#Published:"Topological insulators" by Prof. Shoucheng Zhang (@Stanford) http://ow.ly/QbzB3 #OpenScience #OpenAccess #OpenKnowledge
Metals and insulators. The electronic band structure determines the conductivity of metals and insulators. The band theory of solid describes the electronic structure of such states, which exploits the 'discrete' translational symmetry of the crystal to classify electronic states in terms of ...

#Published:Heat kernel expansion in the background field formalism by Prof. Barvinsky (@TSUAB_PR, @CERN) http://ow.ly/Othha #OpenScience
Introduction. Heat kernel expansion and background field formalism represent the combination of two calculational methods within the functional approach to quantum field theory. This approach implies construction of generating functionals for matrix elements and expectation values of physical ...

#Published:"Whisking musculature" by Dr. Sebastian Haidarliu (@WeizmannScience) http://ow.ly/LhDZX #OpenKnowledge #OpenScience
Definition. Whisking musculature is represented by a group of facial striated muscles that have their insertion sites within the mystacial pad and control vibrissa movements in whisking mammals. The role of the vibrissa movements in active rats for equilibration, determining nearness or position ...

#Published:"Coleman-Weinberg mechanism" by Prof. Erick Weinberg (@Columbia) http://ow.ly/POPN1 #OpenScience #OpenAccess #OpenKnowledge
The effective potential. A common example for illustrating spontaneous symmetry breaking is the theory of a real scalar field $\phi$ with a potential of the form \begin{equation} V(\phi) = \frac12 \mu^2 \phi^2 + {\lambda\over 4!} \phi^4 \, . \tag{1} \end{equation} This Lagrangian is symmetric ...

#Published:"Game of Life" by Drs. Izhikevich, Conway (@Princeton) & Seth (@SussexUni) http://ow.ly/OYiFm #OpenKnowledge #OpenScience
The Game of Life (sometimes known simply as Life) is an example of a cellular automaton and a zero-player game. It takes place on an infinite two-dimensional grid in which cells can be 'on' (alive) or 'off' (dead), and is defined by a set of rules that jointly determine the state of a cell given ...

The peer-reviewed open-access encyclopedia.
Introduction
Scholarpedia is like Wikipedia, but by and for scientists and scholars. It has more than 800 peer-reviewed "living entries" by Nobel Prize and Fields Medal winners, with many more in development. The advantage of a separate scholarly wiki is that academics can continue to target their peers with their writing and can get academic credit for their contributions (because their contributions are equivalent to publishing in a peer-reviewed journal).
