This week the Ig Nobel Prizes were awarded; for achievements that first make you laugh, then make you think. The Ig Nobel prize for physics was awarded to a study On the Rheology of Cats, but these feline house guests… Read More ›
Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical
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 ›
In a newly published Emerging Talents paper in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical Alexandre Lazarescu investigates a Generic dynamical phase transition in one-dimensional bulk-driven lattice gases with exclusion. Alexandre spoke to JPhys+ to explain more about dynamical phase… Read More ›
Here at IOP Publishing we would like to celebrate the birthday of Paul Dirac by highlighting some of the recent papers in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical that were influenced by his work across many areas of theoretical… Read More ›
We talk to Ralph Kenna and Bertrand Berche about their paper on Universal finite-size scaling for percolation theory in high dimensions published in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical. They talk about the importance of percolation in mathematics and… Read More ›
Here at IOP Publishing we are proud to recognize the invaluable service that our reviewers provide the scientific community. To celebrate their contribution, last year we awarded 1391 Outstanding Reviewer awards, and 39 Reviewer of the Year awards across our… Read More ›
Publisher’s Pick: Coleman–Weinberg symmetry breaking in SU(8) induced by a third rank antisymmetric tensor scalar field II: the fermion spectrum
We talk to Stephen L Adler to find out what motivated his recent J.Phys.A paper.
This week’s image is taken from a study Inferring dissipation from current fluctuations as part of the Emerging Talents special issue on Journal of Physics A. Todd R Gingrich, Grant M Rotskoff and Jordan M Horowitz study Markov jumps in… Read More ›
Lisa Glaser discusses phase transitions, non-commutative geometry and how sitting in on a lecture can bring about new ideas as she talks about her recent paper in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical. Who are you? I’m Lisa Glaser,… Read More ›
Last week saw the release of the 2016 Journal Impact Factors from Thompson Reuters, with strong performances across the JPhys series.
In their recently published Emerging Talents paper in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical Stijn van Tongeren and Ben Hoare study Jordanian deformations of AdS5 and supergravity. Stijn has taken the time to answer some questions from JPhys+ to tell… Read More ›
