Synthesis of Monodisperse Spherical Nanocrystals
(20160129)Nanoparticles, small units of matter with dimensions in the range 1100 nm, exhibit many advantageous sizedependent magnetic, electrical, chemical and optical prop erties, which are not observed at the microscale or ... 
On the Analysis of TrajectoryBased Search Algorithms: When is it Beneficial to Reject Improvements?
(Algorithmica, 2018)We investigate popular trajectorybased algorithms inspired by biology and physics to answer a question of general significance: when is it beneficial to reject improvements? A distinguishing factor of SSWM (Strong Selection ... 
Probabilistic Modelling of Classical and Quantum Systems
(20180614)While probabilistic modelling has been widely used in the last decades, the quantitative prediction in stochastic modelling of real physical problems remains a great challenge and requires sophisticated mathematical models ... 
An RBFFD closest point method for solving PDEs on surfaces
(Journal of Computational Physics, 2018)Partial differential equations (PDEs) on surfaces appear in many applications throughout the natural and applied sciences. The classical closest point method (Ruuth and Merriman, J. Comput. Phys. 227(3):19431961, ... 
Adapting Hybrid Monte Carlo methods for solving complex problems in life and materials sciences
(20180511)Efficient sampling is the key to success of molecular simulation of complex physical systems. Still, a unique recipe for achieving this goal is unavailable. Hybrid Monte Carlo (HMC) is a promising sampling tool offering a ... 
A Machine Learning Approach to Predict Metabolic Pathway Dynamics from Time Series Multiomics Data
(npj Systems Biology and Applications, 201805)New synthetic biology capabilities hold the promise of dramatically improving our ability to engineer biological systems. However, a fundamental hurdle in realizing this potential is our inability to accurately predict ... 
Revealing the Mechanism of Sodium Diffusion in NaxFePO4 Using an Improved Force Field
(Journal of Physical Chemistry C, 20180402)Olivine NaFePO4 is a promising cathode material for Naion batteries. Intermediate phases such as Na0.66FePO4 govern phase stability during intercalationdeintercalation processes, yet little is known about Na+ diffusion ... 
Modelling of Thermal Sterilization of highmoisture snack foods: feasibility analysis and optimization
(Food and Bioprocess Technology, 201801)Highmoisture snacks, such as steamed buns and rice cakes, are traditional and popular in Asian countries. However, their shelf life is short, primarily due to microbial spoilage. Current manufacturing methods address this ... 
Unlocking datasets by calibrating populations of models to data density: a study in atrial electrophysiology
(Science Advances, 20180110)The understanding of complex physical or biological systems nearly always requires a characterization of the variability that underpins these processes. In addition, the data used to calibrate these models may also often ... 
An even simpler understanding of quantum weak values
(Annals of Physics, 201801)We explain the properties and clarify the meaning of quantum weak values using only the basic notions of elementary quantum mechanics. 
A spacefractional Monodomain model for cardiac electrophysiology combining anisotropy and heterogeneity on realistic geometries
(20171004)Classical models of electrophysiology do not typically account for the effects of high structural heterogeneity in the spatiotemporal description of excitation waves propagation. We consider a modification of the Monodomain ... 
The Experiment Data Depot: A WebBased Software Tool for Biological Experimental Data Storage, Sharing, and Visualization
(ACS Synthetic Biology, 20170930)Although recent advances in synthetic biology allow us to produce biological designs more efficiently than ever, our ability to predict the end result of these designs is still nascent. Predictive models require large ...
