We work out a multiverse scenario whose physical characteristics enable us to advance the following conjecture: whereas the physics of particles and fields is confined to live in the realm of the whole multiverse formed by finite-time single universes, the physics of our observable universe must be confined to just one of the infinite number of universes where such a universe is consistently referred to an infinite cosmic time. If this conjecture is adopted, then some current fundamental problems that appear when one tries to make compatible particle physics and cosmology-such as the cosmological constant, the arrow of time and the existence of a finite proper size of the horizon-can be solved. © 2010 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

In this paper we report the results obtained when calculating the electronic structure of the H 4 molecular system within the framework of the G-particle-hole Hypervirial equation (GHV). This method determines directly the G-particle-hole matrix of the state considered without a previous knowledge of the wave-function. Our primary aim is to compare the GHV performance with that of other standard ab initio methods having as ultimate reference the FCI results, when the system considered is strongly correlated. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

In this paper, we report original measurements of total crosssections (TCSs) for positron scattering from an important biomolecule, α-tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol (THFA). The energy range of these measurements was 0.15-50.15 eV, whereas the energy resolution was ∼260 meV. In addition, we report theoretical results, calculated within the independent-screened additivity rule (IAM-SCAR) formalism, on the corresponding electron impact total crosssections. In this case, the energy range is 1-10 000 eV. With the advent of new particle track simulation codes, which incorporate accurate atomic and molecular data in order to provide interaction details at the nanoscale, interest in positron and electron TCSs has enjoyed something of a recent renaissance as they specify the mean free path between collisions in such codes. Because the present data are, to the best of our knowledge, the first TCSs to be reported for positron scattering from THFA, they fill an important void in the knowledge available to us from the literature. © IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft.

The SCAR and EGAR procedures have been proposed in order to extend to lower energies the applicability of the additivity rule for calculation of electron-molecule total cross sections. Both those approximate treatments arise after considering geometrical screening corrections due to partial overlapping of atoms in the molecule, as seen by the incident electrons. The main features, results and limitations of both treatments are put here in comparison by means of their application to some different sized species. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

In this paper we report original measurements of total cross sections for positron scattering from the important biomolecule pyrimidine. The energy range of these measurements was 0.3-45 eV, while the energy resolution was ∼260 meV. In addition, we report theoretical results, calculated within the independent atom-screened additivity rule (IAM-SCAR) formalism, for the corresponding electron impact total cross sections. In that case the energy range is 1-10 000 eV. Total cross sections are very important input data for codes that seek to simulate charged-particle tracks in matter, as they define the mean-free path between collisions. As the present data and computations are to the best of our knowledge the first total cross sections to be reported for either positron or electron scattering from pyrimidine, they fill an important void in our available knowledge in the literature. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.

The first aim of this paper is to give an overview of the contracted equations theory (Valdemoro in Adv Chem Phys 134. Wiley, New York, 2007) leading to the description of the G-particle-hole Hypervirial equation (GHV) (Alcoba et al. in Int J Quantum Chem 109:3178, 2009; 111:937, 2011; J. Phys. Chem. A 115:2599, 2011; Valdemoro et al. in Int J Quantum Chem 109:2622, 2009; 111:245, 2011). Our second aim here is to show the suitability to combine the GHV method with the Hermitian Operator (HO) method of Bouten et al. (Nucl Phys A 202:127, 1973; 221:173, 1974) for obtaining various energy differences of a system spectrum when the G-particle-hole matrix and the energy of an almost mono-configurational state is known. Two simple applicative examples of the combined GHV-HO performance are reported. These examples constitute a preliminary test showing that, provided that a G-particle-hole matrix corresponding to a conveniently chosen mainly mono-configurational state is known, this combined method can yield an accurate energy value for a highly correlated state which would be hard to obtain directly with the GHV. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

Elastic electron scattering from gaseous formamide (H 2NCHO) has been investigated. Absolute elastic differential cross sections (DCSs) were determined both experimentally and theoretically. The measurements were performed using a cross beam technique, for the incident energies of 100, 150 and 300 eV and scattering angles from 20°to 110°. Relative elastic DCSs were measured as a function of the angle and the absolute DCSs were determined using the relative flow method. The calculations of electron interaction cross sections are based on a corrected form of the independent-atom method, known as the SCAR (screen corrected additivity rule) procedure and using an improved quasifree absorption model. Calculated results agree very well with the experiment. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

The G-particle-hole hypervirial (GHV) equation has been recently reported (Valdemoro et al., Sixth International Congress of the International Society for Theoretical Chemical Physics Vancouver: Canada, 2008. Alcoba et al., Int J Quantum Chem 2009, 109, 3178; Valdemoro et al., Int J Quantum Chem 2009, 109, 2622). This equation is the newest member of the family of equations which can be obtained by applying a matrix-contracting mapping (Valdemoro, An R Soc Esp Fís 1983, 79, 106; Valdemoro, Phys Rev A 1985, 31, 2114; Valdemoro, in Density Matrices and Density Functionals, Reidel: Dordrecht, 1987; p 275.) to the matrix representation in the N-electron space of the Schrödinger, Liouville and hypervirial equations. The procedure that we have applied in order to solve the GHV equation exploits the stationary property of the hypervirials (Hirschfelder, J Chem Phys 1960, 33, 1462; Hirschfelder and Epstein, Phys Rev 1961, 123, 1495) and follows the general lines of Mazziotti's variational approach for solving the anti-Hermitian contracted Schrödinger equation (ACSE) (Mazziotti, Phys Rev Lett 2006, 97, 143002; Mazziotti, Phys Rev A 2007, 75, 022505; Mazziotti, J Chem Phys 2007, 126, 184101). In this article, we report how the method's convergence has been significantly enhanced and how its computational scaling has been considerably reduced (in both floating-point operations and storage). The results for a variety of atomic and molecular calculations confirming these methodological improvements are reported here. Copyright © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

We review earlier cross section data sets for electron-collisions with H 2, O 2, CO, CO 2, H 2O and N2O, updated here by experimental results for their electronic states. Based on our recent measurements of differential cross sections for the electronic states of those molecules, integral cross sections (ICSs) are derived by applying a generalized oscillator strength analysis and then assessed against theory (BEf-scaling [Y.-K. Kim, J. Chem. Phys. 126, 064305 (2007)]). As they now represent benchmark electronic state cross sections, those ICSs for the above molecules are added into the original cross section sets taken from the data reviews for H2, O2, CO2 and H2O (the Itikawa group), and for CO and N2O (the Zecca group). © EDP Sciences, Società Italiana di Fisica, Springer-Verlag 2012.

It is usually assumed that the t parameter in the equations of dynamics can be identified with the indication of the pointer of a clock. Things are not so simple, however. In fact, because the equations of motion can be written in terms of t but also in terms of t′ = f(t), f being any well-behaved function, any one of those infinite parametric times t′ is as good as the newtonian one to study classical dynamics in hamiltonian form. Here we show that, as a consequence of parametric invariance, one of the foundations of classical dynamics, the relation between the mathematical parametric time t in the equations of dynamics and the physical dynamical time σ that is measured with a particular clock (which is itself a dynamical system) requires the characterization of the clock that is used to achieve a complete treatment of dynamical systems. These two kinds of time, therefore, must be carefully distinguished. Furthermore, we show that not all the dynamical clock-times are necessarily equivalent and that the observational fingerprint of this nonequivalence has, curiously, the same form as that of the Pioneer anomaly. This suggests, therefore, that an acceleration to one another of the astronomical and the atomic times, t astr and t atom, can contribute to the total amount of the anomaly. © 2012 Published by NRC Research Press.
