Reaching a ground state of a spin system is analogous to a protein evolving into its native state. We study the " folding " times for various random Ising spin systems and determine characteristic temperatures that relate to the " folding ". Under optimal kinetic conditions, the " folding " times scale with the system size as a power law with a(More)
The results are presented for the deconvolution of IR spectra of disaccharides and polysaccharides with alpha and beta configurations of the 1 --> 4 glycosidic linkage (maltose, cellobiose, amylose, and cellulose), as well as of their corresponding monosaccharides (alpha- and beta-D-glucose) in the 1200-920 cm(-1) frequency range. It is established that a(More)
The dynamical chaos in Lennard-Jones toy models of heteropolymers is studied by molecular dynamics simulations. It is shown that two nearby trajectories quickly diverge from each other if the heteropolymer corresponds to a random sequence. For good folders, on the other hand, two nearby trajectories may initially move apart but eventually they come(More)
Molecular dynamics studies of nanometer-sized rigid grains, droplets and bubbles in nanometer-sized pores indicate that the drag force may have a hydrodynamic form if the moving object is dense and small compared to the pore diameter. Otherwise, the behavior is nonhydrodynamic. The terminal speed is insensitive to whether the falling droplet is made of(More)
As is well known, hard-sphere crystals of the fcc and hcp type differ very little in their thermodynamic properties. Nonetheless, recent computer simulations by Pronk and Frenkel indicate that the elastic response to mechanical deformation of these two types of crystal are quite different [S. Pronk and D. Frenkel, Phys. Rev. Lett. 90, 255501 (2003)]. By(More)
The capacity of leukovirus RD-114 to replicate in human embryo lung diploid cell cultures and continuous human angiosarcoma cell cultures (AS and 709 lines). Differences in the capacity to support the virus reproduction were observed in the two strains of human embryo lung cells (HEL-1 and HEL-3) and the two continuous angiosarcoma cell lines. No virus(More)
