The vision for Web 3. 0 (also known as Semantic Web) is the ability to create meaning out of huge quantity of qualitative data. Existing data can be interconnected for further uses. Web 2. 0 focusedâ€¦ (More)

Some applications of expert systems to power system control are explored. It is shown how they can be used to alleviate the burden on the operators during emergency periods. To this end, the designâ€¦ (More)

In this paper we examine a version of the Fermi piston with a discontinuous, but nonimpulsive, periodic driving force. The dynamics of a particle moving in one spatial dimension are studied using aâ€¦ (More)

We use path-integral Monte Carlo to study the properties of a quantum particle equilibrated in a classical Lennard-Jones fluid. By choosing 2m(e) for its mass, and potential parameters correspondingâ€¦ (More)

Due to the infinite range and singularity of the gravitational force, it is difficult to directly apply the standard methods of statistical physics to self-gravitating systems, e.g., interstellarâ€¦ (More)

Gravitational billiards provide a simple method for the illustration of the dynamics of Hamiltonian systems. Here we examine a new billiard system with two parameters, which exhibits, in two limitingâ€¦ (More)

We review recent developments in the study of two different interacting gravitational systems: the system of parallel planar mass sheets and the system of concentric spherical mass shells. Theâ€¦ (More)
