This paper examined the effect of Si addition on the cracking resistance of Inconel 939 alloy after laser additive manufacturing (AM) process. With the help of CALculation of PHAse Diagrams (CALPHAD) software ThermoCalc, the amounts of specific elements (C, B, and Zr) in liquid phase during solidification, cracking susceptibility coefficients (CSC) and cracking criterion based on

Abstract Let
K be a finite simplicial, cubical, delta or CW complex. The persistence map takes a filter$$\textrm{PH}$$ $\text{PH}$ as input and returns the barcodes of the sublevel set persistent homology of$$f:K\rightarrow \mathbb {R}$$ $f:K\to R$f in each dimension. We address the inverse problem: given target barcodesD , computing the fiber . For this, we use the fact that$$\textrm{PH}^{1}(D)$$ ${\text{PH}}^{1}\left(D\right)$ decomposes as a polyhedral complex when$$\textrm{PH}^{1}(D)$$ ${\text{PH}}^{1}\left(D\right)$K is a simplicial complex, and we generalise this result to arbitrary based chain complexes. We then design and implement a depthfirst search that recovers the polytopes forming the fiber . As an application, we solve a corpus of 120 sample problems, providing a first insight into the statistical structure of these fibers, for general CW complexes.$$\textrm{PH}^{1}(D)$$ ${\text{PH}}^{1}\left(D\right)$ 
Abstract Consider two halfspaces
and$$H_1^+$$ ${H}_{1}^{+}$ in$$H_2^+$$ ${H}_{2}^{+}$ whose bounding hyperplanes$${\mathbb {R}}^{d+1}$$ ${R}^{d+1}$ and$$H_1$$ ${H}_{1}$ are orthogonal and pass through the origin. The intersection$$H_2$$ ${H}_{2}$ is a spherical convex subset of the$${\mathbb {S}}_{2,+}^d:={\mathbb {S}}^d\cap H_1^+\cap H_2^+$$ ${S}_{2,+}^{d}:={S}^{d}\cap {H}_{1}^{+}\cap {H}_{2}^{+}$d dimensional unit sphere , which contains a great subsphere of dimension$${\mathbb {S}}^d$$ ${S}^{d}$ and is called a spherical wedge. Choose$$d2$$ $d2$n independent random points uniformly at random on and consider the expected facet number of the spherical convex hull of these points. It is shown that, up to terms of lower order, this expectation grows like a constant multiple of$${\mathbb {S}}_{2,+}^d$$ ${S}_{2,+}^{d}$ . A similar behaviour is obtained for the expected facet number of a homogeneous Poisson point process on$$\log n$$ $logn$ . The result is compared to the corresponding behaviour of classical Euclidean random polytopes and of spherical random polytopes on a halfsphere.$${\mathbb {S}}_{2,+}^d$$ ${S}_{2,+}^{d}$ 
Abstract The elliptic flow
of$$(v_2)$$ $\left({v}_{2}\right)$ mesons from beautyhadron decays (nonprompt$${\textrm{D}}^{0}$$ ${\text{D}}^{0}$ was measured in midcentral (30–50%) Pb–Pb collisions at a centreofmass energy per nucleon pair$${\textrm{D}}^{0})$$ ${\text{D}}^{0})$ TeV with the ALICE detector at the LHC. The$$\sqrt{s_{\textrm{NN}}} = 5.02$$ $\sqrt{{s}_{\text{NN}}}=5.02$ mesons were reconstructed at midrapidity$${\textrm{D}}^{0}$$ ${\text{D}}^{0}$ from their hadronic decay$$(y<0.8)$$ $\left(\righty<0.8)$ , in the transverse momentum interval$$\mathrm {D^0 \rightarrow K^\uppi ^+}$$ ${D}^{0}\to {K}^{}{\pi}^{+}$ GeV/$$2< p_{\textrm{T}} < 12$$ $2<{p}_{\text{T}}<12$c . The result indicates a positive for nonprompt$$v_2$$ ${v}_{2}$ mesons with a significance of 2.7$${{\textrm{D}}^{0}}$$ ${\text{D}}^{0}$ . The nonprompt$$\sigma $$ $\sigma $ meson$${{\textrm{D}}^{0}}$$ ${\text{D}}^{0}$ is lower than that of prompt nonstrange D mesons with 3.2$$v_2$$ ${v}_{2}$ significance in$$\sigma $$ $\sigma $ , and compatible with the$$2< p_\textrm{T} < 8~\textrm{GeV}/c$$ $2<{p}_{\text{T}}<8\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{GeV}/c$ of beautydecay electrons. Theoretical calculations of beautyquark transport in a hydrodynamically expanding medium describe the measurement within uncertainties.$$v_2$$ ${v}_{2}$ 
Abstract We prove that the Hilbert scheme of
k points on ($${\mathbb {C}}^2$$ ${C}^{2}$ ) is selfdual under threedimensional mirror symmetry using methods of geometry and integrability. Namely, we demonstrate that the corresponding quantum equivariant Ktheory is invariant upon interchanging its Kähler and equivariant parameters as well as inverting the weight of the$$\hbox {Hilb}^k[{\mathbb {C}}^2]$$ ${\text{Hilb}}^{k}\left[{C}^{2}\right]$ action. First, we find a twoparameter family$${\mathbb {C}}^\times _\hbar $$ ${C}_{\u0127}^{\times}$ of selfmirror quiver varieties of type A and study their quantum Ktheory algebras. The desired quantum Ktheory of$$X_{k,l}$$ ${X}_{k,l}$ is obtained via direct limit$$\hbox {Hilb}^k[{\mathbb {C}}^2]$$ ${\text{Hilb}}^{k}\left[{C}^{2}\right]$ and by imposing certain periodic boundary conditions on the quiver data. Throughout the proof, we employ the quantum/classical (qLanglands) correspondence between XXZ Bethe Ansatz equations and spaces of twisted$$l\longrightarrow \infty $$ $l\u27f6\infty $ opers. In the end, we propose the 3d mirror dual for the moduli spaces of torsionfree rank$$\hbar $$ $\u0127$N sheaves on with the help of a different (threeparametric) family of type A quiver varieties with known mirror dual.$${\mathbb {P}}^2$$ ${P}^{2}$
