Collision of Gravitational Waves: axisymmetric PP Waves

Download
2007
Onuk, Ahmet Emre
The collision of impulsive gravitational waves, electromagnetic plane waves with collinear polarization and, especially, plane fronted parallel waves (pp waves) are considered. The solution of axisymmetric pp waves is reviewed and the structures of the resulting space-times are investigated with the help of curvature invariants.

Multiparticle correlation studies in pPb collisions root s(NN)=8.16 TeV
Sirunyan, A. M.; et. al. (2020-01-01)
The second- and third-order azimuthal anisotropy Fourier harmonics of charged particles produced in pPb collisions, at √ s N N = 8.16 TeV , are studied over a wide range of event multiplicities. Multiparticle correlations are used to isolate global properties stemming from the collision overlap geometry. The second-order “elliptic” harmonic moment is obtained with high precision through four-, six-, and eight-particle correlations and, for the first time, the third-order “triangular” harmonic moment is s...
AMPLITUDE EVOLUTION AND RUNUP OF LONG WAVES; COMPARISON OF EXPERIMENTAL AND NUMERICAL DATA ON A 3D COMPLEX TOPOGRAPHY
Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Synolakis, Costas E. (2004-06-12)
The runup of long waves on the sloping planes is described by the analytical solutions of the long wave equations with special initial conditions, proper approximations and boundary conditions. These studies are also compared with experimental data (Yeh et al. (1996); Lin et al. (1999); Yalciner et al. (2003)). Similarly the numerical methods solving governing equations with proper boundary conditions are also developed and compared with either analytical or experimental or field data for long wave propagat...
LONGITUDINAL ELASTIC-WAVE PROPAGATION AND ENERGY FLUX AT A DISCONTINUITY OF 2 DISSIMILAR SEMIINFINITE CIRCULAR RODS
Yıldırım, Raif Orhan (1994-10-01)
Elastic wave propagation through an area discontinuity of two dissimilar, bonded, semi-infinite circular rods is investigated analytically. In particular, the variations of the coefficients of stress reflection and transmission are determined in terms of the nondimensional cross sectional area and mechanical impedance parameters. The coefficients of energy flux reflection and transmission are also included. Then, the case is generalized to include a rigid mass attached at the discontinuity.
Ensemble monte carlo study of nonequilibrium carrier dynamics in photo-excited p-i-n, structures
Guncer, SE; Ferry, DK (1996-04-01)
Light scattering from conduction electrons (or from valence holes) can give information on the time-resolved velocity distribution of nonequilibrium carriers. The experimental approach utilizes, e.g., Raman scattering from the single particles to ascertain the velocity distribution. Calculation of the distribution function through an ensemble Monte Carlo technique allows a comparison between the experiment and theory. Here, this is demonstrated with studies of a GaAs p-i-n structure embedded within cladding...
Colliding gravitational plane waves : bell-szekeres solution
Cambaz, Efsun; Karasu, Atalay; Department of Physics (2005)
The collision of pure electromagnetic plane waves with collinear polarization in Einstein-Maxwell theory and the collision of gravitational plane waves in vacuum Einstein theory are studied. The singularity structure of the Bell-Szekeres and the Szekeres solutions is examined by using curvature invariants. As a final work, the collision of the plane waves in dilaton gravity theory is studied and also the singularity structure of the corresponding space-time is examined.
