Giulio Regeni was a scientist like us. We hope his cruel death may serve to focus our attention on the need to respect human rights.
SISSA, the International School for Advanced Studies, was founded in 1978 and is a scientific center of excellence within the national and international academic scene. Located in Italy, in the city of Trieste, it features about 65 professors, approximately a 100 post-docs and 250 PhD students. Situated on the scenic Karst upland, the School is surrounded by a 25 acre park, and offers a stunning view of the Gulf of Trieste.
The three main research areas of SISSA are Physics, Neuroscience and Mathematics.
Two promising researchers won the Dubrovin medal, established by SISSA in memory of the great mathematician Boris Anatolievich Dubrovin, who was a professor at the School from 1993 until 2019 ...
Thermodynamics provides a robust conceptual framework and set of laws that govern the exchange of energy and matter. Although these laws were originally articulated for macroscopic objects, nanoscale systems also exhibit “thermodynamic¬like” behaviour – for instance, biomolecular motors convert chemical fuel into mechanical work, and single molecules exhibit hysteresis when manipulated using optical tweezers. To what extent can the laws of thermodynamics be scaled down to apply to individual microscopic systems, and what new features emerge at the nanoscale?
PhD position with Eindhoven University of Technology: Machine learning for analysis and control of complex fluid flows
Plenary Lecture | The Neurobiology of Long-Term Memory: Key Molecules, Diverse Cell Types, Temporal Dynamics, and Critical Periods
A seminar by Cristina Maria Alberini of New York University.
A seminar by Ralf Metzler of the University of Potsdam and the University of Edinburgh.
After a brief introduction to the history of Brownian motion Meltzer will address current challenges to the physical understanding of diffusive processes in complex systems.
SISSA Colloquium | Universality and Structures in Natural Language and DNA Sequences (no smoothie, please)
Mirko Degli Esposti of Università of Bologna will present his experiences and results from quantum mechanics and dynamical systems, up to data driven interests in the field of language (natural or artificial) and DNA sequences. As far as language is concerned, he will first of all explore the origin of long correlations in texts and their coexistence with the hierarchical structures of language, also addressing the case of artificial texts generated by deep learning algorithms.
