== The big opensource tutorial ==<br />
<br />
=== Open Source research software ===<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> [[Opensource software tutorial|Tutorial]] scheduled on Monday 9 from 7:00p<br />
<br />
Open (no pun intended...) your eyes to the wonderful world of FOSS -- Free and Open Source Software. While the distinction between Free and Open Source is a very interesting one (and highly contentious in the right crowds), for research purposes, we want to use the best tools for the job but some of us suffer from limited income, so I would like to talk about both. At the same time, FOSS is great to use for a non-economic reason: if you find bugs, or design extensions, you can fix them yourself (in OSS, at least) or at least report the problem back to a typically active community. Some potential tools to discuss/explore: R, Octave, Scilab, Gnuplot, perhaps some of the more useful languages in the field like Python and perhaps others I don't know as much about (a quick `apt-cache` on my Ubuntu Hardy install shows RasMol, ClustalW, SeaView, Achilles, complearn, EMBOSS, GENESIS, etc...)<br />
<br />
- I would like to give a "Brazilian" contribution. Those who are interested in GIS&Cia could have a look at [http://www.dpi.inpe.br/gilberto/software.html Free and Open Source GIS Source]. <br />
[[Flavia_Feitosa|Flavia]]<br />
<br />
I would be happy to contribute a little bit about freely available simulation environments like ns-2 (computer networks) and omnet++ (a generic DES) -- Laura<br />
<br />
- For Python I can offer a tutorial (see below). Nish, do you have any experience with [http://www.sagemath.org/ Sage]? [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
All great ideas and I would love to have more of a "You know how to use this tool or you know of this tool, you talk about it" style of tutorial :)<br />
Maybe we can do a general OSS tutorial/discussion and then transition to specific sub-topics in separate tutorials (Python, GIS, networks, etc)?<br />
I've not used Sage, before, but I'm happy to take a look before the tutorial. Thanks for the info, Giovanni!<br />
<br />
<br><br />
I'd like to learn more about open software. [[Holger_Keeler| Paul]]<br />
<br />
Some subtopics that we'll cover:<br />
<br />
==== R tutorial ====<br />
<br />
I (''[[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]'') know a little bit about R (basic stuff such as common plots and regression analysis) but would like to enhance my R skills. Does anybody have an interest in a R tutorial, too? Please edit this if there is more interest.<br />
<br />
I am fairly familiar with R and could probably run a tutorial... what are you all interested in <br />
learning? - Skyler<br />
*I'd just like to get an understanding of some of it's practical uses. -Devin<br />
*Do you familiar with running social network analysis package in R? I want to learn more about it. [[Jiang_Wu| Jiang]]<br />
<br />

<br />
==== Python tutorial ====<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> Thank you to everybody who showed up for the tutorial. This [http://www.inf.unisi.ch/phd/ciampaglia/python.tar.gz tarball] contains all the scripts I've shown during the tutorial plus two more that do actually something interesting. To run logistic.py you will need installed [http://numpy.org numpy], [http://scipy.org scipy] and [http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/ matplotlib]. You can easily install all these packages using [http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/EasyInstall easy_install], a tool that lets you download, build and install python packages from the command line (e.g. try "easy_install matplotlib" from the shell)<br />
<br />
I've (''also [[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]'') interest in a Python tutorial. Please edit this if there is more interest.<br />
<br />
I can give a tutorial on python and on scipy/numpy. I can also talk about coding in general, as python is both a languange which is object oriented, imperative and functional (somehow). We can use the [http://docs.python.org/tut/tut.html python tutorial] itself as a reference for the part about the language, and then move to the basic concepts of the duo [http://numpy.org numpy] / [http://scipy.org scipy], which form a powerful tool to manipulate n-dimensional arrays of numbers and also talk about [http://ipython.scipy.org/moin/ ipython] (the enhanced interactive shell) and the [http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/ pylab] interface, which gives a very nice environment for interactive programming and data analysis. Since pylab has been designed to mimic MATLAB's interface (the major plotting/statistical functions work as expected in both enviroments, which saves you a lot of time if you're used to MATLAB), I can also talk a bit about MATLAB, but being not a big fan of it, it would be better if somebody else stepped in to another tutorial on that. <br />
<br />
Leave a mark if interested! [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
I'd be interested in this as well [[User: Mark | Mark]]<br/><br />
<br />
I'm in. &mdash;[[User:Jreyes|Josh]]<br />
<br />
I'm in. [[Nish_Aravamudan|Nish]]<br />
<br />
Yes please. [[Molly_Rorick|Molly]]<br />
<br />
Me too. [[Rory_Sayres]] [[User:Sayres|Sayres]] 23:55, 4 June 2008 (MDT)<br />
<br />
I'd be interested in this as well [[Tanja_Gesell|Tanja]]<br />
<br />
I'm in [[Riley_Crane]]<br />
<br />
Another one. [[Petr Svarc|Petr]]<br />
<br />
== Neutral models in biology ==<br />
<br />
Already met. Big thanks to Molly! <br />
<br />
There is an interesting [http://arxiv.org/abs/0710.4911 paper] by Cosma Shalizi of SFI about methodological problems in social sciences research in which he talks about the concept of neutral models in evolution models. I was wondering if any of the bio-people can give a tutorial on this topic as I am pretty interested in understanding the concept. [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
I would be very interested in learning about neutral networks too! - Skyler<br />
<br />
== GIS / Spatial Analysis ==<br />
<br />
Space Matters!! Geographical information system (GIS) is a computational system (hardware + database engine) that is designed to assemble, store, update, analyze, manipulate, and display geographically referenced information (data identified by their locations).<br />
<br />
I'm thinking about introducing some basic GIS concepts and a free GIS software known as [http://www.dpi.inpe.br/~flavia/GIS/ Terraview]. We could also explore some spatial analysis techniques (this is the best part!) using Terraview and [http://www.geoda.uiuc.edu/downloadin.php GeoDa] (also free!). <br />
<br />
<br />
Please edit here if you are interested or send me an email. [mailto:flafeitosa@gmail.com Flávia]<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> It has been scheduled on Friday, June 13 from 1:30 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.<br />
<br />
<br />
I'm in [[Walter_Zesk|Walt]]<br/><br />
I'd do this. &mdash;[[User:Jreyes|Josh]]<br/><br />
let me know, I'm in, Sonja<br/><br />
Me too. &mdash;[[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br/><br />
Can not wait for this! Rio<br><br />
Me too. [[Kathleen_Sprouffske|Kathleen]]<br><br />
Sounds like fun. If people are interested, I can bring some data sets to play around with. Alex<br />
<br />
== Statistical Physics for Non-Physicists == <br />
Problem: Textbooks about this are written for physicists. <br />
Solution: A Physicist (or mathematician) that would be so kind and spend few minutes (or maybe hours) to explain all that stuff to people like me(Petr):-)<br />
<br />
[[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]: Do you seek for a general introduction or something specific?<br />
<br />
A crash course in Statistical Physics would be awesome. Let us know. &mdash; [[User:cyepez|Carlos]]<br />
<br />
I am interested too. (Soumya)<br />
<br />
Me too. (Jean)<br />
<br />
Interested! [[User:Meritxell|Meritxell]]<br />
<br />
Interested! [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
Ditto - Skyler<br />
<br />
Me too. &mdash;[[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br/><br />
<br />
Me three. [[User:RobMills|RobMills]]<br />
<br />
I'd be willing to run such a tutorial. However, I would have to consult with some/all of the interested parties to find out what kind of statphys you want to learn about. There are a huge number of possible topics, one could start with basics like ensembles, or perhaps people are interested in master equation and other non-equilibrium techniques, or maybe critical phenomena is what people are interested in. I really do not know. (Orion)<br />
<br />
Can you give us who are not physicists an introduction about a kind of special questions that you will think it from the viewpoint of physicists? Like complex network, dynamic, also something else, what is the most important measurement and dynamic process you want to observe? -[[Jiang_Wu|Jiang]]<br />
<br />
Check out this book: http://pages.physics.cornell.edu/sethna/StatMech/ [[Petr Svarc|Petr]]<br />
<br />
== Modern Logic and Reasoning ==<br />
Like I mentioned in the 'ice-breaking', I could tell something about application of modern logic into human reasoning. It's a very board topic, and very new. Criticisms are welcome and needed. I would give some basic examples. On top of that, I would also say some development of logic, and how I found it useful in research, which might seem un-related to logic, esp. in social science. I am planning to give a 15 to 20 minutes presentation, UNLESS people want to hear more, in that case, please let me know.<br />

<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> Time at June 10th, 03.15 p.m. - 03.35 p.m.<br />
[[CSSS 2008 Santa Fe-Schedule]]<br />
<br />
== Introduction to the Design and Analysis of Computer Experiments ==<br />
How do you find "interesting" behavior when your computer model is too slow or the inputs are too many to try every possible combination? Using an Arctic sea ice simulator example, I will show you how modern statistical methods can help you explore your virtual world more efficiently. Check out this brief<br />
[http://www.stat.sfu.ca/~dbingham/NICDS_CompExpt/research.html overview] or a more technical paper about<br />
[http://www.schonlau.net/publication/jogo98.pdf global optimization]. Also see [http://www.gaussianprocess.org/ Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning] for a list of available resources. [[B%C3%A9la_Nagy|Béla]]<br />
<br />
<br />
== Genomics / Central dogma overview ==<br />
It seems like some of you might be interested in an overview of the central dogma of molecular biology to non-biologists. This could be an 1h tutorial on the major actors of gene expression: nucleus, chromosomes, chromatine, DNA, RNA (tRNA, mRNA), proteins, polymerases, ribosomes, transcription factors, and eventually a quick intro to small, non-coding RNAs as a bonus. Although being a bioinformatician by training, I'm happy to leave the way if a "hard core" biologist wants to do this tutorial (Molly ?). Edit if interested! Jean<br />
<br />
I'd be happy to attend a tutorial in 'genomics for idiots' -- Laura<br />
<br />
Me too. I am also interested in metagenomics if this is not too much of course. -- Francois<br />
<br />
I'd like to go to a 'genomics for idiots' tutorial as well. -- [[Srideep_Musuavthy|srideep]]<br />
<br />
Ok, so I'll prepare some slides. How about Monday 9th, 5p - 6p (location TBA) ? -- Jean<br />
<br />
Nice tutorial. [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
<br />
== Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning ==<br />
I (Nish) could introduce some of the basic methods in AI/ML. If there is significant interest in the two fields separately, I could do two tutorials. Would probably focus on the higher level, rather than the nitty-gritty details, as well as applications of the methods to real problems. I'm not necessarily an expert, although have a fair amount of experience in the area, so I would prefer a more interactive session, where questions can be answered by everyone.<br />
<br />
Sign me up. &mdash; [[User:cyepez|Carlos]]<br><br />
I'm also interested. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]] <br><br />
Me too! [[Flavia_Feitosa|Flávia]]<br />
<br />
How about "AI/MI for dummies", Nish? I've been wondering about it.... Rio<br />
<br />
sounds good [[Riley_Crane]]<br />
<br />
nice [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
<br />
== A Crash Course to Classical and Evolutionary Game Theory ==<br />
Game theory is the study of interactive decision making. Classical game theory aims to develop a general theory to describe how rational agents interact strategically. In many cases humans lack the kind of infinite computational power and time assumed by classical game theory. In the early 1970s the biologist John Maynard Smith introduced evolutionary methods to the field, dispensing with the assumption of hyper-rationality while changing many of the concepts central to the field along the way. The result was evolutionary game theory. This new framework has been used to model the behavior of fundamentally non-rational players (such as viruses) as well as humans. <br />
<br />
In this tutorial, I'd try to introduce the basic concepts in both of these fields, namely, the definition of a game, payoffs, the Nash equilibirum and evolutionarily stable strategies, the replicator dynamics. I'll briefly mention the three basic classes of two-strategy games represented by the Prisoner's Dilemma, the Snowdrift Game (sometimes called the Hawk-Dove game or Chicken), and the Stag Hunt Game. Depending on particular interests of the group, we could prove the Bishop-Cannings theorem and give a classification of all symmetric two-strategy games; or look at updating methods and spatial chaos; reputation and image scoring; rock-paper-scissors in biological systems; or evolutionary branching and specialization.<br />
<br />
If there's something else you'd like to know about EGT, shoot me ([mailto:joshua.reyes@removeme.gmail.com Josh]) an email, and I'll see if I can dig up something I know on your topic. I'm not going to require any fancy mathematical background. If you've seen a 2&times;2 matrix before, great. Otherwise, it's not a big deal. We won't multiply them or calculate their eigenvalues. They'll just serve as a means for bookkeeping.<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Note:</span> Some of us are also thinking about setting up a [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Projects_%26_Working_Groups#Evolutionary_Game_Theory|working group]] as well.<br/><br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update:</span> The next meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, June 10 from 7&ndash;8pm in a location TBD.<br />

