Extremal optimization – from selforganized criticality to natural computation This talk contains three sections. First, the basic concept of extremal optimization (EO) and its algorithm process are introduced, and a brief review on its applications for some famous NPhard discrete optimization problems are given, including finding the lowestenergy configuration for the Ising spin glass system, graph partitioning, traveling salesman problem, threecoloring problem, and so on. Second, the continuous extremal optimization (CEO) algorithm are introduced, which can be considered as an extension of extremal optimization aiming at continuous optimization problems. We demonstrate it on a wellknown continuous optimization problem: the LennardJones cluster optimization problem. Third, the method to enhance CEO’s performance by combining EO and some other global optimization algorithms are introduced. (The content of section 2 has been published in Phys. Rev. E 72, 016702(2005), and the section 3 will be submitted to Chem. Phys. Lett.)

Reentrant phase transition in the six species predatorprey model
on complex networks
We
investigate the phase diagram for the six species predatorprey
model in one and twodimensional WattsStrogatz networks. As the
spatial randomness (controlled by therewiring probability $\alpha$) and
the temporal randomness(tuned by the mutation rate $P$) are varied the
systemexhibits the welldefined phase transition at which the defensive
alliance of three species become unstable. In a certain range of $P$,
the phase diagram displays the reentrant behaviors, i.e., the systemis
disordered at small $\alpha$, ordered in the intermediate region, and
then back to disordered state as $\alpha$ is increased further,
indicating that the role of the randomly rewired edges is twofold.

Nonequilibrium
Phase Transition with Absorbing States and
Critical Behavior in Surface ReactionDiffusion System
Recently, the nonequilibrium phase transition with
absorbing states in surface
reactiondiffusion system has attracted much more
attention. In this report,
we discuss the effect of the dissociation mechanism
of a dimer and the particle
diffusion on the phase transition behavior. It is
shown that the dissociation
mechanism of a dimer can change the phase transition
behavior in some reaction
systems. When
considering the particle diffusion on surface, the structure of the absorbing
states can change obviously, it is found that the critical behavior
of the continuous phase transition is changed
apparently.

Talk 1: Evolution of ecosystem with sizefree model
We proposed an evolutional dynamical model of
ecosystem named the "sizefree model",
where new species appear and extinct. Instead of the
standard quadratic interspecies
interaction, $x_i \cdot x_j$, assumed in
LotkaVolterraand predatorprey models,
the sizefree
model fractional has interaction terms of the form of
$x_i^{1\lambda}
\cdot x_j^\lambda$. With computer simulation analysis, it is shown
that this model reproduces foodweb networks as
complex as ones we observe in nature,
and lifetime distribution of species estimated from
fossils. There are two phases
in the sizefree model: steady phase and diversifing
phase. In the steady phase, number
of species reaches to steady values and fluctuate
around it. In the diversifing phase,
it continues to increase in time.

Talk 2: Clustercluster aggregation of
2D Isingtype dipole particles
Recent experimental studies are reporting
interesting pattern formation and aggregation
process in the Isingtype dipole system, where the
dipole direction is limited only
to up and down just like the Ising spin. In this
talk, our simulational results are shown.
Our experimental simulation using floating magnet on
water reproduces characteristic
clustering of particles and its dynamics are
analyzed by computer simulation. The dominant
process turns out to be clustercluster aggregation,
and clusters with odd number of
particles are dominant.

Network Marketing on a SmallWorld Network
We investigate a dynamic model of network marketing
in a smallworld network
structure artificially constructed similarly to the WattsStrogatz network
model.
Different from the traditional marketing, consumers can also play the role of
the
manufacturer's selling agents in network marketing, which is stimulated by
the
referral fee the manufacturer offers. As the wiring probability $\alpha$ is
increased from zero to unity, the network changes from the onedimensional
regular
directed network to the star network where all but one player are connected
to one
consumer. The price $p$ of the product and the referral fee $r$ are used as
free
parameters to maximize the profit of the manufacturer. It is observed that at
$\alpha=0$ the maximized profit is constant independent of the network size
$N$
while at $\alpha \neq 0$,it increases linearly with $N$. This is in parallel
to
the smallworld transition.It is also revealed that while the optimal value
of
$p$ stays at an almost constant level in a broad range of $\alpha$, that of
$r$
is sensitive to a change in the network structure. The consumer surplus is
also
studied and discussed.

