The question of gauge covariance in the non-Abelian gauge-field formulation of two space-dimensional systems with spin-orbit coupling relevant to spintronics is investigated. Although these are generally gauge-fixed models, it is found that for the class of gauge fields that are spacetime independent and satisfy a U(1) algebra, thus having a vanishing field strength, there is a residual gauge freedom in the Hamiltonian. The gauge transformations assume the form of a space-dependent rotation of the transformed wavefunctions with rotation angles and axes determined by the specific form of the gauge field, i.e. the spin-orbit coupling. The fields can be gauged away, reducing the Hamiltonian to one which is isospectral to the free-particle Hamiltonian, and giving rise to the phenomenon of persistent spin helix reported first by Bernevig et al (2006 Phys. Rev. Lett. 97 236601). The investigation of the global gauge transformations leads to the derivation of a continuity equation where the component of the spin density along given directions, again fixed by the specific form of the gauge field, is conserved.

AN INTEGRABLE FAMILY OF MONGE-AMPERE EQUATIONS AND THEIR MULTI-HAMILTONIAN STRUCTURE
NUTKU, Yavuz; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür (1993-01-01)
We have identified a completely integrable family of Monge-Ampère equations through an examination of their Hamiltonian structure. Starting with a variational formulation of the Monge-Ampère equations we have constructed the first Hamiltonian operator through an application of Dirac's theory of constraints. The completely integrable class of Monge-Ampère equations are then obtained by solving the Jacobi identities for a sufficiently general form of the second Hamiltonian operator that is compatible with the...
Discretization and Parallel Iterative Schemes for Advection-Diffusion-Reaction Problems
Sivas, Abdullah Ali; Manguoğlu, Murat; Boonkkamp, J. H. M. ten Thije; Anthonissen, M. J. H. (2015-09-18)
Conservation laws of advection-diffusion-reaction (ADR) type are ubiquitous in continuum physics. In this paper we outline discretization of these problems and iterative schemes for the resulting linear system. For discretization we use the finite volume method in combination with the complete flux scheme. The numerical flux is the superposition of a homogeneous flux, corresponding to the advection-diffusion operator, and the inhomogeneous flux, taking into account the effect of the source term (ten Thije B...
New approaches for performance evaluation using data envelopment analysis
Özpeynirci, Nail Özgür; Köksalan, Murat; Department of Industrial Engineering (2004)
Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) assigns efficiency values to decision making units (DMU) in a given period by comparing the outputs with the inputs. In many applications, inputs and outputs of DMUs are monitored over time. There might be a time lag between the consumption of inputs and production of outputs. We develop approaches that aim to capture the time lag between the outputs and the inputs in assigning the efficiency values to DMUs. We present computational results on randomly generated problems as w...
Q-Adaptation of SVD-aided UKF Algorithm for Nanosatellite Attitude Estimation
Hacızade, Cengiz; Söken, Halil Ersin; Guler, Demet Cilden (2017-01-01)
In this study, we propose process noise covariance matrix adaptation (Q-adaptation) for the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) aided Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) algorithm. The main aim is to make the algorithm adaptive against the changes in the process noise covariance. The SVD-aided Adaptive UKF (SaAUKF) estimates the attitude and attitude rate of a nano satellite. We implement the SVD method in the algorithm's first phase using magnetometer and sun sensor measurements. It estimates the attitude of the ...
A discrete optimality system for an optimal harvesting problem
Bakan, Hacer Oz; Yilmaz, Fikriye; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-10-01)
In this paper, we obtain the discrete optimality system of an optimal harvesting problem. While maximizing a combination of the total expected utility of the consumption and of the terminal size of a population, as a dynamic constraint, we assume that the density of the population is modeled by a stochastic quasi-linear heat equation. Finite-difference and symplectic partitioned Runge-Kutta (SPRK) schemes are used for space and time discretizations, respectively. It is the first time that a SPRK scheme is e...