== Resilience of social-ecological systems ==<br />
The resilience perspective is increasingly used as an approach for understanding the dynamics of social–ecological systems. Essential for the resilience perspective is the recognition that living systems are not in equilibrium but rather in a domain of attraction. <br />
Many dynamic systems, however, have multiple domains of attraction. Moreover, self-organizing processes can create or change the shape and depth of this domain of attraction. Within the resilience perspective, new pathways of sustainable development can be represented by crossing a threshold from a domain of attraction and/or by creating new domains. Resilience is a measure of how much change or disruption is required to transform a system from being maintained by one set of mutually reinforcing processes and structures to a different set of processes and structures.<br />
If you are interested we (Mike and Dirk) can introduce you to some of the insights developed by the [http://www.resalliance.org/1.php resiliance alliance] and the challenges we face in understanding these kind of systems.<br />
<br />
I am interested in this too. Richard<br />
<br />
Very interested, any idea of when you will do it? [[Walter_Zesk|Walt]]<br />
<br />
I'm interested as well. Steve<br />
<br />
I'm interested too. - Skyler<br />
<br />
I think to contribute from my previous work on SES. Rio<br />
<br />
== Introduction to classical control theory ==<br />
I (Srideep) can offer a 'quick' tutorial on control theory/control systems. This is will be a simple introduction to the motivation, basic ideas, issues and jargon in the field. If you are interested, please let me know about your background in linear algebra, complex analysis and calculus. Depending on the background, I might spend more or less time introducing the field. <br />
<br />
Ideally, if you know what eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix are, what a pole of a complex function is and how the solution of a linear differential equation looks like, you are ready to jump right into controls. If the words above don't mean much at all, then we can run a quick 'review' of what they mean intuitively. <br />
you can sign up here or send me an email [mailto:srideep.musuvathy@gmail.com srideep]<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> Lets plan on discussing this early next week. Will fix up a time by the end of this week. Liz bradley will be done with her introduction to dynamics and the eigenvalue, eigenvector tutorial will be done this friday. This will make my life easier! :-)<br />
<br />
I'd be very interested in this tutorial. I think I'm basically OK on the prerequisites, <br />
but I wouldn't be annoyed by a review. Perhaps Monday? -- Laura<br />
<br />
I'm in too. I guess I should be ok on linear algebra, calculus and linear ODEs, but I don't know what the pole of a complex function is. Jean<br />
<br />
I'm in. If we can start with 'pole' thing, that would be wonderful. - Masayoshi<br />
<br />
Hi Srideep, please put me in this group. About my background on the subjects you asked; zero!!! Sorry. Rio<br />
<br />
Definitely interested in this. - Jacob<br />
<br />
I'm in. Paul<br />
<br />
Looks cool. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]]<br />
<br />
Me too! [[Rory_Sayres|Rory]]<br />
<br />
I'm interested. Don't have any complex analysis background though. [[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br />
<br />
Sounds good. I'm in. [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
<br />
== Topology/algebra ==<br />
I (Srideep) will also be happy to talk about topology, introducing the concepts of point-set topology. The language of modern mathematics is enshrined in the concepts of point-set topology. I can also talk about group theory and introduce abstract algebra to those interested. In my opinion, it is the most powerful gateway into abstract thinking. sign here or email me [mailto:srideep.musuvathy@gmail.com srideep]<br />
<br />
I'd be very interested in that. Jean<br />
<br />
I'd be interested to see what you cover in the topology section. Algebra, however, is for the birds :) Paul<br />
<br />
Srideep, can you do an introduction to category theory? Or would you be interested in co-organizing a tutorial with me? - Jacob<br />
<br />
I'm very interested. Abby<br />
<br />
Sounds like fun (Chris)<br />
<br />
Interested. Category theory also would be fun [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
== Eigenvalues - what are they and how to find them? ==<br />
I (Kolbjørn) can put together a brief and elementary introduction to eigenvalues and eigenvectors if anyone have an urge for this. Sign up or e-mail and we'll schedule something. [mailto:kolbjorn@chalmers.se Kolbjørn]<br />
<br />

I'm also interested! [[ Flavia_Feitosa|Flavia]]<br />
<br />
I'll be there. -[[Molly_Rorick|Molly]]<br />
<br />
I'm in as well. -[[Tanja_Gesell|Tanja]]<br />
<br />
Me too! '''Just to remind'''; I think Classical and Evolutionary Game Theory (Josh)will be started at 3 PM. Rio<br />
<br />
== How your computer works ==<br />
<br />
Nish and Laura can give a joint tutorial on 'how your computer works'. What happens when I type 'www.santafe.edu' in my browser? How does a web server at santafe.edu handle all those incoming requests? What happens when I use a WiFi access point? Basically, we'd be happy to take your questions about how your computer works and do our best to answer them - we're also happy to have other co-tutors. <br />
<br />
Let us know if there's interest [mailto:lmfeeney@sics.se Laura], we'd probably schedule later next week, to not conflict with tutorials that focus on maths and other project prerequisites.<br />
<br />
I would love this. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]]<br />
<br />
== How your hardware works ==<br />
Along the same lines as the computer tutorial, I've found myself discussing hardware with a number of folks. And why hardware matters from a massive parallelism perspective (which is quite common in the complex research areas I've encountered). If folks are interested, I can give a rough overview of the way hardware works in different types of computers and supercomputers (as much as I understand of it) as well as how to best leverage that knowledge.<br />
<br />
Not sure how this differs from the the one above it, but def. interested (Chris)<br />
<br />
== Computational Physics for Non-physicists or A small introduction into Applied Physics ==<br />
<br />
I've seen that many people are interested in physics. I could give an introduction to "computational" physics - this means physics with a PC. Actually, it is very broad and gives some basics for simulations (interesting for all simulation-folks):<br />
<br />
- What is a 'random number generator' and why should I know something about it?<br />
<br />
- What are Master-equations?<br />
<br />
- The Ising-model / Voter-model<br />
<br />
- The Central Limit Theorem or why does it make sense to average over multiple runs of a simulation?<br />
<br />
- ...<br />

==Information Theory==<br />
An open discussion of Shannon information theory (would like some help in presenting this part clearly) and then some newer results from its application to cellular automata (and potentially other complex systems).<br />
<br />
Interesting. I remember something from the master course I took. [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br><br />
I'd love to participate. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]]<br><br />

<br />
I'm in. --[[User:meritxell|Meritxell]]<br />
<br />
FYI: Tom Carter is going to be talking about Information Theory a bit tomorrow from 2-3pm, not sure of a location yet, but its on the schedule.<br />
<br />
==Cellular Automata==<br />
CAs (particularly ECAs) are a very interested model of computation. How do 8 rules (ECA 110, e.g.) emulate a Turing Machine? Why is that interesting? What can we learn about what defines computation given CAs? Maybe we can also discuss some simple computational (Turing) theory.<br />
<br />
I'd go to that twice. &mdash;[[User:Jreyes|Josh]]<br />
<br />
Sounds like fun. [[Christopher Vitale|Chris]]<br />
<br />
==A little analytical tool-box: Non-linear dynamics, ODEs, PDEs...==<br />
The [[David_Foster|Brothers]] [[Jacob_Foster|Foster]] would be happy to offer some tutorials on analytical methods. Depending on what Alfred Hubler covers, we can do some fraction of Strogatz (flows on the line & circle, bifurcations, maybe linear systems, index theorem, etc.), as well as offering a basic introduction to solving linear ODEs (no theorems, just techniques) and simple PDEs like the heat equation, with boundary conditions. Ideally this would come after Kolbjørn's eigen-stuff course, so we can just assume familiarity with that.<br />
<br />
We've put a tentative time for our tutorial on the schedule: [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Schedule#Week_Three_-_FINANCE/ECONOMY|June 16 at 3:15pm]]. Let us know if this doesn't work out for some reason and we can try to change it.<br />
<br />
'''Update!''' Looking at the amount of material it's clear we'll have to break this into two. We'll start with a linear ODE/PDE tutorial, going through most of the basic techniques. We'll schedule a subsequent one on non-linear techniques soon.<br />
<br />
<br />
These are fun topics! I never get enough of them! -- [[Srideep_Musuvathy|srideep]]<br><br />
Sounds great. [[Molly_Rorick|Molly]]<br><br />
Interesting -- sure. [[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br><br />
Very useful! [[Kathleen_Sprouffske|Kathleen]]<br><br />

<br />
Brothers Foster rulez! I'll be there. [[Petr Svarc|Petr]]<br />
Count me in! [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
==Linguistics==<br />
Can someone (I don't know [[Peter_Graff|who]]) perhaps offer a tutorial on basic linguistics stuff? I am particularly interested in generative grammar and coverage of the Chomsky "Three Models" paper, but maybe there are more interesting topics to be discussed these days... -Jacob<br />
<br />
I could easily do a Saussure/Pierce tutorial, along with how this has been applied from everything to kinship structure to film theory to table manners, but this is continental structural linguistics, very diff from the chomsky stuff. I think Peter Graff can do the chomsky stuff, though, perhaps we could work on this together (Chris)<br />
<br />
Would love both tutorials. Esp. the kinship structure stuff (is this Andre Weil's algebra chapter on kinship, from Levi-Strauss I think?) -Jacob<br />
<br />
I'd love to participate. -Tanja<br />
<br />
==Fitting models to data==<br />
A few people have asked me for a brief review of fitting models to data, but I'd like to know what methods interest you. I could start with least squares and progress to Bayesian approaches, maximum likelihood, and some more recent developments in methods for exploring space (GAs, particle filters, MCMC) with which I'm familiar. I'm by no means an expert in all these topics, so please add your name below if there's something you'd like to learn about (a particular method or method for a particular context) or teach. I feel like this tutorial would be most appropriate for the third or fourth week. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]]<br />
<br />
I am really interested in this. (Soumya)<br />
<br />
cool [[Riley_Crane]]<br />
<br />
I am interested in this, especially in various regression approaches and Bayesian inference. [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
<br />
==Semiotics, Sign Systems, and the Mind==<br />
<br />
UPDATE: TUTORIAL NOW SCHEDULED MONDAY NIGHT, 4:30-6 - bring dinner with you to coffee shop!<br />
<br />
This tutorial will be a general overview of theories of language (Saussure, Pierce, French Structuralism, Lacan) and how they impact philosophy of mind (Freud, Fodor, Minsky, Edelman, ANNs). No previous knowledge of any of this stuff needed!<br />
<br />
Probably start off with the first real theory of language and the brain, Freud's topological theory, and then move to how this was absorbed into structuralist linguistics/semiotics in the 1950's (Saussure's theory of signifiers, Jakobsen on axes of discourse, paradigms/syntagms, metaphoric value transfer, and how this was applied to kinship structures, social institutions, etc.) From there we could look at how Jacques Lacan built upon this with his 'mathemic' algebraic notation for discourse analysis. We could then look at how networked theories of mind challenge both the Lacanian model and its American counterparts (Fodor's psychosemantics, for example), particularly in regard to connectionist architectures in artificial neural networks, and how this leads to more distributed notions of linguistic structure. These new paradigms can allow us to move beyond notions of discrete 'signs' existing somewhere in the brain to models based on research in microfeature maps, dynamic network synchronization, spreading activation, and feature vectores. When synthesized with Lacan's insights, and blended with some ideas from object-relations theory and by thinkers like Marvin Minsky and Gerald Edelman, its possible to come up with models that actually reflect the impact of complex systems theories. Likely wayy too much stuff to squeeze in, but certainly enough to get a conversation going, even if we don't get to half of it! <br />
<br />

