Title: 5-D Choptuik critical exponent and holography

Abstract

Recently, a holographic argument was used to relate the saturation exponent, {gamma}{sub BFKL}, of 4-dimensional Yang-Mills theory in the Regge limit to the Choptuik critical scaling exponent, {gamma}{sub 5d}, in 5-dimensional black hole formation via scalar field collapse [L. Alvarez-Gaume, C. Gomez, and M. A. Vazquez-Mozo, arXiv:hep-th/0611312.]. Remarkably, the numerical value of the former agreed quite well with previous calculations of the latter. We present new results of an improved calculation of {gamma}{sub 5d} with substantially decreased numerical error. Our current result is {gamma}{sub 5d}=0.4131{+-}0.0001, which is close to, but not in strict agreement with, the value of {gamma}{sub BFKL}=0.409 552 quoted in [L. Alvarez-Gaume, C. Gomez, and M. A. Vazquez-Mozo, arXiv:hep-th/0611312.].

  • The specific heat under saturated vapor pressure of pure /sup 4/He and of six /sup 3/He-/sup 4/He mixtures up to X=0.545 was measured in the temperature range 3 x 10/sup -6/
  • The coexistence curve of an ionice liquid--liquid system has been obtained very close to the critical point by measuring the refractive indices of the two phases in equilibrium. The effective exponent {beta}{sub {ital e}} remains close to the classical value of 0.5 to {ital t}=0.0005 or closer to {ital T}{sub {ital c}}. The data are, however, not inconsistent with a limiting exponent of 0.326 provided the Wegner correction terms are very large. This behavior is qualitatively consistent with available theory and other experimental knowledge, but further theory and experiments are needed before quantitative comparisons can be made.
  • We are concerned with the class boundary value problems where {Omega}{contained_in} R{sup n} (n {ge} 4), is a bounded domain with a smooth C{sup 2} boundary, 2{sup *} = 2n/(n-2) and q{sup *} = (2n-2)/(n-2) are the limiting exponents for the embeddings of H{sup 1}({Omega}) respectively into L{sup p}({Omega}) and L{sup q}L{partial_derivative}{Omega} and f and g have a subcritical growth at infinity. The main interest in studying this kind of problems rests in the presence of critical exponents both in the equation and in the nonlinear boundary condition. To fix our mind, let us assume that f and g vanishmore » identically. Then F is a C{sup 1} functional over H{sup 1}{Omega} whose critical points are weak solutions of (P). Regularity up to the boundary of weak solutions has been proved by Cherrier. The major difficulty in applying minimax methods to the search of critical points of F is that, owing to the non compactness of the embeddings, F does not satisfy the Palais Smale compactness condition ((PS) for short). Indeed the functions of a Palais Smale sequence may concentrate at some points of {Omega}. 17 refs.« less
  • We compare x-ray fluorescence holography (XFH) and multiple-energy x-ray holography (MEXH), two techniques that have recently been used to obtain experimental three-dimensional atomic images. For single-energy holograms, these methods are equivalent by virtue of the optical reciprocity theorem. However, XFH can only record holographic information at the characteristic fluorescence energies of the emitting species, while MEXH can record holographic information at any energy above the fluorescent edge of the emitter, thus enabling the suppression of real-twin overlaps and other aberrations and artifacts in atomic images. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
