The existence and -if exists- the nature of the solutions of the scalar wave equation in spacetimes with closed timelike curves are investigated. The general properties of the solutions on some class of spacetimes are obtained. Global monochromatic solutions of the scalar wave equation are obtained in flat wormholes of dimensions 2+1 and 3+1. The solutions are in the form of infinite series involving cylindirical and spherical wave functions and they are elucidated by the multiple scattering method. Explicit solutions for some limiting cases are illustrated as well. The results of 2+1 dimensions are verified by using numerical methods.

Effective Mass Quantum Systems with Displacement Operator: Inverse Square Plus Coulomb-Like Potential
Arda, Altug; Sever, Ramazan (2015-10-01)
The Schrodinger-like equation written in terms of the displacement operator is solved analytically for a inverse square plus Coulomb-like potential. Starting from the new Hamiltonian, the effects of the spatially dependent mass on the bound states and normalized wave functions of the "usual" inverse square plus Coulomb interaction are discussed.
Value sets of Lattes maps over finite fields
Küçüksakallı, Ömer (Elsevier BV, 2014-10-01)
We give an alternative computation of the value sets of Dickson polynomials over finite fields by using a singular cubic curve. Our method is not only simpler but also it can be generalized to the non-singular elliptic case. We determine the value sets of Lattes maps over finite fields which are rational functions induced by isogenies of elliptic curves with complex multiplication.
Critical points of D-dimensional extended gravities
Deser, S.; Liu, Haishan; Lue, H.; Pope, C. N.; Sisman, Tahsin Cagri; Tekin, Bayram (2011-03-17)
We study the parameter space of D-dimensional cosmological Einstein gravity together with quadratic curvature terms. In D < 4 there are in general two distinct (anti)-de Sitter vacua. We show that, for an appropriate choice of the parameters, there exists a critical point for one of the vacua, with only massless tensor, but neither massive tensor nor scalar, gravitons. At criticality, the linearized excitations have formally vanishing energy (as do black hole solutions). A further restriction of the paramet...
CHAINS OF THEORIES AND COMPANIONABILITY
Kasal, Ozcan; Pierce, David (2015-11-01)
The theory of fields that are equipped with a countably infinite family of commuting derivations is not companionable, but if the axiom is added whereby the characteristic of the fields is zero, then the resulting theory is companionable. Each of these two theories is the union of a chain of companionable theories. In the case of characteristic 0, the model-companions of the theories in the chain form another chain, whose union is therefore the model-companion of the union of the original chain. However, in...
Effective-mass Dirac equation for Woods-Saxon potential: Scattering, bound states, and resonances
AYDOĞDU, OKTAY; Arda, Altug; Sever, Ramazan (2012-04-01)
Approximate scattering and bound state solutions of the one-dimensional effective-mass Dirac equation with the Woods-Saxon potential are obtained in terms of the hypergeometric-type functions. Transmission and reflection coefficients are calculated by using behavior of the wave functions at infinity. The same analysis is done for the constant mass case. It is also pointed out that our results are in agreement with those obtained in literature. Meanwhile, an analytic expression is obtained for the transmissi...
