    • Identification of quantum scars via phase-space localization measures 

      Santos, Lea F.; Pilatowsky-Cameo, Sa ́ul; Villase ̃nor, David; Bastarrachea-Magnan, Miguel A.; Lerma-Hern ́andez, Sergio; Hirsch, Jorge G. (arXiv preprint, 2021-07-14)
      There is no unique way to quantify the degree of delocalization of quantum states in unbounded continuous spaces. In this work, we explore a recently introduced localization measure that quantifies the portion of the ...
    • In pursuit of a wild patience 

      Hirsch, Miriam (Routledge / Taylor & Francis, 2014)
      This essay explores how the concept of wild patience informs our practice of teaching and learning in classrooms and in teacher education; how it crafts imaginative spaces in curriculum design, implementation, and evaluation ...
    • Interacting bosons in a triple well: Preface of many-body quantum chaos 

      Santos, Lea F.; Wittmann W., Karin; Castro, E.R.; Foester, Angela (, 2021-11)
      Systems of interacting bosons in triple-well potentials are of significant theoretical and experimental interest. They are explored in contexts that range from quantum phase transitions and quantum dynamics to semiclassical ...

      Babich, Harvey (Yeshiva University Stern College for Women, 2021)
      This article is a companion to the prior article, “Dinosaurs and Wooly Mammoths - is there a Torah Viewpoint?” [1] and the rationale for publication is the same -- numerous Jewish day schools and yeshivot visit the ...
    • Jewish day school wounds and what we can do about them 

      Hirsch, Miriam (Taylor & Francis, 2017)
      This article is based upon a qualitative research study that examined 95 school stories written by Jewish female teacher candidates in an undergraduate education course. Many candidates wrote inspirational or humorous ...
    • The Jewish People under the microscope 

      Babich, Harvey (Stern College for Women, Torah Activities Council (TAC), Yeshiva University, 2000)
      As Orthodox Jewish communities grow in size and numbers, medical and health care professionals have become increasingly aware of the special requirements for this unique population. Appropriate articles in medical journals ...
    • The kof, reverse evolution, and the adnei ha-sadeh 

      Babich, Harvey (Stern College for Women, Torah Activities Council (TAC), Yeshiva University, 2002)
      As noted in Chagigah (16a), human beings hove three characteristics in common with, and three other characteristics distinguishing them from, animals. The similarities include eating and drinking, elimination of wastes, ...
    • Level Repulsion and Dynamics in the Finite One-Dimensional Anderson Model. 

      Torres-Herrera, E. Jonathan; Méndez-Bermúdez, J. A.; Santos, Lea F. (Philip Allan Publishers Limited, 2019-09-12)
      This work shows that dynamical features typical of full random matrices can be observed also in the simple finite one-dimensional (1D) noninteracting Anderson model with nearest neighbor couplings. In the thermodynamic ...
    • Level repulsion and dynamics in the finite one-dimensional Anderson model. 

      Santos, Lea F.; Torres-Herrera, E. Jonathan; Méndez-Bermúdez, J. A. (American Physical Society, 2019-08-29)
      Abstract This work shows that dynamical features typical of full random matrices can be observed also in the simple finite one-dimensional (1D) noninteracting Anderson model with nearest-neighbor couplings. In the ...
    • Localization and the effects of symmetries in the thermalization properties of one-dimensional quantum systems. 

      Santos, Lea F.; Rigol, Marcos (American Physical Society, 2010)
      We study how the proximity to an integrable point or to localization as one approaches the atomic limit, as well as the mixing of symmetries in the chaotic domain, may affect the onset of thermalization in finite one-dimensional ...
    • Locusts and elephants 

      Babich, Harvey (Office of the Dean and Office of Admissions, Stern College for Women, YU, 2006)
      This essay is a discussion of two creatures, locusts and elephants, from a Torah U'Madda perspective. Both had an impact on Jewish history and both are discussed in the Talmud.
    • Noach and the tayva some Torah, some biology 

      Babich, Harvey (Stern College for Women, Torah Activities Council (TAC), Yeshiva University, 2001)
      Everyone is familiar with the story of Noach and the tayva. The intent of this article is not to review the entire incident in depth, but to focus on those aspects that have biological overtones. However, for continuity ...
    • A note on rabbinic titles and the communities that create them. 

      Fine, Steven (The Michael Scharf Publication Trust of Yeshiva University Press ; Maggid Books, 2018)
    • On stability of fixed points and chaos in fractional systems. 

      Edelman, Mark (Chaos, 2018)
      In this paper, we propose a method to calculate asymptotically period two sinks and define the range of stability of fixed points for a variety of discrete fractional systems of the order 0<α<2 . The method is tested on ...
    • On the fractional Eulerian numbers and equivalence of maps with long term power-law memory (integral Volterra equations of the second kind) to Grünvald-Letnikov fractional difference (differential) equations 

      Edelman, Mark (Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science, 2015)
      In this paper, we consider a simple general form of a deterministic system with power-law memory whose state can be described by one variable and evolution by a generating function. A new value of the system's variable is ...
