Presently, these systems are used for measuring mechanical thermal noise displacement ... More

Soap-bubble Optimization of GaitsSep 08 2016Oct 26 2016In this paper, we present a geometric variational algorithm for optimizing the gaits of kinematic locomoting systems. The dynamics of this algorithm are analogous to the physics of a soap bubble, with the system's Lie bracket supplying an "inflation pressure" ... More

Thermodynamics and Quasinormal modes of Park black hole in Hořava gravityOct 08 2013We study the quasinormal modes of the massless scalar field of Park black hole in the Ho\v{r}ava gravity using the third order WKB approximation method and found that black hole is stable against these perturbation. We compare and discuss the results ... More
