Posted in News Story

Professor David Egolf has been elected to the leadership line of the American Physical Society’s Topical Group on Statistical and Nonlinear Physics (GSNP). The APS is the leading organization of physicists in America and the second largest such group in the world. The GSNP includes physicists from around the world performing research in interdisciplinary areas such as statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics, chaos, pattern formation, turbulence, and complex systems. Prof. Egolf begins his 4-year term in March as Vice Chair and will serve as Chair for 2017-2018.

Other faculty in our department serving as officers in the APS include Prof. Jim Freericks, who is the Secretary/Treasurer of the Division of Computational Physics, and Prof. Peter Olmsted, who holds the same position within the Topical Group on Soft Matter.
