Statistical Physics and Modeling

The group:

The team, created in 2013, uses the tools of statistical physics and computational modelling at different scales to study questions that range from molecular and nano-scale systems, adsorption and transport in multi-scale porous materials and material science (thermal and mechanical properties) to the statistical physics of complex molecules and the dynamics of biological molecules and tissues. These studies are most often based on numerical simulations of relatively detailed models. Theoretical issues on generalizations of some concepts of statistical physics to nonequilibrium systems are also studied, often in the framework of simplified models.
