Graduiertenkolleg Nichtlinearität und Nichtgleichgewicht in kondensierter Materie, GRK 638
The Graduiertenkolleg Nichtlinearität und Nichtgleichgewicht in kondensierter Materie (Research School Nonlinearity and Nonequilibrium in Condensed Matter) is a joint PhD programme of the physics, biology and medical faculty at Regensburg University, founded by the German Science Foundation (DFG). The programme provides an interdisciplinary and internationally oriented research environment for university graduates who do research towards a PhD (German doctoral degree) in theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics, biophysics and medical physics. The PhD students work on their theses in a research group within the framework of the Research School. They participate in an accompanying study programme organized by the faculty members and, to some extent, the students themselves. A common seminar programme with regular talks, seminar days and workshops is complementing the scientific environment.

Effects of nonlinearity and nonequilibrium build the platform for coordinated and common research of the different groups involved. Methods for treating nonlinear and nonequilibrium phenomena are applied to condensed matter, particularly nanostructure physics, NMR and biomolecules, as well as for data analysis and modelling in neuroscience.
