In appreciation of Martin Gutzwiller's seminal contributions to theoretical physics, which are particularly relevant for nonlinear dynamics in complex systems, the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (MPIPKS) annually awards the Martin-Gutzwiller-Fellowship to acknowledge and promote exceptional research in this field.
Experimental relevance of theoretical concepts has been one of the guiding principles behind Martin Gutzwiller's work and forms an important selection criterion for the fellowship.
The Martin Gutzwiller-Fellow will be invited to visit and work at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems for one academic year. Moreover, the offer allows for the simultaneous visit of a young collaborator (PhD student, postdoc) who will be supported by the Visitors' Program of the MPIPKS for the same or even a longer period.
The awardee will have full support in conducting research at the MPIPKS, including participation in seminars and workshops taking place at the MPIPKS.
