An Active Granular Fluid model shows how cellular activities are coordinated through mechanical feedback
New developments in classical density functional theory
Electronic density functional theory (DFT) will be well known to anyone working in condensed matter physics, especially those trying to predict complex behavior at the atomic scale. However fewer will be familiar with classical DFT.
