Superfluid bosons and flux liquids: disorder, thermal fluctuations, and finite-size effects
The influence of different types of disorder (both uncorrelated and correlated) on the superfluid properties of a weakly interacting or dilute Bose gas, as well as on the corresponding quantities for flux line liquids in ...
Commutative rings with homomorphic power functions
A (commutative) ring R (with identity) is called m-linear (for an integer m≥2) if (a+b)m=am+bm for all a and b in R. The m-linear reduced rings are characterized, with special attention to the finite case. A structure ...
Topologies between compact and uniform convergence on function spaces
This paper studies two topologies on the set of all continuous real-valued functionson a Tychonoff space which lie between the topologies of compact convergence and uniformconvergence.
Raman-scattering and optical studies of argon-etched GaAs surfaces
(American Physical Society, 1991-04)
We have studied the structual damage in low-energy argon-ion-bombarded (ion-etched) GaAs using Raman scattering and ultraviolet reflectivity. When combined with post-bombardment sequential chemical etching, the Raman results ...
Interactions and pinning energies in the Bose glass phase of vortices in superconductors
We study the ground state and low energy excitations of vortices pinned to columnar defects in superconductors, taking into account the long–range interaction between the fluxons. We consider the “underfilled” situation ...
Stability of zircon u-pb systematics in a greenschist-grade mylonite - an example from the rockfish valley fault zone, central Virginia, USA
(University of Chicago Press, 1992-09)
The mid-Paleozoic, greenschist-grade Rockfish Valley Fault Zone (RVFZ) of central Virginia cuts the Grenville-aged Pedlar River Charnockite Suite (PRCS) and contains zircons that underwent brittle failure during ductile ...
