For spherically symmetric spacetimes, it is shown that the quasilocal energy has the correct Newtonian limit, and includes a negative contribution due to gravitational binding.Expand

The particles of dust introduce into space a privileged system of coordinates that allows the supermomentum constraint to be solved explicitly and yields a formally conserved inner product that can be written in terms of either the instantaneous state functionals or the solutions of constraints.Expand

The approximate {ital in}{minus}{ital medium} scaling law is established, which has a highly nontrivial implication for nuclear processes at and above nuclear-matter density.Expand

It is shown that the classical equation reduces to an easily solved ordinary differential equation for certain multiparticle threshold amplitudes and compute these amplitudes.Expand

The thermodynamic properties of black holes in (3+1)- and (2+1-dimensional Einstein gravity with a negative cosmological constant are investigated and it is shown that the chemical potential conjugate to angular momentum is equal to the proper angular velocity of the black hole with respect to observers who are at rest in the stationary time slices.Expand

In-plane magneto-optical Kerr-effect hysteresis loops and Brillouin light-scattering measurements show that the thinnest epitaxial hcp Co film (50 Angstrom) has a dominant fourfold anisotropy with easy axes along the in-plane [100] directions and that a uniaxial an isotropy becomes dominant with increasing film thickness.Expand

It is found that the regions of initial-condition state space corresponding to the two exit modes are separated by a boundary that has both fractal and smooth (nonfractal) regions, for one example, and by a fractal boundary for the other example.Expand

A general form of the first law of thermodynamics for stationary black holes is derived and the density of states is expressed as a real-time functional integral and then used to deduce Feynman's imaginary- time functional integral for the canonical partition function.Expand
