In this paper we describe the potential of the enhanced X-ray Timing and Polarimetry (eXTP) mission for studies related to accretion flows in the strong field gravity regime around both stellar-mass and supermassive black-holes. eXTP has the unique capability of using advanced “spectral-timing-polarimetry” techniques to analyze the rapid variations with three orthogonal diagnostics of the flow and its geometry, yielding unprecedented insight into the inner accreting regions, the effects of strong field gravity on the material within them and the powerful outflows which are driven by the accretion process.

Singular potentials and moving boundaries in 3D
Yuce, C (Elsevier BV, 2004-02-16)
In this Letter, the problem of a spinless particle under the time-dependent harmonic oscillator potential and a singular potential with a moving boundary is studied in the spherical coordinates. Some transformations are used to transform the moving boundary conditions to the fixed boundary conditions. An exact solution is constructed.
Precision Measurement of the (e(+) + e(-)) Flux in Primary Cosmic Rays from 0.5 GeV to 1 TeV with the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station
Aguilar, M.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2014-11-26)
We present a measurement of the cosmic ray (e(+) + e(-)) flux in the range 0.5 GeV to 1 TeV based on the analysis of 10.6 million (e(+) + e(-)) events collected by AMS. The statistics and the resolution of AMS provide a precision measurement of the flux. The flux is smooth and reveals new and distinct information. Above 30.2 GeV, the flux can be described by a single power law with a spectral index gamma = -3.170 +/- 0.008(stat + syst) +/- 0.008(energy scale).
Dynamical correlations in quasi-one-dimensional electron gas
Bulutay, C; Tanatar, B (IOP Publishing, 1998-09-01)
We study the short-range correlations in a quasi-one-dimensional electron gas within the dynamical version of the self-consistent field theory. The static structure factor exhibits a peak structure at low densities. The zero-frequency limit of the dynamic local-field factor has structure not encountered in the previous applications of the present method. The large oscillations at low densities observed in the pair-correlation function indicates a transition to a partially ordered state.
Measurement of the Azimuthal Angle Dependence of Inclusive Jet Yields in Pb plus Pb Collisions at root s(NN)=2.76 TeV with the ATLAS Detector
Aad, G.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2013-10-09)
Measurements of the variation of inclusive jet suppression as a function of relative azimuthal angle, Delta phi, with respect to the elliptic event plane provide insight into the path-length dependence of jet quenching. ATLAS has measured the Delta phi dependence of jet yields in 0.14 nb(-1) of root s(NN) = 2.76 TeV Pb + Pb collisions at the LHC for jet transverse momenta p(T) > 45 GeV in different collision centrality bins using an underlying event subtraction procedure that accounts for elliptic flow. The...
Hermitian and gauge-covariant Hamiltonians for a particle in a magnetic field on cylindrical and spherical surfaces
Shikakhwa, M. S.; Chair, N. (IOP Publishing, 2017-01-01)
We construct the Hermitian Schrodinger Hamiltonian of spin-less particles and the gauge-covariant Pauli Hamiltonian of spin one-half particles in a magnetic field, which are confined to cylindrical and spherical surfaces. The approach does not require the use of involved differential-geometrical methods and is intuitive and physical, relying on the general requirements of Hermicity and gauge-covariance. The surfaces are embedded in the full three-dimensional space and confinement to the surfaces is achieved...
