In science:

Suppose that (1) the minimal polynomial of π is not of the form x2n + axn + qn , (2) the field K + has no proper subfields other than Q, and (3) the field K + is not the maximal real subfield of a cyclotomic field.
On the existence of absolutely simple abelian varieties of a given dimension over an arbitrary field
Since π is ordinary, the field L = Q(πd ) is a CM-field, and its maximal real subfield L+ is a proper subfield of K + .
On the existence of absolutely simple abelian varieties of a given dimension over an arbitrary field
We find that the maximal real subfield of Q(ζ ) is a subfield of K + , and since K + is not itself the maximal real subfield of a cyclotomic field (by assumption), we find that the maximal real subfield of Q(ζ ) must be Q, so that Q(ζ ) is either a quadratic field or Q itself.
On the existence of absolutely simple abelian varieties of a given dimension over an arbitrary field
For example, the field is irregular near the surface of a superconductor in an external magnetic field if the Abrikosov flux lattice is disordered; depending on the experimental conditions, the magnetic field inhomogeneities may be weak and smooth, or the field may be concentrated in an irregular array of flux tubes.
Paraxial propagation of a quantum charge in a random magnetic field
This is due to the fact that the fractional supersymmetry generator changes the weight of the fields by 1/3 (or 1/f if there are f component fields in the superfield).

Note, that in general case electric field E is the sum of external and internal field, but hereafter we suppose the absence of external field.
Random field based model of mixed ferroelectrics phase diagram
For fields with linear field equations, the perturbations of the field itself will spread.
Defining Entropy Bounds
But even for fields with self-coupling which allow classical field solitons that do not spread with time, any quantum state of the field which is non-vacuum at some time will inevitably have that region spread with time as a result of the quantum uncertainty principle.
Defining Entropy Bounds
In order to find the scaling between the external field and the random field strength we have taken from Fig. 5(a) the crossing points of magnetization curves with a fixed magnetization values at external fields Hm for different random field strength values ∆.
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
Then we will discuss the gravitational interactions between scalar field (or Dirac field or vector field ) and gravitational field.
Gauge Theory of Gravity
For scalar field, if the gravitational field is not so strong and its variations with space-time is not so great, we can select a local inertial reference system where gravity is completely shielded, which is shown in eq.(5.23), where we can not directly see any coupling between gravitational gauge field and scalar field.
Gauge Theory of Gravity
With these findings, we want to point out that generalized free fields are rather well-behaved Wightman fields, which moreover are “closer” to interacting quantum fields than free Klein-Gordon fields.
Generalized free fields and the AdS-CFT correspondence
To calculate LS and hl i for an initial field-line separation r0 , we introduce into each snapshot of the magnetic field 2,000 pairs of field-line tracers whose initial separation v ector r0 is perpendicular to the local field.
