IX Summer School of the Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Group

The 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. 

Statistical 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
