The research of the interfacial section transitions in fluid platforms with short-range intermetallic interactions are of serious curiosity. The phenomena have been studied in platforms showing a liquid-liquid miscibility hole: on the fluid/wall interface in fluid KxKCl1-x and on the fluid/vacuum interface of the Ga1 xBix alloys.

New PDF release: Mathematical Physics Electronic Journal 5&6 (v. 5 & 6

The purpose of this magazine is to post papers in mathematical physics and comparable parts which are of the very best quality. learn papers and overview articles are chosen during the common refereeing strategy, overseen through an article board. The learn matters are totally on mathematical physics; yet this could now not be interpreted as a trouble, because the editors consider that basically all matters of arithmetic and physics are in precept appropriate to mathematical physics.

However, our belief is that we're probably not quite as good at calculating in that particular region as we think we are. Now, there's nothing else here. Even the little spikes in here are all explainable. ] You calculate those and you get the line that goes through here which fits the data precisely. So this is all pretty well analysed, I mean as well as most things get analysed. Now, let me tell you one other thing. This [sensitivity] is [about a 10-19] meters displacement. To get to LIGO sensitivity you don't have to do [two] orders of magnitude better than this [in noise reduction].

Technical noise is a way of saying that you havn't done your experiment very well - you know the way you have your [electrical] grounds done. The noise that comes from science - from physics - are listed here [ie, on the theoretical plot]. None of these - I claim that none of these [ie no new ones] have been observed by Mr Spero - we may have missed some down here. But the 40 meter - I'll try to find you a curve - this track here has been traced out and fit. And he didn't find anything fundamental - he didn't find anything fundamental up here.

If] You do this well [ie, as well as the 40 meter] over a longer baseline you gain because of the baseline. This is already at the level you have to do in LIGO, you just have to do 34 it over a longer baseline - which is what I call engineering. This displacement sensitivity is what we asked for in LIGO - [10-19] meters. ]] Yeh we gain a factor of a [hundred] giving 10-21 giving this curve for displacement sensitivity and then we ... OK? So this is already at the level [required in terms of noise elimination] and there is no unknown source - there's maybe a factor of two, but nothing that is a factor of 20.
