made hyperbolic. The following chapters are devoted to extensions of state-of-the-art upwind differencing schemes such as Roe's Approximate Riemann Solver or the Characteristic Flux Splitting method to two-phase flow. Non-trivial steps in the construction of such solvers include the linearization, the treatment of non-conservative terms and the construction of a Roe-type matrix on which the numerical dissipation of the schemes is based. Extension of the 1-D models to multi-dimensions in an unstructured finite volume formulation is also described; Finally, numerical results for a variety of test-cases are shown to illustrate the accuracy and robustness of the methods.

    2012-01-01

    The Riemann Hypothesis has been of central interest to mathematicians for a long time and many unsuccessful attempts have been made to either prove or disprove it. Since the Riemann zeta function is defined as a sum of the infinite number of items, in this paper, we look at the Riemann Hypothesis using a new applied approach to infinity allowing one to easily execute numerical computations with various infinite and infinitesimal numbers in accordance with the principle `The part is less than the whole' observed in the physical world around us. The new approach allows one to work with functions and derivatives that can assume not only finite but also infinite and infinitesimal values and this possibility is used to study properties of the Riemann zeta function and the Dirichlet eta function. A new computational approach allowing one to evaluate these functions at certain points is proposed. Numerical examples are given. It is emphasized that different mathematical languages can be used to describe mathematical...

  17. Reduced-order prediction of rogue waves in two-dimensional deep-water waves

    CERN Document Server

    Farazmand, Mohammad

    2016-01-01

    We consider the problem of large wave prediction in two-dimensional water waves. Such waves form due to the synergistic effect of dispersive mixing of smaller wave groups and the action of localized nonlinear wave interactions that leads to focusing. Instead of a direct simulation approach, we rely on the decomposition of the wave field into a discrete set of localized wave groups with optimal length scales and amplitudes. Due to the short-term character of the prediction, these wave groups do not interact and therefore their dynamics can be characterized individually. Using direct numerical simulations of the governing envelope equations we precompute the expected maximum elevation for each of those wave groups. The combination of the wave field decomposition algorithm, which provides information about the statistics of the system, and the precomputed map for the expected wave group elevation, which encodes dynamical information, allows (i) for understanding of how the probability of occurrence of rogue wave...

  18. An Electrostatic Depiction of the Validity of the Riemann Hypothesis and a Formula for the Nth Zero at Large N

    Science.gov (United States)

    Leclair, André

    2013-11-01

    We construct a vector field E from the real and imaginary parts of an entire function ξ(z) which arises in the quantum statistical mechanics of relativistic gases when the spatial dimension d is analytically continued into the complex z plane. This function is built from the Γ and Riemann ζ functions and is known to satisfy the functional identity ξ(z) = ξ(1-z). E satisfies the conditions for a static electric field. The structure of E in the critical strip is determined by its behavior near the Riemann zeros on the critical line ℜ(z) = 1/2, where each zero can be assigned a ⊕ or ⊖ parity, or vorticity, of a related pseudo-magnetic field. Using these properties, we show that a hypothetical Riemann zero that is off the critical line leads to a frustration of this "electric" field. We formulate this frustration more precisely in terms of the potential Φ satisfying E = -∇Φ and construct Φ explicitly. The main outcome of our analysis is a formula for the nth zero on the critical line for large n expressed as the solution of a simple transcendental equation. Riemann's counting formula for the number of zeros on the entire critical strip can be derived from this formula. Our result is much stronger than Riemann's counting formula, since it provides an estimate of the nth zero along the critical line. This provides a simple way to estimate very high zeros to very good accuracy, and we estimate the 10106-th one.

  19. New Horizons in Multidimensional Diffusion: The Lorentz Gas and the Riemann Hypothesis

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dettmann, Carl P.

    2012-01-01

    The Lorentz gas is a billiard model involving a point particle diffusing deterministically in a periodic array of convex scatterers. In the two dimensional finite horizon case, in which all trajectories involve collisions with the scatterers, displacements scaled by the usual diffusive factor sqrt{t} are normally distributed, as shown by Bunimovich and Sinai in 1981. In the infinite horizon case, motion is superdiffusive, however the normal distribution is recovered when scaling by sqrt {tln t}, with an explicit formula for its variance. Here we explore the infinite horizon case in arbitrary dimensions, giving explicit formulas for the mean square displacement, arguing that it differs from the variance of the limiting distribution, making connections with the Riemann Hypothesis in the small scatterer limit, and providing evidence for a critical dimension d=6 beyond which correlation decay exhibits fractional powers. The results are conditional on a number of conjectures, and are corroborated by numerical simulations in up to ten dimensions.

