The BMV conjecture for traces, which states that $\{\backslash rm\; Tr\}\backslash ,\; \{\backslash rm\; exp\}(\{\backslash sf\; A\}\backslash minus\; \backslash lambda\{\backslash sf\; B\})$ is the Laplace transform of a positive measure, is shown to be equivalent to two other statements: (i) The polynomial $\backslash lambda\; \backslash mapsto\{\backslash rm\; Tr\}(\{\backslash sf\; A\}+\; \backslash lambda\{\backslash sf\; B\})^p$...

A simple method is presented to numerically approximate the location of poles and branch point singularities of solutions to certain nonlinear differential equations. The general method uses a modified piecewise-Padetype of approximation. The formulas greatly simplify in the case of second order...

The second virial coefficient of water is calculated at low temperature by considering full quantum statistical mechanical effects. At low enough temperatures experimental results are limited and molecular models can be used for accurate extrapolation. In doing so, one must separate deficiencies...

Utilizing asymptotic PadÃ©-approximant methods, we estimate the three-loop order &MSmacr; coefficients of Î±Â³[sub s][log(Î¼Â²/mÂ²[sub b](Î¼)][sup k] terms [k = {0, 1,2,3}] within the b â†’ ul-&vmacr;[sub t] decay rate. Except for the coefficient of the k = 0 term, all other...

New upper and lower bounds to the van der Waals C6, C8, and C10 coefficients for hydrogen, noble gas, alkali, and alkaline earth atoms are determined by using PadÃ© approximants to bound the dynamic multipole polarizabilities. Also, the nonadditive, three-body coefficients involving dipole,...

Pade-approximant methods are used to extract information about leading positive zeros or poles of QCD and SQCD Î²-functions from the known terms of their perturbative series. For QCD, such methods are seen to corroborate the flavour-threshold behaviour obtained via lattice approaches for the...

New computational techniques for calculation of cumulative reaction probabilities, N(E), are suggested. They are based on the expression of N(E) through the imaginary part of the Green function G [Seideman and Miller, J. Chem. Phys. 96, 4412 (1992)]. We use three methods to overcome numerical...

The quasifractional approximation method is developed in a systematic manner. This method uses simultaneously the power series, and at a second point, the asymptotic expansion. The usual form of the approximants is two or more rational fractions, in terms of a suitable variable, combined with...

The Gorskyâ€“Braggâ€“Williams (GBW) theory has been modified to describe phase transitions caused by the ordering of two kinds of atoms in the even and the odd sublattices of the structures of icosahedral quasicrystals with the dodecahedral local order (DLO) and their approximants. The...
