Quantum spin simulators in diamond (Q-DIM-SIM)

Start date: Jan 1, 2017, End date: Dec 31, 2021,

Quantum interacting systems are at the forefront of contemporary physics, and pose challenges to our understanding of quantum phases, many-body dynamics, and a variety of condensed matter phenomena. Advances in quantum applications, including quantum computation and metrology, rely on interactions to create entanglement and to improve sensitivity beyond the standard quantum limit. In recent years ...

Combinatorics with an analytic structure (CASe)

Start date: Dec 1, 2016, End date: Nov 30, 2021,

"Combinatorics, and its interplay with geometry, has fascinated our ancestors as shown by early stone carvings in the Neolithic period. Modern combinatorics is motivated by the ubiquity of its structures in both pure and applied mathematics.The work of Hochster and Stanley, who realized the relation of enumerative questions to commutative algebra and toric geometry made a vital contribution to the ...

Ergodic theory and additive combinatorics (ErgComNum)

Start date: May 1, 2016, End date: Apr 30, 2021,

The last decade has witnessed a new spring for dynamical systems. The field - initiated by Poincare in the study of the N-body problem - has become essential in the understanding of seemingly far off fields such as combinatorics, number theory and theoretical computer science. In particular, ideas from ergodic theory played an important role in the resolution of long standing open problems in comb ...

Common fragile sites (CFSs) are large chromosomal regions identified by conventional cytogenetics as sequences prone to breakage in cells subjected to replication stress. The interest in CFSs stems from their key role in DNA damage, resulting in chromosomal rearrangements. The instability of CFSs was correlated with genome instability in precancerous lesions and during tumour progression. Two oppo ...

"The deadliest form of human malaria is caused by the protozoan parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, which annually infects millions worldwide.

Antigenic variation is achieved through switches in expression o ...
