SEMINAR: Prof. Serhiy Yanchuk

You are cordially invited to the SCL seminar of the Center for the Study of Complex Systems, which will be held on Tuesday, 9th September 2018 at 15:00 in the library reading room “Dr. Dragan Popović” of the Institute of Physics Belgrade. The talk entitled:

“Emergence of hierarchical clusters in adaptive networks”

will be given by Prof. Dr Serhiy Yanchuk from the Technical University Berlin.


In this talk, we shall discuss the phenomenon of self-organized emergence of hierarchical clusters in dynamical networks with adaptive couplings. Such a process is characterized by a sequential formation of clusters (subnetworks) of densely coupled elements, the size of which is ordered in a hierarchical way, and which are weakly coupled between each other. We demonstrate
that the hierarchical structure causes the decoupling of the subnetworks. Each cluster may display one of the three types of dynamics, namely the splay state, antipodal or doubly antipodal dynamics, and these states can coexist on different scales
of subnetwork sizes.
