concrete di transizione energetica da qui al 2050"
Why do higher-order interactions promise to be a fundamental tool for the further theoretical development of #networkscience?
Read our article on the new paper in @NaturePhysics@twitter.com by @email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org & @email@example.com of @firstname.lastname@example.org (among others).
Finally, on the arXiv! This is a collection of writings in the border region between physics and the social sciences stitched together by a heroic effort of @email@example.com https://twitter.com/DynamicsSIAM/status/1445561530792042510
basically, I love trying to understand how nature works, be it with math, models, computer code or at an irrational level.
