### Triaxial projected shell model approach

The projected shell model analysis is carried out using the triaxial
Nilsson+BCS basis. It is demonstrated that, for an accurate description of the
moments of inertia in the transitional region, it is necessary to take the
triaxiality into account and perform the three-dimensional angular-momentum
projection from the triaxial Nilsson+BCS intrinsic wavefunction.Comment: 9 pages, 2 figure

### Time synchronization via the transit satellite at Mizusawa

Time signals emitted from Transit satellites and received by the NAVICODE type receiver at Mizusawa, Japan are presented. The International Latitude Observatory of Mizusawa and the U. S. Naval Observatory were compared using the time signals. Propagation delays, a receiver delay, effects of relative motion of satellites, and effects of the ionosphere are discussed

### Varied Signature Splitting Phenomena in Odd Proton Nuclei

Varied signature splitting phenomena in odd proton rare earth nuclei are
investigated. Signature splitting as functions of $K$ and $j$ in the angular
momentum projection theory is explicitly shown and compared with those of the
particle rotor model. The observed deviations from these rules are due to the
band mixings. The recently measured $^{169}$Ta high spin data are taken as a
typical example where fruitful information about signature effects can be
extracted. Six bands, two of which have not yet been observed, were calculated
and discussed in detail in this paper. The experimentally unknown band head
energies are given

### On the Backbending Mechanism of $^{48}$Cr

The mechanism of backbending in $^{48}$Cr is investigated in terms of the
Projected Shell Model and the Generator Coordinate Method. It is shown that
both methods are reasonable shell model truncation schemes. These two quite
different quantum mechanical approaches lead to a similar conclusion that the
backbending is due to a band crossing involving an excited band which is built
on simultaneously broken neutron and proton pairs in the ``intruder'' subshell
$f_{7/2}$. It is pointed out that this type of band crossing is usually known
to cause the second backbending in rare-earth nuclei.Comment: 4 pages, 4 figures, accepted for publication in Phys. Rev. Let

### The scaling limit of the incipient infinite cluster in high-dimensional percolation. II. Integrated super-Brownian excursion

For independent nearest-neighbour bond percolation on Z^d with d >> 6, we
prove that the incipient infinite cluster's two-point function and three-point
function converge to those of integrated super-Brownian excursion (ISE) in the
scaling limit. The proof is based on an extension of the new expansion for
percolation derived in a previous paper, and involves treating the magnetic
field as a complex variable. A special case of our result for the two-point
function implies that the probability that the cluster of the origin consists
of n sites, at the critical point, is given by a multiple of n^{-3/2}, plus an
error term of order n^{-3/2-\epsilon} with \epsilon >0. This is a strong
statement that the critical exponent delta is given by delta =2.Comment: 56 pages, 3 Postscript figures, in AMS-LaTeX, with graphicx, epic,

### Collective oscillation period of inter-coupled biological negative cyclic feedback oscillators

A number of biological rhythms originate from networks comprised of multiple
cellular oscillators. But analytical results are still lacking on the
collective oscillation period of inter-coupled gene regulatory oscillators,
which, as has been reported, may be different from that of an autonomous
oscillator. Based on cyclic feedback oscillators, we analyze the collective
oscillation pattern of coupled cellular oscillators. First we give a condition
under which the oscillator network exhibits oscillatory and synchronized
behavior. Then we estimate the collective oscillation period based on a novel
multivariable harmonic balance technique. Analytical results are derived in
terms of biochemical parameters, thus giving insight into the basic mechanism
of biological oscillation and providing guidance in synthetic biology design.Comment: arXiv admin note: substantial text overlap with arXiv:1203.125

### Free Field Approach to the Dilute A_L Models

We construct a free field realization of vertex operators of the dilute A_L
models along with the Felder complex. For L=3, we also study an E_8 structure
in terms of the deformed Virasoro currents.Comment: (AMS-)LaTeX(2e), 43page

### Experimental determination of the turbulence in a liquid rocket combustion chamber

The intensity of turbulence and the Lagrangian correlation coefficient for a liquid rocket combustion chamber were determined experimentally using the tracer gas diffusion method. The results indicate that the turbulent diffusion process can be adequately modeled by the one-dimensional Taylor theory; however, the numerical values show significant disagreement with previously accepted values. The intensity of turbulence is higher by a factor of about two, while the Lagrangian correlation coefficient which was assumed to be unity in the past is much less than unity

### Kinetic simulations of ladder climbing by electron plasma waves

The energy of plasma waves can be moved up and down the spectrum using
chirped modulations of plasma parameters, which can be driven by external
fields. Depending on whether the wave spectrum is discrete (bounded plasma) or
continuous (boundless plasma), this phenomenon is called ladder climbing (LC)
or autoresonant acceleration of plasmons. It was first proposed by Barth
\textit{et al.} [PRL \textbf{115}, 075001 (2015)] based on a linear fluid
model. In this paper, LC of electron plasma waves is investigated using fully
nonlinear Vlasov-Poisson simulations of collisionless bounded plasma. It is
shown that, in agreement with the basic theory, plasmons survive substantial
transformations of the spectrum and are destroyed only when their wave numbers
become large enough to trigger Landau damping. Since nonlinear effects decrease
the damping rate, LC is even more efficient when practiced on structures like
quasiperiodic Bernstein-Greene-Kruskal (BGK) waves rather than on Langmuir
waves \textit{per~se}
