Part 1: Silvio Franz and Giorgio Parisi The simplest model of jamming
Since 2009, Journal of Physics A has awarded an annual Best Paper Prize, which serves to celebrate well written papers that make significant contributions to their field.
Today’s Image of the Week comes from a study of A formula for crossing probabilities of critical systems inside polygons. The manuscript is from our Emerging Talents special issue on Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical. Steven Flores, currently… Read More ›
In his recently published Paper in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical Loïc Turban from the Université de Lorraine has provided a study of the 1D classical q-state Potts model. Professor Turban talks to JPhys+ to tell us more about… 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 ›
Electronic density functional theory (DFT) will be well known to anyone working in condensed matter physics, especially those trying to predict complex behavior at the atomic scale. However fewer will be familiar with classical DFT.
Part 3: Jesper Lykke Jacobsen ‘High-precision percolation thresholds and Potts-model critical manifolds from graph polynomials’
Topical Review offering a concise overview of some of the central aspects of incompatibility.
Conferences are a fantastic opportunity for our editors to engage with the community and hear about leading research first hand.
We’ve picked out some of our best bauble-esque images for this weeks festive post. Happy holidays!
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.
First issue of the new volume and we have our first Letter published! Murray Batchelor, topical reviews editor for the journal, delivered his Letter on: Energy landscape and conical intersection points of the driven Rabi model.
Reflecting the interplay between theoretical, mathematical, numerical and computational techniques necessary to unravel the structure of Planet Earth.
A dedicated publishing venue to those researchers working in the interdisciplinary field connecting biology and biochemistry with the underlying physical and mathematical models.
Errors are everywhere, and everything is uncertain. We must understand and estimate how these affect physics, but how do we do it best?
It’s week 45 of 2015. Here’s a look back at some highlights from this time in 2014 including a timely fast-track communication from our board member Paul Fendley and a paper from Satya Majumdar, also on our editorial board written with our Editor-in-Chief, Martin Evans.
Reformulating the graph polynomial method as an eigenvalue problem within the periodic Temperley–Lieb (TL) algebra to access critical points of the Potts model.
