Recent assertions that guiding-center theory breaks down at second order for three-dimensional magnetic fields with nonzero torsion are argued to be incorrect.

    The role of torsion and a scalar field Ï• in gravitation, especially, in the presence of a Dirac field in the background of a particular class of the Riemann-Cartan geometry is considered here. Recently, a Lagrangian density with Lagrange multipliers has been proposed, which has been obtained...

    A review of the modern multiple field theory is given. The theory is derived from the classical two-field theory of linearized thermo-elasticity. Extensions of Maysel's formula are described. They allow formulating an optimal solution strategy using the Green function. Various applied problems...

    Symmetry considerations yield the general form, up to second order terms, for the deformation elastic energy of a nematic monolayer, composed by symmetric achiral molecules, on a rigid planar substrate. The deformation energy contains an elastic contribution linear in the deformation tensor,...

    When an elastomeric material is deformed and subjected to temperatures above some characteristic value T cr (near 100∘C for natural rubber), its macromolecular structure undergoes time and temperature-dependent chemical changes. The process continues until the temperature decreases below T...

    We present a noncommutative gauge theory with covariant star product on a space-time with torsion. In order to obtain the covariant star product one imposes some restrictions on the connection of the space-time. Then, a noncommutative gauge theory is developed applying this product to the case...

    MEMS devices made from single crystal silicon often contain rod-like structures that are operated in bending and/or torsion. The design of these devices usually relies upon simple mechanical theories that ignore the coupling between these two modes of operation. In this paper, we develop a...

    A new framework of non-local model for the strain energy density is proposed in this paper. The global strain energy density of the representative volume element is treated as a non-local variable and can be obtained through a special integral of the local strain energy density. The local strain...

    The modeling of nanopaddle bridges is studied in this article by proposing a lumped-parameter mathematical model which enables structural characterization in the resonant domain. The distributed compliance and inertia of all three segments composing a paddle bridge are taken into consideration...

  • Linear Connections on Light-like Manifolds. Dereli, T.; Koçak, Ş.; Limoncu, M. // Turkish Journal of Mathematics;2008, Vol. 32 Issue 2, p41 

    It is well-known that a torsion-free linear connection on a light-like manifold (M, g) compatible with the degenerate metric g exists if and only if Rad(TM) is a Killing distribution. In case of existence, there is an infinitude of connections with none distinguished. We propose a method to...
