The people in the center of Mathematical Sciences at Plymouth University, who do research into lattice gauge theory, make extensive use of the high performance computers in Dirac (Distributed Research utilising Advanced Computing). DiRAC is the UK’s HPC facility for astrophysics, cosmology, nuclear physics and particle physics
Every year researchers, who use the resources from Dirac, come together for a one day meeting (called Dirac Day) to share research results and experiences. This year Dirac Day is in Exeter.
Craig McNeile is presenting a poster with the title:
Using parallel eigensolvers in lattice QCD calculations
Dr. Nathan Broomhead recently presented his latest research at the Nankai Symposium on Physics, Geometry and Number Theory 2017 in China.
The Chern Insitute is a legacy of Prof. S-S Chern who had the vision of having a symposium at his Alma Mater of Nankai University in the direction of the dialogue between modern mathematics and theoretical physics.
The article below was circulated on the Staff bulletin.
Dr Ben King and Dr Tom Heinzl, both Lecturers in Theoretical Physics, have received the 2016 Editor-in-Chief Choice Award from the journal High Power Laser Science and Engineering (HPL). Their paper Measuring vacuum polarization with high-power lasers (doi: 10.1017/hpl.2016.1) was commended for delivering ‘new and important results’, and the pair have been invited to collect the award and give a talk on their research at the 3rd International Symposium on High Power Laser Science and Engineering in Suzhou, China next year.
