Research Interests:

Di Zengru mainly studies non-equilibrium system theory, complexity, and also the application of related theory in social economy and biosystem. Di made some achievements in the bistability of increasing return and economic growth, the mechanical description of social division of labor, the structure, evolution and function of weighted complex network. At present, Di is focusing on complexity study, especially the relation between the local interaction of individuals and the macro complex behavior. His specific research direction includes complex network, collective behavior of multi-agent system, emergence of organization and structure in economic and biological systems, etc.

Professional Affiliations:

In December 2006, Di was nominated as the executive member of Complex System Research Council of PMRC. In October 2003, Di was nominated as the secretary general of the physics group of Commission of Teaching Instruction of National Higher Education Self-Taught Examination.
