Statistical Mechanics

Methods of statistical mechanics are used to study mathematical models in several applied contexts:

  • Ising models on random graphs, describing interacting agents on a complex network.
  • Disordered systems (spin glasses) as models of socio-economics systems with competitive and cooperative interactions.
  • Non-equilibrium statistical mechanics inspires new computational algorithms (such as the “cloning algorithm”) to measure the asymptotic probability of extremely rare events.
  • Molecular dynamics simulation of non-equilibrium systems.
