  1. 1. Topology Meets Frustration : Exact Solutions for Topological Surface States on Geometrically Frustrated Lattices

    Author : Flore Kiki Kunst; Emil Bergholtz; Jack Lidmar; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Topology; boundary states; surface states; edge states; Chern insulator; Weyl semimetal; Theoretical Physics; teoretisk fysik;

    Abstract : One of the main features of topological phases is the presence of robust boundary states that are protected by a topological invariant. Famous examples of such states are the chiral edge states of a Chern insulator, the helical edge states of a two-dimensional Z2 insulator, and the Fermi arcs of Weyl semimetals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Boundary states in conformal field theory

    Author : Albrecht Wurtz; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis discusses boundary states in conformal field theories related to WZW (Wess-Zumino-Witten) models. These models are used as building blocks to describe the compact extra dimensions of certain string theories. The focus of the first chapter is to give a flavor of conformal field theory. READ MORE

  3. 3. States of Development : Essays on the Political Economy of Development in Asia

    Author : Nathaniel Lane; Torsten Persson; Rohini Pande; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Economic Development; Industrial Development; Economic Institutions; Political Economy; State Capacity; Economics; nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : Manufacturing Revolutions - Industrial Policy and Networks in South Korea. This chapter uses a historic big push intervention and newly digitized data from South Korea to study the effects of industrial policy on industrial development. In 1973 South Korea transitioned to a military dictatorship and drastically changed their development strategy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Edge states and transition to turbulence in boundary layers

    Author : Taras Khapko; Dan Henningson; Philipp Schlatter; Yohann Duguet; Rich Kerswell; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; boundary layer; transition to turbulence; direct numerical simulation; edge state; free-stream turbulence; bypass transition; probabilistic cellular automaton; turbulence at the onset; laminar–turbulent coexistence; laminarisation; Engineering Mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis is the numerical study of subcritical transition to turbulence in boundary-layer flows. For the most part, boundary layers with uniform suction are considered. Constant homogeneous suction counteracts the spatial growth of the boundary layer, rendering the flow parallel. READ MORE

  5. 5. Transition to turbulence in the asymptotic suction boundary layer

    Author : Taras Khapko; Dan Henningson; Philipp Schlatter; Yohann Duguet; Marc Avila; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; boundary layers; instability; laminar-turbulent transition; dynamical systems; edge states; near-wall turbulence; laminarisation;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis is on the numerical study of subcritical transition to turbulence in the asymptotic suction boundary layer (ASBL). Applying constant homogeneous suction prevents the spatial growth of the boundary layer, granting access to the asymptotic dynamics. READ MORE
