In this paper Jeffrey Kuan uses symmetry of quantum groups to prove duality for the two-component asymmetric simple exclusion process. He spoke to Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical as about his Publisher’s Pick Who are you? Jeffrey Kuan,… Read More ›
In a recently published Emerging Talents paper in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical Florian Fröwis investigates Lower bounds on the size of general Schrödinger-cat states from experimental data. Florian spoke to JPhys+ to explain more about Schrödinger-cat-like states. Recent experiments have… Read More ›
It goes without saying that finding answers to questions raised by the Standard Model and General Relativity remains a huge part of theoretical physics. Recent developments in bimetric theory, a topical review published in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical is the second most most highly cited article in the journal from 2016. Here we talk to one of the authors of the review, Angnis Schmidt-May, from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, to discover why this field is so active and what discoveries she’d like to see.
In their recent paper in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical researchers from China and South Korea investigate a Separability criterion for three-qubit states with a four dimensional norm. Kyung Hoon Han spoke to JPhys+ to explain more about their… Read More ›
The interface between quantum information and thermodynamics is currently a very active area. The topical review The role of quantum information in thermodynamics — a topical review, published in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical is the most highly cited 2016 article in the journal. Here we talk to one of the authors of the review, Marcus Huber, from Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information Vienna, to discover why this field is so active and where he thinks it’s heading.
For our image this week we’ve taken an image from Covergent chaos, a recent paper published in Journal of Physics A. Marc Pradas, Alain Pumir, Greg Huber and Michael Wilkinson study the instabilities and convergence of trajectories revealing and commenting… Read More ›
