The distribution function of photogenerated cross-links in thin films of poly(vinyl cinnamate) or poly(vinyl 4-methoxy-cinnamate) is investigated within nonextensive statistics, in terms of the irradiation time of these films with linearly polarized UV light. The scalar order parameter is obtained from the generalized distribution function, and is compared to the measured birefringence for some values of the entropic index q. The exposure time dependence of the nematogen scalar order parameter is plotted, and the effect of the nonextensive formalism on its exposure time dependence is presented.

In this study, the unidirectional ant traffic flow with U-turn in an ant trail was investigated using one-dimensional cellular automata model. It is known that ants communicate with each other by dropping a chemical, called pheromone, on the substrate. Apart from the studies in the literature, it was considered in the model that (i) ant colony consists of two kinds of ants, goodand poor-smelling ants, (ii) ants might make U-turn for some special reasons. For some values of densities of good- and poor-smelling ants, the flux and mean velocity of the colony were studied as a function of density and evaporation rate of pheromone.
