    We give here a rigorous proof of the well known prediction of pair creation as it arises from the Dirac equation with an external time dependent potential. Pair creation happens with probability one if the potential changes adiabatically in time and becomes overcritical, which means that an...

    A vanishing viscosity method is formulated for two-dimensional transonic steady irrotational compressible fluid flows with adiabatic constant $$\gamma \in [1,3)$$ . This formulation allows a family of invariant regions in the phase plane for the corresponding viscous problem, which implies an...
