  • I show that the evolution of a two dimensional surface in a Laplacian field can be described by Hamiltonian dynamics. First the growing region is mapped conformally to the interior of the unit circle, creating in the process a set of mathematical zeros and poles that evolve dynamically as the surface grows. Then the dynamics of these quasi-particles are transformed into a seperable action-angle Hamiltonian that describes an orbital motion on a torus. A specific case is discussed explicitly, which demonstrates the integrability of the surface-tension-free Laplacian growth process. This formulation holds as long as the singularities of the mapmore » are confined to within the unit circle. This approach further allows for surface tension to be introduced as an energetic term in the resulting Hamiltonian which effects repulsion between the quasi-particles and the surface. These results are used here to formulate a first-principles statistical theory of pattern formation in stochastic growth, where noise is a key player.« less
  • The evolution of two dimensional interfaces in a Laplacian field is discussed. By mapping the growing region conformally onto the unit disk, the problem is converted to the dynamics of a many-body system. This problem is shown to be Hamiltonian. An extension of the many body approach to a continuous density is discussed. The Hamiltonian structure allows introduction of surface effects as an external field. These results are used to formulate a first-principles statistical theory for the morphology of the interface using statistical mechanics for the many-body system.
  • The authors proposes a theory for the nonlinear evolution of two dimensional interfaces in Laplacian fields. The growing region is conformally mapped onto the unit disk, generating an equivalent many-body system whose dynamics and statistics are studied. The process is shown to be Hamiltonian, with the Hamiltonian being the imaginary part of the complex electrostatic potential. Surface effects are introduced through the Hamiltonian as an external field. An extension to a continuous density of particles is presented. The results are used to study the morphology of the interface using statistical mechanics for the many-body system. The distribution of the curvaturemore » and the moments of the growth probability along the interface are calculated exactly from the distribution of the particles. In the dilute limit, the distribution of the curvature is shown to develop algebraic tails, which may, for the first time, explain the origin of fractality in diffusion controlled processes.« less
  • We demonstrate the potential of forthcoming {micro} {yields} e{gamma} and {mu}-e conversion experiments to implicate or disfavor solutions to the gauge hierarchy problem before the advent of the CERN Large Hadron Collider. Solutions of dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking, little Higgs, supersymmetry, and extra dimensions are considered. Correlations of {mu} {yields} e{gamma} and {mu}-e conversion branching ratios are analyzed for discriminating patterns. Measurements of these exotic muon decays may have compelling implications for supersymmetric solutions.
