We consider the problem of constructing upper bounds for the expectation of the norm of a vector uniformly distributed on the Euclidean unit sphere.

This chapter is build from three 1.5 hours lectures given in Udine in april 2018 on various aspects of Earth's core dynamics. The chapter starts with a short historical note on the discovery of Earth's magnetic field and core (section 1). We then turn to an introduction of magnetohydrodynamics (section 2), introducing and discussing the induction e...

In this paper, we give novel certificates for triangular equivalence and rank profiles. These certificates enable somebody to verify the row or column rank profiles or the whole rank profile matrix faster than recomputing them, with a negligible overall overhead. We first provide quadratic time and space non-interactive certificates saving the loga...

We report the electrical transport of thin vertically-stacked Josephson tunnel junctions. The devices were fabricated using 16 nm thick GdBa2Cu3O7-δ electrodes and 1-4 nm SrTiO3 as an insulating barrier. The results show Josephson coupling for junctions with SrTiO3 barriers of 1 and 2 nm. Subtracting the residual current in the Fraunhofer patterns,...

Recent work by Sromovsky et al. (2017, Icarus 291, 232-244) suggested that all red colour in Jupiter's atmosphere could be explained by a single colour-carrying compound, a so-called 'universal chromophore'. We tested this hypothesis on ground-based spectroscopic observations in the visible and near-infrared (480-930 nm) from the VLT/MUSE instrumen...

Given an inverse semigroup $S$ endowed with a partial action on a topological space $X$, we construct a groupoid of germs $S\ltimes X$ in a manner similar to Exel's groupoid of germs, and similarly a partial action of $S$ on an algebra $A$ induces a crossed product $A\rtimes S$. We then prove, in the setting of partial actions, that if $X$ is local...

We have investigated the superconducting state of HfIrSi using magnetization, specific heat, muon spin rotation and relaxation ([Formula: see text]SR) measurements. Superconductivity was observed at [Formula: see text] K in both specific heat and magnetization measurements. From an analysis of the transverse-field [Formula: see text]SR data, it is ...

We study the magnetic and thermodynamic properties of a spin-$1/2$ Ising system containing three layers, each of which is composed exclusively of one out of two possible types of atoms, \textbf{A} or \textbf{B}. The \textbf{A-A} and \textbf{B-B} bonds are ferromagnetic while the \textbf{A-B} bonds are antiferromagnetic. The study is performed throu...

For the one-dimensional Ising chain with spin-$1/2$ and exchange couple $J$ in a steady transverse field(TF), an analytical theory has well been developed in terms of some topological order parameters such as Berry phase(BP). For a TF Ising chain, the nonzero BP which depends on the exchange couple and the field strength characterizes the correspon...
