    Hamiltonian Reduction and Supersymmetric Toda Models

    Get PDF
    New formulations of the solutions of N=1 and N=2 super Toda field theory are introduced, using Hamiltonian Reduction of the N=1 and N=2 super WZNW Models to the super Toda Models. These parameterisations are then used to present the Hamiltonian formulations of the super Toda theories on the spaces of solutions.Comment: 15pp., LaTe

    Covariant Phase Space Formulations of Superparticles and Supersymmetric WZW Models

    Full text link
    We present new covariant phase space formulations of superparticles moving on a group manifold, deriving the fundamental Poisson brackets and current algebras. We show how these formulations naturally generalise to the supersymmetric Wess-Zumino-Witten models.Comment: 15pp., LaTe

    Correlation functions for the three state superintegrable chiral Potts spin chain of finite lengths

    Full text link
    We compute the correlation functions of the three state superintegrable chiral Potts spin chain for chains of length 3,4,5. From these results we present conjectures for the form of the nearest neighbor correlation function.Comment: 10 pages; references update

    Eigenvectors in the Superintegrable Model I: sl_2 Generators

    Full text link
    In order to calculate correlation functions of the chiral Potts model, one only needs to study the eigenvectors of the superintegrable model. Here we start this study by looking for eigenvectors of the transfer matrix of the periodic tau_2(t)model which commutes with the chiral Potts transfer matrix. We show that the degeneracy of the eigenspace of tau_2(t) in the Q=0 sector is 2^r, with r=(N-1)L/N when the size of the transfer matrix L is a multiple of N. We introduce chiral Potts model operators, different from the more commonly used generators of quantum group U-tilde_q(sl-hat(2)). From these we can form the generators of a loop algebra L(sl(2)). For this algebra, we then use the roots of the Drinfeld polynomial to give new explicit expressions for the generators representing the loop algebra as the direct sum of r copies of the simple algebra sl(2).Comment: LaTeX 2E document, 11 pages, 1 eps figure, using iopart.cls with graphicx and iopams packages. v2: Appended text to title, added acknowledgments and made several minor corrections v3: Added reference, eliminated ambiguity, corrected a few misprint

    Q-Dependent Susceptibilities in Ferromagnetic Quasiperiodic Z-Invariant Ising Models

    Full text link
    We study the q-dependent susceptibility chi(q) of a series of quasiperiodic Ising models on the square lattice. Several different kinds of aperiodic sequences of couplings are studied, including the Fibonacci and silver-mean sequences. Some identities and theorems are generalized and simpler derivations are presented. We find that the q-dependent susceptibilities are periodic, with the commensurate peaks of chi(q) located at the same positions as for the regular Ising models. Hence, incommensurate everywhere-dense peaks can only occur in cases with mixed ferromagnetic-antiferromagnetic interactions or if the underlying lattice is aperiodic. For mixed-interaction models the positions of the peaks depend strongly on the aperiodic sequence chosen.Comment: LaTeX2e, 26 pages, 9 figures (27 eps files). v2: Misprints correcte

    Virtual Organizational Learnign in Open Source Software Development Projects

    Get PDF
    We studied the existence of virtual organizational learning in open source software (OSS) development projects. Specifically, our research focused on learning effects of OSS projects and factors that affect the learning process. The number and percentage of resolved bugs and bug resolution time of 118 SourceForge.net OSS projects were used to measure the learning effects> Projects were characterized by project type, number and experience of developers, number of bugs, and bug resolution time. Our results provide evidence of virtual organizational learning in OSS development projects.Virtual organizational leraning: Organizational learning curve: Virtual organization: Open source software development: Project performance

    Roots of Unity: Representations of Quantum Groups

    Get PDF
    Representations of Quantum Groups U_q (g_n), g_n any semi simple Lie algebra of rank n, are constructed from arbitrary representations of rank n-1 quantum groups for q a root of unity. Representations which have the maximal dimension and number of free parameters for irreducible representations arise as special cases.Comment: 23 page
