The advantage of playing home in NBA: microscopic, team-specific and evolving features

Haroldo V. Ribeiro, Satyam Mukherjee e Xiao Han T. Zeng

PLoS ONE (Accepted, 2016)

The idea that the success rate of a team increases when playing home is broadly accepted and documented for a wide variety of sports. Investigations on the so-called “home advantage phenomenon” date back to the 70′s and every since has attracted the attention […]

Transient superdiffusion and long-range correlations in the motility patterns of trypanosomatid flagellate protozoa

L. G. A. Alves, D. B. Scariot, R. R. Guimarães, C. V. Nakamura, R. S. Mendes e H. V. Ribeiro

PLoS ONE (Accepted, 2016)

We report on a diffusive analysis of the motion of flagellate protozoa species. These parasites are the etiological agents of neglected tropical diseases: leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania amazonensis and Leishmania braziliensis, African sleeping […]

Characterization of river flow fluctuations via horizontal visibility graphs

A. C. Braga, L. G. A. Alves, L. S. Costa, A. A. Ribeiro, M. M. A. de Jesus, A. A. Tateishi e H. V. Ribeiro

Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications – Volume: 444; Pages: 1003–1011; DOI: 10.1016/j.physa.2015.10.102; 2016

We report on a large-scale characterization of river discharges by employing the network framework of the horizontal […]

San Giorgio Prize for Prof. Luiz Roberto Evangelista

Prof. Luiz Roberto Evangelista awarded the prize San Giorgio per Distinzione Accademica, Centro Studi Molisano, Campobasso (Italy). Prof. Evangelista is a physicist and a distinguished academic of international reputation. He was born in Maringa, Parana, Brazil, on March 2, 1958. His great-grandparents were from Molise and arrived in Brazil in the late nineteenth century (1897).


Rural to Urban Population Density Scaling of Crime and Property Transactions in English and Welsh Parliamentary Constituencies

Quentin S. Hanley, Dan Lewis e Haroldo V. Ribeiro

PLOS ONE – Volume: 11; Issue: 2; Number article: e0149546; DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0149546; 2016

Urban population scaling of resource use, creativity metrics, and human behaviors has been widely studied. These studies have not looked in detail at the full range of human environments which represent a continuum from the most […]

Analogies Between the Cracking Noise of Ethanol-Dampened Charcoal and Earthquakes

Haroldo V. Ribeiro, Leandro S. Costa, Luiz G. Andrade Alves, Perseu A. Santoro, Sergio de Picoli Jr., Ervin K. Lenzi e Renio S. Mendes

Physical Review Letters – Volume: 115; Issue: 2; Article Number: 025503; DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.115.025503; 2015

We report on an extensive characterization of the cracking noise produced by charcoal samples when dampened with ethanol. We argue that the evaporation of ethanol causes […]

Unusual diffusing regimes caused by different adsorbing surfaces

Veridiana G. Guimarães, Haroldo V. Ribeiro, Quan Li, Luiz R. Evangelista, Ervin K. Lenzi e Rafael S. Zola

Soft Matter – Volume: 11; Issue: 9; Pages: 1658-1666; DOI: 10.1039/C5SM00151J; 2015

A confined liquid with dispersed neutral particles is theoretically studied when the limiting surfaces present different dynamics for the adsorption–desorption phenomena. The investigation considers different non-singular kernels in […]

Light-Directing Omnidirectional Circularly Polarized Reflection from Liquid-Crystal Droplets

Jing Fan, Yannian Li, Hari Krishna Bisoyi, Rafael S. Zola, Deng-ke Yang, Timothy J. Bunning, David A. Weitz e Quan Li

Angewandte Chemie International Edition – Volume: 54; Issue: 7; Pages: 2160–2164; 2015

Constructing and tuning self-organized three-dimensional (3D) superstructures with tailored functionality is crucial in the nanofabrication of smart molecular devices. Herein we fabricate a self-organized, […]
