#### On a stochastic hyperbolic system in linear elasticity

(Siam Publications, 2000-08)

In this paper we discuss the Cauchy problem for linear elasticity with a space-time white noise forcing term. We show that the solution can be represented by a formula analogous to the Riesz formula for solutions of a wave ...

#### On a wave equation with a boundary condition associated with capillary waves

(Siam Publications, 1998-09)

This paper discusses an initial-boundary value problem for a wave equation with a nonstandard boundary condition associated with linear capillary waves on the surface of a compressible liquid. We prove the well-posedness ...

#### Draw resonance revisited

(Siam Publications, 2006)

We consider the problem of isothermal fiber spinning in a Newtonian fluid with no inertia. In particular, we focus on the effect of the downstream boundary condition. For prescribed velocity, it is well known that an ...

#### Short wave stability for inviscid shear flow

(Siam Publications, 2008)

We consider the linear stability of inviscid shear flows. While it is well known that discontinuous velocity profiles lead to short wave instabilities and ill-posedness, known examples of instability for smooth profiles ...

#### 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 ...

#### Least-squares finite element approximations to solutions of interface problems

(Siam Publications, 1998-02)

A least-squares finite element method for second-order elliptic boundary value problems having interfaces due to discontinuous media properties is proposed and analyzed. Both Dirichlet and Neumann boundary data are treated. ...

#### Invariant measures for the tochastic von Karman plate equation

(Siam Publications, 2005)

We prove the existence of an invariant measure for the von Karman plate equation with random noise. The nonlinear term which symbolizes the von Karman equation inhibits the standard procedure for the existence of an invariant ...

#### Glucose modulates Ca2+ (i) oscillations in pancreatic islets via ionic and glycolytic mechanisms

(CELL PRESS, 2006-09)

Pancreatic islets of Langerhans display complex intracellular calcium changes in response to glucose that include fast (seconds), slow (similar to 5 min), and mixed fast/slow oscillations; the slow and mixed oscillations ...

#### Modelling Allee effects in a transgenic mosquito population during range expansion

(Taylor & Francis, 2018-04-27)

Mosquitoes are vectors for many diseases that cause significant mortality and morbidity. As mosquito populations expand their range, they may undergo mate-finding Allee effects such that their ability to successfully ...

#### How soap bubbles freeze

(Springer Nature, 2019-06-18)

Droplets or puddles tend to freeze from the propagation of a single freeze front. In contrast, videographers have shown that as soap bubbles freeze, a plethora of growing ice crystals can swirl around in a beautiful effect ...
