The international Master « Physics of Complex Systems » (i-PCS) is a two-year French-Italian program (M1 & M2), jointly operated by Universities Paris Diderot, Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris-Sud/Paris-Saclay in Paris, together with Politecnico di Torino, SISSA and ICTP in Trieste. It is possible to join the Complex System master at the M2 level.
The goal is to provide a state-of-the-art research-oriented education in fundamental physics. Complex systems are thereby studied with the tools of statistical physics at or out-of equilibrium, field theory, stochastic processes, dynamical systems, non-linear physics, inference techniques and computational approaches. These systems encompass complex networks, active matter, the interface between social sciences and physics, soft matter, biological systems, complexity in the quantum realm, or questions raised in the context of « big data » and « machine learning ».
You may attend the M1 & M2 international “Physics of Complex Systems” (i-PCS) program, in Italy for the M1 and in Paris for the M2. All courses are delivered in English. You obtain a double Italian-French degree. A small amount of additional integrative exam allow to obtain the engineer diploma of the Politecnico di Torino (Italy).
You can directly attend the M2 year “Physics of Complex Systems” (PCS) in Paris. The first semester is common with the international i-PCS Master. All courses are delivered in English.
NB. It is possible to join the international i-PCS program directly for the second semester of the M1 year, after having spent the first semester in one of the three Paris Universities.
