The structure of compact groups
The theme of this book is the Structure Theory of compact groups. It contains a completely selfcontained introduction to linear Lie groups and a substantial body of material on compact Lie groups.Expand

Wormholes, time machines, and the weak energy condition.
It is argued that, if the laws of physics permit an advanced civilization to create and maintain a wormhole in space for interstellar travel, then that wormhole can be converted into a time machineExpand

Spiral defect chaos in large aspect ratio Rayleigh-Bénard convection.
We report experiments on convection patterns in a cylindrical cell with a large aspect ratio. The fluid had a Prandtl number [sigma][approx]1. We observed a chaotic pattern consisting of manyExpand

Microwave determination of the quasiparticle scattering time in YBa2Cu3O6.95.
  • Bonn, Liang, +11 authors Berlinsky
  • Medicine, Physics
  • Physical review. B, Condensed matter
  • 1 May 1993
We report microwave surface resistance (Rs) measurements on two very-high-quality YBa2Cu3O6.95 crystals which exhibit extremely low residual loss at 1.2 K (2-6 μΩ at 2 GHz), a broad, reproducibleExpand

Cauchy problem in spacetimes with closed timelike curves.
The laws of physics might permit the existence, in the real Universe, of closed timelike curves (CTC’s). Macroscopic CTC’s might be a semiclassical consequence of Planck-scale, quantum gravitational,Expand

  • Physical review. A, Atomic, molecular, and…
  • 15 October 1992
We study the phenomenon of slip length using molecular dynamics and direct simulation Monte Carlo simulations of a dilute gas. Our work extends the range of Knudsen numbers that have been previouslyExpand

  • 24 January 1996
In a recent Letter (K.Halpern and K.Huang, Phys. Rev. Lett. 74 (1995) 3526), certain properties of the Local Potential Approximation (LPA) to the Wilson renormalization group were uncovered, whichExpand

  • Physical review. B, Condensed matter
  • 15 January 1996
We demonstrate that a recently developed approach for optimizing atomic structures is very effective for attacking the Thomson problem of finding the lowest-energy configuration of $N$ point chargesExpand

  • 10 November 1995
A supersymmetric extension of the U(1){times}U(1){prime}-Higgs bosonic superconducting cosmic string model is considered, where the action is constructed from scalar chiral and vector superfields.Expand

  • Materials Science, Medicine
  • Physical review. B, Condensed matter
  • 1 February 1994
We have performed simulations of coexisting liquid and solid phases of aluminum as an efficient way of mapping out the coexistence line. This technique is convenient, as it does not requireExpand
