Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics

 

ICTP's Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics (CMSP) section investigates the physics of disordered, mesoscopic and strongly correlated electron systems, and performs computer simulations of the atomistic and electronic structure of materials. Because many of the concepts and methods in condensed matter physics have at their core some elements of statistical and nonlinear physics, a
significant amount of research in this section is devoted to statistical mechanics and applications.
