A remotely readable fiber optic compass. A sheet polarizer is affixed to a magnet rotatably mounted in a compass body, such that the polarizer rotates with the magnet. The optical axis of the sheet polarizer is preferably aligned with the north-south axis of the magnet. A single excitation light beam is divided into four identical beams, two of which are passed through the sheet polarizer and through two fixed polarizing sheets which have their optical axes at right angles to one another. The angle of the compass magnet with respect to a fixed axis of the compass body can be determined by measuring the ratio of the intensities of the two light beams. The remaining ambiguity as to which of the four possible quadrants the magnet is pointing to is resolved by the second pair of light beams, which are passed through the sheet polarizer at positions which are transected by two semicircular opaque strips formed on the sheet polarizer. The incoming excitation beam and the four return beams are communicated by means of optical fibers, giving a remotely readable compass which has no electrical parts.

The measurement of absolutely normalized cross sections for high-energy scattering processes is an important reference for theoretical models. This paper discusses the first determination of the luminosity for data of the COMPASS experiment, which is the basis for such measurements. The resulting normalization is validated via the determination of the structure function $F_2$ from COMPASS data, which is compared to literature.
State Transitions and Decoherence in the Avian Compass

The radical pair model has been successful in explaining behavioral characteristics of the geomagnetic compass believed to underlie the navigation capability of certain avian species. In this study, the spin dynamics of the radical pair model and decoherence therein are interpreted from a microscopic state transition point of view. This helps to elucidate the interplay between the hyperfine and Zeeman interactions that enables the avian compass, and the distinctive effects of nuclear and environmental decoherence on it. Using a quantum information theoretic quantifier of coherence, we find that nuclear decoherence induces new structure in the spin dynamics without materially affecting the compass action; environmental decoherence, on the other hand, completely disrupts it.
Quantum Correlation in One-dimensional Extend Quantum Compass Model

We study the correlations in the one-dimensional extended quantum compass model in a transverse magnetic field. By exactly solving the Hamiltonian, we find that the quantum correlation of the ground state of one-dimensional quantum compass model is vanishing. We show that quantum discord can not only locate the quantum critical points, but also discern the orders of phase transitions. Furthermore, entanglement quantified by concurrence is also compared.

Hadron Spectroscopy in COMPASS
Boris Grube; for the COMPASS Collaboration
2013-01-31T23:59:59.000Z
The COmmon Muon and Proton Apparatus for Structure and Spectroscopy (COMPASS) is a multi-purpose fixed-target experiment at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) aimed at studying the structure and spectrum of hadrons. In the naive Constituent Quark Model (CQM) mesons are bound states of quarks and antiquarks. QCD, however, predict the existence of hadrons beyond the CQM with exotic properties interpreted as excited glue (hybrids) or even pure gluonic bound states (glueballs). One main goal of COMPASS is to search for these states. Particularly interesting are so called spin-exotic mesons which have J^{PC} quantum numbers forbidden for ordinary q\\bar{q} states. Its large acceptance, high resolution, and high-rate capability make the COMPASS experiment an excellent device to study the spectrum of light-quark mesons in diffractive and central production reactions up to masses of about 2.5 GeV. COMPASS is able to measure final states with charged as well as neutral particles, so that resonances can be studied in different reactions and decay channels. During 2008 and 2009 COMPASS acquired large data samples using negative and positive secondary hadron beams on lH_2, Ni, and Pb targets. The presented overview of the first results from this data set focuses in particular on the search for spin-exotic mesons in diffractively produced \\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-, \\eta\\pi, \\eta'\\pi, and \\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^- final states and the analysis of central-production of \\pi^+\\pi^- pairs in order to study glueball candidates in the scalar sector.

Spontaneous symmetry breaking in a generalized orbital compass model
Lukasz Cincio; Jacek Dziarmaga; Andrzej M. Oles
2010-09-10T23:59:59.000Z
We introduce a generalized two-dimensional orbital compass model, which interpolates continuously from the classical Ising model to the orbital compass model with frustrated quantum interactions, and investigate it using the multiscale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA). The results demonstrate that increasing frustration of exchange interactions triggers a second order quantum phase transition to a degenerate symmetry broken state which minimizes one of the interactions in the orbital compass model. Using boson expansion within the spin-wave theory we unravel the physical mechanism of the symmetry breaking transition as promoted by weak quantum fluctuations and explain why this transition occurs only surprisingly close to the maximally frustrated interactions of the orbital compass model. The spin waves remain gapful at the critical point, and both the boson expansion and MERA do not find any algebraically decaying spin-spin correlations in the critical ground state.

From the analysis of the 2002-2004 data, new results for the transverse target spin asymmetry of z-ordered identified pion and kaon pairs are presented. In addition, a first result for the transverse target spin asymmetry of exclusively produced rho^0 mesons on the deuteron is shown.

The COMPASS experiment is a fixed target experiment at the CERN SPS using muon and hadron beams for the investigation of the spin structure of the nucleon and hadron spectroscopy. The main objective of the muon physics program is the study of the spin of the nucleon in terms of its constituents, quarks and gluons. COMPASS has accumulated data during 6 years scattering polarized muons off a longitudinally or a transversely polarized deuteron (6LiD) or proton (NH3) target. Results for the gluon polarization are obtained from longitudinal double spin cross section asymmetries using two different channels, open charm production and high transverse momentum hadron pairs, both proceeding through the photon-gluon fusion process. Also, the longitudinal spin structure functions of the proton and the deuteron were measured in parallel as well as the helicity distributions for the three lightest quark flavors. With a transversely polarized target, results were obtained with proton and deuteron targets for the Collins and Sivers asymmetries for charged hadrons as well as for identified kaons and pions. The Collins asymmetry is sensitive to the transverse spin structure of the nucleon, while the Sivers asymmetry reflects correlations between the quark transverse momentum and the nucleon spin. Recently, a new proposal for the COMPASS II experiment was accepted by the CERN SPS which includes two new topics: Exclusive reactions like DVCS and DVMP using the muon beam and a hydrogen target to study generalized parton distributions and Drell-Yan measurements using a pion beam and a polarized NH3 target to study transverse momentum dependent distributions.

At the COMPASS experiment, diffractive dissociation of the beam proton is one of the dominant processes for the 190GeV/c positive hadron beam impinging on a liquid hydrogen target. The status of the analysis of the reactions pp -> p_f pi^+ pi^- p_s and pp -> p_f K^+ K^- p_s is presented, where dominant features of the light-baryon spectrum become clearly visible. Furthermore, partial-wave analysis techniques to disentangle these spectra are discussed.

In the years 2002-2004 COMPASS has collected data with the LiD target polarization oriented transversely with respect to the muon beam direction for about 20% of the running time, to measure transverse spin effects in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering, one of the main objectives of the COMPASS spin program. In 2007, COMPASS has used for the first time a proton NH_3 target with the data taking time equally shared between longitudinal and transverse polarization of the target. After reviewing the results obtained with the deuteron, the new results for the Collins and Sivers asymmetries of the proton will be presented.

COMPASS is a multi-purpose fixed-target experiment at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron aimed at studying the structure and spectrum of hadrons. One primary goal is the search for new hadronic states, in particular spin-exotic mesons and glueballs. We present recent results of partial-wave analyses of (3\\pi)^- and \\pi^-\\eta' final states based on a large data set of diffractive dissociation of a 190 GeV/c \\pi^- beam on a proton target in the squared four-momentum-transfer range 0.1 < t' < 1 (GeV/c)^2. We also show first results from a partial-wave analysis of diffractive dissociation of K^- into K^-\\pi^+\\pi^- final states are presented.

2007-12-19T23:59:59.000Z
COMPASS is a fixed target experiment at the CERN SPS, with a rich physics program focused on nucleon spin structure and on hadron spectroscopy. One of the main goals of the spin program is the measurement of the transverse spin distribution function $\\Delta_T q(x)$ in semi-inclusive DIS off transversely polarized nucleons. For this purpose approximately 20% of the running time in the years 2002 to 2004 with the longitudinally polarized muon beam of 160 GeV and with $^6$LiD polarized target was used to collect data with the target polarized transversely with respect to the beam direction. The 2002 data have been already analysed and published. We present here the preliminary results from the full statistics for the Collins and Sivers single hadron asymmetries and for the transverse spin asymmetry in hadron pair production.
Cell Migration Model with Multiple Chemical Compasses
Shuji Ishihara
2013-01-29T23:59:59.000Z
A simple model is proposed that describes the various morphodynamic principles of migrating cells from polar to amoeboidal motions. The model equation is derived using competing internal cellular compass variables and symmetries of the system. Fixed points for the $N = 2$ system are closely investigated to clarify how the competition among polaritors explains the observed morphodynamics. Response behaviors of cell--to--signal stimuli are also investigated. This model will be useful for classifying high-dimensional cell motions and investigating collective cellular behaviors.

The COMPASS fixed-target experiment at CERN SPS is dedicated to the study of hadron structure and dynamics. In the physics programme using hadron beams, the focus is on the detection of new states, in particular the search for $J^{PC}$ exotic states and glueballs. After a short pilot run in 2004 (190 GeV/c negative pion beam, lead target), we started our hadron spectroscopy programme in 2008 by collecting an unprecedented statistics with a negative hadron beam (190 GeV/c) on a liquid hydrogen target. A similar amount of data with positive hadron beam (190 GeV/c) has been taken in 2009, as well as some additional data with negative beam on nuclear targets. The spectrometer features a large angular acceptance and high momentum resolution and also good coverage by electromagnetic calorimetry, crucial for the detection of final states involving $\\pi^0$ or $\\eta$. A first important result is the observation of a significant $J^{PC}$ spin exotic signal consistent with the disputed $\\pi_1(1600)$ in the pilot run data. This result was recently published. We present an overview of the status of various ongoing analyses on the 2008/09 data.
Gluon Polarisation Measurements @ COMPASS
Luís Silva; for the COMPASS Collaboration
2011-11-02T23:59:59.000Z
One of the missing keys in the present understanding of the spin structure of the nucleon is the contribution from the gluons: the so-called gluon polarisation. This quantity can be determined in DIS through the photon-gluon fusion process, in which two analysis methods may be used: (i) identifying open charm events or (ii) selecting events with high p_T hadrons. The data used in the present work were collected in the COMPASS experiment, where a 160 GeV/c naturally polarised muon beam, impinging on a polarised nucleon fixed target is used. Preliminary results for the gluon polarisation from high p_T and open charm analyses are presented. The gluon polarisation result for high p_T hadrons is divided, for the first time, into three statistically independent measurements at LO. The result from open charm analysis is obtained at LO and NLO. In both analyses a new weighted method based on a neural network approach is used.

2010-09-08T23:59:59.000Z
The investigation of transverse spin and transverse momentum effects in deep inelastic scattering is one of the key physics programs of the COMPASS collaboration. Three channels have been analyzed at COMPASS to access the transversity distribution function: The azimuthal distribution of single hadrons, involving the Collins fragmentation function, the azimuthal dependence of the plane containing hadron pairs, involving the two-hadron interference fragmentation function, and the measurement of the transverse polarization of Lambda hyperons in the final state. Azimuthal asymmetries in unpolarized semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering give important information on the inner structure of the nucleon as well, and can be used to estimate both the quark transverse momentum k_T in an unpolarized nucleon and to access the so-far unmeasured Boer-Mulders function. COMPASS has measured these asymmetries using spin-averaged 6LiD data.

The study of transverse spin effects is part of the scientific program of COMPASS, a fixed target experiment at the CERN SPS. COMPASS investigates the transversity PDFs in semi-inclusive DIS, using a longitudinally polarized muon beam of 160 GeV/c impinging on a transversely polarized target. From 2002 to 2004, data have been collected using a $^6$LiD target transversely polarized. Transversity has been measured using different quark polarimeters: the azimuthal distribution of single hadrons, the azimuthal dependence of the plane containing hadron pairs, and the measurement of the transverse polarization of baryons ($\\Lambda$ hyperons). All the asymmetries have been found to be small, and compatible with zero, a result which has been interpreted as a cancellation between the u and d-quark contributions. In 2007 COMPASS has taken data using a NH$_3$ polarized proton target which will give complementary information on transverse spin effects.

COMPASS is a fixed-target experiment at the CERN SPS for the investigation of the structure and the dynamics of hadrons. The experimental setup features a large acceptance and high momentum resolution spectrometer including particle identification and calorimetry and is therefore ideal to access a broad range of different final states. Following the promising observation of a spin-exotic resonance during an earlier pilot run, COMPASS focused on light-quark hadron spectroscopy during the years 2008 and 2009. A data set, world leading in terms of statistics and resolution, has been collected with a 190GeV/c hadron beam impinging on either liquid hydrogen or nuclear targets. Spin-exotic meson and glueball candidates formed in both diffractive dissociation and central production are presently studied. Since the beam composition includes protons, the excited baryon spectrum is also accessible. Furthermore, Primakoff reactions have the potential to determine radiative widths of the resonances and to probe chiral perturbation theory. An overview of the ongoing analyses will be presented. In particular, the employed partial wave analysis techniques will be illustrated and recent results will be shown for a selection of final states.
Transverse Spin Effects at COMPASS
H. Wollny
2009-02-03T23:59:59.000Z
Single spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering off transversely polarized nucleon targets have been under intense experimental investigation over the past few years. They provide new insights into QCD and the nucleon structure. For instance, they allow the determination of the third yet-unknown leading-twist quark distribution function $\\Delta_{T}q(x)$, the transversity distribution. Additionally, they give insight into the parton transverse momentum distribution and angular momentum. The measurement of transverse spin effects in semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering is an important part of the COMPASS physics program. In the years 2002-2004 data were collected scattering a 160 GeV muon beam on a transversely polarized deuteron target. In 2007, additional data were collected on a transversely polarized proton target. New results from the analysis of the proton data will be presented. A different but not less important insight into the nucleon structure might be given by the Sivers asymmetry. This angular dependence of the cross-section arises from an intrinsic asymmetry in the parton transverse momentum distribution. The Sivers function is tightly related to the total angular momentum carried by the quarks in the nucleon. New COMPASS results for the Sivers asymmetry of the proton will be shown.

2007-03-30T23:59:59.000Z
The COMPASS experiment makes use of the CERN SPS high-intensitymuon and hadron beams for the investigation of the nucleon spin structure and the spectroscopy of hadrons. One or more outgoing particles are detected in coincidence with the incoming muon or hadron. A large polarized target inside a superconducting solenoid is used for the measurements with the muon beam. Outgoing particles are detected by a two-stage, large angle and large momentum range spectrometer. The setup is built using several types of tracking detectors, according to the expected incident rate, required space resolution and the solid angle to be covered. Particle identification is achieved using a RICH counter and both hadron and electromagnetic calorimeters. The setup has been successfully operated from 2002 onwards using a muon beam. Data with a hadron beam were also collected in 2004. This article describes the main features and performances of the spectrometer in 2004; a short summary of the 2006 upgrade is also given.
Symmetry properties and spectra of the two-dimensional quantum compass model
Wojciech Brzezicki; Andrzej M. Ole?
2013-06-04T23:59:59.000Z
We use exact symmetry properties of the two-dimensional quantum compass model to derive nonequivalent invariant subspaces in the energy spectra of $L\\times L$ clusters up to L=6. The symmetry allows one to reduce the original $L\\times L$ compass cluster to the $(L-1)\\times (L-1)$ one with modified interactions. This step is crucial and enables: (i) exact diagonalization of the $6\\times 6$ quantum compass cluster, and (ii) finding the specific heat for clusters up to L=6, with two characteristic energy scales. We investigate the properties of the ground state and the first excited states and present extrapolation of the excitation energy with increasing system size. Our analysis provides physical insights into the nature of nematic order realized in the quantum compass model at finite temperature. We suggest that the quantum phase transition at the isotropic interaction point is second order with some admixture of the discontinuous transition, as indicated by the entropy, the overlap between two types of nematic order (on horizontal and vertical bonds) and the existence of the critical exponent. Extrapolation of the specific heat to the $L\\to\\infty$ limit suggests the classical nature of the quantum compass model and high degeneracy of the ground state with nematic order.

We present first results of a partial wave analysis of the diffractive reaction $\\pi- Pb \\to \\pi- \\pi+ \\pi- Pb$ based on data from the COMPASS experiment taken during a pilot run in 2004 using a 190 GeV/c $\\pi-$ beam on a lead target. The analysis was performed in the region of squared four-momentum transfer $t'$ between 0.1 and 1.0 (GeV/c)^2. The $\\pi- \\pi+ \\pi-$ final state shows a rich spectrum of well-known resonances. In addition a spin-exotic $J^{PC} = 1^{-+}$ state with significant intensity was observed at 1.66 GeV/c^2 in the $\\rho(770) \\pi$ decay channel in natural parity exchange. The resonant nature of this state is manifest in the mass dependence of its phase difference to $J^{PC} = 1^{++}$ and $2^{-+}$ waves. The measured resonance parameters are consistent with the disputed $\\pi_1(1600)$. An outlook on the analyses of the much larger data set taken during 2008 and 2009 is given.

Hadron Spectroscopy with COMPASS at CERN
Karin Schoenning for the COMPASS collaboration
2011-12-02T23:59:59.000Z
The aim of the COMPASS hadron programme is to study the light-quark hadron spectrum, and in particular, to search for evidence of hybrids and glueballs. COMPASS is a fixed-target experiment at the CERN SPS and features a two-stage spectrometer with high momentum resolution, large acceptance, particle identification and calorimetry. A short pilot run in 2004 resulted in the observation of a spin-exotic state with $J^{PC} = 1^{-+}$ consistent with the debated $\\pi1(1600)$. In addition, Coulomb production at low momentum transfer data provide a test of Chiral Perturbation Theory. During 2008 and 2009, a world leading data set was collected with hadron beam which is currently being analysed. The large statistics allows for a thorough decomposition of the data into partial waves. The COMPASS hadron data span over a broad range of channels and shed light on several different aspects of QCD.
Transverse spin dependent azimuthal asymmetries at COMPASS
Bakur Parsamyan
2013-01-29T23:59:59.000Z
In semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering of polarized leptons on a transversely polarized target eight target transverse spin-dependent azimuthal modulations are allowed. In the QCD parton model half of these asymmetries can be interpreted within the leading order approach and the other four are twist-three contributions. The first two leading twist asymmetries extracted by HERMES and COMPASS experiments are related: one to the transversity distribution and the Collins effect, the other to the Sivers distribution function. These results triggered a lot of interest in the past few years and allowed the first extractions of the transversity and the Sivers distribution functions of nucleon. The remaining six asymmetries were obtained by the COMPASS experiment using a 160 GeV/c longitudinally polarized muon beam and transversely polarized deuteron and proton targets. Here we review preliminary results from COMPASS proton data of 2007.
COMPASS Results on Collins and Sivers Asymmetries
Andrea Bressan; for the COMPASS Collaboration
2009-07-31T23:59:59.000Z
In the list of the main items studied by the CERN COMPASS experiment there are the transverse spin and momentum effects visible in the azimuthal distributions of hadrons produced in the deep inelastic scattering. In the years 2002-2004 COMPASS has collected data with a 6LiD target with the polarization oriented transversely with respect to the muon beam direction for about 20% of the running time; in 2007, COMPASS has used for the first time a proton NH_3 target with the data taking time equally shared between longitudinal and transverse polarization of the target. After reviewing the results obtained with the deuteron, the new results for the Collins and Sivers asymmetries of the proton will be presented.

