    • A one-phase Stefan problem with size-dependent thermal conductivity 

      Font Martínez, Francesc (2018-07-02)
      Article
      Open Access
      In this paper a one-phase Stefan problem with size-dependent thermal conductivity is analysed. Approximate solutions to the problem are found via perturbation and numerical methods, and compared to the Neumann solution for ...
    • Beyond the classical Stefan problem 

      Font Martínez, Francesc (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-07-18)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      In this thesis we develop and analyse mathematical models describing phase change phenomena linked with novel technological applications. The models are based on modifications to standard phase change theory. The mathematical ...
    • How cortical waves drive fission of motile cells 

      Flemming, Sven; Font Martínez, Francesc; Alonso Muñoz, Sergio; Beta, Carsten (2020-03-24)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Cytokinesis—the division of a cell into two daughter cells—is a key step in cell growth and proliferation. It typically occurs in synchrony with the cell cycle to ensure that a complete copy of the genetic information is ...
    • Substrate melting during laser heating of nanoscale metal films 

      Font Martínez, Francesc (2017-10-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      We investigate heat transfer mechanisms relevant to metal films of nanoscale thickness deposited on a silicon (Si) substrate coated by a silicon oxide (SiO2) layer and exposed to laser irradiation. Such a setup is commonly ...
