    • A microscopic model of the Stokes-Einstein relation in arbitrary dimension. 

      Charbonneau, Benoit; Charbonneau, Patrick; Szamel, Grzegorz (The Journal of chemical physics, 2018-06)
      The Stokes-Einstein relation (SER) is one of the most robust and widely employed results from the theory of liquids. Yet sizable deviations can be observed for self-solvation, which cannot be explained by the standard ...
    • A slicing obstruction from the $\frac {10}{8}$ theorem 

      Donald, A; Vafaee, F (Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, 2016-08-29)
      © 2016 American Mathematical Society. From Furuta’s 10/8 theorem, we derive a smooth slicing obstruction for knots in S3 using a spin 4-manifold whose boundary is 0-surgery on a knot. We show that this obstruction is able ...
    • A stochastic-Lagrangian particle system for the Navier-Stokes equations 

      Iyer, Gautam; Mattingly, Jonathan (Nonlinearity, 2008-11-01)
      This paper is based on a formulation of the Navier-Stokes equations developed by Constantin and the first author (Commun. Pure Appl. Math. at press, arXiv:math.PR/0511067), where the velocity field of a viscous incompressible ...
    • An adaptive Euler-Maruyama scheme for SDEs: Convergence and stability 

      Lamba, H; Mattingly, JC; Stuart, AM (IMA Journal of Numerical Analysis, 2007-01-01)
      The understanding of adaptive algorithms for stochastic differential equations (SDEs) is an open area, where many issues related to both convergence and stability (long-time behaviour) of algorithms are unresolved. This ...
    • An Empirical Comparison of Multiple Imputation Methods for Categorical Data 

      Akande, O; Li, F; Reiter, J (The American Statistician, 2017-04-03)
      © 2017 American Statistical Association. Multiple imputation is a common approach for dealing with missing values in statistical databases. The imputer fills in missing values with draws from predictive models estimated ...
    • An energy stable C0 finite element scheme for a quasi-incompressible phase-field model of moving contact line with variable density
