The antibracket formalism for gauge theories, at both the classical and quantum level, is reviewed. Gauge transformations and the associated gauge structure are analyzed in detail. The basic conceptsâ€¦ (More)

The annihilation of electron-positron pairs around one second after the big bang distorts the Fermi-Dirac spectrum of neutrino energies. We determine the distortions assuming neutrino mixing with anâ€¦ (More)

Energy eigenstates for N = 2 supersymmetric gauged quantum mechanics are found for the gauges groups SU(n) and U(n). The analysis is aided by the existence of an infinite number of conservedâ€¦ (More)

Patients with increased triglyceride levels compared to those with normal levels are at higher risk for coronary heart disease. In patients with severe (â‰¥500 mg/dl) hypertriglyceridemia (SHTG),â€¦ (More)

A Î¸ term, which couples to topological charge, is added to the twodimensional lattice CP 3 model and U(1) gauge theory. Monte Carlo simulations are performed and compared to strong-coupling characterâ€¦ (More)

An approximate vacuum wave functional Î¨ 0 is proposed for 2+1-dimensional Yang-Mills theories. Using Î¨ 0 , one can compute the 0 ++ glueball mass M G in terms of the string tension. By using the ideaâ€¦ (More)

A Î¸ term, which couples to topological charge, is added to the lattice CP Nâˆ’1 model. The strong-coupling character expansion is developed. The series for the free energy and mass gap are respectivelyâ€¦ (More)

Four-dimensional twisted group lattices are used as models for spacetime structure. Compared to other attempts at space-time deformation, they have two main advantages: They have a physicalâ€¦ (More)

The standard model of particle physics is analyzed for the case of a Higgs potential not favoring spontaneous electroweak symmetry breaking to gain insight into the physics of the standard model.â€¦ (More)

I present the theory and analysis behind the experiment by Fomalont and Kopeikin involving Jupiter and quasar J0842+1845 that purported to measure the speed of gravity. The computation of the v J /câ€¦ (More)
