For polyhedral constrained optimization problems and a feasible point
Using extensive numerical simulation of the Navier–Stokes equations, we study the transition from the Darcy’s law for slow flow of fluids through a disordered porous medium to the nonlinear flow regime in which the effect of inertia cannot be neglected. The porous medium is represented by twodimensional slices of a threedimensional image of a sandstone. We study the problem over wide ranges of porosity and the Reynolds number, as well as two types of boundary conditions, and compute essential features of fluid flow, namely, the strength of the vorticity, the effective permeability of the pore space, the frictional drag, and the relationship between the macroscopic pressure gradient

Abstract , it is shown that the projection of the negative gradient on the tangent cone, denoted$$\textbf{x}$$ $x$ , has an orthogonal decomposition of the form$$\nabla _\varOmega f(\textbf{x})$$ ${\nabla}_{\Omega}f\left(x\right)$ . At a stationary point,$$\varvec{\beta }(\textbf{x}) + \varvec{\varphi }(\textbf{x})$$ $\beta \left(x\right)+\phi \left(x\right)$ so$$\nabla _\varOmega f(\textbf{x}) = \textbf{0}$$ ${\nabla}_{\Omega}f\left(x\right)=0$ reflects the distance to a stationary point. Away from a stationary point,$$\Vert \nabla _\varOmega f(\textbf{x})\Vert $$ $\Vert {\nabla}_{\Omega}f\left(x\right)\Vert $ and$$\Vert \varvec{\beta }(\textbf{x})\Vert $$ $\Vert \beta \left(x\right)\Vert $ measure different aspects of optimality since$$\Vert \varvec{\varphi }(\textbf{x})\Vert $$ $\Vert \phi \left(x\right)\Vert $ only vanishes when the KKT multipliers at$$\varvec{\beta }(\textbf{x})$$ $\beta \left(x\right)$ have the correct sign, while$$\textbf{x}$$ $x$ only vanishes when$$\varvec{\varphi }(\textbf{x})$$ $\phi \left(x\right)$ is a stationary point in the active manifold. As an application of the theory, an active set algorithm is developed for convex quadratic programs which adapts the flow of the algorithm based on a comparison between$$\textbf{x}$$ $x$ and$$\Vert \varvec{\beta }(\textbf{x})\Vert $$ $\Vert \beta \left(x\right)\Vert $ .$$\Vert \varvec{\varphi }(\textbf{x})\Vert $$ $\Vert \phi \left(x\right)\Vert $ 
Abstract We report a transport study on Pd_{3}In_{7}which displays multiple Dirac typeII nodes in its electronic dispersion. Pd_{3}In_{7}is characterized by low residual resistivities and high mobilities, which are consistent with Diraclike quasiparticles. For an applied magnetic field (
μ _{0}H ) having a nonzero component along the electrical current, we find a large, positive, and linear inμ _{0}H longitudinal magnetoresistivity (LMR). The sign of the LMR and its linear dependence deviate from the behavior reported for the chiralanomalydriven LMR in Weyl semimetals. Interestingly, such anomalous LMR is consistent with predictions for the role of the anomaly in typeII Weyl semimetals. In contrast, the transverse or conventional magnetoresistivity (CMR for electric fieldsE ⊥μ _{0}H ) is large and positive, increasing by 10^{3}−10^{4}% as a function ofμ _{0}H while following an anomalous, angledependent power law with$${\rho }_{{{{\rm{xx}}}}}\propto {({\mu }_{0}H)}^{n}$$ ${\rho}_{\mathrm{xx}}\propto {\left({\mu}_{0}H\right)}^{n}$n (θ ) ≤ 1. The order of magnitude of the CMR, and its anomalous powerlaw, is explained in terms of uncompensated electron and holelike Fermi surfaces characterized by anisotropic carrier scattering likely due to the lack of Lorentz invariance. 
