#### Runaway electrification of friable self-replicating granular matter

(2013-12-31)

We establish that the nonlinear dynamics of collisions between particles favors the charging of an insulating, friable, self-replicating granular material that undergoes nucleation, growth, and fission processes; we ...

#### Global dynamics of two-compartment models for cell production systems with regulatory mechanisms

(2013-12-31)

We present a global stability analysis of two-compartment models of a hierarchical cell production system with a nonlinear regulatory feedback loop. The models describe cell differentiation processes with the stem cell ...

#### Coupled magneto-thermo-electromechanical effects and electronic properties of quantum dots

(2013-12-31)

For the first time, we systemically analyze the influence of magneto-thermo-electromechanical effects on the band structure calculations by using the fully coupled model. We focus on three different types of quantum dots ...

#### Computational aspects of Monte-Carlo simulations of the first passage time for multivariate transformed Brownian motions with jumps

(2013-12-31)

Many problems in science, engineering, and finance require the information on the first passage time (FPT) of a stochastic process. Mathematically, such problems are often reduced to the evaluation of the probability density ...

#### Numerical simulation of a susceptible-exposed-infectious space-continuous model for the spread of rabies in raccoons across a realistic landscape

(2013-12-31)

We introduce a numerical model for the spread of a lethal infectious disease in wildlife. The reference model is a Susceptible-Exposed-Infectious system where the spatial component of the dynamics is modelled by a diffusion ...

#### Optimized schwarz methods for the bidomain system in electrocardiology

(2013-12-31)

The propagation of the action potential in the heart chambers is accurately described by the Bidomain model, which is commonly accepted and used in the specialistic literature. However, its mathematical structure of a ...

#### Structuring targeted surveillance for monitoring disease emergence by mapping observational data onto ecological process

(2013-12-31)

An efficient surveillance system is a crucial factor in identifying, monitoring and tackling outbreaks of infectious diseases. Scarcity of data and limited amounts of economic resources require a targeted effort from public ...

#### Brinicles as a case of inverse chemical gardens

(2013-12-31)

Brinicles are hollow tubes of ice from centimeters to meters in length that form under floating sea ice in the polar oceans when dense, cold brine drains downward from sea ice to seawater close to its freezing point. When ...

#### Combining stochastic and deterministic approaches within high efficiency molecular simulations

(2013-12-31)

Generalized Shadow Hybrid Monte Carlo (GSHMC) is a method for molecular simulations that rigorously alternates Monte Carlo sampling from a canonical ensemble with integration of trajectories using Molecular Dynamics (MD). ...

#### Interference mechanism of seemingly superluminal tunneling

(2013-12-31)

Apparently "superluminal" transmission, e.g., in quantum tunneling and its variants, occurs via a subtle interference mechanism which allows reconstruction of the entire spatial shape of a wave packet from its front tail. ...
