Dr. Lyons, Ashely Swogger ’23, and Jess Arnold ‘23 Publish Student-Faculty Research

Student researchers Ashley Swogger ’23 (mathematics) and Jesse Arnold ‘23 (mathematics) have become published co-authors with Dr. David Lyons, professor of mathematical sciences, in an article detailing the results of their summer 2021 research project. Their article, “Local unitary classes of states invariant under permutation subgroups,” published in the top-tier research journal Physical Review A [Phys. Rev. A, 105:032442, 2022], is about the theory and applications of entangled quantum states. With this achievement, The LVC Mathematical Physics Research Group celebrates 20 years of collaborative student-faculty research with this achievement.