== Questions at the Intersection of Neuroscience and Complexity ==<br />
<br />
This tutorial met Wedenesday AM (June 11). Thanks to everyone who showed up! We'll continue the discussion of these topics as a [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Projects_%26_Working_Groups#Something_in_Neuroscience |working group]].<br />
<br />
Related to Chris' proposal above, but perhaps on the flip side, I'd be happy to give a tutorial / lead a discussion on issues where questions of complexity intersect with problems in neuroscience. I'll distinguish this topic from the idea above, in that I'll focus a bit more on bottom-up questions rather than purely theory-motivated questions. Neuroscience is a very large field, so I'll talk about some of the things I know, but encourage others to bring their own knowledge and curiosity. <br />
<br />
I'll start with a short background on neuroanatomy of humans and other species. Then I'll do a survey of what's sometimes termed "systems neuroscience". This is the branch of neuroscience that asks about behavior roughly on the level of neural circuits -- but which often jumps up and down scales, and overlaps pretty significantly with ideas in "cognitive neuroscience" where the focus is on a lot of the interesting, higher-order behaviors unique to relatively few species. Then I'll go over a couple of papers which I think start on a road to using complex systems. Examples of what I might talk about would be:<br />
<br />
* [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17428910?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum Kiani et al J. Neurophys 2007] '''Does the visual system naturally group objects into heirarchical categories?''' These authors tried to apply some dimensionality reduction techniques to neural data from monkey inferotemporal cortex. The ideas from Dr. Newman's lectures may be very appropriate here.<br />
* [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17660812?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum Assisi et al. Nature Neuroscience 2007] '''Sparseness in representation of odors'''. The Laurent lab has been combining high-quality experimental methods in the insect olfactory system with computational models (including network models) to look at how the insect system (and more recently the mammalian system) represent odors. The system presents a very interesting contrast to the visual system, in terms of the sparseness of representations at the early levels. There's some elegant circuitry mapped out here. '''BONUS QUESTION!''' I remember one of the questions they investigated earlier was how locusts transition from 'happy grasshopper' mode to 'Biblical swarm' mode. This has something to do with olfaction. This population behavior is probably a very intersting bifurcation; we can dig into what this reflects.<br />
* [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18047414?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum Machens and Brody, Neural Computation 2008]. [[http://www.molbio.princeton.edu/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=335 Carlos Brody]] does a lot of work on how neural circuits dynamics can allow for short term memory behavior. This includes comparing a perceived sensation to something you experienced a few seconds or minutes ago, and constructing an internal sense of how time elapses. His group uses tools like attractor networks to model this behavior.<br />
* '''Walter Freeman's work'''. Freeman studies the mammalian visual system, but also has a background in talking about how neural circuits encode meaning. This will be an opportunity for me to go back and find some interesting results to discuss. We may also highlight the questions of information theory and oscillatory behavior in neural circuits, which covers researchers like Pascal Fries, John Huguenard, and David McCormick. I'll update this part with a more specific paper when I find a good one. <br />
<br />
'''Timing?''' Right now I'll focus on Wednesday morning, June 11. Please let me know below if you're interested. If it's a small group we can meet in the small library next to the main room; this might encourage discussion. And of course, let me know if there's something within this area in which you're more or less interested.<br />
<br />
Cheers, [[Rory_Sayres | Rory]]<br />
<br />
I'll be there Wednesday AM. Teach me, oh wise Neuroscientist! [[Nish_Aravamudan|Nish]]<br />
<br />
Hellsyeah. [[Christopher Vitale|Chris]]<br />
<br />
cool [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
Cool tutorial. By the way, who is the tutor? [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
* I gave the tutorial. Thanks for coming! BTW, if you'd like some follow-up, I'm setting a time to talk about these things (w/o necessarily turning into a project) at the [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Projects_%26_Working_Groups#Something_in_Neuroscience |working group]] page. [[User:Sayres|Sayres]] 17:37, 12 June 2008 (MDT)<br />
<br />
==Network Economics and Value Theory: From Marx to Complexity==<br />
<br />
What is Value? Where does Wealth come from? Does Capital really make money from nowhere, and if so, how? How does complexity studies change our picture of value theory, in economics and beyond?<br />
<br />
We'll likely start off with Marx's three levels of value (use, exchange, surplus), move to his theories on production, formulas for capital, commodity fetishism, sticky points of his famous 'labor theory of value,' then on to his analysis of modes of production, and his thesis on the falling rate of profit that was supposed to bring down capitalism (but which obviously didn't). From there we could discuss critiques/updates of this theory via the growth of Keynesianism/Stalinism/Neoliberalism, in order to get to David Harvey's new work on how neoliberal economies largely avoid demand crises by engineering carefully managed accumulation crises whose effects can be easily passed off to poorer nations using multi-national postwar institutions like the IMF/WTO. This leads to examples of how networked models can help us understand today's economic crises (for example, how evolutionary search models can help us understand the ways in which 'overleveraging' economies via 'market derivatives' can help funnel capital to hedge funds in rich countries). From there we could look at critiques of economic theories of value, particularly Deleuze and Guattari's notion of 'desiring-production' as that which links production of commodities to the production of consumers by the social unit of production, namely, the family, and how even this model needs to be rethought in terms of shifts in mass media. Other topics could include theories of network political activism, namely those of Hardt and Negri (Empire/Multitude) and Ernesto Laclau on social dislocations and crisis management via counterhegemonic blocs. <br />
<br />
<br />
Do you know anything about Debord's interpretation of Marxism in term of spectacle? I read the society of spectacle and the commentaries and would be cool to have a discussion [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]] <br />
<br />
yeah, we can discuss Debord, sure! [[User:Chris|Chris]]<br />
<br />
== Topological and Symbolic Dynamical Systems ==<br />
<br />
I would like to address the perceived interest among [[Jacob_Foster|few]] of us here in topics relating to the topological dynamics and symbolic dynamics. I can talk a bit about ideas relating to the topological properties of dynamical systems and systems with very little structure to them (i.e., systems whose state spaces are merely a hausdorff space and a dynamic shift which is a continuous function). The symbolic dynamics part will deal with spaces of sequences of symbols and the dynamics being a shift map. I would like to wrap things up with a powerful tool - topological conjugacy - which allows us to define an 'equivalence' between two dynamical systems, one of which might be easier to understand and analyze. Ideally, this discussion will come after my topology tutorial, but I'll spend a few minutes describing formally and intuitively, the terms I use. Alternatively, we can form small discussion groups and chat about this over a cup of tea. [[Srideep_Musuvathy|srideep]]<br />
<br />
absolutely interested. [[Christopher Vitale|Chris]]<br />
<br />
Interested! [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
== Economics & Finance 101 ==<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> [[Econ101 Tutorial.ppt|Slides]]<br />
<br />
A 1 hour mini crash-course on the basic principles of Economics and Finance. The aim of this tutorial is -hopefully- to give a heads up for the upcoming Economics/Finance week for people who do not have a background in Economics. <br />
I will introduce 3 simple models of microeconomics, macroeconomics and finance that can give an idea of what economists do. [[Carlos_Yepez|Carlos]]<br />

==Theory of computation==<br />
[[Adam_Campbell|Adam Campbell]] will be holding a tutorial on the theoretical side of Computer Science. This will be a high level overview of the mathematical foundation on which computability theory is based and won't be a discussion on practical algorithms or programming methods. I will discuss Turing Machines, the various classes of problems (P, NP, NP-Complete, etc.), decidability, computational complexity, etc. What does it mean when an algorithm is in O(n), O(n^2), etc.? What makes a problem in NP-Complete, and how can you take your problem and prove that it is in NP-Complete or in P? What is the P = NP question all about? These questions and more will be discussed.<br />
<br />
The tutorial is scheduled for: [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Schedule#Week_Three_-_FINANCE/ECONOMY|June 16 at 6:00pm]].<br />
<br />
It sounds great! I would very appreaciate if you add some contents about K-SAT and CSP. Thanks. [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
<br />
==Economics of Public Policy==<br />
There seems to be some interest in an introduction to the ways us free-market types think about the role of government and public policy. I'll introduce models that describe some of the most common types of market failures and the basic approaches one can take to solving (or improving) those failures. We'll survey imperfect competition, asymmetric information, and the role of property rights. You might enjoy this tutorial if you want to learn more about microeconomics, wish you understood jargon like "externalities" or "moral hazard", or if you are curious about dysfunctions in academia and policy-making in your field. [[Abigail_Brown | Abby]]<br />

== The big opensource tutorial ==<br />
<br />
=== Open Source research software ===<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> [[Opensource software tutorial|Tutorial]] scheduled on Monday 9 from 7:00p<br />
<br />
Open (no pun intended...) your eyes to the wonderful world of FOSS -- Free and Open Source Software. While the distinction between Free and Open Source is a very interesting one (and highly contentious in the right crowds), for research purposes, we want to use the best tools for the job but some of us suffer from limited income, so I would like to talk about both. At the same time, FOSS is great to use for a non-economic reason: if you find bugs, or design extensions, you can fix them yourself (in OSS, at least) or at least report the problem back to a typically active community. Some potential tools to discuss/explore: R, Octave, Scilab, Gnuplot, perhaps some of the more useful languages in the field like Python and perhaps others I don't know as much about (a quick `apt-cache` on my Ubuntu Hardy install shows RasMol, ClustalW, SeaView, Achilles, complearn, EMBOSS, GENESIS, etc...)<br />
<br />
- I would like to give a "Brazilian" contribution. Those who are interested in GIS&Cia could have a look at [http://www.dpi.inpe.br/gilberto/software.html Free and Open Source GIS Source]. <br />
[[Flavia_Feitosa|Flavia]]<br />
<br />
I would be happy to contribute a little bit about freely available simulation environments like ns-2 (computer networks) and omnet++ (a generic DES) -- Laura<br />
<br />
- For Python I can offer a tutorial (see below). Nish, do you have any experience with [http://www.sagemath.org/ Sage]? [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
All great ideas and I would love to have more of a "You know how to use this tool or you know of this tool, you talk about it" style of tutorial :)<br />
Maybe we can do a general OSS tutorial/discussion and then transition to specific sub-topics in separate tutorials (Python, GIS, networks, etc)?<br />
I've not used Sage, before, but I'm happy to take a look before the tutorial. Thanks for the info, Giovanni!<br />
<br />
<br><br />
I'd like to learn more about open software. [[Holger_Keeler| Paul]]<br />
<br />
Some subtopics that we'll cover:<br />
<br />
==== R tutorial ====<br />
<br />
I (''[[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]'') know a little bit about R (basic stuff such as common plots and regression analysis) but would like to enhance my R skills. Does anybody have an interest in a R tutorial, too? Please edit this if there is more interest.<br />
<br />
I am fairly familiar with R and could probably run a tutorial... what are you all interested in <br />
learning? - Skyler<br />
*I'd just like to get an understanding of some of it's practical uses. -Devin<br />
*Do you familiar with running social network analysis package in R? I want to learn more about it. [[Jiang_Wu| Jiang]]<br />

==== Python tutorial ====<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> Thank you to everybody who showed up for the tutorial. This [http://www.inf.unisi.ch/phd/ciampaglia/python.tar.gz tarball] contains all the scripts I've shown during the tutorial plus two more that do actually something interesting. To run logistic.py you will need installed [http://numpy.org numpy], [http://scipy.org scipy] and [http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/ matplotlib]. You can easily install all these packages using [http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/EasyInstall easy_install], a tool that lets you download, build and install python packages from the command line (e.g. try "easy_install matplotlib" from the shell)<br />
<br />
I've (''also [[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]'') interest in a Python tutorial. Please edit this if there is more interest.<br />
<br />
I can give a tutorial on python and on scipy/numpy. I can also talk about coding in general, as python is both a languange which is object oriented, imperative and functional (somehow). We can use the [http://docs.python.org/tut/tut.html python tutorial] itself as a reference for the part about the language, and then move to the basic concepts of the duo [http://numpy.org numpy] / [http://scipy.org scipy], which form a powerful tool to manipulate n-dimensional arrays of numbers and also talk about [http://ipython.scipy.org/moin/ ipython] (the enhanced interactive shell) and the [http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/ pylab] interface, which gives a very nice environment for interactive programming and data analysis. Since pylab has been designed to mimic MATLAB's interface (the major plotting/statistical functions work as expected in both enviroments, which saves you a lot of time if you're used to MATLAB), I can also talk a bit about MATLAB, but being not a big fan of it, it would be better if somebody else stepped in to another tutorial on that. <br />
<br />
Leave a mark if interested! [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
I'd be interested in this as well [[User: Mark | Mark]]<br/><br />

<br />
== Neutral models in biology ==<br />
<br />
Already met. Big thanks to Molly! <br />
<br />
There is an interesting [http://arxiv.org/abs/0710.4911 paper] by Cosma Shalizi of SFI about methodological problems in social sciences research in which he talks about the concept of neutral models in evolution models. I was wondering if any of the bio-people can give a tutorial on this topic as I am pretty interested in understanding the concept. [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
I would be very interested in learning about neutral networks too! - Skyler<br />
<br />
== GIS / Spatial Analysis ==<br />
<br />
Space Matters!! Geographical information system (GIS) is a computational system (hardware + database engine) that is designed to assemble, store, update, analyze, manipulate, and display geographically referenced information (data identified by their locations).<br />
<br />
I'm thinking about introducing some basic GIS concepts and a free GIS software known as [http://www.dpi.inpe.br/~flavia/GIS/ Terraview]. We could also explore some spatial analysis techniques (this is the best part!) using Terraview and [http://www.geoda.uiuc.edu/downloadin.php GeoDa] (also free!). <br />
<br />
<br />
Please edit here if you are interested or send me an email. [mailto:flafeitosa@gmail.com Flávia]<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> It has been scheduled on Friday, June 13 from 1:30 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.<br />
<br />
<br />
I'm in [[Walter_Zesk|Walt]]<br/><br />
I'd do this. &mdash;[[User:Jreyes|Josh]]<br/><br />
let me know, I'm in, Sonja<br/><br />
Me too. &mdash;[[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br/><br />
Can not wait for this! Rio<br><br />
Me too. [[Kathleen_Sprouffske|Kathleen]]<br><br />
Sounds like fun. If people are interested, I can bring some data sets to play around with. Alex<br />
<br />
== Statistical Physics for Non-Physicists == <br />
Problem: Textbooks about this are written for physicists. <br />
Solution: A Physicist (or mathematician) that would be so kind and spend few minutes (or maybe hours) to explain all that stuff to people like me(Petr):-)<br />
<br />
[[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]: Do you seek for a general introduction or something specific?<br />
<br />
A crash course in Statistical Physics would be awesome. Let us know. &mdash; [[User:cyepez|Carlos]]<br />
<br />
I am interested too. (Soumya)<br />
<br />
Me too. (Jean)<br />
<br />
Interested! [[User:Meritxell|Meritxell]]<br />
<br />
Interested! [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
Ditto - Skyler<br />
<br />
Me too. &mdash;[[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br/><br />
<br />
Me three. [[User:RobMills|RobMills]]<br />
<br />
I'd be willing to run such a tutorial. However, I would have to consult with some/all of the interested parties to find out what kind of statphys you want to learn about. There are a huge number of possible topics, one could start with basics like ensembles, or perhaps people are interested in master equation and other non-equilibrium techniques, or maybe critical phenomena is what people are interested in. I really do not know. (Orion)<br />
<br />
Can you give us who are not physicists an introduction about a kind of special questions that you will think it from the viewpoint of physicists? Like complex network, dynamic, also something else, what is the most important measurement and dynamic process you want to observe? -[[Jiang_Wu|Jiang]]<br />
<br />
Check out this book: http://pages.physics.cornell.edu/sethna/StatMech/ [[Petr Svarc|Petr]]<br />
<br />
== Modern Logic and Reasoning ==<br />
Like I mentioned in the 'ice-breaking', I could tell something about application of modern logic into human reasoning. It's a very board topic, and very new. Criticisms are welcome and needed. I would give some basic examples. On top of that, I would also say some development of logic, and how I found it useful in research, which might seem un-related to logic, esp. in social science. I am planning to give a 15 to 20 minutes presentation, UNLESS people want to hear more, in that case, please let me know.<br />

