Complex Systems Summer School 2011

If you'd like to work on a project with other members of the group, please use this page to organize your thoughts and efforts. We'll schedule a time when we can show off your work towards the end of the program.

Meeting with Geoffrey West

A group of us were interested to continue a discussion with Geoffrey West following his lecture this evening. We will be meeting over lunch next Wednesday 15th June at SFI in the medium conference room. Please add your name to the below list if you would like to attend.

Potential Project

I'd like to play around with the idea of using chaotic attractors to create music, as introduced by Liz Bradley. If anyone else is interested, please say so below! Ideally, I'd love to create a new piece of music (perhaps even recording a few of the budding musicians at the summer school if possible!), pull the individual parts of the composition apart and then use chaotic attractors to put them back together in new (and constantly evolving) ways. I have music production software on my laptop that we can use as a backbone, but we'd need to work out how to program something so that the differential equations controlled it (or otherwise figure out how to use the DEs to make a composition that we then record within the software - perhaps an easier option!) I'd like to hear other people's ideas about what elements of the piece the chaotic attractors could be used to manipulate - Liz's example only used them to re-order pitch, but I'm sure there are other things that we could do too. Hopefully this could be a project that we could play with in our spare time - I'm also looking to join in with a more academic project too, but I think this could potentially be a very enjoyable side-project. -Martin Gould

The CSSS11-network challenge

Today the Networks Module has started. One of the well-known examples of a network, is a social network. Did you realize you have been working hard on an (almost) completely new social network in the past few days?

How do these networks come in to place? How do we make friends? Will we be a fully connected network? How many hubs do we have - and can we explain how these hubs come in to place?

This is an excellent opportunity to find some answers to these questions!

The idea is to base the results on the contacts people make. Simply put: who did you have a conversation with? By noting this regularly, we can see the connectedness and sorts of the network evolve over time.

The plan is to collect data on
1) The evolvement of the network over time, in terms of nr of contacts (conversations lasting over 10 minutes) per approx. 2 days
2) The 'final' network, as in the people you feel connected to (would like to contact for science or social activities)

All results will be processed anonymously and will appear (at the end of the summerschool) on the wiki.

We need your help off course, to answer these questions.
The first survey can be found at: www.thesistools.com/web/?id=20584

If you are interested in this project, I will organize some discussion meeting (probably in the next week). For now: add your name to the list below, and send in the survey! (while encouraging as much of your connections as you can to do so, too ;) )

If you have any questions, send a message to ehuk at rsm dot nl.

Thank you so much for your help!
