    An approach toward the successful supernova explosion by physics of unstable nuclei

    Full text link
    We study the explosion mechanism of collapse-driven supernovae by numerical simulations with a new nuclear EOS based on unstable nuclei. We report new results of simulations of general relativistic hydrodynamics together with the Boltzmann neutrino-transport in spherical symmetry. We adopt the new data set of relativistic EOS and the conventional set of EOS (Lattimer-Swesty EOS) to examine the influence on dynamics of core-collapse, bounce and shock propagation. We follow the behavior of stalled shock more than 500 ms after the bounce and compare the evolutions of supernova core.Comment: 4 pages, 2 figures, contribution to Nuclei in the Cosmos 8, to appear in Nucl.

    Tsallis entropy: How unique?

    Full text link
    It is shown how, among a class of generalized entropies, the Tsallis entropy can uniquely be identified by the principles of thermodynamics, the concept of stability and the axiomatic foundation.Comment: 21 pages. Contribution to a topical issue of Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamic

    Bayesian approach to extreme-value statistics based on conditional maximum-entropy method

    Get PDF
    Recently, the conditional maximum-entropy method (abbreviated as C-MaxEnt) has been proposed for selecting priors in Bayesian statistics in a very simple way. Here, it is examined for extreme-value statistics. For the Weibull type as an explicit example, it is shown how C-MaxEnt can give rise to a prior satisfying Jeffreys' rule.Comment: 10 pages, 1 figure. To appear in J. Phys.: Conf. Se

    Weak invariants of time-dependent quantum dissipative systems

    Get PDF
    The concept of weak invariant is introduced. Then, the weak invariants associated with time-dependent quantum dissipative systems are discussed in the context of master equations of the Lindblad type. In particular, with the help of the su(1,1) Lie-algebraic structure, the weak invariant is explicitly constructed for the quantum damped harmonic oscillator with the time-dependent frequency and friction coefficient. This generalizes the Lewis-Riesenfeld invariant to the case of nonunitary dynamics in the Markovian approximation.Comment: 15 pages, no figures. Published versio
