Welcome to the web pages of the Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division (SNPD). The SNPD is a division of the European Physical Society (EPS) that represents and provides a forum for scientists interested in statistical and nonlinear physics, complex systems and interdisciplinary applications (pictures courtesy of P. Manneville and A.-L. Barabasi).

List of  Board members of SNPD


The objective of the Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division (SNPD) is the advancement of research in statistical and nonlinear physics, the dissemination of key results in this area to the general public, and the promotion and coordination of interdisciplinary research. More specifically, the SNPD aims to form an umbrella organization for coordination of research in statistical physics, nonlinear physics, complex systems and interdisciplinary applications and 

  • to promote studies and dissemination in this general research area
  • to facilitate contacts between members
  • to encourage collaboration and exchange of knowledge between different disciplines
  • to stimulate the interest of young scientists in the field of statistical physics, nonlinear physics, and complex systems
  • to organize and support conferences and workshops
  • to maintain contacts with related divisions within EPS
  • to communicate with similar organizations worldwide

Areas of research

Research areas represented by the division include (but are not restricted to)

  • nonequilibrium statistical physics .
  • complex networks
  • nonlinear dynamical system
  • chaos and turbulence
  • stochastic modelling
  • spin glasses and disordered quantum systems
  • pattern formation
  • long-range interacting systems
  • phase transitions and critical phenomena
  • interdisciplinary applications in physics, biology, economics, and social sciences

Conference highlights

  • Statphys26 will take place in Lyon 18-22 July 2016 and is sponsored by EPS as a Europhysics conference. The board of SNPD will have its next board meeting in Lyon on the occasion of Statphys26.
  • Dynamics of Complex Systems is yet another Europhysics conference organized by the Division and this will take place in Warwick 18-20 May 2016.
