Topical Group on Statistical and Nonlinear Physics (GEFENOL) of the
Spanish Royal Physical Society celebrates the ninth edition of the
Summer School on Statistical Physics of Complex Systems. It is open to
Master and PhD students and young postdocs worldwide and, following the
concept of precedent successful editions, it will take place from
September 2 to 13, 2019 at Faculty of Sciences building in Universidad
de Cantabria, in Santander. IFCA will host several of the conferences
scheduled at this school, whose organizing committee includes three
researchers from the Institute of Physics of Cantabria.
and Nonlinear Physics have been active and multidisciplinary lines of
research for many years and are established as one of the modern physics´pillars.
They are considered essential tools for the general mechanisms´ study
that explain collective behaviours, whose techniques are applied to all
type of systems, not only physical and chemical but also biological or socio-economics.
Statistical Physics has evolved into a solid body of knowledge that provides an understanding of thermodynamics, collective phenomena, and macroscopic behaviour of many-body interacting systems as a whole. Furthermore, the mathematics tools developed by this area, together with the Theory of Dynamical Systems are of key importance to our understanding of Complex Systems.
