Zoltán Toroczkai, professor of physics and concurrent associate professor of computer science and engineering, has been nominated to serve on the advisory board of Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science. Chaos is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal that is published by the American Institute of Physics. The journal includes articles about the most recent developments in nonlinear sciences from the areas of physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology, economics, and social science.
As a member of the Chaos advisory board, Toroczkai will submit articles to the journal, solicit articles from other researchers, and provide ideas for the direction of future issues, including ideas for potential focus areas. He was selected for his stature in the field of nonlinear science and his areas of expertise. This appointment to the board began January 1, 2013 and will last three years.
Toroczkai came to Notre Dame in 2006. His research interests include agent-based systems, complex networks, nonlinear dynamics and chaos, fluid dynamics, statistical physics, and biological population dynamics. He is a co-director of the Interdisciplinary Center for Network Science & Applications (iCeNSA), Notre Dame’s research center that was organized to resolve network science problems in social, biological, biochemical, physical, environmental, financial, technical, and defense systems. Toroczkai was named an American Physical Society Fellow in 2012.
