Chern-Simons number diffusion with hard thermal loops

Guy D. Moore, Chaoran Hu, Berndt Müller
1998 Physical Review D, Particles and fields  
Then we use the extended system to study the diffusion constant for Chern-Simons number.  ...  We argue that this will correctly reproduce the "hard thermal loop" effects of hard degrees of freedom, while giving a local implementation which is numerically tractable.  ...  Diffusion of Chern-Simons number An outstanding question which the method developed here can answer is; what is the diffusion constant for Chern-Simons number N CS in the symmetric electroweak phase, or  ...

Amalgamation is PSPACE-hard [article]

Manuel Bodirsky and Simon Knäuer and Jakub Rydval
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We prove that the computational problem whether a given universal sentence Φ has the amalgamation property is PSPACE-hard, even if Φ is additionally Horn and the signature of Φ only contains relation symbols  ...  PSPACE-hardness of the AP In this section we prove that the problem of deciding whether the class of all finite models of a given universal Horn sentence Φ has the amalgamation property is PSPACE-hard.  ...  We prove the PSPACE-hardness of this problem (Theorem 2) even if all the symbols in the signature have arity at most three. The following questions remain open.  ...

Hardness of Network Satisfaction for Relation Algebras with Normal Representations [article]

Manuel Bodirsky, Simon Knäuer
2020 arXiv   pre-print
If B contains a non-trivial equivalence relation with a finite number of equivalence classes, then the network satisfaction problem for A is NP-hard.  ...  As a second result, we prove hardness if B has domain size at least three and contains no non-trivial equivalence relations but a symmetric atom a with a forbidden triple (a,a,a), that is, a ≰a ∘ a.  ...  Both of our hardness proofs come from the technique of factoring Pol(B) with respect to a congruence with finitely many classes, and using known hardness conditions from corresponding finite-domain constraint  ...

Generic Expression Hardness Results for Primitive Positive Formula Comparison [article]

Simone Bova and Hubie Chen and Matthew Valeriote
2012 arXiv   pre-print
We present two generic hardness results for the studied problems, and discuss evidence that they are optimal and yield, for each of the problems, a complexity trichotomy.  ...  For a complexity class C, we say that the problem PPEQ(A) is C-hard if PPEQ(A) contains a problem PPEQ(B) that is C-hard. We define C-hardness similarly for PPCON(A). Proof .  ...  In this paper, we present two general expression hardness results on the problems of interest.  ...
