(i) Let $G$ be a directed network with nodes $N$ and $\operatorname{arcs} A$. Let $S \subset N$ be a subset of the nodes, $x$ be a flow on $G$, and $y$ be the divergence of $x$. Describe carefully what is meant by a cut $Q=[S, N \backslash S]$. Define the arc-cut incidence $e_{Q}$, and the flux of $x$ across $Q$. Define also the divergence $y(S)$ of $S$. Show that $y(S)=x \cdot e_{Q}$.

Now suppose that capacity constraints are specified on each of the arcs. Define the upper cut capacity $c^{+}(Q)$ of $Q$. State the feasible distribution problem for a specified divergence $b$, and show that the problem only has a solution if $b(N)=0$ and $b(S) \leqslant c^{+}(Q)$ for all cuts $Q=[S, N \backslash S]$.

(ii) Describe an algorithm to find a feasible distribution given a specified divergence $b$ and capacity constraints on each arc. Explain what happens when no feasible distribution exists.

Write down the commutation relations satisfied by the cartesian components of the total angular momentum operator $\mathbf{J}$.

In quantum mechanics an operator $\mathbf{V}$ is said to be a vector operator if, under rotations, its components transform in the same way as those of the coordinate operator r. Show from first principles that this implies that its cartesian components satisfy the commutation relations

$\left[J_{j}, V_{k}\right]=i \epsilon_{j k l} V_{l}$

Hence calculate the total angular momentum of the nonvanishing states $V_{j}|0\rangle$, where $|0\rangle$ is the vacuum state.

Derive the Bloch form of the wave function $\psi(x)$ of an electron moving in a onedimensional crystal lattice.

The potential in such an $N$-atom lattice is modelled by

$V(x)=\sum_{n}\left(-\frac{\hbar^{2} U}{2 m} \delta(x-n L)\right)$

Assuming that $\psi(x)$ is continuous across each lattice site, and applying periodic boundary conditions, derive an equation for the allowed electron energy levels. Show that for suitable values of $U L$ they have a band structure, and calculate the number of levels in each band when $U L>2$. Verify that when $U L \gg 1$ the levels are very close to those corresponding to a solitary atom.

State the Hartman-Grobman Theorem for flow near a hyperbolic fixed point. For nonlinear flows in $R^{2}$ with a hyperbolic fixed point $x_{0}$, does the theorem necessarily allow us to distinguish, on the basis of the linearized flow near $x_{0}$ between (a) a stable focus and a stable node; and (b) a saddle and a stable node? Justify your answers briefly.

has a fixed point $\left(x_{0}, 0\right)$ on the $x$-axis. Show that there is a bifurcation at $\mu=0$ and determine the stability of the fixed point for $\mu>0$ and for $\mu<0$.

Make a linear change of variables of the form $u=x-x_{0}+\alpha y, v=x-x_{0}+\beta y$, where $\alpha$ and $\beta$ are constants to be determined, to bring the system into the form:

In a superconductor, there are superconducting charge carriers with number density $n$, mass $m$ and charge $q$. Starting from the quantum mechanical wavefunction $\Psi=R e^{i \Phi}$ (with real $R$ and $\Phi$ ), construct a formula for the electric current and explain carefully why your result is gauge invariant.

Now show that inside a superconductor a static magnetic field obeys the equation

$\nabla^{2} \mathbf{B}=\frac{\mu_{0} n q^{2}}{m} \mathbf{B}$

A superconductor occupies the region $z>0$, while for $z<0$ there is a vacuum with a constant magnetic field in the $x$ direction. Show that the magnetic field cannot penetrate deep into the superconductor.

The Liénard-Wiechert potential for a particle of charge $q$, assumed to be moving non-relativistically along the trajectory $y^{\mu}(\tau), \tau$ being the proper time along the trajectory,

$A^{\mu}(x, t)=\left.\frac{\mu_{0} q}{4 \pi} \frac{d y^{\mu} / d \tau}{(x-y(\tau))_{\nu} d y^{\nu} / d \tau}\right|_{\tau=\tau_{0}} .$

Explain how to calculate $\tau_{0}$ given $x^{\mu}=(x, t)$ and $y^{\mu}=\left(y, t^{\prime}\right)$.

Derive Larmor's formula for the rate at which electromagnetic energy is radiated from a particle of charge $q$ undergoing an acceleration $a$.

