    We study the density of complex critical points of a real random SO( m+1) polynomial in m variables. In a previous paper (Macdonald in J. Stat. Phys. 136(5):807, ), the author used the Poincar�-Lelong formula to show that the density of complex zeros of a system of these real random...

    We propose a model describing the liquid-vapour phase transition according to a phase-field method. A phase variable φ is introduced whose equilibrium values φ = 0 and φ = 1 are associated with the liquid and vapour phases. The phase field obeys Ginzburg-Landau equation and enters...

    The article focuses on the problem of "criticality in correlated quantum matter" and the predictions of several solvable models in quantum phase transitions. It was found that the signature of a quantum critical point is not necessarily restricted to very low temperatures. The quantum...

    A model developed for the estimation of the diffusion coefficient based on Fickian diffusion is applied to the dehydration of a Coober Pedy white play of colour (precious) opal using thermogravimetric analysis (TG). The model was originally applied to bulk and powdered opal (opal with no bulk)....

    We study compartmental epidemiological models of the form x = A(x) x, xε□ n , where A(x) is the so called Metzler matrix. We prove that for such systems there exist an energy function V (x) which can be used to establish the stability of the critical points of the system.

    Using the analytical and numerical approaches, the nonlinear dynamic behaviors in the vicinity of a compound critical point are studied for a rectangular symmetric cross-ply laminated composite plate with a parametric excitation. The geometric nonlinearity and nonlinear damping are included in...
