Complexity Summer School 2013

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)
    biological applications
  • 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).
