A differential equation with statedependent delay from cell population biology
(20151231)We analyze a differential equation, describing the maturation of a stem cell population, with a statedependent delay, which is implicitly defined via the solution of an ODE. We elaborate smoothness conditions for the model ... 
A model for stem cell population dynamics with regulated maturation delay
(20111231)We develop a structured population model for the maturation process of stem cells in the form of a statedependent delay differential equation. Moreover, results on existence, uniqueness and positivity of solutions as well ... 
A stylized model for the continuous double auction
(20121231)A stylized phenomenological model for the continuous double auction is introduced. This model is equivalent to two uncoupled M/M/1 queues. The conditions for statistical equilibrium (ergodicity) are derived. The results ... 
Abinitio calculations of strain induced relaxed shape armchair graphene nanoribbon
(2019)An odd number of zigzag edges in armchair graphene nanoribbons and their mechanical properties (e.g., Young's modulus, Poisson ratio and shear modulus) have potential interest for bandgap engineering in graphene based ... 
Adapting Hybrid Monte Carlo methods for solving complex problems in life and materials sciences
(20180511)Efficient sampling is the key to success of molecular simulation of complex physical systems. Still, a unique recipe for achieving this goal is unavailable. Hybrid Monte Carlo (HMC) is a promising sampling tool offering a ... 
Adaptive multistage integrators for optimal energy conservation in molecular simulations
(20161001)We introduce a new Adaptive Integration Approach (AIA) to be used in a wide range of molecular simulations. Given a simulation problem and a step size, the method automatically chooses the optimal scheme out of an available ... 
Adaptive Splitting Integrators for Enhancing Sampling Efficiency of Modified Hamiltonian Monte Carlo Methods in Molecular Simulation
(20171024)The modified Hamiltonian Monte Carlo (MHMC) methods, i.e., importance sampling methods that use modified Hamiltonians within a Hybrid Monte Carlo (HMC) framework, often outperform in sampling efficiency standard techniques ... 
Analytical evaluation of the performance of contactBased messaging applications
(20160301)Communications in mobile opportunistic networks, instead of using the Internet infrastructure, take place upon the establishment of ephemeral contacts among mobile nodes using direct communication. In this paper, we ... 
ART: A machine learning Automated Recommendation Tool for synthetic biology
(2019)Biology has changed radically in the last two decades, transitioning from a descriptive science into a design science. Synthetic biology allows us to bioengineer cells to synthesize novel valuable molecules such as renewable ... 
Assessment of van der Waals inclusive density functional theory methods for layered electroactive materials
(20170101)Computationaldriven materials discovery requires efficient and accurate methods. Density functional theory (DFT) meets these two requirements for many classes of materials. However, DFTbased methods have limitations. One ... 
Atomistic Insight into Ion Transport and Conductivity in Ga/AlSubstituted Li$_7$La$_3$Zr$_2$O$_{12}$ Solid Electrolytes
(20180109)Garnetstructured Li$_{7}$La$_{3}$Zr$_{2}$O$_{12}$ is a promising solid electrolyte for nextgeneration solidstate Li batteries. However, sufficiently fast Liion mobility required for battery applications only emerges ...

Breast cancer dormancy can be maintained by small numbers of micrometastases
(20101231)Late relapse of breast cancer can occur more than 25 years after primary diagnosis. During the intervening years between initial treatment and relapse, occult cancers are maintained in an apparent state of dormancy that ... 
Brinicles as a case of inverse chemical gardens
(20131231)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 ... 
Causality, 'superluminality', and reshaping in undersized waveguides
(20121231)We analyse the reshaping mechanism leading to apparently 'superluminal' advancement of a pulse traversing an undersized section of a waveguide. For frequencies below the first inelastic threshold (cut off one), there are ...
