Research group profile
Our group continuously publishes its results in the best international scientific journals, such as Physical Review Letters or Scientific Reports, and maintains fluid collaborations with different centres in the USA (Center for Nonlinear Sciences, Georgia Institute of Technology, MIT, New England Complex Networks Institute, etc). In Spain we are part of the thematic network DANCE (Dynamics, Non-Chaotic Attractors and Stability), formed by 21 research groups from different national universities, actively participating in the organisation of the Network’s meetings. In Madrid we collaborate closely with researchers from the Instituto de Ciencias Matemáricas, ICMAT and the Autónoma, Complutense and Rey Juan Carlos Universities.

Our research is mainly funded through National Plan projects, such as the project “Classical and Quantum Chaos in Hamiltonian Systems and Complexity”, and other bodies such as the European Commission.

Another relevant aspect of the GSC is our capacity for postgraduate training through the PhD Programme in Complex Systems and the Master in Physics of Complex Systems, continuously producing PhD Theses, several of them with extraordinary doctoral prize and international mention, and favouring international post-doctorates in the centres with which we collaborate. We have also participated in the organisation of International Congresses, Summer Courses and dissemination activities such as Science Week and Researchers’ Night.
