We consider linearizing transformations of the one-dimensional nonlinear stochastic differential equations driven by Wiener and compound Poisson processes, namely finite activity Levy processes. We present linearizability criteria and derive the...
We have obtained exact results for the Ising model on a hierarchical lattice incorporating three key features characterizing many real-world networks-a scale-free degree distribution, a high clustering coefficient, and the small-world effect. By...
During the last couple of decades considerable research efforts have been directed towards the synthesis and coating of iron oxide nanoparticles (IONPs) for biomedical applications. To address the current limitations, recent studies have focused on...

Protein phosphorylation is a ubiquitous posttranslational modification, which is heavily involved in signal transduction. Misregulation of protein phosphorylation is often associated with a decrease in cell viability and complex diseases such as...
Motivated by the spare parts distribution system of a major automotive manufacturer in Turkey, we consider a multicommodity distribution problem from a central depot to a number of geographically dispersed demand points. The distribution of the...
Extremely low frequency (ELF) and very low frequency (VLF) observations have formed the cornerstone of measurement and interpretation of effects of lightning discharges on the overlying upper atmospheric regions, as well as near-Earth space. ELF...
This work concerns the global minimization of a prescribed eigenvalue or a weighted sum of prescribed eigenvalues of a Hermitian matrix-valued function depending on its parameters analytically in a box. We describe how the analytical properties of...
For each positive integer Q, let F(Q) denote the Farey sequence of order Q. We prove the existence of the pair correlation measure associated to the sum F(Q) + F(Q) modulo 1, as Q tends to infinity, and compute the corresponding limiting pair...
We study the optimal auction problem with participation costs in the symmetric independent private values setting, where bidders know their valuations when they make independent participation decisions. After characterizing the optimal auction in...
We discuss pseudoduality transformations in two-dimensional conformally invariant classical sigma models, and extend our analysis to a given boundaries of world-sheet, which gives rise to an appropriate framework for the discussion of the...
We introduce a random walk in random environment associated to an underlying directed polymer model in 1 + 1 dimensions. This walk is the positive temperature counterpart of the competition interface of percolation and arises as the limit of...
Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) have received significant attention in recent years both from academia and industry since this new class of nanoporous materials has many potential advantages over traditional nanoporous materials in gas storage and...

We construct the most general physically admissible positive-definite inner product on the space of Proca fields. Up to a trivial scaling this defines a five-parameter family of Lorentz invariant inner products that we use to construct a genuine...

This paper considers the practical utility of quantum fluid dynamics (QFD) whereby the time-dependent Schrodinger's equation is transformed to observing the dynamics of an equivalent "gas continuum." The density and velocity of this equivalent gas...
Colorectal cancer metastasizes predictably, with liver predominance in most cases. Because liver involvement has been shown to be a major determinant of survival in this population, liver-directed therapies are increasingly considered even in cases...
We examine quantum statistics of optical photons emitted from atomic ensembles which are classically driven and simultaneously coupled to a two-level atom via microwave photon exchange. Quantum statistics and correlations are analyzed by...
