An important body of quantitative linguistics is constituted by a series of statistical laws about language usage. Despite the importance of these linguistic laws, some of them are poorly formulated, and, more importantly, there is no unified framework that encompasses all them. This paper presents a new perspective to establish a connection betwee...

It was pointed out long ago by Vainshtein [Phys. Lett. 39B, 393 (1972)] that the weak-field perturbation expansion of generic theories (of the nonlinear Fierz-Pauli type) involving massive spin-2 excitations breaks down below a certain distance around a material source ("Vainshtein radius"), scaling as some inverse power of the spin-2 mass $m_2$, i...

We study the q-voter model with flexibility, which allows for describing a broad spectrum of independence from zealots, inflexibility, or stubbornness through noisy voters to self-anticonformity. Analyzing the model within the pair approximation allows us to derive the analytical formula for the critical point, below which an ordered (agreement) ph...

We prove that the scaling limits of spin fluctuations in four-dimensional Ising-type models with nearest-neighbor ferromagnetic interaction at or near the critical point are Gaussian. A similar statement is proven for the $\lambda \phi^4$ fields over $\mathbb{R}^4$ with a lattice ultraviolet cutoff, in the limit of infinite volume and vanishing lat...

We study classical and quantum (at large-$N$) field equations of bosonic tensor models with quartic interactions and $O(N)^3$ symmetry. Among various possible patterns of spontaneous symmetry breaking we highlight an $SO(3)$ invariant solution, with the tensor field expressed in terms of the Wigner $3jm$ symbol. We argue that such solution has a sp...

Processing acid whey is still a challenge for the dairy industry due to its high lactic acid and mineral contents. Their removal processes represent a high investment and running cost in addition to significant production of polluting effluents. A previous study showed that the use of electrodialysis with the application of pulsed electric fields (...

A side effect of using modified polycarboxylates to liquefy a concrete mix is additional pores in the concrete. They change the air void system in hardened concretes, and can be used to evaluate the freeze&ndash / thaw resistance of concretes. The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of the abovementioned quantitative and qualitative pa...

Using lattice configurations for quantum chromodynamics (QCD) generated with three domain-wall fermions at a physical pion mass, we obtain a parameter-free prediction of QCD's renormalisation-group-invariant process-independent effective charge, $\hat\alpha(k^2)$. Owing to the dynamical breaking of scale invariance, evident in the emergence of a gl...

We report on a two-flavor lattice QCD estimate of the $B_s$ and $B^*_s$ leptonic decays parameterized by the decay constants $f_{B_s}$ and $f_{B^*_s}$. In addition to their relevance for phenomenology, their extraction has allowed us to investigate whether the "step scaling in mass" strategy is suitable with Wlilson-Clover fermions to smoothly extr...

Over the last years, radio detection has matured to become a competitive method for the detection of air showers. Arrays of thousands of antennas are now envisioned for the detection of cosmic rays of ultra high energy or neutrinos of astrophysical origin. The data exploitation of such detectors requires to run massive air-shower simulations to eva...
