Jock McOrist is an Academic Visitor at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, during the Easter and Summer terms, collaborating with Professor Philip Candelas FRS and Professor Xenia de la Ossa. The research project is part of a long-standing project concerning the relations between heterotic string theory and geometry. They are particularly interested in the […]


Paper of Lorenzo Raspollini and Martin Wolf on L-infinity algebras published in Progress in Physics

The paper “L-infinity algebras of classical field theories and the Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism“, co-authored by Branislav Jurco (Charles University, Czech Republic), Lorenzo Raspollini, Christian Saemann (Heriot-Watt), and Martin Wolf, has just been published in Progress in Physics. The paper is over 100 pages long and it reviews in detail the Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism for Lagrangian field theories […]


Paper of Matt Turner on rotating fluids published in Physical Review Fluids

The paper “The steady flow of one uniformly rotating fluid layer above another immiscible uniformly rotating fluid layer” co-authored by Patrick Weidman (University of Colorado) and Matt Turner has been accepted for publication in Physical Review Fluids. The paper presents an exact solution to the axisymmetric Navier-Stokes equations for both co- and counter-rotating flows in […]
