We report here a fully reactive molecular dynamics study on the structural and dynamical aspects of the fluorination of graphene membranes (fluorographene). Our results show that fluorination tends to produce defective areas on the graphene membranes with significant distortions of carbon-carbon bonds. Depending on the amount of incorporated fluorine atoms, large membrane holes were observed due to carbon atom losses. These results may explain the broad distribution of the structural lattice parameter values experimentally observed. We have also investigated the effects of mixing hydrogen and fluorine atoms on the graphene functionalization. Our results show that, when in small amounts, the presence of hydrogen atoms produces a significant decrease in the rate of fluorine incorporation onto the membrane. On the other hand, when fluorine is the minority element, it produces a significant catalytic effect on the rate of hydrogen incorporation. We have also observed the spontaneous formation of new hybrid structures with different stable configurations (chair-like, zigzag-like and boat-like) which we named fluorographane. © 2013 IOP Publishing Ltd.

In this work, we find the expressions of continuum HQET four-fermion
operators in terms of lattice operators in perturbation theory. To do so, we
calculate the one--loop continuum--lattice HQET matching for the complete basis
of $\Delta B=2$ and $\Delta B=0$ operators (excluding penguin diagrams),
extending and completing previous studies. We have also corrected some errors
in previous evaluations of the matching for the operator $O_{LL}$. Our results
are relevant to the lattice computation of the values of unknown hadronic
matrix elements which enter in many very important theoretical predictions in
$B$--meson phenomenology: $B^{0}$-$\bar{B}^{0}$ mixing, $\tau_{B}$ and
$\tau_{B_{s}}$ lifetimes, SUSY effects in $\Delta B=2$ transitions and the
$B_{s}$ width difference $\Delta \Gamma_{B_{s}}$. We have reanalyzed our
lattice data for the $B_{B}$ parameter of the $B^{0}$-$\bar{B}^{0}$ mixing on
600 lattices of size $24^{3}\times 40$ at $\beta=6.0$ computed with the
SW-Clover and HQET lattice actions. We have used the correct lattice--continuum
matching factors and boosted perturbation theory with tadpole improved
heavy--light operators to reduce the systematic error in the evaluation of the
renormalization constants. Our best estimate of the renormalization scale
independent $B$--parameter is $\hat{B}_{B} = 1.29 \pm 0.08 \pm 0.06$...

At finite temperatures around the electroweak phase transition, the
thermodynamics of the MSSM can be described by a three-dimensional two Higgs
doublet effective theory. This effective theory has a phase where CP is
spontaneously violated. We study spontaneous CP violation with non-perturbative
lattice simulations, and analyse whether one could end up in this phase for any
physical MSSM parameter values.; Comment: 3 pages; talk at LATTICE99(electroweak), Pisa, Italy, and

We describe a systematic approach to generating approximate actions for the
lattice simulation of QCD. Three different tuning conditions are defined to
match approximate with true actions, and it is shown that these three
conditions become equivalent when the approximate and true actions are
sufficiently close. We present a detailed study of approximate actions in the
lattice Schwinger model together with an exploratory study of full QCD at
unphysical parameter values. We find that the technicalities of the approximate
action approach work quite well. However, very delicate tuning is necessary to
find an approximate action which gives good predictions for all physical
observables. Our best view of the immediate applicability of the methods we
describe is to allow high statistics studies of particular physical observables
after a low statistics full fermion simulation has been used to prepare the
stage.; Comment: 34 pages, 5 postscript figures, uses revtex and psfig

We discuss the chiral phase diagram in the parameter space of lattice QCD
with minimal-doubling fermions, which can be seen as lattice fermions with
flavored chemical potential terms. We study strong-coupling lattice QCD with
the Karsten-Wilczek formulation, which has one relevant parameter $\mu_{3}$ as
well as gauge coupling and a mass parameter. We find a nontrivial chiral phase
structure with a second-order phase transition between chiral symmetric and
broken phases. To capture the whole structure of the phase diagram, we study
the related lattice Gross-Neveu model. The result indicates that the chiral
phase transition also exists in the weak-coupling region. From these results we
speculate on the $\mu_{3}$-$g^{2}$ chiral phase diagram in lattice QCD with
minimal-doubling fermions, and discuss their application to numerical
simulations.; Comment: 34 pages, 9 figures; extended discussion on Lorentz symmetry for

