Fundamental physics from galaxy shapesAlex HALL

The Lambda Cold Dark Matter model continues to provide a good fit to a wide range of cosmological data, and extensions to the model are almost all disfavoured observationally. This is troubling since neither CDM nor Lambda, together constituting 95% of the cosmic energy budget, are understood. These dark components ...

A new theory of the universeNeil TUROK

Observations of the universe on very small and large scales have revealed a surprising economy in its basic laws and structure. In this light, we have attempted to find new, more minimal solutions to cosmology’s central puzzles. Instead of postulating a pre-hot big bang period, such as inflation, we ...

Secular evolution of self-gravitating systems

Self-gravitating systems -- such as star clusters, stellar discs, and dark matter halos -- are rich with dynamical phenomena. They exhibit both resonant (long-range) and non-resonant (short-range) dynamics, with unclear transition regimes. The coupling of linear response theory, kinetic theory, quasilinear theory, and N-body approaches for studying self-gravitating systems is now within ...

Algorithms23

Lattice Field Theories are a mature tool that yields robust predictions for precision tests of the Standard Model and potential BSM candidates. Larger volumes, finer lattice spacings and decorrelated configurations are some of the requirements to tame the systematic errors still affecting the current simulations. Improved algorithms, and strong mathematical ...

Complete and partial wetting in active liquidsFrancesco TURCI

Dry and wet layers on a wall are the surface manifestation of equilibrium liquid-vapour phase transitions. Active liquids are disordered nonequilibrium systems that dissipate energy locally, able to produce phase separation in the absence of attractive interactions. We connect the emergent motility-induced separation of model active liquids with effective many-body ...

Topological Soft Matter

Soft materials and complex fluids are a fundamental component of modern industry and everyday life. The majority of the materials around us are made by chemical or physical crosslinking of linear polymers. However, a growing number of groups are exploring an entirely new class of materials with unique properties governed ...
