  8. The Immortality of Ms Jones

    PubMed Central

    Gallagher, Timothy

    2014-01-01

    When I began my medical student clinical rotations, I quickly became overwhelmed by feelings of inadequacy. While the doctors around me conjured appropriate diagnoses and treatment approaches, I fumbled with the only tools I possessed: my time and a smile. It was only when I met the patient Ms Jones that I came to understand the potential impact of these simple tools. My encouragement became part of her recovery process. She gave me the confidence to construct this ability of comforting patients into a small platform of confidence from which I could safely venture to educate patients or suggest treatments to residents. It could be something that I could reliably fall back on in times of doubt and something I could pass along to other people I met. PMID:25024247

  10. The elusive Henry Jones Shrapnell.

    PubMed

    McGovern, F H

    1983-07-01

    In a small series of articles published in The London Gazette in 1830 Henry Jones Shrapnell, surgeon, first described the correct form and structure of the tympanic membrane. He divided the drum membrane into two parts, the pars tensa and the pars flaccida. To this day the latter structure is known to every otologist and to most medical students as Shrapnell's membrane. In addition he wrote on the function of the membrana tympani, the nerves of the ear, and the true anatomy of the os incus. Heretofore the lenticular process of the incus was considered a separate bone in the ossicular chain. In spite of his distinctive contribution to medicine, a search of over a decade failed to uncover little basic information about Shrapnell's life, and for this reason he has been called by a distinguished librarian, the elusive Mr. Shrapnell. Recently, from my continued investigation, and with the help of many fine London scholars, a clearer picture has emerged of Shrapnell's forebearers, his family, his education and his death.

  14. Test pilots 1952 - Walker, Butchart, and Jones

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    1952-01-01

    This photo shows test pilots, (Left-Right) Joseph A. Walker, Stanley P. Butchart and Walter P. Jones, standing in front of the Douglas D-558-II Skystreak, in 1952. These three test pilots at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics' High-Speed Flight Research Station probably were discussing their flights in the aircraft. Joe flew research flights on the D-558-I #3 (14 flights, first on June 29, 1951) investigating buffeting, tail loads, and longitudinal stability. He flew the D-558-II #2 (3 flights, first on April 29, 1955) and recorded data on lateral stability and control. He also made pilot check-out flights in the D-558-II #3 (2 flights, first on May 7, 1954). For fifteen years Walker served as a pilot at the Edwards flight research facility (today known as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Dryden Flight Research Center) on research flights as well as chase missions for other pilots on NASA and Air Force research programs. On June 8, 1966, he was flying chase in NASA's F-104N for the Air Force's experimental bomber, North American XB-70A, when he was fatally injured in a mid-air collision between the planes. Stan flew the D-558-I #3 (12 flights, first on October 19, 1951) to determine the dynamic longitudinal stability characteristics and investigations of the lateral stability and control. He made one flight in the D-558-II #3 on June 26, 1953, as a pilot check-out flight. Butchart retired from the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards, California, on February 27, 1976, after a 25-year career in research aviation. Stan served as a research pilot, chief pilot, and director of flight operations. Walter P. Jones was a research pilot for NACA from the fall of 1950 to July 1952. He had been in the U.S. Air Force as a pilot before joining the Station. Jones flew the D-558-I #3 (5 flights, first on February 13, 1951) to study buffeting, tail loads and longitudinal stability. Jones made research flights on the D-558-II #3 ( 7 flights

  2. Freezing of Lennard-Jones-type fluids

    SciTech Connect

    Khrapak, Sergey A.; Chaudhuri, Manis; Morfill, Gregor E.

    2011-02-07

    We put forward an approximate method to locate the fluid-solid (freezing) phase transition in systems of classical particles interacting via a wide range of Lennard-Jones-type potentials. This method is based on the constancy of the properly normalized second derivative of the interaction potential (freezing indicator) along the freezing curve. As demonstrated recently it yields remarkably good agreement with previous numerical simulation studies of the conventional 12-6 Lennard-Jones (LJ) fluid [S.A.Khrapak, M.Chaudhuri, G.E.Morfill, Phys. Rev. B 134, 052101 (2010)]. In this paper, we test this approach using a wide range of the LJ-type potentials, including LJ n-6 and exp-6 models, and find that it remains sufficiently accurate and reliable in reproducing the corresponding freezing curves, down to the triple-point temperatures. One of the possible application of the method--estimation of the freezing conditions in complex (dusty) plasmas with ''tunable'' interactions--is briefly discussed.

  3. Robert T. Jones, One of a Kind

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Vincenti, Walter G.

    2005-01-01

    His contemporaries saw R.T. Jones as one of the notably creative aerodynamicists of the twentieth century. This essay reviews his remarkable life and career, including his years as a farm-country boy, college dropout, and fledgling airplane designer in Missouri, his time as an elevator operator and self-directed student in Washington, D.C., and his long professional career as an aerodynamicist at the Langley and Ames Aeronautical Laboratories and Stanford University. The focus in his career is on his fundamental discovery of the benefits of sweepback for the wings of high-speed airplanes. This includes speculation about his highly intuitive thought processes in arriving at his creative ideas. I also give an account of his work on blood flow and the mechanical heart, his avocational accomplishments as a maker of telescopes and violins, and his philosophical interest in human affairs.

    Ormes, Johnathan F.; Streitmatter, Robert E.

    2007-12-01

    Frank C. Jones, an emeritus theoretical physicist at NASA, died May 2, 2007 at age 74 after a struggle with a rare form of cancer. He died at his home in Silver Spring, Maryland, surrounded by his family. Frank was born July 30, 1932 in Fort Worth, Texas, the oldest of three boys. His parents were Kenneth Hugh and Nancy Culver Jones. Frank's father was a lawyer, and his grandfather was a Methodist minister. Frank graduated from Rice University in 1954 and earned a master's degree in 1955 and a doctorate in 1961, both in physics, from the University of Chicago. He did his graduate work with Prof. John Simpson. Dr. Jones began his professional career as an instructor in physics at Princeton University before joining NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in 1963 as a National Research Council associate. He subsequently became a member of the Theory Division and the Laboratory for High Energy Astrophysics. His area of expertise was the origin, transport, and electromagnetic interactions of cosmic rays. His particular focus was the stochastic physics related to the diffusion of particles in random fields, plasma turbulence, and the shock acceleration of charged particles in collisionless plasmas. From 1993 to 1995, Frank was head of Goddard's Theoretical High Energy Astrophysics Office and continued to serve as Head of the Theory group. In 2003 he served as Acting Chief of the Laboratory for High Energy Astrophysics. He retired in 2005 and continued his affiliation with NASA as an emeritus scientist at Goddard until his death. As a youngster, Frank showed the signs of curiosity and initiative that indicated he might become an experimentalist. At the memorial service for Frank, his brother related the stories of how Frank had rigged a hidden microphone to play through the family television as his brother courted a young woman on the front porch swing, and how one of Frank's early chemistry experiments caused all the family silverware to turn black.

  10. Transport theory for the Lennard-Jones dense fluid

    SciTech Connect

    Karkheck, J.; Stell, G.; Xu, J.

    1988-11-01

    A kinetic theory for a fluid of particles interacting via a pair potential with hard-core plus truncated tail is described and used to derive a transport theory for the Lennard-Jones fluid as well as the square-well fluid. Numerical results for shear viscosity, thermal conductivity, and the self-diffusion coefficient are given for the Lennard-Jones fluid and compared with simulation and experimental results. Our Lennard-Jones theory proves quantitatively useful over a wide range of states.

    John Goronwy Jones Gron Jones, as he was known to all, was a champion of Physics Education and his death, shortly before his eightieth birthday, robbed physics teachers of a colleague who fought many battles on their behalf. He was not shy of taking issue with anyone in authority who might be putting forward policies which would harm his great love: Physics Education and Physics Teaching. His photograph shows a man with an impish grin, looking friend and foe alike straight in the eye, before delivering the death blow to an argument which was founded on less than common sense. At other times he would listen patiently to the woes of colleagues before offering them fatherly/grandfatherly advice so that whoever was on the receiving end would go away feeling better for the encounter. Gron was born in Swansea and educated at Lewis Boys Grammar School in Glamorgan before entering University College Cardiff first of all as a mathematician before graduating in Physics in 1941. After his war service in the RAF, working on signals and radar development, he returned to do an MSc in X-ray crystallography before completing a PGCE in Bristol. What then passed for teacher training in all institutions left him wary of returning to train teachers himself but after 14 years spent teaching physics in three schools he returned to Cardiff and began a 25 year career in teacher training. He and his two colleagues, Clifford Othen (chemistry) and Douglas Hillier (biology) built up the Cardiff Science Centre as a focus for initial and in-service science teacher training in South Wales. The triumvirate was well known and a power to be reckoned with. They created links between the University Science Departments and the Schools. Gron knew the local schools and their physics teachers intimately. Cardiff became a focus for science education both nationally and internationally. He was a frequent attender at both ICPE (International Commission for Physics Education) and GIREP (International Physics

    The repertoire of problems theoretically solvable by a quantum computer recently expanded to include the approximate evaluation of knot invariants, specifically the Jones polynomial. The experimental implementation of this evaluation, however, involves many known experimental challenges. Here we present experimental results for a small-scale approximate evaluation of the Jones polynomial by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR); in addition, we show how to escape from the limitations of NMR approaches that employ pseudopure states. Specifically, we use two spin-1/2 nuclei of natural abundance chloroform and apply a sequence of unitary transforms representing the trefoil knot, the figure-eight knot, and the Borromean rings. After measuring the nuclear spin state of the molecule in each case, we are able to estimate the value of the Jones polynomial for each of the knots.

    Lucile Jones, science advisor for risk reduction with the U.S. Geological Survey, will deliver the annual public lecture at the 2013 AGU Fall Meeting. A familiar face to many in California, Jones is frequently interviewed on television after major earthquakes in the southern part of the state. Her work, which has resulted in more than 90 publications on research seismology, focuses on foreshocks and earthquake physics. Her current Multi-Hazards Demonstration Project aims to demonstrate to the public how science can improve society's resiliency to earthquakes.

