Exploring the directly imaged HD 1160 system through spectroscopic characterisation and high-cadence variability monitoring

Kavli Affiliate: David Charbonneau | First 5 Authors: Ben J. Sutlieff, Jayne L. Birkby, Jordan M. Stone, Annelotte Derkink, Frank Backs | Summary: The time variability and spectra of directly imaged companions provide insight into their physical properties and atmospheric dynamics. We present follow-up R~40 spectrophotometric monitoring of red companion HD 1160 B at 2.8-4.2 […]

Collective Bayesian Decision-Making in a Swarm of Miniaturized Robots for Surface Inspection

Kavli Affiliate: Radhika Nagpal | First 5 Authors: Thiemen Siemensma, Darren Chiu, Sneha Ramshanker, Radhika Nagpal, Bahar Haghighat | Summary: Robot swarms can effectively serve a variety of sensing and inspection applications. Certain inspection tasks require a binary classification decision. This work presents an experimental setup for a surface inspection task based on vibration sensing […]

Data-driven quasiconformal morphodynamic flows

Kavli Affiliate: L. Mahadevan | First 5 Authors: Salem Mosleh, Gary P. T. Choi, L. Mahadevan, , | Summary: Temporal imaging of biological epithelial structures yields shape data at discrete time points, leading to a natural question: how can we reconstruct the most likely path of growth patterns consistent with these discrete observations? We present […]

Control of flow behavior in complex fluids using automatic differentiation

Kavli Affiliate: Michael Brenner | First 5 Authors: Mohammed Alhashim, Kaylie Hausknecht, Michael Brenner, , | Summary: Inverse design of complex flows is notoriously challenging because of the high cost of high dimensional optimization. Usually, optimization problems are either restricted to few control parameters, or adjoint-based approaches are used to convert the optimization problem into […]

Quantum Many-Body Physics Calculations with Large Language Models

Kavli Affiliate: Michael P. Brenner | First 5 Authors: Haining Pan, Nayantara Mudur, Will Taranto, Maria Tikhanovskaya, Subhashini Venugopalan | Summary: Large language models (LLMs) have demonstrated an unprecedented ability to perform complex tasks in multiple domains, including mathematical and scientific reasoning. We demonstrate that with carefully designed prompts, LLMs can accurately carry out key […]

Mechanics and wrinkling patterns of pressurized bent tubes

Kavli Affiliate: Ariel Amir | First 5 Authors: Cesar L. Pastrana, Luyi Qiu, John W. Hutchinson, Ariel Amir, Ulrich Gerland | Summary: Take a drinking straw and bend it from its ends. After sufficient bending, the tube buckles forming a kink, where the curvature is localized in a very small area. This instability, known generally […]

Criticality in the Luria-Delbrück model with an arbitrary mutation rate

Kavli Affiliate: Ariel Amir | First 5 Authors: Deng Pan, Jie Lin, Ariel Amir, , | Summary: The Luria-Delbr"uck model is a classic model of population dynamics with random mutations, that has been used historically to prove that random mutations drive evolution. In typical scenarios, the relevant mutation rate is exceedingly small, and mutants are […]

The Mass Dependence of Hα Emission and Stellar Spindown for Fully Convective M Dwarfs

Kavli Affiliate: David Charbonneau | First 5 Authors: Emily K. Pass, David Charbonneau, David W. Latham, Perry Berlind, Michael L. Calkins | Summary: Fully convective M dwarfs typically remain rapidly rotating and magnetically active for billions of years, followed by an abrupt and mass-dependent transition to slow rotation and quiescence. A robust understanding of this […]
