Neuronal cell death in neurodegenerative diseases: recurring themes around protein handling
Neuronal cell death plays a role in many chronic neurodegenerative diseases with the loss of particular subsets of neurons. The loss of the neurons occurs during a period of many years, which can make the mode(s) of cell ...
Structure of molecular liquids: cavity and bridge functions of the hard spheroid fluid
(American Physical Society, 2006-06-28)
We present methodologies for calculating the direct correlation function c(1,2), the cavity function y(1,2), and the bridge function b(1,2), for molecular liquids, from Monte Carlo simulations. As an example we present ...
Monte Carlo simulations of liquid crystals near rough walls
(American Institute of Physics, 2005-02-15)
The effect of surface roughness on the structure of liquid crystalline fluids near solid substrates is studied by Monte Carlo simulations. The liquid crystal is modeled as a fluid of soft ellipsoidal molecules and the ...
Improved simulation of small electron fields for external beam radiation therapy
This paper reports on improved simulation of small electron fields from a Siemens Primus linear accelerator. Accelerator simulation was performed using the Monte Carlo user code BEAMnrc. Source and geometry parameters ...
The cell walls of pteridophytes and other green plants - a review
(British Pteridological Society, 2006-12-22)
The cell wall is one of the defining characteristics of plants and is a fundamental component in normal growth and development. Cell wall composition is a potentially valuable source of phylogenetic information as notable ...
Time-resolved fluorescence microspectroscopy for characterizing crude oils in bulk and hydrocarbon bearing fluid inclusions.
Time-resolved fluorescence data was collected from a series of 23 bulk crude petroleum oils and six microscopic hydrocarbon-bearing fluid inclusions (HCFI). The data was collected using a diode laser fluorescence lifetime ...
Surface acoustic waves in rotating orthorhombic crystals
(The Royal Society, 2004-02-08)
The propagation of surface (Rayleigh) waves over a rotating orthorhombic crystal is studied. The crystal possesses three crystallographic axes, normal to the symmetry planes: the half¿space is cut along a plane normal to ...
Seismic Rayleigh waves on an exponentially graded, orthotropic half-space
(The Royal Society, 2007)
Efforts at modelling the propagation of seismic waves in half-spaces with continuously varying properties have mostly been focused on shear-horizontal waves. Here, a sagittally polarized (Rayleigh type) wave travels along ...
An algorithm for the unit group of the Burnside ring of a finite group
(Cambridge University Press, 2007-01)
In this note we present an algorithm for the construction of the unit group of the Burnside ring Ω(G) of a finite group G from a list of representatives of the conjugacy classes of subgroups of G.
Molecular structure and phase behaviour of hairy-rod polymers
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2009)
Using dissipative particle dynamics simulations the relationship between molecular architecture and phase behaviour in model hairy-rod polymers is studied. In agreement with experimental and theoretical studies the phase ...
