Conducting and supporting basic scientific research in nonlinear and complex systems phenomena

The Center for Nonlinear Studies (CNLS) at Los Alamos chooses a small number (two to three) focus topics periodically and directs a major portion of its research capabilities into these strategically important areas.

The focus areas are determined by the Executive Committee and chosen by taking into consideration both the Lab's needs for basic science relevant to mission-critical programs and the need to stay abreast of emerging and potentially important developments in complex systems research.

Current focus Areas

Complex Networks

  • Communication networks
  • Networks in biology
  • Social networks

Soft condensed matter

  • Fluid dynamics
  • Granular materials
  • Colloids
  • Theory and simulation of turbulent flows

Nonlinear phenomena

  • Nonlinear excitations in materials
  • Reaction-diffusion systems
  • Nonlinear optics and spectroscopy