  19. Edward Burne-Jones' Heavenly Conception: A Biblical Cosmos

    Cheney, L. D. G.

    2016-01-01

    Edward Burne-Jones was a Pre-Raphaelite artist and designer, who collaborated with William Morris on many decorative arts (stained glass windows, book illustrations, ceramic and tapestry designs). He was a founding partner in the firm Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Company. Burne-Jones composed The Days of Creation between 1870 and 1876 for the Morris firm. These paintings were executed in gouache and gold paint, and cartoons were made for tile and in stained glass, for the Church of St. Editha at Tamworth in Staffordshire. Burne-Jones' creation was highly praised and elegantly described by Oscar Wilde: “The picture is divided into six compartments, each representing a day in the Creation of the World, under the symbol of an angel holding a crystal globe, within which is shown the work of a day.” This paper will examine how Burne-Jones visualized an unusual celestial creation where angels holding magical spheres unveil the divine manifestation for the creation of a terrestrial realm. He created a cosmic utopia of the natural world.

  9. Experimental approximation of the Jones polynomial with one quantum bit.

    PubMed

    2009-12-18

    We present experimental results approximating the Jones polynomial using 4 qubits in a liquid state nuclear magnetic resonance quantum information processor. This is the first experimental implementation of a complete problem for the deterministic quantum computation with one quantum bit model of quantum computation, which uses a single qubit accompanied by a register of completely random states. The Jones polynomial is a knot invariant that is important not only to knot theory, but also to statistical mechanics and quantum field theory. The implemented algorithm is a modification of the algorithm developed by Shor and Jordan suitable for implementation in NMR. These experimental results show that for the restricted case of knots whose braid representations have four strands and exactly three crossings, identifying distinct knots is possible 91% of the time.

    González-Calderón, Alfredo; Rocha-Ichante, Adrián

    2015-01-21

    We present an exact analytical solution for the second virial coefficient of a generalized Lennard-Jones type of pair potential model. The potential can be reduced to the Lennard-Jones, hard-sphere, and sticky hard-sphere models by tuning the potential parameters corresponding to the width and depth of the well. Thus, the second virial solution can also regain the aforementioned cases. Moreover, the obtained expression strongly resembles the one corresponding to the Kihara potential. In fact, the Fk functions are the same. Furthermore, for these functions, the complete expansions at low and high temperature are given. Additionally, we propose an alternative stickiness parameter based on the obtained second virial coefficient. PMID:25612707

    We investigate solid-solid and solid-liquid transitions of elastic flexible off-lattice polymers with Lennard-Jones monomer-monomer interaction and anharmonic springs by means of sophisticated variants of multicanonical Monte Carlo methods. We find that the low-temperature behavior depends strongly and nonmonotonically on the system size and exhibits broad similarities to unbound atomic clusters. Particular emphasis is dedicated to the classification of icosahedral and nonicosahedral low-energy polymer morphologies.

  13. Quantum algorithms for virtual Jones polynomials via Thistlethwaite theorems

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Vélez, Mario; Ospina, Juan

    2010-04-01

    Recently a quantum algorithm for the Jones polynomial of virtual links was proposed by Kauffman and Dye via the implementation of the virtual braid group in anyonic topological quantum computation when the virtual crossings are considered as generalized swap gates. Also recently, a mathematical method for the computation of the Jones polynomial of a given virtual link in terms of the relative Tuttle polynomial of its face (Tait) graph with some suitable variable substitutions was proposed by Diao and Hetyei. The method of Diao and Hetyei is offered as an alternative to the ribbon graph approach according to which the Tutte polynomial of a given virtual link is computed in terms of the Bollobás- Riordan polynomial of the corresponding ribbon graph. The method of Diao and Hetyei can be considered as an extension of the celebrated Thistlethwaite theorem according to which invariant polynomials for knots and links are derived from invariant polynomials for graphs. Starting from these ideas we propose a quantum algorithm for the Jones polynomial of a given virtual link in terms of the generalized Tutte polynomials by exploiting the Thistlethwaite theorem and the Kauffman algorithm . Our method is claimed as the quantum version of the Diao-Hetyei method. Possible supersymmetric implementations of our algortihm are discussed jointly with its formulations using topological quantum lambda calculus.

  14. A Viola-Jones based hybrid face detection framework

    2013-12-01

    Improvements in face detection performance would benefit many applications. The OpenCV library implements a standard solution, the Viola-Jones detector, with a statistically boosted rejection cascade of binary classifiers. Empirical evidence has shown that Viola-Jones underdetects in some instances. This research shows that a truncated cascade augmented by a neural network could recover these undetected faces. A hybrid framework is constructed, with a truncated Viola-Jones cascade followed by an artificial neural network, used to refine the face decision. Optimally, a truncation stage that captured all faces and allowed the neural network to remove the false alarms is selected. A feedforward backpropagation network with one hidden layer is trained to discriminate faces based upon the thresholding (detection) values of intermediate stages of the full rejection cascade. A clustering algorithm is used as a precursor to the neural network, to group significant overlappings. Evaluated on the CMU/VASC Image Database, comparison with an unmodified OpenCV approach shows: (1) a 37% increase in detection rates if constrained by the requirement of no increase in false alarms, (2) a 48% increase in detection rates if some additional false alarms are tolerated, and (3) an 82% reduction in false alarms with no reduction in detection rates. These results demonstrate improved face detection and could address the need for such improvement in various applications.

    Four crystal forms have been grown and characterized by X-ray diffraction of a Bence-Jones protein collected from the urine of a multiple myeloma patient more than 40 y ago. The trigonal crystal form may shed some light on the formation of fibrils common to certain storage diseases. Four crystal forms have been grown and characterized by X-ray diffraction of a Bence-Jones protein collected from the urine of a multiple myeloma patient more than 40 years ago. Closely related tetragonal and orthorhombic forms belonging to space groups P4{sub 3}2{sub 1}2 and P2{sub 1}2{sub 1}2{sub 1}, with unit-cell parameters a = b = 68.7, c = 182.1 and a = 67.7, b = 69.4, c = 87.3 Å, diffract to 1.5 and 1.9 Å, respectively. Two closely related trigonal forms, both belonging to space group P3{sub 1}21 with unit-cell parameters a = b = 154.3 Å but differing by a doubling of the c axis, one 46.9 Å and the other 94.0 Å, diffract to 2.9 and 2.6 Å resolution, respectively. The trigonal crystal of short c-axis length shows a positive indication of twinning. The trigonal crystal of longer c axis, which appeared only after eight months of incubation at room temperature, is likely to be composed of proteolytically degraded molecules and unlike the other crystal forms contains two entire Bence-Jones dimers in the asymmetric unit. This latter crystal form may shed some light on the formation of fibrils common to certain storage diseases.

    We introduce a nonequilibrium off-lattice model for anisotropic phenomena in fluids. This is a Lennard-Jones generalization of the driven lattice-gas model in which the particles' spatial coordinates vary continuously. A comparison between the two models allows us to discuss some exceptional, hardly realistic features of the original discrete system--which has been considered a prototype for nonequilibrium anisotropic phase transitions. We thus help to clarify open issues, and discuss on the implications of our observations for future investigation of anisotropic phase transitions. PMID:16196640

    2010-11-15

    By relying on an advanced Jones calculus, we analyze the polarization properties of light upon propagation through metamaterial slabs in a comprehensive manner. Based on symmetry considerations, we show that all periodic metamaterials may be divided into five different classes only. It is shown that each class differently affects the polarization of the transmitted light and sustains different eigenmodes. We show how to deduce these five classes from symmetry considerations and provide a simple algorithm that can be applied to decide to which class a given metamaterial belongs by measuring only the transmitted intensities.

Each of the two Australian species was originally described from single samples from Western Australia. In this study, collections of Penicillata from museums in all states of Australia were examined to provide further details of the two described species, to revise the diagnoses for both the genus and the species, and to better understand the distribution of the two species in Australia. In addition, two new species Unixenus karajinensis sp. n. and Unixenus corticolus sp. n. are described. PMID:22303098

    This paper extends research by Batten and Ellis [Econ. Lett. 72 (2001) 291] to propose a simple model of scale-adjusted volatility which measures the extent to which the Gaussian scaling law mis-estimates long-horizon volatility. Applied to the Dow Jones industrial average, the results of our model show a dramatic improvement over the Gaussian scaling law in predicting long-horizon volatility. Our model provides a general framework for estimating scaled volatility that may be also applied to other fields of study where the Hurst exponent is commonly used.