<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> Time at June 10th, 03.15 p.m. - 03.35 p.m.<br />
[[CSSS 2008 Santa Fe-Schedule]]<br />
<br />
== Introduction to the Design and Analysis of Computer Experiments ==<br />
How do you find "interesting" behavior when your computer model is too slow or the inputs are too many to try every possible combination? Using an Arctic sea ice simulator example, I will show you how modern statistical methods can help you explore your virtual world more efficiently. Check out this brief<br />
[http://www.stat.sfu.ca/~dbingham/NICDS_CompExpt/research.html overview] or a more technical paper about<br />
[http://www.schonlau.net/publication/jogo98.pdf global optimization]. Also see [http://www.gaussianprocess.org/ Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning] for a list of available resources. [[B%C3%A9la_Nagy|Béla]]<br />
<br />
<br />
== Genomics / Central dogma overview ==<br />
It seems like some of you might be interested in an overview of the central dogma of molecular biology to non-biologists. This could be an 1h tutorial on the major actors of gene expression: nucleus, chromosomes, chromatine, DNA, RNA (tRNA, mRNA), proteins, polymerases, ribosomes, transcription factors, and eventually a quick intro to small, non-coding RNAs as a bonus. Although being a bioinformatician by training, I'm happy to leave the way if a "hard core" biologist wants to do this tutorial (Molly ?). Edit if interested! Jean<br />
<br />
I'd be happy to attend a tutorial in 'genomics for idiots' -- Laura<br />
<br />
Me too. I am also interested in metagenomics if this is not too much of course. -- Francois<br />
<br />
I'd like to go to a 'genomics for idiots' tutorial as well. -- [[Srideep_Musuavthy|srideep]]<br />
<br />
Ok, so I'll prepare some slides. How about Monday 9th, 5p - 6p (location TBA) ? -- Jean<br />
<br />
Nice tutorial. [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
<br />
== Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning ==<br />
I (Nish) could introduce some of the basic methods in AI/ML. If there is significant interest in the two fields separately, I could do two tutorials. Would probably focus on the higher level, rather than the nitty-gritty details, as well as applications of the methods to real problems. I'm not necessarily an expert, although have a fair amount of experience in the area, so I would prefer a more interactive session, where questions can be answered by everyone.<br />
<br />
Sign me up. &mdash; [[User:cyepez|Carlos]]<br><br />
I'm also interested. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]] <br><br />
Me too! [[Flavia_Feitosa|Flávia]]<br />
<br />
How about "AI/MI for dummies", Nish? I've been wondering about it.... Rio<br />
<br />
sounds good [[Riley_Crane]]<br />
<br />
nice [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
<br />
== A Crash Course to Classical and Evolutionary Game Theory ==<br />
Game theory is the study of interactive decision making. Classical game theory aims to develop a general theory to describe how rational agents interact strategically. In many cases humans lack the kind of infinite computational power and time assumed by classical game theory. In the early 1970s the biologist John Maynard Smith introduced evolutionary methods to the field, dispensing with the assumption of hyper-rationality while changing many of the concepts central to the field along the way. The result was evolutionary game theory. This new framework has been used to model the behavior of fundamentally non-rational players (such as viruses) as well as humans. <br />
<br />
In this tutorial, I'd try to introduce the basic concepts in both of these fields, namely, the definition of a game, payoffs, the Nash equilibirum and evolutionarily stable strategies, the replicator dynamics. I'll briefly mention the three basic classes of two-strategy games represented by the Prisoner's Dilemma, the Snowdrift Game (sometimes called the Hawk-Dove game or Chicken), and the Stag Hunt Game. Depending on particular interests of the group, we could prove the Bishop-Cannings theorem and give a classification of all symmetric two-strategy games; or look at updating methods and spatial chaos; reputation and image scoring; rock-paper-scissors in biological systems; or evolutionary branching and specialization.<br />
<br />
If there's something else you'd like to know about EGT, shoot me ([mailto:joshua.reyes@removeme.gmail.com Josh]) an email, and I'll see if I can dig up something I know on your topic. I'm not going to require any fancy mathematical background. If you've seen a 2&times;2 matrix before, great. Otherwise, it's not a big deal. We won't multiply them or calculate their eigenvalues. They'll just serve as a means for bookkeeping.<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Note:</span> Some of us are also thinking about setting up a [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Projects_%26_Working_Groups#Evolutionary_Game_Theory|working group]] as well.<br/><br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update:</span> The next meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, June 10 from 7&ndash;8pm in a location TBD.<br />

== Resilience of social-ecological systems ==<br />
The resilience perspective is increasingly used as an approach for understanding the dynamics of social–ecological systems. Essential for the resilience perspective is the recognition that living systems are not in equilibrium but rather in a domain of attraction. <br />
Many dynamic systems, however, have multiple domains of attraction. Moreover, self-organizing processes can create or change the shape and depth of this domain of attraction. Within the resilience perspective, new pathways of sustainable development can be represented by crossing a threshold from a domain of attraction and/or by creating new domains. Resilience is a measure of how much change or disruption is required to transform a system from being maintained by one set of mutually reinforcing processes and structures to a different set of processes and structures.<br />
If you are interested we (Mike and Dirk) can introduce you to some of the insights developed by the [http://www.resalliance.org/1.php resiliance alliance] and the challenges we face in understanding these kind of systems.<br />
<br />
I am interested in this too. Richard<br />
<br />
Very interested, any idea of when you will do it? [[Walter_Zesk|Walt]]<br />
<br />
I'm interested as well. Steve<br />
<br />
I'm interested too. - Skyler<br />
<br />
I think to contribute from my previous work on SES. Rio<br />
<br />
== Introduction to classical control theory ==<br />
I (Srideep) can offer a 'quick' tutorial on control theory/control systems. This is will be a simple introduction to the motivation, basic ideas, issues and jargon in the field. If you are interested, please let me know about your background in linear algebra, complex analysis and calculus. Depending on the background, I might spend more or less time introducing the field. <br />
<br />
Ideally, if you know what eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix are, what a pole of a complex function is and how the solution of a linear differential equation looks like, you are ready to jump right into controls. If the words above don't mean much at all, then we can run a quick 'review' of what they mean intuitively. <br />
you can sign up here or send me an email [mailto:srideep.musuvathy@gmail.com srideep]<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> Lets plan on discussing this early next week. Will fix up a time by the end of this week. Liz bradley will be done with her introduction to dynamics and the eigenvalue, eigenvector tutorial will be done this friday. This will make my life easier! :-)<br />
<br />
I'd be very interested in this tutorial. I think I'm basically OK on the prerequisites, <br />
but I wouldn't be annoyed by a review. Perhaps Monday? -- Laura<br />
<br />
I'm in too. I guess I should be ok on linear algebra, calculus and linear ODEs, but I don't know what the pole of a complex function is. Jean<br />
<br />
I'm in. If we can start with 'pole' thing, that would be wonderful. - Masayoshi<br />
<br />
Hi Srideep, please put me in this group. About my background on the subjects you asked; zero!!! Sorry. Rio<br />
<br />
Definitely interested in this. - Jacob<br />
<br />
I'm in. Paul<br />
<br />
Looks cool. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]]<br />
<br />
Me too! [[Rory_Sayres|Rory]]<br />
<br />
I'm interested. Don't have any complex analysis background though. [[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br />
<br />
Sounds good. I'm in. [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
<br />
== Topology/algebra ==<br />
I (Srideep) will also be happy to talk about topology, introducing the concepts of point-set topology. The language of modern mathematics is enshrined in the concepts of point-set topology. I can also talk about group theory and introduce abstract algebra to those interested. In my opinion, it is the most powerful gateway into abstract thinking. sign here or email me [mailto:srideep.musuvathy@gmail.com srideep]<br />
<br />
I'd be very interested in that. Jean<br />
<br />
I'd be interested to see what you cover in the topology section. Algebra, however, is for the birds :) Paul<br />
<br />
Srideep, can you do an introduction to category theory? Or would you be interested in co-organizing a tutorial with me? - Jacob<br />
<br />
I'm very interested. Abby<br />
<br />
Sounds like fun (Chris)<br />
<br />
Interested. Category theory also would be fun [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
== Eigenvalues - what are they and how to find them? ==<br />
I (Kolbjørn) can put together a brief and elementary introduction to eigenvalues and eigenvectors if anyone have an urge for this. Sign up or e-mail and we'll schedule something. [mailto:kolbjorn@chalmers.se Kolbjørn]<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">UPDATE 06062008: SLIDES</span><br />
<br />
[http://www.santafe.edu/events/workshops/images/e/e7/Linear_algebra_tutorial.pdf Tutorial slides]<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">UPDATE!</span> Time: Friday June 6th, 01.00 p.m. - 03.00 p.m. If this collides with other stuff, please yell out! [[CSSS 2008 Santa Fe-Schedule]]<br />
<br />
Yes please. [[Kathleen_Sprouffske|Kathleen]]<br />
<br />
I am also very interested [[Walter_Zesk|Walt]]<br />
<br />
I'm in as well [[ Mark_Rivera|Mark]]<br />
<br />
Please - have always been kind of confusing to me. [[Jonathan_Zelner|Jon]]<br />
<br />
Let me in - Masayoshi<br />
<br />
I'm also interested! [[ Flavia_Feitosa|Flavia]]<br />
<br />
I'll be there. -[[Molly_Rorick|Molly]]<br />
<br />
I'm in as well. -[[Tanja_Gesell|Tanja]]<br />
<br />
Me too! '''Just to remind'''; I think Classical and Evolutionary Game Theory (Josh)will be started at 3 PM. Rio<br />
<br />
== How your computer works ==<br />
<br />
Nish and Laura can give a joint tutorial on 'how your computer works'. What happens when I type 'www.santafe.edu' in my browser? How does a web server at santafe.edu handle all those incoming requests? What happens when I use a WiFi access point? Basically, we'd be happy to take your questions about how your computer works and do our best to answer them - we're also happy to have other co-tutors. <br />
<br />
Let us know if there's interest [mailto:lmfeeney@sics.se Laura], we'd probably schedule later next week, to not conflict with tutorials that focus on maths and other project prerequisites.<br />
<br />
I would love this. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]]<br />
<br />
== How your hardware works ==<br />
Along the same lines as the computer tutorial, I've found myself discussing hardware with a number of folks. And why hardware matters from a massive parallelism perspective (which is quite common in the complex research areas I've encountered). If folks are interested, I can give a rough overview of the way hardware works in different types of computers and supercomputers (as much as I understand of it) as well as how to best leverage that knowledge.<br />
<br />
Not sure how this differs from the the one above it, but def. interested (Chris)<br />
<br />
== Computational Physics for Non-physicists or A small introduction into Applied Physics ==<br />
<br />
I've seen that many people are interested in physics. I could give an introduction to "computational" physics - this means physics with a PC. Actually, it is very broad and gives some basics for simulations (interesting for all simulation-folks):<br />
<br />
- What is a 'random number generator' and why should I know something about it?<br />
<br />
- What are Master-equations?<br />
<br />
- The Ising-model / Voter-model<br />
<br />
- The Central Limit Theorem or why does it make sense to average over multiple runs of a simulation?<br />
<br />
- ...<br />
<br />
[[Ruben Kubiak|Ruben]]<br />
<br />
I'm very interested [[Nish_Aravamudan|Nish]]<br />
<br />
I'm in too. [[Jiang_Wu|Jiang]]<br />
<br />
[[Srideep_Musuvathy|srideep]] is in.<br />
Sounds great. [[Molly_Rorick|Molly]]<br />
<br />
Looking forward to it. [[Petr Svarc|Petr]]<br />
<br />
Interested [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
<br />
Check out this book: http://pages.physics.cornell.edu/sethna/StatMech/ [[Petr Svarc|Petr]]<br />
<br />
==Information Theory==<br />
An open discussion of Shannon information theory (would like some help in presenting this part clearly) and then some newer results from its application to cellular automata (and potentially other complex systems).<br />
<br />
Interesting. I remember something from the master course I took. [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br><br />
I'd love to participate. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]]<br><br />
I'm interested.[[Holger_Keeler|Paul]]<br><br />
I'm in. --[[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br />
<br />
I'm in. --[[User:meritxell|Meritxell]]<br />
<br />
FYI: Tom Carter is going to be talking about Information Theory a bit tomorrow from 2-3pm, not sure of a location yet, but its on the schedule.<br />
<br />
==Cellular Automata==<br />
CAs (particularly ECAs) are a very interested model of computation. How do 8 rules (ECA 110, e.g.) emulate a Turing Machine? Why is that interesting? What can we learn about what defines computation given CAs? Maybe we can also discuss some simple computational (Turing) theory.<br />
<br />
I'd go to that twice. &mdash;[[User:Jreyes|Josh]]<br />
<br />
Sounds like fun. [[Christopher Vitale|Chris]]<br />
<br />
==A little analytical tool-box: Non-linear dynamics, ODEs, PDEs...==<br />
The [[David_Foster|Brothers]] [[Jacob_Foster|Foster]] would be happy to offer some tutorials on analytical methods. Depending on what Alfred Hubler covers, we can do some fraction of Strogatz (flows on the line & circle, bifurcations, maybe linear systems, index theorem, etc.), as well as offering a basic introduction to solving linear ODEs (no theorems, just techniques) and simple PDEs like the heat equation, with boundary conditions. Ideally this would come after Kolbjørn's eigen-stuff course, so we can just assume familiarity with that.<br />
<br />
We've put a tentative time for our tutorial on the schedule: [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Schedule#Week_Three_-_FINANCE/ECONOMY|June 16 at 3:15pm]]. Let us know if this doesn't work out for some reason and we can try to change it.<br />
<br />
'''Update!''' Looking at the amount of material it's clear we'll have to break this into two. We'll start with a linear ODE/PDE tutorial, going through most of the basic techniques. We'll schedule a subsequent one on non-linear techniques soon.<br />
<br />
<br />
These are fun topics! I never get enough of them! -- [[Srideep_Musuvathy|srideep]]<br><br />
Sounds great. [[Molly_Rorick|Molly]]<br><br />
Interesting -- sure. [[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br><br />
Very useful! [[Kathleen_Sprouffske|Kathleen]]<br><br />
Need this.... Rio <br><br />
I'm in! [[Flavia_Feitosa|Flávia]]<br />
great! [[Riley_Crane]]<br />
<br />
Brothers Foster rulez! I'll be there. [[Petr Svarc|Petr]]<br />
Count me in! [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
==Linguistics==<br />
Can someone (I don't know [[Peter_Graff|who]]) perhaps offer a tutorial on basic linguistics stuff? I am particularly interested in generative grammar and coverage of the Chomsky "Three Models" paper, but maybe there are more interesting topics to be discussed these days... -Jacob<br />
<br />
I could easily do a Saussure/Pierce tutorial, along with how this has been applied from everything to kinship structure to film theory to table manners, but this is continental structural linguistics, very diff from the chomsky stuff. I think Peter Graff can do the chomsky stuff, though, perhaps we could work on this together (Chris)<br />
<br />
Would love both tutorials. Esp. the kinship structure stuff (is this Andre Weil's algebra chapter on kinship, from Levi-Strauss I think?) -Jacob<br />
<br />
I'd love to participate. -Tanja<br />
<br />
==Fitting models to data==<br />
A few people have asked me for a brief review of fitting models to data, but I'd like to know what methods interest you. I could start with least squares and progress to Bayesian approaches, maximum likelihood, and some more recent developments in methods for exploring space (GAs, particle filters, MCMC) with which I'm familiar. I'm by no means an expert in all these topics, so please add your name below if there's something you'd like to learn about (a particular method or method for a particular context) or teach. I feel like this tutorial would be most appropriate for the third or fourth week. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]]<br />
<br />
I am really interested in this. (Soumya)<br />
<br />
cool [[Riley_Crane]]<br />
<br />
I am interested in this, especially in various regression approaches and Bayesian inference. [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
<br />
==Semiotics, Sign Systems, and the Mind==<br />
<br />
UPDATE: TUTORIAL NOW SCHEDULED MONDAY NIGHT, 4:30-6 - bring dinner with you to coffee shop!<br />
<br />
This tutorial will be a general overview of theories of language (Saussure, Pierce, French Structuralism, Lacan) and how they impact philosophy of mind (Freud, Fodor, Minsky, Edelman, ANNs). No previous knowledge of any of this stuff needed!<br />
<br />
Probably start off with the first real theory of language and the brain, Freud's topological theory, and then move to how this was absorbed into structuralist linguistics/semiotics in the 1950's (Saussure's theory of signifiers, Jakobsen on axes of discourse, paradigms/syntagms, metaphoric value transfer, and how this was applied to kinship structures, social institutions, etc.) From there we could look at how Jacques Lacan built upon this with his 'mathemic' algebraic notation for discourse analysis. We could then look at how networked theories of mind challenge both the Lacanian model and its American counterparts (Fodor's psychosemantics, for example), particularly in regard to connectionist architectures in artificial neural networks, and how this leads to more distributed notions of linguistic structure. These new paradigms can allow us to move beyond notions of discrete 'signs' existing somewhere in the brain to models based on research in microfeature maps, dynamic network synchronization, spreading activation, and feature vectores. When synthesized with Lacan's insights, and blended with some ideas from object-relations theory and by thinkers like Marvin Minsky and Gerald Edelman, its possible to come up with models that actually reflect the impact of complex systems theories. Likely wayy too much stuff to squeeze in, but certainly enough to get a conversation going, even if we don't get to half of it! <br />

