2001 Complex Systems Summer School Budapest

An intensive introduction to complex behavior in mathematical, physical, living, and social systems for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the sciences and social sciences. Open to students in all countries. Students are expected to choose one school and attend the full four weeks.

Week 1 -Intensive series of lectures and laboratories introducing foundational ideas and tools of complex systems research. The topics will include nonlinear dynamics and pattern formation, statistical mechanics and stochastic processes, information theory and computation theory, adaptive computation, computer modeling tools, and specific applications of these core topics to various disciplines.

Weeks 2 and 3 - Lectures and panel discussions on current research in complex systems. The topics this year are:

  • Origin and Early Evolution of Life (Santa Fe and Budapest)
  • Nonstandard Approaches to Computation (Santa Fe and Budapest)
  • Geophysics and Climate Modeling (Santa Fe)
  • Self-Organization and Collective Behavior (Budapest)

Week 4 - Completion and presentation of student projects.
