Long-range correlations in nucleotide sequences
DNA SEQUENCES have been analysed using models, such as an it-step Markov chain, that incorporate the possibility of short-range nucleotide correlations1. We propose here a method for studying theExpand

Phase behaviour of metastable water
THE metastable extension of the phase diagram of liquid water exhibits rich features that manifest themselves in the equilibrium properties of water. For example, the density maximum at 4 °C and theExpand

We investigate, for two water models displaying a liquid-liquid critical point, the relation between changes in dynamic and thermodynamic anomalies arising from the presence of the liquid-liquidExpand

Computer simulations of liquid silica: equation of state and liquid-liquid phase transition.
We conduct extensive molecular dynamics computer simulations of two models for liquid silica [the model of Woodcock, Angell and Cheeseman, J. Phys. Chem. 65, 1565 (1976); and that of van Beest,Expand

Potential energy landscape description of supercooled liquids and glasses
These notes review the potential energy landscape thermodynamic formalism and some of its recent applications to the study of supercooled glass forming liquids. They also review the techniques whichExpand

Gelation of particles with short-range attraction
Nanoscale or colloidal particles are important in many realms of science and technology. They can dramatically change the properties of materials, imparting solid-like behaviour to a wide variety ofExpand

Observation of empty liquids and equilibrium gels in a colloidal clay.
The relevance of anisotropic interactions in colloidal systems has recently emerged in the context of the rational design of new soft materials. Patchy colloids of different shapes, patterns andExpand

Inherent Structure Entropy of Supercooled Liquids
In recent years, a significant effort has been devoted to understand the fundamental nature of glass-forming materials, a long-standing open problem in condensed matter physics [1]. Theoretical [2Expand

Higher-order glass-transition singularities in colloidal systems with attractive interactions.
The transition from a liquid to a glass in colloidal suspensions of particles interacting through a hard core plus an attractive square-well potential is studied within the mode-coupling-theoryExpand

Effects of patch size and number within a simple model of patchy colloids.
We report on a computer simulation and integral equation study of a simple model of patchy spheres, each of whose surfaces is decorated with two opposite attractive caps, as a function of theExpand
