Institutes for complex systems (ISC)


1) Mathematical modelling and numerical simulations: molecular dynamics;
nonequilibrium statistical mechanics tools; nonlinear time-series analysis;
analysis of complex networks; dynamics of biosystems (proteins, neurons).

2) Nonlinear optical systems: semiconductor lasers (with optical and
electrooptical feedback).

3) AFM and SNOM microscopy. Confocal and two-photon microscopy.
