An analysis of nonoblique corrections to the Zb¯b vertex
(1994)We present a model–independent analysis of the Zb¯b vertex, with the aim of constraining contributions of new physics to the left and right–handed couplings of the b. We find that the left–handed coupling of the b is quite ... 
Analysis of optical response of long period fiber gratings to nmthick thinfilm coatings
(Optical Society of America, 20050401)We have theoretically and experimentally demonstrated that the resonant wavelength of long period fiber gratings (LPG) can be shifted by a large magnitude by coating with only a nmthickthinfilm that has a refractive index ... 
An analysis of Precision Electroweak Measurements: Summer 98 Update
We update our analysis of precision electroweak measurements using the latest data announced at Moriond, March 1998. Possible oblique corrections from new physics are parametrized using the STU formalism of Ref.[1], and ... 
Analysis of the dispersion function for anisotropic longitudinal plasma waves
(AIP Publishing, 197910)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 groundstate energy of the Anderson model
(American Physical Society, 198809)Using the nonperturbative Lanczos recursion scheme an analytic approximation to the groundstate energy of the singleimpurity Anderson model is obtained. Calculations are carried out to a 5x5 matrix truncation. Comparisons ... 
Anapole dark matter quantum mechanics
(20200123)The dynamics of an anapole seen as dark matter at low energies is studied by solving the SchrodingerPauli equation in a potential involving the Dirac delta and its derivatives in three dimensions. This is an interesting ... 
Anomalous nucleation far from equilibrium
(American Physical Society, 20050325)We present precision Monte Carlo data and analytic arguments for an asymmetric exclusion process, involving two species of particles driven in opposite directions on a 2xL lattice. To resolve a stark discrepancy between ... 
Antiferromagnetic coupling of the singlemolecule magnet Mn12 to a ferromagnetic substrate
(American Physical Society, 20110228)We investigate magnetic coupling between a monolayer of prototype singlemolecule magnets Mn12 and a ferromagnetic Ni(111) substrate through S, using densityfunctional theory (DFT) and a DFT+U method. Our DFT and DFT+U ... 
The Application of a Nanomaterial Optical Fiber Biosensor Assay for Identification of Brucella Nomenspecies
(MDPI, 20190521)Bacteria in the genus Brucella are the cause of brucellosis in humans and many domestic and wild animals. A rapid and culturefree detection assay to detect Brucella in clinical samples would be highly valuable. ... 
Application of the connectedmoment expansion to singleimpurity Anderson Hamiltonians
(American Physical Society, 198904)We use the connectedmoment expansion, recently developed by Cioslowski [Phys. Rev. Lett. 58, 83 (1987)], to investigate the groundstate energy of the singleimpurity Anderson model. It is found that the moment expansion ... 
Application of the SmallAngle Approximation to Ocean Water Types
(Optical Society of America, 2001)The smallangle approximation to the radiative transport equation is applied to particle suspensions that emulate ocean water. A particle size distribution is constructed from polystyrene and glass spheres with the best ...

Applied Antineutrino Physics 2015  Conference Summary
This is a brief summary of the 11th Applied Antineutrino Physics 2015 workshop held at the Virginia Tech Arlington Research Facility from December 78, 2015. 
The Astropy Project: Building an Openscience Project and Status of the v2.0 Core Package
(201809)The Astropy Project supports and fosters the development of opensource and openly developed Python packages that provide commonly needed functionality to the astronomical community. A key element of the Astropy Project ... 
Bbranes and supersymmetric quivers in 2d
(Springer, 20180208)We study 2d N = (0, 2) supersymmetric quiver gauge theories that describe the lowenergy dynamics of D1branes at CalabiYau fourfold (CY4) singularities. On general grounds, the holomorphic sector of these theories  ... 
Background independent quantum mechanics and gravity
(American Physical Society, 20030915)We argue that the demand of background independence in a quantum theory of gravity calls for an extension of standard geometric quantum mechanics. We discuss a possible kinematical and dynamical generalization of the latter ... 
BAL outflow contribution to AGN feedback: frequency of S IV outflows in the SDSS
(IOP Publishing Ltd., 201205)We present a study of broad absorption line (BAL) quasar outflows that show S IV lambda 1063 and S IV* lambda 1073 troughs. The fractional abundances of S IV and C IV peak at similar value of the ionization parameter, ... 
BAL phosphorus abundance and evidence for immense ionic column densities in quasar outflows: vlt/xshooter observations of quasar SDSS J1512+1119
(IOP Publishing Ltd., 201210)We present spectroscopic analysis of the broad absorption line (BAL) outflow in quasar SDSS J1512+1119. In particular, we focus our attention on a kinematic component in which we identify P V and S IV/S IV* absorption ... 
Bell's Inequalities, Superquantum Correlations, and String Theory
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2011)We offer an interpretation of superquantum correlations in terms of a “doubly” quantum theory.We argue that string theory, viewed as a quantum theory with two deformation parameters, the string tension α', and the string ...
