 2018-05-1921:12 [FZJ-2018-03099] Preprint et al Connecting the dots between computational tools to analyse soil-root water relations bioRxiv , (2018) [10.1101/312918] In the recent years, many computational tools, such as image analysis, data management, process-based simulation and upscaling tools, were developed to help quantify and understand water flow in the soil-root system, at multiple scales (tissue, organ, plant and population). Several of these tools work together or, at least, are compatible.

Leveraging heterogeneity for neural computation with fading memory in layer 2/3 cortical microcircuits Complexity and heterogeneity are intrinsic to neurobiological systems, manifest in every process, at every scale, and are inextricably linked to the systems' emergent collective behaviours and function. However, the majority of studies addressing the dynamics and computational properties of biologically inspired cortical microcircuits tend to assume (often for the sake of analytical tractability) a great degree of homogeneity in both neuronal and synaptic/connectivity parameters.

The mechanisms underlying the generation of such patterns are largely unknown. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); External link: Fulltext 2018-01-1814:59 [FZJ-2018-00615] Preprint Meißner, U.-G. Wilsonian renormalization group and the Lippmann-Schwinger equation with a multitude of cutoff parameters The Wilsonian renormalization group approach to the Lippmann-Schwinger equation with a multitude of cutoff parameters is introduced. A system of integro-differential equations for the cutoff-dependent potential is obtained. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2018-01-1814:57 [FZJ-2018-00614] Preprint Meißner, U.-G. Triviality of quantum electrodynamics revisited Quantum electrodynamics is considered to be a trivial theory. This is based on a number of evidences, both numerical and analytical.

By separating one of the D-branes from others and studying the interaction between them, the black hole geometry can be probed.

The calculation is performed with three pion masses, $m_\pi\sim\{310,220,130\}$ MeV. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); External link: Fulltext 2018-01-1813:24 [FZJ-2018-00593] Preprint Berkowitz, E. METAQ: Bundle Supercomputing Tasks We describe a light-weight system of bash scripts for efficiently bundling supercomputing tasks into large jobs, so that one can take advantage of incentives or discounts for requesting large allocations. The software can backfill computational tasks, avoiding wasted cycles, and can streamline collaboration between different users.
