Abstract Fast quench detection is a key requirement for the successful implementation of superconducting magnet technology. In high temperature superconductor (HTS) magnets, this issue is especially challenging due to the low quench propagation velocity, and presently represents one of the main factors limiting their application. A new detection te...

A foundation of quantum mechanics based on the concepts of focusing and symmetry is proposed. Focusing is connected to c-variables—inaccessible conceptually derived variables; several examples of such variables are given. The focus is then on a maximal accessible parameter, a function of the common c-variable. Symmetry is introduced via a group act...

We derive semiclassical transport equations for a trapped atomic Fermi gas in the BCS phase at temperatures between zero and the superfluid transition temperature. These equations interpolate between the two well-known limiting cases of superfluid hydrodynamics at zero temperature and the Vlasov equation at the critical one. The linearized version ...

For every physical model defined on a generic graph or factor graph, the Bethe $M$-layer construction allows building a different model for which the Bethe approximation is exact in the large $M$ limit and it coincides with the original model for $M=1$. The $1/M$ perturbative series is then expressed by a diagrammatic loop expansion in terms of so-...

We report upon the numerical computation of the Euler characteristic \chi (a topologic invariant) of the equipotential hypersurfaces \Sigma_v of the configuration space of the two-dimensional lattice $\phi^4$ model. The pattern \chi(\Sigma_v) vs. v (potential energy) reveals that a major topology change in the family {\Sigma_v}_{v\in R} is at the o...

A discrete-time Quantum Walk (QW) is essentially an operator driving the evolution of a single particle on the lattice, through local unitaries. Some QWs admit a continuum limit, leading to well-known physics partial differential equations, such as the Dirac equation. We show that these simulation results need not rely on the grid: the Dirac equati...

Vinen’s vibrating wire experiment detected quantized vortices in superfluid 4He, with the anticipated circulation quantum h/m. In addition to this main result, Vinen used his data to propose other properties and behaviors of vortices, which are revisited here. Subsequent work confirmed that non-quantized values occur when vortices cover only part o...

In this paper we present both the classical and quantum periodic-orbits of a neutral spinning particle constrained in two-dimensional central-potentials with a cylindrically symmetric electric-field in addition, which leads to an effective non-Abelian gauge field generated by the spin-orbit coupling. Coherent superposition of orbital angular-eigenf...

High-temperature superconducting REBa{2} Cu{3}O{7-x} (rebco) conductors have the potential to generate a high magnetic field over a broad temperature range. The corresponding accelerator magnet technology, still in its infancy, can be attractive for future energy-frontier particle colliders such as a multi-TeV muon collider. To help develop the tec...

By the end of October 2022, the US HL-LHC Accelerator Upgrade Project (AUP) had completed fabrication of ten MQXFA magnets and tested eight of them. The MQXFA magnets are the low-beta quadrupole magnets to be used in the Q1 and Q3 Inner Triplet elements of the High Luminosity LHC. This AUP effort is shared by BNL, Fermilab, and LBNL, with strand ve...
