The role of structures in collective processes. social dynamics and molecular self-assembly
In this thesis we study the dynamics of social systems and molecular monolayers employing tools of statistical physics. In both cases the topological structure underlying the interactions turns out to be the key element in the emergence of collective macroscopic phenomena from the synergy of the individual interactions.

Abstract

In this thesis we study the dynamics of social systems and molecular monolayers employing tools of statistical physics. In both cases the topological structure underlying the interactions turns out to be the key element in the emergence of collective macroscopic phenomena from the synergy of the individual interactions.
