Evaluation of Forming Limit by the 3 Dimensional Local Bifurcation Theory
Abstract
A theoretical prediction and evaluation method for the sheet metal formability is developed on the basis of the threedimensional local bifurcation theory previously proposed by authors. The forming limit diagram represented on the plane defined by the ratio of stress component to workhardening rate is perfectly independent of plastic strain history. The upper and the lower limit of the sheet formability are indicated by the 3D critical line and the StoerenRice's critical line on this plane, respectively. In order to verify the above mentioned behavior of the proposed forming limit diagram, the experimental research is also conducted. From the standpoint of the mechanical instability theory, a new concept called instability factor is introduced. It represents a degree of acceleration by current stress for developing the local bifurcation mode toward a fracture. The instability factor provides a method to evaluate a forming allowance which is useful to appropriate identification for a forming limit and to optimize the forming condition. The proposed criterion provides not only the moment to initiate the necking but also the local bifurcation mode vector and the direction of necking line.

Local bifurcation in power systems: Theory, computation, and application
This paper provides an overview of local bifurcation theory and its application to power system voltage stability analysis. The qualitative behavior of power system dynamics as modeled by differentialalgebraic equations is discussed, followed by a summary of the concepts and tools for the analysis of local bifurcation from equilibria. Computational methods for locating and classifying bifurcation points as they have been applied in power system analysis are reviewed. Several examples are given. 
Bifurcation theory of a onedimensional transport model for the LH transition
Transitions between low and highconfinement (LH transitions) in magnetically confined plasmas can appear as three qualitatively different types: sharp, smooth, and oscillatory. Bifurcation analysis unravels these possible transition types and how they are situated in parameter space. In this paper the bifurcation analysis is applied to a 1dimensional model for the radial transport of energy and density near the edge of magnetically confined plasmas. This phenomenological LH transition model describes the reduction of the turbulent transport by E×Bflow shear selfconsistently with the evolution of the radial electric field. Therewith, the exact parameter space, including the threshold values of the controlmore » 
Quantization of a nonlocal Abelian gauge theory and certain locallimit implications
We formulate a path integral for quantizing a nonlocal Abelian gauge theory without matter fields. Having specified the precise meaning of local limit we perform a strongcoupling calculation in the continuum which leads to the confinement property, in this limit. Finally, it is also shown that the zerocoupling limit of the theory yields Maxwell's theory in its quantized form. 
Fourdimensional quantum study on exothermic complexforming reactions: Cl{sup }+CH{sub 3}Br{yields}ClCH{sub 3}+Br{sup }
The exothermic gasphase bimolecular nucleophilic substitution (S{sub N}2) reaction Cl{sup }+CH{sub 3}Br ({upsilon}{sub 1}{sup '},{upsilon}{sub 2}{sup '},{upsilon}{sub 3}{sup '}){yields}ClCH{sub 3} ({upsilon}{sub 1},{upsilon}{sub 2},{upsilon}{sub 3})+Br{sup } and the corresponding endothermic reverse reaction have been studied by timeindependent quantum scattering calculations in hyperspherical coordinates on a coupledcluster potentialenergy surface. The dimensionalityreduced model takes four degrees of freedom into account [ClC and CBr stretching modes (quantum numbers {upsilon}{sub 3}{sup '} and {upsilon}{sub 3}); totally symmetric modes of the methyl group, i.e., CH stretching ({upsilon}{sub 1}{sup '} and {upsilon}{sub 1}) and umbrella bending vibrations ({upsilon}{sub 2}{sup '} and {upsilon}{sub 2})].
