The kinematic dynamo (KD) describes the growth of magnetic fields generated by the flow of a conducting medium in the limit of vanishing backaction of the fields onto the flow. The KD is therefore an important model system for understanding astrophysical magnetism. Here, the mathematical correspondence between the KD and a specific stochastic differential equation (SDE) viewed from the perspective of the supersymmetric theory of stochastics (STS) is discussed. The STS is a novel, approximation…

Supersymmetric theory of stochastic ABC model
In this paper, we investigate numerically the stochastic ABC model, a toy model in the theory of astrophysical kinematic dynamos, within the recently proposed supersymmetric theory of stochastics
Introduction to Supersymmetric Theory of Stochastics
TLDR
The possibility of constructing a unified theory of DLRO has emerged recently within the approximation-free supersymmetric theory of stochastics (STS), which may be interesting to researchers with very different backgrounds because the ubiquitous DLRO is a truly interdisciplinary entity.
Criticality or Supersymmetry Breaking?
TLDR
A 1D chain of neuron-like elements is studied and it is found that the dynamics in the N-phase is indeed featured by positive stochastic Lyapunov exponents and dominated by (anti)instantonic processes of (creation) annihilation of kinks and antikinks, which can be viewed as predecessors of boundaries of neuroavalanches.
Chaos as a symmetry-breaking phenomenon
Chaos is an ubiquitous and fundamental phenomenon with a wide range of features pointing to a similar phenomenology. Although apparently distinct, it is natural to ask if all these features emerge
Linear optical approach to supersymmetric dynamics
The concept of supersymmetry developed in particle physics has been applied to various fields of modern physics. In quantum mechanics, the supersymmetric systems refer to the systems involving two
Stochastic Dynamics and Combinatorial Optimization
TLDR
This work proposes a method for stochastic dynamical optimization using the N-phase DSs, which can be viewed as a hybrid of the simulated and chaotic annealing methods and can result in a new generation of hardware devices for efficient solution of various search and/or combinatorial optimization problems.
Topological Field Theory and Computing with Instantons
TLDR
TFTs of another type, specifically the gauge-field-less Witten-type TFTs known as topological sigma models, describe the recently proposed digital memcomputing machines (DMMs) - engineered dynamical systems with point attractors being the solutions of the corresponding logic circuit that solves a specific task.
An Inexact Inverse Power Method for Numerical Analysis of Stochastic Dynamic Systems
TLDR
This paper proposes an efficient method for computing partial eigenvalues of large sparse matrices what can be called the inexact inverse power method (IIPM), and exemplifies the advantages of IIPM by applying it to find the ground state in theory of stochastics.

TLDR
It is discussed that the stochastic expectation values of a DS must be complemented on the TFT side by (-1)(F^), where F^ is the ghost number operator and the role of this inclusion is to unfold the natural path-integral representation of the T FT.
