See the title of the paper here, <https://arxiv.org/pdf/2102.05686.pdf>:

Quantum-critical dynamics of a Josephson junction at the topological transition.

Is the preposition phrase "at the topological transition" used above to modify "Quantum-critical dynamics" or "a Josephson junction"?

Regards,
HY

Neither. It specifies the state of the junction,

Neither. It specifies the state of the junction,
Do you mean it is used as a complement?

It appears to mean "at the time of the transition"
If this is impossible, it might mean "at the place of the transition"

No. The topological transition is a kind of phase transition.
"at the topological transition" here indicates
that external conditions are such that the Josephson junction
is very close to it. (so interesting dynamics can be expected)

It is important to understand that the title of a paper is almost never
a complete sentence. It is trying to say something in a small number of
words, like a newspaper headline. To see precisely what the author
means, you have to read the paper.

Fir years, psychologists have been using complete sentences as titles.
They look very idd,

Look at the QWERTY keyboard. The letters are adjacent, and both errors
happen to be real words, so the squiggler didn't notice them.

Interesting that it only happened in short words.
