-New Trends in Statistical Mechanics-
to be held at
Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP)
March 14-18, 2005
The Kyoto University Foundation
Yukawa Institute for Fundamental Physics (YITP)
The International Workshop Comlexty and Nonextensivity - New Trends in Statistical Mechancs - (CN-Kyoto) will be held at theYukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP) in Kyoto, Japan (access to YITP).
S. Abe (University of Tsukuba, Japan)
M. Sakagami (Kyoto University, Japan)
Editors: S.Abe and M.Sakagami
All invited papers and some of the oral and poster contributions (the ones accepted by the referees) will be published in the Proceedings of the workshop which will appear in an issue of Progress of Theoretical Physics Supplement.
Aims of the Workshop
There are growing interests in progress of understanding geometrical, dynamical and statistical properties of complex systems. The key concepts underlying them are complex networks, glassy dynamics in quasi-stationary states and nonextensivity. This workshop aims to offer a forum for summarizing the current status of such new trends in statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, and to examine the future outlook of science of complexity. Both fundamental problems and applications of the ideas will be discussed.
Format and Scientific Program
Each day of the workshop will be devoted to invited talks, oral presentations and posters. The program will be fixed after the deadline for registration.
The topic to be covered are:
