We use time-resolved x-ray diffraction and magneto-optical Kerr effect to study the laser-induced antiferromagnetic to ferromagnetic phase transition in FeRh. The structural response is given by the nucleation of independent ferromagnetic domains (τ(1)~30 ps). This is significantly faster than the magnetic response (τ(2)~60 ps) given by the subsequent(More)
Researchers in the Center for Magnetic Recording Research (CMRR) at the Jacobs School of Engineering have discovered that for a wide range of ferromagnetic materials the direction of magnetization can be completely controlled by polarized light without the need for magnetic fields, a finding that could significantly affect the data memory and storage(More)
In a vintage paper concerning Parsimonious games, a subset of constant sum homogeneous weighted majority games, Isbell introduced a twin relationship based on transposition properties of the incidence matrices upon minimal winning coalitions of such games. A careful investigation of such properties allowed the discovery of some results on twin games(More)
The paper concerns optimal mean-variance proportional reinsurance under group correlation. In order to solve the corresponding constrained quadratic optimization problem, we make large recourse both to the smart friendly technique originally proposed by B. de Finetti in his pioneering paper and to the well known Karush-Kuhn-Tucker conditions for constrained(More)
