Recent Advances in the Theory and Simulation of Model Colloidal Microphase Formers.
(J Phys Chem B, 2016-08-18)
This mini-review synthesizes our understanding of the equilibrium behavior of particle-based models with short-range attractive and long-range repulsive (SALR) interactions. These models, which can form stable periodic ...
[N]pT ensemble and finite-size-scaling study of the critical isostructural transition in the generalized exponential model of index 4.
(Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys, 2012-10)
First-order transitions of system where both lattice site occupancy and lattice spacing fluctuate, such as cluster crystals, cannot be efficiently studied by traditional simulation methods, which necessarily fix one of these ...
Statistical analysis of crystallization database links protein physico-chemical features with crystallization mechanisms.
(PLoS One, 2014)
X-ray crystallography is the predominant method for obtaining atomic-scale information about biological macromolecules. Despite the success of the technique, obtaining well diffracting crystals still critically limits going ...
Phase diagram and aggregation dynamics of a monolayer of paramagnetic colloids
We have developed a tunable colloidal system and a corresponding simulation model for studying the phase behavior of particles assembling under the influence of long-range magnetic interactions. A monolayer of paramagnetic ...
Numerical and theoretical study of a monodisperse hard-sphere glass former
(PHYSICAL REVIEW E, 2010-04)
Application of Edwards' statistical mechanics to high-dimensional jammed sphere packings

A nontrivial critical fixed point for replica-symmetry-breaking transitions
The transformation of the free-energy landscape from smooth to hierarchical is one of the richest features of mean-field disordered systems. A well-studied example is the de Almeida-Thouless transition for spin glasses in ...
Lecture Notes on the Statistical Mechanics of Disordered Systems
This material complements David Chandler's Introduction to Modern Statistical Mechanics (Oxford University Press, 1987) in a graduate-level, one-semester course I teach in the Department of Chemistry at Duke University. ...
The effect of nanowire length and diameter on the properties of transparent, conducting nanowire films.
This article describes how the dimensions of nanowires affect the transmittance and sheet resistance of a random nanowire network. Silver nanowires with independently controlled lengths and diameters were synthesized with ...
Numerical detection of the Gardner transition in a mean-field glass former.
(Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys, 2015-07)
Recent theoretical advances predict the existence, deep into the glass phase, of a novel phase transition, the so-called Gardner transition. This transition is associated with the emergence of a complex free energy landscape ...
