Title: A high precision semi-analytic mass function

Abstract

In this paper, extending past works of Del Popolo, we show how a high precision mass function (MF) can be obtained using the excursion set approach and an improved barrier taking implicitly into account a non-zero cosmological constant, the angular momentum acquired by tidal interaction of proto-structures and dynamical friction. In the case of the ΛCDM paradigm, we find that our MF is in agreement at the 3% level to Klypin's Bolshoi simulation, in the mass range M {sub vir} = 5 × 10{sup 9} h {sup −1} M {sub ⊙}–−5 × 10{sup 14} h {sup −1} M {sub ⊙} and redshift range 0 ∼< z ∼< 10. For z = 0 we also compared our MF to several fitting formulae, and found in particular agreement with Bhattacharya's within 3% in the mass range 10{sup 12}–10{sup 16} h {sup −1} M {sub ⊙}. Moreover, we discuss our MF validity for different cosmologies.

  • Starting from an earlier benchmark analytical calculation of the luminosity process {ital e}{sup +}{ital e{minus}}{r arrow}{ital e}{sup +}{ital e{minus}}+({gamma}) at the SLAC Linear Collider (SLC) and the CERN {ital e}{sup +}{ital e{minus}} collider LEP, we use the methods of Yennie, Frautschi, and Suura to develop an analytical improved naive exponentiated formula for this process. The formula is compared to our multiple-photon Monte Carlo event generator BHLUMI (1.13) for the same process. We find agreement on the overall cross-section normalization between the exponentiated formula and BHLUMI below the 0.2% level. In this way, we obtain an important cross-check on the normalizationmore » of our higher-order results in BHLUMI and we arrive at formulas which represent the LEP/SLC luminosity process in the below 1% {ital Z}{sup 0} physics tests of the SU(2){sub {ital L}}{times}U(1) theory in complete analogy with the famous high-precision {ital Z}{sup 0} line-shape formulas for the {ital e}{sup +}{ital e{minus}}{r arrow}{mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup {minus}} process discussed by Berends {ital et} {ital al}., for example.« less
  • We present a semi-analytic model for low (L) to high (H) mode transition power threshold (P{sub th}). Two main assumptions are made in our study. First, high poloidal mode number drift resistive ballooning modes (high-m DRBM) are assumed to be the dominant turbulence driver in a narrow edge region near to last closed flux surface. Second, the pre-transition edge profile and turbulent diffusivity at the narrow edge region pertain to turbulent equipartition. An edge power balance relation is derived by calculating the dissipated power flux through both turbulent conduction and convection, and radiation in the edge region. P{sub th} ismore » obtained by imposing the turbulence quench rule due to sheared E × B rotation. Evaluation of P{sub th} shows a good agreement with experimental results in existing machines. Increase of P{sub th} at low density (i.e., the existence of roll-over density in P{sub th} vs. density) is shown to originate from the longer scale length of the density profile than that of the temperature profile.« less
  • The domain of analyticity of the vertex function as a function of three complex variables is discussed in the frame of the axiomatic theory of fields. The method supplies knowledge about the case in which the three lower limits on the mass spectra of the intermediate states are different from each other. (auth)
  • In the frame of the conventional axiomatic theory of quantized fields,- the vertex function is analytic in a domain bounded by an analytic hypersurface and the three static cuts, provided the three lower limits on the mass spectrum are equal. Giving priority to the spectral condition, information from the local commutativity is less utilized than in G. Kallen and A. Wightman's work (Kgl. Dan. Mat.-fys. Skrifter, 1: No. 6 (19581). The union of the new domain and that of Kallen-Wightman is larger than each of them alone. (auth)
