  • Rajan, Aruna (2010-01-06)
    Microsecond long Molecular Dynamics (MD) trajectories of biomolecular processes are now possible due to advances in computer technology. Soon, trajectories long enough to probe dynamics over many milliseconds will become ...

  • Shinozaki, Aritomo (1993-10)
    In this Thesis, we study the kinetics of systems undergoing spinodal decomposition, using computational and semi-analytical methods. We use a Cell Dynamical System (CDS) to build effective computational models of spinodal ...

  • Friedman, Nir (2013-08-22)
    The idea of systems that evolve via avalanches is a simple, yet powerful one. A collection of elements that interact with one another, with each element possessing the ability to change the state of other elements when ...

  • Bahiana, Monica Pereira (1990)
    In this thesis we discuss a mesoscale model of block-copolymer (BCP) microphase separation dynamics based on a cell dynamics system (CDS) model. The model suggests a partial differential equation (PDE) model that allows ...

  • Wang, Zhenyu (2013-05-28)
    This dissertation focuses ultimately on the topic of evolution, which is the foundation of modern biology. I hope to understand, in a general sense, evolution on a population scale by investigating individual level ...

  • Tan, Ming Yang Jeremy (2012-06-27)
    Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) has been used widely as a statistical criterion to compare the appropriateness of different parametric models underlying a particular dataset. Under suitable conditions, AIC is an unbiased ...

  • Graves, Evan Taclibon (2009)
    Kinesin-1 and Eg5 are molecular motors that are essential for eukaryotic cell growth and development. Kinesin-1 motors transport intracellular cargo along the microtubule cytoskeleton through and against the dense viscoelastic ...

  • Singleton, Martin S. (2011-05-25)
    Using geometrically based approaches, optimal characteristics of nonlinear flow networks were examined. The first model studied was that of a fractal-like desalination plant. Solving the equations of diffusion by analogy ...

  • Bandyopadhyay, Akash (2001)
    In 1970 Callan, Coleman, and Jackiw found that it is always possible to improve the symmetric stress-energy tensor of a renormalizable relativistic field theory over (3+1)-dimensional flat space-time manifold. The improved ...

  • Anduaga, Inaki P. (2011-01-14)
    Two different problems involving many-body systems are presented. A hydrodynamic version of the Calogero system of one-dimensional particles interacting on the line is derived using a classical field formalism, and the ...

  • Balsera, Manuel-Angel (1998)
    The conformational changes of proteins are studied theoretically with the help of coarsegrained mesoscopic models of protein structure. The models explicitly incorporate the effects of the polarity of the peptide backbone ...

  • Tunguz, Bojan (2006)
    This is a study of Non-Local Gauge Invariant Quantum Field Theory. NonLocal gauge invariance is an extension of the group of local gauge transformations that has been extensively used in construction of physical theories. We ...

  • Sipos, Maksim (2013-05-24)
    In this thesis, I consider systems from two seemingly different fields: fluid dynamics and microbial ecology. In these systems, the unifying features are the existences of global non-equilibrium steady states. I consider ...

  • San Martin, Luis Emilio (1998)
    Many nonequilibrium phenomena are spatially extended, and the most popular means to model them is the partial differential equation (PDE). Resultant PDEs are, however, often nonlinear, defying analytical approaches. Thus, ...
