Title: Duality between a dark state and a quasi-dark state

Abstract

We study a physical system coupled with two one-mode Bose fields. The physical system is a two-level system or a harmonic oscillator. We prove that each dark and quasi-dark state appears under a proper condition, and then, we derive a duality between the dark state and the quasi-dark state. This duality induces the switch between the dark state and the quasi-dark state.

  • In a series of seven Exosat observations, the bimodal spectral behavior and the quasi-periodic oscillation (QPO)/red noise properties of GX 5-1 show a strict correlation. In one of the two spectral states (characterized by a 'horizontal branch' in the hardness-intensity diagram), strong 20-40 Hz QPO and red noise below about 60 Hz were always present. In the other ('normal branch'), no QPO between 6 and 60 Hz or red noise above 1 Hz were detected, but there was an indication for weak QPO near 5 Hz. In both states 'very low frequency noise' (VLFN) is detected below 0.1 Hz whichmore » has a power-law shape and and which extends down to the lowest observed frequencies (0.0001 Hz). The VLFN is probably not directly related to the QPO. The results are compared to those on Sco X-1 and Cyg X-2 and it is concluded that, although all three sources show bimodal spectral and QPO/red noise behavior, there is a qualitative difference between GX 5-1 and Cyg X-2 on one hand and Sco X-1 on the other. 25 references.« less
  • The dark energy transition between quintessence (w>-1) and phantom (w<-1) regimes (the crossing of the cosmological constant boundary) is studied using the dark energy equation of state. Models characterized by this type of transition are explicitly constructed and their equation of state is found to be implicitly defined. The behavior of the more general models with the implicitly defined equation of state, obtained by the generalization of the explicitly constructed models, is studied to gain insight into the necessary conditions for the occurrence of the transition, as well as to investigate the mechanism behind the transition. It is found thatmore » the parameters of the generalized models need to satisfy special conditions for the transition to happen and that the mechanism behind the transition is the cancellation of the contribution of the cosmological constant boundary. The aspects of the behavior of the generalized models which are not related to the transition are briefly discussed and the role of the implicitly defined dark energy equation of state in the description of the dark energy evolution is emphasized.« less
  • If general relativity is the correct theory of physics on large scales, then there is a differential equation that relates the Hubble expansion function, inferred from measurements of angular diameter distance and luminosity distance, to the growth rate of large scale structure. For a dark energy fluid without couplings or an unusual sound speed, deviations from this consistency relationship could be the signature of modified gravity on cosmological scales. We propose a procedure based on this consistency relation in order to distinguish between some dark energy models and modified gravity models. The procedure uses different combinations of cosmological observations andmore » is able to find inconsistencies when present. As an example, we apply the procedure to a universe described by a recently proposed 5-dimensional modified gravity model. We show that this leads to an inconsistency within the dark energy parameter space detectable by future experiments.« less
  • The problem of maintaining scale and conformal invariance in Maxwell and general N-form gauge theories away from their critical dimension d[sub c] = 2(N + 1) is analyzed. The authors first exhibit the underlying group-theoretical clash between locality, gauge, Lorentz and conformal invariance requirements. Improved-traceless-stress tensors are then constructed; each violates one of the above criteria. However, when d = N + 2, there is a duality equivalence between N-form models and massless scalars in d = N + 2. Here they show that N-form conformal invariance is not lost, by constructing a quasilocal gauge invariant improved stress tensor. Themore » correlators of the scalar theory are then reproduced, including the latter's trace anomaly. This resolves the old conformal invariance paradox between the dual partners.« less
