We aim at testing whether Seyfert 1.8/1.9 have similar properties at UV and X-ray wavelengths to Seyfert 2. We use the 15 Seyfert 1.8/1.9 in the Veron Cetty and ... More
Combined in situ microstructural study of the relationships between local grain boundary structure and passivation on microcrystalline copperMar 13 2019In situ Electro-Chemical Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (ECSTM) and Electron Back-Scatter Diffraction analysis of the same local microstructural region were combined to study the relationships between grain boundary (GB) type and structure and passivation ...

Generating functional analysis of Minority Games with real market historiesOct 13 2004It is shown how the generating functional method of De Dominicis can be used to solve the dynamics of the original version of the minority game (MG), in which agents observe real as opposed to fake market histories. Here one again finds exact closed equations ... More
Statistical Mechanics of Recurrent Neural Networks II. DynamicsJun 01 2000A lecture notes style review of the non-equilibrium statistical mechanics of recurrent neural networks with discrete and continuous neurons (e.g. Ising, graded-response, coupled-oscillators). To be published in the Handbook of Biological Physics (North-Holland). ... More