Meson structure in soft hadronic reactions at COMPASS
Colantoni, M. [Universita del Piemonte Orientate e INFN-To (Italy)
2006-02-11T23:59:59.000Z
The measurement of the electric ({alpha}-bar{pi}) and magnetic ({beta}-bar{pi}) pion polarizabilities supplies a significant test of QCD predictions in particular in the framework of the chiral perturbation theory.In this perspective we have measured with the COMPASS spectrometer the t-dependence of the cross section for the reactions: {pi}- + Z {yields} {pi}- + Z + {gamma}, and {mu}- + Z {yields} {mu}- + Z + {gamma} selecting events corresponding to the Compton {pi}{gamma} and {mu}{gamma} scattering respectively. From a fit of the data of the first reaction we can extract {alpha}-bar{pi} and {beta}-bar{pi}, from those of the second the point-like contribution. This procedure minimizes the systematic errors. Details on the experiment and the present status of the analysis of the data collected in 2004 will be discussed.
Azimuthal asymmetries from unpolarized data at COMPASS
C. Schill; for the COMPASS collaboration
2011-07-12T23:59:59.000Z
The investigation of transverse spin and transverse momentum effects in the nucleon is one of the key physics programs of the COMPASS experiment at CERN. COMPASS investigates these effects scattering 160 GeV/c muons off a fixed NH3 or 6LiD target. The azimuthal asymmetries which appear in the cross-section of semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering on an unpolarized target have been measured. These asymmetries give insight into the intrinsic transverse momentum of the quarks in the nucleon by the Cahn effect and into a possible correlation between transverse momentum and transverse spin. New results for azimuthal asymmetries of single hadrons produced in scattering muons off an unpolarized 6LiD target are presented.

Azimuthal asymmetries in unpolarized SIDIS can be used to probe the transverse momentum of the quarks inside the nucleon. Furthermore they give access to the so-far unmeasured Boer-Mulders function. We report on the extraction of these asymmetries from the COMPASS data taken with a 160 GeV/c $\\mu ^+$ beam impinging on a deuteron target. This asymmetries have been extracted separately for positive and negative hadrons, and the results have been compared with theoretical predictions.

Future Programme of COMPASS at CERN
Gerhard K. Mallot
2012-06-12T23:59:59.000Z
COMPASS at CERN is preparing for a new series of measurements on the nucleon structure comprising deep virtual Compton scattering and hard exclusive meson production using muon beams, as well as Drell-Yan reactions using a polarised proton target and a negative pion beam. The former will mainly constrain the generalised parton distribution H and determine the transverse size of the nucleon, while the latter measurements will provide information on transverse-momentum dependent parton distribution functions. The projected results of the programme and the necessary hardware upgrades are discussed.
Measurement of Transverse Spin Effects at COMPASS
Anselm Vossen
2007-05-20T23:59:59.000Z
By measuring transverse single spin asymmetries one has access to the transversity distribution function $\\Delta_T q(x)$ and the transverse momentum dependent Sivers function $q_0^T(x,\\vec{k}_T)$. New measurements from identified hadrons and hadron pairs, produced in deep inelastic scattering of a transversely polarized $^6LiD$ target are presented. The data were taken in 2003 and 2004 by the COMPASS collaboration using the muon beam of the CERN SPS at 160 GeV/c, resulting in small asymmetries.
Single hadron transverse spin asymmetries from COMPASS

2007-02-02T23:59:59.000Z
Transverse spin physics is an important part of the scientific programme of the COMPASS experiment at CERN. The analysis of the data taken with the target polarized orthogonally to the 160 GeV/c muon beam momentum has allowed to measure for the first time the Collins and Sivers asymmetries of the deuteron. Both for the positive and the negative hadrons produced in semi-inclusive DIS the measured asymmetries are small and, within errors, compatible with zero. New results for charged pions and kaons are presented here.
Hard Exclusive ?^0-Meson Production at COMPASS

New results for the transverse target spin azimuthal asymmetry A_{UT}^{sin(\\phi-\\phi_S)} for hard exclusive \\rho^0-meson production on a transversely polarised ^6LiD and NH_3 target will be presented. The measurement was performed with the COMPASS detector using the 160 GeV/c muon beam of the SPS at CERN. The asymmetry is sensitive to the nucleon helicity-flip generalised parton distribution E, which is related to the orbital angular momentum of quarks in the nucleon.

Diffractive Dissociation into ?- ?- ?+ Final States at COMPASS
Florian Haas; for the COMPASS Collaboration
2011-12-15T23:59:59.000Z
Diffractive dissociation reactions studied at the COMPASS experiment at CERN provide access to the light-meson spectrum. During a pilot run in 2004, using a pion beam and a lead target, 420k \\pi- \\pi- \\pi+ final-state events with masses below 2.5 GeV/c2 were recorded, yielding a significant spin-exotic signal for the controversial \\pi 1(1600) resonance. After a significant upgrade of the spectrometer in 2007, the following two years were dedicated to meson spectroscopy. Using again a pion beam, but now with a liquid hydrogen target, an unique statistics of ~60M events of the same final state was gathered in 2008. During a short campaign in 2009, the H2 target was exchanged by several solid state targets in order to compare final states produced on targets with different atomic numbers. A partial-wave Analysis (PWA) was performed on all these data sets and results are presented.
Light-Meson Spectroscopy with COMPASS
Boris Grube for the COMPASS Collaboration
2010-12-10T23:59:59.000Z
COMPASS is a multi-purpose fixed-target experiment at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron investigating the structure and spectrum of hadrons. One primary goal is the search for new hadronic states, in particular spin-exotic mesons and glueballs. After a short pilot run in 2004 with a 190 GeV/c $\\pi^-$ beam on a Pb target, which showed a significant spin-exotic $J^{PC} = 1^{-+}$ resonance consistent with the controversial $\\pi_1(1600)$, COMPASS collected large data samples with negative and positive hadron beams on H$_2$, Ni, W, and Pb targets in 2008 and 2009. We present results from a partial-wave analysis of diffractive dissociation of 190 GeV/c $\\pi^-$ into $\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ final states on Pb and H$_2$ targets with squared four-momentum transfer in the range 0.1 < t' < 1 (GeV/c)^2. This reaction provides clean access to the light-quark meson spectrum up to masses of 2.5 GeV/c^2. A first comparison of the data from Pb and H$_2$ target shows a strong target dependence of the production strength of states with spin projections $M = 0$ and 1 relative to the $a_2(1320)$. The 2004 Pb data were also analyzed in the region of small squared four-momentum transfer t' < 10^{-2} (GeV/c)^2, where we observe interference of diffractive production and photoproduction in the Coulomb-field of the Pb nucleus.
Transverse spin azimuthal asymmetries in SIDIS at COMPASS: Multidimensional analysis
Bakur Parsamyan
2015-04-08T23:59:59.000Z
COMPASS is a high-energy physics experiment operating at the SPS at CERN. Wide physics program of the experiment comprises study of hadron structure and spectroscopy with high energy muon and hadrons beams. As for the muon-program, one of the important objectives of the COMPASS experiment is the exploration of the transverse spin structure of the nucleon via spin (in)dependent azimuthal asymmetries in single-hadron production in deep inelastic scattering of polarized leptons off transversely polarized target. For this purpose a series of measurements were made in COMPASS, using 160 GeV/c longitudinally polarized muon beam and transversely polarized $^{6}LiD$ (in 2002, 2003 and 2004) and $NH_{3}$ (in 2007 and 2010) targets. The experimental results obtained by COMPASS for unpolarized target azimuthal asymmetries, Sivers and Collins effects and other azimuthal observables play an important role in the general understanding of the three-dimensional nature of the nucleon. Giving access to the entire "twsit-2" set of transverse momentum dependent parton distribution functions and fragmentation functions COMPASS data triggers constant theoretical interest and is being widely used in phenomenological analyses and global data fits. In this review main focus is given to the very recent results obtained by the COMPASS collaboration from first ever multi-dimensional extraction of transverse spin asymmetries.

Highlights from COMPASS in hadron spectroscopy
Krinner, Fabian
2015-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
Since Quantum Choromdynamics allows for gluon self-coupling, quarks and gluons cannot be observed as free particles, but only their bound states, the hadrons. This so-called confinement phenomenon is responsible for $98\\%$ of the mass in the visible universe. The measurement of the hadron excitation spectra therefore gives valuable input for theory and phenomenology to quantitatively understand this phenomenon. One simple model to describe hadrons is the Constituent Quark Model (CQM), which knows two types of hadrons: mesons, consisting of a quark and an antiquark, and baryons, which are made out of three quarks. More advanced models, which are inspired by QCD as well as calculations within Lattice QCD predict the existence of other types of hadrons, which may be e.g. described solely by gluonic excitations (glueballs) or mixed quark and gluon excitations (hybrids). In order to search for such states, the COMPASS experiment at the Super Proton Synchrotron at CERN has collected large data sets, which allow to ...
New results on transverse spin asymmetries from COMPASS
Bakur Parsamyan
2014-11-07T23:59:59.000Z
One of the important objectives of the COMPASS experiment is the exploration of transverse spin structure of nucleon via spin (in)dependent azimuthal asymmetries in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering (SIDIS) of polarized leptons (and soon also Drell-Yan (DY) reactions with $\\pi^-$) off transversely polarized target. For this purpose a series of measurements were made in COMPASS, using 160 GeV/c longitudinally polarized muon beam and polarized $^6LiD$ and $NH_3$ targets and are foreseen with 190 GeV/c $\\pi^-$ beam on polarized $NH_3$. The experimental results obtained by COMPASS for azimuthal effects in SIDIS play an important role in the general understanding of the three-dimensional nature of the nucleon and are widely used in theoretical analyses and global data fits. Future first ever polarized DY-data from COMPASS compared with SIDIS results will open a new chapter probing general principles of QCD TMD-formalism. In this review main focus will be given to the very recent COMPASS results obtained for SIDIS transverse spin asymmetries from four "Drell-Yan" $Q^2$-ranges.

COMPASS Results on Transverse Single-Spin Asymmetries
Anna Martin
2007-02-01T23:59:59.000Z
New results on single spin asymmetries of charged hadrons produced in deep-inelastic scattering of muons on a transversely polarised LiD target are presented. The data were taken in the years 2002, 2003 and 2004 with the COMPASS spectrometer using the muon beam of the CERN SPS at 160 GeV/c. Preliminary results are given for the Sivers asymmetry and for all the three ``quark polarimeters'' presently used in COMPASS to measure the transversity distributions. The Collins and the Sivers asymmetries for charged hadrons turn out to be compatible with zero, within the small (~1%) statistical errors, at variance with the results from HERMES on a transversely polarised proton target. Similar results have been obtained for the two hadron asymmetries and for the Lambda polarisation. First attempts to describe the Collins and the Sivers asymmetries measured by COMPASS and HERMES allow to give a consistent picture of these transverse spin effects.
Compass and Kitaev models -- Theory and Physical Motivations
Zohar Nussinov; Jeroen van den Brink
2013-03-24T23:59:59.000Z
Compass models are theories of matter in which the couplings between the internal spin (or other relevant field) components are inherently spatially (typically, direction) dependent. Compass-type interactions appear in diverse physical systems including Mott insulators with orbital degrees of freedom (where interactions sensitively depend on the spatial orientation of the orbitals involved), the low energy effective theories of frustrated quantum magnets, systems with strong spin-orbit couplings (such as the iridates), vacancy centers, and cold atomic gases. Kitaev's models, in particular the compass variant on the honeycomb lattice, realize basic notions of topological quantum computing. The fundamental inter-dependence between internal (spin, orbital, or other) and external (i.e., spatial) degrees of freedom which underlies compass models generally leads to very rich behaviors including the frustration of (semi-)classical ordered states on non-frustrated lattices and to enhanced quantum effects prompting, in certain cases, the appearance of zero temperature quantum spin liquids. As a consequence of these frustrations, new types of symmetries and their associated degeneracies may appear. These intermediate symmetries lie midway between the extremes of global symmetries and local gauge symmetries and lead to effective dimensional reductions. We review compass models in a unified manner, paying close attention to exact consequences of these symmetries, and to thermal and quantum fluctuations that stabilize orders via order out of disorder effects. We review non-trivial statistics and the appearance of topological quantum orders in compass systems in which, by virtue of their intermediate symmetry standard orders do not arise. This is complemented by a survey of numerical results. Where appropriate theoretical and experimental results are compared.

COMPASS results on Collins and Sivers asymmetries for charged hadrons
Anna Martin
2013-03-08T23:59:59.000Z
The study of transverse spin and transverse momentum effects is an important part of the scientific program of COMPASS, a fixed target experiment at the CERN SPS taking data since 2002. The studies are carried on by measuring the hadrons produced in deep inelastic scattering (DIS) of 160 GeV/c muons off different targets. Among the possible asymmetries in the hadron azimuthal distributions, particularly interesting are the Collins and Sivers asymmetries which the COMPASS Collaboration has measured using transversely polarised deuteron and proton targets. The new results for charged pions and kaons obtained from the 2010 run with a transversely polarised proton target are presented.
GPDs at HERA and perspectives at COMPASS
Laurent Schoeffel
2009-08-18T23:59:59.000Z
Measurements of the deep-inelastic scattering (DIS) of leptons and nucleons, $e+p\\to e+X$, allow the extraction of Parton Distribution Functions (PDFs) which describe the longitudinal momentum carried by the quarks, anti-quarks and gluons that make up the fast-moving nucleons. While PDFs provide crucial input to perturbative Quantum Chromodynamic (QCD) calculations of processes involving hadrons, they do not provide a complete picture of the partonic structure of nucleons. In particular, PDFs contain neither information on the correlations between partons nor on their transverse motion. Hard exclusive processes, in which the nucleon remains intact, have emerged in recent years as prime candidates to complement this essentially one dimentional picture. The simplest exclusive process is the deeply virtual Compton scattering (DVCS) or exclusive production of real photon, $e + p \\to e + \\gamma + p$. This process is of particular interest as it has both a clear experimental signature and is calculable in perturbative QCD. The DVCS reaction can be regarded as the elastic scattering of the virtual photon off the proton via a colourless exchange, producing a real photon in the final state. In the Bjorken scaling regime, QCD calculations assume that the exchange involves two partons, having different longitudinal and transverse momenta, in a colourless configuration. These unequal momenta or skewing are a consequence of the mass difference between the incoming virtual photon and the outgoing real photon. This skewedness effect can be interpreted in the context of generalised parton distributions (GPDs). In this proceeding, we examine typical measurements from HERA and prospects for COMPASS at CERN, that can bring new insights on the quarks/gluons imaging of the nucleon.
Highlights from COMPASS in hadron spectroscopy
Fabian Krinner
2014-12-31T23:59:59.000Z
Since Quantum Choromdynamics allows for gluon self-coupling, quarks and gluons cannot be observed as free particles, but only their bound states, the hadrons. This so-called confinement phenomenon is responsible for $98\\%$ of the mass in the visible universe. The measurement of the hadron excitation spectra therefore gives valuable input for theory and phenomenology to quantitatively understand this phenomenon. One simple model to describe hadrons is the Constituent Quark Model (CQM), which knows two types of hadrons: mesons, consisting of a quark and an antiquark, and baryons, which are made out of three quarks. More advanced models, which are inspired by QCD as well as calculations within Lattice QCD predict the existence of other types of hadrons, which may be e.g. described solely by gluonic excitations (glueballs) or mixed quark and gluon excitations (hybrids). In order to search for such states, the COMPASS experiment at the Super Proton Synchrotron at CERN has collected large data sets, which allow to study the light-quark meson and baryon spectra in unmatched precision. The overview shown here focuses on the light meson sector, presenting a detailed Partial-Wave Analysis of the processes: $\\pi^- p \\to \\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^- p$ and $\\pi^-p\\to \\pi^-\\pi^0\\pi^0p$. A new state, the $a_1(1420)$ with $J^{PC}=1^{++}$ is observed. Its Breit-Wigner parameters are found to be in the ranges: $m = 1412-1422\\,\\mathrm{MeV}/c^2$ and $\\Gamma = 130-150\\,\\mathrm{MeV}/c^2$. In the same analysis, a signal in a wave with $J^{PC}=1^{-+}$ is observed. A resonant origin of this signal would not be explicable within the CQM. In addition to this possibility of an exotic state, a possible non resonant origin of this signal is discussed.
Transverse spin azimuthal asymmetries in SIDIS at COMPASS: Multidimensional analysis
Parsamyan, Bakur
2015-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
COMPASS is a high-energy physics experiment operating at the SPS at CERN. Wide physics program of the experiment comprises study of hadron structure and spectroscopy with high energy muon and hadrons beams. As for the muon-program, one of the important objectives of the COMPASS experiment is the exploration of the transverse spin structure of the nucleon via spin (in)dependent azimuthal asymmetries in single-hadron production in deep inelastic scattering of polarized leptons off transversely polarized target. For this purpose a series of measurements were made in COMPASS, using 160 GeV/c longitudinally polarized muon beam and transversely polarized 6LiD (in 2002, 2003 and 2004) and NH3 (in 2007 and 2010) targets. The experimental results obtained by COMPASS for unpolarized target azimuthal asymmetries, Sivers and Collins effects and other azimuthal observables play an important role in the general understanding of the three-dimensional nature of the nucleon. Giving access to the entire "twsit-2" set of transv...

