      de Figueiredo, Rui J.P. (1979-11-01)
      A framework is presented for constructing various types of numerical quadrature algorithms which take into account the a-priori known or estimated properties of the signal being processed. This is done by appropriately ...
    • Alignment and nonlinear elasticity in biopolymer gels 

      Feng, Jingchen; Levine, Herbert; Mao, Xiaoming; Sander, Leonard M. (2015)
      We present a Landau-type theory for the nonlinear elasticity of biopolymer gels with a part of the order parameter describing induced nematic order of fibers in the gel. We attribute the nonlinear elastic behavior of these ...
    • Alignment of cellular motility forces with tissue flow as a mechanism for efficient wound healing 

      Basan, Markus; Elgeti, Jens; Hannezo, Edouard; Rappel, Wouter-Jan; Levine, Herbert (2012)
      Recent experiments have shown that spreading epithelial sheets exhibit a long-range coordination of motility forces that leads to a buildup of tension in the tissue, which may enhance cell division and the speed of wound ...
