Internship opportunity for the summer of 2024

Research Council of Lithuania currently accepts student applications to do internship projects this summer at various institutions across Lithuania. One of the projects students could apply for is mine!

My project is called "Influence of the state interaction network on the statistical properties of the voter model". I would expect for the intern to take a look at the multi-state noisy voter model, and explore what happens when some of transitions between the states are forbidden (something similar was explored in AB model). You do not need to be familiar with sociophysics or opinion dynamics, though I would expect the project to have a significant numerical aspect to it (some programming skills will be required).

Intern application deadline is 29th of May.

Interns will get 1000 Eur monthly stipend. Plus, for students coming from other countries or cities to Vilnius there is possibility to get support for accommodation. Based on this call's rules I will have to give priority to students outside Vilnius University.

More details about this call is available on RCL's website:

Multi-success heterogeneous detrapping process

When presenting heterogeneous detrapping process at the DPG conference I got a question (or a suggestion to check) what would happen if instead of heterogeneous traps we would require multiple successes for the charge carrier to escape? In the previous post we have seen that this change makes relatively little difference when the detrapping times are exponential. But what if they are power-law? What if we require \( N_{success} \) successes within the heterogeneous detrapping process?

Mathemaniac: Random walks in 2D and 3D are fundamentally different

We previously delved into the statistical physics of birds on a wire, where the avian subjects, though sober, exhibited remarkably short tempers. Now, consider the following: which journey is more likely to be completed, that of a drunkard finding their way home or a tipsy bird navigating its flight path homeward? It's an intriguing question posed by Mathemaniac in a video that explores the theoretical disparities between Brownian motion in 2D and 3D realms, all without any harm to our feathered or human friends.
