Multiscale representation of macromolecular motion

Posted on 5/18/11 in Research Articles

How many variables do we need to describe macromolecular motion? The answer depends on the time and length scale of interest. By analyzing the geometry of the space defined by long molecular dynamics trajectories of macromolecular systems, we find that different regions of the configurational […]

The Fractal® acoustic barrier

Posted on 3/25/09 in Research Articles

The study of the vibrations in domains with boundaries or interfaces of irregular geometry is a complex mathematical problem, for which many questions are still unsolved. Nevertheless, it has been known for a long time that objects of irregular shape or geometry are “bad resonators”. […]