  6. The Jones dressing cast for safe aftercare of foot and ankle surgery. A modification of the Jones dressing bandage.

    PubMed

    Gottlieb, Tonio; Klaue, Kaj

    2013-12-01

    Aftercare of surgical procedures is not consensual in the community of foot and ankle surgeons. Although the incidence of infections following foot and ankle surgery is rare, soft tissue healing might be jeopardized after extensive and multiple approaches. We define a precise fixation technique of the foot and ankle in the immediate post-operative phase by what we call "the Jones dressing cast". This technique is a modification of the Jones dressing bandage. We compared two groups of patients (20 and 23 patients) who underwent similar operative reconstructive procedures, with and without the application of the described cast, respectively, for one week. At the two-month follow-up, we observed that the group, which was treated with the cast required less analgetics, had a reduced hospitalization time and achieved faster autonomy using crutches. It may be assumed that reduced strain to the soft tissue around the foot due to the cast may reduce the complications in the post-operative period. PMID:24095234

  7. The BQP-hardness of approximating the Jones polynomial

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Aharonov, Dorit; Arad, Itai

    2011-03-01

    A celebrated important result due to Freedman et al (2002 Commun. Math. Phys. 227 605-22) states that providing additive approximations of the Jones polynomial at the kth root of unity, for constant k=5 and k>=7, is BQP-hard. Together with the algorithmic results of Aharonov et al (2005) and Freedman et al (2002 Commun. Math. Phys. 227 587-603), this gives perhaps the most natural BQP-complete problem known today and motivates further study of the topic. In this paper, we focus on the universality proof; we extend the result of Freedman et al (2002) to ks that grow polynomially with the number of strands and crossings in the link, thus extending the BQP-hardness of Jones polynomial approximations to all values to which the AJL algorithm applies (Aharonov et al 2005), proving that for all those values, the problems are BQP-complete. As a side benefit, we derive a fairly elementary proof of the Freedman et al density result, without referring to advanced results from Lie algebra representation theory, making this important result accessible to a wider audience in the computer science research community. We make use of two general lemmas we prove, the bridge lemma and the decoupling lemma, which provide tools for establishing the density of subgroups in SU(n). Those tools seem to be of independent interest in more general contexts of proving the quantum universality. Our result also implies a completely classical statement, that the multiplicative approximations of the Jones polynomial, at exactly the same values, are #P-hard, via a recent result due to Kuperberg (2009 arXiv:0908.0512). Since the first publication of those results in their preliminary form (Aharonov and Arad 2006 arXiv:quant-ph/0605181), the methods we present here have been used in several other contexts (Aharonov and Arad 2007 arXiv:quant-ph/0702008; Peter and Stephen 2008 Quantum Inf. Comput. 8 681). The present paper is an improved and extended version of the results presented by Aharonov and Arad

  8. The Double Jones Birefringence in Magneto-electric Medium

    Mahmood, Waqas; Zhao, Qing

    2015-01-01

    In this paper, the Maxwell’s equations for a tensorial magneto-electric (ME) medium are solved, which is an extension to the work on the uniaxial anisotropic nonmagnetic medium. The coefficients of the dielectric permittivity, magnetic permeability, and of the magneto-electric effect are considered as tensors. The polarization is shown lying in the plane of two perpendicular independent vectors, and the relationship for the transverse polarization is given. The propagation of an electromagnetic wave through a ME medium gives rise to double Jones birefringence. Besides, the condition for an independent phenomenon of D’yakonov surface wave in a magneto-isotropic but with magneto-electric medium is given, which is measurable experimentally when the incident angle is . Lastly, it is shown that the parameter for the magneto-electric effect plays a role in the damping of the wave. PMID:26354609

    PubMed

    2015-07-14

    It was recently shown that vapor-liquid coexistence densities derived from Mie and Yukawa models collapse to define a single master curve when represented against the difference between the reduced second virial coefficient at the corresponding temperature and that at the critical point. In this work, we further test this proposal for another generalization of the Lennard-Jones pair potential. This is carried out for vapor-liquid coexistence densities, surface tension, and vapor pressure, along a temperature window set below the critical point. For this purpose, we perform molecular dynamics simulations by varying the potential softness parameter to produce from very short to intermediate attractive ranges. We observed all properties to collapse and yield master curves. Moreover, the vapor-liquid curve is found to share the exact shape of the Mie and attractive Yukawa. Furthermore, the surface tension and the logarithm of the vapor pressure are linear functions of this difference of reduced second virial coefficients. PMID:26178115

  10. Lennard-Jones fluid-fluid interfaces under shear

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Galliero, Guillaume

    2010-05-01

    Using nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulations on simple Lennard-Jones binary mixtures, we have studied the behavior of planar fluid-fluid interfaces undergoing shear flow. When the miscibility is low enough, a slip together with a partial depletion have been noticed at the interface between the two fluid phases. The slip length can reach a value equal to some molecular diameters and the corresponding interfacial viscosity can be two times smaller than the value in the bulk. It is shown how the omission of this slip may lead to flow-rate misevaluation when dealing with a multiphase flow in a nanoporous medium even for non polymer fluids. In addition, using the simulation results, a simple relation between interfacial tension and interfacial viscosity is proposed for the monoatomic systems studied in this work. Finally, it is shown that the interfacial viscosity cannot be fully accounted for by estimating the local viscosity deduced from the local thermodynamic properties of the interface.

    The fundamental concept in physics of polarization propagation of electromagnetic waves is newly understood to be a cardinal keyword in quantum cryptography transport technology and the Standard Model. Interactive visualization of the propagation mechanism of polarized electromagnetism in a medium with its helicity has received attention recently from scientists in the age of information and communication. This study presents a new dynamic polarization platform that presents the polarization modes of a transverse electromagnetic wave by using Jones vectors calculations in the symbolic program Mathematica to convert the state of polarization through the arrangement of the optical elements. The platform simulates a propagation process that satisfies Maxwell's two vector equations precisely with the vectorial nature of the electromagnetic wave.

    The First World War was a very harsh conflict and statistics recorded a great number of victims, both soldiers and civilians. One hundred years later, the whole world is commemorating the Great War by celebrating people and events that contributed to shaping the XX century. Beyond remembering political figures, war heroes or even famous battles, it is also important to underline the contribution of those who devoted their efforts to improve the living conditions during war campaigns. This is the case of Sir Robert Jones, one of the fathers of XX century orthopaedics, who contributed to re-organize the military medical assistance during war times and whose teachings, coming directly from his "on the field" experience, inspired an entire generation of European surgeons.

  13. The Lennard-Jones melting line and isomorphism

    2015-12-01

    The location of the melting line (ML) of the Lennard-Jones (LJ) system and its associated physical properties are investigated using molecular dynamics computer simulation. The radial distribution function and the behavior of the repulsive and attractive parts of the potential energy indicate that the ML is not a single isomorph, but the isomorphic state evolves gradually with temperature, i.e., it is only "locally isomorphic." The state point dependence of the unitless isomorphic number, X ˜ , for a range of static and dynamical properties of the LJ system in the solid and fluid states, and for fluid argon, are also reported. The quantity X ˜ typically varies most with state point in the vicinity of the triple point and approaches a plateau in the high density (temperature) limit along the ML.

    We have developed a coarse-grained description of the phase behavior of the isolated 38-atom Lennard-Jones cluster (LJ{sub 38}). The model captures both the solid-solid polymorphic transitions at low temperatures and the complex cluster breakup and melting transitions at higher temperatures. For this coarse model development, we employ the manifold learning technique of diffusion mapping. The outcome of the diffusion mapping analysis over a broad temperature range indicates that two order parameters are sufficient to describe the cluster's phase behavior; we have chosen two such appropriate order parameters that are metrics of condensation and overall crystallinity. In this well-justified coarse-variable space, we calculate the cluster's free energy landscape (FEL) as a function of temperature, employing Monte Carlo umbrella sampling. These FELs are used to quantify the phase behavior and onsets of phase transitions of the LJ{sub 38} cluster.

    An empirical equation of state correlation is proposed for the Lennard-Jones model fluid. The equation in terms of the Helmholtz energy is based on a large molecular simulation data set and thermal virial coefficients. The underlying data set consists of directly simulated residual Helmholtz energy derivatives with respect to temperature and density in the canonical ensemble. Using these data introduces a new methodology for developing equations of state from molecular simulation. The correlation is valid for temperatures 0.5 < T/Tc < 7 and pressures up to p/pc = 500. Extensive comparisons to simulation data from the literature are made. The accuracy and extrapolation behavior are better than for existing equations of state.

    Crystallisation of liquid solutions is of uttermost importance in a wide variety of processes in materials, atmospheric and food science. Depending on the type and concentration of solutes the freezing point shifts, thus allowing control on the thermodynamics of complex fluids. Here we investigate the basic principles of solute-induced freezing point depression by computing the melting temperature of a Lennard-Jones fluid with low concentrations of solutes, by means of equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations. The effect of solvophilic and weakly solvophobic solutes at low concentrations is analysed, scanning systematically the size and the concentration. We identify the range of parameters that produce deviations from the linear dependence of the freezing point on the molal concentration of solutes, expected for ideal solutions. Our simulations allow us also to link the shifts in coexistence temperature to the microscopic structure of the solutions.

    The first two orders of bridge diagrams for the f-bond expansion and the h-bond expansion are calculated for a binary mixture of Lennard-Jones spheres. The method used follows the Legendre polynomial integration methods outlined in the first two papers of this series. As for the pure fluid cases, the thermodynamic results which follow from these methods are found to be in reasonable agreement with the simulation result. Analysis of the thermodynamic and structural results in comparison to the best current bridge function approximations indicate that accurate descriptions of higher order mixtures will require methods beyond the current mean field treatments which are of utility in simple fluids. The methods given are unfortunately not computationally convenient at highest order; however, the lower order diagrams are both accessible and give reasonable numerical results.

    Water confined by the presence of a 'sea' of inert obstacles was examined. In the article, freely mobile two-dimensional Mercedes-Benz (MB) water put to a disordered, but fixed, matrix of Lennard-Jones disks was studied by the Monte Carlo computer simulations. For the MB water molecules in the matrix of Lennard-Jones disks, we explored the structures, hydrogen-bond-network formation and thermodynamics as a function of temperature and size and density of matrix particles. We found that the structure of model water is perturbed by the presence of the obstacles. Density of confined water, which was in equilibrium with the bulk water, was smaller than the density of the bulk water and the temperature dependence of the density of absorbed water did not show the density anomaly in the studied temperature range. The behaviour observed as a consequence of confinement is similar to that of increasing temperature, which can for a matrix lead to a process similar to capillary evaporation. At the same occupancy of space, smaller matrix molecules cause higher destruction effect on the absorbed water molecules than the bigger ones. We have also tested the hypothesis that at low matrix densities the obstacles induce an increased ordering and 'hydrogen bonding' of the MB model molecules, relative to pure fluid, while at high densities the obstacles reduce MB water structuring, as they prevent the fluid to form good 'hydrogen-bonding' networks. However, for the size of matrix molecules similar to that of water, we did not observe this effect.

