CSSS 2010 Santa Fe-Readings
From Santa Fe Institute Events Wiki
|CSSS Santa Fe 2010|
Please review readings before lectures. Supplemental material may be posted as well.
Please see the Background Readings page for assignments.
- Numerical Solution of Differential Equations
- Time Series Analysis
Here is a link to a page with various background readings -- I'll be talking about some of this material, watch the wiki for days/times
- Complexity. An Informative Itinerary
- Collective Cognition in Animal Groups
- Collective Motion and Cannibalism in Locust Migratory Bands
- Collective Minds
- Effective Leadership and Decision-Making in Animal Groups on the Move
For the two lectures on "Physics of Reasoning" --
- E.T. Jaynes, Information Theory and Statistical Mechanics I.
- Gasper, Schneidman, Berry & Bialek, Ising models for networks of real neurons
- Reiss, Hammerich & Montroll, Thermodynamic treatment of nonphysical systems -- the off-site fulltext is available.
more advanced --
- Spin Glasses and Biology (ed. Daniel Stein) (available at SFI library)
- Park & Newman, Statistical Mechanics of Networks
- A.R. Liddle, How many cosmological parameters?
If you only have time to read one, read Jaynes! If you are unable to access any of these articles, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Steve Guerin and I will present modeling with NetLogo. It will have two parts, one a self-paced wiki tutorial, the second a set of real world examples of modeling we've used professionally.
Read the first page of the tutorial. Then (attempt!) to download, install, and look at the Model Library.