2015-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
For ITER-relevant runaway electron studies, such as suppression, mitigation, termination and/or control of runaway beam, obtaining the runaway electrons after the disruption is important. In this paper we report on the first achieved discharges with post-disruptive runaway electron beam, entitled "runaway plateau", in the COMPASS tokamak. The runaway plateau is produced by massive gas injection of argon. Almost all of the disruptions with runaway electron plateaus occurred during the plasma current ramp-up phase. Comparison between the Ar injection discharges with and without plateau has been done for various parameters. Parametrisation of the discharges shows that COMPASS disruptions fulfill the range of parameters important for the runaway plateau occurrence. These parameters include electron density, electric field, disruption speed, effective safety factor, maximum current quench electric field. In addition to these typical parameters, the plasma current value just before the massive gas injection surpris...
Quantum control and entanglement in a chemical compass
Jianming Cai; Gian Giacomo Guerreschi; Hans J. Briegel
2010-05-10T23:59:59.000Z
The radical pair mechanism is one of the two main hypotheses to explain the navigability of animals in weak magnetic fields, enabling e.g. birds to see the Earth's magnetic field. It also plays an essential role in the field of spin chemistry. Here, we show how quantum control can be used to either enhance or reduce the performance of such a chemical compass, providing a new route to further study the radical pair mechanism and its applications. We study the role of quantum entanglement in this mechanism, and demonstrate intriguing connections between radical-pair entanglement and the magnetic field sensitivity of the compass. Beyond their immediate application to the radical pair mechanism, these results also demonstrate how state-of-the-art quantum technologies could potentially be used to probe and control biological functions.
Azimuthal asymmetries in the unpolarized SIDIS cross section at COMPASS
Giulio Sbrizzai for the COMPASS Collaboration
2011-01-24T23:59:59.000Z
The study of the spin structure of the nucleon and of the effects rising from the quarks transverse momentum are part of the scientific program of COMPASS, a fixed target experiment at the CERN SPS. The azimuthal asymmetries which appear in the cross-section of SIDIS off unpolarized targets can give insights on the intrinsic momentum structure of the nucleon and on the possible correlation between transverse spin and transverse momentum of the quarks. Here we present the new results for these asymmetries obtained from the COMPASS data collected with a 160 GeV/c positive muon beam impinging on a $^6LiD$ target. The asymmetries are measured for both positive and negative hadrons, and their dependence on several kinematical variable has been studied
Frustration and Entanglement in Compass and Spin-Orbital Models
Andrzej M. Ole?
2014-10-24T23:59:59.000Z
We review the consequences of intrinsic frustration of the orbital superexchange and of spin-orbital entanglement. While Heisenberg perturbing interactions remove frustration in the compass model, the lowest columnar excitations are robust in the nanoscopic compass clusters and might be used for quantum computations. Entangled spin-orbital states determine the ground states in some cases, while in others concern excited states and lead to measurable consequences, as in the $R$VO$_3$ perovskites. On-site entanglement for strong spin-orbit coupling generates the frustrated Kitaev-Heisenberg model with a rich magnetic phase diagram on the honeycomb lattice. Frustration is here reflected in hole propagation which changes from coherent in an antiferromagnet via hidden quasiparticles in zigzag and stripe phases to entirely incoherent one in the Kitaev spin liquid.
Azimuthal asymmetries in SIDIS off unpolarized targets at COMPASS

Azimuthal asymmetries measured in unpolarized semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering bring important information on the inner structure of the nucleons, and can be used both to estimate the average quark transverse momentum k_T and to access the so-far unmeasured Boer-Mulders functions. COMPASS results using part of the 2004 data collected with a 6LiD target and a 160 GeV positive muon beam are presented separately for positive and negative hadrons.
Transverse Spin Structure of the Nucleon from COMPASS

The measurement of transverse spin effects in semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering is an important part of the COMPASS physics program. In the years 2002-2004 data were taken by scattering a 160 GeV muon beam on a transversely polarized deuteron target. In 2007, additional data were collected on a transversely polarized proton target. New results for the Collins and Sivers asymmetries from the analysis of the proton data are presented.

In order to illustrate the capabilities of COMPASS using a hadronic beam, I review some of the azimuthal asymmetries in hadronic collisions, that allow for the extraction of transversity, Sivers and Boer-Mulders functions, necessary to explore the partonic spin structure of the nucleon. I also report on some Monte Carlo simulations of such asymmetries for the production of Drell-Yan lepton pairs from the collision of high-energy pions on a transversely polarized proton target.
Transverse Spin and Transverse Momentum Effects at COMPASS
C. Schill; for the COMPASS Collaboration
2011-10-05T23:59:59.000Z
The investigation of transverse spin and transverse momentum effects in deep inelastic scattering is one of the key physics programs of the COMPASS collaboration. In the years 2002-2004 COMPASS took data scattering 160 GeV muons on a transversely polarized 6LiD target. In 2007, a transversely polarized NH3 target was used. Three different channels to access the transversity distribution function have been analyzed: The azimuthal distribution of single hadrons, involving the Collins fragmentation function, the azimuthal dependence of the plane containing hadron pairs, involving the two-hadron interference fragmentation function, and the measurement of the transverse polarization of lambda hyperons in the final state. Transverse quark momentum effects in a transversely polarized nucleon have been investigated by measuring the Sivers distribution function. Azimuthal asymmetries in unpolarized semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering give important information on the inner structure of the nucleon as well, and can be used to estimate both the quark transverse momentum in an unpolarized nucleon and to access the so-far unmeasured Boer-Mulders function. COMPASS has measured these asymmetries in 2004 using spin-averaged 6LiD data.

Gluon polarisation from high transverse momentum hadron pairs production (COMPASS)
L. Silva; for the COMPASS Collaboration
2010-10-08T23:59:59.000Z
A new preliminary result of a gluon polarisation \\Delta G/G obtained selecting high transverse momentum hadron pairs in DIS events with Q^2>1 (GeV/c)^2 is presented. Data has been collected by COMPASS at CERN during the 2002-2004 years. In the extraction of $\\Delta G/G$ contributions coming from the leading order $\\gamma q$ and QCD processes are taken into account. A new weighting method based on a neural network approach is used. Also a preliminary result of \\Delta G/G for events with Q^2<1 (GeV/c)^2 is presented.
New measurement of DeltaG/G at COMPASS
S. Procureur
2006-05-14T23:59:59.000Z
One of the main goals of the COMPASS experiment at CERN is the determination of the gluon polarisation in the nucleon, DeltaG/G. It is extracted from the spin asymmetry in the scattering of a polarized 160 GeV muon beam on a polarized LiD target, by selecting photon-gluon fusion events. These events are tagged by the production of open charm or high pT hadron pairs. We present the results obtained for DeltaG/G(x) in both channels. For the first time, preliminary results of 2004 data in the high pT channel are also shown.
Magnetic Sensitivity and Entanglement Dynamics of the Chemical Compass

2012-07-25T23:59:59.000Z
We present the quantum limits to the magnetic sensitivity of a new kind of magnetometer based on biochemical reactions. Radical-ion-pair reactions, the biochemical system underlying the chemical compass, are shown to offer a new and unique physical realization of a magnetic field sensor competitive to modern atomic or condensed matter magnetometers. We elaborate on the quantum coherence and entanglement dynamics of this sensor, showing that they provide the physical basis for testing our understanding of the fundamental quantum dynamics of radical-ion-pair reactions.
Test of OZI violation in vector meson production with COMPASS
Johannes Bernhard; Karin Schönning; for the COMPASS collaboration
2012-03-28T23:59:59.000Z
The COMPASS experiment at CERN SPS completed its data taking with hadron beams (p, \\pi, K) in the years 2008 and 2009 by collecting a large set of data using different targets (H2, Pb, Ni, W). These data are dedicated to hadron spectroscopy, where the focus is directed to the search for exotic bound states of quarks and gluons (hybrids, glueballs). The production of such states is known to be favoured in glue-rich environments, e.g. so-called OZI-forbidden processes. The OZI rule postulates that processes with disconnected quark line diagrams are forbidden. On the one hand, the study of the degree of OZI violation in vector meson production yields the possibility to learn more about the involved production mechanisms. On the other hand it helps to understand the nucleon's structure itself. Contrary to former experiments, the large data sample allows for detailed studies in respect to Feynman's variable xF. We present results from the ongoing analysis on the comparison of \\omega and \\phi vector mesons production in pp->p(\\omega/\\phi)p, where the possibility of measuring the spin alignment of both vector mesons at the same time makes COMPASS unique.
Transverse spin asymmetries at COMPASS: beyond Collins and Sivers effects
Parsamyan, Bakur
2013-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
One of the important objectives of the COMPASS experiment (SPS, CERN) \\cite{Abbon:2007pq} is the exploration of the transverse spin structure of the nucleon via spin dependent azimuthal asymmetries in single-hadron production in deep inelastic scattering of polarized leptons off transversely polarized targets. For this purpose a series of measurements were made in COMPASS, using 160 GeV/c longitudinally polarized muon beam and transversely polarized $^6LiD$ (in 2002, 2003 and 2004) and $NH_3$ (in 2007 and 2010) targets. In the past few years considerable theoretical interest and experimental efforts were focused on the study of Collins and Sivers transverse spin asymmetries. The experimental results obtained so far play an important role in the general understanding of the three-dimensional nature of the nucleon in terms of transverse momentum dependent parton distribution functions. In addition to these two measured leading-twist effects, the SIDIS cross-section includes six more target transverse spin depen...

Exclusively produced rho^0 asymmetries on the deuteron and future GPD measurements at COMPASS
C. Schill; for the COMPASS Collaboration
2008-08-01T23:59:59.000Z
Generalized parton distributions (GPDs) provide a new and powerful framework for a complete description of the nucleon structure. They can provide a three-dimensional picture of how the quarks and gluons form a nucleon. GPDs can be probed experimentally in hard exclusive meson production or deeply virtual Compton scattering (DVCS). The COMPASS experiment at CERN is a unique place to study these reactions. At COMPASS, a high energy polarized positive or negative muon beam is scattered off a polarized or unpolarized fixed target. First results for exclusive rho^0 meson production are shown. The transverse target spin asymmetry for exclusively produced rho^0 on a transversely polarized deuteron target has been measured. Prospects for future measurements of DVCS and exclusive meson production at COMPASS will be shown. The experiment will use the existing COMPASS spectrometer with a new target, a new recoil detector and extended calorimetry. Simulations for different models and a test of the recoil detector have been performed.
Quantum limit for avian magnetoreception: How sensitive can a chemical compass be?
Jianming Cai; Filippo Caruso; Martin B. Plenio
2011-10-31T23:59:59.000Z
The chemical compass model, based on radical pair reactions, is a fascinating idea to explain avian magnetoreception. At present, questions concerning the key ingredients responsible for the high sensitivity of a chemical compass and the possible role of quantum coherence and decoherence remain unsolved. Here, we investigate the optimized hyperfine coupling for a chemical compass in order to achieve the best magnetic field sensitivity. We show that its magnetic sensitivity limit can be further extended by simple quantum control and may benefit from additional decoherence. With this, we clearly demonstrate how quantum coherence can be exploited in the functioning of a chemical compass. The present results also provide new routes towards the design of a biomimetic weak magnetic field sensor.

COMPASS Hadron Spectroscopy -- Final states involving neutrals and kaons
Frank Nerling; for the COMPASS collaboration
2010-09-11T23:59:59.000Z
The COMPASS experiment at CERN is well designed for light-hadron spectroscopy with emphasis on the detection of new states, in particular the search for $J^{PC}$-exotic states and glueballs. We have collected data with 190 GeV/c charged hadron beams on a liquid hydrogen and nuclear targets in 2008/09. The spectrometer features good coverage by electromagnetic calorimetry and a RICH detector further provides $\\pi$ / $K$ separation, allowing for studying final states involving neutral particles like $\\pi^0$ or $\\eta$ as well as hidden strangeness, respectively. We discuss the status of ongoing analyses with specific focus on diffractively produced $(\\pi^0\\pi^0\\pi)^{-}$ as well as $(K\\bar{K}\\pi)^{-}$ final states.
Direct Measurement of \\DeltaG/G at Compass
Yann Bedfer; for the COMPASS Collaboration
2006-01-19T23:59:59.000Z
The gluon polarization $\\Delta{G}/G$ is the key to a further clarification of the spin structure of the nucleon. The COMPASS collaboration at CERN has set out to undertake the direct determination of this quantity. It accesses the gluon distribution via the photon-gluon fusion process (PGF) in scattering polarized muons off a polarized deuteron target. And it explores three different channels to tag the PGF: open charm production and high transverse momentum (high p_T), in either electroproduction (Q^2 > 1 GeV^2) or quasi-real photoproduction (Q^2 < 1 GeV^2). The high p_T quasi-real photoproduction channel yields the most precise measurement. The result indicates that the gluon polarization is small. I describe its experimental aspects and its theoretical framework, based on PYTHIA. And I report on the preliminary results obtained in the other two channels, and on the prospects for future analysis and data taking.
New COMPASS results on Collins and Sivers asymmetries
F. Bradamante; for the COMPASS Collaboration
2011-11-03T23:59:59.000Z
The study of transverse spin and transverse momentum effects is an important part of the scientific program of COMPASS, a fixed target experiment at the CERN SPS. For these studies a 160 GeV/c momentum muon beam is scattered on a transversely polarized nucleon target, and the scattered muon and the forward going hadrons produced in DIS processes are reconstructed and identified in a magnetic spectrometer. The measurements have been performed on a deuteron target in 2002, 2003 and 2004, and on a proton target in 2007 and 2010. The results obtained for the Collins and Sivers asymmetries from the data collected in 2010 are here presented for the first time. They nicely confirm the findings of the 2007 run and allow for reduction of the errors by more than a factor of two.
Transversity Signal in two Hadron Pair Production in COMPASS
H. Wollny; for the COMPASS collaboration
2009-07-06T23:59:59.000Z
Measuring single spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering (SIDIS) on a transversely polarized target gives a handle to investigate the transversity distribution and transverse momentum dependent distribution functions. In the years 2002, 2003 and 2004 COMPASS took data with a transversely polarized deuteron target and in the year 2007 with a proton target. Three channels for accessing transversity have been analysed. Azimuthal asymmetries in the production of hadron pairs, involving the polarized two hadron interference fragmentation function, azimuthal asymmetries in the production of single hadrons, involving the Collins fragmentation function and polarization measurements of spin-${1/2} \\hbar$ particles like $\\Lambda$-Hyperons via their self analyzing weak decay. In the following we will focus on new preliminary results from the analysis of two hadron pair asymmetries measured with the proton target.
Double spin asymmetry in exclusive rho^0 muoproduction at COMPASS
COMPASS Collaboration; M. Alekseev
2007-07-10T23:59:59.000Z
The longitudinal double spin asymmetry A_1^rho for exclusive leptoproduction of rho^0 mesons, mu + N -> mu + N + rho, is studied using the COMPASS 2002 and 2003 data. The measured reaction is incoherent exclusive rho^0 production on polarised deuterons. The Q^2 and x dependence of A_1^rho is presented in a wide kinematical range: 3x10^-3 < Q^2 < 7 (GeV/c)^2 and 5x10^-5 < x < 0.05. The presented results are the first measurements of A_1^rho at small Q2 (Q2 < 0.1 (GeV/c)^2) and small x (x < 3x10^-3). The asymmetry is in general compatible with zero in the whole kinematical range.
Transversity Signals in Two-Hadron Production at COMPASS
C. Schill
2007-06-12T23:59:59.000Z
New results on single spin asymmetries of identified charged pion and kaon pairs produced in deep-inelastic scattering of muons on a transversely polarized 6LiD target are presented. The data were taken in the years 2003 and 2004 with the COMPASS spectrometer at CERN with a 160 GeV muon beam from the CERN SPS accelerator. The asymmetries can be interpreted in the context of transversity as a convolution of the chiral-odd interference fragmentation function $H_1^\\sphericalangle$ with the transverse spin distribution of quarks $\\Delta_Tq(x)$. The measured azimuthal target spin asymmetries on the deuteron are compatible with zero within a small statistical error of about 1%.
Comment on "Quantum Control and Entanglement in a Chemical Compass"
I. K. Kominis
2011-02-19T23:59:59.000Z
In this comment we show that the avian compass entanglement considerations of J. Cai, G. G. Guerreschi and H. J. Briegel (Phys. Rev. Lett. 104, 220502 (2010)) result in unphysical predictions on the magnetic sensitivity of this biochemical sensor. As well known from a series of papers on precision measurements and detailed derivations of standard quantum limits, not taking into account decoherence results in an overestimate of the entanglement lifetime, and this is the case at hand. The entanglement lifetime is wrongly assumed by the authors to be independent of the reaction time (the inverse of the recombination rate) and hence it is grossly overestimated. This is so because the spin coherence lifetime is limited by the reaction time, and the entanglement lifetime cannot be any longer.
Sustained Quantum Coherence and Entanglement in the Avian Compass

2011-01-30T23:59:59.000Z
In artificial systems, quantum superposition and entanglement typically decay rapidly unless cryogenic temperatures are used. Could life have evolved to exploit such delicate phenomena? Certain migratory birds have the ability to sense very subtle variations in Earth's magnetic field. Here we apply quantum information theory and the widely accepted "radical pair" model to analyze recent experimental observations of the avian compass. We find that superposition and entanglement are sustained in this living system for at least tens of microseconds, exceeding the durations achieved in the best comparable man-made molecular systems. This conclusion is starkly at variance with the view that life is too "warm and wet" for such quantum phenomena to endure.

Generalised parton distributions at HERA and prospects for COMPASS
L. Schoeffel
2007-10-18T23:59:59.000Z
We present a model of generalised parton distributions based on a forward ansatz in the DGLAP region. We discuss some aspects of the parametrisations, as the dependence in t, with factorised and non-factorised approaches, where t is the square of the four-momentum exchanged at the hadron vertex. The predictions of this model are then compared with DVCS cross sections from H1 and ZEUS, and a related observable, the skewing factor, defined as the following ratio imaginary amplitudes : $R \\equiv {Im {\\cal A} (\\gamma^*+p \\to \\gamma +p)\\lfrestriction{t=0}} / {Im {\\cal A} (\\gamma^*+p \\to \\gamma^* +p)\\lfrestriction{t=0}}$. It is an interesting quantity including both the non-forward kinematics and the non-diagonal effects. Finally, we discuss the beam charge asymmetry, which is certainly the most sensitive observable to the different hypothesis needed in the GPDs parametrisations. We show that the approximations done for the t dependence lead to significant differences for the predictions in the HERMES kinematic domain and prospects are given for COMPASS.
Recent measurement of Delta G/G at COMPASS
Colin Bernet; for the COMPASS collaboration
2005-07-11T23:59:59.000Z
We present a preliminary measurement of the gluon polarization Delta G/G in the nucleon, based on the spin asymmetry of quasi-real photoproduction events for which a pair of large transverse momentum hadrons is produced. The data were obtained by the COMPASS experiment at CERN using a 160 GeV polarized muon beam scattered on a large polarized 6LiD target. The preliminary helicity asymmetry for the selected events is A_||/D = 0.002 +- 0.019(stat) +- 0.003(syst). From this value, a leading order analysis based on the model of PYTHIA leads to the gluon polarization in the nucleon Delta G/G(x_g=0.095, mu^2=3 GeV^2)=0.024 +- 0.089(stat) +- 0.057(syst). This value is consistent with parameterizations obtained from QCD fits to the g_1 data, with a first moment Delta G lower than 1, at the same scale.

