Aspects of inflationary cosmology
(20160425)We discuss aspects of excited initial states in inflationary cosmology. We review the basic framework of inflationary cosmology and how to compute observable correlation functions. The framework of excited initial states ... 
Aspects of relativistic Hamiltonian physics
(201508)This dissertation presents various new results in relativistic Hamiltonian plasma physics. It begins with an overview of Hamiltonian physics, with an emphasis on noncanonical brackets, and presents various nonrelativistic ... 
Atom optics experiments in quantum chaos
(200112) 
Atomic Fock states and quantum computing
(200908)The potential impact of quantum computing has stimulated a worldwide effort to develop the necessary experimental and theoretical resources. In the race for the quantum computer, several candidate systems have emerged, ... 
An atomic physics viewpoint of stellar abundance analysis
(200705)Element abundance trends with overall metallicity contain vital clues to the formation and evolution of the Galaxy. Abundances may be used to elucidate nucleosynthesis mechanisms and to ascertain rates of Galactic enrichment. ... 
Attraction And Repulsion Of MultiColor Laser Beams In Plasmas: A Computational Study
(200901)The nonlinear interaction of highpower multicolor laser beams in plasmas is investigated numerically. Both the relativistic mass increase and the driven plasma wave contribute to the mutual beambeam interaction and to ... 
Bayesian analysis of the complex Bingham distribution
(201012)While most statistical applications involve real numbers, some demand complex numbers. Statistical shape analysis is one such area. The complex Bingham distribution is utilized in the shape analysis of landmark data in ... 
Berry phase related effects in ferromagnetic metal materials
(201105)The concept of Berry phase, since its proposition in 1984, has found numerous applications and appears in almost every branch of physics today. In this work, we study several physical effects in ferromagnetic metal ... 
Beyond wild walls there is algebraicity and exponential growth (of BPS indices)
(201505)The BPS spectrum of pure SU(3) fourdimensional super YangMills with N=2 supersymmetry (a theory of class S(A)) exhibits a surprising phenomenon: there are regions of the Coulomb branch where the growth of BPSindices ... 
Biological order, structure and instabilities
(Quarterly Reviews of Biophysics, 1971) 
Boosted apparent horizons
(200908)Boosted black holes play an important role in General Relativity (GR), especially in relation to the binary black hole problem. Solving Einstein vacuum equations in the strong field regime had long been the holy grail of ... 
The Bose/Fermi oscillators in a new supersymmetric representation
(200108)This work deals with the application of supermathematics to supersymmetrical problems arising in physics. Some recent developments are presented in detail. A reduction scheme for general supermanifolds to vector bundles ... 
Boundary conditions for black holes using the Ashtekar isolated and dynamical horizons formalism
(201012)Isolated and Dynamical horizons are used to generate boundary conditions upon the lapse and shift vectors. Numerous results involving the Hamiltonian of General relativity are derived, including a selfcontained derivation ...
