Statistical Mechanics centers in Europe

  1. Oct 9, 2012 #1
    Hi all,

    I am thinking of doing a PhD in theoretical statistical mechanics and would like to do it in Europe. I am having trouble finding institutes with a focus on SM or Physics/Mathematics departments strong in the field. Some guidance would be really appreciated.

    Thanks, and best regards.

    Personally, I'd love info on stat mech programs in the UK. There's a chance that we're moving there next year.

    Hi Geezer,

    As far as I can tell, there's a strong cluster at the University of Edimburgh, in the physics department doing fairly applied stuff and simulations of complex systems. I think there's quite a bit going on the more 'pure' side in Cambridge. Hope this helps. Otherwise, anybody knows about the Stat Mech scene in continental europe? Cheers?
