We discuss the matching conditions and renormalization group evolution of non-relativistic QCD. A variant of the conventional MS scheme is proposed in which a subtraction velocity Î½ is used ratherâ€¦ (More)

We derive a long wavelength effective point particle description of four-dimensional Schwarzschild black holes. In this effective theory, absorptive effects are incorporated by introducing degrees ofâ€¦ (More)

S 1. This system is analyzed with the aid of an effective field theory (EFT) formalism in which the structure of the black hole is encoded in the coefficients of operators in an effective worldlineâ€¦ (More)

The effective Lagrangian and power counting rules for non-relativistic gauge theories are derived via a systematic expansion in the large c limit. It is shown that the 1/c expansion leads to anâ€¦ (More)

We comment on several points concerning unparticles which have been overlooked in the literature. One regards Mackâ€™s unitarity constraint lower bounds on CFT operator dimensions, e.g., dV â‰¥ 3 forâ€¦ (More)

We use fragmenting jet functions (FJFs) in the context of quarkonia to study the production channels predicted by NRQCD (3S (1) 1 , 3S (8) 1 , 1S (8) 0 , 3P (8) J ). We choose a set of FJFs that giveâ€¦ (More)

We show that there exists a correspondence between four dimensional gauge theories with simple groups and higher dimensional gauge theories at large N . As an example, we show that a four dimensionalâ€¦ (More)

Using effective field theory techniques we calculate the source multipole moments needed to obtain the spin contributions to the power radiated in gravitational waves from inspiralling compactâ€¦ (More)

We investigate the role of quantum fluctuations in the system composed of two branes bounding a region of AdS. It is shown that the modulus effective potential generated by quantum fluctuations ofâ€¦ (More)
