Chlorine Adsorption on Graphene: ChlorographeneNov 22 2012Dec 15 2012We perform first-principles structure optimization, phonon frequency and finite temperature molecular dynamics calculations based on density functional theory to study the interaction of chlorine atoms with graphene predicting the existence of possible ...

On the string Lie algebraJul 25 2014We construct an abelian representative for the crossed module associated to the string Lie algebra. We show how to apply this construction in order to define quasi-invariant tensors which serve to categorify the infinitesimal braiding on the category ... More

Suppression of Star Formation in the Hosts of Low-Excitation Radio GalaxiesNov 25 2015The feedback from radio-loud active galactic nuclei (R-AGN) may help maintain low star formation (SF) rates in their early-type hosts, but the observational evidence for this mechanism has been inconclusive. We study systematic differences of aggregate ... More
