An efficient method to construct the six dimensional global potential energy surface (PES) for two atoms interacting with a periodic rigid surface, the flexible periodic London-Eyring-Polanyi-Sato model, has been proposed recently. The main advantages of this model, compared to state-of-the-art interpolated ab initio PESs developed in the past, reside in(More)
We compare the results of two independent synthetic aperture radar differential interferometry (DInSAR) approaches to slope instability investigations in the Mara-tea valley (Southern Italy), based on different processing methods and software. The area selected for the comparison is well ground truthed and provides suitable examples of movements ranging(More)
