Videos of the workshop "Theoretical and Mathematical Physic in Paris, Singapore and Warwick" now online
Theoretical and mathematical physicists at Cergy, Singapore and Warwick have many common research interests, for example mathematical and computational methods, artificial intelligence, quantum physics in all its manifestations, etc., and potential for future projects for collaboration. In order to communicate these better to each other, we met virtually for a 2-half-day workshop in July 2020 with selected presentations.
Researchers were free to present in-progress projects, talk about completed papers or give overview talks of their research interest. Similarly, PhD and MSc level students were encouraged to present their work, either as a talk or as a virtual poster.
Have a look at the vidoes to see if some of the work would be of interest to you and feel free to contact colleagues in Cergy, Singapore and of course also at Warwick.
Professor Sandra Chapman (CFSA) awarded the 2020 Ed Lorenz Lecture for the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) – which will be one of the world’s largest virtual scientific conferences [1-17 December 2020]. The Ed Lorenz Lecture is given on topics in non-linear physics across all for space and geophysics. Lecture will explore how advances in fundamental physics can help quantify space weather risk.
The LHCb collaboration has announced the discovery of a new particle, which appears to be the first observation of a tetraquark composed of four different types of quark.
Battery life for wearable electronic devices could be improved with design considerations to stress asymmetry clues in cylindrical battery cell formats
Researchers in WMG and the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick have found that asymmetric stresses within electrodes used in certain wearable electronic devices provides an important clue as to how to improve the durability and lifespan of these batteries.
In a work appearing on the cover of Physical Review Letters, volume 125, issue 8, the group of Animesh Datta, with collaborators at the University of Nanjing, China and the University of Ottawa, Canada, have shown that even noisy and saturating detectors can approach shot-noise-limited detection if used judiciously. Shot-noise-limited optical detection is the first, and often the most challenging, step to quantum-enhanced optical sensing. This work uses a technique called weak-value amplification and enables, over a range of input light intensity well beyond the dynamic range of the photodetector, shot-noise-limited detection. Weak-value amplification relies on the principle that only a subset of the photons contains almost all of the information about the sensed object.
An exploding white dwarf star blasted itself out of its orbit with another star in a ‘partial supernova’ and is now hurtling across our galaxy at 900.000km/h, according to a new study led by Boris Gänsicke from the Warwick Astronomy and Astrophysics group, published today in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. It opens up the possibility of many more survivors of supernovae travelling undiscovered through the Milky Way, as well as other types of supernovae occurring in other galaxies that astronomers have never seen before.
