Linear dynamics of classical spin as Mobius transformation
Abstract
Though the overwhelming majority of natural processes occur far from the equilibrium, general theoretical approaches to nonequilibrium phase transitions remain scarce. Recent breakthroughs introduced a description of open dissipative systems in terms of nonHermitian quantum mechanics enabling the identification of a class of nonequilibrium phase transitions associated with the loss of combined parity (reflection) and timereversal symmetries. Here we report that the time evolution of a single classical spin (e.g. monodomain ferromagnet) governed by the LandauLifshitzGilbertSlonczewski equation in the absence of magnetic anisotropy terms is described by a Mobius transformation in complex stereographic coordinates. We identify the paritytime symmetrybreaking phase transition occurring in spintransfer torquedriven linear spin systems as a transition between hyperbolic and loxodromic classes of Mobius transformations, with the critical point of the transition corresponding to the parabolic transformation. However, this establishes the understanding of nonequilibrium phase transitions as topological transitions in configuration space.

Purpose: Log file based IMRT and VMAT QA is a system that analyzes treatment log files and uses delivery parameters to compute the dose to the patient/phantom. This system was previously commissioned for Varian machines, the purpose of this work is to describe the process for commissioning Mobius for use with Elekta machines. Methods: Twelve IMRT and VMAT plans (6×) were planned and delivered and dose was measured using MapCheck, the results were compared to that computed by Mobius. For 10x and 18x, plans were generated, copied to a phantom and delivered, the dose was measured using a single ionmore »

Studies on the magnetic ground state of a spin Mobius strip
In this paper, we report the synthesis, structure and detailed characterisation of three nmembered oxovanadium rings, Na _{n}[(V=O) _{n}Na _{n}(H _{2}O) _{n}(α, β, or γCD) _{2}]•m H _{2}O (n=6, 7, or 8), prepared by the reactions of (V=O)SO _{4}•x H _{2}O with α, β, or γcyclodextrins (CDs) and NaOH in water. Their alternating heterometallic vanadium/sodium cyclic core structures were sandwiched between two CD moieties such that ONaO groups separated the neighbouring vanadyl ions. Antiferromagnetic interactions between the S=1/2 vanadyl ions led to S=0 ground states for the evenmembered rings, but to two quasidegenerate S=1/2 states for the spinfrustrated heptanuclear cluster.Cited by 1 
Equivalence between the EinsteinCartan and general relatively theories in the linear approximation for a classical model of spin
It is pointed out that in the linear approximation of the Einstein Cartan theory a set of rotating bodies and a fluid with the classical model of spin give the same metric of spacetime. (auth) 
The nonlinear dynamics of a linear classical oscillator coupled to a macroscopic quantum object
In this paper the authors will discuss a model for the behavior of an rfSQUID magnetometer, which consists of a macroscopic quantum object which is reactively coupled to a linear classical oscillator. They demonstrate that the coupling between the quantum object and the classical oscillator can lead to manifestly nonlinear behavior in the otherwise linear oscillator; including multiperiodic and chaotic solutions.
