Title: Integrable lattices and their sublattices: From the discrete Moutard (discrete Cauchy-Riemann) 4-point equation to the self-adjoint 5-point scheme

Abstract

We present the sublattice approach, a procedure to generate, from a given integrable lattice, a sublattice which inherits its integrability features. We consider, as illustrative example of this approach, the discrete Moutard 4-point equation and its sublattice, the self-adjoint 5-point scheme on the star of the square lattice, which are relevant in the theory of the integrable discrete geometries and in the theory of discrete holomorphic and harmonic functions (in this last context, the discrete Moutard equation is called discrete Cauchy-Riemann equation). Therefore an integrable, at one energy, discretization of elliptic two-dimensional operators is considered. We use the sublattice point of view to derive, from the Darboux transformations and superposition formulas of the discrete Moutard equation, the Darboux transformations and superposition formulas of the self-adjoint 5-point scheme. We also construct, from algebro-geometric solutions of the discrete Moutard equation, algebro-geometric solutions of the self-adjoint 5-point scheme. In particular, we show that the corresponding restrictions on the finite-gap data are of the same type as those for the fixed energy problem for the two-dimensional Schroedinger operator. We finally use these solutions to construct explicit examples of discrete holomorphic and harmonic functions, as well as examples of quadrilateral surfaces in R{sup 3}.

  • We present the full theory for the quasielastic line broadening in Moessbauer spectroscopy and incoherent neutron scattering, caused by atomic jumps in a non-Bravais lattice, the sublattices of which are differently occupied. As a demonstration, the theory is applied to two cases that have been studied experimentally: iron diffusion in cubic Fe[sub 65]Al[sub 35], an ordered [ital B]2 (CsCl) structure (examined by Moessbauer spectroscopy), and nickel diffusion in hcp Ni[sub 53]Sb[sub 47], an ordered [ital B]8 (NiAs) structure (incoherent neutron scattering).
  • In this study, the magnetic properties and magnetic structures of the R 5Ni 2In 4 and the microfibrous R 11Ni 4In 9 compounds with R = Tb and Ho have been examined using magnetization, heat capacity, and neutron diffraction data. Rare earth atoms occupy three and five symmetrically inequivalent rare earth sites in R 5Ni 2In 4 and R 11Ni 4In 9 compounds, respectively. As a result of the intra- and inter-magnetic sublattice interactions, the magnetic exchange interactions are different for various rare earth sites; this leads to a cascade of magnetic transitions with a strong hierarchy in the temperaturemore » dependence of the magnetic orderings.« less
  • Obtaining the set of algebraic equations that directly correspond to a physical phenomenon has been viable in the recent direct discrete method (DDM). Although this method may find its roots in physical and geometrical considerations, there are still some degrees of freedom that one may suspect optimize-able. Here we have used the information embedded in the corresponding adjoint equation to form a local functional, which in turn by its minimization, yield suitable dual mesh positioning.
  • Triple molybdates AgA{sub 3}R(MoO{sub 4}){sub 5} (A=Mg, R=Cr, Fe; A=Mn, R=Al, Cr, Fe, Sc, In) of the NaMg{sub 3}In(MoO{sub 4}){sub 5} type were synthesized and single crystals of AgMg{sub 3}R(MoO{sub 4}){sub 5} (R=Cr, Fe) were grown. In their structures, the MoO{sub 4} tetrahedra, pairs and trimers of edge-shared (Mg, R)O{sub 6} octahedra are connected by common vertices to form a 3D framework. Large framework cavities involve Ag{sup +} cations disordered on three nearby positions with CN=3+1 or 4+1. Alternating (Mg, R)O{sub 6} octahedra and MoO{sub 4} tetrahedra in the framework form quadrangular windows penetrable for Ag{sup +} at elevated temperatures.more » Above 653–673 K, the newly obtained molybdates demonstrate abrupt reduction of the activation energy to 0.4–0.6 eV. At 773 K, AgMg{sub 3}Al(MoO{sub 4}){sub 5} shows electric conductivity 2.5·10{sup −2} S/cm and E{sub a}=0.39 eV compatible with characteristics of the best ionic conductors of the NASICON type. - Graphical abstract: Triple molybdates AgA{sub 3}R(MoO{sub 4}){sub 5} (A=Mg, R=Cr, Fe; A=Mn, R=Al, Cr, Fe, Sc, In) of the NaMg{sub 3}In(MoO{sub 4}){sub 5} type were synthesized, AgMg{sub 3}R(MoO{sub 4}){sub 5} (R=Cr, Fe) were structurally characterized, ion-conductive properties of AgMg{sub 3}Al(MoO{sub 4}){sub 5} were measured.
