We use a recent non ad hoc model of microcluster (MM) proposed by Prof. Howard Reiss and co-authors together with a more rigorous theory of the nucleation kinetic equation. It is shown that this model satisfactory predicts at least qualitative features of nucleation and the nucleation rate is insensitive to the connectivity distance d[sub c].

    It is demonstrated experimentally that the aftereffect phenomenon associated with dynamic deformation is inherent to all types of soils - from sands to heavy plastic clays. Its duration may attain 50-60% of the total time required for development of the deformation process, while the aftereffect...

    A detailed theoretical study of solvation dynamics in water is presented. The motivation of the present study comes from the recent experimental observation that the dynamics of solvation of an ion in water is ultrafast and the solvation time correlation function decays with a time constant of...

    Predicting the properties of nonequilibrium systems from molecular simulations is a growing area of interest. One important class of problems involves steady-state diffusion. To study these cases, a grand canonical molecular dynamics approach has been developed by Heffelfinger and van Swol [J....
