Non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, complex systems and complex networks
Monday 29.4. - Wednesday 1.5.
Organizers: Charo I del Genio, Stefan Grosskinsky, Rosemary Harris (QMUL)
The school is organized jointly with the School of Mathematics, Queen Mary, University of London. There will be 4 short lecture series covering topics in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, complex systems and complex networks.
- Tibor Antal (Edinburgh)
- Ginestra Bianconi (Queen Mary, London)
complex networks and their applications
- Tobias Galla (Manchester)
theoretical background on non-equilibrium systems, including aspects of game theory
- Vivien Lecomte (Paris)
Theoretical background on large deviation functions (LDFs). Construction of population algorithms allowing to simulate rare events and evaluate LDFs. Applications to systems presenting a dynamical phase transition (such as exclusion processes and glass models such as Kinetically Constrained Models).
The school is aimed for postgraduate PhD and MSc students. We have a limited number of bursaries for external participants, to apply for one of these please use the registration link below.
Thu 2.5. to Fri 3.5. there is a related workshop on Interacting Particle Models in the Physical, Biological and Social Sciences.