  2. Riemann-Hadamard method for solving a (2+1)-D problem for degenerate hyperbolic equation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Nikolov, Aleksey; Popivanov, Nedyu

    2015-11-01

    We consider a (2+1)-D boundary value problem for degenerate hyperbolic equation, which is closely connected with transonic fluid dynamics. This problem was introduced by Protter in 1954 as a multi-dimensional analogue of the Darboux problem in the plain, which is known to be well-posed. However the (2+1)-D problem is overdetermined with infinitely many conditions necessary for its classical solvability and there exist generalized solutions of this problem with strong singularities. Last years we study the exact asymptotic behavior of such singular solutions. We offer a Riemann-Hadamard method for solving the problem instead of the used until now method of successive approximations for solving an equivalent integral equation. As result, we obtain a more convenient representation of the singular solutions giving more precise results in our investigation.

    2016-01-01

    Hurwitz theory, the study of analytic functions among Riemann surfaces, is a classical field and active research area in algebraic geometry. The subject's interplay between algebra, geometry, topology and analysis is a beautiful example of the interconnectedness of mathematics. This book introduces students to this increasingly important field, covering key topics such as manifolds, monodromy representations and the Hurwitz potential. Designed for undergraduate study, this classroom-tested text includes over 100 exercises to provide motivation for the reader. Also included are short essays by guest writers on how they use Hurwitz theory in their work, which ranges from string theory to non-Archimedean geometry. Whether used in a course or as a self-contained reference for graduate students, this book will provide an exciting glimpse at mathematics beyond the standard university classes.

    In Part I (arXiv:1209.2045) we computed the Stokes data, though not the "connection matrix", for the smooth solutions of the tt*-Toda equations whose existence we established by p.d.e. methods. Here we give an alternative proof of the existence of some of these solutions by solving a Riemann-Hilbert problem. In the process, we compute the connection matrix for all smooth solutions, thus completing the computation of the monodromy data. We also give connection formulae relating the asymptotics at zero and infinity of all smooth solutions, clarifying the region of validity of the formulae established earlier by Tracy and Widom. Finally, for the tt*-Toda equations, we resolve some conjectures of Cecotti and Vafa concerning the positivity of S+S^t (where S is the Stokes matrix) and the unimodularity of the eigenvalues of the monodromy matrix.

  6. Properties of Matrix Orthogonal Polynomials via their Riemann-Hilbert Characterization

    Full Text Available We give a Riemann-Hilbert approach to the theory of matrix orthogonal polynomials. We will focus on the algebraic aspects of the problem, obtaining difference and differential relations satisfied by the corresponding orthogonal polynomials. We will show that in the matrix case there is some extra freedom that allows us to obtain a family of ladder operators, some of them of 0-th order, something that is not possible in the scalar case. The combination of the ladder operators will lead to a family of second-order differential equations satisfied by the orthogonal polynomials, some of them of 0-th and first order, something also impossible in the scalar setting. This shows that the differential properties in the matrix case are much more complicated than in the scalar situation. We will study several examples given in the last years as well as others not considered so far.

  7. Uniform asymptotics for the full moment conjecture of the Riemann zeta function

    2011-01-01

    Conrey, Farmer, Keating, Rubinstein, and Snaith recently conjectured formulas for the full asymptotics of the moments of $L$-functions. In the case of the Riemann zeta function, their conjecture states that the $2k$-th absolute moment of zeta on the critical line is asymptotically given by a certain $2k$-fold residue integral. This residue integral can be expressed as a polynomial of degree $k^2$, whose coefficients are given in exact form by elaborate and complicated formulas. In this article, uniform asymptotics for roughly the first $k$ coefficients of the moment polynomial are derived. Numerical data to support our asymptotic formula are presented. An application to bounding the maximal size of the zeta function is considered.

  8. Combinatorics of lower order terms in the moment conjectures for the Riemann zeta function

    2012-01-01

    Conrey, Farmer, Keating, Rubinstein and Snaith have given a recipe that conjecturally produces, among others, the full moment polynomial for the Riemann zeta function. The leading term of this polynomial is given as a product of a factor explained by arithmetic and a factor explained by combinatorics (or, alternatively, random matrices). We explain how the lower order terms arise, and clarify the dependency of each factor on the exponent $k$ that is considered. We use extensively the theory of symmetric functions and representations of symmetric groups, ideas of Lascoux on manipulations of alphabets, and a key lemma, due in a basic version to Bump and Gamburd. Our main result ends up involving dimensions of partitions, as studied by Olshanski, Regev, Vershik, Ivanov and others.

