Eco-Ethics and Sustainability Ethics
(Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics, 2003)
This book is part one of a collection of John Cairns, Jr's papers and articles highlighting the importance of eco-ethics and sustainability ethics in protecting the biospheric life support system.
Relevance of space anisotropy in the critical behavior of m-axial Lifshitz points
(American Physical Society, 2003-12)
The critical behavior of d-dimensional systems with n-component order parameter phi is studied at an m-axial Lifshitz point where a wave-vector instability occurs in an m-dimensional subspace R-m (m>1). Field theoretic ...
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 ...
Quark-lepton unification and lepton flavor nonconservation from a TeV-scale seesaw neutrino mass texture
(American Physical Society, 2003-10-01)
In a recent paper we pointed out that the mixing of the light neutrinos with heavy gauge singlet states could reconcile the Z-pole data from e(+)e(-) colliders and the nu(mu) ((nu) over bar (mu)) scattering data from the ...
Vortex transport and voltage noise in disordered superconductors
(Elsevier Science Bv, 2003-02-01)
Shot noise in nanoscale conductors from first principles
(American Physical Society, 2003-04)
We describe a field-theoretic approach to calculate quantum shot noise in nanoscale conductors from first principles. Our starting point is the second-quantization field operator to calculate shot noise in terms of single ...
Quanta. Vol. 4, Issue 2 (October 2003)
(Virginia Tech Physics Department, 2003-10)
A semi-annual newsletter for the faculty, staff, students, alumni & friends of the Virginia Tech Physics Department.
Food web structure and the role of epilithic biofilms in cave streams
(Ecological Society of America, 2003-09)
Cave stream food webs rely exclusively on detritus from the surface for energy and represent a heterotrophic end point in the continuum of stream types. Both dissolved organic matter (DOM) and particulate organic matter, ...
