"Strategy" is mostly atmosphere as spoken words join in. "M'Fisto Rubberphunk" has some nice chunky bass and intricate sounds that come and go. I like the guitar after 3 minutes and the horns also become more prominant. It settles back before 6 minutes with the atmosphere and bass standing out.It continues to calm down. Horns start to come and go. It's starting to get more intense after 11 minutes with violin, drums and more. It settles late to end it. "Angel Stairs" is experimental with some suspense thrown in as well. We then get this nine piece suite called "Nine Nice 'N' Easy Pieces". It starts off avant and loud then drums, bass and dissonant horns take over but it's not as loud. Horns and violin play over top in the Fifth Piece then it turns intense before settling back on the Seventh Piece. It becomes more intense on the final section and also eerie after 2 1/2 minutes. The bass becomes prominant around a minute on "Like A Nervous Car Wreck" then the guitar starts to make some beautiful noise. "The Elephant Cure" opens with sparse sounds and it starts to build around 4 minutes.Incredible ! "Z Return" is experimental as horns come in over top. Drums around 1 1/2 minutes. It's building and another horn joins in. It settles before 7 1/2 minutes then calms down even more a minute later.This is a great album that I highly recommend. Improvs are hit and miss with me but this record along with "File Under Extreme" by this band are incredible. I had a hard time with their "On-Plugged In Elsinore" though. Just sayin'. social review comments Review PermalinkPosted Saturday, December 3, 2011 Review this album Report (Review #581313)

"Germanism" opens with slowly played piano as relaxed sax joins in then other sounds.This is mellow and atmospheric stuff. A dark calm before 5 minutes as the violin comes in. Outbursts of drums before 6 minutes as the violin continues. "Stand Apart" is a 12 second drum piece. "Free-Bop" is free alright as the drums, sax and violin all seem to be playing different songs (haha).The violin comes to the fore at 2 1/2 minutes as the drums pound. It settles before 4 minutes and we get some angular guitar. Dissonant sax kicks in to end it. "More Germanism" has these psychedelic spoken words as the violin plays over top.The atmosphere comes in then drums around 2 1/2 minutes. A very cool sound here. Sax a minute later to end it. "Age Concern" has a catchy rhythm with some energy as the sax starts to play over top.The rhythm stops as it turns experimental. Percussion and bass are back after 3 1/2 minutes then drums and sax a minute after that.Great sound ! "Less Is More" has this haunting intro as the violin makes spooky sounds.Very cool. Halfway through we get sax and other sounds coming and going in this dark soundscape. "Evaluation" opens in a chaotic manner. Insanity ! Violin comes to the fore after 2 minutes. Sax blasts away after 4 minutes then it gets crazy again. "Aspects Of A Myth" has a dark atmosphere with sax as the drums join in. It's intense 3 1/2 minutes in. Bass joins in and then that that tape collage. Haunting stuff especially after 6 minutes.Violin follows.A very solid 4 stars and recommended to the adventerous music lover. social review comments Review PermalinkPosted Thursday, October 13, 2011 Review this album Report (Review #549606)
A new time of flight mass spectrometer (TOFMS) has been developed to study the absolute dissociative electron attachment (DEA) cross section using a relative flow technique of a wide variety of molecules in gas phase, ranging from simple diatomic to complex biomolecules. Unlike the Wiley-McLaren type TOFMS, here the total ion collection condition has been achieved without compromising the mass resolution by introducing a field free drift region after the lensing arrangement. The field free interaction region is provided for low energy electron molecule collision studies. The spectrometer can be used to study a wide range of masses (H- ion to few hundreds atomic mass unit). The mass resolution capability of the spectrometer has been checked experimentally by measuring the mass spectra of fragment anions arising from DEA to methanol. Overall performance of the spectrometer has been tested by measuring the absolute DEA cross section of the ground state SO2 molecule, and the results are satisfactory.
An absolute scale match between experiment and simulation in atomic-resolution off-axis electron holography is demonstrated, with unknown experimental parameters determined directly from the recorded electron wave function using an automated numerical algorithm. We show that the local thickness and tilt of a pristine thin WSe2 flake can be measured uniquely, whereas some electron optical aberrations cannot be determined unambiguously for a periodic object. The ability to determine local specimen and imaging parameters directly from electron wave functions is of great importance for quantitative studies of electrostatic potentials in nanoscale materials, in particular when performing in situ experiments and considering that aberrations change over time.
