Geometrical Phases And Symmetries In Dissipative Systems, Adam S. Landsberg

#### Geometrical Phases And Symmetries In Dissipative Systems, Adam S. Landsberg

*WM Keck Science Faculty Papers*

A geometrical phase is constructed for dissipative dynamical systems possessing continuous symmetries. It emerges as the natural analog of the holonomy associated with the adiabatic variation of parameters in quantum-mechanical and classical Hamiltonian systems. In continuous media, the physical manifestation of this phase is a spatial shift of a wave pattern, typically a translation or rotation. An illustration associated with pattern formation in fluids is provided.

Recoil Effects And Cp Violation In Neutron Scattering, Vladimir Gudkov

#### Recoil Effects And Cp Violation In Neutron Scattering, Vladimir Gudkov

*Faculty Publications*

The problem of the imitation of *CP* violation in neutron scattering is discussed. The thermal motion of nuclei cannot contribute to symmetry-violating effects. The influence of the nuclear depolarization due to neutron scattering is estimated.

Multi-Ball Collisions, Terry L. Smith, Jay S. Huebner

#### Multi-Ball Collisions, Terry L. Smith, Jay S. Huebner

*Terry L. Smith*

Explanation to use the "double-ball" demonstration as a model for the supernova core bounce.

Quantum Action Variable Description Of Bound And Scattering States , Mirley K. Balasubramanya

#### Quantum Action Variable Description Of Bound And Scattering States , Mirley K. Balasubramanya

*Retrospective Theses and Dissertations*

We present generalized definitions of the classical and quantum radial action variables for both bound and scattering states of a particle moving in the Yukawa potential. The classical action variable is defined as an integral over a contour in the complex radial coordinate plane of the classical momentum function. The quantum action variable is similarly defined as an integral over the same contour of the quantum momentum function. The extension of these definitions of the action variable to other central potentials is discussed.
