Theoretical studies for experimental implementation of quantum computing with trapped ions
(Georgetown University, 2016)Certain quantum manybody physics problems, such as the transverse field Ising model are intractable on a classical computer, meaning that as the number of particles grows, or spins, the amount of memory and computational ... 
Simulating Fiber Ordering and Aggregation In Shear Flow Using Dissipative Particle Dynamics
(Georgetown University, 2016)We have developed a mesoscale simulation of fiber aggregation in shear flow using LAMMPS and its implementation of dissipative particle dynamics. Understanding fiber aggregation in shear flow and flowinduced microstructural ... 
EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE OF KNIGHTIAN UNCERTAINTY IN EQUITY MARKETS
(Georgetown University, 2015)Market microstructure theory builds on the assumption that the arrival of new information induces trading, because it alters market participants’ expectations of the true price. The bidask spread, which represents ... 
Numerical Studies of Correlated Lattice Systems in One and Two Dimensions
(Georgetown University, 2015)We use numerical linked cluster expansions (NLCEs) to study correlated lattice systems in one and two dimensions. For fermions in the honeycomb lattice, we study its finitetemperature properties and shortrange spin ... 
Non Equilibrium Electronic Transport in Multilayered Nanostructures
(Georgetown University, 2014)Recent advances in strongly correlated materials have produced systems with novel and interesting properties like high Tc superconductors, Mott insulators and others. These novel properties have sparked an interest in ...
