    Periodic oscillations in the mass spectra of large clusters often indicate the existence of geometric shell structure. There is, in fact a unique relation between the period of the oscillations and the geometry of the cluster. Applying this rule to the data available for aluminum clusters in the...

    Quantum dots with three-dimensional isotropic harmonic confining potentials and up to 60 electrons are studied. The Dirac-Coulomb Hamiltonian serves as a framework, so that relativistic effects are included, and electron correlation is treated at a high level by the Fock-space coupled cluster...

    We propose a method to efficiently generate cluster states in solid-state charge qubits. We show that highly-entangled cluster states can be realized by a ‘one-touch’ entanglement operation using the gate bias. We also investigate the robustness of these cluster states for...

    We analyze the phenomenon of frequency clustering in a system of coupled phase oscillators. The oscillators, which in the absence of coupling have uniformly distributed natural frequencies, are coupled through a small-world network, built according to the Watts-Strogatz model. We study the time...

    Here we introduce a model of parametrically coupled chaotic maps on a one-dimensional lattice. In this model, each element has its internal self-regulatory dynamics, whereby at fixed intervals of time the nonlinearity parameter at each site is adjusted by feedback from its past evolution....

    We employ an adaptive parameter control technique based on detection of phase/lag synchrony between the elements of the system to dynamically modify the structure of a network of nonidentical, coupled Rössler oscillators. Two processes are simulated: adaptation, under which the initially...

    We report accurate variational and diffusion quantum Monte Carlo calculations for the size dependence of the vibrational frequency shift of HF molecules embedded in helium clusters with up to n=198 helium atoms. The frequency shift exhibits a strong initial size dependence and saturates at a...

    Methods employing high resolution HeI (584 Å) photoelectron spectroscopy have been applied to the tetrameric clusters of the group V elements, to resolve details of vibronic and spin–orbit structure in the first three electronic states of P+4, As+4, and Sb+4. Measured spacings of...

    HF vibrational frequency shifts for ArnHF (n=1–14) clusters have been determined for the first time using quantum 5D bound state calculations. Our results for n=1–4 clusters are in very good agreement with the available experimental data. The size dependence of the redshift is...