The Radical Pair Mechanism and the Avian Chemical Compass: Quantum Coherence and Entanglement
Zhang, Yiteng; Kais, Sabre
2015-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
We review the spin radical pair mechanism which is a promising explanation of avian navigation. This mechanism is based on the dependence of product yields on (1) the hyperfine interaction involving electron spins and neighboring nuclear spins and (2) the intensity and orientation of the geomagnetic field. One surprising result is that even at ambient conditions quantum entanglement of electron spins can play an important role in avian magnetoreception. This review describes the general scheme of chemical reactions involving radical pairs generated from singlet and triplet precursors; the spin dynamics of the radical pairs; and the magnetic field dependence of product yields caused by the radical pair mechanism. The main part of the review includes a description of the chemical compass in birds. We review: the general properties of the avian compass; the basic scheme of the radical pair mechanism; the reaction kinetics in cryptochrome; quantum coherence and entanglement in the avian compass; and the effects o...

Earth's magnetic field is essential for orientation in birds migration. The most promising explanation for this orientation is the photo-stimulated radical pair (RP) mechanism, conjectured to occur in cryptochrome photoreceptors. The radicals must have an intrinsic anisotropy in order to define a reference frame for the compass. This anisotropy, when introduced through hyperfine interactions, imposes immobility of the RP, and implies that entanglement between the unpaired electrons of the RP is preserved over long coherence times. We show that this kind of anisotropy, and consequently the entanglement in the model, are not necessary for the proper functioning of the compass. Classically correlated initial conditions for the RP, subjected to a fast decoherence process, are able to provide the anisotropy required. The environment in which the RP is immersed is then responsible for the reference frame of the compass, relaxing the immobility assumption. This fact significantly expands the range of applicability of the RP mechanism providing more elements for experimental search.
Determination of Delta G/G from Open Charm events at COMPASS
S. Koblitz
2007-07-06T23:59:59.000Z
One of the main goals of the COMPASS experiment at CERN is the determination of the gluon polarisation in the nucleon, Delta G/G. It is determined from spin asymmetries in the scattering of 160 GeV/c polarised muons on a polarised LiD target. The gluon polarisation is accessed by the selection of photon-gluon fusion (PGF) events. A very clean selection of PGF events can be obtained with charmed mesons in the final state. Their detection is based on the reconstruction of D* and D0 mesons in the COMPASS spectrometer. The analysis method for the first measurement of Delta G/G from the open charm channel is described and the result from COMPASS for the 2002-2004 data taking period is presented.

The Radical Pair Mechanism and the Avian Chemical Compass: Quantum Coherence and Entanglement
Yiteng Zhang; Gennady P. Berman; Sabre Kais
2015-03-23T23:59:59.000Z
We review the spin radical pair mechanism which is a promising explanation of avian navigation. This mechanism is based on the dependence of product yields on (1) the hyperfine interaction involving electron spins and neighboring nuclear spins and (2) the intensity and orientation of the geomagnetic field. One surprising result is that even at ambient conditions quantum entanglement of electron spins can play an important role in avian magnetoreception. This review describes the general scheme of chemical reactions involving radical pairs generated from singlet and triplet precursors; the spin dynamics of the radical pairs; and the magnetic field dependence of product yields caused by the radical pair mechanism. The main part of the review includes a description of the chemical compass in birds. We review: the general properties of the avian compass; the basic scheme of the radical pair mechanism; the reaction kinetics in cryptochrome; quantum coherence and entanglement in the avian compass; and the effects of noise. We believe that the "quantum avian compass" can play an important role in avian navigation and can also provide the foundation for a new generation of sensitive and selective magnetic-sensing nano-devices.

Polarized Drell-Yan at COMPASS-II: Transverse Spin Physics Program
Bakur Parsamyan
2015-04-08T23:59:59.000Z
Successful realization of polarized Drell-Yan physics program is one of the main goals of the second stage of the COMPASS experiment. Drell-Yan measurements with high energy (190 GeV/c) pion beam and transversely polarized NH3 target have been initiated by a pilot-run in the October 2014 and will be followed by 140 days of data taking in 2015. In the past twelve years COMPASS experiment performed series of SIDIS measurements with high energy muon beam and transversely polarized deuteron and proton targets. Results obtained for Sivers effect and other target transverse spin dependent and unpolarized azimuthal asymmetries in SIDIS serve as an important input for general understanding of spin-structure of the nucleon and are being used in numerous theoretical and phenomenological studies being carried out in the field of transvers-spin physics. Measurement of the Sivers and all other azimuthal effects in polarized Drell-Yan at COMPASS will reveal another side of the spin-puzzle providing a link between SIDIS and Drell-Yan branches. This will be a unique possibility to test universality and key-features of transverse momentum dependent distribution functions (TMD PDFs) using essentially same experimental setup and exploring same kinematic domain. In this review man physics aspects of future COMPASS polarized Drell-Yan measurement of azimuthal transverse spin asymmetries will be presented, giving a particular emphasis on the link with very recent COMPASS results obtained for SIDIS transverse spin asymmetries from four "Drell-Yan" $Q^2$-ranges.

The impact of the recent very precise CLAS and COMPASS g{sub 1}/F{sub 1} data on polarized parton densities and higher twist effects is discussed. It is demonstrated that the low Q{sup 2} CLAS data improve essentially our knowledge of higher twist corrections to the spin structure function g{sub 1}, while the large Q{sup 2} COMPASS dala influence mainly the strange quark and gluon polarizations which slightly decrease. It is shown that the uncertainties in the determination of the polarized parlon densities are significantly reduced. We find also that the present inclusive DIS data cannot rule out a negative polarized and changing in sign gluon densities.

We have reanalyzed the world data on inclusive polarized deep inelastic scattering (DIS) including the very precise CLAS proton and deuteron data, as well as the latest COMPASS data on the asymmetry A{sub 1}{sup d}, and have studied the impact of these data on polarized parton densities and higher twist effects. We demonstrate that the low Q{sup 2} CLAS data improve essentially our knowledge of higher twist corrections to the spin structure function g{sub 1}, while the large Q{sup 2} COMPASS data influence mainly the strange quark density. In our new analysis we find that a negative polarized gluon density, or one that changes sign as a function of x, cannot be ruled out on the basis of the present DIS data.
New results on the search for spin-exotic mesons with COMPASS
Frank Nerling; for the COMPASS Collaboration
2011-11-07T23:59:59.000Z
The COMPASS fixed-target experiment at the CERN-SPS studies the structure and spectrum of hadrons. One important goal using hadron beams is the search for new states, in particular spin-exotic mesons and glueballs. As a first input to the puzzle, COMPASS observed a significant $J^{PC}$ spin-exotic signal in the 2004 pilot run data (190\\,GeV/$c$ $\\pi^{-}$ beam, Pb target) in three charged pion final states consistent with the disputed $\\pi_1(1600)$. We started our hadron spectroscopy programme in 2008 by collecting very high statistics using a 190 GeV/$c$ negative pion beam scattered off a liquid hydrogen (proton) target. The current status and new results from the 2008 data on the search for the $\\pi_1(1600)$ resonance with exotic $J^{PC}=1^{-+}$ quantum numbers obtained from partial-wave analyses of the $\\rho\\pi$ and $\\eta'\\pi$ decay channels are presented.
Hadron production from $?-Deuteron$ scattering at $\\sqrt{s}=17 GeV$ at COMPASS
Astrid Morreale
2011-08-29T23:59:59.000Z
Hadrons proceeding from quasi-real photo-production are one of the many probes accesible at the Common Muon Proton Apparatus for Structure and Spectroscopy (COMPASS) at CERN. These hadrons provide information on the scattering between photon and partons through \\gamma-gluon(g) direct channels as well as q-g resolved processes. Comparisons of unpolarized differential cross section measurements to next-to-leading order (NLO) pQCD calculations are essential to develop our understanding of proton-proton and lepton-nucleon scattering at varying center of mass energies. These measurements are important to asses the applicability of NLO pQCD in interpreting polarized processes. In this talk we will present the unidentified charged separated hadron cross-sections measured by the COMPASS experiment at center of mass energy of \\sqrt{s}=17GeV, low Q^{2} (Q^{2}1.0 GeV/c.)
Diffractive Dissociation of 190 GeV/c $?^-$ into $?^-?^+?^-$ Final States at COMPASS

We present results from a Partial-Wave Analysis (PWA) of diffractive dissociation of 190 GeV/c $\\pi^-$ into $\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ final states on nuclear targets. A PWA of the data sample taken during a COMPASS pilot run in 2004 on a Pb target showed a significant spin-exotic $J^{PC} = 1^{-+}$ resonance consistent with the controversial $\\pi_1(1600)$, which is considered to be a candidate for a non-$q\\bar{q}$ mesonic state. In 2008 COMPASS collected a large diffractive $\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ data sample using a hydrogen target. A first comparison with the 2004 data shows a strong target dependence of the production strength of states with spin projections $M = 0$ and 1.

Several experiments over the years have shown that the Earth's magnetic field is essential for orientation in birds migration. The most promising explanation for this orientation is the photo-stimulated radical pair (RP) mechanism. In order to define a reference frame for the orientation task radicals must have an intrinsic anisotropy. We show that this kind of anisotropy, and consequently the entanglement in the model, are not necessary for the proper functioning of the compass. Classically correlated initial conditions for the RP, subjected to a fast decoherence process, are able to provide the anisotropy required. Even a dephasing environment can provide the necessary frame for the compass to work, and also implies fast decay of any quantum correlation in the system without damaging the orientation ability. This fact significantly expands the range of applicability of the RP mechanism providing more elements for experimental search.

The Detector Control System (DCS) of the COMPASS experiment at CERN is presented. The experiment has a high level of complexity and flexibility and a long time of operation, that constitute a challenge for its full monitorisation and control. A strategy to use a limited number of standardised, cost-effective, industrial solutions of hardware and software was pursued. When such solutions were not available or could not be used, customised solutions were developed.

$\\Deltag/g$ results from the Open Charm production at COMPASS
Celso Franco
2012-08-31T23:59:59.000Z
One of the main goals of the COMPASS experiment at CERN is the determination of the gluon contribution to the nucleon spin. To achieve this goal COMPASS uses a naturally polarised muon beam with an energy of 160 GeV and a fixed polarised target. Two types of materials are used for the latter: $^{6}$LiD (polarised deuterons) during the years of 2002-2006 and NH$_{3}$ (polarised protons) in 2007. The gluons in the nucleon can be accessed directly via the Photon Gluon Fusion (PGF) process. Among the channels studied by COMPASS, the production of charmed mesons is the one that tags a PGF interaction in the most clean and efficient way. This talk presents a result for the gluon polarisation, $\\Delta g/g$, which is based on a measurement of the spin asymmetry resulting from the production of D$^{0}$ mesons. These mesons are reconstructed through the invariant mass of their decay products. The statistical significance of the $D^{0}$ mass spectra has been improved significantly using a new method based on Neural Networks. The $\\Delta g/g$ result is also presented using a next-to-leading order (NLO-QCD) analysis of the $\\mu N \\rightarrow q\\bar{q}$ reaction. Such correction is relevant and was for the first time applied to an experimental measurement of the gluon polarisation.

We study the cross section for the photoproduction reaction gamma N -> h X in fixed-target scattering at COMPASS, where the hadron h is produced at large transverse momentum. We investigate the role played by higher-order QCD corrections to the cross section. In particular we address large logarithmic "threshold" corrections to the rapidity dependent partonic cross sections, which we resum to all orders at next-to-leading accuracy. In our comparison to the experimental data we find that the threshold contributions are large and improve the agreement between data and theoretical predictions significantly.
Measurement of Delta G/G from high transverse momentum hadron pairs in COMPASS

2008-09-10T23:59:59.000Z
The new COMPASS Delta G/G result obtained from high transverse momentum hadron pairs in the Q^2>1 GeV^2 region is presented. Comparing to the previous analysis in this region the statistical error of Delta G/G is reduced by a factor 3 to 0.10. A weighted method of the Delta G/G measurement based on neural network approach is used. In addition, the formula for the Delta G/G extraction used in the analysis has been updated. The contributions coming from the leading order and QCD Compton processes are no longer neglected.

The core Thomson scattering diagnostic (TS) on the COMPASS tokamak was put in operation and reported earlier. Implementation of edge TS, with spatial resolution along the laser beam up to ?1/100 of the tokamak minor radius, is presented now. The procedure for spatial calibration and alignment of both core and edge systems is described. Several further upgrades of the TS system, like a triggering unit and piezo motor driven vacuum window shutter, are introduced as well. The edge TS system, together with the core TS, is now in routine operation and provides electron temperature and density profiles.
Compass Results on Gluon Polarisation from High pT hadron pairs
L. Silva; for the COMPASS Collaboration
2010-10-13T23:59:59.000Z
One of the goals of the COMPASS experiment is the determination of the gluon polarisation \\Delta G/G, for a deep understanding of the spin structure of the nucleon. In DIS the gluon polarisation can be measured via the Photon-Gluon-Fusion (PGF) process, identified by open charm production or by selecting high p_T hadron pairs in the final state. The data used for this work were collected by the COMPASS experiment during the years 2002-2004, using a 160 GeV naturally polarised positive muon beam scattering on a polarised nucleon target. A new preliminary result of the gluon polarisation \\Delta G/G from high p_T hadron pairs in events with Q^2>1 (GeV/c)^2 is presented. In order to extract \\Delta G/G, this analysis takes into account the leading process \\gamma q contribution together with the PGF and QCD Compton processes. A new weighted method based on a neural network approach is used. A preliminary \\Delta G/G result for events from quasi-real photoproduction (Q^2<1 (GeV/c)^2) is also presented.
Exact treatment of magnetism-driven ferroelectricity in the one-dimensional compass model

2014-09-20T23:59:59.000Z
We consider a class of one-dimensional compass models with antisymmetric Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya exchange interaction in an external magnetic field. Based on the exact solution derived by means of Jordan-Wigner transformation, we study the excitation gap, spin correlations, ground-state degeneracy, and critical properties at phase transitions. The phase diagram at finite electric and magnetic field consists of three phases: ferromagnetic, canted antiferromagnetic, and chiral. Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction induces an electrical polarization in the ground state of the chiral phase, where the nonlocal string order and special features of entanglement spectra arise, while strong chiral correlations emerge at finite temperature in the other phases and are controlled by a gap between the nonchiral ground state and the chiral excitations. We further show that the magnetoelectric effects in all phases disappear above a typical temperature corresponding to the total bandwidth of the effective fermionic model. To this end we explore the entropy, specific heat, magnetization, electric polarization, and the magnetoelectric tensor at finite temperature. We identify rather peculiar specific-heat and polarization behavior of the compass model which follows from highly frustrated interactions.

The unpolarised transverse momentum dependent distribution and fragmentation functions (TMDs) are extracted from HERMES and COMPASS experimental measurements of semi- inclusive deep inelastic scattering multiplicities for charged hadron production. A simple factorised functional form of the TMDs is adopted, with a Gaussian dependence on the intrinsic transverse momentum, which turns out to be quite adequate in shape.

The matrix product state (MPS) is utilized to study the ground state properties and quantum phase transitions (QPTs) of the one-dimensional quantum compass model (QCM). The MPS wavefunctions are argued to be very efficient descriptions of QCM ground states, and are numerically determined by imaginary time projections. The ground state energy, correlations, quantum entanglement and its spectrum, local and nonlocal order parameters, etc., are calculated and studied in details. It is revealed that the bipartite and block entanglement entropies, as well as the nearest neighbor correlation functions can be used to detect the second-order QPTs, but not the first-order ones, while fidelity detections can recognize both. The entanglement spectrum is extracted from the MPS wavefunction, and found to be doubly degenerate in disordered phases of QCM, where non-local string order parameters exist. Moreover, with linearized tensor renormalization group method, the specific heat curves are evaluated and their low temperature behaviors are investigated.
Partial-Wave Analysis of the Centrally Produced ?+?- System in pp Reactions at COMPASS

2012-07-05T23:59:59.000Z
COMPASS is a fixed-target experiment at CERN SPS which investigates the structure and spectroscopy of hadrons. During nine weeks in 2008 and 2009, a 190 GeV/c proton beam impinging on a liquid hydrogen target was used in order to study the production of exotic mesons and glueball candidates at central rapidities. As no bias on the production mechanism was introduced by the trigger system, the contribution from diffractive dissociation of the beam proton poses a challenge. We select a centrally produced sample by kinematic cuts and introduce a model to describe the data in terms of partial waves. Preliminary fits are presented, which are consistent with results from previous experiments. Particular attention is paid to the ambiguities in the amplitude analysis of the two-pseudoscalar final state.
Single Spin Asymmetries on a transversely polarised proton target at COMPASS

2008-08-04T23:59:59.000Z
COMPASS is a running fixed-target experiment at the CERN SPS with a rich physics program focused on nucleon spin structure and on hadron spectroscopy. One of the main goals of the spin program is the measurement of the transverse spin effects in semi-inclusive DIS off transversely polarised nucleons. In the years 2002, 2003 and 2004 data have been taken using a 160 $GeV/c$ naturally polarised $\\mu^{+}$ beam and a deuterium target ($^{6}LiD$) transversely polarised respect to the beam direction. In 2007 the run year has been devoted to collect data with a proton ($NH_{3}$) target. The preliminary results for the Collins and Sivers asymmetries, extracted from the 2007 data with transverse target polarisation, are presented here. Results are also compared with existing model predictions.
Review of COMPASS results on transverse-spin effects in SIDIS
Nour Makke
2014-08-13T23:59:59.000Z
The transversity parton distribution remains a poorly known cornerstone in the nucleon spin structure. While the Collins effect in spin asymmetries in Semi-Inclusive DIS (SIDIS) is one crucial tool to address the transversity function, the most promising alternative is the azimuthal asymmetry in SIDIS when a hadron pair is detected in the final state. In this case, the chiral-odd transversity function is coupled to another chiral-odd function, i.e. the hadron-pair interference fragmentation function (IFF). The measurement of azimuthal asymmetries in hadron-pair production on a transversely polarised nucleon target has been performed at COMPASS using a 160 GeV/c muon beam of CERN's M2 beam line. Results from the 2007 and 2010 recent measurements will be presented and compared to model predictions.

A silicon based microfluxgate sensor with a cobalt based amorphous soft magnetic core for electronic compass is presented in this paper. A sputtered Co{sub 85}Nb{sub 12}Zr{sub 3} magnetic core having a rectangular ring shape is combined with microcopper solenoid coils for excitation and pickup, which were wound alternately around the core to increase the number of coil turns. The Co{sub 85}Nb{sub 12}Zr{sub 3} as a core material is adopted for improving properties of the magnetic core and easy integration with micromachining processes to achieve a small size of the sensor. The sputtered Co{sub 85}Nb{sub 12}Zr{sub 3} showed dc effective permeability of {approx}10 000 and an extremely low coercivity of {approx}0.03 Oe with the thickness of 1 {mu}m. The Co{sub 85}Nb{sub 12}Zr{sub 3} as a thin film core with high permeability and low coercivity was easily saturated by a low excitation magnetic field, enhancing the sensitivity and linearity of the microfluxgate sensor. Finally, the sensor showed excellent linearity response over the range of -300 to 300 {mu}T with sensitivity of 60 V/T at the excitation condition of 3.0 V{sub p-p} and 5.0 MHz square wave form. The sensor size excluding pad region is about 0.55x1.4 mm{sup 2}.

