  Berry Phase Effects on Electronic Properties
Posted on 2014-09-11 (Send to a Friend Send to a Friend )
Ever since its discovery, the notion of Berry phase has permeated through all branches of physics. Over the last three decades, it was gradually realized that the Berry phase of the electronic wave function can have a profound effect on material properties and is responsible for a spectrum of phenomena, such as polarization, orbital magnetism, various (quantum/anomalous/spin) Hall effects, and quantum charge pumping. This progress is summarized in a pedagogical manner in this review. We start with a brief summary of necessary background, a . . . .
   Topics in the Theory of Quadratic Residues
Posted on 2014-09-09 (Send to a Friend Send to a Friend )
Number theory as a coherent mathematical subject started with the work of Fermat in the decade from 1630 to 1640, but modern number theory, that is, the systematic and mathematically rigorous development of the subject from fundamental properties of the integers, began in 1801 with the appearance of the landmark text of Gauss, Disquisitiones Arithmeticae. A major part of the Disquisitiones deals with quadratic residues and nonresidues. Beginning with these fundamental contributions of Gauss, the study of quadratic residues and nonresidues has s . . . .
   The physics of hearing: fluid mechanics and the active process of the inner ear
Posted on 2014-09-09 (Send to a Friend Send to a Friend )
Most sounds of interest consist of complex, time-dependent admixtures of tones of diverse frequencies and variable amplitudes. To detect and process these signals, the ear employs a highly nonlinear, adaptive, real-time spectral analyzer: the cochlea. Sound excites vibration of the eardrum and the three miniscule bones of the middle ear, the last of which acts as a piston to initiate oscillatory pressure changes within the liquid-filled chambers of the cochlea. The basilar membrane, an elastic band spiraling along the cochlea between two of the . . . .
   The structure and dynamics of multilayer networks
Posted on 2014-09-08 (Send to a Friend Send to a Friend )
In the past years, network theory has successfully characterized the interaction among the constituents of a variety of complex systems, ranging from biological to technological, and social systems. However, up until recently, attention was almost exclusively given to networks in which all components were treated on equivalent footing, while neglecting all the extra information about the temporal- or context-related properties of the interactions under study. Only in the last years, taking advantage of the enhanced resolution in real data sets . . . .