    In the final Jones criteria, different diagnostic criteria were established for the diagnosis of acute rheumatic fever for low risk and moderate-high risk populations. Turkey was found to be compatible with moderate-high risk populations as a result of regional screenings performed in terms of acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease. The changes in the diagnostic criteria for low-risk populations include subclinical carditis found on echocardiogram as a major criterion in addition to carditis found clinically and a body temperature of 38.5°C and above as a minor criterion. In moderate-high risk populations including Turkey, subclinical carditis found on echocardiogram in addition to clinical carditis is used as a major criterion as a new amendment. In addition, aseptic monoarthritis and polyarthralgia are used as major criteria in addition to migratory arthritis and monoarhtralgia is used as a minor criterion among joint findings. However, differentiation of subclinical carditis from physiological valve regurgitation found in healthy individuals and exclusion of other diseases involving joints when aseptic monoarthritis and polyarthralgia are used as major criteria are very important. In addition, a body temperature of 38°C and above and an erythrocyte sedimentation rate of 30 mm/h and above have been accepted as minor criteria. The diagnostic criteria for the first attack have not been changed; three minor findings have been accepted in presence of previous sterptococcal infection in addition to the old cirteria for recurrent attacks. In the final Jones criteria, it has been recommended that patients who do not fully meet the diagnostic criteria of acute rheumatic fever should be treated as acute rheumatic fever if another diagnosis is not considered and should be followed up with benzathine penicilin prophylaxis for 12 months.

    We carry out a statistical characterization of Jones matrix eigenvalues and eigenmodes to gain deeper insight into recently proposed fiber models based on Jones matrix spectral decomposition. A set of linear dynamic equations for the Pauli coordinates of the Jones matrix is established. Using stochastic calculus, we determine the joint distribution of the retardation angle of the eigenmodes and, indirectly, their autocorrelation function. The correlation bandwidth of the eigenmodes is found to be radical2/3 that of the polarization mode dispersion vector. The results agree well with simulations performed with the standard retarded plate model. PMID:18040416

    Three-stage pseudo-supercritical transformation path and multiple-histogram reweighting technique are employed for the determination of solid-liquid coexistence of the Lennard-Jones (12-6) fluid, in a structureless cylindrical pore of radius, R, ranging from 4 to 20 molecular diameters. The Gibbs free energy difference is evaluated using thermodynamic integration method by connecting solid and liquid phases under confinement via one or more intermediate states without any first order phase transition among them. The thermodynamic melting temperature, T{sub m}, is found to oscillate for pore size, R < 8, which is in agreement with the behavior observed for the melting temperature in slit pores. However, T{sub m} for almost all pore sizes is less than the bulk case, which is contrary to the behavior seen for the slit pore. The oscillation in T{sub m} decays at around pore radius R = 8, and beyond that shift in the melting temperature with respect to the bulk case is in line with the prediction of the Gibbs-Thomson equation.

    The method of equilibrium molecular dynamics with the use of the Green-Kubo formalism has been used to calculate the thermal conductivity λ in stable and metastable regions of a Lennard-Jones fluid. Calculations have been made in the range of reduced temperatures 0.4 ≤ T* = k(b)T/ε ≤ 2.0 and densities 0.01 ≤ ρ* = ρσ³ ≤ 1.2 on 15 isotherms for 234 states, 130 of which refer to metastable regions: superheated and supercooled liquids, supersaturated vapor. Equations have been built up which describe the dependence of the regular part of the thermal conductivity on temperature and density, and also on temperature and pressure. It has been found that in (p, T) variables in the region of a liquid-gas phase transition a family of lines of constant value of excess thermal conductivity Δλ = λ - λ0, where λ0 is the thermal conductivity of a dilute gas, has an envelope which coincides with the spinodal. Thus, at the approach to the spinodal of a superheated liquid and supersaturated vapor (∂Δλ/∂p)T → ∞, (∂Δλ/∂T)p → ∞. PMID:24908025

A thermally induced distortion in the chirped-pulse amplification process is shown by the solution of the differential Jones matrix.

  11. Energy landscapes of quantum Lennard-Jones solids.

    2011-06-30

    To generalize inherent structure analysis to understand structural changes in quantum liquids and solids, differences between classical (V(x)) and quantum-corrected (U(qeff)(x)) energy landscapes are estimated as a function of the de Boer parameter (Λ). Path integral simulations of quantum Lennard-Jones solids are performed at zero pressure and a dimensionless reduced temperature of 0.123, corresponding to an absolute temperature of 4.2K. At constant temperature and pressure, Λ is increased from the classical limit of zero to Λ = 0.28, corresponding to para-H(2). Increasing quantum delocalization effects result in a continuous decrease in density and local order but without a transition to a disordered, liquid state. The inherent structure landscape of bulk systems is strongly dependent on density with the energy and stability of crystalline minima decreasing relative to that of amorphous packing minima as the system is stretched. For Λ ≈ 0.23, the volume fluctuations in quantum solids are sufficient to result in sampling of disordered minima while for Λ = 0.28, the underlying classical inherent structures are completely disordered, indicating that the topography of U(qeff)(x) and V(x) are qualitatively different for such values of Λ. To assess the nature of the quantum-corrected energy landscape, effective pair potentials are defined by u(qeff)(r) = -kT ln g(r) using the pair correlation function (g(r)) of the quantum system in the neighborhood of the first peak. Our results show that as Λ increases, the pair potentials become increasingly softer, shallower, and of increasing range with a shifting of the potential minimum to larger distances. For example, the reduction of the entropy of fusion and melting temperatures of quantum solids with increasing Λ are analogous to the changes in thermodynamics of melting seen in classical solids with increasing range and softness of interactions. The energy landscapes associated with such coarse-grained potentials

    1999-06-01

    Solid-liquid phase diagrams are calculated for binary mixtures of Lennard-Jones spheres using Monte Carlo simulation and the Gibbs-Duhem integration technique of Kofke. We calculate solid-liquid phase diagrams for the model Lennard-Jones mixtures: argon-methane, krypton-methane, and argon-krypton, and compare our simulation results with experimental data and with Cottin and Monson's recent cell theory predictions. The Lennard-Jones model simulation results and the cell theory predictions show qualitative agreement with the experimental phase diagrams. One of the mixtures, argon-krypton, has a different phase diagram than its hard-sphere counterpart, suggesting that attractive interactions are an important consideration in determining solid-liquid phase behavior. We then systematically explore Lennard-Jones parameter space to investigate how solid-liquid phase diagrams change as a function of the Lennard-Jones diameter ratio, σ11/σ22, and well-depth ratio, ɛ11/ɛ22. This culminates in an estimate of the boundaries separating the regions of solid solution, azeotrope, and eutectic solid-liquid phase behavior in the space spanned by σ11/σ22 and ɛ11/ɛ22 for the case σ11/σ22<0.85.

    Objective The aim of this study was to cephalometrically assess the skeletal and dentoalveolar effects of Class II malocclusion treatment performed with the Jones Jig appliance followed by fixed appliances. Methods The sample comprised 25 patients with Class II malocclusion treated with the Jones Jig appliance followed by fixed appliances, at a mean initial age of 12.90 years old. The mean time of the entire orthodontic treatment was 3.89 years. The distalization phase lasted for 0.85 years, after which the fixed appliance was used for 3.04 years. Cephalograms were used at initial (T1), post-distalization (T2) and final phases of treatment (T3). For intragroup comparison of the three phases evaluated, dependent ANOVA and Tukey tests were used. Results Jones Jig appliance did not interfere in the maxillary and mandibular component and did not change maxillomandibular relationship. Jones Jig appliance promoted distalization of first molars with anchorage loss, mesialization and significant extrusion of first and second premolars, as well as a significant increase in anterior face height at the end of treatment. The majority of adverse effects that occur during intraoral distalization are subsequently corrected during corrective mechanics. Buccal inclination and protrusion of mandibular incisors were identified. By the end of treatment, correction of overjet and overbite was observed. Conclusions Jones Jig appliance promoted distalization of first molars with anchorage loss represented by significant mesial movement and extrusion of first and second premolars, in addition to a significant increase in anterior face height.

    2014-10-28

    An extensive characterization of the low temperature phase diagram of particles interacting with power law or Lennard-Jones potentials is provided from Lattice Dynamical Theory. For power law systems, only two lattice structures are stable for certain values of the exponent (or softness) (A15, body centered cube (bcc)) and two more (face centered cubic (fcc), hexagonal close packed (hcp)) are always stable. Among them, only the fcc and bcc are equilibrium states. For Lennard-Jones systems, the equilibrium states are either hcp or fcc, with a coexistence curve in pressure and temperature that shows reentrant behavior. The hcp solid never coexists with the liquid. In all cases analyzed, for both power law and Lennard-Jones potentials, the fcc crystal has higher entropy than the hcp. The role of anharmonic terms is thoroughly analyzed and a general thermodynamic integration to account for them is proposed.

    2007-01-01

    Three kinetic theories of transport are investigated for the single-species Lennard-Jones model fluid. Transport coefficients, including diffusion, shear, and bulk viscosity, are calculated from these theories for the Lennard-Jones fluid across the fluid regions of the phase diagram. The results are systematically compared against simulation. It is found that for each transport property considered, there is at least one theoretical result based on approximations that have been systematically derived from a first-principles starting point that is quantitatively useful over a wide range of densities and temperatures. To the authors' knowledge, this article constitutes the first such compendium of results for the Lennard-Jones model fluid that has been assembled.

    Examination of the mood and performance relationship in sport has been an important line of investigation in sport psychology for over 20 years. Recent research has challenged the notion that the Profile of Mood States is the instrument of choice. It has also moved away from the notion that successful performance is associated with an 'iceberg' profile (Morgan, 1980), arguing that researchers should consider mood and emotion as distinguishable constructs (Jones, Mace, & Williams, 2000; Lane & Terry, 2000.

