Profile on Google Scholar

Ferenc Kun is professor at the Department of Theoretical Physics (UD). He received his PhD in 1997 and became doctor of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (DSc) in 2010. As a PhD Student he studied at the Ecole Superieur de la Physique et Chimie Industrielle in Paris, and later on he was postdoc at the Institute of Computational Physics of the University of Stuttgart. His major research field is the physics of complex systems and the statistical physics of fracture and fragmentation phenomena.
