## Comparison of lateral thermal spread using monopolar and bipolar diathermy, the Harmonic Scalpel and the Ligasure.

Electrosurgery for dissection and haemostasis should be associated with minimal thermal spread to surrounding tissues. This study investigated lateral thermal spread following ex vivo application of four commonly utilized instruments.

We analyzed the splitting by an extended Hückel method using the single-crystal structural data for the compounds containing neutral, mono- and dianions of C60. The splitting of the initially triply degenerated C60 LUMO produces three molecular orbitals. The gap between the lowest and highest orbit...

We Analyze the long-range Ising model in a transverse field, where interactions Decay as a power-law with distance $\propto r^{-\alpha}$, $\alpha>0$. Using Complementary numerical and analytical techniques, we identify three dynamical Regimes: short-range-like with an emerging light cone for \$\alpha...
