Atmospheric Complexity

The Atmospheric Complexity group uses methods from theoretical physics to describe and model atmospheric processes.

The aim is to capture emergent aspects, e.g. self-organization, that originate from small scales but can impact on larger scales. We use high-resolution simulations and observational data and make simplified, conceptual, models of key aspects of atmospheric complexity. Atmospheric Complexity is funded by a Villum Young Investigator Grant and a European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant. Atmospheric Complexity collaborates with Complexity & Climate at the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT), Bremen.

Complex Physics (MSc level course, Block 1)

In Fall 2018, 2019, and 2020, Jan O. Haerter was teaching the first part of the Master's course "Complex Physics". 

Topics in Complex Systems (MSc level course, Block 1)

In Fall 2017, Jan was teaching part of the NBI graduate course "Topics in Complex Systems", which is aimed at MSc students of physics and related disciplines. The topics I teach include critical phenomena and various techniques to explore them. As a model system, we use the classical Ising model.

Topics include:

Mean field theory, 1D transfer matrix method, Low and high temperature series expansion, Monte Carlo (Metropolis) method, 1D renormalization group method.

This course also includes lectures on complex networks, interfaces, agent-based models, and self organization, etc. (instructor: Kim Sneppen).
