We introduce a model, similar to diffusion limited aggregation (DLA), which serves as a discrete analog of the continuous dynamics of evaporation of thin liquid films. Within mean field approximation the dynamics of this model, averaged over many realizations of the growing cluster, reduces to that of the idealized evaporation model in which surface tension is neglected. However fluctuations beyond the mean field level play an important role, and...

The aim of this paper is to provide the correctors associated to the homogenization of a parabolic problem describing the heat transfer. The results here complete the earlier study in [Jose, Rev. Roumaine Math. Pures Appl.54 (2009) 189–222] on the asymptotic behaviour of a problem in a domain with two components separated by an ε-periodic interface. The physical model established in [Carslaw and Jaeger, The Clarendon Press, Oxford (1947)] prescribes on the interface the condition that the flux...

We consider a gradient interface model on the lattice with interaction potential which is a non-convex perturbation of a convex potential. Using a technique which decouples the neighboring vertices into even and odd vertices, we show for a class of non-convex potentials: the uniqueness of ergodic component for $\nabla \phi $-Gibbs measures, the decay of covariances, the scaling limit and the strict convexity of the surface tension.

Since cancer is a complex phenomenon that incorporates events occurring on different length and time scales, therefore multiscale models are needed if we hope to adequately address cancer specific questions. In this paper we present three different multiscale individual-cell-based models, each motivated by cancer-related problems emerging from each of the spatial scales: extracellular, cellular or subcellular, but also incorporating relevant information from other levels. We apply these hybrid...

We review recent results on interface states in quantum statistical mechanics.

We consider a variation of the standard Hastings–Levitov model HL(0), in which growth is anisotropic. Two natural scaling limits are established and we give precise descriptions of the effects of the anisotropy. We show that the limit shapes can be realised as Loewner hulls and that the evolution of harmonic measure on the cluster boundary can be described by the solution to a deterministic ordinary differential equation related to the Loewner equation. We also characterise the stochastic fluctuations...

In this paper, we use the adapted periodic unfolding method to study the homogenization and corrector problems for the parabolic problem in a two-component composite with ε-periodic connected inclusions. The condition imposed on the interface is that the jump of the solution is proportional to the conormal derivative via a function of order εγ with γ ≤ −1. We give the homogenization results which include those obtained by Jose in [Rev. Roum. Math. Pures Appl. 54 (2009) 189–222]. We also get the...

For a general class of atomistic-to-continuum coupling methods, coupling multi-body interatomic potentials with a P1-finite element discretisation of Cauchy–Born nonlinear elasticity, this paper adresses the question whether patch test consistency (or, absence of ghost forces) implies a first-order error estimate. In two dimensions it is shown that this is indeed true under the following additional technical assumptions: (i) an energy consistency condition, (ii) locality of the interface correction,...
