  • We study ultracold neutral fermion superfluids in the presence of fictitious magnetic fields, as well as charged fermion superfluids in the presence of real magnetic fields. Charged fermion superfluids undergo a phase transition from type-I to type-II superfluidity, where the magnetic properties of the superfluid change from being a perfect diamagnet without vortices to a partial diamagnet with the emergence of the Abrikosov vortex lattice. The transition from type-I to type-II superfluidity is tuned by changing the scattering parameter (interaction) for fixed density. We also find that neutral fermion superfluids such as {sup 6}Li and {sup 40}K are extreme type-IImore » superfluids and are more robust to the penetration of a fictitious magnetic field in the BCS-BEC crossover region near unitarity, where the critical fictitious magnetic field reaches a maximum as a function of the scattering parameter (interaction).« less
  • This paper presents a new fictitious domain formulation for the solution of a strongly elliptic boundary value problem with Neumann boundary conditions for a bounded domain in a finite-dimensional Euclidean space with a smooth (possibly only Lipschitz) boundary. This extends the domain to a larger rectangular domain with periodic boundary conditions for which fast solvers are available. The extended solution converges on the original domain in the appropriate function spaces as the penalty parameter approaches zero. Both wavelet-Galerkin and finite elements numerical approximation schemes are developed using this methodology. The convergence rates of both schemes are comparable, and the usemore » of finite elements requires a parameterization of the boundary, while the wavelet-Galerkin method admits an implicit description of the boundary in terms of a wavelet representation of the boundary measure defined as the distributional gradient of the characteristic function of the interior. The accuracy of both methods is investigated and compared, both theoretically and for numerical test cases. The conclusion is that the methods are comparable, and that the wavelet method allows the use of more general boundaries which are not explicitly parametrized, which would be of greater advantage in higher dimensions (the numerical tests are carried out in two dimensions). 15 refs., 12 figs., 6 tabs.« less
  • To model the sedimentation of the red blood cell (RBC) in a square duct and a circular pipe, the recently developed technique derived from the lattice Boltzmann method and the distributed Lagrange multiplier/fictitious domain method (LBM-DLM/FD) is extended to employ the mesoscopic network model for simulations of the sedimentation of the RBC in flow. The flow is simulated by the lattice Boltzmann method with a strong magnetic body force, while the network model is used for modeling RBC deformation. The fluid-RBC interactions are enforced by the Lagrange multiplier. The sedimentation of the RBC in a square duct and a circularmore » pipe is simulated, revealing the capacity of the current method for modeling the sedimentation of RBC in various flows. Numerical results illustrate that that the terminal setting velocity increases with the increment of the exerted body force. The deformation of the RBC has significant effect on the terminal setting velocity due to the change of the frontal area. The larger the exerted force is, the smaller the frontal area and the larger deformation of the RBC are.« less
  • Geometric phases have been used in NMR to implement controlled phase shift gates for quantum-information processing, only in weakly coupled systems in which the individual spins can be identified as qubits. In this work, we implement controlled phase shift gates in strongly coupled systems by using nonadiabatic geometric phases, obtained by evolving the magnetization of fictitious spin-1/2 subspaces, over a closed loop on the Bloch sphere. The dynamical phase accumulated during the evolution of the subspaces is refocused by a spin echo pulse sequence and by setting the delay of transition selective pulses such that the evolution under the homonuclearmore » coupling makes a complete 2{pi} rotation. A detailed theoretical explanation of nonadiabatic geometric phases in NMR is given by using single transition operators. Controlled phase shift gates, two qubit Deutsch-Jozsa algorithm, and parity algorithm in a qubit-qutrit system have been implemented in various strongly dipolar coupled systems obtained by orienting the molecules in liquid crystal media.« less
