    1. The generalized SIC-OEP formalism and the generalized SIC-Slater approximation (stationary and time-dependent cases) (pages 270–290)

      J. Messud, P.M. Dinh, P.-G. Reinhard and E. Suraud

      Article first published online: 11 FEB 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201100002

      A generalized formulation of the Optimized Effective Potential (OEP) approach to the Self Interaction Correction (SIC) problem in Time Dependent (TD) Density Functional Theory (DFT) is presented. Both formal aspects and practical applications of the new formalism are discussed and illustrations are given in cluster and molecules.

    2. Cosmological constant from quarks and torsion (pages 291–295)

      N.J. Popławski

      Article first published online: 1 FEB 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201000162

      A simple and natural way to derive the observed small, positive cosmological constant from the gravitational interaction of condensing fermions is presented. In the Riemann-Cartan spacetime, torsion gives rise to the axial-axial vector four-fermion interaction term in the Dirac Lagrangian for spinor fields.

    3. Canonical formulation of spin in general relativity (pages 296–353)

      J. Steinhoff

      Article first published online: 16 FEB 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/andp.201000178

      The present article aims at an extension of the canonical formalism of Arnowitt, Deser, and Misner from self-gravitating point-masses to objects with spin. This would allow interesting applications, e.g., within the post-Newtonian (PN) approximation. All spin-dependent Hamiltonians for rapidly rotating bodies up to and including 3PN are calculated.
