  3. A bstract Charged-lepton-flavor-violation is predicted in several new physics scenarios. We update the analysis of τ lepton decays into a light charged lepton ( ℓ = e ± or μ ± ) and a vector meson ( V 0 = ρ 0 , ϕ , ω , K *0 , or $$ \overline{K} $$ K ¯ *0 ) using 980 fb − 1 of data collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB collider. No significant excess of such signal events is observed, and thus 90% credibility level upper limits are set on the τ → ℓV 0 branching fractions in the range of (1.7–4 . 3) × 10 − 8 . These limits are improved by 30% on average from the previous results.

  4. Abstract

    Large nonlinear internal solitary waves (NLIWs) are known to transit west northwest across the northeastern South China Sea from generation sites around the two‐ridge system in the Luzon Strait. The waves are important because their energy flux and dissipation are several orders of magnitude larger than the surrounding ocean. The wave transit has been well studied up to about the 100 m isobath but observations in shallower water have been scarce. Using oceanographic moorings and an innovative distributed temperature sensing optical cable, the NLIW transformations were observed from 2000 to 2 m on the flanks of Dongsha Atoll (Pratas Reef). Possible outcomes included reflection, refraction around the island, wave breaking, and penetration into shallow water. Upslope penetration depended on incident wave amplitude and direction as well as the local stratification.
