Physicist proves impossibility of quantum time crystals
Better insight into molecular interactions
How molecules in biochemical solutions do interact, is a question of great importance for understanding processes in catalysts, functional materials and even in organisms. Until now, scientists could have ...
New theory points to 'zombie vortices' as key step in star formation
(Phys.org) —A new theory by fluid dynamics experts at the University of California, Berkeley, shows how "zombie vortices" help lead to the birth of a new star.
Researchers develop model to help control cascading events
Cosmic turbulences result in star and black hole formation
Just how stars and black holes in the Universe are able to form from rotating matter is one of the big questions of astrophysics. What we do know is that magnetic fields figure prominently into the picture. ...
Researchers examine dynamics of liquid metal particles at nanoscale
Two NJIT researchers have demonstrated that using a continuum-based approach, they can explain the dynamics of liquid metal particles on a substrate of a nanoscale. "Numerical simulation of ejected molten ...
Small businesses grapple with handling online image
Restaurants, mom-and-pop shops and other small businesses often face an abundance of frustrating complications during start-up - construction delays and supply shortages being among the top obstacles.
Women Still Less Likely to Commit Corporate Fraud
Women are less likely to take part in corporate crime and fraud even though more women now work in corporations and serve at higher levels of those organizations, according to a team of sociologists.
Physicists propose Higgs boson 'portal' as the source of this elusive entity
One of the biggest mysteries in contemporary particle physics and cosmology is why dark energy, which is observed to dominate energy density of the universe, has a remarkably small (but not zero) value. This value is so small, ...
Researchers discover midair collisions enhance the strength of sandstorms
Study explores effects of review setting on scientific peer review
Research findings published today in PLOS ONE report that the setting in which a scientific peer review panel evaluates grant applications does not necessarily impact the outcome of the review process. However, the resear ...
