TNT  Web Seminars

In collaboration with Angelo Vulpiani from Sapienza we are organizing a serie of web seminars on statistical mechanics and related subjects. Every seminar is recorded on zoom and the style is very informal and friendly (usually, but it is not compulsory, seminars are held in italian).

Presentations on ongoing/published work of the speakers as well as journal-club-style presentations on topics which are simply of interest are welcome.

Topics range from the classical ones, such as non-equilibrium statistical mechanics or the problem of ergodicity-breaking in disordered and/or non-linear systems to the latest applications of statistical physics to problems such as inference or phase transitions in learning algorithms.

Here you can find the video and slides of all previous seminars.
