Title: On Exceptional Periodicity and Magic Star Algebras Speaker: Alessio Marrani (Enrico Fermi Center, Rome & Univ. of Padova) Abstract: We introduce and discuss the novel mathematical framework of Exceptional Periodicity and Magic Star Algebras, and highlight its… Read More

Nobel Prize in Physics for 2019 Announced

This year’s Nobel prize in physics was announced! The prize was split between two different ways of studying our Universe. James Peebles was awarded half of the price for his theoretical work in physical cosmology. His ground-breaking work… Read More

Tuesday 1st October : Programmable quantum matter in semiconductor electronics

Title: Programmable quantum matter in semiconductor electronics Speaker: Krzysztof Pomorski (University College Dublin) Abstract: Rapid developments in semiconductor electronics allows achieving the transistors with short channels and it opens the new epoch allowing for design of devices working… Read More

Tuesday 17th September : Anyonic (or Symmetric) Tensor Network States

Title: Anyonic (or Symmetric) Tensor Network States Speaker: Babatunde Ayeni (Maynooth University) Abstract: The focus of my talk would be on a broad class of tensor networks (TN) with a generic type of quantum symmetry: anyonic symmetry. This… Read More

Thursday 12th September : Dissipative Phase Transition in the Quantum Rabi Model with a Structured Environment

Title: Dissipative Phase Transition in the Quantum Rabi Model with a Structured Environment Speaker: Mark Mitchison (Trinity College Dublin) Abstract: I will introduce the super-radiantquantum phase transition in the Rabi model and its dissipative generalisation [1,2]. I will… Read More

Tuesday 10th September : Large Deviation Principles for Bosonic Random Permutations

Title: Large Deviation Principles for Bosonic Random Permutations Speaker: Matthew Dickson (University of Warwick) Abstract: Bosons are quantum particles whose collective wave-functions are symmetricunder the transposition of particles. By using the Feynman-Kac formulae,boson gases can be described by… Read More

Thursday 5th September : Free-Fermion Entanglement and Time and Band Limiting

Title: Free-Fermion entanglement and Time and Band Limiting Speaker: Luc Vinet (Centre de Recherches Mathématiques (CRM)) Abstract: We shall discuss entanglement open finite free-Fermion chains associated with families of discrete orthogonal polynomials and present a simple construction for… Read More

Wednesday 4th September : STP Seminar – Poisson-Lie Analogues of Spin Sutherland Model

Title: Poisson-Lie Analogues of Spin Sutherland Model Speaker: Dr. Feher Laszlo (Wigner Research Centre, Budapest) Abstract: We present generalizations of the well-known trigonometric spin Sutherland models, which were derived by Hamiltonian reduction of ‘free motion’ on cotangent bundles… Read More

Tuesday 23rd July : STP Seminar – Loop measures and isomorphism theorems for space-time random walks

Title: Loop measures and isomorphism theorems for space-time random walks Speaker: Dr. Stefan Adams (University of Warwick) Abstract: Loop measures have become important in the analysis of random walks and their applications in mathematical physics and are currently… Read More
