1st online Materials Chemistry Consortium

Originally posted on Centre for Computational Physics:
Yesterday Matt Watkins and Chris Dickens attended the first fully online Materials Chemistry Consortium meeting where a substantial chunk of the UKS national supercomputing time is allocated. Up to 150 attendees were online and things went pretty smoothly. The online setting actually worked really well, there were some…

Seminar on the interactions between gravitational waves and planetary rings

Originally posted on Centre for Computational Physics:
On June 10th Dr Phil Sutton presented his ongoing work on the interactions between gravitational waves and planetary rings. It was discussed that orbital resonances between objects in astrophysical systems is commonplace, with nearby moons creating clear structures in planetary rings. In Saturn’s rings the most obvious is…

Javier Díaz Brañas Awarded IoP CPG Thesis Prize

This year’s 2020 IoP CPG Thesis Prize has been awarded to Javier Díaz Brañas, University of Lincoln. Javier’s thesis, titled Computer Simulations of Block Copolymer Nanocomposite Systems, implemented efficient, parallel code to simulate the interaction of nanoparticles in diblock copolymer systems by developing a hybrid-technique based on Cell Dynamic Simulations for the polymers and Brownian…

Machine Learning in Physics meeting by the CPG

The IoP had an inaugural Physics in the Spotlight event from 21st-25th October 2019, celebrating the move to their new head quarters in King’s Cross with events organised by many groups together. On the 24th of October the Computational Physics group (CPG) hosted a one-day meeting on machine learning applications in physics. This was in…

Seminar on the logic of p value

Originally posted on Centre for Computational Physics:
On Wednesday 22nd of July Dr Fabien Paillusson and Dr Matthew Booth presented their ongoing work on the logic of p value-based reasoning. After reminding that, strictly speaking, p value-based hypothesis rejection could not be grounded in probability theory, they showed that p value-based reasoning can be made…
