Abstract ), 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. By generalizing Planck’s theory to any grey body and deriving the completely general nonlocal fluctuationdissipation theorem with nonlocal response of surface plasmons in the random phase approximation, we show that the coherence length of the graphene plasmons and the thermally emitted photons can be as large as 13$$V=23$$ $V=23$ m and 150$$\upmu$$ $\mu $ m, respectively, providing the opportunity to create phased arrays made of nanoantennas represented by the holes in NPG. The spatial phase variation of the coherence allows for beamsteering of the thermal emission in the range between$$\upmu$$ $\mu $ and$$12^\circ$$ ${12}^{\circ}$ by tuning the Fermi energy between$$80^\circ$$ ${80}^{\circ}$ eV and$$E_F=1.0$$ ${E}_{F}=1.0$ eV through the gate voltage. Our analysis of the nonlocal hydrodynamic response leads to the conjecture that the diffusion length and viscosity in graphene are frequencydependent. Using finitedifference time domain calculations, coupled mode theory, and RPA, we develop the model of a midIR light source based on NPG, which will pave the way to graphenebased optical midIR communication, midIR color displays, midIR spectroscopy, and virus detection.$$E_F=0.25$$ ${E}_{F}=0.25$ 
Abstract An Eulerian walk (or Eulerian trail) is a walk (resp. trail) that visits every edge of a graph
G at least (resp. exactly) once. This notion was first discussed by Leonhard Euler while solving the famous Seven Bridges of Königsberg problem in 1736. But what if Euler had to take a bus? In a temporal graph , with$$\varvec{(G,\lambda )}$$ $(G,\lambda )$ , an edge$$\varvec{\lambda : E(G)}\varvec{\rightarrow } \varvec{2}^{\varvec{[\tau ]}}$$ $\lambda :E\left(G\right)\to {2}^{\left[\tau \right]}$ is available only at the times specified by$$\varvec{e}\varvec{\in } \varvec{E(G)}$$ $e\in E\left(G\right)$ , in the same way the connections of the public transportation network of a city or of sightseeing tours are available only at scheduled times. In this paper, we deal with temporal walks, local trails, and trails, respectively referring to edge traversal with no constraints, constrained to not repeating the same edge in a single timestamp, and constrained to never repeating the same edge throughout the entire traversal. We show that, if the edges are always available, then deciding whether$$\varvec{\lambda (e)}\varvec{\subseteq } \varvec{[\tau ]}$$ $\lambda \left(e\right)\subseteq \left[\tau \right]$ has a temporal walk or trail is polynomial, while deciding whether it has a local trail is$$\varvec{(G,\lambda )}$$ $(G,\lambda )$ complete even if$$\varvec{\texttt {NP}}$$ $\mathrm{NP}$ . In contrast, in the general case, solving any of these problems is$$\varvec{\tau = 2}$$ $\tau =2$ complete, even under very strict hypotheses. We finally give$$\varvec{\texttt {NP}}$$ $\mathrm{NP}$ algorithms parametrized by$$\varvec{\texttt {XP}}$$ $\mathrm{XP}$ for walks, and by$$\varvec{\tau }$$ $\tau $ for trails and local trails, where$$\varvec{\tau +tw(G)}$$ $\tau +tw\left(G\right)$ refers to the treewidth of$$\varvec{tw(G)}$$ $tw\left(G\right)$ .$$\varvec{G}$$ $G$ 
Abstract A longstanding problem in mathematical physics is the rigorous derivation of the incompressible Euler equation from Newtonian mechanics. Recently, HanKwan and Iacobelli (Proc Am Math Soc 149:3045–3061, 2021) showed that in the monokinetic regime, one can directly obtain the Euler equation from a system of
