Weak Galilean invariance as a selection principle for coarse-grained diffusive models

Galileo Galilei famously stated the principle of Galilean invariance, which links the equations of motion of closed systems as viewed in distinct inertial frames translating relative to one another at a constant velocity. Read more

Universal behavior of the full particle statistics of one-dimensional Coulomb gases with an arbitrary external potential

Random matrix theory is central to the study of the properties of strongly correlated systems in condensed matter physics and related fields, where important physical quantities are surprisingly well reflected by the joint probability density of the eigenvalues of random matrices. Read more

Intermittent dynamics in complex systems driven to depletion

From earthquakes driven by continental drift to businesses altering their strategies in response to customers’ behaviour, many complex systems exhibit highly unpredictable dynamics, fluctuating episodically between periods of relative quiescence and bursts of activity. Read more
