Search for planetary remains and new mathematical concepts at University of Warwick receive over €4 million European research funding
Scientists at the University of Warwick are to benefit from a total of over €4 million funding to support new projects that will aim to find and analyse the remains of planets around nearby dead stars, and to find new ways of incorporating the ideas of combinatorics into different areas of mathematics.
Astronomers have found evidence that the first exoplanet that was identified transiting its star could have migrated to a close orbit with its star from its original birthplace further away.
Search for strange Skyrmion phenomenon fails but finds even stranger magnetic beaded necklace with computer memory storage possibilities
Physicists on the hunt for a rarely seen magnetic spin texture have discovered another object that bears its hallmarks, hidden in the structure of ultra-thin magnetic films, that they have called an incommensurate spin crystal. A team from the University of Warwick reports the findings in the journal Nature Communications, which could offer new possibilities for technologies such as computer memory and storage.
Algorithms inspired by social networks reveal lifecycle of substorms, a key element of space weather
Space weather often manifests as substorms, where a beautiful auroral display such as the Northern Lights is accompanied by an electrical current in space which has effects at earth that can interfere with and damage power distribution and electrical systems. Now, the lifecycle of these auroral substorms has been revealed using social media-inspired mathematical tools to analyse space weather observations across the Earth’s surface.
University of Warwick scientists set to tackle big data challenge of next-generation physics experiments
Physicists at the University of Warwick are among scientists developing vital software to exploit the large data sets collected by the next-generation experiments in high energy physics (HEP), predominantly those at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
