The Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT) is a laboratory of fundamental research, located in Saclay, about 20 km south-west of Paris.

The research performed at the IPhT aims at better understanding the laws which govern our universe and its organisation. It encompasses most of the great subjects of modern theoretical physics:

The IPhT comprises about fifty permanent physicists (2/3 CEA, 1/3 CNRS), about thirty PhD students and postdocs, assisted by a support staff of about ten people. The IPhT also hosts permanently many short term visitors.

From theoretical physics to artificial intelligence   

imgThe daily financial newspaper Les Echos devotes an article to a former PhD student of IPhT, Ekaterina Retinskaya-Besse, who joined the startup Dreamquark after her PhD (2014) and then founded Dreamup Vision which applies deep learning techniques to retina analysis. Congratulations Katya!

Devil staircases in dimer models

Dimer models appear in different fields of statistical physics (Ising models), in the theory of correlated electron systems (antiferromagnetic insulators and topological phases of matter), field theory (compactified free field) and combinatorics (partitions and "Aztec diamonds"). These models are built from arrangements of "rods" (dimers) that occupy the bonds of a lattice, and which satisfy a hard-core constrain: each lattice site must touch the end of one and only one dimer. In the quantum versions of these models, the dimers have the possibility to move on the lattice (hopping terms in the hamiltonian), and this leads to some rich quantum many-body models, but which study is in general difficult.

In a recent work [1], some theoreticians (IPhT, Paris-Sud University and P. et M. Curie University) have combined numerical simulations (so-called "quantum Monte-Carlo" methods) and analytical approaches (continuum limit and transfer ...
