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 ... 
Temporal excitation patterns on the cerebral cortex as a result of migraine modeling
(Springer Proceedings in Physics, 20160629)The complex, highly individual, geometry of the cerebral cortex in humans presents a major challenge in studying the spreading of spontaneous neuronal activity. Recent computational advances [1] allow to simulate the ... 
The airfoil equation on near disjoint intervals: Approximate models and polynomial solutions
(Journal of Computational and Applied Mathematics, 20160101)The airfoil equation is considered over two disjoint intervals. Assuming the distance between the intervals is small an approximate solution is found and relationships between this approximation and the solution of the ... 
Theoretical Study of the Dissociative Adsorption of Methane on Ir(111): The Role of Steps and Surface Distortions at High Temperatures
(Journal of Physical Chemistry C, 20160101)In this work we revisit the dissociative adsorption of methane on Ir(111) through density functional theory calculations. We focus on the role of surface defects entailing undercoordinated Ir atoms (e.g., steps), and ... 
Three Dimensional Metallic Carbon from Distorting sp3Bond
(Crystal Growth and Design, 20160101)Owing to the outstanding properties of metallic carbon as well as their great potential applications, design and synthesis of metallic carbon have long attracted considerable attention. In this work, a new threedimensional ... 
Tissue drives lesion: computational evidence of interspecies variability in cardiac radiofrequency ablation
(HE 10TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON FUNCTIONAL IMAGING AND MODELING OF THE HEART, 2019)Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is widely used for the treatment of various types of cardiac arrhythmias. Typically, the efficacy and the safety of the ablation protocols used in the clinics are derived from tests ... 
Transitions between bursting modes in the integrated oscillator model for pancreatic βcells
(Journal of Theoretical Biology, 20180620)Insulinsecreting $\beta$cells of pancreatic islets of Langerhans produce bursts of electrical impulses, resulting in intracellular Ca$^{2+}$ oscillations and pulsatile insulin secretion. The mechanism for this bursting ... 
Traveling waves for models of phase transitions of solids driven by configurational forces
(Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems  Series B, 20111231)This article is concerned with the existence of traveling wave solutions, including standing waves, to some models based on configurational forces, describing respectively the diffusionless phase transitions of solid ... 
Tuning $g$factor of electrons through spinorbit coupling in GaAs/AlGaAs conical quantum dots
(International Journal of Modern Physics B, 20160101)We investigate band structures of (Formula presented.) threedimensional conical quantum dots (QDs). In particular, we explore the influence of the Rashba and Dresselhaus spinâ€“orbit couplings in the variation of effective ... 
Two types of condition for the global stability of delayed sis epidemic models with nonlinear birth rate and disease induced death rate
(International Journal of Biomathematics, 20121231)We study global asymptotic stability for an SIS epidemic model with maturation delay proposed by K. Cooke, P. van den Driessche and X. Zou, Interaction of maturation delay and nonlinear birth in population and epidemic ... 
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 ... 
Wealth distribution and the Lorenz curve: a finitary approach
(Journal of Economic Interaction and Coordination, 20151231)We use three stochastic games for the wealth of economic agents which may be at work in a real economy and we derive their statistical equilibrium distributions. Based on a heuristic argument, we assume that the expected ...
