Developing mathematical theories of the physical world: Open Access research on fluid dynamics from Strathclyde

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by Strathclyde's Department of Mathematics & Statistics, where continuum mechanics and industrial mathematics is a specialism. Such research seeks to understand fluid dynamics, among many other related areas such as liquid crystals and droplet evaporation.

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics also demonstrates expertise in population modelling & epidemiology, stochastic analysis, applied analysis and scientific computing. Access world leading mathematical and statistical Open Access research!

Synthesised from its homonuclear components in the presence of the Lewis base TMEDA, the title heteronuclear alkoxide crystallises in an unsolvated TMEDA-free form; its novel breastplate-like Li4K4O8 cage structure, which undergoes an exchange process in arene solution as determined by dynamic NMR spectroscopic studies, displays a planar K-4 arrangement in marked contrast to the tetrahedral K-4 arrangement found in homonuclear [((BuOK)-O-t)(4)].