Numerical
Experiments on Some Spin Systems
Most of numerical simulations so far carried out have
been aimed
to confirm (or disprove) an existing theoretical prediction or an
interpretation of experimental results, as well as to extract some
quantitative results such as values of critical exponents of a
certain phase transition, which are hardly possible by analytical
studies. More interesting features of numerical simulations are,
I think, to find numerically new physical phenomena or/and concepts
based on a welldefined microscopic Hamiltonian. These I call
'numerical experiments'. In this talk, I'll discuss such numerical
experiments we have recently carried out. One is on the quasi1D
(2D) antiferromagnetic Heisenberg model, for which we have found a
universal relation between the Neel temperature and the interchain
(interlayer) coupling strength by the quantum Monte Calro
simulation [1]. Another is on a magnetic dipolemoment system on a
finitesized cubic lattice, in which we have found a peculiar
`fromEdgetoInterior' spin freezing process by the molecular
dynamics simulation [2]. If a time is allowed, I'll talk about
a standard Monte Carlo simulation on an Ising spin glass, which
sheds a light on a longstanding problem in the spinglass study,
namely, whether the spinglass phase is stable or not under a
uniform magnetic field [3].

Modeling Disordered Systems
with Broad Energy Scales
Models with quenched disorder sometimes have intrinsic broad
energy distributions. Such
distributions may also emerge within
various renormalization group
schemes. While lowtemperature physics may
be interesting, crossover behavior
can also be very rich. We use a simple
model of diluted magnetic
semiconductors to illustrate an unusual ordered
phase and the effects of disorder
on the phase. Difficulties in
simulations arise at low
temperatures due to the quantum nature of spins.
We also discuss the crossover
behavior of a related random spin model,
which the conventional realspace
renormalization group method fails to
capture.

We wish to exploit this newly available information to understand the structure, stability and properties of interesting compounds. Statistical mechanics, rather than quantum mechanics is needed to meet this challenge. This talk describes a few approaches, including the use of transfer matrices, Monte Carlo simulation and classical liquid density functional theory to model the stability of metal alloys. Particular attention is paid to explaining the stability of high temperature phases that decompose into lower energy structures at low temperatures. Examples are given in alloy systems where quasicrystals are observed. Robert Ziff Dept. of Chemical Engineering, H. H.

Talk
1: Methods of finding the critical threshold in percolation
In this talk we will discuss ways of finding the critical threshold
in percolation, both exactly
and numerically. The exact results
are restricted to 2d, and
are all essentially related to the startriangle
transformation and
duality. Here we show how the startriangle
transformation can be
generalized to yield the exact thresholds
to a large class of
lattices. We also introduce some nonregular
lattices with exact
thresholds. For other lattices in 2d, and all
lattices in higher
dimensions, numerical methods are needed.
Here we describe several of
them, including the hullgradient
method (2d only), the
NewmanZiff method, the HoshenKopelman
method, and the
singlecluster (Leith) method. Many suggested
problems will be presented.
Talk 2: Publishing in Physical Review E.
Physical Review E receives roughly 4000 papers a year for publication, and accepts 5060% of them. It sends out over 14,000 referrals to referees in a database containing more that 10,000 people. In this talk, I will describe the editorial process in more detail, and give suggestions for improving the chances that your papers will be accepted, with special pointers for nonnative English writers. Talk3 (in Guangzhou): The enclosedarea size distribution in percolation The usual form of the size distribution in percolation, n_s = the number of clusters of size s, can be written in a universal form in the scaling limit, but that form contains two metric factors that vary from lattice to lattice. Here we show that the distribution can in fact be written in an entirely universal form by considering the enclosed area distribution  that is, the number of clusters whose enclosed area is greater than A. For all 2d systems at criticality, this quantity equals C/A, where C = 1/(8 pi sqrt(3)). Away from the critical point, the scaling function looks to be purely exponential. Besides enclosed area, other measures of the area can be used (area of disc covering cluster, etc.), resulting in a different value of the constant C. In higher dimensions, if one considers the volume of a sphere or other shape covering the cluster, this also leads to a universal form of the size distribution. Tao Zhou* Dept. of Modern Physics, Univ. of Science and Technology of China, Hefei Anhui, 230026, PR China email: zhutou@ustc.edu Traffic Dynamics on Complex Networks
We propose a simple model for traffic dynamics on networks.
For both homogeneous and
heterogeneous networks, there exists a phase
transition from free phase to
congested phase. The value of the transition
point can be considered as a
measure of network's communication ability,
which is significantly affected by
the topology of the network.
Based on this model and under the
case that the global information is
available, we propose a new
routing strategy to improve the transportation
efficiency on scalefree networks.
Instead of using the routing strategy for
shortest path, we give a
generalized routing algorithm to find the socalled
efficient path, which considers
the possible congestion in the nodes
along actual paths. Since the
nodes with largest degree are very susceptible
to traffic congestion, an
effective way to improve traffic and control
congestion, as our new strategy,
can be as redistributing traffic load
in central nodes to other
noncentral nodes. Simulation results indicate
that the network capability in
processing traffic is improved more than
10 times by optimizing the
efficient path, which is in good agreement
with the analysis. We also
investigated the case when only local information
is available, and found that the
capacity of the network can be enhanced by
increasing the forwarding ability
of small important nodes which bear severe
congestion.