We study whether applying lattice projectors on a vector-like Ginsparg-Wilson
Dirac operator is the only way to construct left-handed lattice fermions. Using
RG transformations we derive an equation for the generating functional on the
lattice, obtained by blocking from the continuum. We analyze how symmetries of
the continuum theory manifest themselves in this lattice generating functional
and how anomalies emerge. The formalism is applied to left-handed continuum
fermions and we derive two equations that characterize the corresponding
lattice symmetries. To analyze possible solutions, we directly block a
parameterized action for free continuum fermions to obtain the corresponding
lattice action. Subsequently we study parameter values where the continuum
action corresponds to left-handed fermions.; Comment: Contribution to Lattice 2007, based on two presentations by the

Dependence of a/r_c (inverse Sommer parameter in units of lattice spacing a)
on am_q (quark mass in lattice unit) has been observed in all lattice QCD
simulations with sea quarks including the ones with improved actions. How much
of this dependence is a scaling violation has remained an intriguing question.
Our approach has been to investigate the issue with an action with known
lattice artifacts, i.e., the standard Wilson quark and gauge action with
beta=5.6 and 2 degenerate flavors of sea quarks on 16^3 times 32 lattices. In
order to study in detail the sea quark mass dependence, measurements are
carried out at eight values of the PCAC quark mass values am_q from about 0.07
to below 0.015. Though scaling violations may indeed be present for relatively
large am_q, a consistent scenario at sufficiently small am_q seems to emerge in
the mass-independent scheme where for a fixed beta, 1/r_0 and sqrt{sigma} have
linear dependence on m_q as physical effects similar to the quark mass
dependence of the rho mass. We present evidence for this scenario and
accordingly extract the lattice scale (a = 0.0805(7) fm, a^{-1} = 2.45(2) GeV)
by chiral extrapolation to the physical point.; Comment: 7 pages, 5 figures, Talk given at the XXVI International Symposium on

In this work we calculate the corrections to the amputated Green's functions
of 4-fermion operators, in 1-loop Lattice Perturbation theory. One of the novel
aspects of our calculations is that they are carried out to O(a^2) (a: lattice
spacing). We employ the Wilson/clover action for massless fermions (also
applicable for the twisted mass action in the chiral limit) and a family of
Symanzik improved actions for gluons. Our calculations have been carried out in
a general covariant gauge. Results have been obtained for several popular
choices of values for the Symanzik coefficients. While our Green's function
calculations regard any pointlike 4-fermion operators which do not mix with
lower dimension ones, we pay particular attention to DF=2 operators, both
Parity Conserving and Parity Violating (F: flavour). We compute the
perturbative renormalization constants for a complete basis of 4-fermion
operators and we study their mixing pattern. For some of the actions considered
here, even O(a^0) results did not exist in the literature to date. The
correction terms which we calculate are essential ingredients for minimizing
the lattice artifacts which are present in non-perturbative evaluations of
renormalization constants with the RI'-MOM method. Our perturbative results...

We determine the chiral phase transition line in (2+1)-flavor QCD for small
values of the light quark chemical potential. We show that for small values of
the chemical potential the curvature of the phase transition line can be
deduced from an analysis of scaling properties of the chiral condensate and its
susceptibilities. To do so we extend earlier studies of the magnetic equation
of state in (2+1)-flavor QCD to finer lattice spacings, aT=1/8. We use these
universal scaling properties of the chiral order parameter to extract the
curvature of the transition line at two values of the cut-off, aT=1/4 and 1/8.
We find that cut-off effects are small for the curvature parameter and
determine the transition line in the chiral limit to leading order in the light
quark chemical potential. We obtain Tc(\mu_q)/Tc(0) = 1 - 0.059(2)(4)
(\mu_q/T)^2 +O(\mu_q^4).; Comment: 11 pages, 4 EPS files

The phononic band structures of two-dimensional solid phononic crystals with
different lattice and scatterer symmetry are studied numerically, with three
types of lattice (square, triangular and rectangular) and four different
scatterer shapes (circle, hexagon, square and rectangle) considered. XY and $Z$
vibration modes are investigated separately. Two types of phononic crystal are
considered: one composed of high-density rods embedded in a low-density matrix,
the other of low-density rods in a high-density matrix. In the former case,
lattice type and polarization being fixed, the broadest gaps are obtained when
the symmetry of the rods corresponds to that of the lattice (the shape of a rod
is identical with that of the first Brillouin zone); the largest gap width
values are observed in triangular lattice-based crystals (compared to those
based on square and rectangular lattices), the shape of the corresponding first
Brillouin zone being closest to a circle. These rules do not apply to
structures in which the density of the rod material is lower than that of the
matrix. In this case, when the symmetry of the rods corresponds to that of the
lattice, gaps either fail to appear at all, or are much narrower than in other
configurations. The effect of other material parameter values (such as the
longitudinal and transversal velocity values) on the considered relation proves
much lesser.; Comment: 13 pages...

