  1. 1. Simple Models for Complex Nonequilibrium Problems in Nanoscale Friction and Network Dynamics

    Författare :David Andersson; Astrid de WIjn; Supriya Krishnamurthy; Nicola Manini; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; tribology; nanofriction; 2d materials; graphene; image reconstruction; social dynamics; common-pool resource; collective action; simple models; Theoretical Physics; teoretisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : This doctoral thesis investigates three different topics: How friction evolves in atomically thin layered materials (2D materials); How social dynamics can be used to model grand scale common-pool resource games; Benchmarking of various image reconstruction algorithms in atomic force microscopy experiments. While these topics are diverse, they share being complex out-of-equilibrium systems. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Phase transitions and vortex structures in multicomponent superconductors

    Författare :Karl Sellin; Egor Babaev; Astrid S. de Wijn; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; multicomponent superconductors; superconductivity; phase transitions; monte carlo; vortices; vortex structure formation; competing interactions;

    Sammanfattning : Theoretical aspects of multicomponent superconductivity and systemswith competing interactions are studied using Monte Carlo techniques.Motivated by recent experimental and theoretical results of complex struc-ture formation of vortices in multicomponent systems, possible vortex struc-ture formations due to vortex interactions that are not purely attractive orrepulsive are considered.
