Internal waves and tidal interactions constitute powerful mechanisms for angular momentum exchanges in star-planet systems. In this lecture, we review the state of the art of their modelling and we discuss their impact on the evolution of stellar systems. In this context, we first show how internal waves are able to deeply modify the secular transport of angular momentum in stellar interiors in the whole Hertzsprung-Russelll diagram. Then, we show how tidal waves, as well as the related exchanges of angular momentum, strongly depend on the internal structure of stars and planets.

    Abstract  The stability of the Full Two-Body Problem is studied in the case where both bodies are non-spherical, but are restricted to planar motion. The mutual potential is expanded up to second order in the mass moments, yielding a highly symmetric yet non-trivial dynamical system. For...

    We compare three attempts that have been made to decompose the angular momentum of the electromagnetic field into components of an "orbital" and "spin" nature. All three expressions are different, and there seems to be no reason to prefer one to another. It appears, on the basis of classical...

    There is a growing interest these days for the field of quantum information and quantum computation (for which classical bits are replaced by qubits in dimension 2 and qudits in dimension d). This field is at the crossing of mathematics, informatics and quantum physics. In this work, bases of...

    Deformed shell-model calculations are performed to study the structure of the collective bands in 80,82Kr. In our microscopic model, the single particle orbits 1p3/2, 0f5/2, 1p1/2, and 0g9/2 constitute the configuration space with 56Ni as the inert core. A modified Kuo interaction for this basis...

    Energy spectrum and degeneracy associated with bound states of monopoles and dyons in non-Abelian gauge theory has been investigated and it is shown that energy levels expand due to the presence of additional degeneracies. Splitting of energy level of dyonium in presence of external magnetic and...
