Open Opportunities

Open Opportunities for visitors and volunteers at CCNSD:
We are looking for outstanding volunteers (undergrad and grad students) to help with our toy-projects:

  • Statistical Mechanics of Networks
    The aim of this project is (i) to have a literature review on studying complex networks from the perspective of statistical mechanics and (ii) to do some research on this topic. click here.
  • Paradox of CoarseGrained Entropy
    The second law of Thermodynamics tells us that the entropy must increase with time, except for equilibrium situations, and Liouville’s theorem tells us that the entropy can never change. This paradox is the principal reason why entropy is such an interesting quantity, why the second law is such a remarkable law. In classical statistical mechanics, the number of microstates is actually uncountably infinite, since the properties of classical systems are continuous. If we want to define Ω, we have to come up with a method of grouping the microstates together to obtain a countable set. This procedure is known as coarse graining. click here and here.
  • Multifractality in Music Pitches
    We have shown that some of Bach’s pitch series can be considered as a stochastic process with scaling behaviour. Using the multifractal detrended fluctuation analysis (MF-DFA) method, frequency series of Bach pitches have been analysed. Comparing MF-DFA results of original series to those for shuffled and surrogate series, we can distinguish multifractality due to long-range correlations and a broad probability density function. Finally, we have determined the scaling exponents and singularity spectrum. We concluded that the fat tail has more effect on the multifractality nature than long-range correlations. click here.
  • Wikipedia as a complex system!
