Induced fractional valley number in graphene with topological defects
Angel E. Obispo,Marcelo Hott
Physics , 2014, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.91.035404
Abstract: We report on the possibility of valley number fractionalization in graphene with a topological defect that is accounted for in Dirac equation by a pseudomagnetic field. The valley number fractionalization is attributable to an imbalance on the number of one particle states in one of the two Dirac points with respect to the other and it is related to the flux of the pseudomagnetic field. We also discuss the analog effect the topological defect might lead in the induced spin polarization of the charge carriers in graphene.

Abstract: an arrangement in sequences of latin squares was demonstrated to be statistically efficient to detect the presence of residual effects in the experimentation with milk cows. with this purpose, the milk production of five cows was simulated in the application of three treatments during three periods of 15 days each. a program was generated to estimate the residual effects, and other three to be executed by the proc glm of sas: one for a complete model where all the present sources of variation were included, other to detect at least a period with residual effect, and finally a model similar to a classic latin square without taking into account the residual effects. the sequence of latin squares allowed to detect the residual effects of treatments and the calculation of the least squares means corrected by this effect.

Abstract: to evaluate the relationship between type of diet and microbiology quality of cow, hen, and pig manure used as fertilizers, we collected samples of each manure (m) from farms located in aragua, carabobo, and yaracuy states, venezuela. on the basis of a completely randomized experimental design with four repetitions, the following treatments were compared: bovine (b), poultry (g), and pork (c) manures, in combination with two different types of diets (d1 and d2) provided to the animals, for six treatments. samples were processed and analyzed for total bacteria and fungi contents, and total and fecal coliform bacteria. there was not a specific effect of the type of diet on the number of bacteria and fungi among the manures. the higher content of bacteria and fungi was observed in bovine and poultry manures, respectively. in general, the amount of fecal coliforms found in the manures ranked between 2 x 106 to 7 x 107 mpn/g. these values exceed those values internationally allowed for these pathogens in the manures used as fertilizers. manures were grouped on the basis of their similarities of microbial loads, pathogens or fertilizer conditions, in three well defined groups: i: bd1 and bd2, ii: gd1, gd2 and cd1, and iii: cd2. group i, with less stable conditions, was associated to the mineralization and higher number of bacteria. the second was more stable as organic fertilizer with lesser capacity to immobilize the n, but with a high risk for the public health due to its high load of pathogens. the third group had the highest risk for public health that compromises its use as organic fertilizer.
