We study the probability distribution of the pseudo-critical temperature in a mean-field and in a short-range spin-glass model: the Sherrington-Kirkpatrick (SK) and the Edwards-Anderson (EA) model. In both cases, we put in evidence the underlying connection between the fluctuations of the pseudo-critical point and and the Extreme Value Statistics of random variables. For the SK model, both with Gaussian and binary couplings, the distribution of the pseudo-critical temperature is found to be the...

Five ordering algorithms for the nonserial dynamic programming algorithm for solving sparse discrete optimization problems are compared in this paper. The benchmarking reveals that the ordering of the variables has a significant impact on the run-time of these algorithms. In addition, it is shown that different orderings are most effective for different classes of problems. Finally, it is shown that, amongst the algorithms considered here, heuristics based on maximum cardinality search and...

Let $\mathscr{O}_K$ be a 2-adic discrete valuation ring with perfect residue field $k$. We classify $p$-divisible groups and $p$-power order finite flat group schemes over $\mathscr{O}_K$ in terms of certain Frobenius module over $\mathfrak{S}:=W(k)[[u]]$. We also show the compatibility with crystalline Dieudonn\'e theory and associated Galois representations. Our approach differs from Lau's generalization of display theory, and we additionally obtain the the compatibility with associated...

We consider the cold bosonic ensemble trapped by a helical interference pattern in the optical \textit{loop} scheme. This rotating helical potential is produced by the two slightly detuned counter propagating Laguerre-Gaussian laser beams with counter directed orbital angular momenta $\pm \ell\hbar $. The detuning $\delta \omega$ may occur due to rotational Doppler effect. The superfluid hydrodynamics is analysed for the large number of trapped atoms in Thomas-Fermi approximation. For the...

We analyze the effect of typical, unknown perturbations on the 2D toric code when acting as a quantum memory, incorporating the effects of error correction on read-out. By transforming the system into a 1D transverse Ising model undergoing an instantaneous quench, and making extensive use of Lieb-Robinson bounds, we prove that for a large class of perturbations, the survival time of stored information grows at least logarithmically with the system size. A uniform magnetic field saturates this...

The calculation, by L.\ Euler, of the values at positive even integers of the Riemann zeta function, in terms of powers of $\pi$ and rational numbers, was a watershed event in the history of number theory and classical analysis. Since then many important analogs involving $L$-values and periods have been obtained. In analysis in finite characteristic, a version of Euler's result was given by L.\ Carlitz \cite{ca2} in the 1930's which involved the period of a rank 1 Drinfeld module (the Carlitz...

A PNJL model is built, in which the Polyakov-loop potential is explicitly Z$_{N_c}$-symmetric in order to mimic a Yang-Mills theory with gauge group SU($N_c$). The physically expected large-$N_c$ and large-$T$ behaviours of the thermodynamic observables computed from the Polyakov-loop potential are used to constrain its free parameters. The effective potential is eventually U(1)-symmetric when $N_c$ is infinite. Light quark flavours are added by using a Nambu-Jona-Lasinio (NJL) model coupled to...

We study nonparametric estimation of the diffusion coefficient from discrete data, when the observations are blurred by additional noise.

This paper addresses the nonparametric estimation of the path of the (possibly stochastic) diffusion coefficient in a relatively general setting....

We investigate the collapse and revival of first-order coherence in deep optical lattices when long-range interactions are turned on, and find that the first few revival peaks are strongly attenuated already for moderate values of the nearest-neighbor interaction coupling. It is shown that the conventionally employed Gutzwiller wavefunction, with only onsite-number dependence of the variational amplitudes, leads to incorrect predictions for the collapse and revival oscillations.

The weak equivalence principle of gravity is examined at the quantum level in two ways. First, the position detection probabilities of particles described by a non-Gaussian wave-packet projected upwards against gravity around the classical turning point and also around the point of initial projection are calculated. These probabilities exhibit mass-dependence at both these points, thereby reflecting the quantum violation of the weak equivalence principle. Secondly, the mean arrival time of...

The concept of transformation optics is extended to nonlinear electrodynamics. It is shown that transformation optics favors implicit constitutive relations in terms of energy densities D.E and B.H rather than E^2 and H^2. The Kerr nonlinearity is studied in detail and the transformation optics based engineering of self-interaction effects is discussed. As a specific example we introduce transformation optics applied on a self-focusing field configuration.

Atmospheres are a form of condensed matter, and many interesting phenomena of condensed matter systems are realized by them. The essential physics of the general circulation is illustrated with idealized 2-layer and 1-layer models of the atmosphere. Equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics are used to directly ascertain the statistics of these models.

Pulsar electrodynamics has been built up by taking ingredients from two models, the vacuum-dipole model, which ignores the magnetosphere but includes the inductive electric field due to the obliquely rotating magnetic dipole, and the corotating-magnetosphere model, which neglects the vacuum inductive electric field and assumes a corotating magnetosphere.

