From Dynamics to Statistical Physics and Back

Nonlinear dynamics and statistical physics are tightly connected fields. This is is especially true when
dealing with problems out of thermodynamic equilibrium, where it is necessary to integrate the
equations of motion to infer the macroscopic behaviour. The connection, however, goes also in the
opposite direction, as the mastery of statistical mechanics tools can help to understand the nonlinear
dynamics of complex systems composed of many dierent elements. The 60th birthday of Prof. Roberto
Livi, who steadily worked along both lines, provides the opportunity to present to an audience of young
researchers dierent perspectives and viewpoints, starting from the development of rigorous
mathematical approaches, and effective simulation techniques, to go towards the introduction of
suitable simple models and the realization of experimental tests. Efforts will be made to provide time slots
for informal exchanges of ideas with young researchers.
