The inside cover image is a 2D pattern of water surface-tension-confined channels formed on an array of hydrophilic spots (“digits”) surrounded by hydrophobic barriers. This method, called digital liquid patterning (DLP), allows for the formation of liquid patterns of arbitrary and easily variable geometries without the need for the fabrication of new photomasks for every pattern with a different geometry. Further details can be found in article 1300075 by P. A. Levkin and co-workers.

New YIN grant in algorithmics

With a project on efficient and scalable partitioning of large graphs and networks with application, for example, in numeric simulation, YIN supports a collaboration of computer scientists Juniorprofessor Henning Meyerhenke and Dr. Martin Nöllenburg (YIG). The goal of the project is, in a first step, to draw the graph into the plane using force-based layout algorithms, so that geometric and graph-theoretic proximity of nodes relate well to each other. In a second step, fast geometric partitioning algorithms can be used to partition the graph. This combined approach promises better scalability to very large graphs while still yielding high quality partitions.
