The dynamics of individual colloidal particles in random potential energy landscapes were investigated experimentally and by Monte Carlo simulations.…

We experimentally demonstrate the light-controlled assembly of active colloidal molecules from a suspension of two species of passive microspheres.Wh…

Sympathetic cooling of trapped ions has been established as a powerful technique for manipulation of non-laser-coolable ions (Raizen1992,Waki1992,Bow…

There is no winner.

Classical extreme value statistics consists of two fundamental approaches: the block maxima (BM) method and the peak-over-threshold (POT) approach. I…

The dynamics of colloidal particles in potential energy landscapes have mainly been investigated theoretically. In contrast, here we discuss the expe…

Conspectus: The ability to navigate in chemical gradients, called chemotaxis, is crucial for the survival of microorganisms. It allows them to find f…

In many areas of data mining, data is collected from humans beings. In this contribution, we ask the question of how people actually respond to ordin…

In this study, we formulate a density functional theory (DFT) for systems of labeled particles, considering a two-dimensional bead-spring lattice wit…

We consider a coupled system consisting of a kinetic equation coupled to a macroscopic Stokes (or Navier-Stokes) equation and describing the motion o…

Passive microrheology exploits the Brownian motion of colloidal tracer particles. From the mean-squared displacement (MSD) of the tracers, the bulk r…

Many protocols of quantum information processing, like quantum key distribution or measurement-based quantum computation, "consume" entangled quantum…

The survival of many microorganisms, like \textit{Leptospira} or \textit{Spiroplasma} bacteria, can depend on their ability to navigate towards regio…

In recent years, research unveiled more and more evidence for the so-called Bayesian Brain Paradigm, i.e. the human brain is interpreted as a probabi…

Properties of persistent spectral holes (SHs) relevant for frequency metrology have been investigated in the system $Eu^{3+}:Y_{2}SiO_{5}$ (0.5%) at …

Many typical Bell experiments can be described as follows. A source repeatedly distributes particles among two spacelike separated observers. Each of…

In macroscopic mechanical devices torque is transmitted through gearwheels and clutches. In the construction of devices at the nanoscale, torque and …

A vertex set $U \subseteq V$ of an undirected graph $G=(V,E)$ is a $\textit{resolving set}$ for $G$, if for every two distinct vertices $u,v \in V$ t…

Latest research revealed a considerable lack of reliability within user feedback and discussed striking impacts for the assessment of adaptive web sy…

Active colloids, which self-propel by producing a chemical gradient across their own surface, serve as versatile microengines sparking a huge potenti…

Synchronization, the emergence of temporally coordinated behavior in large populations of interacting elements, occurs on many different length scale…
