Generalized Statistical Mechanics of Complex Systems

Specific mission

Mission of the research unit is to develop equilibrium and non-equilibrium Statistical Physics and its interdisciplinary applications. Expertise ranking from theoretical physics, Computational physics and Modelling is available. Dissemination of the obtained results is guaranteed by active participation and organization of International Conference on the field, by publishing papers on international journal and by promoting collaborations with universities and industrial customers.
