Monte Carlo simulations of the interaction between polymers and a membrane

 

A Monte Carlo algorithm is presented to directly simulate the Helfrich energy model for the description of a fluctuating surface. Monte Carlo simulations are presented for

(A) the structural transition of a self-avoiding polymer confined in an elastic soft tube and

(B) the induced capillary force between two colloid particles adsorbed on membrane surface.

An extended regime in the parameter space has been explored where various scaling properties can be viewed and compared with theoretical results.

Evolution Features of Large Unifying Hybrid Network Model with a Variable Growing Speeds

 

In many real-world growing networks, e.g. Internet, WWW, biological  networks and so on, the mean number of connections per vertex and the number of weighted edges are varied as time evolution. To improve the large unifying hybrid Network Model(LUHNM) proposed by us previously, we further introduce a variable growing format, such as the number of added edges follows m(t) = p(t)(N(t))αwhere  is a variable exponent, N(t) is size of the growing network at t time, p(t) is a probabilistic number of links at t time, to consider the LUHNM with a variable growing speeds. In this report, we show that the variable growth speeds effect on the characteristics of the LUHNM largely, and reveal the new topological properties (assortativity and clustering coefficient ) of the LUHNM with three hybrid ratios. We discuss main results of the different growing variable speeds (deceleration (<0), normal (=0), acceleration (0<<1) and hyper-acceleration (>1)), and observe some new evolution features of the LUHNM by numerically simulation.

Quantum computer design

A quantum computer, if one could be built, would transform information technology by providing vastly increased computational power for certain specialized tasks, such as searching databases or breaking codes. The purpose of quantum gate design is to theoretically determine the actual computational power of a proposed quantum computing architecture, such as trapped ions or superconducting circuits, and to design, simulate, and optimize real quantum gates and algorithm implementations for that architecture. Work is done in collaboration with the UCSB superconducting quantum computation program and our quantum gate design methods will be applied to that architecture.

Numerical Approach to Synchronization of Coupled Nonlinear Systems

 

Synchronization appears in a variety of phenomena. In this talk, I
briefly review our researches about synchronization in nonlinear
coupled systems. The topics under discussion include:
(1) synchronization and coherence in thermodynamic coupled map lattices
with intermediate-range coupling [Phys. Rev. E 60, 4966 (1999)],
(2)synchronous chaos in coupled map lattices with small-world
interactions [Phys. Rev. E 62, 6409 (2000)],
(3) synchronization for systems on scale-free networks
[Phys. Rev. E 71, 016211 and 016211 (2005)],
(4) universality and scaling in transition to synchronous chaos
with local-global  interactions [Phys. Rev. E 73, 036212 (2006)],
(5) influence of noises on the synchronization of the stochastic
Kuramoto model [Phys. Rev. E 76, in press (2007)].

Simulation on Vortex Glasses

 

Vortices in type II superconductors form Abrikosov lattice in clean limit. Pinning centers change the vortex states in many ways, which is interesting both academically and for applications. In the present talk, I concentrate on the case of randomly distributed point-like defects, in which the Abrkosov vortex lattice is deformed into the so-called Bragg glass and vortex glass. I will introduce our dynamics simulation on the current-driven vortices, with the focus on the zero-temperature depinning transition as well as creep motion at low temperatures and close to the depinning point. Scaling features have been revealed which unifies the depin and creep motions [1]. Arrhenius-type, which covers the famous Anderson-Kim theory, and non-Arrhenius-type creeps have been found in vortex glass and Bragg glass, respectively. We then discuss a possible new phase transition at intermediate temperatures in light of the replica symmetry breaking [2].

 

This talk is based on the work in collaboration with M.-B. Luo of Zhejiang University.

Science Matters: The Newest and Biggest Interdiscipline

What is science? The answer is: Everything in nature is a part of science. What people call natural science is actually the science of simple systems; humanities/social sciences belong to the science of complex systems. Here, the origin of the two cultures (humanities and science) is discussed and relevant problems clarified. The notion of integrating humanities with science is a misleading issue, since humanities are part of science, too. Science Matters is the new interdiscipline about all human-dependent knowledge. The basic viewpoint and approach is: humanities/social sciences is studied as part of science, by following the good tradition of Aristotle, using the successful experience gained in physics (especially statistical physics) and other disciplines, and viewing them as complex systems. Histophysics (the physics-of-history discipline) is presented as an example on how to do this.