Abstract We report on a measurement of Spin Density Matrix Elements (SDMEs) in hard exclusive
meson muoproduction at COMPASS using 160 GeV/$$\rho ^0$$ ${\rho}^{0}$c polarised and$$ \mu ^{+}$$ ${\mu}^{+}$ beams impinging on a liquid hydrogen target. The measurement covers the kinematic range 5.0 GeV/$$ \mu ^{}$$ ${\mu}^{}$$$c^2$$ ${c}^{2}$ 17.0 GeV/$$< W<$$ $<W<$ , 1.0 (GeV/$$c^2$$ ${c}^{2}$c )$$^2$$ ${}^{2}$ 10.0 (GeV/$$< Q^2<$$ $<{Q}^{2}<$c ) and 0.01 (GeV/$$^2$$ ${}^{2}$c )$$^2$$ ${}^{2}$ 0.5 (GeV/$$< p_{\textrm{T}}^2<$$ $<{p}_{\text{T}}^{2}<$c ) . Here,$$^2$$ ${}^{2}$W denotes the mass of the final hadronic system, the virtuality of the exchanged photon, and$$Q^2$$ ${Q}^{2}$ the transverse momentum of the$$p_{\textrm{T}}$$ ${p}_{\text{T}}$ meson with respect to the virtualphoton direction. The measured nonzero SDMEs for the transitions of transversely polarised virtual photons to longitudinally polarised vector mesons ($$\rho ^0$$ ${\rho}^{0}$ ) indicate a violation of$$\gamma ^*_T \rightarrow V^{ }_L$$ ${\gamma}_{T}^{\ast}\to {V}_{L}^{}$s channel helicity conservation. Additionally, we observe a dominant contribution of naturalparityexchange transitions and a very small contribution of unnaturalparityexchange transitions, which is compatible with zero within experimental uncertainties. The results provide important input for modelling Generalised Parton Distributions (GPDs). In particular, they may allow one to evaluate in a modeldependent way the role of parton helicityflip GPDs in exclusive production.$$\rho ^0$$ ${\rho}^{0}$ 
Abstract Hemiwicking is the phenomena where a liquid wets a textured surface beyond its intrinsic wetting length due to capillary action and imbibition. In this work, we derive a simple analytical model for hemiwicking in micropillar arrays. The model is based on the combined effects of capillary action dictated by interfacial and intermolecular pressures gradients within the curved liquid meniscus and fluid drag from the pillars at ultralow Reynolds numbers
. Fluid drag is conceptualized via a critical Reynolds number:$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\bf{10}}}^{{\boldsymbol{}}{\bf{7}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{Re}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\bf{10}}}^{{\boldsymbol{}}{\bf{3}}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({10}^{7}\lesssim \mathrm{Re}\lesssim {10}^{3}\right)$ , where$${\bf{Re}}{\boldsymbol{=}}\frac{{{\bf{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{{\bf{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}}{{\boldsymbol{\nu }}}$$ $\mathrm{Re}=\frac{{v}_{0}{x}_{0}}{\nu}$v _{0}corresponds to the maximum wetting speed on a flat, dry surface andx _{0}is the extension length of the liquid meniscus that drives the bulk fluid toward the adsorbed thinfilm region. The model is validated with wicking experiments on different hemiwicking surfaces in conjunction withv _{0}andx _{0}measurements using Water , viscous FC70$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\bf{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\approx }}{\bf{2}}\,{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{/}}{\bf{s}}{\boldsymbol{,}}\,{\bf{25}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\bf{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{28}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({v}_{0}\approx 2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}m/s,\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}25\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\lesssim {x}_{0}\lesssim 28\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\right)$ and lower viscosity Ethanol$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\boldsymbol{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\approx }}{\bf{0.3}}\,{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{/}}{\bf{s}}{\boldsymbol{,}}\,{\bf{18.6}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\boldsymbol{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{38.6}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({v}_{0}\approx 0.3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}m/s,\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}18.6\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\lesssim {x}_{0}\lesssim 38.6\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\right)$ .$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\boldsymbol{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\approx }}{\bf{1.2}}\,{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{/}}{\bf{s}}{\boldsymbol{,}}\,{\bf{11.8}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\bf{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{33.3}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({v}_{0}\approx 1.2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}m/s,\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}11.8\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\lesssim {x}_{0}\lesssim 33.3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\right)$ 
Abstract We study the structure of the Liouville quantum gravity (LQG) surfaces that are cut out as one explores a conformal loopensemble
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 even for nonintegerq between 1 and 4) if and only if . This provides further evidence for the longstanding belief that$$q=4\cos ^2(4\pi / \kappa ')$$ $q=4{cos}^{2}(4\pi /{\kappa}^{\prime})$ and$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$ represent the scaling limits of$$\hbox {CLE}_{16/\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{16/{\kappa}^{\prime}}$ percolation and the$$\hbox {FK}_q$$ ${\text{FK}}_{q}$q Potts model whenq and are related in this way. Another consequence of the formula for$$\kappa '$$ ${\kappa}^{\prime}$ is the value of halfplane arm exponents for such divideandcolor models (a.k.a. fuzzy Potts models) that turn out to take a somewhat different form than the usual critical exponents for twodimensional models.$$\rho (p,\kappa ')$$ $\rho (p,{\kappa}^{\prime})$