== Questions at the Intersection of Neuroscience and Complexity ==<br />
<br />
This tutorial met Wedenesday AM (June 11). Thanks to everyone who showed up! We'll continue the discussion of these topics as a [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Projects_%26_Working_Groups#Something_in_Neuroscience |working group]].<br />
<br />
Related to Chris' proposal above, but perhaps on the flip side, I'd be happy to give a tutorial / lead a discussion on issues where questions of complexity intersect with problems in neuroscience. I'll distinguish this topic from the idea above, in that I'll focus a bit more on bottom-up questions rather than purely theory-motivated questions. Neuroscience is a very large field, so I'll talk about some of the things I know, but encourage others to bring their own knowledge and curiosity. <br />
<br />
I'll start with a short background on neuroanatomy of humans and other species. Then I'll do a survey of what's sometimes termed "systems neuroscience". This is the branch of neuroscience that asks about behavior roughly on the level of neural circuits -- but which often jumps up and down scales, and overlaps pretty significantly with ideas in "cognitive neuroscience" where the focus is on a lot of the interesting, higher-order behaviors unique to relatively few species. Then I'll go over a couple of papers which I think start on a road to using complex systems. Examples of what I might talk about would be:<br />
<br />
* [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17428910?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum Kiani et al J. Neurophys 2007] '''Does the visual system naturally group objects into heirarchical categories?''' These authors tried to apply some dimensionality reduction techniques to neural data from monkey inferotemporal cortex. The ideas from Dr. Newman's lectures may be very appropriate here.<br />
* [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17660812?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum Assisi et al. Nature Neuroscience 2007] '''Sparseness in representation of odors'''. The Laurent lab has been combining high-quality experimental methods in the insect olfactory system with computational models (including network models) to look at how the insect system (and more recently the mammalian system) represent odors. The system presents a very interesting contrast to the visual system, in terms of the sparseness of representations at the early levels. There's some elegant circuitry mapped out here. '''BONUS QUESTION!''' I remember one of the questions they investigated earlier was how locusts transition from 'happy grasshopper' mode to 'Biblical swarm' mode. This has something to do with olfaction. This population behavior is probably a very intersting bifurcation; we can dig into what this reflects.<br />
* [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18047414?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum Machens and Brody, Neural Computation 2008]. [[http://www.molbio.princeton.edu/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=335 Carlos Brody]] does a lot of work on how neural circuits dynamics can allow for short term memory behavior. This includes comparing a perceived sensation to something you experienced a few seconds or minutes ago, and constructing an internal sense of how time elapses. His group uses tools like attractor networks to model this behavior.<br />
* '''Walter Freeman's work'''. Freeman studies the mammalian visual system, but also has a background in talking about how neural circuits encode meaning. This will be an opportunity for me to go back and find some interesting results to discuss. We may also highlight the questions of information theory and oscillatory behavior in neural circuits, which covers researchers like Pascal Fries, John Huguenard, and David McCormick. I'll update this part with a more specific paper when I find a good one. <br />
<br />
'''Timing?''' Right now I'll focus on Wednesday morning, June 11. Please let me know below if you're interested. If it's a small group we can meet in the small library next to the main room; this might encourage discussion. And of course, let me know if there's something within this area in which you're more or less interested.<br />
<br />
Cheers, [[Rory_Sayres | Rory]]<br />
<br />
I'll be there Wednesday AM. Teach me, oh wise Neuroscientist! [[Nish_Aravamudan|Nish]]<br />
<br />
Hellsyeah. [[Christopher Vitale|Chris]]<br />
<br />
cool [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
Cool tutorial. By the way, who is the tutor? [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
* I gave the tutorial. Thanks for coming! BTW, if you'd like some follow-up, I'm setting a time to talk about these things (w/o necessarily turning into a project) at the [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Projects_%26_Working_Groups#Something_in_Neuroscience |working group]] page. [[User:Sayres|Sayres]] 17:37, 12 June 2008 (MDT)<br />
<br />
==Network Economics and Value Theory: From Marx to Complexity==<br />
<br />
What is Value? Where does Wealth come from? Does Capital really make money from nowhere, and if so, how? How does complexity studies change our picture of value theory, in economics and beyond?<br />
<br />
We'll likely start off with Marx's three levels of value (use, exchange, surplus), move to his theories on production, formulas for capital, commodity fetishism, sticky points of his famous 'labor theory of value,' then on to his analysis of modes of production, and his thesis on the falling rate of profit that was supposed to bring down capitalism (but which obviously didn't). From there we could discuss critiques/updates of this theory via the growth of Keynesianism/Stalinism/Neoliberalism, in order to get to David Harvey's new work on how neoliberal economies largely avoid demand crises by engineering carefully managed accumulation crises whose effects can be easily passed off to poorer nations using multi-national postwar institutions like the IMF/WTO. This leads to examples of how networked models can help us understand today's economic crises (for example, how evolutionary search models can help us understand the ways in which 'overleveraging' economies via 'market derivatives' can help funnel capital to hedge funds in rich countries). From there we could look at critiques of economic theories of value, particularly Deleuze and Guattari's notion of 'desiring-production' as that which links production of commodities to the production of consumers by the social unit of production, namely, the family, and how even this model needs to be rethought in terms of shifts in mass media. Other topics could include theories of network political activism, namely those of Hardt and Negri (Empire/Multitude) and Ernesto Laclau on social dislocations and crisis management via counterhegemonic blocs. <br />
<br />
<br />
Do you know anything about Debord's interpretation of Marxism in term of spectacle? I read the society of spectacle and the commentaries and would be cool to have a discussion [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]] <br />
<br />
yeah, we can discuss Debord, sure! [[User:Chris|Chris]]<br />
<br />
== Topological and Symbolic Dynamical Systems ==<br />
<br />
I would like to address the perceived interest among [[Jacob_Foster|few]] of us here in topics relating to the topological dynamics and symbolic dynamics. I can talk a bit about ideas relating to the topological properties of dynamical systems and systems with very little structure to them (i.e., systems whose state spaces are merely a hausdorff space and a dynamic shift which is a continuous function). The symbolic dynamics part will deal with spaces of sequences of symbols and the dynamics being a shift map. I would like to wrap things up with a powerful tool - topological conjugacy - which allows us to define an 'equivalence' between two dynamical systems, one of which might be easier to understand and analyze. Ideally, this discussion will come after my topology tutorial, but I'll spend a few minutes describing formally and intuitively, the terms I use. Alternatively, we can form small discussion groups and chat about this over a cup of tea. [[Srideep_Musuvathy|srideep]]<br />
<br />
absolutely interested. [[Christopher Vitale|Chris]]<br />
<br />
Interested! [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
== Economics & Finance 101 ==<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> [[Econ101 Tutorial.ppt|Slides]]<br />
<br />
A 1 hour mini crash-course on the basic principles of Economics and Finance. The aim of this tutorial is -hopefully- to give a heads up for the upcoming Economics/Finance week for people who do not have a background in Economics. <br />
I will introduce 3 simple models of microeconomics, macroeconomics and finance that can give an idea of what economists do. [[Carlos_Yepez|Carlos]]<br />

==Theory of computation==<br />
[[Adam_Campbell|Adam Campbell]] will be holding a tutorial on the theoretical side of Computer Science. This will be a high level overview of the mathematical foundation on which computability theory is based and won't be a discussion on practical algorithms or programming methods. I will discuss Turing Machines, the various classes of problems (P, NP, NP-Complete, etc.), decidability, computational complexity, etc. What does it mean when an algorithm is in O(n), O(n^2), etc.? What makes a problem in NP-Complete, and how can you take your problem and prove that it is in NP-Complete or in P? What is the P = NP question all about? These questions and more will be discussed.<br />
<br />
The tutorial is scheduled for: [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Schedule#Week_Three_-_FINANCE/ECONOMY|June 16 at 6:00pm]].<br />
<br />
It sounds great! I would very appreaciate if you add some contents about K-SAT and CSP. Thanks. [[Jie_Ren | Jie]]<br />
<br />
==Economics of Public Policy==<br />
There seems to be some interest in an introduction to the ways us free-market types think about the role of government and public policy. I'll introduce models that describe some of the most common types of market failures and the basic approaches one can take to solving (or improving) those failures. We'll survey imperfect competition, asymmetric information, and the role of property rights. You might enjoy this tutorial if you want to learn more about microeconomics, wish you understood jargon like "externalities" or "moral hazard", or if you are curious about dysfunctions in academia and policy-making in your field.

== Potential Projects ==<br />
<br />
=== Antagonistic interspecific interactions ===<br />
After chatting with several people about host-parasite systems and hearing some of the comments at the icebreaker, I want to see if others are interested in potential projects in this area. As a way of getting some brain storming started, I’ve just typed up some topics (these include ideas I’ve heard from others here at Santa Fe) to see if there is critical mass and an interesting question.<br />
<br />
Topics (no particular order)<br />
*'''Impact of host heterogeneity (= consumer-resource dynamics with identity issues)''': ([[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]] writes:) Most ecological models of consumer-resource interactions assume that all consumers "view" resources the same way, i.e., each resource has only one possible phenotype. For a host-pathogen system, this means that all hosts agree on which strains are identical and which are different, since all hosts are targeting the same antigenic sites (epitopes) of the pathogen in their immune response. When pathogen strains compete in this environment, a broad range of cool dynamics result ([http://www.scienceonline.org/cgi/content/abstract/280/5365/912 Gupta et al., Science, 1998]), depending on the strength of cross-immunity. There is evidence that hosts do not mount identical immune responses when challenged with the same strain of pathogen. In other words, a pathogen's phenotype is a function of the host. How does heterogeneity in hosts' immune responses--this multiplicity of phenotypes--affect competition among pathogens? These could be important results for the field. I'm thinking of doing some simple nonlinear dynamical analysis that builds on the framework in the Gupta paper. This problem seems broadly extensible to antagonistic interactions more generally, but I can't think of specific biological examples. Anyone interested? (Talk to me or post here!)<br />
**Impact of immune system on host-parasite (/pathogen) interaction<br />
**Seems like you could add some details of host genetics and then make up a matrix that describes the fitness dependences of the pathogens for each host genotype. -Devin<br />
**Interesting paper by [http://www.pnas.org/cgi/content/abstract/104/18/7711 Recker et al (2008)] that could be interesting to discuss on this track as well. -Devin<br />
***Can the Recker article be modified by including extra host compartment to represent different host genotypes?<br />
***I'm not sure we need to add extra compartments, especially if we use a status-based approach with the ODEs. It would be worth talking about this problem in front of a blackboard. How about Thursday evening or Sunday? -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]]<br />
****Let's discuss 6pm Thursday<br />
*'''Pathogen Modularity''' I would be interested in modeling whether some aspect of pathogen modularity-based evolvability (e.g. "reassortability" or reduced evolutionary constraints between epitopes) significantly effects the evolutionary success of the pathogen. I'd love to incorporate realistic-ish parameters to get a sense for whether this kind of evolvability has a ''significant'' effect on evolutionary success, and if so, whether this significant effect is large enough that we might expect second-order selection for pathogen evolvability. --[[Molly_Rorick|Molly]]<br />
*Effects of pathogen competition on epidemic outbreaks<br />
*Spatial heterogeneity of transmission of parasites<br />
<br />
*<strike>Infectious diseases: epidemic outbreaks vs. endemic steady states</strike><br />
*<strike>Direct vs. vector transmission of parasites/pathogens</strike><br />
*<strike>Non-genetic transmission of disease resistance</strike><br />
<br />
'''Interested?''' Please add ideas that you find interesting or would like to explore more (or just your name).<br />
<br />

