Quantitative Modeling of Complex Systems

The research within the Competence Area "Quantitative Modeling of Complex Systems" (CA3) covers a wide range of areas and builds a natural bridge between many research topics, including star formation, how genes control diseases, financial markets, energy meteorology, or computational archeology. It embraces through its techniques the faculty of mathematics and natural sciences, the medical school, and the faculty of economics of the University of Cologne. The Competence Area is closely linked to the Key Profile Area 3: Quantum Matter and Materials (QM2).

The ideas of the Competence Area are central in many coordinated research programs and structures within the University of Cologne. These include, for example, the Collaborative Research Centers SFB 956 (Conditions and Impact of Star Formation), SFB 1238 (Control and Dynamics of Quantum Materials), SFB/Transregio 32 (Patterns in Soil- Vegetation-Atmosphere Systems), SFB/Transregio 172 (ArctiC Amplification: Climate Relevant Atmospheric and SurfaCe Processes, and Feedback Mechanisms (AC)3; Leipzig, Bremen, Köln), SFB/Transregio 183 (Entangled States of Matter), the Cluster of Excellence Cellular Stress Responses in Aging-associated Diseases (CECAD), as well as the Geoverbund ABC/J.

The regular CA3 meetings are open to all interested researchers, please contact the coordinator in case you wish to join.