  9. Differential Galois theory through Riemann-Hilbert correspondence an elementary introduction

    CERN Document Server

    Sauloy, Jacques

    2017-01-01

    Differential Galois theory is an important, fast developing area which appears more and more in graduate courses since it mixes fundamental objects from many different areas of mathematics in a stimulating context. For a long time, the dominant approach, usually called Picard-Vessiot Theory, was purely algebraic. This approach has been extensively developed and is well covered in the literature. An alternative approach consists in tagging algebraic objects with transcendental information which enriches the understanding and brings not only new points of view but also new solutions. It is very powerful and can be applied in situations where the Picard-Vessiot approach is not easily extended. This book offers a hands-on transcendental approach to differential Galois theory, based on the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence. Along the way, it provides a smooth, down-to-earth introduction to algebraic geometry, category theory and tannakian duality. Since the book studies only complex analytic linear differential equat...

    2016-01-01

    It is considered a model of compact Riemann surface in genus two, represented geometrically by two-parametric hyperbolic octagon with an order four automorphism and described algebraically by the corresponding Fuchsian group. Introducing the Fenchel--Nielsen variables, we compute the Weil--Petersson (WP) symplectic two-form for parameter space and analyze the closed isoperimetric orbits of octagons. WP-Area in parameter space and the canonical action--angle variables for the orbits are found. Exploiting the ideas from the loop quantum gravity, we generate relativistic kinematics by the Lorentz boost and quantize WP-area. We treat the evolution in terms of global variables within the "big bounce" concept.

  11. Exact solution of the 1D Riemann problem in Newtonian and relativistic hydrodynamics

    CERN Document Server

    Lora-Clavijo, F D; Guzman, F S; Gonzalez, J A

    2013-01-01

    Some of the most interesting scenarios that can be studied in astrophysics, contain fluids and plasma moving under the influence of strong gravitational fields. To study these problems it is required to implement numerical algorithms robust enough to deal with the equations describing such scenarios, which usually involve hydrodynamical shocks. It is traditional that the first problem a student willing to develop research in this area is to numerically solve the one dimensional Riemann problem, both Newtonian and relativistic. Even a more basic requirement is the construction of the exact solution to this problem in order to verify that the numerical implementations are correct. We describe in this paper the construction of the exact solution and a detailed procedure of its implementation.

    2016-01-01

    We present a simplified variant of the integrand reduction algorithm for multiloop scattering amplitudes in $d = 4 - 2\\epsilon$ dimensions, which exploits the decomposition of the integration momenta in parallel and orthogonal subspaces, $d=d_\\parallel+d_\\perp$, where $d_\\parallel$ is the dimension of the space spanned by the legs of the diagrams. We discuss the advantages of a lighter polynomial division algorithm and how the orthogonality relations for Gegenbauer polynomilas can be suitably used for carrying out the integration of the irreducible monomials, which eliminates spurious integrals. Applications to one- and two-loop integrals, for arbitrary kinematics, are discussed.

    Methods for spectral clustering have been proposed recently which rely on the eigenvalue decomposition of an affinity matrix. In this work it is proposed that the affinity matrix is created based on the elements of a non-parametric density estimator. This matrix is then decomposed to obtain...... posterior probabilities of class membership using an appropriate form of nonnegative matrix factorization. The troublesome selection of hyperparameters such as kernel width and number of clusters can be obtained using standard cross-validation methods as is demonstrated on a number of diverse data sets....

