Constraining the growth factor with baryon oscillations

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: The growth factor of linear fluctuations is probably one of the least known quantity in observational cosmology. Here we discuss the constraints that baryon oscillations in galaxy power spectra from future surveys can put on a conveniently parametrized growth factor. We find that spectroscopic surveys of $5000 deg^2$ extending to $z \\approx 3$ could estimate the growth index $\\gamma$ within 0.06; a similar photometric survey would give $\\Delta\\gamma\\approx 0.15$. This test provides an important consistency check for standard cosmological model and could constrain modified gravity models. We discuss the errors and the figure of merit for various combinations of redshift errors and survey size.

Growth factor parametrization in curved space

  HEP - Phenomenology (arXiv)

Summary: The growth rate of matter perturbation and the expansion rate of the Universe can be used to distinguish modified gravity and dark energy models in explaining cosmic acceleration. We explore here the inclusion of spatial curvature into the growth factor. We expand previous results using the approximation $\\Omega_{m}^\\gamma$ and then suggest a new form, $f_a=\\Omega_m^\\gamma+(\\gamma-4/7)\\Omega_k$, as an approximation for the growth factor when the curvature $\\Omega_k$ is not negligible, and where the growth index $\\gamma$ is usually model dependent. The expression recovers the standard results for the curved and flat $\\Lambda$CDM and Dvali-Gabadadze-Porrati models. Using the best fit values of $\\Omega_{m0}$ and $\\Omega_{k0}$ to the expansion/distance measurements from Type Ia supernovae, baryon acoustic oscillation, WMAP5, and $H(z)$ data, we fit the growth index parameter to current growth factor data and obtain $\\gamma_{\\Lambda}(\\Omega_{k} \

Growth factor parametrization and modified gravity

  General Relativity & Quantum Cosmology (arXiv)

Summary: The growth rate of matter perturbation and the expansion rate of the Universe can be used to distinguish modified gravity and dark energy models in explaining the cosmic acceleration. The growth rate is parametrized by the growth index $\\gamma$. We discuss the dependence of $\\gamma$ on the matter energy density $\\Omega$ and its current value $\\Omega_0$ for a more accurate approximation of the growth factor. The observational data, including the data of the growth rate, are used to fit different models. The data strongly disfavor the Dvali-Gabadadze-Porrati model. For the dark energy model with a constant equation of state, we find that $\\Omega_0=0.27\\pm 0.02$ and $w=-0.97\\pm 0.09$. For the $\\Lambda$CDM model, we find that $\\gamma=0.64^{+0.17}_{-0.15}$. For the Dvali-Gabadadze-Porrati model, we find that $\\gamma=0.55^{+0.14}_{-0.13}$.

Growth factor in f(T) gravity

  General Relativity & Quantum Cosmology (arXiv)

Summary: We derive the evolution equation of growth factor for the matter over-dense perturbation in $f(T)$ gravity. For instance, we investigate its behavior in power law model at small redshift and compare it to the prediction of $\\Lambda$CDM and dark energy with the same equation of state in the framework of Einstein general relativity. We find that the perturbation in $f(T)$ gravity grows slower than that in Einstein general relativity if $\\p f/\\p T>0$ due to the effectively weakened gravity.

Neutrino Mass, Dark Energy, and the Linear Growth Factor

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We study the degeneracies between neutrino mass and dark energy as they manifest themselves in cosmological observations. In contradiction to a popular formula in the literature, the suppression of the matter power spectrum caused by massive neutrinos is not just a function of the ratio of neutrino to total mass densities f_nu=Omega_nu/Omega_m, but also each of the densities independently. We also present a fitting formula for the logarithmic growth factor of perturbations in a flat universe, f(z, k;f_nu,w,Omega_DE)= (1-A(k)*Omega_DE*f_nu+B(k)*f_nu^2-C(k)*f_nu^3)*Omega_m(z)^alpha, where alpha depends on the dark energy equation of state parameter w. We then discuss cosmological probes where the f factor directly appears: peculiar velocities, redshift distortion and the Intergrated Sachs-Wolfe effect. We also modify the approximation of Eisenstein & Hu (1999) for the power spectrum of fluctuations in the presence of massive neutrinos and provide a revised code (http://www.star.ucl.ac.uk/~lahav/nu_matter_power.f)

The Confluent System Formalism: II. The Growth History of Objects

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: With the present paper we conclude the presentation of a semianalytical model of hierarchical clustering of bound virialized objects formed by gravitational instability from a random Gaussian field of density fluctuations. In paper I, we introduced the basic tool, the so-called ``confluent system'' formalism, able to follow the evolution of bound virialized objects in the peak model. This was applied to derive the mass function of objects. In the present paper, we calculate other important quantities characterizing the growth history of objects. This model is compared with a similar one obtained by Lacey \\& Cole (1993) following the Press \\& Schechter (1974) approach. The interest of the new modeling presented here is twofold: 1) it is formally better justified as far as peaks are more reasonable seeds of objects than the indetermined regions in the Press \\& Schechter prescription, and 2) it distinguishes between merger and accretion enabling us to unambiguously define the formation and destruction of objects and to estimate growth rates and characteristic times not available in the previous approach.

Archimedean L-factors and Topological Field Theories II

  HEP - Theory (arXiv)

Summary: In the first part of this series of papers we propose a functional integral representation for local Archimedean L-factors given by products of the Gamma-functions. In particular we derive a representation of the Gamma-function as a properly regularized equivariant symplectic volume of an infinite-dimensional space. The corresponding functional integral arises in the description of a type A equivariant topological linear sigma model on a disk. In this paper we provide a functional integral representation of the Archimedean L-factors in terms of a type B topological sigma model on a disk. This representation leads naturally to the classical Euler integral representation of the Gamma-functions. These two integral representations of L-factors in terms of A and B topological sigma models are related by a mirror map. The mirror symmetry in our setting should be considered as a local Archimedean Langlands correspondence between two constructions of local Archimedean L-factors.

Summary: Experimental data of the pion charge form factor are well represented by Poincar\\'e invariant constituent-quark phenomenology depending on two parameters, a confinement scale and an effective constituent--quark mass. Pion states are represented by eigenfunctions of mass and spin operators and of the light-front momenta. An effective current density is generated by the dynamics from a null-plane impulse current density. A simple shape of the wave function depending only on the confinement scale is sufficient.

Dust origin in late-type dwarf galaxies: ISM growth vs. type II supernovae

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We re-evaluate the roles of different dust sources in dust production as a function of metallicity in late-type dwarf galaxies, with the goal of understanding the relation between dust content and metallicity. The dust content ol late-type dwarf galaxies with episodic star formation is studied with a multicomponent model of dust evolution, which includes dust input from AGB stars, type II SNe and dust growth by accretion of atoms in the ISM. Dust growth in the ISM becomes an important dust source in dwarf galaxies, on the timescale of 0.1 - a few Gyrs. It increases the dust-to-gas ratio (DGR) during post-burst evolution, unlike type II SNe, which eject grains to the ISM only during starbursts. Before the dust growth in the ISM overtakes the dust production, AGB stars can be major sources of dust in metal-poor dwarf galaxies. Our models reproduce the relation between the DGR and oxygen abundance, derived from observations of a large sample of dwarf galaxies. The steep decrease in the DGR at low O values is exp...

Three different parametric forms of the growth index are considered respectively and constraints on the model are obtained at both the $1\\sigma$ and $2\\sigma$ confidence levels, by using the current observational data for the growth factor. It is found, for all the three parametric forms of the growth index examined, that the Starobinsky model is consistent with the observations only at the $2\\sigma$ confidence level.

Accurate determination of the free-free Gaunt factor. II - relativistic Gaunt factors

  CERN Preprints

Summary: When modelling an ionised plasma, all spectral synthesis codes need the thermally averaged free-free Gaunt factor defined over a very wide range of parameter space in order to produce an accurate prediction for the spectrum. Until now no data set exists that would meet these needs completely. We have therefore produced a table of relativistic Gaunt factors over a much wider range of parameter space than has ever been produced before. We present tables of the thermally averaged Gaunt factor covering the range log10(gamma^2) = -6 to 10 and log10(u) = -16 to 13 for all atomic numbers Z = 1 through 36. The data were calculated using the relativistic Bethe-Heitler-Elwert (BHE) approximation and were subsequently merged with accurate non-relativistic results in those parts of the parameter space where the BHE approximation is not valid. These data will be incorporated in the next major release of the spectral synthesis code Cloudy. We also produced tables of the frequency integrated Gaunt factor covering the parame...

Properties of the exact analytic solution of the growth factor and its applications

  General Relativity & Quantum Cosmology (arXiv)

Summary: There have been the approximate analytic solution \\cite{Silveria} and several approximate analytic forms \\cite{0508156,Carroll,0303112} of the growth factor $D_{g}$ for the general dark energy models with the constant values of its equation of state $\\omde$ after Heath found the exact integral form of the solution of $D_{g}$ for the Universe including the cosmological constant or the curvature term. Recently, we obtained the exact analytic solutions of the growth factor for both $\\omde = -1$ or $-\\fr{1}{3}$ \\cite{SK1} and the general dark energy models with the constant equation of state $\\omde$ \\cite{SK3} independently. We compare the exact analytic solution of $D_{g}$ with the other well known approximate solutions. We also prove that the analytic solutions for $\\omde = -1$ or $-\\fr{1}{3}$ in Ref. \\cite{SK1} are the specific solutions of the exact solutions of the growth factor for general $\\omde$ models in Ref. \\cite{SK3} even though they look quite different.

