In a recent paper, an energy-sudden-based local scaling analysis has been introduced. We show that this local analysis can be incorporated into a much more general scaling framework-a framework which encompasses the ‘‘regular’’ energy sudden scaling relations. We also make some suggestions with regard to utilizing the general framework in extending present scaling theoretic analysis.

    Rigorous estimates for the total - (kinetic) energy plus pressure - flux in $${\mathbb{R}^3}$$ are obtained from the three dimensional Navier-Stokes equations. The bounds are used to establish a condition - involving Taylor length scale and the size of the domain - sufficient for existence of...

    Numerical evidence on the relevance of the initial conditions to the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam problem is reported, supported by analytic estimates. In particular, we analyze the special, crucial role played by the phases of the low frequency normal modes initially excited, their energy being the same....

    We propose a scaling of an intrinsic molecular chirality index calculated from atomic positions. Its application to the design of chiral molecules through a consideration of atomic or group chiral indices is discussed for a range of molecules from small molecules to liquid crystal molecules. It...