The inclusive A_1,p and hadron double-spin asymmetries A_p^pi+, A_p^pi-, A_p^K+, A_p^K- measured at COMPASS (CERN SPS) in deep-inelastic scattering of a polarized muon beam off a polarized NH_3 solid target are presented. The results have been obtained with the full statistics collected in 2007 for the longitudinal target polarization. Proton asymmetries have been combined with the published deuteron ones. An evaluation of the non-singlet spin-dependent structure function g_1^NS(x,Q^2) and its first moment, which confirms the validity of the Bjorken sum-rule, is presented. A LO evaluation of polarized quark densities is also presented. The use of the proton data allows to perform a full flavor separation and to extract individual helicity densities of u, d, anti-u, anti-d and s quarks. All sea quark densities are found to be compatible with zero in the full range of the measurements.
Precision spectroscopy with COMPASS and the observation of a new iso-vector resonance

A separated analysis in bins of $m_{3\\pi}$ and four-momentum transfer $t'$ reveals the interference of resonant and non-resonant particle production and allows their spectral separation. Besides well known resonances we observe a new iso-vector meson $a_1(1420)$ at a mass of 1420 $\\text{MEV\\c}^2$ in the $f_0(980)\\pi$ final state only, the origin of which is unclear. We have also examined the structure of the $0^{++}$ $\\pi\\pi$-isobar in the $J^{PC}=0^{-+}, 1^{++}, 2^{-+}$ three pion waves. This clearly reveals the various $0^{++}$ $\\pi\\pi$-isobar components and its correlation to the decay of light mesons.

Predictions for the spin dependent structure function $g_1$ of the nucleon are presented. We use an unified approach incorporating the LO DGLAP evolution and the resummation of double logarithmic terms $ln^2(x)$. We show, that the singular input parametrisation as $x\\to 0$ can be a substitute of the $ln^2(x)$ resummation. An impact of the `more running' coupling is discussed. We determine the contribution to the Bjorken sum rule solving the evolution equation for the truncated moment of $g_1^{NS}$. A comparison with the re-analysed HERMES and COMPASS data is given.
Threshold-Resummed Cross Section for the Drell-Yan Process in Pion-Nucleon Collisions at COMPASS

2011-04-18T23:59:59.000Z
We present a study of the Drell-Yan process in pion-proton collisions including next-to-leading-logarithmic threshold-resummed contributions. We analyze rapidity-integrated as well as rapidity-differential cross sections in the kinematic regime relevant for the COMPASS fixed target experiment. We find that resummation leads to a significant enhancement of the cross section compared to fixed-order calculations in this regime. Particularly large corrections arise at large forward and backward rapidities of the lepton pair. We also study the scale dependence of the cross section and find it to be substantially reduced by threshold resummation.

This thesis is dedicated to the development and characterisation of a new generation of Micromegas (MICROMEsh GAseous Structure) detectors for the COMPASS experiment at Cern, and the estimation of the diffractive processes’ contribution to the production of pions and kaons, concerning the study of the quark fragmentation functions into hadrons at COMPASS. New Micromegas detectors with a 40 x 40 cm² active area are being developed for the future physics program of the COMPASS experiment starting in 2015. These detectors will have to work in high muon and hadron flux (close to 8 MHz/cm²). In this context, a central area of about 5 cm diameter, crossed by the beam, will be composed of 1280 pixels, and discharge-reduction technologies will be used. Four prototypes with a final read-out geometry, using two different discharge-reduction technologies have been produced at Cern and studied in nominal conditions at COMPASS between 2010 and 2012. Three are hybrid detectors using a GEM (Gas Electron Multiplier) foil...

The observation of the violation of Lam-Tung relation in the $\\pi N$ Drell-Yan process triggered many theoretical speculations. The TMD Boer-Mulders functions characterizing the correlation of transverse momentum and transverse spin for partons in unpolarized hadrons could nicely account for the violation. The COMPASS experiment at CERN will measure the angular distributions of dimuons from the unpolarized Drell-Yan process over a wide kinematic region and study the beam particle dependence. Significant statistics is expected from a successful run in 2015 which will bring further understanding of the origin of the violation of Lam-Tung relation and of the partonic transverse spin structure of the nucleon.

A sample of 35,000 events of the type pi-p --> eta'pi-p_slow (eta' --> eta pi-pi+, eta --> gamma gamma) with -t>0.1 GeV^2/c^2 was selected from COMPASS 2008 data for a partial-wave analysis. We study the broad P_+ structure known from previous experiments at lower energies, in particular its phase motion relative to the D_+-wave near the a_2(1320) mass and relative to a broad D_+-wave structure at higher mass. We also find the a_4(2040). We compare kinematic plots for the eta'pi^- and eta pi- final states.

We present a phenomenological analysis of the $\\cos 2 \\phi$ asymmetry recently measured by the COMPASS and HERMES collaborations in unpolarized semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering. In the kinematical regimes explored by these experiments the asymmetry arises from transverse-spin and intrinsic transverse-momentum effects. We consider the leading-twist contribution, related to the so-called Boer-Mulders transverse-polarization distribution $h_1^{\\perp}(x, k_T^2)$, and the twist-4 Cahn contribution, involving unpolarized transverse-momentum distribution functions. We show that a reasonably good fit of the data is achieved with a Boer-Mulders function consistent with the main theoretical expectations. Our conclusion is that the COMPASS and HERMES measurements represent the first experimental evidence of the Boer-Mulders effect in SIDIS.

We introduce the sandwich veto detector that was built for the 2008 and 2009 hadron runs of the COMPASS experiment at CERN. During these beamtimes it was serving as a veto detector for neutral and charged particles outside the spectrometer acceptance, mostly thought to originate from reactions which excited the target. We also present first mass spectra from $\\pi^-(190\\,\\GeV) p \\to \\pi^- \\Kshort \\Kshort p$ that were measured in the 2008 hadron run.

The soft x-ray diagnostic is suitable for monitoring plasma activity in the tokamak core, e.g., sawtooth instability. Moreover, spatially resolved measurements can provide information about plasma position and shape, which can supplement magnetic measurements. In this contribution, fast algorithms with the potential for a real-time use are tested on the data from the COMPASS tokamak. In addition, the soft x-ray data are compared with data from other diagnostics in order to discuss possible connection between sawtooth instability on one side and the transition to higher confinement mode, edge localized modes and productions of runaway electrons on the other side.

In semi-inclusive DIS of polarized leptons on a transversely polarized target eight azimuthal modulations appear in the cross-section. Within QCD parton model four azimuthal asymmetries can be interpreted at leading order, two of them being the already measured Collins and Sivers asymmetries. The other two leading twist asymmetries, related to different transverse momentum dependent quark distribution functions, and also additional four asymmetries which can be interpreted as twist-three contributions have been measured for the first time at COMPASS, using a 160 GeV/c longitudinally polarized ($P_{beam}\\simeq -0.8$) muon beam and a transversely polarized $^6LiD$ target. We present here the preliminary results from the 2002-2004 data.

By utilizing a nanometer ultrafast electron source in a point projection microscope we demonstrate that images of nanoparticles with spatial resolutions of the order of 100 nanometers can be obtained. The duration of the emission process of the photoemitted electrons used to make images is shown to be of the order of 100 fs using an autocorrelation technique. The compact geometry of this photoelectron point projection microscope does not preclude its use as a simple ultrafast electron microscope, and we use simple analytic models to estimate temporal resolutions that can be expected when using it as a pump-probe ultrafast electron microscope. These models show a significant increase in temporal resolution when comparing to ultrafast electron microscopes based on conventional designs. We also model the microscopes spectroscopic abilities to capture ultrafast phenomena such as the photon induced near field effect.

Breaking Points in Quartic Maps

Dynamical systems, whether continuous or discrete, are used by physicists in order to study non-linear phenomena. In the case of discrete dynamical systems, one of the most used is the quadratic map depending on a parameter. However, some phenomena can depend alternatively of two values of the same parameter. We use the quadratic map $x_{n+1} =1-ax_{n}^{2} $ when the parameter alternates between two values during the iteration process. In this case, the orbit of the alternate system is the sum of the orbits of two quartic maps. The bifurcation diagrams of these maps present breaking points where abruptly change their evolution.

We propose to address the fine tuning problem of inflection point inflation by the addition of extra vacuum energy that is present during inflation but disappears afterwards. We show that in such a case, the required amount of fine tuning is greatly reduced. We suggest that the extra vacuum energy can be associated with an earlier phase transition and provide a simple model, based on extending the SM gauge group to SU(3){sub C} × SU(2){sub L} × U(1){sub Y} × U(1){sub B?L}, where the Higgs field of U(1){sub B?L} is in a false vacuum during inflation. In this case, there is virtually no fine tuning of the soft SUSY breaking parameters of the flat direction which serves as the inflaton. However, the absence of radiative corrections which would spoil the flatness of the inflaton potential requires that the U(1){sub B?L} gauge coupling should be small with g{sub B?L} ? 10{sup ?4}.

We develop a necessary condition for the existence of stable fixed points for the general network Kuramoto model, and use it to show that for the complete network the homogeneous model has no non-zero stable fixed point solution. This result provides further evidence that in the homogeneous case the zero fixed point has an attractor set consisting of the entire space minus a set of measure zero, a conjecture of Verwoerd and Mason (2007).

Wolf Point Substation, Roosevelt County, Montana
Not Available
1991-05-01T23:59:59.000Z
The Western Area Power Administration (Western), an agency of the United States Department of Energy, is proposing to construct the 115-kV Wolf Point Substation near Wolf Point in Roosevelt County, Montana (Figure 1). As part of the construction project, Western's existing Wolf Point Substation would be taken out of service. The existing 115-kV Wolf Point Substation is located approximately 3 miles west of Wolf Point, Montana (Figure 2). The substation was constructed in 1949. The existing Wolf Point Substation serves as a Switching Station'' for the 115-kV transmission in the region. The need for substation improvements is based on operational and reliability issues. For this environmental assessment (EA), the environmental review of the proposed project took into account the removal of the old Wolf Point Substation, rerouting of the five Western lines and four lines from the Cooperatives and Montana-Dakota Utilities Company, and the new road into the proposed substation. Reference to the new proposed Wolf Point Substation in the EA includes these facilities as well as the old substation site. The environmental review looked at the impacts to all resource areas in the Wolf Point area. 7 refs., 6 figs.

We study the zero-point energy of a massless scalar field subject to spheroidal boundary conditions. Using the zeta-function method, the zero-point energy is evaluated for small ellipticity. Axially symmetric vector fields are also considered. The results are interpreted within the context of QCD flux tubes and the MIT bag model.
Traveling water waves with point vortices

We construct small-amplitude solitary traveling gravity-capillary water waves with a finite number of point vortices along a vertical line, on finite depth. This is done using a local bifurcation argument. The properties of the resulting waves are also examined: We find that they depend significantly on the position of the point vortices in the water column.

Interaction between Injection Points during Hydraulic Fracturing
Hals, Kjetil M D
2012-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
We present a model of the hydraulic fracturing of heterogeneous poroelastic media. The formalism is an effective continuum model that captures the coupled dynamics of the fluid pressure and the fractured rock matrix and models both the tensile and shear failure of the rock. As an application of the formalism, we study the geomechanical stress interaction between two injection points during hydraulic fracturing (hydrofracking) and how this interaction influences the fracturing process. For injection points that are separated by less than a critical correlation length, we find that the fracturing process around each point is strongly correlated with the position of the neighboring point. The magnitude of the correlation length depends on the degree of heterogeneity of the rock and is on the order of 30-45 m for rocks with low permeabilities. In the strongly correlated regime, we predict a novel effective fracture-force that attracts the fractures toward the neighboring injection point.

Superconductivity, superfluidity and zero-point oscillations
B. V. Vasiliev
2013-06-29T23:59:59.000Z
Currently it is thought that in order to explain the phenomenon of superconductivity is necessary to understand the mechanism of formation of electron pairs. However, the paired electrons cannot form a superconducting condensate. They perform disorderly zero-point oscillations and there are no attractive forces in their ensemble. To create a unified ensemble of particles, the pairs must order their zero-point fluctuations so that an attraction between the particles appears. For this reason, the ordering of zero-point oscillations in the electron gas is the cause of superconductivity and the parameters characterizing this order determine the properties of superconductors. The model of condensation of zero-point oscillations creates the possibility to obtain estimates for the critical parameters of elementary superconductors, which are also in the satisfactory agreement with measured data. On the another hand, the phenomenon of superfluidity in He-4 and He-3 can be similarly explained due to the ordering of zero-point fluctuations. Thus it is established that the both related phenomena are based on the same physical mechanism.
Attraction towards an inflection point inflation

Many models of high-energy physics possess metastable vacua. It is conceivable that the Universe can get trapped in such a false vacuum, irrespective of its origin and prior history, at an earlier stage during its evolution. The ensuing false vacuum inflation results in a cold and empty universe and has a generic graceful exit problem. We show that an inflection point inflation along the flat directions of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) can resolve this graceful exit problem by inflating the bubble, which nucleates out of a false vacuum. The important point is that the initial condition for an MSSM inflation can be naturally realized, due to an attractor behavior toward the inflection point. We investigate these issues in detail and also present an example where metastable vacua, hence the false vacuum inflation, can happen within the MSSM.
The ROSAT HRI Point Spread Function
Peter Predehl; Almudena Prieto
2001-09-28T23:59:59.000Z
A sample of the brightest point-like sources observed with the ROSAT-HRI were analysed to asses on the intrinsic shape of the ROSAT-HRI Point Spread Function (PSF). Almost all of the HRI observations collected during the ROSAT lifetime are found to be artificially broadened by factors up two ~2 due to residual errors in the ROSAT aspect solution. After correction by departing pointing positions, the width of the core of the PSF is found to be less than 5 arcsec (half energy width, HEW). On the basis of these results, an improved analytical representation of the ROSAT-HRI PSF is provided. However, for most of the new observations the source countrate is too weak to allow reliable recovering pf the ROSAT-HRI resolution.

This investigation examined the use of nano-patterned structures on Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) material to reduce the bulk material melting point (1414 C). It has been found that sharp-tipped and other similar structures have a propensity to move to the lower energy states of spherical structures and as a result exhibit lower melting points than the bulk material. Such a reduction of the melting point would offer a number of interesting opportunities for bonding in microsystems packaging applications. Nano patterning process capabilities were developed to create the required structures for the investigation. One of the technical challenges of the project was understanding and creating the specialized conditions required to observe the melting and reshaping phenomena. Through systematic experimentation and review of the literature these conditions were determined and used to conduct phase change experiments. Melting temperatures as low as 1030 C were observed.
Symmetry and Dirac points in graphene spectrum
Gregory Berkolaiko; Andrew Comech
2015-04-23T23:59:59.000Z
Existence and stability of Dirac points in the dispersion relation of operators periodic with respect to the hexagonal lattice is investigated for different sets of additional symmetries. The following symmetries are considered: rotation by $2\\pi/3$ and inversion, rotation by $2\\pi/3$ and horizontal reflection, inversion or reflection with weakly broken rotation symmetry, and the case where no Dirac points arise: rotation by $2\\pi/3$ and vertical reflection. All proofs are based on symmetry considerations and are elementary in nature. In particular, existence of degeneracies in the spectrum is proved by a transplantation argument (which is deduced from the (co)representation of the relevant symmetry group). The conical shape of the dispersion relation is obtained from its invariance under rotation by $2\\pi/3$. Persistence of conical points when the rotation symmetry is weakly broken is proved using a geometric phase in one case and parity of the eigenfunctions in the other.
Phase-shifting point diffraction interferometer
Medecki, Hector (Berkeley, CA)
1998-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
Disclosed is a point diffraction interferometer for evaluating the quality of a test optic. In operation, the point diffraction interferometer includes a source of radiation, the test optic, a beam divider, a reference wave pinhole located at an image plane downstream from the test optic, and a detector for detecting an interference pattern produced between a reference wave emitted by the pinhole and a test wave emitted from the test optic. The beam divider produces separate reference and test beams which focus at different laterally separated positions on the image plane. The reference wave pinhole is placed at a region of high intensity (e.g., the focal point) for the reference beam. This allows reference wave to be produced at a relatively high intensity. Also, the beam divider may include elements for phase shifting one or both of the reference and test beams.

Point transformations in invariant difference schemes
Francis Valiquette
2005-07-17T23:59:59.000Z
In this paper, we show that when two systems of differential equations admitting a symmetry group are related by a point transformation it is always possible to generate invariant schemes, one for each system, that are also related by the same transformation. This result is used to easily obtain new invariant schemes of some differential equations.

Surveying points in the complex projective plane
Lane Hughston; Simon Salamon
2014-10-21T23:59:59.000Z
We classify SIC-POVMs of rank one in CP^2, or equivalently sets of nine equally-spaced points in CP^2, without the assumption of group covariance. If two points are fixed, the remaining seven must lie on a pinched torus that a standard moment mapping projects to a circle in R^3. We use this approach to prove that any SIC set in CP^2 is isometric to a known solution, given by nine points lying in triples on the equators of the three 2-spheres each defined by the vanishing of one homogeneous coordinate. We set up a system of equations to describe hexagons in CP^2 with the property that any two vertices are related by a cross ratio (transition probability) of 1/4. We then symmetrize the equations, factor out by the known solutions, and compute a Groebner basis to show that no SIC sets remain. We do find new configurations of nine points in which 27 of the 36 pairs of vertices of the configuration are equally spaced.

Multilinear generalized Radon transforms and point configurations
Grafakos, Loukas; Iosevich, Alex; Palsson, Eyvindur
2012-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
We study multilinear generalized Radon transforms using a graph-theoretic paradigm that includes the widely studied linear case. These provide a general mechanism to study Falconer-type problems involving $(k+1)$-point configurations in geometric measure theory, with $k \\ge 2$, including the distribution of simplices, volumes and angles determined by the points of fractal subsets $E \\subset {\\Bbb R}^d$, $d \\ge 2$. If $T_k(E)$ denotes the set of noncongruent $(k+1)$-point configurations determined by $E$, we show that if the Hausdorff dimension of $E$ is greater than $d-\\frac{d-1}{2k}$, then the ${k+1 \\choose 2}$-dimensional Lebesgue measure of $T_k(E)$ is positive. This compliments previous work on the Falconer conjecture (\\cite{Erd05} and the references there), as well as work on finite point configurations \\cite{EHI11,GI10}. We also give applications to Erd\\"os-type problems in discrete geometry and a fractal regular value theorem, providing a multilinear framework for the results in \\cite{EIT11}.

