  • Intertwining relations for the quantum R-matrix of the SU{sub p,q}(2) invariant spin chain are obtained and the corresponding face model is deduced. An important difference is seen to arise due to the asymmetry generated by the parameters p and q, which leads to a asymmetric face model. An algebraic Bethe ansatz is set up and solved with the help of these intertwining vectors.
  • In a hydrogen moderated system, neutrons may be slowed down to the thermal energy region through only few collisions and the feed-back effect is of considerable importance. The time-dependent n-group Boltzmann transport equation is solved for the infinite homogeneous medium including the fission source under the assumption that moderation is due to elastic scattering with hydrogen atoms. The timedependent solution is given in the form of a series of hypergeometric functions. The requirement for the stationary condition leads to the criticality equation and the stationary solution gives the energy spectrum. How the ordinary fourfactor formula is related to the criticalitymore » condition hereby obtained is explained. The delayed neutron function has an effect upon the steady state neutron spectrum but not upon the criticality condition. The velocity dependency of the neutron energy spectrum is found to be of v ( Σ /sup alpha /- SIGMA / sup 2//2) for every group.« less
  • The dynamics of a nonequilibrium spin system dominated by collisions preserving the total quasimomentum of the interacting electrons and quasiparticles is considered. An analysis of the derived hydrodynamic equations shows that weakly attenuated spin-polarization waves associated with an oscillating drift current can exist in a magnetically inhomogeneous conducting ring. Spin-polarized transport in a ballistic regime of wave propagation through a conductor is also considered, and a simple method is proposed for distinguishing these waves from spin and current oscillations that develop in the hydrodynamic regime. It is shown that a potential difference arises between the leads of an open nonuniformlymore » spin-polarized conductor as a manifestation of spin polarization of electron density. This spin-mediated electrical phenomenon occurs in both hydrodynamic and diffusive limits.« less
  • Using the density functional theory and the nonequilibrium Green’s function method, we study the spin transport behaviors in zigzag boron-nitrogen-carbon nanoribbons (ZBNCNRs) by modulating the edge hydrogenation and the position of B-N nanoribbons (BNNRs) chain. The different edge hydrogenations of the ZBNCNRs and the different position relationships of the BNNRs have been considered systematically. Our results show that the metallic, semimetallic and semiconductive properties of the ZBNCNRs can be modulated by the different edge hydrogenations and different position relationships of BN chains. And our proposaled ZBNCNRs devices act as perfect spin-filters with nearly 100% spin polarization. These effects would havemore » potential applications for boron-nitrogen-carbon-based nanomaterials in spintronics nano-devices.« less
