Quantum mechanics is non-commutative probability »

4pm 18 April 2018

Quantum mechanics is traditionally meant to be difficult to understand. I think this is just a scam perpetrated by the physicists, because actually it’s all very simple.

Computing high-quality Lagrangian bounds of the stochastic mixed-integer programming problem »

4pm 5 April 2018

The solution of stochastic optimisation problem in their deterministic equivalent form is intractable, for moderate sized problems, due to the exponential increase in size of the problem with scenarios and with stage number.

From ADE to Fermat curves and beyond: modular invariants for the quantum groups »

3.30pm 3 April 2018

In 1987, Cappelli-Itzykson-Zuber classified the conformal field theories (more precisely their modular invariant partition functions) associated to the sl(2) quantum groups.

The Kato Square Root Problem for Divergence Form Operators with Potential »

1.30pm 3 April 2018

The Kato square root problem for divergence form elliptic operators is the equivalence statement $\norm{\sqrt{- \mathrm{div} \br{A \nabla}}u} \simeq \norm{\nabla u}$, where  $A$ is a complex matrix-valued function.
