We study a holographic gauge theory dual to the D3/D5 intersection. We consider a pure gauge B-field flux through the internal two-sphere wrapped by the probe D5-brane, which corresponds to a non-commutative configuration of adjoint scalars. There is a domain wall separating the theory into regions with different ranks of the adjoint group. At zero...

We consider extension of some established techniques of study of tensor fields on Lorentzian manifolds of arbitrary dimension to non-Abelian gauge covariant fields. These are then applied to study of gauge fields with vanishing scalar curvature invariants and universal Yang-Mills fields, for which all possible higher-order corrections to the Yang-M...

We investigate whether small perturbations can cause relaxation to quantum equilibrium over very long timescales. We consider in particular a two-dimensional harmonic oscillator, which can serve as a model of a field mode on expanding space. We assume an initial wave function with small perturbations to the ground state. We present evidence that th...

We correct a statement in our original paper and add anomaly-free charge assignments for SMνR with 7 ≤ Qmax ≤ 10.

Although Cosmic Microwave Background and Large Scale Structure probe the largest scales of our universe with ever increasing precision, our knowledge about the smaller scales is still very limited other than the bounds on Primordial Black Holes. We show that the statistical properties of the small scale quantum fluctuations can be probed via the st...

Abstract We present analytical formulas for the vacuum-polarization Uehling potential in the case where the finite size of the nucleus is modeled by a Fermi charge distribution. Using a Sommerfeld-type development, the potential is expressed in terms of multiple derivatives of a particular integral. The latter and its derivatives can be evaluated e...

Sharp-momentum transition matrix elements for scattering from a short-range Gaussian potential are computed using a real-time path integral. The computation is based on a numerical implementation of a new interpretation of the path integral as the expectation of a potential functional with respect to a complex probability distribution on cylinder s...

Bekenstein’s conjectured entropy bound for a system of linear size R and energy E, namely S ≤ 2πER, has counterexamples for many of the ways in which the “system,” R, E, and S may be defined. One consistent set of definitions for these quantities in flat Minkowski spacetime is that S is the total von Neumann entropy and E is the expectation value o...
