PhD projects in Statistical Physics and Complexity
About Statistical Physics and Complexity
Statistical physics sets out to explain how the patterns and structures around us in the macroscopic world arise from the interactions between their component parts. A major challenge in the 21st century is to extend statistical physics to systems that are far from equilibrium.
