Each year several visitors are hosted for periods ranging from a few days to
The Center is dedicated to promoting nonlinear science by conducting research and training in this interdisciplinary area, by participating in national and international collaborations, and by organizing workshops and advanced courses. Its main expertise is in thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, nonlinear dynamics and chaos theory, stochastic processes, quantum physics, physical chemistry as well as simulation techniques. The tools developed in this framework are applied to the study of complex systems, from chemical kinetics, fluid mechanics and materials science to biology.
