Shoaling of nonlinear steady waves: maximum height and angle of breaking
(20151231)A Fourier approximation method is used for modeling and simu lation of fully nonlinear steady waves. The set of resulting nonlinear equations are solved by Newton’s method. The shoaling of waves is simulated based on ... 
Spectral properties of hyperbolic nanonetworks with tunable aggregation of simplexes
(2019)Cooperative selfassembly is a ubiquitous phenomenon found in natural systems which is used for designing nanostructured materials with new functional features. Its origin and mechanisms, leading to improved functionality ... 
Spinorbit interaction in threedimensionally bounded semiconductor nanostructures
(20101231)The structural inversion asymmetryinduced spinorbit interaction of conduction band electrons in zincblende and wurtzite semiconductor structures is analysed allowing for a threedimensional (3D) character of the external ... 
Stability analysis of a renewal equation for cell population dynamics with quiescence
(20141231)We propose a model to analyze the dynamics of interacting proliferating and quiescent cell populations. The model includes age dependence of cell division, transitions between the two subpopulations, and regulation of the ... 
Stability analysis of delayed SIR epidemic models with a class of nonlinear incidence rates
(20121231)We analyze stability of equilibria for a delayed SIR epidemic model, in which population growth is subject to logistic growth in absence of disease, with a nonlinear incidence rate satisfying suitable monotonicity conditions. ... 
Stability analysis of multicompartment models for cell production systems
(20121231)We study twoand threecompartment models of a hierarchical cell production system with cell division regulated by the level of mature cells. We investigate the structure of equilibria with respect to parameters as well ... 
Stress induced polarization switching and coupled hysteretic dynamics in ferroelectric materials
(20111231)The dynamic responses of ferroelectric materials upon external mechanical and electrical stimulations are inherently nonlinear and coupled. In the current paper, a macroscopic differential model is constructed for the ... 
'Superluminal paradox' in wave packet propagation and its quantum mechanical resolution
(20131231)We analyse in detail the reshaping mechanism leading to apparently 'superluminal' advancement of a wave packet traversing a classically forbidden region. In the coordinate representation, a barrier is shown to act as an ... 
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 ... 
The airfoil equation on near disjoint intervals: Approximate models and polynomial solutions
(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
(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 ... 
Thermal ablation of biological tissues in disease treatment: A review of computational models and future directions
(202003)Percutaneous thermal ablation has proved to be an effective modality for treating both benign and malignant tumors in various tissues. Among these modalities, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is the most promising and widely ... 
Three Dimensional Metallic Carbon from Distorting sp3Bond
(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 ... 
A Tool for Custom Construction of QMC and RQMC Point Sets
(2021)We present LatNet Builder, a software tool to find good parameters for lattice rules, polynomial lattice rules, and digital nets in base 2, for quasiMonte Carlo (QMC) and randomized quasiMonte Carlo (RQMC) sampling over ...

Tunnelling times, Larmor clock, and the elephant in the room
(20210511)A controversy surrounding the “tunnelling time problem” stems from the seeming inability of quantum mechanics to provide, in the usual way, a definition of the duration a particle is supposed to spend in a given region of ...
