Interdisciplinary Challenges in Non-Equilibrium Physics

Non-equilibrium processes play important roles at many length scales, from controlling chromatin interactions within a cell nucleus to governing the collective dynamics of fish schools. "Interdisciplinary Challenges in Non-Equilibrium Physics" will bring together early career researchers working across these scales. By identifying common theoretical insights, computational approaches and experimental methodologies ...

Field theories of Active and Driven matter

When energy is continuously fed into a system the states of matter, large scale structures it can form, and the collective dynamics it undergoes are far richer than for a system in thermal equilibrium. In the last decade, two distinct and separate communities have developed addressing aspects of this problem ...
