Much is known about the geometry of road networks within cities, and how these vary with city size and level of economic development. Less is known about how these structures influence the flows of people and activity within cities, and how that activity in turn feeds back to shape road network geometry. Read more
Since the pioneering work of Wigner in the 50’s, random matrix theory has been playing a crucial role in the understanding of several problems in physics, such as the statistics of nuclear energies, quantum chaos and disordered electronic systems. Read more
The third Science on Screen of the third series was presented by Sandra Chapman (Professor of Physics at University of Warwick), who chose Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove. Sandra described some of the salient features of complex systems, Read more
LML External Fellow Yuzuru Sato has recently reported the experimental evidence of the existence of stochastic chaos in a turbulent swirling flow. Together with co-authors (D. Faranda, B. Saint-Michel, C. Wiertel, V. Padilla, B. Dubrulle, and F. Daviaud), he shows that the experimental attractor can be modeled by a random strange attractor in stochastic Duffing equations. The article is published in Physical Review Letters: https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.119.014502 Read more
LML welcomed 8 project students to the summer school for 4 weeks in July/August. The students came from Cameroon, China, Japan, Israel, Italy, and the UK. For project descriptions and presentations, see Summer School 2017. Next year’s summer school will be announced in early 2018.
Part of what makes LML special is the atmosphere of open discourse that has developed here. Communicating our work, we find, is inseparable from doing that work in the first place.
