"Dynamics of Multi-Level systems"

School: 01-12.06.2015 Workshop: 15-19.06.2015

LOCATION: Max Planck Institute for the Physics of

Complex Systems, Dresden, Germany

Applications for participation at


until FEBRUARY 28, 2015.

The emergence of levels is a key feature in a variety of complex 
systems. Experts from different disciplines will discuss current trends 
in the theoretical understanding of multi-level and multi-scale systems 
and present applications from physics and chemistry, sociology and 
economics, ecology and neuroscience.

Workshop topics include


    multiscale methods


    hierarchies in dynamical systems


    physics of information


    self-organization and level identification


    multilevel networks


    coarse graining


    aggregation methods

The school will provide the opportunity to learn key techniques and 
theories from mathematics and physics for dealing with multiscale and 
multilevel systems.

School topics include


    Dynamical Systems with multiple time scales


    Averaging and singular perturbation theory


    Projection methods


    Collective chaos


    Information geometry


    Information theoretic approaches to complex systems
