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 ...
