Complex Systems

The "Complex Systems" group at the Institute for Ion Physics and Applied Physics at University of Innsbruck is investigating the physics of complex dynamical systems.

Our present research topics are theory and computation of nonlinear dynamics, turbulence and structure formation in complex fluids and ionised many particle systems, with a focus on turbulence and transport at the edge of fusion plasmas.
