Title: New States in Complex Systems

Speaker: Adilson Motter, Northwestern University 

Abstract: Complex systems are often described by simple equations which nevertheless can lead to a rich variety of disparate solutions. Discovering and understanding the full spectrum of solutions that correspond to stable states is at the forefront of current research. Recent work by our group and others has presented us with a myriad of stable or metastable states with remarkable properties, which were previously thought to be impossible. In this presentation, I will discuss symmetric states requiring system asymmetry, coherent domains requiring the co-existence of incoherent ones, and states remotely synchronized by uncorrelated media. The presentation will include a discussion of applications and implications for natural and technological network systems.
