(20130822)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 ...

(1990)In this thesis we discuss a mesoscale model of blockcopolymer (BCP) microphase separation dynamics based on a cell dynamics system (CDS) model. The model suggests a partial differential equation (PDE) model that allows ...

(20130528)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 ...

(20120627)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 ...

(20110525)Using geometrically based approaches, optimal characteristics of nonlinear flow networks were examined. The first model studied was that of a fractallike desalination plant. Solving the equations of diffusion by analogy ...

(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 ...

(20130524)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 nonequilibrium steady states. I consider ...

(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, ...
