Professor David M. Edwards


Professor David Edwards was the Head of the Mathematical Physics section
from 1988 until his official retirement in 1999. He is still on the College
staff as a Senior Research Investigator. The main areas of his current research
are
 Theory of nanomagnetism (spintronics),
particularly the switching of magnetization and movement of domain walls
by spinpolarized current.
 Theory of strongly
correlated systems with strong electronphonon interactions as in the manganites.
 Theory of a quantum phase
transition in a simple model with bosoncontrolled hopping of electrons.
