Semi-modules and irreducible components of affine Deligne-Lusztig varietiesFeb 13 2018Feb 21 2018Let $G$ be the Weil restriction of a general linear group. By extending the method of semi-modules developed by de Jong, Oort, Viehmann and Hamacher, we obtain a stratification of the affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties for $G$ (in the affine Grassmannian) ...

A stochastic approach to a new type of parabolic variational inequalitiesMar 21 2012Mar 23 2012We study the following quasilinear partial differential equation with two subdifferential operators: $${\frac{\partial u}{\partial s}(s,x)} + (\mathcal{L}u)(s,x,u(s,x),(\nabla u(s,x))^\ast\sigma(s,x,u(s,x))) + f(s,x,u(s,x),(\nabla u(s,x))^\ast\sigma(s,x,u(s,x))) ...

Thickness monitoring of graphene on SiC using low-energy electron diffractionFeb 04 2010The formation of epitaxial graphene on SiC is monitored in-situ using low-energy electron diffraction (LEED). The possibility of using LEED as an in-situ thickness monitor of the graphene is examined. The ratio of primary diffraction spot intensities ... More
