#### wall energy relaxation in the Cahn-Hilliard model for moving contact lines

(AIP Publishing, 2011-01)

The Cahn-Hilliard model uses diffusion between fluid components to regularize the stress singularity at a moving contact line. In addition, it represents the dynamics of the near-wall layer by the relaxation of a wall ...

#### Small-energy analysis for the self-adjoint matrix Schrodinger operator on the half line

(AIP Publishing, 2011-10)

The matrix Schrodinger equation with a self-adjoint matrix potential is considered on the half line with the most general self-adjoint boundary condition at the origin. When the matrix potential is integrable and has a ...

#### ADAM: Analysis of Discrete Models of Biological Systems Using Computer Algebra

(2011-07-20)

Background
Many biological systems are modeled qualitatively with discrete models, such as probabilistic Boolean networks, logical models, Petri nets, and agent-based models, to gain a better understanding of them. The ...

#### Glass transition seen through asymptotic expansions

(Siam Publications, 2011)

Soft glassy materials exhibit the so-called glassy transition, which means that the behavior of the model at a low shear rate changes when a certain parameter (which we call the glass parameter) crosses a critical value. ...

#### A regularized Gauss-Newton trust region approach to imaging in diffuse optical tomography

(Siam Publications, 2011)

We present a new algorithm for the solution of nonlinear least squares problems arising from parameterized imaging problems with diffuse optical tomographic data [D. Boas et al., IEEE Signal Process. Mag., 18 (2001), pp. ...

#### A general convergence analysis of some Newton-type methods for nonlinear inverse problems

(Siam Publications, 2011)

We consider the methods x(n+1)(delta) - x(n)(delta) - g(alpha n) (F'(x(n)(delta))* F'(x(n)(delta)))F'(x(n)(delta))*(F(x(n)(delta)) - y(delta)) for solving nonlinear ill-posed inverse problems F(x) = y using the only available ...

#### Numerical investigation of elongated drops in a microfluidic T-junction

(American Institute of Physics, 2011-02)

We present a combined numerical and asymptotic approach for modeling droplets in microchannels. The magnitude of viscous forces relative to the surface tension force is characterized by a capillary number, Ca, which is ...

#### Wolfgang von Ohnesorge

(American Institute of Physics, 2011-12)

This manuscript got started when one of us (G.H.M.) presented a lecture at the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications at the University of Minnesota. The presentation included a photograph of Rayleigh and made ...

#### Interpolatory projection methods for parameterized model reduction

(Siam Publications, 2011)

We provide a unifying projection-based framework for structure-preserving interpolatory model reduction of parameterized linear dynamical systems, i.e., systems having a structured dependence on parameters that we wish to ...

#### Improved scaling for quantum monte carlo on insulators

(Siam Publications, 2011)

Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) methods are often used to calculate properties of many body quantum systems. The main cost of many QMC methods, for example, the variational Monte Carlo (VMC) method, is in constructing a sequence ...
