The decay rate and the classical radiation power of an excited molecule (atom) located in the center of a dispersive and absorbing dielectric sphere taken as a simple model of a cavity are calculated adopting the Onsager model for the local field. The local-field correction factor to the external (radiation and absorption) power loss of the molecule is(More)
New molecular descriptors, RED (Renyi entropy descriptors), based on the generalized entropies introduced by Renyi are presented. Topological descriptors based on molecular features have proven to be useful for describing molecular profiles. Renyi entropy is used as a variability measure to contract a feature-pair distribution composing the descriptor(More)
B-Raf mutations are identified in 40-50% of patients with melanoma and among them, the substitution of valine for glutamic acid at position 600 ((V600E)B-Raf) is the most frequent. Treatment of these patients with B-Raf inhibitors has been associated with a clear clinical benefit. Unfortunately, multiple resistance mechanisms have been identified and new(More)
We extend our approach to the Casimir effect between absorbing dielectric multilayers [M. S. Tomaš, Phys. Rev. A 66, 052103 (2002)] to magnetodielectric systems. The resulting expression for the force is used to numerically explore the effect of the medium dispersion on the attractive/repulsive force in a metal-magnetodielectric system described by the(More)
Abstract. We argue that the results for the vacuum forces on a slab and on an atom embedded in a magnetodielectric medium near a mirror, obtained using a recently suggested Lorentz-force approach to the Casimir effect, are equivalent to the corresponding results obtained in a traditional way. We also derive a general expression for the atom-atom force in a(More)
We demonstrate that a very recently obtained formula for the force on a slab in a material planar cavity based on the calculation of the vacuum Lorentz force [C. Raabe and D.-G. Welsch, Phys. Rev. A, 71, 013814 (2005)] describes a (medium) screened Casimir force and, in addition to it, a medium-assisted force. The latter force also describes the force on(More)
We demonstrate that, according to a recently suggested Lorentz-force approach to the Casimir effect, the vacuum force on an atom embedded in a material cavity differs substantially from the force on an atom of the cavity medium. The force on an embedded atom is of the familiar (van der Waals and Casimir-Polder) type, however, more strongly modified by the(More)
