International Year of Physics
(Daily Express, 2005-03)
This article applauds the declaration of 2005 as the International Year of Physics by the United Nations General Assembly, and hopes that the observance will help all concerned to explore ways of shifting the physics ...
Two-color discrete localized modes and resonant scattering in arrays of nonlinear quadratic optical waveguides
We analyze the properties and stability of two-color discrete localized modes in arrays of channel waveguides where tunable quadratic nonlinearity is introduced as a nonlinear defect by periodic poling of a single waveguide ...
Firing sequence storage using inhibitory synapses in networks of pulsatil nonhomogeneous integrate-and-fire neural oscillators
We discuss a nonhomogeneous population of pulsatil integrate-and-fire neural oscillators, coupled through purely inhibitory synapses. For instantaneous communication, we provide a strategy to generate synaptic couplings ...
Stationary convection in a cylindrical plasma
It is shown that in a current-carrying cylindrical plasma with a free boundary, viscosity and thermal conductivity can lead to large scale steady convection. The physical situation is identical to the case when the plasma ...
Structure of liquid GeO2 from a computer simulation model
The structural properties of liquid GeO2 were investigated using molecular dynamics simulation. A comparison of the obtained pair correlation functions, coordination number, angular distribution, and both the neutron and ...
The physical status of a selected population
Circularly polarized alfven and ion cyclotron waves in space plasmas
The linear and nonlinear theory of circularly-polarized Alfvdn and ion-cyclotron waves in multicomponent plasmas is reviewed. It is shown that minor heavy- ion components play an important role in the dispersive properties ...
Simplified calculations for radiation reaction forces
The Lorentz-Dirac equation of motion for the electron is derived by a new method which makes tedious power series expansions unnecessary. Copyright © 1975 American Institute of Physics.
Ideas of four-fermion operators in hadron physics
Four-fermion operators have been utilized in the past to link the quarkexchange processes in the interaction of hadrons with the effective mesonexchange amplitudes. In this paper, we apply the similar idea of Fierz ...
Swirling granular solidlike clusters
Experiments and three-dimensional numerical simulations are presented to elucidate the dynamics of granular material in a cylindrical dish driven by a horizontal, periodic motion. The following phenomena are obtained both ...
