Department for Statistical Theory of Condensed Systems

By icmp_admin - Posted on 29 October 2010

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 (2018-2022)

Maksym Dudka (starting from 2022)


Members of department


Research topics:

  • static and dynamic critical behavior of structurally disordered systems;
  • conformational properties of polymer macromolecules;
  • development of analytical methods in phase transition theory;
  • quantitative approaches in the humanities and social sciences;
  • complex systems and complex networks;
  • scientometrics.
