**Abstract:**

Tensor reduction is important for multi-loop amplitude calculation. And the projection method is one of the most popular approaches for tensor reduction. However, projection method could be problematic for amplitude with massive fermions due to the inconsistency between helicity and chirality. We propose an approach to extend the projection method to reduce the loop amplitude containing fermion chain with two massive spinors. The extension is achieved by decomposing one of the massive spinors into two specific massless spinors, "null spinor" and "reference spinor". Then the extended projection method can be safely implemented for all the processes including the production of massive fermions. Finally we present the tensor reduction for the virtual

**Abstract:**

Disconnected quark loops are very computer time consuming to calculate in lattice QCD. Stochastic noise methods are generally used to estimate these loops. However, stochastic estimation has large errors in the calculations of these disconnected diagrams. We use symmetric multi-probing source (SMP) method to estimate these disconnected quark loops, the results are compared with

**Abstract:**

In this paper, we attempt to study the Joule-Thomson expansion for the regular black hole in an anti-de Sitter background, and obtain the inversion temperature and curve for the Bardeen-AdS black hole in the extended phase space. We investigate the isenthalpic and inversion curves for the Bardeen-AdS black hole in the

*T*-

*P*plane to find the intersection points between them are exactly the inversion points discriminating the heating process from the cooling one. And, the inversion curve for the regular(Bardeen)-AdS black hole is not closed and there is only a lower inversion curve in contrast with that of the Van der Walls fluid. Most importantly, we find the ratio between the minimum inversion and critical temperature for the regular(Bardeen)-AdS black hole is 0.536622, which is always larger than all the already-known ratios for the singular black hole. This larger ratio for the Bardeen-AdS black hole in contrast with the singular black hole may stem from the fact that there is a repulsive de Sitter core near the origin of the regular black hole.

**Abstract:**

The research of geoneutrino is a new interdisciplinary subject of particle experiments and geo-science. Potassium-40 (

^{40}K) decays contribute roughly 1/3 of the radiogenic heat of the Earth, but it is still missing from the experimental observation. Solar neutrino experiments with liquid scintillators have observed uranium and thorium geoneutrinos and are the most promising in the low-background neutrino detection. In this article, we present the new concept of using liquid-scintillator Cherenkov detectors to detect the neutrino-electron elastic scattering process of

^{40}K geoneutrinos. Liquid-scintillator Cherenkov detectors using a slow liquid scintillator can achieve this goal with both energy and direction measurements for charged particles. Given the directionality, we can significantly suppress the dominant intrinsic background originating from solar neutrinos in conventional liquid-scintillator detectors. We simulated the solar- and geo-neutrino scatterings in the slow liquid scintillator detector, and implemented energy and directional reconstructions for the recoiling electrons. We found that

^{40}K geoneutrinos can be detected with three standard deviation accuracy in a kiloton-scale detector.

**Abstract:**

In this paper, we have explored a new relativistic anisotropic solution of the Einstein field equations for compact stars under embedding class one condition. For this purpose, we use the embedding class one methodology by employing the Karmarkar condition. By using this methodology, we obtain a particular differential equation that connects both the gravitational potentials

**Abstract:**

We present a new method of solving the probability distribution for baryons, antibaryons and mesons at the hadronization of constituent quark and antiquark system. The hadronization is governed by the quark combination rule in the quark combination model developed by the Shandong Group. We use the method of the generating function to derive the outcome of the quark combination rule, which is much simpler and easier to be generalized than the original method. Furthermore, we use the formula of the quark combination rule and its generalization to study the property of multiplicity distribution of net-protons. Taking a naive case of quark number fluctuations and correlations at hadronization, we calculate ratios of multiplicity cumulants of final-state net-protons and discuss the potential applicability of quark combination model in studying hadronic multiplicity fluctuations and the underlying phase transition property in relativistic heavy-ion collisions.
