    Current Distribution and Nonlinearity of Open-Ends and Gaps in Superconducting Microstrip Structures

    , Article Journal of Superconductivity and Novel Magnetism ; Volume 26, Issue 5 , May , 2012 , PP, 1821-1825 ; 15571939 (ISSN) Javadzadeh, S. M. H ; Farzaneh, F ; Fardmanesh, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Superconducting devices are known to produce nonlinear effects. In planar structures, these nonlinearities depend on the current distribution on the strip, which definitely depends on the structure of device. This paper used a numerical method based on 3D-FEM to obtain the current distribution in the open-ends and gaps in the superconducting microstrip structures. This is used to present the nonlinear distributed circuit modeling of these discontinuities and its impact on the nonlinear phenomenon. This nonlinear circuit model is used in the Harmonic Balance (HB) method to analyze nonlinearity in the superconducting microwave devices. Therefore, this simple accurate enough nonlinear circuit... 

    Enhanced Kerr nonlinearity in a four-level EIT medium

    , Article Journal of Nonlinear Optical Physics and Materials ; Volume 19, Issue 3 , 2010 , Pages 503-515 ; 02188635 (ISSN) Sahrai, M ; Asadpour, S. H ; Sadighi, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    The linear and nonlinear response of a four-level EIT system driven by three coherent fields is investigated. It is found that at appropriate atomic parameters, the Kerr nonlinearity can clearly be enhanced. It is also demonstrated that the maximal Kerr nonlinearity enters the EIT window, and the corresponding linear and nonlinear absorption suppress. Moreover, we show that nonlinear absorption and Kerr nonlinearity can also be changed via relative phase between driving fields  

    Scale dependence of the directional relationships between coupled time series

    , Article Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment ; Volume 2013, Issue 2 , 2013 ; 17425468 (ISSN) Shirazi, A. H ; Aghamohammadi, C ; Anvari, M ; Bahraminasab, A ; Rahimi Tabar, M. R ; Peinke, J ; Sahimi, M ; Marsili, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Using the cross-correlation of the wavelet transformation, we propose a general method of studying the scale dependence of the direction of coupling for coupled time series. The method is first demonstrated by applying it to coupled van der Pol forced oscillators and coupled nonlinear stochastic equations. We then apply the method to the analysis of the log-return time series of the stock values of the IBM and General Electric (GE) companies. Our analysis indicates that, on average, IBM stocks react earlier to possible common sector price movements than those of GE  

    Jump events in the human heartbeat interval fluctuations

    , Article Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment ; Volume 2019, Issue 8 , 2019 ; 17425468 (ISSN) Hashtroud, A. M ; Mirzahossein, E ; Zarei, F ; Rahimi Tabar, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology

    Jumps are discontinuous variations in time series and one expects that the higher jump activity will cause higher uncertainty in the stochastic behavior of measured time series. Here we study jump events in beat-to-beat fluctuations in the heart rates of healthy subjects, as well as those with congestive heart failure (CHF). The analysis shows that the interbeat time series belong to the class of non-continuous stochastic processes. The estimated drift and diffusion coefficients and jump characteristics of healthy and CHF subjects reveal the distinguishability of two subjects. © 2019 IOP Publishing Ltd and SISSA Medialab srl  

    A nonlinear double-winged adaptive neutralizer for optimum structural vibration suppression

    , Article Communications in Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation ; Volume 8, Issue 2 , 2003 , Pages 113-134 ; 10075704 (ISSN) Jalili, N ; Esmailzadeh, E ; Sharif University of Technology
    A distributed, nonlinear dynamic vibration neutralizer is presented to improve vibration suppression characteristics of harmonically excited structures. The absorber subsection consists of a double-ended cantilever beam carrying intermediate lumped masses. The positions of the moving masses are adjustable along the beam in order to comply with the desired optimal performance. The absorber is assumed to be linearly elastic but with the inextensibility along the neutral axis of the beam. Due to the existence of parametric resonance, nonlinearities of the system begin to affect the motion and hence parametric instability occurs. The necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of... 

    Coupling between microring resonators in presence of Kerr effect

    , Article Optics Communications ; Volume 281, Issue 9 , 2008 , Pages 2644-2650 ; 00304018 (ISSN) Ghadi, A ; Bahrampour, A. R ; Farrahi Moghaddam, R ; Taraz, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    The high degree of intensity values in microring resonators needs a careful treatment of nonlinear phenomena. Nonlinear effects are analyzed in coupling problem of ring-ring directional couplers. It has been observed that the nonlinearity affects the coupling device dramatically, and can be used as controlling techniques in such as coupled resonator optical waveguides. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.