Growth of a Vortex Mode during Gravitational Collapse Resulting in Type II Supernova

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We investigate stability of a gravitationally collapsing iron core against non-spherical perturbation. The gravitationally collapsing iron core is approximated by a similarity solution for dynamically collapsing polytropic gas sphere. We find that the similarity solution is unstable against non-spherical perturbations. The perturbation grows in proportion to $ (t - t_0) ^{-\\sigma} $ while the the central density increases in proportion to $ (t - t_0) ^{-2} $. The growth rate is $ \\sigma = 1/3 + \\ell (\\gamma - 4/3) $, where $ \\gamma $ and $ \\ell $ denote the polytropic index and the parameter $ \\ell $ of the spherical harmonics, $ Y_{\\ell} ^m (\\theta, \\phi) $, respectively. The growing perturbation is dominated by vortex motion. Thus it excites global convection during the collapse and may contribute to material mixing in a type II supernova.

Factorization of numbers with Gauss sums: II. Suggestions for implementations with chirped laser pulses

  Quantum Physics (arXiv)

Summary: We propose three implementations of the Gauss sum factorization schemes discussed in part I of this series: (i) a two-photon transition in a multi-level ladder system induced by a chirped laser pulse, (ii) a chirped one-photon transition in a two-level atom with a periodically modulated excited state, and (iii) a linearly chirped one-photon transition driven by a sequence of ultrashort pulses. For each of these quantum systems we show that the excitation probability amplitude is given by an appropriate Gauss sum. We provide rules how to encode the number N to be factored in our system and how to identify the factors of N in the fluorescence signal of the excited state.

Baroclinic Vorticity Production in Protoplanetary Disks; Part II: Vortex Growth and Longevity

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: The factors affecting vortex growth in convectively stable protoplanetary disks are explored using numerical simulations of a two-dimensional anelastic-gas model which includes baroclinic vorticity production and radiative cooling. The baroclinic feedback, where anomalous temperature gradients produce vorticity through the baroclinic term and vortices then reinforce these temperature gradients, is found to be an important process in the rate of growth of vortices in the disk. Factors which strengthen the baroclinic feedback include fast radiative cooling, high thermal diffusion, and large radial temperature gradients in the background temperature. When the baroclinic feedback is sufficiently strong, anticyclonic vortices form from initial random perturbations and maintain their strength for the duration of the simulation, for over 600 orbital periods. Based on both simulations and a simple vortex model, we find that the local angular momentum transport due to a single vortex may be inward or outward, depending its orientation. The global angular momentum transport is highly variable in time, and is sometimes negative and sometimes positive. This result is for an anelastic gas model, and does not include shocks that could affect angular momentum transport in a compressible-gas disk.

Modelling hematopoiesis mediated by growth factors with applications to periodic hematological diseases

  CERN Preprints

Summary: Hematopoiesis is a complex biological process that leads to the production and regulation of blood cells. It is based upon differentiation of stem cells under the action of growth factors. A mathematical approach of this process is proposed to carry out explanation on some blood diseases, characterized by oscillations in circulating blood cells. A system of three differential equations with delay, corresponding to the cell cycle duration, is analyzed. The existence of a Hopf bifurcation for a positive steady-state is obtained through the study of an exponential polynomial characteristic equation with delay-dependent coefficients. Numerical simulations show that long period oscillations can be obtained in this model, corresponding to a destabilization of the feedback regulation between blood cells and growth factors. This stresses the localization of periodic hematological diseases in the feedback loop.

Observational calibration of the projection factor of Cepheids I. The Type II Cepheid kappa Pavonis

  CERN Preprints

Summary: The distances of pulsating stars, in particular Cepheids, are commonly measured using the parallax of pulsation technique. The different versions of this technique combine measurements of the linear diameter variation (from spectroscopy) and the angular diameter variation (from photometry or interferometry) amplitudes, to retrieve the distance in a quasi-geometrical way. However, the linear diameter amplitude is directly proportional to the projection factor (hereafter p-factor), which is used to convert spectroscopic radial velocities (i.e., disk integrated) into pulsating (i.e., photospheric) velocities. The value of the p-factor and its possible dependence on the pulsation period are still widely debated. Our goal is to measure an observational value of the p-factor of the type-II Cepheid kappa Pavonis, whose parallax was measured with an accuracy of 5% using HST/FGS. We used this parallax as a starting point to derive the p-factor of kappa Pav, using the SPIPS technique, which is a robust version of the p...

Distance, Growth Factor, and Dark Energy Constraints from Photometric Baryon Acoustic Oscillation and Weak Lensing Measurements

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: Baryon acoustic oscillations (BAOs) and weak lensing (WL) are complementary probes of cosmology. We explore the distance and growth factor measurements from photometric BAO and WL techniques and investigate the roles of the distance and growth factor in constraining dark energy. We find for WL that the growth factor has a great impact on dark energy constraints but is much less powerful than the distance. Dark energy constraints from WL are concentrated in considerably fewer distance eigenmodes than those from BAO, with the largest contributions from modes that are sensitive to the absolute distance. Both techniques have some well determined distance eigenmodes that are not very sensitive to the dark energy equation of state parameters w_0 and w_a, suggesting that they can accommodate additional parameters for dark energy and for the control of systematic uncertainties. A joint analysis of BAO and WL is far more powerful than either technique alone, and the resulting constraints on the distance and growth factor will be useful for distinguishing dark energy and modified gravity models. The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will yield both WL and angular BAO over a sample of several billion galaxies. Joint LSST BAO and WL can yield 0.5% level precision on ten comoving distances evenly spaced in log(1+z) between redshift 0.3 and 3 with cosmic microwave background priors from Planck. In addition, since the angular diameter distance, which directly affects the observables, is linked to the comoving distance solely by the curvature radius in the Friedmann-Robertson-Walker metric solution, LSST can achieve a pure metric constraint of 0.017 on the mean curvature parameter Omega_k of the universe simultaneously with the constraints on the comoving distances.

The growth of galactic bulges through mergers in LCDM haloes revisited. II. Morphological mix evolution

  CERN Preprints

Summary: The mass aggregation and merger histories of present-day distinct haloes selected from the cosmological Millennium Simulations I and II are mapped into stellar mass aggregation and galaxy merger histories of central galaxies by using empirical stellar-to-halo and stellar-to-gas mass relations. The growth of bulges driven by the galaxy mergers/interactions is calculated using analytical recipes. The predicted bulge demographics at redshift z~0 is consistent with observations (Zavala+2012). Here we present the evolution of the morphological mix (traced by the bulge-to-total mass ratio, B/T) as a function of mass up to z=3. This mix remains qualitatively the same up to z~1: B/T0.45 at large masses. At z>1, the fractions of disc-dominated and bulgeless galaxies increase strongly, and by z~2 the era of pure disc galaxies is reached. Bulge-dominated galaxies acquire such a morphology, and most of their mass, following a downsizing trend. Since our results are consistent with several recent observational studies of ...

Damping of the baryon acoustic oscillations in the matter power spectrum as a probe of the growth factor

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We investigate the damping of the baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO) signature in the matter power spectrum due to the quasi-nonlinear clustering of density perturbations. On the basis of the third order perturbation theory, we construct a fitting formula of the damping in an analytic way. This demonstrates that the damping is closely related with the growth factor and the amplitude of the matter power spectrum. Then, we investigate the feasibility of constraining the growth factor through a measurement of the damping of the BAO signature. An extension of our formula including higher order corrections of density perturbations is also discussed.

Summary: A theoretical model based on the D4 Lie Algebra and Hermitian Symmetric Spaces D5 / D4xU(1) and E6 / D5xU(1) allows calculation of ratios of tree-level particle masses (quark masses being constituent masses): Me-neutrino = Mmu-neutrino = Mtau-neutrino = 0 Me = 0.5110 MeV (assumed); Md = Mu = 312.8 MeV; Mmu = 104.8 MeV; Ms = 625 MeV; Mc = 2.09 GeV; Mtau = 1.88 GeV; Mb = 5.63 GeV; Mt = 130 GeV; W+/- mass = 80.326 GeV; Z0 mass = 91.862 GeV; Higgs mass = 145.8 GeV; Higgs VEV = 252.5 GeV; and ratios of force strength constants: (Ggravity)(Mproton)2 = 5 x 10-39 (asssumed); EM fine structure constant = 1/137.03608; Gfermi = (Gweak)(Mproton)2 = 1.02 x 10-5; color force strength = 0.6286 (at 0.245 GeV). With Nonperturbative QCD etc taken into account the color force strength = 0.123 (at 91 GeV). Fermilab (1994) says that Mt = about 170 GeV but I say (1984) that Mt = about 130 GeV. The theoretical Lagrangian is based on the structure of the real Cl(1,7) Clifford algebra which, through 8-fold periodicity, may produce a real Hyperfinite II1 von Neumann Algebra factor.

Nucleation and growth in one dimension, part II: Application to DNA replication kinetics

  Condensed Matter (arXiv)

Summary: Inspired by recent experiments on DNA replication, we apply a one-dimensional nucleation-and-growth model to DNA-replication kinetics, focusing on how to extract the time-dependent nucleation rate I(t) and growth speed v from data. We discuss generic experimental problems, namely spatial inhomogeneity, measurement noise, and finite-size effects. After evaluating how each of these affects the measurements of I(t) and v, we give guidelines for the design of experiments. These ideas are then discussed in the context of the DNA-replication experiments.

