8 Mishchenko, EugeneResonant finite-size impurities in graphene, unitary limit, and Friedel oscillationsA unitary limit for model point scatterers in graphene is known to reveal low-energy resonances. The same limit could be achieved from hybridization of band electrons with the localized impurity level positioned in the vicinity of the Fermi level. The finite-size defects represent an easier realizat...2012-01-01
9 Adler, Frederick R.Reply:We appreciate the comments of Drs. Craig and Simpson and Drs. Mullins and Schwartz, and the challenge they raise to make MALD more believable, comprehensible, and usable. Acetaminophen (APAP) toxicity is indeed a complex process involving multiple steps. Although the underlying mathematics is more i...2012-01-01

11 Gondolo, PaoloSimple renormalizable flavor symmetry for neutrino oscillationsThe recent measurement of a nonzero neutrino mixing angle θ13 requires a modification of the tri-bimaximal mixing pattern that predicts a zero value for it. We propose a new neutrino mixing pattern based on a spontaneously broken A4 flavor symmetry and a type-I seesaw mechanism. Our model allows fo...2012-01-01
