**Abstract:**

Understanding the thermodynamic phase transition of black holes can provide a deep insight into the fundamental properties of black hole gravity to establish the theory of quantum gravity. We investigate the condition and latent heat of phase transition for non-linear charged AdS black holes using Maxwell's equal-area law. In addition, we analyze the boundary and curve of the two-phase coexistence area in the expanded phase space. We suggest that the phase transition of the non-linear charged AdS black hole with the fixed temperature (

*D*-meson correlation function are considered, and the NLP corrections from the high-twist

*D*-meson LCDAs and the

*D*-meson LCDAs, the

*SU*(3) flavor symmetry breaking effects are predicted as

**Abstract:**

The strong coupling constants are basic quantities that carry information on the strong interactions among the baryon and meson multiplets as well as information on the nature and internal structures of the involved hadrons. These parameters are introduced in the transition matrix elements of various decays as main inputs and play key roles in analyses of experimental data including various hadrons. We derive the strong coupling constants among the doubly heavy spin-

*π*,

*K*, and

*η*, using the light-cone QCD. The values obtained for these constants under study may be used to construct the strong potentials among the doubly heavy spin-3/2 baryons and light pseudoscalar mesons.

*U*(1)

*SU*

*SO*(3) of the proton-neutron symplectic model (PNSM) are considered. Closed analytical expressions are obtained for the matrix elements of the basic building blocks of the PNSM and the

*Sp*(12,

*R*) symplectic generators, allowing the computation of matrix elements of other physical operators as well. The computational technique developed in the present study generally provides us with the required algebraic tool for performing realistic symplectic-based shell-model calculations of nuclear collective excitations. Utilizing two simple examples, we illustrate the application of the theory.

**Abstract:**

A strong background field drastically changes the vacuum structure and proper basis of a system in both classical and quantum mechanics, e.g., the Landau levels in a background magnetic field. This is true even for a rotating system. In such a system, the usual set of plane-wave states would no longer be suitable as a starting point of perturbation. Alternatively and straightforwardly, in a rapidly and globally rotating system, it is better to reformulate the perturbation computation in principle. In this study, we completed the first step for the spin-1 field, which includes solving the Proca equation in the presence of a background rotation and completing its canonical quantization. We show that because of the symmetry, the eigen states are actually the same as those of Maxwell equations in cylindrical coordinates. The propagator as well as the near-central approximation were obtained by assuming that the vorticity areas are very small in the relativistic QGP.

**Abstract:**

The scission point model is improved by considering the excitation-dependent liquid drop model to calculate mass distributions for neutron-induced actinide nuclei fission. Excitation energy effects influence the deformations of light and heavy fragments. The improved scission point model shows a significant advance with regard to accuracy for calculating pre-neutron-emission mass distributions of neutron-induced typical actinide fission with incident-neutron-energies up to 99.5 MeV. The theoretical frame assures that the improved scission point model is suitable for evaluating the fission fragment mass distributions, which will provide guidance for studying fission physics and designing nuclear fission engineering and nuclear transmutation systems.

**Abstract:**

Supernova remnants are supposed to be the most possible sources of cosmic rays. However, alternative sources of cosmic rays, such as an active galactic nucleus, gamma-ray bursts, and pulsars, have not be excluded. In this study, we investigate the possibility of cosmic rays being generated by pulsars. The pulsar is simply described as a rotational magnetic dipole, the so-called Hertzian magnetic dipole, an exact solution of the d'Alembert equations. In the rotational magnetic dipole field, charged particles experience an accelerated electric field with their radiation reaction. The particles, which are initially static out of the light cylinder radius, can be accelerated up to a high energy.

**Abstract:**

Recently, a de-Sitter epoch has been found in the new model of loop quantum cosmology, which is governed by the scalar constraint with both Euclidean and Lorentz terms. The singularity free bounce in the new LQC model and the emergent cosmology constant strongly suggest that the effective stress-energy tensor induced by quantum corrections must violate the standard energy conditions. In this study, we perform an explicit calculation to analyze the behaviors of specific representative energy conditions, i.e., average null, strong, and dominant energy conditions. We reveal that the average null energy condition is violated at all times, while the dominant energy condition is violated only at a period around the bounce point. The strong energy condition is violated not only at a period around the bounce point but also in the whole period from the bounce point to the classical phase corresponding to the de Sitter period. Our results will shed some light on the construction of a wormhole and time machine, which usually require exotic matter to violate energy conditions.
