Abstract , where$$\sigma ^{\textrm{S}}= \frac{1}{N_{\textrm{S}}1}\sum _{j} ({\bar{u}}_{j}  {\bar{u}}_{m})^2$$ ${\sigma}^{\text{S}}=\frac{1}{{N}_{\text{S}}1}{\sum}_{j}{({\overline{u}}_{j}{\overline{u}}_{m})}^{2}$ is the number of mesh elements in the stencil,$$N_{\textrm{S}}$$ ${N}_{\text{S}}$ is the local function average over mesh element$${\bar{u}}_j$$ ${\overline{u}}_{j}$j , and indexm gives the target element. Reconstructions utilizing standard WENO weighting fail with this smoothness indicator. We develop a modification of WENOZ weighting that gives a reliable and accurate reconstruction of adaptive order, which we denote as SWENOZAO. We prove that it attains the order of accuracy of the large stencil polynomial approximation when the solution is smooth, and drops to the order of the small stencil polynomial approximations when there is a jump discontinuity in the solution. Numerical examples in one and two space dimensions on general meshes verify the approximation properties of the reconstruction. They also show it to be about 10 times faster in two space dimensions than reconstructions using the classic smoothness indicator. The new reconstruction is applied to define finite volume schemes to approximate the solution of hyperbolic conservation laws. Numerical tests show results of the same quality as standard WENO schemes using the classic smoothness indicator, but with an overall speedup in the computation time of about 3.5–5 times in 2D tests. Moreover, the computational efficiency (CPU time versus error) is noticeably improved. 
Abstract For a smooth projective variety
X over an algebraic number fieldk a conjecture of Bloch and Beilinson predicts that the kernel of the Albanese map ofX is a torsion group. In this article we consider a product of smooth projective curves and show that if the conjecture is true for any subproduct of two curves, then it is true for$$X=C_1\times \cdots \times C_d$$ $X={C}_{1}\times \cdots \times {C}_{d}$X . For a product of two curves over$$X=C_1\times C_2$$ $X={C}_{1}\times {C}_{2}$ with positive genus we construct many nontrivial examples that satisfy the weaker property that the image of the natural map$$\mathbb {Q} $$ $Q$ is finite, where$$J_1(\mathbb {Q})\otimes J_2(\mathbb {Q})\xrightarrow {\varepsilon }{{\,\textrm{CH}\,}}_0(C_1\times C_2)$$ ${J}_{1}\left(Q\right)\otimes {J}_{2}\left(Q\right)\stackrel{\epsilon}{\to}{\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{CH}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}}_{0}({C}_{1}\times {C}_{2})$ is the Jacobian variety of$$J_i$$ ${J}_{i}$ . Our constructions include many new examples of nonisogenous pairs of elliptic curves$$C_i$$ ${C}_{i}$ with positive rank, including the first known examples of rank greater than 1. Combining these constructions with our previous result, we obtain infinitely many nontrivial products$$E_1, E_2$$ ${E}_{1},{E}_{2}$ for which the analogous map$$X=C_1\times \cdots \times C_d$$ $X={C}_{1}\times \cdots \times {C}_{d}$ has finite image.$$\varepsilon $$ $\epsilon $ 
Abstract We construct an example of a group
for a finite abelian group$$G = \mathbb {Z}^2 \times G_0$$ $G={Z}^{2}\times {G}_{0}$ , a subset$$G_0$$ ${G}_{0}$E of , and two finite subsets$$G_0$$ ${G}_{0}$ of$$F_1,F_2$$ ${F}_{1},{F}_{2}$G , such that it is undecidable in ZFC whether can be tiled by translations of$$\mathbb {Z}^2\times E$$ ${Z}^{2}\times E$ . In particular, this implies that this tiling problem is$$F_1,F_2$$ ${F}_{1},{F}_{2}$aperiodic , in the sense that (in the standard universe of ZFC) there exist translational tilings ofE by the tiles , but no periodic tilings. Previously, such aperiodic or undecidable translational tilings were only constructed for sets of eleven or more tiles (mostly in$$F_1,F_2$$ ${F}_{1},{F}_{2}$ ). A similar construction also applies for$$\mathbb {Z}^2$$ ${Z}^{2}$ for sufficiently large$$G=\mathbb {Z}^d$$ $G={Z}^{d}$d . If one allows the group to be nonabelian, a variant of the construction produces an undecidable translational tiling with only one tile$$G_0$$ ${G}_{0}$F . The argument proceeds by first observing that a single tiling equation is able to encode an arbitrary system of tiling equations, which in turn can encode an arbitrary system of certain functional equations once one has two or more tiles. In particular, one can use two tiles to encode tiling problems for an arbitrary number of tiles. 
Abstract A steadystate, semianalytical model of energetic particle acceleration in radiojet shear flows due to cosmicray viscosity obtained by Webb et al. is generalized to take into account more general cosmicray boundary spectra. This involves solving a mixed Dirichlet–Von Neumann boundary value problem at the edge of the jet. The energetic particle distribution function
f _{0}(r ,p ) at cylindrical radiusr from the jet axis (assumed to lie along thez axis) is given by convolving the particle momentum spectrum with the Green’s function ${f}_{0}(\infty ,p\prime )$ , which describes the monoenergetic spectrum solution in which $G(r,p;p\prime )$ as ${f}_{0}\to \delta (pp\prime )$r → ∞ . Previous work by Webb et al. studied only the Green’s function solution for . In this paper, we explore for the first time, solutions for more general and realistic forms for $G(r,p;p\prime )$ . The flow velocity ${f}_{0}(\infty ,p\prime )$ =u u (r ) _{z}is along the axis of the jet (thee z axis). is independent ofu z , andu (r ) is a monotonic decreasing function ofr . The scattering time in the shear flow region 0 < $\tau {(r,p)={\tau}_{0}(p/{p}_{0})}^{\alpha}$r <r _{2}, and , where $\tau {(r,p)={\tau}_{0}(p/{p}_{0})}^{\alpha}{(r/{r}_{2})}^{s}$s > 0 in the regionr >r _{2}is outside the jet. Other original aspects of the analysis are (i) the use of cosmic ray flow lines in (r ,p ) space to clarify the particle spatial transport and momentum changes and (ii) the determination of the probability distribution that particles observed at ( ${\psi}_{p}(r,p;p\prime )$r ,p ) originated fromr → ∞ with momentum . The acceleration of ultrahighenergy cosmic rays in active galactic nuclei jet sources is discussed. Leaky box models for electron acceleration are described. $p\prime $ 
Abstract The presence of topological flat minibands in moiré materials provides an opportunity to explore the interplay between topology and correlation. In this work, we study moiré minibands in topological insulator films with two hybridized surface states under a moiré superlattice potential created by twodimensional insulating materials. We show the lowest conduction (highest valence) Kramers’ pair of minibands can be
nontrivial when the minima (maxima) of moiré potential approximately form a hexagonal lattice with sixfold rotation symmetry. Coulomb interaction can drive the nontrivial Kramers’ minibands into the quantum anomalous Hall state when they are halffilled, which is further stabilized by applying external gate voltages to break inversion. We propose the monolayer Sb_{2}on top of Sb_{2}Te_{3}films as a candidate based on first principles calculations. Our work demonstrates the topological insulator based moiré heterostructure as a potential platform for studying interacting topological phases.$${{\mathbb{Z}}}_{2}$$ ${Z}_{2}$
