Partial regularity and smooth topologypreserving approximations of rough domains
(Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations, 20170101)For a bounded domain $\Omega\subset\mathbb{R}^m, m\geq 2,$ of class $C^0$, the properties are studied of fields of `good directions', that is the directions with respect to which $\partial\Omega$ can be locally represented ... 
Liquid crystal defects in the Landau–de Gennes theory in two dimensions — Beyond the oneconstant approximation
(Mathematical Models and Methods in Applied Sciences, 20161231)We consider the twodimensional Landaude Gennes energy with several elastic constants, subject to general $k$radially symmetric boundary conditions. We show that for generic elastic constants the critical points consistent ... 
Enhancing sampling in atomistic simulations of solid state materials for batteries: a focus on olivine NaFePO4
(arXiv.org, 20161225)The study of ion transport in electrochemically active materials for energy storage systems requires simulations on quantum atomistic and mesoscales. The methods accessing these scales not only have to be effective but ... 
Multiobjective Optimization of Orbit Transfer Trajectory Using Imperialist Competitive Algorithm
(IEEE Aerospace Conference, 20170304)This paper proposes a systematic direct approach to carry out effective multiobjective optimization of space orbit transfer with highlevel thrust acceleration. The objective is to provide a transfer trajectory with ... 
Homogeneous singularity and the Alexander polynomial of a projective plane curve
(20171210)The Alexander polynomial of a plane curve is an important invariant in global theories on curves. However, it seems that this invariant and even a much stronger one the fundamental group of the complement of a plane curve ...
