Transport of Muonic Atoms.
Abstract
Transport of muonic hydrogen and deuterium atoms in gaseous hydrogen and deuterium is studied in the diffusion approximation and by means of the multiple collision expansion. The diffusion coefficient is derived. Scattering kernels are computed from the kinematics of an inelastic binary collision. The effect of rotations of the target molecules is treated by defining and computing an effective inelastic energy transfer Q_{rm eff}. The Doppler effect is taken into account by averaging the cross sections over the Maxwellian velocity distribution of the target molecules. Numerical results of the timedependent problem in slab geometry are presented. In part two we construct a candidate for a realistic four generation CalabiYau manifold by dividing an algebraic variety in CP_4 x CP_4 with the Z_2 x Z _2 symmetry. A nontrivial embedding of Z _2 x Z_2 in E(6) allows the physically interesting intermediate symmetry; based on PatiSalam SU(2)_{rm L} x SU(2)_{rm R } x SU(4)_{rm C} group. The group of honest symmetries G _{rm H} of the manifold is identified and the transformations properties of quark and lepton fields under G_{rm H} are given.