We report the results of a calculation of the K --> pi pi matrix elements
relevant for the $\DIhalf$ rule and $\epe$ in quenched lattice QCD using domain
wall fermions at a fixed lattice spacing $a^{-1} \sim 2$ GeV. Working in the
three-quark effective theory, where only the u, d and s quarks enter and which
is known perturbatively to next-to-leading order, we calculate the lattice K
--> pi and K --> |0> matrix elements of dimension six, four-fermion operators.
Through lowest order chiral perturbation theory these yield K --> pi pi matrix
elements, which we then normalize to continuum values through a
non-perturbative renormalization technique. For the ratio of isospin amplitudes
|A_0|/|A_2| we find a value of $25.3 \pm 1.8$ (statistical error only) compared
to the experimental value of 22.2, with individual isospin amplitudes 10-20%
below the experimental values. For $\epe$, using known central values for
standard model parameters, we calculate $(-4.0 \pm 2.3) \times 10^{-4}$
(statistical error only) compared to the current experimental average of $(17.2
\pm 1.8) \times 10^{-4}$. Because we find a large cancellation between the I =
0 and I = 2 contributions to $\epe$, the result may be very sensitive to the
approximations employed. Among these are the use of: quenched QCD...

$\kappa$ in the range 0.156 - 0.158 corresponding to PCAC quark mass values
$am_q$ from about 0.07 to below 0.015. We analyze the static potential by
fitting to the familiar phenomenological form and extract $a/r_c$. Though
scaling violations may indeed be present for relatively large $am_q$, a
consistent scenario at sufficiently small $am_q$ seems to emerge in the
mass-independent scheme where for a fixed $\beta$, $1/r_0$ and $\sqrt{\sigma}$
have linear dependence on $m_q$ as physical effects similar to the quark mass
dependence of the rho mass. We present evidence for this scenario and
accordingly extract the lattice scale $a$ by chiral extrapolation to the
physical point. Care has been exercised to determine optimal values of all
fitting parameters and accuracy of the chiral extrapolation. An independent
determination of the scale $a$ by chiral extrapolation of the rho mass is

I compute the difference of vector and axial vector current correlators in
the weak coupling phase of (lattice-regulated) SU(3) gauge theory with two
flavors of symmetric-representation dynamical fermions. This is a walking
theory at the bare parameter values chosen for the simulation. Otherwise, it is
not a conventional technicolor candidate. The correlator difference shows
scaling behavior in the fermion mass, and vanishes in the fermion zero mass
limit. Consequences for the phenomenology of similar systems which might be
candidates for beyond Standard Model physics are discussed. I check my
methodology against ordinary QCD, by computing the Gasser-Leutwyler coefficient
L_10 and the charged - neutral pion mass difference from an approximate
parameterization of the correlator.; Comment: 18 pages, 12 figures

We compare three different methods to determine the lattice spacing in
lattice QCD and give results from calculations on the MILC ensembles of
configurations that include the effect of $u$, $d$ and $s$ sea quarks. It is
useful, for ensemble to ensemble comparison, to express the results as giving a
physical value for $r_1$, a parameter from the heavy quark potential. Combining
the three methods gives a value for $r_1$ in the continuum limit of
0.3133(23)(3) fm. Using the MILC values for $r_0/r_1$, this corresponds to a
value for the $r_0$ parameter of 0.4661(38) fm. We also discuss how to use the
$\eta_s$ for determining the lattice spacing and tuning the $s$-quark mass
accurately, by giving values for $m_{\eta_s}$ (0.6858(40) GeV) and $f_{\eta_s}$
(0.1815(10) GeV).; Comment: 15 pages

