The paper reviews and extends the magnetic Aharonov-Bohm effect (persistent current, resistance oscillation) in normal-metal rings including spin-independent and spin-dependent hopping, Zeeman splitting, magnetic textures and wheels, ring rotation and weak coupling, as well as the electric Aharonov-Bohm effect ("persistent charge") in small metallic contacts. We then discuss dynamical screening effects in a surface charge in a metal. Energy dissipation due to motion of the surface charge has a singularity at the velocity of motion equal to the phonon propagation velocity. Surface image of an external charge inside the metal is strongly distorted at the velocity of motion larger than the Fermi velocity.

Labor-force Participation of Married Women in Turkey: A Study of the Added-Worker Effect and the Discouraged-Worker Effect Karaoglan, D.; Okten, C. (Taylor & Francis, 2015)We analyze married women's labor-supply responses to their husbands' job loss (added-worker effect) and worsening of unemployment conditions (discouraged-worker effect). We construct six two-year pseudopanels based on the ...
Effective mass enhancement in two-dimensional electron systems: the role of interaction and disorder effects Asgari, R.; Davoudi, B.; Tanatar, B. (Elsevier, 2004-04)Recent experiments on two-dimensional (2D) electron systems have found a sharp increase in the effective mass of electrons with decreasing electron density. In an effort to understand this behavior we employ the many-body ...
