      Context. The spatial variations of stellar population properties within a galaxy are intimately related to their formation process. Therefore, spatially resolved studies of galaxies are essential to uncover their formation ...
    • Jarzynski equality for conditional stochastic work 

      Sone, Akira; Deffner, Sebastian
      It has been established that the inclusive work for classical, Hamiltonian dynamics is equivalent to the two-time energy measurement paradigm in isolated quantum systems. However, a plethora of other notions of quantum ...
    • Jarzynski Equality for Driven Quantum Field Theories 

      Bartolotta, Anthony; Deffner, Sebastian (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-02-27)
      The fluctuation theorems, and in particular, the Jarzynski equality, are the most important pillars of modern nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. We extend the quantum Jarzynski equality together with the two-time ...
    • Jarzynski Equality in PT-Symmetric Quantum Mechanics 

      Deffner, Sebastian; Saxena, Avadh (American Physical Society (APS), 2015-04-13)
      We show that the quantum Jarzynski equality generalizes to PT-symmetric quantum mechanics with unbroken PT symmetry. In the regime of broken PT symmetry, the Jarzynski equality does not hold as also the CPT norm is not ...

    • K2 Ultracool Dwarfs Survey – VI. White light superflares observed on an L5 dwarf and flare rates of L dwarfs 

      Paudel, R. R.; Gizis, J. E.; Mullan, D. J.; Schmidt, S. J.; Burgasser, A. J.; Williams, P. K. G. (Oxford University Press, 2020-05-06)
      KeplerK2 long cadence data are used to study white light flares in a sample of 45 L dwarfs. We identified 11 flares on 9 L dwarfs with equivalent durations of (1.3–198) h and total (UV/optical/IR) energies of ≥0.9 × 10³² ...
    • kCARTA : A fast pseudo line-by-line radiative transfer algorithm with analytic Jacobians, fluxes, Non-Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium and scattering for the infrared

      A fast pseudo-monochromatic radiative transfer package using a Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) compressed atmospheric optical depth database has been developed, primarily for use with hyperspectral sounding instruments. ...
    • Kibble-Zurek scaling in quantum speed limits for shortcuts to adiabaticity 

      Puebla, Ricardo; Deffner, Sebastian; Campbell, Steve (2020-06-08)
      Geometric quantum speed limits quantify the trade-off between the rate with which quantum states can change and the resources that are expended during the evolution. Counterdiabatic driving is a unique tool from shortcuts ...
    • Kibble-Zurek scaling of the irreversible entropy production 

      Deffner, Sebastian (American Physical Society (APS), 2017-11-16)
      If a system is driven at finite rate through a phase transition by varying an intensive parameter, the order parameter shatters into finite domains. The Kibble-Zurek mechanism predicts the typical size of these domains, ...
    • A Kiloparsec-scale Internal Shock Collision in the Jet of a Nearby Radio Galaxy 

      Meyer, Eileen T.; Georganopoulos, Markos; Sparks, William B.; Perlman, Eric; Marel, Roeland P. van der; Anderson, Jay; Sohn, Sangmo Tony; Biretta, John; Norman, Colin; Chiaberge, Marco (Nature Research, 2015-05-27)
      Jets of highly energized plasma with relativistic velocities are associated with black holes ranging in mass from a few times that of the Sun to the billion-solar-mass black holes at the centres of galaxies. A popular but ...
