Condensation and intermittency in an open-boundary aggregation-fragmentation model

, : Condensation and intermittency in an open-boundary aggregation-fragmentation model. Physical Review Letters 110(15): 150601-150601

We study real space condensation in aggregation-fragmentation models where the total mass is not conserved, as in phenomena such as cloud formation and intracellular trafficking. We study the scaling properties of the system with influx and outflux of mass at the boundaries using numerical simulations, supplemented by analytical results in the absence of fragmentation. The system is found to undergo a phase transition to an unusual condensate phase, characterized by strong intermittency and giant fluctuations of the total mass. A related phase transition also occurs for biased movement of large masses, but with some crucial differences which we highlight.

Bowstringing is a rare complication of trigger finger release caused by excessive loss of the proximal pulleys. As the flexor tendon moves away from the center of rotation of the metacarpophalangeal joint, the flexion moment arm is increased. Thus...
