Abstract for$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$ in (4, 8) that is drawn on an independent$$\kappa '$$ ${\kappa}^{\prime}$ LQG surface for$$\gamma $$ $\gamma $ . The results are similar in flavor to the ones from our companion paper dealing with$$\gamma ^2=16/\kappa '$$ ${\gamma}^{2}=16/{\kappa}^{\prime}$ for$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa }$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{\kappa}$ in (8/3, 4), where the loops of the CLE are disjoint and simple. In particular, we encode the combined structure of the LQG surface and the$$\kappa $$ $\kappa $ in terms of stable growthfragmentation trees or their variants, which also appear in the asymptotic study of peeling processes on decorated planar maps. This has consequences for questions that do a priori not involve LQG surfaces: In our paper entitled “$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$CLE Percolations ” described the law of interfaces obtained when coloring the loops of a independently into two colors with respective probabilities$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$p and . This description was complete up to one missing parameter$$1p$$ $1p$ . The results of the present paper about CLE on LQG allow us to determine its value in terms of$$\rho $$ $\rho $p and . It shows in particular that$$\kappa '$$ ${\kappa}^{\prime}$ and$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$ are related via a continuum analog of the EdwardsSokal coupling between$$\hbox {CLE}_{16/\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{16/{\kappa}^{\prime}}$ percolation and the$$\hbox {FK}_q$$ ${\text{FK}}_{q}$q state Potts model (which makes sense evenmore » 
Abstract The shear viscosity
of a quark–gluon plasma in equilibrium can be calculated analytically using multiple methods or numerically using the Green–Kubo relation. It has been realized, which we confirm here, that the Chapman–Enskog method agrees well with the Green–Kubo result for both isotropic and anisotropic twobody scatterings. We then apply the Chapman–Enskog method to study the shear viscosity of the parton matter from a multiphase transport model. In particular, we study the parton matter in the center cell of central and midcentral Au + Au collisions at 200$$\eta $$ $\eta $A GeV and Pb + Pb collisions at 2760A GeV, which is assumed to be a plasma in thermal equilibrium but partial chemical equilibrium. As a result of using a constant Debye mass or cross section for parton scatterings, the$$\sigma $$ $\sigma $ ratio increases with time (as the effective temperature decreases), contrary to the trend preferred by Bayesian analysis of the experimental data or pQCD results that use temperaturedependent Debye masses. At$$\eta /s$$ $\eta /s$ mb that enables the transport model to approximately reproduce the elliptic flow data of the bulk matter, the average$$\sigma =3$$ $\sigma =3$ of the parton matter in partial equilibrium is found to be very small, between one to two times$$\eta /s$$ $\eta /s$ .$$1/(4\pi )$$ $1/\left(4\pi \right)$ 
Abstract The best upper limit for the electron electric dipole moment was recently set by the ACME collaboration. This experiment measures an electron spinprecession in a cold beam of ThO molecules in their metastable
state. Improvement in the statistical and systematic uncertainties is possible with more efficient use of molecules from the source and better magnetometry in the experiment, respectively. Here, we report measurements of several relevant properties of the longlived $H\phantom{\rule{0.50em}{0ex}}{(}^{3}{\mathrm{\Delta}}_{1})$ state of ThO, and show that this state is a very useful resource for both these purposes. The $Q\phantom{\rule{0.50em}{0ex}}{(}^{3}{\mathrm{\Delta}}_{2})$Q state lifetime is long enough that its decay during the time of flight in the ACME beam experiment is negligible. The large electric dipole moment measured for theQ state, giving rise to a large linear Stark shift, is ideal for an electrostatic lens that increases the fraction of molecules detected downstream. The measured magnetic moment of theQ state is also large enough to be used as a sensitive comagnetometer in ACME. Finally, we show that theQ state has a large transition dipole moment to the state, which allows for efficient population transfer between the ground state $C\phantom{\rule{0.50em}{0ex}}{(}^{1}{\mathrm{\Pi}}_{1})$ and the $X\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}more\xbb$Q state via Stimulated Raman Adiabatic Passage (STIRAP). We demonstrate 90 % STIRAP transfer efficiency. In the course of these measurements, we also determine the magnetic moment of $XCQ$C state, the transition dipole moment, and branching ratios of decays from the $X\to C$C state. 
