The number of so-called invisible states which need to be added to the q-state Potts model to transmute its phase transition from continuous to first order has attracted recent attention. In the q =… Expand

An analytical expression is received for the effective interaction potential of a fast charged particle with the ionic crystal CsCl near the direction of axis ⟨100⟩ as a function of the temperature… Expand

We consider a relativistic quantum heat engine that goes through a thermodynamical cycle consisting of stages involving laser-assisted cooling of electrons and the generation of X-ray radiation.… Expand

We propose a method for the detection of a dynamical Casimir effect. Assuming that the Casimir photons are being generated in an electromagnetic cavity with a vibrating wall (dynamical Casimir… Expand
