    • Exact solution of an ekpyrotic fluid and a primordial magnetic field in an anisotropic cosmological space-time of Petrov D 

      Alvarado Marín, Rodrigo Eduardo (2017)
      This document obtained and analyzed an exact solution of an ekpyrotic fluid (P = 5/3 µ) and a primordial magnetic field, so that the latter does not induce currents or electric fields. It is determined that the main role, ...
    • Exact Solutions of a Chaplygin Gas in an Anisotropic Space-Time of Petrov D

      This document obtains two exact solutions to the anisotropic spacetime of Petrov D by using the model of a perfect fluid. These solutions represent a scenario of a universe in which the pressure P and the energetic density ...
    • Fundamentals of silicene 

      Willatzen, Morten; Lew Yan Voon, Lok Chong; Guzmán Verri, Gian Giacomo (2017-08-02)
      Silicene is a single atomic layer of silicon (Si) much like graphene, the first example of an elemental twodimensional (2D) nanomaterial whose study led to the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. Until 2010 or so, the only known ...
    • (Hydro)climatological studies of climate change and variability in Central America 

      Hidalgo León, Hugo G. (2018-06-26)
      This is the presentation of Hugo Hidalgo at the CORDEX Central America and South America Training Workshop on Downscaling Techniques, in La Paz, Bolivia, June 25 to 27, 2018.
    • Interaction of a quantum field with a rotating heat bath 

      Alicki, Robert; Jenkins Villalobos, Alejandro (2018-08-01)
      The linear coupling of a rotating heat bath to a quantum field is studied in the framework of the Markovian master equation for the field's non-unitary time evolution. The bath's rotation induces population inversion for ...
    • Irreversibility in an ideal fluid 

      Jenkins Villalobos, Alejandro (2014-10)
      When a real fluid is expelled quickly from a tube, it forms a jet separated from the surrounding fluid by a thin, turbulent layer. On the other hand, when the same fluid is sucked into the tube, it comes in from all ...
    • Irreversibility of mechanical and hydrodynamic instabilities 

      Díaz Marín, Carlos D.; Jenkins Villalobos, Alejandro (2017-12-01)
      The literature on dynamical systems has, for the most part, considered self-oscillators (i.e., systems capable of generating and maintaining a periodic motion at the expense of an external energy source with no corresponding ...
    • Landau theory and giant room-temperature barocaloric effect 

      Corrales Salazar, A.; Brierley, Richard T.; Littlewood, Peter B.; Guzmán Verri, Gian Giacomo (2017-10-17)
      The structural phase transitions of MF3 (M = Al, Cr, V, Fe, Ti, Sc) metal trifluorides are studied within a simple Landau theory consisting of tilts of rigid MF6 octahedra associated with soft antiferrodistortive optic ...
