Abstract be a positive map from the$$\phi $$ $\varphi $ matrices$$n\times n$$ $n\times n$ to the$$\mathcal {M}_n$$ ${M}_{n}$ matrices$$m\times m$$ $m\times m$ . It is known that$$\mathcal {M}_m$$ ${M}_{m}$ is 2positive if and only if for all$$\phi $$ $\varphi $ and all strictly positive$$K\in \mathcal {M}_n$$ $K\in {M}_{n}$ ,$$X\in \mathcal {M}_n$$ $X\in {M}_{n}$ . This inequality is not generally true if$$\phi (K^*X^{1}K) \geqslant \phi (K)^*\phi (X)^{1}\phi (K)$$ $\varphi \left({K}^{\ast}{X}^{1}K\right)\u2a7e\varphi {\left(K\right)}^{\ast}\varphi {\left(X\right)}^{1}\varphi \left(K\right)$ is merely a Schwarz map. We show that the corresponding tracial inequality$$\phi $$ $\varphi $ holds for a wider class of positive maps that is specified here. We also comment on the connections of this inequality with various monotonicity statements that have found wide use in mathematical physics, and apply it, and a close relative, to obtain some new, definitive results.$${{\,\textrm{Tr}\,}}[\phi (K^*X^{1}K)] \geqslant {{\,\textrm{Tr}\,}}[\phi (K)^*\phi (X)^{1}\phi (K)]$$ $\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{Tr}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\left[\varphi \left({K}^{\ast}{X}^{1}K\right)\right]\u2a7e\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{Tr}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\left[\varphi {\left(K\right)}^{\ast}\varphi {\left(X\right)}^{1}\varphi \left(K\right)\right]$ 
Abstract We present a proof of concept for a spectrally selective thermal midIR source based on nanopatterned graphene (NPG) with a typical mobility of CVDgrown graphene (up to 3000
), ensuring scalability to large areas. For that, we solve the electrostatic problem of a conducting hyperboloid with an elliptical wormhole in the presence of an$$\hbox {cm}^2\,\hbox {V}^{1}\,\hbox {s}^{1}$$ ${\text{cm}}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{\text{V}}^{1}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{\text{s}}^{1}$inplane electric field. The localized surface plasmons (LSPs) on the NPG sheet, partially hybridized with graphene phonons and surface phonons of the neighboring materials, allow for the control and tuning of the thermal emission spectrum in the wavelength regime from to 12$$\lambda =3$$ $\lambda =3$ m by adjusting the size of and distance between the circular holes in a hexagonal or square lattice structure. Most importantly, the LSPs along with an optical cavity increase the emittance of graphene from about 2.3% for pristine graphene to 80% for NPG, thereby outperforming stateoftheart pristine graphene light sources operating in the nearinfrared by at least a factor of 100. According to our COMSOL calculations, a maximum emission power per area of$$\upmu$$ $\mu $ W/$$11\times 10^3$$ $11\times {10}^{3}$ at$$\hbox {m}^2$$ ${\text{m}}^{2}$ K for a bias voltage of$$T=2000$$ $T=2000$ V is achieved by controlling the temperature of the hot electrons through the Joule heating.

Abstract We have observed a significant enhancement in the energy deposition by 25–
photons in a$$100~\textrm{GeV}$$ $100\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{GeV}$ thick tungsten crystal oriented along its$$1~\textrm{cm}$$ $1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{cm}$ lattice axes. At$$\langle 111 \rangle $$ $\u27e8111\u27e9$ , this enhancement, with respect to the value observed without axial alignment, is more than twofold. This effect, together with the measured huge increase in secondary particle generation is ascribed to the acceleration of the electromagnetic shower development by the strong axial electric field. The experimental results have been critically compared with a newly developed Monte Carlo adapted for use with crystals of multi$$100~\textrm{GeV}$$ $100\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{GeV}$ thickness. The results presented in this paper may prove to be of significant interest for the development of highperformance photon absorbers and highly compact electromagnetic calorimeters and beam dumps for use at the energy and intensity frontiers.$$X_0$$ ${X}_{0}$ 
Abstract Massive gully land consolidation projects, launched in China’s Loess Plateau, aim to restore 2667
agricultural lands in total by consolidating 2026 highly eroded gullies. This effort represents a social engineering project where the economic development and livelihood of the farming families are closely tied to the ability of these emergent landscapes to provide agricultural services. Whether these ‘time zero’ landscapes have the resilience to provide a sustainable soil condition such as soil organic carbon (SOC) content remains unknown. By studying two watersheds, one of which is a control site, we show that the consolidated gully serves as an enhanced carbon sink, where the magnitude of SOC increase rate (1.0$$\mathrm{km}^2$$ ${\mathrm{km}}^{2}$ ) is about twice that of the SOC decrease rate (− 0.5$$\mathrm{g\,C}/\mathrm{m}^2/\mathrm{year}$$ $g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}C/{m}^{2}/\mathrm{year}$ ) in the surrounding natural watershed. Over a 50year coevolution of landscape and SOC turnover, we find that the dominant mechanisms that determine the carbon cycling are different between the consolidated gully and natural watersheds. In natural watersheds, the flux of SOC transformation is mainly driven by the flux of SOC transport; but in the consolidated gully, the transport has little impact on the transformation. Furthermore, we find that extending the surface carbon residence time has the potential to efficiently enhance carbon sequestrationmore »$$\mathrm{g\,C}/\mathrm{m}^2/\mathrm{year}$$ $g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}C/{m}^{2}/\mathrm{year}$ 
Abstract We present the first unquenched latticeQCD calculation of the form factors for the decay
at nonzero recoil. Our analysis includes 15 MILC ensembles with$$B\rightarrow D^*\ell \nu $$ $B\to {D}^{\ast}\ell \nu $ flavors of asqtad sea quarks, with a strange quark mass close to its physical mass. The lattice spacings range from$$N_f=2+1$$ ${N}_{f}=2+1$ fm down to 0.045 fm, while the ratio between the light and the strangequark masses ranges from 0.05 to 0.4. The valence$$a\approx 0.15$$ $a\approx 0.15$b andc quarks are treated using the Wilsonclover action with the Fermilab interpretation, whereas the light sector employs asqtad staggered fermions. We extrapolate our results to the physical point in the continuum limit using rooted staggered heavylight meson chiral perturbation theory. Then we apply a modelindependent parametrization to extend the form factors to the full kinematic range. With this parametrization we perform a joint latticeQCD/experiment fit using several experimental datasets to determine the CKM matrix element . We obtain$$V_{cb}$$ ${V}_{\mathrm{cb}}$ . The first error is theoretical, the second comes from experiment and the last one includes electromagnetic and electroweak uncertainties, with an overall$$\left V_{cb}\right = (38.40 \pm 0.68_{\text {th}} \pm 0.34_{\text {exp}} \pm 0.18_{\text {EM}})\times 10^{3}$$ $\left({V}_{\mathrm{cb}}\right)=(38.40\pm 0.{68}_{\text{th}}\pm 0.{34}_{\text{exp}}\pm 0.{18}_{\text{EM}})\times {10}^{3}$ , which illustrates the tensions between the experimental data sets, and between theory and experiment.
