True Collapse and False Collapse [article]

Philip Pearle
1998 arXiv   pre-print
It is argued that various "decoherence" based approaches, illustrated by models in which a density matrix undergoes "False Collapse," do not satisfactorily resolve these problems of SQT.  ...  It is shown how the model based upon the Continuous Spontaneous Localization (CSL) theory, in which an individual statevector undergoes "True Collapse," gives a satisfactory description of events.  ...  It suggests that density matrix's False Collapse only makes sense if, actually, it corresponds to statevector's True Collapse.  ...

Collapse Dynamics and Collapse Models

Richard B. Larson
1977 Symposium - International astronomical union  
In this report we shall discuss briefly the current status of theoretical attempts to understand this problem, based on calculations of the dynamics of collapsing clouds and protostars.  ...  There are two reasons for a nonuniform collapse: (1) any initial density inhomogeneities in a collapsing cloud tend to be amplified because the densest regions collapse fastest, and (2) the collapse of  ...  The nonhomologous collapse found in the spherical case occurs also in the two-and three-dimensional collapse calculations (see below), and has many important implications for the later evolution of collapsing  ...

In Nairobi, the speed of urban growth is producing a parallel threat of architectural failure: in a recent spate of tower block collapses, many have died.  ...  Nairobians describe collapsed tower blocks as "fake," referring to ideas of the counterfeit, as well as anxieties about morally suspect economies.  ...  Of the tenants I met who had been displaced by collapses, most were back living in tenements similar to those that had collapsed.  ...

Gravitational collapse: expanding and collapsing regions

M. Sharif, G. Abbas
2010 General Relativity and Gravitation  
The minimal pressure provides the gateway to explore the expanding and collapsing regions.  ...  We investigate the expanding and collapsing regions by taking two well-known spherically symmetric spacetimes.  ...  We find that in the region, where collapse occurs, density re-mains finite which means that collapse does not end as singularity and hence known as non-singular collapse.  ...

Shock-Induced Bubble Collapse versus Rayleigh Collapse

Anil Kapahi, Chao-Tsung Hsiao, Georges L Chahine
2015 Journal of Physics, Conference Series  
This paper compares two physical mechanisms for the collapse of a bubble near a rigid wall: a traveling shock-induced collapse and a Rayleigh-like collapse due to a uniform rise of the pressure around  ...  scenarios, uniform collapse (solid lines) and shock collapse (dashed lines).  ...  The Rayleigh-like collapse scenario results in a faster collapse compared to the shock-induced collapse scenario for the same driving pressure.  ...

Knots in collapsible and non-collapsible balls [article]

Bruno Benedetti, Frank H. Lutz
2013 arXiv   pre-print
We exhibit a second 3-ball B_12,38 with 12 vertices that is collapsible and evasive, but not shellable.  ...  We construct the first explicit example of a simplicial 3-ball B_15,66 that is not collapsible. It has only 15 vertices.  ...  A (not necessarily pure) d-complex C is collapsible if it collapses onto a single vertex.  ...

Texture collapse

T. Prokopec, A. Sornborger, R. H. Brandenberger
1992 Physical Review D, Particles and fields  
We study single-texture collapse using a leapfrog discretization method on a 30X30X30 spatial lattice.  ...  For radially asymmetric cases, contraction of one axis (pancake case) slightly reduces collapse time and critical winding, and contraction of two axes (cigar case) reduces collapse time and critical winding  ...  This means that no collapse occurs.  ...
