Description
International Workshop

One of the pillars of modern physics is the concept of symmetries. Spontaneously breaking such symmetries gives rise to non-trivial phenomena and can explain why particles have mass. Chimera states – characterized by the coexistence of localized synchronized and unsynchronized dynamics – are a novel example. Yet, experimental realizations remain scarce and the relevance of the phenomenon in technology and in nature remains to be established.
Key questions

Do chimera states control biological and/or cognitive functions?
Do chimera states play any significant role in natural biochemical mechanisms?
In which natural and experimental systems does an effective nonlocal coupling naturally arise?
Do chimera states exist all the way down to the quantum scale?
What technological advantages do chimera states offer?
Which experimental systems are most promising to study chimera states in three dimensions?
How can we establish the existence of chimera states in continuum systems experimentally?
