Statistical Physics and Complexity Group meetings

About Statistical Physics and Complexity Group meetings

This is a weekly series of informal talks focussing on some theoretical aspect of Condensed Matter, Biological, and Statistical Physics.

This is a weekly series of informal talks on topics relevant in any way to the Statistical Physics and Complexity Group. We are currently running an online webinar series in lieu of physical meetings in Edinburgh due to the corona pandemic. 

Online webinars (active)

This webinar series has been running since April 2020 - see the archive and list of future events for a view of the interesting speakers and topics in the series. The webinar is hosted over Zoom and runs for 60 min including questions.     

To get mailings about these talks, please email Emil Mallmin or Peter Mottishaw.

  • Informal talk on current research interest.
  • Pedagogical talk on something of interest to the group.
  • Group meetings and "getting to know you" sessions when new people arrive.
  • Short updates on a PhD projects (e.g. a few slides followed by discussion).
  • Discussion of interesting or topical paper.
  • Standard "theory club" whiteboard talk.
  • Dry run for conference.
  • External speaker - visitor or specifically invited speaker.
  • ... or whatever people find useful.
