We consider the nodal domains of Gaussian random waves in two dimensions. We present a method to calculate the distribution of the number of nodal domains and the average connectivity with the help of auxiliary Potts-spins. An analytical approach could be helpful to decide whether the pattern of nodal domains belongs to the universality class of(More)
We calculate correlation functions of the (signed) density of zeros of Gaussian distributed vector fields. We are able to express correlation functions of arbitrary order through the curvature tensor of a certain abstract Riemann Cartan or Riemannian manifold. As an application, we discuss one and two-point functions. The zeros of a two-dimensional Gaussian(More)
The magnetization process of the orthogonal-dimer antiferromagnet SrCu2(BO3)2 is investigated in high magnetic fields of up to 118 T. A 1/2 plateau is clearly observed in the field range 84 to 108 T in addition to 1/8, 1/4, and 1/3 plateaus at lower fields. Using a combination of state-of-the-art numerical simulations, the main features of the high-field(More)
