    A theory is developed for the one-dimensional nonlinear multimode simulation of a Cerenkov maser of special configuration (antenna-amplifier [1, 2]) where a tubular relativistic electron beam propagates alonga circular waveguide with a dielectric rod. The operating mode is the fundamental...

    The radiation produced by two interacting relativistic point charges is considered. Under an appropriate approximation the radiation of the system as a whole (interference effects included) is expressed as a function of the relative velocity.

    A relativistic electron beam propagating through dense gas may evolve into a variety of current density profiles J[sub b] (r) depending on the beam temperature T and plasma current profile J[sub p] (r). Four broad classes of equilibria are discernible in particle simulations: (1) Bennett-like or...

    Analytic methods are used to determine the effect of a nearby ground plane on the trajectory of a relativistic electron beam passing through dense gas. The beam is shown to respond to the ground plane in one of two distinct modes, determined by beam current and energy. Low-power beams deflect...

    Two new exact analytical solutions to Einstein’s field equations representing static fluid spheres with anisotropic pressures are presented. One solution has a maximum value of mass of about 0.42 times the radius of the fluid sphere, dictated by causality and the corresponding values for...

  • The high-frequency limit in general relativity. Burnett, Gregory A. // Journal of Mathematical Physics;Jan1989, Vol. 30 Issue 1, p90 

    A precise characterization of the high-frequency limit in general relativity (vacuum space-times) is presented. The averaging schemes used in earlier works are avoided by the use of weak limits, giving the characterization the advantage that the high-frequency limit can be rigorously analyzed....

    In this paper a kink solution to the vacuum Einstein equations with cosmological constant Λ>0 is discussed. The solution is well-defined on the whole space-time manifold. An appropriate coordinate transformation shows the solution to be locally the same as the de Sitter solution. Globally,...

    In the framework of a manifestly covariant quantum theory on space-time, it is shown that the ground state mass of a relativistic two-body system with O(3,1) symmetric potential is lower when represented by a wave function with support in an O(2,1) invariant subspace of the spacelike region. The...

    A solution of Einstein’s equations for a stationary cylindrically symmetric perfect fluid is presented. The extent of the fluid is radially infinite but the proper density μ and pressure p are physically well behaved everywhere. On the axis μ and p are finite and positive. As the...
