Using first-principles calculations, we study the microscopic origin of ferroelectricity (FE) induced by magnetic order in the orthorhombic HoMnO3. We obtain the largest ferroelectric polarization observed in the whole class of improper magnetic ferroelectrics to date. We find that the two proposed mechanisms for FE in multiferroics, lattice and electronic(More)
New results are presented concerning binary correcting codes, such as deletion-correcting codes, transposition-correction codes, and codes for the Z-channel. These codes are important due to the possibility of packet loss and corruption on internet transmissions. It is known that the problem of finding the largest correcting codes can be reduced to a(More)
We show that the symmetry of the spin zigzag chain E phase of the orthorhombic perovskite manganites and nickelates allows for the existence of a finite ferroelectric polarization. The proposed microscopic mechanism is independent of spin-orbit coupling. We predict that the polarization induced by the E-type magnetic order can potentially be enhanced by up(More)
A class of materials known as "ferroelectric metals" was discussed theoretically by Anderson and Blount in 1965 [Phys. Rev. Lett. 14, 217 (1965)]], but to date no examples of this class of materials have been reported. Here we present measurements of the elastic moduli of Cd2Re2O7 through the 200 K cubic-to-tetragonal phase transition. A Landau analysis of(More)
Some of the fundamental problems in coding theory can be formulated as extremal graph problems. Finding estimates of the size of correcting codes is important from both theoretical and practical perspectives. We solve the problem of finding the largest correcting codes using previously developed algorithms for optimization problems in graphs. We report new(More)
We have measured the polarized Raman scattering spectra of Cd2Re2O7, the first superconducting pyrochlore, as a function of temperature. For temperatures below the cubic-to-tetragonal structural phase transition (SPT) at 200 K, a peak with B1 symmetry develops at zero frequency with divergent intensity. We identify this peak as the first observation of the(More)
The paper describes a first supercomputer cluster project in Ukraine, its hardware, software and characteristics. The paper shows the performance results received on systems that were built. There are also shortly described software packages made by cluster users that have already made a return of investments into a cluster project.
