From nonlinear statistical mechanics to nonlinear quantum mechanics: many-body systems et al.

Nonadditive entropies to look into many anomalous physical, astrophysical, cosmological (black holes), geophysical, chemical, financial, biological systems.

The fascinating and complex world outside simplifying hypothesis such as ergodicity is hardly tractable, or plainly intractable, within the usual Boltzmann-Gibbs frame, based on the well known additive Boltzmann-Gibbs-von Neumann entropy. Its generalization to nonadditive entropies and their consistent connections to thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, stochastic processes, central-limit and large-deviation approaches, makes many of the usual methods successfully applicable to a wide class of both few- and many-body complex systems.

This path has shown to be fruitful in dealing - theoretically, experimentally, observationally and computationally - with many anomalous physical, astrophysical, cosmological (black holes), geophysical, chemical, financial, biological systems. The main concepts, some recent predictions, verifications, and applications (e.g., in the high-energy experiments of the CMS, ATLAS, ALICE Collaborations at LHC/CERN), as well as nonlinear quantum-mechanical extensions, will be presented.
