The use of the celebrated Boltzmann-­-Gibbs entropy and statistical mechanics is justified for ergodic-like systems. In contrast, complex systems typically require more powerful theories. We will provide a brief introduction to nonadditive entropies and associated nonextensive statistical mechanics, and then present some recent applications to systems such as high-­energy collisions, black holes and others.
In this talk we  review applications of the  Tsallis distribution in high energy physics covering p-p, p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisons at ALICE, ATLAS and CMS.
