    Five-Dimensional f(R) Braneworld Models

    Full text link
    After incorporating the f(R) gravity into the general braneworld sum rules scope, it is shown that some particular class of warped five dimensional nonlinear braneworld models, which may be interesting for the hierarchy problem solution, still require a negative tension brane. For other classes of warp factors (suitable and not suitable for approaching the hierarchy problem) it is not necessary any negative brane tension in the compactification scheme. In this vein, it is argued that in the bulk f(R) gravity context, some types of warp factors may be useful for approaching the hierarchy problem and for evading the necessity of a negative brane tension in the compactification scheme.Comment: 10 pages, references updated, small modifications.

    New Algorithms for Computing a Single Component of the Discrete Fourier Transform

    Full text link
    This paper introduces the theory and hardware implementation of two new algorithms for computing a single component of the discrete Fourier transform. In terms of multiplicative complexity, both algorithms are more efficient, in general, than the well known Goertzel Algorithm.Comment: 4 pages, 3 figures, 1 table.

    Counting Integer flows in Networks

    Full text link
    This paper discusses new analytic algorithms and software for the enumeration of all integer flows inside a network. Concrete applications abound in graph theory \cite{Jaeger}, representation theory \cite{kirillov}, and statistics \cite{persi}. Our methods clearly surpass traditional exhaustive enumeration and other algorithms and can even yield formulas when the input data contains some parameters. These methods are based on the study of rational functions with poles on arrangements of hyperplanes

    Meson decay in a corrected 30P3^P_0 model

    Full text link
    Extensively applied to both light and heavy meson decay and standing as one of the most successful strong decay models is the 30P3^P_0 model, in which qqˉq\bar{q} pair production is the dominant mechanism. The pair production can be obtained from the non-relativistic limit of a microscopic interaction Hamiltonian involving Dirac quark fields. The evaluation of the decay amplitude can be performed by a diagrammatic technique for drawing quark lines. In this paper we use an alternative approach which consists in a mapping technique, the Fock-Tani formalism, in order to obtain an effective Hamiltonian starting from same microscopic interaction. An additional effect is manifest in this formalism associated to the extended nature of mesons: bound-state corrections. A corrected 30P3^P_0 is obtained and applied, as an example, to b1ωπb_{1}\to\omega\pi and a1ρπa_{1}\to\rho\pi decays.Comment: 3 figures. To appear in Physical Review