Dark Matter Halo Growth II: Diffuse Accretion and its Environmental Dependence

  CERN Preprints

Summary: Dark matter haloes in Lambda CDM simulations grow by mergers with other haloes as well as accretion of "diffuse" non-halo material. We quantify the mass growth rates via these two processes, dM_mer/dt and dM_dif/dt, and their dependence on halo environment using the ~500,000 haloes in the Millennium simulation. Adopting a local mass density parameter as a measure of halo environment, we find the two rates show strong but opposite environmental dependence, with mergers playing an increasingly important role for halo growths in overdense regions and diffuse accretion dominating growth in voids. This behaviour is independent of the mass cuts used to define haloes vs non-haloes. For galaxy-scale haloes, these two opposite correlations largely cancel out, but a weak environmental dependence remains that results in a slightly lower mean total growth rate, and hence an earlier mean formation redshift, for haloes in denser regions. The mean formation redshift of the ~5000 cluster-mass haloes, on the other hand, appea...

A Generalized Preferential Attachment Model for Business Firms Growth Rates: II. Mathematical Treatment

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We present a preferential attachment growth model to obtain the distribution $P(K)$ of number of units $K$ in the classes which may represent business firms or other socio-economic entities. We found that $P(K)$ is described in its central part by a power law with an exponent $\\phi=2+b/(1-b)$ which depends on the probability of entry of new classes, $b$. In a particular problem of city population this distribution is equivalent to the well known Zipf law. In the absence of the new classes entry, the distribution $P(K)$ is exponential. Using analytical form of $P(K)$ and assuming proportional growth for units, we derive $P(g)$, the distribution of business firm growth rates. The model predicts that $P(g)$ has a Laplacian cusp in the central part and asymptotic power-law tails with an exponent $\\zeta=3$. We test the analytical expressions derived using heuristic arguments by simulations. The model might also explain the size-variance relationship of the firm growth rates.

SMBH growth parameters in the early Universe of Millennium and Millennium-II simulations

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We make BH merger trees from Millennium and Millennium-II Simulations to find under what conditions 10^9Msun SMBH can form by redshift z=7. In order to exploit both: large box size in the Millennium Simulation; and large mass resolution in the Millennium-II Simulation, we develop a method to combine these two simulations together, and use the Millennium-II merger trees to predict the BH seeds to be used in the Millennium merger trees. We run multiple semi-analytical simulations where SMBHs grow through mergers and episodes of gas accretion triggered by major mergers. As a constraint, we use observed BH mass function at redshift z=6. We find that in the light of the recent observations of moderate super-Eddington accretion, low mass seeds (100Msun) could be the progenitors of high redshift SMBHs (z~7), as long as the accretion during the accretion episodes is moderately super-Eddington, where f_Edd=3.7 is the effective Eddington ratio averaged over 50 Myr.

Growth of galactic bulges by mergers. II. Low-density satellites

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: Satellite accretion events have been invoked for mimicking the internal secular evolutionary processes of bulge growth. However, N-body simulations of satellite accretions have paid little attention to the evolution of bulge photometric parameters, to the processes driving this evolution, and to the consistency of this evolution with observations. We want to investigate whether satellite accretions indeed drive the growth of bulges, and whether they are consistent with global scaling relations of bulges and discs. We perform N-body models of the accretion of satellites onto disc galaxies. A Tully-Fisher (M \\propto V_{rot}^ {alpha_TF}) scaling between primary and satellite ensures that density ratios, critical to the outcome of the accretion, are realistic. We carry out a full structural, kinematic and dynamical analysis of the evolution of the bulge mass, bulge central concentration, and bulge-to-disc scaling relations. The remnants of the accretion have bulge-disc structure. Both the bulge-to-disc ratio (B/D) and the Sersic index (n) of the remnant bulge increase as a result of the accretion, with moderate final bulge Sersic indices: n = 1.0 to 1.9. Bulge growth occurs no matter the fate of the secondary, which fully disrupts for alpha_TF=3 and partially survives to the remnant center for alpha_TF = 3.5 or 4. Global structural parameters evolve following trends similar to observations. We show that the dominant mechanism for bulge growth is the inward flow of material from the disc to the bulge region during the satellite decay. The models confirm that the growth of the bulge out of disc material, a central ingredient of secular evolution models, may be triggered externally through satellite accretion.

This result holds more generally for the observation points located along any space-like path in the space-time plane. We also obtain the corresponding results for the discrete time TASEP (totally asymmetric simple exclusion process) with parallel update.

Large time asymptotics of growth models on space-like paths II: PNG and parallel TASEP

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We consider the polynuclear growth (PNG) model in 1+1 dimension with flat initial condition and no extra constraints. The joint distributions of surface height at finitely many points at a fixed time moment are given as marginals of a signed determinantal point process. The long time scaling limit of the surface height is shown to coincide with the Airy_1 process. This result holds more generally for the observation points located along any space-like path in the space-time plane. We also obtain the corresponding results for the discrete time TASEP (totally asymmetric simple exclusion process) with parallel update.

The BOSS-WiggleZ overlap region II: dependence of cosmic growth on galaxy type

  CERN Preprints

Summary: The anisotropic galaxy 2-point correlation function (2PCF) allows measurement of the growth of large-scale structures from the effect of peculiar velocities on the clustering pattern. We present new measurements of the auto- and cross- correlation function multipoles of 69,180 WiggleZ and 46,380 BOSS-CMASS galaxies sharing an overlapping volume of ~0.2 (Gpc/h)^3. Analysing the redshift-space distortions (RSD) of galaxy 2-point statistics for these two galaxy tracers, we test for systematic errors in the modelling depending on galaxy type and investigate potential improvements in cosmological constraints. We build a large number of mock galaxy catalogues to examine the limits of different RSD models in terms of fitting scales and galaxy type, and to study the covariance of the measurements when performing joint fits. For the galaxy data, fitting the monopole and quadrupole of the WiggleZ 2PCF on scales 24growth rate $f\\sigma_8$(z=0.54)=0.409$\\pm$0.059,...

The outcome of protoplanetary dust growth: pebbles, boulders, or planetesimals? II. Introducing the bouncing barrier

  CERN Preprints

Summary: The sticking of micron sized dust particles due to surface forces in circumstellar disks is the first stage in the production of asteroids and planets. The key ingredients that drive this process are the relative velocity between the dust particles in this environment and the complex physics of dust aggregate collisions. Here we present the results of a collision model, which is based on laboratory experiments of these aggregates. We investigate the maximum aggregate size and mass that can be reached by coagulation in protoplanetary disks. We model the growth of dust aggregates at 1 AU at the midplane at three different gas densities. We find that the evolution of the dust does not follow the previously assumed growth-fragmentation cycles. Catastrophic fragmentation hardly occurs in the three disk models. Furthermore we see long lived, quasi-steady states in the distribution function of the aggregates due to bouncing. We explore how the mass and the porosity change upon varying the turbulence parameter and by...

Population statistics of beamed sources. II: Evaluation of Doppler factor estimates

  CERN Preprints

Summary: In a companion paper we presented a statistical model for the blazar population, consisting of distributions for the unbeamed radio luminosity function and the Lorentz factor distribution of each of the BL Lac and Flat Spectrum Radio Quasar (FSRQ) classes. Our model has been optimized so that it reproduces the MOJAVE distributions of apparent speeds and redshifts when the appropriate flux limit is applied and a uniform distribution of jet viewing angles is assumed for the population. Here we use this model to predict the Doppler factor distribution for various flux-limited samples for which Doppler factors have been estimated in a variety of ways (equipartition, variability + equipartition, inverse Compton dominance) on a blazar-by-blazar basis. By comparing the simulated and data-estimated Doppler factor distributions in each case, we evaluate the different methods of estimating blazar Doppler factors. We find that the variability Doppler factors assuming equipartition are the ones in the best agreement with...

Strange and singlet form factors of the nucleon: Predictions for G0, A4, and HAPPEX-II experiments

  HEP - Phenomenology (arXiv)

Summary: We investigate the strange and flavor-singlet electric and magnetic form factors of the nucleon within the framework of the SU(3) chiral quark-soliton model. Isospin symmetry is assumed and the symmetry-conserving SU(3) quantization is employed, rotational and strange quark mass corrections being included. For the experiments G0, A4, and HAPPEX-II we predict the quantities $G^{0}_E + \\beta G^{0}_M$ and $G^{\\rm s}_E + \\beta G^{\\rm s}_M$. The dependence of the results on the parameters of the model and the treatment of the Yukawa asymptotic behavior of the soliton are investigated.

On The Structure Of The Chan-Paton Factors For D-Branes In Type II Orientifolds

  HEP - Theory (arXiv)

Summary: We determine the structure of the Chan-Paton factors of the open strings ending on space filling D-branes in Type II orientifolds. Through the analysis, we obtain a rule concerning possible distribution of O-plane types. The result is applied to classify the topology of D-branes in terms of Fredholm operators and K-theory, deriving a proposal made earlier and extending it to more general cases. It is also applied to compactifications with N=1 supersymmetry in four-dimensions. We adapt and develop the language of category in this context, and use it to describe some decay channels.

