Conformal Mapping for the Efficient Solution of Poisson Problems with the KansaRBF Method
(2017)We consider the solution of Poisson Dirichlet problems in simplyconnected irregular domains. These domains are conformally mapped onto the unit disk and the resulting Poisson Dirichlet problems are solved efficiently using ...

Article
Effects of initial state preparation on the distance dependence of electron transfer through molecular bridges and wires
(2003)The dependence of electron transfer rates and yields in bridged molecular systems on the bridge length was discussed. The dependence of the zerobias conduction of molecular wires on wire length were also discussed. Both ...

Further transformation properties of generalised inhomogeneous nonlinear diffusion equations with variable coefficients
(2005)We consider the variable coefficient inhomogeneous nonlinear diffusion equations of the form xput = [xqu nux]x. We present further transformation properties for this nonlinear class of equations that do not appear in the ...

A KansaRadial Basis Function Method for Elliptic Boundary Value Problems in Annular Domains
(2015)We employ a Kansaradial basis function (RBF) method for the numerical solution of elliptic boundary value problems in annular domains. This discretization leads, with an appropriate selection of collocation points and for ...