    2016-01-01

    Objectives: Fractures of the proximal metaphysis of the fifth metatarsal (i.e., Jones fractures) are common in the athletic population and frequently require surgical fixation to optimize healing rates and return to sport. Subtle hindfoot varus alignment, which likely results in greater forces at the fifth metatarsal, has been associated with increased risk of Jones fractures due to presumed increase in forces on the lateral foot. The goal of the present study was to dynamically assess plantar pressure loads at the fifth metatarsal in elite athletes with a history of Jones fracture. We hypothesize that athletes who have suffered Jones fractures will apply significantly higher loads at the fifth metatarsal base during athletic activities compared to matched uninjured athletes. Methods: Sixteen elite, competitive athletes were recruited to participate. Eight athletes had a history of Jones fracture and eight age, gender and position-matched athletes without a history of foot injury were recruited as controls. While wearing calibrated, wireless pressure mapping insoles, all athletes performed a standardized series of athletic movements including walking, running and cutting. Tests were repeated with the patient’s standard corrective insole. Peak pressure, mean pressure, maximum force, and force-time integral (i.e., impulse) were recorded for each activity. Comparison between groups was performed using a paired Wilcoxon Sign Rank test. Results: Athletes with a history of Jones fracture showed a significantly increased peak pressure (183 ±23 kPA vs. 138±7 kPA), mean pressure (124±14 kPA vs. 95±4 kPA), and maximum force (15±1.2%BW vs. 12±1.2%BW) at the fifth metatarsal base during walking and running compared to uninjured matched controls (all P<0.05). Use of the corrective orthotic insole did not significantly reduce peak or mean pressure, maximum force, or impulse at the fifth metatarsal base during running or cutting. Conclusion: Athletes with a history of

Jones matrix measurement without using active components such as electro-optic modulators is realized by incident polarization multiplexing based on independent delay of two orthogonal polarization states and polarization diversity detection. In addition to polarization sensitivity, this system measures Doppler flow without extra hardware for phase stabilized SS-OCT detection. An eighth-wave plate was measured to demonstrate the polarization detection accuracy. The optic nerve head of a retina was measured in vivo. Detailed vasculature and birefringent structures were investigated simultaneously. PMID:22660086

    Bishop, Julius A; Braun, Hillary J; Hunt, Kenneth J

    2016-01-01

    Optimal management of metadiaphyseal fifth metatarsal fractures (Jones fractures) remains controversial. Decision analysis can optimize clinical decision-making based on available evidence and patient preferences. We conducted a study to establish the determinants of decision-making and to determine the optimal treatment strategy for Jones fractures using a decision analysis model. Probabilities for potential outcomes of operative and nonoperative treatment of Jones fractures were determined from a review of the literature. Patient preferences for outcomes were obtained by questionnaire completed by 32 healthy adults with no history of foot fracture. Derived values were used in the model as a measure of utility. A decision tree was constructed, and fold-back and sensitivity analyses were performed to determine optimal treatment. Nonoperative treatment was associated with a value of 7.74, and operative treatment with an intramedullary screw was associated with a value of 7.88 given the outcome probabilities and utilities studied, making operative treatment the optimal strategy. When parameters were varied, nonoperative treatment was favored when the likelihood of healing with nonoperative treatment rose above 82% and when the probability of healing after surgery fell below 92%. In this decision analysis model, operative fixation is the preferred management strategy for Jones fractures. PMID:26991586

    2016-01-14

    The physical characterization of the singular interfacial behavior of heterogeneous fluid systems is a very important step in preliminary stages of the design process, and also in the subsequent procedures for the determination of the optimal operating conditions. Molar isopycnicity or molar density inversion is a special case of phase equilibrium behavior that directly affects the relative position of phases in heterogeneous mixtures, without being affected by gravitational fields. This work is dedicated to characterize the impact of molar density inversion on the interfacial properties of Lennard-Jones binary mixtures. The results and specific trends of the molar density inversion phenomena on the peculiar calculated composition profiles across the interface and interfacial tensions are explored by using canonical molecular dynamics simulations of the Lennard-Jones binary mixtures. Our results show that the density inversion causes drastic changes in the density profiles of the mixtures. In particular, symmetrical and equal-sized Lennard-Jones mixtures always exhibit desorption along the interfacial zone, i.e. the interfacial concentration profiles show a relative minimum at the interface of the total density profiles that increases when the dispersive energy parameter (ε(ij)) between unlike species decreases. However, as the asymmetry of the Lennard-Jones mixtures increases (σ(i) ≠ σ(j)), the concentration profiles display a relative maximum at the interface, which implies the adsorption of the total density profiles along the interfacial zone.

  1. Evaluation of anxiolytic activity of compound Valeriana jatamansi Jones in mice

    PubMed Central

    2012-01-01

    Background Compound Valeriana jatamansi Jones is a formula for treating anxiety-related diseases in the clinic, which is composed of Valeriana jatamansi Rhizoma et Radix, Ziziphi Spinosae Semen, Albiziae Cortex and Junci Medulla. The purpose of this study was to explore the anxiolytic properties of this compound in mice. Methods Male ICR mice were treated with compound Valerianae Jatamansi Jones (1.2 g/kg, 2.4 g/kg, 4.8 g/kg), saline, diazepam (2 mg/kg) orally for 10 days and then exposed to elevated maze-plus (EPM) and light–dark box (LDB). The effects of the compound on spontaneous activity were evaluated by locomotor activity test. We further investigated the mechanism of action underlying the anxiolytic-like effect of compound by pre-treating animals with antagonists of benzodiazepine (flumazenil, 3mg/kg) prior to evaluation using EPM and LDB. Results Compound Valerianae Jatamansi Jones (2.4, 4.8 g/kg, p.o.) significantly increased entries (P<0.05) into and time spent (P<0.05) on the open arms of the EPM, and number of transitions (P<0.05) and time spent (P<0.05) in the light compartment of the LDB. However, the anxiolytic-like effects of compound were significantly reduced by pre-treatment with flumazenil (P>0.05). In addition, compound Valerianae Jatamansi Jones treatment didn’t affect the spontaneous activity in mice (P> 0.05). Conclusions The present study supports the hypothesis that compound Valeriana jatamansi Jones exert anxiolytic action but no sedative effects in mice and that this effect might be mediated by benzodiazepine receptors.

  3. Optically buffered Jones-matrix-based multifunctional optical coherence tomography with polarization mode dispersion correction

    Hong, Young-Joo; Makita, Shuichi; Sugiyama, Satoshi; Yasuno, Yoshiaki

    2014-01-01

    Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) degrades the performance of Jones-matrix-based polarization-sensitive multifunctional optical coherence tomography (JM-OCT). The problem is specially acute for optically buffered JM-OCT, because the long fiber in the optical buffering module induces a large amount of PMD. This paper aims at presenting a method to correct the effect of PMD in JM-OCT. We first mathematically model the PMD in JM-OCT and then derive a method to correct the PMD. This method is a combination of simple hardware modification and subsequent software correction. The hardware modification is introduction of two polarizers which transform the PMD into global complex modulation of Jones matrix. Subsequently, the software correction demodulates the global modulation. The method is validated with an experimentally obtained point spread function with a mirror sample, as well as by in vivo measurement of a human retina. PMID:25657888

    The isothermal elastic compliances, stiffnesses, and bulk moduli of a Lennard-Jones solid organized into an fcc crystal structure (256 atoms in 43 unit cells) have been calculated as a function of testing temperature (expressed as the mean kinetic energy per atom). Tests conducted in pure shear were used to determine S44 and C44=G100, where 100 refers to crystallographic directions. Tests imposing axial elongation with fixed lateral dimensions established C11 and C12. Axial deformation with zero lateral pressure (a tension test) was used to determine S11, S12, E100 and ν100. This provided an independent set of results for comparison with the dilatational stiffnesses C11 and C12. The bulk modulus K was obtained by independent triaxial tension testing. The stiffnesses, compliances, and moduli were determined by regression analysis and digital filtering applied to combinations of the stress-tensor and strain-tensor data stored at each iteration during the constant-rate deformation experiments. While the cubic fcc Lennard-Jones solid expectedly obeys the Cauchy relations for central-force potentials, it is not isotropic, allowing ν to take on values other than 1/4 as originally proposed by Poisson. The present calculations show ν100=0.347 for the fcc Lennard-Jones solid with a Young's modulus of E100=61.1ɛ/σ3, an initial (as indicated by superscript 0) shear modulus of G0100=57.2ɛ/σ3, and an initial bulk modulus of K0=71.2ɛ/σ3 at zero temperature. The moduli all decreased with increasing temperature. Reuss, Voigt, and Hashin and Shtrikman [J. Mech. Phys. Solids 10, 335 (1962)] bounds on the isotropic elastic properties of polycrystalline aggregates of Lennard-Jones material were also determined. Computed values of the moduli are in reasonable agreement with experimental results for solid argon and crystalline polyethylene.

  7. Bence Jones proteins: Powerful tool for fundamental study of protein chemistry and pathophysiology

    Bence Jones proteins are typically found in patients with monoclonal plasma cell or related B-cell immunoproliferative disorders. Because of their monoclonal origin and resulting chemical homogeneity much of the fundamental information on immunoglobulin structure came initially from their analysis. Amino acid analyses of these components revealed an N-terminal variable (V) and C-terminal constant (C) domain as well as the existence within the V domain of hypervariable segments that account for the specificity and diversity of antibodies. Over the past three decades, the primary structures of hundreds of light chains (complete and partial), from human and other sources, have been determined, aligned, and archived. Bence Jones proteins and V{sub L} dimers were the crystallizable homogeneous proteins which provided much of the early three-dimensional conformational data that helped explain the structural basis of antibody function. Remarkably, a single Bence Jones protein in two solvent systems (low and high ionic strength) exhibited significant differences in the interactions of the two monomeric subunits comprising the dimer, resulting in substantial variation in the structure of the antigen combining site under the two solution conditions. This observation led to a prediction that heterogeneity of domain interactions may contribute to antibody-antigen interactions. Experimental support for this hypothesis has come from comparisons of the detailed structures of antibody-antigen complexes. The interactions at the interface of the V{sub L} dimer are a function of primary structure and solution conditions. Study of these interactions has led to new information on the relationship between protein structure and function and, as discussed below, can account for specific pathophysiological properties associated with Bence Jones proteins.