  15. Mode decomposition evolution equations.

    Partial differential equation (PDE) based methods have become some of the most powerful tools for exploring the fundamental problems in signal processing, image processing, computer vision, machine vision and artificial intelligence in the past two decades. The advantages of PDE based approaches are that they can be made fully automatic, robust for the analysis of images, videos and high dimensional data. A fundamental question is whether one can use PDEs to perform all the basic tasks in the image processing. If one can devise PDEs to perform full-scale mode decomposition for signals and images, the modes thus generated would be very useful for secondary processing to meet the needs in various types of signal and image processing. Despite of great progress in PDE based image analysis in the past two decades, the basic roles of PDEs in image/signal analysis are only limited to PDE based low-pass filters, and their applications to noise removal, edge detection, segmentation, etc. At present, it is not clear how to construct PDE based methods for full-scale mode decomposition. The above-mentioned limitation of most current PDE based image/signal processing methods is addressed in the proposed work, in which we introduce a family of mode decomposition evolution equations (MoDEEs) for a vast variety of applications. The MoDEEs are constructed as an extension of a PDE based high-pass filter (Europhys. Lett., 59(6): 814, 2002) by using arbitrarily high order PDE based low-pass filters introduced by Wei (IEEE Signal Process. Lett., 6(7): 165, 1999). The use of arbitrarily high order PDEs is essential to the frequency localization in the mode decomposition. Similar to the wavelet transform, the present MoDEEs have a controllable time-frequency localization and allow a perfect reconstruction of the original function. Therefore, the MoDEE operation is also called a PDE transform. However, modes generated from the present approach are in the spatial or time domain and can be

    2010-01-01

    Nitric oxide in a gaseous stream is converted to nitrogen dioxide using oxidizing species generated through the use of concentrated hydrogen peroxide fed as a monopropellant into a catalyzed thruster assembly. The hydrogen peroxide is preferably stored at stable concentration levels, i.e., approximately 50%-70% by volume, and may be increased in concentration in a continuous process preceding decomposition in the thruster assembly. The exhaust of the thruster assembly, rich in hydroxyl and/or hydroperoxy radicals, may be fed into a stream containing oxidizable components, such as nitric oxide, to facilitate their oxidation.

  17. Towards quantized number theory: spectral operators and an asymmetric criterion for the Riemann hypothesis.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lapidus, Michel L

    2015-08-06

    This research expository article not only contains a survey of earlier work but also contains a main new result, which we first describe. Given c≥0, the spectral operator [Formula: see text] can be thought of intuitively as the operator which sends the geometry onto the spectrum of a fractal string of dimension not exceeding c. Rigorously, it turns out to coincide with a suitable quantization of the Riemann zeta function ζ=ζ(s): a=ζ(∂), where ∂=∂(c) is the infinitesimal shift of the real line acting on the weighted Hilbert space [Formula: see text]. In this paper, we establish a new asymmetric criterion for the Riemann hypothesis (RH), expressed in terms of the invertibility of the spectral operator for all values of the dimension parameter [Formula: see text] (i.e. for all c in the left half of the critical interval (0,1)). This corresponds (conditionally) to a mathematical (and perhaps also, physical) 'phase transition' occurring in the midfractal case when [Formula: see text]. Both the universality and the non-universality of ζ=ζ(s) in the right (resp., left) critical strip [Formula: see text] (resp., [Formula: see text]) play a key role in this context. These new results are presented here. We also briefly discuss earlier joint work on the complex dimensions of fractal strings, and we survey earlier related work of the author with Maier and with Herichi, respectively, in which were established symmetric criteria for the RH, expressed, respectively, in terms of a family of natural inverse spectral problems for fractal strings of Minkowski dimension D∈(0,1), with [Formula: see text], and of the quasi-invertibility of the family of spectral operators [Formula: see text] (with [Formula: see text]).

    2016-01-01

    The accurate approximation of high-dimensional functions is an essential task in uncertainty quantification and many other fields. We propose a new function approximation scheme based on a spectral extension of the tensor-train (TT) decomposition. We first define a functional version of the TT.......e., the “cores”) comprising the functional TT decomposition. This result motivates an approximation scheme employing polynomial approximations of the cores. For functions with appropriate regularity, the resulting spectral tensor-train decomposition combines the favorable dimension-scaling of the TT...... decomposition with the spectral convergence rate of polynomial approximations, yielding efficient and accurate surrogates for high-dimensional functions. To construct these decompositions, we use the sampling algorithm \\tt TT-DMRG-cross to obtain the TT decomposition of tensors resulting from suitable...

