Complex Systems Modeling (CoSMo)

The activity is a collaboration between the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Department of Physics and Technology. The extended group has its own homepage.

Group leader: Sigrunn Sørbye

The research group is devoted to mathematical and statistical modeling of complex physical, biological and socio-economic systems:

  • climate dynamics
  • stochastic and dynamical models
  • epidemiology and ecology
  • non-linear optics and laser physics

The CoSMo group is doing research and is advising master and PhD students within all of these problem domains.
