Focus on bimetric theory
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 SchmidtMay, from LudwigMaximiliansUniversität München, to discover why this field is so active and what discoveries she’d like to see.

Peer Review Week: updates since 2016!

Progress on the separability problem of Quantum Mechanics: A Lab Talk
In their recent paper in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical researchers from China and South Korea investigate a Separability criterion for threequbit states with a four dimensional norm. Kyung Hoon Han spoke to JPhys+ to explain more about their… Read More ›

Focus on quantum thermodynamics
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.

Image of the Week: Convergent chaos
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 ›

Scanning Probe Microscopy provides new perspectives for chemistry on surfaces and beyond
In today’s blog, we asked Professor Pavel Jelinek from Nanosurf Lab and Palacky University Olomouc to talk about the focus of his recent Topical Review published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, which details the remarkable recent progress made in the… Read More ›

Image of the Week: Electronphonon relaxation on the Fermi surface of Pb
This week’s image comes from a recent paper by Rittweger et al., published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, in which they investigate the electronic transport properties of facecentred cubic (fcc) bulk Pb in the presence of electronphonon interaction. Using ab initio methods, Rittweger et… Read More ›