  19. MACH: Fast Randomized Tensor Decompositions

    CERN Document Server

    Tsourakakis, Charalampos E

    2009-01-01

    Tensors naturally model many real world processes which generate multi-aspect data. Such processes appear in many different research disciplines, e.g, chemometrics, computer vision, psychometrics and neuroimaging analysis. Tensor decompositions such as the Tucker decomposition are used to analyze multi-aspect data and extract latent factors, which capture the multilinear data structure. Such decompositions are powerful mining tools, for extracting patterns from large data volumes. However, most frequently used algorithms for such decompositions involve the computationally expensive Singular Value Decomposition. In this paper we propose MACH, a new sampling algorithm to compute such decompositions. Our method is of significant practical value for tensor streams, such as environmental monitoring systems, IP traffic matrices over time, where large amounts of data are accumulated and the analysis is computationally intensive but also in "post-mortem" data analysis cases where the tensor does not fit in the availa...

  20. Dynamics of wave fronts and filaments in anisotropic cardiac tissue

    CERN Document Server

    Dierckx, Hans J F M

    2015-01-01

    The heartbeat is mediated between cardiac cells by waves of electrical depolarisation. During cardiac arrhythmias, electrical activity was found to be organised in scroll waves which rotate around a dynamical filament curve. In this thesis, a curved-space approach is used to mathematically capture anisotropy of wave propagation. We derive for the first time the covariant laws of motion for traveling wave fronts and scroll wave filaments in anisotropic excitable media such as cardiac tissue. We show that locally varying anisotropy yields non-zero Riemann tensor components, which may alter the stability of scroll wave filaments. The instability of scroll wave filaments has been linked to transition from ventricular tachycardia to fibrillation.

  1. A Riemann-Hilbert problem for the finite-genus solutions of the KdV equation and its numerical solution

    Science.gov (United States)

    Trogdon, Thomas; Deconinck, Bernard

    2013-05-01

    We derive a Riemann-Hilbert problem satisfied by the Baker-Akhiezer function for the finite-gap solutions of the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation. As usual for Riemann-Hilbert problems associated with solutions of integrable equations, this formulation has the benefit that the space and time dependence appears in an explicit, linear and computable way. We make use of recent advances in the numerical solution of Riemann-Hilbert problems to produce an efficient and uniformly accurate numerical method for computing all periodic and quasi-periodic finite-genus solutions of the KdV equation.

  2. The Riemann zeros as energy levels of a Dirac fermion in a potential built from the prime numbers in Rindler spacetime

    CERN Document Server

    Sierra, German

    2014-01-01

    We construct a Hamiltonian H whose discrete spectrum contains, in a certain limit, the Riemann zeros. H is derived from the action of a massless Dirac fermion living in a domain of Rindler spacetime, in 1+1 dimensions, that has a boundary given by the world line of a uniformly accelerated observer. The action contains a sum of delta function potentials that can be viewed as partially reflecting moving mirrors. An appropriate choice of the accelerations of the mirrors, provide primitive periodic orbits associated to the prime numbers $p$, whose periods, measured by the observer's clock, are log p. Acting on the chiral components of the fermion, H becomes the Berry-Keating Hamiltonian (x p + p x)/2, where x is identified with the Rindler spatial coordinate and p with the conjugate momentum. The delta function potentials give the matching conditions of the fermion wave functions on both sides of the mirrors. There is also a phase shift for the reflection of the fermions at the boundary where the observer sits. T...

  3. Un-selfsimilar Elementary Wave and Global Solutions of a Class of Multi-dimensional Conservation Laws

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    杨小舟

    2005-01-01

    @@ 1 Introduction and Main Results For Riemann problem in n(n ≥ 3) dimensional(n-D) conservation laws, dimension of equations can beonly reduced one dimension by applying self-similar approach, so transformed equations are at least two dimensional (2D) equations which are also very hard although some pioneer works have been done in References [1-3]. Additionally as generalization of Riemann data, n-D Riemann data are set as constant states in different octants under self-silimar transformation,so many complicated cases of wave interacton will happen. So except some symmetric situations that can be reduced to one dimensional cases, there are rare theoretical results for n-D conservation laws.

  4. Rogue waves: Classification, measurement and data analysis, and hyperfast numerical modeling

    Science.gov (United States)

    Osborne, A. R.