N particles interacting in ,$${\mathbb {T}}^d$$ ${T}^{d}$ , via Newton’s second law through a$$d\ge 2$$ $d\ge 2$supercritical meanfield limit . Namely, the coupling constant in front of the pair potential, which is Coulombic, scales like$$\lambda $$ $\lambda $ for some$$N^{\theta }$$ ${N}^{\theta}$ , in contrast to the usual meanfield scaling$$\theta \in (0,1)$$ $\theta \in (0,1)$ . Assuming$$\lambda \sim N^{1}$$ $\lambda \sim {N}^{1}$ , they showed that the empirical measure of the system is effectively described by the solution to the Euler equation as$$\theta \in (1\frac{2}{d(d+1)},1)$$ $\theta \in (1\frac{2}{d(d+1)},1)$ . HanKwan and Iacobelli asked if their range for$$N\rightarrow \infty $$ $N\to \infty $ was optimal. We answer this question in the negative by showing the validity of the incompressible Euler equation in the limit$$\theta $$ $\theta $ for$$N\rightarrow \infty $$ $N\to \infty $ . Our proof is based on Serfaty’s modulatedenergy method, but compared to that of HanKwan and Iacobelli, crucially uses an improved “renormalized commutator” estimate to obtain the larger range for$$\theta \in (1\frac{2}{d},1)$$ $\theta \in (1\frac{2}{d},1)$ . Additionally, we show that for$$\theta $$ $\theta $ , one cannot, in general, expect convergence in the modulated energy notion of distance.$$\theta \le 1\frac{2}{d}$$ $\theta \le 1\frac{2}{d}$ 
Abstract Extensional flow properties of polymer solutions in volatile solvents govern many industriallyrelevant coating processes, but existing instrumentation lacks the environment necessary to control evaporation. To mitigate evaporation during drippingontosubstrate (DoS) extensional rheology measurements, we developed a chamber to enclose the sample in an environment saturated with solvent vapor. We validated the evaporationcontrolled DoS device by measuring a model high molecular weight polyethylene oxide (PEO) in various organic solvents both inside and outside of the chamber. Evaporation substantially increased the extensional relaxation time
for PEO in volatile solvents like dichloromethane and chloroform. PEO/chloroform solutions displayed an over 20fold increase in$$\lambda _{E}$$ ${\lambda}_{E}$ due to the formation of an evaporationinduced surface film; evaporation studies confirmed surface features and skin formation reminiscent of buckling instabilities commonly observed in drying polymer solutions. Finally, the relaxation times of semidilute PEO/chloroform solutions were measured with environmental control, where$$\lambda _{E}$$ ${\lambda}_{E}$ scaled with concentration by the exponent$$\lambda _{E}$$ ${\lambda}_{E}$ . These measurements validate the evaporationcontrolled DoS environment, and confirm that chloroform is a good solvent for PEO, with a Flory exponent of$$m=0.62$$ $m=0.62$ . Our results are the first to control evaporation during DoS extensional rheology, and provide guidelines establishing when environmental control is necessary to obtain accurate rheological parameters.$$\nu =0.54$$ $\nu =0.54$ 
Abstract A method for modelling the prompt production of molecular states using the hadronic rescattering framework of the generalpurpose Pythia event generator is introduced. Production cross sections of possible exotic hadronic molecules via hadronic rescattering at the LHC are calculated for the
resonance, a possible tetraquark state, as well as three possible pentaquark states,$$\chi _{c1}(3872)$$ ${\chi}_{c1}\left(3872\right)$ ,$$P_c^+(4312)$$ ${P}_{c}^{+}\left(4312\right)$ , and$$P_c^+(4440)$$ ${P}_{c}^{+}\left(4440\right)$ . For the$$P_c^+(4457)$$ ${P}_{c}^{+}\left(4457\right)$ states, the expected cross section from$$P_c^+$$ ${P}_{c}^{+}$ decays is compared to the hadronicrescattering production. The$$\Lambda _b$$ ${\Lambda}_{b}$ cross section is compared to the fiducial$$\chi _{c1}(3872)$$ ${\chi}_{c1}\left(3872\right)$ crosssection measurement by LHCb and found to contribute at a level of$$\chi _{c1}(3872)$$ ${\chi}_{c1}\left(3872\right)$ . Finally, the expected yields of$${\mathcal {O}({1\%})}$$ $O\left(1\%\right)$ production from hadronic rescattering during Run 3 of LHCb are estimated. The prompt background is found to be significantly larger than the prompt$$\mathrm {P_c^{+}}$$ ${P}_{c}^{+}$ signal from hadronic rescattering.$$\mathrm {P_c^{+}}$$ ${P}_{c}^{+}$