<br />
Epidemiology in general. -[[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]<br />
<br />
=== Biological Levels / Phenotypes Discussion ===<br />
We have a number of folks here either interested in or studying biology at various levels. I am interested in talking about ways in which it makes sense integrate different levels of biological knowledge into a representation of a system. For example, how might microRNA predictions be combined with gene expression networks (or proteomics or SNPs) to lead to a phenotype. <br />
<br />
I am also interested in questions of how phenotypes are defined. Within an organ state (e.g., disease or not) for example, a phenotype might be defined as a gene expression pattern, a growth rate, a panel of microsatellite lengths, or functionally by in vivo or ex vivo capabilities to self-renew, etc. If what we are trying to understand is a larger question of disease or functionality, which phenotypes are interesting and useful (and possible!) to use?<br />
<br />
I think these questions can be approached from a variety of ways. Off the top of my head, perhaps multi-scaled modeling or examining the system as a multi-level evolutionary system... I'm sure there are many others.<br />
<br />
If you are interested, add your name and we can set up a time / place to talk about these and related questions. Also, please add anything you might want to include in a discussion!!<br />

<br />
=== Something in Neuroscience ===<br />
I (Nish) would really like to do some more intensive, deep research in Neuroscience (Computational being my perspective). While I am fascinated by neurological and behavioral diseases, I would be open to any kind of neuroscientific problem. Anyone else?<br />
<br />
Well, I guess that's my cue! I did my Ph.D. in Neuroscience, and I'd be glad to impart what knowledge I have. What I'd really be interested in is seeing what the interesting problems are which intersect neuroscience and complexity studies. It's surprising, given the obvious complexity of the nervous system, but not many of the articles I read really use this box of tools. <br />
<br />
If other people express interest, I could organize a tutorial or small working group where I talk about some of the issues I know about in neuroscience and how they may relate to complexity. (One off the top of my head involves storing and retrieving memories, and is done by [http://www.molbio.princeton.edu/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=335 Carlos Brody] at Princeton; another possibility is applying Network Theory to functional connectivity using some new MRI-based data methods (including [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffusion_tensor_imaging Diffusion Tensor Imaging])). But more generally, I think we could expand it to be a "speculative neuroscience" discussion, in which people throw crazy ideas at each other. [[User:Sayres|Sayres]] 18:34, 4 June 2008 (MDT)<br />
<br />
=== Asymetric co-evolution in space/time ===<br />
[http://www.santafe.edu/events/workshops/index.php/Dirk_van_Apeldoorn I] would be interested studing dynamic networks that have different rates and/or distributions. You could think of a ecological interaction example of parasites that are distributed by wind and have a lifspan of a few weeks, and plants that are spatially contstraint and have an annual lifespan. Or a social-ecological example of people managing a certain natural resource.<br />
<br />
Dirk<br />
<br />
I think there may be interesting connections between this problem and one of communication networks with different rates of data transmission and transceiver availability. So I would be intersted in discussing this; alternatively I would be happy to learn more about biology... -- Laura<br />
<br />
=== Evolving skepticism ===<br />
I'd like to do anything relating to the introduction of misinformation into a system, but one concrete suggestion is looking at how one might evolve a skeptical response to defend against being "defrauded" (this could be in a social science or biological system).<br />
<br />
Abby<br />
<br />
=== if you can't grow '''Collapse''', you haven't explained it ===<br />
Gared Diamond describes a five point framework for collapse of societies.<br />
These points are:<br />
<br />
-resilience of the environment to human caused damage<br />
<br />
-climate change<br />
<br />
-hostile neighbours<br />
<br />
-friendly neighbours<br />
<br />
-society's response to its problems<br />
<br />
My proposal is to test these points in an agent based setup. we could for example use the parameter sweep etc.<br />
<br />
If you are interested, add your name and we can set up a time / place to talk about these and related questions.<br />
<br />
[http://www.santafe.edu/events/workshops/index.php/Dirk_van_Apeldoorn Dirk]<br />
<br />
I am also very interested in this [http://www.santafe.edu/events/workshops/index.php/Richard_Streeter Richard]<br />
<br />
Could we adapt this and include an urban perspective? [http://www.santafe.edu/events/workshops/index.php/Flavia_Feitosa Flávia]<br />
<br />
Everybody needs his physicist. :-) - [[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]<br />

I'm interested in this project as well. [http://www.santafe.edu/events/workshops/index.php/Steve_Hall Steve]<br />
<br />

<br />
sounds fun. hope I can be of any help... [http://www.santafe.edu/events/workshops/index.php/Francois_Ascani Francois]<br />
<br />
=== Let's make networks secure ===<br />
<br />
I'm interested in making 'secure' networks with bound resources (like it is normal in reality). This is a very general questions and has many oppurtunities. For example:<br />
<br />
- I have an epidemic and not enough vaccine - who should be vaccinated, who not?<br />
<br />
- Terrorist try to smuggle a bomb into the land of Oz. Which flights between which airports should be especially watched to minimize this risk?<br />
<br />
- How can we try to secure the internet with special anti-virus hubs? Is it possible to stop the epidemic of computer-viruses by special 'antibody' servers?<br />
<br />
This just came to my mind and if anybody has other good ideas or wants to comment this - please feel free.<br />
<br />
- [[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]<br />
<br />
<br />
- How to select nodes in the water system to detect the pollution efficiently?<br />
- How to select individulas in the social network to let advertisement to spread efficiently? <br />
- How to select blog to let people just see a small part of blog and get more information? <br />
Data mining will be useful to analyize huge dataset. [see http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~jure/pubs/detect-kdd07.pdf]<br />
-[[Jiang_Wu|Jiang]]<br />
<br />
=== Network Security Concepts Inspired by Biological and Social Systems ===<br />
Ruben – Was about to post this when I saw your entry. Sounds like we might have some overlap in our ideas…<br />
<br />
One area that I am interested in for a project is applying concepts from biological and social systems to the area of computer network security. This is a broad topic and I am hoping to generate some discussion that might lead to a more well-defined research area.<br />
<br />
In the biological area, for example, there have been recent developments in Artificial Immune Systems which borrow techniques from the immune system that enable virus detection and elimination in a self-organized and distributed manner. In particular, Stephanie Forest here at SFI has done work in this area. (see http://www.cs.unm.edu/~forrest/ , http://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/0804/0804.1266.pdf) Other interesting research has been done by John Doyle at Caltech in which he compared the “robust yet fragile” organization structures of computer and biological networks (see pages 96-111 http://www.cds.caltech.edu/~doyle/GENSIPS/GENSIPS.pdf , http://www.cds.caltech.edu/~doyle/CmplxNets/)<br />
<br />
In the social science area, I have been thinking about trust relationships and how they could apply to computer network security. Trust relationships are well established in computer networks for public key certificates. However, to my knowledge, there is no way to look at the “trust” of pieces of data in a network. Data is often scanned as it enters a network but is not tracked once it is inside to ensure that it behaves properly. This leaves many networks “hard on the outside, but soft and gooey on the inside.” One idea might be to leverage trust/reference concepts in social networks (e.g., eBay, citation networks, Amazon referrals, social websites, etc.) to construct a framework for “trusting” data throughout its lifetime in a network. For example, the more frequently that a piece of data is used effectively by an application might increase its trust. Also see http://www.mindswap.org/papers/Trust.pdf<br />
<br />
Please list your name if you have any interest in this topic. Thanks.<br />
<br />
Justin Darkoch<br />
<br />
I'm happy to help look at this topic, but I suspect that for proper interdisciplinary work you need experts in biology, not computer systems... -- [[Laura_Feeney|Laura]]<br />
<br />
=== Incorporating Data into Agent-Based Models ===<br />
The rise of the "omics" fields of biology (e.g., DNA data in genomics, protein data in proteomics, etc) have resulted in a bewildering mass of data. I'm interested in exploring how these data can be incorporated into agent-based modeling strategies. Perhaps the data-mining folks have similar issues?<br />
<br />
Perhaps this is a naive question and someone already knows about an instance where this has been successfully accomplished. If so, please forward it along to me!<br />
<br />
In any case, I'd like to do anything from just talking about this problem to creating a simple agent-based model that uses publicly-available data. For example, a simple model of bacterial or yeast growth could be coupled with gene expression data from the cell cycle. I'd be very happy to explore any other systems folks are interested in as well.<br />
<br />
[[Kathleen_Sprouffske|Kathleen]]<br />
<br />
<br />
- I understand nothing about biology, but I'm always dealing with empirical data and the challenge of incorporating it to agent-based models. So, maybe we can talk a bit about it. ([http://www.santafe.edu/events/workshops/index.php/Flavia_Feitosa Flavia])<br />
<br />
<br />
=== A Dance Evolution ===<br />
<br />
I'm interested in trying to take Liz Bradly's alphabet dancer (that we saw Monday evening) and seeing if anything interesting/aesthetic could be done in a context where a set of such modeled dancers evolve their choice of movement (and perhaps their location/orientation) based on what their neighbors are doing.<br />
<br />
My first thought was to evolve the selection of agent dance movements by analyzing how each selected movement (or perhaps simply their hand positions) temporally/spatially relate to the selected movements of its neighbors.<br />
<br />
It might be an interesting context to explore self-organization and the role of conflict and cooperation in producing interesting emergent properties.<br />
<br />
I'm thinking the primary work would be done in Netlogo. But I've noticed that Maya can be downloaded for a free 30 day trial period so the result could hopefully be visualized in 3D.<br />

<br />
=== Some ideas on modeling social media and on multi-agent modeling ===<br />
<br />
([[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]): With the term social media one can indicate the various web 2.0ish communities that are popping out on the internet these days. The following ideas come from watching Wikipedia's users community but I think there are correspondents in the other major social websites, as well on non-internet based communities (e.g. networks of scientific pubblications).<br />
* '''Ownership of encyclopedic articles'''. Wikipedia's policy is that no one can claim ownership on a wiki entry. However, some forms of ownership are sometimes tolerated e.g. when an expert on a certain topic imposes his autority on non-expert editors. While it is generally wise to let the experts user to do this (since you want experts to collaborate to the project), sometimes this can lead to pathological cases in which the "owner" dictatorial methods discourage any other user to do any edit at all. This is a sorta of prisoner's dilemma, since you do not want the expert users to be banished by the community just, but at the same time you want to keep it as open as possible.<br />
* '''Vandalism'''. Given a model in which agents either change the content of a page based on their point of view (these concepts have a precise definition) or revert it to a previous "clean" version, how can a community fight off vandal users? I would like to explore this problem with a "neutral"-like model e.g. in which the social phenomenon of vandalism is just explained in terms of "distance" from a point of view (again, these concepts do need and have a precise definition) and a "culture dependent" model, in which vandals form a population on their own and thus a "vandalic" cultural traits exist and is clearly identifiable by the agents.<br />
* '''Community dynamics in terms of double selective pressure'''. This is a generalization of the previous two. These kind of problems suggest that there is a double selective mechanism by which users are "selected" into the community based on its current status (whatever this thing is), and at the same time the community's status is influenced by the users that live in it. A quick example: a Wikipedia plagued by too many vandals would probably discourage the average user to get in and fight vandalism, which makes life easier for vandals etc.<br />
<br />
I would like to explore these problems either with multi-agent simulations or with differential equations. Data are usually not a problem if one wants to study social websites with open API.<br />
<br />
On the other side of the MAS-coin, I'm also interested in general methodological problems of Multi-agent systems modeling.<br />
* '''"Evolving" interactions in MAS'''. I talked briefly about that during the brainstorming session of Wednesday. I think some people were interested in that, so better to talk directly.<br />
* '''Causality in MAS simulations and network motifs'''. Here the idea is to look at/develop algorithms to extract network motifs from multi-agent simulations. One has to use a model in which it is already clear what a causal relationship between two events is (I call these also interactions), or at least use the concept of "cause" used in graphical models. Other big question: once one has this kind information, how to use it?<br />
<br />
I would be interested in pursuing this. There are some good ins'ights on how this was 'managed' in the development of Linux in Raymond's Cathedral and the Bazaar. <br />

=== Financial crisis in Housing Markets ===<br />
After hearing the questions from Dan about market crashes, I got curious about a more recent market crisis, the housing market/home mortgage crunch. Over breakfast a few of us were discussing this and came up with a few questions.<br />
*Is this really a complex system, or just something that is not transparent?<br />
*What happens if the “Fed” had let Bear Stearns go bankrupt?<br />
*What really caused our “crisis”?<br />
Can this be modeled in terms of banks with different risk behaviors/practices?<br />
<br />
-[[Devin_Drown|Devin]]<br />
<br />
This question hooks up with a lot of my interests--from my perspective, the crisis seems to be rooted in a separation between good information at the people who benefit from that information. Would be interested in trying to gain some traction on the questions you raise.<br />