Genomes: at the edge of chaos with maximum information capacity

 

The notion of Life at the edge of chaos is quantified through

an order index, _, that measures the randomness of genomic sequences

by mapping sequences to real numbers ranging from 1

(ordered sequence) to 0 (random sequence of infinite length). The

786 complete genomic sequences extant in GenBank are found to

have _ values residing in a very narrow range, 0.037±0.027, implying

that genomes are halfway towards being completely random,

namely, at the edge of chaos. The average _ values of six classical

literature works, including the King James edition of the

Bible, Shakespeares Sonnets and Joyces Ulysses, and ranging in

length from 80 k to 5.9 M letters, is 0.039±0.011, namely, just like

genomes. We discuss possible meanings of these findings in the

context of the evolution of genomes as an information carrier. It

is suggested that genomes reside in the neighborhood of a fixedpoint

in the space of sequences, driven there by the dynamics of

a robust, predominantly neutral evolutionary process.

Terahertz Emission from High-Tc Superconductors

 

Solving coupled nonlinear sine-Gordon equations and Maxwell equations numerically, we study the electromagnetic and superconducting properties of the single crystal of high-Tc superconductor Bi-2212 with a static magnetic field applied parallel to the ab-plane and a dc current fed in along the c-axis. Cavity resonances of transverse plasma occur in the intrinsic Josephson junctions with frequencies in terahertz regime. It is revealed that the electromagnetic wave can transmit from the junctions into space. The emitted energy counted by the Poynting vector is about 400W/cm^2. The frequency as well as the energy of emission can be tuned almost continuously by the current and magnetic field.

Spatial phase and generalized synchronization

 

It is usually believed that generalized synchronization cannot be measured by a quantity depending only on the plane phase in $2D$ space. However, we here show that it will become possible if the plane phase is generalized to a {\it spatial phase}, which characterizes the rotational behavior of an arbitrary high dimensional ($n>2$) trajectory. Compared with the plane phase defined for a $2D$ projected trajectory, the spatial phase uniquely defined for an original $nD$ trajectory reflects the accumulation of spatial angles connected to small arcs of trajectory and turns out to be useful to analyze synchronization of coupled systems. Actually we introduce an order parameter to measure the generalized synchronization in two coupled chaotic oscillators based on the spatial phase and demonstrate its utility to experimental time series.

Finite-size scaling in the Kuramoto model *
 

The Kuramoto model describes the synchronization phenomenon in coupled random frequency oscillators. Despite extensive analytical and numerical studies in the past, many open issues remain. An interesting but challenging problem is the description of the scaling properties of the entrained cluster (e.g., size, stability, dynamics, etc.) at the entrainment transition, in a finite population of oscillators. We report a recent analysis of this problem using the mean field theory, as well as results

from numerical investigations using different oscillator frequency models, which indicate a surprising nonuniversal behavior. The finite-size scaling properties of the Kuramoto model on a hypercubic lattice in finite dimensions, and on complex networks will also be briefly discussed.

Order-N Monte Carlo algorithm for spin systems with long-range interaction

 

Existence of long-range interactions drastically modifies the critical behavior of the spin system.  For example, it is known that the one-dimensional ferromagnetic Ising model with inverse-square long-range

interaction has a finite-temperature Kosterlitz-Thouless-type transition, at which the magnetization exhibits a "universal jump". In numerical studies of long-range systems, however, the CPU cost

proportional to the square of the number of spins has been a bottleneck for simulating large lattices.  With the aim of resolving this difficulty, we propose two new Monte Carlo methods.  One is the Swendsen-Wang/Wolff cluster algorithm and the other is single-spin flip algorithm.  Both methods are of O(N) in CPU time.  We show that the detailed balance condition is strictly satisfied and explain how the speed gets O(N).  We also present results for Ising system with dipole interaction simulated with the help of O(N) replica exchange method as well as generalization to quantum spin models.

Cooperation from Evolutionary Games on Networks

 

Since the spatial structure is introduced into the evolutionary games by Nowak and May, there has been a continuous effort on exploring effects of spatial structures on the cooperation. It has been found that the spatial structure promotes evolution of cooperation in the prisoners dilemma game (PDG), while in contrast often inhibits cooperative behavior in the snowdrift game (SG). In recent years, extensive studies indicate that many real networks are far different from regular lattices, instead, show small-world and scale-free topological properties. Hence, it is naturally to consider evolutionary games on networks with these kinds of properties. An interesting result found by Santos and Pacheco is that Scale-free networks provide a unifying framework for the emergence of cooperation.

