Over the last few years, evolutionary biologists have tagged with short sequences the individuals of bacterial populations, yeast populations, and cancer cells to understand better the eco-evolutionary dynamics that shape their biodiversity, as well as the dynamics that govern microbial communities. A crucial technical stepping stone for understanding these questions is quantifying these...
The field of traditional historical linguistics has long since applied
various techniques for the historical comparison of languages which aim
to reconstruct certain aspects of ancestral languages which are not
witnessed in sources through the comparison of extant language varieties
for which sources exist. Although the techniques are in theory highly
formalized, they are up to now almost...
Topics of this contribution:
- Jupyter notebook as user interface
- reproducibility, interactive documentation
- special feature of ubermag: provides domain specific language (for micromagnetic research) how to express problem, which is then translated into configuration files for the simulation engine automatically
- software engineering
- github actions for CI
- unit tests,...
Ever since the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Physics to J.M.
Kosterlitz, D. J. Thouless and D. Haldane in 2016 for their pioneering
work on topological phase transitions, these exotic phases of matter
have become one of the most sought-after features in quantum materials.
They are of particular interest for their unconventional and
dissipationless transport properties, and are a key...
In this talk I will present the problem of calculating the circular
photogalvanic effect in topological semimetals, a property for
which we would like to study the effects of symmetry breaking of. One
of the approaches explored in this ongoing project, different than in
previous studies, is to evaluate the resulting implicit surface
integrals directly. Previous studies used an...
Syncopy (www.syncopy.org) is aimed to be a completely open source, user-friendly yet powerful data analysis suite for the Neurosciences. It is developed in Python and makes extensive use of distributed computing via Dask, and achieves low memory footprints by using on-disc hdf5 data structures in the backend per default. For our users, we supply highly abstracted frontend functions, which...