Relativistic Thermal Bremsstrahlung Gaunt Factor for the Intracluster Plasma. II. Heavy Elements

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We calculate the relativistic thermal bremsstrahlung Gaunt factor for the high-temperature plasma which exists in clusters of galaxies. We calculate the Gaunt factor by employing the Bethe-Heitler cross section corrected by the Elwert factor. The calculations in this paper are made for the fully ionized plasma for the following cases: Z = 10 (Ne), 12 (Mg), 14 (Si), 16 (S), 26 (Fe). We also calculate the Gaunt factor by using the Coulomb-distorted wave functions for nonrelativistic electrons following the method of Karzas and Latter. By comparing the Gaunt factors calculated by these two different methods, we carefully assess the accuracy of the calculation. We present the numerical results in the form of tables.

II_{\\infty} Factors and M-theory in Asymptotically Flat Space-Time

Summary: I discuss a formulation of M-theory at null infinity, which is based on general principles of holographic space-time, and is manifestly covariant. The construction utilizes a certain Type II Von Neumann algebra, which provides a kinematic framework, alternative to Fock Space, for describing the scattering states of eleven dimensional asymptotically flat M-theory. The construction provides a greatly clarified statement of the connection between SUSY and holography. I make preliminary remarks about dynamical equations for the S-matrix, and compactifications.

Clumping factors of HII, HeII and HeIII

  CERN Preprints

Summary: Estimating the intergalactic medium ionization level of a region needs proper treatment of the reionization process for a large representative volume of the universe. The clumping factor, a parameter which accounts for the effect of recombinations in unresolved, small-scale structures, aids in achieving the required accuracy for the reionization history even in simulations with low spatial resolution. In this paper, we study for the first time the redshift evolution of clumping factors of different ionized species of H and He in a small but very high resolution simulation of the reionization process. We investigate the dependence of the value and redshift evolution of clumping factors on their definition, the ionization level of the gas, the grid resolution, box size and mean dimensionless density of the simulations.

High resolution spectroscopy for Cepheids distance determination. II. A period- projection factor relation

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: The projection factor is a key quantity for the interferometric Baade-Wesselink (hereafter IBW) and surface-brightness (hereafter SB) methods of determining the distance of Cepheids. Indeed, it allows a consistent combination of angular and linear diameters of the star. We aim to determine consistent projection factors that include the dynamical structure of the Cepheids' atmosphere. Methods. Hydrodynamical models of delta Cep and l Car have been used to validate a spectroscopic method of determining the projection factor. This method, based on the amplitude of the radial velocity curve, is applied to eight stars observed with the HARPS spectrometer. The projection factor is divided into three sub-concepts : (1) a geometrical effect, (2) the velocity gradient within the atmosphere, and (3) the relative motion of the "optical" pulsating photosphere compared to the corresponding mass elements (hereafter fo-g). Both, (1) and (3) are deduced from geometrical and hydrodynamical models, respectively, while (2) is derived directly from observations. The Fe I 4896.439 A line is found to be the best one to use in the context of IBW and SB methods. A coherent and consistent period-projection factor relation (hereafter Pp relation) is derived for this specific spectral line: p = [0.064 +- 0.020] log P + [1.376 +- 0.023]. This procedure is then extended to derive dynamic projection factors for any spectral line of any Cepheid. This Pp relation is an important tool for removing bias in the calibration of the period-luminosity relation of Cepheids. Moreover, it reveals a new physical quantity fo-g to investigate in the near future.

Molecular line intensities as measures of cloud masses - II. Conversion factors for specific galaxy types

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We present theoretically-established values of the CO-to-H2 and C-to-H2 conversion factors that may be used to estimate the gas masses of external galaxies. We consider four distinct galaxy types, represented by M51, NGC 6946, M82 and SMC N27. The physical parameters that best represent the conditions within the molecular clouds in each of the galaxy types are estimated using a chi^2 analysis of several observed atomic fine structure and CO rotational lines. This analysis is explored over a wide range of density, radiation field, extinction, and other relevant parameters. Using these estimated physical conditions in methods that we have previously established, CO-to-H2 conversion factors are then computed for CO transitions up to J=9-8. For the conventional CO(1-0) transition, the computed conversion factor varies significantly below and above the canonical value for the Milky Way in the four galaxy types considered. Since atomic carbon emission is now frequently used as a probe of external galaxies, we also present, for the first time, the C-to-H2 conversion factor for this emission in the four galaxy types considered.

One-loop leading logarithms in electroweak radiative corrections: II. Factorization of collinear singularities

  HEP - Phenomenology (arXiv)

Summary: We discuss the evaluation of the collinear single-logarithmic contributions to virtual electroweak corrections at high energies. More precisely, we proof the factorization of the mass singularities originating from loop diagrams involving collinear virtual gauge bosons coupled to external legs. We discuss, in particular, processes involving external longitudinal gauge bosons, which are treated using the Goldstone-boson equivalence theorem. The proof of factorization is performed within the 't Hooft--Feynman gauge at one-loop order and applies to arbitrary electroweak processes that are not mass-suppressed at high energies. As basic ingredient we use Ward identities for Green functions with arbitrary external particles involving a gauge boson collinear to one of these. The Ward identities are derived from the BRS invariance of the spontaneously broken electroweak gauge theory.

We discuss the predictions for the survival of the rapidity gaps for exclusive Higgs production at the LHC.

Jump-Diffusion Risk-Sensitive Asset Management II: Jump-Diffusion Factor Model

  CERN Preprints

Summary: In this article we extend earlier work on the jump-diffusion risk-sensitive asset management problem [SIAM J. Fin. Math. (2011) 22-54] by allowing jumps in both the factor process and the asset prices, as well as stochastic volatility and investment constraints. In this case, the HJB equation is a partial integro-differential equation (PIDE). By combining viscosity solutions with a change of notation, a policy improvement argument and classical results on parabolic PDEs we prove that the HJB PIDE admits a unique smooth solution. A verification theorem concludes the resolution of this problem.

Modeling CO Emission: II. The Physical Characteristics that Determine the X factor in Galactic Molecular Clouds

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We investigate how the X factor, the ratio of H_2 column density (NH2) to velocity-integrated CO intensity (W), is determined by the physical properties of gas in model molecular clouds (MCs). We perform radiative transfer calculations on chemical-MHD models to compute X. Using integrated NH2 and W reproduces the limited range in X found in observations, resulting in a mean value X=2\\times10^20 s/cm^2/K^1/km^1 from the Galactic MC model. However, in limited velocity intervals, X can take on a much larger range due to CO line saturation. Thus, X strongly depends on both the range in gas velocities and volume densities. The temperature (T) variations within individual MCs do not strongly affect X, as dense gas contributes most to setting X. For fixed velocity and density structure, gas with higher T has higher W, yielding X ~ T^-1/2 for T~20-100 K. We demonstrate that the linewidth-size scaling relation does not influence the X factor - only the range in velocities is important. Clouds with larger linewidths, r...

Relativistic Thermal Bremsstrahlung Gaunt Factor for the Intracluster Plasma. II. Analytic Fitting Formulae

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We present accurate analytic fitting formulae which summarize the results of the recent calculation by Nozawa, Itoh and Kohyama on the relativistic thermal bremsstrahlung Gaunt factor for the intracluster plasma. The fitting is carried out for Z = 1 to 28, 6.0 < log T < 8.5, -4.0 < log (omega/kT) < 1.0, where Z is the charge number of the ion, T is the temperature, and omega is the angular frequency of the emitted photon. The present analytic fitting formulae will be useful for the analysis of the X-ray emission which comes from the intracluster plasma as well as the other X-ray sources.

Fourier Theory on the Complex Plane II: Weak Convergence, Classification and Factorization of Singularities

  Mathematical Physics (arXiv)

Summary: The convergence of DP Fourier series which are neither strongly convergent nor strongly divergent is discussed in terms of the Taylor series of the corresponding inner analytic functions. These are the cases in which the maximum disk of convergence of the Taylor series of the inner analytic function is the open unit disk. An essentially complete classification, in terms of the singularity structure of the corresponding inner analytic functions, of the modes of convergence of a large class of DP Fourier series, is established. Given a weakly convergent Fourier series of a DP real function, it is shown how to generate from it other expressions involving trigonometric series, that converge to that same function, but with much better convergence characteristics. This is done by a procedure of factoring out the singularities of the corresponding inner analytic function, and works even for divergent Fourier series. This can be interpreted as a resummation technique, which is firmly anchored by the underlying analytic structure.

We show in particular that the spectrum and eigenstates of the antiperiodic transfer matrix are completely characterized by a system of discrete equations. We prove the existence of different reformulations of this characterization in terms of functional equations of Baxter's type. We notably consider the homogeneous functional $T$-$Q$ equation which is the continuous analog of the aforementioned discrete system and show, in the case of a model with an even number of sites, that the complete spectrum and eigenstates of the antiperiodic transfer matrix can equivalently be described in terms of a particular class of its $Q$-solutions, hence leading to a complete system of Bethe equations. Finally, we compute the form factors of local operators for which we obtain determinant representations in finite volume.

