Nuclei are at the core of everything in day to day life. Understanding how they work and interact is a fundamental science vital to applications in the real world as well as pure research.
We’ve all heard of antimatter, but there is much more to it than science fiction.
A classic way to think of an atomic nucleus is as a sphere; but this isn’t quite right. Many are deformed, and are stranger than you think.
It’s been a busy, exciting, and fantastically successful year for the JPhys+ blog and Journal of Physics series and we’re all looking forward to what the new year will bring.
Combinatorics of lattice models: a special issue in honour of Tony Guttmann’s 70th birthday, recognizing the range of contributions made by Guttmann and his collaborators to the field.
The resurgence of research in this area is two-fold according to Guest Editors Carlos Vaz and Urs Staub – come find out why.
Reflecting the interplay between theoretical, mathematical, numerical and computational techniques necessary to unravel the structure of Planet Earth.
Errors are everywhere, and everything is uncertain. We must understand and estimate how these affect physics, but how do we do it best?
Reformulating the graph polynomial method as an eigenvalue problem within the periodic Temperley–Lieb (TL) algebra to access critical points of the Potts model.
We talk to a superheavyweight in the field of superheavy nuclei.
This week we bring you a video feature on recent research into new optical fibres and take the opportunity to showcase some top research from across the JPhys series on light and optical technology as part of the International Year of Light. Lasers, invisibility cloaks, plasmas, nanophotonics and more
Highlighting some of the leading research from top scientists and researchers working at Australian institutions.
Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter invites readers to explore recent research developments published in our special section on Knots.
