Title: Confined phase in the real time formalism and the fate of the world behind the horizon

Abstract

In the real time formulation of finite temperature field theories, one introduces an additional set of fields (type-2 fields) associated to each field in the original theory (type-1 field). In [J. M. Maldacena, J. High Energy Phys. 04 (2003) 021.], in the context of the anti-de Sitter (AdS)-conformal field theories (CFT) correspondence, Maldacena interpreted type-2 fields as living on a boundary behind the black hole horizon. However, below the Hawking-Page transition temperature, the thermodynamically preferred configuration is the thermal AdS without a black hole, and hence there are no horizon and boundary behind it. This means that when the dual gauge theory is in confined phase, the type-2 fields cannot be associated with the degrees of freedom behind the black hole horizon. I argue that in this case the role of the type-2 fields is to make up bulk type-2 fields of classical closed string field theory on AdS at finite temperature in the real time formalism.

  • Hybrid real-time and embedded software development is an area where software requirements must be subject to highly rigorous and systematic analysis. This paper concentrates on the qualitative formal method to specify the continuous plant and the required system behavior in terms of languages based on the qualitative physics and to verify that the hybrid real-time system satisfies the required system behavior by a qualitative simulation. The qualitative reasoning approach is selected to help the designers concisely specify the desired system properties without having to describe unnecessary details. To demonstrate the effectiveness of using a qualitative formalism to specify and analyzemore » requirements of embedded real-time software, we use a shutdown system (SDS) to illustrate how the software cost reduction (SCR) style specification can be transformed and analyzed.« less
  • One-particle-irreducible amputated graphs differ qualitatively at finite temperature when calculated in the imaginary-time and real-time formalisms. Here we show within the real-time formalism for the three-point function that when external propagators are attached certain amputated functions can be inferred which have a close relation to those of the imaginary-time formalism.
  • A general time-dependent formulation of many-body, multichannel scattering using the channel-coupling-array theory is presented. The formalism is based on the use of the channel-component states, previously introduced by Hahn, Kouri, and Levin. These states obey a set of non-Hermitian matrix equations, the non-Hermiticity arising from the presence of the channel-coupling array W. Despite the lack of Hermiticity, it is shown that the eigenvalues will always be real if the channel-component states obey a fixed-phase convention under time reversal. Use of the channel-component states leads in a straightforward way to an interaction picture and a single S operator. The analog ofmore » the usual two-body (single-channel) result connecting the time-dependent and time-independent descriptions is demonstrated. It is also shown that the channel-component states have the remarkable property that only the component in channel j gives rise to (two-body) outgoing waves in that channel: Components in channels m not-equal j do not yield outgoing waves in channel j. This is explicitly seen from the time-dependent development, but is inherent in the time-independent description. Such a property is known for the Faddeev decomposition in the three-body case; the present work extends and generalizes this result for the case of an arbitrary number of particles. In particular, the present formulation is seen to yield precisely the Faddeev equations for the three-body problem.« less
  • The real time formalism at finite temperature and chemical potential for the nonlocal Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model is developed in the presence of a Gaussian covariant regulator. We construct the most general thermal propagator, by means of the spectral function. As a result, the model involves the propagation of massive quasiparticles. The appearance of complex poles is interpreted as a confinement signal, and, in this case, we have unstable quasiparticles with a finite decay width. An expression for the propagator along the critical line, where complex poles start to appear, is also obtained. A generalization to other covariant regulators is proposed.
  • Purpose: Develop an analytical algorithm to compute the dose delivered by Ir-192 dwell positions with high accuracy using the 3-dimensional (3D) dose distribution of an HDR source. Using our analytical function, the dose delivered by an HDR unit as treatment progresses can be determined using the actual delivered temporal and positional data of each individual dwell. Consequently, true delivered dose can be computed when each catheter becomes active. We hypothesize that the knowledge of such analytical formulation will allow developing HDR systems with a real time treatment evaluation tool to avoid mistreatments. Methods: In our analytic formulation, the dose ismore » computed by using the full anisotropic function data of the TG 43 formalism with 3D ellipsoidal function. The discrepancy between the planned dose and the delivered dose is computed using an analytic perturbation method over the initial dose distribution. This methodology speeds up the computation because only changes in dose discrepancies originated by spatial and temporal deviations are computed. A dose difference map at the point of interest is obtained from these functions and this difference can be shown during treatment in real time to examine the treatment accuracy. Results: We determine the analytical solution and a perturbation function for the 3 translational 3 rotational, and 1D temporal errors in source distributions. The analytic formulation is a sequence of simple equations that can be processed in any modern computer in few seconds. Because computations are based in an analytical solution, small deviations of the dose when sub-millimeter positional changes occur can be detected. Conclusions: We formulated an analytical method to compute 4D dose distributions and dose differences based on an analytical solution and perturbations to the original dose. This method is highly accurate and can be.« less
