ABA triblock copolymerbased model networks in the bulk: Effect of the number of arms on microphase behavior
(2005)The microphase separation behavior in the strong segregation limit of model networks based on crosslinked ABA triblock copolymers in the bulk was investigated by calculating analytically the Gibbs free energies of the ...

Change of θ dependence in 4D SU(N) gauge theories across the deconfinement transition
(2013)We study the dependence of 4D SU(N) gauge theories on the topological θ term at finite temperature T. We exploit the lattice formulation of the theory, presenting numerical results for the expansion of the free energy up ...

Characterization of the Optimal Disturbance Attenuation for Nonlinear Stochastic Uncertain Systems
(2003)This paper is concerned with an abstract formulation of stochastic optimal control systems, in which uncertainty is described by a relative entropy constraint between the nominal measure and the uncertain measure, while ...

Article
Continuum treatment of longrange interactions in free energy calculations. Application to proteinligand binding
(1997)A method is proposed to include longrange electrostatic interactions in free energy calculations that involve the creation or deletion of net charges in a macromolecule. The vicinity of the mutation site is treated ...

Article
Dissecting the stabilization of iodide at the airwater interface into components: A free energy analysis
(2006)Recent experiments and simulations show that large chaotropic anions favor solvation at the water surface, mainly due to induction interactions dominated by ionic polarizabilities. We compare the solvation freeenergy ...

Equation of state for star polymers in good solvents
(2000)A freeenergy model for star polymers was developed in good solvents that accurately describes concentrated polymer solutions and displays the correct universal scaling behaviour, in the limit of infinite molecular weight, ...

Article
The lattice free energy of QCD with clover fermions, up to threeloops
(2008)We calculate the perturbative value of the free energy in Lattice QCD, up to three loops. Our calculation is performed using Wilson gluons and the SheikholeslamiWohlert (clover) improved action for fermions. The free ...

Microphase separation in ABA triblock copolymerbased model conetworks in the bulk: Effect of loop formation
(2006)This work estimates the free energy and domain size and predicts the phase diagram of microphaseseparated model polymer conetworks, consisting of endlinked ABA triblock copolymers with crosslink points of relatively low ...

Preadsorbed waterpromoted mechanism of the watergas shift reaction
(2008)In this work, a detailed first principle study of the mechanism of the heterogeneous catalytic watergas shift (WGS) reaction on a rhodium cluster is presented. A large number of possible reaction mechanisms relevant to ...

Relations between information theory, robustness, and statistical mechanics of stochastic systems
(2004)The fundamental question, which will be addressed in this talk are the relations between dissipation, which is a concept of robustness, entropy rate, which is a concept of information theory, and statistical mechanics. ...

Article
Robust control of uncertain contextsensitive probabilistic Boolean networks
(2009)Uncertainty is an intrinsic phenomenon in control of gene regulatory networks (GRNs). The presence of uncertainty is related to impreciseness of GRN models due to: (1) Errors caused by imperfection of measurement devices ...

θ Dependence of 4D SU(N) gauge theories at finite temperature
(Proceedings of Science (PoS), 2013)We report a study of the dependence of 4D SU(N) gauge theories on the topological θ term at finite temperature, and in particular in the largeN limit. We show that theθ dependence drastically changes across the deconfinement ...
