No Time at the End of the Tunnel
(Communications Physics – Nature, 20180821)Modern attosecond experiments seek to provide an insight into a long standing question: “how much time does a tunnelling particle spend in the barrier?” Traditionally, quantum theory relates this duration to the delay ... 
NonMarkovian models of the growth of a polymer chain
(Proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences, 20151231)Using simple exactly solvable models, we show that eventdependent time delays may lead to significant nonPoisson effects in the statistics of polymer chain growth. The results are confirmed by stochastic simulation of ... 
Nonlinear dynamics of shape memory alloy oscillators in tuning structural vibration frequencies

Numerical simulation of extreme wave runup during storm events in Tramandaí Beach, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
(Coastal Engineering, 20151231)We present a high resolution analysis of the interaction of irregular waves with natural and urban structures leading to extreme wave runup. Horizontal runup data, instantaneous flooding maps, and wave propagation beyond ... 
On a generalization of the global attractivity for a periodically forced Pielou's equation
(Journal of Difference Equations and Applications, 20121231)In this paper, we study the global attractivity for a class of periodic difference equation with delay which has a generalized form of Pielou's difference equation. The global dynamics of the equation is characterized by ... 
On the Analysis of TrajectoryBased Search Algorithms: When is it Beneficial to Reject Improvements?
