Physicists at Boston University look to open a window on the universe. An understanding of physics can elucidate everything from how a ball falls to the ground to what the early universe looked like, can shed light on the forces guiding the cosmos and the behavior of subatomic particles. A degree in physics provides the intellectual foundation for applications in engineering, technology, and industry, as well as in training the next generation of scientists at both the high school and university levels.

  • Corrigendum: singularities of the dynamical structure factors of the spin 1/2 XXX chain at finite magnetic field (2015 J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 27 406001) 

    Carmelo, J.M.P.; Sacramento, P.D.; Machado, J.D.P.; Campbell, David K. (IOP Publishing, 2020-02-10)
  • The history of the Center for Nonlinear Studies 

    Campbell, David (2020-10-29)
    I discussed the background of the development of the CNLS at LANL.
  • Frequency dependent functional renormalization group for interacting fermionic systems 

    Campbell, David; Yirga, Nahom (2020-12-09)
    We derive an expansion of the functional renormalization (fRG) equations that treats the frequency and momentum dependencies of the vertices in a systematic manner. The scheme extends the channel-decomposed fRG equations ...
  • A system for probing Casimir energy corrections to the condensation energy 

    Pérez-Morelo, Diego; Stange, Alexander; Lally, Richard W.; Barrett, Lawrence K.; Imboden, Matthias; Som, Abhishek; Campbell, David K.; Aksyuk, Vladimir A.; Bishop, David J. (2020)
    In this article, we present a nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS) designed to detect changes in the Casimir energy. The Casimir effect is a result of the appearance of quantum fluctuations in an electromagnetic vacuum. ...
  • Effect of mediated interactions on a Hubbard chain in mixed-dimensional fermionic cold atoms 

    Okamoto, Junichi; Huang, Wen-Min; Irwin, Kyle; Campbell, David K.; Tsai, Shan-Wen (American Physical Society (APS), 2020-07-10)
    Cold atom experiments can now realize mixtures where different components move in different spatial dimensions. We investigate a fermion mixture where one species is constrained to move along a one-dimensional lattice ...
  • Forward and inverse design of kirigami via supervised autoencoder 

    Hanakata, Paul Z.; Cubuk, Ekin D.; Campbell, David K.; Park, Harold S. (American Physical Society (APS), 2020-10-12)
    Machine learning (ML) methods have recently been used as forward solvers to predict the mechanical properties of composite materials. Here, we use a supervised autoencoder (SAE) to perform the inverse design of graphene ...
  • Mitchell Jay Feigenbaum 

    Campbell, David; Gunaratne, Gemunu; Siggia, Eric (AIP Publishing, 2019-11-01)
    Mitchell Jay Feigenbaum, a theoretical physicist whose inquiring mind and intense focus enabled him to contribute broadly across many fields, died of a heart attack on 30 June 2019 in New York City. Mitchell’s most celebrated ...
  • David Pines 

    Bedell, Kevin; Campbell, David; Laughlin, Robert (AMER INST PHYSICS, 2019-01-01)
    David Pines, a preeminent theoretical physicist and a convener of numerous academic efforts, died of pancreatic cancer at his home in Urbana, Illinois, on 3 May 2018. Over his long and illustrious career, David made major ...
  • Adiabatic eigenstate deformations as a sensitive probe for quantum chaos 

    Pandey, Mohit; Claeys, Pieter W.; Campbell, David K.; Polkovnikov, Anatoli; Sels, Dries (American Physical Society (APS), 2020-10-23)
    In the past decades, it was recognized that quantum chaos, which is essential for the emergence of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, manifests itself in the effective description of the eigenstates of chaotic ...
  • Searching for the Casimir Energy 

    Pérez-Morelo, Diego; Stange, Alexander; Lally, Richard W.; Barrett, Lawrence K.; Imboden, Matthias; Campbell, David K.; Aksyuk, Vladimir A.; Bishop, David J. (2020)
    In this article, we present a nano-electromechanical system (NEMS) designed to detect changes in the Casimir Energy. The Casimir effect is a result of the appearance of quantum fluctuations in the electromagnetic vacuum. ...
