I'm a PhD student at the CDT in Controlled Quantum Dynamics at Imperial College London. My research is on strong-field and ultrafast physics, and I mostly study tunnel ionization and high-harmonic generation.

Check out my papers - they're nice!

You can also check out my Master's dissertation, "Under-the-barrier electron-ion interactions during tunnel ionization" at arXiv:1307.7329 or on my CDT homepage.

I did my Bachelor's degree in Physics in Mexico at the Faculty of Science at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). I studied quantum optics for my dissertation with Eduardo Nahmad Achar, and I have some nice results on the Jordan-block structure of the annihilation operator (as well as what became the J Phys A paper). You can find it (in Spanish) in the UNAM thesis repository.

@AP-KH A comprehensive edit is coming. On Monday. More comments at this stage are not helpful.

So, in essence, as I said.

comment What is this nested bracket notation?
This was pieced together from the Google results for 'vector-coupled product', but it makes natural sense as it's the only wavefunction with the required quantum numbers (well defined angular momentum for each individual particle, total angular momentum, and total magnetic quantum number).

comment Charging by induction and capacitors
Without diagrams is rather hard to know what you're describing.

comment Can a GPS system detect the decline in the rotational velocity of the Earth?
If what you want is to measure the length of the stellar day in SI seconds, you are probably better off simply looking up. That is, doing careful ground-based astronomical observations coupled with a stable enough atomic clock.

comment Why does the Dirac equation require matrices to be rotationally invariant?
The introduction of spinor degrees of freedom forces you to use the appropriate spinor representation of the Lorentz group. This transforms both the states and the operators and should be done with due care. See your favourite QFT textbook for details!

The best resource for MathJax is probably the tutorial MathJax basic tutorial and quick reference over on Mathematics Stack Exchange.
