Assessment of van der Waals inclusive density functional theory methods for layered electroactive materials
(Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, 20170101)Computationaldriven materials discovery requires efficient and accurate methods. Density functional theory (DFT) meets these two requirements for many classes of materials. However, DFTbased methods have limitations. One ... 
Gaussian quadrature rules for $C^1$ quintic splines with uniform knot vectors
(Journal of Computational and Applied Mathematics, 20170322)We provide explicit quadrature rules for spaces of $C^1$ quintic splines with uniform knot sequences over finite domains. The quadrature nodes and weights are derived via an explicit recursion that avoids numerical solvers. ... 
Singularity formation for the 1D cubic NLS and the Schrödinger map on $\mathbb{S}^2$
(20170202)In this note we consider the 1D cubic Schrödinger equation with data given as small perturbations of a Dirac$\delta$ function and some other related equations. We first recall that although the problem for this type of ... 
Towards optimal advection using stretchmaximizing stream surfaces
(Computer Aided Geometric Design, 20170301)We investigate a class of stream surfaces that expand in time as much as possible. Given a vector field, we look for seed curves that locally propagate in time in a stretchmaximizing manner, i.e., curves that infinitesimally ... 
Effect of trampling and digging from shell shing on Zostera noltei (Zosteraceae) intertidal seagrass beds
(Scientia Marina, 201703)Seagrass beds are among the most valuable ecosystems in the world but they are also among the ones most affected by human activities, and they have decreased significantly in recent decades. In many areas, such as in the ...
