October 18 - October 21, 2001, Toruń ( Torun ) , Poland

Workshop proceedings


The purpose of the CSNSS'01 workshop is to bring together multidisciplinary groups of scientists working on applications of complex systems and nonlinear dynamics in physics, chemistry, mathematics, statistics, sociology, economy and finance. The workshop will be a continuation of the series of similar meetings that took place in Hungary (Matrafured 1995, Tata 1996, Budapest 1997) and in Poland(Kazimierz Dolny 1999, Zakopane 2000) and it is intended to provide a forum to report research, discuss emerging topics and gain new insights into:

  • nonlinear models in physics and chemistry
  • stochastic models of financial markets and option pricing
  • collective character of opinion formation processes
  • tests for determinism and nonlinear models of economical phenomena
  • nonlinear econometrics
  • synergetic and thermodynamical studies of socio-economical systems
  • models of bank bankrupties
  • time series analysis.

A key motivation is to provide a common ground for an open dialogue as well as for reporting research without favouring any particular research constituency nor any specific way of modelling or issue in this area. CSNSS'01 will seek to further the meaningful dialogue and exchange of ideas between physicists, chemists, mathematicians, finance experts, economists and sociologists.

The total number of participants will be limited to about 30-35 persons.
