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
OK, so it’s not really magic. This cube represents a simple, yet important construct used in many disciplines across the sciences today.
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.
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.
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.
