- Dynamical characterization of transport barriers in nontwist Hamiltonian systems. [Journal Article]
- PRPhys Rev E 2018; 97(1-1):012214
- The turnstile provides us a useful tool to describe the flux in twist Hamiltonian systems. Thus, its determination allows us to find the areas where the trajectories flux through barriers. We show th...

- Capillary network formation from dispersed endothelial cells: Influence of cell traction, cell adhesion, and extracellular matrix rigidity. [Journal Article]
- PRPhys Rev E 2018; 97(1-1):012408
- The formation of a functional vascular network depends on biological, chemical, and physical processes being extremely well coordinated. Among them, the mechanical properties of the extracellular mat...

- Spontaneous emergence of rogue waves in partially coherent waves: A quantitative experimental comparison between hydrodynamics and optics. [Journal Article]
- PRPhys Rev E 2018; 97(1-1):012208
- Rogue waves are extreme and rare fluctuations of the wave field that have been discussed in many physical systems. Their presence substantially influences the statistical properties of a partially co...

- Lee-Yang zeros and large-deviation statistics of a molecular zipper. [Journal Article]
- PRPhys Rev E 2018; 97(1-1):012115
- The complex zeros of partition functions were originally investigated by Lee and Yang to explain the behavior of condensing gases. Since then, Lee-Yang zeros have become a powerful tool to describe p...

- Model for the growth and the oscillation of a cavitation bubble in a spherical liquid-filled cavity enclosed in an elastic medium. [Journal Article]
- PRPhys Rev E 2018; 97(1-1):013108
- Equations are derived that describe the growth and subsequent damped oscillation of a cavitation bubble in a liquid-filled cavity surrounded by an elastic solid. It is assumed that the nucleation and...

- Thermal properties of vortices on curved surfaces. [Journal Article]
- PRPhys Rev E 2018; 97(1-1):012117
- We use Monte Carlo simulations to study the finite temperature behavior of vortices in the XY model for tangent vector order on curved backgrounds. Contrary to naive expectations, we show that the un...

- Temperature anisotropy at equilibrium reveals nonlocal entropic contributions to interfacial properties. [Journal Article]
- PRPhys Rev E 2018; 97(1-1):012126
- Density gradient theory for fluids has played a key role in the study of interfacial phenomena for a century. In this work, we revisit its fundamentals by examining the vapor-liquid interface of argo...

- Rolling and aging in temperature-ramp soft adhesion. [Journal Article]
- PRPhys Rev E 2018; 97(1-1):012609
- Immediately before adsorption to a horizontal substrate, sinking polymer-coated colloids can undergo a complex sequence of landing, jumping, crawling, and rolling events. Using video tracking, we stu...

- Stochastic and superharmonic stochastic resonances of a confined overdamped harmonic oscillator. [Journal Article]
- PRPhys Rev E 2018; 97(1-1):012147
- The dynamics of many soft condensed matter and biological systems is affected by space limitations, which produce some peculiar effects on the systems' stochastic resonance (SR) behavior. In this stu...

- Phase-coexisting patterns, horizontal segregation, and controlled convection in vertically vibrated binary granular mixtures. [Journal Article]
- PRPhys Rev E 2018; 97(1-1):012911
- We report patterns consisting of coexistence of synchronous and asynchronous states [for example, a granular gas co-existing with (i) bouncing bed, (ii) undulatory subharmonic waves, and (iii) Leiden...
