(II) Networks: topological analysis, random walk, reliability and stability analysis, sequences and graphs

(III) Geometric analysis of structures: quasicrystal, amorphous and frustrated structures;

(IV) Statistical Mechanics of Spin Systems XY model, frustration mediated superconductivity, and spin relaxation,
