Following Lin and Maldacena, we find exact supergravity solutions dual to a class of vacua of the plane wave matrix model by solving an electrostatics problem. These are asymptotically near-horizon D0-brane solutions with a throat associated with NS5-brane degrees of freedom. We determine the precise limit required to decouple the asymptotic geometry and… (More)

Entropy drives the phase behavior of colloids ranging from dense suspensions of hard spheres or rods to dilute suspensions of hard spheres and depletants. Entropic ordering of anisotropic shapes into complex crystals, liquid crystals, and even quasicrystals was demonstrated recently in computer simulations and experiments. The ordering of shapes appears to… (More)

Patchy particles are a popular paradigm for the design and synthesis of nanoparticles and colloids for self-assembly. In "traditional" patchy particles, anisotropic interactions arising from patterned coatings, functionalized molecules, DNA, and other enthalpic means create the possibility for directional binding of particles into higher-ordered structures.… (More)

Chiroptical materials found in butterflies, beetles, stomatopod crustaceans, and other creatures are attributed to biocomposites with helical motifs and multiscale hierarchical organization. These structurally sophisticated materials self-assemble from primitive nanoscale building blocks, a process that is simpler and more energy efficient than many… (More)

We use the Lin-Maldacena prescription to demonstrate how to find the supergravity solutions dual to arbitrary vacua of the plane wave matrix model and maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on R × S2, by solving the auxiliary electrostatics problem. We then apply the technique to study instantons at strong coupling in the matrix model.

Dense particle packing in a confining volume remains a rich, largely unexplored problem, despite applications in blood clotting, plasmonics, industrial packaging and transport, colloidal molecule design, and information storage. Here, we report densest found clusters of the Platonic solids in spherical confinement, for up to [Formula: see text] constituent… (More)

We show that little string theory on S5 can be obtained as double-scaling limits of the maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories on R×S2 and R×S/Zk. By matching the gauge theory parameters with those in the dual supergravity solutions found by Lin and Maldacena, we determine the limits in the gauge theories that correspond to decoupling of NS5-brane… (More)

We present results of lattice simulations of the Plane Wave Matrix Model (PWMM). The PWMM is a theory of supersymmetric quantum mechanics that has a well-defined canonical ensemble. We simulate this theory by applying rational hybrid Monte Carlo techniques to a näıve lattice action. We examine the strong coupling behaviour of the model focussing on the… (More)

Starting with the early alchemists, a holy grail of science has been to make desired materials by modifying the attributes of basic building blocks. Building blocks that show promise for assembling new complex materials can be synthesized at the nanoscale with attributes that would astonish the ancient alchemists in their versatility. However, this… (More)

At the dawn of the twentieth century, humankind began to make mechanical parts in large quantities, and manufacturers assembled them into early automobiles. The development of the assembly line by Olds and by Ford1 led to mass production on a scale that allowed the automobile to shift from a boutique product to a consumer good. Today’s nano-scientists find… (More)
