  • From micro to macro: particle physics, gravity and cosmology

    Martins, Jéssica Silvano (Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP), 2019) [Tese de doutorado]
    In this thesis we review the particle content of our Universe and its cosmic evolution and show some new physics searches in these two areas. In Part I we present bounds on the energy scale of new physics and couplings of ...
  • Finite time blow-up and breaking of solitary wind waves

    Manna, M. A.; Montalvo, P.; Kraenkel, R. A. Autor UNESP (Physical Review E, 2014) [Artigo]
    The evolution of surface water waves in finite depth under wind forcing is reduced to an antidissipative Korteweg-de Vries-Burgers equation. We exhibit its solitary wave solution. Antidissipation accelerates and increases ...

    Padula, Sandra S. Autor UNESP (Acta Physica Polonica B, Proceedings Supplement, 2019) [Artigo]
    Femtoscopic correlations between charged hadrons are measured for minimum-bias and for high-multiplicity events in proton–proton collisions at s = 13 TeV. The results are based on data collected with the CMS experiment at ...
  • Causal faster-than-light travel from a localized second time coordinate

    Nastase, Horatiu Autor UNESP (Physical Review D, 2019) [Artigo]
    I present a general relativistic model with a compactified second time coordinate that a priori allows for causal, yet faster than light travel in the background of a Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker geometry, by local ...
  • Weak coupling to unitarity crossover in Bose-Fermi mixtures: Mixing-demixing transition and spontaneous symmetry breaking in trapped systems

    Gautam, Sandeep; Adhikari, S. K. Autor UNESP (Physical Review A, 2019) [Artigo]
    The usual treatment of a Bose-Fermi mixture relies on weak-coupling Gross-Pitaevskii (GP) and density-functional (DF) Lagrangians, often including the more realistic perturbative Lee-Huang-Yang (LHY) corrections. We suggest ...
  • S-duality, entropy function and transport in AdS 4 /CMT 3

    Alejo, Luis Autor UNESP; Goulart, Prieslei; Nastase, Horatiu Autor UNESP (Journal of High Energy Physics, 2019) [Artigo]
    In this paper we consider Abelian vector plus scalar holographic gravity models for 2+1 dimensional condensed matter transport, and the effect of S-duality on them. We find the transport coefficients from the electric and ...
  • Stable controllable giant vortex in a trapped Bose-Einstein condensate

    Adhikari, S. K. Autor UNESP (Laser Physics Letters, 2019) [Artigo]
    In a harmonically-trapped rotating Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC), a vortex of large angular momentum decays to multiple vortices of unit angular momentum from an energetic consideration. We demonstrate the formation of a ...
  • Octagons I: combinatorics and non-planar resummations

    Bargheer, Till; Coronado, Frank Autor UNESP; Vieira, Pedro Autor UNESP (Journal of High Energy Physics, 2019) [Artigo]
    We explain how the ’t Hooft expansion of correlators of half-BPS operators can be resummed in a large-charge limit in N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory. The full correlator in the limit is given by a non-trivial function of ...

    In this paper, we study some classical aspects of Podolsky electrodynamics in the static regime. We develop the multipole expansion for the theory in both the electrostatic and the magnetostatic cases. We also address the ...
  • One-dimensional bosonization and the SYK model

    Murugan, Jeff; Nastase, Horatiu Autor UNESP (Journal of High Energy Physics, 2019) [Artigo]
    We explore the possibility of extending the familiar bosonization of two dimensions to (0 + 1)-dimensional systems with a large number of degrees of freedom. As an application of this technique, we consider a class of ...

    Gautam, Sandeep; Adhikari, Sadhan K. Autor UNESP (Annals of Physics, 2019) [Artigo]
    The perturbative Lee–Huang–Yang (LHY) interaction proportional to n3∕2, where n is the density, creates an infinitely repulsive potential at the center of a Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) with net attraction, which stops ...

    Bernardo, Heliudson Autor UNESP; Costa, Renato; Nastase, Horatiu Autor UNESP; Weltman, Amanda (Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics, 2019) [Artigo]
    We investigate the possibility that the inflaton, in particular in conformal inflation models, is also a chameleon, i.e. that it couples to the energy density of some heavy non-relativistic matter present during inflation. ...

    Basso, Benjamin; Coronado, Frank Autor UNESP; Komatsu, Shota; Lam, Ho Tat; Vieira, Pedro Autor UNESP; Zhong, De-liang (Journal of High Energy Physics, 2019) [Artigo]
    We initiate the study of four-point functions of large BPS operators at any value of the coupling. We do it by casting it as a sum over exchange of superconformal primaries and computing the structure constants using ...
  • Half-BPS vertex operators of the AdS5 × S5 superstring

    Berkovits, Nathan Autor UNESP (Journal of High Energy Physics, 2019) [Artigo]
    Using the pure spinor formalism for the superstring in an AdS5 × S5 background, a simple expression is found for half-BPS vertex operators. At large radius, these vertex operators reduce to the usual supergravity vertex ...
