Maxwell’s demon and Smoluchowski’s trap door
A simulation has been performed to reveal the detailed dynamics and statistical behavior of a Maxwell demon of the simplest kind, a trap door held over by a spring inside a box filled with gas molecules. The role of such ...
A tribological study of double-walled and triple-walled carbon nanotube oscillators
We reported in a previous study that energy transfer from the orderly intertube translational oscillation to intratube vibrational modes for an isolated system of two coaxial carbon nanotubes at low temperatures ...