Direct Numerical Simulation of Reionization II: Recombinations, Clumping Factors, and the Photon Budget for Reionization

  CERN Preprints

Summary: In this first of several application papers, we investigate the mechanics of reionization from stellar sources in high-z galaxies, the utility of various clumping factors on estimating the recombination time in the IGM, and the photon budget required to achieve reionization. We test the accuracy of the static and time-dependent models of Madau et al. as predictors of reionization completion/maintenance. We simulate a WMAP7 LCDM cosmological model in a 20 Mpc comoving cube with 800^3 uniform fluid cells and dark matter particles. By tuning our star formation to approximately match the observed star formation rate density and luminosity function, we created a fully coupled radiation-hydro realization of H reionization which begins to ionize at z~10 and completes at z~5.8. We find that roughly 2 ionizing photons per H atom are required to convert the neutral IGM to a highly ionized state, which supports the "photon starved" scenario discussed by Bolton & Haehnelt. The events during reionization that lead to ...

Characterization of Cyclic and Separating Vectors and Application to an Inverse Problem in Modular Theory, II. Semifinite Factors

  Mathematical Physics (arXiv)

Summary: This paper generalizes the results obtained in an earlier paper (math.OA/0003087) for finite factors to infinite but still semifinite factors. First we give a characterization of cyclic and separating vectors for infinite semifinite factors in terms of operators associated with this vector and being affiliated with the factor. Further we show how this operator generates the modular objects of the given cyclic and separating vector generalizing an idea of Kadison and Ringrose. With the help of these results we can show that the second simple class of solutions for the inverse problem constructed in math.OA/0003087 never exists in infinite semifinite factors. Finally we give a classification of the solutions of the inverse problem in the case of modular operators having pure point spectrum, completely analoguous to the finite case.

Migration and Growth of Protoplanetary Embryos II: Emergence of Proto-Gas-Giants Cores versus Super Earths' Progenitor

  CERN Preprints

Summary: Nearly $15-20%$ of solar type stars contain one or more gas giant planet. According to the core-accretion scenario, the acquisition of their gaseous envelope must be preceded by the formation of super-critical cores with masses ten times or larger than that of the Earth. It is natural to link the formation probability of gas giant planets with the supply of gas and solid in their natal disks. However, a much richer population of super Earths suggests that 1) there is no shortage of planetary building-block material, 2) gas giants' growth barrier is probably associated with whether they can merge into super-critical cores, and 3) super Earths are probably failed cores which did not attain sufficient mass to initiate efficient accretion of gas before it is severely depleted. Here we construct a model based on the hypothesis that protoplanetary embryos migrated extensively before they were assembled into bona fide planets. We construct a Hermite-Embryo code based on a unified viscous-irradiation disk model and a...

Charged pion form factor between Q^2=0.60 and 2.45 GeV^2. II. Determination of, and results for, the pion form factor

  Nuclear Experiment (arXiv)

Summary: The charged pion form factor, Fpi(Q^2), is an important quantity which can be used to advance our knowledge of hadronic structure. However, the extraction of Fpi from data requires a model of the 1H(e,e'pi+)n reaction, and thus is inherently model dependent. Therefore, a detailed description of the extraction of the charged pion form factor from electroproduction data obtained recently at Jefferson Lab is presented, with particular focus given to the dominant uncertainties in this procedure. Results for Fpi are presented for Q^2=0.60-2.45 GeV^2. Above Q^2=1.5 GeV^2, the Fpi values are systematically below the monopole parameterization that describes the low Q^2 data used to determine the pion charge radius. The pion form factor can be calculated in a wide variety of theoretical approaches, and the experimental results are compared to a number of calculations. This comparison is helpful in understanding the role of soft versus hard contributions to hadronic structure in the intermediate Q^2 regime.

On the Assumption of Initial Factorization in the Master Equation for Weakly Coupled Systems II: Solvable Models

  Quantum Physics (arXiv)

Summary: We analyze some solvable models of a quantum mechanical system in interaction with a reservoir when the initial state is not factorized. We apply Nakajima-Zwanzig's projection method by choosing a reference state of the reservoir endowed with the mixing property. In van Hove's limit, the dynamics is described in terms of a master equation. We observe that Markovianity becomes a valid approximation for timescales that depend both on the form factors of the interaction and on the observables of the reservoir that can be measured.

Spherical Hartree-Fock calculations with linear momentum projection before the variation.Part II: Spectral functions and spectroscopic factors

  Nuclear Theory (arXiv)

Summary: The hole--spectral functions and from these the spectroscopic factors have been calculated in an Galilei--invariant way for the ground state wave functions resulting from spherical Hartree--Fock calculations with projection onto zero total linear momentum before the variation for the nuclei 4He, 12C, 16O, 28Si, 32S and 40Ca. The results are compared to those of the conventional approach which uses the ground states resulting from usual spherical Hartree--Fock calculations subtracting the kinetic energy of the center of mass motion before the variation and to the results obtained analytically with oscillator occupations.

Large-scale growth evolution in the Szekeres inhomogeneous cosmological models with comparison to growth data

  General Relativity & Quantum Cosmology (arXiv)

Summary: We use the Szekeres inhomogeneous cosmological models to study the growth of large-scale structure in the universe including nonzero spatial curvature and a cosmological constant. In particular, we use the Goode and Wainwright formulation, as in this form the models can be considered to represent exact nonlinear perturbations of an averaged background. We identify a density contrast in both classes I and II of the models, for which we derive growth evolution equations. By including Lambda, the time evolution of the density contrast as well as kinematic quantities can be tracked through the matter- and Lambda-dominated cosmic eras up to the present and into the future. In various models of class I and class II, the growth rate is found to be stronger than that of the LCDM cosmology, and it is suppressed at later times due to the presence of Lambda. We find that there are Szekeres models able to provide a growth history similar to that of LCDM while requiring less matter content and nonzero curvature, which speaks to the importance of including the effects of large-scale inhomogeneities in analyzing the growth of large-scale structure. Using data for the growth factor f from redshift space distortions and the Lyman-alpha forest, we obtain best fit parameters for class II models and compare their ability to match observations with LCDM. We find that there is negligible difference between best fit Szekeres models with no priors and those for LCDM, both including and excluding Lyman-alpha data. We also find that the growth index gamma parametrization cannot be applied in a simple way to the growth in Szekeres models, so a direct comparison of the function f to the data is performed. We conclude that the Szekeres models can provide an exact framework for the analysis of large-scale growth data that includes inhomogeneities and allows for different interpretations of observations.

Partner orbits and action differences on compact factors of the hyperbolic plane. II: Higher-order encounters

  Mathematical Physics (arXiv)

Summary: Physicists have argued that periodic orbit bunching leads to universal spectral fluctuations for chaotic quantum systems. To establish a more detailed mathematical understanding of this fact, it is first necessary to look more closely at the classical side of the problem and determine orbit pairs consisting of orbits which have similar actions. We specialize to the geodesic flow on compact factors of the hyperbolic plane as a classical chaotic system. The companion paper [14] proved the existence of a unique periodic partner orbit for a given periodic orbit with a small-angle self-crossing in configuration space that is a 2-encounter and derived an estimate for the action difference of the orbit pair. In this paper, we provide an inductive argument to deal with higher-order encounters: we prove that a given periodic orbit including an $L$-parallel encounter has $(L-1)!-1$ partner orbits; we construct partner orbits and give estimates for the action differences between orbit pairs.

Strong restriction on inflationary vacua from the local gauge invariance II: Infrared regularity and absence of the secular growth in Euclidean vacuum

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We investigate the initial state of the inflationary universe. In our recent publications, we showed that requesting the gauge invariance in the local observable universe to the initial state guarantees the infrared (IR) regularity of loop corrections in a general single clock inflation. Following this study, in this paper, we show that choosing the Euclidean vacuum ensures the gauge invariance in the local universe and hence the IR regularity of loop corrections. It has been suggested that loop corrections to inflationary perturbations may yield the secular growth, which can lead to the break down of the perturbative analysis in an extremely long term inflation. The absence of the secular growth has been claimed by picking up only the IR contributions, which we think is incomplete because the non-IR modes which are comparable to or smaller than the Hubble scale potentially can contribute to the secular growth. We prove the absence of the secular growth without neglecting these non-IR modes to a certain order...

Multiwavelength study of massive galaxies at z~2. II. Widespread Compton thick AGN and the concurrent growth of black holes and bulges

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: Approximately 20-30% of 1.46.2 keV. The stacked X-ray spectrum rises steeply at >10 keV, suggesting that these sources host Compton-thick Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) with column densities N_H~10^{24} cm^-2 and an average, unobscured X-ray luminosity L_{2-8 keV}~(1-4)x10^43 erg/s. Their sky density(~3200 deg^-2) and space density (~2.6x10^-4 Mpc^-3) are twice those of X-ray detected AGNs at z~2, and much larger than those of previously-known Compton thick sources at similar redshifts. The mid-IR excess galaxies are part of the long sought-after population of distant heavily obscured AGNs predicted by synthesis models of the X-ray background. The fraction of mid-IR excess objects increases with galaxy mass, reaching ~50-60% for M~10^11 M_sun, an effect likely connected with downsizing in galaxy formation. The ratio of theinferred black hole growth rate from these Compton-thick sources to the global star formation rate at z=2 is similar to the mass ratio of black holes to stars inlocal spheroids, implying concurrent growth of both within the precursors oftoday's massive galaxies.