    2010-07-01

    The last twenty years has seen the birth and subsequent evolution of a fundamental new idea in nonlinear wave research: Rogue waves, freak waves or extreme events in the wave field dynamics can often be classified as coherent structure solutions of the requisite nonlinear partial differential wave equations (PDEs). Since a large number of generic nonlinear PDEs occur across many branches of physics, the approach is widely applicable to many fields including the dynamics of ocean surface waves, internal waves, plasma waves, acoustic waves, nonlinear optics, solid state physics, geophysical fluid dynamics and turbulence (vortex dynamics and nonlinear waves), just to name a few. The first goal of this paper is to give a classification scheme for solutions of this type using the inverse scattering transform (IST) with periodic boundary conditions. In this context the methods of algebraic geometry give the solutions of particular PDEs in terms of Riemann theta functions. In the classification scheme the Riemann spectrum fully defines the coherent structure solutions and their mutual nonlinear interactions. I discuss three methods for determining the Riemann spectrum: (1) algebraic-geometric loop integrals, (2) Schottky uniformization and (3) the Nakamura-Boyd approach. I give an overview of several nonlinear wave equations and graph some of their coherent structure solutions using theta functions. The second goal is to discuss how theta functions can be used for developing data analysis (nonlinear Fourier) algorithms; nonlinear filtering techniques allow for the extraction of coherent structures from time series. The third goal is to address hyperfast numerical models of nonlinear wave equations (which are thousands of times faster than traditional spectral methods).

    2014-01-01

    We present a new algorithm, named Autonomous Gaussian Decomposition (AGD), for automatically decomposing spectra into Gaussian components. AGD uses derivative spectroscopy and machine learning to provide optimized guesses for the number of Gaussian components in the data, and also their locations, widths, and amplitudes. We test AGD and find that it produces results comparable to human-derived solutions on 21cm absorption spectra from the 21cm SPectral line Observations of Neutral Gas with the EVLA (21-SPONGE) survey. We use AGD with Monte Carlo methods to derive the HI line completeness as a function of peak optical depth and velocity width for the 21-SPONGE data, and also show that the results of AGD are stable against varying observational noise intensity. The autonomy and computational efficiency of the method over traditional manual Gaussian fits allow for truly unbiased comparisons between observations and simulations, and for the ability to scale up and interpret the very large data volumes from the up...

  7. Erbium hydride decomposition kinetics.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Ferrizz, Robert Matthew

    2006-11-01

    Thermal desorption spectroscopy (TDS) is used to study the decomposition kinetics of erbium hydride thin films. The TDS results presented in this report are analyzed quantitatively using Redhead's method to yield kinetic parameters (E{sub A} {approx} 54.2 kcal/mol), which are then utilized to predict hydrogen outgassing in vacuum for a variety of thermal treatments. Interestingly, it was found that the activation energy for desorption can vary by more than 7 kcal/mol (0.30 eV) for seemingly similar samples. In addition, small amounts of less-stable hydrogen were observed for all erbium dihydride films. A detailed explanation of several approaches for analyzing thermal desorption spectra to obtain kinetic information is included as an appendix.

  8. Differentially Private Spatial Decompositions

    Cormode, Graham; Shen, Entong; Srivastava, Divesh; Yu, Ting

    2011-01-01

    Differential privacy has recently emerged as the de facto standard for private data release. This makes it possible to provide strong theoretical guarantees on the privacy and utility of released data. While it is well-known how to release data based on counts and simple functions under this guarantee, it remains to provide general purpose techniques to release different kinds of data. In this paper, we focus on spatial data such as locations and more generally any data that can be indexed by a tree structure. Directly applying existing differential privacy methods to this type of data simply generates noise. Instead, we introduce a new class of "private spatial decompositions": these adapt standard spatial indexing methods such as quadtrees and kd-trees to provide a private description of the data distribution. Equipping such structures with differential privacy requires several steps to ensure that they provide meaningful privacy guarantees. Various primitives, such as choosing splitting points and describi...

    Given a smooth function < 0 we prove a result by Berger, Kazhdan and others that in every conformal class there exists a metric which attains this function as its Gaussian curvature for a compact Riemann surface of genus > 1. We do so by minimizing an appropriate functional using elementary analysis. In particular for a negative constant, this provides an elementary proof of the uniformization theorem for compact Riemann surfaces of genus > 1.

    CERN Document Server

    Balsara, Dinshaw S

    2016-01-01

    The relativistic magnetohydrodynamics (RMHD) set of equations has recently seen increased use in astrophysical computations. Even so, RMHD codes remain fragile. The reconstruction can sometimes yield superluminal velocities in certain parts of the mesh. In this paper we present a reconstruction strategy that overcomes this problem by making a single conservative to primitive transformation per cell followed by higher order WENO reconstruction on a carefully chosen set of primitives that guarantee subluminal reconstruction of the flow variables. For temporal evolution via a predictor step we also present second, third and fourth order accurate ADER methods that keep the velocity subluminal during the predictor step. The RMHD system also requires the magnetic field to be evolved in a divergence-free fashion. In the treatment of classical numerical MHD the analogous issue has seen much recent progress with the advent of multidimensional Riemann solvers. By developing multidimensional Riemann solvers for RMHD, we...

