    We argue that the coarse-grained dynamics of the zero-range process in the condensation regime can be described by an extension of the standard hydrodynamic equation obtained from Eulerian scaling even though the system is not locally stationary. Our result is supported by Monte Carlo simulations.

    To accurately describe non-stationary carrier transport in GaAs devices, it is necessary to use Monte Carlo methods or hydrodynamical (or energy transport) models which incorporate population transfer between valleys. We present here simulations of Gunn oscillations in a GaAs diode based on...

    While the prediction of hydrodynamic properties of rigid particles is nowadays feasible using simple and efficient computer programs, the calculation of such properties and, in general, the dynamic behavior of flexible macromolecules has not reached a similar situation. Although the theories are...
