Existence of negative differential thermal conductance in onedimensional diffusive thermal transport.
Physical Review E 87(6):062104 (2013) PMID 23848624
We show that in a finite onedimensional (1D) system with diffusive thermal transport described by the Fourier's law, negative differential thermal conductance (NDTC) cannot occur when the temperature at one end is fixed and there are no abrupt junctions. We demonstrate that NDTC in this case requir... 
MRI evidence for a recedingfront effect in drying porous media.
Physical Review E 87(6):062303 (2013) PMID 23848671
We propose a protocol to observe simultaneously the distributions of air, liquid, and colloid through the unsaturated solid porous structure. Thus we show that the above phenomenon comes from a recedingfront effect: The elements migrate towards the free surface of the sample and accumulate in the r... 
Static fluctuations of a thick onedimensional interface in the 1+1 directed polymer formulation: numerical study.
Physical Review E 87(6):062405 (2013) PMID 23848695
We study numerically the geometrical and freeenergy fluctuations of a static onedimensional (1D) interface with a shortrange elasticity, submitted to a quenched randombond Gaussian disorder of finite correlation length ξ>0 and at finite temperature T. Using the exact mapping from the static 1D i... 
Nematic fluctuations and semisoft elasticity in liquidcrystal elastomers.
Physical Review E 87(6):062509 (2013) PMID 23848707
We give a detailed theory of nematic fluctuations in liquidcrystal elastomers (LCEs) and calculate relaxation rates as obtained by dynamic light scattering (DLS). In ideal LCEs, a nematic state is formed by a spontaneous orientational symmetry breaking of an isotropic state, manifesting itself in a... 
Nonequilibrium chemistry in confined environments: a lattice Brusselator model.
Physical Review E 87(6):062923 (2013) PMID 23848764
We study the effect of molecular crowding on a typical example of a chemical oscillator: the Brusselator model. We adopt to this end a nonequilibrium thermodynamic description, in which the size of particles is introduced via a lattice gas model. The impenetrability and finite volume of the species... 
Synchronous equilibrium model for the diffusion of mutually exclusive particles in a heterogeneous lattice of adsorption sites.
Physical Review E 87(6):063306 (2013) PMID 23848805
We constructed a synchronous, nonglassforming rule for diffusion of mutually exclusive particles in a lattice of adsorption sites. The rule satisfies detailed balance in the presence of both homogeneous and heterogeneous adsorption energies. Our model differs from the usual latticegas cellular au... 
Aging processes in systems with anomalous slow dynamics.
Physical Review E 87(11):012114 (2013) PMID 23410290
We here study two simple driven systemsthe onedimensional ABC model and a related domain model with simplified dynamicsthat are known to exhibit anomalous slow relaxation where the asymptotic logarithmic growth regime is readily accessible. Studying twotimes correlation and response functions, w... 
Equilibration and thermalization of the dissipative quantum harmonic oscillator in a nonthermal environment.
Physical Review E 87(11):012127 (2013) PMID 23410303
We study the dissipative quantum harmonic oscillator with general nonthermal preparations of the harmonic oscillator bath. The focus is on equilibration of the oscillator in the longtime limit and the additional requirements for thermalization. Our study is based on the exact solution of the micros... 
Atomic force microscopy study of surface topography of films of cholesteric oligomer and polymerbased mixtures with photovariable helix pi...
Physical Review E 87(11):012503 (2013) PMID 23410345
The surface topography of glassforming polymers and oligomer cholesteric systems with a phototunable helix pitch was studied. For this purpose several mixtures based on nematic polyacrylate and cholesteric cyclosiloxanes doped with chiralphotochromic dopant were prepared and invest... 
Improved contact prediction in proteins: Using pseudolikelihoods to infer Potts models.
Physical Review E 87(11):012707 (2013) PMID 23410359
We show that the pseudolikelihood method, applied to 21state Potts models describing the statistical properties of families of evolutionarily related proteins, significantly outperforms existing approaches to the directcoupling analysis, the latter being based on standard meanfield techniques. Th...
