Examines the effects of a basis set and correlation method on barrier height to linearity of bent triatomic CH [sub 2] and water in their ground electronic states. Use of a systematic ab initio investigation; Effect of slower convergence of energy at linear saddle point geometry than at bent equilibrium geometry; Effect of frozen core approximation in correlated calculations.

    We present the spectral properties of supersymmetric shape invariant potentials (SIPs). Although the folded spectrum is completely random, unfolded spectrum shows that energy levels are highly correlated and absolutely rigid. All the SIPs exhibit harmonic oscillator-type spectral statistics in...

    We summarize our study of a diatomic homonuclear molecule incident upon a potential barrier in one dimension [G.L. Goodvin and M.R.A. Shegelski. Phys. Rev. A, 71, 032719 (2005).]. We study various initial states for the molecule and allow transitions between vibrational states of the molecule...

    The long-time behaviour of an initially localized quantum state is shown to decay as t–3/2 for any potential well and any potential barrier. An example using a delta barrier is also calculated fully. The result is general yet the proof uses a simple method that is clear and accessible to...

    A laser with an active volume consisting of only a single-quantum wire in the one-dimensional (1D) ground state is demonstrated. The single wire is formed quantum mechanically at the T-shaped intersection of a 14 nm A1[sub 0.07]Ga[sub 0.93] As quantum well and a 6 nm GaAs quantum well, and is...

    Organisms moving in the same environment typically self-organize into coherently moving groups. This grouping can be successfully described using simple models of driven particles for collective motion. Here we discuss simulations of flocking and a principle related to driven motion in general...

    The purpose of the experiments described here was to determine the energy level spectrum of elementary primary Frenkel defects in the band gap of silicon, based on whether or not the rate of direct annihilation of these defects depends on their charge state. The results were obtained by jointly...
