    Boson-fermion demixing in a cloud of lithium atoms in a pancake trap

    Full text link
    We evaluate the equilibrium state of a mixture of 7Li and 6Li atoms with repulsive interactions, confined inside a pancake-shaped trap under conditions such that the thickness of the bosonic and fermionic clouds is approaching the values of the s-wave scattering lengths. In this regime the effective couplings depend on the axial confinement and full demixing can become observable by merely squeezing the trap, without enhancing the scattering lengths through recourse to a Feshbach resonance.Comment: 11 pages, 3 figures, to appear in Phys.

    Boson-fermion mixtures inside an elongated cigar-shaped trap

    Full text link
    We present mean-field calculations of the equilibrium state in a gaseous mixture of bosonic and spin-polarized fermionic atoms with repulsive or attractive interspecies interactions, confined inside a cigar-shaped trap under conditions such that the radial thickness of the two atomic clouds is approaching the magnitude of the s-wave scattering lengths. In this regime the kinetic pressure of the fermionic component is dominant. Full demixing under repulsive boson-fermion interactions can occur only when the number of fermions in the trap is below a threshold, and collapse under attractive interactions is suppressed within the range of validity of the mean-field model. Specific numerical illustrations are given for values of system parameters obtaining in 7Li-6Li clouds.Comment: 12 pages, 6 figure

    The Degree of Financial Liberalization and Aggregated Stock-return Volatility in Emerging Markets

    In this study, we address whether the degree of financial liberalization affects the aggregated total volatility of stock returns by considering the time-varying nature of financial liberalization. We also explore channels through which the degree of financial liberalization impacts aggregated total volatility. We document a negative relation to the degree of financial liberalization after controlling for size, liquidity, country, and crisis effects, especially for small and medium-sized markets. Moreover, the degree of financial liberalization transmits its negative impact on aggregated total volatility through aggregated idiosyncratic and local volatilities. Overall, our results provide evidence in favor of the view that the broadening of the investor base due to the increasing degree of financial liberalization causes a reduction in the total volatility of stock returns.return volatility;financial liberalization;market integration;volatility decomposition;emerging markets

    Renormalization Group Analysis of a Gursey Model Inspired Field Theory II

    Full text link
    Recently a model, which is equivalent to the scalar form of Gursey model, is shown to be a nontrivial field theoretical model when it is gauged with a SU(N) field. In this paper we study another model that is equivalent to the vector form of the Gursey model. We get a trivial theory when it is coupled with a scalar field. This result changes drastically when it is coupled with an additional SU(N) field. We find a nontrivial field theoretical model under certain conditions.Comment: 10 pages, 10 figures, revtex4, typos corrected, published versio

    Risk and return in a Dynamic General Equilibrium Model

    Get PDF
    Cataloged from PDF version of article.In this paper we examine the relationship between risk and return on productive assets using the intertemporal general equilibrium model of Brock (1982, Asset Prices in a Production Economy, the University of Chicago Press, Chicago, pp. 1-42) as a basis for a simulation study. Current computational techniques are used to solve the growth model of Brock (1979, An Integration of Stochastic Growth and the Theory of Finance - Part I: The Growth Model, Academic Press, New York, pp. 165-192) in order to analyze the underlying financial model. Contrary to recent empirical findings, we find that there is a theoretical basis for the linear relationship between risk and return. This apparent contradiction is due in part to the fact that the dynamic relationship between risk and return depends on the level of output. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved

    Thesis (Doctoral)--Izmir Institute of Technology, Chemical Engineering, Izmir, 2009Includes bibliographical references (leaves: 135-143)Text in English; Abstract: Turkish and Englishxvi, 220 leavesRecent innovations of microwave field lead many scientists to focus on this phenomenon and it has been begun to be applied in different fields of zeolite applications. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of microwave irradiation on ion exchange degree and on the structure of natural zeolite. The clinoptilolite rich mineral from Western Anatolia was used throughout the experiments. The ion exchange experiments were performed using AgNO3, Co.(NO3)26H2O and Cu (NO3)25/2H2O within 0.01M - 1M and 40 oC - 80 oC concentration and temperature range in conventional waterbath and microwave. Different solid and solution conditions on ion exchange degree were determined, as well. Metal exchanged minerals were characterized by using instrumental techniques. Antibacterial activity of the Agexchanged clinoptilolite against E. coli was determined by Kirby.Bauer method. The Ag +, Co2+ and Cu2+ amounts within the mineral increased with decreasing S/L while increased with increasing temperature and time. For some utilized parameters microwave treatment was effective however on the whole it did not significantly improved the degree of ion exchange compared to waterbath treatment. The inspection of XRD patterns and FTIR spectra of metal exchanged minerals confirmed that no transition of clinoptilolite phase and no shifts in peak positions occurred with exchange methods applied. The sorption processes are controlled mainly by external-phase mass transfer. Ag+, Co2+ and Cu2+ sorptions on NaCLI exhibited a good fit to Freundlich model and Langmuir models. All metal exchanged minerals showed considerable superiority against E.Coli
