Stretched Exponential Relaxation of Glasses: Origin of the Mixed Alkali Effect
Although it is indeed commonly believed that, as frozen supercooled liquids, glasses should continue to flow over the years (e.g., in the case of the stained-glass windows of medieval cathedrals),
Survival Probability of the Quantum Walk with Phase Parameters on the Two-Dimensional Trapped Lattice
We investigate the time dependence of the survival probability of quantum walks governed by Fibonacci walks with phase parameters on the trapped two-dimensional lattice. We have shown that the
Measuring Dynamic Correlations of Words in Written Texts with an Autocorrelation Function
In this study, we regard written texts as time series data and try to investigate dynamic correlations of word occurrences by utilizing an autocorrelation function (ACF). After defining appropriate

Incorporating Word Significance into Aspect-Level Sentiment Analysis
These findings support the hypothesis that the attention mechanism needs to be applied to the most significant words for sentiment interpretation and that novelty decay is applicable in aspect-level sentiment analysis with a decay factor β = 0.7.

The history of the stretched exponential function
The original article of Rudolf Kohlrausch (1854) on stretched exponentials and their application to describe relaxation phenomena has been often misquoted in the literature after its rediscovery

Three theories based on different physical mechanisms, the direct-transfer model, the hierarchically constrained dynamics model, and the defect-diffusion model are shown to have an underlying common mathematical structure.
Spin Glass Theory and Beyond
This book contains a detailed and self-contained presentation of the replica theory of infinite range spin glasses. The authors also explain recent theoretical developments, paying particular
Stretched exponentials and barrier distributions
Abstract Non exponential relaxation in complex macromolecular systems may be the consequence of dispersedness giving rise to different free energy barriers for different molecules. An approximate
Stretched exponential relaxation arising from a continuous sum of exponential decays
Stretched exponential relaxation of a quantity n versus time t according to n = n_0 exp[-(lambda* t)^beta] is ubiquitous in many research fields, where lambda* is a characteristic relaxation rate and
Stretched exponential relaxation in molecular and electronic glasses
Stretched exponential relaxation, , fits many relaxation processes in disordered and quenched electronic and molecular systems, but it is widely believed that this function has no microscopic basis,
Non-symmetrical dielectric relaxation behaviour arising from a simple empirical decay function
The empirical dielectric decay function γ(t)= exp –(t/τ0)β may be transformed analytically to give the frequency dependent complex dielectric constant if β is chosen to be 0.50. The resulting
History of the Kohlrausch (stretched exponential) function: Focus on uncited pioneering work in luminescence
The first use of the stretched exponential function to describe the time evolution of a non-equilibrium quantity is usually credited to Rudolph Kohlrausch (1809-1858), who in 1854 applied it to the
Universal stretched exponential relaxation in nanoconfined water
Understanding the behavior of water confined at the nanometer scale is a fundamental problem not only in physics but also in life sciences, geosciences, and atmospheric sciences. Here, we examine
A relationship between asymmetric Lévy-stable distributions and the dielectric susceptibility
This paper, as a complement to the work of Montroll and Bendler, is concerned with the Lévy-stable distributions and their connection to the dielectric response of dipolar materials in the frequency
