    • Analysis of the dispersion function for anisotropic longitudinal plasma waves 

      Arthur, M. D.; Bowden, Robert L.; Zweifel, P. F. (AIP Publishing, 1979-10)
      An analysis of the zeros of the dispersion function for longitudinal plasma waves is made. In particular, the plasma equilibriumdistribution function is assumed to have two relative maxima and is not necessarily an even ...
    • Analytic approximation to the ground-state energy of the Anderson model 

      Mancini, Jay D.; Massano, William J.; Potter, Charles D.; Bowen, Samuel P. (American Physical Society, 1988-09)
      Using the nonperturbative Lanczos recursion scheme an analytic approximation to the ground-state energy of the single-impurity Anderson model is obtained. Calculations are carried out to a 5x5 matrix truncation. Comparisons ...

    • Background independent quantum mechanics and gravity 

      Minic, D.; Tze, C. H. (American Physical Society, 2003-09-15)
