Complex Systems and Networks in Social Insects

In this course we will compare social networks of humans and animals with gene networks, food webs, robot groups, and other systems composed of multiple interacting units. How do such decentralized, self-organized groups function? What are similarities and differences? Can researchers of one system learn from the insights of other fields? We will also talk about some hands-on methods for analyzing such systems.
