The authors continue their work on computing critical polynomials for the q-state Potts model on the Archimedean lattices, using a parallel version of the improved transfer matrix algorithm to access larger sizes than previously possible.
Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical
‘I have always been keen to understand how the world works at a fundamental level, and consequently have been banging my head for many years against the wall of quantum mechanics, trying to understand what it all means.’
JPhysA Letters are outstanding short papers reporting new and timely developments in mathematical and theoretical physics. They are concise, innovative and high quality. Here are some of our recent highlights.
Teiko Heinosaari is currently a researcher at the Turku Centre for Quantum Physics, University of Turku, Finland. He was recently involved in the organisation of a Quantum ‘Unconference’. Find out what an Unconference is and read about his highlights.
Conferences are a fantastic opportunity for our editors to engage with the community and hear about leading research first hand.
Looking at some of the most downloaded content across the JPhys series of journals.
As we move into the new year, I take a look back at some of the biggest science stories that captured our interest in 2015.
It’s been a busy, exciting, and fantastically successful year for the JPhys+ blog and Journal of Physics series and we’re all looking forward to what the new year will bring.
We’ve picked out some of our best bauble-esque images for this weeks festive post. Happy holidays!
Combinatorics of lattice models: a special issue in honour of Tony Guttmann’s 70th birthday, recognizing the range of contributions made by Guttmann and his collaborators to the field.
First issue of the new volume and we have our first Letter published! Murray Batchelor, topical reviews editor for the journal, delivered his Letter on: Energy landscape and conical intersection points of the driven Rabi model.
Reflecting the interplay between theoretical, mathematical, numerical and computational techniques necessary to unravel the structure of Planet Earth.
A dedicated publishing venue to those researchers working in the interdisciplinary field connecting biology and biochemistry with the underlying physical and mathematical models.
It’s week 45 of 2015. Here’s a look back at some highlights from this time in 2014 including a timely fast-track communication from our board member Paul Fendley and a paper from Satya Majumdar, also on our editorial board written with our Editor-in-Chief, Martin Evans.
Reformulating the graph polynomial method as an eigenvalue problem within the periodic Temperley–Lieb (TL) algebra to access critical points of the Potts model.
IOP Select: Articles chosen by the editors, for their novelty, significance and potential impact on future research. Free-to-view for 1 year.
Just one of the things we’re doing to make sure great science can get to the right people.
