We are pleased to have David Jennings with us as a new member of the group. David’s research spans a variety of topics in quantum physics, largely from the perspective of quantum information theory. He has been working on structural aspects of quantum theory, quantum algorithms and computation, quantum thermodynamics and...

Dr Robert Purdy, School of Physics and Astronomy, has authored a new book on particle physics. The publication is a comprehensive introduction to particle physics, aimed at third-year undergraduates. There are two versions of the publication, The Fundamentals of Particle Physics, published in the UK, and Particle Physics: An Introduction,...

Our paper on “Generalized pseudopotentials for the anisotropic fractional quantum Hall effect” has recently been published in Physical Review Letters as Editors’ Suggestion. Read more about this work here. 

Dr Jiannis K. Pachos from the Theoretical Physics Group at the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Leeds, is giving a public lecture at the Yorkshire Philosophical Society, Tempest Anderson Hall, this coming Tuesday the 14th of March at 7:30 pm. Can beautiful ideas also be useful? — Decoding...

We are happy to welcome Alexios Michailidis who is joining the group after doing his PhD at University of Nottingham. Alexios is working on many-body localisation and numerical simulations of quantum many-body systems using matrix-product states and tensor networks.
