Matjaž Perc is Professor of Physics at the University of Maribor, Slovenia, and director of the Complex Systems Center Maribor. He is member of Academia Europaea[1] and among top 1% most cited physicists according to Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researchers.[2] He is Outstanding Referee of the Physical Review and Physical Review Letters journals,[3] and Distinguished Referee of EPL.[4] He received the Young Scientist Award for Socio-and Econophysics in 2015.[5] His research has been widely reported in the media and professional literature.[6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16]

Biography[edit]

Matjaž Perc studied physics at the University of Maribor. He completed his doctoral thesis on noise-induced pattern formation in spatially extended systems with applications to the nervous system, game-theoretical models, and social complexity. In 2009 he received the Zois Certificate of Recognition for outstanding research achievements in theoretical physics.[17][18] In 2010 he became head of the Institute of Physics at the University of Maribor, and in 2011 he became full Professor of Physics. In 2015, Matjaž Perc established the Complex Systems Center Maribor.[19] His research on complex systems covers evolutionary game theory, agent-based modeling, data analysis, and network science.

Research[edit]

Matjaž Perc is one of the foremost experts of the theory of cooperation on networks.[20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29][30] He has applied Monte Carlo simulations and dynamical mean field theory to discover that stochastic perturbations resolve social dilemmas in a resonance-like manner.[31][32] He has also pioneered self-organization as a way of stabilizing reward and punishment in structured populations,[33][34] and he has proposed the introduction of discrete strategies in ultimatum games,[35][36] which has contributed to the understanding of the fascinating complexity behind human bargaining. His research has helped to reveal the full potential of methods of non-equilibrium statistical physics in evolutionary game theory.[37]

He has done research on the evolution of moral and double moral standards,[38] the evolution of the most common English words and phrases,[39] and the rise and fall of new words.[40] He has discovered self-organization in the way how major scientific ideas propagate across the physics literature,[41] which culminated in a simple mathematical regularity that is able to identify scientific memes.[42]

In addition to his various original contributions, Matjaž Perc has provided the research community with several reviews and introductory articles on evolutionary games,[43][44][45][46] the emergence of organized crime,[47] collective phenomena in socio-economic systems,[48][49] energy-saving mechanisms in nature,[50] and the Matthew Effect.[51]

Awards[edit]

  • 2018 received the Zois Award (named after Žiga Zois).
  • 2017 received USERN Prize in social sciences, for "Transitions Towards Cooperation in Human Societies".
  • 2009 received the Zois Certificate of Recognition. Being only 30 years old at the time, he was the youngest receiver of the Zois certificate ever.
