      John Nash has proposed a new theory of gravity. We define a Nash-tensor equal to the curvature tensor appearing in the Nash field equations for empty space, and calculate its components for two cases: 1. A static, spherically ...

      Doubrov, Boris; Ferapontov, Eugene V.; Kruglikov, Boris; Novikov, Vladimir (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017-06)
      We investigate a class of multi-dimensional two-component systems of Monge-Ampère type that can be viewed as generalisations of heavenly type equations appearing in a self-dual Ricci-flat geometry. Based on the Jordan-Kronecker ...

      Brauner, Tomas; Kadam, Saurabh (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017-11)
      The thermodynamics of quantum chromodynamics at low temperatures and in sufficiently strong magnetic fields is governed by neutral pions. We analyze the interacting system of neutral pions and photons at zero baryon chemical ...
