    We present some results on the ultraviolet/infrared mixing for canonical field theory in three and four space-time dimensions. Special emphasis is given to the analysis of theories containing the Chern-Simons field and it is argued that for supersymmetric models the effect of the mixing is in...

    The supersymmetric extension of the five-dimensional Chern–Simons gravity is studied from the Hamiltonian point of view. This model containing the Gauss–Bonnet term quadratic in the Riemann curvature is the gauge theory of the supergroup SU(2,2/1). In the first order, the theory...

    This letter describes a calculation of a voltage sequence to obtain kinetic control of a particle for nonimpact electrostatic micromanipulation. The system consists of conductive objects: A manipulation probe, a spherical particle, and a substrate plate. The particle, initially adhering to the...

    Because of the predominance of large emittances, muon storage rings have a tendency to being rather sensitive to nonlinear effects. In this paper we study the effects of the nonlinearities due to the lattice elements’ fringe fields, which have a fundamentally different behavior from...

    Poisson’s equation is used to derive an expression for the characteristics of the Debye electron cloud around a multiply charged particle. It is shown that the limiting dimension of the Debye cloud (for an infinitely large charge of the particles) varies from 0.7 to 2.2 Debye radii,...

    An electrostatic system based on a plane capacitor is suggested to provide monochromatization of the beams of charged particles. In addition to monochromatization, this system also straightens the beam trajectory. The parameters of the system are calculated numerically within a broad range of...

    The overdamped motion of a particle controlled by a time-correlated random force in a spatially periodic potential is studied theoretically. The correlation time of the force is essentially assumed to be much greater than the time required for the particle to traverse one period of the...
