  • Workshop “Complex Systems: from Physics to Biomedicine”, 10 maggio 2022, Roma

L’Accademia Nazionale delle Scienze detta dei XL festeggia il socio Giorgio Parisi, Premio Nobel per la Fisica (2021) con un Workshop “Complex Systems: from Physics to Biomedicine” che si svolgerà il 10 maggio p.v. presso il Teatro di Villa Torlonia a Roma, gentilmente concesso in uso dalla Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai beni Culturali.

La necessità di sviluppare nuovi approcci per indagare la complessità dei sistemi naturali e artificiali è uno dei maggiori temi di indagine del tempo presente anche per fronteggiare urgenze sociali e sfide economiche. Per una miglior comprensione della complessità biologica, è necessaria una forte integrazione delle scienze della vita e delle scienze computazionali. L’obiettivo è scoprire i modelli che governano processi fisiologici o patologici complessi.

Durante la sessione pomeridiana ricercatori interessati potranno presentare comunicazioni brevi.
In allegato la locandina dell'evento, contenente la
call for abstracts, le modalità di sottomissione dei contributi e le modalità di partecipazione e registrazione.

  • Boltzmann lecture 2022: Statistical mechanics of metals without quasiparticles, and of charged black holes

The 2022 edition of the traditional Boltzmann lecture will take place online on 21 February at 3pm. Professor Subir Sachdev from Harvard University will hold a lectio entitled “Statistical mechanics of metals without quasiparticles, and of charged black holes”

Abstract: The very successful theory of metals is based upon a Boltzmann equation for electronic quasiparticles. But the “strange metals” found in high temperature superconductors do not have well-defined quasiparticle excitations, which raises the problem of a theory of electrical transport in such metals. In their quantum theory of charged black holes, Gibbons and Hawking applied the Boltzmann-Gibbs ensemble to the Einstein-Maxwell theory, and obtained results for black hole entropy which did not have an evident interpretation in terms of the eigenstates of a quantum Hamiltonian. I will describe progress in resolving these long-standing problems in very different fields of physics using insights from the solvable Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model of fermions with random interactions.

  • Stochastic Resonance 40, Perugia, Italy

Data: 13-15 Sept 2021

In 2021 it is forty years after the appearance of the first paper on Stochastic Resonance. Since then, thousands of papers (WOS: 6,968 records, Google Scholar: approx. 40,500 results) have been published on this topic and Stochastic Resonance is nowadays a popular science paradigm and a widespread research subject.

We would like to take the opportunity offered by this anniversary, not only for celebrating this important discovery, with the scientists that mostly contributed over the years to such a great result, starting from Prof. Giorgio Parisi (Chair of the conference), his co-workers, and the many scientists that pioneered this subject, but

also to celebrate the science of noise that the Stochastic Resonance phenomenon largely contributed to disseminate.

SR40 is an international conference that has the ambition to be devoted to all phenomena associated with noise, in general and to Stochastic Resonance, in particular. In fact, SR40 aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Noise and Fluctuations, providing a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical applications.

Topics to be discussed at SR40 includes:

SR-related (non-exclusive list):

SR modelling in classical and quantum realm

SR applied to devices

SR in biological and neural systems

SR in economics and econophysics

SR in signal analysis

SR in natural phenomena


The science of noise (non-exclusive list):

Noise in nonlinear dynamical systems

Noise in Energy Harvesting

Noise in Epidemics modelling

Noise in Artificial Intelligence
