  • We study the phase structure of mixed-action QCD with two Wilson sea quarks and any number of chiral valence quarks (and ghosts), starting from the chiral Lagrangian. A priori the effective theory allows for a rich phase structure, including a phase with a condensate made of sea and valence quarks. In such a phase, mass eigenstates would become admixtures of sea and valence fields, and pure-sea correlation functions would depend on the parameters of the valence sector, in contradiction with the actual setup of mixed-action simulations. Using that the spectrum of the chiral Dirac operator has a gap for nonzeromore » quark mass we prove that spontaneous symmetry breaking of the flavor symmetries can only occur within the sea sector. This rules out a mixed condensate and implies restrictions on the low-energy constants of the effective theory.« less
  • Coulomb excitation experiments in inverse kinematics on beams of stable {sup 134,132,130,128,126,124}Xe ions impinging on a carbon target at energies of 82% of the respective Coulomb barriers have been performed. The one-phonon 2{sub 1,ms}{sup +} states have been tracked and identified in {sup 134,132,130,128}Xe from the 2{sub i,ms}{sup +}{yields}2{sub 1}{sup +} M1 strength distributions and from 0{sub 1}{sup +}{yields}2{sub i,ms}{sup +} E2 strength distributions responsible for the one-step Coulomb excitation processes. The evolution of the one-phonon 2{sub 1,ms}{sup +} state within the seven even-even stable Xe isotopes is here presented.
  • We select f(R) gravity models that undergo scale factor duality transformations. As a starting point, we consider the tree-level effective gravitational action of bosonic String Theory coupled with the dilaton field. This theory inherits the Busher's duality of its parent String Theory. Using conformal transformations of the metric tensor, it is possible to map the tree-level dilaton-graviton string effective action into f(R) gravity, relating the dilaton field to the Ricci scalar curvature. Furthermore, the duality can be framed under the standard of Noether symmetries and exact cosmological solutions are derived. Using suitable changes of variables, the string-based f(R) Lagrangians aremore » shown in cases where the duality transformation becomes a parity inversion.« less
