Non-intrusive detection systems have the potential to characterise materials through various transparent glass and plastic containers. Food and drink adulteration is increasingly problematic, representing a serious health risk as well

# Many-body Chern number from statistical correlations of randomized measurements. (arXiv:2005.13543v1 [quant-ph])

One of the main topological invariants that characterizes several topologically-ordered phases is the many-body Chern number (MBCN). Paradigmatic examples include several fractional quantum Hall phases, which are expected to be

# Introduction to Lightcone Conformal Truncation: QFT Dynamics from CFT Data. (arXiv:2005.13544v1 [hep-th])

We both review and augment the lightcone conformal truncation (LCT) method. LCT is a Hamiltonian truncation method for calculating dynamical quantities in QFT in infinite volume. This document is a

# Theory of the fractional quantum Hall effect in Weyl semimetals. (arXiv:2005.13545v1 [cond-mat.str-el])

We develop a hydrodynamic field theory of the three-dimensional fractional quantum Hall effect, which was recently proposed to exist in magnetic Weyl semimetals, when the Weyl nodes are gapped by

# Quantum Geometry and $\theta$-Angle in Five-Dimensional Super Yang-Mills. (arXiv:2005.13565v1 [hep-th])

Five-dimensional $Sp(N)$ supersymmetric Yang-Mills admits a $\mathbb{Z}_2$ version of a theta angle $\theta$. In this note, we derive a double quantization of the Seiberg-Witten geometry of $\mathcal{N}=1$ $Sp(1)$ gauge theory

# A Deep Dive into the Distribution Function: Understanding Phase Space Dynamics with Continuum Vlasov-Maxwell Simulations. (arXiv:2005.13539v1 [physics.plasm-ph])

In collisionless and weakly collisional plasmas, the particle distribution function is a rich tapestry of the underlying physics. However, actually leveraging the particle distribution function to understand the dynamics of

# A Long-lived Sharp Disruption on the Lower Clouds of Venus. (arXiv:2005.13540v1 [astro-ph.EP])

Planetary-scale waves are thought to play a role in powering the yet-unexplained atmospheric superrotation of Venus. Puzzlingly, while Kelvin, Rossby and stationary waves manifest at the upper clouds (65–70 km),

# An arbitrary high-order Spectral Difference method for the induction equation. (arXiv:2005.13563v1 [math.NA])

We study in this paper three variants of the high-order Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method with Runge-Kutta (RK) time integration for the induction equation, analysing their ability to preserve the divergence

# Hydrodynamics of non-integrable systems from relaxation-time approximation. (arXiv:2005.13546v1 [cond-mat.stat-mech])

We develop a general kinetic theory framework to describe the hydrodynamics of strongly interacting, nonequilibrium quantum systems in which integrability is weakly broken, leaving a few residual conserved quantities. This

# Single-qubit rotations in parameterized quantum circuits. (arXiv:2005.13548v1 [quant-ph])

With the advent of hybrid quantum classical algorithms using parameterized quantum circuits the question of how to optimize these algorithms and circuits emerges. In this paper we show that the
