The responses of specially designed directional couplers built with Ti:LiNbO3 in-diffused guides were measured and found to be substantially better predicted by an improved version of the coupled-mode theory than by the traditional one.

    A simplified Ginzburg-Landau theory is developed to study coupling of a first-order gas-liquid phase transition (FOPT) with a second-order orientational phase transition (SOPT). We show analytically that, due to the coupling between the two phase transitions, the SOPT may exhibit a FOPT-like...

    A formula for computing approximate leakage of population from an initially prepared electronic state with a nonequilibrium nuclear distribution to a second nonadiabatically coupled electronic state is derived and applied. The formula is a nonequilibrium generalization of the familiar golden...

    The so-called energy-corrected coupled-cluster method with singles and doubles (CCSD), which is closely related to the recently proposed method of moments of Kowalski and Piecuch, accounts for the nondynamic correlation effects, which are missing in the standard single-reference CCSD, by...

    This contribution explains how quasipotentials which characterize the N→∞-asymptotics of fluctuating macrovariables in systems of N globally coupled subsystems can be constructed, and how they can be used for the detection and description of noise induced phase transitions. For the...

    We study the role of continuous measurement in the quantum to classical transition for a particle in a harmonic well whose motion in the well is coupled to the internal spin. This system provides a rich illustration of the quantum to classical transition in weakly measured coupled systems. We...

    We present the analytic gradient theory and its pilot implementation for the multireference Brillouin-Wigner coupled cluster (BWCC) method and for the state-universal multireference coupled cluster method. The analytic gradient has been derived for three cases: (i) BWCC method without a...

    High-spin isomers were systematically studied in N = 83 isotones. These isomers are of stretch coupled configurations and have oblate shapes. High-spin isomers can be categorized to be high-spin shape isomer, as they are caused by the sudden shape change from near spherical to an oblate shape....

    The normal coupled cluster method is implemented to high orders in a systematic approximation scheme, and is shown to give accurate ground- and excited-state properties of anisotropic Heisenberg antiferromagnets and their quantum phase transitions at zero temperature.
