    While methods for determining transient pressures in shocked condensed matter are available, the need has arisen for new gauges whose quality of data, ease of use, and cost make them more appropriate for studying underwater shocks. A novel optical technique for measuring transient pressures in...

    The fact that the Korteweg–de Vries equation offers a good approximation of long-wave solutions of small amplitude to the one-dimensional Gross–Pitaevskii equation was derived several years ago in the physical literature (see e.g. [17]). In this paper, we provide a rigorous proof...

    Surface modification of titanium and its alloys is of great importance for their practical application as biomedical implants. We have studied and compared assembly of dodecylphosphoric acid on commercial polished and on nanostructured titanium disks. The latter were produced by chemical etching...
