  • Author(s): Emanuele Locatelli, Valentino Bianco, and Paolo Malgaretti We investigate, using numerical simulations, the conformations of isolated active ring polymers. We find that their behavior depends crucially on their size: Short rings ($N≲100$) swell, whereas longer rings ($N≳200$) collapse, at sufficiently high activity. By investigating the nonequilibrium proce... [Phys. Rev. Lett. 126, 097801] Published Mon Mar 01, 2021
  • Author(s): Leandro J. Fosque, Rashid V. Williams-García, John M. Beggs, and Gerardo Ortiz A constant bombardment of stimuli drives the brain’s dynamics away from a critical point to a “quasicritical” state. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 126, 098101] Published Mon Mar 01, 2021
  • Author(s): Guillaume St-Onge, Vincent Thibeault, Antoine Allard, Louis J. Dubé, and Laurent Hébert-Dufresne Recommendations around epidemics tend to focus on individual behaviors, with much less efforts attempting to guide event cancellations and other collective behaviors since most models lack the higher-order structure necessary to describe large gatherings. Through a higher-order description of contag... [Phys. Rev. Lett. 126, 098301] Published...
  • Author(s): Avraham Moriel Glasses, unlike their crystalline counterparts, exhibit low-frequency nonphononic excitations whose frequencies $ω$ follow a universal $\mathcal{D}(ω)∼{ω}^{4}$ density of states. The process of glass formation generates positional disorder intertwined with mechanical frustration, posing fundamental ... [Phys. Rev. Lett. 126, 088004] Published Thu Feb 25, 2021

Tobias, Adam Perriman, and Martin Weik The interaction between proteins and hydration water stabilizes protein structure and promotes functional dynamics, with water translational motions enabling protein flexibility. Engineered solvent-free protein-polymer...
