Tinkertoy theories for E₇ and E₈
We construct the 4D N = 2 super conformal field theories (SCFT) of class-S of type E₇ and E₈. These are four-dimensional N = 2 SCFT arising from the compactification of the E₇ and E₈ (2, 0) theory on a punctured Riemann ...
The structure of general relativity with a numerical illustration : the collision of two black holes
The splitting of spacetime into space and time is analyzed by abstract methods, coordinate methods, and numerical computer methods. General relativity is assumed to be the correct theory of gravity and the Einstein field ...

Aspects of class-S theories
This dissertation discusses certain aspects of class-S theories [1,2]. First we give an overview of class-S theories. Then we report on the study of product SCFTs in class-S theories. We first describe an algorithm to ...
Crystal growth of the cuprate superconductor La1.6-xNd0.4SrxCuO4 by the traveling solvent floating zone method
In this thesis, my efforts of the single crystal growth of a cuprate series La₁.₆₋[subscript x]Nd₀.₄Sr[subscript x]CuO₄ by the travelling solvent floating zone method will be described. The availability of high quality ...
