In science:

The waves B in condensed matter are related to molecular translations (tr) and librations (lb).
Hierarchic Models of Turbulence, Superfluidity and Superconductivity
The volume of effectons (tr and lb) may contain from less than one, to tens and even thousands of molecules.
Hierarchic Models of Turbulence, Superfluidity and Superconductivity
The liquids are semiclassical systems because their primary (tr) effectons contain less than one molecule and primary (lb) effectons - more than one molecule.
Hierarchic Models of Turbulence, Superfluidity and Superconductivity
The edge-length of primary effectons (tr and lb) or number of molecules in its volume can be considered as the ”parameter of order”.
Hierarchic Models of Turbulence, Superfluidity and Superconductivity
B /2) | Λ |2 , where Λ(Qz ) = R dzχ2 0 (z ) exp(iQz z ), s is the sound velocity, ρ the crystal mass density, lB the magnetic length and χ0 is the wave function in the z- direction.
Comment on "Spin relaxation in quantum Hall systems"
If L > Lb , domains melt continuously and the magnetization has a smooth behavior, independent of system size, and the susceptibility decays as L−2 .
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
Lb ∼ exp[A(J/∆)2 ], where A is a constant of order unity.
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
Setting U /J = 0 and assuming that the critical length scale Lb,H scales as Lb , without the field, i.e.
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
The relevant Lb scaling (5) is derived from extreme statistics.
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
The effect of an external field, in the case the system size is above Lb , is studied in Section IV for Gaussian disorder.
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
For L > Lb our results indicate that the size distribution of the flipped regions as H is swept is not that interesting.
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
We have no analytical argument for the melting rate [or the slope of the m(H )-curve], and note that it is not seemingly, at least, related to Lb .
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
It seems likely that to recover the right exponent (4/3) one has to resort to studying the spanning cluster geometry itself at the critical point with L > Lb .
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
For smaller ∆ Lb becomes large and Hc approaches the vicinity of zero, being thus numerically difficult to define.
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
The exponent, which is α = 2 in Lb scaling, Lb ∼ exp(A/∆α ), is now dependent on Π again.