Laplacian Growth II: Saffman - Taylor Problem Without Surface Tension in Filtration Combustion: Formation of One Finger with Half of the Channel Width

  Nonlinear Sciences (arXiv)

Summary: Filtration combustion is described by Laplacian growth without surface tension. These equations have elegant analytical solutions that replace the complex integro-differential motion equations by simple differential equations of pole motion in a complex plane. The main problem with such a solution is the existence of finite time singularities. To prevent such singularities, nonzero surface tension is usually used.However, nonzero surface tension does not exist in filtration combustion, and this destroys the analytical solutions. However, a more elegant approach exists for solving the problem. First, we can introduce a small amount of pole noise to the system. Second, for regularisation of the problem, we throw out all new poles that can produce a finite time singularity. It can be strictly proved that the asymptotic solution for such a system is a single finger. Moreover, the qualitative consideration demonstrates that a finger with 1/2 of the channel width is statistically stable. Therefore, all properties of such a solution are exactly the same as those of the solution with nonzero surface tension under numerical noise. The solution of the ST problem without surface tension is similar to the solution for the equation of cellular flames in the case of the combustion of gas mixtures.

Multiwavelength study of massive galaxies at z~2. II. Widespread Compton thick AGN and the concurrent growth of black holes and bulges

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We investigate a population of z~2 galaxies that shows a distinct mid-IR (24um) excess flux over what expected from the SFR at radio, UV, 70um, soft X-ray, and submm wavelengths in GOODS. These mid-IR excess galaxies, represent ~20-30% of all z~2 star forming galaxies to K10 keV, suggesting that these sources host AGNs obscured by Compton-thick absorption with column densities N_H>10^{24}/cm^2. Their unobscured X-ray luminosity is estimated to be L_{2-8 keV}~(1-4)x10^{43}erg/s. Their sky density (~3200/deg^2) and space density (~2.6x10^-4/Mpc^3) are twice those of individually X-ray detected AGNs at z~2, and much larger than those of previously known Compton thick sources at high-z. These objects are part of the long sought-after population of distant heavily obscured AGNs predicted by models of the X-ray background. The ratio of their BH growth rate density to the ongoing SFR density in the full z=2 galaxy population is similar to the ratio of BH to stellar mass in local spheroids. We are likely witnessing t...

Form factors in the massless coset models su(2)_k+1 \\otimes su(2)_k /su(2)_2k+1 - Part II

  Mathematical Physics (arXiv)

Summary: Massless flows from the coset model su(2)_k+1 \\otimes su(2)_k /su(2)_2k+1 to the minimal model M_k+2 are studied from the viewpoint of form factors. These flows include in particular the flow from the Tricritical Ising model to the Ising model. By analogy with the magnetization operator in the flow TIM -> IM, we construct all form factors of an operator that flows to \\Phi_1,2 in the IR. We make a numerical estimation of the difference of conformal weights between the UV and the IR thanks to the \\Delta-sum rule; the results are consistent with the conformal weight of the operator \\Phi_2,2 in the UV. By analogy with the energy operator in the flow TIM -> IM, we construct all form factors of an operator that flows to \\Phi_2,1. We propose to identify the operator in the UV with \\sigma_1\\Phi_1,2.

Path representation of su(2)_k states II: Operator construction of the fermionic character and spin-1/2--RSOS factorization

  HEP - Theory (arXiv)

Summary: This is the second of two articles (independent of each other) devoted to the analysis of the path description of the states in su(2)_k WZW models. Here we present a constructive derivation of the fermionic character at level k based on these paths. The starting point is the expression of a path in terms of a sequence of nonlocal (formal) operators acting on the vacuum ground-state path. Within this framework, the key step is the construction of the level-k operator sequences out of those at level-1 by the action of a new type of operators. These actions of operators on operators turn out to have a path interpretation: these paths are precisely the finitized RSOS paths related to the unitary minimal models M(k+1,k+2). We thus unravel -- at the level of the path representation of the states --, a direct factorization into a k=1 spinon part times a RSOS factor. It is also pointed out that since there are two fermionic forms describing these finite RSOS paths, the resulting fermionic su(2)_k characters arise in two versions. Finally, the relation between the present construction and the Nagoya spectral decomposition of the path space is sketched.

Summary: We present the first terrestrial measurement of the Lande g factor of the 5D5/2 state of singly ionized barium. Measurements were performed on single Doppler-cooled 138Ba+ ions in a linear Paul trap. A frequency-stabilized fiber laser with nominal wavelength 1.762 um was scanned across the 6S1/25D5/2 transition to spectroscopically resolve transitions between Zeeman sublevels of the ground and excited states. From the relative positions of the four narrow transitions observed at several different values for the applied magnetic field, we find a value of 1.2020+/-0.000 for g of 5D5/2.

Water ice growth around evolved stars

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We present a model of the growth of water ice on silicate grains in the circumstellar envelopes of Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars and Red Super Giants. We consider the growth of ice by gas grain collisions, the thermal evaporation of ice from a grain, and sputtering. Our model contains several improvements compared to earlier models, including a detailed treatment of the effects of sputtering, a detailed calculation of the radiation pressure on the grain, and the treatment of subsonic drift velocities. In terms of drift velocity between the grains and gas in the envelope, we find that the ice formation process can be divided into three regimes: (i) a sputtering dominated regime where ice growth is heavily suppressed, (ii) an intermediate regime with moderately efficient condensation and (iii) a thermally dominated regime where ice formation is highly efficient. Sputtering is the critical factor which determines if ice formation can occur at all. We find that in Red Supergiants, ice formation is suppressed, while the winds of OH/IR stars allow for efficient condensation and can convert significant fractions of the available water vapor (tens of percent) into ice mantles on grains. Population II AGB stars hardly form ice due to their low dust to gas ratios. We also modify an analytical equation describing condensation and depletion (Jura and Morris, 1985) in order to give reasonable results for high and low drift velocities. Initially, ice will condense in crystalline form, but continuing condensation at low temperatures, and damage caused by interstellar UV photons favor the production of amorphous ice as well. We predict that a significant fraction of the ice formed will be amorphous.

Quasar Spectrum Classification with PCA - II: Introduction of Five Classes, Artificial Quasar Spectrum, the Mean Flux Correction Factor dF,and the Identification of Emission Lines in the Ly alpha Forest

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We investigate the variety in quasar UV spectra (1020-1600A) with emphasis on the weak emission lines in the Ly alpha forest region using principal component analysis (PCA). This paper is a continuation of Suzuki et al. (2005, Paper I), but with a different approach. We use 50 smooth continuum fitted quasar spectra (0.14 < z < 1.04) taken by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Faint Object Spectrograph. Three weak emission lines in the Ly alpha forest are identified as FeII 1070.95A, FeII+FeIII 1123.17A, and CIII* 1175.88A. Using first two standardized PCS coefficients, we introduce five classifications: Class Zero and Class I-IV. These classifications will guide us in finding the continuum level in the Ly alpha forest, and we discuss the characteristics of each class. We show weak emission lines in the Ly alpha forest become eminent for Class III and IV. By actively using PCS, we can generate artificial quasar spectra which are useful to test the detection of quasars, DLAs, and the continuum calibration. We provide 10,000 artificially generated spectra. We show that the power-law extrapolated continuum is inadequate to perform precise measurements of the mean flux in the Ly alpha forest because of the weak emission lines and the extended tails of Ly alpha and Ly beta/OVI emission lines. We introduce a correction factor dF such that the true mean flux can be related to that is measured by using power-law continuum extrapolation: = dF. The correction factor dF ranges from 0.84 to 1.05 with a mean of 0.947 and a standard deviation of 0.031 for our 50 quasars. This result means that we miss 5.3% of flux on average and we show that there are cases where we would miss 16% of flux using a power-law extrapolation.

Revisited abundance diagnostics in quasars: Fe II/Mg II ratios

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: Both the Fe II UV emission in the 2000- 3000 A region [Fe II (UV)] and resonance emission line complex of Mg II at 2800 A are prominent features in quasar spectra. The observed Fe II UV/ Mg II emission ratios have been proposed as means to measure the buildup of the Fe abundance relative to that of the alpha-elements C, N, O, Ne and Mg as a function of redshift. The current observed ratios show large scatter and no obvious dependence on redshift. Thus, it remains unresolved whether a dependence on redshift exists and whether the observed Fe II UV/ Mg II ratios represent a real nucleosynthesis diagnostic. We have used our new 830-level model atom for Fe+ in photoionization calculations, reproducing the physical conditions in the broad line regions of quasars. This modeling reveals that interpretations of high values of Fe II UV/ Mg II are sensitive not only to Fe and Mg abundance, but also to other factors such as microturbulence, density, and properties of the radiation field. We find that the Fe II UV/ Mg II ratio combined with Fe II (UV)/ Fe II (Optical) emission ratio, where Fe II (Optical) denotes Fe II emission in 4000 - 6000 A can be used as a reliable nucleosynthesis diagnostic for the Fe/Mg abundance ratios for the physical conditions relevant to the broad-line regions (BLRs) of quasars. This has extreme importance for quasar observations with the Hubble Space Telescope and also with the future James Webb Space Telescope.

General law of growth and replication. Growth equation and its applications

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We present significantly advanced studies of the previously introduced physical growth mechanism and unite it with biochemical growth factors. Obtained results allowed formulating the general growth law which governs growth and evolutional development of all living organisms, their organs and systems. It was discovered that the growth cycle is predefined by the distribution of nutritional resources between maintenance needs and biomass production. This distribution is quantitatively defined by the growth ratio parameter, which depends on the geometry of an organism, phase of growth and, indirectly, organism's biochemical machinery. The amount of produced biomass, in turn, defines the composition of biochemical reactions. Changing amount of nutrients diverted to biomass production is what forces organisms to proceed through the whole growth and replication cycle. The growth law can be formulated as follows: the rate of growth is proportional to influx of nutrients and growth ratio. Considering specific biochem...

