Toy models for wrapping effects
, 806
"... The anomalous dimensions of local single trace gauge invariant operators in N = 4 supersymmetric YangMills theory can be computed by diagonalizing a long range integrable Hamiltonian by means of a perturbative asymptotic Bethe ansatz. This formalism breaks down when the number of fields of the comp ..."

of the composite operator is smaller than the range of the Hamiltonian which coincides with the order in perturbation theory at study. We analyze two spin chain toy models which might shed some light on the physics behind these wrapping effects. One of them, the Hubbard model, is known to be closely related to N
Toy models for macroevolutionary patterns and trends
"... A B S T R A C T Many models have been used to simplify and operationalize the subtle but complex mechanisms of biological evolution. Toy models are gross simplifications that nevertheless attempt to retain major essential features of evolution, bridging the gap between empirical reality and formal ..."

A number of writers have been attracted to the idea that some of the puzzling features of quantum mechanics might be manifestations of ‘reverse ’ or ‘retro ’ causality, at a level underlying that of the usual quantum description. The main motivation for this view stems from EPR/Bell phenomena, where it offers two virtues. First, as was noted by its earliest proponent, 1 it has the potential to provide a timelike decomposition of the nonlocal correlations revealed in EPR cases – i.e., as we would now put it, 2 for the violation of the Bell inequalities in the quantum world. Second, Bell’s derivation of his famous inequality depends explicitly on the assumption that hidden states do not depend on future measurement settings – so that its violation simply invites a retrocausal explanation, at least from the point of view of anyone who has already been bitten by the retrocausal bug. Most people working in the foundations of quantum mechanics remain resolutely unbitten, however. It is common for the retrocausal option to be ignored altogether, or, as in this rather careful recent survey article, relegated to the footnotes with other unmemorabilia: To be scrupulous,
A toy model of the brain
, 2004
"... We have designed a toy brain and have written computer code that simulates it. This toy brain is flexible, modular, has hierarchical learning and recognition, has short and long term memory, is distributed (i.e. has no central control), is asynchronous, and includes parallel and series processing. W ..."

Weighted Supermembrane Toy Model
, 904
"... A weighted Hilbert space approach to the study of zeroenergy states of supersymmetric matrix models is introduced. Applied to a related but technically simpler model, it is shown that the spectrum of the corresponding weighted Hamiltonian simplifies to become purely discrete for sufficient weights. ..."

Toy model for molecular motors
 Physica A
, 1999
"... A hopping model for molecular motors is presented consisting of a state with asymmetric hopping rates with period 2 and a state with uniform hopping rates. State changes lead to a stationary unidirectional current of a particle. The current is explicitly calculated as a function of the rate of state ..."

Analogue spacetimes: Toy models for . . .
