    We use a continuum model to investigate the isochoric axial contraction and expansion of a right circular cylindrical specimen composed of a nematic elastomer that is cross-linked in a uniaxial state and then annealed. ...

    A theory of stationary particle size distributions in coagulating systems with particle injection at small sizes is constructed. The size distributions have the form of power laws. Under rather general assumptions, the ...
