The U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory has discovered and described the existence of a unique disordered electron spin state in a metal that may provide a unique pathway to finding and studying frustrated magnets.

Using mathematical methods to study complex biological networks

27.06. 2017 Quantum Physics News

Complex biological processes such as metabolism often involve thousands of compounds coupled by chemical reactions. These process chains are described by researchers as chemical reaction networks. Researchers from the University of Luxembourg have developed new mathematical methods to study the energetic properties of these networks. The scientists published their findings in the scientific journal Physical Review X.
