PERIOD: OCTOBER - DECEMBER
The course intends to introduce a series of advanced methodologies of statistical physics concerning nonlinear systems, both in equilibrium and in dynamic conditions.
The techniques presented have a strong interdisciplinary character and is used to describe physical and non-physical (engineering, natural, social, economic, biological, etc.) complex systems.
Particular emphasis is given to the physical paradigm for understanding the fundamental principles of the theory and at the same time some interdisciplinary applications are considered in order to highlight the versatility of the tools the course intends to provide.

Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
