Oscillating dynamical friction on galactic bars by trapped dark matter

The dynamic evolution of galactic bars in standard ΛCDM models is dominated by angular momentum loss to the dark matter haloes via dynamical friction. Traditional approximations to dynamical

Topological Pauli Phase and Fractional Quantization of Orbital Angular Momentum in the Problems of Classical and Quantum Physics

Physical problems for which the existence of non-trivial topological Pauli phase (i.e. fractional quantization of angular orbital angular momenta that is possible in 2D case) is essential are

Geometric Quaternionic Quantum Mechanics

In quantum mechanics, the symmetries of a physical system are closely related to the conservation laws within that system. As a result, a mathematical understanding of a system’s symmetries allows us

Theoretical investigations of Zinc Blende and Wurtzite semiconductor quantum wells on the rotated substrates

We present a comprehensive set of computations of effective mass theory for both the Kane’s parabolic band approximation and Luttinger-Kohn’s valence band mixing approximation. We generalize the k ·

Feedback Control of Collective Spin States for Atom Interferometry

In this thesis, we describe an until now unexplored approach in the operation of atomic interferometers; the feedback control of the atomic states during their evolution. Towards this goal, we

Dynamique et contrôle optique des molécules froides

Le travail theorique presente dans cette these concerne la formation de molecules ultra-froides bialcalines et le controle de leurs degres de liberte externes et internes. Cette etude est motivee par

Twisted Equivariant Matter

We show how general principles of symmetry in quantum mechanics lead to twisted notions of a group representation. This framework generalizes both the classical threefold way of real/complex/

Nuclear spin relaxation in isotropic and anisotropic media.

A novel formalism for the study of the electronic and optical properties of high symmetry heterostructures

The theories used up to now to model theoretically and numerically nanostructures, and more specifically semiconductor heterostructures, do not allow to include efficiently at the envelope function
