Surface tension: Floater clustering in a standing wave (2005)
Journal Article
Weinberg, A., Falkovich, G., Denissenko, P., & Lukaschuk, S. (2005). Surface tension: Floater clustering in a standing wave. Nature, 435(7045), 1045-1046. doi:10.1038/4351045a

How do waves affect the distribution of small particles that float on water? Here we show that drifting small particles concentrate in either the nodes or antinodes of a standing wave, depending on whether they are hydrophilic or hydrophobic, as a re... Read More

Constructive implicit fitting (2005)
Journal Article
Li, Q., Griffiths, J. G., & Ward, J. (2005). Constructive implicit fitting. Computer aided geometric design, 23(1), 17-44. doi:10.1016/j.cagd.2005.04.011

In this paper, we present a constructive method for fitting both an explicit and an implicit curve or surface to a set of scattered points by using gate functions. With this technique, the data are first partitioned with geometric primitives into sma... Read More

Tuning of electronic coupling between self-assembled quantum dots (2005)
Journal Article
Rybchenko, S., Itskevich, I., Skolnick, M. S., Cahill, J., Tartakovskii, A. I., Hill, G., & Hopkinson, M. (2005). Tuning of electronic coupling between self-assembled quantum dots. Applied physics letters, 87(3), 033104. doi:10.1063/1.1995953

Semiconductor self-assembled quantum dots (SAQDs) normally have zero-dimensional properties, but become coupled and acquire higher-dimensional character if the distance between the dots is small. Using photoluminescence spectroscopy under high hydros... Read More

Why are small males aggressive? (2005)
Journal Article
Morrell, L. J., Lindström, J., & Ruxton, G. D. (2005). Why are small males aggressive?. Proceedings. the Royal Society. Biological sciences /, 272(1569), (1235-1241). doi:10.1098/rspb.2005.3085. ISSN 0962-8452

Aggression is ubiquitous in the animal kingdom, whenever the interests of individuals conflict. In contests between animals, the larger opponent is often victorious. However, counter intuitively, an individual that has little chance of winning (gener... Read More

Aim.  The aim of this paper is to report a study exploring the discursive construction of contraceptive use within nurse consultations with women in family planning clinics. Background.  This paper takes as its starting point the lack of a contrac... Read More

A Monte Carlo study of amphiphilic dendrimers: Spontaneous asymmetry and dendron separation (2005)
Journal Article
Giupponi, G., & Buzza, D. M. A. (2005). A Monte Carlo study of amphiphilic dendrimers: Spontaneous asymmetry and dendron separation. The Journal of chemical physics, 122(19), doi:10.1063/1.1896347

We study via Monte Carlo simulation the conformation of amphiphilic dendrimers for which terminal monomers (t) and internal monomers (i) interact differently with the solvent (s). Specifically, we have studied g=3,6 dendrimers as a function of χit, χ... Read More

The haplochromine cichlid fish of the East African Great Lakes represent some of the fastest and most species-rich adaptive radiations known(1), but rivers in most of Africa accommodate only a few morphologically similar species of haplochromine cich... Read More

Men behaving differently: South African men since 1994 (2005)
Journal Article
Walker, L. (2005). Men behaving differently: South African men since 1994. Culture, health & sexuality, 7(3), (225-238). doi:10.1080/13691050410001713215. ISSN 1369-1058

Liberal versions of sexuality, which mark South Africa's new democracy, have had a number of highly contradictory consequences for women and men, as old notions of masculinity and male privilege have been destabilized. The transition to democracy has... Read More

A psychometric evaluation of form C of the multi-dimensional health locus of control (MHLC-C) scale during early pregnancy (2005)
