Paper: “BLUES function method in computational physics”

Joseph O Indekeu, Kristian K. Müller-Nedebock, “BLUES function method in computational physics”, Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, 51, 165201 (2018) http://dx.doi.org/10.1088/1751-8121/aab345 or https://arxiv.org/abs/1802.10090. Here is a popular summary prepared by Joseph Indekeu: BLUES function method In the 17th century, with the invention of calculus, Newton and Leibniz introduced differential equations. In linear differential equations the unknown function appears… Read More »

Paper: Active force maintains the stability of the contractile ring

Stanard Mebwe Pachong and Kristian Müller-Nedebock “Active force maintains the stability of a contractile ring” European Physical Journal E (2017) 40:91 DOI:10.1140/epje/i2017-11581-9 We discuss how motors in the contractile ring bring about its stability, separating the effects of the activity and the networking.
