Talat Rahman is a Distinguished and Pegasus Professor at the Department of Physics, University of Central Florida, and section editor of the new Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter section on Physics of Chemical Processes.
We talk to Pawel Caputa and Marek Rams to find out what motivated their recent J.Phys.A paper on the time evolution of entanglement measures.
“Creative projects gave me intuition and insight”: An ergodic generation method for off-lattice walks
Researchers from California develop an efficient, ergodic generation method for off-lattice walks with excluded volume and analyze the effects of thickness on shape and knotting. They spoke to JPhys+ about their recent publication in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and… Read More ›
Recently Journal of Physics A published a special issue titled “an integrability primer for gauge-gravity duality”which grew out of a GATIS Young Researchers Integrability School held at Durham University in July 2015. The issue was made up of 6 topical reviews based on the lectures delivered at the summer school, aiming to provide a pedagogical introduction to integrability, particularly aspects relevant to the AdS/CFT correspondence.
“Often enough the most interesting answers appear when you least expect them” – an interview with Dr Arash Nikoubashman
We caught up with Dr Arash Nikoubashman a young researcher at Johannes Gutenberg Universität Mainz, to discuss his recent work in soft matter and complex fluids and the motivation behind his research.
We talk to Professor Igor Kolokolov about his recent work published in Journal of Physics A.
In their recently published Letter in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical researchers from the University of Adelaide have provided a topological classification scheme for generalized Weyl semimetals. They talk to JPhys+ to tell us more about their research. Who… Read More ›
Publisher’s Pick: Geometric measures of quantum correlations: characterization, quantification, and comparison by distances and operations
Researchers from the UK, France and Italy investigate and compare three geometric measures of bipartite quantum correlations that have been recently introduced in the literature. Who are you? Wojciech Roga is a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Physics of… Read More ›
“Hard work and plain stubbornness often helps a bit in achieving one’s goals”– an interview with Professor Jesper Jacobsen
Jesper Jacobsen is a Professor of Theoretical Physics at École Normale Supérieure and Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris. He works in statistical physics and conformal field theory and was awarded the Société Française de Physique Paul Langevin Prize in… Read More ›
We look back at the articles which were most popular with our readers in the last 12 months.
Our work finds surprising connections between certain mysterious four-dimensional QFTs and a better-understood set of three-dimensional QFTs.
Professor Robert Ziff is a theoretical physicist and Professor of Chemical Engineering at The University of Michigan. He is also a member of the Editorial Board of Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical. He works on a number of… Read More ›
Professor Igor Bray is the head of Physics, Astronomy and Medical Radiation Science at Curtin University. His research focuses on atomic collision theory, and he codeveloped the Convergent Close-Coupling Theory, which is important for unifying the theoretical treatment of electron-atom… Read More ›
Emeritus Professor Risto Niemen of Aalto University, a computational and theoretical condensed-matter physicist, talks about his work, the great outdoors and how computational models are driving materials discovery.
Integral to any of the form of peer review is the reviewers themselves. As part of Peer Review Week, John Inglesfield, a JPCM Board Member and experienced reviewer answered our questions about peer review from a referee’s point of view.
Dr Thierry Dauxois is a theoretical physicist and Director of Research of the Laboratoire de Physique at l’Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon. We talk to him about his career, his work on long-range interacting systems and internal gravity waves and what it is he finds so appealing about the topics he studies.
There has been much discussion over the past years about getting young people, particularly young women, into science and the effect of positive role models on young peoples’ decisions. Three young scientists, discuss how they got to be where they are, the people who played the most influential role in getting them there and what their influence meant to them.
