    Physics Colloquium

    "Nature vs. Nurture in Complex (and Not-So-Complex) Systems"

    Presented by Daniel Stein, NYU

    3:30 pm, Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Tuesday, April 24, 2018, 3:30 pm

    Hosted by: Rob Pisarski

    Understanding the dynamical behavior of many-particle systems following a deep quench is a central issue in both statistical mechanics and complex systems theory. One of the basic questions centers on the issue of predictability: given a system with a random initial state evolving through a well-defined stochastic dynamics, how much of the information contained in the state at future times depends on the initial condition (``nature'') and how much on the dynamical realization (``nurture'')? We discuss this question and present both old and new results for both homogeneous and random systems in low and high dimension.