Suppose that one considers the classical non-relativistic hydrogen atom with an electron of mass $m$ and charge $-e$ orbiting a fixed proton of charge $+e$, in a circular orbit of radius $r_{0}$. What is the total energy of the electron? As the electron is accelerated towards the proton it will radiate, thereby losing energy and causing the orbit to decay. Derive a formula for the lifetime of the orbit.

(i) Write down the two Maxwell equations that govern steady magnetic fields. Show that the boundary conditions satisfied by the magnetic field on either side of a current sheet, $\mathbf{J}$, with unit normal to the sheet $\mathbf{n}$, are

$\mathbf{n} \wedge \mathbf{B}_{2}-\mathbf{n} \wedge \mathbf{B}_{1}=\mu_{0} \mathbf{J}$

(ii) Conducting gas occupies the infinite slab $0 \leqslant x \leqslant a$. It carries a steady current $\mathbf{j}=(0,0, j)$ and a magnetic field $\mathbf{B}=(0, B, 0)$ where $\mathbf{j}$, $\mathbf{B}$ depend only on $x$. The pressure is $p(x)$. The equation of hydrostatic equilibrium is $\nabla p=\mathbf{j} \wedge \mathbf{B}$. Write down the equations to be solved in this case. Show that $p+\left(1 / 2 \mu_{0}\right) B^{2}$ is independent of $x$.

(i) Write down the expression for the electrostatic potential $\phi(\mathbf{r})$ due to a distribution of charge $\rho(\mathbf{r})$ contained in a volume $V$. Perform the multipole expansion of $\phi(\mathbf{r})$ taken only as far as the dipole term.

(ii) If the volume $V$ is the sphere $|\mathbf{r}| \leqslant a$ and the charge distribution is given by

$\rho(\mathbf{r})= \begin{cases}r^{2} \cos \theta & r \leqslant a \\ 0 & r>a\end{cases}$

where $r, \theta$ are spherical polar coordinates, calculate the charge and dipole moment. Hence deduce $\phi$ as far as the dipole term.

Obtain an exact solution for $r>a$ by solving the boundary value problem using trial solutions of the forms

$\phi=\frac{A \cos \theta}{r^{2}} \text { for } r>a,$

and

$\phi=B r \cos \theta+C r^{4} \cos \theta \text { for } r

Show that the solution obtained from the multipole expansion is in fact exact for $r>a$.

(i) Develop the theory of electromagnetic waves starting from Maxwell equations in vacuum. You should relate the wave-speed $c$ to $\epsilon_{0}$ and $\mu_{0}$ and establish the existence of plane, plane-polarized waves in which $\mathbf{E}$ takes the form

$\mathbf{E}=\left(E_{0} \cos (k z-\omega t), 0,0\right) .$

You should give the form of the magnetic field $\mathbf{B}$ in this case.

(ii) Starting from Maxwell's equation, establish Poynting's theorem.

$-\mathbf{j} \cdot \mathbf{E}=\frac{\partial W}{\partial t}+\nabla \cdot \mathbf{S},$

where $W=\frac{\epsilon_{0}}{2} \mathbf{E}^{2}+\frac{1}{2 \mu_{0}} \mathbf{B}^{2}$ and $\mathbf{S}=\frac{1}{\mu_{0}} \mathbf{E} \wedge \mathbf{B}$. Give physical interpretations of $W, S$ and the theorem.

Compute the averages over space and time of $W$ and $\mathbf{S}$ for the plane wave described in (i) and relate them. Comment on the result.

Write down the form of Ohm's Law that applies to a conductor if at a point $\mathbf{r}$ it is moving with velocity $\mathbf{v}(\mathbf{r})$.

Use two of Maxwell's equations to prove that

$\int_{C}(\mathbf{E}+\mathbf{v} \wedge \mathbf{B}) \cdot d \mathbf{r}=-\frac{d}{d t} \int_{S} \mathbf{B} \cdot d \mathbf{S}$

where $C(t)$ is a moving closed loop, $\mathbf{v}$ is the velocity at the point $\mathbf{r}$ on $C$, and $S$ is a surface spanning $C$. The time derivative on the right hand side accounts for changes in both $C$ and B. Explain briefly the physical importance of this result.

