Matt's arXiv selection

This web page is provided as a resource for researchers in the field of quantum and atom optics.  Every day new papers in the area are posted in the electronic archives available at, mostly in the cond-mat, quant-ph, and physics sections.  There is a significant volume of postings every day which take quite some time to sift through by hand.

Seeing as I do this every week, I now collate the titles and abstracts of the papers that are of interest to my colleagues and I and send a summary email to anyone that is interested.  Typically there are about 35-40 abstracts taken from about 800 each week.


The weekly mailing mostly occurs on Mondays or Tuesdays, and will contain a selection of papers from the past week of postings to cond-mat, quant-ph, and physics archives.  I try to pick up all new and replaced theoretical and experimental papers relevant to ultra-cold Bose and Fermi gases and nonequilibrium quantum systems, as well as some in the area of quantum optics.  This selection is biased by my own interests, for which I apologise in advance but there isn't much I can do about that!  Occasionally I fall a little bit behind, for which I hope you can forgive me for in advance.

How to subscribe

Visit this web page:
