Akhlesh Lakhtakia Nanoengineered Metamaterials Group Department of Engineering Science & Mechanics, Pennsylvania State University axl4@psu.edu Presented in the Embryo Physics Course, June 16, 2010 Abstract Sculptured thin films (STFs) are assemblies of nanowires that can be fabricated from many different materials, typically via physical vapor deposition onto rotating substrates. The curvilinear–nanowire morphology of STFs is […]

Jose J Muñoz Laboratori de Càlcul Numèric (LaCàN) Dep. App. Mathemtics III Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Barcelona, Spain Presented in the Embryo Physics Course, May 19, 2010 Abstract A set of equilibrium equations is derived for the stress-controlled shape change of cells due to the remodelling and growth of their internal architecture. The approach involves […]

Ramray Bhat Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy, New York Medical College ramraybhat@yahoo.com Presented in the Embryo Physics Course, April 14, 2010 Abstract BACKGROUND: The skeletal elements of vertebrate embryonic limbs are prefigured by rod- and spot-like condensations of precartilage mesenchymal cells. The formation of these condensations depends on cell-matrix and cell-cell interactions, but how […]

Chris Chetland http://www.kog.co.nz chris@kog.co.nz Presented in the Embryo Physics Course, April 7, 2010 Abstract The problem of how to explain the fundamental nature of organisms for biology commonly falls under two causal systems, mechanistic and teleological. These systems however, fall into fundamental logical problems when put to the test. Many biologists also claim that these […]

Clément Vidal Centrum Leo Apostel (CLEA) Evolution, Complexity and Cognition (ECCO) http://clement.vidal.philosophons.com Clement.Vidal@philosophons.com Presented in the Embryo Physics Course, February 3, 2010 Abstract Modern science has shown that there are two trends at play in cosmic evolution. First, a tendency to produce more order, with the emergence of more and more complex systems, from galaxies, […]
