Physics at high Q^2 and p^2_t: Summary of DIS 2000
M. Kuze,S. Lola,E. Perez,B. Allanach
Physics , 2000,
Abstract: We summarize the experimental and theoretical results presented in the "Physics at the Highest Q^2 and p^2_t" working group at the DIS 2000 Workshop. High Q^2 and p^2_t processes measured at current and future colliders allow to improve our knowledge of Standard Model (SM) physics, by providing precise measurements of the SM parameters and, consequently, consistency checks of the SM. Moreover, they give information on key quantities for the calculation of the SM expectations in a yet unexplored domain, such as the parton densities of the proton or the photon. In addition to these experimental inputs, higher-order calculations are also needed to obtain precise expectations for SM processes, which are a key ingredient for the searches for new phenomena in high Q^2 and p^2_t processes at current and future experiments. The experimental and theoretical status of SM physics at high Q^2 and p^2_t is reviewed in the first part of this summary, with the remaining being dedicated to physics beyond the Standard Model.
Adsorption of CO2 and H2 on Cu and Zn Micro-Cluster Surfaces Studied by Quantum Chemistry and Theory of Absolute Reaction Rates  [PDF]
Hiroaki Kuze, Shin’ichiro Okude
Open Journal of Physical Chemistry (OJPC) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ojpc.2011.13015
Abstract: Statistical mechanics and semi-empirical molecular orbital theory (PM6) are used to calculate the surface coverage of CO2 and H2 molecular species chemically adsorbed on the surface of Cu and Zn micro clusters. The calculation shows that CO2 is adsorbed well both on the surface of Cu and Zn micro clusters. Although H2 is adsorbed well on the surface of Zn micro clusters, H2 absorption on the surface of Cu micro clusters is much more limited in the pressure range of 20 - 100 atm and temperature range of 200 - 1000 K. Reaction rates are also estimated for some chemical adsorption process of H2 gas using theory of absolute reaction rates. It is found that the values of the reaction rate calculated in the present paper agree reasonably well with the experimental values.
Search for Physics Beyond Standard Model at HERA
Masahiro Kuze
Physics , 1999,
Abstract: The latest status of searches at HERA for physics beyond the Standard Model is summarized on behalf of the H1 and ZEUS collaborations. Emphasis is put on production of resonant particles accessible within the HERA center-of-mass energy, such as leptoquarks, squarks in R-parity-violating supersymmetry or excited fermions. Most of the results presented here are based on the full available statistics of positron-proton collisions, and also preliminary results from very recent electron-proton running are presented. Results which have been updated since this Ringberg '99 Workshop are also included.
Measurements of Neutrino Oscillation Angle theta_13
Masahiro Kuze
Physics , 2013,
Abstract: Neutrinos exhibit an interesting phenomenon called 'neutrino oscillation', in which a neutrino changes its flavor after traveling some flight length. Many experiments measured the mixing angles and mass differences, but the angle $\theta_{13}$ had been unmeasured due to its smallness compared to others. During 2011 and 2012, series of new-generation neutrino experiments reported positive results in $\theta_{13}$ search, and its value has been determined to be just below the previous upper limit. The non-zero result of $\theta_{13}$ is a very good news for future of neutrino physics, since it opens a possibility of measuring the CP violation phase in the lepton sector. An introduction to neutrino oscillation and latest experimental results are presented. A detail is put on Double Chooz reactor experiment, in which the author is involved.
Search for Particles and Forces Beyond the Standard Model at HERA ep and Tevatron p\bar{p} Colliders
Masahiro Kuze,Yves Sirois
Physics , 2002, DOI: 10.1016/j.ppnp.2004.03.001
Abstract: A review of searches for physics beyond the Standard Model carried out at high energy lepton-hadron and hadron-hadron facilities is presented, with emphasis on topics of interest for future data taking at the upgraded Tevatron $p{\bar p}$ and HERA $ep$ colliders. The status and discovery prospects are discussed for leptoquarks, Technicolour and supersymmetry, forbidden lepton and quark flavour-changing processes, extra gauge bosons, excited states of composite fermions, generic contact interactions and extra compactified dimensions.
The KASKA project - a Japanese medium-baseline reactor-neutrino oscillation experiment to measure the mixing angle $θ_{13}$ -
Masahiro Kuze,for the KASKA Collaboration
Physics , 2005,
Abstract: A new reactor-neutrino oscillation experiment, KASKA, is proposed to measure the unknown neutrino-mixing angle $\theta_{13}$ using the world's most powerful Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power station. It will measure a very small deficit of reactor-neutrino flux using three identical detectors, two placed just close to the sources and one at a distance of about 1.8km. Its conceptual design and physics reach are discussed.

