We develop the mathematical theory of separable and unitary $n$-categories based on Gaiotto and Johnson-Freyd's theory of condensation completion. We use it to study the categories of topological orders by including gapless quantum phases and defects. In particular, we show that all the topological features of a potentially gapless quantum phase ca...

"exoplanet" is a toolkit for probabilistic modeling of astronomical time series data, with a focus on observations of exoplanets, using PyMC3 (Salvatier et al., 2016). PyMC3 is a flexible and high-performance model building language and inference engine that scales well to problems with a large number of parameters. "exoplanet" extends PyMC3's mode...

The Metis coronagraph is one of the remote sensing instruments hosted on board the ESA/NASA Solar Orbiter mission. Metis is devoted to carry out the first simultaneous imaging of the solar corona in both visible light (VL) and ultraviolet (UV). High-energy particles penetrate spacecraft materials and may limit the performance of on-board instrument...

We demonstrate loading of SrF molecules into an optical dipole trap (ODT) via in-trap $\Lambda$-cooling. We find that this cooling can be optimized by a proper choice of relative ODT and $\Lambda$ beam polarizations. In this optimized configuration, we observe molecules with temperatures as low as 14(1) $\mu$K in traps with depths up to 570 $\mu$K....

Neuroevolutionary algorithms, automatic searches of neural network structures by means of evolutionary techniques, are computationally costly procedures. In spite of this, due to the great performance provided by the architectures which are found, these methods are widely applied. The final outcome of neuroevolutionary processes is the best structu...

Coffee consumption is believed to have chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic effects and to contribute to preventing thedevelopment and progression of cancer. However, there is still controversy around these claims. As indicated in our previousworks, diet can influence the risk of breast cancer. Intake of coffee is hypothesized to reduce this risk, ...

The BaBar collaboration has measured the ratio $R_{\tau\mu}^{\Upsilon(3S)}=\mathcal{B}(\Upsilon(3S)\rightarrow\tau^+\tau^-)/\mathcal{B}(\Upsilon(3S)\rightarrow\mu^+\mu^-)$ with a high level of precision. This measurement utilized a 28 fb$^{-1}$ dataset collected at a center-of-mass energy of 10.355 GeV. The measured ratio, $R_{\tau\mu}^{\Upsilon(3S...

The multicolor Ramsey number problem asks, for each pair of natural numbers $\ell$ and $t$, for the largest $\ell$-coloring of a complete graph with no monochromatic clique of size $t$. Recent work of Conlon-Ferber and Wigderson have improved the longstanding lower bound for this problem. We make a further improvement by replacing an explicit graph...

Dielectric spheres of various size may sustain electromagnetic whispering-gallery modes resonating at optical frequencies with very narrow linewidths. Arbitrary small deviations from the spherical shape typically shift and broaden such resonances. Our goal is to determine these shifted and broadened resonances. A boundary-condition perturbation the...

Commensurating HNN-extensions of $\mathbb{Z}^n$, or Leary-Minasyan groups, have recently been studied by I. J. Leary and A. Minasyan. These groups are higher-dimensional analogues of Baumslag-Solitar groups. Among other results, Leary-Minasyan groups were shown to serve as first known examples of CAT(0) groups that are not biautomatic. It is well-k...
