Monochromatic trees in random tournamentsSep 19 2018We prove that, with high probability, in every $2$-edge-colouring of the random tournament on $n$ vertices there is a monochromatic copy of every oriented tree of order $O (n / \sqrt{\log n})$. This generalises a result of the first, third and forth authors ... More

X-ray diffraction and computer simulation studies of the structure of liquid aliphatic aldehydes: from propanal to nonanalNov 26 2018Synchrotron X-ray diffraction experiments and molecular dynamics simulations have been performed on simple aliphatic aldehydes, from propanal to nonanal. The performance of the OPLS all-atom interaction potential model for aldehydes has been assessed ... More

Long-Term Stability of Horseshoe OrbitsJun 08 2012Aug 24 2012Unlike Trojans, horseshoe coorbitals are not generally considered to be long-term stable (Dermott and Murray, 1981; Murray and Dermott, 1999). As the lifetime of Earth's and Venus's horseshoe coorbitals is expected to be about a Gyr, we investigated the ... More
