STRUCTURES Blog and Social Media Channels Online

On this blog and on our Instagram and Twitter channel, we will give you explanations and insights on interesting structures that are related to our research in the STRUCTURES cluster, and visualize them with captivating images.  We hope to give you an idea what these structures are, how they come about, and why they fascinate us. The Cluster of Excellence STRUCTURES explores new concepts and methods for understanding how structure, collective phenomena, and complexity emerge from the fundamental laws of physics. These concepts are also central for finding structures in large datasets, and for realizing new forms of analogue computing. STRUCTURES addresses specific, highly topical questions about the formation, role, and detection of structure in a broad range of natural phenomena, from subatomic particles to cosmology, and from fundamental quantum physics to neuroscience.