    In this paper we analyzed different measures, characterizing the melting of Lennard-Jones solid, and associated with the properties of both the translational and the orientational local order. It has been shown that the most sensitive indicator of melting is the cumulant of the probability distribution function over w 6 bond-order parameter. The criterion of melting based on the indicator is proposed; the criterion can be used for any solids, having fcc/hcp types of symmetry.

    The Jeans instability in self-gravitating plasma with Kappa distributed dust grains is investigated basing on assumption that the mutual interaction among dust grains is governed by Lennard-Jones potential. It is shown that the presence of additional suprathermal particles has significant effects on the range of unstable modes and growth rate of Jeans instability. Compared with Maxwellian scenario, suprathermality stabilized the Jeans instability.

    We develop computational tools for spectral analysis of stochastic networks representing energy landscapes of atomic and molecular clusters. Physical meaning and some properties of eigenvalues, left and right eigenvectors, and eigencurrents are discussed. We propose an approach to compute a collection of eigenpairs and corresponding eigencurrents describing the most important relaxation processes taking place in the system on its way to the equilibrium. It is suitable for large and complex stochastic networks where pairwise transition rates, given by the Arrhenius law, vary by orders of magnitude. The proposed methodology is applied to the network representing the Lennard-Jones-38 cluster created by Wales's group. Its energy landscape has a double funnel structure with a deep and narrow face-centered cubic funnel and a shallower and wider icosahedral funnel. However, the complete spectrum of the generator matrix of the Lennard-Jones-38 network has no appreciable spectral gap separating the eigenvalue corresponding to the escape from the icosahedral funnel. We provide a detailed description of the escape process from the icosahedral funnel using the eigencurrent and demonstrate a superexponential growth of the corresponding eigenvalue. The proposed spectral approach is compared to the methodology of the Transition Path Theory. Finally, we discuss whether the Lennard-Jones-38 cluster is metastable from the points of view of a mathematician and a chemical physicist, and make a connection with experimental works.

    A simple evaporative method in sealed capillaries was used to produce X-ray diffraction quality crystals of a monoclonal human Bence-Jones protein (Sea) in microgravity and at unit gravity. The λ isotypic Bence-Jones protein was purified from the urine of a multiple myeloma patient using ammonium sulfate precipitation, dialysis and cation exchange, followed by gel filtration. Crystals were produced in glass capillaries where water evaporated from the protein solution was absorbed by one or two suitable absorbents. A crystal grown during the 9-day Space Shuttle STS-95 flight measured 8×1.6×1 mm. It was subjected to X-ray diffraction and was found to be orthorhombic ( P2 12 12 1), with unit-cell dimensions of 48.9, 85.2 and 114.0 Å. X-ray data were collected at room temperature and were 98.3% complete to 2.3 Å resolution. Crystals of the same Bence-Jones protein measuring 1.2-2 mm in length were grown in ground-based controls using a high evaporation rate for the first 12 h, followed by a slower evaporation rate for the remainder of the 19-day growth period.

  13. Scaling of the dynamics of flexible Lennard-Jones chains: Effects of harmonic bonds

    2015-11-01

    The previous paper [A. A. Veldhorst et al., J. Chem. Phys. 141, 054904 (2014)] demonstrated that the isomorph theory explains the scaling properties of a liquid of flexible chains consisting of ten Lennard-Jones particles connected by rigid bonds. We here investigate the same model with harmonic bonds. The introduction of harmonic bonds almost completely destroys the correlations in the equilibrium fluctuations of the potential energy and the virial. According to the isomorph theory, if these correlations are strong a system has isomorphs, curves in the phase diagram along which structure, dynamics, and the excess entropy are invariant. The Lennard-Jones chain liquid with harmonic bonds does have curves in the phase diagram along which the structure and dynamics are invariant. The excess entropy is not invariant on these curves, which we refer to as "pseudoisomorphs." In particular, this means that Rosenfeld's excess-entropy scaling (the dynamics being a function of excess entropy only) does not apply for the Lennard-Jones chain with harmonic bonds.

    An advanced version of Jones matrix optical coherence tomography (JMT) is demonstrated for Doppler and polarization sensitive imaging of the posterior eye. JMT is capable of providing localized flow tomography by Doppler detection and investigating the birefringence property of tissue through a three-dimensional (3-D) Jones matrix measurement. Owing to an incident polarization multiplexing scheme based on passive optical components, this system is stable, safe in a clinical environment, and cost effective. Since the properties of this version of JMT provide intrinsic compensation for system imperfection, the system is easy to calibrate. Compared with the previous version of JMT, this advanced JMT achieves a sufficiently long depth measurement range for clinical cases of posterior eye disease. Furthermore, a fine spectral shift compensation method based on the cross-correlation of calibration signals was devised for stabilizing the phase of OCT, which enables a high sensitivity Doppler OCT measurement. In addition, a new theory of JMT which integrates the Jones matrix measurement, Doppler measurement, and scattering measurement is presented. This theory enables a sensitivity-enhanced scattering OCT and high-sensitivity Doppler OCT. These new features enable the application of this system to clinical cases. A healthy subject and a geographic atrophy patient were measured in vivo, and simultaneous imaging of choroidal vasculature and birefringence structures are demonstrated. PMID:23938857

  15. Connection of Jones and Mueller Tensors in Second Harmonic Generation and Multi-Photon Fluorescence Measurements.

    PubMed

    Simpson, Garth J

    2016-04-01

    Despite the rapidly growing use of second harmonic generation (SHG) and two-photon excited fluorescence (TPEF) microscopy, opportunities for relating polarization-dependent measurements back to local structure and molecular orientation are often confounded by losses in polarization purity. In this work, connections linking Mueller tensor and Jones tensor descriptions of polarization-dependent SHG and TPEF are shown to substantially simplify partially depolarized microscopy measurements. These connections were facilitated by the derivation of several new tensor identity relations, based on generalization of established transformations of matrices and vectors. Methods are described for integrating local-frame symmetry and azimuthal rotation angle for simplifying the Mueller tensor. Through simple expressions bridging the Mueller and Jones formalisms, mathematical models for partial depolarization can greatly simplify interpretation of SHG and TPEF measurements to reconstruct the more general Mueller tensors using the much more concise Jones descriptions for the purely polarized components. Integrating the Mueller architecture allows polarization-dependent SHG and TPEF measurements to be connected back to a relatively small set of free parameters related to local structure and orientation.

    We present measurements of the full Jones matrix of individual pixels in a liquid-crystal display (LCD) panel. Employing a polarization-sensitive digital holographic microscopy based on Mach-Zehnder interferometry, the complex amplitudes of the light passing through individual LCD pixels are precisely measured with respect to orthogonal bases of polarization states, from which the full Jones matrix components of individual pixels are obtained. We also measure the changes in the Jones matrix of individual LCD pixels with respect to an applied bias. In addition, the complex optical responses of a LCD panel with respect to arbitrary polarization states of incident light were characterized from the measured Jones matrix. PMID:25322005

    Optical spectroscopies are most often used to probe dynamical correlations in materials, but they are also a probe of symmetry. Polarization anisotropies are of course sensitive to structural anisotropies, but have been much less used as a probe of more exotic symmetry breakings in ordered states. In this paper, a Jones transfer matrix formalism is discussed to infer the existence of exotic broken symmetry states of matter from their electrodynamic response for a full complement of possible broken symmetries including reflection, rotation, rotation reflection, inversion, and time reversal. A specific condition to distinguish the case of macroscopic time-reversal symmetry breaking is particularly important as in a dynamical experiment like optics, one must distinguish reciprocity from time-reversal symmetry as dissipation violates strict time-reversal symmetry of an experiment. Different forms of reciprocity can be distinguished, but only one is a sufficient (but not necessary) condition for macroscopic time-reversal symmetry breaking. I show the constraints that a Jones matrix develops under the presence or absence of such symmetries. These constraints typically appear in the form of an algebra relating matrix elements or overall constraints (transposition, unitarity, hermiticity, normality, etc.) on the form of the Jones matrix. I work out a number of examples including the trivial case of a ferromagnet and the less trivial cases of magnetoelectrics and vector and scalar spin "chiral" states. I show that the formalism can be used to demonstrate that Kerr rotation must be absent in time-reversal symmetric chiral materials. The formalism here is discussed with an eye towards its use in time-domain terahetrz spectroscopy in transmission, but with small modifications it is more generally applicable.

