Title: Excursions through KK modes

Abstract

In this article we study Kaluza-Klein (KK) dimensional reduction of massive Abelian gauge theories with charged matter fields on a circle. Since local gauge transformations change position dependence of the charged fields, the decomposition of the charged matter fields into KK modes is gauge dependent. While whole KK mass spectrum is independent of the gauge choice, the mode number depends on the gauge. The masses of the KK modes also depend on the field value of the zero-mode of the extra dimensional component of the gauge field. In particular, one of the KK modes in the KK tower of each massless 5D charged field becomes massless at particular values of the extra-dimensional component of the gauge field. When the extra-dimensional component of the gauge field is identified with the inflaton, this structure leads to recursive cosmological particle productions.

  • We propose a method for calculating the degree of polarization of nonmonochromatic radiation as it propagates through a single-mode fiber optical waveguide (SMF), based on dividing the length of the fiber into segments equal to the depolarization length of the radiation in the SMF. We have obtained the dependences of the degree of polarization of the radiation on the length of the fiber for an SMF with strong and weak anisotropy. In the case of anisotropic SMFs characterized by weak coupling of orthogonal modes, the results match those obtained previously by other calculation methods. The results for weakly anisotropic SMFsmore » characterized by strong coupling of orthogonal modes are obtained here for the first time.« less
  • A simple and novel strategy for damping subsynchronous resonant oscillations through control of converter firing angles of a superconducting magnetic energy storage system (SMES) is proposed. The strategy is derived such that the current injected or drawn by the SMES compensates for any deviation in real and reactive power in the system. The proposed control has been tested on the IEEE second benchmark model for subsynchronous resonance studies. It has been found to eliminate the slowly growing transients resulting from the unstable modes very effectively. The control algorithm is simple and its realization will require very little hardware.
  • The growth of an ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) instability in a high-temperature plasma is calculated in the case where the plasma {beta} is driven slowly through its instability threshold. The MHD perturbation grows faster than exponentially, approximately as exp[(t/{tau}){sup 3/2}]. Its characteristic growth time {tau}{approximately}( (3) /(2) ){sup 2/3}{cflx {gamma}}{sub MHD}{sup {minus}2/3}{gamma}{sub h}{sup {minus}1/3} is a hybrid of the ideal MHD incremental growth rate {cflx {gamma}}{sub MHD} and the heating rate {gamma}{sub h}. This simple model agrees well with the observed growth of disruption precursors in high {beta} DIII-D [J. L. Luxon and L. G. Davis, Fusion Technol. {bold 8}, 441more » (1985)] discharges having strongly peaked pressure profiles, where the observed growth times of {ge}10{sup {minus}4} s are significantly slower than the typical ideal MHD time scale of {le}10{sup {minus}5} s. {copyright} {ital 1999 American Institute of Physics.}« less
  • We present time-resolved x-ray images with 30 nm spatial and 70 ps temporal resolution, which reveal details of the spatially resolved magnetization evolution in nanoscale samples of various dimensions during reversible spin-torque switching processes. Our data in conjunction with micromagnetic simulations suggest a simple unified picture of magnetic switching based on the motion of a magnetic vortex. With decreasing size of the magnetic element the path of the vortex core moves from inside to outside of the nanoelement, and the switching process evolves from a curled nonuniform to an increasingly uniform mode.
  • Two-component signal transduction systems are widespread in prokaryotes and control numerous cellular processes. Extensive investigation of sensor kinase and response regulator proteins from many two-component systems has established conserved sequence, structural, and mechanistic features within each family. In contrast, the phosphatases which catalyze hydrolysis of the response regulator phosphoryl group to terminate signal transduction are poorly understood. Here we present structural and functional characterization of a representative of the CheC/CheX/FliY phosphatase family. The X-ray crystal structure of Borrelia burgdorferi CheX complexed with its CheY3 substrate and the phosphoryl analogue BeF{sub 3}{sup -} reveals a binding orientation between a response regulatormore » and an auxiliary protein different from that shared by every previously characterized example. The surface of CheY3 containing the phosphoryl group interacts directly with a long helix of CheX which bears the conserved (E - X{sub 2} - N) motif. Conserved CheX residues Glu96 and Asn99, separated by a single helical turn, insert into the CheY3 active site. Structural and functional data indicate that CheX Asn99 and CheY3 Thr81 orient a water molecule for hydrolytic attack. The catalytic residues of the CheX-CheY3 complex are virtually superimposable on those of the Escherichia coli CheZ phosphatase complexed with CheY, even though the active site helices of CheX and CheZ are oriented nearly perpendicular to one other. Thus, evolution has found two structural solutions to achieve the same catalytic mechanism through different helical spacing and side chain lengths of the conserved acid/amide residues in CheX and CheZ.« less
