Modes propres d'un micro-laser diélectrique ayant la forme d'un stade chaotique.

The core objective at LPTMS is the study and modelisation of classical and quantum systems with methods and techniques of statistical physics. The main thematics are:

  • investigations of complexity due to disorder, chaos and dimensionality,
  • applications to condensed matter physics, solid state physics, mesoscopic physics, and atomic and molecular physics,
  • relations to mathematics, information technology and biological systems, economy, games theory.

 

Topics

  • Condensed matter, quantum fluids, topological defects in electronic systems, ferroelectricity and charge ordering in organic conductors, conducting polymers, coherent transport in mesoscopic networks, Kondo effect and quantum dots, Bose-Einstein condensation, strongly correlated fermions, quantum transport, quantum information.
  • Statistical physics, dynamical systems, extreme value statistics, growth problems, topological aspects, nodes and braids, Brownian motion, integrable models, quantum chaos, thermodynamics of finite systems, number theory.
  • Disordered systems, soft matter, physics biology interface, glasses, optimization, biophysics, information theory, colloids, non-equilibrium systems, granular gases (kinetic and hydrodynamic theory).

Computing facilities

  • A cluster of 156 processors computers with 1-192 Gb of memory per processor.
