Due to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the EMMI Workshop and Max Born Symposium - Aspects of Criticality has been rescheduled for 2021. Participants will be notified of further details as they are determined.
The Meeting is organized by the ExtreMe Matter Institute EMMI of the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research, by the DFG Collaborative Research Center “Strong-Interaction Matter under Extreme Conditions”, by the Institute of Theoretical Physics, University of Wrocław, and by the Polish Academy of Sciences, Wroclaw Branch.
The past decades have greatly increased our understanding of how many identical constituents through simple local interactions can produce striking global behavior. The research began in statistical physics, where the study of critical behavior opened seminal new perspectives. Since then, similar problems have come up in many fields, from quark matter to bird swarms. In this workshop, we want to consider several different aspects of such phenomena and discuss possible relations and overlaps.
