Here we bring together in one place active research we are engaged in. Much of this takes the form of computational essays which, in our case, are mostly Python-based Jupyter notebooks.
Each post provides a concise overview over a relevant concept which is then followed up with a reference to the corresponding Github repository. Notebooks in Github repos in turn can be opened via Notebook Viewer (nbviewer) to fully appreciate graphs, animations etc. online. Most repos can also be opened in Google Colab which allows for direct interaction with the code.
We are building a community so we’d love you to get involved. You can of course contact us directly - we are very friendly 🙂 . In addition, if you are feeling comfortable with GitHub, then feel free to:
Make suggestions, share ideas and feedback on specific repos by creating Github Issues.
Make contributions directly to repos by first creating your own copy of the repo (otherwise known as a fork) before making changes and then doing a GitHub Pull Request
In this fifth tutorial of the series we add another two state system (TSS) into the mix and, by following the same journey as in tutorial 4, we find that not only is boson emission and absorption possible but also the transfer of energy from one TSS to the other without any bosons being involved 🙀 .
In this fourth tutorial of the series we flex our quantum muscles 💪 and go deep into our fully quantised model of a particle interacting with a quantum field and find that, despite the increased complexity, knowledge from the semi-quantum model of tutorial 2 helps elucidate some surprisingly physics. Instead of the emission of a single large energy boson, we find that it’
In this first tutorial from our nuclear repo, we take an introductory look at the energy inside nuclei by collecting and visualising the latest nuclear “binding energy” data from international labs. By playing around with these energy tables, we are able to answer quesions relating to well known as well as hypothetical nuclear reactions. In particular we focus on alpha decay and ask
In this third tutorial of the series we introducing the idea that the environment (aka the universe) which interacts with our two state system is a giant quantum system that can be described by an uncountably large number of possible states. Such a description is obviously outside the scope of a single notebook and probably outside the scope of a single human mind 🤯 .
In this second tutorial of the series, we introduce a bit more realism into our model two state quantum system by attempting to connect it to the ”outside world”. The real world is of course frightfully complicated 😱 and so we deliberately look at the simplest of models - the world as classical time dependent field.
