Relating the cosmological constant and supersymmetry breaking in warped compactifications of IIB string theory
(American Physical Society, 2003-02-15)
It has been suggested that the observed value of the cosmological constant is related to the supersymmetry breaking scale M-susy through the formula Lambdasimilar toM(p)(4)(M-susy/M-p)(8). We point out that a similar ...
Background independent quantum mechanics and gravity
(American Physical Society, 2003-09-15)
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 ...
Transfer function approach to output specification in certain linear distributed parameter systems
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2003)
We carry out error estimation of a class of immersed finite element (IFE) methods for elliptic interface problems with both perfect and imperfect interface jump conditions. A key feature of these methods is that their ...