    Objectives To compare the diagnostic yield of acute rheumatic fever (ARF) by the American Heart Association/ American College of Cardiology (AHA/ACC) 2015 revised Jones criteria with the WHO 2004 and Australian guidelines 2012. Methods Retrospective observational study in 93 cases of suspected ARF admitted to the Division of Paediatric Cardiology between January 2012 and December 2014. WHO 2004, Australian guidelines and AHA/ACC 2015 Jones criteria were applied to assess definite and probable ARF. Results Of the 93 cases, 50 were diagnosed as the first episode of ARF and 43 as a recurrence of the condition. Subclinical carditis was a predominant presentation (38%) in the first episode group (p<0.01) whereas in the recurrence group carditis (88%) was the main presentation (p<0.01). Among the joint manifestations, the majority of patients in both the first episode group and the recurrence group presented with arthralgia. Of all the patients with suspected ARF (50), 34% of cases did not fulfil the standard Jones criteria 2004; however, 86% qualified as having ARF on applying the Australian and AHA/ACC 2015 criteria. Surprisingly in the recurrence group only 67% of the patients fulfilled AHA/ACC 2015 despite the modifications incorporated beyond WHO 2004; however, all the patients fulfilled the Australian guidelines either as definite (88.4%) or probable (11.6%). Inclusion of subclinical carditis, polyarthralgia and monoarthritis as major criteria influenced the diagnosis to definite ARF in 20%, 10% and 4% of patients, respectively. Conclusions The clinical manifestations of ARF, comprising subclinical carditis and arthralgia, are possibly milder in the Indian population; hence, inclusion of subclinical carditis, polyarthralgia and monoarthritis as major criteria in the newer guidelines has improved the diagnostic yield of ARF. In the absence of a gold standard for the diagnosis of ARF, it is not possible to comment on sensitivity and specificity. PMID:27326228

    Solutions to both the diffeomorphism and the hamiltonian constraint of quantum gravity have been found in the loop representation, which is based on Ashtekar's new variables. While the diffeomorphism constraint is easily solved by considering loop functionals which are knot invariants, there remains the puzzle why several of the known knot invariants are also solutions to the hamiltonian constraint. We show how the Jones polynomial gives rise to an infinite set of solutions to all the constraints of quantum gravity thereby illuminating the structure of the space of solutions and suggesting the existence of a deep connection between quantum gravity and knot theory at a dynamical level.

The larvae were diagnosed as Ornithodoros, and further comparative analysis showed them to be Ornithodoros peruvianus Kohls, Clifford & Jones or a species close to it. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S mitochondrial rRNA gene sequences of Ornithodoros species plus four Argas species was carried out to clarify the taxonomic position of the larvae. This is the first finding of ticks parasitizing D. rotundus in Chile. PMID:23950013

    Sulfuric acid solutions of titanous and chromous sulfates, obtained by passage through the Jones reductor, are oxidized by aeration for from 5 to 10 minutes in the presence of a trace of copper sulfate as a catalyst. Ferrous sulfate is essentially unoxidized and is titrated with permanganate after aeration. Best results are obtained by using 0.0003 millimole of copper sulfate in about 300 ml. of solution. Larger quantities of copper sulfate lead to slightly low results when both chromium and titanium are present.

    We carried out a cross-sectional study in 51 patients (81 feet) with a clawed hallux in association with a cavus foot after a modified Robert Jones tendon transfer. The mean follow-up was 42 months (9 to 88). In all feet, concomitant procedures had been undertaken, such as extension osteotomy of the first metatarsal and transfer of the tendon of the peroneus longus to peroneus brevis, to correct the underlying foot deformity. All patients were evaluated clinically and radiologically. The overall rate of patient satisfaction was 86%. The deformity of the hallux was corrected in 80 feet. Catching of the big toe when walking barefoot, transfer lesions and metatarsalgia, hallux flexus, hallux limitus and asymptomatic nonunion of the interphalangeal joint were the most frequent complications. Hallux limitus was more likely when elevation of the first ray occurred (p = 0.012). Additional transfer of the tendon of peroneus longus to peroneus brevis was a significant risk factor for elevation of the first metatarsal (p < 0.0001). The deforming force of extensor hallucis longus is effectively eliminated by the Jones transfer, but the mechanics of the first metatarsophalangeal joint are altered. The muscle balance and stability of the entire first ray should be taken into consideration in the management of clawed hallux. PMID:10755436

    Crystallisation pathways are explored by direct analysis of the potential energy landscape for a system of Lennard-Jones particles with periodic boundary conditions. A database of minima and transition states linking liquid and crystalline states is constructed using discrete path sampling and the entire potential energy landscape from liquid to crystal is visualised. We demonstrate that there is a strong negative correlation between the number of atoms in the largest crystalline cluster and the potential energy. In common with previous results we find a strong bias towards the growth of FCC rather than HCP clusters, despite a very small potential energy difference. We characterise three types of perfect crystals with very similar energies: pure FCC, pure HCP, and combinations of FCC and HCP layers. There are also many slightly defective crystalline structures. The effect of the simulation box is analysed for a supercell containing 864 atoms. There are low barriers between some of the different crystalline structures via pathways involving sliding layers, and many different defective structures with FCC layers stacked at an angle to the periodic box. Finally, we compare a binary Lennard-Jones system and visualise the potential energy landscape from supercooled liquid to crystal.

    The unsteady evaporation of a thin planar liquid film is studied by molecular dynamics simulations of Lennard-Jones fluid. The obtained results are compared with the predictions of a diffuse interface model in which capillary Korteweg contributions are added to hydrodynamic equations, in order to obtain a unified description of the liquid bulk, liquid-vapor interface and vapor region. Particular care has been taken in constructing a diffuse interface model matching the thermodynamic and transport properties of the Lennard-Jones fluid. The comparison of diffuse interface model and molecular dynamics results shows that, although good agreement is obtained in equilibrium conditions, remarkable deviations of diffuse interface model predictions from the reference molecular dynamics results are observed in the simulation of liquid film evaporation. It is also observed that molecular dynamics results are in good agreement with preliminary results obtained from a composite model which describes the liquid film by a standard hydrodynamic model and the vapor by the Boltzmann equation. The two mathematical model models are connected by kinetic boundary conditions assuming unit evaporation coefficient.

This JM-OCT visualized depth-localized birefringence in addition to conventional cumulative phase retardation imaging through local Jones matrix analysis. In addition, it simultaneously provides a sensitivity enhanced scattering OCT, a quantitative polarization uniformity contrast, and OCT-based angiography. The probe beam is at 1-μm wavelength band. The measurement speed and the depth-resolution were 100,000 A-lines/s, and 6.6 μm in tissue, respectively. Normal and pathologic eyes are examined and several clinical features are revealed, which includes high birefringence in the choroid and lamina cribrosa, and birefringent layered structure of the sclera. The theoretical details of the depth-localized birefringence imaging and conventional phase retardation imaging are formulated. This formulation indicates that the birefringence imaging correctly measures a depth-localized single-trip phase retardation of a tissue, while the conventional phase retardation can provide correct single-trip phase retardation only for some specific types of samples.

    In order to better understand general effects of the size and energy disparities between macromolecules and solvent molecules in solution, especially for macromolecular constructs self-assembled from smaller molecules, we use the first- and second-order exact bridge diagram extensions of the HNC integral equation theory to investigate single-component, binary, ternary, and quaternary mixtures of Lennard-Jones fluids. For pure fluids, we find that the HNCH3 bridge function integral equation (i.e., exact to third order in density) is necessary to quantitatively predict the pure gas and pure liquid sides of the coexistence region of the phase diagram of the Lennard-Jones fluid. For the mixtures, we find that the HNCH2 bridge function integral equation is sufficient to qualitatively predict solubility in the binary, ternary, and quaternary mixtures, up to the nominal solubility limit. The results, as limiting cases, should be useful to several problems, including accurate phase diagram predictions for complex mixtures, design of self-assembling nanostructures via solvent controls, and the solvent contributions to the conformational behavior of macromolecules in complex fluids.

    The Celtic Sea is a diverse fishing ground that supports important commercial fisheries for a range of demersal fish, large and small-bodied pelagic fish and a variety of cephalopods and other shellfish. A regional overview of the main commercial fish stocks of the Celtic Sea and of the fish that occur in the vicinity of Jones Bank are provided through analyses of landings data from English and Welsh vessels, and from scientific trawl surveys. Dedicated smaller scale sampling via trawl surveys combined with baited cameras on and around the Jones Bank were also analysed to investigate the importance of sandbank habitats with attention paid to the differences in the species occurring on the top of the bank in comparison to adjacent off-bank habitats. Official landing statistics for UK (English and Welsh) vessels indicated that the predominant commercial demersal species in ICES Divisions VIIg,h (in terms of quantities landed) were anglerfish, megrim, pollack and skates (Rajidae). There were, however, regional differences in the distribution of fish and fisheries, and the area surrounding Jones Bank (ICES Rectangles 28E1 and 28E2) supports fisheries for megrim, anglerfish, skates, hake, ling and turbot, with otter trawl, gillnet and beam trawl the main gears used. Recent survey data collected with GOV (Grande Ouverture Verticale) trawl from the Celtic Sea (ICES Divisions VIIe-h, 2007-2010) were used to highlight the broad scale distribution of the main fish assemblages in the Celtic Sea. Analyses of the fish and cephalopod catches from these surveys indicated that there were four broad assemblages in the area, including (i) a region around the Cornwall (which will also be partly influenced by the necessity to use rockhopper ground gear on these rough grounds), (ii) the shallower regions of the north-western Celtic Sea (including parts of the Bristol Channel), (iii) the deeper parts of the outer shelf and (iv) the central Celtic Sea.

    The establishment of thermal diffusion in an Ar-Kr Lennard-Jones mixture is investigated via dynamical non equilibrium molecular dynamics [G. Ciccotti, G. Jacucci, Phys. Rev. Lett. 35, 789 (1975)]. We observe, in particular, the evolution of the density and temperature fields of the system following the onset of the thermal gradient. In stationary conditions, we also compute the Soret coefficient of the mixture. This study confirms that dynamical non equilibrium molecular dynamics is an effective tool to gather information on transient phenomena, even though the full evolution of the mass and energy fluxes associated to the temperature and density fields requires, in this case, a more substantial numerical effort than the one employed here.

