Noether symmetries and duality transformations in cosmologyFeb 29 2016Aug 18 2016We discuss the relation between Noether (point) symmetries and discrete symmetries for a class of minisuperspace cosmological models. We show that when a Noether symmetry exists for the gravitational Lagrangian then there exists a coordinate system in ... More
The Weak Field Limit of Fourth Order GravitySep 17 2010We discuss Newtonian and the post-Newtonian limits of Fourth Order Gravity Theories pointing out, in details, their resemblances and differences with respect to General Relativity. Particular emphasis is placed on the exact solutions and methods used ... More
Symmetric Products of Two Dimensional ComplexesOct 09 2005This paper exhibits a multiplicative and minimal cellular complex which allows explicit and complete (co)homological calculations for the symmetric products of a finite two dimensional CW complex. By considering cohomology, we observe that a classical ... More
Emergent Behaviors from A Cellular Automaton Model for Invasive Tumor Growth in Heterogeneous MicroenvironmentsNov 02 2011Jan 04 2012Understanding tumor invasion and metastasis is of crucial importance for both fundamental cancer research and clinical practice. In vitro experiments have established that the invasive growth of malignant tumors is characterized by the dendritic invasive ... More
Quantitative Characterization of the Microstructure and Transport Properties of Biopolymer NetworksMar 21 2012Biopolymer networks are of fundamental importance to many biological processes in normal and tumorous tissues. In this paper, we employ the panoply of theoretical and simulation techniques developed for characterizing heterogeneous materials to quantify ... More
