Event Description

Evolution is a combination of randomness and selection, in systems with many interacting degree of freedom, and hence a challenging problem in statistical physics.
In this symposium we will look at the dynamics of evolution in the real world, including data on covid-19, in simplified laboratory experiments,
and in abstract theoretical models, grounded in statistical mechanics.
