The Laboratory

The Laboratory of Theoretical Physics and Statistical Models (LPTMS) is a joint research unit of CNRS and University Paris-Sud, hosting around 50 researchers. It aims at modeling, qualitatively understand, and quantitatively describe complex phenomena arising in diverse areas of physics and related disciplines (mathematics, computer science, biology, or social sciences). In essence, the effort is in understanding emergent and collective phenomena. The research topics are centered around statistical physics with openings to the physics of condensed matter.
