Today we are witnessing a new wave of research which is revitalizing Chaos Theory, by finding new applications of the theory in climate science, power-grid planning, and quantum computing.

The school will give young researchers an opportunity to learn about new directions and applications of the theory; it will help them to orient in the multi-facet world of Chaos and plan their research paths in academia. The topics of the school are very relevant to the future professionals in industry sectors such as IT and financial analysis, where the expertise in modelling of complex phenomena is highly demanded.

Lecturers and topics include:

  • Sergey Denisov (Oslo Metropolitan University, Norway): Game-driven dynamics
  • Sergej Flach (Institute for Basic Science, Daejeon, South Korea): Chaos and Thermalization in Many-Body Systems
  • Sarika Jalan (Indian Institute of Technology Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India) : Coupled Kuramoto oscillators on simplicial complexes
  • Sarah Hallerberg (Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, Germany): Critical transitions and their applications
  • Jürgen Kurths (Humboldt University of Berlin and Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Germany): Time series analysis: Exploring and predicting extreme climate events
  • Claudia Lainscsek (University of California San Diego, USA): Delay differential analysis of time series
  • Pedro Lind (Oslo Metropolitan University, Norway): Modelling complex processes with stochastic equations
  • David Luitz  (University of Bonn, Germany):Observing hierarchy of dissipation timescales on IBM quantum computers
