Authors [57], following Kurobe and Kamimura [44], considered only intrasite correlations and neglect the long range Coulomb repulsion. On the basis of [57] it is possible to determine which type of conductivity under the external magnetic field dominates: spin dependent or spin independent.
Notice the different signs which reflects the Coulomb repulsion between otherwise degenerate levels:
Figure 6(c) shows the LDOS corresponding to the (8, 0)/(14, 0) single junction including the Coulomb repulsion.
They are more separated in energy when the Coulomb repulsion is taken into account.
These factors enhance complex interactions to the nanofluid, for example, Van Der Waals combination force, electrostatic Coulomb repulsion force both were discussed in colloidal science DLVO (Derjaguin, Landau, Verwey, and Overbeek) theorem [17-19].
The two terms in (1) represent respectively the Coulomb repulsion between the electron charge and the separate PV charges, and their mutual gravitational attraction.
At ordinary temperatures the probability of the reaction is practically zero, due to the well known coulomb repulsion of positive nuclei.