Evolution details of the planar and vertical Lyapunov families around the three collinear libration points in the restricted three-body problem were studied. Researches before were generally restricted to be within the colliding orbits with the primaries and for fixed mass parameters {mu}. In this paper, members after colliding orbits were computed. With increasing {mu}, how these families evolve was studied.

Integral points on hyperbolas: A special case
Konstantine Zelator
2009-07-21T23:59:59.000Z
The subject matter of this work is integral points on conics described by the general equation, ax^2+bxy+cy^2+dx+ey+f=0 (1) where the six coefficients are integers satisfying the conditions, b^2-4ac=k^2, with a and c being nonzero and k a positive integer. It is well known the when b^2-4ac>0, equation (1) describes either a hyperbola on the plane or a pair of two straight lines(the degenerate case). The key integer is the number, I=k^2(d^2-4af)-(2ae-bd)^2. In Section 2, we show via a straightforward algebraic method that equation (1) can be put in the form, g(x,y)h(x,y)=I, where g(x,y) and h(x,y) are linear polynomials in x and y with integer coefficients. Thus, when I is not zero, equation (1) has only finitely many integer solutions (x,y). The process of finding these solutions is outlined in Section 3. In Section 4,we give a detailed numerical example. In Section 5, we offer some observations and remarks. In Section 6, we discuss the case b=d=e=0. In Section 7 we discuss the case a=1=k, and we show that when I=2^n, n>or=2, the above hyperbola has exactly 2(n-1) integral points, all explicitly given. In Section 10, we prove that these points are distinct. In Section 8 we discuss the case I=0, the hyperbola in (1) has either infinitely many integral points: or no integral points. Finally in Section 9, we discuss the special case d=e=f=0.

Quasi-Symmetries of Determinantal Point Processes
Alexander I. Bufetov
2014-09-06T23:59:59.000Z
The main result of this paper is that determinantal point processes on the real line corresponding to projection operators with integrable kernels are quasi-invariant, in the continuous case, under the group of diffeomorphisms with compact support (Theorem 1.5); in the discrete case, under the group of all finite permutations of the phase space (Theorem 1.7). The Radon-Nikodym derivative is computed explicitly and is given by a regularized multiplicative functional. Theorem 1.5 applies, in particular, to the sine-process and the Bessel point process; Theorem 1.7 to the discrete sine process and the Gamma kernel process. The paper answers a question of Grigori Olshanski.
Perforation of domain wall by point mass
D. V. Gal'tsov; E. Yu. Melkumova; P. A. Spirin
2013-12-30T23:59:59.000Z
We investigate collision of a point particle and an infinitely thin planar domain wall interacting gravitationally within the linearized gravity in Minkowski space-time of arbitrary dimension. In this setting we are able to describe analytically the perforation of the wall by an impinging particle, showing that it is accompanied by excitation of the spherical shock branon wave propagating outwards with the speed of light. Formally, the shock wave is a free solution of the branon wave equation which has to be added to ensure the validity of the retarded solution at the perforation point. Physically, the domain wall gets excited due to the shake caused by an instantaneous change of sign of the repulsive gravitational force. This effect is shown to hold, in particular, in four space-time dimensions, being applicable to the problem of cosmological domain walls.

Dynamic trapping near a quantum critical point
Michael Kolodrubetz; Emanuel Katz; Anatoli Polkovnikov
2015-03-02T23:59:59.000Z
The study of dynamics in closed quantum systems has recently been revitalized by the emergence of experimental systems that are well-isolated from their environment. In this paper, we consider the closed-system dynamics of an archetypal model: spins near a second order quantum critical point, which are traditionally described by the Kibble-Zurek mechanism. Imbuing the driving field with Newtonian dynamics, we find that the full closed system exhibits a robust new phenomenon -- dynamic critical trapping -- in which the system is self-trapped near the critical point due to efficient absorption of field kinetic energy by heating the quantum spins. We quantify limits in which this phenomenon can be observed and generalize these results by developing a Kibble-Zurek scaling theory that incorporates the dynamic field. Our findings can potentially be interesting in the context of early universe physics, where the role of the driving field is played by the inflaton or a modulus.

A high speed microseismic event detector constructed in accordance with the present invention uses a point derivative comb to quickly and accurately detect microseismic events. Compressional and shear waves impinging upon microseismic receiver stations disposed to collect waves are converted into digital data and analyzed using a point derivative comb including assurance of quiet periods prior to declaration of microseismic events. If a sufficient number of quiet periods have passed, the square of a two point derivative of the incoming digital signal is compared to a trip level threshold exceeding the determined noise level to declare a valid trial event. The squaring of the derivative emphasizes the differences between noise and signal, and the valid event is preferably declared when the trip threshold has been exceeded over a temporal comb width to realize a comb over a given time period. Once a trial event has been declared, the event is verified through a spatial comb, which applies the temporal event comb to additional stations. The detector according to the present invention quickly and accurately detects initial compressional waves indicative of a microseismic event which typically exceed the ambient cultural noise level by a small amount, and distinguishes the waves from subsequent larger amplitude shear waves.

Point-to-point correlation functions of hadron currents in the QCD vacuum are calculated on a lattice and analyzed using dispersion relations, providing physical information down to small spatial separations. Qualitative agreement with phenomenological results is obtained in channels for which experimental data are available, and these correlation functions are shown to be useful in exploring approximations based on sum rules and interacting instantons.
Critical Points of the Electric Field from a Collection of Point Charges
Max, N; Weinkauf, T
2007-02-16T23:59:59.000Z
The electric field around a molecule is generated by the charge distribution of its constituents: positively charged atomic nuclei, which are well approximated by point charges, and negatively charged electrons, whose probability density distribution can be computed from quantum mechanics. For the purposes of molecular mechanics or dynamics, the charge distribution is often approximated by a collection of point charges, with either a single partial charge at each atomic nucleus position, representing both the nucleus and the electrons near it, or as several different point charges per atom. The critical points in the electric field are useful in visualizing its geometrical and topological structure, and can help in understanding the forces and motion it induces on a charged ion or neutral dipole. Most visualization tools for vector fields use only samples of the field on the vertices of a regular grid, and some sort of interpolation, for example, trilinear, on the grid cells. There is less risk of missing or misinterpreting topological features if they can be derived directly from the analytic formula for the field, rather than from its samples. This work presents a method which is guaranteed to find all the critical points of the electric field from a finite set of point charges. To visualize the field topology, we have modified the saddle connector method to use the analytic formula for the field.

Practical Point-to-Point Free-Space Quantum Key Distribution over 1/2 KM
Buttler, W.T.; Hughes, R.J.; Kwiat, P.G.; Lamoreaux, S.K.; Morgan, G.L.; Peterson, C.G.
1999-02-01T23:59:59.000Z
We have demonstrated point-to-point single-photon quantum key distribution (QKD) over a free-space optical path of {approximately}475 m under daylight conditions. This represents an increase of >1,000 times farther than any reported point-to-point demonstration, and >6 times farther than the previous folded path daylight demonstration. We expect to extend the daylight range to 2 km or more within the next few months. A brief description of the system is given here. The QKD transmitter, a.k.a. ''Alice'' (Fig. 1), consists of three thermoelectrically cooled diode lasers, a single interference filter (IF), two optical attenuators, two linear polarizers, two non-polarization beam-splitters (BSs), and a 27x beam expander. The two data-lasers' (dim-lasers') wavelengths are temperature controlled and constrained by the IF to {approximately}773 {+-} 0.5 nm, while the transmitted wavelength of the bright-laser (timing-laser) is {approximately}768 nm; the data-lasers are configured to emit a weak pulse of approximately 1 ns duration. The transmitter incorporates no active polarization switching--a first in QKD.
Exploiting Symmetry in Integer Convex Optimization using Core Points
Herr, Katrin; Schürmann, Achill
2012-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
We consider convex programming problems with integrality constraints that are invariant under a linear symmetry group. We define a core point of such a symmetry group as an integral point for which the convex hull of its orbit does not contain integral points other than the orbit points themselves. These core points allow us to decompose symmetric integer convex programming problems. Especially for symmetric integer linear programs we describe two algorithms based on this decomposition. Using a characterization of core points for direct products of symmetric groups, we show that prototype implementations can compete with state-of-the art commercial solvers and solve an open MIPLIB problem.

Dual-domain point diffraction interferometer
Naulleau, Patrick P. (5239 Miles Ave., Apt. A, Oakland, CA 94618); Goldberg, Kenneth Alan (1195 Keeler Ave., Berkeley, CA 94708)
2000-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
A hybrid spatial/temporal-domain point diffraction interferometer (referred to as the dual-domain PS/PDI) that is capable of suppressing the scattered-reference-light noise that hinders the conventional PS/PDI is provided. The dual-domain PS/PDI combines the separate noise-suppression capabilities of the widely-used phase-shifting and Fourier-transform fringe pattern analysis methods. The dual-domain PS/PDI relies on both a more restrictive implementation of the image plane PS/PDI mask and a new analysis method to be applied to the interferograms generated and recorded by the modified PS/PDI. The more restrictive PS/PDI mask guarantees the elimination of spatial-frequency crosstalk between the signal and the scattered-light noise arising from scattered-reference-light interfering with the test beam. The new dual-domain analysis method is then used to eliminate scattered-light noise arising from both the scattered-reference-light interfering with the test beam and the scattered-reference-light interfering with the "true" pinhole-diffracted reference light. The dual-domain analysis method has also been demonstrated to provide performance enhancement when using the non-optimized standard PS/PDI design. The dual-domain PS/PDI is essentially a three-tiered filtering system composed of lowpass spatial-filtering the test-beam electric field using the more restrictive PS/PDI mask, bandpass spatial-filtering the individual interferogram irradiance frames making up the phase-shifting series, and bandpass temporal-filtering the phase-shifting series as a whole.
Using Rose and Compass for Authentication
White, G
2009-07-09T23:59:59.000Z
Many recent non-proliferation software projects include a software authentication component. In this context, 'authentication' is defined as determining that a software package performs only its intended purpose and performs that purpose correctly and reliably over many years. In addition to visual inspection by knowledgeable computer scientists, automated tools are needed to highlight suspicious code constructs both to aid the visual inspection and to guide program development. While many commercial tools are available for portions of the authentication task, they are proprietary, and have limited extensibility. An open-source, extensible tool can be customized to the unique needs of each project. ROSE is an LLNL-developed robust source-to-source analysis and optimization infrastructure currently addressing large, million-line DOE applications in C, C++, and FORTRAN. It continues to be extended to support the automated analysis of binaries (x86, ARM, and PowerPC). We continue to extend ROSE to address a number of security specific requirements and apply it to software authentication for non-proliferation projects. We will give an update on the status of our work.
Quantum dynamics of the avian compass
Zachary B. Walters
2014-09-19T23:59:59.000Z
The ability of migratory birds to orient relative to the Earth's magnetic field is believed to involve a coherent superposition of two spin states of a radical electron pair. However, the mechanism by which this coherence can be maintained in the face of strong interactions with the cellular environment has remained unclear. This Letter addresses the problem of decoherence between two electron spins due to hyperfine interaction with a bath of spin 1/2 nuclei. Dynamics of the radical pair density matrix are derived and shown to yield a simple mechanism for sensing magnetic field orientation. Rates of dephasing and decoherence are calculated ab initio and found to yield millisecond coherence times, consistent with behavioral experiments.

Jacobi fields, conjugate points and cut points on timelike geodesics in special spacetimes
Leszek M. Soko?owski; Zdzis?aw A. Golda
2015-07-09T23:59:59.000Z
Several physical problems such as the `twin paradox' in curved spacetimes have purely geometrical nature and may be reduced to studying properties of bundles of timelike geodesics. The paper is a general introduction to systematic investigations of the geodesic structure of physically relevant spacetimes. The investigations are focussed on the search of locally and globally maximal timelike geodesics. The method of dealing with the local problem is in a sense algorithmic and is based on the geodesic deviation equation. Yet the search for globally maximal geodesics is non-algorithmic and cannot be treated analytically by solving a differential equation. Here one must apply a mixture of methods: spacetime symmetries (we have effectively employed the spherical symmetry), the use of the comoving coordinates adapted to the given congruence of timelike geodesics and the conjugate points on these geodesics. All these methods have been effectively applied in both the local and global problems in a number of simple and important spacetimes and their outcomes have already been published in three papers. Our approach shows that even in Schwarzschild spacetime (as well as in other static spherically symetric ones) one can find a new unexpected geometrical feature: instead of one there are three different infinite sets of conjugate points on each stable circular timelike geodesic curve. Due to problems with solving differential equations we are dealing solely with radial and circular geodesics.
Analysis of Strategic Petroleum Reserve bubble point pressure data
Lott, S.E.
1996-05-01T23:59:59.000Z
Mathematical models are presented to predict the bubble pressure for 481 cavern oil samples withdrawn from the Bryan Mound, West Hackberry, Big Hill, and Bayou Choctaw Strategic Petroleum Reserve sites. The predicted bubble point pressure is compared to experimentally measured bubble point pressure to resolve potential sources of error introduced to the experimental analysis. In order to gain a higher level of confidence in the measurement of the bubble point pressure, a stochastic analysis of the data is recommended in the future.

Existence and topological stability of Fermi points in multilayered graphene
Juan L. Mañes; Francisco Guinea; María A. H. Vozmediano
2007-04-23T23:59:59.000Z
We study the existence and topological stability of Fermi points in a graphene layer and stacks with many layers. We show that the discrete symmetries (spacetime inversion) stabilize the Fermi points in monolayer, bilayer and multilayer graphene with orthorhombic stacking. The bands near $k=0$ and $\\epsilon=0$ in multilayers with the Bernal stacking depend on the parity of the number of layers, and Fermi points are unstable when the number of layers is odd. The low energy changes in the electronic structure induced by commensurate perturbations which mix the two Dirac points are also investigated.

This survey discusses recent developments in the context of spherical designs and minimal energy point configurations on spheres. The recent solution of the long standing problem of the existence of spherical $t$-designs on $\\mathbb{S}^d$ with $\\mathcal{O}(t^d)$ number of points by A. Bondarenko, D. Radchenko, and M. Viazovska attracted new interest to this subject. Secondly, D. P. Hardin and E. B. Saff proved that point sets minimising the discrete Riesz energy on $\\mathbb{S}^d$ in the hypersingular case are asymptotically uniformly distributed. Both results are of great relevance to the problem of describing the quality of point distributions on $\\mathbb{S}^d$, as well as finding point sets, which exhibit good distribution behaviour with respect to various quality measures.

The Dirac cone underlies many unique electronic properties of graphene and topological insulators, and its band structure--two conical bands touching at a single point--has also been realized for photons in waveguide arrays, atoms in optical lattices, and through accidental degeneracy. Deformations of the Dirac cone often reveal intriguing properties; an example is the quantum Hall effect, where a constant magnetic field breaks the Dirac cone into isolated Landau levels. A seemingly unrelated phenomenon is the exceptional point, also known as the parity-time symmetry breaking point, where two resonances coincide in both their positions and widths. Exceptional points lead to counter-intuitive phenomena such as loss-induced transparency, unidirectional transmission or reflection, and lasers with reversed pump dependence or single-mode operation. These two fields of research are in fact connected: here we discover the ability of a Dirac cone to evolve into a ring of exceptional points, which we call an "exceptio...

Unsteady Reversed Stagnation-Point Flow over a Flat Plate
Sin, Vai Kuong
2013-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
This paper investigates the nature of the development of two-dimensional laminar flow of an incompressible fluid at the reversed stagnation-point. ". In this study, we revisit the problem of reversed stagnation-point flow over a flat plate. Proudman and Johnson (1962) first studied the flow and obtained an asymptotic solution by neglecting the viscous terms. This is no true in neglecting the viscous terms within the total flow field. In particular it is pointed out that for a plate impulsively accelerated from rest to a constant velocity V0 that a similarity solution to the self-similar ODE is obtained which is noteworthy completely analytical.

2011 Radioactive Materials Usage Survey for Unmonitored Point Sources
Sturgeon, Richard W. [Los Alamos National Laboratory
2012-06-27T23:59:59.000Z
This report provides the results of the 2011 Radioactive Materials Usage Survey for Unmonitored Point Sources (RMUS), which was updated by the Environmental Protection (ENV) Division's Environmental Stewardship (ES) at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). ES classifies LANL emission sources into one of four Tiers, based on the potential effective dose equivalent (PEDE) calculated for each point source. Detailed descriptions of these tiers are provided in Section 3. The usage survey is conducted annually; in odd-numbered years the survey addresses all monitored and unmonitored point sources and in even-numbered years it addresses all Tier III and various selected other sources. This graded approach was designed to ensure that the appropriate emphasis is placed on point sources that have higher potential emissions to the environment. For calendar year (CY) 2011, ES has divided the usage survey into two distinct reports, one covering the monitored point sources (to be completed later this year) and this report covering all unmonitored point sources. This usage survey includes the following release points: (1) all unmonitored sources identified in the 2010 usage survey, (2) any new release points identified through the new project review (NPR) process, and (3) other release points as designated by the Rad-NESHAP Team Leader. Data for all unmonitored point sources at LANL is stored in the survey files at ES. LANL uses this survey data to help demonstrate compliance with Clean Air Act radioactive air emissions regulations (40 CFR 61, Subpart H). The remainder of this introduction provides a brief description of the information contained in each section. Section 2 of this report describes the methods that were employed for gathering usage survey data and for calculating usage, emissions, and dose for these point sources. It also references the appropriate ES procedures for further information. Section 3 describes the RMUS and explains how the survey results are organized. The RMUS Interview Form with the attached RMUS Process Form(s) provides the radioactive materials survey data by technical area (TA) and building number. The survey data for each release point includes information such as: exhaust stack identification number, room number, radioactive material source type (i.e., potential source or future potential source of air emissions), radionuclide, usage (in curies) and usage basis, physical state (gas, liquid, particulate, solid, or custom), release fraction (from Appendix D to 40 CFR 61, Subpart H), and process descriptions. In addition, the interview form also calculates emissions (in curies), lists mrem/Ci factors, calculates PEDEs, and states the location of the critical receptor for that release point. [The critical receptor is the maximum exposed off-site member of the public, specific to each individual facility.] Each of these data fields is described in this section. The Tier classification of release points, which was first introduced with the 1999 usage survey, is also described in detail in this section. Section 4 includes a brief discussion of the dose estimate methodology, and includes a discussion of several release points of particular interest in the CY 2011 usage survey report. It also includes a table of the calculated PEDEs for each release point at its critical receptor. Section 5 describes ES's approach to Quality Assurance (QA) for the usage survey. Satisfactory completion of the survey requires that team members responsible for Rad-NESHAP (National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants) compliance accurately collect and process several types of information, including radioactive materials usage data, process information, and supporting information. They must also perform and document the QA reviews outlined in Section 5.2.6 (Process Verification and Peer Review) of ES-RN, 'Quality Assurance Project Plan for the Rad-NESHAP Compliance Project' to verify that all information is complete and correct.

