Highlighting some of the leading research from top scientists and researchers working at Australian institutions.
Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical
With the special issue celebrating Rodney Baxter’s 75th birthday currently underway we list here the publications of Baxter in JPhysA over the past four decades illustrating the remarkable depth and significance of Baxter’s work.
How can the instanton method be used to determine structures in turbulent fluid flows at high Reynolds numbers?
A symmetry-breaking transition from a turbulent to a self-organized state
Exactly Solved Models and Beyond: a special issue in honour of R J Baxter’s 75th birthday. A collection of articles reflecting the on-going influence of Baxter’s work.
A look back over the research highlights of 2015 so far. JPhysA insights offer an opportunity for researchers to get a flavour of work published across the journal that may be outside their areas of expertise.
New Publishers Pick on developing new geometrical tools for dealing with higher order Langrangians
We have recently awarded our 2015 JPhysA Best Paper Prizes. Here we find out more from the authors about their work
JPhysA are now accepting submissions for a new special issue on mathematics for the fluid Earth. The Earth is a rich system in which to study fluid mechanics, non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, nonlinearities and random processes, so we expect to get a very diverse spread of papers within the scope of the journal.
The desire to publish short, high quality papers continues to increase, and so we’ve revised our procedures for our Fast Track Communications. We know how important it is to get the right referees for your paper, and for review times to be as short and painless as possible.
These dragonfly-like patterns are chaotic and quasi-periodic states in a radio-physical oscillator system. In their recent JPhysA paper, Kuznetsov and colleagues have investigated where these dynamics appear in a system that doesn’t have an equilibrium point, where one wouldn’t naturally expect to find this type of behaviour.
In this Publisher’s Pick article, Paul Bressloff and Sean Lawley discuss their latest work in JPhysA, which uses the theory of stochastic hybrid systems to analyse a piecewise deterministic dynamical system and establish a deep connection with the Brownian motion of individual particles.
We interview Dorje Brody, newly appointed to the JPhysA Editorial Board, about his work on the boundaries of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics and mathematical finance.
Christopher Ferrie and Richard Kueng get a chuckle for naming their preprint Have you been using the wrong estimator? These guys bound average fidelity using this one weird trick von Neumann didn’t want you to know. Sadly, the paper doesn’t contain 31 gifs of quantum states that prove you were a 90s kid.
