Numerical Regge pole analysis of resonance structures in statetostate reactive differential cross sections
(20220419)This is the third (and the last) code in a collection of three programs [Sokolovski et al. (2011), Akhmatskaya et al. (2014)] dedicated to the analysis of numerical data, obtained in an accurate simulation of an atomdiatom ... 
On the interfacial lithium dynamics in Li7La3Zr2O12:poly(ethylene oxide) (LiTFSI) composite polymerceramic solid electrolytes under strong polymer phase confinement
(20220527)A better molecularlevel understanding of Li+ diffusion through ceramic/polymer interfaces is key to designing highperformance composite solidstate electrolytes for allsolidstate batteries. By considering as a case ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ...
