A hybrid collocation method for volterra integral equations with weakly singular kernels
(Siam Publications, 2003)
The commonly used graded piecewise polynomial collocation method for weakly singular Volterra integral equations may cause serious round-off error problems due to its use of extremely nonuniform partitions and the sensitivity ...
Mathematical model of the morphogenesis checkpoint in budding yeast
(Rockefeller Univ Press, 2003-12-22)
Unusual water flux in the extracellular polysaccharide of the cyanobacterium Nostoc commune
(Amer Soc Microbiology, 2003-09-01)
van der Waals and hygroscopic forces of adhesion generated by spider capture threads
(Company of Biologists Ltd., 2003-11)
Cribellar thread is the most primitive type of sticky prey capture thread found in aerial spider webs. Its outer surface is formed of thousands of fine fibrils that issue from a cribellum spinning field. The fibrils of ...
Pyramidal and toroidal water drops after impact on a solid surface
(Cambridge University Press, 2003-06)
Superhydrophobic surfaces generate very high contact angles as a result of their microstructure. The impact of a water drop on such a surface shows unusual features, such as total rebound at low impact speed. We report ...
Nonlinear current-induced forces in Si atomic wires
(American Physical Society, 2003-04)
We report first-principles calculations of current-induced forces in Si atomic wires as a function of bias and wire length. We find that these forces are strongly nonlinear as a function of bias due to the competition ...
Chaotic transport in low-dimensional superlattices
(American Physical Society, 2003-02)
We predict that in arrays of quantum dots (0D superlattice) and arrays of one-dimensional quantum wires (1D superlattice) chaotic transport should be observed in the presence of an ac field and for a wide range of physical ...
NuTeV anomaly, neutrino mixing, and a heavy Higgs boson
(Amer Physical Soc, 2003-04-01)
inertia-induced breakup of highly viscous drops subjected to simple shear
(AIP Publishing, 2003-05)
We investigate the inertia-driven breakup of viscous drops suspended in a less viscous liquid under simple shear. For Stokes flow, it is known that there is a critical value of the viscosity ratio, beyond which breakup ...
Transfer function approach to output specification in certain linear distributed parameter systems
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2003)
We carry out error estimation of a class of immersed finite element (IFE) methods for elliptic interface problems with both perfect and imperfect interface jump conditions. A key feature of these methods is that their ...