    We give a solution of the Riemann problem in relativistic hydrodynamics in the case of ultrarelativistic equation of state and nonvanishing components of the velocity tangent to the initial discontinuity. Simplicity of the ultrarelativistic equation of state (the pressure being directly proportional to the energy density) allows us to express this solution in analytical terms. The result can be used both to construct and test numerical schemes for relativistic Euler equations in (3+1) dimensions.

    We consider the relation of the multi-component 2D Toda hierarchy with matrix orthogonal and biorthogonal polynomials. The multi-graded Hankel reduction of this hierarchy is considered and the corresponding generalized matrix orthogonal polynomials are studied. In particular for these polynomials we consider the recursion relations, and for rank one weights its relation with multiple orthogonal polynomials of mixed type with a type II normalization and the corresponding link with a Riemann--Hilbert problem.

    According to the conventional theory of solid solutions (the nearest neighbor atomic interaction model),ordering and spinodal decomposition/clustering are mutually exclusive processes.However,it has been found that the coexistence of ordering and spinodal decomposition (COSD) occurs in a large number of alloys.This fact gave a strong challenge to the conventional theory.A statistical investigation revealed that the COSD was closely related to large atomic-siae factors.It was thus proposed that the COSD stemmed from the long-range elastic interactions due to atomic-si?E disparity.In order to verify this idea,the formulism of concentration waves was applied to calculating the elastic interactions.The results proved that long-range atomic elastic interactions promoted both ordering and spinodal decomposition.A possible application of the COSD reaction was proposed,i.e.using this reaction to fabricate high-performance "natural nano-alloys".

  18. The Riemann-Lanczos Problem as an Exterior Differential System with Examples in 4 and 5 Dimensions

    CERN Document Server

    Dolan, P

    2002-01-01

    The key problem of the theory of exterior differential systems (EDS) is to decide whether or not a system is in involution. The special case of EDSs generated by one-forms (Pfaffian systems) can be adequately illustrated by a 2-dimensional example. In 4 dimensions two such problems arise in a natural way, namely, the Riemann-Lanczos and the Weyl-Lanczos problems. It is known from the work of Bampi and Caviglia that the Weyl-Lanczos problem is always in involution in both 4 and 5 dimensions but that the Riemann-Lanczos problem fails to be in involution even for 4 dimensions. However, singular solutions of it can be found. We give examples of singular solutions for the Goedel, Kasner and Debever-Hubaut spacetimes. It is even possible that the singular solution can inherit the spacetime symmetries as in the Debever-Hubaut case. We comment on the Riemann-Lanczos problem in 5 dimensions which is neither in involution nor does it admit a 5-dimensional involution of Vessiot vector fields in the generic case.

It covers topics from classical factor analysis based decomposition and its variants such as Independent Component Analysis, Non-negative Matrix Factorization and Sparse Coding...... methods and clustering problems is derived both in terms of classical point clustering but also in terms of community detection in complex networks. A guiding principle throughout this thesis is the principle of parsimony. Hence, the goal of Unsupervised Learning is here posed as striving for simplicity...... in the decompositions. Thus, it is demonstrated how a wide range of decomposition methods explicitly or implicitly strive to attain this goal. Applications of the derived decompositions are given ranging from multi-media analysis of image and sound data, analysis of biomedical data such as electroencephalography...

    The relationship between Koopman mode decomposition, resolvent mode decomposition, and exact invariant solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations is clarified. The correspondence rests upon the invariance of the system operators under symmetry operations such as spatial translation. The usual interpretation of the Koopman operator is generalized to permit combinations of such operations, in addition to translation in time. This invariance is related to the spectrum of a spatiotemporal Koopman operator, which has a traveling-wave interpretation. The relationship leads to a generalization of dynamic mode decomposition, in which symmetry operations are applied to restrict the dynamic modes to span a subspace subject to those symmetries. The resolvent is interpreted as the mapping between the Koopman modes of the Reynolds stress divergence and the velocity field. It is shown that the singular vectors of the resolvent (the resolvent modes) are the optimal basis in which to express the velocity field Koopman modes where the latter are not a priori known.
