    A remark on the subleading order in the asymptotics of the nonequilibrium emptiness formation probability

    Full text link
    We study the asymptotic behavior of the emptiness formation probability for large spin strings in a translation invariant quasifree nonequilibrium steady state of the isotropic XY chain. Besides the overall exponential decay, we prove that, out of equilibrium, the exponent of the subleading power law contribution to the asymptotics is nonvanishing and strictly positive due to the singularities in the density of the steady state.Comment: 20 pages, 2 figure

    Use of fine unheated wires in shock tubes

    Some preliminary measurements of heat transfer to fine unheated wires have been made in the shock tube. These measurements show that the response of the wire is nearly exponential with time

    From the microscopic to the van Hove regime in the XY chain out of equilibrium

    Full text link
    Using the framework of rigorous algebraic quantum statistical mechanics, we construct the unique nonequilibrium steady state in the isotropic XY chain in which a sample of arbitrary finite size is coupled by a bond coupling perturbation of arbitrary strength to two infinitely extended thermal reservoirs, and we prove that this state is thermodynamically nontrivial. Moreover, extracting the leading second order contribution to its microscopic entropy production and deriving its entropy production in the van Hove weak coupling regime, we prove that, in the mathematically and physically important XY chain, the van Hove regime reproduces the leading order contribution to the microscopic regime.Comment: 44 pages, 2 figure

    The University of North Carolina Intergenerational Legal Ethics Project: Expanding the Contexts for Teaching Professional Ethics and Values

    Get PDF
    The University of North Carolina Law School Intergenerational Legal Ethics Project (UNC Project) is an effort to identify new course concepts and structures and other curricular innovations that can bring education in professional values to a deeper, more personal level. The UNC project includes the premise that ethical learning is deep, internal learning

    DURABLE CONSUMPTION AS A STATUS GOOD: A STUDY OF NEOCLASSICAL CASES

    Get PDF
    In this paper we extend the representative agent model of the consumer to incorporate durable consumption goods that generate status, where status depends on relative consumption. The study is done in the neoclassical context and incorporates analytical and numerical results. In the closed economy framework both endogenous and fixed employment cases are considered. A small open economy version of the model is also developed. We derive the intertemporal equilibria and establish that in all instances they are saddlepoint stable. Among our principle results, we show in the closed economy context with endogenous work effort that an increase in the degree of status preference raises durable consumption, its stock, employment, and physical capital. In addition, an increase in the status preference parameter affects the stable speeds of adjustment in the special case of fixed employment, depending on whether it raises or lowers the intertemporal elasticity of substitution. These results extend, in general, to the small open economStatus Seeking, Durable Consumption, Relative Consumption
