Modules of human micro-RNA co-target networkMay 28 2011Human micro RNAs (miRNAs) target about 90% of the coding genes and form a complex regulatory network. We study the community structure of the miRNA co-target network considering miRNAs as the nodes which are connected by weighted links. The weight of ... More

Evolution of Currents of Opposite Signs in the Flare Productive Solar Active Region NOAA 10930Aug 30 2011Analysis of a time series of high spatial resolution vector magnetograms of the active region NOAA 10930 available from SOT/SP on-board Hinode revealed that there is a mixture of upward and downward currents in the two foot-points of an emerging flux-rope. ...

Effect of Epitaxial Strain on Phase Separation in Thin FilmsOct 22 2013We examine the role of an imposed epitaxial strain e in enhancing or depressing the spinodal instability of an alloy thin film. Since the alloy film starts with an imposed strain, phase separation offers a mechanism to relieve it, but only when the film ... More

Production of J/$Ψ$-Particles at RHIC and LHC energies: An Alternative `Psi'-chologyApr 22 2012We attempt here to understand successfully some crucial aspects of $J/\Psi$-production in some high energy nuclear collisions in the light of a non-standard framework outlined in the text. It is found that the results arrived at with this main working ... More

Reparametrizing the Polyakov$-$Nambu$-$Jona-Lasinio modelSep 26 2016Aug 14 2017The Polyakov$-$Nambu$-$Jona-Lasinio model has been quite successful in describing various qualitative features of observables for strongly interacting matter, that are measurable in heavy-ion collision experiments. The question still remains on the quantitative ... More
