The photometric study of the non-relaxed cluster "Mayer 3"Nov 12 2017Apr 21 2018The astrophysical parameters of the open star cluster Mayer 3 have been estimated using the Newtonian focus (f/4.84) of the 1.88 m Telescope of Kottamia Observatory in Egypt. The VRI observations have been carried out down to a limiting magnitude of V ... More

Compositionality, stochasticity and cooperativity in dynamic models of gene regulationFeb 08 2007Oct 09 2007We present an approach for constructing dynamic models for the simulation of gene regulatory networks from simple computational elements. Each element is called a ``gene gate'' and defines an input/output-relationship corresponding to the binding and ... More

Convergence Time to Equilibrium of the Metropolis dynamics for the GREMJun 30 2019We study the convergence time to equilibrium of the Metropolis dynamics for the Generalized Random Energy Model with an arbitrary number of hierarchical levels, a finite and reversible continuous-time Markov process, in terms of the spectral gap of its ...

Supergravity background of lambda-deformed model for AdS2 x S2 supercosetJan 29 2016May 05 2016Starting with the F/G supercoset model corresponding to the AdS_n x S^n superstring one can define the lambda-model of arXiv:1409.1538 either as a deformation of the F/F gauged WZW model or as an integrable one-parameter generalization of the non-abelian ...

Distortion of gamma-ray burst light curves by gravitational microlensingJan 30 1997Feb 03 1997If at cosmological distances, a small fraction of gamma-ray bursts should be multiply imaged by intervening galaxies or clusters, resulting in the appearance of two very similar bursts from the same location with a relative time delay of hours to a year. ...

Expansion of a plasma cloud into the solar windFeb 08 2008Three-dimensional (3D) hybrid particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations, with kinetic ions and fluid electrons, of a plasma cloud expansion in the solar wind are presented, revealing the dynamics of the expansion, with shock formation, magnetic field compression, ...

An Improved Process for Fabricating High-Mobility Organic Molecular Crystal Field-Effect TransistorsJun 21 2007In this paper we present an improved process for producing elastomer transistor stamps and high-mobility organic field-effect transistors (FETs) based on semiconducting acene molecular crystals. In particular, we have removed the need to use a silanized ... More
