The Azimuth Project
Jacob Biamonte

Jacob Biamonte (ISI Foundation)


I lead the Quantum Complexity Science Initiative in the Department of Physics at the University of Malta.

My main contributions so far to the Azimuth Project can be found in the network theory series.

Research Interests

  • Network theory, tensor network states, chemical reaction networks, mathematical physics
  • Computational complexity theory, circuit theory and connections to condensed matter physics
  • Quantum algorithms to simulate many-body physics and ab initio chemistry on a quantum computer

Contributed Blog Articles

  • Quantum Frontiers in Network Science - workshop announcement @NetSci14, 2014.

  • Network Theory Part 20 - Dirichlet operators and the Perron–Frobenius theorem. Also available on Azimuth.

  • Network Theory Part 19 - an example of Noether’s theorem and the Anderson–Craciun–Kurtz theorem: a diatomic gas. Joint post with John Baez. Also available on Azimuth.

  • Network Theory Part 18 - reaction networks versus Petri nets; the deficiency zero theorem, Joint post with John Baez, Azimuth blog, 2011.

  • Network Theory Part 17 - reaction networks versus Petri nets; the deficiency zero theorem, Joint post with John Baez, Azimuth blog, 2011.

  • Network Theory Part 7 - a stochastic Petri net from population biology whose rate equation is the logistic equation; an equilibrium solution of the corresponding master equation, Azimuth blog, 2011.

Pages on Chemical Reaction Networks and Network Theory

The following examples illustrate the Anderson-Craciun-Kurz theorem saying that ‘complex balanced’ equilibria of the chemical rate equation give equilibria of the master equation:

I also have other pages in progress:
