Dual metrics and nongeneric supersymmetries for a class of Siklos space-times

Baleanu, D
Baskal, S
The presence of Killing-Yano tensors implies the existence of nongeneric supercharges in spinning point particle theories on curved backgrounds. Dual metrics axe defined through their associated nondegenerate Killing tensors of valence two. Siklos space-times, which are the only nontrivial Einstein spares conformal to nonflat pp-waves are investigated with regard to the existence of their corresponding Killing and Killing-Yano, tensors. It is found that a class of Siklos space-times admit dual metrics and nongeneric supercharges.


Autoparallel orbits in Kerr Brans-Dicke spacetimes
Cebeci, H; Dereli, T; Tucker, RW (2004-01-01)
The bounded orbital motion of a massive spinless test particle in the background of a Kerr Brans-Dicke geometry is analysed in terms of worldlines that are auto-parallels of different metric compatible spacetime connections. In one case the connection is that of Levi-Civita with zero-torsion. In the second case the connection has torsion determined by the gradient of the Brans-Dicke background scalar field. The calculations permit one in principle to discriminate between these possibilities.

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...
Equivariant Reduction of Gauge Theories over Fuzzy Extra Dimensions
Kürkcüoğlu, Seçkin (IOP Publishing, 2012-2-8)
In SU(N) Yang-Mills theories on a manifold M, which are suitably coupled to a set of scalars, fuzzy spheres may be generated as extra dimensions by spontaneous symmetry breaking. This process results in gauge theories over the product space of the manifold M and the fuzzy spheres with smaller gauge groups. Here we present the SU(2)- and SU(2) x SU(2)-equivariant parametrization of U(2) and U(4) gauge fields on S-F(2), and S-F(2), x S-F(2), respectively and outline the dimensional reduction of these theories...
Linearization instability for generic gravity in AdS spacetime
Altas, Emel; Tekin, Bayram (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-1-24)
In general relativity, perturbation theory about a background solution fails if the background spacetime has a Killing symmetry and a compact spacelike Cauchy surface. This failure, dubbed as linearization instability, shows itself as non-integrability of the perturbative infinitesimal deformation to a finite deformation of the background. Namely, the linearized field equations have spurious solutions which cannot be obtained from the linearization of exact solutions. In practice, one can show the failure o...
Hamiltonian for a particle in a magnetic field on a curved surface in orthogonal curvilinear coordinates
Shikakhwa, M. S.; Chair, N. (2016-08-19)
The Schrodinger Hamiltonian of a spin-less particle as well as the Pauli Hamiltonian with spin-orbit coupling included of a spin one-half particle in electromagnetic fields that are confined to a curved surface embedded in a three-dimensional space spanned by a general Orthogonal Curvilinear Coordinate are constructed. A new approach, based on the physical argument that upon squeezing the particle to the surface by a potential, then it is the physical gauge-covariant kinematical momentum operator (velocity ...
