Pathogen properties in infected host tissues are crucial for disease and control. Novel single-cell technologies reveal an astonishing diversity of pathogen cells with disparate molecular compositions, fates, and impact on overall disease progression. A current key challenge is to understand the relation between these various pathogen subsets and their respective host microenvironments. As a first ...

Abstract: As a snow scientist, the realism of snow deformation in the Disney movie Frozen was a great source of wonder. Behind the magic scenes, UCLA / Disney mathematicians and computer scientists developed a snow model called "Matterhorn" based on the hybrid Eulerian-Lagrangian Material Point Method (MPM) with a simplified snow mechanical model. I was ... Read more about "EESS talk on "Unified modeling of snow and avalanche mechanics using the material point method""

Open issues on seismic assessment of existing masonry buildings: linear vs nonlinear, static vs dynamic, local vs global approaches
ABSTRACT: The seismic assessment of existing masonry buildings is a difficult task due to the complexity of reliable models, particularly in the case of older non-engineered ones. The qualitative approach is a essential element of knowledge for the interpretation of the seismic behaviour but cannot replace a quantitative security check. As-built information, based on historical ... Read more about "Open issues on seismic assessment of existing masonry buildings: linear vs nonlinear, static vs dynamic, local vs global approaches"
