Many complex systems in physics, biology, engineering and economics are characterized by a large number of interacting degrees of freedom, giving rise to a non-trivial collective behavior. The theoretical and computational tools for a quantitative analysis of complex systems are often rooted in modern theoretical physics. The Spring College on the Physics of Complex Systems aims to expose students to a selection of topics at the forefront of research during an intensive, 4-week program. It consists of 5 courses of 9 lectures each, followed by final written tests.
The Spring College is part of the Master program in the Physics of Complex Systems, but it is open to a limited number of well-qualified students at the Master’s and PhD levels. See http://indico.ictp.it/event/8299/ for more details.
Courses and Lecturers:
• Mahesh Bandi (OIST, Okinawa, Japan) Fluctuations and Information in Physical Systems
• Antonio Celani (ICTP, Trieste, Italy) Reinforcement Learning
• Chris Mathys (SISSA, Trieste, Italy) Hierarchical Inference
• Henri Orland (IPhT, CEA, Gif-sur-Yvette, France) Electrostatic Interactions in Soft and Biological Matter
• Gregory Schehr (LPTMS, Orsay Cedex, France) Statistics of Extremes in Correlated Systems
How to apply: Apply online at http://indico.ictp.it/event/8299/ Female scientists are encouraged to apply.
Grants: A limited number of grants are available to support the attendance of selected participants, with priority given to participants from developing countries. There is no registration fee.
Deadline: 30 November 2017