== Working Groups ==<br />
=== Evolutionary Game Theory ===<br />
A few of us were thinking that there wouldn't be enough time to discuss enough topics in EGT in a [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Tutorials#A_Crash_Course_to_Classical_and_Evolutionary_Game_Theory|single tutorial]], so I decided to post an offer for a working group that could meet fairly regularly to read and discuss papers from the field, suggest new topics, and possible projects. So far we've thought about looking at evolutionary branching models (in, say, a colony of yeast that produces an enzyme that can be shared by all individuals of the colony) and extending them from one population to two. <br />
<br />
Please let me know if you'd be interested in joining. Feel free to add your name and topics you'd like to discuss.<br/><br />
&mdash;-[[User:Jreyes|Josh]]<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;"><br/>Update!</span> This has been scheduled on Friday from 3 - 5, location TBD. <br />
<br />
<br />
*I'm interested! Actually, I know nothing about the topic, but I think that it could help me in my research. There is an interesting article about segregation and game theory [[Media:Zhang2004.pdf|(Zhang2004)]]. Maybe this could serve as inspiration for a project. (Flavia)<br />
*I'm interested too. [[Kathleen_Sprouffske|Kathleen]]<br />
<br />
=== Viral Modelling ===<br />
I (Jeremie) propose to set up a workshop on viral modelling (biomathematics, epidemiology, virus kinetics, evolution, networks...). The idea would be that anyone could prepare a short and general introduction to its research area.<br />
Please let me know if you'd be interested in joining. Feel free to add your name and topics you'd like to discuss.<br />
<br />
=== Social (and other?) Networks ===<br />
<br />
There are a number of people who are doing work with or related to social netwworks. Is there interest in a social networks working group? Alternatively, in a more general working group on networks and network based methods (biological, social, etc)?<br />
<br />
Show interest and maybe times for a meeting below:<br />
<br />
[[User:Laura_Feeney|Laura]] -- I'm free this evening; maybe tomorrow evening before tutorial<br />
[[User:Jeremie Guedj|Jeremie]] -- I'm interested also; free tomorrow evening !<br />
<br />
I'd also be interested in this. Tomorrow evening sounds good. [[User: Mark_Rivera | Mark]]<br />
<br />
Tentatively scheduled for 7pm -- [[Laura_Feeney|Laura]]<br />
<br />
Can we move at 6? I would like to attend Béla's tutorial ... [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
=== Theory Group ===<br />
The general will has spoken and set a rough agenda for our joint exploration of the weird intersections between continental philosophy, critical theory, and complexity. We'll start by reading selections from Manuel De Landa's A Thousand Years of Nonlinear History -- Introduction, Sandstone and Granite, Species and Ecosystems, Arguments and Operators, Conclusions and Speculations. There are several copies floating around (if you have one could you please post here and if you need one do the same). We'll meet Sunday morning, to avoid conflict with the hike on Saturday, specific time to be determined.<br />
<br />
We've discussed several next steps, which I'll post after dinner :)<br />

=== Non-equilibrium thermodynamics and the production of entropy ===<br />
I brought with me the textbook [http://books.google.com/books?id=YRjfuEP_QycC&printsec=frontcover&dq=non-equilibrium+thermodynamics+and+the+production+of+entropy&ei=N19HSP-KCoHIigHFiczqBA&client=firefox-a&sig=sXSiqzPEHeNMOjPuyf986eR6Ljc "Non-equilibrium thermodynamics and the production of entropy" by Kleidon and Lorenz] and I have been trying to understand over the last 6 months what it is all about. The claim is that Nature, whatever in turbulence, life or either markets, tries to maximize the entropy *production*. As Stephen Guerin mentioned earlier this week in one of his lecture, entropy increases but when the system is sufficiently nonlinear, the entropy increases the most rapidly possible. Such overall principle enables to predict the evolution of the system. The book has several chapters showing where his principle could be used: turbulence, mean state of the atmosphere of Earth as well as other planets, the shaping of landscape by water, the coupled evolution of the biosphere and atmosphere, Gaia, economic processes, etc. As long as I do not understand where that principle comes from, I will stay skeptical of those claims. Still, if they are right, this can have important consequences in many fields. Go take a look at the book and if you are interested or if you know something about it, drop me a word. Chuss<br />

1) I have a time series of Chlorophyll a taken over 20 years. A Nature paper has claimed that a chaotic model reproduce the observed time series. Simple question: is there any evidence that the observed time series itself be chaotic? That would be a simple application of the Nonlinear Time Series Analysis introduced by Liz. May just be a nice exercise to do, not necessarily a final project. let me know if interesting in helping me.<br />
<br />
2) Lattice-Botlzmann models are quite like the Agent-Based models but they seem better adapted to reproduce fluids in motion: the code is short and I have a couple of them that I got from open sources. I never used them but if anybody is interested to play with it, let me know. we could use the sand table that Redfish has and maybe reproduce some cool stuff such as the flooding of a valley, the breaking of a dam, or something like that!<br />
<br />
3) what about the climate? nobody interested? this is one of the most *complex* system. we could try our hands on simple conceptual model of the climate? <br />

== Open Source research software ==<br />
<br />
Open (no pun intended...) your eyes to the wonderful world of FOSS -- Free and Open Source Software. While the distinction between Free and Open Source is a very interesting one (and highly contentious in the right crowds), for research purposes, we want to use the best tools for the job but some of us suffer from limited income, so I would like to talk about both. At the same time, FOSS is great to use for a non-economic reason: if you find bugs, or design extensions, you can fix them yourself (in OSS, at least) or at least report the problem back to a typically active community. Some potential tools to discuss/explore: R, Octave, Scilab, Gnuplot, perhaps some of the more useful languages in the field like Python and perhaps others I don't know as much about (a quick `apt-cache` on my Ubuntu Hardy install shows RasMol, ClustalW, SeaView, Achilles, complearn, EMBOSS, GENESIS, etc...)<br />
<br />
- I would like to give a "Brazilian" contribution. Those who are interested in GIS&Cia could have a look at [http://www.dpi.inpe.br/gilberto/software.html Free and Open Source GIS Source]. <br />
[[Flavia_Feitosa|Flavia]]<br />
<br />
I would be happy to contribute a little bit about freely available simulation environments like ns-2 (computer networks) and omnet++ (a generic DES) -- Laura<br />
<br />
- For Python I can offer a tutorial (see below). Nish, do you have any experience with [http://www.sagemath.org/ Sage]? [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
All great ideas and I would love to have more of a "You know how to use this tool or you know of this tool, you talk about it" style of tutorial :)<br />
Maybe we can do a general OSS tutorial/discussion and then transition to specific sub-topics in separate tutorials (Python, GIS, networks, etc)?<br />
I've not used Sage, before, but I'm happy to take a look before the tutorial. Thanks for the info, Giovanni!<br />
<br />
<br><br />
I'd like to learn more about open software. [[Holger_Keeler| Paul]]<br />
<br />
== R tutorial ==<br />
I (''[[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]'') know a little bit about R (basic stuff such as common plots and regression analysis) but would like to enhance my R skills. Does anybody have an interest in a R tutorial, too? Please edit this if there is more interest.<br />
<br />
Would be interested in learning about this as well. -[[Devin_Drown|Devin]]<br />
<br />
I would be interested as well. [[Mark_Rivera | Mark]]<br />
<br />
I am fairly familiar with R and could probably run a tutorial... what are you all interested in learning? - Skyler<br />
<br />
I am interesed in it too. Do you familiar with running social network analysis package in R? I want to learn more about it. [[Jiang_Wu| Jiang]]<br />
<br />
== Python tutorial ==<br />
I've (''also [[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]'') interest in a Python tutorial. Please edit this if there is more interest.<br />
<br />
I can give a tutorial on python and on scipy/numpy. I can also talk about coding in general, as python is both a languange which is object oriented, imperative and functional (somehow). We can use the [http://docs.python.org/tut/tut.html python tutorial] itself as a reference for the part about the language, and then move to the basic concepts of the duo [http://numpy.org numpy] / [http://scipy.org scipy], which form a powerful tool to manipulate n-dimensional arrays of numbers and also talk about [http://ipython.scipy.org/moin/ ipython] (the enhanced interactive shell) and the [http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/ pylab] interface, which gives a very nice environment for interactive programming and data analysis. Since pylab has been designed to mimic MATLAB's interface (the major plotting/statistical functions work as expected in both enviroments, which saves you a lot of time if you're used to MATLAB), I can also talk a bit about MATLAB, but being not a big fan of it, it would be better if somebody else stepped in to another tutorial on that. <br />
<br />

<br />
== Neutral models in biology ==<br />
<br />
Already met. Big thanks to Molly! <br />
<br />
There is an interesting [http://arxiv.org/abs/0710.4911 paper] by Cosma Shalizi of SFI about methodological problems in social sciences research in which he talks about the concept of neutral models in evolution models. I was wondering if any of the bio-people can give a tutorial on this topic as I am pretty interested in understanding the concept. [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
I would be very interested in learning about neutral networks too! - Skyler<br />
<br />
== GIS / Spatial Analysis ==<br />
<br />
Space Matters!! Geographical information system (GIS) is a computational system (hardware + database engine) that is designed to assemble, store, update, analyze, manipulate, and display geographically referenced information (data identified by their locations).<br />
<br />
I'm thinking about introducing some basic GIS concepts and a free GIS software known as [http://www.dpi.inpe.br/~flavia/GIS/ Terraview]. We could also explore some spatial analysis techniques (this is the best part!) using Terraview and [http://www.geoda.uiuc.edu/downloadin.php GeoDa] (also free!). <br />

== Statistical Physics for Non-Physicists == <br />
Problem: Textbooks about this are written for physicists. <br />
Solution: A Physicist (or mathematician) that would be so kind and spend few minutes (or maybe hours) to explain all that stuff to people like me(Petr):-)<br />
<br />
[[Ruben_Kubiak|Ruben]]: Do you seek for a general introduction or something specific?<br />
<br />
A crash course in Statistical Physics would be awesome. Let us know. &mdash; [[User:cyepez|Carlos]]<br />
<br />
I am interested too. (Soumya)<br />
<br />
Me too. (Jean)<br />
<br />
Interested! [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br />
<br />
Ditto - Skyler<br />
<br />
Me too. &mdash;[[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br/><br />
<br />
I'd be willing to run such a tutorial. However, I would have to consult with some/all of the interested parties to find out what kind of statphys you want to learn about. There are a huge number of possible topics, one could start with basics like ensembles, or perhaps people are interested in master equation and other non-equilibrium techniques, or maybe critical phenomena is what people are interested in. I really do not know. (Orion)<br />
<br />
Can you give us who are not physicists an introduction about a kind of special questions that you will think it from the viewpoint of physicists? Like complex network, dynamic, also something else, what is the most important measurement and dynamic process you want to observe? -[[Jiang_Wu|Jiang]]<br />
<br />
== Modern Logic and Reasoning ==<br />
Like I mentioned in the 'ice-breaking', I could tell something about application of modern logic into human reasoning. It's a very board topic, and very new. Criticisms are welcome and needed. I would give some basic examples. On top of that, I would also say some development of logic, and how I found it useful in research, which might seem un-related to logic, esp. in social science. I am planning to give a 15 to 20 minutes presentation, UNLESS people want to hear more, in that case, please let me know.<br />

<br />
== Introduction to the Design and Analysis of Computer Experiments ==<br />
How do you find "interesting" behavior when your computer model is too slow or the inputs are too many to try every possible combination? Using an Arctic sea ice simulator example, I will show you how modern statistical methods can help you explore your virtual world more efficiently. Check out this brief<br />
[http://www.stat.sfu.ca/~dbingham/NICDS_CompExpt/research.html overview] or a more technical paper about<br />
[http://www.schonlau.net/publication/jogo98.pdf global optimization].<br />
Time permitting we could also touch on some of the statistical concepts involved, e.g. cross-validation, maximum likelihood estimation, or Bayesian statistics.<br />
[[B%C3%A9la_Nagy|Béla]]<br />
<br />
== Genomics / Central dogma overview ==<br />
It seems like some of you might be interested in an overview of the central dogma of molecular biology to non-biologists. This could be an 1h tutorial on the major actors of gene expression: nucleus, chromosomes, chromatine, DNA, RNA (tRNA, mRNA), proteins, polymerases, ribosomes, transcription factors, and eventually a quick intro to small, non-coding RNAs as a bonus. Although being a bioinformatician by training, I'm happy to leave the way if a "hard core" biologist wants to do this tutorial (Molly ?). Edit if interested! Jean<br />
<br />
I'd be happy to attend a tutorial in 'genomics for idiots' -- Laura<br />
<br />
Me too. I am also interested in metagenomics if this is not too much of course. -- Francois<br />
<br />
I'd like to go to a 'genomics for idiots' tutorial as well. -- [[Srideep_Musuavthy|srideep]]<br />
<br />
== Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning ==<br />
I (Nish) could introduce some of the basic methods in AI/ML. If there is significant interest in the two fields separately, I could do two tutorials. Would probably focus on the higher level, rather than the nitty-gritty details, as well as applications of the methods to real problems. I'm not necessarily an expert, although have a fair amount of experience in the area, so I would prefer a more interactive session, where questions can be answered by everyone.<br />
<br />
Sign me up. &mdash; [[User:cyepez|Carlos]]<br><br />
I'm also interested. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]] <br><br />
Me too! [[Flavia_Feitosa|Flávia]]<br />
<br />
How about "AI/MI for dummies", Nish? I've been wondering about it.... Rio<br />
<br />
== A Crash Course to Classical and Evolutionary Game Theory ==<br />
Game theory is the study of interactive decision making. Classical game theory aims to develop a general theory to describe how rational agents interact strategically. In many cases humans lack the kind of infinite computational power and time assumed by classical game theory. In the early 1970s the biologist John Maynard Smith introduced evolutionary methods to the field, dispensing with the assumption of hyper-rationality while changing many of the concepts central to the field along the way. The result was evolutionary game theory. This new framework has been used to model the behavior of fundamentally non-rational players (such as viruses) as well as humans. <br />
<br />
In this tutorial, I'd try to introduce the basic concepts in both of these fields, namely, the definition of a game, payoffs, the Nash equilibirum and evolutionarily stable strategies, the replicator dynamics. I'll briefly mention the three basic classes of two-strategy games represented by the Prisoner's Dilemma, the Snowdrift Game (sometimes called the Hawk-Dove game or Chicken), and the Stag Hunt Game. Depending on particular interests of the group, we could prove the Bishop-Cannings theorem and give a classification of all symmetric two-strategy games; or look at updating methods and spatial chaos; reputation and image scoring; rock-paper-scissors in biological systems; or evolutionary branching and specialization.<br />
<br />
If there's something else you'd like to know about EGT, shoot me ([mailto:joshua.reyes@removeme.gmail.com Josh]) an email, and I'll see if I can dig up something I know on your topic. I'm not going to require any fancy mathematical background. If you've seen a 2&times;2 matrix before, great. Otherwise, it's not a big deal. We won't multiply them or calculate their eigenvalues. They'll just serve as a means for bookkeeping.<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> Some of us are also thinking about setting up a [[CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Projects_%26_Working_Groups#Evolutionary_Game_Theory|working group]] as well.<br />

