Out of equilibrium and nonlinear physics

Physique non-linéaire et hors-équilibre (NLPhys)

Nonlinear physics is a discipline that takes its roots from the work of Henri Poincaré in the 19th century. It has been developed in the 1960s through the observation, the development of dynamical systems theory and numerical experimentation. It is a multidisciplinary science that has many fields of application. A common denominator in these fields is the use of concepts of instability, bifurcations, excitability, chaos and the emergence of complex dissipative structures. Our research team is currently developing the following research topics: Biophysics, Optical-non-linear, hydrodynamic and Crystal growth.
