To explore the possibility that an inflationary universe can be created out of a stable particle in the laboratory, we consider the classical and quantum dynamics of a magnetic monopole in the thin-shell approximation. Classically there are three types of solutions: stable, collapsing and inflating monopoles. We argue that the transition from a stable(More)
Antimicrobial susceptibilities of 23 strains of Desulfovibrio spp. were tested by Etest. Generally, Desulfovibrio spp. were highly susceptible to sulbactam-ampicillin, meropenem, clindamycin, metronidazole, and chloramphenicol: MIC(90)s of 6, 4, 0.19, 0.25, and 8 microg/ml, respectively. In addition, these strains generally showed high MICs to piperacillin(More)
Recent measurements of the luminosity distance DL(z) using Type Ia supernovae [1–3] suggest that accurate DL(z) may be obtained in near future. Especially SNAP [4] will give us the luminosity distance of ∼2000 Type Ia supernovae with an accuracy of a few % up to z ∼ 1.7 every year. On the other hand from the observation of the first Doppler peak of the(More)
Time evolution of a black hole lattice toy model universe is simulated. The vacuum Einstein equations in a cubic box with a black hole at the origin are numerically solved with periodic boundary conditions on all pairs of faces opposite to each other. Defining effective scale factors by using the area of a surface and the length of an edge of the cubic box,(More)
We numerically study the dynamics of an imploding hollow cylinder composed of dust. Since there is no cylindrical black hole in 4-dimensional spacetime with physically reasonable energy conditions, a collapsed dust cylinder involves a naked singularity accompanied by its causal future, or a fatal singularity which terminates the history of the whole(More)
