Research Programme

The IRTG 1740 is an international, Brazilian-German collaboration that studies principles of self-organisation in complex, evolving networks. In order to apply these principles in a practical context, we investigate the influence of heterogeneity in the network structure, multi-scale time delays and stochasticity.

These theoretical studies are intimately connected with the investigation of experimental and natural dynamic networks of increasing complexity ranging from infection networks to hybrid networks of neurons to the Earth’s system. In this context, the main topic is to understand how the Earth’s subsystems function under changing conditions, especially global warming and deforestation in the Amazon.
