Emergent Complexity in Physical Systems

Tobias M. Schneider, Max-Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Goettingen


Welcome to the ECPS group at MPIDS.

We are interested in how seemingly simple physical systems create unexpectedly complex patterns and dynamical behaviour. Examples range from complex laminar turbulent patterns in shear flows to the formation of intricate coral like solids when crystals grow in solution. We study these systems using several aspects of continuum mechanics and transport theory entwinded with dynamical systems methods and large computer simulations. For many projects, we enjoy close collaborations with experimental groups.
