Modeling, Theory and Computation

Our research focuses on: 1. the theoretical and computational study of systems with many interacting constituents, from glasses and spin glasses to soft and biological matter; 2. the physics of random lasing materials; 3. nonlinear, turbulent and complex flows; 4. the quantitative and computational analysis of biological systems, from single-molecules to biological networks and system-level properties.

In addition, we are interested in the development of efficient algorithms for inference and big data analysis.

Complex Flows & Non Linear Time Series Analysis

The experimental study of nonlinear and complex systems relies on the design of specific advanced data analysis tools, which need to be able to identify properties of the dynamics…

Computational Biology

Theoretical methods and mathematical modeling can be applied to investigate complex physical systems that are found in biological organisms. Computer simulations are…

Photonics in Random Media

In recent years, random lasing materials (e.g. powders, porous media, precipitates in solution, or photonic crystals with impurities) have been extensively studied…

Scientific Computing & Big Data

We exploit parallel computing on single and multi Graphic Processing Units (GPU’s) for several problems. In particular, we develop optimised parallel codes for continuous…

Statistical Mechanics

We study disordered and frustrated systems such as spin-glasses, structural glasses and random photonics models by means of advanced methods in statistical mechanical of disordered…

Turbulence in Plasmas

Turbulence is an ubiquitous phenomenon that can be observed on a huge range of scales, from galaxy clusters down to micro- and nano-fluidics. It is observed mostly in neutral flows…

CNR NANOTEC c/o Campus Ecotekne

Torna con un calendario denso di appuntamenti, tra seminari, mostre, dimostrazioni sperimentali, visite ai laboratori  il tradizionale appuntamento con la “Settimana della cultura scientifica”, in programma all'Università del Salento dal 5 al 11 aprile 2017, nato dalle linee guida del progetto ministeriale “Piano Lauree Scientifiche”, al quale l’Ateneo salentino aderisce sin dalla fondazione nel 2003 per i Corsi di Laurea in Fisica e in Matematica.

Oltre millecinquecento studenti attesi dalle scuole superiori di Lecce, Brindisi e Taranto per partecipare agli incontri in programma che si terranno presso le sede del Dipartimento di Matematica e Fisica “Ennio De Giorgi” e il CNR Nanotec.

L’obiettivo della “Settimana della cultura scientifica”, che si aprirà con una giornata interamente dedicata alle Nanotecnologie, è quello di avvicinare i giovani alla Scienza.