Find and sketch the magnetic field $\mathbf{B}$ described in the vector potential

$\mathbf{A}(r, \theta, z)=\left(0, \frac{1}{2} b r z, 0\right)$

A conducting circular loop of radius $a$ and resistance $R$ lies in the plane $z=h(t)$ with its centre on the $z$-axis.

Find the magnitude and direction of the current induced in the loop as $h(t)$ changes with time, neglecting self-inductance.

At time $t=0$ the loop is at rest at $z=0$. For time $t>0$ the loop moves with constant velocity $d h / d t=v>0$. Ignoring the inertia of the loop, use energy considerations to find the force $F(t)$ necessary to maintain this motion.

The energy equation for the motion of a viscous, incompressible fluid states that

$\frac{d}{d t} \int_{V(t)} \frac{1}{2} \rho u^{2} d V=\int_{S(t)} u_{i} \sigma_{i j} n_{j} d S-2 \mu \int_{V(t)} e_{i j} e_{i j} d V$

Interpret each term in this equation and explain the meaning of the symbols used.

For steady rectilinear flow in a (not necessarily circular) pipe having rigid stationary walls, deduce a relation between the viscous dissipation per unit length of the pipe, the pressure gradient $G$, and the volume flux $Q$.

Starting from the Navier-Stokes equations, calculate the velocity field for steady rectilinear flow in a circular pipe of radius $a$. Using the relationship derived above, or otherwise, find in terms of $G$ the viscous dissipation per unit length for this flow.

Explain what is meant by a Stokes flow and show that, in such a flow, in the absence of body forces, $\partial \sigma_{i j} / \partial x_{j}=0$, where $\sigma_{i j}$ is the stress tensor.

State and prove the reciprocal theorem for Stokes flow.

When a rigid sphere of radius $a$ translates with velocity $\mathbf{U}$ through unbounded fluid at rest at infinity, it may be shown that the traction per unit area, $\boldsymbol{\sigma} \cdot \mathbf{n}$, exerted by the sphere on the fluid, has the uniform value $3 \mu \mathbf{U} / 2 a$ over the sphere surface. Find the drag on the sphere.

Suppose that the same sphere is free of external forces and is placed with its centre at the origin in an unbounded Stokes flow given in the absence of the sphere as $\mathbf{u}_{s}(\mathbf{x})$. By applying the reciprocal theorem to the perturbation to the flow generated by the presence of the sphere, and assuming this to tend to zero sufficiently rapidly at infinity, show that the instantaneous velocity of the centre of the sphere is

$\mathbf{V}=\frac{1}{4 \pi a^{2}} \int_{r=a} \mathbf{u}_{s}(\mathbf{x}) d S$

A planar flow of an inviscid, incompressible fluid is everywhere in the $x$-direction and has velocity profile

$u=\left\{\begin{array}{cc} U & y>0, \\ 0 & y<0 . \end{array}\right.$

By examining linear perturbations to the vortex sheet at $y=0$ that have the form $e^{i k x-i \omega t}$, show that

$\omega=\frac{1}{2} k U(1 \pm i)$

and deduce the temporal stability of the sheet to disturbances of wave number $k$.

Use this result to determine also the spatial growth rate and propagation speed of disturbances of frequency $\omega$ introduced at a fixed spatial position.

Starting from the steady planar vorticity equation

outline briefly the derivation of the boundary layer equation

$u u_{x}+v u_{y}=U d U / d x+\nu u_{y y},$

explaining the significance of the symbols used.

Viscous fluid occupies the region $y>0$ with rigid stationary walls along $y=0$ for $x>0$ and $x<0$. There is a line sink at the origin of strength $\pi Q, Q>0$, with $Q / \nu \gg 1$. Assuming that vorticity is confined to boundary layers along the rigid walls:

(a) Find the flow outside the boundary layers.

(b) Explain why the boundary layer thickness $\delta$ along the wall $x>0$ is proportional to $x$, and deduce that

$\delta=\left(\frac{\nu}{Q}\right)^{\frac{1}{2}} x$

(c) Show that the boundary layer equation admits a solution having stream function

$\psi=(\nu Q)^{1 / 2} f(\eta) \quad \text { with } \quad \eta=y / \delta$

Find the equation and boundary conditions satisfied by $f$.

$f^{\prime}=\frac{6}{1+\cosh (\eta \sqrt{2}+c)}-1$

provided that $c$ has one of two values to be determined. Should the positive or negative value be chosen?
