Non-simply connected Calabi-Yau threefolds constructed as quotients of Schoen threefolds

The aim of this paper is to complete the classification of all Calabi-Yau threefolds which are constructed as the quotient of a smooth Schoen threefold X = B-1 x p1 B-2 (fiber product over P-1 of two relatively minimal rational elliptic surfaces B-1 and B-2 with section) under a finite group action acting freely on the Schoen threefold X. The abelian group actions on smooth Schoen threefolds which induce cyclic group actions on the base curve P-1 were studied by Bouchard and Donagi (2008), and all such actions were listed. We consider the actions on the Schoen threefold by finite groups G whose elements are given as a product tau(1) x tau(2) of two automorphisms tau(1) and tau(2) of the rational elliptic surfaces B1 and B2 with section. In this paper, we use the classification of automorphism groups of rational elliptic surfaces with section given in Karayayla (2012) and Karayayla (2014) to generalize the results of Bouchard and Donagi to answer the question whether finite and freely acting group actions on Schoen threefolds which induce non-cyclic group actions on the base curve Pi exist or not. Despite the existence of group actions on rational elliptic surfaces which induce non-cyclic (even non-abelian) group actions on PI, it is shown in this paper that none of those actions can be lifted to free actions on a Schoen threefold. The main result is that there is no finite group action on a Schoen threefold X which acts freely on X and which induces a non-cyclic group action on the base curve P-1. This result shows that the list given in Bouchard and Donagi (2008) is a complete list of non-simply connected Calabi-Yau threefolds constructed as the quotient of a smooth Schoen threefold by a finite group action.

We prove that a finite solvable group G admitting a Frobenius group FH of automorphisms of coprime order with kernel F and complement H such that [G, F] = G and C-CG(F) (h) = 1 for all nonidentity elements h is an element of H, is of nilpotent length equal to the nilpotent length of the subgroup of fixed points of H.

Exact bound state solutions of the Dirac equation for the Kratzer potential in the presence of a tensor potential are studied by using the Laplace transform approach for the cases of spin- and pseudo-spin symmetry. The energy spectrum is obtained in the closed form for the relativistic as well as non-relativistic cases including the Coulomb potential. It is seen that our analytical results are in agreement with the ones given in the literature. The numerical results are also given in a table for different p...
Quasi-Cartan companions of elliptic cluster algebras
Velioğlu, Kutlucan; Seven, Ahmet İrfan; Department of Mathematics (2016)
There is an analogy between combinatorial aspects of cluster algebras and diagrams corresponding to skew-symmetrizable matrices. In this thesis, we study quasi-Cartan companions of skew-symmetric matrices in the mutation-class of exceptional elliptic diagrams. In particular, we establish the existence of semipositive admissible quasi-Cartan companions for these matrices and exhibit some other invariant properties.
Quadratically convergent algorithm for orbital optimization in the orbital-optimized coupled-cluster doubles method and in orbital-optimized second-order Moller-Plesset perturbation theory
Bozkaya, Ugur; Turney, Justin M.; Yamaguchi, Yukio; Schaefer, Henry F.; Sherrill, C. David (2011-09-14)
Using a Lagrangian-based approach, we present a more elegant derivation of the equations necessary for the variational optimization of the molecular orbitals (MOs) for the coupled-cluster doubles (CCD) method and second-order Moller-Plesset perturbation theory (MP2). These orbital-optimized theories are referred to as OO-CCD and OO-MP2 (or simply "OD" and "OMP2" for short), respectively. We also present an improved algorithm for orbital optimization in these methods. Explicit equations for response density ...
Polyamide 66 Binary and Ternary Nanocomposites: Mechanical and Morphological Properties
Mert, Miray; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2010-10-05)
Polyamide 66 (PA 66)/impact modifier blends and polyamide/organoclay binary and PA 66/organoclay/impact modifier ternary nanocomposites were prepared by the melt-compounding method, and the effects of the mixing sequences on the morphology and mechanical and flow properties were investigated. Lotader AX8840 and Lotader AX8900 were used as impact modifiers. The concentrations of the impact modifiers and the organoclay (Cloisite 25A) were maintained at 2 and 5 wt %, respectively. Both the binary and ternary n...