Improved parametrization of the growth index for dark energy and DGP models

  General Relativity & Quantum Cosmology (arXiv)

Summary: We propose two improved parameterized form for the growth index of the linear matter perturbations: (I) $\\gamma(z)=\\gamma_0+(\\gamma_{\\infty}-\\gamma_0){z\\over z+1}$ and (II) $\\gamma(z)=\\gamma_0+\\gamma_1 \\frac{z}{z+1}+(\\gamma_{\\infty}-\\gamma_1-\\gamma_0)(\\frac{z}{z+1})^{\\alpha}$. With these forms of $\\gamma(z)$, we analyze the accuracy of the approximation the growth factor $f$ by $\\Omega^{\\gamma(z)}_m$ for both the $\\omega$CDM model and the DGP model. For the first improved parameterized form, we find that the approximation accuracy is enhanced at the high redshifts for both kinds of models, but it is not at the low redshifts. For the second improved parameterized form, it is found that $\\Omega^{\\gamma(z)}_m$ approximates the growth factor $f$ very well for all redshifts. For chosen $\\alpha$, the relative error is below 0.003% for the $\\Lambda$CDM model and 0.028% for the DGP model when $\\Omega_{m}=0.27$. Thus, the second improved parameterized form of $\\gamma(z)$ should be useful for the high precision constraint on the growth index of different models with the observational data. Moreover, we also show that $\\alpha$ depends on the equation of state $\\omega$ and the fractional energy density of matter $\\Omega_{m0}$, which may help us learn more information about dark energy and DGP models.

Growth index with the cosmological constant

  General Relativity & Quantum Cosmology (arXiv)

Summary: We obtain the exact analytic form of the growth index at present epoch ($a=1$) in a flat universe with the cosmological constant ({\\it i.e.} the dark energy with its equation of state $\\omega_{de} = -1$). For the cosmological constant, we obtain the exact value of the current growth index parameter $\\gamma = 0.5547$, which is very close to the well known value 6/11. We also obtain the exact analytic solution of the growth factor for $\\omega_{de}$ = -1/3 or -1. We investigate the growth index and its parameter at any epoch with this exact solution. In addition to this, we are able to find the exact $\\Omega_{m}^{0}$ dependence of those observable quantities. The growth index is quite sensitive to $\\Omega_{m}^{0}$ at $z = 0.15$, where we are able to use 2dF observation. If we adopt 2dF value of growth index, then we obtain the constrain $0.11 \\leq \\Omega_{m}^{0} \\leq 0.37$ for the cosmological constant model. Especially, the growth index is quite sensitive to $\\Omega_{m}^{0}$ around $z \\leq 1$. We might be able to obtain interesting observations around this epoch. Thus, the analytic solution for this growth factor provides the very useful tools for future observations to constrain the exact values of observational quantities at any epoch related to growth factor for $\\omega_{de} = -1$ or -1/3.

Instability of Magnetized Ionization Fronts Surrounding H II Regions

  CERN Preprints

Summary: An ionization front (IF) surrounding an H II region is a sharp interface where a cold neutral gas makes transition to a warm ionized phase by absorbing UV photons from central stars. We investigate the instability of a plane-parallel D-type IF threaded by parallel magnetic fields, by neglecting the effects of recombination within the ionized gas. We find that weak D-type IFs always have the post-IF magnetosonic Mach number $\\mathcal{M}_{\\rm M2} \\leq 1$. For such fronts, magnetic fields increase the maximum propagation speed of the IFs, while reducing the expansion factor $\\alpha$ by a factor of $1+1/(2\\beta_1)$ compared to the unmagnetized case, with $\\beta_1$ denoting the plasma beta in the pre-IF region. IFs become unstable to distortional perturbations due to gas expansion across the fronts, exactly analogous to the Darrieus-Landau instability of ablation fronts in terrestrial flames. The growth rate of the IF instability is proportional linearly to the perturbation wavenumber as well as the upstream flow ...

Non Commutative Bianchi type II Quantum Cosmology

  General Relativity & Quantum Cosmology (arXiv)

Summary: In this paper we present the noncommutative Bianchi Class A cosmological models coupled to barotropic perfect fluid. The commutative and noncommutative quantum solution to the Wheeler-DeWitt equation for any factor ordering, to the anisotropic Bianchi type II cosmological model are found, using a stiff fluid ($\\gamma=1$). In our toy model, we introduce noncommutative scale factors, is say, we consider that all minisuperspace variables $\\rm q^i$ does not commute, so the simplectic structure was modified.

Empirical Verification of the Fe II Oscillator Strengths in the FUSE Bandpass

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We report empirical determinations of atomic oscillator strengths, or f-values, for 11 ground-state transitions of Fe II in the wavelength range 1050 to 1150 Ang. We use ultraviolet absorption line observations of interstellar material towards stars in the Galaxy and the Magellanic Clouds taken with Copernicus, the Goddard High Resolution Spectrograph on-board the Hubble Space Telescope, and the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer. We derive absolute oscillator strengths by a combination of the apparent optical depth, component fitting, and curve-of-growth fitting techniques. Our derived oscillator strengths are generally in excellent agreement with recent theoretical calculations by Raassen & Uylings using the orthogonal operator technique. However, we identify three of the eleven transitions studied here whose f-values seem to be incompatible with these calculations, by as much as a factor of two. We suggest revisions to these f-values based upon our analysis.

Type II universal spacetimes

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We study type II universal metrics of the Lorentzian signature. These metrics solve vacuum field equations of all theories of gravitation with the Lagrangian being a polynomial curvature invariant constructed from the metric, the Riemann tensor and its covariant derivatives of arbitrary order. We provide examples of type II universal metrics for all composite number dimensions. On the other hand, we have no examples for prime number dimensions and we prove non-existence of type II universal spacetimes in five dimensions. We also present type II vacuum solutions of selected classes of gravitational theories, such as Lovelock, quadratic and L(Riemann) gravities.

Strange Attractor in Immunology of Tumor Growth

  Nonlinear Sciences (arXiv)

Summary: The time delayed cytotoxic T-lymphocyte response on the tumor growth has been developed on the basis of discrete approximation (2-dimensional map). The growth kinetic has been described by logistic law with growth rate being the bifurcation parameter. Increase in the growth rate results in instability of the tumor state and causes period-doubling bifurcations in the immune+tumor system. For larger values of tumor growth rate a strange attractor has been observed. The model proposed is able to describe the metastable-state production when time series data of the immune state and the number of tumor cells are irregular and unpredictable. This metastatic disease may be caused not by exterior (medical) factors, but interior density dependent ones.

Perturbative Growth of Cosmological Clustering II: The Two Point Correlation

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We use the BBGKY hierarchy equations to calculate, perturbatively, the lowest order nonlinear correction to the two point correlation and the pair velocity for Gaussian initial conditions in a critical density matter dominated cosmological model. We compare our results with the results obtained using the hydrodynamic equations which neglect pressure and we find that the two match, indicating that thare are no effects of multistreaming at this order of perturbation. We analytically study the effect of small scales on the large scales by calculating the nonlinear correction for a Dirac delta function initial two point correlation. We find that the induced two point correlation has a $x^{-6}$ behaviour at large separations. We have considered a class of initial conditions where the initial power spectrum at small $k$ has the form $k^n$ with $0 < n \\le 3$ and have numerically calculated the nonlinear correction to the two point correlation, its average over a sphere and the pair velocity over a large dynamical range. We find that at small separations the effect of the nonlinear term is to enhance the clustering whereas at intermediate scales it can act to either increase or decrease the clustering. At large scales we find a simple formula which gives a very good fit for the nonlinear correction in terms of the initial function. This formula explicitly exhibits the influence of small scales on large scales and because of this coupling the perturbative treatment breaks down at large scales much before one would expect it to if the nonlinearity were local in real space. We physically interpret this formula in terms of a simple diffusion process. We have also investigated the case $n=0$ and we find that it differs from the other cases in certain respects. We investigate a recently proposed scaling property of

Growth mechanism of nanostructured superparamagnetic rods obtained by electrostatic co-assembly

  Condensed Matter (arXiv)

Summary: We report on the growth of nanostructured rods fabricated by electrostatic co-assembly between iron oxide nanoparticles and polymers. The nanoparticles put under scrutiny, {\\gamma}-Fe2O3 or maghemite, have diameter of 6.7 nm and 8.3 nm and narrow polydispersity. The co-assembly is driven by i) the electrostatic interactions between the polymers and the particles, and by ii) the presence of an externally applied magnetic field. The rods are characterized by large anisotropy factors, with diameter 200 nm and length comprised between 1 and 100 {\\mu}m. In the present work, we provide for the first time the morphology diagram for the rods as a function of ionic strength and concentration. We show the existence of a critical nanoparticle concentration and of a critical ionic strength beyond which the rods do not form. In the intermediate regimes, only tortuous and branched aggregates are detected. At higher concentrations and lower ionic strengths, linear and stiff rods with superparamagnetic properties are produced. Based on these data, a mechanism for the rod formation is proposed. The mechanism proceeds in two steps : the formation and growth of spherical clusters of particles, and the alignment of the clusters induced by the magnetic dipolar interactions. As far as the kinetics of these processes is concerned, the clusters growth and their alignment occur concomitantly, leading to a continuous accretion of particles or small clusters, and a welding of the rodlike structure.