Fast Change Point Detection for Electricity Market Analysis
UC Berkeley; Gu, William; Choi, Jaesik; Gu, Ming; Simon, Horst; Wu, Kesheng
2013-08-25T23:59:59.000Z
Electricity is a vital part of our daily life; therefore it is important to avoid irregularities such as the California Electricity Crisis of 2000 and 2001. In this work, we seek to predict anomalies using advanced machine learning algorithms. These algorithms are effective, but computationally expensive, especially if we plan to apply them on hourly electricity market data covering a number of years. To address this challenge, we significantly accelerate the computation of the Gaussian Process (GP) for time series data. In the context of a Change Point Detection (CPD) algorithm, we reduce its computational complexity from O($n^{5}$) to O($n^{2}$). Our efficient algorithm makes it possible to compute the Change Points using the hourly price data from the California Electricity Crisis. By comparing the detected Change Points with known events, we show that the Change Point Detection algorithm is indeed effective in detecting signals preceding major events.

Stray thermal influences in zinc fixed-point cells
Rudtsch, S.; Aulich, A.; Monte, C. [Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Abbestr. 2-12, 10587 Berlin (Germany)] [Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Abbestr. 2-12, 10587 Berlin (Germany)

The influence of thermal effects is a major uncertainty contribution to the calibration of Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometers (SPRTs) in fixed-point cells. Axial heat losses strongly depend on the fixed-point temperature, constructional details of cells and SPRTs and the resulting heat transfer between cell, thermometer, furnace and environment. At the zinc point contributions by heat conduction and thermal radiation must be considered. Although the measurement of temperature gradients in the re-entrant well of a fixed-point cell provides very important information about the influence of axial heat losses, further investigations are required for a reliable estimate of the resulting uncertainty contribution. It is shown that specific modifications of a zinc fixed-point cell, following generally accepted principles, may result in systematic deviations of the measured fixed-point temperatures larger than typically stated in the uncertainty budget of National Metrology Institutes (NMIs). The underlying heat transport processes are investigated and the consequences for the construction of zinc cells are discussed.
Complex saddle points in QCD at finite temperature and density
Hiromichi Nishimura; Michael C. Ogilvie; Kamal Pangeni
2014-08-12T23:59:59.000Z
The sign problem in QCD at finite temperature and density leads naturally to the consideration of complex saddle points of the action or effective action. The global symmetry $\\mathcal{CK}$ of the finite-density action, where $\\mathcal{C}$ is charge conjugation and $\\mathcal{K}$ is complex conjugation, constrains the eigenvalues of the Polyakov loop operator $P$ at a saddle point in such a way that the action is real at a saddle point, and net color charge is zero. The values of $Tr_{F}P$ and $Tr_{F}P^{\\dagger}$ at the saddle point, are real but not identical, indicating the different free energy cost associated with inserting a heavy quark versus an antiquark into the system. At such complex saddle points, the mass matrix associated with Polyakov loops may have complex eigenvalues, reflecting oscillatory behavior in color-charge densities. We illustrate these properties with a simple model which includes the one-loop contribution of gluons and massless quarks moving in a constant Polyakov loop background. Confinement-deconfinement effects are modeled phenomenologically via an added potential term depending on the Polyakov loop eigenvalues. For sufficiently large $T$ and $\\mu$, the results obtained reduce to those of perturbation theory at the complex saddle point. These results may be experimentally relevant for the CBM experiment at FAIR.
Cove Point: A step back into the LNG business
Katz, M.G.
1995-12-31T23:59:59.000Z
In 1978, ships began unloading LNG from Algeria at Cove Point`s berthing facilities 1.25 miles offshore. An underwater pipeline transported the LNG to land, where it was stored in the terminal`s four 140-foot-high cryogenic storage tanks. When the LNG was needed, the terminals 10 vaporizers converted it back to gas for send out via an 87-mile-long, 36-inch-diameter pipeline linking the terminal with interstate pipelines of CNG Transmission Corp. and Columbia Gas Transmission Corp. in Loudon County, Va. But Cove Point handled only about 80 shiploads of LNG before shutting down in December 1980, after a dispute about gas prices between US customers and Algeria. The plant sat dormant until the natural gas industry`s deregulation under Order 636. Deregulation resulted in major pipelines abandoning their sales service, and gas distributors and large customers found it was now their obligation to ensure that they had adequate gas supplies during winter peak-demand periods. Enter Cove Point`s peaking capabilities. They had to add the liquefaction unit and recommission other parts of the plant, but the timing was right. Cove Point`s new liquefaction unit is liquefying about 15 million cubic feet (MMcf) of LNG per day of domestic gas. It chills the gas to {minus}260 degrees Fahrenheit to turn it into a liquid for injection and storage in one of the facility`s double-walled insulated tanks. During its initial injection season, which ends Dec. 15, Cove Point is expected to produce enough LNG to almost fill one tank, which can store up to 1.25 billion cubic feet (Bcf). Were the gas not intended for peak-shaving purposes, it would be enough to supply 14,000 homes for a year. As it is, most of the gas will be returned as pipeline gas, during next January and February`s expected cold snaps, to the utilities and users who supplied it. Cove Point`s initial daily sendout capacity is about 400 MMcf.

Methods for point source analysis in high energy neutrino telescopes
Jim Braun; Jon Dumm; Francesco De Palma; Chad Finley; Albrecht Karle; Teresa Montaruli
2008-01-10T23:59:59.000Z
Neutrino telescopes are moving steadily toward the goal of detecting astrophysical neutrinos from the most powerful galactic and extragalactic sources. Here we describe analysis methods to search for high energy point-like neutrino sources using detectors deep in the ice or sea. We simulate an ideal cubic kilometer detector based on real world performance of existing detectors such as AMANDA, IceCube, and ANTARES. An unbinned likelihood ratio method is applied, making use of the point spread function and energy distribution of simulated neutrino signal events to separate them from the background of atmospheric neutrinos produced by cosmic ray showers. The unbinned point source analyses are shown to perform better than binned searches and, depending on the source spectral index, the use of energy information is shown to improve discovery potential by almost a factor of two.

We present the results of the physical point simulation in 2+1 flavor lattice QCD with the nonperturbatively $O(a)$-improved Wilson quark action and the Iwasaki gauge action at $\\beta=1.9$ on a $32^3 \\times 64$ lattice. The physical quark masses together with the lattice spacing is determined with $m_\\pi$, $m_K$ and $m_\\Omega$ as physical inputs. There are two key algorithmic ingredients to make possible the direct simulation at the physical point: One is the mass-preconditioned domain-decomposed HMC algorithm to reduce the computational cost. The other is the reweighting technique to adjust the hopping parameters exactly to the physical point. The physics results include the hadron spectrum, the quark masses and the pseudoscalar meson decay constants. The renormalization factors are nonperturbatively evaluated with the Schr{\\"o}dinger functional method. The results are compared with the previous ones obtained by the chiral extrapolation method.
Energy dissipation in magnetic null points at kinetic scales
Olshevsky, Vyacheslav; Eriksson, Elin; Markidis, Stefano; Lapenta, Giovanni
2015-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
We use kinetic particle-in-cell and magnetohydrodynamic simulations supported by an observational dataset to investigate magnetic reconnection in clusters of null points in space plasma. The magnetic configuration under investigation is driven by fast adiabatic flux rope compression that dissipates almost half of the initial magnetic field energy. In this phase powerful currents are excited producing secondary instabilities, and the system is brought into a state of `intermittent turbulence' within a few ion gyro-periods. Reconnection events are distributed all over the simulation domain and energy dissipation is rather volume-filling. Numerous spiral null points interconnected via their spines form null lines embedded into magnetic flux ropes; null point pairs demonstrate the signatures of torsional spine reconnection. However, energy dissipation mainly happens in the shear layers formed by adjacent flux ropes with oppositely directed currents. In these regions radial null pairs are spontaneously emerging an...
Engineering to Control Noise, Loading, and Optimal Operating Points
Mitchell R. Swartz
2000-11-12T23:59:59.000Z
Successful engineering of low-energy nuclear systems requires control of noise, loading, and optimum operating point (OOP) manifolds. The latter result from the biphasic system response of low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR)/cold fusion systems, and their ash production rate, to input electrical power. Knowledge of the optimal operating point manifold can improve the reproducibility and efficacy of these systems in several ways. Improved control of noise, loading, and peak production rates is available through the study, and use, of OOP manifolds. Engineering of systems toward the OOP-manifold drive-point peak may, with inclusion of geometric factors, permit more accurate uniform determinations of the calibrated activity of these materials/systems.
Thermal conductivity at a disordered quantum critical point
Hartnoll, Sean A; Santos, Jorge E
2015-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
Strongly disordered and strongly interacting quantum critical points are difficult to access with conventional field theoretic methods. They are, however, both experimentally important and theoretically interesting. In particular, they are expected to realize universal incoherent transport. Such disordered quantum critical theories have recently been constructed holographically by deforming a CFT by marginally relevant disorder. In this paper we find additional disordered fixed points via relevant disordered deformations of a holographic CFT. Using recently developed methods in holographic transport, we characterize the thermal conductivity in both sets of theories in 1+1 dimensions. The thermal conductivity is found to tend to a constant at low temperatures in one class of fixed points, and to scale as $T^{0.3}$ in the other. Furthermore, in all cases the thermal conductivity exhibits discrete scale invariance, with logarithmic in temperature oscillations superimposed on the low temperature scaling behavior....

New algorithms for adaptive optics point-spread function reconstruction
Eric Gendron; Yann Clénet; Thierry Fusco; Gérard Rousset
2006-06-28T23:59:59.000Z
Context. The knowledge of the point-spread function compensated by adaptive optics is of prime importance in several image restoration techniques such as deconvolution and astrometric/photometric algorithms. Wavefront-related data from the adaptive optics real-time computer can be used to accurately estimate the point-spread function in adaptive optics observations. The only point-spread function reconstruction algorithm implemented on astronomical adaptive optics system makes use of particular functions, named $U\\_{ij}$. These $U\\_{ij}$ functions are derived from the mirror modes, and their number is proportional to the square number of these mirror modes. Aims. We present here two new algorithms for point-spread function reconstruction that aim at suppressing the use of these $U\\_{ij}$ functions to avoid the storage of a large amount of data and to shorten the computation time of this PSF reconstruction. Methods. Both algorithms take advantage of the eigen decomposition of the residual parallel phase covariance matrix. In the first algorithm, the use of a basis in which the latter matrix is diagonal reduces the number of $U\\_{ij}$ functions to the number of mirror modes. In the second algorithm, this eigen decomposition is used to compute phase screens that follow the same statistics as the residual parallel phase covariance matrix, and thus suppress the need for these $U\\_{ij}$ functions. Results. Our algorithms dramatically reduce the number of $U\\_{ij}$ functions to be computed for the point-spread function reconstruction. Adaptive optics simulations show the good accuracy of both algorithms to reconstruct the point-spread function.
Chiral-Scale Perturbation Theory About an Infrared Fixed Point

q-Deformed Boson Oscillators and Zero Point Energy
P. Narayana Swamy
1999-09-22T23:59:59.000Z
Just as for the ordinary quantum harmonic oscillators, we expect the zero-point energy to play a crucial role in the correct high temperature behavior. We accordingly reformulate the theory of the statistical distribution function for the q-deformed boson oscillators and develop an approximate theory incorporating the zero-point energy. We are then able to demonstrate that for small deformations, the theory reproduces the correct limits both for very high temperatures and for very low temperatures. The deformed theory thus reduces to the undeformed theory in these extreme cases.

An order theoretic approach in fixed point theory
Yaé Ulrich Gaba
2014-11-07T23:59:59.000Z
In the present article, we show the existence of a coupled fixed point for an order preserving mapping in a preordered left K-complete quasi-pseudometric space using a preorder induced by an appropriate function. We also define the concept of left-weakly related mappings on a preordered space and discuss common coupled fixed points for two and three left-weakly related mappings in the same space. Similar results are given for right-weakly related mappings, the dual notion of left-weakly related mappings.

Quantum Chaos for point scatterers on flat tori
Henrik Ueberschaer
2013-04-23T23:59:59.000Z
This survey article deals with a delta potential - also known as a point scatterer - on flat 2D and 3D tori. We introduce the main conjectures regarding the spectral and wave function statistics of this model in the so- called weak and strong coupling regimes. We report on recent progress as well as a number of open problems in this field.

The apparatus includes at least one acoustic-wave device such as SAW, QCM, FPM, TSM or APM type devices in contact with the petroleum-based composition for sensing or detecting the surface temperature at which deposition occurs and/or rate of deposition as a function of temperature by sensing an accompanying change in frequency, phase shift, damping voltage or damping current of an electrical oscillator to a known calibrated condition. The acoustic wave device is actively cooled to monitor the deposition of constituents such as paraffins by determining the point at which solids from the liquid composition begin to form on the acoustic wave device. The acoustic wave device can be heated to melt or boil off the deposits to reset the monitor and the process can be repeated.

Damping the zero-point energy of a harmonic oscillator
T. G Philbin; S. A. R. Horsley
2013-07-31T23:59:59.000Z
The physics of quantum electromagnetism in an absorbing medium is that of a field of damped harmonic oscillators. Yet until recently the damped harmonic oscillator was not treated with the same kind of formalism used to describe quantum electrodynamics in a arbitrary medium. Here we use the techniques of macroscopic QED, based on the Huttner--Barnett reservoir, to describe the quantum mechanics of a damped oscillator. We calculate the thermal and zero-point energy of the oscillator for a range of damping values from zero to infinity. While both the thermal and zero-point energies decrease with damping, the energy stored in the oscillator at fixed temperature increases with damping, an effect that may be experimentally observable. As the results follow from canonical quantization, the uncertainty principle is valid for all damping levels.

Shaft Excavation in Frozen Ground at Point 5
Osborne, J
2000-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
Construction work on the 112 MCHF civil engineering contract started at Point 5 in August 1998. The new surface buildings and underground structures are necessary to accommodate the CMS detector for the LHC Project. The principal underground works consist of two new shafts, two parallel caverns separated by a supporting pillar, and a number of small connection tunnels and service galleries. The two shafts are to be sunk through approximately 50 m of water-bearing moraine to the underlying molasse rock. From a number of possible construction methods, ground freezing of the moraine was considered to be most appropriate. The ground freezing is used to control the groundwater and to support temporarily the moraine during excavation and lining of the shafts. The aim of this paper is to present the ground-freezing technique and to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the system in the light of its first few months of running on the Point 5 site.

Microscopic return point memory in Co/Pd multilayer films

2009-10-01T23:59:59.000Z
We report soft x-ray speckle metrology measurements of microscopic return point and complementary point memory in Co/Pd magnetic films having perpendicular anisotropy. We observe that the domains assemble into a common labyrinth phase with a period that varies by nearly a factor of two between initial reversal and fields near saturation. Unlike previous studies of similar systems, the ability of the film to reproduce its domain structure after magnetic cycling through saturation varies from loop to loop, from position to position on the sample, and with the part of the speckle pattern used in the metrology measurements. We report the distribution of memory as a function of field and discuss these results in terms of the reversal process.
Process for structural geologic analysis of topography and point data
Eliason, Jay R. (Richland, WA); Eliason, Valerie L. C. (Richland, WA)
1987-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
A quantitative method of geologic structural analysis of digital terrain data is described for implementation on a computer. Assuming selected valley segments are controlled by the underlying geologic structure, topographic lows in the terrain data, defining valley bottoms, are detected, filtered and accumulated into a series line segments defining contiguous valleys. The line segments are then vectorized to produce vector segments, defining valley segments, which may be indicative of the underlying geologic structure. Coplanar analysis is performed on vector segment pairs to determine which vectors produce planes which represent underlying geologic structure. Point data such as fracture phenomena which can be related to fracture planes in 3-dimensional space can be analyzed to define common plane orientation and locations. The vectors, points, and planes are displayed in various formats for interpretation.
Average Interpolating Wavelets on Point Clouds and Graphs
Rustamov, Raif M
2011-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
We introduce a new wavelet transform suitable for analyzing functions on point clouds and graphs. Our construction is based on a generalization of the average interpolating refinement scheme of Donoho. The most important ingredient of the original scheme that needs to be altered is the choice of the interpolant. Here, we define the interpolant as the minimizer of a smoothness functional, namely a generalization of the Laplacian energy, subject to the averaging constraints. In the continuous setting, we derive a formula for the optimal solution in terms of the poly-harmonic Green's function. The form of this solution is used to motivate our construction in the setting of graphs and point clouds. We highlight the empirical convergence of our refinement scheme and the potential applications of the resulting wavelet transform through experiments on a number of data stets.

Traceable Co-C eutectic points for thermocouple calibration
Jahan, F.; Ballico, M. J. [National Measurement Institute, Lindfield, NSW 2070 (Australia)] [National Measurement Institute, Lindfield, NSW 2070 (Australia)
2013-09-11T23:59:59.000Z
National Measurement Institute of Australia (NMIA) has developed a miniature crucible design suitable for measurement by both thermocouples and radiation thermometry, and has established an ensemble of five Co-C eutectic-point cells based on this design. The cells in this ensemble have been individually calibrated using both ITS-90 radiation thermometry and thermocouples calibrated on the ITS-90 by the NMIA mini-coil methodology. The assigned ITS-90 temperatures obtained using these different techniques are both repeatable and consistent, despite the use of different furnaces and measurement conditions. The results demonstrate that, if individually calibrated, such cells can be practically used as part of a national traceability scheme for thermocouple calibration, providing a useful intermediate calibration point between Cu and Pd.
Eulerian BAO Reconstructions and N-Point Statistics
Schmittfull, Marcel; Beutler, Florian; Sherwin, Blake; Chu, Man Yat
2015-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
As galaxy surveys begin to measure the imprint of baryonic acoustic oscillations (BAO) on large-scale structure at the sub-percent level, reconstruction techniques that reduce the contamination from nonlinear clustering become increasingly important. Inverting the nonlinear continuity equation, we propose an Eulerian growth-shift reconstruction algorithm that does not require the displacement of any objects, which is needed for the standard Lagrangian BAO reconstruction algorithm. In our simulations, the algorithm yields 95% of the BAO signal-to-noise obtained from standard reconstruction. The reconstructed power spectrum is obtained by adding specific simple 3- and 4-point statistics to the pre-reconstruction power spectrum, making it very transparent how additional BAO information from higher-point statistics is included in the power spectrum through the reconstruction process. Analytical models of the reconstructed density for the two algorithms agree at second order. Based on similar modeling efforts, we ...
Point Defect Dynamics in Two-Dimensional Colloidal Crystals
A. Libal; C. Reichhardt; C. J. Olson Reichhardt
2006-12-16T23:59:59.000Z
We study the topological configurations and dynamics of individual point defect vacancies and interstitials in a two-dimensional colloidal crystal. Our Brownian dynamics simulations show that the diffusion mechanism for vacancy defects occurs in two phases. The defect can glide along the crystal lattice directions, and it can rotate during an excited topological transition configuration to assume a different direction for the next period of gliding. The results for the vacancy defects are in good agreement with recent experiments. For the interstitial point defects, which were not studied in the experiments, we find several of the same modes of motion as in the vacancy defect case along with two additional diffusion pathways. The interstitial defects are more mobile than the vacancy defects due to the more two-dimensional nature of the diffusion of the interstitial defects.
Uniform Conversions of Operating Points and Characteristics of Compressor
Ostromuhov, L A
2011-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
In the paper, some aspects of the polytropic analysis are developed that concerned with various processes changing the thermodynamic state of flow of a real fluid and reduction of these processes to processes having a given temperature and pressure of a given real mixture at the inlet. It is shown that all parameters of the process can be converted under condition of full similarity of flow that is formulated in the paper. An operating point of a compressor represents such process. It is to emphasize that parameters of the reduced point include not only volume flow, speed and polytropic head, for which requirement of similarity of flow at inlet is sufficient, but also polytropic exponent, polytropic efficiency, outlet pressure and outlet temperature.

