2020 JINR Summer Student Programme is shifted to 2021


In light of the implementation of certain measures aimed at prevention of COVID-19 spreading in Russia and worldwide and following the JINR Order on the suspension of all education activities and events, the Organising Committee of the Summer Student Programme has to inform you that the SSP is shifted to 2021. The applicants selected and approved by the management of the laboratories this year will be able to attend JINR starting from February 2021. Their arrival will also be possible within the summer period 2021, if it still satisfies their interests and does not interfere with the plans of the project supervisors.

New publication in Nature Physics with JINR participation


On 13 April, a scientific paper by an international scientific group was published in Nature Physics. A LIT staff member O. Chuluunbaatar and a BLTP employee Yu. V. Popov were members of the group in the frames of JINR international cooperation. The group conducted a kinematically complete experimental measurement of characteristics of Compton scattering at free atoms using the highly efficient method of COLD Target Recoil Ion Momentum Spectroscopy (COLTRIMS). The group also provided a relevant theoretical description of it.

Experimentalists from the Goethe University (Frankfurt am Main, Germany) targeted a strong photon beam of the Petra III synchrotron (DESY, Hamburg) through the helium supersonic flow.

The COLTRIMS method allowed measuring not only the scattered electron momentum but also the momentum of helium recoil-ion for separate scattering processes. Taking into account the law of pulse energy conservation, it gave an opportunity to fully restore the kinematic properties of the scattering process. Moreover, the use of the method solved the problem of a very low cross-section of the Compton ionization in the photon energy diapason of several KeV that is about 6 times lower than the typical cross-section of the photoabsorption. All this opens opportunities for the use of Compton scattering as yet another instrument of atomic spectroscopy along with such powerful methods of study of atoms and molecules as (e, 2e), (ion, ion e) and others. Theoretical description of this phenomenon is based on the calculations carried out at the supercomputer “Govorun”.

A Three-Point Grid Based Polynomial Prediction


We are glad to bring to your attention a new preprint «A Three-Point Grid Based Polynomial Prediction» P5-2020-1 published by the JINR Publishing Department. The author of the paper is N. D. Dikusar. Abstract: Within the framework of the recently proposed basic element method (BEM), a new approach is made to the solution of the problem of polynomial prediction and extrapolation of the sixth order for smooth functions. The one step forward forecast is performed using two fifth degree polynomials. The formulae for the coefficients of BEM-polynomials depend on the grid step, the values of the function and its first derivative at the nodes of two three-point grids. The method was tested on the numerical solution of the Cauchy problem for ODE. The efficiency of numerical integration is ensured by a threefold calculation of the right side of the equation and the O(h5) accuracy of the solution. The BEM-prediction can serve as the core for the development and creation of effective algorithms for numerically solving Cauchy problems for ODEs, including stiff ones.
