Normal and Anomalous Diffusion in Soft Lorentz Gases

Engineered nanoscale structures known as artificial graphene exhibit the properties of real graphene but in a setup where it is easy to tune features such as the electronic density, lattice constant, geometry or coupling with the environment. Read more

On reversals in 2D turbulent Rayleigh-Bénard convection: Insights from embedding theory and comparison with proper orthogonal decomposition analysis

In the 1980s, most researchers approached empirical analysis of low-dimensional dynamical systems through the famous Takens embedding theorem, which guarantees that the attractor of any dynamical system can be reconstructed from samples of the values of key variables. Read more

The LML has hired External Fellow Erica Thompson as Principal Investigator of Inference from Models

Erica’s research focusses on subtle issues affecting the use of mathematical models and simulations in aid of real-world decision making. In her own words, Read more