Filling of a cavity with zero-point electromagnetic radiation
Jiri J. Mares; V. Spicka; J. Kristofik; P. Hubik

In the present contribution we analyse a simple thought process at T = 0 in an idealized heat engine having partitions made of a material with an upper frequency cut-off and bathed in zero-point (ZP) electromagnetic radiation. As a result, a possible mechanism of filling real cavities with ZP radiation based on Doppler's effect has been suggested and corresponding entropy changes are discussed.
Reverse Integration for Computing Stationary Points of Unstable Stiff Systems
C. W. Gear; Ioannis Kevrekidis
2003-02-24T23:59:59.000Z
Using existing, forward-in-time integration schemes, we demonstrate that it is possible to compute unstable, saddle-type fixed points of stiff systems of ODEs when the stable compenents are fast (i.e., rapidly damped) while the unstable components are slow. The approach has implications for the reverse (backward in time) integration of such stiff systems, and for the coarse reverse integration of microscopic/stochastic simulations.
Zero point energy on extra dimension: Noncommutative Torus
S. Fabi; B. Harms; G. Karatheodoris
2007-04-25T23:59:59.000Z
In this paper we calculate the zero point energy density experienced by observers on M^4 due to a massless scalar field defined throughout M^4 x T^2_F, where T^2_F are fuzzy extra dimensions. Using the Green's function approach we calculate the energy density for the commutative torus and the fuzzy torus. We calculate then the energy density for the fuzzy torus using the Hamiltonian approach. Agreement is shown between Green's function and Hamiltonian approaches.

Point Source Detection and Characterization for Vehicle Radiation Portal Monitors
Runkle, Robert C.; Mercier, Terre M.; Anderson, Kevin K.; Carlson, Deborah K.
2005-12-01T23:59:59.000Z
Many international border crossings presently screen cargo for illicit nuclear material using radiation portal monitors that measure the gamma ray and/or neutron flux emitted by vehicles. The fact that many target sources have a point-like geometry can be exploited to detect sub-threshold sources and filter out benign sources that frequently possess a distributed geometry. This report describes a two-step process, which has the potential to complement other alarm algorithms, for detecting and characterizing point sources. The first step applies a matched filter whereas step two uses maximum likelihood estimation. In a base-case simulation, matched filtering detected a 250-cps source injected onto a white-noise background at a 95-percent detection probability and a 0.003 false alarm probability. For the same simulation, the probability of success for the maximum likelihood estimation technique performed well at source strengths of 250 and 400 cps. These simulations provided a best-case feasibility study for this technique, which will be extended to experimental data that possess false point-source signatures resulting from background shielding caused by vehicle design and cargo distribution.
On the Scission Point Configuration of Fisioning Nuclei
Ivanyuk, Fedir
2013-01-01T23:59:59.000Z
The scission of a nucleus into two fragments is at present the least understood part of the fission process, though the most important for the formation of the observables. To investigate the potential energy landscape at the largest possible deformations, i.e. at the scission point (line, hypersurface), the Strutinsky's optimal shape approach is applied. For the accurate description of the mass-asymmetric nuclear shape at the scission point, it turned out necessary to construct an interpolation between the two sets of constraints for the elongation and mass asymmetry which are applied successfully at small deformations (quadrupole and octupole moments) and for separated fragments (the distance between the centers of mass and the difference of fragments masses). In addition, a constraint on the neck radius was added, what makes it possible to introduce the so called super-short and super-long shapes at the scission point and to consider the contributions to the observable data from different fission modes.

The calculated results for the mass distribution of the fission fragment and the Coulomb repulsion energy "immediately after scission" are in a reasonable agreement with experimental data.
Exceptional points for chiral Majorana fermions in arbitrary dimensions
Ipsita Mandal
2015-07-10T23:59:59.000Z
Certain real parameters of a Hamiltonian, when continued to complex values, can give rise to singular points called exceptional points ($EP$'s), where two or more eigenvalues coincide and the complexified Hamiltonian becomes non-diagonalizable. We show that for a generic $d$-dimensional topological superconductor/superfluid with a chiral symmetry, one can find $EP$'s associated with the chiral zero energy Majorana fermions bound to a topological defect/edge. Exploiting the chiral symmetry, we propose a formula for counting the number ($n$) of such chiral zero modes. We also establish the connection of these solutions to the Majorana fermion wavefunctions in the position space. The imaginary parts of these momenta are related to the exponential decay of the wavefunctions localized at the defect/edge, and hence their change of sign at a topological phase transition point signals the appearance or disappearance of a chiral Majorana zero mode. Our analysis thus explains why topological invariants like the winding number, defined for the corresponding Hamiltonian in the momentum space for a defectless system with periodic boundary conditions, captures the number of admissible Majorana fermion solutions for the position space Hamiltonian with defect(s). Finally, we conclude that $EP$'s cannot be associated with the Majorana fermion wavefunctions for systems with no chiral symmetry, though one can use our formula for counting $n$, using complex $k$ solutions where the determinant of the corresponding BdG Hamiltonian vanishes.

The Three-Point Correlation Function in Cosmology
Masahiro Takada; Bhuvnesh Jain
2003-01-27T23:59:59.000Z
With the advent of high-quality surveys in cosmology the full three-point correlation function will be a valuable statistic for describing structure formation models. It contains information on cosmological parameters and detailed halo properties that cannot be extracted from the two-point correlation function. We use the halo clustering model to analytically calculate the three-point correlation function (3PCF) for general cosmological fields. We present detailed results for the configuration dependence of the 3-dimensional mass and galaxy distributions and the 2-dimensional cosmic shear field. We work in real space, where higher order correlation functions on small scales are easier to measure and interpret, but halo model calculations get rapidly intractable. Hence we develop techniques for accurate evaluations of the 1, 2 and 3-halo contributions to the 3PCF. The 3PCF violates the hierarchical ansatz in both its scale and configuration dependence. We study the behavior of the coefficient Q in the hierarchical expansion from large, quasilinear scales down to about 20 kpc. We find that the nonlinear 3PCF is sensitive to the halo profile of massive halos, especially its inner slope. We model the distribution of galaxies in halos and show that the 3PCF of red galaxies has a weaker configuration and scale dependence than the mass, while for blue galaxies it is very sensitive to the parameters of the galaxy formation model. The 3PCF from weak lensing on the other hand shows different scalings due to projection effects and a sensitivity to cosmological parameters.

Electromagnetic nucleon form factors in instant and point form
T. Melde; K. Berger; L. Canton; W. Plessas; R. F. Wagenbrunn
2007-09-30T23:59:59.000Z
We present a study of the electromagnetic structure of the nucleons with constituent quark models in the framework of relativistic quantum mechanics. In particular, we address the construction of spectator-model currents in the instant and point forms. Corresponding results for the elastic nucleon electromagnetic form factors as well as charge radii and magnetic moments are presented. We also compare results obtained by different realistic nucleon wave functions stemming from alternative constituent quark models. Finally, we discuss the theoretical uncertainties that reside in the construction of spectator-model transition operators.

Positron annihilation spectroscopy in both conventional and coincidence Doppler broadening mode is used for studying the effect of growth conditions on the point defect balance in GaSb:Bi epitaxial layers grown by molecular beam epitaxy. Positron annihilation characteristics in GaSb are also calculated using density functional theory and compared to experimental results. We conclude that while the main positron trapping defect in bulk samples is the Ga antisite, the Ga vacancy is the most prominent trap in the samples grown by molecular beam epitaxy. The results suggest that the p–type conductivity is caused by different defects in GaSb grown with different methods.
Wave chaos in quantum systems with point interaction

The authors study perturbations {cflx H} of the quantized version {cflx H}{sub 0} of integrable Hamiltonian systems by point interactions. They relate the eigenvalues of {cflx H} to the zeros of a certain meromorphic function {xi}. Assuming the eigenvalues of {cflx H}{sub 0} are Poisson distributed, they get detailed information on the joint distribution of the zeros of {xi} and give bounds on the probability density for the spacings of eigenvalues of {cflx H}. Their results confirm the wave chaos phenomenon, as different from the quantum chaos phenomenon predicted by random matrix theory.

Landau Free Energy and Analytic Tricritical Point in Holographic Superfluid
Wung-Hong Huang
2015-02-24T23:59:59.000Z
We investigate the analytical method in studying the holographic superfluid model which is described by Maxwell field minimally coupling to a charged scalar field in a fixed AdS black hole background. We propose a method that enables us to find exact value of coefficient in the solution and thus obtain higher-order expansion of the associated Landau free energy of the holographic superfluid with flow. We determine the critical value of superfluid velocity at the tricritical point of holographic superfluid and compare it with the numerical value.

In this paper we calculate the zero point energy density experienced by observers on M{sup 4} due to a massless scalar field defined throughout M{sup 4}xT{sub F}{sup 2}, where T{sub F}{sup 2} are fuzzy extra dimensions. Using the Green's function approach we calculate the energy density for the commutative torus and the fuzzy torus. We also calculate the energy density for the fuzzy torus using the Hamiltonian approach. Agreement is shown between the Green's function and Hamiltonian approaches.

It is proposed that a study of the ratio of shear viscosity to entropy density $\\frac{\\eta}{s}$ as a function of the baryon chemical potential $\\mu_B$, and temperature T, provides a dynamic probe for the critical end point (CEP) in hot and dense QCD matter. An initial estimate from an elliptic flow excitation function gives $\\mu^{\\text{cep}}_B \\sim 150-180$ MeV and $T_{\\text{cep}} \\sim 165 - 170$ MeV for the location of the the CEP. These values place the CEP in the range for "immediate" validation at RHIC.
Repulsive gravity near naked singularities and point massive particles
J. W. Maluf
2014-05-05T23:59:59.000Z
We investigate the existence of repulsive gravitational acceleration near naked singularities. The investigation is carried out by means of the acceleration tensor, which is a coordinate invariant object. We find that the gravitational acceleration is repulsive in the vicinity of the origin in the Reissner-Nordstr{\\o}m and in the Kerr space-times, and attractive at large distances in the expected Newtonian way. We further address the space-time of a point massive particle, which also exhibits repulsive effects near the origin.

We study the parameter space of D-dimensional cosmological Einstein gravity together with quadratic curvature terms. In D>4 there are in general two distinct (anti)-de Sitter vacua. We show that, for an appropriate choice of the parameters, there exists a critical point for one of the vacua, with only massless tensor, but neither massive tensor nor scalar, gravitons. At criticality, the linearized excitations have formally vanishing energy (as do black hole solutions). A further restriction of the parameters gives a one-parameter cosmological Einstein plus Weyl{sup 2} model with a unique vacuum, whose {Lambda} is determined.
Reactor Vessel Removal: Improving Performance Big Rock Point Lessons Learned

The Big Rock Point (BRP) reactor vessel was successfully removed, packaged in a Type B shipping container, transported, and buried. The process took almost 4 years of work by many people and a variety of companies. This paper will discuss several areas that can reduce schedule time, resulting in reduced cost and employee dose exposure. For maximum cost effectiveness, these lessons should be applied during the planning stages when developing baseline cost and schedule, As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) budgets, and work processes.

Measurements of air showers made using the hybrid technique developed with the fluorescence and surface detectors of the Pierre Auger Observatory allow a sensitive search for point sources of EeV photons anywhere in the exposed sky. A multivariate analysis reduces the background of hadronic cosmic rays. The search is sensitive to a declination band from –85° to +20°, in an energy range from 10{sup 17.3} eV to 10{sup 18.5} eV. No photon point source has been detected. An upper limit on the photon flux has been derived for every direction. The mean value of the energy flux limit that results from this, assuming a photon spectral index of –2, is 0.06 eV cm{sup –2} s{sup –1}, and no celestial direction exceeds 0.25 eV cm{sup –2} s{sup –1}. These upper limits constrain scenarios in which EeV cosmic ray protons are emitted by non-transient sources in the Galaxy.
Exceptional points, phase rigidity and nonlinear Schrödinger equation
Hichem Eleuch; Ingrid Rotter
2014-10-06T23:59:59.000Z
The natural environment of a localized quantum system is the continuum of scattering wavefunctions into which the system is embedded. It can be changed by external fields, however never be deleted. The control of the system's properties by varying a certain parameter provides us information on the system. It is, in many cases, counterintuitive and points to the same phenomena in different systems in spite of the specific differences between them. In our paper, we use a schematic model in order to simulate the main features of small open quantum systems. At low level density, the system is described well by standard Hermitian quantum physics while fundamental differences appear at high level density due to the non-Hermiticity of the Hamiltonian which cannot be neglected under this condition. The influence of exceptional points, the phase rigidity of the wavefunctions and the nonlinearities in the equations are discussed by means of different numerical and (when possible) analytical results. The transition from a closed system at low level density to an open one at high level density occurs smoothly.
Controlling systems that drift through a tipping point
Nishikawa, Takashi, E-mail: t-nishikawa@northwestern.edu [Department of Physics and Astronomy, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois 60208 (United States); Ott, Edward [Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742 (United States)

Slow parameter drift is common in many systems (e.g., the amount of greenhouse gases in the terrestrial atmosphere is increasing). In such situations, the attractor on which the system trajectory lies can be destroyed, and the trajectory will then go to another attractor of the system. We consider the case where there are more than one of these possible final attractors, and we ask whether we can control the outcome (i.e., the attractor that ultimately captures the trajectory) using only small controlling perturbations. Specifically, we consider the problem of controlling a noisy system whose parameter slowly drifts through a saddle-node bifurcation taking place on a fractal boundary between the basins of multiple attractors. We show that, when the noise level is low, a small perturbation of size comparable to the noise amplitude applied at a single point in time can ensure that the system will evolve toward a target attracting state with high probability. For a range of noise levels, we find that the minimum size of perturbation required for control is much smaller within a time period that starts some time after the bifurcation, providing a “window of opportunity” for driving the system toward a desirable state. We refer to this procedure as tipping point control.
Quantum adiabatic evolution using fixed-point quantum search
Avatar Tulsi
2015-04-19T23:59:59.000Z
A quantum system can be evolved from the ground state of an initial Hamiltonian to that of a final Hamiltonian by adiabatically changing the Hamiltonian with respect to time. The system remains in the ground-state of time-changing Hamiltonian provided the change is slow enough. More precisely, if $g$ is the minimum energy gap between the ground state and other eigenstates of time-changing Hamiltonian then the evolution time must scale as the inverse square of $g$ for a successful evolution. Childs et al.~\\cite{childs} proposed an alternative, where the system is kept in the ground state of a time-changing Hamiltonian by doing measurements at suitably small enough time intervals. Their scheme is successful only if the time scales as the inverse cube of $g$, and thus the time-scaling is inferior to the adiabatic evolution. Here, we propose another alternative which is essentially similar to the Childs' scheme but uses the concept of fixed-point quantum search (FPQS) algorithm~\\cite{fixed1,fixed2} to recover the inverse-square time-scaling behaviour of adiabatic evolution. Our algorithm uses selective transformations of the unknown ground states and phase-estimation algorithm (PEA) is the main tool to approximate such selective transformations. Thus we demonstrate an important application of fixed-point quantum search which achieves monotonic convergence towards the desired final state.

We present our methods to fit the two point correlators for light, strange, and charmed pseudoscalar meson physics with the highly improved staggered quark (HISQ) action. We make use of the least-squares fit including the full covariance matrix of the correlators and including Gaussian constraints on some parameters. We fit the correlators on a variety of the HISQ ensembles. The lattice spacing ranges from 0.15 fm down to 0.06 fm. The light sea quark mass ranges from 0.2 times the strange quark mass down to the physical light quark mass. The HISQ ensembles also include lattices with different volumes and with unphysical values of the strange quark mass. We use the results from this work to obtain our preliminary results of $f_D$, $f_{D_s}$, $f_{D_s}/f_{D}$, and ratios of quark masses presented in another talk [1].
Gravity Role in Classical Electrodynamics of Charged Point Source

This paper deals with the problem of a point-like charged source under the influence of the external electromagnetic field in terms of perturbation theory for GR equations. It is obtained that GR, in contrast with the classical electrodynamics, in linear perturbation theory predicts an unlimited growth of the dipole perturbation. It is shown that the reason for this unlimited perturbation growth might be related to the presence of the unstable rotational perturbation mode. The analysis of the conditions under which this instability may disappear is performed. The momentum value at which the stability is reached is estimated. These estimations give the electron spin by the order of magnitude (when charge value is equal to elementary one).

Based on the method of collective variables we develop the statistical field theory for the study of a simple charge-asymmetric $1:z$ primitive model (SPM). It is shown that the well-known approximations for the free energy, in particular DHLL and ORPA, can be obtained within the framework of this theory. In order to study the gas-liquid critical point of SPM we propose the method for the calculation of chemical potential conjugate to the total number density which allows us to take into account the higher order fluctuation effects. As a result, the gas-liquid phase diagrams are calculated for $z=2-4$. The results demonstrate the qualitative agreement with MC simulation data: critical temperature decreases when $z$ increases and critical density increases rapidly with $z$.
Adaptive Ray Tracing for Radiative Transfer around Point Sources

We describe a novel adaptive ray tracing scheme to solve the equation of radiative transfer around point sources in hydrodynamical simulations. The angular resolution adapts to the local hydrodynamical resolution and hence is of use for adaptive meshes as well as adaptive smooth particle hydrodynamical simulations. Recursive creation of rays ensures ease of implementation. The multiple radial integrations needed to solve the time dependent radiative transfer are sped up significantly using a quad-tree once the rays are cast. Simplifications advantageous for methods with one radiation source are briefly discussed. The suggested method is easily generalized to speed up Monte Carlo radiative transfer techniques. In summary a nearly optimal use of long characteristics is presented and aspects of its implementation and comparison to other methods are given.
