    Decay of the turbulence of capillary waves on the surface of a real liquid is studied in the presence of the viscous damping of the waves at all frequencies after stepwise removal of external pumping. The investigation is performed using two different models: the weak turbulence approximation...

    We examine the molecular-atomic transition in liquid hydrogen as it relates to metallization. Pair potentials are obtained from first principles molecular dynamics and compared with potentials derived from quadratic response. The results provide insight into the nature of covalent bonding under...
