We study the asymptotic behavior of a family of functional describing the formation of topologically induced boundary vortices in thin magnetic films. We obtain convergence results for sequences of minimizers and some classes of stationary points, and relate the limiting behavior to a finite dimensional problem, the renormalized energy associated to the vortices.

    A nonlinear master equation (NLME) is proposed based on general information measures. Classical and cut-off solutions of the NLME are considered. In the former case, the NLME exhibits uniquely defined stationary distributions. In the latter case, there are multiple stationary distributions. In...

    It is shown that white noise is an invariant measure for the Korteweg- deVries equation on $${\mathbb{T}}$$ . This is a consequence of recent results of Kappeler and Topalov establishing the well-posedness of the equation on appropriate negative Sobolev spaces, together with a result of...

There are two explanations of experimentally observed acceleration of plasma rotation in the direction of...
