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.

Paper: Molecular dynamics simulations of polymer systems under geometrical confinement

Arash Azari, Kristian K. Müller-Nedebock “Entropic competition in polymeric systems under geometrical confinement”, EPL 110 68004 doi:10.1209/0295-5075/110/68004 (alternatively, http://arxiv.org/abs/1408.5312) We present simulations of alternating copolymers of segments of different stiffness that are confined within regions.  Mixtures of different chains then have different arrangements depending on the size of the confining region. In another paper we shall be… Read More »

Collaborator: Ben Loos

Dr Ben Loos (Dept of Physiological Sciences at Stellenbosch University) has a long-standing interest in the molecular mechanisms that control cell death susceptibility. His research centres around protein degradative mechanisms and their dynamics, transport and function of mitochondria along tubulin networks and their role in neuronal degeneration and migration.  His research group utilizes in vitro… Read More »
