Complex Systems Summer School 2011 Modules

Organized by Simon DeDeo and James O'Dwyer


For the upcoming Emergence module, there will be two options at the practical Tuesday afternoon:

1. for those who have group projects that they are excited about, James and I will join in discussions about how concepts and tools from the lectures can be usefully applied.

2. for those who want focused practice, we will have a guided practical, outlined on the worksheet, on topological defects and the dynamics of phase transitions as applied to physical, biological and social systems.