 

In this talk, I review some of our works in the field of evolutionary games. By means of some simple models, we have studied how an important topological structural feature and the average degree affect the cooperative behavior. We found there exists the highest cooperation level induced by an optimal value of average degree for different types of networks. Besides, we investigate the randomness effect on the cooperative behavior by introducing both topological and dynamical randomness. We found a resonance type phenomena reflected by the existence of highest level of cooperation in the case of appropriate randomness. Moreover, we propose a memory-based snowdrift game over complex networks. Some very interesting behaviors are observed, such as the non-monotonous behavior of frequency of cooperation as a function of payoff parameter, spatial pattern transition and so on.

Phase statistics approach to time series

 

In this talk, I will review an approach we introduced recently to study physiological and financial time series. The approach mainly consists of an application of the empirical mode decomposition to decompose an empirical time series into a number of intrinsic mode functions (IMFs), calculation of the instantaneous phase of the resultant IMFs, and the statistics of the instantaneous phase for each IMF. To illustrate the approach, we consider two examples: the phase distribution and phase correlation of financial time series, and the temporal evolution for the phase histogram of ECG during human ventricular fibrillation.

Effects of depletion force on protein stability, folding dynamics, and protein aggregation

 

In cells, proteins perform their functions in crowded environments; this crowdedness affects proteins stability, dynamics, and protein reactions, such as aggregations.  We investigate the effects of confinements and macromolecular crowding on protein stability and dynamics using both lattice and polymer models.  Because of the roughness of free energy landscape of the protein models, multi-histogram and replica exchange methods are used to speed up protein dynamics.  On the experimental side, we have used single-molecule atomic force microscopy to measure the force required to unfold a protein.  Results show that this unfolding force increases with the concentration of crowders.  Theoretical and experimental results qualitatively agree with each other, but not quantitatively.  We are investigating whether this discrepancy can be explained using generalized depletion force theory.  Furthermore, molecular dynamics calculations have also been carried out to study the aggregation properties of simple peptides

Production, depreciation and the size distribution of firms

 

Many empirical researches indicate that firm size distributions in different industries or countries exhibit some similar characters, of which has been mostly discussed is that lots of firm size distributions obey power-law, especially for the upper end. Here we present an agent-based model to describe the evolution of manufacturing firms, some basic economic behaviors are taken into account, which are production with decreasing marginal returns, preferential allocation of investments, and stochastic depreciation. The model gives a steady size distribution of firms which obeys power-law, and the effect of parameters on the power exponent is analyzed. The theoretical results are given based both on Fokker-Planck equation and Kesten process. They are consistent well with the numerical results.

Theoretical Approach to Zipf’s law and Some Demonstration of Chinese Phrase

 

A theoretical approach to analyzing Zipfs law in language is proposed and verified in this paper. It applies continuum theory and master equation which have ever been used in complex network to analytically account for the true reason for Zipfs law-- which is extensively followed by English, French and other languages. Moreover, clarifying the relationship between Zipfs law and power law. Thereby an important exponent -1 in power law is coming up to explain why Chinese character after Chin Dynasty does not obey Zipfs law while Chinese Phrase used in some morden works obeys both Zipfs law and power law.

Consequence of doping in spatiotemporal rock-paper-scissors games

What determines species diversity is dramatic concern in science. Here we report the effect of doping on diversity in spatiotemporal rock-paper-scissors (RPS) games, which can be observed directly in ecological, biological and social systems in nature. Doping means that there exists some buffer patches which do not involve the main procession of the conflicts but occupied the game space. Quantitative lattices simulation finds that (1) decrease of extinction possibility is exponential dependent on the increase of doping rate, (2) the possibility of the conflict is independent of doping rate at well mix evolution beginning, and is buffered by doping in long time coexistence procession. Practical meaning of doping are discussed. To demonstrate the importance of doping, we present one practical example for microbial laboratory efficient operation and one theoretical example for human-environment co-existence system better understanding. It suggests that, for diversity, doping can not be neglected in spatial RPS games study and in practical operation.
