Approximate analytical description of apparent horizons for initial data with momentum and spin

Altas, Emel
Tekin, Bayram
We construct analytical initial data for a slowly moving and rotating black hole for generic orientations of the linear momentum and the spin. We solve the Hamiltonian constraint approximately and work out the properties of the apparent horizon and show the dependence of its shape on the angle between the spin and the linear momentum. In particular, a dimple, whose location depends on the mentioned angle, arises on the two-sphere geometry of the apparent horizon. We exclusively work in the case of conformally flat initial metrics.

Implementation of coordinate transformations in periodic finite-element method for modeling rough surface scattering problems
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2016-05-01)
The coordinate transformation technique (with its current name of transformation electromagnetics) is applied to the finite-element method (FEM) with periodic boundary conditions for efficient Monte Carlo simulation of one-dimensional random rough surface scattering problems. In a unit cell of periodic structure, two coordinate transformations are used, one of which is a real transformation designed to model the rough surface with flat surface, and the other is a complex transformation used to design a perf...
Exact analytical solution of the internal friction associated with a geometric kink chain oscillating in an atmosphere of paraelastic interstitials and decorated by a dragging point defect
Oğurtanı, Tarık Ömer (American Physical Society (APS), 1989-8-15)
The partial differential equation which describes the geometric kink chain oscillating in an atmosphere of uniformly distributed paraelastic interstitials and, in addition, decorated by a dragging point defect at the midpoint, is solved exactly with use of the Laplace-transformation technique. The internal friction coefficient and the modulus defect are obtained in closed forms which indicate the existence of two separate peaks. The Cole-Cole diagrams are also investigated which show irrevocably the splitti...
Approximate Solutions of Dirac Equation with Hyperbolic-Type Potential
Arda, Altug; Sever, Ramazan (2015-09-01)
The energy eigenvalues of a Dirac particle for the hyperbolic-type potential field have been computed approximately. It is obtained a transcendental function of energy, F(E), by writing in terms of confluent Heun functions. The numerical values of energy are then obtained by fixing the zeros on "E-axis" for both complex functions Re[F(E)] and Im[F(E)].
Approximate analytical solutions to the double-stance dynamics of the lossy spring-loaded inverted pendulum
SHAHBAZI, Mohammad; Saranlı, Uluç; BABUSKA, Robert; LOPES, Gabriel A. D. (IOP Publishing, 2017-02-01)
This paper introduces approximate time-domain solutions to the otherwise non-integrable double-stance dynamics of the 'bipedal' spring-loaded inverted pendulum (B-SLIP) in the presence of nonnegligible damping. We first introduce an auxiliary system whose behavior under certain conditions is approximately equivalent to the B-SLIP in double-stance. Then, we derive approximate solutions to the dynamics of the new system following two different methods: (i) updated-momentum approach that can deal with both the...
Approximate analytic solutions to non-symmetric stance trajectories of the passive Spring-Loaded Inverted Pendulum with damping
Saranlı, Uluç; Ankaralı, Mustafa Mert (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-12-01)
This paper introduces an accurate yet analytically simple approximation to the stance dynamics of the Spring-Loaded Inverted Pendulum (SLIP) model in the presence of non-negligible damping and non-symmetric stance trajectories. Since the SLIP model has long been established as an accurate descriptive model for running behaviors, its careful analysis is instrumental in the design of successful locomotion controllers. Unfortunately, none of the existing analytic methods in the literature explicitly take dampi...