We study spin fluctuation (SF) mediated superconductivity (SC) in a
half-filled square lattice Hubbard model with the transfer matrices -t between
nearest neighbor sites and -t' between a half of next nearest neighbor sites
neighboring along only one of the <1,1> directions, considering application of
this model to organic kappa-(BEDT-TTF)2X compounds. Varying the t'/t value from
0 to 1, one can interpolate between a square and an equilateral triangular
lattice, the latter giving frustration to antiferromagnetically (AF) coupled
spin systems. Within the fluctuation exchange (FLEX) approximation, we
calculate chi(q,omega), Tc and the SC order parameter for various model
parameter values and find that both AF and SC are suppressed as one approaches
the frustration geometry or |(t'/t)-1| \to 0. The SC phase, however, extends
beyond the AF phase boundary fairly close to t'/t=1 for realistic U/t values.
The order parameter is of x2-y2-type for t'/t<1 and of xy-type for t'/t>1.; Comment: 4 pages, 5 eps figures, to appear in J. Phys. Soc. Jpn

detailed investigation of the effect of gaussian smearing on both source and
sink. We determine the optimum smearing parameter for various correlators for
each value of the Wilson hopping parameter. The effects of smearing on
observables are compared with those measured using local operators. We also
investigate systematic effects in the extraction of masses and decay constants
using different types of correlation functions for pion observables. We make
interesting observations regarding chiral extrapolations and finite volume

We briefly report our calculation of the 2-loop coefficient of the coupling
constant renormalization function Z_g in lattice perturbation theory. The
quantity under study is defined through g_0 = Z_g g, where g_0 (g) is the bare
(renormalized) coupling constant. The 2-loop expression for Z_g can be directly
related to the 3-loop bare beta-function beta_L(g_0).
Our calculation is performed using overlap fermions and Wilson gluons, and
the background field technique has been chosen for convenience. Our results
depend explicitly on the number of fermion flavors (N_f) and colors (N). Since
the dependence of Z_g on the overlap parameter rho cannot be extracted
analytically, we tabulate our results for different values of rho in the

We considered the lattice electroweak theory at realistic values of $\alpha$
and $\theta_W$ and for large values of the Higgs mass. We investigated
numerically the properties of topological objects that are identified with
quantum Nambu monopoles. We have found that the action density near the Nambu
monopole worldlines exceeds the density averaged over the lattice in the
physical region of the phase diagram. Moreover, their percolation probability
is found to be an order parameter for the transition between the symmetric and
the broken phases. Therefore, these monopoles indeed appear as real physical
objects. However, we have found that their density on the lattice increases
with increasing ultraviolet cutoff. Thus we conclude, that the conventional
lattice electroweak theory is not able to predict the density of Nambu
monopoles. This means that the description of Nambu monopole physics based on
the lattice Weinberg - Salam model with finite ultraviolet cutoff is
incomplete. We expect that the correct description may be obtained only within
the lattice theory that involves the description of TeV - scale physics.; Comment: LATEX

channel. We calculate the $N\Omega$ potential through the equal-time
Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter wave function in 2+1 flavor lattice QCD with the
renormalization group improved Iwasaki gauge action and the nonperturbatively
$\mathcal{O}(a)$ improved Wilson quark action at the lattice spacing $a\simeq
0.12$ fm on a (1.9 fm)$^{3}\times$ 3.8 fm lattice. The $ud$ and $s$ quark
masses in our study correspond to $m_{\pi}= 875(1)$ MeV and $m_{K}= 916(1)$
MeV. At these parameter values, the central potential in the S-wave with the
spin 2 shows attractions at all distances.By solving the Schr\"{o}dinger
equation with this potential, we find one bound state whose binding energy is

X-ray powder diffraction measurements, at 300 K, and differential thermal analysis (DTA) were made on sixteen polycrystalline samples of Cu2-II-IV-S4(Se4) (II: Mn, Fe, Co; IV: Si, Ge, Sn) magnetic semiconductor compounds. The diffraction patterns were analyzed to determine lattice parameter values. The results showed that ten have tetragonal stannite I42m structure, one has tetragonal pseudo-cubic P4 structure, four an orthorhombic wurtz-stannite Pmn21 and two an orthorhombic pseudo-cubic F222 structure. When the values of the effective parameter ae = (V/N)1/3 are plotted against its molecular weight W, it was found that the tetragonal and orthorhombic materials lie on the same straight line. The peaks on the DTA measurements were used to determine the type of melting as well as the melting temperature. The resulting data together with the Lindemann relation were used to estimate values for the Debye temperature θD as well as for the sound velocity in the material vs.