    The gas-liquid phase transition of the three-dimensional Lennard-Jones particles system is studied by molecular dynamics simulations. The gas and liquid densities in the coexisting state are determined with high accuracy. The critical point is determined by the block density analysis of the Binder parameter with the aid of the law of rectilinear diameter. From the critical behavior of the gas-liquid coexisting density, the critical exponent of the order parameter is estimated to be β = 0.3285(7). Surface tension is estimated from interface broadening behavior due to capillary waves. From the critical behavior of the surface tension, the critical exponent of the correlation length is estimated to be ν = 0.63(4). The obtained values of β and ν are consistent with those of the Ising universality class. PMID:22667535

    Blueschist is plentiful in the Yreka-Fort Jones area, eastern Klamath Mountains, adjacent to a belt of serpentinite that marks the boundary between two fundamental lithologic units, an eastern belt of early Paleozoic sedimentary and metamorphic rocks, and a western greenstone-chert assemblage of late Paleozoic and Triassic(?) age. The blueschists, which contain lawsonite and glaucophane or crossite, occur with phyllitic quartzite and siliceous phyllite of the Stuart Fork Formation, which is overthrust northwestward on the greenstone-chert terrane. The blueschist facies metamorphism probably was synchronous with Middle and Late Jurassic metamorphism of the Stuart Fork Formation. The blueschist-serpentinite terrane possibly marks the site of collision between the eastern Klamath plate and an oceanic western Paleozoic and Triassic plate.

    John Jones was a pioneer of American Surgery. Born in Long Island, New York in 1729, he received his medical degree in France from the University of Rheims. He returned to the colonies and helped to establish the medical school that would later become Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons where he was appointed the first Professor of Surgery in the New World. He used his position to assert that surgeons trained in America should be familiar with all facets of medicine and not be mere technicians. Before the outbreak of the American Revolution, he wrote a surgical field manual, which was the first medical text published in America. A believer in the principles of the American Revolution, he would go on to count Benjamin Franklin and George Washington as his patients. Despite achieving many firsts in American medicine, his influence on surgical training is his most enduring legacy. PMID:20012608

We report the rich dynamics of vacancies in two-dimensional Lennard-Jones crystals in several thermodynamic states. Specifically, we numerically observe significantly faster diffusion of the 2-point vacancy with two missing particles in comparison with other types of vacancies; it opens the possibility of doping 2-point vacancies into atomic materials to enhance atomic migration. In addition, the resulting dislocations in the healing of a long vacancy suggest the intimate connection between vacancies and topological defects that may provide an extra dimension in the engineering of defects in extensive crystalline materials for desired properties.

    We use molecular dynamics simulation results on viscous binary Lennard-Jones mixtures to examine the correlation between the potential energy and the virial. In accord with a recent proposal [U. R. Pedersen et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 100, 015701 (2008)], the fluctuations in the two quantities are found to be strongly correlated, exhibiting a proportionality constant, Γ, numerically equal to one-third the slope of an inverse power law approximation to the intermolecular potential function. The correlation is stronger at higher densities, where interatomic separations are in the range where the inverse power law approximation is more accurate. These same liquids conform to thermodynamic scaling of their dynamics, with the scaling exponent equal to Γ. Thus, the properties of strong correlation between energy and pressure and thermodynamic scaling both reflect the ability of an inverse power law representation of the potential to capture interesting features of the dynamics of dense, highly viscous liquids.

    Molecular dynamics simulations have been used to investigate the kinetics of spontaneous cavitation and crystallization in a Lennard-Jones liquid at negative pressures in the temperature range where these processes compete with each other. The nucleation rate has been calculated in NVE and NpT ensembles by the method of mean lifetime and the transition interface sampling method with parallel path swapping. The data obtained have been used to determine in the framework of classical nucleation theory the value of the ratio of the solid-liquid and the liquid-void interfacial free energy for critical crystals and cavities and the values of their volumes at points where the cavitation rate of the liquid is equal to the rate of its crystallization.

    While the hydrophobic effect is, for many systems, one of the most relevant interactions, it may be said that in the case of biological systems this effect becomes of determinant importance. Although the matter has been analyzed extensively, certain aspects are yet to be elucidated. Hence, the study on the behavior of the hydrophobic effect with temperature, and particularly with pressure deserves further investigation; model systems may help us in the task. We have analyzed the behavior of Lennard-Jones particles in water by means of molecular dynamics simulation under different conditions of size, concentration, temperature, and pressure. Following the formation of particle aggregates we can observe an increase of the hydrophobic effect with temperature and a strong weakening of the effect at high pressures. The results agree with the experimental evidence and show the ability of molecular dynamics simulation to account for the behavior of nonpolar substances under different conditions, provided that the intermolecular interactions used are adequate.

    Development of disjoining pressure was performed to study the symmetric, Lennard-Jones (LJ) free thin films using molecular modelling. A methodology rooted from film thermodynamics was established to derive the disjoining pressure isotherm (Π ‑ h), which is based on the surface tension at varied film thicknesses and can be viewed as a post-processing technique. The results showed that the disjoining pressure of LJ fluid is purely attractive. Compared with the complicated method reported previously, this methodology is demonstrated to be more convenient and readily applicable for other liquid films (e.g. water, aqueous thin films containing electrolyte or surfactants), meanwhile it can be applied at both low and high temperatures.

    The thermodynamic and structural properties of the planar soft-sites dumbbell fluid are examined by Monte Carlo simulations and integral equation theory. The dimers are built of two Lennard-Jones segments. Site-site integral equation theory in two dimensions is used to calculate the site-site radial distribution functions for a range of elongations and densities and the results are compared with Monte Carlo simulations. The critical parameters for selected types of dimers were also estimated. We analyze the influence of the bond length on critical point as well as tested correctness of site-site integral equation theory with different closures. The integral equations can be used to predict the phase diagram of dimers whose molecular parameters are known.

    Pixel clustering algorithm tailored to multi-contrast Jones matrix based optical coherence tomography (MC-JMT) is demonstrated. This algorithm clusters multiple pixels of MC-JMT in a five-dimensional (5-D) feature space which comprises dimensions of lateral space, axial space, logarithmic scattering OCT intensity, squared power of Doppler shift and degree of polarization uniformity. This 5-D clustering provides clusters of pixels, so called as superpixels. The superpixels are utilized as local regions for pixels averaging. The averaging decreases the noise in the measurement as preserving structural details of the sample. A simple decision-tree algorithm is applied to classified superpixels into some tissue types. This classification process successfully segments tissues of a human posterior eye.

    Vacancies represent an important class of crystallographic defects, and their behaviors can be strongly coupled with relevant material properties. In this work, we study the dynamics of generic n -point vacancies in two-dimensional Lennard-Jones crystals in several thermodynamic states. Simulations reveal the spectrum of distinct, size-dependent vacancy dynamics, including the nonmonotonously varying diffusive mobilities of one-, two- and three-point vacancies, and several healing routines of linear vacancies. Specifically, we numerically observe significantly faster diffusion of the two-point vacancy that can be attributed to its rotational degree of freedom. The high mobility of the two-point vacancies opens the possibility of doping two-point vacancies into atomic materials to enhance atomic migration. The rich physics of vacancies revealed in this study may have implications in the engineering of defects in extensive crystalline materials for desired properties.

    Robles, Miguel; Mustonen, Ville; Kaski, Kimmo

    In this work the motion of a single dislocation in a two-dimensional triangular lattice is studied by using classical Molecular Dynamics method with the Lennard Jones inter-atomic potential. The dislocation motion is investigated with an interactive simulation program developed to track automatically the movement of lattice defects. Constant strain and constant strain-rate deformations were applied to the system. From constant strain simulations a curve of shear stress versus dislocation velocity is obtained, showing a nonlinear power law relation. An equation of motion for the dislocation is proposed and found to be applicable when the movement of dislocation follows a quasi-static process. Numerical simulations at different strain rates show an elastic-to-plastic transition that modifies the dynamics of the dislocation motion.

    We propose a density-functional method for calculating elastic moduli of crystalline solids. The method is based on the second-order Ramakrishnan-Yussouff (RY) expansion of the variational grand-canonical potential around a uniform liquid state. The densities of the strained and unstrained crystal are represented as sums of narrow Gaussians. We express the crystal moduli in terms of the liquid structure factor its first and second derivatives evaluated at the reciprocal-lattice points of the crystal. We evaluate the elastic moduli for fcc hard-sphere and Lennard-Jones crystals using the Percus-Yevick and computer-simulation liquid structure factors, respectively. An indirect comparison with available experimental and theoretical values shows that although our calculated moduli are accurate to an order of magnitude, higher-order terms in the RY expansion might be significant. We find important contributions from density equilibration within the strained unit cell.

We show that if the system is gradient and the potential satisfies certain non-restrictive conditions, the hierarchy of cycles has a structure of a full binary tree, and each cycle is exited via the lowest saddle adjacent to it. Exploiting this property, we propose an algorithm for computing the asymptotic zero-temperature path and building a hierarchy of Freidlin's cycles associated with the transition process between two given local equilibria. This algorithm is suitable for systems with a complex potential energy landscape with numerous minima. We apply it to find the asymptotic zero-temperature path and Freidlin's cycles involved into the transition process between the two lowest minima of the Lennard-Jones cluster of 38 atoms. D. Wales's stochastic network of minima and transition states of this cluster is used as an input.

    The thermodynamic and structural properties of the planar soft-sites dumbbell fluid are examined by Monte Carlo simulations and integral equation theory. The dimers are built of two Lennard-Jones segments. Site-site integral equation theory in two dimensions is used to calculate the site-site radial distribution functions for a range of elongations and densities and the results are compared with Monte Carlo simulations. The critical parameters for selected types of dimers were also estimated. We analyze the influence of the bond length on critical point as well as tested correctness of site-site integral equation theory with different closures. The integral equations can be used to predict the phase diagram of dimers whose molecular parameters are known. PMID:24606372

    We use Monte Carlo simulations of a Lennard-Jones fluid adsorbed on a short-range planar wall substrate to study the fluctuations in the thickness of the wetting layer, and we get a quantitative and consistent characterization of their mesoscopic Hamiltonian, H[ξ]. We have observed important finite-size effects, which were hampering the analysis of previous results obtained with smaller systems. The results presented here support an appealing simple functional form for H[ξ], close but not exactly equal to the theoretical nonlocal proposal made on the basis a generic density-functional analysis by Parry and coworkers. We have analyzed systems under different wetting conditions, as a proof of principle for a method that provides a quantitative bridge between the molecular interactions and the phenomenology of wetting films at mesoscopic scales.
