    Our guide to journals

    Our updated handbook of physics, mathematics and general science journals is a unique guide to choosing the right home for your paper.

  • PERSPECTIVES

    Why we must boldly go

    The human impulse to look beyond the horizon, “to boldly go where no man has gone before”, leads us to the most transformative discoveries.

  • Papers

    Going, going, gone

    A solution to the information paradox uses standard quantum field theory to show that black holes can evaporate without violating the laws of physics.

  • Papers

    Quick quantum neural nets

    The notion of quantum superposition speeds up the training process for binary neural networks and guarantees that their parameters are optimal.

  • Projects

    Learning the universe

    Using machine learning methods to search the vast space of Calabi-Yau manifolds for ones that predict the Standard Model from string theory.

  • Events

    Cheers, Brits and Yanks

    Princeton and Caltech alumni celebrate Faraday’s birthday at the London Institute for Mathematical Sciences, inside the Royal Institution.

  • Events

    In search of serendipity

    The London Institute is hosting a lunch at the Royal Institution to promote serendipity between leaders in business, finance and physics.

  • Papers

    Tumour infiltration

    A delicate interplay between the proteins that white blood cells express and the molecules on the surface of tumour cells determines cancer prognoses.

  • Papers

    Beyond classical barriers

    Circuits of memristors, resistors with memory, can exhibit instabilities which allow classical tunnelling through potential energy barriers.

  • Events

    Maths and machines

    Conrad Wolfram describes how two brothers harnessed machines to do mathematics, changing the way we think about computational thinking.

  • Events

    Space-time singularities

    Sir Roger Penrose talks about space-time singularities and cyclic geometry at the Nankai Symposium, after an introduction by Yang-Hui He.
