Of all the thermodynamic variables, our theoretical methods have the greatest control over pressure. The foundation of modern density functional based total energy methods rests on early studies on the behaviour of crystals under pressure. High pressure experiments are, however, far from straightforward. These experiments typically involve only small quantities of the sample of interest. ...

We show the existence of independent random matching of a large population in a continuous-time dynamical system, where the matching intensities could be general non-negative jointly continuous functions on the space of type distributions and the time line. In particular, we construct a continuum of independent continuous-time Markov processes that is derived from random mutation, ... Read more about "Bernoulli Lecture - Continuous-time random matching"

Streptococcus pneumoniae, the pneumococcus, is the main etiological agent of pneumonia. Pneumococcal infection is initiated by bacterial adherence to lung epithelial cells. To uncover the exact transcriptional changes that occur in both host and microbe during infection, we developed a time-resolved dual RNA-seq model. By comparing transcriptional changes between wild-type encapsulated and mutant unencapsulated pneumococci, ...

Abstract: Remote sensing of water quality works well in clear open ocean waters where the only optically active substance in water is phytoplankton. Other optically active substances – coloured dissolved organic matter (CDOM) and suspended solids, are mainly phytoplankton degradation products and therefore in correlation with phytoplankton biomass, usually expressed as concentration of chlorophyll-a.

This paper explores whether affine models with volatility jumps estimated on intradaily S&P 500 futures data over 1983-2008 can capture major daily outliers such as the 1987 stock market crash. I find that intradaily jumps in futures prices are typically small, and that self-exciting but short-lived volatility spikes capture intradaily and daily returns better. Multifactor ...
