SwB, course package, 60 credits
Complex systems are the norm in nature and society. Some examples are morphogenesis, the study of the development of shape and form of living organisms, the complex dynamics of financial markets, and the study of turbulent aerosols in the atmosphere that influence the climate. This is an interdisciplinary course package that takes a mathematical perspective on complex systems, with courses that deal with the basic principles as well as computer modelling of such systems.
