Theory of compoundnucleus reactions: Gaussian versus nonGaussian statistics of its parameters
A theory of compoundnucleus reactions is formulated which is valid for most of the physical situations: from the domain of isolated to the domain of overlapping resonances. We allow for a more general than Gaussian statistics of the resonance decay amplitudes. The energy spectrum is parametrized in terms of a variable sigma/sub p/ that measures its stiffness. The following results are obtained: We formulate a condition under which HauserFeshbach expressions emerge. They include an elastic enhancement factor W. This factor essentially depends on the fourth moment of the decay amplitudes and the stiffness parameter sigma/sub p/. Within our model, sigma/submore » 
Increasing spinflips and decreasing cost: Perturbative corrections for external singles to the complete active space spin flip model for lowlying excited states and strong correlation
An approximation to the spinflip extended configuration interaction singles method is developed using a secondorder perturbation theory approach. In addition to providing significant efficiency advantages, the new framework is general for an arbitrary number of spinflips, with the current implementation being applicable for up to around 4 spinflips. Two new methods are introduced: one which is developed using nondegenerate perturbation theory, spinflip complete activespace (SFCAS(S)), and a second quasidegenerate perturbation theory method, SFCAS(S){sub 1}. These two approaches take the SFCAS wavefunction as the reference, and then perturbatively includes the effect of single excitations. For the quasidegenerate perturbation theory method, SFCAS(S){submore » 
NonGaussian energy level statistics for some integrable systems
The number of levels with energy less than [ital E] of an integrable quantum system with two degrees of freedom is equal to [lambda][ital E]+[ital sE][sup 1/4], where [lambda] is a constant and [ital s] a fluctuating quantity with a nonGaussian distribution. The probability distribution of [ital s] decreases roughly like exp([minus][ital s][sup 4]) when [ital s] is large. The number of levels between [ital E] and [ital E]+[ital z] [radical][ital E] is equal to [lambda][ital z] [radical][ital E] +[ital rE][sup 1/4] where [ital r] is another fluctuating quantity. The distribution of [ital r] tends to a Gaussian distribution asmore » 
Effect of nonGaussian statistics on the mass multiplicity of cosmic structures
The mass function of cosmic structures is computed in the framework of the hierarchical clustering picture for a general statistics of density perturbations. Hierarchical distributions are extensively analyzed; it is found that the multiplicity function preserves the PressSchechter functional form with enhanced power on large scales compared to the Gaussian case. A class of scaleinvariant nonGaussian statistics, among which are a model due to Peebles and the lognormal distribution, are also analyzed. All these predict a mass function which is a decreasing power law at low mass followed by an exponential decay at high mass; none of them, however, yieldsmore »
