Our papers are the official record of our discoveries. They allow others to build on and apply our work. Each paper is the result of many months of research, so we make a special effort to make them clear, beautiful and inspirational, and publish them in leading journals.

  • The statistical physics of real-world networks

    GCTSFSDGAG... Nature Reviews Physics

    Physics of networks

    Statistical physics harnesses links between maximum entropy and information theory to capture null model and real-world network features.

  • Tackling information asymmetry in networks: a new entropy-based ranking index

    PBP. BaruccaGCG. CaldarelliTS Journal of Statistical Physics

    Information asymmetry

    Network users who have access to the network’s most informative node, as quantified by a novel index, the InfoRank, have a competitive edge.

  • Maximum one-shot dissipated work from Rényi divergences

    NHAGODO. DahlstenVV Physical Review E

    One-shot statistic

    One-shot analogs of fluctuation-theorem results help unify these two approaches for small-scale, nonequilibrium statistical physics.

  • Entropic equality for worst-case work at any protocol speed

    ODO. DahlstenMCDBAGNH... New Journal of Physics

    Worst-case work entropic equality

    A new equality which depends on the maximum entropy describes the worst-case amount of work done by finite-dimensional quantum systems.

  • Physical Review Letters

    Tunnelling interpreted

    In quantum tunnelling, a particle tunnels through a barrier that it classically could not surmount.

  • Physical Review E

    Communities in networks

    A new tool derived from information theory quantitatively identifies trees, hierarchies and community structures within complex networks.

  • New Journal of Physics

    A measure of majorization

    Single-shot information theory inspires a new formulation of statistical mechanics which measures the optimal guaranteed work of a system.

  • Social Informatics

    Scales in weighted networks

    Information theory fixes weighted networks’ degeneracy issues with a generalisation of binary graphs and an optimal scale of link intensities.
