Orbital physics of polar Fermi molecules
O. Dutta,T. Sowiński,M. Lewenstein
Physics , 2012, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.87.023619
Abstract: We study a system of polar dipolar fermions in a two-dimensional optical lattice and show that multi-band Fermi-Hubbard model is necessary to discuss such system. By taking into account both on-site, and long-range interactions between different bands, as well as occupation-dependent inter- and intra-band tunneling, we predict appearance of novel phases in the strongly-interacting limit.

Abstract: Nadia Sawicka,* Maria Gryczyńska,* Jerzy Sowiński, Monika Tamborska-Zedlewska, Marek Rucha a Department of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Internal Medicine, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland*These authors contributed equally to this workAbstract: Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis impairment in anorexia nervosa is marked by hypercortisolemia, and psychiatric disorders occur in the majority of patients with Cushing’s syndrome. Here we report a patient diagnosed with anorexia nervosa who also developed Cushing’s syndrome. A 26-year-old female had been treated for anorexia nervosa since she was 17 years old, and also developed depression and paranoid schizophrenia. She was admitted to the Department of Endocrinology, Metabolism, and Internal Medicine with a preliminary diagnosis of Cushing’s syndrome. Computed tomography revealed a 27 mm left adrenal tumor, and she underwent laparoscopic adrenalectomy. She was admitted to hospital 6 months after this procedure, at which time she did not report any eating or mood disorder. This is a rare case report of a patient with anorexia nervosa in whom Cushing’s syndrome was subsequently diagnosed. Diagnostic difficulties were caused by the signs and symptoms presenting in the course of both disorders, ie, hypercortisolemia, osteoporosis, secondary amenorrhea, striae, hypokalemia, muscle weakness, and depression.Keywords: anorexia nervosa, Cushing’s syndrome, adrenalectomy, osteoporosis
Quantum phase transition in a shallow one-dimensional optical lattice
Tomasz Sowiński
Physics , 2015, DOI: 10.1364/JOSAB.32.000670
Abstract: In this article the extended Bose-Hubbard model describing ultra-cold atoms confined in a shallow, one-dimensional optical lattice is introduced and studied by the exact diagonalization approach. All parameters of the model are related to the only relevant parameter controlled experimentally -- the depth of the optical potential. Changes in a shape of the insulating lobe in the phase diagram of the system are explored and the value of the critical tunneling for which the system undergoes the phase transition (from the insulating to the superfluid phase) is predicted. It is shown that the value of critical tunneling is substantially affected by the presence of the tunnelings to distant sites of the optical lattice. The results may have some importance in upcoming experiments on quantum quench through phase transition points.
Slightly imbalanced system of a few attractive fermions in a one-dimensional harmonic trap
Tomasz Sowiński
Physics , 2015, DOI: 10.1007/s00601-015-1017-5
Abstract: The ground-state properties of the two-flavored mixture of a few attractive fermions confined in a one-dimensional harmonic trap is studied. It is shown that for slightly imbalanced system the pairing between fermions of opposite spins has completely different features that in the balanced case. The fraction of correlated pairs is suppressed by the presence of additional particle and another uncorrelated two-body orbital dominates in the ground-state of the system.
One-dimensional Bose-Hubbard model with pure three-body interactions
Tomasz Sowiński
Physics , 2013, DOI: 10.2478/s11534-014-0481-8
Abstract: The extended Bose-Hubbard model with pure three-body local interactions is studied using the Density Matrix Renormalization Group approach. The shapes of the first two insulating lobes are discussed, and the values of the critical tunneling for which the system undergoes the quantum phase transition from insulating to superfluid phase are predicted. It is shown that stability of insulating phases, in contrast to the standard Bose-Hubbard model, is enhanced for larger fillings. It is also shown that, on the tip of the boundary of the insulating phase, the model under consideration belongs to the Berenzinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless universality class.
Ground-state entanglement of spin-1 bosons undergoing superexchange interactions in optical superlattices
Artur Barasiński,Wies?aw Leoński,Tomasz Sowiński
Physics , 2014,
Abstract: We discuss a model with ultra-cold atoms confined in optical superlattices. In particular, we study the ground-state properties of two spin-1 bosons trapped in a double-well potential. Depending on the external magnetic field and biquadratic interactions different phases of magnetic order are realized. Applying von Neumann entropy and number of relevant orbitals, we quantify the bipartite entanglement between particles. Changing the values of the parameters determining superlattices, we can switch the system between differently entangled states.
Mean-field approaches to the Bose-Hubbard model with three-body local interaction
Tomasz Sowiński,Ravindra W. Chhajlany
Physics , 2014, DOI: 10.1088/0031-8949/2014/T160/014038
Abstract: The zero temperature properties of the generalized Bose-Hubbard model including three-body interactions are studied on a mean-field level. We obtain analytical results using the so-called perturbative mean-field method and more detailed numerical results using the Gutzwiller product state variational Ansatz. These two approaches yield equivalent results which compare well on a qualitative level with recent exact results obtained in the literature.

Why Movement Is Captured by Music, but Less by Speech: Role of Temporal Regularity
Simone Dalla Bella, Anita Bia?uńska, Jakub Sowiński
PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0071945
Abstract: Music has a pervasive tendency to rhythmically engage our body. In contrast, synchronization with speech is rare. Music’s superiority over speech in driving movement probably results from isochrony of musical beats, as opposed to irregular speech stresses. Moreover, the presence of regular patterns of embedded periodicities (i.e., meter) may be critical in making music particularly conducive to movement. We investigated these possibilities by asking participants to synchronize with isochronous auditory stimuli (target), while music and speech distractors were presented at one of various phase relationships with respect to the target. In Exp. 1, familiar musical excerpts and fragments of children poetry were used as distractors. The stimuli were manipulated in terms of beat/stress isochrony and average pitch to achieve maximum comparability. In Exp. 2, the distractors were well-known songs performed with lyrics, on a reiterated syllable, and spoken lyrics, all having the same meter. Music perturbed synchronization with the target stimuli more than speech fragments. However, music superiority over speech disappeared when distractors shared isochrony and the same meter. Music’s peculiar and regular temporal structure is likely to be the main factor fostering tight coupling between sound and movement.
Two-flavor mixture of a few fermions of different mass in a one-dimensional harmonic trap
Daniel P?cak,Mariusz Gajda,Tomasz Sowiński
Physics , 2015,
Abstract: A system of two species of fermions of different mass confined in a one-dimensional harmonic trap is studied with an exact diagonalization approach. It is shown independently on the number of particles that a mass difference between fermionic species induces a separation in the lighter flavor system. The mechanism of emerging of separated phases is explained phenomenologically and confirmed with the help of a direct inspection of the ground-state of the system. Finally, it is shown that the separation driven by a mass difference, in contrast to the separation induced by a difference of populations, is robust to the interactions with thermal environment.
