Pushing the limits of the reaction-coordinate mapping (2019)
Journal Article
Correa, L. A., Xu, B., Morris, B., & Adesso, G. (2019). Pushing the limits of the reaction-coordinate mapping. Journal of Chemical Physics, 151(9), https://doi.org/10.1063/1.5114690

The reaction-coordinate mapping is a useful technique to study complex quantum dissipative dynamics into structured environments. In essence, it aims to mimic the original problem by means of an “augmented system,” which includes a suitably chosen co... Read More about Pushing the limits of the reaction-coordinate mapping.

Too little, too late? Brexit Day, transitional periods and the implications of MIB v Lewis (2019)
Journal Article
Mason, J., & Ferris, K. (in press). Too little, too late? Brexit Day, transitional periods and the implications of MIB v Lewis. European Law Review,

For several decades the UK has been in breach of key aspects of the Motor Vehicle Insurance Directives (MVID). This has been observed through academic commentary and confirmed in successful state liability claims. There has also been a manifestly inc... Read More about Too little, too late?

Extendibility of bosonic Gaussian states (2019)
Journal Article
Lami, L., Khatri, S., Adesso, G., & M. Wilde, M. (2019). Extendibility of bosonic Gaussian states. Physical Review Letters, 123(5), https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevLett.123.050501

Extendibility of bosonic Gaussian states is a key issue in continuous-variable quantum information. We show that a bosonic Gaussian state is k-extendible if and only if it has a Gaussian k-extension, and we derive a simple semidefinite program, whose...

Slow travelling wave solutions of the nonlocal Fisher-KPP equation (2019)
Journal Article
BILLINGHAM, J. Slow travelling wave solutions of the nonlocal Fisher-KPP equation. Manuscript submitted for publication

We study travelling wave solutions, $u \equiv U(x-ct)$, of the nonlocal Fisher-KPP equation in one spatial dimension, \[ u_t = D u_{xx} + u\left(1 - \phi * u\right), \] with $D \ll 1$ and $c \ll 1$, where $\phi * u$ is the spatial convolution of...

Spontaneous scalarization is a mechanism that endows relativistic stars and black holes with a nontrivial configuration only when their spacetime curvature exceeds some threshold. The standard way to trigger spontaneous scalarization is via a tachyon... Read More about Spontaneous scalarization in generalized scalar-tensor theory.

In recent years there has been a surge of interest in what has come to be known as the “universal relations” between various global properties of neutron stars. These universal relations are equation of state independent relations between quantities... Read More about Multipole moments and universal relations for scalarized neutron stars.

A dam-break driven by a moving source: a simple model for a powder snow avalanche (2019)

We study the two-dimensional, irrotational flow of an inviscid, incompressible fluid injected from a line source moving at constant speed along a horizontal boundary, into a second, immiscible, inviscid fluid of lower density. A semi-infinite, horizo... Read More about A dam-break driven by a moving source: a simple model for a powder snow avalanche.

Operational advantage of quantum resources in subchannel discrimination (2019)

One of the central problems in the study of quantum resource theories is to provide a given resource with an operational meaning, characterizing physical tasks in which the resource can give an explicit advantage over all resourceless states. We show... Read More about Operational advantage of quantum resources in subchannel discrimination.

A core mechanism for specifying root vascular pattern can replicate the anatomical variation seen in diverse plant species (2019)
Journal Article

Pattern formation is typically controlled through the interaction between molecular signals within a given tissue.

Rost nilpotence and free theories (2018)
Journal Article

We introduce coherent cohomology theories h_* and prove that if such a theory is moreover generically constant then the Rost nilpotence principle holds for projective homogeneous varieties in the category of h_*-motives. Examples of such theories are... Read More about Rost nilpotence and free theories.
