In the classic theory of airway lumen narrowing in asthma, active force in airway smooth muscle is presumed to be in static mechanical equilibrium with the external load against which the muscle has shortened. This theory is useful because it identifies the static equilibrium length toward which activated airway smooth muscle would tend if given enough(More)
Using the standard tight binding model of 2D graphite with short range electron repulsion, we predict a gapless spin-1, neutral collective mode branch below the particle-hole continuum with energy vanishing linearly with momenta at the Gamma and K points in the Brillouin zone. This spin-1 mode has a wide energy dispersion, 0 to approximately 2 eV, and is(More)
Employing the kernel polynomial method (KPM), we study the electronic properties of the graphene bilayers with Bernal stacking in the presence of diagonal disorder, within the tight-binding approximation and nearest neighbor interactions. The KPM method enables us to calculate local density of states (LDOS) without the need to exactly diagonalize the(More)
Human insulin-like growth factor I (hIGF-I) is a kind of growth factor with clinical significance in medicine. Up to now, E. coli expression system has been widely used as a host to produce rhIGF-1 with high yields. Batch cultures as non-continuous fermentations were carried out to overproduce rhIGF-I in E. coli. The major objective of this study is over-(More)

We present a formulation for the nonlinear optical response in gapped graphene, where the low-energy single-particle spectrum is modeled by massive Dirac theory. As a representative example of the formulation presented here, we obtain a closed form formula for the third harmonic generation in gapped graphene. It turns out that the covariant form of the(More)
The particle-hole continuum in the Dirac sea of graphene has a unique window underneath, which in principle leaves room for bound state formation in the triplet particle-hole channel (Baskaran and Jafari 2002 Phys. Rev. Lett. 89 016402). In this work, we construct appropriate triplet particle-hole operators and, using a repulsive Hubbard-type effective(More)
We study an S = 1/2 Heisenberg model on the honeycomb lattice with first and second neighbor antiferromagnetic exchange (J(1)-J(2) model), employing exact diagonalization in both the S(z) = 0 basis and nearest neighbor singlet valence bond (NNVB) basis. We find that for 0.2 < J(2)/J(1) < 0.3, the NNVB basis gives a proper description of the ground state in(More)
The Iterated Perturbation Theory (IPT) equations of the Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT) for the half-filled Hubbard model, are solved on nearly real frequencies at various values of the Hubbard parameters U , to investigate the nature of metal-insulator transition (MIT) at finite temperatures. This method avoids the instabilities associated with the(More)
