 2017-10-0411:17 [FZJ-2017-06830] Preprint Helias, M. Optimal sequence memory in driven random networks Autonomous randomly coupled neural networks display a transition to chaos at a critical coupling strength. We here investigate the effect of a time-varying input on the onset of chaos and the resulting consequences for information processing. [...] 2017-09-1312:42 [FZJ-2017-06532] Preprint et al Perfect spike detection via time reversal Spiking neuronal networks are usually simulated with three main simulation schemes: the classical time-driven and event-driven schemes, and the more recent hybrid scheme. All three schemes evolve the state of a neuron through a series of checkpoints: equally spaced in the first scheme and determined neuron-wise by spike events in the latter two. [...] 2017-09-0509:26 [FZJ-2017-06364] Preprint et al Importance of d-wave contributions in the charge symmetry breaking reaction $dd \to {}^4\text{He}\pi^0$ This letter reports the first measurement of the contribution of higher partial waves in the charge symmetry breaking reaction $dd \to {}^4\text{He}\pi^0$ using the WASA-at-COSY detector setup at an excess energy of $Q = 60$ MeV. The determined differential cross section can be parametrized as $\text{d}\sigma/\text{d}\Omega = a + b\cos^{2}\theta^*$, where $\theta^*$ is the production angle of the pion in the center-of-mass coordinate system, and the results for the parameters are $a = \left(1.55 \pm 0.46 (\text{stat}) ^{+0.32}_{-0.8} (\text{syst}) \right) \text{pb/sr}$ and $b = \left(13.1 \pm 2.1 (\text{stat}) ^{+1.0}_{-2.7} (\text{syst})\right) \text{pb/sr}$.

Total and differential cross sections have been obtained covering the energy region $T_p = 0.95 - 1.3$ GeV ($\sqrt s$ = 2.3 - 2.46 GeV), which includes the regions of $\Delta(1232)$, $N^*(1440)$ and $d^*(2380)$ resonance excitations. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2017-07-2711:05 [FZJ-2017-05278] Preprint et al Determination of N* amplitudes from associated strangeness production in p+p collisions We present the first determination of the energy-dependent production amplitudes of N$^{*}$ resonances with masses between 1650 MeV/c$^{2}$ and 1900 MeV/c$^{2}$ for an excess energy between $0$ and $600$ MeV. A combined Partial Wave Analysis of seven exclusively reconstructed data samples for the reaction p+p $\rightarrow pK\Lambda$ measured by the COSY-TOF, DISTO, FOPI and HADES collaborations in fixed target experiments at kinetic energies between 2.14 and 3.5 GeV is used to determine the amplitude of the resonant and non-resonant contributions.. OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2017-07-2710:59 [FZJ-2017-05275] Preprint et al Strange Hadron Spectroscopy with a Secondary KL Beam at GlueX We propose to create a secondary beam of neutral kaons in Hall D at Jefferson Lab to be used with the GlueX experimental setup for strange hadron spectroscopy. A flux on the order of 3 x 10^4 KL/s will allow a broad range of measurements to be made by improving the statistics of previous data obtained on hydrogen targets by three orders of magnitude. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2017-07-2516:47 [FZJ-2017-05176] Preprint et al Ab initio calculations of the isotopic dependence of nuclear clustering Nuclear clustering describes the appearance of structures resembling smaller nuclei such as alpha particles (4He nuclei) within the interior of a larger nucleus. While clustering is important for several well-known examples, little is known about the general nature of clustering in nuclei. [...] OpenAccess: PDF; 2017-07-2516:32 [FZJ-2017-05174] Preprint Zhu, S.-l. Possible hadronic molecules composed of the doubly charmed baryon and nucleon We perform a systematical investigation of the possible deuteron-like bound states with configuration $\Xi_{cc}N (\bar{N})$, where $N(\bar{N})$ denotes the nucleon (anti-nucleon), in the framework of the one-boson-exchange-potential model. In the spin-triplet sector we take into account both the ${}^3S_1$ and ${}^3D_1$ channels due to non-vanishing tensor force. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2017-07-2510:03 [FZJ-2017-05103] Preprint et al A novel FbFP-based biosensor toolbox for sensitive in vivo determination of intracellular pH Journal of biotechnology 258, 25-32 (2017) [10.1016/j.jbiotec.2017.05.006] The intracellular pH is an important modulator of various bio(techno)logical processes such as enzymatic conversion of metabolites or transport across the cell membrane. Changes of intracellular pH due to altered proton distribution can thus cause dysfunction of cellular processes.
