  • On the stability of continuously stratified quasi-geostrophic hetons 

    Reinaud, Jean Noel (2015-04-30) - Journal article
    In this paper we examine the stability of quasi-geostrophic hetons in a stably, continuously stratified fluid. To this purpose we first determinate numerically equilibrium states. Equilibrium hetons consist of two vortices ...
  • Solar prominences embedded in flux ropes : morphological features and dynamics from 3D MHD simulations 

    Terradas, J.; Soler, R.; Luna, M.; Oliver, R.; Ballester, J. L.; Wright, Andrew Nicholas (2016-03-30) - Journal article
    The temporal evolution of a solar prominence inserted in a three-dimensional magnetic flux rope is investigated numerically. Using the model of Titov & Démoulin (1999) under the regime of weak twist, the cold and dense ...
  • Copulae on products of compact Riemannian manifolds 

    Jupp, P.E. (2015-09) - Journal article
    Abstract One standard way of considering a probability distribution on the unit n -cube, [0 , 1]n , due to Sklar (1959), is to decompose it into its marginal distributions and a copula, i.e. a probability distribution on ...
  • The effect of interstitial pressure on therapeutic agent transport : coupling with the tumor blood and lymphatic vascular systems 

    Wu, Min; Frieboes, Hermann B.; Chaplain, Mark A. J.; McDougall, Steven R.; Cristini, Vittorio; Lowengrub, John S. (2014-08-21) - Journal article
    Vascularized tumor growth is characterized by both abnormal interstitial fluid flow and the associated interstitial fluid pressure (IFP). Here, we study the effect that these conditions have on the transport of therapeutic ...
  • Recent advances in coronal heating 

    De Moortel, I.; Browning, P. (2015-05-28) - Journal article
    The solar corona, the tenuous outer atmosphere of the Sun, is orders of magnitude hotter than the solar surface. This 'coronal heating problem' requires the identification of a heat source to balance losses due to thermal ...
