Department for Statistical Theory of Condensed Systems

By icmp_admin - Posted on 29 October 2010

 Відділ статистичної теорії конденсованих систем Historically, the first department of the Institute. It was founded in 1969 by I.R. Yukhnovskii as a department of the Institute for Theoretical Physics of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.


Heads of the department:

Igor Yukhnovskii (1969-2006)

Mykhailo Kozlovskii (2006-2017)

Yurij Holovatch (starting from 2018)


Members of the department



Subjects of a research:

Development of analytical methods in the theory of phase transitions; working out the models for description of phase transitions; study of the quantum spin models; new methods of digital treatment of optical information

In 2010 the Laboratory for Statistical Physics of Complex Systems was founded as a part of the department. The research subjects of the Laboratory cover static and dynamic critical behavior of disordered magnets; conformational properties of polymer macromolecules; quantitative social science; complex network science; scientometrics.
