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 ... 
The topology of higherorder complexes associated with brain hubs in human connectomes
(20201201)Higherorder connectivity in complex systems described by simplexes of different orders provides a geometry for simplexbased dynamical variables and interactions. Simplicial complexes that constitute a functional geometry ... 
Traveling waves for models of phase transitions of solids driven by configurational forces
(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
(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 ... 
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 ... 
Two types of condition for the global stability of delayed sis epidemic models with nonlinear birth rate and disease induced death rate
(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 ... 
Unveiling Interfacial LiIon Dynamics in Li7La3Zr2O12/PEO(LiTFSI) Composite PolymerCeramic Solid Electrolytes for AllSolidState Lithium Batteries
(20210623)Unlocking the full potential of solidstate electrolytes (SSEs) is key to enabling safer and moreenergy dense technologies than today’s Liion batteries. In particular, composite materials comprising a conductive, flexible ... 
Valleydependent Lorentz force and AharonovBohm phase in strained graphene pn junction
(2019)Veselago lens focusing in graphene pn junction is promising for realizations of new generation electron optics devices. However, the effect of the straininduced AharonovBohm interference in a pn junction has not been ... 
Variance Reduction with ArrayRQMC for TauLeaping Simulation of Stochastic Biological and Chemical Reaction Networks
(2021)We explore the use of ArrayRQMC, a randomized quasiMonte Carlo method designed for the simulation of Markov chains, to reduce the variance when simulating stochastic biological or chemical reaction networks with ... 
Wealth distribution and the Lorenz curve: a finitary approach
(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 ... 
Wigner's friends, tunnelling times and Feynman's "only mystery of quantum mechanics"
(20220113)Recent developments in elementary quantum mechanics have seen a number of extraordinary claims regarding quantum behaviour, and even questioning internal consistency of the theory. These are, we argue, different disguises ...
