de Sitter group as a symmetry for optical decoherence

Baskal, S.
Kim, Y. S.
Stokes parameters form a Minkowskian 4-vector under various optical transformations. As a consequence, the resulting two-by-two density matrix constitutes a representation of the Lorentz group. The associated Poincare e sphere is a geometric representation of the Lorentz group. Since the Lorentz group preserves the determinant of the density matrix, it cannot accommodate the decoherence process through the decaying off-diagonal elements of the density matrix, which yields to an increase in the value of the determinant. It is noted that the O(3,2) de Sitter group contains two Lorentz subgroups. The change in the determinant in one Lorentz group can be compensated by the other. It is thus possible to describe the decoherence process as a symmetry transformation in the O(3,2) space. It is shown also that these two coupled Lorentz groups can serve as a concrete example of Feynman's rest of the universe.


The path integral quantization and the construction of the S-matrix operator in the Abelian and non-Abelian Chern-Simons theories
Fainberg, VY; Pak, Namık Kemal; Shikakhwa, MS (IOP Publishing, 1997-06-07)
The covariant path integral quantization of the theory of the scalar and spinor fields interacting through the Abelian and non-Abelian Chern-Simons gauge fields in 2 + 1 dimensions is carried out using the De Witt-Fadeev-Popov method. The mathematical ill-definiteness of the path integral of theories with pure Chern-Simons' fields is remedied by the introduction of the Maxwell or Maxwell-type (in the non-Abelian case) terms, which make the resulting theories super-renormalizable and guarantees their gauge-i...
An alternative simple solution of the sextic anharmonic oscillator and perturbed coulomb problems
IKHDAİR, SAMEER; Sever, Ramazan (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2007-10-01)
Utilizing an appropriate ansatz to the wave function, we reproduce the exact bound-state solutions of the radial Schrodinger equation to various exactly solvable sextic an-harmonic oscillator and confining perturbed Coulomb models in D-dimensions. We show that the perturbed Coulomb problem with eigenvalue E can be transformed to a sextic anharmonic oscillator problem with eigenvalue P. We also check the explicit relevance of these two related problems in higher-space dimensions. It is shown that exact solut...
Gardner's deformations of the Boussinesq equations
Karasu, Atalay (IOP Publishing, 2006-09-15)
Using the algebraic method of Gardner's deformations for completely integrable systems, we construct recurrence relations for densities of the Hamiltonians for the Boussinesq and the Kaup-Boussinesq equations. By extending the Magri schemes for these equations, we obtain new integrable systems adjoint with respect to the initial ones and describe their Hamiltonian structures and symmetry properties.
Two approximation schemes to the bound states of the Dirac-Hulthen problem
IKHDAİR, SAMEER; Sever, Ramazan (IOP Publishing, 2011-09-02)
The bound-state (energy spectrum and two-spinor wavefunctions) solutions of the Dirac equation with the Hulthen potential for all angular momenta based on the spin and pseudospin symmetry are obtained. The parametric generalization of the Nikiforov-Uvarov method is used in the calculations. The orbital dependence (spin-orbit-and pseudospin-orbit-dependent coupling too singular 1/r(2)) of the Dirac equation are included to the solution by introducing a more accurate approximation scheme to deal with the cent...

Dincer, Furkan; KARAASLAN, MUHARREM; Colak, Sule; TETİK, ERKAN; AKGÖL, OĞUZHAN; ALTINTAŞ, OLCAY; Sabah, Cumali (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2016-03-30)
A multi-band perfect metamaterial absorber (MA) based on a cylindrical waveguide with polarization independency is numerically presented and investigated in detail. The proposed absorber has a very simple configuration, and it operates at flexible frequency ranges within the microwave frequency regime by simply tuning the dimensions of the structure. The maximum absorption values are obtained as 99.9%, 97.5%, 85.8%, 68.2% and 40.2% at the frequencies of 1.34 GHz, 2.15 GHz, 3.2 GHz, 4.31 GHz and 5.41 GHz, re...
