Complex systems and Complex Networks

Dimitrios Vlachos1

1University of Peloponnese, Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, Greece

Description

This workshop will focus on topics of complexity with special emphasis on complex networks and multiplex networks. Complex networks are studied in many diverse fields, such as mathematics, physics, biology, sociology, economics, and computer science. In recent years, the field has seen a tremendous growth. The session will focus on recent advances in the field and will include both theoretical and applied research in complex systems. Particular emphasis will be given to the interdisciplinary nature of complex networks. A wide range of topics will be covered, such as network structure and dynamics on networks, coupled networks, spreading, synchronization, visualization, algorithms, large-scale data analysis, as well as networks of interest to biology, sociology, computer science, economics, medicine, linguistics, etc.


Geometric integration in physical sciences and engineering

Dimitrios Vlachos1

1University of Peloponnese, Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, Greece

Description

Many differential equations, which are of interest in the physical sciences and engineering, exhibit geometric properties that are preserved by the dynamics. Discrete Lagrangian integrators, as a special type of geometric integration, has been recent interest in developing numerical schemes that preserve as many of these geometric invariants as possible. Such methods are of particular interest for problems that can be described by geometric mechanics, wherein the preservation of physical invariants such as the energy, momentum, and symplectic form can be important when simulating long-time dynamics of such systems. The aim of the session is to bring together researchers in mathematics, computer science, physical sciences, and engineering, who are interested in the broad area of numerical methods (for ordinary differential equations to partial differential equations) that preserve the underlying structure of the governing differential equations.


Computational Nanoscience and Material Science

Dimitrios Vlachos1

1University of Peloponnese, Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, Greece

Description

Computational nanoscience in particular and Computational Material Science in general, are rapidly developing fields providing computer simulational and theoretical background for understanding of nanoscale phenomena and nanotechnology research. Computational nanoscience overarches the whole spectrum of science including biology, physics, engineering, material science and chemistry, describing the behaviour of matter at the scale of individual atoms and molecules. This session will concentrate on novel computational approaches used in nanoscale research, including: Quantum Monte Carlo, Molecular Dynamics, Density Functional Theory, Time-Dependent Quantum Dynamics Simulations, Interaction of Nanoscale Materials and Laser Fields, Quantum Transport in Nanoscale Materials, Multiscale Modeling of Nanoscale Materials, Novel Computational Approaches, Electronic Structure Calculations and Attoscale Dynamics.


Sociophysics - Data and Physical Models of Human Behaviour

Dimitrios Vlachos1

1University of Peloponnese, Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, Greece

Description

Owing to masses of digital real-world data it is now possible to create and validate models of human behaviour. Of special interest are human activities connected to use of Internet - their habits, movements or likings. Simple models, basing on fundamental physical laws and phenomena can be of instant use in this case. The Workshop is also open to new techniques connected to data mining and statistics that can facilitate the process of models' input preparation as well as help to discover new non-trivial phenomena.


Applying the finite element and mesh free methods for mathematical modeling in physical sciences

Dimitrios Vlachos1

1University of Peloponnese, Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, Greece

Description

The finite element method is presently consolidated as very reliable technique used to solve partial differential equations in several areas in science and engineering, like electrical engineering, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Biomedical Modeling, and others. More recently, methods based on domains of influence, instead of finite elements meshes are also developed, like Element Free Galerkin and Smoothed-Particle Hydrodynamics. In this workshop, works related to the mathematical aspects of these methods, as well as, applications several branches of the physical sciences will be presented.


Topics in Mathematical Physics

Dimitrios Vlachos1

1University of Peloponnese, Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, Greece

Description

The knowledge of the Universe as a whole, its origin, size and shape, its evolution and future, has always intrigued the human mind. Galileo wrote: "Nature's great book is written in mathematical language." In this Workshop we aim at collecting some contributions to enforce this statement. All issues which touch upon these ideas will be considered, questions such as: Is our universe finite or infinite? Is the cosmological constant at all there? What drives the acceleration of the Universe expansion? Dark energy, but what is it? What are the different uses of zeta functions and other special functions of mathematical analysis in present day physics? Beautiful mathematics are key in dealing with those questions and in providing the bridge which is crucial to understand (or just describe, modellize) the Universe we live in.


Advanced Stochastic Modeling in Reliability, Survival Analysis and Life Sciences

Dimitrios Vlachos1

1University of Peloponnese, Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, Greece

Description

In this workshop, recent advances in the stochastic modeling and analysis of random phenomena in Reliability, Survival Analysis and Life Sciences are discussed. The main interest is basically to model and analyze the lifetime of items, more generally, the time to occurrence of a random event. Discussions on specific applications (such as optimal maintenance, stochastic comparison, operations research in reliability and survival analysis, life testing and analysis, network reliability, point process modeling and analysis of random recurrent events, etc.) are also welcomed.
