Water and its anomalies in perspective: Tetrahedral liquids with and without liquid-liquid phase transitions
We show how water with its small proton bridge between tetrahedrally coordinated oxygen centers, forms a provocative series with (i) the archetypal glassformer and strong liquid, SiO2, (ii) theExpand

`Strong' and `superstrong' liquids, and an approach to the perfect glass state via phase transition
We show first that when the excitations described by the `bond lattice' model, and its `defect' model relatives, are allowed to interact, this simple class of model predicts the possibility ofExpand

IR absorption of silicate glasses studied by ion dynamics computer simulation. I. IR spectra of SiO2 glass in the rigid ion model approximation
Abstract IR spectra, calculated by the ion dynamics computer simulation method (IDCS), are presented for a variety of pair potential models of silica. A number of factors entering the determinationExpand

Study on morphology of ternary polymer blends. I. Effects of melt viscosity and interfacial interaction
The morphology of some ternary blends was investigated. In all of the blends polypropylene, as the major phase, was blended with two different minor phases, ethylene–propylene–diene terpolymer (EPDM)Expand

Interpretation of the molten BeF2 viscosity anomaly in terms of a high temperature density maximum, and other waterlike features
In an effort to understand the anomalous behavior of the viscosity of liquid beryllium fluoride relative to other liquids in the strong/fragile classification we have carried out ion dynamicsExpand

Is there a second critical point in liquid water
The supercooled and stretched regions of the phase diagram of simulated liquid water are investigated by calculating the equation of state of the ST2 and TIP4P pair-potentials. We find that simulatedExpand

Study on morphology of ternary polymer blends. II. Effect of composition
The composition effect on morphology of polypropylene/ethylene–propylene–diene terpolymer/polyethylene (PP/EPDM/PE) and polypropylene/ethylene–propylene–diene terpolymer/polystyrene (PP/EPDM/PS)Expand