    Estimation of demand function for natural gas in Iran: Evidences based on smooth transition regression models

    , Article Economic Modelling ; Vol. 36, issue , 2014 , pp. 341-347 Kani, A. H ; Abbasspour, M ; Abedi, Z ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper attempts to study the demand function of natural gas in Iran using smooth transition regression model (STR). To this end, gross domestic productions (GDP), real price of natural gas and temperature have been employed as variables explaining the natural gas demand from 1971 to 2009. The results indicate that natural gas demand follows an LSTR1 nonlinear two-regime model if the real price of natural gas is considered as the transition variable. Estimation results also indicate that the slope parameter approximately equals the high value of 10 and the threshold value is 31.82.

    The role of leadership in the synchronization of directed complex networks

    , Article Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment ; Volume 2015, Issue 10 , 2015 ; 17425468 (ISSN) Sheshbolouki, A ; Zarei, M ; Sarbazi Azad, H ; Sharif University of Technology

    Synchronization is a phenomenon that occurs in systems of interacting units, and is widespread in nature, society and technology. Recent studies have enlightened us regarding the interplay between synchronization dynamics and interaction structure. However, most of these studies neglect that real-world networks may actually be directed and disconnected. Here, we study the synchronization of directed networks with multiple leaders using the Kuramoto model. We found that in networks with high driving strength, the steady-state frequency of each node is determined by the linear combination of leaders natural frequencies, with structural coe?cients that can be calculated using the eigenvectors... 

    Nonlinear dynamic analysis of electrostatically actuated single-walled carbon nanotubes using nonlocal elasticity

    , Article Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures ; Volume 12, Issue 7 , 2015 , Pages 1224-1240 ; 16797817 (ISSN) Seyyed Fakhrabadi, M ; Rastgoo, A ; Ahmadian, M. T ; Sharif University of Technology

    The paper investigates the effects of application of nonlocal elasticity theory on electromechanical behaviors of single-walled carbon nanotubes under electrostatic actuation. The influences of different dimensions and boundary conditions on the vibration and dynamic instability of the carbon nanotubes are studied, in detail, using this theory. The results reveal that application of the non-local elasticity theory leads to the higher pull-in voltages for the nonlocal model applied for carbon nanotubes. Thus, in order to have more accurate results, one should apply nonclassical theorems such as the nonlocal elasticity theory to scrutinize the mechanical and electromechanical behaviors of the... 

    Solution of nonlinear fractional differential equations using homotopy analysis method

    , Article Applied Mathematical Modelling ; Volume 34, Issue 6 , 2010 , Pages 1634-1641 ; 0307904X (ISSN) Ganjiani, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this article, the homotopy analysis method has been applied to solve nonlinear differential equations of fractional order. The validity of this method has successfully been accomplished by applying it to find the solution of two nonlinear fractional equations. The results obtained by homotopy analysis method have been compared with those exact solutions. The results show that the solution of homotopy analysis method is good agreement with the exact solution. Crown  

    Higher-order interactions in quantum optomechanics: Analytical solution of nonlinearity

    , Article Photonics ; Volume 4, Issue 4 , 2017 ; 23046732 (ISSN) Khorasani, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    A method is described to solve the nonlinear Langevin equations arising from quadratic interactions in quantum mechanics. While the zeroth order linearization approximation to the operators is normally used, here, first and second order truncation perturbation schemes are proposed. These schemes employ higher-order system operators, and then approximate number operators with their corresponding mean boson numbers only where needed. Spectral densities of higher-order operators are derived, and an expression for the second-order correlation function at zero time-delay has been found, which reveals that the cavity photon occupation of an ideal laser at threshold reaches √6 - 2, in good... 

    Higher-order interactions in quantum optomechanics: Revisiting theoretical foundations

    The theory of quantum optomechanics is reconstructed from first principles by finding a Lagrangian from light's equation of motion and then proceeding to the Hamiltonian. The nonlinear terms, including the quadratic and higher-order interactions, do not vanish under any possible choice of canonical parameters, and lead to coupling of momentum and field. The existence of quadratic mechanical parametric interaction is then demonstrated rigorously, which has been so far assumed phenomenologically in previous studies. Corrections to the quadratic terms are particularly significant when the mechanical frequency is of the same order or larger than the electromagnetic frequency. Further discussions... 

