New York City traffic jams tend to begin with clusters of tie-ups within a network of streets before expanding rapidly and chaotically to surrounding areas, according to a paper published by two professors in the Katz School’s M.A. in Physics.

In the paper, “Cascading Traffic Jamming in a Two-Dimensional Motter […]

Katz School researchers are developing an advanced method for examining how ice crystallizes and how antifreeze proteins inhibit the crystallization process.

Dr. Ran Drori, assistant professor of chemistry in YU’s Stern College for Women and the Katz School’s M.A. in Physics, is  studying the unique ability of ice-binding proteins, or antifreeze proteins, to both […]

A Katz School of Science and Health paper that devises a theoretical framework for studying the quantum origins of flexoelectricity, a phenomenon in which electric charges scatter within a material after it has been bent, has been published in the Journal of Applied Physics.

Flexoelectricity occurs when an ordinary object, which is normally uncharged, is […]

Three Katz School mathematics and physics researchers have developed a theoretical framework for predicting the possible shapes and gravitational fields of asteroids.

The results, published in the international journal Astrophysics and Space Science in March, can be useful for spacecraft engineers developing landing designs for irregularly shaped celestial objects. The research was funded by a […]
