Third Infinity 2015

The doctoral students of the International Max-Planck Research School for Physics of Biological and Complex Systems organize the international conference Third Infinity-2015 on the physics of biological and complex systems, which will be held on the 14th - 16th of October at the MPI-BPC.

The target participants this year are from the broad spectrum of fields comprising:

  • Advanced microscopy techniques
  • Biomolecular structure and dynamics
  • Biological membranes and motor proteins
  • Experimental and Theoretical biophysics
  • Hydrodynamics and pattern formation of complex fluids
  • Neuronal information processing
  • Non-linear dynamics and Chaotic systems
  • Quantum optics and Nanophotonics
  • Structure and pattern formation in systems of interacting cells

International Bunsen Discussion Meeting – 
1-4 November 2015

Max Planck Institut for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen

Organizers: Jürgen Troe, Alec Wodtke, Jörg Schroeder

The separation of electronic, rovibrational and translational motion greatly simplifies the analysis of molecular dynamics. However, there are plenty of situations where adiabaticity concepts like the Born-Oppenheimer approximation break down and nonadiabatic processes play a dominant role. This International Bunsen Discussion focuses on nonadiabatic effects in chemical kinetics, dynamics and spectroscopy and brings together theoreticians and experimentalists interested in an understanding of the relevance of such phenomena. Applications reach from photophysics and spectroscopy to elementary gas phase reactions, gas-surface processes and spin effects in physical organic chemistry. The meeting takes place in the town where the Born-Oppenheimer approximation was formulated first.


  • Theoretical concepts of adiabaticity
  • Nonadiabatic effects in elementary gas phase reactions
  • Nonadiabatic processes in physical organic chemistry
  • Nonadiabatic effects in spectroscopy
  • Nonadiabatic phenomena in gas-surface processes
