Shnerb research group, physics of complex systems

Nadav Shnerb

Welcome to Shnerb research group!

The research in our group involves a theoretical understanding of some fundamental aspects in the dynamics of complex systems. Our group makes use of non-linear dynamics and statistical physics techniques to investigate the behavior of a wide variety of complex systems, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary applications, most of them in the field of life science.


Among the topics we are interested in are:

  • Characterization and statistics of fluctuations in complex systems.
  • Predator-prey dynamics on spatial domains.
  • The conditions under which species richness is maintained in a community of  many competing species.
  • Vegetation patterns and the process of desertification.
  • A statistical analysis of genetic diversity and its relations to population dynamics.
  • Epidemic dynamics in systems with spatial structure and networks.

Many of our projects are data-oriented, driven by the fascinating patterns one may find in nature. Other aspects of our work are related to more abstract questions that have to do with the theoretical foundations of the field:


  • The semi-deterministic limit and the reliability of a deterministic analysis for stochastic systems.
  •  Neutral (noise driven) theories of community dynamics.
  • Noise induced stabilization.
  • Synchronization of diffusively-coupled oscillations.
  •  Phase transition in the presence of an absorbing state.
  •  Glassy states and Turing instability.

Beside the standard list of our group’s publications and the people involved, you can find here also two popular science articles that cover some of the main directions of our work, with a few amusing examples. One is about the role of luck in life and life-science (a hint – it is quite useful to be lucky).

  1. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

  4. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who had been doing a little research on this. And he in fact bought me dinner because I discovered it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss this matter here on your website.| а

  5. I believe what you published made a ton of sense. However, consider this, what if you were to write a killer title? I ain’t saying your content isn’t good, however what if you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news titles to get viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.| а

  6. Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Cheers!| а

  7. First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!| а

  8. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less.

I have heard good things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!| а

How likely do you think it would be that my story would be plagiarized? Is there anything Youtube does to try to stop plagiarism?.
