Our research is related to “emergent properties”, i.e., “properties not contained in the simple laws of physics, although they are a consequence of them” (Phil Anderson, 1971, “More is different“).
Our group has openings for graduate students to work on granular matter and complex networks, broadly considered. For an account of the daily routine for students in our lab, see the report of Louis Portal, research intern from France.
Graduate students and postdocs working in our group are expected to be (or become) familiar with the following computing systems. There are also a number of pertinent videos here, by presenters at the NIPS conference.
