Physics of Complex Systems


The Group gathers transversally researchers working in many different areas of the physical sciences, operating under the common denominator of the Physics of Complex Systems. The main research lines involve the theoretical and experimental investigation of the features of complex systems, such as self- organization, pattern formation and nonlinear dynamics, spatio-temporal correlations, scale invariance, phase transitions and critical phenomena, fluctuations and turbulence, equilibrium and stability. The spectrum of the investigated systems includes complex plasmas, classical and quantum complex fluids, soft matter, stochastic processes, biological systems and ecosystems.
