Nathan Clisby's homepage

Welcome to my homepage! I'm a mathematical physicist in the Department of Mathematics at Swinburne University of Technology.

Here you will find some details about my research (including lists of possible research topics for students and collaborators, and my publications), and various project pages where you can find interactive applications and visualisations.

Quick links: Google Scholar; visualisation of the pivot algorithm for sampling self-avoiding walks; visualisation of the backbite algorithm for sampling Hamiltonian paths.

18 October, 2021: I've created a howto guide on setting up Google Alerts for detection of contract cheating.

14 January, 2022: I've created a webpage for a symposium in memory of my friend Richard Brak, A Tour of Combinatorics and Statistical Mechanics: In Memory of Richard Brak.

June, 2023: Details of the Swinburne Maths HDR Student Conference .
