On periodically driven AdS/CFT
A bstractWe use the AdS/CFT correspondence to study a thermally isolated conformal field theory in four dimensions which undergoes a repeated deformation by an external periodic time-dependent sourceExpand

Fractional and semi-local non-Abelian Chern-Simons vortices
Abstract In this paper we study fractional as well as semi-local Chern–Simons vortices in G = U ( 1 ) × SO ( 2 M ) and G = U ( 1 ) × USp ( 2 M ) theories. The master equations are solved numericallyExpand

Non-Abelian Chern–Simons vortices with generic gauge groups
Abstract We study non-Abelian Chern–Simon BPS-saturated vortices enjoying N = 2 supersymmetry in d = 2 + 1 dimensions, with generic gauge groups of the form U ( 1 ) × G ′ , with G ′ being a simpleExpand

Transmission electron microscopy study of individual carbon nanotube breakdown caused by Joule heating in air.
We present repeated structural and electrical measurements on individual multiwalled carbon nanotubes, alternating between electrical measurements under ambient conditions and transmission electronExpand

Large-N CP N − 1 sigma model on a finite interval and the renormalized string energy
We continue the analysis started in a recent paper of the large-N two-dimensional CPN−1 sigma model, defined on a finite space interval L with Dirichlet (or Neumann) boundary conditions. Here weExpand

Electron irradiation-induced destruction of carbon nanotubes in electron microscopes.
Observations of carbon nanotubes under exposure to electron beam irradiation in standard transmission electron microscope (TEM) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) systems show that such treatmentExpand

Dark Matter from new Technicolor Theories
We investigate dark matter candidates emerging in recently proposed technicolor theories. We determine the relic density of the lightest, neutral, stable technibaryon having imposed weak thermalExpand

Towards working technicolor: Effective theories and dark matter
A fifth force, of technicolor type, responsible for breaking the electroweak theory is an intriguing extension of the standard model. Recently new theories have been shown to feature walking dynamicsExpand

Flavor of quiver-like realizations of effective supersymmetry
A bstractWe present a class of supersymmetric models which address the flavor puzzle and have an inverted hierarchy of sfermions. Their construction involves quiver-like models with link fields inExpand

Vibrational modes of Skyrmions
We study the vibrational modes of Skyrmions with baryon numbers one through eight in the standard Skyrme model. The vibrational modes are found in the harmonic approximation around the classicalExpand
