Sarcomeres are building blocks of skeletal muscles. Given force–length relations of sarcomeres serially connected in a myofibril, the myofibril force–length relation can be uniquely determined. Necessary and sufficient conditions are derived for capa... Read More about Force–length relation of skeletal muscles: from sarcomeres to myofibril.

For conservative linear chain-structured mass-spring vibration systems with n degrees of freedom, the conjecture of Mikota [1] on the natural frequencies is verified. In addition, the eigenvalue/eigenvector problem of a related square root matrix is... Read More about On natural frequencies and eigenmodes of a linear vibration system.
