"It is fair to say that the establishment of statistical physics as one of the main areas of theoretical and computational physics in Brazil owes a great deal to the efforts of Professor Silvio Salinas, whose 80th birthday was celebrated in 2022."
"(...) many other subjects have been introduced as research themes, widening the scope of interests: the problem of modulated phases in magnetic systems, as described by the axial-next-nearest-neighbor Ising model, establishing contact between condensed matter physics and the theory of dynamical systems; the investigation of spin glasses, bringing along the areas of complexity theory and neural networks; the extension of ideas from equilibrium phase transitions to the realm of nonequilibrium systems and to stochastic thermodynamics; the study of aperiodic systems, inspired by the experimental discovery of quasicrystals, stimulating research in mathematical themes and in the interplay with quantum fluctuations; and the proposal of microscopic models for liquid-crystalline phases, allowing collaboration with the complex-fluid group at USP. In all of these initiatives, Prof. Salinas has been instrumental, either as a direct participant or by way of his continuing and enthusiastic support. Most of those topics are represented in the present collection of papers, highlighting the ongoing influence of Prof. Salinas in bringing the attention of Brazilian researchers to topics in the frontier of knowledge."
