TCQP at the AAvHF Biennial Conference

Four members of TCQP recently attended the Biennial Conference of the Australian Association of von Humboldt Fellows, in Hobart, Tasmania. Jared and Nicolas gave oral presentations and we all learnt about such diverse topics as the genetics of the Tasmanian tiger and the concept of Evidentiality in linguistics. A welcome reception in Government house, the conference dinner and a visit to the MONA gallery were all highlights.

TCQP on the arXiv - June/July 2015

TCQP has had a series of new papers on the arXiv in the last few months.
These include:

Congratulations to everyone, particularly Caitlin for her first ever paper.

PhD Submission - Tim DuBois

Congratulations to Tim DuBois who submitted his PhD thesis today, entitled "On a Delocalised Oxygen Model of Two-Level System Defects in Josephson Junctions".  This thesis is a circa 130 page triumph of high-precision numerics which has consumed untold hours of both NCI and Tim time.  Tim's thesis has resulted in 5 papers (2 published, 1 in review, 2 in draft) as well as a soon to be published, high-precision parallelised 3D single-particle Schrödinger equation solver.  Congratulations Tim on a job very well done.

Welcome to our new Honours student - Sem. 2 2015

Welcome Tommy Bartolo officially to the TCQP group.  Tommy is know to most after working with Andy last year. This year, he will be working with Jared on magnon-magnon interactions and harmonic oscillator chain models for his honours thesis.


The theoretical chemical and quantum physics research group at RMIT University now has a new web presence.

and there was much rejoicing