<br />
== Resilience of social-ecological systems ==<br />
The resilience perspective is increasingly used as an approach for understanding the dynamics of social–ecological systems. Essential for the resilience perspective is the recognition that living systems are not in equilibrium but rather in a domain of attraction. <br />
Many dynamic systems, however, have multiple domains of attraction. Moreover, self-organizing processes can create or change the shape and depth of this domain of attraction. Within the resilience perspective, new pathways of sustainable development can be represented by crossing a threshold from a domain of attraction and/or by creating new domains. Resilience is a measure of how much change or disruption is required to transform a system from being maintained by one set of mutually reinforcing processes and structures to a different set of processes and structures.<br />
If you are interested we (Mike and Dirk) can introduce you to some of the insights developed by the [http://www.resalliance.org/1.php resiliance alliance] and the challenges we face in understanding these kind of systems.<br />
<br />
I am interested in this too. Richard<br />
<br />
Very interested, any idea of when you will do it? [[Walter_Zesk|Walt]]<br />
<br />
I'm interested as well. Steve<br />
<br />
I'm interested too. - Skyler<br />
<br />
== Introduction to classical control theory ==<br />
I (Srideep) can offer a 'quick' tutorial on control theory/control systems. This is will be a simple introduction to the motivation, basic ideas, issues and jargon in the field. If you are interested, please let me know about your background in linear algebra, complex analysis and calculus. Depending on the background, I might spend more or less time introducing the field. <br />
<br />
Ideally, if you know what eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix are, what a pole of a complex function is and how the solution of a linear differential equation looks like, you are ready to jump right into controls. If the words above don't mean much at all, then we can run a quick 'review' of what they mean intuitively. <br />
you can sign up here or send me an email [mailto:srideep.musuvathy@gmail.com srideep]<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Update!</span> Lets plan on discussing this early next week. Will fix up a time by the end of this week. Liz bradley will be done with her introduction to dynamics and the eigenvalue, eigenvector tutorial will be done this friday. This will make my life easier! :-)<br />
<br />
I'd be very interested in this tutorial. I think I'm basically OK on the prerequisites, <br />
but I wouldn't be annoyed by a review. Perhaps Monday? -- Laura<br />
<br />
I'm in too. I guess I should be ok on linear algebra, calculus and linear ODEs, but I don't know what the pole of a complex function is. Jean<br />
<br />
I'm in. If we can start with 'pole' thing, that would be wonderful. - Masayoshi<br />
<br />
Hi Srideep, please put me in this group. About my background on the subjects you asked; zero!!! Sorry. Rio<br />
<br />
Definitely interested in this. - Jacob<br />
<br />
I'm in. Paul<br />
<br />
Looks cool. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]]<br />
<br />
== Topology/algebra ==<br />
I (Srideep) will also be happy to talk about topology, introducing the concepts of point-set topology. The language of modern mathematics is enshrined in the concepts of point-set topology. I can also talk about group theory and introduce abstract algebra to those interested. In my opinion, it is the most powerful gateway into abstract thinking. sign here or email me [mailto:srideep.musuvathy@gmail.com srideep]<br />
<br />
I'd be very interested in that. Jean<br />

I'd be interested to see what you cover in the topology section. Algebra, however, is for the birds :) Paul<br />
<br />
Srideep, can you do an introduction to category theory? Or would you be interested in co-organizing a tutorial with me? - Jacob<br />
<br />
I'm very interested. Abby<br />

== Eigenvalues - what are they and how to find them? ==<br />
I (Kolbjørn) can put together a brief and elementary introduction to eigenvalues and eigenvectors if anyone have an urge for this. Sign up or e-mail and we'll schedule something. [mailto:kolbjorn@chalmers.se Kolbjørn]<br />
<br />
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">UPDATE!</span> Time: Friday June 6th, 01.00 p.m. - 03.00 p.m. If this collides with other stuff, please yell out! [[CSSS 2008 Santa Fe-Schedule]]<br />
<br />
Yes please. [[Kathleen_Sprouffske|Kathleen]]<br />
<br />
I am also very interested [[Walter_Zesk|Walt]]<br />

I'm in as well [[ Mark_Rivera|Mark]]<br />
<br />
Please - have always been kind of confusing to me. [[Jonathan_Zelner|Jon]]<br />

Let me in - Masayoshi<br />
<br />
I'm also interested! [[ Flavia_Feitosa|Flavia]]<br />

== How your computer works ==<br />
<br />
Nish and Laura can give a joint tutorial on 'how your computer works'. What happens when I type 'www.santafe.edu' in my browser? How does a web server at santafe.edu handle all those incoming requests? What happens when I use a WiFi access point? Basically, we'd be happy to take your questions about how your computer works and do our best to answer them - we're also happy to have other co-tutors. <br />
<br />
Let us know if there's interest [mailto:lmfeeney@sics.se Laura], we'd probably schedule later next week, to not conflict with tutorials that focus on maths and other project prerequisites.<br />
<br />
== How your hardware works ==<br />
Along the same lines as the computer tutorial, I've found myself discussing hardware with a number of folks. And why hardware matters from a massive parallelism perspective (which is quite common in the complex research areas I've encountered). If folks are interested, I can give a rough overview of the way hardware works in different types of computers and supercomputers (as much as I understand of it) as well as how to best leverage that knowledge.<br />
<br />
== Computational Physics for Non-physicists or A small introduction into Applied Physics ==<br />
<br />
I've seen that many people are interested in physics. I could give an introduction to "computational" physics - this means physics with a PC. Actually, it is very broad and gives some basics for simulations (interesting for all simulation-folks):<br />
<br />
- What is a 'random number generator' and why should I know something about it?<br />
<br />
- What are Master-equations?<br />
<br />
- The Ising-model / Voter-model<br />
<br />
- The Central Limit Theorem or why does it make sense to average over multiple runs of a simulation?<br />
<br />
- ...<br />

<br />
I'm in too. [[Jiang_Wu|Jiang]]<br />
<br />
[[Srideep_Musuvathy|srideep]] is in.<br />
Sounds great. [[Molly_Rorick|Molly]]<br />
<br />
==Information Theory==<br />
An open discussion of Shannon information theory (would like some help in presenting this part clearly) and then some newer results from its application to cellular automata (and potentially other complex systems).<br />
<br />
Interesting. I remember something from the master course I took. [[User:Giovanni|Giovanni]]<br><br />
I'd love to participate. -[[Sarah_Cobey|Sarah]]<br><br />
I'm interested.[[Holger_Keeler|Paul]]<br><br />
I'm in. --[[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br />
<br />
==Cellular Automata==<br />
CAs (particularly ECAs) are a very interested model of computation. How do 8 rules (ECA 110, e.g.) emulate a Turing Machine? Why is that interesting? What can we learn about what defines computation given CAs? Maybe we can also discuss some simple computational (Turing) theory.<br />
<br />
==A little analytical tool-box: Non-linear dynamics, ODEs, PDEs...==<br />
The [[David_Foster|brothers]] [[Jacob_Foster|Foster]] would be happy to offer some tutorials on analytical methods. Depending on what Alfred Hubler covers, we can do some fraction of Strogatz (flows on the line & circle, bifurcations, maybe linear systems, index theorem, etc.), as well as offering a basic introduction to solving linear ODEs (no theorems, just techniques) and simple PDEs like the heat equation, with boundary conditions. Ideally this would come after Kolbjørn's eigen-stuff course, so we can just assume familiarity with that.<br />
<br />
These are fun topics! I never get enough of them! -- [[Srideep_Musuvathy|srideep]]<br><br />
Sounds great. [[Molly_Rorick|Molly]]<br><br />
Interesting -- sure. [[User:Lfriedl|Lisa]]<br />
<br />
==Linguistics==<br />
Can someone (I don't know [[Peter_Graff|who]]) perhaps offer a tutorial on basic linguistics stuff? I am particularly interested in generative grammar and coverage of the Chomsky "Three Models" paper, but maybe there are more interesting topics to be discussed these days... -Jacob</div>Abbrownhttps://wiki.santafe.edu/index.php?title=Abigail_Brown&diff=13999Abigail Brown2008-06-05T03:21:05Z<p>Abbrown: </p>

<br />
I'm a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Technology, Sydney in their School of Finance and Economics. My degree is in policy analysis from the RAND Graduate School in Santa Monica. My research interests include the effect of financial reporting fraud on economic learning, technological development and consumer welfare. I can't wait to come to Santa Fe--a dream come true.<br />
<br />
Main interests: Other than an instinctive fascination with anything and everything that falls under the label “complex systems,” my main interests in this context are how information and, most interestingly, misinformation gets spread and used throughout a group. <br />
<br />
Expertise: I’m expecting to be on the weaker end of the technical ability spectrum, but I suppose I will be bringing fairly extensive expertise in game theory.<br />
<br />
Goals: I’d like to get a fair distance up the learning curve on the technical skills needed to be a serious researcher in the area. I’m also interested in learning more about how to think about transferring insights from agent-based models and the like to some sort of statement about how real social systems actually work. <br />
<br />
Project ideas: I’d love to continue to work in my current area of how financial statement fraud (and other forms of profit misrepresentation, intentional or otherwise) affects the real economy, competition, and technological innovation and uptake. Perhaps explore parallels to fitness misrepresentation in biology (assuming parallels exist!).</div>Abbrownhttps://wiki.santafe.edu/index.php?title=CSSS_2008_Santa_Fe-Projects_%26_Working_Groups&diff=13758CSSS 2008 Santa Fe-Projects & Working Groups2008-06-03T19:10:14Z<p>Abbrown: /* Potential Projects */</p>

== Potential Projects ==<br />
<br />
=== Antagonistic interspecific interactions ===<br />
After chatting with several people about host-parasite systems and hearing some of the comments at the icebreaker, I want to see if others are interested in potential projects in this area. As a way of getting some brain storming started, I’ve just typed up some topics (these include ideas I’ve heard from others here at Santa Fe) to see if there is critical mass and an interesting question.<br />
<br />
Topics (no particular order)<br />
*Impact of immune system on host-parasite (/pathogen) interaction<br />
*Impact of heterogeneous hosts<br />
*Infectious diseases: epidemic outbreaks vs. endemic steady states<br />
*Direct vs. vector transmission of parasites/pathogens<br />
*Non-genetic transmission of disease resistance<br />
*Effects of pathogen competition on epidemic outbreaks<br />
*Spatial heterogeneity of transmission of parasites<br />
<br />
'''Interested?''' Please add ideas that you find interesting or would like to explore more (or just your name).<br />

<br />
=== Biological Levels / Phenotypes Discussion ===<br />
We have a number of folks here either interested in or studying biology at various levels. I am interested in talking about ways in which it makes sense integrate different levels of biological knowledge into a representation of a system. For example, how might microRNA predictions be combined with gene expression networks (or proteomics or SNPs) to lead to a phenotype. <br />
<br />
I am also interested in questions of how phenotypes are defined. Within an organ state (e.g., disease or not) for example, a phenotype might be defined as a gene expression pattern, a growth rate, a panel of microsatellite lengths, or functionally by in vivo or ex vivo capabilities to self-renew, etc. If what we are trying to understand is a larger question of disease or functionality, which phenotypes are interesting and useful (and possible!) to use?<br />
<br />
I think these questions can be approached from a variety of ways. Off the top of my head, perhaps multi-scaled modeling or examining the system as a multi-level evolutionary system... I'm sure there are many others.<br />
<br />
If you are interested, add your name and we can set up a time / place to talk about these and related questions.<br />
<br />
=== Something in Neuroscience ===<br />
I (Nish) would really like to do some more intensive, deep research in Neuroscience (Computational being my perspective). While I am fascinated by neurological and behavioral diseases, I would be open to any kind of neuroscientific problem. Anyone else?<br />
<br />
=== Asymetric co-evolution in space/time ===<br />
[http://www.santafe.edu/events/workshops/index.php/Dirk_van_Apeldoorn I] would be interested studing dynamic networks that have different rates and/or distributions. You could think of a ecological interaction example of parasites that are distributed by wind and have a lifspan of a few weeks, and plants that are spatially contstraint and have an annual lifespan. Or a social-ecological example of people managing a certain natural resource.<br />
<br />
Dirk<br />
<br />
=== Evolving skepticism ===<br />
I'd like to do anything relating to the introduction of misinformation into a system, but one concrete suggestion is looking at how one might evolve a skeptical response to defend against being "defrauded" (this could be in a social science or biological system).<br />
