What is complexity science? What are complex systems?
And why do physicists like Stephen Hawking and Heinz Pagels think complexity science will be a dominant force, not only in shaping our pursuit of scientific truth, but also in changing how we think about societies, and our place in them?
The 2016 Winter School provides an overview of complexity and complex systems science that empowers participants search for their own answers to these questions. The knowledge gained will enable participants to apply complexity science ideas in their own domains.
Essentially, the school will:
Well known experts from Singapore (Peter M. A. Sloot and J. Stephen Lansing) and abroad (Brian Arthur, Geoffrey West, David Matchar and Stefan Thurner) will conduct the lectures & hands-on sessions, lead discussions, provide coaching and supervision.
THEME: DYNAMIC COMPLEX NETWORKS
There are three lectures every morning to introduce various concepts, theories and methods. The afternoons are for hands-on sessions analysing networks with Python (NetworkX), and to discuss specific interests, questions and applications. Please see the program here.