    Solution of coupled system of nonlinear differential equations using homotopy analysis method

    , Article Nonlinear Dynamics ; Volume 56, Issue 1-2 , 2009 , Pages 159-167 ; 0924090X (ISSN) Ganjiani, M ; Ganjiani, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this article, the homotopy analysis method has been applied to solve a coupled nonlinear diffusion-reaction equations. The validity of this method has been successful by applying it for these nonlinear equations. The results obtained by this method have a good agreement with one obtained by other methods. This work illustrates the validity of the homotopy analysis method for the nonlinear differential equations. The basic ideas of this approach can be widely employed to solve other strongly nonlinear problems. © 2008 Springer Science+Business Media B.V  

    Partition function of non-supersymmetric black holes in the supergravity limit

    , Article Modern Physics Letters A ; Volume 23, Issue 22 , 2008 , Pages 1869-1883 ; 02177323 (ISSN) Parvizi, S ; Tavanfar, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, we propose a free energy for general non-supersymmetric black hole attractors (with vanishing D0-brane charge) arising in type IIA(B) superstrings on 3-fold Calabi-Yau, in the supergravity limit. This, by definition, differs from its counterpart BPS free energy by a factor of 4. Correspondingly, a mixed ensemble for these black holes is proposed. © 2008 World Scientific Publishing Company  

    Oscillation of solutions of second-order nonlinear differential equations of Euler type

    , Article Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications ; Volume 326, Issue 2 , 2007 , Pages 1076-1089 ; 0022247X (ISSN) Aghajani, A ; Moradifam, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    We consider the nonlinear Euler differential equation t2 x″ + g (x) = 0. Here g (x) satisfies x g (x) > 0 for x ≠ 0, but is not assumed to be sublinear or superlinear. We present implicit necessary and sufficient condition for all nontrivial solutions of this system to be oscillatory or nonoscillatory. Also we prove that solutions of this system are all oscillatory or all nonoscillatory and cannot be both. We derive explicit conditions and improve the results presented in the previous literature. We extend our results to the extended equation t2 x″ + a (t) g (x) = 0. © 2006 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved  

    Minimal redefinition of the OSV ensemble

    , Article Journal of Mathematical Physics ; Volume 47, Issue 12 , 2006 ; 00222488 (ISSN) Parvizi, S ; Tavanfar, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    In the interesting conjecture, ZBH = Ztop 2, proposed by Ooguri, Strominger, and Vafa (OSV), the black hole ensemble is a mixed ensemble. So if working in the complex polarization, the black hole degeneracy of states as obtained from the ensemble inverse-Laplace integration, generically receives prefactors that do not respect the electric-magnetic duality. One way to handle this, as claimed recently, is working instead of the complex polarization in the real polarization. The other idea would be imposing nontrivial measures for the ensemble sum in the complex polarization. We address this problem in the complex polarization, which is canonical, and upon a redefinition of the OSV ensemble...

    Random motion of strings and related stochastic evolution equations with monotone nonlinearities

    , Article Stochastic Analysis and Applications ; Volume 23, Issue 5 , 2005 , Pages 903-920 ; 07362994 (ISSN) Zamani, S ; Zangeneh, B. Z ; Sharif University of Technology
    A limiting problem for a stochastic evolution equation is studied in the paper. In the equation, the linear operator is non-positive with a pure point spectrum, the non-linearity is monotone, and the Brownian motion is cylindrical. It is shown that, in the limit, the mild solution to the evolution equation tends to the solution of an ordinary Ito equation. Copyright © Taylor & Francis, Inc  

    Three easy ways for separating nonlinear mixtures?

    , Article Signal Processing ; Volume 84, Issue 2 , 2004 , Pages 217-229 ; 01651684 (ISSN) Jutten, C ; Babaie Zadeh, M ; Hosseini, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, we consider the nonlinear Blind Source Separation BSS and independent component analysis (ICA) problems, and especially uniqueness issues, presenting some new results. A fundamental difficulty in the nonlinear BSS problem and even more so in the nonlinear ICA problem is that they are nonunique without a suitable regularization. In this paper, we mainly discuss three different ways for regularizing the solutions, that have been recently explored. © 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved
