In this paper, an energy-consistent finite difference scheme for the compressible hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations is introduced. For the compressible magnetohydrodynamics, an energy-consistent finite difference formulation is derived using

# Nested sampling with any prior you like. (arXiv:2102.12478v1 [astro-ph.IM])

Nested sampling is an important tool for conducting Bayesian analysis in Astronomy and other fields, both for sampling complicated posterior distributions for parameter inference, and for computing marginal likelihoods for

# Decoding Photons: Physics in the Latent Space of a BIB-AE Generative Network. (arXiv:2102.12491v1 [physics.ins-det])

Given the increasing data collection capabilities and limited computing resources of future collider experiments, interest in using generative neural networks for the fast simulation of collider events is growing. In

# The dynamics of three nearby E0 galaxies in refracted gravity. (arXiv:2102.12499v1 [astro-ph.GA])

We test whether refracted gravity (RG), a modified theory of gravity that describes the dynamics of galaxies without the aid of dark matter, can model the dynamics of the three

# General dispersion properties of magnetized plasmas with drifting bi-Kappa distributions. DIS-K: DIspersion Solver for Kappa plasmas. (arXiv:2102.12513v1 [physics.plasm-ph])

Space plasma populations are known to be out of (local) thermodynamic equilibrium, as observations show direct or indirect evidences of non-thermal velocity distributions of plasma particles. Prominent are the anisotropies

# Impact of locus coeruleus and its projections on memory and aging. (arXiv:2102.12522v1 [physics.med-ph])

Introduction: Locus coeruleus (LC) is the primary source of norepinephrine to the brain and its efferent projections innervate many brain regions, including the thalamus. LC degrades with normal aging, but

# Experimental and numerical evidence of intensified non-linearity at the micro and nano scale: The lipid coated acoustic bubble. (arXiv:2102.12532v1 [physics.flu-dyn])

A lipid coated bubble (LCB) oscillator is a very interesting non-smooth oscillator with many important applications ranging from industry and chemistry to medicine. However, due to the complex behavior of

# High-fidelity laser-free universal control of two trapped ion qubits. (arXiv:2102.12533v1 [quant-ph])

Universal control of multiple qubits — the ability to entangle qubits and to perform arbitrary individual qubit operations — is a fundamental resource for quantum computation, simulation, and networking. Here,

# Confined Hyperbolic Nanoridge Modes for Structured Illumination Microscopy. (arXiv:2102.12536v1 [physics.optics])

Plasmonic hyperbolic metasurfaces have emerged as an effective platform for manipulating the propagation of light. In this work, we leverage confined modes on arrays of silver nanoridges, which exhibit a

# Atmospheric ray tomography for low-Z materials: implementing new methods on a proof-of-concept tomograph. (arXiv:2102.12542v1 [physics.ins-det])

Cosmic rays interacting with the atmosphere result in the flux of secondary particles including muons and electrons. Atmospheric ray tomography (ART) uses the muons and electrons for detecting objects and