Abstract We perform pathintegral molecular dynamics (PIMD), ringpolymer MD (RPMD), and classical MD simulations of H
O and D$$_2$$ ${}_{2}$ O using the qTIP4P/F water model over a wide range of temperatures and pressures. The density$$_2$$ ${}_{2}$ , isothermal compressibility$$\rho (T)$$ $\rho \left(T\right)$ , and selfdiffusion coefficients$$\kappa _T(T)$$ ${\kappa}_{T}\left(T\right)$D (T ) of H O and D$$_2$$ ${}_{2}$ O are in excellent agreement with available experimental data; the isobaric heat capacity$$_2$$ ${}_{2}$ obtained from PIMD and MD simulations agree qualitatively well with the experiments. Some of these thermodynamic properties exhibit anomalous maxima upon isobaric cooling, consistent with recent experiments and with the possibility that H$$C_P(T)$$ ${C}_{P}\left(T\right)$ O and D$$_2$$ ${}_{2}$ O exhibit a liquidliquid critical point (LLCP) at low temperatures and positive pressures. The data from PIMD/MD for H$$_2$$ ${}_{2}$ O and D$$_2$$ ${}_{2}$ O can be fitted remarkably well using the TwoStateEquationofState (TSEOS). Using the TSEOS, we estimate that the LLCP for qTIP4P/F H$$_2$$ ${}_{2}$ O, from PIMD simulations, is located at$$_2$$ ${}_{2}$ MPa,$$P_c = 167 \pm 9$$ ${P}_{c}=167\pm 9$ K, and$$T_c = 159 \pm 6$$ ${T}_{c}=159\pm 6$ g/cm$$\rho _c = 1.02 \pm 0.01$$ ${\rho}_{c}=1.02\pm 0.01$ . Isotope substitution effects are important; the LLCP location in qTIP4P/F D$$^3$$ ${}^{3}$ O is estimated to be$$_2$$ ${}_{2}$ MPa,$$P_c = 176 \pm 4$$ ${P}_{c}=176\pm 4$ K, and$$T_c = 177 \pm 2$$ ${T}_{c}=177\pm 2$ g/cm$$\rho _c = 1.13 \pm 0.01$$ ${\rho}_{c}=1.13\pm 0.01$ . Interestingly, for the water model studied, differences in the LLCP location from PIMD and MD simulations suggest that nuclear quantum effectsmore »$$^3$$ ${}^{3}$ 
Abstract The free multiplicative Brownian motion
is the large$$b_{t}$$ ${b}_{t}$N limit of the Brownian motion on in the sense of$$\mathsf {GL}(N;\mathbb {C}),$$ $\mathrm{GL}(N\u037eC),$ distributions. The natural candidate for the large$$*$$ $\ast $N limit of the empirical distribution of eigenvalues is thus the Brown measure of . In previous work, the second and third authors showed that this Brown measure is supported in the closure of a region$$b_{t}$$ ${b}_{t}$ that appeared in the work of Biane. In the present paper, we compute the Brown measure completely. It has a continuous density$$\Sigma _{t}$$ ${\Sigma}_{t}$ on$$W_{t}$$ ${W}_{t}$ which is strictly positive and real analytic on$$\overline{\Sigma }_{t},$$ ${\overline{\Sigma}}_{t},$ . This density has a simple form in polar coordinates:$$\Sigma _{t}$$ ${\Sigma}_{t}$ where$$\begin{aligned} W_{t}(r,\theta )=\frac{1}{r^{2}}w_{t}(\theta ), \end{aligned}$$ $\begin{array}{c}{W}_{t}(r,\theta )=\frac{1}{{r}^{2}}{w}_{t}\left(\theta \right),\end{array}$ is an analytic function determined by the geometry of the region$$w_{t}$$ ${w}_{t}$ . We show also that the spectral measure of free unitary Brownian motion$$\Sigma _{t}$$ ${\Sigma}_{t}$ is a “shadow” of the Brown measure of$$u_{t}$$ ${u}_{t}$ , precisely mirroring the relationship between the circular and semicircular laws. We develop several new methods, based on stochastic differential equations and PDE, to prove these results.$$b_{t}$$ ${b}_{t}$
