Diego Garlaschelli Group (Econophysics and Network Theory)
We study the structure, dynamics and physics of complex networks emerging from the intricate interconnectedness of the constituents of large systems.
Introductory lectures Econophysics
Financial markets and their behavior: the newspapers are full of it. You might wonder whether a physicist can discover interesting aspects. In October three introductory lectures start in preparation for the college in the spring of 2010.
Leiden econophysics model tested best by central banks
A full overview of all loans and debts between banks would help preventing a new financial collapse. But banks do not provide this information. An econophysics model by Diego Garlaschelli and collaborators reconstructs the most probable situation and finishes first place in two independent tests.
In the spirit of 'unity in diversity', our objective is to promote insight into and appreciation for the wonder that the same physical laws and mathematical concepts apply to the whole of nature, from the largest to the smallest energy and length scales. We strive for the application of abstract theoretical…
Research in Physics, theoretical (MSc)
The master’s specialisation Research in Theoretical Physics prepares you for a PhD position in theoretical physics. The research entails a broad range of topics including High Energy Physics and Particle Cosmology, Theoretical Physics of Life Processes and Condensed Matter Theory.
Research in Physics, Classical/Quantum Information (MSc)
This master’s programme combines Physics with Data Science. You will learn how physics has its own tricks to deal with big data and how techniques from machine learning and deep learning can be applied to classical and quantum data. The first focus of attention is on classical data, including data mining,…
Royal honour for physicist Jan van Ruitenbeek
On 26 April Professor of Experimental Physics Jan van Ruitenbeek was made a Knight in the Order of the Lion of the Netherlands. He received the decoration from mayor Emile Jaensch in Oegstgeest, where he lives. Van Ruitenbeek received the honour for his services to physics.
Common frame for analyzing complex systems in Physics and Economics
Scientists often need to make sense of complex systems without knowing the important parameters or even without access to all the information. A collaboration of network theorists, including Diego Garlaschelli (IMT Lucca/Leiden), has now published a review article in the inaugural issue of Nature Reviews…
Discovering the physics of banks, the economy and financial crisis
Physicist Diego Garlaschelli co-authored an extensive review in the journal Nature Reviews Physics. Surprisingly, the subject wasn't physics at all, but the networks of banks and other financial institutions, and the way their structure relates to financial crises.
