In the context of a propagating surface of discontinuity in a thermomechanical medium, this brief communication establishes a relationship between the supplies of material momentum, linear momentum, energy and entropy. The relationship is equivalent to the jump condition in energy and is also framed in the context of a driving traction.

    We report fully nonadiabatic calculations of all rotationless bound states of HT+ molecular ion (t+p+e-) carried out in the framework of the variational method. We show that, in all the states, except the two highest ones, the bond in the system can be described as covalent. In the highest two...

    Energy spectrum and degeneracy associated with bound states of monopoles and dyons in non-Abelian gauge theory has been investigated and it is shown that energy levels expand due to the presence of additional degeneracies. Splitting of energy level of dyonium in presence of external magnetic and...

    We study subgap spectra of fermions localized within vortex cores in 3He-B. We develop an analytical treatment of the low-energy states and consider the characteristic properties of fermion spectra for different types of vortices. Due to the removed spin degeneracy the spectra of all singly...

    A basis of polarization-dressed states is proposed for atomic energy levels degenerate in the total angular momentum projections in the case of interaction with elliptically polarized light. It is shown that instead of selection rules for the magnetic quantum number, the interaction in this...

    With HOD initially in its vibrational ground state, we present a new detailed interpretation of the OD/OH branching ratio (∼3) in the photoinduced process D+OH←HOD→H+OD, in the first absorption band. Using semiclassical arguments, we show that the branching ratio has little to...

    Quasiclassical trajectory and quantum-mechanical scattering calculations are reported for the O(³P)+H2(X ¹Σg + ; υ=1-3, j=0)→?OH(X ²II)+H(²S) reaction at energies close to the reaction threshold. The dynamics of the reaction have been investigated for zero total angular...

    It is considered that the effective interaction between any two quarks of a baryon can be approximately described by a simple harmonic potential. The problem is firstly solved in Cartesian coordinates in order to find the energy levels irrespective of their angular momenta. Then, the problem is...
