Abstract
The main objective of this project is the development and application of new theoretical models as well as analytical and numerical methods dealing with phase transitions and critical phenomena in condensed matter. Research is directed towards the folowing target areas: Antiferroelectric liquid crystals, which are relevant for application in liquid-crystal displays. Dipolar and quadrupolar glasses are important for understanding the freezing transitions occurring in relaxor ferroelectrics and related systems. Reconstruction of noble-metal surfaces is a phenomenon, which relevant to the development of catalysts. Self-organized criticality is a dynamic process occurring in complex systems, which can explain the behavior of various biophysical and biological systems and granular materials. High temperature superconductors have potential applicability in electric components and high field magnets. Statistical models of biological substances are important in understanding the origin of specific diseases such as the Alzheimer disease. Within the framework of the project a close collaboration with various experimental groups at home and abroad is taking place, and a number of graduate students, so-called young researchers, is receiving their training.