The rho-rho interaction in isospin I=0, spin S=2 is strongly attractive, and so are the N-rho, Delta-rho interactions. This leads to bound states of both rho-rho-N and rho-rho-Delta. We find peaks of the modulus squared of the scattering matrix around 2227 MeV for rho-rho-N, and 2372 MeV for rho-rho-Delta. Yet, the strength of the peak for the...

We show that when supersymmetry is broken at the TeV scale by strong dynamics, the Higgs sector of the MSSM can be drastically modified. This arises from possible sizeable mixings of the Higgs with the resonances of the strong sector. In particular the mass of the lightest Higgs boson can be significantly above the MSSM bound (~130 GeV). Furthermore only one Higgs doublet is strictly necessary, because the Yukawa couplings can have a very different structure compared to the MSSM. Using the...

The Arnold diffusion constitutes a dynamical phenomenon which may occur in the phase space of a non-integrable Hamiltonian system whenever the number of the system degrees of freedom is $M \geq 3$. The diffusion is mediated by a web-like structure of resonance channels, which penetrates the phase space and allows the system to explore the whole energy shell.

This is a paper about private data analysis, in which a trusted curator holding a confidential database responds to real vector-valued queries. A common approach to ensuring privacy for the database elements is to add appropriately generated random noise to the answers, releasing only these {\em noisy} responses.

We investigate the radial behavior of galactic rotation curves by a Fourth Order Gravity adding also the Dark Matter component. The Fourth Order Gravity is a Lagrangian containing the Ricci scalar, the Ricci and Riemann tensor, but the rotation curves are depending only on two free parameters. A systematic analysis of rotation curves, in the Newtonian Limit of theory, induced by all galactic sub-structures of ordinary matter is shown. This analysis is presented for Fourth Order Gravity with and...

One of the unsolved problems in the characterization of the optimal entanglement witnesses is the existence of optimal witnesses acting on bipartite Hilbert spaces H_{m,n}=C^m\otimes C^n such that the product vectors obeying =0 do not span H_{m,n}. So far, the only known examples of such witnesses were found among indecomposable witnesses, one of them being the witness corresponding to the Choi map. However, it remains an open question whether decomposable witnesses exist without the property...

No appreciable alteration in shape or energy position of this edge was observed with Co substitution. This result provides experimental support to previous ab initio calculations in which the extra Co electron is concentrated at the substitute site and do not change the electronic occupation of the Fe ions.

We classify, up to local unitary equivalence, local unitary stabilizer Lie algebras for symmetric mixed states into six classes. These include the stabilizer types of the Werner states, the GHZ state and its generalizations, and Dicke states. For all but the zero algebra, we classify entanglement types (local unitary equivalence classes) of symmetric mixed states that have those stabilizers. We make use of the identification of symmetric density matrices with polynomials in three variables with...

Kappa-Minkowski space-time is an example of noncommutative space-time with potentially interesting phenomenological consequences. However, the construction of field theories on this space, although operationally well-defined, is plagued with ambiguities. A part of ambiguities can be resolved by clarifying the geometrical picture of gauge transformations on the kappa-Minkowski space-time. To this end we use the twist approach to construct the noncommutative U(1) gauge theory coupled to fermions....

The quantum state of an electron in a strong laser field is altered if the interaction of the electron with its own electromagnetic field is taken into account. Starting from the Schwinger-Dirac equation, we determine the states of an electron in a plane-wave field with inclusion, at leading order, of its electromagnetic self-interaction. On the one hand, the electron states show a pure "quantum" contribution to the electron quasi-momentum, conceptually different from the conventional...

To achieve this goal we study the reduction modulo $p$ of foliations, establish a criterium for uniruledness of projective manifolds, and investigate the deformation of free morphisms along foliations. This paper also contains new information about the structure of codimension one foliations on $\P^n$ of degree smaller than or equal to $2n-3$.

We explore the role of a holographic Wilsonian cut-off in simple probe brane models with chiral symmetry breaking/restoration phase transitions. The Wilsonian cut-off allows us to define supergravity solutions for off-shell configurations and hence to define a potential for the chiral condensate. We pay particular attention to the need for configurations whose action we are comparing to have the same IR and UV boundary conditions. We exhibit new first and second order phase transitions with...

We consider the effect of the coupled variations of fundamental constants on the nucleon magnetic moment. The nucleon g-factor enters into the interpretation of the measurements of variations in the fine-structure constant, alpha, in both the laboratory (through atomic clock measurements) and in astrophysical systems (e.g. through measurements of the 21 cm transitions). A null result can be translated into a limit on the variation of a set of fundamental constants, that is usually reduced to...
