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.
We chat to Professor James Colgan about his work, his inspiration and the big questions in science.
Part 3: Jesper Lykke Jacobsen ‘High-precision percolation thresholds and Potts-model critical manifolds from graph polynomials’
Professor Dr Lucio Iso answers our questions about his research in soft matter physics and why he believes micro-robots are the future.
Professor Hendrik Schatz talks to us about the field that shapes the understanding of everything we see in the night sky and the planet we live on.
Part 2: Timothy J Hollowood, J Luis Miramontes and David M Schmidtt ‘An integrable deformation of the AdS5 × S5 superstring’
Part 1: David Gómez-Ullate, Yves Grandati and Robert Milson ‘Rational extensions of the quantum harmonic oscillator and exceptional Hermite polynomials’
Paul Hardaker, CEO: “We know well that science benefits the economy and creates jobs. If we are to see these benefits continue to grow we need to remain competitive in funding, and both the UK and Ireland need to be the places where physicists can do world-class science.”
