Complex systems deciphered by the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics

How do birds manage to generate the multiple and changing shapes that we admire in the sky?

How can a global structure emerge from the units that compose it?

These are the questions posed by the study of complex systems, a science capable of describing global phenomena as diverse as neural networks, climate dynamics, movements of crowds or… starlings.

Giorgio Parisi, Italian physicist and Nobel Prize in Physics 2021, will give us the keys to this in a Public Conference organized by the Institute of Complex Systems of Paris Île-de-France.

The conference will be followed by a debate moderated by Hugues Chaté, research director at the CEA.

After the conference, there will be a signing session for Giorgio Parisi’s popular book Comme un vol d’étourneaux published by Flammarion.

Book: Weapons and Warriors

This book is the result of a symposium devoted to armaments, a theme at the heart of many international researches, but sometimes lacking in visibility. It aims to propose a renewed vision and original approaches for the study of Weapons and Warriors in Europe and the Near East for ancient societies. Through “classic” approaches and the implementation of new methodologies, the various authors open up to military issues, but also more societal issues, such as the way of waging war, the warrior elites, the composition of armies , the status of warrior, soldier, etc.