Abstract: Ground based in-situ measurements of carbon dioxide (CO 2) and methane (CH 4) at the dry lakebed at Railroad Valley (RRV) playa, Nevada, USA (38°30.234′ N, 115°41.604′ W, elevation 1437 m) were conducted over a five day period from 20–25 June 2010. The playa is a flat, desert site with virtually no vegetation, an overall size of 15 km × 15 km and is approximately 110 km south-west of the nearest city, Ely (elevation 1962 m, inhabitants 4000). The measurements were taken in support of the vicarious calibration experiment to validate column-averaged dry air mole fractions of CO 2 and CH 4 (X CO2 and X CH4) retrieved from the Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT) which was launched in January 2009. This work reports on ground-based in-situ measurements of CO 2 and CH 4 from RRV playa and describes comparisons made between in-situ data and X CO2 and X CH4 from GOSAT.

Atmospheric Measurement Techniques (AMT) & Discussions (AMTD) , 2012,
Abstract: The Thermal And Near infrared Sensor for carbon Observation Fourier-Transform Spectrometer (TANSO-FTS) onboard the Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT) (nicknamed "Ibuki") has been providing global space-borne observations of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) since 2009. In this paper, we first describe the version V150.151 operational Level 1 algorithms that produce radiance spectra from the acquired interferograms. Second, we will describe the on-orbit characteristics and calibration of TANSO-FTS. Overall function and performance such as signal to noise ratio and spectral resolution are within design objectives. Correction methods of small on-orbit degradations and anomalies, which have been found since launch, are described. Lastly, calibration of TANSO Cloud and Aerosol Imager (TANSO-CAI) are summarized.

Abstract: Mapping rice cultivation is indispensable for monitoring food supply conditions in Bangladesh because of the economical importance of the crop for supporting ever increasing population in the country. In this paper, we extract the rice paddy field using the MODIS satellite data for five districts of Pabna, Manikganj, Sherpur, Sylhet, and Gazipur, each of which is characterized with its own aspects in terms of rice cultivation. Land classification is implemented using the vegetation index information derived from the red (band 1) and near-infrared (band 2) bands of MODIS 8-day composite time series data for the two time periods of 2001-2003 and 2011-2013. Results of unsupervised classification indicate that the paddy area coverage increased about 4% and 1% in Gazipur and Sylhet, respectively. In Pabna, Manikganj, and Sherpur, on the other hand, paddy area decreased by 10%, 2% and 5%, respectively, whereas notable increase of 12%, 2% and 7% was found in homestead area coverage, which is becoming more and more important for better management of small-scale agroforestry. At the same time, in Sherpur and Sylhet, forest area increased by 1% and 2% over the same time period. As a validation of these results, the changes detected in Gazipur are compared with those previously derived from the analysis of Landsat data with higher spatial resolution of 30 m as compared with that of MODIS (250 m). Also, the seasonal rice cropping pattern is studied in these five districts for discriminating cultivated rice types. These changes suggest that as a whole, efforts are being made to increase the food production, though the influence of population pressure and economic growth is apparent in these regions.
Agricultural Land Cover Change in Gazipur, Bangladesh, in Relation to Local Economy Studied Using Landsat Images  [PDF]
Tarulata Shapla, Jonggeol Park, Chiharu Hongo, Hiroaki Kuze
Advances in Remote Sensing (ARS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ars.2015.43017
Abstract: Land classification is conducted in Gazipur district, located in the northern neighborhood of Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Images of bands 1 - 5 and 7 of Landsat 4 - 5 TM and Landsat 7 ETM+ imagery recorded in years 2001, 2005 and 2009 are classified using unsupervised classification with the technique of image segmentation. It is found that during the eight year period, paddy area increased from 30% to 37%, followed by the increase in the homestead (55% to 57%) and urban area (1% to 3%). These changes occurred at the expense of the decrease in forest land cover (14% to 3%). In the category of homestead, the presence of different kinds of vegetation often makes it difficult to separate the category from paddy field, though paddy exhibits accuracy of 93.70% - 99.95%, which is better than the values for other categories. In addition, the analysis based on digital elevation model reveals that paddy cultivation is implemented in lowland rather than highland. Homestead areas have spread from south (low elevation) to north (high elevation), in association with the decrease in forest-covered areas.