We establish an explicit connection between the long distance physics of confinement and the dynamical interactions of quarks and gluons at short distances and it has been a long-sought goal of quantum chromodynamics. Using holographic QCD, we derive a direct analytic relation between the scale κ which determines the masses of hadrons and the scale Λ s which controls the predictions of perturbative QCD at very short distances. The resulting prediction Λ s=0.3410.032 GeV in the MS -scheme agrees well with the experimental average 0.3390.016 GeV. We also derive a relation between Λs and the QCD string tension σ. Furthermore,more this connection between the fundamental hadronic scale underlying the physics of quark confinement and the perturbative QCD scale controlling hard collisions can be carried out in any renormalization scheme. less
To control electro-mechanical engines, high-resolution linear and rotary encoders are needed. Interferometric methods (grating interferometers) promise a resolution of a few nanometers, but have an ambiguity range of some microns. Incremental encoders increase the absolute measurement range by counting the signal periods starting from a defined initial point. In many applications, however, it is not possible to move to this initial point, so that absolute encoders have to be used. Absolute encoders generally have a scale with two or more tracks placed next to each other. Therefore, they use a two-dimensional grating structure to measure a one-dimensional position. We present a new method, which uses a one-dimensional structure to determine the position in one dimension. It is based on a grating with a large grating period up to some millimeters, having the same diffraction efficiency in several predefined diffraction orders (multiple grating). By combining the phase signals of the different diffraction orders, it is possible to establish the position in an absolute range of the grating period with a resolution like incremental grating interferometers. The principal functionality was demonstrated by applying the multiple grating in a heterodyne grating interferometer. The heterodyne frequency was generated by a frequency modulated laser in an unbalanced interferometer. In experimental measurements an absolute range of 8 mm was obtained while achieving a resolution of 10 nm.
The minimal SU(5) grand unified field theory (GUT) model fails to resolve the strong charge parity (CP) problem, suffers from the cosmological monopole problem, sheds no light on the nature of the 'dark' mass in the universe, and predicts an unacceptably low value for the baryon asymmetry. All these problems can be overcome in suitable grand unified axion models with an intermediate mass scale of about 10 to the 11th power to 10 to the 12th power GeV. An example based on the gauge group SO(10) is presented. Among other things, it predicts that the axions comprise the 'dark' mass in the universe, and that there exists a galactic monopole flux of 10 to the -8th power to 10 to the -7th power/sq cm/yr. Other topics that are briefly discussed include proton decay, family symmetry, neutrino masses and the gauge hierarchy problem.
The possibility of detecting neutrinoless double-β-decay (0νββ-decay) in experiments that are currently in operation or under development provides the exciting opportunity to determine the Dirac or Majorana nature of the neutrino and its absolute mass scale. An important datum for interpreting 0νββ-decay experimental results is the Q value of the decay. Using Penning trap mass spectrometry we have measured the atomic mass of 48Ca to be M[48Ca] = 47.952 522 76(21) u which, combined with the mass of 48Ti evaluated by Audi [Nucl. Phys. ANUPABL0375-947410.1016/j.nuclphysa.2003.11.003 729, 337 (2003)], provides a new determination of the 48Ca ββ-decay Q value: Qββ = 4262.96(84) keV.
In this letter, we study collider phenomenology in the supersymmetric Standard Model with a certain type of non-universal gaugino masses at the gauge coupling unification scale, motivated by the little hierarchy problem. In this scenario, especially the wino mass is relatively large compared to the gluino mass at the unification scale, and the heavy wino can relax the fine-tuning of the higgsino mass parameter, so-called μ-parameter. Besides, it will enhance the lightest Higgs boson mass due to the relatively large left-right mixing of top squarks through the renormalization group (RG) effect. Then 125 GeV Higgs boson could be accomplished, even if the top squarks are lighter than 1 TeV and the μ parameter is within a few hundreds GeV. The right-handed top squark tends to be lighter than the other sfermions due to the RG runnings, then we focus on the top squark search at the LHC. Since the top squark is almost right-handed and the higgsinos are nearly degenerate, 2 b + E T miss channel is the most sensitive to this scenario. We figure out current and expected experimental bounds on the lightest top squark mass and model parameters at the gauge coupling unification scale. 041b061a72
