Non-equilibrium statistical physics


Quantum information

Driven complex systems are generically out of equilbrium. We study properties such as entropy production and critical phenomena of non-equilbrium phase transitions (more...)

Recently we started to study certain aspects of quantum theories, including generalized probabilistic theories, decoherence pheonomena and quantum synchronisation (more....)

Epidemic spreading

Neural networks

We study biologically motivated problems such as epicemic spreading and foraging. In particular we focus on long-range interactions by Levy flights (more...)

The picture shows neurons in the cortex of the brain of a mouse. How does such a complex network of neurons work? To this end we study artificial neural networks using methods of Statistical Physics (more...)
