Summer school: Active matter and non-equilibrium statistical physics

August 27, 2018 - September 21, 2018
Active matter constitutes a novel, rapidly growing field, which attracts scientists from very different and independent scientific communities, in applied mathematics, chemistry, physics — from statistical mechanics theoreticians to soft-matter experimentalists —, or biology—from molecular scales up to animals and populations. Recent progress thus emerges from studies that have been performed from very different perspectives and communities. For this school, we have gathered both experts from the subfields that make up the Active Matter community (statistical mechanics, hydrodynamics, soft matter, theory & experiments, simulators) and leading experts in the surrounding field of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, to provide world-class training in the methods that are currently used in and around active matter. The purpose of this school is thus to provide the audience both with a solid training in all the basic methods of non-equilibrium physics and to expose them to the recent trends in the Active Mat
