Killing-Yano Cotton currents

We discuss conserved currents constructed from the Cotton tensor and (conformal) Killing-Yano tensors (KYTs). We consider the corresponding charges generally and then exemplify with the four-dimensional Plebanski-Demianski metric where they are proportional to the sum of the squares of the electric and the magnetic charges. As part of the derivation, we also find the two conformal Killing-Yano tensors of the Plebanski-Demianski metric in the recently introduced coordinates of Podolsky and Vratny. The construction of asymptotic charges for the Cotton current is elucidated and compared to the three-dimensional construction in Topologically Massive Gravity. For the three-dimensional case, we also give a conformal superspace multiplet that contains the Cotton current in the bosonic sector. In a mathematical section, we derive potentials for the currents, find identities for conformal KYTs and for KYTs in torsionful backgrounds.


Differential quadrature method for time-dependent diffusion equation
Akman, Makbule; Tezer, Münevver; Department of Mathematics (2003)
This thesis presents the Differential Quadrature Method (DQM) for solving time-dependent or heat conduction problem. DQM discretizes the space derivatives giving a system of ordinary differential equations with respect to time and the fourth order Runge Kutta Method (RKM) is employed for solving this system. Stabilities of the ordinary differential equations system and RKM are considered and step sizes are arranged accordingly. The procedure is applied to several time dependent diffusion problems and the so...
More on Cotton flow
Kilicarslan, Ercan; Dengiz, Suat; Tekin, Bayram (2015-06-22)
Cotton flow tends to evolve a given initial metric on a three manifold to a conformally flat one. Here we expound upon the earlier work on Cotton flow and study the linearized version of it around a generic initial metric by employing a modified form of the DeTurck trick. We show that the flow around the flat space, as a critical point, reduces to an anisotropic generalization of linearized KdV equation with complex dispersion relations one of which is an unstable mode, rendering the flat space unstable und...
Lifting fibrations on algebraic surfaces to characteristic zero
Kaya, Celalettin; Önsiper, Mustafa Hurşit; Department of Mathematics (2005)
In this thesis, we study the problem of lifting fibrations on surfaces in characteristic p, to characteristic zero. We restrict ourselves mainly to the case of natural fibrations on surfaces with Kodaira dimension -1 or 0. We determine whether such a fibration lifts to characteristic zero. Then, we try to find the smallest ring over which a lifting is possible. Finally,in some favourable cases, we compare the moduli of liftings of the fibration to the moduli of liftings of the surface under consideration.
Cotton flow
Kişisel, Ali Ulaş Özgür; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür; Tekin, Bayram (IOP Publishing, 2008-8-5)
Using the conformally-invariant Cotton tensor, we define a geometric flow, the Cotton flow, which is exclusive to three dimensions. This flow tends to evolve the initial metrics into conformally flat ones, and is somewhat orthogonal to the Yamabe flow, the latter being a flow within a conformal class. We define an entropy functional, and study the flow of nine homogeneous spaces both numerically and analytically. In particular, we show that the arbitrarily deformed homogeneous 3-sphere flows into the round ...
Cosymmetry preserving finite-difference methods for convection equations in a porous medium
Karasözen, Bülent (2005-09-01)
The finite-difference discretizations for the planar problem of natural convection of incompressible fluid in a porous medium which preserve the cosymmetry property and discrete symmetries are presented. The equations in stream function and temperature are computed using staggered and non-staggered schemes in uniform and nonuniform rectangular grids. (c) 2004 IMACS. Published by Elsevier B.V.
