Researchers from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin fr Materialien und Energie have, in cooperation with colleagues from Dresden, St. Andrews, La Plata and Oxford, for the first time observed magnetic monopoles and how they emerge in a real material. They publish this result in the journal Science within the Science Express web site on Sept. 3. Magnetic monopoles are hypothetical particles proposed by physicists that carry a single magnetic pole, either a magnetic North pole or South pole. In the...

Perimeter Institute Faculty member Jaume Gomis has won an Early Researcher Award from the Ministry of Research and Innovation (MRI) of Ontario. Early Researcher Awards help promising, recently-appointed Ontario researchers build their research teams of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research assistants and associates. The goal of the program is to improve Ontario's ability to attract and retain the best and brightest research talent. The $150,000 award will be used to support Dr....

TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The basis of Christianity is the teachings of Jesus Christ. This is an undisputed fact. While they have been passed through time in many forms and incarnations, the settings and text have remained unchanged. "The Man and a Boy" (published by iUniverse) by Dr. James McBride employs techniques of academic literary discourse to update the ideals and teachings of Jesus to a modern setting. "The Man and a Boy" is a portrayal of Jesus as a teacher, friend...

Quantum mechanics and Einstein's theory of general relativity are both extremely accurate theories of how the universe works, but all attempts to combine the two into a unified theory have ended in failure. When physicists try to calculate the properties of a quantum theory of gravity, they find quantities that become infinite -- infinities that are so bad they can't be removed by mathematical gambits that work in other areas of physics.Now, Zvi Bern, John Carrasco, and Henrik Johanssen at...

A team of researchers working with data from ESA's Integral gamma-ray observatory has disproved theories that some form of dark matter explains mysterious radiation in the Milky Way. That this radiation exists has been known since the 1970s, and several theories have been proposed to explain it. Integral's unprecedented spectral and spatial resolution showed that it strongly peaks towards the center of the Galaxy, with an asymmetry along the Galactic disc. Several researchers have...

WORCESTER, Mass., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Huffington Post -- 'The Internet Newspaper' -- featured today Dr. Robert Lanza's new book (co-authored with astronomer Bob Berman) "Biocentrism." The article by ACT's Lanza explains how life is the key to understanding the universe. The Huffington Post is ranked the most powerful (and most widely referenced) blog in the world. It reaches over 20 million thought-leaders, and has featured celebrity contributors from politics to business and...

Researchers have figured out how to nullify collision effects and make the clock still more precise To accurately measure tiny intervals of time, you need a clock that ticks very fast and very precisely. For the ultimate in accuracy, scientists reach for atoms, or more precisely, an exactly known frequency of light emitted by a chosen atom. The 'ticks' are the crests of a light wave, which rises and falls as many as a thousand trillion times per second. In an effort to improve the already...

University of Nevada, Reno team findings to be published in Physical Review Letters article In a forthcoming Physical Review Letters article, a group of physicists at the University of Nevada, Reno are reporting a refined analysis of experiments on violation of mirror symmetry in atoms that sets new constraints on a hypothesized particle, the extra Z-boson. Andrei Derevianko, an associate professor in the College of Science's Department of Physics, who has conducted groundbreaking research to...

The Large Hadron Collider is an enormous particle accelerator whose 17-mile tunnel straddles the borders of France and Switzerland. A group of physicists at the University of Nevada, Reno has analyzed data from the accelerator that could ultimately prove or disprove the possibility of a fifth force of nature. As the largest science instrument ever built, the LHC has the science community buzzing with excitement as it may help in understanding the inner workings of Nature. Remarkably, some of...

A clock that is so precise that it loses only a second every 300 million years "“ this is the result of new research in ultra cold atoms. The international collaboration is comprised of researchers from the University of Colorado, USA and the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen and the results have just been published in the prestigious scientific journal, Science. An atomic clock consists of gas atoms captured in a magnetic field where they are held stationary with...

Communications in Mathematical Physics
2012-06-04 14:23:51

Communications in Mathematical Physics is a peer-reviewed academic journal published by Springer. The founding editor-in-chief was Rudolf Haag, who established the journal in 1965 with the help of Res Jost. Haag headed the journal for the next eight years, and was succeeded by Klaus Hepp, followed by James Glimm, Arthur Jaffe and the Michael Aizenman, who took over in 2000. The journal publishes papers in all fields of mathematical physics, but focuses particularly in analysis related to...
