Abstract ×$$\sqrt{{{3}}}$$ $\sqrt{3}$ charge order in a newly discovered kagome metal ScV_{6}Sn_{6}. Through multimodal investigations combining angleresolved photoemission spectroscopy, phonon dispersion calculations, and phase diagram study, we identify the central role of unstable planar Sn and Sc phonon modes, while the electronic instability and van Hove singularities originating from the V kagome lattice have a marginal influence. Our results highlight that the$$\sqrt{{{3}}}$$ $\sqrt{3}$ ×$$\sqrt{{{3}}}$$ $\sqrt{3}$ charge order in ScV_{6}Sn_{6}is fundamentally distinguished from the electronically driven 2 × 2 charge order in the canonical kagome system AV_{3}Sb_{5}, uncovering a new mechanism to induce symmetrybreaking phase transition in kagome lattice materials.$$\sqrt{{{3}}}$$ $\sqrt{3}$ 
Abstract Rooted binary
galled trees generalize rooted binary trees to allow a restricted class of cycles, known asgalls . We build upon the WedderburnEtherington enumeration of rooted binary unlabeled trees withn leaves to enumerate rooted binary unlabeled galled trees withn leaves, also enumerating rooted binary unlabeled galled trees withn leaves andg galls, . The enumerations rely on a recursive decomposition that considers subtrees descended from the nodes of a gall, adopting a restriction on galls that amounts to considering only the rooted binary$$0 \leqslant g \leqslant \lfloor \frac{n1}{2} \rfloor $$ $0\u2a7dg\u2a7d\lfloor \frac{n1}{2}\rfloor $normal unlabeled galled trees in our enumeration. We write an implicit expression for the generating function encoding the numbers of trees for alln . We show that the number of rooted binary unlabeled galled trees grows with , exceeding the growth$$0.0779(4.8230^n)n^{\frac{3}{2}}$$ $0.0779(4.{8230}^{n}){n}^{\frac{3}{2}}$ of the number of rooted binary unlabeled trees without galls. However, the growth of the number of galled trees with only one gall has the same exponential order 2.4833 as the number with no galls, exceeding it only in the subexponential term,$$0.3188(2.4833^n)n^{\frac{3}{2}}$$ $0.3188(2.{4833}^{n}){n}^{\frac{3}{2}}$ compared to$$0.3910n^{\frac{1}{2}}$$ $0.3910{n}^{\frac{1}{2}}$ . For a fixed number of leaves$$0.3188n^{\frac{3}{2}}$$ $0.3188{n}^{\frac{3}{2}}$n , the number of gallsg that produces the largest number of rooted binary unlabeled galled trees lies intermediate between the minimum of and the maximum of$$g=0$$ $g=0$ . We discuss implications in mathematical phylogenetics.$$g=\lfloor \frac{n1}{2} \rfloor $$ $g=\lfloor \frac{n1}{2}\rfloor $ 
A<sc>bstract</sc> We consider the 𝒩 = (2, 2) AdS_{3}/CFT_{2}dualities proposed by Eberhardt, where the bulk geometry is AdS_{3}× (
S ^{3}×T ^{4})/ℤ_{k}, and the CFT is a deformation of the symmetric orbifold of the supersymmetric sigma modelT ^{4}/ℤ_{k}(withk = 2, 3, 4, 6). The elliptic genera of the two sides vanish due to fermionic zero modes, so for microstate counting applications one must consider modified supersymmetric indices. In an analysis similar to that of Maldacena, Moore, and Strominger for the standard 𝒩 = (4, 4) case ofT ^{4}, we study the appropriate helicitytrace index of the boundary CFTs. We encounter a strange phenomenon where a saddlepoint analysis of our indices reproduces only a fraction (respectively ,$$ \frac{1}{2} $$ $\frac{1}{2}$ ,$$ \frac{2}{3} $$ $\frac{2}{3}$ ,$$ \frac{3}{4} $$ $\frac{3}{4}$ ) of the BekensteinHawking entropy of the associated macroscopic black branes.$$ \frac{5}{6} $$ $\frac{5}{6}$ 
Abstract Assuming the Riemann Hypothesis, we study negative moments of the Riemann zetafunction and obtain asymptotic formulas in certain ranges of the shift in
. For example, integrating$\zeta (s)$ {\zeta(s)} with respect to${\zeta (\frac{1}{2}+\alpha +it)}^{2k}$ {\zeta(\frac{1}{2}+\alpha+it)^{2k}} t fromT to , we obtain an asymptotic formula when the shift α is roughly bigger than$2T$ {2T} and$\frac{1}{\mathrm{log}T}$ {\frac{1}{\log T}} . We also obtain nontrivial upper bounds for much smaller shifts, as long as$k<\frac{1}{2}$ {k<\frac{1}{2}} . This provides partial progress towards a conjecture of Gonek on negative moments of the Riemann zetafunction, and settles the conjecture in certain ranges. As an application, we also obtain an upper bound for the average of the generalized Möbius function.$\mathrm{log}\frac{1}{\alpha}\ll \mathrm{log}\mathrm{log}T$ {\log\frac{1}{\alpha}\ll\log\log T} 
Abstract Metastable levels of highly charged ions that can only decay via highly forbidden transitions can have a significant effect on the properties of high temperature plasmas. For example, the highly forbidden 3d
$$^{10}$$ $_{}^{10}$  3d$$_{J=0}$$ $_{J=0}^{}$ 4 s$$^9$$ $_{}^{9}$ magnetic octupole (M3) transition in nickellike ions can result in a large metastable population of its upper level which can then be ionized by electrons of energies below the ground state ionization potential. We present a method to study metastable electronic states in highly charged ions that decay by xray emission in electron beam ion traps (EBIT). The time evolution of the emission intensity can be used to study the parameters of ionization balance dynamics and the lifetime of metastable states. The temporal and energy resolution of a new transitionedge sensor microcalorimeter array enables these studies at the National Institute of Standards and Technology EBIT.$$(\frac{5}{2},\frac{1}{2})_{J=3}$$ ${(\frac{5}{2},\frac{1}{2})}_{J=3}$Graphical abstract NOMAD calculated time evolution of the ratio of the Nilike and Colike lines in Nd at varying electron densities compared with measured ratios
