We rigorously establish the rate equations for vertical-cavity semiconductor optical amplifiers, starting from a general energy rate equation. Our results show that the conventional rate equation used so far in the literature is incorrect because of an inappropriate calculation of the mirror losses. Our calculations include the effect of amplified spontaneous emission and can be used to describe the properties of resonant-cavity-enhanced photodetectors. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.

    The continuum model that has reproduced the experimental observation of exponential shear localisation for straight-edge boundary conditions is adapted to the case of circular geometry. Essentially the same effect is found. However, the scenario of possible velocity profiles is much richer. Our...

    BGG-operators form sequences of invariant differential operators and the first of these is overdetermined. Interesting equations in conformal geometry described by these operators are those for Einstein scales, conformal Killing forms and conformal Killing tensors. We present a deformation...

    A passive scalar field was studied under the action of pumping, diffusion and advection by a 2D smooth flow with Lagrangian chaos. We present theoretical arguments showing that the scalar statistics are not conformally invariant and formulate a new effective semi-analytic algorithm to model...

    We present guaranteed, robust and computable a posteriori error estimates for nonconforming approximations of elliptic problems. Our analysis is based on a Helmholtz-type decomposition of the error expressed in terms of fluxes. Such a decomposition results in a gradient term and a...

    We realize the exceptional N=6 superconformal algebra, spanned by 32 fields, inside the Lie superalgebra of pseudodifferential symbols on the supercircle S1|3. Correspondingly, we obtain two nonisomorphic one-parameter families of irreducible representations of this superconformal algebra in a...
