The Azimuth Project
Jacob Biamonte

Jacob Biamonte (ISI Foundation)


I lead the theory group at the ISI Foundation in Torino, Italy.

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:
