I'm getting back to work on the book I helped John out with. I want to use this thread to keep track of what's happening.
Normally I use SVN, but for some reason, this created a disaster on the windows based system John uses. Now I've created a dropbox folder for the book.
The issue with dropbox is that it does not have version control, such as SVN which merges changes made by two parties on commit. So in other words, multiple people can't work on the book concurrently, with the changes being merged. The advantage is that it keeps track of the current version, and typically your editor will let you know if the file was changed remotely---which avoids disaster.
As you know, the book covers essentally two topics. The first is stochastic mechanics such as walks on graphs, and the second is reaction networks. I feel that I've made a research contribution to only the first topic, in these papers:
Quantum Transport Enhancement by Time-Reversal Symmetry Breaking, by Zoltan Zimboras, Mauro Faccin, Zoltan Kadar, James Whitfield, Ben Lanyon and Jacob Biamonte. to appear in, Scientific Reports (2013).
Degree Distribution in Quantum Walks on Complex Networks, by Mauro Faccin, Tomi Johnson, Jacob Biamonte, Sabre Kais and Piotr Migdał. in review, PRX (2013).
I need to make a contribution to the topic of reaction networks. Anyway, working on the book is a start towards that.
