### Calculating Length Scales from Passive Scalar Field

I have a set of PLIF images of a passive scalar advected in a turbulent flow. I'm wondering if it's possible to estimate the integral length-scale based on the images of the passive scalar, and if ...

### Scaling in Vlasov equations

This question is in reference to the paper, http://arxiv.org/abs/1301.7182 What exactly is the argument being made on page 6 and 7? One deduces that the function $\Delta$ has to be such that, ...

### How (why!?) does one introduce an UV cut-off in dimensional regularization?

This question is in reference to the confusing equation 3.7 (page 14) of this paper. One sees the 1-loop answers in their theory as given in their A.7 and A.8 on page 20. Each of the terms is a ...

### Questions about classical and quantum scale invariance

This is kind of a continuation of this and this previous questions. Say one has a free "classical" field theory which is scale invariant and one develops a perturbative classical solution for an ...

### Does graphene actually remain strong for macroworld engineering?

I heard that people envision strong structural materials made out of graphene, but I heard it may weaken when being stack in layers. Is graphene viable for macroworld structural engineering or is it ...

### Using Moments to influence the thickness of beams in structure?

Are moments relevant to the thicknesses of beams in a structure (ie. the larger the moment the thicker the beam)?
