Abstract: It is commonly accepted today, that one-dimenisonal lattice models can belong to three universality classes with respect to the bulk heat conduction. The first class (e.g. lattices with linear interactions) is characterized by heat flux that is proportional to temperature difference
Title: Where feedback fails: clues from the dynamics of massive galaxies Abstract: It is widely understood that galaxies use, throughout the Hubble time, only a small fraction of the baryons associated to their dark matter halos to form stars. Such low baryon-to-stars conversion efficiencies are expected in galaxy formation scenarios where stellar/AGN feedback play a key role in regulating star formation in galaxies, respectively at the low- and high-mass end.
