Modellering ultrarelativistiske tungionekollisjoner

Hovedmålet til tungionefysikken med relativistiske energier er å bevise eksistensen og bestemme egenskaper av kvark-gluon plasma - en form av materie med kvarker og gluoner i likevekt. I prosjektet skal det gjennomføres teoretiske og numeriske studier av viktige aspekter av høyenergetiske tungion...

Shearing particle collisions studied by MD

It is proposed to investigate the response of a liquid bridge to a shearing collision by means of Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. From various fields there is a keen interest in the liquid bridging that occurs as an equilibrium phenomenon between two closely opposed moist surfaces, and MD i...

Gelatinous zooplankton in fjords and coastal waters of Norway, Dr.gr.stip.

Prosjektsammendrag: Geleplanktondyr finnes alltid tilstede i havets frie vannmasse. De forekommer fra overflaten til de største dyp men mengden har sjelden blitt bestemt, grunnet deres ømfintlighet ved innsa0mling og vanskeligheten å identifisere dem fra fangst med planktonet og tråler. Under de ...

The effect of climate on seed renegation strategies: Population-scale experimental tests on four Veronica species

Seeds and seedlings are vulnerable stages in the life cycles of plants, and we expect strong fitness consequences of environmental variability on these stages. Climate has a major influence on vegetation, and in species with wide geographical or altitudin al distributions, the factors and process...

Testing the cost-of-virulence hypothesis: Does a horizontally transmitted parasite have an optimal virulence?

Parasitism is a constant threat to human health, food production and wildlife conservation. Some species, or strains, produce highly lethal diseases while others are benign. Trying to understand the reasons for this variation in virulence is one of the ma jor challenges in epidemiology. In this p...