Observational links between AGN evolution and galaxy growth

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: There is growing interest in the possible link between the growth of supermassive black holes and the effect of feedback from them on galaxy growth. There are three areas of significant uncertainty: (i) the physics of the feedback; (ii) the prevalence and effectiveness of feedback; (iii) the link between the growth of black holes and their hosts. The 2QZ optical QSO survey indicates that luminous QSOs are relatively short-lived, and it has recently been shown that the observed bolometric luminosity density from all AGN and its evolution can be reproduced if black holes grew coevally with their galaxies, implying but not requiring a causal link between galaxy growth and black hole growth. At low redshifts there is some evidence that black hole and galaxy growth are starting to decouple.

Toroidal Magnetic Fields in Type II Superconducting Neutron Stars

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We determine constraints on the form of axisymmetric toroidal magnetic fields dictated by hydrostatic balance in a type II superconducting neutron star with a barotropic equation of state. Using Lagrangian perturbation theory, we find the quadrupolar distortions due to such fields for various models of neutron stars with type II superconducting and normal regions. We find that the star becomes prolate and can be sufficiently distorted to display precession with a period of the order of years. We also study the stability of such fields using an energy principle, which allows us to extend the stability criteria established by R. J. Tayler for normal conductors to more general media with magnetic free energy that depends on density and magnetic induction, such as type II superconductors. We also derive the growth rate and instability conditions for a specific instability of type II superconductors, first discussed by P. Muzikar, C. J. Pethick and P. H. Roberts, using a local analysis based on perturbations aroun...

Integrable mappings and polynomial growth

  HEP - Theory (arXiv)

Summary: We describe birational representations of discrete groups generated by involutions, having their origin in the theory of exactly solvable vertex-models in lattice statistical mechanics. These involutions correspond respectively to two kinds of transformations on $q \\times q$ matrices: the inversion of the $q \\times q$ matrix and an (involutive) permutation of the entries of the matrix. We concentrate on the case where these permutations are elementary transpositions of two entries. In this case the birational transformations fall into six different classes. For each class we analyze the factorization properties of the iteration of these transformations. These factorization properties enable to define some canonical homogeneous polynomials associated with these factorization properties. Some mappings yield a polynomial growth of the complexity of the iterations. For three classes the successive iterates, for $q=4$, actually lie on elliptic curves. This analysis also provides examples of integrable mappings in arbitrary dimension, even infinite. Moreover, for two classes, the homogeneous polynomials are shown to satisfy non trivial non-linear recurrences. The relations between factorizations of the iterations, the existence of recurrences on one or several variables, as well as the integrability of the mappings are analyzed.

Large-scale growth evolution in the Szekeres inhomogeneous cosmological models with comparison to growth data

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We use the Szekeres inhomogeneous cosmological models to study the growth of large-scale structure in the universe including nonzero spatial curvature and a cosmological constant. In particular, we use the Goode and Wainwright formulation, as in this form the models can be considered to represent exact nonlinear perturbations of an averaged background. We identify a density contrast in both classes I and II of the models, for which we derive growth evolution equations. By including Lambda, the time evolution of the density contrast as well as kinematic quantities can be tracked through the matter- and Lambda-dominated cosmic eras up to the present and into the future. In various models of class I and class II, the growth rate is found to be stronger than that of the LCDM cosmology, and it is suppressed at later times due to the presence of Lambda. We find that there are Szekeres models able to provide a growth history similar to that of LCDM while requiring less matter content and nonzero curvature, which spe...

Doublon Growth in Solidification

  Condensed Matter (arXiv)

Summary: We present experiments on the doublon growth morphology in directional solidification. Samples used are succinonitrile with small amounts of poly(ethylene oxide), acetone, or camphor as the solute. Doublons, or symmetry-broken dendrites, are generic diffusion-limited growth structures expected at large undercooling and low anisotropy. Low anisotropy growth is achieved by selecting a grain near the $\\{111\\}$ plane leading to either seaweed (dense branching morphology) or doublon growth depending on experimental parameters. We find selection of doublons to be strongly dependent on solute concentration and sample orientation. Doublons are selected at low concentrations (low solutal undercooling) in contrast to the prediction of doublons at large thermal undercooling in pure materials. Doublons also exhibit preferred growth directions and changing the orientation of a specific doublonic grain changes the character and stability of the doublons. We observe transitions between seaweed and doublon growth with changes in concentration and sample orientation.

[O II] line ratios

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: Based on new calculations we reconfirm the low and high density limits on the forbidden fine structure line ratio [O II] I(3729)/I(3726): lim_{N_ e} --> 0} = 1.5 and lim_{N_ e} --> \\infty} = 0.35. Employing [O II] collision strengths calculated using the Breit-Pauli R-matrix method we rule out any significant deviation due to relativistic effects from these canonical values. The present results are in substantial agreement with older calculations by Pradhan (1976) and validate the extensive observational analysis of gaseous nebulae by Copetti and Writzel (2002) and Wang et al (2004) that reach the same conclusions. The present theoretical results and the recent observational analyses differ significantly from the calculations by MacLaughlin and Bell (1998) and Keenan et al (1999). The new maxwellian averaged effective collision strengths are presented for the 10 transitions among the first 5 levels to enable computations of [O II] line ratios.

Cosmological HII Bubble Growth During Reionization

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We present general properties of ionized hydrogen (HII) bubbles and their growth based on a state-of-the-art large-scale (100 Mpc/h) cosmological radiative transfer simulation. The simulation resolves all halos with atomic cooling at the relevant redshifts and simultaneously performs radiative transfer and dynamical evolution of structure formation. Our major conclusions include: (1) for significant HII bubbles, the number distribution is peaked at a volume of ~ 0.6 Mpc^3/h^3 at all redshifts. But, at z 10 even the largest HII bubbles have a balanced ionizing photon contribution from Pop II and Pop III stars, while at z < 8 Pop II stars start to dominate the overall ionizing photon production for large bubbles, although Pop III stars continue to make a non-negligible contribution. (6) The relationship between halo number density and bubble size is complicated but a strong correlation is found between halo number density and bubble size for for large bubbles.

Growth modes of quasicrystals

  Condensed Matter (arXiv)

Summary: The growth of quasicrystals, i.e., aperiodic structures with long-range order, seeded from the melt is investigated using a dynamical phase field crystal model. Depending on the thermodynamic conditions, two different growth modes are detected, namely defect-free growth of the stable quasicrystal and a mode dominated by phasonic flips which are incorporated as local defects into the grown structure such that random tiling-like ordering emerges. The latter growth mode is unique to quasicrystals and can be verified in experiments on one-component mesoscopic systems.

Domain Growth in Chiral Phase Transitions

  Nuclear Theory (arXiv)

Summary: We investigate the kinetics of chiral phase transitions in quark matter. We discuss the phase diagram of this system in both a microscopic framework (using the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model) and a phenomenological framework (using a Landau free energy). Then, we study the far-from-equilibrium coarsening dynamics subsequent to a quench from the chirally-symmetric phase to the massive quark phase. Depending on the nature of the quench, the system evolves via either {\\it spinodal decomposition} or {\\it nucleation and growth}. The morphology of the ordering system is characterized using the order-parameter correlation function, structure factor, domain growth laws, etc.

MgII Absorbers: Halos or Disks?

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We challenge the conventional view that the majority of MgII/Lyman limit absorbers are extended halos of galaxies comprised of ``clouds'' with near-unity covering factor. The gaseous disks of spiral galaxies are known to extend to large radii and likely contribute a significant cross-section for absorption. We perform a Monte-Carlo survey of QSO fields in which the model galaxies have MgII absorbing ``clouds'' in a spherical halo or in a randomly oriented disk. For both geometries, models that recover the observed properties of MgII absorbers have only a 70-80% covering factor. Therefore, regardless of absorber geometry, a survey of randomly selected QSO fields should yield a non-negligible number of non-absorbing galaxies at small impact parameters. Very few have been observed (Steidel (1995)). However, selection effects are important, and once the observational procedures are applied to our model fields we find that this result is expected. Since both spherical halo and disk models can be made consistent with survey results, we present tests for discerning the geometric distribution of absorbing gas from Hubble Space Telescope images and high resolution spectra.

Luminous type II Supernovae

  CERN Preprints

Summary: Context. In this paper we present spectroscopic and photometric observation of five type II supernovae (SNe), namely SNe 2009dd, 2007pk, 2010aj, 1995ad, and 1996W. Together with other few SNe they form a group of luminous type II events. Aims. We investigate the similarities and the differences among these five SNe, that represent the bulk of the luminous type II so far. We also attempt to characterise this subgroup of core-collapse SNe by analysing their spectral evolution, in order to find evidences of interaction that are common to them. Methods. We collect data ranging from the ultraviolet (UV) to the near-infrared (NIR) with several telescopes in order to construct well-sampled light curves and spectral evolutions from the photospheric to the nebular phase. Both photometric and spectroscopic evolution indicate significant differences among the objects and between them and other luminous type II SNe. Modelling the data of SNe 2009dd, 2010aj and 1995ad allows us to constrain the explosion parameters and th...
