Aaron Clauset [homepage] has been a post-doctoral fellow at the Santa Fe Institute since 2006 and is an alumnus of the CSSS 2003 (Santa Fe).

Santa Fe School

This year, Clauset will deliver a lecture on Markov chain Monte Carlo methods for simulation and inference in complex systems. To be best prepared for the lecture, you should take a look at these papers. The first is the most relevant, with the others being more background material.

Beijing School

Clauset will deliver three lectures; two will cover the basics of complex networks and network analysis, and one will cover the estimation and validation of power-law distributions in empirical data. To be best prepared for the lecture, you should take a look at these two papers.
