Mathematical Physics Research Group Published in Quantum

Finite-Function-Encoding Quantum States,” the results of work done by LVC Mathematical Physics Research Group members Alex Heilman ’19 (physics), Ezekiel Wertz ’18 (physics), and Dr. David Lyons, professor of mathematical sciences, was published in the prestigious peer-reviewed science journal Quantum. This article is joint work with a research group at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna.

Dr. Walko Recertified, Published, and Filmed

Dr. Matthew Walko, clinical associate professor of physical therapy, recertified his Specialist in Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Physical Therapy from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, and created a training video for the Cardiovascular Pulmonary Section of the American Physical Therapy Association. Dr. Walko also presented “The Current Status of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Physical Therapy: An Update of the Description of Specialty Practice,” in The Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy Journal.

Mathematical Physics Research Group Receives $175,000 NSF Grant

Dr. David Lyons, professor of mathematical sciences, received a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for “CQIS: RUI: Entanglement and Applications via Local and Permutational Symmetry earlier this month. The $175,000 grant is the fourth NSF grant received for the student-faculty research conducted by the Mathematical Physics Research Group (MPRG). Dr. Scott Walck, chair and professor of physics, co-directs MPRG and was co-principal investigator on the first three grants with Dr. Lyons.

Four Student Researchers Publish Work with Dr. David Lyons and Dr. Scott Walck

Daniel J. Upchurch ’16 (physics), Mark A. Peters ’17 (actuarial science and mathematics double major), Nathaniel P. Gibbons ’18 (physics and mathematics double major), and Ezekiel W. Wertz ’18 (physics major, mathematics and computer & data science double minor) co-authored an article, Local Paul Stabilizers of Symmetric Hypergraph States, in the May issue of Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical (Vol. 50, No. 24).


They co-authored the article with faculty mentors Dr. David Lyons, professor of mathematical sciences, and Dr. Scot Walck, chair and professor of physics. The paper, which focused on quantum information science, was largely the result of the students’ summer research projects with the LVC Mathematical Physics Research Group.
