The Physical Review Letters publication Properties of Equilibria and Glassy Phases of the Random Lotka-Volterra Model with Demographic Noise (Phys. Rev. Lett. 126, 258301) by A. Altieri, F. Roy, G. Biroli is one of the three selected publications of the week (July 12 2021) highlighted for reporters, see https://info.aps.org/webmail/640833/488626630/4ae382d2b57b6f654b04d935c57982c7363d9e9cd7bb23994457cb23d2bae520
Harukuni Ikeda became Assistant Professor at Gakushuin University, Tokyo, Japan on April 2021, and Gabriele Sicuro became Lecturer at King’s College London from 2021.
The citation notes that Giorgio “has been one of the most creative and influential theoretical physicists in recent decades. His work has a large impact on diverse branches of physical sciences, spanning the areas of particle physics, critical phenomena, disordered systems as well as optimization theory and mathematical physics”. We are honored to have Giorgio as a member of our collaboration.
Ada Altieri will become an Associate Professor at MSC (University Paris VII) in December 2020. Congratulations!!
Beatriz Seoane just started a new tenure track position Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) to lead a project on intrinsically disordered proteins, and Valentina Ros just started a new job as permanent researcher at CNRS, Paris. Congratulations!!
In a work published in Physical Review Letters (2020), D. Khomenko, C. Scalliet, L. Berthier, D. R. Reichman and F. Zamponi show that the density of two-level systems in a glass depends on its stability, i.e. its degree of annealing. In particular, they evidenced a strong depletion of two-level systems in ultrastable glasses prepared with SWAP, a state-of-the-art algorithm.
The work was notably featured in Physics Magazine and Quanta Magazine.
The Simons Collaboration on Cracking the Glass Problem is organizing a webinar series on disordered systems, the glass transition, and related topics. All researchers broadly interested in statistical physics are invited to attend. Information about the program and instructions on how to connect are available at:
This month, work by the collaboration has been reviewed in the Journal Club for Condensed Matter Physics. Haim Diamant describes the controversial experimental and numerical observations on hyperuniformity (or lack thereof) in the assembly of jammed particles.
The Beg Rohu Summer School 2019 edition on “Glasses, Jamming, and Slow Dynamics” featured lectures by collaboration members Ludovic Berthier, Andrea Liu, Gilles Tarjus and Francesco Zamponi. All the lectures have been video recorded and are available on this YouTube playlist
