Centre of Excellence for Mathematics and Statistics of Complex Systems
- The ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematics and Statistics of Complex Systems, namely MASCOS, stimulates and hones research activity in order to understand and manage these complex systems.
Such research focuses on three flagship applications that reflect key societal concerns underpinned by complex systems: accurate assessment of financial risk; security of large engineering grids; and control of emerging pests, diseases and pathogens. Tackling these and other key applications such as climate modelling, draws upon a variety of mathematical and statistical techniques which form the backbone of research into the solution of the flagship applications.
MASCOS is engaged in an extensive and vigorous outreach program encompassing schools, commerce, industry, and the broader research community. It is intended to raise the profile and reinforce the importance of the mathematical sciences across the spectrum of Australia’s scientific and technological development.
MASCOS operates from four nodes: The University of Melbourne, The University of New South Wales, La Trobe University, and The University of Queensland.
