    Identification of circles from datapoints using Gaussian sums

    Full text link
    We present a pattern recognition method which use datapoints on a plane and estimates the parameters of a circle. MC data are generated in order to test the method's efficiency over noise hits, uncertainty in the hits positions and number of datapoints. The scenario were the hits from a quadrant of the circle are missing is also considered. The method proposed is proven to be robust, accurate and very efficient.Comment: 4 pages, 5 figure

    On the Lieb-Liniger model in the infinite coupling constant limit

    Full text link
    We consider the one-dimensional Lieb-Liniger model (bosons interacting via 2-body delta potentials) in the infinite coupling constant limit (the so-called Tonks-Girardeau model). This model might be relevant as a description of atomic Bose gases confined in a one-dimensional geometry. It is known to have a fermionic spectrum since the N-body wavefunctions have to vanish at coinciding points, and therefore be symmetrizations of fermionic Slater wavefunctions. We argue that in the infinite coupling constant limit the model is indistinguishable from free fermions, i.e., all physically accessible observables are the same as those of free fermions. Therefore, Bose-Einstein condensate experiments at finite energy that preserve the one-dimensional geometry cannot test any bosonic characteristic of such a model

    A spark-resistant bulk-micromegas chamber for high-rate applications

    Full text link
    We report on the design and performance of a spark-resistant bulk-micromegas chamber. The principle of this design lends itself to the construction of large-area muon chambers for the upgrade of the detectors at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN for luminosities in excess of 10**34/cm2/s or other high-rate applications.Comment: 12 pages, 13 figure

    Non-Commutative Corrections to the MIC-Kepler Hamiltonian

    Full text link
    Non-commutative corrections to the MIC-Kepler System (i.e. hydrogen atom in the presence of a magnetic monopole) are computed in Cartesian and parabolic coordinates. Despite the fact that there is no simple analytic expression for non-commutative perturbative corrections to the MIC-Kepler spectrum, there is a term that gives rise to the linear Stark effect which didn't exist in the standard hydrogen model.Comment: 5 page
