Two languages in peaceful co-existence

Physicists and mathematicians from the University of Santiago de Compostela in Spain are putting paid to the theory that two languages cannot co-exist in one society. Analysing the pattern of populations speaking Castilian, the most common language spoken in Spain, and Galician, a language spoken in Galicia, the North West autonomous community of Spain, the […]

Farmers slowed down by hunter-gatherers: our ancestors’ fight for space

Agricultural – or Neolithic – economics replaced the Mesolithic social model of hunter-gathering in the Near East about 10,000 years ago. One of the most important socioeconomic changes in human history, this socioeconomic shift, known as the Neolithic transition, spread gradually across Europe until it slowed down when more northern latitudes were reached. Research published […]

Understanding behavioural patterns: why bird flocks move in unison

Animal flocks, be it honeybees, fish, ants or birds, often move in surprising synchronicity and seemingly make unanimous decisions at a moment’s notice, a phenomenon which has remained puzzling to many researchers. New research published today in the New Journal of Physics (co-owned by the Institute of Physics and German Physical Society), uses a particle model […]

Pounding particles to create Neptune’s water in the lab

  We know ‘icy’ Neptune is partially comprised of water molecules but until now we have had little means to test how water behaves in the extreme conditions that Neptune presents.   This is about to change as an international group of physicists draw up plans to use the new Facility for Antiprotons and Ion […]
