This is the alumni magazine of the Department of Chemistry at Virginia Tech.
Breathing dynamics in heteropolymer DNA
(CELL PRESS, 2007-04)
While the statistical mechanical description of DNA has a long tradition, renewed interest in DNA melting from a physics perspective is nourished by measurements of the fluctuation dynamics of local denaturation bubbles ...
Structural refinement of neutron powder diffraction data of two-stage martensitic phase transformations in Ti50.75Ni47.75Fe1.50 shape memory alloy
(Cambridge University Press, 2007-09)
Transformation behaviors of the technologically important polycrystalline Ti50.75Ni47.75Fe1.50 shape memory alloy were investigated using differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and powder diffraction techniques. DSC ...
Solutions and optimality criteria to box constrained nonconvex minimization problems
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2007-05-01)
The design of elastic structures to optimize strength and economy of materials is a fundamental problem in structural engineering and related areas of applied mathematics. In this article we explore a finite dimensional ...
The End of the Cornucopian Delusion
(Virignia Tech, 2007)
Many believe that they can achieve the cornucopian dream by getting to a certain place, such as the United States, where others may be appearing to live the dream, even though all evidence shows that the Industrial age and ...
Current distribution in systems with anomalous diffusion: renormalization group approach
(Iop Publishing Ltd, 2007-02-16)
Infectious diseases in wildlife: the community ecology context
(Ecological Society of America, 2007-12)
Species diversity can have important effects on disease dynamics. While these effects are often considered with respect to alternate hosts and predators, the influence of diversity may also be seen at the level of the ...
