The stability of the one-mode nonlinear solutions of the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam beta system is numerically investigated. No external perturbation is considered for the one-mode exact analytical solutions, the only perturbation being that introduced by computational errors in the numerical integration of motion equations. The threshold energy for the excitation of(More)
We present a study of the multiplicities, of the lateral distributions and of the ratio of the electromagnetic to the hadronic components in the air showers, generated by the collision in the atmosphere of an incoming high energy cosmic ray and mediated by the formation of a mini black hole, predicted in TeV scale gravity models with large extra dimensions.(More)
A NNLO analysis of certain logarithmic expansions, developed for precision studies of the evolution of the QCD parton distributions (pdf) at the large hadron collider, is presented. We elaborate on their relations to all the solutions of the DGLAP equations that have been hitherto obtained from Mellin space, to which are equivalent. Exact expansions,(More)
This is a PDF file of an unedited manuscript that has been accepted for publication. As a service to our customers we are providing this early version of the manuscript. The manuscript will undergo copyediting, typesetting, and review of the resulting proof before it is published in its final form. Please note that during the production process errors may(More)
We illustrate the implementation of a method based on the use of recursion relations in (Bjorken) x-space for the solution of the evolution equations of QCD for all the leading twist distributions. The algorithm has the advantage of being very fast. The implementation that we release is written in C and is performed to next-to-leading order in α s.(More)
We present next-to-leading order predictions for double transverse-spin asymmetries in Drell–Yan dilepton production initiated by proton–antiproton scattering. The kinematic region of the proposed PAX experiment at GSI: 30 s 200 GeV 2 and 2 M 7 GeV is examined. The Drell–Yan asymmetries turn out to be large, in the range 20 − 40%. We show that the double(More)
