Dr. Christian von Ferber

Christian von Ferber's interests range from the sub-atomic scale of nuclear fission via the scale of nano-particles and the structure formation in self-assembling materials, to macromolecular networks and beyond to large scale urban transit networks. The methods applied are those of Statistical Physics, Field Theory, Graph Theory and Computer Simulations. Christian has performed studies and worked at Universities in Bonn, Essen, Tel Aviv, Dusseldorf, Freiburg, Krakow. He has worked at the Applied Mathematics Research Centre of Coventry University since 2006.
