Modern molecular sciences make extensive use of computational methods and theoretical simulations to model and predict the properties of a great variety of systems over a wide range of space and time scales. Coupled to the growing computational power available to researchers, the results of such theoretical calculations produce data sets of increasing size and complexity.
Heat engines are machines that take heat from a hot source, transform part of it in usable energy (work),and dump the rest to a cold source.
Barone is Professor of Physical Chemistry, and he will guide the institution beginning in the fall. Barone was the only candidate for the position, which is chosen by a vote of the entire faculty.
The exhibition, curated by Giorgio Bacci, hosted by Fondazione Palazzo Blu and sponsored by Scuola Normale Superiore, is one of the biggest dedicated to Roberto Innocenti, presenting 100 original plates of one of the world’s most famous illustrators
Astrophysicists have taken a major step forward in understanding how supermassive black holes formed. Using data from Hubble and two other space telescopes, Italian researchers have found the best evidence yet for the seeds that ultimately grow into these cosmic giants.
What are the mechanisms that keep the stem cells of an embryo capable of generating every cell type in our organism? A team of researchers in Pisa, Rome, Florence and Cambridge (UK) coordinated by Dr. Federico Cremisi, has just given an answer to this question
