#### ENDOCOM: Abdominal aortic aneurysm test bench for in vitro simulation

(IEEE, 2007)

An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a dilatation of the aorta at the abdominal level, whose rupture is a life threatening complication. Recent treatment procedures of AAA consists in endovascular treatment with covered ...

#### Surface stability of nonlinear magnetoelastic solids

(Wiley, 2007-12)

The present paper proposes to identify surface stability when a magnetoelastic half-space is subjected to a pure homogeneous pre-deformation and to a magnetic field normal to its (plane) boundary. Clearly, the aim is to ...

#### Multiwavelength Observations of Markarian 421 in March 2001: an Unprecedented View on the X-ray/TeV Correlated Variability

(2007)

(Abridged) We present a detailed analysis of week-long simultaneous observations of the blazar Mrk421 at 2-60 keV X-rays (RXTE) and TeV gamma-rays (Whipple and HEGRA) in 2001. The unprecedented quality of this dataset ...

#### Very High Energy Observations of Gamma-Ray Burst Locations with the Whipple Telescope

(2007)

Gamma-ray burst (GRB) observations at very high energies (VHE, E > 100 GeV) can impose tight constraints on some GRB emission models. Many GRB afterglow models predict a VHE component similar to that seen in blazars and ...

#### Creep, recovery, and waves in a nonlinear fiber-reinforced viscoelastic solid

(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2007-10-10)

We present a constitutive model capturing some of the experimentally observed features of soft biological tissues: nonlinear viscoelasticity, nonlinear elastic anisotropy, and nonlinear viscous anisotropy. For this model ...

#### Weierstrass's criterion and compact solitary waves

(American Physical Society, 2007-04-17)

Weierstrass's theory is a standard qualitative tool for single degree of freedom equations, used in classical mechanics and in many textbooks. In this Brief Report we show how a simple generalization of this tool makes it ...

#### Liquid-crystal-mediated force between a cylindrical nanoparticle and substrate

(American Physical Society, 2007-10-25)

Using classical density functional theory, the structure of a molecular fluid around a cylindrical nanoparticle near a solid substrate is studied. The solvent-mediated force between the nanoparticle and the substrate is ...

#### 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.
